Guide to D&O Insurance for SPAC IPOs (and How to Save Money on Your D&O Insurance Premium)

Woodruff Sawyer

SPACs (special purpose acquisition companies) had a volatile year in 2021, raising more funds in the public market and doing more business combinations than ever before. After an extremely busy first quarter the pace of SPAC IPOs and SPAC business combinations (aka de-SPACs) slowed down largely as a result of an overheated market and increased attention from the regulators. The pace of new issuances and combinations picked back up towards the end of the year and will likely continue to be robust in 2022. Attention from regulators like the SEC and FINRA will also likely continue and we anticipate a number of new statements from the regulators as well as SPAC-related rule changes in 2022. As they go through their IPO and the subsequent M&A process, SPACs face many regulatory, legal, and business hurdles, including obtaining the appropriate amount and type of insurance for each stage of their life cycle. However, with some smart preparation and the expertise of the right advisors, insurance can go from being a necessary burden to a strategic asset.
