(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION, BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND GOING CONCERN

 

SDCL EDGE Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on February 16, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”). The Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination. The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

 

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from February 16, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2023 relates to the Company’s formation, the initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”) as described below, and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of a Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate non-operating income or loss in the form of interest income or gains (losses) on investments on the cash and investments held in a trust account from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the Company will recognize non-operating income or loss on the change in fair value of the warrant liabilities.

 

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on October 28, 2021. On November 2, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 17,500,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units sold, the “Public Shares”), at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $175,000,000, which is discussed in Note 3. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-half of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”).

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 8,250,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to SDCL EDGE Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), Sustainable Investors Fund, LP (“Capricorn”), and Seaside Holdings (Nominee) Limited (“Seaside” and, together with Capricorn, the “A Anchor Investors”) generating gross proceeds of $8,250,000, which is described in Note 4.

 

The Company had granted the underwriters in the Initial Public Offering (the “Underwriters”) a 45-day option to purchase up to 2,625,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any. On November 16, 2021, the Underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 2,495,246 Units (the “Over-Allotment Units”), generating gross proceeds of $24,952,460, and incurred $499,049 in cash underwriting fees.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 748,574 warrants (the “Over-Allotment Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors generating gross proceeds of $748,574.

 

Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, the sale of the Over-Allotment Units, and the sale of the Over-Allotment Warrants, an amount of $201,951,985 ($10.10 per Unit) was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) and was invested in U.S. government treasury obligations with maturities of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of the initial Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of any Public Shares properly tendered in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete the initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering; and (iii) absent an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering or with respect to any other material provisions relating to shareholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity, the return of the funds held in the Trust Account to the Public Shareholders as part of the redemption of the Public Shares. If the Company does not invest the proceeds as discussed above, the Company may be deemed to be subject to the Investment Company Act. If the Company is deemed to be subject to the Investment Company Act, compliance with these additional regulatory burdens would require additional expenses for which the Company has not allotted funds and may hinder the Company’s ability to complete a Business Combination. If the Company is unable to complete the initial Business Combination, the Company’s public shareholders may only receive their pro rata portion of the funds in the Trust Account that are available for distribution to public shareholders, and the warrants will expire worthless.

(UNAUDITED)

 

In addition, the Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to 656,250 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”) to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters. As a result of the underwriters’ partial exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company repurchased and cancelled 32,439 Founders Shares. No other Founder Shares remain subject to forfeiture.

 

The Company will provide its public shareholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a shareholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, in its sole discretion. The public shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount held in the Trust Account ($10.60 per share as of September 30, 2023), calculated as of two business days prior to the completion of a Business Combination, including any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations. There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Class A ordinary shares are recorded at redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”).

 

The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon consummation of such Business Combination and a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required under applicable law or stock exchange listing requirements and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association as then in effect, conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and file tender offer documents containing substantially the same information as would be included in a proxy statement with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the initial shareholders, Anchor Investors (as defined in Note 5), and management team have agreed to vote any Founder Shares held by them, and any Public Shares purchased in or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of approving a Business Combination. Additionally, each public shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction or whether they were a public shareholder on the record date for the general meeting held to approve the proposed transaction.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company seeks shareholder approval of a Business Combination and it does not conduct redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that a public shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% of the Public Shares without the Company’s prior written consent.

 

The initial shareholders and A Anchor Investors have agreed to (i) waive their redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares and Public Shares they hold in connection with the completion of an initial Business Combination, (ii) waive their redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares and Public Shares they hold in connection with a shareholder vote to approve an amendment to the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company has not consummated an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering or with respect to any other material provisions relating to shareholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity and (iii) waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares they hold if the Company fails to complete an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the Initial Public Offering. However, if the initial shareholders or Anchor Investors (as defined in Note 5) acquire additional Public Shares after the Initial Public Offering, such Public Shares will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below).

The Company will have until July 2, 2024 to complete a Business Combination. (See Note 10). If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account (which interest shall be net of taxes payable and up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining shareholders and board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject, in each case, to the Company’s obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. Upon the approval of the Extension Proposal (as defined in Note 10), the Company entered into a funding undertaking and promissory note agreement (each a “Funding Agreement” and together, the “Funding Agreements”) with each of the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors pursuant to which each of the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors agreed, severally and not jointly, that for each month, or pro rata portion thereof if less than a month, until the earlier of (i) the date of the extraordinary general meeting held in connection with the shareholder vote to approve an initial business combination and (ii) July 2, 2024 (or any earlier date of termination, dissolution or winding up of the Company as determined in the sole discretion of the Company’s board of directors), the Sponsor and each of the A Anchor Investors will make, in aggregate, extension deposits of $0.025 into the Trust Account for each remaining public share, up to a total of $250,000 per month.

 

In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below (1) $10.10 per Public Share or (2) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account if less than $10.10 per Public Share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, in each case net of the interest that may be withdrawn to pay the Company’s tax obligations, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims by a third-party or prospective target business that executed a waiver of any and all rights to seek access to the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) nor will it apply to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (other than the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

On August 21, 2023, the Company signed a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Magnet Joint Venture GmbH (“JV GmbH”), KME SE (“KME”) and The Paragon Fund III GmbH & Co. geschlossene Investment KG (“Paragon”), for a proposed business combination (the “Business Combination”) relating to the special product business of Cunova GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of JV GmbH (“Cunova”) and certain assets of KME comprising the KME Specialty Aerospace Business (“KME Aerospace” and, together with Cunova, the “Target”).

 

The completion of the Business Combination is subject to, among other things, the completion of due diligence, the negotiation of definitive agreements for the Business Combination (the “Definitive Agreements”), satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein, approval of the transaction by the board and shareholders of both the Company and Target, as well as regulatory approvals and other customary conditions. There can be no assurance that Definitive Agreements will be entered into or that the Business Combination will be consummated on the terms or timeframe currently contemplated, or at all.

