Item 8.01 Other Events.
On March 15, 2021, Pine Technology Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 34,500,000 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 4,500,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ full exercise of their over-allotment option. Each Unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), and one-third of one warrant of the Company (the “Warrants”), each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one whole share of Class A Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment as provided in the Company’s registration statement on Form S-1, initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 19, 2021 (File No. 333-253278). The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $345,000,000.
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 5,933,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, to the Company’s sponsor, Pine Technology Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds to the Company of $8,899,999.50. The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the warrants sold as part of the Units in the IPO, except that the Sponsor has agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Private Placement Warrants (except to certain permitted transferees) until 30 days after the completion of the Company’s initial business combination. The Private Placement Warrants are also not redeemable by the Company so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees.
A total of $345,000,000 was placed in a U.S.-based trust account with 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, the proceeds from the IPO will not be released from the trust account until the earliest of (i) the completion of the Company’s initial business combination, (ii) the redemption of any public shares properly tendered in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation to modify the substance or timing of its obligation to redeem 100% of its public shares if the Company does not complete its initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO, and (iii) the redemption of all of the Company’s public shares if it is unable to complete its business combination within 24 months 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 March 10, 2021, between the Company and Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., as representative of the underwriters.|
|●||A Warrant Agreement, dated March 10, 2021 between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent.|
|●||Letter Agreement, dated March 10, 2021, between the Company and each of its officers and directors and the Sponsor.|

|●||A Registration Rights Agreement, dated March 10, 2021, among the Company and certain other security holders named therein.|
|●||A Private Placement Warrant Purchase Agreement, dated March 10, 2021, between the Company and the Sponsor.|
|●||Indemnity Agreements, dated March 10, 2021, between the Company and each of its officers and directors.|
|●||An Administrative Services Agreement, dated March 10, 2021, between the Company and an affiliate of the Sponsor.|
The Company also adopted the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation on March 10, 2021, which both restates and amends the provisions of the original certificate of incorporation of the Company.
