Methodology: In addition to the traditional methodology used whereby any bookrunner or lead manager gets full credit for IPO size to calculate deal volume, starting last quarter we added two new columns to the rankings - volume by number of units sold and volume sold % market shares (highlighted in green).

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through SPACLand
Not a creature was stirring, not even Chardan;

In hopes that a deal soon would be there;

The attorneys were nestled all snug in their chairs;

And my laptop in its sleeve, and I in my SPACInsider cap,
Had just settled my brain for a long winter’s nap,

When out on sixth avenue, there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter. ...READ MORE
