As another special bonus episode, we spoke with Harry Sloan, who has been CEO or Chairman on eight of the Eagle SPACs, including Diamond Eagle, which combined with DraftKings in 2020. Harry’s most recent SPAC, Screaming Eagle, raised $750 million at its IPO despite a very challenging SPAC market.
Harry gives us his view on the wild SPAC years of 2020 and 2021 and where he thinks the current market is headed for 2022. We also discuss the novel structure of “Spinning Eagle”, his other SPAC currently in registration, and why he thinks it makes sense for SPAC sponsors.
Give it a listen.
