MVIS Announces a Rule Change for SPAC Treatment

Frankfurt (16 February 2021) – MV Index Solutions GmbH (MVIS®) will change a rule for all equity indices. Effective 15 April 2021, the index guide (chapter 5.2) will be adjusted as follows:

• SPACs will be considered under the current IPO/Spin-Off rule as well. Instead of the IPO/spin-off date, the merger/acquisition date is used to determine the required month of trading prior to the review snapshot date.

The amended Index Guide will be available for download at after the March Review.

Kind Regards,
