Note 1—Description of Organization, Business Operations and Basis of Presentation

 

Colicity Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on October 19, 2020. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). Although the Company is not limited to a particular industry or sector for purposes of consummating a Business Combination, the Company intends to initially focus its search on identifying a prospective target business in the technology, media and telecommunications (“TMT”) industries in the United States and other developed countries.

 

All activity for the period from October 19, 2020 (inception) through March 31, 2021 relates to the Company’s formation, its Initial Public Offering (as defined below), and identifying a target company for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of a Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates non-operating income in the form of interest income from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering.

 

The Company’s sponsor is X-icity Holdings Corporation, a Washington corporation (the “sponsor”). The registration statement for the Initial Public Offering was declared effective on February 23, 2021. On February 26, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 34,500,000 units (the “Units” and the shares of Class A common stock included in the Units, the “Public Shares”), including the underwriters’ exercise of their full over-allotment option of 4,500,000 units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $345.0 million (the “Initial Public Offering”), and incurring offering costs of approximately $18.8 million, inclusive of approximately $11.8 million in deferred underwriting commissions (Note 7). 

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 5,933,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to the Company’s Sponsor, X-icity Holdings Corporation, at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $8,900,000.

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, a total of $345.0 million ($10.00 per Unit), consisting of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain of the proceeds of the Private Placement, was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”), located in the United States at J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and will only be invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, until the earlier of (i) the completion of a Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

 

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete one or more initial Business Combinations having an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (as defined above) (net of amounts disbursed to management for working capital purposes and excluding the amount of any deferred underwriting discount held in trust) at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”).

The Company will provide holders of the Company’s outstanding shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, sold in the Initial Public Offering (the “Public Stockholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares (as defined below) upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) without a stockholder vote by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The Public Stockholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then held in the Trust Account (initially anticipated to be $10.00 per Public Share). The per-share amount to be distributed to Public Stockholders who redeem their Public Shares will not be reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company will pay to the underwriters (as discussed in Note 6). These Public Shares are recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. The Company will not redeem the Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. If a stockholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a stockholder vote for business or other legal reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, stockholder approval of the transaction is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain stockholder approval for business or legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. Additionally, each public stockholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the initial stockholders (as defined below) have agreed to vote their Founder Shares (as defined below in Note 5) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of a Business Combination. In addition, the initial stockholders have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination.

 

The Company’s Certificate of Incorporation provides that a public stockholder, together with any affiliate of such stockholder or any other person with whom such stockholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), is restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 20% or more of the Public Shares, without the prior consent of the Company.

 

The sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors (the “initial stockholders”) have agreed not to propose an amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below) or with respect to any other material provisions relating to stockholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity, unless the Company provides the Public Stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares in conjunction with any such amendment.

 

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination by February 26, 2023 (the “Combination Period”), the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the public shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (less amounts released to pay taxes and up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding public shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholders and the Company’s board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject, in each case, to its obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the warrants, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the 24- month time period.

The initial stockholders have agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to the Founder Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the initial stockholders acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to the deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within in the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only $10.00. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the sponsor has agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party (except for the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm) for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement or business combination agreement (a “Target”), reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below the lesser of (i) $10.00 per Public Share and (ii) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, if less than $10.00 per Public Share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, less taxes payable, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims by a third party or Target that executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) nor will it apply to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (except for the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

 

Note 2—Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the SEC. Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s prospectus for its Initial Public Offering filed with the SEC on February 25, 2021 (the “Prospectus”), as well as the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 4, 2021 (see Note 3). The financial information as of December 31, 2020 is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the Prospectus. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021 or for any future interim periods.

 

Emerging Growth Company

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

 

7

 

 

Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statements declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such an election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period, which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with those of another public company that is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company that has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $1.3 million in its operating bank account and working capital of approximately $1.7 million.

 

Prior to the completion of the Initial Public Offering, the Company’s liquidity needs had been satisfied through the receipt of $25,000 from the sponsor in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares, and a promissory note (the “Note”) issued by the sponsor (Note 6). The Company repaid the Note on February 26, 2021. Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, the Company’s liquidity needs have been satisfied with the proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the sponsor may provide the Company Working Capital Loans (see Note 6). As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there were no Working Capital Loans outstanding.

