SEC Gives Better.com a Temporary Breather, But It’s Not All Sunshine and Rainbows Yet!

Subspac - SEC Gives Better.com a Temporary Breather, But It's Not All Sunshine and Rainbows Yet!

TLDR:
– Better.com has managed to avoid enforcement action from the SEC, but this does not guarantee immunity from future actions.
– The company has experienced significant layoffs and financial losses, but is still moving forward with its plans for an initial public offering.

Well, well, well, Better.com managed to dodge a bullet from the SEC. Despite being probed deeper than a turkey on Thanksgiving, the digital mortgage lender didn’t receive the much-dreaded recommendation for enforcement action. But hold your dancing horses, folks. This isn’t exactly an ‘all-clear’ signal as the SEC made it pretty clear that Better.com’s ‘get out of jail free’ card doesn’t imply immunity or a guarantee against future action. So, this might be a breather, but it’s not a sigh of relief.

The company’s journey reminds me of a bumpy roller coaster ride that you can’t wait to get off. Internal conflicts, financial tribulations, and let’s not forget the grand exit from the real estate business. It’s like the company decided to quit playing ‘Monopoly’ halfway after landing on ‘Chance’ one too many times. But the game must go on, and Better.com is stubbornly clinging on to its dream of going public.

Better.com went from a bustling small city of about 10,400 employees to a ghost town with just 950 left. More than 91% of the workforce was let go in a span of 18 months. Wow! That’s a bigger population drop than a horror movie. In the first quarter of 2023, the company reported a substantial net loss of approximately $89.9 million. These numbers tell a tale of their own, and it’s not a fairy tale.

The company sure has some nerve, though. Despite the turmoil, it’s forging ahead with its initial public offering. The decisive vote is scheduled for August 11. Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen, will this be the turning point for Better.com, or just another hiccup in its tumultuous journey?

The company seems to have an unshakeable faith in its mission to revolutionize the mortgage industry. Better.com aims to simplify the home buying process, making it more accessible and affordable. The question is, will they be able to deliver, or are we all just holding our breath for a big, mortgage-sized bubble to burst?

So, as we stay tuned for the vote results and subsequent actions, remember folks, it isn’t over until it’s over. This is not the end of Better.com’s story…it’s just the end of another chapter. Who knows? Maybe they’ll yet turn things around and become the ‘better’ company they aspire to be. For now, we can only watch and wait. The road to IPO is a rocky one, and Better.com seems to be driving without a spare tire.

Apple’s iGlass: A Head-Turning Step into the Future or Just Another Gimmick in the Apple Cart?

Subspac - Apple's iGlass: A Head-Turning Step into the Future or Just Another Gimmick in the Apple Cart?

TLDR:
– Apple unveiled the iGlass, an augmented reality headset promising to revolutionize digital interactions.
– Mustang Energy granted an extension to acquire Cykel, an AI software developer, for $24.1 million, in a move towards staying relevant in the tech industry.

Ladies and gentlemen, it appears our dear old friend, Apple, has done it again. On a bright and shiny Monday, when the rest of us were still trying to figure out how to operate our coffee machines, Apple decided to unveil its latest creation, the iGlass, to a room full of people who probably already knew about it. Let me tell you, this isn’t your grandmother’s reading glasses. The iGlass is a state-of-the-art augmented reality headset that promises to change the way we interact with the digital world, because apparently, scrolling on our smartphones wasn’t enough.

The iGlass appears to be a shiny plastic hat trick of superior design, cutting-edge technology, and a seamless integration with Apple’s ecosystem. In simpler terms, it’s a set of glasses that overlays digital information onto the real world, making your morning commute look like a sci-fi movie. With this new gadget, you can play a video game while waiting for your coffee or turn your dull office meetings into a dragon-slaying adventure. It’s all fun and games until someone tries to swat a digital fly on the subway.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the iGlass isn’t just for fun. Apple’s latest invention offers applications far beyond playing augmented reality games on your toilet. It’s designed to revolutionize everything from healthcare to education. Imagine learning about the Roman Empire with a virtual Caesar giving the lecture, or diagnosing a patient while their medical history floats in front of your eyes. This gizmo is set to change the way we work, learn, and interact with the world around us, assuming of course, we can afford it.

