Latest SPAC News: Trump-tied SPAC drops after deal delay, Brazil’s Semantix ready to put money to work, and Australian Foreign Investment Board approves Metal’s acquisition

Trump-Tied SPAC Drops on Report It Can’t Get Deadline Push

Investors dumped shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:DWAC), the blank-check firm set to merge with Donald Trump’s social media company, after a report said it failed to get enough support for an extension to complete the deal.

Executives at the special purpose acquisition company don’t expect to get enough shareholder support for a one-year extension to complete a deal with Trump Media & Technology Group, Reuters reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The shares fell as much as 21% to $19.70 on Tuesday, the lowest since the deal was announced in October, while warrants tied to the SPAC sank 17%.


Amid SPAC Rout, Brazil’s Semantix Ready to Put Money to Work

Brazilian data software provider Semantix Inc. (NASDAQ:STIX) has seen its shares sink 60% since going public in early August after completing a merger with Alpha Capital, a special purpose acquisition company, amid a slump in the tech industry.

But with the $127 million that it raised in the process, it’s eyeing more acquisitions, looking to grow headcount and open a new office in the US in anticipation of a rebound for the beaten down sector, chief executive officer Leonardo Santos and board member Rafael Steinhauser said in an interview.
