FORTRESS CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.    Description of Organization and Business Operations

Fortress Capital Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company on August 27, 2020. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (“Business Combination”). Although the Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination, the Company intends to capitalize on the ability of its management team to identify, acquire and operate a business that may provide opportunities for attractive risk-adjusted returns. The Company is an emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.

All activity from August 27, 2020 (inception) through March 31, 2022 relates to the Company’s formation, the completion of the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) and, since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a Business Combination candidate. 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 and dividend income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering.
    
The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on January 12, 2021. On January 15, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 40,000,000 units (“Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), which included the issuance of 5,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $400,000,000 and incurring offering costs of $22,764,787, inclusive of $14,000,000 in deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 4). Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-fifth of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 5).


6



FORTRESS CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Substantially concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated a private placement (“Private Placement”) of 7,333,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants” and together with the “Public Warrants”, the “Warrants”), at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, with the Company’s sponsor, Fortress Capital Acquisition Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds of $11,000,000 (see Note 3). The Private Placement Warrants had an estimated fair value of $16,502,271 as of the closing of the Initial Public Offering, resulting in a $5,502,271 non-cash loss to the Company equal to the fair value in excess of cash received for the Private Placement Warrants.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, $400,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) of the aggregate net cash proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a U.S.-based trust account (the “Trust Account”), maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $596,443 in cash held outside of the Trust Account. The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company’s initial Business Combination must be with one or more operating businesses or assets with a fair market value equal to at least 80% of the assets held in the Trust Account (net of amounts disbursed to management for working capital purposes, if any, and excluding the amount of any deferred underwriting discount held in trust) at the time of the Company signing a definitive agreement in connection with its initial Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”).

FORTRESS CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP.

The Company will provide its shareholders of Public Shares (“Public Shareholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a general meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company. If, however, shareholder approval of the transaction is required by applicable law or stock exchange listing requirement, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or other reasons, it will: (i) conduct the redemptions in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to Regulation 14A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which regulates the solicitation of proxies, and not pursuant to the tender offer rules; and (ii) file proxy materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Public Shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro-rata portion of the amount in the Trust Account (approximately $10.00 per share as of March 31, 2022), plus any pro-rata interest and dividends earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay for the Company’s tax obligations, calculated as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Business Combination. The per-share amount to be distributed to Public Shareholders who redeem their Public Shares will not be reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company will pay to the underwriters (as discussed in Note 4). The Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association provides that in no event will the Company redeem its Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 upon consummation of the initial Business Combination and after payment of the deferred underwriting commissions. In such case, the Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon such consummation of a Business Combination and a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required by applicable law or stock exchange listing requirements and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the SEC, and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. Additionally, each Public Shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares without voting, and if they do vote, irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the initial shareholders (as defined below) have agreed to vote their Founder Shares (as defined in Note 3) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of a Business Combination. In addition, the initial shareholders have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association provides that a Public Shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Exchange Act), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% or more of the Class A ordinary shares sold in the Initial Public Offering, without the prior consent of the Company.

The Company’s Sponsor, officers and directors (the “initial shareholders”) have agreed not to propose an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association that would affect the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination, unless the Company provides the Public Shareholders with the opportunity to redeem their Class A ordinary shares in conjunction with any such amendment.

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months (January 2023) from the closing of the Initial Public Offering (the “Combination Period”), the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but no more than ten business days thereafter, redeem 100% of the outstanding Public Shares which redemption will completely extinguish Public Shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any) and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining shareholder and the Company’s board of directors, proceed to commence a voluntary liquidation and thereby a formal dissolution of the Company, subject in each case to its obligations to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of applicable law.

In connection with the redemption of 100% of the Company’s outstanding Public Shares for a portion of the funds held in the Trust Account, each holder will receive a full pro-rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account, plus any pro-rata interest and dividends 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 and dividends to pay dissolution expenses).
    
The initial shareholders have agreed to waive their liquidation rights with respect to the Founder Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the initial shareholders should acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 4) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Company’s Public Shares.

In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only $10.00 per share initially held in the Trust Account (or less than that in certain circumstances). In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to 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 discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account. This liability will not apply with respect to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account or to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all third parties, service providers (other than the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

Liquidity and capital resources, mandatory redemption date and going concern

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $596,443 in cash and $887,965 of accounts payable and accrued expenses. As such, the Company does not believe it has sufficient liquidity to meet its current and future estimated financial obligations. The Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”) (see Note 3).

