Follow this list to discover and track the most active SPACs by daily trading volume. Investopedia describes a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) as "a company with no commercial operations that is formed strictly to raise capital through an initial public offering (IPO) for the purpose of acquiring an existing company." They are also known as "blank check companies."

SPACs revealed to investors and companies that there are faster and simpler ways to go public than a traditional IPO. If direct listings were previously the hype, SPACs are the new direct listing buzz today. In fact, SPACs have been around for decades and in recent years they have become more established as some notable companies have gone public through SPACs. Additionally, SPACs have attracted many high-profile names and investors which make them even more attractive.

    Microsoft cloud partner AvePoint going public via merger with blank-check company Apex Technology

    AvePoint Inc., a data management provider and Microsoft Corp. cloud partner, is going public through a merger with blank-check company Apex Technology Acquisition Corp. , in deal valuing the equity value of the combined company at $2 billion. Apex's stock rallied 2.7% in morning trading on volume of 4.7 million shares, which compares with the full-day average of about 119,000 shares. AvePoint will be the name of the combined company, and the stock will remain listed on the Nasdaq exchange, under a new ticker symbol "AVPT." The company will be led by AvePoint co-Founder and Chief Executive Dr. Tianyi Jiang. The impact of COVID-19 and the growth of Microsoft's cloud solutions, including Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, have accelerated demand for our products," Jiang said. "Going public now gives us the ability to meet this demand and scale up faster across product innovation, channel marketing, international markets, and customer success initiatives." The company is going public at a time that the Renaissance IPO ETF has hiked up 28.0% over the past three months while the S&P 500 has gained 5.6%.
