Are Netherlands and Luxembourg taking over as the European hubs for SPACs?
Background:
SPACs, which allow investors to pool resources in a public investment vehicle with the intent to acquire existing businesses, is far from being a new concept. However, they have recently become one of the hottest market trends in the private equity space. Globally, SPACs have raised nearly US$100bn from IPOs in the first quarter of 2021, already surpassing all of 2020, according to financial data provider Refinitiv. In the US alone, SPACs represented about 60 percent of all IPOs in 2020.

This webinar will discuss the rising popularity of SPACs in Europe and the features that are enabling the Netherlands and Luxembourg to quickly become domiciles of choice for SPACs in the continent.

Discussion points:
o Why are SPACs gaining traction in Europe?
o What are the differences in US and European listing rules that make US exchanges more SPAC-friendly?
o Why are SPACs being used increasingly as funding structures by PE firms?
o How can Luxembourg and Netherlands be used as domiciles for SPACs and how can the passport mechanism set forth in the Prospectus Regulation be used to list these vehicles on the Paris or Frankfurt Stock Exchange? What other features make the countries attractive?
o Will the reforms undertaken by the London Stock Exchange around SPACs make London the preferred domicile for SPACs?
o Is the growing popularity of SPACs simply a bubble waiting to burst, or is the trend here to stay?
