Hi Joey,
Would you happen to know the difference between these Gores tickers, GHIV and GHIVU please? Wondered if one is the warrant and the other a common stock.

Kind regards,

Hi @TaurusDuke - the ‘U’ denotes an instrument that is a Unit, whereas the cleaner ‘GHIV’ (ie. without the U) is the common stock / shares.

I’ve linked another post from further up this thread, there’s a URL in it that will help with understanding further;

Thanks so much. I really appreciate it

Haven’t seen that anywhere. CCXX is tomorrow I think.

Now I don’t mean to be a…

…but the following SPACs were added in the massive 2.5k dump yesterday, however I haven’t seen any evidence that they are now common stock. That doesn’t mean to say I haven’t missed it or there’s a timing crossover; all were due round about now.

NDAQ:GRSV (Gores Holdings V Inc)
NDAQ:FIII (Forum Merger III Corp.)
NYSE:RBAC (RedBall Acquisition)
NYSE:PTK (PTK Acquisition)
NDAQ:AACQ (Artius Acquisition)
NYSE:PRPB (CC Neuberger Principal Holdings II)

@David @Martin @PeterA, in particular GSRV and AACQ do not show up on IB for me. The rest show up but I have yet to see the relevant SEC filing, but I presume in these cases IB are just ahead of it.

Are you guys comfortable that all the SPACs added in yesterday’s bulk exercise are all common shares and none are still solely units?

Happy if you are, just wanted to double check. Don’t know what it would mean for you from a regulatory angle…


@Joey_Fantana Can confirm that all of these SPACs are on IB & are common stock. Not going to make that mistake twice. :slight_smile:


Am I correct that we somehow missed to add NYSE: LEAP to T212?

I’ve been checking daily and IB still says they are units, not common stock.

But IB has been playing up the last couple of days and all my seraches return no results, even when they’ve worked in the past.

When was that article published?

EDIT: see, no results, weird;

Added it to the latest IPO post - maybe 212 will have more luck finding it.

Probably a few others missing at this rate too.

@Joey_Fantana , thanks for all your work and incredible commitment.

Ribbit Leap has an interesting fintech VC backgrond and “Ribbit LEAP is not using the traditional founder share structure most SPACs employ. Instead, the company is using performance-based founder shares which vest in four equal tranches upon achieving outsized share performance following completion of its business combination.”

They are early investors in Coinbase, Robinhood and Revolut, so it will be fun to watch how this story develops.
