On March 5, 2021, the Company consummated the IPO of 11,500,000 units (the “Units”), including 1,500,000 issued upon the exercise in full by the underwriters of the over-allotment option. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, $0.0001 par value (“Common Stock”), and one-quarter of one warrant (“Warrant”) entitling the holder of each whole Warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per whole share. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $115,000,000.
As of March 5, 2021, a total of $115,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement (as defined below) were deposited in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders. An audited balance sheet as of March 5, 2021 reflecting receipt of the proceeds upon consummation of the IPO and the Private Placement will be filed within 4 business days of the consummation of the IPO.
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) with initial stockholders of the Company of 408,000 units (the “Private Units”), generating total proceeds of $4,080,000.
The Private Units are identical to the Units sold as part of the public Units in this offering except that the Warrants underlying the Private Units will be non-redeemable and may be exercised on a cashless basis, in each case so long as they continue to be held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees.. Additionally, such initial purchasers agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Private Units or underlying securities (except in limited circumstances, as described in the Registration Statement) until the completion of the Company’s initial business combination. Such initial purchasers were granted certain demand and piggyback registration rights in connection with the purchase of the Private Units.
The Private Units were issued pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as the transactions did not involve a public offering.
Item 5.03. Amendments to Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On March 2, 2021, in connection with the IPO, the Company filed its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State. The terms of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation are set forth in the Registration Statement and are incorporated herein by reference.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