 

NYSE Continued Listing Standards Compliance Notification

 

On January 12, 2023, the Company received a notice from NYSE that the Company was not in compliance with NYSE listing standard 802.01B because the Company had fallen below compliance with the 300 public shareholders requirement. In accordance with the NYSE listing requirements, the Company submitted a plan that demonstrated how it expected to return to compliance with NYSE listing standard 802.01B. On August 23, 2023, NYSE notified the Company that it was again in compliance with NYSE listing standard 802.01B but that the Company was subject to continued monitoring and review for a period of 12 months. While the Company has regained compliance with the continued listing requirements, it may in the future again fail to be in compliance with the NYSE listing standards and it may be subject to corrective action by NYSE, which may include suspension and delisting procedures.

 

Going Concern Consideration

 

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had $49,504 in cash held outside of the Trust Account and a working capital deficit of $4,797,267.

If a Business Combination is not consummated by July 2, 2024, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company.

 

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, management has determined the July 2, 2024 Combination Period deadline raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of twelve months from the date that these unaudited condensed financial statements are filed, if it does not complete a Business Combination prior to such date. These unaudited condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying condensed financial statements of the Company are presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. The accompanying condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on March 30, 2023. The interim results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023 or for any future periods.

 

Emerging Growth Company

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

 

Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period.

 

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of September 30, 2023 or December 31, 2022.

 

Investments Held in Trust Account

 

At September 30, 2023, the assets held in the Trust Account are $212,046,647, and are held in money market funds, which are invested in U.S. Treasury securities. All of the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are classified as trading securities. Such trading securities are presented on the balance sheet at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of investments held in Trust Account are included in net gain on investments held in Trust Account in the accompanying statements of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.

 

At December 31, 2022 the Company held assets in the Trust Account of $204,641,162.

 

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

 

All of the 19,995,246 Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the partial exercise of the over-allotment option contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with the Business Combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in ASC 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Class A ordinary shares has been classified outside of permanent equity.

 

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid-in capital and accumulated deficit. The redemption value of the redeemable ordinary shares as of September 30, 2023 increased as the income earned on the Trust Account exceeds the Company’s expected dissolution expenses (up to $100,000). As such, the Company recorded an increase in the carrying amount of the redeemable ordinary shares of $7,405,484 during the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and $2,589,178 for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Offering Costs associated with the Initial Public Offering

 

The Company complies with the requirements of ASC Topic 340, Other Assets and Deferred Costs and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A - Expenses of Offering (“SAB Topic 5A”). Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs directly attributable to the issuance of an equity contract to be classified in equity are recorded as a reduction in equity. Offering costs for equity contracts that are classified as assets and liabilities are expensed immediately. The Company incurred offering costs amounting to $32,005,743 as a result of the Initial Public Offering (consisting of a $3,999,049 underwriting discount, $6,998,336 of deferred underwriting fees, $18,958,165 of Anchor Investor offering costs, and $2,050,193 of other offering costs). The Company recorded $29,576,119 of offering costs as a reduction of temporary equity in connection with the shares of Class A ordinary shares included in the Units. The Company immediately expensed $2,429,624 of offering costs in connection with the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants that were classified as liabilities.

 

In July and October 2022, the deferred underwriting fee was waived in full by Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC Securities, Inc., and BofA Securities, Inc., the underwriters. Upon IPO, a portion of the entire deferred underwriting fee was allocated to public warrants, which resulted in a charge to the statement of operations. Therefore, a portion of this waived deferred underwriting fee was recorded as a gain in the statements of operations in the amount of $342,975 for the year ended December 31, 2022. The remaining $6,655,361 was recorded as a reduction to accumulated deficit as of December 31, 2022.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized.

SDCL EDGE ACQUISITION CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

 

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. Based on the Company’s evaluation, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s financial statements.

 

The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

 

The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is considered an exempted Cayman Islands Company and is presently not subject to income taxes or income tax filing requirements in the Cayman Islands or the United States. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s financial statements.

 

Net Income Per Ordinary Share

 

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Net income per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. The immediate re-measurement associated with the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from net income per share as the redemption value approximates fair value. Therefore, the net income per share calculation allocates income and losses shared pro rata between Class A and Class B ordinary shares. As a result, the calculated net income per share is the same for Class A and Class B ordinary shares. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering, the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, and private placement to purchase an aggregate of 18,996,197 shares in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted income per share is the same as basic income per share for the periods presented.

 

The following table reflects the calculation of basic and diluted net income per ordinary share (in dollars):

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist of a cash account in a financial institution which, at times may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company applies ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and clarifies the definition of fair value within that framework. ASC 820 defines fair value as an exit price, which is the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the Company’s principal or most advantageous market in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The fair value hierarchy established in ASC 820 generally requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. Observable inputs reflect the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs reflect the entity’s own assumptions based on market data and the entity’s judgments about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are to be developed based on the best information available in the circumstances.

 

The carrying amounts reflected in the balance sheet for current assets and current liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.

 

The following reflects the fair value hierarchy established by ASC 820:

 

Level 1 — Assets and liabilities with unadjusted, quoted prices listed on active market exchanges. Inputs to the fair value measurement are observable inputs, such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are determined using prices for recently traded assets and liabilities with similar underlying terms, as well as direct or indirect observable inputs, such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

 

Level 3 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are unobservable inputs, such as estimates, assumptions, and valuation techniques when little or no market data exists for the assets or liabilities.

 

Share-Based Compensation

 

Share-based compensation is included in operating and formation costs within the condensed statement of operations and accounted for based on the requirements of ASC 718, Compensation–Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”), which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee, non-employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee, non-employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee, non-employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recognized $664,046 of share-based compensation related to 659,844 Founder Shares to be transferred to Sustainable Development Capital LLP for certain services performed per the Investment Advisory Agreement (See Note 5).

