The special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) flourished during 2020, and SPAC transactions are included in the 2021 edition of the Mergerstat Review. A SPAC is a shell company that raises capital in an IPO and then acquires an operating company to form a new merged entity. The Mergerstat Review features tables to highlight aggregate deal volumes and deal values for your analysis. Also, the FAQ page has been updated for the new edition. The 2021 edition will be available in mid-April in PDF format and early May for the print edition.

Mergerstat Review is an annual publication (with monthly updates) that presents compiled statistics relating to U.S. and cross-border mergers and acquisitions that involve both publicly traded and privately held companies. Data on M&A announcements and purchase prices are presented annually and quarterly, for the current period and historically, including details on individual deals and trends in prices, methods of payment, multiples, and premiums.
