Post Holdings Forms SPAC In Hopes Of Acquiring A Food Company

February 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Cereal maker Post Holdings is the latest company to launch a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), a way to bring a private company public more quickly and with fewer disclosures than a traditional IPO. Post is trying to raise $400 million for its SPAC, a Post Holdings subsidiary managed by its executive team, that will acquire a company in the consumer products industry. In a press release, the company said its Post Holdings Partnering Corporation “intends to partner with a company in the consumer products industry that complements the experience and expertise of Post's management team and is a business to which Post's management believes it can add value." Food brands expected to go public in the future that Post could target include Chobani, Just Eat, and Impossible Foods.
