On July 2, 2021, the Company consummated the IPO of 5,000,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, $0.0001 par value (“Common Stock”), and one right (“Right”) to receive one-tenth (1/10) of a share of common stock upon the consummation of an initial business combination. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $50,000,000. The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 750,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any.
As of July 2, 2021, a total of $50,000,000 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 shareholders. An audited balance sheet as of July 2, 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 Mountain Crest Holdings IV LLC of 195,000 units (the “Private Units”), generating total proceeds of $1,950,000. The Company also issued 160,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Representative Shares”) to Network 1 Financial Securities Inc., as the representative of the underwriters of the IPO.
The Private Units are identical to the Units sold as part of the public Units in this offering. 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 and the Representative Shares 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 June 29, 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.