In other news, UK’s blank-check company, Mustang Energy, is making moves of its own. It has been granted an extension to acquire Cykel, an artificial intelligence software developer, for a cool $24.1 million. Now, I’m no business expert, but it seems like buying a company that develops artificial intelligence might just be a good idea in a world where we’re putting computers on our faces. It’s certainly one way to ensure you stay relevant when the robots eventually take over.

So there you have it, folks. While the rest of us were still waking up from our weekend slumber, Apple and Mustang Energy were busy shaping the future. One with more augmented reality headsets and artificial intelligence than you can shake a stick at. So grab your iGlasses and your AI software, because the future of technology waits for no one, and apparently, neither does Monday morning.

From Wish to Whimper: How a $18 Billion Online Retail Powerhouse Becomes a $173 Million Tax Haven Hopeful

Subspac - From Wish to Whimper: How a $18 Billion Online Retail Powerhouse Becomes a $173 Million Tax Haven Hopeful

TLDR:
– ContextLogic, formerly known as Wish, plans to use its $2.7 billion in net operating losses as a tax offset lure for a merger partner.
– The company is seeking a deal partner, potentially through a Special Purpose Acquisition Company, to fully utilize the tax losses and potentially revive its business.

In a move that would be laughable if it weren’t so brilliantly desperate, ContextLogic, the company formerly known as Wish, has devised a survival plan post their unceremonious sell-off to Qoo10 for a less-than-stellar $173 million. Instead of sulking, they’re turning their lemons into a potentially lucrative lemonade, aiming to utilize their $2.7 billion in cumulative net operating losses as a sort of tax offset lure for a merger partner. It’s a strategy so unconventional that it might just work – or not.

The tale of Wish is a classic one. It entered the market with a bang during the pandemic IPO frenzy, boasting a business model as an online dollar store. However, much like a dollar store balloon, it blew up impressively to an $18 billion market cap in early 2021, only to deflate just as rapidly when the business model failed to stick. Now, the deflated balloon is trying to reinflate itself with a new strategy.

ContextLogic’s plan is to become a shell company, using its $2.7 billion of losses to offset tax liability. With the US corporate tax rate at 21%, these losses potentially offer a future tax shield valued at nearly $600 million. Now they just need to find a partner willing to dance to their unusual tune. But there’s a catch – the US tax authority, like a strict chaperone at a school dance, imposes limitations on using tax losses to deter pure arbitrage transactions. This means current shareholders of Wish must retain economic control of the combined company to fully use this $2.7 billion balance.

ContextLogic is now in the market for a deal partner. It’s akin to a bachelor on a dating show, trying to find the perfect match among suitors who might not be thrilled by the unconventional proposal. They could go down the route of a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (Spac), teaming up with a private equity firm to get the capital infusion needed to buy a bigger business. This isn’t entirely unprecedented. Failed regional bank Washington Mutual’s $6 billion worth of losses were placed in a publicly traded company that eventually merged with Nationstar Mortgage.

The future of ContextLogic remains as uncertain as the quality of products once sold by Wish. Yet, the company’s determination to use its losses as a strategic advantage presents an intriguing twist in this corporate drama. For the shareholders, it’s a gamble. They can sell their shares at the current price of around $6.50, or hold onto them, hoping for a windfall if ContextLogic’s strategy pays off. It’s hard to predict whether this will end as a tragically comedic tale of a fallen giant, or an inspiring story of a company rising like a phoenix from its own ashes. One thing is certain – it’s going to be an interesting ride.

“Trump Media Merger Makes Digital World Stock Soar; SEC Approves and Shareholders Poised to Pop the Champagne”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– SEC approval boosts Digital World Acquisition’s stock by 29% and clears the path for merger with Trump Media.
– Investor enthusiasm for Trump’s involvement in the company drives high call volume and stock price jumps for other companies in Trump’s orbit.

