NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1 — Description of Organization and Business Operations

 

FS Development Corp. II (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in Delaware on August 21, 2020. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). The Company is an emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.

 

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from August 21, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2021 relates to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) described below, and, subsequent to the Initial Public Offering, identifying a target company for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering (as defined below). The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

 

The Company’s sponsor is FS Development Holdings II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”). The registration statements for the Company’s Initial Public Offering became effective on February 16, 2021. On February 19, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 20,125,000 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”) including the issuance of 2,625,000 shares of Class A Common Stock as a result of the underwriter’s exercise in full of its over-allotment option, (each, a “Public Share” and collectively, the “Public Shares”) at $10.00 per share, generating gross proceeds of approximately $201.3 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $11.5 million, of which approximately $7.0 million was for deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 5).

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the private placement (the “Private Placement”) of 602,500 shares of Class A Common Stock (each, a “Private Placement Share” and collectively, the “Private Placement Shares”), at a price of $10.00 per Private Placement Share to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $6.0 million (see Note 4).

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, approximately $201.3 million ($10.00 per share of Class A Common Stock) of the net proceeds of the sale of the Public Shares in the Initial Public Offering and of the Private Placement Shares in the Private Placement were placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”) located in the United States, with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and are invested only in U.S. “government securities” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), which will be invested only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

 

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Shares, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete one or more initial Business Combinations having an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on the interest earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”).

FS DEVELOPMENT CORP. II

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

The Company will provide the holders (the “Public Stockholders”) of the Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The Public Stockholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then held in the Trust Account (initially anticipated to be $10.00 per Public Share). The per-share amount to be distributed to Public Stockholders who redeem their Public Shares will not be reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company will pay to the underwriter (as discussed in Note 5). These Public Shares will be recorded at a 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.” The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. The Company will not redeem the Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. If a stockholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a stockholder vote for business or other legal reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, stockholder approval of the transaction is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain stockholder approval for business or legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. Additionally, each public stockholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Initial Stockholders (as defined below) agreed to vote their Founder Shares (as defined below in Note 4), their Private Placement Shares and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of a Business Combination. In addition, the Initial Stockholders agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares, their Private Placement Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination.

 

The Certificate of Incorporation provides that a Public Stockholder, together with any affiliate of such stockholder or any other person with whom such stockholder 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 20% of the Public Shares, without the prior consent of the Company.

 

The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors (the “Initial Stockholders”) agreed not to propose an amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below) or with respect to any other material provisions relating to stockholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity, unless the Company provides the Public Stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares in conjunction with any such amendment.

 

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or February 19, 2023, or during any extended period of time that the Company may have to consummate a Business Combination as a result of an amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation (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 and not previously released to the Company to pay its taxes (less 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 Stockholders’ rights as stockholders (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 remaining stockholders and the board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law.

FS DEVELOPMENT CORP. II

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

The Initial Stockholders agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to the Founder Shares and Private Placement Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the Initial Stockholders acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriter has agreed to waive its rights to the deferred underwriting commission (see Note 5) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only $10.00. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party (except for the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm) for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement or business combination agreement (a “Target”), reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below the lesser of (i) $10.00 per Public Share and (ii) 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 $10.00 per Public Share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, less taxes payable, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims by a third party or Target that executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) nor will it apply to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriter of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). 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, 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.

 

Proposed Business Combination and Related Transaction

 

On June 29, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Orchard Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), Pardes Biosciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Pardes”) and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, solely in its capacity as the representative, agent and attorney-in-fact of the securityholders of Pardes (in such capacity, the “Stockholders’ Representative”). The Merger Agreement provides, among other things, that on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Merger Sub will merge with and into Pardes, with Pardes surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”). Upon the closing of the Merger (the “Closing”), it is anticipated that the Company will change its name to “Pardes Biosciences, Inc.” and is referred to herein as “New Pardes” as of the time following such change of name. The date on which the Closing actually occurs is hereinafter referred to as the “Closing Date.”

 

Consideration and Structure

 

Under the Merger Agreement, the Company has agreed to acquire all of the outstanding equity interests of Pardes in exchange for 32,500,000 shares of Class A Common Stock, to be paid at the effective time of the Merger.

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at or prior to the effective time of the Merger, each option exercisable for Pardes equity that is outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger shall be assumed by the Company and continue in full force and effect on the same terms and conditions as are currently applicable to such options, subject to adjustments to exercise price and number of shares of Class A Common Stock issued upon exercise.

