Commonly used acronym for the term special purpose acquisition company. SPACs used to be called "blank-check companies" because they raise money to acquire a company not publicly identified. SPACs have become a different way for private companies to access the public capital markets and become publicly traded. A merger with a SPAC is an alternative to an initial public offering (IPO) or direct listing.
