Latest SPAC News: Bitdeer debuts fund targeting distressed miners, Harley-Davidson EV unit LiveWire’s shares rise 24%

Crypto Tycoon’s Bitdeer Debuts Fund Targeting Distressed Miners

Chinese crypto billionaire Jihan Wu is setting up a $250 million fund to buy distressed assets from Bitcoin miners, as the industry reels from this year’s steep drop in digital-asset prices.

Wu’s Bitdeer Technologies Holding Co. plans to invest $50 million as part of a junior tranche, meaning the firm’s investment will be first at risk if the fund loses money. It aims to raise another $200 million from outside investors such as family offices, venture capital firms, alternative investment funds and other mining companies, a representative from Bitdeer told Bloomberg News.

Singapore-based Bitdeer has emerged as a major Bitcoin miner, with facilities across the US and Norway. Last November, the firm filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission to go public through a $4 billion business combination with Blue Safari (NASDAQ:BSGA), which was originally set to be completed on June 14. The deal has since been pushed back, with Bitdeer filing this month for a second extension that would delay the closing until Dec. 14.


Harley EV unit LiveWire’s shares jump in debut after $1.8 bln SPAC merger 

Shares of LiveWire, the electric motorcycle subsidiary of Harley-Davidson Inc (NYSE:HOG), jumped as much as 24% in their U.S. market debut on Tuesday following the unit’s $1.77 billion merger with a blank-check firm.

The backdoor listing makes LiveWire as the first and only EV motorcycle company in the United States to debut on the New York Stock Exchange. Last year, the EV unit agreed to merge with special purpose acquisition company AEA-Bridges Impact Corp.
