NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2022 (UNAUDITED)

Note 1 — Organization and Business Operations
 
Figure Acquisition Corp. I (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated as a Delaware corporation on December 15, 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 (“Business Combination”).
 
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity through  March 31, 2022 relates to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering (the “IPO” or the “Initial Public Offering”) which is described below, and after completion of the IPO, identifying a target company for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of a Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates non-operating income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering, and other income (loss) from the change in fair value of the warrant liability.
 
The registration statement for the Company’s IPO was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 18, 2021 (the “Effective Date”). On February 23, 2021, the Company consummated the IPO of 28,750,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the shares of Class A common stock included in the Units sold, the “Public Shares”), which included the full exercise by the underwriters of the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,750,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $287,500,000, which is discussed in Note 3. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per whole share.
 
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated the sale of 5,166,667 Private Placement Warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, in a private placement to Fintech Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds of $7,750,000, which is discussed in Note 4.
 
Transaction costs of the IPO amounted to $16,253,012 consisting of $5,750,000 of underwriting discount, $10,062,500 of deferred underwriting discount, and $440,512 of other offering costs, and of which $621,678 were allocated to expense associated with the warrant liability.
 
Following the closing of the IPO on February 23, 2021, $287,500,000 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net offering proceeds of the sale of the Units in the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) and invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds investing solely in U.S. Treasuries, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of:  (a) the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination, (b) the redemption of any shares of the Company’s Public Shares properly submitted in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (i) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide for the redemption of the Public Shares in connection with the initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of the Company’s Public Shares if it does not complete its initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO or (ii) with respect to any other provision relating to stockholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity, and (c) the redemption of 100% of the Company’s public shares if the Company is unable to complete the initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO, subject to applicable law.
 
The Company will provide its public stockholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their public shares upon the completion of the initial Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the initial Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a proposed initial Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The stockholders will be entitled to redeem their shares for a pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account (initially approximately $10.00 per share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations).
 
The Company will have 24 months from February 23, 2021, the closing of the IPO, to complete an initial Business Combination (the “Combination Period”). However, if the Company is unable to complete its initial Business Combination within 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 Company’s remaining stockholders and 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.

The Sponsor, officers and directors have agreed to (i) waive their redemption rights with respect to their shares of the Company’s Class B common stock (the “founder shares”), shares of Class L common stock and public shares in connection with the completion of the initial Business Combination, (ii) waive their redemption rights with respect to their founder shares, shares of Class L common stock and public shares in connection with a stockholder vote to approve an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (A) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide for the redemption of the public shares in connection with an initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of the public shares if the Company does not complete the initial Business Combination within the Combination Period or (B) with respect to any other material provisions relating to stockholder’s rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity, (iii) waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to their founder shares and shares of Class L common stock if the Company fails to complete the initial Business Combination within the Combination Period, and (iv) vote any founder shares held by them and any public shares purchased during or after the Public Offering (including in open market and privately-negotiated transactions) in favor of the Company’s initial Business Combination.
 
The Company’s Sponsor has agreed that it will be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a written letter of intent, confidentiality or similar agreement or business combination agreement, 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 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 prospective target business who 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 underwriters of the Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. However, the Company has not asked its Sponsor to reserve for such indemnification obligations, nor has the Company independently verified whether its Sponsor has sufficient funds to satisfy its indemnity obligations and believes that the Company’s Sponsor’s only assets are securities of the Company. Therefore, the Company cannot assure that its Sponsor would be able to satisfy those obligations.
 
Liquidity, Capital Resources, and Going Concern
 
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $0.5 million and approximately $0.8 million in its operating bank account, respectively, and working capital, net of franchise tax payable of approximately $0.4 million and $0.7 million, respectively.
 
The Company’s liquidity needs up to February 23, 2021 had been satisfied through a capital contribution from the Sponsor of $25,000 (see Note 5) for the Founder shares and Class L shares, and the loan under an unsecured promissory note from the Sponsor of up to $300,000 which was paid in full on February 23, 2021 from the IPO proceeds (see Note 5).

Subsequent to the consummation of the IPO, the Company’s liquidity needs have been satisfied through the net proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, provide us working capital loans. Additionally, an affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor entered into a commitment letter with the Company whereby the affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor agreed to provide working capital loans sufficient for the Company to satisfy its obligation as they come due until the earlier of: (a) the completion of the initial Business Combination, or (b) liquidation. Any such working capital loan under the commitment letter will be repaid to the affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor by the Company upon the completion of the initial Business Combination or, in the event of liquidation prior to the completion of the initial Business Combination, forgiven by the affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor upon liquidation. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no amounts outstanding under any working capital loan.
 

If the Company does not consummate an initial business combination by February 23, 2023, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Management has determined that the mandatory liquidation, should an initial business combination not occur, and potential subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company intends to consummate an initial business combination prior to February 23, 2023; however, it is uncertain whether the Company will be able to do so. The unaudited condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Other Risks and Uncertainties

 

Management is continuing to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that it 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 unaudited condensed financial statements. The unaudited condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.


In February 2022, the Russian Federation and Belarus commenced a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including the United States, have instituted economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and Belarus. Further, the impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy are not determinable as of the date of these financial statements and the specific impact on the Company's financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these financial statements.
 
