Related Party Transactions [Abstract]  



Founder Shares


In November 2017, the Company issued an aggregate of 2,875,000 shares of common stock (“Founder Shares”) to Axis Public Ventures for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000. On March 9, 2018, Axis Public Ventures transferred 2,012,500 Founder Shares to the other Initial Stockholders for the same price originally paid for such shares. The Founder Shares included an aggregate of up to 375,000 shares subject to forfeiture by the Initial Stockholders to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment was not exercised in full or in part, so that the Initial Stockholders would own 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering (assuming the Initial Stockholders did not purchase any Public Shares in the Proposed Offering and excluding the Placement Shares). As a result of the underwriters’ election to exercise their over-allotment option in full on March 20, 2018, 375,000 Founder’s Shares are no longer subject to forfeiture.


The Initial Stockholders have agreed that, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned or sold until the earlier of six months after the date of the consummation of a Business Combination and the date on which the closing price of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $12.50 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing after the Business Combination, or earlier if, subsequent to a Business Combination, the Company consummates a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.


Related Party Advances


During the period ended September 30, 2018, the Company received an aggregate of $67,013 in advances from an affiliate of the Sponsor for costs associated with the Initial Public Offering. The advances were non-interest bearing, unsecured and due on demand. The Company repaid the advances in full, and accordingly, as of September 30, 2018, there were no advances outstanding.


Promissory Note – Related Party


On August 1, 2017, the Company issued to an affiliate of the Sponsor an unsecured promissory note, pursuant to which the Company borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $122,839 (the “Promissory Note”). The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and payable on the earlier to occur of (i) December 31, 2018, (ii) the consummation of the Initial Public Offering or (iii) the date on which the Company determined not to proceed with the Initial Public Offering. The Promissory Note was repaid at the closing of the Initial Public Offering.


Administrative Services Agreement


The Company entered into an agreement whereby, commencing on March 13, 2018 through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and administrative support. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company incurred $30,000 and $65,000, respectively, in fees for these services, which such amount is included in operating costs in the accompanying condensed statements of operations and of which $65,000 is included in accrued expenses in the accompanying condensed balance sheet at September 30, 2018.


Related Party Loans


In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, an affiliate of the Sponsor, or the Company’s officers, directors and other Initial Stockholders may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds from time to time or at any time, as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). Each Working Capital Loan would be evidenced by a promissory note. The Working Capital Loans would either be paid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the holder’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of the Working Capital Loans may be converted into units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units would be identical to the Private Placement Units. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans.
