NerdWallet | June 30, 2021

SPACs have grown exponentially, catching the attention of regulators and leading to the intervention of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). SPACs have raised over USD106bn in initial public offerings so far in 2021 – more than that raised from 2003 to 2019. Amid this boom, the SEC announced new accounting guidelines for SPACs on 12 April.