Note 2 — Significant Accounting Policies
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company are presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed financial statements reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments necessary for the fair statement of the balances and results for the periods presented.
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 as filed with the SEC on April 13, 2022, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto. The accompanying condensed balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 has been derived from the audited financial statements. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022 or for any future interim periods.

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 auditor 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 a 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 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 financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which 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 unaudited condensed financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires 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 unaudited condensed financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ 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 did not have any cash equivalents as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.
 
Marketable Securities Held in Trust Account
 
At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the assets held in the Trust Account were held primarily in U.S. Treasury Bills with maturities of 185 days or less.  During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company did not withdraw any of the interest income from the Trust Account to pay its tax obligations.

The Company classifies its United States Treasury securities as held-to-maturity in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 320 “Investments - Debt and Equity Securities.” Held-to-maturity securities are those securities which the Company has the ability and intent to hold until maturity. Held-to-maturity treasury securities are recorded at amortized cost and adjusted for the amortization or accretion of premiums or discounts.

A decline in the market value of held-to-maturity securities below cost that is deemed to be other than temporary, results in an impairment that reduces the carrying costs to such securities’ fair value. The impairment is charged to earnings and a new cost basis for the security is established. To determine whether an impairment is other than temporary, the Company considers whether it has the ability and intent to hold the investment until a market price recovery and considers whether evidence indicating the cost of the investment is recoverable outweighs evidence to the contrary. Evidence considered in this assessment includes the reasons for the impairment, the severity and the duration of the impairment, changes in value subsequent to year-end, forecasted performance of the investee, and the general market condition in the geographic area or industry in which the investee operates.

Premiums and discounts are amortized or accreted over the life of the related held-to-maturity security as an adjustment to yield using the effective-interest method. Such amortization and accretion are included in the “interest income” line item in the condensed statements of operations. Interest income is recognized when earned.
 
Warrant Liabilities
 
The Company evaluated the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants (collectively, “Warrants”, which are discussed in Note 3, Note 4 and Note 8) in accordance with ACS 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity” and ASC 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity”, and concluded that a provision in the Warrant Agreement related to certain tender or exchange offers precludes the Warrants from being accounted for as components of equity. As the Warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the Warrants are recorded as derivative liabilities on the Condensed Balance Sheets and measured at fair value at inception (on the date of the IPO) and at each reporting date in accordance with ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement”, with changes in fair value recognized in the Condensed Statements of Operations in the period of change.
 
Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering
 
The Company complies with the requirements of ASC 340-10-S99-1. Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred through the Initial Public Offering that were directly related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs are allocated to the separable financial instruments issued in the Initial Public Offering based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received.  Offering costs associated with warrant liabilities are expensed as incurred and presented as non-operating expenses in the condensed statements of operations. Offering costs associated with the Class A common stock were charged to temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. Transaction costs amounted to $16,253,012, of which $621,678 were allocated to expense associated with the warrant liability.
 
Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption
 
All of the Class A Common Stock sold as part of the Units in the Public Offering contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such public shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a stockholder vote or tender offer in connection with the Business Combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s second amended and restated certificate of incorporation. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in ASC 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require common stock subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Ordinary liquidation events, which involve the redemption and liquidation of all of the entity’s equity instruments, are excluded from the provisions of ASC 480.  Accordingly, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, all shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ deficit section of the Company’s condensed balance sheet.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable common stock to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable common stock are affected by charges against additional paid-in capital (to the extent available) and accumulated deficit.

Share-Based Compensation

The Company complies with ASC Topic 718, “Compensation - Stock Compensation” regarding interests in founder shares transferred by the Sponsor to directors of the Company as compensation, which are described in Note 5.

The interests in the Founder Shares effectively vest upon the Company completing the initial Business Combination and compensation expense will be recorded accordingly at that date based upon the initial grant date fair value, the determination of which represents a significant estimate. The grant date fair value is based upon an option pricing model.

The Founders Shares were granted subject to a performance condition (i.e., consummation of the Business Combination). Compensation expense related to the Founders Shares will be recognized only when the performance condition is probable of occurrence under the applicable accounting literature in this circumstance.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company determined that a Business Combination is not considered probable, and therefore no stock-based compensation expense has been recognized. Stock-based compensation will be recognized at the date a Business Combination is considered probable (i.e., upon completion of a Business Combination) in an amount equal to the number of Founders Shares that ultimately vest multiplied times the grant date fair value per share (unless subsequently modified) less the amount initially received for the purchase of the Founders Shares.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company is included in the consolidated tax return of Figure Technologies, Inc (the “Parent”). The Company calculates the provision for income taxes by using a “separate return” method. Under this method the Company is assumed to file a separate return with the tax authority, thereby reporting its taxable income or loss and paying the applicable tax to, or receiving the appropriate refund from, the Parent. The Company’s current provision is the amount of tax payable or refundable on the basis of a hypothetical, current year, separate return.

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740 Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized. For interim periods, the Company applies the guidance in ASC 740-270.
 
The Company’s effective tax rate of 0% for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and 2021, differs from the statutory tax rate of 21% due primarily to permanent differences related to the change in fair value of warrant liabilities.

