SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies) were one of the hottest market trends in 2020 and 2021, but the contraction of the market for SPACs and the recent market challenges dampened investor enthusiasm for these listings. However, many SPACs launched during the boom are still looking for targets.