 

Based on the foregoing, management believes that the Company has sufficient working capital and borrowing capacity to meet its needs through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or one year from the date of this financial statement. Over this time period, the Company will be using these funds for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective initial Business Combination candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to merge with or acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

  

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.

 

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from the Company’s estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

 

8

 

 

Marketable Securities Held in Trust Account

 

At March 31, 2021, substantially all of the assets held in the Trust Account were held in U.S. Treasury Securities. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had not withdrawn any of the interest earned on the Trust Account to pay franchise or income tax obligations. The Company did not have any marketable securities held in a trust account at December 31, 2020.

 

Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering

 

Offering costs consist of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred that are directly related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs amounted to $18.8 million of which $0.5 million were allocated to the warrant liabilities and expensed immediately and $18.3 million were charged to stockholders’ equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering and the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. 

 

Warrant Liabilities

 

The Company accounts for warrants as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the warrant’s specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in FASB ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”) and ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the warrants are indexed to the Company’s common stock, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of warrant issuance and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the warrants are outstanding.

 

For issued or modified warrants that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded as a component of additional paid-in capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified warrants that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of the warrants are recognized as a non-cash gain or loss on the statements of operations. The fair value of the warrants was estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation approach (see Note 9).

 

Class A common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

 

The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features redemption rights that is either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2021, there were 30,951,059 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed balance sheet. The Company did not have any Class A common stock subject to possible redemption at December 31, 2020.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes under FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

FASB ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statements recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.

 

The Company’s currently taxable income primarily consists of interest income on the Trust Account less any franchise taxes. The Company’s general and administrative costs are generally considered start-up costs and are not currently deductible. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recorded no income tax expense. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021, was 0%, which differs from the expected income tax rate due to the Company recording a full valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets as of March 31, 2021.

   

Net Income (Loss) per Common Share

 

Net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. The Company has not considered the effect of warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement to purchase 12,833,333 shares of Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted income (loss) per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events and the inclusion of such warrants would be anti-dilutive.

 

The Company’s condensed statement of operations includes a presentation of income (loss) per share for common shares subject to possible redemption in a manner similar to the two-class method of income per share. Net income per common share, basic and diluted, for Class A common stock is calculated by dividing the interest income earned on the Trust Account of $6,916 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 (net of applicable franchise and income taxes of approximately $7,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021), by the weighted average number of Class A common stock for the period. Net loss per common share, basic and diluted, for Class B common stock is calculated by dividing the net loss, less income attributable to Class A common stock, by the weighted average number of Class B common stock outstanding for the period. Class B common stock includes the Founder Shares as these shares do not have any redemption features and do not participate in the income earned on the Trust Account.

 

The following table reflects the calculation of basic and diluted net income (loss) per common share (in dollars, except per share amounts):

 

  Three months ended March 31, 
  2021 
Class A Common Stock   
Numerator: Earnings allocable to Class A common stock   
Interest income $6,916 
Income and franchise tax  (6,916)
Net Income $- 
Denominator: Weighted average Class A common stock    
Class A common stock, basic and diluted  34,500,000 
Earnings per share/basic and diluted Class A common stock $0.00 
Class B Common Stock    
Numerator: Net loss less Class A common stock net income    
Net loss $(3,270,098)
Class A common stock net income  - 
Net loss $(3,270,098)
Denominator: Weighted average Class B common stock    
Class B common stock, basic and diluted  8,625,000 
Loss per share/basic and diluted Class B common stock $(0.38)

  

Note: for the three months ended March 31, 2021, basic and diluted shares are the same as there are no non-redeemable securities that are dilutive to the Company’s common stockholders.

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation coverage limit of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

 

Financial Instruments

 

The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under FASB ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the balance sheet.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company’s management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying financial statement.

 

Note 3 — Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statement

 

Background of the Restatement

 

On April 12, 2021, the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC Staff”) issued a public statement entitled “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”)” (the “SEC Staff Statement”). In the SEC Staff Statement, the SEC Staff expressed its view that certain terms and conditions common to SPAC warrants may require the warrants to be classified as liabilities on the SPAC’s balance sheet as opposed to equity.