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination by January 15, 2023, the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, unless there is an extension on the Company’s period to complete a Business Combination. In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 205-40, “Presentation of Financial Statements — Going Concern,” the requirement to complete a Business Combination by January 15, 2023 raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustment that might be necessary if the Company were unable to continue as a going concern.

Separate trading of Class A ordinary shares and Public Warrants

On March 2, 2021, the Company announced that, commencing March 5, 2021, the holders of the Company’s Units may elect to separately trade the Class A ordinary shares and Public Warrants comprising the Units. Those Units not separated will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) under the symbol “FCAX.U”, and each of the Class A ordinary shares and Public Warrants that were separated trade on the NYSE under the symbols “FCAX” and “FCAX WS”, respectively.

COVID-19

An outbreak of respiratory disease which caused a global pandemic continues to impact global markets. This coronavirus has resulted in enhanced health screenings, healthcare service preparation and delivery, quarantines, cancellations, disruptions to markets, supply chains and customer activity, as well as general concern and uncertainty. Although a number of vaccines for COVID-19 have been developed and are in the process of being deployed in certain countries, including the United States, the timing for widespread vaccination is uncertain, and these vaccines may be less effective against new mutated strains of the virus. The impact of this coronavirus continues to evolve and is affecting the economies of many nations, individual companies and markets in general and may continue to last for an extended period of time.

Management will continue to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and while the virus could have an adverse effect on the future financial results, cash flows 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.

2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X of the SEC. Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected through December 31, 2022 or any future periods. These unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed on Form 10-K with the SEC on March 16, 2022.

Emerging growth company

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a non-binding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder 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 the unaudited condensed financial statements in conformity with U.S. 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Investments held in trust account

The proceeds held in the Trust Account may only be invested (i) in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 185 days or less or (ii) in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations. The investments held in the Trust Account are currently invested in a U.S. Treasury securities money market fund, which are presented at fair value on the condensed balance sheet. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these U.S. Treasury securities is included in interest and dividend income in the unaudited condensed statements of operations. The Company had $400,085,168 and $400,045,051 investments held in the Trust Account as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Consistent with our desire to comply with the terms of the proposed safe harbor outlined in the 2022 Proposed Rule, we may elect to hold such proceeds in a non-interest bearing account. If we make such an election, the funds held in the Trust Account will not increase, which will limit the funds available for payment of taxes and dissolution expenses or for distribution to public shareholders.

Offering costs

Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred that are directly related to the Initial Public Offering of Units and totaled $22,764,787, inclusive of $14,000,000 in deferred underwriting commissions and $464,325 in unpaid offering costs. Offering costs of $21,835,628 were related to the issuance of Class A ordinary shares and charged to temporary equity and $929,159 of the offering costs were related to the warrant liabilities and charged to the unaudited condensed statement of operations upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering.

Income taxes

The Company complies with the accounting and reporting requirements of FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes,” (“ASC 740”) which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.


13



FORTRESS CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company’s management determined that the Cayman Islands is the Company’s only major tax jurisdiction. 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, respectively. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. There is currently no taxation imposed on income by the Government of the Cayman Islands. In accordance with Cayman federal income tax regulations, income taxes are not levied on the Company. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s financial statements.

Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption

The Company accounts for its Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity”. Class A ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A ordinary shares (including Class A ordinary shares that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A ordinary shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. The Company’s Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 40,000,000 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption at the redemption value were presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed balance sheets (see Note 6).

Net income (loss) per ordinary share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share”. The Company’s unaudited condensed statements of operations include a presentation of net income (loss) per ordinary share in a manner similar to the two-class method of net income (loss) per ordinary share. Earnings and losses are shared pro-rata between the two classes of shares. Remeasurement adjustment associated with the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Net income (loss) per ordinary share, basic and diluted for Class A ordinary shares for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were calculated by dividing (i) the allocation of net income of $5,653,624 and $1,316,742, respectively, by (ii) the weighted average number of Class A ordinary shares outstanding for the respective periods.

FORTRESS CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Net income (loss) per ordinary share, basic and diluted for Class B ordinary shares for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were calculated by dividing (i) the allocation of net income of $1,413,406 and $329,186, respectively, by (ii) the weighted average number of Class B ordinary shares outstanding for the respective periods.

