Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) quickly emerged as a hot trend of 2020, but they are also taking heat under new SEC scrutiny and increasingly complex accounting requirements.
SPACs are not a new concept, but have boomed recently as they simplify and accelerate the process of going public. But as of late, there have been hurdles to overcome for SPACs, both on the operational and regulatory fronts.
We can assist with a number of specialized services throughout every stage of the SPAC lifecycle. The SEC recently issued guidance that will have dramatic accounting implications for SPACs, including changing the classification of warrants from equity on the balance sheet to a liability. UHY is actively assisting companies in complying with the new SEC guidance.
