In recent months, there have been a number of mortgage originators and servicers that have joined the ranks of SEC reporting companies. Some have gone public relying on a traditional IPO, while others have taken a different and increasingly popular alternative path to public company status: merging with a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC. There are also a number of entities considering new REIT financings in the institutional private placement market and the public market.

Join MBA and legal experts for a look at the momentum created by these transactions and market conditions in the mortgage sector that may pave the way for additional IPOs or SPAC mergers. Regardless of whether your organization is considering such a transaction in the near term, the valuations and investor reactions may also provide valuable information for companies that choose to remain private or consider M&A exits.
