KBL Merger Corp. (NASDAQ: KBLM), a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”) that previously announced the acquisition of 180 Life Sciences, was featured in a Seeking Alpha news article. The piece discussed a “blockbuster year for SPACs,” indicating that, to date, fiscal year 2020 has seen 127 SPAC IPOs collectively raise over $48.5 billion in proceeds. This represents significantly more than the previous ten years combined. The article covers the process of going public via a SPAC as a cost-effective way to complete a M&A deal in weeks instead of months, as well as an attractive vehicle for biotech companies through providing ready access to capital and much greater public visibility. Seeking Alpha revealed high expectations for the merger of 180 Life Sciences and KBLM before year end, which comes on the heels of successful SPAC mergers of Immatics N.V. (NASDAQ: IMTX) with Arya Sciences; Immunovant Inc. (NASDAQ: IMVT) with Health Sciences Acquisitions Corporation (in 2019); AdaptHealth Holdings (NASDAQ: AHCO) with DFB Healthcare Acquisitions (in 2019); and currently MultiPlan with Churchill Capital Corp III (NYSE: CCXXU). The piece also highlighted DraftKings Inc. (NASDAQ: DKNG) and Skillz (NYSE: FEAC) as large and successful SPACS of the year.
