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). On March 20, 2018, as a result of the underwriters' election to exercise their over-allotment option in full, 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.



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. During each of three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred $30,000 in fees for these services. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred $90,000 and $65,000 in fees for these services, respectively. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, $185,000 and $95,000, respectively, are included in accounts payable and accrued expenses in the accompanying condensed balance sheets.


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.


On September 16, 2019, the Company's stockholders agreed to extend the period of time the Company has to consummate a Business Combination to November 15, 2019 and Lion Point agreed to loan the Company the funds necessary to obtain the Extension. On September 18, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note (the "Note") in the aggregate principal amount of $306,935 to provide the Company the funds necessary to obtain the Extension. The Note is non-interest bearing and due to be paid upon the consummation of a Business Combination. The loans will be forgiven if the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination except to the extent of any funds held outside of the Trust Account. As of September 30, 2019, the outstanding balance under the Note amounted to an aggregate of $306,935.