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position 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. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in annual period, disclosure and transition.
 
The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. 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 has identified the United States as its only “major” tax jurisdiction. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception. These potential examinations may include questioning the timing and amount of deductions, the nexus of income among various tax jurisdictions and compliance with federal and state tax laws. The Company’s management does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will materially change over the next twelve months.
 
Net Income Per Share of  Common Stock
 
The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, Earnings Per Share. Net income per share of common stock is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. The Company has three classes of stock, redeemable Class A Common Stock, non-redeemable Class B Common Stock and non-redeemable Class L Common Stock. Earnings and losses are shared pro rata between the Class A, Class B and Class L Common Stock. The Company has not considered the effect of warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and the private placement to purchase an aggregate of 12,354,167 shares of common stock in the calculation of diluted income per stock, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted net income per share of common stock is the same as basic net income per share of common stock for the periods presented. Remeasurement associated with the redeemable shares of Class A common stock is excluded from income per share of common stock as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Basic and diluted net income per share of common stock for Class A common stock, Class B common stock and Class L common stock is calculated by dividing net income attributable to the Company by the weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock, Class B common stock and Class L common stock outstanding, allocated proportionally to each class of common stock.
 
Reconciliation of Net Income per Share of Common Stock
 
The Company’s net income is adjusted for the portion of net income that is allocable to each class of common stock. The allocable net income is calculated by multiplying net income by the ratio of weighted average number of shares outstanding attributable to Class A, Class B and Class L common stock to the total weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period. Accordingly, basic and diluted income per share of common stock is calculated as follows:

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 depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurement,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the accompanying condensed balance sheets, primarily due to their short-term nature.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt-Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06”), which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. ASU 2020-06 also removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity-linked contracts to qualify for scope exception, and it simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. The Company early adopted ASU 2020-06 on January 1, 2021. Adoption of the ASU did not impact the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s unaudited condensed financial statements.
 
Note 3 — Initial Public Offering
 
Public Units
 
On February 23, 2021, the Company sold 28,750,000 Units, at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit, which included the full exercise by the underwriters of the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,750,000 Units, at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock, and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant to purchase one share of Class A common stock (the “Public Warrants”).
 
Public Warrants
 
Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of the Company’s Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment as discussed herein. The warrants will become exercisable on the later of 12 months from February 23, 2021, the closing of the Public Offering, or 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination, and will expire five years after the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination, at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.
 
In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per share of Class A common stock (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, (i) in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or any of its respective affiliates, without taking into account any founder shares or shares of Class L common stock held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance, and (ii) to the extent that such issuance is made to the Sponsor or any of its respective affiliates, without taking into account the transfer of founder shares, shares of Class L common stock or private placement warrants by the Sponsor in connection with such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of the initial Business Combination on the date of the consummation of the initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the common stock during the 20 trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates the initial Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price described below in “Redemption of warrants when the price per share of Class A common stock equals or exceeds $18.00” and “Redemption of warrants when the price per share of Class A common stock equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $10.00 per share redemption trigger described below in “Redemption of warrants when the price per share of Class A common stock equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.

The Company will not be obligated to deliver any shares of Class A common stock pursuant to the exercise of a warrant and will have no obligation to settle such warrant exercise unless a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the shares of Class A common stock underlying the warrants is then effective and a prospectus relating thereto is current. No warrant will be exercisable and the Company will not be obligated to issue shares of Class A common stock upon exercise of a warrant unless Class A common stock issuable upon such warrant exercise has been registered, qualified or deemed to be exempt under the securities laws of the state of residence of the registered holder of the warrants. In no event will the Company be required to net cash settle any warrant. In the event that a registration statement is not effective for the exercised warrants, the purchaser of a unit containing such warrant will have paid the full purchase price for the unit solely for the share of Class A common stock underlying such unit.
 
Redemption of Warrants When the Price per Share of Class A Common Stock Equals or Exceeds $18.00
 
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants:
 

in whole and not in part;
 

at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
 

upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption (the “30-day redemption period”); and
 

if, and only if, the last reported sale price of the Class A common stock for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending three trading days before we send the notice of redemption to the warrant holders (which we refer to as the “Reference Value”) equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like and certain issuances of Class A common stock and equity-linked securities).
 
The Company will not redeem the warrants as described above unless a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A common stock is available throughout the 30-day redemption period. If and when the warrants become redeemable, the Company may exercise its redemption right even if unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.
 
Redemption of Warrants When the Price per Share of Class A Common Stock Equals or Exceeds $10.00
 
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants:
 

in whole and not in part;
 

at $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption, provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares determined by reference to the “fair market value” of the Class A common stock (as defined below in the immediately following paragraph) except as otherwise described below;
 

if, and only if, the Reference Value equals or exceeds $10.00 per share (as adjusted per stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like and certain issuances of Class A common stock and equity-linked securities); and
 

if the Reference Value is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like and certain issuances of Class A common stock and equity-linked securities), the private placement warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding public warrants, as described above.
 
