Goldman Sachs used the prosperity of SPAC as its background.
In the second half of last year, we wrote an article by David Kostin’s equity strategy team on Goldman Sachs, declaring 2020 as the year of SPAC.
In the months since this report, this trend has only accelerated.
The Kostin team released the latest information on the space and pace of launch of these vehicles on Monday.
Maybe an understatement.
As of February 26, approximately 175 SPAC sponsors made their debut on the public market, raising a total of 56 billion U.S. dollars. In 2020 (a record year for the SPAC IPO), about 223 SPAC sponsors entered the market.
According to data from SPAC Insider, as of Tuesday, there are approximately 204 SPAC IPOs listed. According to Street Insider data, no less than 1
As a quick reminder, SPAC is an acronym for Special Purpose Acquisition Company and is often referred to as a “blank check” company. These are publicly listed entities, and their shares do not represent claims on the business of subordinate companies, but reflect ownership in the capital pool, which will then be used to acquire existing businesses.
As early as January, we regarded SPAC as another micro-bubble. In the past few years, similar bubbles have appeared in the market many times. However, Goldman Sachs data shows that the capital behind these tools represents stronger market dynamics than speculative funds invested in cryptocurrency projects or hot pot stocks in the 2017s.
Goldman Sachs wrote: “SPAC may generate more than $700 billion in acquisitions in the next two years.” “We estimate that SPAC capital of US$103 billion is actively looking for acquisition targets. The total ratio of target enterprise value to related SPAC capital in the merger announcement is 7 times this year, which is an increase from 6 times in 2020 and 3 times in 2010.If the year-to-date ratio remains the same, SPAC will acquire companies worth more than $700 billion [enterprise value]. “
Given the interest of customers and the broader market, we hope Kostin and the team will continue to maintain this theme. The chart below provides us with the easiest way to think about the hidden value of the SPAC universe-just multiply the total SPAC capital seeking to acquire by 7.
Although the multiples of SPAC transactions continue to rise, Goldman Sachs has also found that the value of companies listed through this channel is increasing, and the speed at which sponsors use their funds is also increasing.
Goldman Sachs data shows that so far this year, the average value of a company listed through SPAC is 2.9 billion US dollars, higher than last year’s 1.7 billion US dollars and nearly a decade of 800 million US dollars. Sponsors also found their targets 175 days after the initial public offering (IPO), which is less than half of the time sponsors spend on search in 2020, compared to 487 days on average in the 2010s.
