APAC M&A Insights: De-SPAC considerations in Southeast Asia
19 July 2021
There is increased SPAC activity in the Asia Pacific region, with most of the recent activity focused on business combinations or ‘de-SPAC’ transactions.
A growing number of SPACs are targeting companies in Indonesia and Vietnam, and in this 10-minute podcast we highlight the considerations and challenges for de-SPACs in these markets, from tax implications, to legal structures to foreign ownership limits. The speakers provide their thoughts on how companies can work within these constraints to ensure an attractive capital structure.
Singapore-based US capital markets partner Felipe Duque discusses these developments with Tina LeDinh, Vietnam-based M&A and capital markets partner and Sugianto Osman, a Jakarta-based partner who has advised on some the market-leading tech transactions in Indonesia.
