Latest SPAC News: HighPeak Energy explores sale, Bitcoin Depot strengthens U.S. footprint with new retail partnerships, and Intuitive Machines agrees to deliver AstroForge to space


U.S. oil producer HighPeak Energy says it will explore sale

HighPeak Energy Inc (NASDAQ: HPK), an oil-focused exploration and production company operating in the heart of the Permian basin, said on Monday it would explore strategic options including possible sale of the company.

U.S. energy producers have enjoyed stellar returns in the last two years, buoyed by higher oil prices stemming from the economic rebound from the pandemic and disruption to supply markets caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

A sale would be viewed as a lucrative win for oil and gas veteran Hightower and his team, with HighPeak taken public through a 2020 merger with Pure Acquisition Corp, a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) affiliated with Hightower, at a $1.58 billion enterprise value.
