Arab music streamer Anghami Inc (NASDAQ: ANGH) stock is plummeting today after soaring in yesterday's session. What's happening?

Anghami Inc (NASDAQ: ANGH) went public this week via SPAC after a merger with Vista Media. Yesterday the ANGH share price soared over 160%, despite being halted several times during the session.

SPAC companies have a complex structure that often involves early investors redeeming their shares for cash during or shortly after IPO. That may be what happened here, resulting in a short squeeze. 

Following the merger, the company has 25,768,967 ordinary shares issued and outstanding, 10,947,800 warrants to purchase ordinary shares at an exercise price of $11.50 per share issued and outstanding and 500,000 warrants to purchase ordinary shares at an exercise price of $12.00 per share issued and outstanding.

ANGH stock is down by approx. 40% in early trading on Friday.
