    Nov 30 (Reuters) - Smart-glass maker View Inc said on Monday
it would go public through a $1.6 billion merger with a
blank-check company sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.
    View, which expects up to $800 million in proceeds from the
deal, said the combined company would be publicly listed on the
Nasdaq after the merger with CF Finance Acquisition Corp II

    A blank-check company, or a special purpose acquisition
company (SPAC), is a shell vehicle that uses capital raised
through an initial public offering (IPO) to buy a private
company, usually within two years. The deal then takes the
private company public.
    SPACs have emerged as a quick route to the stock market for
companies, particularly auto technology startups concerned about
the risk of the lengthy IPO process.