 

In the February 26, 2021 audited balance sheet, filed with the SEC on March 4, 2021 in a Current Report on Form 8-K, the Company accounted for its warrants as equity. However, after considering the SEC Statement, review of the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity” and discussions with the Company’s independent auditors, management concluded that provisions in the warrant agreements preclude the warrants from being accounted for as components of equity. As the warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the Company concluded that the warrants should have been recorded as derivative liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value at February 26, 2021 (inception).

 

Further, ASC 815 requires that that upfront costs and fees related to items for which the fair value option is elected (the warrant liabilities) should be recognized as expense as incurred. Accordingly, a portion of the offering costs included in equity on February 26, 2021, should have been recorded as expense.

 

Effects of the Restatement

 

The following tables summarizes the effect of the restatement on specific line items in its February 26, 2021 audited closing date balance sheet:

 

  As Previously Reported  Adjustments  As Restated 
Balance Sheet as of February 26, 2021:         
Warrant liabilities $-  $17,801,000  $17,801,000 
Total liabilities  11,894,317   17,801,000   29,695,317 
Class A common stock subject to possible redemption  330,104,500   (17,801,000)  312,303,500 
Class A common stock  149   178   327 
Additional paid-in capital  5,007,069   494,568   5,501,637 
Accumulated deficit  (8,076)  (494,746)  (502,822)

Note 4 — Initial Public Offering

 

On February 26, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 34,500,000 Units, including the underwriters’ exercise of their full over-allotment option, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $345.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $18.8 million, inclusive of approximately $11.8 million in deferred underwriting commissions.

 

Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, and one-fifth of one redeemable warrant (each, a “Public Warrant”). Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 8).

 

Pendrell Corporation, the parent of the sponsor (“Pendrell”), and an affiliate of Craig McCaw, the Company’s chief executive officer, purchased an aggregate of 400,000 Units in the Initial Public Offering at the public offering price. The underwriters did not receive any underwriting discounts or commissions on the Units purchased by these parties. If the Company submits its initial business combination to its public stockholders for a vote, its initial stockholders have agreed to vote their founder shares and any public shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of the initial business combination. As a result, in addition to the initial stockholders’ founder shares and the shares underlying the Units purchased by these parties in the Initial Public Offering, the Company would need 12,537,501, or 36.3%, of the 34,500,000 public shares sold in the Initial Public Offering to be voted in favor of an initial business combination in order to have the initial business combination approved (assuming all outstanding shares are voted).

 

Note 5—Private Placement

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 5,933,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to the Company’s Sponsor, X-icity Holdings Corporation, at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $8,900,000. Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one whole share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants to the sponsor was added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering to be held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. The Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable for cash and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by the sponsor or its permitted transferees unless the Company calls for a redemption of all warrants when the reported price of the Class A common stock is at least $10.00 per share and no more than $18.00 per share.

 

The sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Private Placement Warrants until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination.

 

Note 6 — Related Party Transactions

 

Founder Shares

 

On October 20, 2020, the sponsor paid for certain offering costs for an aggregate price of $25,000 in exchange for issuance of 7,187,500 shares of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, (the “Founder Shares”). On February 3, 2021, the Company effected a 312,500 share stock dividend, on February 8, 2021, the Company effected a 1.0541667-for-1 common stock split and on February 23, 2021, the Company effected a 1.0909091-for-1 common stock split, resulting in an aggregate of 8,625,000 shares of Class B common stock outstanding. Our sponsor transferred 40,250 founder shares to each of Wayne Perry, Dennis Weibling and Cathleen A. Massey, our independent director nominees; 195,500 founder shares to Craig O. McCaw, director and Chief Executive Officer; 115,000 founder shares to Randy Russell, Chief Investment Officer; 97,750 founder shares to R. Gerard Salemme, director; 57,500 founder shares to Steve Ednie, Chief Financial Officer; and 329,648 founder shares to other directors, officers, employees, consultants and affiliates of Pendrell, in each case for approximately the same per-share price initially paid by our sponsor, resulting in our sponsor holding 7,708,852 founder shares. The Founder Shares, on an as-converted basis, represent 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares.

