4. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares

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 June 30, 2018. 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.

Private Placement

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. The Founders also purchased from the Company an aggregate of 8,756 private placement units in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the completion of the second closing of the Offering with the exercise of the over-allotment option. 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 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. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company incurred $60,000 in fees for these Services, of which $0 is included in accounts payable in the accompanying condensed balance sheet as of June 30, 2018.

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.