Well folks, there’s nothing like a little SEC approval to give a boost to a company’s stock price. Just ask Digital World Acquisition, the blank-check firm with an appetite for Trump’s media company. After their proposed business combination with Trump Media & Technology Group got the thumbs-up from the regulators, the company’s shares skyrocketed like a firework on the Fourth of July, marking a 29% jump on Thursday alone. It’s like they’ve been shot out of a cannon, with the explosion echoing all the way back to January 22, the last time they had such a stellar intraday gain.

This SEC approval finally puts an end to the two-year long game of regulatory ping-pong that had delayed the merger with Trump Media, the proud parents of social media platform Truth Social. Apparently, all this time they’d been waiting for the SEC’s green light, and now that it’s on, the path to merger looks as clear as a gin and tonic. But don’t uncork the champagne just yet – there’s still a shareholder vote to get through. Digital World is expected to announce the date for this crucial event in the next couple of days.

Now, here’s a little something to tickle your funny bone – the soaring stock prices have been somewhat fueled by Trump’s campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. It seems investors are quite taken with the idea of hitching their wagons to Trump’s star. It’s certainly a gamble, but then again, who doesn’t enjoy a high stakes game every once in a while?

The investor enthusiasm is most evident in the high call volume traded in Digital World’s stock. Investors seem to have a particular fondness for out-of-the-money contracts looking for a little extra upside. The proof’s in the pudding – a call option set to expire on Friday, requiring just a 12% rally to turn a profit, has been the belle of the ball.

This surge in enthusiasm hasn’t been contained to just Digital World. Other companies in Trump’s orbit, including video platform Rumble Inc. and software company Phunware Inc., have also seen their stock prices jump. It’s like Trump has the Midas touch – everything he’s involved with turns to gold. Or at least, that seems to be the perception in the market.

And finally, in a move that surprises absolutely no one, Digital World has proposed a couple of former Trump administration officials, Robert Lighthizer and Linda McMahon, for board positions. It’s like a high school reunion, just with more politics and less punch.

So, there you have it, folks. The SEC’s approval has sent Digital World Acquisition’s stock prices on a joyride. It’s a brave new world for the company, with all the regulatory hurdles cleared and the merger with Trump Media & Technology Group almost in the bag. But whether this ride ends with a pot of gold or a crash landing, only time will tell.

SEC “De-SPACs” the Rulebook: Unveils Final IPO and Business Combination Regulations for Special Purpose Acquisition Companies

Subspac - SEC

TLDR:
– The SEC has implemented new rules for IPOs and business combinations of SPACs, including more disclosure requirements and guidance on liability exposures.
– Underwriters in a SPAC IPO are not held liable for subsequent business combinations, but anyone involved in a SPAC’s business combination may still be hit with the underwriter tag and associated liability. The SEC did not adopt a safe harbor for SPACs under the Investment Company Act, potentially impacting the registration status of SPACs.

The SEC, in all its wisdom, has finally decided to lay down the law on IPOs and business combinations of SPACs. And let me tell you folks, their final rules document is a real page-turner – all 581 pages of it. The main takeaway? More disclosure requirements, guidance on liability exposures and a few curveballs to keep us on our toes.

One of the proposed shockers was that underwriters in a SPAC IPO could be held liable for subsequent business combinations. But the SEC, perhaps after a few sleepless nights, decided not to establish this liability. A sigh of relief, right? Not exactly. They’ve decided that even if they didn’t buy and resell the securities, anyone involved in a SPAC’s business combination may still be hit with the underwriter tag and the associated liability. It’s as clear as mud, but I wager it’ll have financial advisors reassessing their risk tolerance quicker than you can say ‘regulatory compliance.’

