Agreements with underwriters and investment advisors

 

The Company engaged the underwriters as advisors in connection with our Initial Business Combination to assist us in holding meetings with our shareholders to discuss the potential business combination and the target business’ attributes, introduce us to potential investors that are interested in purchasing our securities, assist us in obtaining shareholder approval for the business combination and assist us with our press releases and public filings in connection with the business combination. The Company will pay the underwriters a cash fee for such services upon the consummation of our initial business combination in an amount of approximately $4,080,000 (exclusive of any applicable finders’ fees which might become payable).

 

The Company has engaged an investment advisor to assist us in connection with due diligence, financial analysis and positioning the Company in the capital markets (the “Capital Markets Fee”) related to the Proposed Business Combination. The Company will pay the investment advisor a cash fee of approximately $2,000,000 for due diligence and advisory services upon the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination. The Company will also pay the Capital Markets Fee of 3% of the cash or securities available for the closing of the Proposed Business Combination including the proceeds received from the trust account net of cash reserved to fulfill redemption requests upon the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination.

 

The Company has engaged additional investment advisors for financial advisory services related to the Proposed Business Combination. The Company will pay the investment advisors cash fees totaling $490,000 for financial advisory services upon the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination. Additional discretionary success fees of up to $120,000 may be paid to the investment advisors at the sole discretion of the Company only upon the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination.

 

Registration Rights

 

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on October 4, 2017, the holders of the Founders’ Shares, as well as the holders of the Placement Units and any units our Sponsor, officers, directors or their affiliates may be issued in payment of working capital loans made to us (and all underlying securities), are entitled to registration rights. The holders of a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to two demands that we register such securities. The holders of the majority of the Founders’ Shares can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time commencing three months prior to the date on which these shares of common stock are to be released from escrow. The holders of a majority of the Placement Units and units issued to our Sponsor, officers, directors or their affiliates in payment of working capital loans made to us (or underlying securities) can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time after we consummate a Business Combination. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to our consummation of a Business Combination. We will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