 

Representations, Warranties and Covenants

 

The parties to the Merger Agreement have agreed to customary representations and warranties for transactions of this type. The representations and warranties of Pardes made under the Merger Agreement will not survive the Closing. In addition, the parties to the Merger Agreement agreed to be bound by certain customary covenants for transactions of this type, including, among others, covenants with respect to the conduct of Pardes, the Company and their respective subsidiaries during the period between execution of the Merger Agreement and the Closing. The covenants made under the Merger Agreement will not survive the Closing. Each of the parties to the Merger Agreement has agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to cause all actions and things necessary to consummate and expeditiously implement the Merger.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $48,000 in cash, and working capital deficit of approximately $1.8 million (not taking into account approximately $149,000 of tax obligations that may be paid using investment income classified in the Trust Account).

 

The Company’s liquidity needs prior to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering were satisfied through the payment of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover certain offering costs on behalf of the Company in exchange for issuance of Founder Shares (as defined in Note 4), and loan proceeds from the Sponsor of approximately $200,000 under the Note (see Note 4). The Company repaid the Note in full on February 19, 2021. Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company’s liquidity has been satisfied through the net proceeds from the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement held outside of the Trust Account. In addition, 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, provide the Company Working Capital Loans (as defined in Note 4). As of September 30, 2021, there were no amounts outstanding under any Working Capital Loans.

 

Based on the foregoing, management believes that the Company will have sufficient working capital and borrowing capacity from the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors to meet its needs through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or one year from this filing. Over this time period, the Company will be using the funds held outside of the Trust Account for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective initial Business Combination candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to merge with or acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

 

Note 2 — Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Revision to Previously Reported Financial Statements

 

During the preparation of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, the Company concluded it should revise its financial statements to classify all Class A common stock subject to possible redemption in temporary equity. In accordance with the SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, ASC 480, paragraph 10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require common stock subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. The Company had previously classified a portion of its Class A common stock in permanent equity, or total stockholders’ equity. Although the Company did not specify a maximum redemption threshold, its charter currently provides that, the Company will not redeem its public shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. Previously, the Company did not consider redeemable stock classified as temporary equity as part of net tangible assets. Effective with these financial statements, the Company revised this interpretation to include temporary equity in net tangible assets. Accordingly, effective with this filing, the Company presents all redeemable Class A common stock as temporary equity and to recognize accretion from the initial book value to redemption value at the time of its Initial Public Offering and in accordance with ASC 480. The change in the carrying value of the redeemable shares of Class A common stock at the Initial Public Offering resulted in a decrease of approximately $5.1 million in additional paid-in capital and an increase of approximately $5.4 million to accumulated deficit, as well as a reclassification of 1,048,264 shares of Class A common stock from permanent equity to temporary equity. The Company will present this revision in a prospective manner in all future filings. Under this approach, the previously issued IPO Balance Sheet and Form 10-Qs will not be amended, but historical amounts presented in the current and future filings will be recast to be consistent with the current presentation, and an explanatory footnote will be provided.

 

The impact of the revision to the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, is a reclassification of $10.6 million and $12.7 million, respectively, from accumulated deficit to Class A common stock subject to possible redemption. There is no impact to the reported amounts for total assets, total liabilities, net income (loss), or the net income (loss) per share. In connection with the change in presentation for the Class A common stock subject to possible redemption, the Company also revised its earnings per share calculation to allocate income and losses shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. This presentation contemplates a Business Combination as the most likely outcome, in which case, both classes of shares share pro rata in the income and losses of the Company.

 

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 stockholder 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 an emerging growth 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 an 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 unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements with another public company that is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company that 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 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 income and 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 significantly from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

 

Investments Held in the Trust Account

 

The Company’s portfolio of investments is comprised of U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 185 days or less, or investments in money market funds that invest in U.S. government securities and generally have a readily determinable fair value, or a combination thereof. When the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are comprised of U.S. government securities, the investments are classified as trading securities. When the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are comprised of money market funds, the investments are recognized at fair value. Trading securities and investments in money market funds are presented on the balance sheets at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in income on investments held in the Trust Account in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation coverage limit of $250,000. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for sale of an asset or paid for transfer of a liability, in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:

 

  Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical instruments in active markets;

 

  Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and

 

  Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

 

In some circumstances, the inputs used to measure fair value might be categorized within different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In those instances, the fair value measurement is categorized in its entirety in the fair value hierarchy based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering

 

Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred through the Initial Public Offering that were charged to stockholders’ equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company classifies deferred underwriting commissions 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. Offering costs associated with the Class A common stock issued were charged against the carrying value of the shares of Class A common stock upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering.