The “fair market value” of the Class A common stock for the above purpose shall mean the volume-weighted average price of the Class A common stock as reported during the ten trading days immediately following the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of warrants. The Company will provide our warrant holders with the final fair market value no later than one business day after the ten-trading day period described above ends. In no event will the warrants be exercisable in connection with this redemption feature for more than 0.361 shares of Class A common stock per whole warrant (subject to adjustment).
 
If a registration statement covering the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the 60th business day after the closing of the initial Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. In such event, each holder would pay the exercise price by surrendering the warrants for that number of shares of Class A common stock equal to the lesser of (A) the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of the number of shares of Class A common stock underlying the warrants, multiplied by the excess of the “fair market value” of the Class A common stock over the exercise price of the warrants by (y) the fair market value and (B) 0.361 per whole warrant. The “fair market value” as used in this paragraph shall mean the average last reported sale price of the Class A common stock for the ten trading days ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the notice of exercise is received by the warrant agent. If that exemption, or another exemption, is not available, holders will not be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis.
 
Note 4 — Private Placement
 
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Sponsor purchased an aggregate of 5,166,667 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, for an aggregate purchase price of $7,750,000, in a private placement. Each whole Private Placement Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of the Company’s Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment as discussed herein. A portion of the proceeds from the private placement was added to the proceeds from the IPO held in the Trust. The Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable in certain circumstances and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees. Otherwise, the Private Placement Warrants have terms and provisions that are identical to those of the warrants being sold as part of the Units in the Public Offering.
 
The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants sold in the IPO except that the Private Placement Warrants, so long as they are held by the initial stockholders or its permitted transferees, (i) they will not be redeemable by the Company for cash, (ii) they (including the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of these warrants) may not, subject to certain limited exceptions, be transferred, assigned or sold until 30 days after the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination, and (iii) they may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by holders other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by the holders on the same basis as the warrants included in the Units being sold in the IPO.

Note 5 — Related Party Transactions
 
Founder Shares
 
In December 2020, the Company’s Sponsor purchased 4,107,143 shares of Class B common stock and 8,214,286 shares of Class L common stock for a capital contribution of $25,000, or approximately $0.002 per share. In January 2021, the Company’s Sponsor surrendered its Class B and Class L shares, and the Company reissued to the Sponsor 3,194,444 shares of Class B common stock (the “founder shares”) and 9,126,984 shares of Class L common stock, with no return of capital or payment by the Sponsor, resulting in the Sponsor holding 3,194,444 shares of Class B common stock and 9,126,984 shares of Class L common stock, including an aggregate of up to 416,667 shares of Class B common stock and up to 1,190,476 shares of Class L common stock subject to forfeiture, respectively, if the over-allotment option was not exercised by the underwriters in full. All shares of common stock and associated amounts have been retroactively restated. On February 12, 2021, our sponsor transferred 20,000 shares of Class B common stock to each of our three independent directors. As a result of the underwriters’ election to fully exercise their over-allotment option on February 23, 2021, none of the Class B shares or Class L shares are subject to forfeiture.
 
With certain limited exceptions, the Founder shares and Class L shares are not transferable, assignable or saleable (except to the Company’s officers and directors and other persons or entities affiliated with the Sponsor, including their respective limited partners, each of whom will be subject to the same transfer restrictions) until the earlier of (A) one year after the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination or (B) subsequent to the Company’s initial Business Combination, (x) if the reported closing price of 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 Company’s initial Business Combination or (y) the date, following the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination, on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.
 
Promissory Note — Related Party
 
On December 22, 2020, Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor for an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the IPO. This loan was non-interest bearing and payable on the earlier of December 31, 2021 or the completion of the IPO. During the period from January 1, 2021 to February 23, 2021, the Company had borrowed $115,492 under the promissory note. On February 25, 2021, the Company paid the note balance in full from the proceeds of the IPO, and the note is no longer available to be drawn upon.
 
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 officers and directors may loan the Company funds (“Working Capital Loans”), as discussed in Note 1. 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 the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds from the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Up to $2,000,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants at a price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants, including as to exercise price, exercisability and exercise period.  At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, no Working Capital Loans were outstanding.

Advance from Related Party

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, an affiliate of the Sponsor paid for expenses related to the Company in the amount of $22,657.  These amounts were expensed during the quarter and are reflected in the accompanying condensed balance sheet as an Advance from related party as of March 31, 2022.
 
Note 6 — Commitments and Contingencies
 
Registration Rights
 
The Sponsor will have rights to require the Company to register any of its securities held by them for resale under the Securities Act pursuant to a registration and stockholder rights agreement to be signed prior to or on the effective date of the Public Offering. These holders will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form registration demands, that the Company register such securities for sale under the Securities Act. In addition, the holders of the founder shares, Class L shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of working capital loans (and any shares of Class A common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of working capital loans and upon conversion of the Founder shares and Class L shares) will have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination and rights to require the Company to register for resale such securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act.
 
Underwriting Agreement
 
The underwriter had a 45-day option from the date of the IPO to purchase up to an aggregate of 3,750,000 additional Units at the public offering price less the underwriting commissions to cover over-allotments, if any. On February 23, 2021, the underwriter fully exercised the over-allotment option, and was paid a fixed underwriting discount of 2% of the gross proceeds of the IPO, or $5,750,000 in aggregate.
 
