SPAC Tied to Trump’s Social Media Venture Sinks as Downloads Slump 95%

Shares of the blank-check firm bringing Donald Trump’s media venture public are sinking with daily downloads for the former president’s social media app declining 95% since launching last month.

Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:DWAC), the special-purpose acquisition company merging with Trump Media & Technology Group, has shed 31% of its value since shares soared late in February when the Truth Social app launched on the Apple App Store.


SPAC Seizes on SEC’s Proposed Rules to Fight Investor Suit

A blank-check company co-founded by Noam Gottesman told a court that newly proposed SEC rules support its legal defense against an investor.

The company’s filing appears to be the first to invoke the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission proposal in a legal battle over whether certain SPACs are really investment companies.

The rules would require SPACs to disclose more information about their sponsors and potential conflicts of interest. Gottesman’s SPAC, Go Acquisition (NYSE:GOAC), which he founded with Hertz Global Holdings Inc. Chairman Greg O’Hara, told a federal judge in a letter Thursday that the rules bolster Go’s case against the investor, George Assad.


France’s InVivo Plans Retail Tie-Up With Neil-Backed SPAC

French agribusiness group InVivo has entered exclusive negotiations to merge its retail activities with 2MX Organic, an acquisition vehicle backed by French telecoms billionaire Xavier Niel, the companies said on Thursday.

The planned deal is based on a 675 million euro ($748 million) enterprise value for InVivo Retail, they said.


EV Startup Faraday Future Tumbles After Disclosing SEC Probe

Faraday Future Intelligent Electric Inc.’s (NASDAQ:FFIE) stock plunged after the electric-vehicle startup revealed it’s under investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Members of the management team and employees recently received subpoenas related to a formal probe of the company, Faraday said Thursday in a statement. The company is “cooperating fully” with the investigation, which Faraday said is related to an internal inquiry previously underway.

Faraday had been looking into false representations made by executives to investors around its 2021 merger with Property Solutions Acquisition Corp.
