NOTE 5 — RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
In March 2021, the Sponsor purchased 8,625,000 Founder Shares for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000 and an aggregate of 142,500 of such Founder Shares were subsequently transferred to our independent directors, executive officers and special advisor and other third parties. The fair value of the shares transferred is de minimis. On November 30, 2021, the Sponsor surrendered 1,725,000 Founder Shares as a result of changes to the terms of the Initial Public Offering, resulting in the Sponsor owning 6,900,000 Founder Shares. On January 19, 2022, the Company issued an additional 345,000 shares of Class B common stock pursuant to a stock split for no additional consideration as a result of the upsize to the Company’s Initial Public Offering (see Note 6). The number of Founder Shares outstanding collectively represents approximately 23% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering.
The Sponsor has agreed, subject to certain limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier of (A) one year after the completion of an Initial Business Combination or (B) subsequent to an Initial 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 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 (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange,
reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of Class A common stock for cash, securities or other property.
Promissory Note — Related Party
In March 2021, the Sponsor issued an unsecured promissory note to the Company (the “Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company could borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $300,000. The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and was due upon the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. On January 24, 2022, the Company paid $289,425, the full amount outstanding under the Promissory Note, to the Sponsor.
Convertible Promissory Notes – Related Parties
On June 1, 2023, the Company entered into promissory note agreements with certain related parties (the “Related Party Promissory Notes”), pursuant to which the Company could borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000. The Related Party Promissory Notes are non-interest bearing and are due upon the consummation of the consummation of an Initial Business Combination. If an Initial Business Combination is not consummated, the Related Party Promissory Notes are only repaid solely to the extent the Company has funds available to it outside of the Trust Account, and that all other amounts will be contributed to capital, forfeited, eliminated or otherwise forgiven or eliminated. Upon consummation of an Initial Business Combination, the payees have the option, but not the obligation, to convert up to an aggregate $1,500,000 of the total outstanding principal amounts of the Related Party Promissory Notes, in whole or in part, into warrants of the Company (each, a “Warrant”) at a price of $1.00 per Warrant. Each Warrant is exercisable for one share of Class A common stock, $0.0001 par value per share, of the Company. The Warrants will be identical to the private placement warrants issued to the Sponsor at the time of the Company’s Initial Public Offering. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there was $400,000 and $0 outstanding under the Related Party Promissory Notes, respectively. The Company determined that the fair value of the conversion option is de minimis as of the date of the promissory note draws through June 30, 2023. As such, the Company has recorded the Related Party Promissory Notes balance at amortized cost on the Balance Sheets.
Related Party Loans
In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with an Initial Business Combination, the Sponsor, an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors or their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of an Initial Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans, or up to an aggregate of $4,830,000 of such Working Capital Loans with respect to funded extension periods, may be convertible into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant, of the post-Business Combination entity. If the Company completes an Initial 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 an Initial 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 warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there was $400,000 and $0 outstanding under the Working Capital Loans as the Related Party Promissory Notes entered into on June 1, 2023 are Working Capital Loans.
Support Services Agreement
Commencing on the listing date, the Company agreed to pay the Sponsor pursuant to a support services agreement a total of $10,000 per month for office space provided to the Company. Upon completion of the Initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company’s contractual obligation under the support services agreement to pay these monthly fees will cease. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Sponsor permanently waived its right to receive such fees from the Company. The Sponsor expects to continue to permanently waive its rights to receive such fees in future periods.
