The confirmation from the trading company came after media reports of its plans to go public a few months ago.

The combined companies will operate underthe name eToro Group Ltd, and the estimated cost will be about $ 10.4 billion. The official announcement specifies that $ 650 million will be raised through a private placement in public capital, and another $ 250 million - through funds from FinTech V. Private investors, including ION Investment, Softbank and Fidelity, will receive $ 10 share capital for share.

EToro's existing investors will own 91 percent of the combined company formed by the SPAC merger.

Companies for the acquisition of shares in a specialassignments (SPACs) have been gaining popularity in recent years as operating firms seek an easier route to the stock exchange instead of the traditional initial public offering (IPO) process.
