How Kensington managed to keep its SPAC on-track during the onset of the COVID-19 crisis.

Background

Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp (KCAC) had begun the process of SPAC formation just as the global pandemic was bringing the world to a standstill.

Challenge

Since the crisis had forced KCAC’s team of executives, advisors, and legal counselors to work in isolation from remote home offices, they needed to find a secure and cost-effective way to connect and manage all of the moving parts associated with SPAC SEC documentation and filings.

Solution and Results

With DFIN’s suite of essential cloud-based tools, KCAC was able to drive its venture through to bell-ringing while keeping the entire project on budget.

"DFIN went above and beyond our expectations. They were the right price, the right platform, and the right people to get this monumental task done. Plus, they have all of the post-acquisition tools required for all SEC filings and annual reporting."
