Turmeric Acquisition Corp. (TMPM) to Liquidate Trust
Turmeric Acquisition Corp. (TMPM) to Liquidate Trust
by Nicholas Alan Clayton on 2022-10-10 at 7:34am

Turmeric Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:TMPM) announced this morning that it has opted to liquidate its trust, dispersing approximately $10.05 per share to holders.

The SPAC’s shares will cease trading as of the open on October 20. Turmeric will hold on to up to $100,000 of accrued interest to pay for dissolution expenses.

Turmeric originally raised $97.8 million in its October 2020 IPO and endeavored to combine with an “off-the-radar” life sciences company with promising drug candidates for oncology or rare diseases. This has been a particularly tricky field for SPACs seeking to achieve near-term returns in recent years.

Of the 33 drug discovery or development biotech companies that have completed SPAC transactions dating back to May 2019, only one closed Friday above $10 – Immatics Biotechnologies (NASDAQ:IMTX). It completed its combination with ARYA Sciences I in June 2020.

Turmeric becomes the 35th SPAC to announce its intention to liquidate in 2022, 28 of which have already completed their liquidations.