The underwriters are entitled to a deferred underwriting fee of 3.5% of the gross proceeds of the IPO, or $10,062,500 in the aggregate and is included in the condensed balance sheets at March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters 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.
 
Note 7 — Stockholders’ Deficit
 
Preferred Stock The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $0.0001 and with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.
 
Class A Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue a total of 100,000,000 shares of Class A common stock at par value of $0.01 each. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no shares issued and outstanding, excluding 28,750,000 shares subject to possible redemption.
 
Class B Common Stock The Company is authorized to issue a total of 10,000,000 shares of Class B common stock at par value of $0.0001 per share. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 3,194,444 shares issued and outstanding.
 
The Company’s sponsor, directors and officers have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell their founder shares until the earlier to occur of (A) one year after the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination or (B) subsequent to the Company’s initial Business Combination, (x) if the reported closing price of the Company’s 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 Company’s initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange, or other similar transaction that results in all of its stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.
 
The shares of Class B common stock will automatically convert into shares of the Company’s Class A common stock at the time of its initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment pursuant to certain anti-dilution rights, as described herein. In the case that additional shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities are issued or deemed issued in connection with the Company’s initial Business Combination, the ratio at which shares of Class B common stock shall convert into shares of Class A common stock will be adjusted (unless the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Class B common stock agree to waive such adjustment with respect to any such issuance or deemed issuance) so that the number of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of all shares of Class B common stock will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-converted basis, 10% of the sum of (i) the total number of all shares of common stock outstanding upon the completion of the Public Offering, plus (ii) the total number of shares of Class A common stock and equity-linked securities issued or deemed issued in connection with or in connection with the initial Business Combination, excluding any shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial business combination and any units or warrants issued to our sponsor or its affiliates upon conversion of Working Capital Loans; provided that such conversion of founder shares will never occur on a less than one for one basis.
 
Prior to the initial Business Combination, only holders of the Company’s Class B common stock will have the right to vote on the election of directors. With respect to any other matter submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholder, holders of record of the Class A common stock and holders of record of the Class B common stock will vote together as a single class, with each share of common stock entitling the holder to one vote except as required by law.
 
Class L Common Stock The Company is authorized to issue a total of 15,000,000 shares of Class L common stock at par value of $0.0001 each. In December 2020, the Company issued 8,214,286 shares of Class L common stock to the Sponsor for approximately $0.002 per share. In January 2021, the Sponsor surrendered its Class L shares and the Company reissued 9,126,984 shares of Class L common stock to the Sponsor with no return of capital or payment by the Sponsor resulting in the Sponsor holding 9,126,984 shares of Class L common stock for approximately $0.002 per share. All shares of common stock and associated amounts have been retroactively restated. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 9,126,984 shares issued and outstanding in stockholders deficit.
 
The Class L common stock shall have no voting rights and will convert into shares of Class A common stock following the initial Business Combination to the extent certain triggering vesting events occur. The Class L common stock will vest in four equal tranches upon achieving share performance targets. If between the consummation of our initial business combination and the ten year anniversary of the initial Business Combination the closing price of the Companys Class A common stock equals or exceeds specified per share trading price targets for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period (the four vesting price targets equal $12.50 (First Price Vesting), $15.00 (Second Price Vesting), $17.50 (Third Price Vesting), and $20.00 (Fourth Price Vesting)), one-fourth of the Class L common stocks will automatically convert into Class A common stocks on a 1-for-1 basis. For example, if fifteen months following the consummation of the initial Business Combination the closing price of the shares of Class A common stock equals or exceeds $15.00 but does not exceed $17.50 for 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period, both the First Price Vesting and Second Price Vesting target achievements will be met, resulting in a total of 3,968,254 Class L Shares converting into 3,968,254 shares of Class A common stock, representing 1,984,127 shares associated with the First Price Vesting and 1,984,127 shares associated with the Second Price Vesting (as adjusted for share sub-divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like).
 
For purposes of the foregoing price vesting targets, if the Company consummates any liquidation, merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction after its initial business combination and before the tenth anniversary of its initial business combination (a Strategic Transaction) which results in all of the public stockholders having the right to exchange their common stock for cash, securities or other property, then the Company’s board of directors will determine in good faith the effective price per share of Class A common stock in such Strategic Transaction. This effective price will dictate how many remaining shares of Class L common stock convert on a one-for-one basis to shares of Class A common stock, based on the foregoing price vesting targets.

For example, if the Company consummates a Strategic Transaction and the First and Second Price Vesting targets have previously been achieved and the effective price in such Strategic Transaction is determined to be $17.50, then 1,984,127 shares of Class L common stock will convert at the closing of such Strategic Transaction on a one-for-one basis to 1,984,127 shares of Class A common stock.
 
Further, for example, if the Company consummates a Strategic Transaction and the First and Second Price Vesting targets have previously not been achieved and the effective price in such Strategic Transaction is determined to be $17.50, then 5,952,381 shares of Class L common stock will convert at the closing of such Strategic Transaction on a one-for-one basis to 5,952,381 shares of Class A common stock.
 