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recognized $1,970,483 and $1,963,265, respectively, of share-based compensation related to 659,844 Founder Shares to be transferred to Sustainable Development Capital LLP for certain services performed per the Investment Advisory Agreement (See Note 5).

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with ASC 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging: Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (“ASC 815”). For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value on the grant date and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement or conversion of the instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

The Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants are accounted for as derivative instruments in accordance with ASC 815 and are presented as warrant liabilities on the balance sheet. The Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants were measured at fair value at the Initial Public Offering and on a recurring basis, with subsequent changes in fair value to be recorded in the statement of operations.

 

Recent Accounting Standards

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

 

NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

 

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on October 28, 2021. On November 2, 2021, the Company completed its Initial Public Offering of 17,500,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $175,000,000. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-half of one Public Warrant. Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per whole share (see Note 7). On November 16, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 2,495,246 Over-Allotment Units, generating gross proceeds of $24,952,460, for an aggregate total of $199,952,460 in gross proceeds from the Initial Public Offering and closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option.

 

NOTE 4. PRIVATE PLACEMENT

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor and A Anchor Investors purchased an aggregate of 8,250,000 warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant ($8,250,000 in the aggregate). Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 748,574 Over-Allotment Warrants at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor and A Anchor Investors, generating gross proceeds of $748,574, for an aggregate total of $8,998,574 in gross proceeds from the sale of the Private Warrants and Over-Allotment Warrants. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Founder Shares

 

On February 23, 2021, the Sponsor was issued 7,187,500 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate of $25,000 paid to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company. On July 14, 2021, the Company repurchased 2,156,250 Founder Shares from the Company’s Sponsor for an aggregate consideration of $0.001, resulting in an aggregate of 5,031,250 Founder Shares outstanding. The Founder Shares included an aggregate of up to 656,250 Class B ordinary shares subject to repurchase by the Sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full or in part, so that the holders of the Founder Shares will own, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering. Following the partial exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option on November 16, 2021, 32,439 Founder Shares were repurchased and cancelled by the Company. No other Founder Shares remain subject to forfeiture.

 

The Sponsor has agreed that, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned, or sold until the earlier of (i) one year after the completion of a Business Combination or (ii) subsequent to an initial Business Combination, (x) if the closing price of Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share subdivisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after an initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the public shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.

 

The A Anchor Investors purchased a total of 4,000,000 units in the Initial Public Offering at the offering price of $10.00 per unit. In addition to the A Anchor Investors, two qualified institutional buyers or accredited investors not affiliated with the Company, the Sponsor, the Company’s directors or any member of management (the “3.6% B Anchor Investors”), purchased 1,575,000 units each in the Initial Public Offering at the offering price of $10.00 per unit, three qualified institutional buyers or accredited investors not affiliated with the Company, the Sponsor, the Company’s directors or any member of management (the “4.0% B Anchor Investors”), purchased 1,749,999 units each in the Initial Public Offering at the offering price of $10.00 per unit, and two qualified institutional buyers or accredited investors not affiliated with the Company, the Sponsor, the Company’s directors or any member of management (the “Additional 4.0% B Anchor Investors” and, together with the 3.6% B Anchor Investors and the 4.0% B Anchor Investors, the “B Anchor Investors”), purchased 1,732,500 units each in the Initial Public Offering at the offering price of $10.00 per unit, or an aggregate of 15,864,997 units for all anchor investors (the “Anchor Investors” which includes the A Anchor Investors and the B Anchor Investors).

 

As the Anchor Investors purchased units during the Initial Public Offering, should they vote the shares included therein in favor of the initial Business Combination, no votes from other public shareholders would be required to approve the initial Business Combination. The Anchor Investors may have different interests with respect to a vote on an initial Business Combination than other public shareholders due to their ownership interests in the Company.

 

Pursuant to such units, the Anchor Investors have not been granted any shareholder or other rights in addition to those afforded to the Company’s other public shareholders. Further, the Anchor Investors are not required to (i) hold any units, Class A ordinary shares or warrants they purchased in the Initial Public Offering or thereafter for any amount of time, (ii) vote any Class A ordinary shares they may own at the applicable time in favor of the Business Combination or (iii) refrain from exercising their right to redeem their Public Shares at the time of the Business Combination. The Anchor Investors have the same rights to the funds held in the Trust Account with respect to the Class A ordinary shares underlying the units they purchased in the Initial Public Offering as the rights afforded to the Company’s other public shareholders.

Each Anchor Investor has entered into separate investment agreements with the Company and the Sponsor. The A Anchor Investors purchased 503,125 Founder Shares each, or an aggregate of 1,006,250 Founder Shares, from the Sponsor for a purchase price of $2,500 each, or an aggregate of $5,000, at the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The 3.6% B Anchor Investors purchased 181,125 Founder Shares each, or an aggregate of 362,250 Founder Shares, from the Sponsor for a purchase price of $900 each, or an aggregate of $1,800, at the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The 4.0% B Anchor Investors purchased 201,250 Founder Shares each, or an aggregate of 603,750 Founder Shares, from the Sponsor for a purchase price of $1,000 each, or an aggregate of $3,000, at the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Additional 4.0% B Anchor Investors purchased 201,250 Founder Shares each, or an aggregate of 402,500 Founder Shares from the Sponsor for a purchase price of $1,000 each, or an aggregate of $2,000, at the closing of the Initial Public Offering (or an aggregate of 2,374,750 Founder Shares for all Anchor Investors for a total combined purchase price of $11,800). Pursuant to the investment agreements, the Anchor Investors have agreed to (a) vote any Founder Shares held by them in favor of the Business Combination and (b) subject any Founder Shares held by them to the same lock-up restrictions as the Founder Shares held by the Sponsor and independent directors.

