Latest SPAC News: Shares in Better claw back some lost ground, Ashington to acquire heart failure innovator Calon, and Logiq sees revenue growth ahead of merger
SoftBank-backed mortgage lender Better steady after bleak debut
Shares in Better Home & Finance Holding (NASDAQ:BETR) clawed back some lost ground in early trading on Friday, after the online mortgage lender plunged in a dismal debut a day earlier following a merger with a blank-check company.
The company’s shares climbed 7% to $1.23 by 09:40 a.m. ET on Friday. They had finished Thursday’s session down 93.4%.
Better planned to go public via a $6 billion special-purpose acquisition company merger with Aurora Acquisition Corp in 2021, but delayed the deal amid a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry and multiple rounds of layoffs.