The Company has not considered the effect of the Warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering (including the exercise of the over-allotment option) and Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 15,333,333 Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted net income (loss) per share, since the exercise of the Warrants into Class A ordinary shares is contingent upon the occurrence of future events (see Note 5). As a result, diluted net income (loss) per ordinary share is the same as basic net income (loss) per ordinary share for the periods presented.

Concentration of credit risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist of a cash account in a financial institution which at times may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, the Company had not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.

Fair value measurements

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

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

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

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

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

Warrant liabilities

The Company accounts for its outstanding Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants in accordance with the guidance contained in FASB ASC Subtopic 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity,” and determined that the Warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder. As such, each warrant must be recorded as a liability and is subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date and any change in fair value is recorded in the Company’s unaudited condensed statements of operations. One of the more significant accounting estimates included in these unaudited condensed financial statements is the determination of the fair value of the warrant liabilities.

Recent accounting pronouncements

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

3.    Related Party Transactions

Founder shares

In September 2020, the Company issued an aggregate of 8,625,000 Class B ordinary shares to the Sponsor (the “Founder Shares”) in exchange for an aggregate capital contribution of $25,000. On January 12, 2021, the Company effected a share dividend with respect to the Class B ordinary shares, resulting in 10,000,000 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding. The Sponsor had agreed to forfeit an aggregate of up to 1,250,000 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters. On January 15, 2021, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full. As a result, the 1,250,000 Founder Shares were no longer subject to forfeiture. The Founder Shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares upon the consummation of a Business Combination, on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment (see Note 5).

The initial shareholders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earliest of (a) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination, (b) subsequent to the initial Business Combination, if the last reported sale price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination, and (c) following the completion of the initial Business Combination, such future date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s Public Shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property. In January 2021, the Sponsor transferred 25,000 Founder Shares each to two independent directors of the Company. In March 2022, the Sponsor transferred 25,000 Founder Shares to an independent director of the Company. Subsequent to these transfers, the Sponsor held 9,925,000 Founder Shares.

Private placement warrants

Substantially concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor purchased an aggregate 7,333,333 Private Placement Warrants in the Private Placement. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors have agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Private Placement Warrants until 30 days after the completion of the Business Combination.

Note payable—related party

Prior to the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor loaned the Company an aggregate of $287,250 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note. The promissory note was non-interest bearing, unsecured and due on the earlier of July 31, 2021 or the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Company repaid the promissory note in full on January 14, 2021.

Office space and related support services

During January 2021, the Company entered into an agreement with an affiliate of the Sponsor to pay a monthly fee of $20,000 for office space and related support services. Upon completion of the initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company incurred and paid $60,000 and $52,258, respectively, in expenses for services provided by an affiliate of the Sponsor in connection with the aforementioned agreement.

Related party loans

The Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required. If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company may repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants at a conversion price of $1.50 per warrant of the post-business combination entity. The terms of the warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. There were no Working Capital Loans outstanding as of March 31, 2022.

4.    Commitments and Contingencies

Registration rights

The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed prior to the closing date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the consummation of a Business Combination. However, the registration rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable lock-up period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting agreement

The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 5,000,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at the price paid by the underwriters in the Initial Public Offering. The underwriters exercised their over-allotment in full concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per Unit, or $8,000,000 paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. Additionally, a deferred underwriting discount of $0.35 per Unit, or $14,000,000 will be payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

5.    Warrant Liabilities

The Company has outstanding Public Warrants to purchase an aggregate of 8,000,000 of the Company’s ordinary shares and outstanding Private Placement Warrants to purchase an aggregate of 7,333,333 of the Company’s ordinary shares (including warrants issued in connection with the exercise of the over-allotment option).

The change in fair value of the warrant liabilities is summarized as follows:
Warrant liabilities as of December 31, 2021$13,573,333 
Decrease in fair value of warrant liabilities               (7,429,266)

Warrants—Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional Public Warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Public Warrants will trade. Each whole Public Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination and (b) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering; provided in each case that the Company has an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants and a current prospectus relating to them is available. The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 15 business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination, the Company will use its best efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement covering the issuance of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Company will use its best efforts to cause the same to become effective within 60 business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration or redemption of the warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. If the Class A ordinary shares, at the time of any exercise of a warrant, is not listed on a national securities exchange such that it satisfies the definition of a “covered security” under Section (18)(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may require warrant holders who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. If a registration statement covering the Class A ordinary shares 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.

