Item 8.01. Other Events.
As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated March 15, 2021, Silver Spike Acquisition Corp II (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 25,000,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Ordinary Shares”), and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant of the Company (“Warrant”), each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Class A Ordinary Share for $11.50 per share. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $250,000,000.
Substantially concurrently with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 4,666,667 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to Silver Spike Sponsor II, LLC (the “Sponsor”) at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $7,000,000.00. The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the warrants sold as part of the Units in the IPO except that, so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees: (1) they will not be redeemable by the Company; (2) they (including the Class A Ordinary Shares issuable upon exercise of these warrants) may not, subject to certain limited exceptions, be transferred, assigned or sold by the Sponsor until 30 days after the completion of the initial business combination; (3) they may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis; and (4) they (including the Class A Ordinary Shares issuable upon exercise of these warrants) are entitled to registration rights.
In connection with the IPO, the underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the prospectus (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to purchase up to 3,750,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments (the “Option Units”). On March 23, 2021, the underwriters purchased 3,750,000 Option Units pursuant to the full exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. The Option Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating aggregate additional gross proceeds of $37,500,000 to the Company.
Also, in connection with the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option, the Sponsor purchased an additional 500,000 private placement warrants at a purchase price of $1.50 per private placement warrant.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
