Founder Shares

On December 28, 2020, the Sponsor purchased 8,625,000 of the Company’s Class B common stock (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000. The Founder Shares included an aggregate of up to 1,125,000 shares that were subject to forfeiture. As a result of the underwriters’ election to fully exercise their over-allotment option, no Founder Shares are currently subject to forfeiture.

The Sponsor has agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of a Business Combination and (B) subsequent to a Business Combination, (x) if the last reported sale price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after a Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the Public Stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.

Promissory Note — Related Party

On December 28, 2020, the Sponsor issued an unsecured promissory note to the Company (the “Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $300,000. The Promissory Note is non-interest bearing and payable on the earlier of December 31, 2021 or the consummation of the Initial Public Offering.  During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, $107,197 was borrowed under the Promissory Note and $106,947 was repaid at the closing of the Initial Public Offering on February 23, 2021 and $250 was repaid on February 25, 2021, reducing the balance to zero as of September 30, 2021.

Convertible Promissory Note — Related Party

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). Such Working Capital Loans would be evidenced by promissory notes. The notes may be repaid upon completion of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $2,000,000 of the notes may be converted upon completion of a Business Combination into warrants at a price of $1.50 per warrant. Such warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans.

On September 8, 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $2,000,000 pursuant to a new promissory note (the “Working Capital Loan”). The Working Capital Loan is non-interest bearing and payable upon consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination. At the lender’s discretion, the Working Capital Loan may be repayable in warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant. At September 30, 2021, there was $750,000 of borrowings under the Working Capital Loan. This note was valued using the fair value method as discussed in Note 11. The fair value of the note as of September 30, 2021, was $779,648 which resulted in a change in fair value of the convertible promissory note of $29,648 recorded in the statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Administrative Services Agreement

The Company agreed, commencing on February 18, 2021 through the earlier of the Company’s consummation of a Business Combination and its liquidation, to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $9,500 per month for office space, administrative and support services. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company has incurred and paid $28,500 and $69,893 in fees for these services, respectively.