Then there’s the issue of SPACs in relation to the Investment Company Act. The SEC, playing hardball, decided not to adopt a safe harbor for SPACs. This means that whether a SPAC should be registered as an investment company depends on the nitty-gritty of each case. The SEC did throw us a bone, listing activities that would heavily imply a SPAC should be registered as an investment company. The lack of safe harbor hasn’t rocked the SPAC market boat yet, but it’s a space worth watching.

Target companies in a SPAC’s business combination now get to wear the issuer hat and have to sign any Securities Act registration statement filed in connection with the business combination. What’s that mean? More liability, more paperwork, more headaches. It also means target companies have to dance to the tune of the Exchange Act’s periodic reporting requirements until they call time on them.

The final rules also put a spotlight on the treatment of projections and the availability of the PSLRA safe harbor for SPACs. In simple terms, they’ve made the PSLRA safe harbor a no-go zone for SPACs by adding new definitions of “blank check company”. Additionally, there’s a new requirement for enhanced disclosure for projections in SPAC business combinations. Essentially, if you’re a target company or a financial advisor, expect to be doing a lot more homework.

The SEC, in a last-minute plot twist, scrapped the proposed requirement for SPACs to state their opinion on whether their business combination is fair or unfair to unaffiliated security holders. Instead, SPACs must now disclose determinations made by their board of directors on the advisability and best interests of the business combination. This change could be a boon for SPAC boards, and we could see more offshore SPACs popping up as a consequence.

Finally, the SEC has decided that smaller reporting company (SRC) status needs to be re-determined post-SPAC business combination. SRCs are eligible for scaled-down disclosure requirements, but now they’ll have to re-evaluate their status before making their first SEC filing following a business combination. It’s yet another hoop to jump through, but hey, that’s business in the big leagues.

“Wave Goodbye to Fossil Fuels: Sable Offshore Surfs Into the Future of Clean Energy”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– Sable Offshore has created a system of buoys that harness the perpetual energy of ocean waves to generate electricity, capable of producing 1 megawatt each.
– The company aims to redefine our relationship with nature, providing a renewable power source while minimizing the disruption to ecosystems caused by traditional energy sources.

Well folks, Sable Offshore appears to be the latest bunch of dreamers who have decided to take on the Goliath that is fossil fuels. They’ve come up with a shiny new toy they’re calling the “Sable Offshore System”. Don’t you just love it when people name things after themselves? It’s like they’re trying to say, “Hey, look at us, we’re important.”

Now, this contraption is no ordinary piece of green tech. Oh no. It’s a bunch of futuristic-looking buoys that they’ve decided to drop in the middle of the sea. The plan? To tap into the perpetual dance of the ocean waves to generate electricity. It’s like a never-ending conga line of power, always bobbing, always generating.

And here’s the kicker: this isn’t some fair-weather friend that’ll leave you high and dry when the sun stops shining or the wind stops blowing. This bad boy will keep going round the clock, no matter the weather. So, while your solar panels are having a siesta at night, these little buoys will be partying on, harvesting the wave energy.

What’s more, these machines are capable of generating 1 megawatt of electricity each. Picture this: an army of these buoys, thousands strong, all feeding power into the grid. That’s gigawatts of power, enough to light up entire cities. It’s like having a pet Godzilla, if Godzilla was into renewable energy and not, you know, destroying things.

But wait, there’s more! Because why stop at just generating clean energy? Sable Offshore claims that their system will also be kinder to our marine buddies. No more disrupting ecosystems with nasty oil spills or monstrous wind turbines. Just a bunch of friendly buoys bobbing about, minding their own business and saving the planet.

Sable Offshore is looking to redefine our relationship with Mother Nature, turning her ocean waves into a renewable power source and doing away with the dirty business of burning fossil fuels. And if that’s not a noble pursuit, I don’t know what is.

As we teeter on the edge of a cleaner, greener future, it’s companies like Sable Offshore that are pushing us forward, challenging the old ways and imagining a brighter tomorrow. Indeed, innovation and human ingenuity are our greatest assets in the face of climate change. So, folks, let’s strap in and enjoy this wild ride towards a better world. Buckle up, it’s going to be one hell of a journey!

