ICR Launches SPAC Liquidation Communications Services


Leading SPAC Communications and Advisory Firm Provides SPAC Sponsors with Strategic Communications Solutions to Comply with Stock Exchange and SEC Requirements

NEW YORK – August 24, 2022 – ICR, a leading strategic communications and advisory firm, today announced the launch of its SPAC Liquidation Communications Services offering, providing SPAC Sponsors with the strategic advice and necessary support to properly communicate with investors during the liquidation and de-listing of a SPAC.

“Based on the combination of current market conditions and the very large number of SPACs seeking transactions, we recognize not every SPAC will consummate a merger,” said Phil Denning, Partner, ICR. “Those SPACs that find themselves in this predicament must be aware that in addition to stock exchange notification requirements, there are other important communications details to consider when managing a SPAC liquidation and de-listing process.”

Leveraging its experience as the largest advisor and communications consultant to SPACs, having worked on more than 120 transactions since the start of 2021, ICR is positioned to advise those sponsors that choose to, or are unable to, execute a business combination in the current market environment.

“Whether it is the Sponsor’s only SPAC, or if they have sponsored multiple SPACs, there are reputational considerations to consider when announcing the decision to liquidate,” added Denning. “There are clear disclosure requirements but there are also best practices to consider to make sure the liquidation is properly managed.”
