by Nicholas Alan Clayton on 2024-02-02 at 7:50am

Should de-SPAC’d companies consider buying back their shares rather than making offers for their warrants? Abacus Life (NASDAQ:ABL) believes the answer is yes.

This week, we catch up with with Abacus Life Chairman and CEO Jay Jackson. He tells us why he thinks his company’s stock has managed to perform well in the six months since closing its SPAC combination with East Resources and why he has taken the unorthodox decision to buy back shares rather than deal immediately Abacus Life’s warrant overhang.

We also discuss the future of the company’s business of acquiring life insurance policies and how it is now engaging directly with policy holders and the insurance issuers as clients. With many years at work investing in such policies, what has the data told Abacus Life about longevity and long-term health itself?

Give it a listen
