Founder Shares


In July 2019, the Sponsor purchased 3,881,250 founder shares for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000, or approximately $0.006 per share. On October 30, 2019, the Company effected a stock dividend for approximately 0.11 shares for each share of Class B common stock outstanding, resulting in the Sponsor holding an aggregate of 4,312,500 founder shares (“Founder Shares”). In October 2019, the Sponsor transferred 25,000 Founder Shares to four of the Company’s directors, and to a senior advisor. The Sponsor had agreed to forfeit up to 562,500 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters. On November 26, 2019, the underwriters exercised the over-allotment option in full; thus, these Founder Shares were no longer subject to forfeiture.


The Company’s initial stockholders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of a Business Combination or (B) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange or similar transaction that results in the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the last sale price of the Company’s Class A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Business Combination, the Founder Shares will be released from the lock-up.


Private Placement Warrants


In connection with the Offering, the Sponsor purchased an aggregate of 5,700,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant ($5,700,000 in the aggregate) each exercisable to purchase one share of the Company’s Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, in a private placement that closed simultaneously with the closing of the Offering. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was added to the net proceeds from the 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. 


Promissory Note — Related Party


On July 31, 2019, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). The Note was non-interest bearing and was due on the earlier of March 31, 2020 or upon the completion of the Offering. The Company borrowed $225,000 under the Note. The Note balance was paid in full upon the closing of the Offering on November 26, 2019.


Related Party Loans 


In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, an affiliate of the Sponsor, or the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (the “Working Capital Loans”). Such Working Capital Loans would be evidenced by promissory notes. The notes would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of notes may be converted upon consummation of a Business Combination into additional Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Warrant. 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. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. At September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there were no outstanding Working Capital Loans.


Administrative Support Agreement


The Company agreed to pay $10,000 a month for office space, utilities, and secretarial and administrative support to the Sponsor. Services commenced on the date the securities were first listed on the Nasdaq and will terminate upon the earlier of the consummation by the Company of a Business Combination or the liquidation of the Company. The Company incurred $30,000 and $90,000 for expenses in connection with such services for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, which is reflected in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.
