SPAC Rules: Compliance Date Set for July 1st

Here’s something that Liz blogged earlier this week on

The SEC’s final rules on SPACs (and de-SPACs) – which were adopted almost exactly a month ago – have been published in the Federal Register. That means that the compliance date for most of the rules is July 1st of this year, and the compliance date for iXBRL tagging is June 30, 2025. The final rules will require additional disclosures in SPAC IPOs and de-SPAC transactions and heighten liability risks for those involved.

Of course, the rule also included guidance on “investment company” status, which is already in play. As I blogged last month, that aspect of the release – and the part about projections – is something that all companies should care about.