“Borealis Foods Stirs the Pot: Serving Up Disruption with a Side of Sustainability”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– Borealis Foods is revolutionizing the food industry with their plant-based protein burger and other innovative products.
– They are committed to sustainability, reducing waste, and conserving resources while creating delicious and healthy food options.

Well, folks, it looks like Borealis Foods has decided to take a swing at food industry norms with the subtlety of a wrecking ball. If you thought you knew what food was, CEO Jane Johnson and her merry band of culinary rebels are here to remind you that you don’t know beans about beans — or burgers, for that matter.

The standout star in this revolutionary lineup is their plant-based protein burger. And before you start moaning, “Not another veggie burger,” let me tell you, this isn’t your grandma’s garden patty. This sucker could fool a carnivore in broad daylight. It’s made from a super-secret blend of plant-based proteins that probably involve some sort of molecular wizardry. Vegetarians, vegans, and those fence-sitting flexitarians are reportedly forming cult-like followings. I guess nothing unites people like a good burger impersonator.

Borealis Foods didn’t just stop at veggie burgers. Oh no, they’ve gone and disrupted snacks too. They’ve got barbecue-flavored protein chips and plant-based ice cream. I guess if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em and then beat ’em at their own game. And it’s not just about taste. They’re packing these edibles with more protein, less fat, and reduced sugar. Truly, a commendable effort to make yummy food that doesn’t make your arteries whimper in fear.

But wait, there’s more. Borealis Foods is also giving Mother Earth a helping hand by reducing waste and conserving resources. They’re big fans of renewable energy and they’ve got innovative packaging that probably dissolves into pixie dust or something. They’re the champions of the sustainable food movement and one can only imagine what they’ve got planned next. Turning food waste into rocket fuel, maybe?

What’s their secret, you ask? They’ve got a sixth sense for what consumers want — and what they’re going to want. It’s almost like they can see into the future. With consumer trends shifting faster than a cheetah on roller-skates, that’s an invaluable skill. And apparently, people want super tasty, super healthy, super earth-friendly food.

So, what does the future look like for Borealis Foods? More of the same, apparently. They’re not slowing down, not by a long shot. They’re planning to expand their product line and enter new markets. Presumably, the universe is next.

In conclusion, Borealis Foods is on a mission to redefine our notions of taste, health, and sustainability with their revolutionary product line. They’ve managed to capture the hearts and taste buds of consumers worldwide. As they continue to disrupt the industry, one thing is clear — Borealis Foods is as much a force for change as it is a food company. And if their past products are any indication, we’re in for an exciting ride. Buckle up, folks!

“SEC Plays Spoiler for SPAC Fairytales: No More Pies in the Sky, Folks!”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– SEC is tightening the rules on SPACs, potentially ending the era of grandiose claims and high-flying projections by companies.
– The removal of the safe harbor provision may reshape the SPAC market, discouraging overly optimistic forecasts and increasing disclosure requirements.

Well, well, well. It appears that the party might be over for the special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), those blank-check vehicles that popped up like mushrooms in a damp cellar during the pandemic. You see, startups couldn’t resist the opportunity to make grandiose claims about their prospects without much fear of legal backlash. However, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is now sharpening its pencils and tightening the rules on SPACs. This may put an end to the sweet dreams and high-flying projections that companies have been freely tossing around like confetti at a New Year’s Eve party.

Never one to shy away from a good example, let’s take a gander at hydrogen-fueled vehicle maker, Hyzon Motors Inc. This ambitious company initially promised to produce over 3,000 vehicles by 2023. However, they had to scale down their ambitions, a lot. Eventually, they admitted that they might only churn out a paltry 20 vehicles. That’s quite a drop, isn’t it? It’s as if they jumped off a cliff and realized mid-air that they forgot their parachute.

And then there’s MSP Recovery Inc, trading as LifeWallet, a health-litigation firm with an equally optimistic vision. They had projected a net income of a whopping $630 million for 2023. Unfortunately, their bank balance tells a different story. They ended up losing over $600 million in just nine months, leading up to September. It seems their fancy forecasts were as accurate as a horoscope in a tabloid newspaper.

