Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On July 20, 2021, Bilander Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 15,000,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant of the Company (“Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for $11.50 per share. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $150,000,000.

 

In connection with the IPO, the Company entered into the following agreements, forms of which were previously filed as exhibits to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-253419) related to the IPO, originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on February 23, 2021 (as amended, the “Registration Statement”):

 

 An Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”), dated July 15, 2021 by and among the Company and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., and Evercore Group L.L.C., as representatives of the several underwriters, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

 A Warrant Agreement, dated July 15, 2021, by and between the Company and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”), as warrant agent, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 4.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

 A Letter Agreement, dated July 15, 2021, by and among the Company, its officers, its directors and the Company’s sponsor, Bilander Holdings, LLC (the “Sponsor”), a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

 An Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated July 15, 2021, by and between the Company and AST, as trustee, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

 A Registration Rights Agreement, dated July 15, 2021, by and among the Company and certain securities holders, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.3 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

 

 

 A Private Placement Warrants Purchase Agreement (the “Private Placement Warrants Purchase Agreement”), dated July 15, 2021, by and between the Company and the Sponsor, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.4 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

  

 

On July 15, 2021 the Company entered into certain Forward Purchase Agreements, the form of which was previously filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Registration Statement on July 6, 2021, with several institutional accredited investors, that will provide for the aggregate purchase of at least $50,000,000 of Class A Common Stock at $10.00 per share, in a private placement that will close concurrently with the closing of the Company’s initial business combination.

 

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, pursuant to the Private Placement Warrants Purchase Agreement, the Company completed the private sale of an aggregate of 3,500,000 Warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to the Sponsor at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $5,250,000. The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Warrants sold as part of the Units in the IPO, except as otherwise disclosed in the Registration Statement. No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sale. The issuance of the Private Placement Warrants was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

 

Item 5.03. Amendments to Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

On July 16, 2021 in connection with the IPO, the Company filed its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, effective the same day. The terms of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation are set forth in the Registration Statement and are incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation is attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

A total of $150,000,000, comprised of $147,000,000 of the proceeds from the IPO (which amount included $5,250,000 of the underwriters’ deferred discount) and $3,000,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account maintained by AST, acting as trustee. Except with respect to interest earned on the funds held in the trust account that may be released to the Company to fund for working capital requirements, subject to an annual limit of $500,000, and pay its taxes (less up to $100,000 interest to pay dissolution expenses), the funds held in the trust account 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 of the Company’s public shares properly submitted in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (a) to modify the substance or timing of its obligation to redeem 100% of the Company’s public shares if it does not complete its initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO (or 27 months from the closing of the IPO if the Company has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for an initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO) or (b) with respect to any other material provisions relating to rights of holders of Class A Common Stock prior to the Company’s initial business combination or pre-initial business combination business activity and (iii) the redemption of the Company’s public shares if it is unable to complete its initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO (or 27 months from the closing of the IPO if the Company has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for an initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO), subject to applicable law.