 

Due to the partial exercise of the over-allotment option by the underwriters on November 16, 2021, the Company repurchased and cancelled 32,439 Founder Shares, which included 3,244 Founder Shares from each A Anchor Investor (or an aggregate of 6,488 Founder Shares), 1,168 Founder Shares from each 3.6% B Anchor Investor (or an aggregate of 2,336 Founder Shares), 1,298 Founder Shares from each 4.0% B Anchor Investor, (or an aggregate of 3,894 Founder Shares), 1,298 Founder Shares from each Additional 4.0% B Anchor Investor, (or an aggregate of 2,596 Founder Shares), and 17,125 Founder Shares from the Company’s Sponsor. As a result 15,314 Founder Shares held by Anchor Investors were repurchased and canceled by the Company, resulting in an aggregate of 2,359,436 Founder Shares held by all Anchor Investors.

 

The Company estimated the fair value of the Founder Shares attributable to the Anchor Investors to be $18,969,890 or $8.04 per share. The excess of the fair value of the Founder Shares sold over the purchase price of $11,725 (or $0.005 per share) was determined to be an offering cost in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A. Accordingly, the offering cost was allocated to the separable financial instruments issued in the Initial Public Offering based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received. Offering costs allocated to derivative warrant liabilities were expensed immediately in the statement of operations. Offering costs allocated to the Public Shares were charged to shareholders’ deficit upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering.

 

Due to Sponsor

 

Due to Sponsor consists of advances from the Sponsor to pay for offering costs and formation costs on behalf of the Company and are payable on demand.

 

Administrative Support Agreement

 

On October 28, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $20,000 per month for office space, administrative and support services. The Company will cease paying these monthly fees as of October 28, 2023 (24 months from the start of the agreement) regardless of whether a business combination has been executed or not. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, $60,000 and $180,000 of administrative support expenses were incurred, respectively.

On October 28, 2021, the Company and the Sponsor entered into an agreement with Sustainable Development Capital LLP (the “Advisor”), a London-based investment firm and affiliate of the Company and Sponsor, whereby the Advisor agreed to provide administrative, consulting, and other services to affect the Company’s initial Business Combination. In consideration of the services performed: (1) the Company and Sponsor shall procure the transfer of the legal and beneficial title to at least 659,844 Founder Shares, or at the sole election of the Sponsor, the payment of an amount equal to the cash value (as determined as of the date of such payment) of such number of Founder Shares, to the Advisor immediately prior to the winding up and liquidation of the Sponsor, or such other date as shall be agreed in writing between the Sponsor and Advisor; and (2) the Sponsor shall pay to the Advisor the sum of $20,000 per month as an ongoing advisory fee and subject to the terms and conditions of the Investment Advisory Agreement (the “Advisory Agreement”). The compensation expense related to the above Founder Share transfer of 659,844 shares is amortized on a straight-line basis from the Grant Date of October 28, 2021 (the date at which the Investment Advisory Agreement was signed, and the date at which all parties reached a mutual understanding of the key terms and conditions of the share-based payment) to November 2, 2023 (the original date at which the combination period for the Company’s initial business combination would have expired). Such Advisory Agreement is accounted for under ASC 718.

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, there were no costs incurred for web-based services provided by the Advisor.

 

Related Party Loans

 

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial Business Combination, the Company’s sponsor or an affiliate of the sponsor or certain of the officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required. If the Company completes an initial Business Combination, it may repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. In the event that the initial Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from the Company’s Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants, including as to exercise price, exercisability and exercise period. The terms of such loans by the officers and directors, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Company does not expect to seek loans from parties other than the Company’s sponsor, its affiliates or the management team as the Company does not believe third parties will be willing to loan such funds and provide a waiver against any and all rights to seek access to funds in the Company’s Trust Account. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were no such loans outstanding.

 

On September 8, 2023, the Company entered into a Promissory Note with the Sponsor (“Sponsor Loan”) for up to $1,200,000. Pursuant to the Sponsor Loan, the Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, may fund costs reasonably related to the consummation of an initial Business Combination in response to the Company’s written request for drawdown of loan principal from time to time until the date on which the Company consummates an initial Business Combination. The principal balance of the Sponsor Loan shall be payable on the earliest to occur of (i) the date on which the Company consummates an initial Business Combination and (ii) the date that the winding up is effective. Outstanding loan amounts are convertible, at the Sponsor’s option, into certain warrants with holders entitled to certain specified registration rights under that certain registration rights agreement by and among the Company, Sponsor and certain other investors in the initial public offering of the Company, dated as of October 28, 2021 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Interest does not accrue on the Sponsor Loan. The maturity date of the Sponsor Loan may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined therein). Any outstanding principal under the Sponsor Loan may be prepaid at any time by the Company at its election and without penalty. As of September 30, 2023, the outstanding balance on the Sponsor Loan was $0.

NOTE 6. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to consummation of a Business Combination. The Company bears the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriters Agreement

 

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 2,625,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments. On November 16, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 2,495,246 Units at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating additional gross proceeds of $24,952,460 to the Company.

The underwriters received a cash underwriting discount of $0.20 per Unit, or $3,999,049 in the aggregate, which became payable at the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the underwriters were entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $6,998,336 in the aggregate. In July and October 2022, the deferred underwriting fee was waived in full by Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC Securities, Inc., and BofA Securities, Inc., the underwriters. Upon IPO, a portion of the entire deferred underwriting fee was allocated to public warrants, which resulted in a charge to the statement of operations. Therefore, a portion of this waived deferred underwriting fee was recorded as a gain in the statements of operations in the amount of $342,975 for the year ended December 31, 2022. The remaining $6,655,361 was recorded as a reduction to accumulated deficit as of December 31, 2022.

