Latest SPAC News: Hong Kong’s second SPAC deal on hold, and Harley-Davidson delivers first quarter results

Hong Kong’s Second SPAC Deal Put on Hold, Source Says, Clouding Prospects

A blank-check firm backed by VMS Asset Management has paused plans to go public in Hong Kong due to highly volatile markets, clouding Hong Kong prospects for SPACs.

Vivere Lifesciences Acquisition Corp’s $130 million SPAC share sale, set to have been Hong Kong’s second, is waiting for markets to stabilize before opening its books.

The pause comes just months after regulators in January allowed blank-cheque companies to list on Hong Kong’s stock exchange, to compete with rival bourses and tap demand for such investment vehicles.


Harley-Davidson Delivers First Quarter Financial Results

Harley-Davidson, Inc. (“Harley-Davidson”) (NYSE:HOG) today reported first quarter results.

HDMC saw revenue growth of 6 percent driven by global motorcycle pricing and growth across Parts & Accessories and Apparel. HDMC Operating Income margin of 15.6%, which was down 2.9 points versus last year; global pricing was able to offset cost inflation, but margin was negatively impacted by lower shipments due to the ongoing semi-conductor shortage.

The company also reported the merger transaction between LiveWire and AEA-Bridges Impact Corporation (NYSE:IMPX) is on track to close in mid-2022.
