Note 4—Related Party Transactions
Founder Shares
On September 10, 2020, the Sponsor paid $25,000 to cover certain costs of the Company in consideration of 10,062,500 Class B ordinary shares, par value $0.0001, (the “Founder Shares”). On November 18, 2020, the Sponsor transferred an aggregate of 125,000 Founder Shares to the Company’s independent directors. The Sponsor has agreed to forfeit up to 1,312,500 Founder Shares to the extent that the Over-Allotment Option is not exercised in full by the underwriters, so that the Founder Shares will represent 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares (excluding the Private Placement Warrants) after the Initial Public Offering. On November 24, 2020, the Underwriters fully exercised the Over-Allotment Option to purchase the Over-Allotment Units and on November 27, 2020, the Company completed the sale of the Over-Allotment Units to Underwriters in full; thus, these 1,312,500 Class B ordinary shares are no longer subject to forfeiture.
The initial shareholders agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (B) subsequent to the initial Business Combination, (x) if the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, 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 (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Public Shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.
Private Placement Warrants
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the Private Placement of 6,000,000 Private Placement Warrants, each exercisable to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $9.0 million. A portion of the proceeds from the Private Placement Warrants was added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. In connection with the underwriters’ full exercise of its Over-Allotment Option, the Company also consummated the sale of an additional 700,000 Private Placement Warrants at $1.50 per warrant, generating total proceeds of approximately $1.1 million (see Note 6).
The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Private Placement Shares until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination.
Related Party Loans
On September 10, 2020, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). This loan was
non-interest
bearing and payable upon the earlier of March 31, 2021, or the completion of the Initial Public Offering. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had borrowed approximately $61,000 under the Note. Subsequent to September 30, 2020, the Company’s liquidity needs were satisfied with an additional loan of approximately $66,000 from the Sponsor, for a total amount of approximately $127,000 under the Note. The Company repaid the Note in full on
December 11, 2020.
Furthermore, on January 15, 2021, the Company entered into a convertible promissory note with Sponsor pursuant to which Sponsor agreed to loan the Company up to an aggregate principal amount of $750,000 (the “Promissory Note”). The Promissory Note is
non-interest
bearing and due on the earlier of: (i) November 23, 2022 or (ii) the effective date of a Business Combination. Up to $750,000 of the Promissory Note may be converted into warrants to purchase Class A ordinary shares at a conversion price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of Sponsor. If Sponsor elects such conversion, the terms of the warrants issued in connection with such conversion would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.
In order to
 finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company may repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans may be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. 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. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1.5 million of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into shares of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant. Such warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. The Company has no borrowings outstanding under this agreement to date.
Administrative Support Agreement
Commencing on the date that the Company’s securities were first listed on the New York Stock Exchange through the earlier of consummation of the initial Business Combination and the Company’s liquidation, the Company began to reimburse the Sponsor for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to the Company in the amount of $10,000 per month. Upon completion of the initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. The Company incurred approximately $14,000 in expenses in connection with such services during the period from September 7, 2020 (inception) through December 31, 2020 as reflected in the accompanying statement of operations. As of December 31, 2020, $14,000 was due to Sponsor under this agreement.
Forward Purchase Arrangement
On November 18, 2020, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement with an affiliate of the Sponsor, pursuant to which such affiliate has committed to purchase up to 25,000,000 of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares for $10 per share, or an aggregate amount of up to $250 million, in a private placement that would occur concurrently with the consummation of the initial Business Combination. To the extent that the amounts available from the Trust Account and other financings are sufficient to satisfy the cash requirements related to consummation of the initial Business Combination, the Sponsor’s affiliate may, in its discretion, purchase less than 25,000,000 of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares. Furthermore, the Company is not under any obligation to sell any such shares.