 

Vendor Agreements

 

Since inception, the Company has engaged a legal firm (the “Legal Advisor”) to provide services related to the Company’s Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination, and the structuring of a transaction. Fees incurred by the Legal Advisor have been recorded as accrued contingent legal costs on the condensed balance sheets. The payment of these fees is contingent upon the consummation of a Business Combination. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had accrued contingent legal costs of $4,522,137 and $2,066,035, respectively.

 

On September 19, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with a financial advisory firm (the “Financial Advisor”) for financial advisory services such as structuring a transaction, assistance in negotiations, guidance on valuation in connection with a transaction, and other customary services in connection with a Business Combination. Pursuant to this agreement, the Company will pay the Financial Advisor a fee of $7,000,000 contingent upon the consummation of a Business Combination. Additionally, upon the consummation of a PIPE transaction, the Company will pay to the Financial Advisor a fee equal to 3.5% of (i) the gross proceeds raised or received by any PIPE issuer and/or its shareholders in the PIPE transaction, plus (ii) any amounts remaining in the Trust Account as of the closing of the Business Combination after giving effect to all redemptions of shares of the Company elected by the shareholders of the Company ((i) and (ii) together, the “Proceeds”) (the “PIPE Transaction Fee”). The PIPE Transaction Fee paid to the Financial Advisor shall not be less than 1.75% of the Proceeds.

 

NOTE 7. WARRANTS

 

A warrant holder may exercise their warrants only for a whole number of Class A ordinary shares. This means only a whole warrant may be exercised at a given time by a warrant holder. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the units and only whole warrants will trade. Accordingly, unless the warrant holder purchases at least two units, they will not be able to receive or trade a whole warrant. The warrants will expire five years after the completion of the initial Business Combination, at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

 

The Company will not be obligated to deliver any Class A ordinary shares pursuant to the exercise of a warrant and will have no obligation to settle such warrant exercise unless a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the Class A ordinary shares underlying the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating thereto is current, subject to satisfying the obligations described below with respect to registration. No warrant will be exercisable and the Company will not be obligated to issue Class A ordinary shares upon exercise of a warrant unless Class A ordinary shares issuable upon such warrant exercise has been registered, qualified or deemed to be exempt under the securities laws of the state of residence of the registered holder of the warrants. In the event that the conditions in the two immediately preceding sentences are not satisfied with respect to a warrant, the holder of such warrant will not be entitled to exercise such warrant and such warrant may have no value and expire worthless. In no event will the Company be required to net cash settle any warrant. In the event that a registration statement is not effective for the exercised warrants, the purchaser of a unit containing such warrant, if not cash settled, will have paid the full purchase price for the unit solely for the Class A ordinary shares underlying such unit.

SDCL EDGE ACQUISITION CORPORATION

(UNAUDITED)

 

The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 15 business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination, the Company will use the commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants, and the Company will use the commercially reasonable efforts to cause the same to become effective within 60 business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares until the warrants expire or are redeemed; provided that if the Class A ordinary shares are at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at the option, require holders of Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and, in the event the Company so elect, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement.

 

Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00. Once the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Public Warrants (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants):

 

in whole and not in part;

 

at a price of $0.01 per warrant;

 

upon a minimum of thirty (30) days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder; and

 

if, and only if, the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for adjustments to the number of shares issuable upon exercise or the exercise price of a warrant from share divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any twenty (20) trading days within a 30-trading day period ending three (3) trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

 

The Company will not redeem the warrants for cash unless a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the shares of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares is available throughout the 30-day redemption period, unless the warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis and such cashless exercise is exempt from registration under the Securities Act. If and when the warrants become redeemable, the Company may exercise the redemption right even if the Company are unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.

 

Redemption of warrants when the price per share of Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00. Commencing ninety days after the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Public Warrants:

 

in whole and not in part;

 

at $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares determined by reference to the table below, based on the redemption date and the fair market value of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares except as otherwise described below;

 

if, and only if, the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00 per Public Share (as adjusted for adjustments to the number of shares issuable upon exercise or the exercise price of a warrant from share divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within the 30-trading day period ending three trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders; and

 

19

 

 

SDCL EDGE ACQUISITION CORPORATION

(UNAUDITED)

 

if the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted for adjustments to the number of shares issuable upon exercise or the exercise price of a warrant from share divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), the private placement warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants, as described above.

 

In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional ordinary shares or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per ordinary share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor, Anchor Investors, or its affiliates, without taking into account any founder shares held by the Sponsor, the Company’s Anchor Investors or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of the initial Business Combination on the date of the completion of the initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the shares of Class A ordinary shares during the 20 trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummate the initial Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $18.00 per share redemption trigger prices described below under “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00” and “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 100% and 180%, respectively, of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.

 

The private placement warrants are identical to the warrants sold as part of the units in the Initial Public Offering except that, so long as they are held by the Sponsor, the A Anchor Investors, or their permitted transferees: (1) they will not be redeemable (except as described above under “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00”); (2) they (including the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of these warrants) may not, subject to certain limited exceptions, be transferred, assigned or sold by the Sponsor until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination, as described below; (3) they may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis; and (4) they (including the ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of these warrants) are entitled to registration rights.

 

The Company accounts for the 18,996,197 warrants that were issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering (9,997,623 Public Warrants and 8,998,574 Private Placement Warrants) in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40. Such guidance provides that because the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, each warrant must be recorded as a liability due to the existence of provisions whereby adjustments to the exercise price of the warrants is based on a variable that is not an input to the fair value of a “fixed-for-fixed” option and the existence of the potential for net cash settlement for the warrant holders (but not all shareholders) in the event of a tender offer.

 

The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record the warrants as derivative liabilities at fair value upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Public Warrants were allocated a portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the Units equal to its fair value. This liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date. With each such re-measurement, the warrant liability will be adjusted to its current fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company will reassess the classification at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the warrants will be reclassified as of the date of the event that causes the reclassification.