 

12

 

 

The initial stockholders have agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (i) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (ii) the date following the completion of the initial Business Combination on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their common stock for cash, securities or other property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the closing price of the Company’s Class A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination or (2) if the Company consummates a transaction after the initial Business Combination which results in the stockholders having the right to exchange their shares for cash, securities or other property, the Founder Shares will be released from the lock-up.

 

Related Party Loans

 

On October 20, 2020, the sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). The loan was non-interest bearing, unsecured and due at the earlier of May 31, 2021 or the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The loan was repaid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering out of the $1,000,000 of offering proceeds that had been allocated to the payment of offering expenses.

 

In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, 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 Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. 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 Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company did not have any borrowings under the Working Capital Loans.

 

Administrative Services Agreement

 

The Company entered into an agreement whereby, commencing on February 23, 2021 and continuing until the earlier of the Company’s consummation of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will pay an affiliate of the sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial and administrative services. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company incurred $11,786 in fees for these services.

 

The sponsor, executive officers and directors, or any of their respective affiliates, 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 Business Combinations. The Company’s audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made to the sponsor, officers, directors or their affiliates.

Note 7—Commitments and Contingencies

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, if any, (and any shares of Class A common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans and upon conversion of the Founder Shares) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement. These holders are entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statement. The registration rights agreement does not provide for any maximum cash penalties nor any penalties connected with delays in registering the Company’s common stock.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of this financial statement. The financial statement does not include any adjustments that might results from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Underwriting Agreement

 

The underwriters received an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit (excluding the 400,000 units purchased by Pendrell and an affiliate of Craig McCaw as well as 517,500 shares purchased by certain other parties (total of 917,500 shares) with respect to which no underwriting discount is payable), or $6,716,500 in the aggregate, upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. $0.35 per unit (excluding the 400,000 units purchased by Pendrell and an affiliate of Craig McCaw as well as 517,500 shares purchased by certain other parties (total of 917,500 shares) with respect to which no underwriting discount is payable), or $11,753,875 in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Note 8 — Stockholders’ Equity

 

Class A Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 200,000,000 shares of Class A common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. At March 31, 2021, there were 3,548,941 shares of Class A common stock issued or outstanding, excluding 30,951,059 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption. There were no shares of Class A common stock issued or outstanding at December 31, 2020.

 

Class B Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 20,000,000 shares of Class B common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. In October 2020, the Company issued 7,187,500 shares of Class B common stock, on February 3, 2021, the Company effected a 312,500 share stock dividend, on February 8, 2021, the Company effected a 1.0541667-for-1 common stock split and on February 23, 2021, the Company effected a 1.0909091-for-1 common stock split, resulting in an aggregate of 8,625,000 shares of Class B common stock outstanding.

  

Stockholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by stockholders. Holders of Class A common stock and holders of Class B common stock will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of our stockholders except as required by law.

 

The Class B common stock will automatically convert into Class A common stock at the time of the initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like, and subject to further adjustment as provided herein. In the case that additional shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities are issued or deemed issued in connection with the initial Business Combination, the number of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the total number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding after such conversion (after giving effect to any redemptions of shares of Class A common stock by Public Stockholders), including the total number of shares of Class A common stock issued, or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued, by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, excluding any shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities or rights exercisable for or convertible into shares of Class A common stock issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination and any Private Placement Warrants issued to the sponsor, officers or directors upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, provided that such conversion of Founder Shares will never occur on a less than one-for-one basis.

 

14

 

 

Preferred Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.

 

Warrants — Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional Public Warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Public Warrants will trade. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination or (b) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering; provided in each case that the Company has an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants and a current prospectus relating to them is available (or the Company permits holders to exercise their Public Warrants on a cashless basis and such cashless exercise is exempt from registration under the Securities Act). The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 15 business days, after the closing of a Business Combination, the Company will use its best efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Company will use its best efforts to cause the same to become effective and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration of the Public Warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. Notwithstanding the above, if the Class A common stock is at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that it satisfies the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless” basis, and, in the event the Company so elects, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, but the Company will be required to use its best efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

 

If (x) the Company issues additional shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of its initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per share of Class A common stock (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the initial stockholders or their affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the initial stockholders or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 50% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of the initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the Class A common stock during the 10 trading day period starting on the trading day after the day on which the Company consummates the initial Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the Warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price of the Warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.

