Note 5 - Commitments and Contingencies
Forward Purchase Agreement
In connection with the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”) with an affiliate of the Sponsor, pursuant to which such affiliate will commit that it will purchase from us up to 7,500,000 forward purchase units the “Forward Purchase Units”), consisting of one Class A ordinary share (the “Forward Purchase Share”), and
one-fourth
of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share (the “Forward Purchase Warrant”), for $10.00 per Forward Purchase Unit, or an aggregate amount of up to $75.0 million, in a private placement that will close concurrently with the closing of the initial Business Combination. The proceeds from the sale of these Forward Purchase Units, together with the amounts available to the Company from the Trust Account (after giving effect to any redemptions of Public Shares) and any other equity or debt financing obtained by the Company in connection with the Business Combination, will be used to satisfy the cash requirements of the Business Combination, including funding the purchase price and paying expenses and retaining specified amounts to be used by the post-Business Combination company for working capital or other purposes. To the extent that the amounts available from the Trust Account and other financing are sufficient for such cash requirements, the affiliate of the Sponsor may purchase less than 7,500,000 Forward Purchase Units. In addition, such affiliate’s commitment under the Forward Purchase Agreement will be subject to approval of its investment committee as well as customary closing conditions under the Forward Purchase Agreement.
The Forward Purchase Shares will be identical to the Public Shares, except that they will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination and will be subject to registration rights. The Forward Purchase Warrants will have the same terms as the Private Placement Warrants so long as they are held by the affiliate of the Sponsor or its permitted assignees and transferees.
Registration and Shareholder Rights
The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, forward purchase securities underlying the Forward Purchase Units, and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants, Forward Purchase Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) were entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement signed upon the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities were entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company registers such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
 
Underwriting Agreement
The Company granted the underwriters a
45-day
option from the date of this prospectus to purchase up to 4,125,000 additional Units at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On February 25, 2021, the underwriter fully exercised its over-allotment option.
The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $6.3 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per unit, or approximately $11.1 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters 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.
