Sponsor and the Issuer (the “Securities Subscription Agreement”), as more fully described in Item 6 of this Schedule 13D, which information is incorporated herein by reference. As described in the Issuer’s registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-231881) under the heading “Description of Securities—Founder Shares,” the shares of Class B common stock will automatically convert into shares of Class A Common Stock at the time of the Issuer’s initial business combination, or earlier at the option of the holder, on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like, and certain anti-dilution rights and have no expiration date.

In connection with the organization of the Issuer, 6,468,750 shares of Class B common stock (after giving effect to a 1.125-for-1 stock split that took effect on June 19, 2019) were purchased by the Sponsor for the amount of $25,000, pursuant to the Securities Subscription Agreement. Under the Securities Subscription Agreement, up to 218,750 Founder Shares remain subject to forfeiture to the extent that the underwriter of the Issuer’s initial public offering does not exercise its overallotment option in full.

The description of the Securities Subscription Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which is filed as an exhibit hereto.

Registration Rights Agreement

On June 19, 2019, in connection with the Issuer’s initial public offering, the Issuer, the Sponsor and the Management Company entered into a registration rights agreement, pursuant to which the Holders (as defined therein) are entitled to request that the Issuer register certain of its securities held by them for sale under the Securities Act and to have the securities covered thereby registered for resale pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. In addition, the holders have the right to include their securities in other registration statements filed by the Issuer. The summary of such registration rights agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which is filed as an exhibit hereto.

Insider Letter

On June 19, 2019, the Issuer entered into a letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with the Sponsor and the Issuer’s directors and officers. Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor has agreed that if the Issuer seeks stockholder approval of a proposed business combination it will vote all shares held by it in favor of such proposed business combination.

Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor has agreed not to transfer any Founder Shares (or shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof) until one year after the completion of the Issuer’s initial business combination or earlier if, subsequent to such business combination, (x) if the last sale price of the 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-
 
 

 
CUSIP No. 838884203
SCHEDULE 13D

trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Issuer’s initial business combination or (y) the Issuer consummates a subsequent liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the Issuer’s stockholders having the right to exchange their Common Stock for cash, securities or other property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Letter Agreement provides exceptions pursuant to which the Sponsor can transfer such shares to certain permitted transferees as further described in the Letter Agreement. Under the Letter Agreement, neither the Private Placement Warrants nor the shares underlying such warrants may be transferred (except to certain permitted transferees) until 30 days after the consummation of the initial business combination.

Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor has also agreed not to propose any amendment to the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation that would modify the substance or timing of the Issuer’s obligation to redeem the public shares if the Issuer does not complete an initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO. Under the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor also agreed it will not propose any amendment to the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation that would affect the substance or timing of the Issuer’s obligation to redeem the shares of Common Stock underlying the units sold in the Issuer’s IPO if the Issuer does not complete a business combination within 24 months from the closing of its initial public offering unless the Issuer provides its public stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their shares upon approval of any such amendment.

Under the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor agreed to waive, with respect to any shares of the Common Stock held by it, any redemption rights it may have in connection with the consummation of a business transaction, including, without limitation, any such rights available in the context of a stockholder vote to approve such business transaction or in the context of a tender offer made by the Issuer to purchase shares of the Common Stock.

The Sponsor also agreed that in the event of the liquidation of the Trust Account of the Issuer (as defined in the Letter Agreement), it will indemnify and hold harmless the Issuer against any and all loss, liability, claims, damage and expense whatsoever which the Issuer may become subject as a result of any claim by any third party for services rendered or products sold to the Issuer, or by any prospective target business with which the Issuer has entered into a letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement for a business combination, but only to the extent necessary to ensure that such loss, liability, claim, damage or expense does not reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below (i) $10.00 per public share or (ii) such lesser amount per public share held in the trust account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, due to reductions in value of the trust assets, in each case net of the amount of interest which may be withdrawn to pay taxes; provided that such indemnity shall not apply if such third party or prospective target business executes an agreement waiving any claims against the Trust Account.

The description of the Letter Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which was filed as an exhibit hereto.
