除了比特币,资本市场这类公司火了

今日主播孙昌岳说:


 

要说现在资本市场什么最火,除了比特币,或许就是特殊目的收购公司(SPAC)了。


火到什么程度?去年一共有248家特殊目的收购公司上市,融资超800亿美元,占到了全年美股IPO的半壁江山。2021年才两个月,就已经有超过180家这类公司上市。


那么它是干什么的?通俗来讲,是“借壳上市”。这类公司没有实质业务,仅是用现金注册一个壳公司上市,再通过兼并收购的方式帮助实业公司曲线上市,被当作美国资本市场的特殊上市工具。通过这一方式实现上市的时间,能比走传统IPO程序缩短半年以上。


不过,这种操作存有不小风险,它绕过了传统IPO过程中必要的信息披露和资本市场的多重审视,让画大饼、讲故事套现变得更加容易。巴菲特的“黄金搭档查理·芒格预计,这种上市热潮会以一种糟糕的方式结束,但他不知道结局什么时候到来。