 

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or saleable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable so long as they are held by the sponsor or its permitted transferees, unless the Company calls for a redemption of all warrants when the reported price of the Class A common stock is at least $10.00 per share and no more than $18.00 per share (subject to the conditions described in more detail below). If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the sponsor or its permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

 

15

 

 

The Company may call only the Public Warrants for redemption:

 

 in whole and not in part;

 

 at a price of $0.01 per warrant;

  

 upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption; and

  

 if, and only if, (i) the warrants are currently exercisable, (ii) there is an effective registration statement covering the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants and (iii) the last sales price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share on each of 20 trading days within the 30-trading day period ending on the third business day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

 

If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis,” as described in the warrant agreement.

 

The Company may call both the Private Placement Warrants and the Public Warrants for redemption:

 

 in whole and not in part;

 

 at a price of $0.10 per warrant;

  

 upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption; and

  

 if, and only if, (i) there is an effective registration statement covering the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants, and a current prospectus relating thereto, available throughout the 30-day redemption period, and (ii) the last reported sales price of the Class A common stock reported has been at least $10.00 per share on the trading day prior to the date on which notice of the redemption is given.

 

During this 30-day redemption period in connection with a redemption of warrants when the price of the Class A common stock is at least $10.00 per share and no more than $18.00 per share, the holders of the warrants may elect to receive, in lieu of the redemption price, a number of shares of Class A common stock per warrant determined by reference to the table as set forth in the warrant agreement.

 

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.

 

Note 9 — Fair Value Measurements

 

At March 31, 2021, assets held in the Trust Account were comprised of $345,006,916 in money market funds which are invested in U.S. Treasury Securities. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had not withdrawn any of the interest earned on the Trust Account to pay franchise or income tax obligations. There were no funds held in the Trust Account at December 31, 2021.

 

At March 31, 2021, there were 6,900,000 Public Warrants and 5,933,333 Private Placement Warrants outstanding.

The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:

 

 Level 1:Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for an asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
   
 Level 2:Observable inputs other than Level 1 inputs. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
   
 Level 3:Unobservable inputs based on our assessment of the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

 

Description Level  March 31, 2021  December 31, 2021 
Assets:         
Marketable securities held in Trust Account – U.S. Treasury Securities Money Market Fund  1  $345,006,916  $       — 
Liabilities:            
Warrant liabilities  3   20,468,333    

 

Warrants

 

The warrants are accounted for as liabilities in accordance with ASC 815-40 and are presented within warrant liabilities on the Balance Sheet. The warrant liabilities are measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis, with changes in fair value presented within change in fair value of warrant liabilities in the Statement of Operations.

 

The Company established the initial fair value for the warrants on February 26, 2021, the date of the Company’s Initial Public Offering, using a Monte Carlo simulation model. The Company allocated the proceeds received from (i) the sale of Units (which is inclusive of one share of Class A common stock and one-fifth of one Public Warrant), (ii) the sale of Private Placement Warrants, and (iii) the issuance of Class B common stock, first to the warrants based on their fair values as determined at initial measurement, with the remaining proceeds allocated to Class A common stock subject to possible redemption (temporary equity), Class A common stock (permanent equity) and Class B common stock (permanent equity) based on their relative fair values at the initial measurement date.

 

The warrants were classified as Level 3 at March 31, 2021 and February 26, 2021 (inception) due to the use of unobservable inputs. There were no transfers between Levels 1, 2 or 3 during the three months ended March 31,2021.

 

17

 

 

The key inputs into the Monte Carlo simulation model for the warrants were as follows at March 31, 2021 and February 26, 2021:

 

Input 

March 31,

2021

  February 26, 2021 
Risk-free interest rate  1.14%  0.80%
Expected term (years)  5   5 
Expected volatility  27.00%  25.00%
Exercise price $11.50  $11.50 
Stock price $9.80  $9.70 

 

The Company’s use of a Monte Carlo simulation model required the use of subjective assumptions:

 

 The risk-free interest rate assumption was based on the U.S. Treasury rate for expected terms, which was commensurate with the contractual term of the warrants, which expire on the earlier of (i) five years after the completion of the initial business combination and (ii) upon redemption or liquidation. An increase in the risk-free interest rate, in isolation, would result in an increase in the fair value measurement of the warrant liabilities and vice versa.

