4. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
During the period from October 9, 2017 (date of inception) to December 12, 2017, the Founders purchased 4,267,500 shares of common stock (the “Founder Shares”) for $25,000, or approximately $0.005858 per share. In November and December 2017, the Company canceled 738,750 Founders Shares for no consideration. As a result, there are 3,528,750 Founder Shares outstanding as of December 31, 2017 of which 468,750 Founder Shares were subject to forfeiture to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters so that the initial stockholders would continue to own 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Offering. As a result of the underwriters’ election to fully exercise their over-allotment option on January 9, 2018, the 468,750 Founder Shares were no longer subject to forfeiture. The Founder Shares are identical to the common stock included in the Units sold in the Offering except that the Founder Shares are subject to certain transfer restrictions, as described in more detail below.
The Founders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier of (i) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination, or earlier if, subsequent to the initial Business Combination, the last sale price of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination or (ii) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after the initial Business Combination that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.
The Founders purchased from the Company an aggregate of 489,500 units at a price of $10.00 per unit in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the completion of the initial closing of the Offering. Each Private Placement Unit consists of one share of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value, three-fourths (3⁄4) of a Warrant, and one right to receive one-tenth (1/10) of a share of common stock upon the consummation of the initial Business Combination. Warrants will only be exercisable for whole shares at $11.50 per share. Unlike the Warrants included in the Units sold in the Offering, if held by the original holder or its permitted transferees, the warrants included in the Private Placement Units are not redeemable by the Company and subject to certain limited exceptions, will be subject to transfer restrictions until one year following the consummation of the Business Combination. If the warrants included in the Private Placement Units are held by holders other than the initial holders or their permitted transferees, the warrants included in the Private Placement Units will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by holders on the same basis as the Warrants included in the Offering (see above).
If the Company does not complete a Business Combination, then the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Units will be part of the liquidating distribution to the public stockholders.
Administrative Services Agreement
The Company agreed to pay $20,000 a month for office space, administrative services and secretarial support to the Sponsor. Services commenced on December 8, 2017, the date the securities were first listed on the New York Stock Exchange and will terminate upon the earlier of the consummation by the Company of the Business Combination or the liquidation of the Company.
Related Party Loans
The Company entered into a promissory note agreement with the Sponsor, whereby the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company up to an aggregate amount not to exceed $55,000 (“Promissory Notes”) to be used for the payment of expenses related to the Offering. The Promissory Notes were non-interest bearing, unsecured and were due on the earlier of (i) December 31, 2017 or (ii) December 12, 2017, the date on which the Company completed the Offering. The Promissory Notes were repaid in December 2017 and therefore there was no remaining balance outstanding as of December 31, 2017.
The entire disclosure for related party transactions. Examples of related party transactions include transactions between (a) a parent company and its subsidiary; (b) subsidiaries of a common parent; (c) and entity and its principal owners; and (d) affiliates.
