SPACs, or special purpose acquisition companies, have been making significant headlines in 2020. SPAC IPOs have raised a record amount of capital this year, and a number of high-profile SPAC business combination transactions have recently been completed or announced. As SPAC sponsors increasingly focus on the life sciences and healthcare industry, many companies in the space are wondering whether they should consider a SPAC business combination as a possible alternative to a traditional IPO.