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that (i) the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions, (ii) the Private Placement Warrants will not be redeemable by the Company (except under scenario 2 below) so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or such purchasers’ permitted transferees, (iii) the Private Placement Warrants may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis, and (iv) the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants are entitled to registration rights. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial shareholders or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company in all redemption scenarios and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The exercise price and number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances. If (i) the Company issues additional Class A ordinary shares 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 ordinary share, (ii) the aggregate proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for funding of the Company’s initial business combination on the date of the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination (net of redemptions) and (iii) the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares during the 20 day trading period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates its 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 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 price will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to the higher of the Market Value and the newly issued price. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the warrants. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. In such a situation, the warrants would expire worthless.

6.    Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

The Company’s Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of future events. Pursuant to the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, the Company is authorized to issue 200,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holder of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 40,000,000 Class A ordinary shares outstanding, all of which were subject to possible redemption.

7.    Shareholders’ Equity

Class A ordinary shares—Pursuant to the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, the Company is authorized to issue 200,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share on each matter on which they are entitled to vote. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 40,000,000 Class A ordinary shares issued and outstanding and all Class A ordinary shares were subject to possible redemption and included in temporary equity (see Note 6).

Class B ordinary shares—Pursuant to the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, the Company is authorized to issue 20,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class B ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share on each matter on which they are entitled to vote. The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares at the time of the consummation of the initial Business Combination, on a one-for-one basis. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 10,000,000 Class B ordinary shares, respectively, issued and outstanding.

Only holders of the Founder Shares will have the right to elect all of the Company’s directors prior to the initial Business Combination. Otherwise, holders of Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders except as required by law or the applicable rules of the NYSE then in effect.

In the case that additional Class A ordinary shares, or equity-linked securities, are issued or deemed issued in excess of the amounts sold in the Initial Public Offering and related to the closing of the initial Business Combination, the ratio at which the Class B ordinary shares shall convert into Class A ordinary shares will be adjusted (unless the holders of a majority of the outstanding Class B ordinary shares agree to waive such anti-dilution adjustment with respect to any such issuance or deemed issuance) so that the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Class B ordinary shares will equal, in the aggregate, 20% of the sum of the total number of all ordinary shares outstanding upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering plus all Class A ordinary shares and equity-linked securities issued or deemed issued in connection with the initial Business Combination, excluding any shares or equity-linked securities issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination.

Preferred shares—Pursuant to the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, the Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 preferred shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no preferred shares, respectively, issued and outstanding.

8.    Fair Value Measurements

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques that the Company utilized to determine such fair value. Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2 and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting period.
Fair Value

Assets
Investments held in Trust Account$400,085,168 $400,045,051 Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets

As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the recorded values of cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. Due to the use of quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets (Level 2) to estimate the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants, the Company had transfers out of Level 3 totaling $2,938,467 and a decrease in fair value of the Private Placement Warrants of $4,394,866 during the three months ended March 31, 2022.

Investments held in Trust Account

Investments held in Trust Account are invested in a U.S. Treasury securities money market fund as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. None of the balance in the Trust Account was held in cash as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

References to the “Company,” “our,” “us” or “we” refer to Fortress Capital Acquisition Corp. The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s 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. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including those set forth under “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements,” “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes, and oral statements made from time to time by representatives of the Company may include, forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (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. Such statements include, but are not limited to, possible business combinations and the financing thereof, and related matters, as well as all other statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 10-Q. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings. Forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report may include, for example, statements about:

our ability to select an appropriate target business or businesses;

our ability to complete our initial business combination;

our expectations around the performance of the prospective target business or businesses;

our success in retaining or recruiting, or changes required in, our officers, key employees or directors following our initial business combination;

our officers and directors allocating their time to other businesses and potentially having conflicts of interest with our business or in approving our initial business combination;

our potential ability to obtain additional financing to complete our initial business combination;
25





our pool of prospective target businesses;

our ability to consummate an initial business combination due to the uncertainty resulting from the recent COVID-19 pandemic;

the ability of our officers and directors to generate a number of potential business combination opportunities;

our public securities’ potential liquidity and trading;

the lack of a market for our securities;

the use of proceeds not held in the Trust Account (as defined below) or available to us from interest and dividend income on the Trust Account balance;     

the Trust Account not being subject to claims of third parties;

our financial performance; and

the other risks and uncertainties discussed in “Risk Factors”.

The forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on us. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we have anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those factors described under the heading “Item 1A. Risk Factors.” Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on August 27, 2020 as a Cayman Islands exempted company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (“Business Combination”). Although we may pursue an acquisition in any industry or geography, we intend to capitalize on the ability of our management team to identify, acquire and operate a business that may provide opportunities for attractive risk-adjusted returns. We are an emerging growth company and, as such, we are subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies. Our sponsor is Fortress Capital Acquisition Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”).

26





Our registration statement for the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) was declared effective on January 12, 2021. On January 15, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 40,000,000 units (“Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), which included the issuance of 5,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $400,000,000 and incurring offering costs of $22,764,787, inclusive of $14,000,000 in deferred underwriting commissions. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-fifth of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment.

Substantially concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated a private placement (“Private Placement”) of 7,333,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants” and together with the “Public Warrants”, the “Warrants”), at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, with our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $11,000,000.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, $400,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) of the aggregate net cash proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a U.S.-based trust account (the “Trust Account”), maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee. The cash proceeds held in the Trust Account were subsequently invested (i) in U.S. government treasury bills, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 185 days or less or (ii) in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by us meeting certain conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by us. Consistent with our desire to comply with the terms of the proposed safe harbor outlined in the 2022 Proposed Rule, we may elect to hold such proceeds in a non-interest bearing account. If we make such an election, the funds held in the Trust Account will not increase, which will limit the funds available for payment of taxes and dissolution expenses or for distribution to public shareholders.

In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only $10.00 per share initially held in the Trust Account (or less than that in certain circumstances). In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to 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 discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account. This liability will not apply with respect to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account or to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, our Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims.

27




The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that our Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all third parties, service providers (other than the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

On March 2, 2021, we announced that, commencing March 5, 2021, the holders of our Units may elect to separately trade the Class A ordinary shares and Public Warrants comprising the Units. Those Units not separated will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) under the symbol “FCAX.U”, and each of the Class A ordinary shares and Public Warrants that were separated trade on the NYSE under the symbols “FCAX” and “FCAX WS”, respectively.

Results of Operations

Since the Initial Public Offering, our activity has been limited to the search for a prospective initial Business Combination, and we will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial Business Combination. We expect to incur increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses in connection with completing a Business Combination.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had net income of $7,067,030 which consisted of $40,117 in interest and dividend income and a non-cash $7,429,266 decrease in fair value of warrant liabilities, partially offset by $402,353 in general and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses were primarily comprised of insurance expense, professional fees and administrative fees.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had net income of $1,645,928 which consisted of $17,154 in interest and dividend income and a non-cash $8,384,490 decrease in fair value of warrant liabilities. These gains were partially offset by a non-cash loss of $5,502,271 related to the excess of fair value over the cash received for Private Placement Warrants, $929,159 related to offering costs related to warrant liabilities and $324,286 in general and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses of $324,286 was primarily comprised of insurance expense and administrative fees.


28




Liquidity and Capital Resources, Mandatory Redemption Date and Going Concern

As indicated in the accompanying financial statements, as of March 31, 2022, we had $596,443 in cash and $887,965 of accounts payable and accrued expenses. As such, we do not believe we have sufficient liquidity to meet our current and future estimated financial obligations. Our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to provide working capital loans (“Working Capital Loans”) to us may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to us. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans through March 31, 2022. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants at a conversion price of $1.50 per warrant of the post-business combination entity. The terms of the warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. There were no Working Capital Loans outstanding as of March 31, 2022.

Additionally, if our estimates of the costs of undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating our initial Business Combination is less than the actual amount necessary to do so, or the amount of interest and dividends available to us from the Trust Account is less than we expect as a result of the current interest rate environment, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our initial Business Combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to consummate our initial Business Combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our Public Shares upon consummation of our initial Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only consummate such financing simultaneously with the consummation of our initial Business Combination. Following our initial Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

If we are unable to complete a Business Combination by January 15, 2023, we will cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, unless there is an extension on our period to complete a Business Combination. In connection with our assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 205-40, “Presentation of Financial Statements — Going Concern,” the requirement to complete a Business Combination by January 15, 2023 raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustment that might be necessary if we were unable to continue as a going concern.

