Founder Shares


On October 16, 2020, the Sponsor purchased 21,562,500 shares of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate price of $25,000. The Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to 2,812,500 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters, so that the Founder Shares would represent 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering. The underwriter exercised its over-allotment option in full on February 9, 2021; thus, these 2,812,500 Founder Shares are no longer subject to forfeiture.


The initial stockholders agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (B) subsequent to the initial Business Combination, (x) if the last reported sale price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.


Related Party Loans


On October 16, 2020, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). This loan was non-interest bearing and payable upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Company borrowed approximately $266,000 under the Note and repaid the Note in full upon consummation of the Initial Public Offering.


In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). On April 6, 2021, the Company entered into a Loan Note Instrument (the “Loan Note” or “Promissory Note – related party”) with the Sponsor, pursuant to which, the Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, may loan to the Company up to $1,500,000 for costs reasonably related to the Company’s consummation of an initial business combination. The Loan Note does not bear any interest. The Loan Note is payable on the earliest to occur of (i) the date on which the Company consummates its initial business combination and (ii) the date that the winding up of the Company is effective. The Loan Note is subject to customary events if default, including failure by the Company to pay the principal amount due pursuant to the Loan Note within five business days of the Maturity Date and certain bankruptcy events of the Company.


At the Sponsor’s option, at any time prior to payment in full of the principal balance of the Loan Note, the Sponsor may elect to convert all or any portion of the unpaid principal balance of the Loan Note into that number of warrants, each whole warrant exercisable for one share of common stock of the Company (the “Conversion Warrants”), equal to: (x) the portion of the principal amount of the Loan Note being converted, divided by (y) $1.50, rounded up to the nearest whole number of warrants. The Conversion Warrants shall be identical to the warrants issued by the Company to the Sponsor in a private placement upon consummation of the Company’s initial public offering. The Conversion Warrants are subject to customary registration rights granted by the Company to the Sponsor pursuant to the Loan Note. As of September 30, 2021, $1.5 million was drawn on the Promissory Note – related party, presented at its fair value of $1.4 million on the accompanying unaudited condensed balance sheets. There were no Working Capital Loans outstanding as of December 31, 2020.
