Other potential launches: Chinese investment bank AMTD International (AMTDI.RC), Chinese global sports group Wanda Sports (WSG), Chinese e-sports streaming firm DouYu (DOYU), large biotech Genmab (GMAB), and Permian basin E&P Riley Exploration Permian (REPX).
For this week's deals, in both cases, the CEO previously completed a SPAC earlier this year. Led by Stephen Vogel, cannabis-focused Tuscan Holdings II (THCAU) plans to raise $125 million and target a smaller business than previous SPAC Tuscan Holdings (THCBU), which raised $240 million and is still looking for a business to acquire. Led by Jonathan Ledecky, Pivotal Investment Corp II (PIC.U) is raising $200 million; his previous SPAC, Pivotal Acquisition (PVT.U), recently announced that it would acquire online legal resource KLDiscovery.