In contrast, if the Company consummates a Strategic Transaction and the First and Second Price Vesting targets have previously been achieved and the effective price in such Strategic Transaction is determined to be only $14.00, then under the Strategic Transaction threshold, no shares of Class L common stock will convert because no additional price vesting target has been achieved; thus, none of the remaining shares of Class L common stock will convert to shares of Class A common stock at the closing of such Strategic Transaction.

Note 8 — Fair Value Measurements
 
The Company follows the guidance in ASC 820 for its financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at each reporting period, and non-financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at least annually.
 
The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:

Level 1 —
Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access. Valuation adjustments and block discounts are not being applied. Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these securities does not entail a significant degree of judgment.

Level 2 —
Valuations based on (i) quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities, (ii) quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets, (iii) inputs other than quoted prices for the assets or liabilities, or (iv) inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by market through correlation or other means.

Level 3 —
Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.
 
The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

The Warrants are accounted for as liabilities in accordance with ASC 815-40 and are presented within warrant liabilities on the Condensed Balance Sheets. The warrant liabilities are measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis, with changes in fair value presented within change in fair value of warrant liability in the Condensed Statements of Operations.
 
The Company established the initial fair value of the Public Warrants and Private Warrants on February 23, 2021, the date of the Company’s Initial Public Offering, using a Monte Carlo simulation model. The Warrants were classified as Level 3 at the initial measurement date due to the use of unobservable inputs. 

On February 23, 2021, the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants was determined to be $1.53 per warrant. The following table presents the change in the fair value of Level 3 warrant liabilities for the three months ended March 31, 2021:

Beginning with the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the Public Warrants were reclassified from Level 3 to Level 1 and the Private Placement Warrants were reclassified from Level 3 to Level 2, due to certain “make whole” provisions in the warrant agreement. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 the Company used the quoted market price of the Public Warrants as the fair value of the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants.

Note 9 — Subsequent Events

The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date up to the date that the unaudited condensed financial statements were issued. Based upon this review, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the unaudited condensed financial statements.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

References to the “Company,” “Figure Acquisition Corp. I.,” “our,” “us” or “we” refer to Figure Acquisition Corp. I. The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed 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 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 December 15, 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”).

Our Sponsor is Fintech Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. The registration statement for the Initial Public Offering was declared effective on February 18, 2021. On February 23, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 28,750,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $287.5 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $16.3 million, inclusive of approximately $10.1 million in deferred underwriting commissions.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the Private Placement of 5,166,667 Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant to our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds to us of approximately $7.75 million.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement,  $287.5 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain of the proceeds of the Private Placement was placed in the Trust Account and was invested in permitted United States “government securities” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, 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 that invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations.

Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination.

We will only have 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or February 23, 2023, to complete our initial Business Combination (the “Combination Period”). If we do not complete a Business Combination within this period of time, we will (i) cease all operations except for the purposes of winding up; (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible, but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares for a per share pro rata portion of the Trust Account, including interest and not previously released to us to fund our working capital requirements (subject to an annual limit of $500,000) (less taxes payable and up to $100,000 of such net interest to pay dissolution expenses) and (iii) as promptly as possible following such redemption, dissolve and liquidate the balance of our net assets to our remaining stockholders, as part of our plan of dissolution and liquidation. Our Sponsor and our executive officers and independent director nominees (the “initial stockholders”) entered into a letter agreement with us, pursuant to which they have waived their rights to participate in any redemption with respect to their Founder Shares; however, if the initial stockholders or any of our officers, directors or affiliates acquire shares of common stock in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to a pro rata share of the Trust Account upon our redemption or liquidation in the event we do not complete a Business Combination within the required time period. 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 less than the Initial Public Offering price per Unit in the Initial Public Offering.

Results of Operations

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had a net income of approximately $5.4 million, which included a loss from operations of $0.4 million, and offset mainly by a gain from the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $5.7 million and interest earned on marketable securities held in trust account of $0.1 million.
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had a net income of approximately $1.9 million, which included a loss from operations of $0.1 million, offering cost expense allocated to warrants of $0.6 million, the fair value of private warrants in excess of proceeds received of $0.2 million offset by a gain from the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $2.6 million.

Our business activities from inception to March 31, 2022 consisted primarily of our formation and completing our IPO, and since the offering, our activity has been limited to identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition targets for a Business Combination.

Liquidity, Capital Resources, and Going Concern

As of March 31, 2022, we had approximately $0.5 million in our operating bank account and working capital, net of franchise tax payable of approximately $0.4 million.
 
The Company’s liquidity needs up to February 23, 2021 had been satisfied through a capital contribution from the Sponsor of $25,000 (see Note 5) for the Founder shares and Class L shares, and the loan under an unsecured promissory note from the Sponsor of up to $300,000 which was paid in full on February 23, 2021 from the IPO proceeds (see Note 5).

