Carsome weighs US listing with SPAC as option

The startup is working with advisers and is seeking a valuation of about US$2bil (RM8.3bil) in a listing, which could be a merger with a special purpose acquisition company or a conventional initial public offering, said the people. A deal to take the company public could take place as soon as the end of the year, they said.
