NOTE 7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on March 13, 2018, the holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Units (and their underlying securities) and any Units that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans (and their underlying securities) are entitled to registration rights. The holders of a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to two demands that the Company register such securities. The holders of the majority of the Founder Shares can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time commencing three months prior to the date on which these shares of common stock are to be released from escrow. The holders of a majority of the Private Placement Units or Units issued to the Sponsor, officers, directors or their affiliates in payment of Working Capital Loans made to the Company (in each case, including the underlying securities) can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time after the Company consummates a Business Combination. In addition, the holders will have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Business Combination Marketing Agreement
The Company has engaged EarlyBirdCapital, Inc., the representative of the underwriters in the Initial Public Offering (“EarlyBirdCapital”), as an advisor in connection with a Business Combination to assist the Company in holding meetings with its stockholders to discuss a potential Business Combination and the target business’ attributes, introduce the Company to potential investors that are interested in purchasing securities in connection with the Business Combination, assist the Company in obtaining stockholder approval for the Business Combination and assist the Company with its press releases and public filings in connection with a Business Combination. The Company will pay EarlyBirdCapital a cash fee of $4,025,000 for such services upon the consummation of a Business Combination (exclusive of any applicable finders’ fees which might become payable).
Forward Purchase Agreement
Lion Point has entered into a contingent forward purchase agreement with the Company to purchase, in a private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $30,000,000, to occur concurrently with the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination, 3,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit, on substantially the same terms as the sale of Units in the Initial Public Offering. The funds from the sale of these units may be used as part of the consideration to the sellers in the initial Business Combination; any excess funds may be used for the working capital needs of the post-transaction company. This agreement is independent of the percentage of stockholders electing to redeem their Public Shares and may provide the Company with an increased minimum funding level for the initial Business Combination. The contingent forward purchase agreement is subject to conditions, including Lion Point giving the Company its irrevocable written consent to purchase the units no later than five days after the Company notifies Lion Point of the Company’s intention to meet to consider entering into a definitive agreement for a proposed Business Combination. Lion Point granting its consent to the purchase is entirely within its sole discretion. Accordingly, if it does not consent to the purchase, it will not be obligated to purchase the units.
