The average daily volume over the last 5 days is only 2.3mm (115% float) for SPIR, whereas IRNT is 28.3mm (2,200% float), TMC 18.7mm (690% float), and OPAD 29.4mm (860% float). The stock is so illiquid that there’s a possibility of a short squeeze.
Berlin based travel company HomeToGo will receive a cash injection of €250 million after its SPAC merger with Lakestar, although the proceeds from the merger are lower than anticipated due to higher redemptions. Shareholders of Lakestar voted to approve the deal.