Other Related Party Transactions

Founder shares

In September 2020, we issued an aggregate of 8,625,000 Founder Shares to our Sponsor in exchange for an aggregate capital contribution of $25,000. On January 12, 2021, we effected a share dividend with respect to the Founder Shares, resulting in 10,000,000 Founder Shares issued and outstanding. Our Sponsor had agreed to forfeit an aggregate of up to 1,250,000 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters. On January 15, 2021, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full. As a result, the 1,250,000 Founder Shares were no longer subject to forfeiture. The Founder Shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares upon the consummation of our Business Combination, on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment.

Note payable—related party

Our Sponsor loaned us an aggregate of $287,250 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note. The promissory note was non-interest bearing, unsecured and due on the earlier of July 31, 2021 or the closing of the Initial Public Offering. We repaid the promissory note in full on January 14, 2021.

Office space and related support services

During January 2021, we entered into an agreement with an affiliate of our Sponsor to pay a monthly fee of $20,000 for office space and related support services. Upon completion of the initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, we will cease paying these monthly fees. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, we incurred and paid $60,000 and $52,258, respectively, in expenses for services provided by an affiliate of our Sponsor in connection with the aforementioned agreement.

Contractual Obligations

Registration rights

The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed prior to the closing date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the consummation of a Business Combination. However, the registration rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable lock-up period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting agreement

The underwriters are entitled to a deferred underwriting discount of $0.35 per Unit, or $14,000,000, which will be payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption

We account for our Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in FASB ASC Topic 480 Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity. Class A ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A ordinary shares (including Class A ordinary shares that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A ordinary shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. Our Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 40,000,000 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption at the redemption value were presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of our unaudited condensed balance sheets.


31




Net income (loss) per ordinary share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share”. The Company’s unaudited condensed statements of operations include a presentation of net income (loss) per ordinary share in a manner similar to the two-class method of net income (loss) per ordinary share. Earnings and losses are shared pro-rata between the two classes of shares. Remeasurement adjustment associated with the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Net income (loss) per ordinary share, basic and diluted for Class A ordinary shares for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were calculated by dividing (i) the allocation of net income of $5,653,624 and $1,316,742, respectively, by (ii) the weighted average number of Class A ordinary shares outstanding for the respective periods.

Net income (loss) per ordinary share, basic and diluted for Class B ordinary shares for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were calculated by dividing (i) the allocation of net income of $1,413,406 and $329,186, respectively, by (ii) the weighted average number of Class B ordinary shares outstanding for the respective periods.

The Company has not considered the effect of the Warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering (including the exercise of the over-allotment option) and Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 15,333,333 Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted net income (loss) per share, since the exercise of the Warrants into Class A ordinary shares is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted net income (loss) per ordinary share is the same as basic net income (loss) per ordinary share for the periods presented.

Warrant liabilities

The Company accounts for its outstanding Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants in accordance with the guidance contained in FASB ASC Subtopic 815-40 “Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity” and determined that the Warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder. As such, each warrant must be recorded as a liability and is subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date and any change in fair value is recorded in the Company’s unaudited condensed statements of operations. One of the more significant accounting estimates included in these unaudited condensed financial statements is the determination of the fair value of the warrant liabilities.

Recent accounting pronouncements

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


32




Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of March 31, 2022, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K.

JOBS Act

On April 5, 2012, the JOBS Act was signed into law. 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 will be 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 such, our unaudited condensed financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

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

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based upon this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were not effective relating to the Company’s accounting for complex financial instruments. Notwithstanding this material weakness, management has concluded that our unaudited condensed financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Amended Form 10-Q are fairly stated in all material respects in accordance with GAAP for each of the periods presented herein.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer performed additional accounting and financial analyses and other post-closing procedures including consulting with subject matter experts related to the accounting for complex financial instruments. The Company’s management has expended, and will continue to expend a substantial amount of effort and resources for the remediation and improvement of our internal control over financial reporting. While we have processes to properly identify and evaluate the appropriate accounting technical pronouncements and other literature for all significant or unusual transactions, we have expanded and improved these processes to ensure that the nuances of such transactions are effectively evaluated in the context of the increasingly complex accounting standards.

