Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July



DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince


Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Here it is, the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin’ to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be

Ahhh, the sage wisdom of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.  It’s been an intense month for SPACs and post-holiday break it promises to get even more insane.  We are looking at NINE SPACS on file that are all expected to price in July, potentially beating the current record of seven SPACs priced in one month.  Plus, we may even have some new filings today or Friday, that could add to the total and no less than FIVE shareholder votes coming up – three to extend (BRAC, GPAQ and WRLS) and two to complete (TBRG and CIC).

However, since today and Friday are sure to be relatively slow, below are some interesting links to help pass the time. It’s shaping up to be one helluva month, so I hope everyone gets a chance to relax and enjoy the holiday.

Note: It’s July 4th tomorrow and unless something crazy gets filed or there’s a major news announcement on Friday, we won’t be back until Monday. 

Have a great Fourth of July, everyone!
