Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 15, 2020, the Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-248267) (the “Registration Statement”) relating to the initial public offering (the “IPO”) of Executive Network Partnering Corporation (the “Company”) was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Company subsequently filed, on September 15, 2020, a registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-248828) pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, which was effective immediately upon filing. On September 18, 2020, the Company consummated the IPO of 14,400,000 CAPSTM (the “CAPSTM”), including the issuance of 2,160,000 CAPSTM as a result of the underwriters’ exercise in full of their over-allotment option. Each CAPSTM consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant of the Company, each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $28.75 per share (the “Warrants”). The CAPSTM were sold at a price of $25.00 per share, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $414,000,000.
On September 17, 2020, the Company effected a 1-for-1.2 forward stock split (the “Forward Stock Split”) with respect to the Company’s Class F common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, resulting in the Company’s initial stockholders holding an aggregate of 828,000 founder shares.
Substantially concurrently with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 245,600 CAPSTM (the “Private Placement CAPSTM”) at a purchase price of $25.00 per Private Placement CAPSTM, to the Company’s sponsor, ENPC Holdings, LLC, the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $6,140,000 (the “Private Placement”). The Private Placement CAPSTM sold in the Private Placement are identical to the CAPSTM sold in the IPO, except that, with respect to the warrants underlying the Private Placement CAPSTM (the “Private Placement Warrants”) that are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees, such warrants (i) may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis, (ii) are not subject to being called for redemption (except in certain circumstances when the Warrants are called for redemption and a certain price per share of Common Stock threshold is met) and (iii) subject to certain limited exceptions, will be subject to transfer restrictions until 30 days following the consummation of the Company’s partnering transaction. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by holders other than the Sponsor or its permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company in all redemption scenarios and exercisable by holders on the same basis as the Warrants.
A total of $414,000,000, comprised of the proceeds from the IPO and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement CAPSTM, were placed in a U.S.-based trust account at JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee. Except with respect to interest earned on the funds in the trust account that may be released to the Company to pay its taxes, if any, such funds in the trust account will not be released from the trust account until the earliest to occur of: (i) the completion of the Company’s partnering transaction, (ii) the redemption of any public shares properly tendered in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “A&R Certificate of Incorporation”) (A) to modify the substance or timing of its obligation to redeem 100% of its public shares if the Company does not complete its partnering transaction within 24 months (or 27 months if the Company has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for their partnering transaction within 24 months) from the closing of the IPO or (B) with respect to any other provisions relating to stockholders’ rights or pre-partnering transaction activity and (iii) the redemption of all of the Company’s public shares if the Company has not completed its partnering transaction within 24 months (or 27 months as applicable) from the closing of the IPO, subject to applicable law.
In connection with the IPO, the Company entered into the following agreements previously filed as exhibits to the Company’s Registration Statement:
An Underwriting Agreement, dated September 15, 2020, between the Company and Evercore Group L.L.C., as representative of the underwriters named therein, which contains customary representations and warranties and indemnification of the underwriters by the Company;

A Registration and Stockholder Rights Agreement, dated September 15, 2020, among the Company, the Sponsor and certain other security holders named therein, which provides for customary demand and piggy-back registration rights, transfer restrictions with respect to the Company’s securities, and, upon consummation of our partnering transaction, the right of the Sponsor to nominate three individuals for election to the Company’s board of directors;
A Private Placement CAPSTM Purchase Agreement, dated September 15, between the Company and the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Sponsor purchased 245,600 Private Placement CAPSTM, each CAPSTM consisting of one share of Common Stock and one-fourth of one warrant, each whole warrant exercisable to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock at $28.75 per share;
An Administrative Services Agreement, dated September 15, 2020, between the Company and Sponsor, providing for the payment by the Company to an affiliate of the Sponsor of up to $20,000 per month for office space and administrative support services; and
A Letter Agreement, dated September 15, 2020, among the Company, the Sponsor and each executive officer and director of the Company, pursuant to which the Sponsor and each executive officer and director of the Company has agreed to vote any Class A Common Stock held by him, her or it in favor of the Company’s partnering transaction; to facilitate the liquidation and winding up of the Company if a partnering transaction is not consummated within 24 months (or 27 months if the Company has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for their partnering transaction within 24 months); to certain transfer restrictions with respect to the Company’s securities; to certain indemnification obligations of the Sponsor; and the Company has agreed not to enter into a definitive agreement regarding a partnering transaction without the prior consent of the Sponsor.