The measurement of the Public Warrants as of September 30, 2023 is classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market under the ticker SEDA.WS. The quoted price of the Public Warrants was $0.10 and $0.16 per warrant as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

 

The Company utilizes a Monte Carlo simulation model to value the Private Placement Warrants at each reporting period, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement warrant liability is determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a Monte Carlo Simulation model are assumptions related to expected share-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The Company estimates the volatility of its ordinary shares based on historical volatility that matches the expected remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates to remain at zero.

 

The aforementioned warrant liabilities are not subject to qualified hedge accounting.

 

Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2 and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting period.

 

The following table provides the significant inputs to the Monte Carlo simulation model for the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants:

 

               
    As of
September 30,
2023
    As of
December 31,

Volatility     6.4 %     5.0 %
Risk-free rate     4.50 %     3.91 %
Fair value   $ 0.10     $ 0.16  

 

The following table presents the changes in the fair value of the Company’s Level 3 financial instruments that are measured at fair value:

As a result, $72,546,419.86 will be paid out of the Company’s Trust Account in connection with the redemptions, representing a redemption price per Class A ordinary share of approximately $10.64.

 

Upon the approval of the Extension Proposal, the Company entered into Funding Agreements with each of the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors pursuant to which each of the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors agreed, severally and not jointly, that for each month, or pro rata portion thereof if less than a month, until the earlier of (i) the date of the extraordinary general meeting held in connection with the shareholder vote to approve an initial business combination and (ii) July 2, 2024 (or any earlier date of termination, dissolution or winding up of the Company as determined in the sole discretion of the Company’s board of directors), the Sponsor and each of the A Anchor Investors will make, in aggregate, extension deposits of $0.025 into the Trust Account for each remaining public share, up to a total of $250,000 per month. On November 7, 2023, the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors deposited $250,000 in the aggregate into the Trust Account.

Overview

 

We are a blank check company incorporated on February 16, 2021 as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities (“Business Combination”). On August 21, 2023, we announced that we had executed a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Magnet Joint Venture GmbH (“JV GmbH”), KME SE (“KME”) and The Paragon Fund III GmbH & Co. geschlossene Investment KG (“Paragon”), for a proposed Business Combination (the “Target Business Combination”) with the Target as defined below. For more information about the proposed Target Business Combination, see our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 21, 2023. Unless specifically stated, this Quarterly Report does not give effect to the proposed Target Business Combination and does not contain the risks associated with the proposed Target Business Combination. Such risks and effects relating to the proposed Target Business Combination will be included in our preliminary prospectus/proxy statement to be included in a Registration Statement on Form F-4 that we will file with the SEC relating to the proposed Target Business Combination (the “Target Disclosure Statement”). We intend to effectuate our initial Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of our Initial Public Offering (defined below) and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants (defined below), shares issued to the owners of the target, debt issued to bank or other lenders or the owners of the target, or a combination of the foregoing or other sources.

 

We expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete a Business Combination will be successful.

Results of Operations

 

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities since inception have been organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for our Initial Public Offering, and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our initial Business Combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income or gains (losses) on investments held in a trust account with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee (the “Trust Account”) after the Initial Public Offering. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2023, we had net income of $234,285, which was a result of a gain on the investments held in the Trust Account of $2,744,075, which was offset by operating and formation costs of $2,509,790.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2022, we had net income of $2,181,843, which was a result of a gain in the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $2,279,544, a gain on the investments held in the Trust Account of $851,036 and a gain on the waiver of deferred underwriting fees of $240,082, which was offset by operating and formation costs of $1,188,819.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we had net income of $3,187,742, which was a result of a gain in the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $1,139,772 and a gain on the investments held in the Trust Account of $7,405,485, which was offset by operating and formation costs of $5,357,515.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, we had net income of $5,444,903, which was a result of a gain in the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $7,788,441, a gain on the investments held in the Trust Account of $1,019,940 and a gain on the waiver of deferred underwriting fees of $240,082, which was offset by operating and formation costs of $3,603,560.

 

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Going Concern

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, net cash used in operating activities was $561,467, which was due to a gain in the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $1,139,772, and a gain on investments held in the Trust Account of $7,405,485, offset by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $2,825,565, net income of $3,187,742 and share-based compensation of $1,970,483.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, net cash used in operating activities was $635,556, which was due to a gain in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $7,788,441, a gain on investments held in the Trust Account of $1,019,940, and a gain on the waiver of deferred underwriting fees of $240,082, offset by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $1,004,739, net income of $5,444,903 and share-based compensation of $1,963,265.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, there was no cash provided by financing or investing activities.

On November 2, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 17,500,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $175,000,000.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 8,250,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement (the “First Private Placement”) to SDCL EDGE Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), Capricorn and Seaside generating gross proceeds of $8,250,000.

 

The Company had granted the underwriters in the Initial Public Offering (the “Underwriters”) a 45-day option to purchase up to 2,625,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any. On November 16, 2021, the Underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 2,495,246 Over-Allotment Units, generating gross proceeds of $24,952,460, and incurred $499,049 in cash underwriting fees.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 748,574 warrants (the “Over-Allotment Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement (the “Second Private Placement” and, together with the First Private Placement, the “Private Placements”) to the Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors, generating gross proceeds of $748,574.

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, the sale of the Over-Allotment Units, and the sale of the Over-Allotment Warrants, an amount of $201,951,985 was placed in a Trust Account. As of September 30, 2023, we had investments totaling $212,046,647 held in the Trust Account.

 

As of September 30, 2023, we had cash of $49,504 held outside the Trust Account. We will use the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination.

 

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less taxes payable and deferred underwriting commissions), to complete our initial Business Combination. To the extent that our equity or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

 

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, “Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.” The Company has until November 2, 2023 (24 months from the consummation of the Initial Public Offering), to consummate a Business Combination. It is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a Business Combination by the specified period. If a Business Combination is not consummated by November 2, 2023, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution.