There were no other changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting other than as noted.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

None.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

There have been no changes to the risk factors disclosed in “Risk Factors” included in our Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed on Form 10-K with the SEC on March 16, 2022, except for the below.

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 initial business combination, investments 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 our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our initial business combination, investments and results of 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 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. These rules, if adopted, whether in the form proposed or in revised form, and certain interpretations expressed by the SEC in connection therewith, may materially adversely affect our ability to negotiate and complete our initial business combination and may increase the costs and time related thereto.

If we are deemed to be an investment company under the Investment Company Act, we may be required to institute burdensome compliance requirements and our activities may be restricted, which may make it difficult for us to complete our initial business combination.

If we are deemed to be an investment company under the Investment Company Act, our activities may be restricted, including:

restrictions on the nature of our investments,
restrictions on the issuance of securities, and
restrictions on the enforceability of agreements entered into by us, each of which may make it difficult for us to complete our initial business combination.

In addition, we may have imposed upon us burdensome requirements, including:

registration as an investment company with the SEC (which may be impractical and would require significant changes in, among other things, our capital structure);
adoption of a specific form of corporate structure; and
reporting, record keeping, voting, proxy and disclosure requirements and other rules and regulations.

In order not to be regulated as an investment company under the Investment Company Act, unless we can qualify for an exclusion, we must ensure that we are engaged primarily in a business other than investing, reinvesting or trading of securities and that our activities do not include investing, reinvesting, owning, holding or trading “investment securities” constituting more than 40% of our total assets (exclusive of U.S. government securities and cash items) on an unconsolidated basis. Our business is to identify and complete an initial business combination and thereafter to operate the post-transaction business or assets for the long term. We do not plan to buy businesses or assets with a view to resale or profit from their resale. We do not plan to buy unrelated businesses or assets or to be a passive investor.

The 2022 Proposed Rule under the Investment Company Act would provide a safe harbor for SPACs from the definition of “investment company” under Section 3(a)(1)(A) of the Investment Company Act, provided that they satisfy certain conditions that limit a SPAC’s duration, asset composition, business purpose and activities. The duration component of the proposed safe harbor rule would require a SPAC to file a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC announcing that it has entered into an agreement with the target company (or companies) to engage in an initial business combination no later than 18 months after the effective date of the SPAC’s registration statement for its initial public offering. The SPAC would then be required to complete its initial business combination no later than 24 months after the effective date of its registration statement for its initial public offering. Although the 2022 Proposed Rules, including the proposed safe harbor rule, have not yet been adopted, there is substantial uncertainty regarding the applicability of the Investment Company Act to a SPAC that does not complete its initial business combination within the proposed time frame set forth in the proposed safe harbor rule or otherwise falls outside of the other provisions of the safe harbor.

We do not believe that our principal activities currently make us an investment company subject to the Investment Company Act. The proceeds held in the Trust Account may only be invested by the trustee only in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds investing solely in United States Treasuries and meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act. Although the 2022 Proposed Rules, including the proposed safe harbor rule, have not yet been adopted, and one or more elements of the 2022 Proposed Rules, including the proposed safe harbor rule, may not be adopted or may be adopted in a revised form, we do not have an agreement in place with a target for an initial business combination. Accordingly, we may not be able to complete our initial business combination within the 24-month period. If the 2022 Proposed Rules are adopted as proposed or in similar form, therefore, we may fall outside of the proposed safe harbor and the SEC could deem us to be subject to regulation as an investment company for purposes of the Investment Company Act. Nevertheless, we intend to comply with the terms of the proposed safe harbor rule, including the duration component of that rule. Consistent with this intent, we may elect to hold the proceeds in a non-interest bearing account. If we make such an election, the funds held in the Trust Account will not increase, which will limit the funds available for payment of taxes and dissolution expenses or for distribution to public shareholders. As a result, we do not believe that the SEC would deem us to be an investment company for purposes of the Investment Company Act. However, if we were deemed to be subject to the Investment Company Act, compliance with these additional regulatory burdens would require additional expenses for which we have not allotted funds and may hinder our ability to consummate an initial business combination. If we are unable to complete our initial business combination within the required period, we will redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, subject to certain adjustments. In such an event, our public shareholders may receive less than $10.00 per share upon such a distribution.
