Founder Shares
On January 27, 2021, the Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 for certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of 11,500,000 shares of Series F common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Founder Shares”). On April 8, 2021, the Sponsor surrendered 2,875,000 Founder Shares to the Company for no consideration resulting in an aggregate of 8,625,000 Founder Shares outstanding.
The initial stockholders agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares (or shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Founder Shares) until the earlier to occur of: (i) one year after the completion of the Partnering Transaction or earlier if, subsequent to the Partnering Transaction, the closing price of the shares of Series A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub-divisions, capitalization of shares, share dividends, rights issuances, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Partnering Transaction, and (ii) the date following the completion of the Partnering Transaction on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of Series A common stock for cash, securities or other property.
Affiliated Units
The Sponsor purchased 4,000,000 of the 34,500,000 Units issued in the IPO at the offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating proceeds of $40,000,000 (the “Affiliated Units”). Each Affiliated Unit consists of one Public Share and one-third of one Public Warrant. As part of the Affiliated Units, the Sponsor holds 1,333,333 of the 11,500,000 Public Warrants outstanding. Each whole Public Warrant will entitle the Sponsor to purchase one share of Series A common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The underwriters did not receive any underwriting discounts or commissions on the Affiliated Units. The shares of Series A common stock subject to possible redemption underlying the Affiliated Units are presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of stockholders’ equity on the Condensed Balance Sheets.
Private Placement
In conjunction with the IPO, the Company completed the Private Placement of 1,090,000 Private Placement Units at a price of $10.00 per Private Placement Unit with the Sponsor, generating proceeds of $10,900,000. Each Private Placement Unit consists of one share of Series A common stock and one-third of one Private Placement Warrant. As part of the Private Placement Units, the Sponsor holds 363,333 Private Placement Warrants. Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one share of Series A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. If the Company does not complete a Partnering Transaction within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Units will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to the Private Placement Warrants.
Forward Purchase
On May 28, 2021, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”) with the Sponsor pursuant to which the Sponsor committed to purchase from the Company, at the Company’s election, up to 10,000,000 forward purchase units (the “Forward Purchase Units”), with each Forward Purchase Unit consisting of one share of Series B common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Forward Purchase Shares”), and one-third of one warrant to purchase one share of Series A common stock (the “Forward Purchase Warrants”), for $10.00 per Forward Purchase Unit, in an aggregate amount of up to $100,000,000, in a private placement that would close concurrently with the closing of the Partnering Transaction. The proceeds from the sale of these Forward Purchase Units, together with the amounts available to the Company from the Trust Account (after giving effect to any redemptions of Public Shares) and any other equity or debt financing obtained by the Company in connection with the Partnering Transaction, would be used to satisfy the cash requirements of the Partnering Transaction, if the Company elected, including funding the purchase price, paying expenses and retaining specified amounts to be used by the post-Partnering Transaction company for working capital or other purposes. To the extent that the amounts available from the Trust Account and other financing are sufficient for such cash requirements, the Sponsor may purchase, at the Company’s election, less than 10,000,000 Forward Purchase Units. The terms of the Forward Purchase Warrants will generally be identical to the terms of the Public Warrants included in the Units issued in the IPO. There were no Forward Purchase Units outstanding as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.
Related Party Loans
On January 27, 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company up to $300,000 pursuant to a promissory note. The promissory note was non-interest bearing, unsecured and due upon the closing of the IPO. All outstanding borrowings under the promissory note were repaid in full on May 28, 2021. Subsequent to the IPO, borrowing capacity under the promissory note was no longer available to the Company.
In addition, in order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a Partnering Transaction, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors, may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Partnering Transaction, the Company may repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans may be repaid only out of funds held outside of the Trust Account. In the event that a Partnering Transaction does not close, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside of the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account can be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Partnering Transaction, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $2,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into units of the post-Partnering Transaction entity at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Placement Units. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Company had no borrowings under the Working Capital Loans as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.
Services Agreement
On May 28, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement in which commencing on the date the Company’s securities were first listed on the NYSE through the earlier of consummation of the Partnering Transaction or its liquidation, the Company agreed to pay Post Holdings, Inc. (“Post”) $40,000 per month for office space and administrative and support services provided to members of the Company’s management team. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company expensed $120,000 for services provided by Post which were included in “General and administrative expenses” in the Condensed Statement of Operations. The Company did not incur any service agreement expenses during the three months ended March 31, 2021. There were no receivables or payables with Post or the Sponsor as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.
In addition, the Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors, or any of their respective affiliates (including Post) will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with activities on the Company’s behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable Partnering Transactions. The audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made by the Company to the Sponsor, the Company’s officers or directors, or any of their respective affiliates. Any such payments prior to a Partnering Transaction will be made from funds held outside of the Trust Account.
