Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On January 12, 2021, Prospector Capital Corp. (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 32,500,000 (the “Units”), including the issuance of 2,500,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise in part of their option to purchase additional Units. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A ordinary shares”), and one-third of one redeemable warrant of the Company (“Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share for $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $325,000,000.

 

In connection with the IPO, the Company entered into the following agreements, forms of which were previously filed as exhibits to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-251523) for the IPO, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 18, 2020 (as amended, the “Registration Statement”), with the exception of the Private Placement Warrants Purchase Agreement:

Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, pursuant to the Private Placement Warrants Purchase Agreement, the Company completed the private sale of an aggregate of 500,000 private placement warrants to Prospector Sponsor LLC at a purchase price of $1.50 per private placement warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $750,000 (the “Pricing Private Placement”). The private placement warrants are identical to the Warrants sold in the IPO, except that the private placement warrants, so long as they are held by Prospector Sponsor LLC or its permitted transferees, (i) are not redeemable by the Company except as set forth in the Warrant Agreement, (ii) may not (including the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of such private placement warrants), subject to certain limited exceptions, be transferred, assigned or sold by such holders until 30 days after the completion of the Company’s initial business combination, (iii) may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis and (iv) will be entitled to registration rights. No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sales. The Pricing Private Placement was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
