Falcon Peak Acquisition in an SEC filing today said it is withdrawing a registered offerring of 25 million units at $10 each.
The SPAC’s founder, Tom Barrack, dropped the IPO following his indictment on charges of illegally lobbying for a foreign government.
Falcon Peak was co-sponsored by venture firm TI Capital Management and Falcon Peak Partners, Barrack’s family office.
