Latest SPAC News:  Canoo shares double following Walmart order, ReNew becomes first Indian renewable energy company to refinance dollar-denominated bonds, and Getaround brings contactless carsharing to NYC

Canoo Shares Double on Walmart Order for 4,500 Electric Vans

Canoo Inc. (NASDAQ:GOEV) shares doubled in value after the struggling electric-vehicle startup won an order for 4,500 vans from Walmart Inc.

The deal announced in a statement Tuesday is a boon to Canoo, which ended the first quarter with just $105 million in cash. The company recently moved its headquarters to Walmart’s hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas, and warned in May of substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

Canoo shares jumped $2.45 to $4.84 at 9:35 a.m. in New York, valuing the company at about $1.2 billion. Its market capitalization is still down from about $4.8 billion in late 2020, when the startup went public by merging with a special purpose acquisition company.


ReNew Becomes First Indian Renewable Energy Company To Refinance Dollar-Denominated Bonds

ReNew Energy Global plc (‘ReNew’ or ‘the Company’) (NASDAQ: RNW) (NASDAQ: RNWWW), India’s leading renewable energy company, announced today that it has successfully refinanced its 2024 maturity dollar-denominated bonds with amortising project debt from an Indian nonbank financial company, becoming the first Indian renewable energy company to do so.

ReNew issued bonds (‘RPVIN 6.67% 24s’ or ‘Bonds’) worth US$ 525 million in 2019, which were set to mature in 2024. By refinancing the dollar-denominated bonds ahead of time, ReNew has shown strong and continued access to domestic debt capital, as well as an ability to proactively manage refinancing risk.

RMG Acquisition Corporation II completed its business combination with ReNew Power Private Ltd. last summer on August 16, 2021.


Getaround Brings Contactless Carsharing to New York City

Getaround, the world’s leading digital peer-to-peer carsharing marketplace, today announced that the groundbreaking Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing Program Act will now allow the platform to be widely available for all New Yorkers. At today’s press conference, city and state representatives, including Lincoln Restler, Andrew Gounardes and Carlina Rivera spoke alongside Getaround executives to share how this shift will enable New York residents to access a convenient, contactless, sustainable, and affordable mobility solution via carsharing.

On May 11, 2022, Getaround announced its entry into a definitive business combination agreement with InterPrivate II Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: IPVA).