 

Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

 

The Company accounts for its Class A common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Class A common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A common stock (including Class A common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. As part of the Private Placement, the Company issued 602,500 shares of Class A common stock to the Sponsor (“Private Placement Shares”). These Private Placement Shares will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of our initial business combination, as such are considered non-redeemable and presented as permanent equity in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet. The Company’s Class A common stock feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, as of September 30, 2021, 20,125,000 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity (deficit) section of the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. There was no Class A common stock issued or outstanding as of December 31, 2020.

 

Effective with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company recognized the accretion from initial book value to redemption amount, which resulted in charges against additional paid-in capital (to the extent available) and accumulated deficit.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes under FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”). Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. As of September 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020, the Company had deferred tax assets with a full valuation allowance against them.

 

FASB ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions 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. There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of September 30, 2021 or December 31, 2020. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. 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 subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock

 

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” The Company has two classes of shares, which are referred to as Class A common stock and Class B common stock. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income (loss) per common share is calculated by dividing the net income (loss) by the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding for the respective period.

 

Accretion associated with the redeemable Class A common stock is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 3 — Initial Public Offering

 

On February 19, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 20,125,000 Public Shares, including the issuance of 2,625,000 shares as a result of the underwriter’s exercise in full of its over-allotment option, at $10.00 per share, generating gross proceeds of approximately $201.3 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $11.5 million, of which approximately $7.0 million was for deferred underwriting commissions.

 

Note 4 — Related Party Transactions

 

Founder Shares and Private Placement Shares

 

On August 26, 2020, the Sponsor paid $25,000 to cover certain offering costs on behalf of the Company in consideration of 2,875,000 shares (the “Founder Shares”) of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B Common Stock”). On January 22, 2021, the Sponsor transferred 30,000 Founder Shares to each of Dr. Dubin, Mr. Hughes and Dr. Pakianathan, at their original per-share purchase price, for an aggregate of 90,000 Founder Shares transferred. On February 5, 2021, the Company effected a 1:1½ stock split of the Class B Common Stock and on February 16, 2021, the Company effected a 1:11/6 stock split of the Class B Common Stock, resulting in the Sponsor holding an aggregate of 4,941,250 Founder Shares and there being an aggregate of 5,031,250 Founder Shares outstanding. The Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to 656,250 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriter, so that the Founder Shares would represent 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock after the Initial Public Offering (excluding the Private Placement Shares). On February 19, 2021, the underwriter exercised its over-allotment option; thus, these 656,250 Founder Shares are no longer subject to forfeiture.

FS DEVELOPMENT CORP. II

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the Private Placement of 602,500 Private Placement Shares, at a price of $10.00 per Private Placement Share to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $6.0 million.

 

The Initial Stockholders agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (i) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (ii) the date following the completion of the initial Business Combination on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the stockholders having the right to exchange their common stock for cash, securities or other property and the Sponsor agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of its Private Placement Shares until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the closing 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 the initial Business Combination, the Founder Shares will be released from the lockup.

 

Related Party Loans

 

On August 26, 2020, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $200,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note, as amended (the “Note”). This loan was non-interest bearing and payable upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company borrowed $200,000 under the Note and fully repaid it on February 19, 2021. No future borrowings are available under the agreement.

 

In addition, 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”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. 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. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination or, at the lenders’ discretion, up to $1.5 million of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into shares of Class A Common Stock of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $10.00 per share. 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. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had no borrowings under the Working Capital Loans.

 

Subscription Agreement

 

In connection with the proposed business combination, the Company entered in a subscription agreement with two related parties, each subscribing to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in the amount of $5,000,000 ($10,000,000 in aggregate) at the closing date of the proposed business combination.

 

Administrative Services Agreement

 

Commencing on the date that the Company’s securities were first listed on Nasdaq and continuing until the earlier of the Company’s consummation of a Business Combination and the Company’s liquidation, the Company agreed to pay the Sponsor, or an affiliate a total of $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to members of the Company’s management team. The Company incurred approximately $30,000, $80,000 and $0 in administrative expenses under the agreement, which is recognized in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2021, and for the period from August 21, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2020, respectively, within general and administrative expense – related party. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there was no outstanding balance in accounts payable with related party, as reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Note 5 — Commitments and Contingencies

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Shares, and shares of Class A Common Stock that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, if any, are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement. 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 the completion of the initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriting Agreement

 

The Company granted the underwriter a 45-day option from the date of the final prospectus relating to the Proposed Public Offering to purchase up to 2,625,000 additional shares of Class A Common Stock to cover over-allotments, if any, at the Proposed Public Offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The underwriter exercised its over-allotment option in full on February 19, 2021.

