Latest SPAC News: Singapore’s Carousell is considering a U.S. listing via SPAC, Asian investors remain hot on SPACs, and NYSE’s President calls for transparency 


Singapore’s Carousell Explores U.S. Listing Via SPAC

Singapore’s online marketplace operator Carousell Pte is considering a U.S. listing via a merger with a blank-check company, according to Bloomberg.

The startup is working with an adviser on the potential transaction that could value the company at as much as $1.5 billion.


Asian Investors And Targets Remain Hot On SPACs, As Fundraising By Blank Check Companies Cool

Asian investors and target companies in the region remain keen on SPACs, with more than a dozen blank check companies with ties to Asia seeking to go public in the United States in the past two months alone.

The fundraising push by Asian sponsors comes even as fatigue is setting in among some institutional investors and the US SEC raised questions in April about the accounting for stock warrants common to most SPAC deals, effectively pouring cold water on what has been one of the hottest fundraising trends in the past two years.


NYSE’s Cunningham Sees Heightened Scrutiny of SPACs on Horizon 

New York Stock Exchange President Stacey Cunningham said SPACs can expect increased regulation and calls for transparency amid heightened scrutiny from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

“It makes a lot of sense for the SEC to look at whether or not there are additional protections and additional disclosures that might be appropriate in this market,” Cunningham said in a Bloomberg Television interview. “It’s going to be really important that SPACs are providing information and transparency into how they’re structured so investors have that visibility.”
