About the Event

Panel Discussions:

The SPAC Boom and Meltdown: Lessons for investors, Hosted by Pomerantz LLP

The sole purpose of a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (“SPAC”) is to effect a merger with a private business to enable it to go public. SPACs’ predecessors were the poorly regulated “blank check” companies of the 1980s, which were plagued by penny-stock fraud. SPACs evade the heightened disclosure regime of IPOs, making them a magnet for fraud. Recent research shows that 49% of quarterly financial filings by companies that came to market via a SPAC since 2020 contained an admission of ineffective internal controls. This panel will address the allure of SPACs, their risks, and the current securities litigations and SEC actions that are working to vindicate damaged investors and protect them going forward.

Board oversight of supply chain sustainability

Most companies are not stand-alone enterprises; rather they are placed in a broader value chain, with both upstream and downstream partners. Each company depends on its supply chains to support the business model. Building strong, long-term, and sustainable relationships can help make these supply chains resilient. This panel discussion looks at the role boards play in the oversight of supply chain sustainability, geopolitical developments, the latest regulation and international norms on this topic.