Subsequent to the consummation of the IPO, the Company’s liquidity needs have been satisfied through the net proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, provide us working capital loans. Additionally, an affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor entered into a commitment letter with the Company whereby the affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor agreed to provide working capital loans sufficient for the Company to satisfy its obligation as they come due until the earlier of: (a) the completion of the initial Business Combination, or (b) liquidation. Any such working capital loan under the commitment letter will be repaid to the affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor by the Company upon the completion of the initial Business Combination or, in the event of liquidation prior to the completion of the initial Business Combination, forgiven by the affiliate of the Company’s Sponsor upon liquidation. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no amounts outstanding under any working capital loan and we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

If we do not consummate an initial business combination by February 23, 2023, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Management has determined that the mandatory liquidation, should an initial business combination not occur, and potential subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The unaudited condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and has concluded that the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the balance sheet. The unaudited condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

In February 2022, the Russian Federation and Belarus commenced a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including the United States, have instituted economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and Belarus. Further, the impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy are not determinable as of the date of these financial statements and the specific impact on the Company's financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these financial statements.

Contractual Obligations

We do not have any long-term debt obligations, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations, purchase obligations or long-term liabilities

Registration Rights

The initial stockholders and holders of the Private Placement Warrants will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement. The initial stockholders and holders of the Private Placement Warrants will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form registration demands, that register such securities for sale under the Securities Act. In addition, these holders will have “piggy-back” registration rights to include their securities in other registration statements filed by us. We will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement

We agreed to pay the underwriters an additional fee (the “Deferred Underwriting Fees”) of 3.5% of the gross proceeds of the IPO, or $10,062,500 in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that we complete a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Critical Accounting Policies

This management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our unaudited condensed financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these unaudited condensed financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in our unaudited condensed financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to fair value of financial instruments and accrued expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

There have been no significant changes in our critical accounting policies as discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 as filed with the SEC on April 13, 2022.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt-Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06”), which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. ASU 2020-06 also removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity-linked contracts to qualify for scope exception, and it simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. The Company early adopted ASU 2020-06 on January 1, 2021. Adoption of the ASU did not impact the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

We do not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our unaudited condensed financial statements.

Inflation

We do not believe that inflation had a material impact on our business, revenues or operating results during the period presented.

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 unaudited condensed financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

Additionally, we intend to rely on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, we will 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 Public Company Accounting Oversight Board 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
 
Disclosure controls are procedures that are designed with the objective of ensuring that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this Report, is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time period specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls are also designed with the objective of ensuring that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
 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 such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2021, due to the previous material weakness in our internal controls over financial reporting relating to the proper classification of our warrants, as described in “Item 4. Controls and Procedures” included in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q as filed with the SEC on May 24, 2021 and August 13, 2021, and due to the restatements of our February 23, 2021, March 31, 2021, and June 30, 2021 financial statements (the “restatements”) regarding the classification of redeemable Class A common stock, which combined, constitute a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. In light of this material weakness, we performed additional analysis as deemed necessary to ensure that our unaudited interim financial statements were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Accordingly, management believes that the unaudited condensed financial statements included in this Quarterly Report present fairly in all material respects our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the period presented.

It is noted that the non-cash adjustments to the financial statements do not impact the amounts previously reported for our cash and cash equivalents or total assets. In light of this material weakness, we performed additional analysis as deemed necessary to ensure that our unaudited interim financial statements were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022 covered by this Quarterly Report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

To respond to the material weakness described above, we have devoted, and plan to continue to devote, significant effort and resources to the remediation and improvement of our internal control over financial reporting. While we have processes to identify and appropriately apply applicable accounting requirements, we plan to enhance our system of evaluating and implementing the complex accounting standards that apply to our financial statements. Our plans at this time include providing enhanced access to accounting literature, research materials and documents and increased communication among our personnel and third-party professionals with whom we consult regarding complex accounting applications. The elements of our remediation plan can only be accomplished over time, and we can offer no assurance that these initiatives will ultimately have the intended effects.

Item 1A.
Risk Factors.

Except as set forth below, as of the date of this Quarterly Report, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021, except as described below. Any of these factors could result in a significant or material adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. Additional risk factors not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business or results of operations. We may disclose changes to such risk factors or disclose additional risk factors from time to time in our future filings with the SEC.

After our initial business combination, substantially all of our assets may be located in a foreign country and substantially all of our revenue will be derived from our operations in such country. Accordingly, our results of operations and prospects will be subject, to a significant extent, to the economic, political and legal policies, developments and conditions in the country in which we operate.

The economic, political and social conditions, as well as government policies, of the country in which our operations are located could affect our business. Economic growth could be uneven, both geographically and among various sectors of the economy and such growth may not be sustained in the future. If in the future such country’s economy experiences a downturn or grows at a slower rate than expected, there may be less demand for spending in certain industries. A decrease in demand for spending in certain industries could materially and adversely affect our ability to find an attractive target business with which to consummate our initial business combination and if we effect our initial business combination, the ability of that target business to become profitable.

We are currently operating in a period of economic uncertainty and capital markets disruption, which has been significantly impacted by geopolitical instability due to the ongoing military conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Our business, financial condition and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected by any negative impact on the global economy and capital markets resulting from the conflict in Ukraine or any other geopolitical tensions.

Russian military actions and the resulting sanctions could adversely affect the global economy and financial markets and lead to instability and lack of liquidity in capital markets, potentially making it more difficult for us to obtain additional funds.
 
Any of the above mentioned factors could affect our business, prospects, financial condition, and operating results. The extent and duration of the military action, sanctions and resulting market disruptions are impossible to predict, but could be substantial. Any such disruptions may also magnify the impact of other risks described in the Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Changes in laws or regulations, or a failure to comply with any laws and regulations, may adversely affect our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our Business Combination and results of operations.