 

The underwriter was entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per share, or approximately $4.0 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per share, or approximately $7.0 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriter for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriter from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations, and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statement. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

References to the “Company,” “FS Development Corp. II.,” “FS Development,” “our,” “us” or “we” refer to FS Development Corp. II. The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other SEC filings.

 

Overview

 

We are a blank check company incorporated in Delaware on August 21, 2020. We were formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). We are an emerging growth company and, as such, we are subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.

 

Our sponsor is FS Development Holdings II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”). The registration statements for our Initial Public Offering became effective on February 16, 2021. On February 19, 2021, we consummated our initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) of 20,125,000 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), including the issuance of 2,625,000 shares of Class A Common Stock as a result of the underwriter’s exercise in full of its over-allotment option, (each, a “Public Share” and collectively, the “Public Shares”) at $10.00 per share, generating gross proceeds of approximately $201.3 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $11.5 million, of which approximately $7.0 million was for deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 5 to the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements).

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 602,500 shares of Class A Common Stock (each, a “Private Placement Share” and collectively, the “Private Placement Shares”), at a price of $10.00 per Private Placement Share to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $6.0 million (see Note 4).

 

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, approximately $201.3 million ($10.00 per share of Class A Common Stock) of the net proceeds of the sale of the Public Shares in the Initial Public Offering and of the Private Placement Shares in the Private Placement were placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”) located in the United States, with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and were invested only in U.S. “government securities” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), which will be invested only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

 

Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Shares, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that we will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. We must complete one or more initial Business Combinations having an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on the interest earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial Business Combination. However, we will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”).

If we are unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or February 19, 2023, or during any extended period of time that we may have to consummate a Business Combination as a result of an amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation (the “Combination Period”), we 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 and not previously released to us to pay our taxes (less 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 Stockholders’ rights as stockholders (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 remaining stockholders and the board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law.

 

Proposed Business Combination and Related Transaction  

 

On June 29, 2021, we entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Orchard Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”), Pardes Biosciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Pardes”) and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, solely in its capacity as the representative, agent and attorney-in-fact of the securityholders of Pardes (in such capacity, the “Stockholders’ Representative”). The Merger Agreement provides, among other things, that on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Merger Sub will merge with and into Pardes, with Pardes surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”). Upon the closing of the Merger (the “Closing”), it is anticipated that the Company will change its name to “Pardes Biosciences, Inc.” and is referred to herein as “New Pardes” as of the time following such change of name. The date on which the Closing actually occurs is hereinafter referred to as the “Closing Date.”

 

Consideration and Structure

 

Under the Merger Agreement, we have agreed to acquire all of the outstanding equity interests of Pardes in exchange for 32,500,000 shares of Class A Common Stock, to be paid at the effective time of the Merger.

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at or prior to the effective time of the Merger, each option exercisable for Pardes equity that is outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger shall be assumed by the Company and continue in full force and effect on the same terms and conditions as are currently applicable to such options, subject to adjustments to exercise price and number of shares of Class A Common Stock issued upon exercise.

 

Conditions to Closing

  

Under the Merger Agreement, the obligations of the parties to consummate the Merger are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions of the respective parties, including, without limitation: (i) the approval and adoption of the Merger Agreement and transactions contemplated thereby by requisite vote of the Company’s stockholders (the “Company Stockholder Approval”) and Pardes’ stockholders (the “Pardes Stockholder Approval”); (ii) the receipt of consents or approvals from the applicable governmental, regulatory or administrative authorities; (iii) the aggregate cash proceeds from Company’s trust account, together with the proceeds from the Subscriptions (as defined below), equaling no less than $100,000,000 (after deducting any amounts paid to Company stockholders that exercise their redemption rights in connection with the Merger and net of the Company’s unpaid liabilities), (iv) (A) the representations and warranties of the Company, Pardes and Merger Sub contained in the Merger Agreement (other than each party’s respective Fundamental Representations, as defined in the Merger Agreement) being true and correct as of the date of the Merger Agreement and as of the Closing Date, except for any failure to be true and correct that would not have or reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and (B) each party’s respective Fundamental Representations being true and correct as of the date of the Merger Agreement and as of the Closing Date, except for de minimis inaccuracies; (v) the absence of a Material Adverse Effect since the date of the Merger Agreement; (vi) the Company has not redeemed the Class A Common Stock of the Company in an amount that would cause the Company to have net tangible assets of less than $5,000,001; and (vii) the Company’s initial listing application with Nasdaq in connection with the Merger has been conditionally approved and, immediately following the effective time of the Merger, the Company has satisfied any applicable initial and continuing listing requirements of Nasdaq, and the Company has not received any notice of non-compliance therewith, and the shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock has been approved for listing on Nasdaq.

