Velocity SPAC brand, backed by Eli Manning, prepares an IPO

The SPAC is controlled by private equity firm Brand Velocity Partners, which was founded in 2019. It has acquired home brands such as BBQGuys, Blaze Outdoor Products and Magma stainless-steel grills. It also bought Original Footwear Co., which specializes in shoes and boots for the military and law enforcement.

Brand Velocity Acquisition Corp., the blank-check firm whose guides include previous National Football League quarterback Eli Manning, dropped its arrangements for an initial public offering. The special reason acquisition organization, or SPAC, requested to withdraw its enrollment for an IPO in a filing Wednesday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The organization filed  last March to raise $200 million to look for a consolidation target, saying it planned to focus in on “a branded consumer-facing businesses in North America.”

Growing skepticism from investors and a crackdown by regulators have cooled the once-hot SPAC market. A global market rout has added to the pressure on blank-check firms, with the De-SPAC Index slumping nearly 29% this month.
