      @Ford H This dude gets it

    • Clément C says:

      @Ford H I worked on some SPACs when I was working for an investment bank… the sponsors of SPACs legit makes x10-20 of their investment for no work lol.. but yeah that’s also risky cause if the sponsor doesn’t find a target (unlikely here) he looses it all

  • Mattias Persson says:

    Quite well this year, this bish in white is doing the most naive statement ive ever heard. Hahahah

  • Palden says:

    whats the difference between a SPAC and a holding company?

  • KJ Trades says:

    Already put thousands into it

  • Arib Rezwan says:

    These videos won’t get that much views. And people complaining the rich are mean and cruel. Lol

    • Brad Swarm says:

      Many are, Bill Ackman is not… it’s almost as if wealth exacerbated your actual personality

    • Kobe Dylan says:

      You mean to tell me people spend years binge watching Netflix and Kim Kardashian instead of focusing on finances only to end up broke? 😂 people will never take accountability for their shortcomings. 🤦‍♂️

  • Radoslaw Pindiur says:

    Number of people per square foot approaching 7 or something like that 🤣 imagine that! You’d need vertical cubicles

    • anvit shetty says:

      Even I thought about it for a second, could he be referring to the Manhattan commercial buildings which have 30 or more floors ?

  • Angel Sanchez says:

    Thank you for the video Bill Ackman!

  • Kevin Clare says:

    Ackman is a lizard. Ackman: Hell is coming

  • ali hussain says:

    5:16 Bill said the SPAC will acquire 15-20% of the target company, but I thought the target’s company enterprise value should constitute at least 80% of the SPAC’s net assets. So is the whole $4 billion that is being raised only to acquire a minority interest?

    • Jared Carpenter says:

      Yeah. Take DEAC for example which was a SPAC that reverse merged to become DraftKings under DKNG. DEAC IPO’d at $400 million which was used to acquire a minority share of DKNG and enable DKNG to go public via a much quicker route than a traditional IPO

    • ali hussain says:

      @Jared Carpenter Thanks for the explanation, I wrongly assumed since now that SPACS mostly acquire a controlling interest rather than a minortiy one.

    • Mr Phillips says:

      Yeah, boring. Lets fucking take a little risk.

    • Clément C says:

      Most investors also choose to take their money out once the merger is announced so usually not a lot of monies stay in the vehicle..

  • alexander leo says:

    Why doesn’t the spac reveal who the company is there acquiring?

    • alexander leo says:

      Lemarz so how do I know the spac I’m investing in is any good?

    • Adrian Lam says:

      alexander leo You don’t. You look at the fee structure (minimal management), who’s managing it (Bill Ackman), and you make a bet. I personally think this kind of SPAC is a new trend, a more effective way of raising money, so Ackman will have a lot of incentive to show that it works.

    • alexander leo says:

      Adrian Lam it’s like a mystery box lool

    • anvit shetty says:

      If you buy the SPAC stock right now , you are basically betting on Ackman and his team. Ideally you would want to wait for some time to know about the company they are acquiring. Many investors fear that this spac is going to take off, when he makes the reverse merger announcement ,so they think they are getting ahead of the curve by buying it right away.

    • alexander leo says:

      anvit shetty does the spac remain a stock one the company ipos? Or your shares just get converted into shares for the company

  • WhatIfGod/ImagineInfinity says:

    Production value at Yahoo is amateurish at best!

    • Mr Phillips says:

      Reminds me of CCTV

  • chicken says:

    Ticker is psth/u

  • AirForceA7x says:

    How does one invest in this? I don’t see symbol on brokerage app

  • MasterShredder says:

    He’s playing pokerstars in the background.

  • Mr Phillips says:

    Pretty boring dude for a liberal. He hides his crazy well.

  • TheRusschannel says:

    OR you could line yourself up to be SCREWED an marry WeWork or the such LOL…. Bill has been so WRONG too many times, I would not give him a $1 of mine…
