    The use of Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) to raise capital through Initial Public Offering (IPO) is significantly becoming popular today because of its efficiency and cost-saving benefits. However, consequent to its rapid growth are stricter legal and regulatory probes from the SEC as well as other risk issues including negotiation time constraints and conflicts of interest that could create several threats of litigation.
