For those that don’t know, SPAC stands for “special purpose acquisition company.” This is a public company that it created for the sole purpose of merging with another company to take it public. This typically has the merged company adopting the previously-private company’s name and changing its stock ticker.

This week’s SPAC merger news has seen a fair few companies choose it as a way to enter the public market.