Parent Support Agreement

 

On June 29, 2021, we entered into a support agreement (the “Parent Support Agreement”) with Pardes, the Sponsor and certain of our other stockholders (together with the Sponsor, the “Parent Supporting Stockholders”), whereby each Parent Supporting Stockholder agreed to, among other things, (i) vote, at any meeting of the stockholders of the Company, and in any action by written consent of the stockholders of the Company, all their shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock in favor of the approval and adoption of the Merger and each of the Parent Proposals (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and (ii) be bound by certain transfer and other restrictions with respect to Class A Common Stock or Class B Common Stock held by the Parent Supporting Stockholders, in each case on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Parent Support Agreement. In addition, the Parent Support Agreement provides that the Sponsor shall purchase up to $25,000,000 shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock in the event that Trust Account (after giving effect to redemptions by stockholders of the Company) has a cash balance of less than $25,000,000.

 

Pardes Support Agreement

 

On June 29, 2021 we entered into a support agreement (the “Pardes Support Agreement”) with certain Pardes stockholders (the “Pardes Supporting Stockholders”), pursuant to which each Pardes Supporting Stockholder agreed to, among other things, (i) as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in any event within five (5) business days) following the SEC declaring effective the proxy statement/prospectus relating to the Merger, execute and deliver a written consent with respect to the outstanding shares of Pardes common stock, and Pardes preferred stock held by such Pardes Supporting Stockholder (the “Subject Pardes Shares”) approving the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, (ii) appear at any meeting of the holders of Pardes capital stock, in person or by proxy, and cause its Subject Pardes Shares to be voted in favor of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, against any Alternative Transaction (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and against any action or agreement that would impede or frustrate the provisions of the Pardes Support Agreement, the Merger Agreement or the transactions contemplated thereby and (iii) be bound by certain transfer and other restrictions with respect to the Subject Pardes Shares. Additionally, pursuant to the Pardes Support Agreement, certain stockholder agreements of Pardes shall be automatically terminated and of no further force and effect, effective as of, and subject to and condition upon the occurrence of, the Closing.

 

Subscription Agreement

 

In connection with the Merger, the Company entered into subscription agreements with certain investors, pursuant to which, among other things, such investors have subscribed to purchase an aggregate of 7,500,000 shares of Class A common stock of the Company (together, the “Subscriptions”) for a purchase price of $10.00 per share to be issued at the Closing. The obligations of each party to consummate the Subscriptions are conditioned upon, among other things, customary closing conditions and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2021, we had approximately $48,000 in its operating bank account, and working capital deficit of approximately $1.8 million (not taking into account approximately $149,000 of tax obligations that may be paid using investment income classified in the Trust Account).

 

The Company’s liquidity needs prior to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering were satisfied through the payment of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover for certain offering costs on behalf of the Company in exchange for issuance of Founder Shares (as defined in Note 4), and loan proceeds from the Sponsor of approximately $200,000 under the Note (see Note 4). The Company repaid the Note in full on February 19, 2021. Subsequent from the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company’s liquidity has been satisfied through the net proceeds from the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement held outside of the Trust Account. In addition, 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, provide the Company Working Capital Loans (as defined in Note 4). As of September 30, 2021, there were no amounts outstanding under any Working Capital Loans.

 

18

 

 

Based on the foregoing, management believes that we will have sufficient working capital and borrowing capacity from the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors to meet its needs through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or one year from this filing. Over this time period, we will be using these funds for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective initial Business Combination candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to merge with or acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

 

Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on our financial position, results of our operations and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our entire activity since inception up to September 30, 2021 was in preparation for our formation and the Initial Public Offering, and, subsequent to the Initial Public Offering, identifying a target company for a Business Combination. We will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial Business Combination.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had net loss of approximately $1.2 million, which consisted of approximately $1.1 million general and administrative expenses (consisting of approximately $1.0 million in fees and expenses related to the Business Combination), $30,000 of general and administrative expenses – related party, and approximately $50,000 of franchise tax expense which was partially offset by approximately $5,000 gain on investment (net), dividends and interest held in Trust Account.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we had net loss of approximately $3.6 million, which consisted of approximately $3.3 million general and administrative expenses (consisting of approximately $3.0 million in fees and expenses related to the Business Combination), $80,000 of general and administrative expenses – related party, and approximately $150,000 of franchise tax expense which was partially offset by approximately $12,000 gain on investment (net), dividends and interest held in Trust Account.

