SEC Publishes NYSE Proposal on Listing Standards for SPACs

The SEC published the NYSE proposal to amend the Exchange’s Listed Company Manual (the “Manual”) to adopt listing standards for special purpose companies formed for the purpose of raising capital in an initial public offering and entering into an undetermined business combination. The filing also proposes the adoption of requirements that (i) any equity security listing on the Exchange must have a closing price or, if listing in connection with an initial public offering (“IPO”), an IPO price per share of at least $4 at the time of initial listing and (ii) convertible debt issuances listed on the Exchange must have an aggregate market value or principal amount of no less than $10,000,000.  New York Stock Exchange LLC; Notice of Filing of Proposed Rule Change to Adopt New Initial and Continued Listing Standards to List Special Purpose Acquisition Companies.
