Special purpose acquisition companies have gone through multiple cycles and structural changes over time, with the latest macro trend showing a big uptick in activity. MandA opportunities are being sought more assertively by SPAC management teams and private companies are increasingly looking at SPACs as a viable option to go public. In fact, 2018 had the most SPACs going public in more than 10 years.
