At this point, PSPC is seriously starting to look for an acquisition target. PSPC generally has two years from the date of the IPO to complete an acquisition. This process is similar to any M&A process. PSPC identifies and conducts due diligence for potential targets. However, since shareholders can buy back shares, sponsors need to closely monitor liquidity to ensure there are enough resources to acquire the target and manage post-close operations. On this date, convertible bonds are often issued during private investments in public equity (PIPE), which are converted into shares at the choice of the private investor, thus diluting the equity of existing shareholders. The selection process concludes with a final agreement between PSPC and an acquisition objective. There is a standard set of contracts and documents entered into as part of the creation of PSPC and the Spac IPO. Some, such as the constitution and the registration fee agreement, have similarities in traditional IPOs of operating companies, while others are unique to PSCS. Units sold to the public typically contain a fraction of a warrant for the purchase of an entire share, while the promoter buys entire warrants.
In recent times, the most common structure is that units sold in the IPO contained a half-alarm, although a third of a warning is more common for larger IPOs. In any case, only entire warrants can be exercised. Offers of the founding warrants and shares that may be issued during the exercise of the public warrants and the founding warrants are not registered at the time of the IPO, but are generally subject to a registration agreement entered into at the time of the IPO which gives the holders of these securities certain rights of application registration and “hucke-pack” under the PSPC transaction. Stock exchange rules do not always require a vote by PSPC shareholders, but the structure of the PSPC transaction (e.g. B if PSPC does not survive or reschedule a merger in another jurisdiction) may require a vote, and if more than 20% of the eligible PSPC shares are issued as part of the PSPC Transaction (to the seller of the target company, for example for PIPE investors or for a combination) require a Stock Exchange Rule Shareholder Vote. This leads to most of PSPC`s operations involving a public vote of PSPC shareholders, which involves filing a proxy statement with the SEC, auditing and commenting by the SEC, sending the proxy statement to PSPC shareholders, and holding a shareholders` meeting. The proxy process can take three to five months or more from the date of signing of a final agreement for the PSPC transaction.