 

 The expected term was determined based on the exercise period, the warrants become exercisable on the later of (i) 30 days after the completion of a business combination and (ii) 12 months from the Initial Public Offering date. An increase in the expected term, in isolation, would result in an increase in the fair value measurement of the warrant liabilities and vice versa.

 

 The expected volatility assumption was based on the implied volatility from a set of comparable publicly-traded warrants as determined based on the size and proximity of other similar business combinations. An increase in the expected volatility, in isolation, would result in an increase in the fair value measurement of the warrant liabilities and vice versa.

 

 

The stock price at Initial Public Offering (inception) and March 31, 2021 represents the unit price less one-fifth of the warrant price at the Initial Public Offering date. Commencing April 16, 2021, the Company’s Units were able to be separately traded as Class A common stock and warrants.

 

Based on the applied volatility assumption and the expected term to a business combination noted above, the Company determined that the fair value of the warrant liabilities at February 26, 2021 (inception) was $17.8 million. As of March 31, 2021, the aggregate value of the warrants were $20.5 million. The change in the fair value of the warrant liabilities of $2.7 million was recognized in the Statement of Operations.

 

The change in the fair value of the warrant liabilities for the period from February 26, 2021 (inception) through March 31, 2021 is summarized as follows:

 

  Warrant Liabilities 
Fair value as of December 31, 2020 $       — 
Initial measurement on February 26, 2021  17,801,000 
Change in fair value of warrant liabilities  2,667,333 
Fair value as of March 31, 2021 $20,468,333 

 

Note 10 — Subsequent Events

 

The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date through May 17, 2021, the date the unaudited condensed financial statements were issued. Based upon this review, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the unaudited condensed financial statements.

Overview

 

We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on October 19, 2020 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar Business Combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our Business Combination utilizing cash from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering, the partial exercise of the Over-Allotment Option and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt. Although we are not limited to a particular industry or sector for purposes of consummating a Business Combination, we intend to initially focus our search on identifying a prospective target business in the technology, media and telecommunications (“TMT”) industries in the United States and other developed countries. We are an emerging growth company and, as such, we are subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.

 

Our registration statement for the Initial Public Offering was declared effective on February 23, 2021. On February 26, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 34,500,000 units (the “Units” and the shares of Class A common stock included in the Units, the “Public Shares”), including the underwriters’ exercise of their full over-allotment option of 4,500,000 units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $345.0 million (the “Initial Public Offering”), and incurring offering costs of approximately $18.8 million, inclusive of approximately $11.8 million in deferred underwriting commissions. 

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 5,933,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to our Sponsor, X-icity Holdings Corporation, at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $8,900,000.

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, a total of $345.0 million was placed in the Trust Account and we had $2.0 million of cash held outside of the Trust Account, after payment of costs related to the Initial Public Offering, and available for working capital purposes. We incurred $18.9 million in transaction costs, including $6.7 million of underwriting fees, $11.8 million of deferred underwriting fees and $0.3 million of other costs.

 

19

 

 

Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Units, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination.

  

If we are unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or February 26, 2023 (the “Combination Period”), we will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to us (less taxes payable and up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any) and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of our remaining stockholders and our board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), to our obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and in all cases subject to the other requirements of applicable law.

  

Results of Operations

 

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from October 19, 2020 (inception) through March 31, 2021, were organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering, described below, and, after our Initial Public Offering, identifying a target company for a Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of a Business Combination. We expect to generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held after the Initial Public Offering. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had a net loss of $3,270,098, which consists of operating costs of $114,935, warrant offering costs of $494,746 and changes in fair value of warrant liabilities of $2,667,333, partially offset by interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $6,916.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had $1.3 million of cash and working capital of $1.7 million.

