Accor Planning To Sponsor Special Purpose Acquisition Company To Target Acquisitions In Leisure, Lifestyle And Food Sectors

Europe's biggest hotel group, Accor, has said that it is planning to sponsor a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) to target acquisitions in the leisure, lifestyle and food sectors.

Expecting To Raise Approximately €300 Million

The company said in a statement that it is expecting the SPAC to raise approximately €300 million with a listing on Euronext Paris, and added that its own investment in the SPAC will not be material.

SPAC Information

A SPAC, which is also known as a blank check company or firm, is a shell company that raises money in an initial public offering (IPO) to merge with a privately held firm that then becomes publicly traded as a result.

Benefit From Accor's Network, Scale And Global Presence

Accor said that SPAC acquisition will benefit from the company's network, scale and global presence.

First Quarter Revenue Fall

The above news follows recent news that Accor's revenue fell 48% on a like-for-like basis during the first quarter of 2021 to €361 million.
