Chinh Chu, who lead the 2016 $600 million CF Corporation, looking to file SPAC #2  

U.S. News and World Report just released an article stating that Chinh Chu, a former Blackstone Group dealmaker, has partnered with Pinnacle Foods Chairman Roger Deromedi, for a new SPAC focused on the consumer sector.

The SPAC is reportedly expected later this year and Chu, Deromedi and Jason Giordano (another ex-Blackstone colleague on the team), have already hired investment banks. Deal size is rumored to be in the $500 million range.

This would be Chinh Chu’s second SPAC, following the $600 million CF Corp., which bought U.S. annuities and life insurer Fidelity & Guaranty Life in a deal worth around $1.84 billion.

Any guesses as to which banks are going to underwrite this one? If CF Corp. is any indication, Citigroup, Credit Suisse and BofA were on the cover.  Sounds like a nice line-up for SPAC #2.