Now, here comes the SEC, like a stern school principal, ready to enforce stricter rules and increased liability for these SPACs. They aim to protect investors, although that might have been helpful before companies like Nikola Corp, which merged with a SPAC, started warning about their weak balance sheets and struggles to meet production expectations.

But don’t get it twisted, not all SPAC deals have been disastrous. Some have been quite successful, like DraftKings Inc, which has seen its shares nearly quadruple. However, the looming increase in disclosure requirements and the potential for increased liability might dampen the enthusiasm for SPACs, which have seen a notable decline in the number of companies going public through this method.

Pushing up the glasses on its nose, the SEC’s decision to remove the safe harbor provision for SPACs may discourage companies from making overly optimistic forecasts that they cannot reasonably support. This could reshape the landscape of the SPAC market, much like a bulldozer through a sand castle. But hey, at least there won’t be any more overly ambitious or downright unusual forecasts, like that of TMC, the metals company, which provided estimates for 2046, a roughly 25-year lookahead. Seriously, who does that?

So, as we step into this brave new world of increased disclosure and accountability, will the SPAC market adapt or will it wither on the vine? Only time will tell. In the meantime, let’s sit back and enjoy the show. Popcorn, anyone?

BitFuFu’s SPAC-y Step: Just Another Day in Crypto’s March to Mainstream Stardom

Subspac - BitFuFu's SPAC-y Step: Just Another Day in Crypto's March to Mainstream Stardom

TLDR:
– BitFuFu, a Bitcoin mining company, plans to go public through an IPO via a SPAC merger, signaling the growing integration of cryptocurrencies and Wall Street.
– The success of Coinbase’s stock value increase in 2023 suggests a positive outlook for BitFuFu and other crypto firms eyeing the public market, reflecting the increasing acceptance and demand for crypto companies.

Bitcoin mining company BitFuFu is planning to throw its hat into the Wall Street ring, aiming for an IPO via a SPAC merger. This is just another sign that the world of cryptocurrencies and Wall Street are getting cozier than a couple on a winter’s night. In the first half of 2023, this crypto-boom child raked in a staggering $134 million from cloud and proprietary mining. It’s like a gold rush, but with less dirt and more zeroes and ones.

BitFuFu’s bold move is just another brick in the wall of mainstream adoption of crypto. The world of financial services, once as welcoming to crypto as a cat to a bath, is now embracing Bitcoin and its kin like long-lost family. The crypto dark horse has trotted into the limelight, and the eager audience seems to include regulators worldwide, who are working to ensure the crypto market doesn’t turn into a wild west shootout.

The Bitcoin Network Hash Rate, a barometer of Bitcoin’s processing power, has skyrocketed to an all-time high, much like my anxiety levels at a family reunion. It’s a testament to Bitcoin’s resilience and its increasing popularity. The Bitcoin network is gearing up for the halving event, a much-anticipated crypto version of a half-time show.

BitFuFu’s SPAC merger and subsequent IPO are not just a move but a statement. It’s a loud and clear declaration that crypto companies are not just some passing fancy or a casual fling; they’re here for the long haul. This just might be the opening act of a much larger performance, with more crypto companies lining up to make their public debut.

In 2023, Coinbase, another crypto bigwig, saw its stock value soar by over 400%. It’s like a financial Cinderella story, but instead of a prince with a glass slipper, you have investors with a fat wallet. The success of Coinbase paints an encouraging picture for BitFuFu and other crypto firms eyeing the public market.

To sum up, BitFuFu’s decision to go public is just another plot twist in the thrilling saga of cryptocurrencies. It represents the increasing acceptance and demand for crypto companies, and could very well set the stage for more such firms to step into the limelight. As the world of finance continues to evolve and adapt, it seems crypto companies are destined to be part of the cast. Let’s just hope this play doesn’t end in a tragedy.
