Congratulations to BofA Merrill Lynch!

BAML is the 2019 SPACInsider Underwriters League Tournament Champion!

As winner, BAML will be receiving the SPACInsider Underwriters League Champion Award, sponsored by Refresh Creations.

(Below is a picture of last year’s award. A new one is being created for BAML)



First Place: BofA

Second Place:  BTIG

Third Place:  Deutsche Bank

Voting was back and forth all day, and while BTIG won in the final round 50.5% to 49.5%, BAML had more TOTAL votes carried through in all four of their rounds, which means they were the ultimate winner!!  But as you can see in the table below, it was very, very close.  BAML beat out fifteen competitors to take home the grand prize with a total of 269 votes throughout the competition.

Honorable mention goes to BTIG, which really brought out the vote and played hard!  Amazing job and well done for all the competitors.

It’s been an incredible first half of 2019 for SPACs and we expect the second half of the year to be even busier. So we hope you enjoyed this mid-year break of a little fun and competition.   Did someone say “Re-Match”??