 

The Company’s date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern one year from the date that the condensed financial statements set forth herein are issued. These condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Contractual Obligations

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants (as defined below) that may be issued upon conversion of the working capital loans (the “Working Capital Loans”) (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to consummation of a Business Combination. The Company bears the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Vendor Agreements

 

Since inception, the Company has engaged a legal firm (the "Legal Advisor") to provide services related to the Company's Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination, and the structuring of a transaction. Fees incurred by the Legal Advisor have been recorded as accrued contingent legal costs on the condensed balance sheets. The payment of these fees is contingent upon the consummation of a Business Combination. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had accrued contingent legal costs of $4,522,137 and $2,066,035, respectively.

 

On September 19, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with a financial advisory firm (the “Financial Advisor”) for financial advisory services such as structuring a transaction, assistance in negotiations, guidance on valuation in connection with a transaction, and other customary services in connection with a Business Combination. Pursuant to this agreement, the Company will pay the Financial Advisor a fee of $7,000,000 contingent upon the consummation of a Business Combination. Additionally, upon the consummation of a PIPE transaction, the Company will pay to the Financial Advisor a fee equal to 3.5% of (i) the gross proceeds raised or received by any PIPE issuer and/or its shareholders in the PIPE transaction, plus (ii) any amounts remaining in the Trust Account as of the closing of the Business Combination after giving effect to all redemptions of shares of the Company elected by the shareholders of the Company ((i) and (ii) together, the “Proceeds”) (the “PIPE Transaction Fee”). The PIPE Transaction Fee paid to the Financial Advisor shall not be less than 1.75% of the Proceeds.

 

Investment Advisory Agreement

 

On October 28, 2021, the Company and the Sponsor entered into an agreement with Sustainable Development Capital LLP (the “Advisor”), a London-based investment firm and affiliate of the Company and Sponsor, whereby the Advisor agreed to provide administrative, consulting, and other services to affect the Company’s initial Business Combination. In consideration of the services performed: (1) the Company and Sponsor shall procure the transfer of the legal and beneficial title to at least 659,844 Founder Shares, or at the sole election of the Sponsor, the payment of an amount equal to the cash value (as determined as of the date of such payment) of such number of Founder Shares, to the Advisor immediately prior to the winding up and liquidation of the Sponsor, or such other date as shall be agreed in writing between the Sponsor and Advisor; and (2) the Sponsor shall pay to the Advisor the sum of $20,000 per month as an ongoing advisory fee and subject to the terms and conditions of the Investment Advisory Agreement (the “Advisory Agreement”). The compensation expense related to the above Founder Share transfer of 659,844 shares is amortized on a straight-line basis from the Grant Date of October 28, 2021 (the date at which the Investment Advisory Agreement was signed, and the date at which all parties reached a mutual understanding of the key terms and conditions of the share-based payment) to November 2, 2023 (the original date at which the Combination Period for the Company’s initial Business Combination would have expired). Such Advisory Agreement is accounted for under ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation.

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, there were no costs incurred associated with web-based services provided by the Advisor. On August 5, 2022, the Company incurred costs associated to web based services provided by the Advisor. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the total costs incurred are $24,062 and recorded in operating and formation costs within the condensed statements of operations.

 

29

 

 

Administrative Support Agreement

 

On October 28, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $20,000 per month for office space, administrative and support services. Upon completion of the Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, $60,000 and $180,000, respectively, of administrative support expenses were incurred.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting policies:

 

Net Income Per Ordinary Share

 

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Net income per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. The immediate re-measurement of the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from net income per share as the redemption value approximates fair value. Therefore, the net income per share calculation allocates income and losses shared pro rata between Class A and Class B ordinary shares. As a result, the calculated net income per share is the same for Class A and Class B ordinary shares. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering, the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, and private placement to purchase an aggregate of 18,996,197 shares in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted income per share is the same as basic income (loss) per share for the periods presented.

 

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

 

All of the 19,995,246 Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the partial exercise of the over-allotment option contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with the Business Combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Class A ordinary shares have been classified outside of permanent equity.

 

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid-in capital and accumulated deficit. The redemption value of the redeemable ordinary shares as of September 30, 2023 increased as the income earned on the Trust Account exceeds the Company’s expected dissolution expenses (up to $100,000). From the closing of the IPO through September 30, 2023, the Company recorded an increase in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares, including the sale of Over-Allotment units, in the amount of $9,994,661.

 

30

 

 

Share-Based Compensation

 

Share-based compensation is included in operating and formation costs within the condensed statement of operations and accounted for based on the requirements of ASC 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”), which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee, non-employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee, non-employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee, non-employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. For the three months ended September 30, 2023, the Company recognized $664,045 of share-based compensation related to 659,844 Founder Shares to be transferred to Sustainable Development Capital LLP for certain services performed per the Investment Advisory Agreement.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 the Company recognized $1,970,483 of share-based compensation related to 659,844 Founder Shares to be transferred to Sustainable Development Capital LLP for certain services performed per the Investment Advisory Agreement.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value on the grant date and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement or conversion of the instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity” (“ASC 480”) and FASB ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (“ASC 815”). The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

 

The warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering and exercise of the over-allotment (the “Public Warrants”), and the Private Placement Warrants, are recognized as derivative liabilities in accordance with ASC 815. Accordingly, the Company recognizes the warrant instruments as liabilities at fair value and adjusts the instruments to fair value at each reporting period. The liabilities are subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in the Company’s statements of operations. The Company utilized a Monte Carlo simulation model for the initial valuation of the Public Warrants. The subsequent measurement of the Public Warrants after detachment from the Units issued in the Initial Public Offering is classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market under the ticker SEDA.WS. The Company utilizes a Monte Carlo Simulation model to value the Private Placement Warrants at each reporting period, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement warrant liability is determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a Monte Carlo Simulation model are assumptions related to expected share-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The Company estimates the volatility of its ordinary shares based on historical volatility that matches the expected remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates to remain at zero. Derivative warrant liabilities are classified as non-current liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.

