NOTE 7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Risks and Uncertainties
Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic 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 ability to successfully complete a business combination, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these consolidated financial statements. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
Registration and Stockholder Rights
Pursuant to a registration and stockholder rights agreement entered into on September 9, 2020, the holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (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 the Working Capital Loans and upon conversion of the Founder Shares) are entitled to registration rights, requiring the Company to register such securities for resale (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion to shares of Class A common stock). The holders of these securities will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders will have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination and rights to require the Company to register for resale such securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. However, the registration and stockholder rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable lock-up period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
The Company granted the underwriter a 45-day option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. The underwriter’s elected to partially exercise the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,421,570 Units. The remaining 1,078,430 Units expired unexercised on October 24, 2020.
Termination of Proposed QOMPLX Business Combination
On March 1, 2021, the Company entered into a Business Combination Agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”), by and among the Company, Merger Sub, QOMPLX, Inc. (“QOMPLX”) and Rationem, LLC a Delaware limited liability company, in its capacity as the representative of the stockholders of QOMPLX (the “QOMPLX Stockholder Representative”) (such transactions, the “QOMPLX Business Combination”). On August 17, 2021, the Company and QOMPLX entered into a Termination Agreement, pursuant to which they terminated the Business Combination Agreement in a mutual decision not to pursue the QOMPLX Business Combination. On August 23, 2021, the Company withdrew the registration statement on Form S-4 initially filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 25, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”).
The underwriter is entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $11,697,550 in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriter 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.
