For more information about these exemptions, read our brochure, Small Business & the SEC. In addition, a blank check company registering for a securities offering may be subject to additional requirements for the protection of investors, including depositing most of the raised funds in an escrow account until an acquisition is agreed to and requiring shareholder approval of any identified acquisition. A type of blank check company is a “special purpose acquisition company,” or SPAC for short.