 

For the period from August 21, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 202, we had net loss of approximately $1,000 which was all made up of general and administrative expenses.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

Administrative Support Agreement

 

Commencing on the date that our securities were first listed on Nasdaq and continuing until the earlier of our consummation of a Business Combination and our liquidation, we agreed to pay the Sponsor, or an affiliate a total of $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to members of our management team.

 

The Sponsor, officers and directors, or any of their respective affiliates will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with activities on our behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable Business Combinations. Our audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made to the Sponsor, officers or directors, or their affiliates.

 

We incurred approximately $30,000, $80,000 and $0 in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, and for the period from August 21, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2020, respectively. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there was no outstanding balance in accounts payable with related party, as reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

19

 

 

Registration Rights

 

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Shares, and shares of Class A Common Stock that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, if any, are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that we register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination. We will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriting Agreement

 

The underwriter was entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per share, or approximately $4.0 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per share, or approximately $7.0 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriter for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriter from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Class A common shares subject to possible redemption

 

We account for its Class A common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Class A common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A common stock (including Class A common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. As part of the Private Placement, we issued 602,500 shares of Class A common stock to the Sponsor (“Private Placement Shares”). These Private Placement Shares will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of our initial business combination, as such are considered non-redeemable and presented as permanent equity in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet. Our Class A common stock feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, as of September 30, 2021, 20,125,000 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity (deficit) section of our condensed consolidated balance sheets. There was no Class A common stock issued or outstanding as of December 31, 2020.

 

Effective with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we recognized the accretion from initial book value to redemption amount, which resulted in charges against additional paid-in capital (to the extent available) and accumulated deficit.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock

 

We comply with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” We have two classes of shares, which are referred to as Class A common stock and Class B common stock. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income (loss) per common share is calculated by dividing the net income (loss) by the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding for the respective period.

 

Accretion associated with the redeemable Class A common stock is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of September 30, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K.

 

20

 

 

JOBS Act

 

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We qualify as an “emerging growth company” and under the JOBS Act are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As a result, the financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

 

Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an “emerging growth company,” we choose to rely on such exemptions we may not be required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis) and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of our Initial Public Offering or until we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” whichever is earlier.

 

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

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer has concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021 covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q 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

 

As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our final prospectus filed with the SEC on February 18, 2021, except for the below risk factor. We may disclose changes to such factors or disclose additional factors from time to time in our future filings with the SEC.

 

The securities in which we invest the funds held in the trust account could bear a negative rate of interest, which could reduce the value of the assets held in trust such that the per-share redemption amount received by public stockholders may be less than $10.00 per share.

 

The proceeds held in the trust account will be invested only in U.S. government treasury obligations with a maturity 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. While short-term U.S. government treasury obligations currently yield a positive rate of interest, they have briefly yielded negative interest rates in recent years. Central banks in Europe and Japan pursued interest rates below zero in recent years, and the Open Market Committee of the Federal Reserve has not ruled out the possibility that it may in the future adopt similar policies in the United States. In the event that we are unable to complete our initial business combination or make certain amendments to our amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, our public stockholders are entitled to receive their pro-rata share of the proceeds held in the trust account, plus any interest income, net of income taxes paid or payable (less, in the case we are unable to complete our initial business combination, $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses). Negative interest rates could reduce the value of the assets held in trust such that the per-share redemption amount received by public stockholders may be less than $10.00 per share.

 

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

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 602,500 shares of Class A Common Stock (each, a “Private Placement Share” and collectively, the “Private Placement Shares”), at a price of $10.00 per Private Placement Share to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $6.0 million (see Note 4).

 

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, our sponsor had agreed to loan us an aggregate of up to $200,000 pursuant to the Note. This loan is non-interest bearing and payable on the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. As of September 30, 2021, the loan balance was $0.

 

Of the gross proceeds received from the Initial Public Offering and the full exercise of the option to purchase additional shares, $201,250,000 was placed in the Trust Account. The net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain proceeds from the Private Placement are invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less and 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.

 

We paid a total of approximately $4 million in underwriting discounts and commissions related to the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the underwriter agreed to defer $7.0 million in underwriting discounts and commissions.