 

Prior to the completion of the Initial Public Offering, our liquidity needs had been satisfied through the Sponsor’s payment of $25,000 of our liabilities in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares, and a promissory note (the “Note”) issued by the Sponsor. We repaid the Note on February 26, 2021.

 

On February 26, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 34,500,000 Units, including the underwriters’ exercise of their full over-allotment option of 4,500,000 units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $345.0 million. Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of 5,933,333 Private Placement Warrants to our Sponsor at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $8,900,000.

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, a total of $345.0 million was placed in the Trust Account and we had $2.0 million of cash held outside of the Trust Account, after payment of costs related to the Initial Public Offering, and available for working capital purposes. We incurred $18.9 million in transaction costs, including $6.7 million of underwriting fees, $11.8 million of deferred underwriting fees and $0.3 million of other costs.

 

20

 

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $345,006,916. We intend to utilize substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less deferred underwriting commissions and income taxes payable), to complete our Business Combination. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $737,360. Net loss of $3,270,098 was impacted by the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $2,667,333 and deferred warrant offering costs of $303,250, partially offset by interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $6,916 and changes in operating assets and liabilities which used $430,929 of cash from operating activities.

 

We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination.

    

In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the initial stockholders or their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants identical to the Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender.

 

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating a Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our Business Combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete our Business Combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon consummation of our Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our Business Combination. If we are unable to complete our Business Combination because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account. In addition, following our Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of March 31, 2021.

 

Contractual obligations

 

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than an agreement to pay our Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, administrative and support services. We began incurring these fees on February 23, 2021 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of the Business Combination or our liquidation.

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, and securities that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, if any, will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement dated as of February 23, 2021. These holders are entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights. However, the registration rights agreement provides that we will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until the termination of the applicable lock-up period for the securities to be registered. We will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriting Agreement

 

The underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the final prospectus relating to the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at $10.00 per Unit. The underwriters exercised their full Over-Allotment Option concurrent with the consummation of the Initial Public Offering on February 26, 2021.

 

21

 

 

The underwriters were paid an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit (excluding the 400,000 units purchased by Pendrell and an affiliate of Craig McCaw as well as 517,500 shares purchased by certain other parties (total of 917,500 shares) with respect to which no underwriting discount is payable), or $6,716,500 in the aggregate, upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. $0.35 per unit (excluding the 400,000 units purchased by Pendrell and an affiliate of Craig McCaw as well as 517,500 shares purchased by certain other parties (total of 917,500 shares) with respect to which no underwriting discount is payable), or $11,753,875 in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates We have identified the following as a critical accounting policy:

 

Redeemable Shares of Class A Common Stock

 

All of the 34,500,000 shares of Class A common stock included in the Units sold as part of the Initial Public Offering contain a redemption feature as described in the prospectus for the public offering. In accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Codification Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity”, redemption provisions not solely within the control of Colicity Inc. require the security to be classified outside of permanent equity. Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides a minimum net tangible asset threshold of $5,000,001. Colicity Inc. recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and will adjust the carrying value of the security at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable shares will be affected by charges against additional paid-in capital.

 

Public and Private Placement Warrants

 

We account for the warrants issued in connection with our initial public offering in accordance with ASC 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity” (“ASC 815”), under which the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity classification and must be recorded as liabilities. As the warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the warrants are measured at fair value at inception and at each reporting date in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, with changes in fair value recognized in the Statement of Operations in the period of change. 

 

Recent accounting standards

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our financial statements.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K.

 

JOBS Act

 

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We qualify as an “emerging growth company” and under the JOBS Act are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As a result, the financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

 

Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an “emerging growth company,” we choose to rely on such exemptions we may not be required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis) and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of our Initial Public Offering or until we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” whichever is earlier.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item. As of March 31, 2021, we were not subject to any market or interest rate risk. Following the consummation of our Initial Public Offering, the net proceeds of our Initial Public Offering, including amounts in the Trust Account, have been invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

 

We have not engaged in any hedging activities since our inception and we do not expect to engage in any hedging activities with respect to the market risk to which we are exposed.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

On April 12, 2021, the staff at the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued a statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) (the “SEC Statement”). In the SEC Statement, the SEC staff noted that certain provisions in the typical SPAC warrant agreement may require that the warrants be classified as a liability measured at fair value, with changes in fair value reported each period in earnings, as compared to the historical treatment of the warrants as equity, which has been the practice of most SPACs, including us. We had previously classified our private placement warrants and public warrants as equity (for a full description of our private placement warrants and public warrants, refer to the registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333- 252811), filed in connection with the Company’s initial public offering, declared effective by the SEC on February 23, 2021).