We are subject to laws and regulations enacted by national, regional and local governments. In particular, we are required to comply with certain SEC and other legal requirements. Compliance with, and monitoring of, applicable laws and regulations may be difficult, time consuming and costly. Those laws and regulations and their interpretation and application may also change from time to time and those changes could have a material adverse effect on the business, investments and results of our operations. In addition, a failure to comply with applicable laws or regulations, as interpreted and applied, could have a material adverse effect on our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our Business Combination and results of operations.

On March 30, 2022, the SEC issued proposed rules (the “2022 Proposed Rules”) relating to, among other items, enhancing disclosures in business combination transactions involving SPACs and private operating companies; amending the financial statement requirements applicable to transactions involving shell companies; effectively limiting the use of projections in SEC filings in connection with proposed business combination transactions; increasing the potential liability of certain participants in proposed business combination transactions; and the extent to which SPACs could become subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act of 1940. These 2022 Proposed Rules, if adopted, whether in the form proposed or in revised form, and certain positions and legal conclusions expressed by the SEC in connection with the 2022 Proposed Rules may materially adversely affect our ability to negotiate and complete our Business Combination and may increase the costs and time related thereto.

Our search for a Business Combination, and any target business with which we may ultimately consummate a Business Combination, may be materially adversely affected by the geopolitical conditions resulting from the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia and subsequent sanctions against Russia, Belarus and related individuals and entities and the status of debt and equity markets, as well as protectionist legislation in our target markets.

United States and global markets are experiencing volatility and disruption following the escalation of geopolitical tensions and the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022. In response to such invasion, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) deployed additional military forces to eastern Europe, and the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have announced various sanctions and restrictive actions against Russia, Belarus and related individuals and entities, including the removal of certain financial institutions from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) payment system. Certain countries, including the United States, have also provided and may continue to provide military aid or other assistance to Ukraine during the ongoing military conflict, increasing geopolitical tensions with Russia. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the resulting measures that have been taken, and could be taken in the future, by NATO, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have created global security concerns that could have a lasting impact on regional and global economies. Although the length and impact of the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine is highly unpredictable, the conflict could lead to market disruptions, including significant volatility in commodity prices, credit and capital markets, as well as supply chain interruptions. Additionally, Russian military actions and the resulting sanctions could adversely affect the global economy and financial markets and lead to instability and lack of liquidity in capital markets.

Any of the abovementioned factors, or any other negative impact on the global economy, capital markets or other geopolitical conditions resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and subsequent sanctions, could adversely affect our search for a Business Combination and any target business with which we may ultimately consummate a Business Combination. The extent and duration of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, resulting sanctions and any related market disruptions are impossible to predict, but could be substantial, particularly if current or new sanctions continue for an extended period of time or if geopolitical tensions result in expanded military operations on a global scale. Any such disruptions may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K. If these disruptions or other matters of global concern continue for an extensive period of time, our ability to consummate a Business Combination, or the operations of a target business with which we may ultimately consummate a Business Combination, may be materially adversely affected.
 
In addition, the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia, and the impact of sanctions against Russia and the potential for retaliatory acts from Russia, could result in increased cyber-attacks against U.S. companies.

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

In December 2020, our Sponsor purchased 4,107,143 shares of Class B common stock and 8,214,286 shares of Class L common stock for a capital contribution of $25,000, or approximately $0.002 per share. In January 2021, the sponsor surrendered its Class B and Class L shares, and we reissued to the sponsor 3,194,444 shares of Class B common stock and 9,126,984 shares of Class L common stock, with no return of capital or payment by the sponsor, resulting in the sponsor holding 3,194,444 shares of Class B common stock and 9,126,984 shares of Class L common stock with an effective purchase price of approximately $0.002 per share. In February, 2021, our sponsor transferred 20,000 shares of Class B common stock to each of our independent directors.  Prior to the initial investment in the company of $25,000 by our Sponsor, the Company had no assets, tangible or intangible. The per share price was determined by dividing the amount of cash contributed to the company by the number of founder shares issued.

Our Sponsor is an accredited investor for purposes of Rule 501 of Regulation D. Each of the equity holders in our Sponsor is an accredited investor under Rule 501 of Regulation D. The sole business of our Sponsor is to act as the Company’s sponsor in connection with this offering. The limited liability company agreement of our Sponsor provides that its membership interests may only be transferred to our officers or directors or other persons affiliated with our Sponsor, or in connection with estate planning transfers.

Simultaneously with the closing of our Initial Public Offering, pursuant to the Private Placement Warrants Purchase Agreement, the Company completed the private sale of an aggregate of 5,166,667 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to our Sponsor at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $7,750,000. The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants, so long as they are held by our Sponsor or its permitted transferees, (i) are not redeemable by the Company, (ii) may not (including the Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of such Private Placement Warrants), subject to certain limited exceptions, be transferred, assigned or sold by such holders until 30 days after the completion of the Company’s initial business combination, (iii) may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis and (iv) will be entitled to registration rights. No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sale. The issuance of the Private Placement Warrants was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
