NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
On January 26, 2021, the Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of 5,750,000 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”). The Founder Shares include an aggregate of up to 750,000 Class B ordinary shares subject to forfeiture by the Sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full or in part, so that the Sponsor will own, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering (assuming the Sponsor does not purchase any Public Shares in the Initial Public Offering). On May 11, 2021, 750,000 Class B ordinary shares were forfeited by the Sponsor.
The Sponsor has agreed that, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned, sold or released from escrow until the earlier of (i) one year after the completion of a Business Combination or (ii) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction after an initial Business Combination that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if (1) the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after an initial Business Combination or (2) if the Company consummates a transaction after an initial Business Combination which results in the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their shares for cash, securities or other property, the Founder Shares will be released from the lock-up.
Promissory Notes—Related Party
On January 26, 2021, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company could borrow up to an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering. The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and is payable on the earlier of (i) December 31, 2021 or (ii) the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company did not borrow any amount under the Promissory Note.
Administrative Support Agreement
The Company entered into an agreement, commencing on March 22, 2021, to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, utilities, secretarial and administrative support services. Upon the completion of an initial Business Combination or liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. Under this agreement, $30,000 and $30,000 of expenses were incurred for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $60,000 and $40,000 of expenses were incurred for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and for the period from January 22, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021, respectively. All incurred fees have been paid in full as of June 30, 2022.
Related Party Loans
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 directors and officers may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans. 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. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.
On September 19, 2022, the Company issued an unsecured convertible promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to $200,000 from the Sponsor for general corporate purpose. Such loan may, at the Sponsor's discretion, be converted into warrants to purchase Class A ordinary shares of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share, at a conversion price equal to $1.00 per warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share, subject to the same adjustments applicable to the Private Placement Warrants. The terms of the Working Capital Loan Warrants will be identical to those of the Private Placement Warrants. The Working Capital Loan will not bear any interest, and will be repayable by the Company to the Sponsor, if not converted or repaid on the effective date of an initial merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination involving the Company and one or more businesses. The maturity date of the Working Capital Loan may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined under the Convertible Promissory Note).
