eToro Targeting $1B Funding Round After SPAC Stalls

The trading company that was bogged down by a protracted prospectus and regulatory process did not manage to complete its SPAC merger at a valuation of $10.3 billion in time and now seems to understand that it will not be able to go public as it has planned. While eToro continues to work to complete the SPAC merger, it is also in advanced stages of completing a massive private funding round of between $800 million and $1 billion. However, the valuation of the company in the round is set to only be around $5-6 billion.

The Betsy Cohen-backed blank-check company FinTech Acquisition Corp V (NASDAQ:FTCV) which was set to merge with eToro already announced back in January that the fintech company’s valuation has been cut by over 15% to $8.8 billion.