 

Recent Accounting Standards

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls are procedures that are designed with the objective of ensuring that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this Report, is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time period specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls are also designed with the objective of ensuring that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. As required by Rules 13(a)-15 paragraphs 13(d)-15e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, our management carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures under the supervision of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer and concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective as of September 30, 2023.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the most recently completed fiscal quarter, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

None.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in this Quarterly Report are any of the risks previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 30, 2023, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 18, 2023 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 11, 2023. Any of those factors could result in a significant or material adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. Additional risk factors not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business or results of operations. As of the date of this Quarterly Report, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 30, 2023, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 18, 2023 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 11, 2023, except as described below. For risk factors related to the proposed Target Business Combination, see the “Risk Factors” section of the Target Disclosure Statement that we will file with the SEC. We may disclose changes to such factors or disclose additional factors from time to time in our future filings with the SEC.

 

The New York Stock Exchange may delist our securities from trading on its exchange, which could limit investors’ ability to make transactions in our securities and subject us to additional trading restrictions.

 

The Company’s Class A ordinary shares, public warrants and units are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). The Company is subject to compliance with NYSE’s continued listing requirements in order to maintain the listing of its securities on NYSE. Such continued listing requirements for the Class A ordinary shares include:

 

maintaining an average aggregate global market capitalization of at least $50,000,000 or an average aggregate global market capitalization attributable to publicly-held Class A ordinary shares of at least $40,000,000, excluding Class A ordinary shares held by the Company’s directors, officers, or their immediate families and other concentrated holdings of ten percent or greater, in each case measured over thirty consecutive trading days;

 

300 public shareholders; and

 

600,000 publicly-held Class A ordinary shares.

 

On January 12, 2023, the Company received a notice from NYSE that the Company was not in compliance with NYSE listing standard 802.01B because the Company had fallen below compliance with the 300 public shareholders requirement. In accordance with the NYSE listing requirements, we submitted a plan that demonstrated how we expected to return to compliance with NYSE listing standard 802.01B. On August 23, 2023, NYSE notified us that we were again in compliance with NYSE listing standard 802.01B but that we were subject to continued monitoring and review for a period of 12 months. While we have regained compliance with the continued listing requirements, we may in the future again fail to be in compliance with the NYSE listing standards and we may be subject to corrective action by NYSE, which may include suspension and delisting procedures.

 

The Company expects that if the Class A ordinary shares fail to meet NYSE’s continued listing requirements, the Company’s units will also fail to meet NYSE’s continued listing requirements for those securities. The Company cannot assure you that any of its Class A ordinary shares or units will be able to meet any of NYSE’s continued listing requirements. If the Company’s securities do not meet NYSE’s continued listing requirements, NYSE may delist the Company’s securities from trading on its exchange. If NYSE delists any of the Company’s securities from trading on its exchange and the Company is not able to list such securities on another national securities exchange, the Company expects such securities could be quoted on an over-the-counter market. If this were to occur, the Company could face significant material adverse consequences, including:

 

a limited availability of market quotations for the Company’s securities;

 

33

 

 

reduced liquidity for the Company’s securities;

 

a determination that the Class A ordinary shares are a “penny stock” which will require brokers trading in Class A ordinary shares to adhere to more stringent rules and possibly result in a reduced level of trading activity in the secondary trading market for the Company’s securities;

 

a limited amount of news and analyst coverage; and

 

a decreased ability to issue additional securities or obtain additional financing in the future.

 

The National Securities Markets Improvement Act of 1996, which is a federal statute, prevents or preempts the states from regulating the sale of certain securities, which are referred to as “covered securities.” The Company’s Class A ordinary shares and units qualify as covered securities under such statute. Although the states are preempted from regulating the sale of covered securities, the federal statute does allow the states to investigate companies if there is a suspicion of fraud, and, if there is a finding of fraudulent activity, then the states can regulate or bar the sale of covered securities in a particular case. While the Company is not aware of a state having used these powers to prohibit or restrict the sale of securities issued by SPACs, certain state securities regulators view blank check companies unfavorably and might use these powers, or threaten to use these powers, to hinder the sale of securities of blank check companies in their states. Further, if the Company was no longer listed on NYSE, the Company’s securities would not qualify as covered securities under such statute and the Company would be subject to regulation in each state in which it offers its securities.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

On November 2, 2021, we consummated our Initial Public Offering of 17,500,000 Units, at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating total gross proceeds of $175,000,000. The Underwriters acted as the joint-book running managers. On November 16, 2021, the Underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased 2,495,246 Over-Allotment Units, generating gross proceeds of $24,952,460. The securities sold in our Initial Public Offering and the exercise of the over-allotment option were registered under the Securities Act on the registration statement on Form S-1 (No. 333-254238). The registration statement became effective on October 28, 2021.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of our Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of 8,250,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in the First Private Placement to our Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors, generating gross proceeds of $8,250,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, we consummated the sale of 748,574 Over-Allotment Warrants at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant in the Second Private Placement to our Sponsor and the A Anchor Investors, generating gross proceeds of $748,574. Such securities were issued pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

The Private Placement Warrants and the Over-Allotment Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in our Initial Public Offering and upon exercise of the over-allotment option, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Over-Allotment Warrants are not transferable, assignable or saleable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. For a description of the use of the proceeds generated in our Initial Public Offering, see Part I, Item 2 of this Form 10-Q.

 

Item 3. Defaults Upon Senior Securities

 

None.

 

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 5. Other Information

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2023, no director or officer of the Company adopted or terminated a “Rule 10b5-1 trading arrangement” or “non-Rule 10b5-1 trading arrangement,” as each term is defined in Item 408(a) of Regulation S-K.
