INTRODUCTORY NOTE
 
Due to the large number of events reported under the specified items of Form 8-K, this Current Report on Form 8-K is being filed in two parts. An amendment to this Form 8-K is being submitted for filing on the same date to include additional matters under Items 3.03, 5.03, 5.05 and 8.01 of Form 8-K.
 
On June 16, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), WM Technology, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or “WM Technology”) (f/k/a Silver Spike Acquisition Corp. (“Silver Spike”)), consummated the previously announced merger (the “Closing”) pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated December 10, 2020 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Silver Spike, Silver Spike Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Silver Spike (“Merger Sub”), WM Holding Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (when referred to in its pre-Business Combination (as defined below) capacity, “Legacy WMH”), and Ghost Media Group, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company, solely in its capacity as the initial holder representative (the “Holder Representative”). The Company’s shareholders approved the business combination (the “Business Combination”) and the change of Silver Spike’s jurisdiction of incorporation from the Cayman Islands to the State of Delaware by deregistering as an exempted company in the Cayman Islands and domesticating and continuing as a corporation formed under the laws of the State of Delaware (the “Domestication”) at a special meeting of stockholders held on June 10, 2021 (the “Second Special Meeting”). Prior to the Second Special Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved an amendment to the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company to extend the date by which, if the Company has not consummated a merger, amalgamation, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, the Company must (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) redeem all of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares included as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering that was consummated on August 19, 2019 and (iii) liquidate and dissolve, from February 12, 2021 to July 10, 2021 at a special meeting of stockholders held on January 13, 2021 (the “First Special Meeting”). In connection with the First Special Meeting, the Second Special Meeting and the Business Combination, holders of 11,437 Silver Spike’s Class A ordinary shares (“Class A Ordinary Shares”), or 0.05% of the shares with redemption rights, exercised their right to redeem their shares for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.17 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of $116,314.29.
 
Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Business Combination was effected through the merger (the “Merger”) of Merger Sub with and into Legacy WMH, with Legacy WMH surviving as a subsidiary of Silver Spike (when referred to in its post-Business Combination capacity, “WMH LLC”). On the Closing Date, the Company changed its name from Silver Spike Acquisition Corp. to WM Technology, Inc.
 
Upon the consummation of the Domestication, each of Silver Spike’s currently issued and outstanding Class A Ordinary Shares and Class B ordinary shares (“Class B Ordinary Shares”) automatically converted by operation of law, on a one-for-one basis, into shares of Class A common stock of the Company (“Class A Common Stock”). Similarly, all of Silver Spike’s outstanding warrants became warrants to acquire shares of Class A Common Stock, and no other changes were made to the terms of any outstanding warrants.
 
The Business Combination was accomplished through what is commonly referred to as an “Up-C” structure, which is often used by partnerships and limited liability companies undertaking an initial public offering. The Up-C structure allowed the Legacy WMH equity holders to retain their equity ownership in WMH LLC, an entity that is classified as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes, in the form of WMH LLC Class A units (“Class A Units”) and WMH LLC Class P units (“Class P Units”) and provides potential future tax benefits for both the Company and the WMH LLC equity holders when they ultimately exchange their pass-through interests for shares of Class A Common Stock. The Company is a holding company, and immediately after the consummation of the Business Combination, its principal asset is its ownership interest and managing member interest in WMH LLC.
 
A description of the Business Combination and the terms of the Merger Agreement are included in the final prospectus and definitive proxy statement, dated May 25, 2021 (the “Proxy Statement/Prospectus”) filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in the section entitled “Proposal No. 1—The Business Combination Proposal” beginning on page 160 of the Proxy Statement/Prospectus.
 

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.
 
On December 10, 2020, a number of purchasers subscribed to purchase from the Company an aggregate of 32,500,000 shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock (the “PIPE Shares”), for a purchase price of $10.00 per share and an aggregate purchase price of $325,000,000, pursuant to separate subscription agreements (each, a “Subscription Agreement”). The sale of PIPE Shares was consummated concurrently with the Closing. A description of the Subscription Agreements is included in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus in the section entitled “The Business Combination—Related Agreements—PIPE Subscription Agreement” beginning on page 125 of the Proxy Statement/Prospectus.

After the Closing, the Company became a holding company whose only assets consist of equity interests in WMH  LLC.