 

After considering the SEC Statement, we concluded that there were misstatements in the February 26, 2021 audited closing balance sheet we filed with the SEC on Form 8-K on March 4, 2021. Based on the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity”, we concluded that provisions in the warrant agreement preclude the warrants from being accounted for as components of equity. As the warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the warrants should have been recorded as derivative liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value when issued as part of the Unit on February 26, 2021, and at each reporting date thereafter in accordance with ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement”, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations in the period of change. Further, ASC 815 requires that upfront costs and fees related to items for which the fair value option is elected (our warrant liabilities) should have been recognized as expense as incurred.

 

We have corrected the accounting for the warrants in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The effect of the restatement on specific line items in our February 26, 2021 audited closing date balance sheet can be found in footnote 3 of the Notes to Condensed Financial Statements.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

In connection with the restatement of our February 26, 2021 audited closing balance sheet, our management reassessed the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures that were in place as of March 31, 2021. As a result of that reassessment and in light of the SEC Statement, our management determined that our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021 were not effective solely as a result of its classification of the warrants as components of equity instead of as derivative liabilities. Due solely to the events that led to our restatement, management has made changes in internal controls related to the accounting for warrants issued in connection with our initial public offering. In light of the material weakness that we identified, we performed additional analysis as deemed necessary to ensure that our financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2021, were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q present fairly in all material respects our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the period presented.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. In light of the restatement of the previously filed financial statement, we plan to enhance our processes to identify and appropriately apply applicable accounting requirements to better evaluate and understand the nuances of the complex accounting standards that apply to our financial statements. Our plans at this time include providing enhanced access to accounting literature, research materials and documents and increased communication among our personnel and third-party professionals with whom we consult regarding complex accounting applications. The elements of our remediation plan can only be accomplished over time, and we can offer no assurance that these initiatives will ultimately have the intended effects.

As of the date of this Quarterly Report, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Registration Statement filed with the SEC.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

 

On October 20, 2020, our Sponsor paid for certain offering costs for an aggregate price of $25,000 in exchange for issuance of 7,187,500 shares of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share. On February 3, 2021, we effected a 312,500 share stock dividend, on February 8, 2021, we effected a 1.0541667-for-1 common stock split and on February 23, 2021, we effected a 1.0909091-for-1 common stock split, resulting in an aggregate of 8,625,000 shares of Class B common stock outstanding. Our Sponsor transferred shares to its independent director nominees and various other directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Company and Pendrell, in each case for approximately the same per-share price as initially paid by our Sponsor, resulting in our sponsor holding 7,708,852 founder shares. The foregoing issuance was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

On February 26, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 34,500,000 Units, including the issuance of 4,500,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating total gross proceeds of $345,000,000. Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and PJT Partners L acted as joint book-running managers of the Initial Public Offering. The securities in the offering were registered under the Securities Act on a registration statement on Form S-1 (No. 333-252811). The Securities and Exchange Commission declared the registration statement effective on February 23, 2021.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of 5,933,333 Private Placement Warrants to our Sponsor at a price of $1.50 per warrant, generating gross proceeds of $8.9 million. The issuance was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants are not transferable, assignable or salable until after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions.

 

Use of Proceeds

 

Following the Initial Public Offering, the full exercise of the Over-Allotment Option and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, a total of $345.0 million was placed in the Trust Account and we had $2.0 million of cash held outside of the Trust Account, after payment of costs related to the Initial Public Offering, and available for working capital purposes.

 

We paid a total of $6.7 million in underwriting fees and incurred $0.3 million for other costs and expenses related to the Initial Public Offering and the full exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. In addition, the underwriters agreed to defer up to $11.8 million in underwriting fees.
