Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs)—also known as blank check companies—raised more than $76.2 billion in 2020 and that momentum has carried into 2021. But the process isn’t as easy as it sounds and has become more competitive and scrutinized. The gaming industry has become involved with marquee transactions across sectors and geographies and several SPACs still looking for the right acquisitions.

Join our National and Global Gaming Leaders Rick Arpin, Will Hawkley and Russell Mifsud as well as professionals from KPMG, Credit Suisse Securities, and Skadden as we examine the accounting, legal, governance, and financial challenges and opportunities involved with SPAC transactions, and discuss trends relevant to SPACs in the gaming industry.
