Alberton Acquisition Corporation Amends IPO Terms


Alberton Acquisition Corporation Amends IPO Terms

Oct 23, 2018 INTEL by Kristi Marvin

Alberton Acquisition Corporation, re-filed their prospectus this morning and added a warrant to its unit.  Previously, Alberton’s unit structure consisted of just one ordinary share and one right to receive 1/10 of one share. However, it would appear that was not received well and hence, the change.  Furthermore, the warrant trigger for management to be able to call back the warrants is $16.00, not the usual $18.00, which further sweetens the terms.

The rest of Alberton’s terms remain the same, including the two 3-month time extensions in addition to their 12 months to find an acquisition.  As a reminder, if Alberton runs out of time and needs to extend, they must contribute $1 million into trust at each 3-month extension.

Given that Alberton re-filed this morning, pricing will most likely be pushed back.  However, as we’ve seen with both Churchill and ChaSerg, which were able to re-file and price the same day, the SEC has gotten quite comfortable with SPACs, so a quick turn-around is not out of the question.

Revised summary of terms below.
