SPACs are turning to expensive sources of financing to push their deals in a fresh sign of stress in what had been one of the hottest corners of Wall Street, according to the Financial Times.  Several companies that recently announced plans to go public through merging with a blank-check company have recently raised cash to fund the deals by issuing convertible bonds.

“The PIPE market has basically been shut so it isn’t surprising that you’re seeing these types of structures,” said a senior bank executive who works on financing for SPAC deals. “But, it’s a last resort.”
