MASON INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
NOTE 1 — DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Organization and Operations
Mason Industrial Technology, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company, and as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity through March 31, 2022, relates to the Company’s formation, its Initial Public Offering (the “IPO”) and identifying a target company for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate
non-operating
income in the form of interest income on cash from the proceeds derived from the IPO (see below for more information on the IPO) and recognizes changes in the fair value of warrant liabilities and forward purchase agreement as other income (expense).
Corporate Organization and Initial Public Offering
The Company was incorporated in Delaware on August 31, 2020. The Company’s sponsor is Mason Industrial Sponsor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”).
On February 2, 2021, the Company consummated its IPO of 50,000,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A common stock included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”) at $10.00 per Unit, raising $500.0 million of gross proceeds. Of the 50,000,000 units issued, 45,000,000 Units were included in the Company’s initial offering, and 5,000,000 Units resulted from the underwriter partially exercising its over- allotment option. The net proceeds of the IPO were $472.1 million, after deducting expenses and underwriting discounts and commissions of approximately $27.9 million, which includes $17.5 million in deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 9, Commitments and Contingencies, for more information).
Public Warrants
Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock and
one-third
of one redeemable warrant (each, a “Public Warrant” and, collectively, the “Public Warrants”). Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional shares of Class A common stock for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of the Company’s Initial Business Combination at an issue or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or their affiliates, without taking into account any shares of Class B common stock held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the amount that is the total equity proceeds (and interest thereon), available for the funding of the Initial Business Combination on the date of the consummation (net of redemptions) and (z) the volume- weighted average trading price of the Company’s Class A common stock during the
20-trading-day
period starting on the trading day prior to the date 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 Public Warrants will be adjusted, to the nearest cent, to 115% of the higher of the Newly Issued Price and the Market Value, and the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price described below will be adjusted, to the nearest cent, to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Newly Issued Price and the Market Value.
No fractional shares will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Public Warrants will trade. Each Public Warrant will become exercisable on the later of 30 days after the completion of the Company’s Initial Business Combination or 12 months from the closing of the IPO and will expire five years after the completion of the Company’s Initial Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.
Once the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Public Warrants in whole and not in part at a price of $0.01 per Public Warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption, if and only if the last sale price of the Company’s Class A common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the Public Warrant holders.

Private Placement Warrants
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated a private sale (the “Private Placement”) of 8,813,334 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants” and together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) to the Sponsor at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds of approximately $13.2 million (see Note 6, Related Party Transactions, for more information). The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Warrants included in the Units sold in the IPO, except as otherwise disclosed in the Registration Statement. No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sale.
Forward Purchase Agreement
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company entered into a Forward Purchase Agreement (the “FPA”) with the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Sponsor committed that it will purchase up to 8,000,000 forward purchase units (the “FPA Units”), consisting of one share of Class A common stock (the “FPA Share”) and
one-third
of one warrant to purchase one share of Class A common stock
(the “FPA Warrant”) for $10.00 per unit, or an aggregate amount of up to $80,000,000, in a private placement that will close concurrently with the closing of the initial Business Combination (see Note 6, Related Party Transactions, for more information). In addition, the Sponsor’s commitment under the FPA will be subject to approval, prior to entering into a definitive agreement for the initial Business Combination, of Mason Capital Management LLC, an affiliate of the managing member of the Sponsor. The FPA Shares will be identical to the shares of Class A common stock included in the units being sold in the IPO, except that they will be subject to transfer restrictions and registration rights. The FPA Warrants will have the same terms as the Private Placement Warrants so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted assignees and transferees.
Transaction Costs
Transaction costs amounted to $27.9 million, consisting of $10.0 million of underwriting fees, $17.5 million of deferred underwriting commissions, and $0.4 million of other offering costs.
The Trust Account
Following the closing of the IPO on February 2, 2021, $500.0 million of the net proceeds of the sale of the Units and the Private Placement Warrants were placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”). The funds held in the Trust Account are invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of one hundred eighty (180) days or less or in money market funds that meet certain conditions under Rule
2a-7
under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and that invest only in direct U.S. government obligations. Funds will remain in the Trust Account until the earlier of (i) the consummation of the Initial Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account proceeds as described below. The remaining proceeds outside the Trust Account may be used to pay for business, legal and accounting due diligence on prospective acquisitions and continuing general and administrative expenses.
Except with respect to interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account that may be released to the Company to pay its taxes, the proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement will not be released from the Trust Account until the earlier of: (i) the completion of the Company’s Initial Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of any Public Shares that have been properly tendered in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (A) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of Public Shares if the Company does not complete its Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO (or 30 months from the closing of the IPO if the Company has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for the Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO but has not completed the Initial Business Combination within such 24 month period) (the “Combination Period”) or (B) with respect to any other provision relating to stockholders’ right for
pre-Initial
Business Combination activity; and (iii) the redemption of 100% of the Public Shares if the Company is unable to complete an Initial Business Combination within the Combination Period, subject to the requirements of law. The proceeds deposited in the Trust Account could become subject to the claims of the Company’s creditors, if any, which could have priority over the claims of the Company’s public stockholders.
Initial Business Combination
The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the IPO, although substantially all of the net proceeds of the IPO are intended to be generally applied toward consummating an Initial Business Combination. The Initial Business Combination must occur with one or more target businesses that together have an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the amount of any deferred underwriting discount held in the trust account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the Initial Business Combination. Furthermore, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect an Initial Business Combination.

The Company, after signing a definitive agreement for an Initial Business Combination, will either (i) seek stockholder approval of the Initial Business Combination at a meeting called for such purpose in connection with which stockholders may seek to redeem their shares, regardless of whether they vote for or against the Initial Business Combination, for cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Initial Business Combination, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay the Company’s taxes, or (ii) provide stockholders with the opportunity to sell their Public Shares to the Company by means of a tender offer (and thereby avoid the need for a stockholder vote) for an amount in cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Initial Business Combination, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay the Company’s taxes. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of the Initial Business Combination or will allow stockholders to sell their Public Shares in a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion, and will be based on a variety of factors such as the timing of the transaction and whether the terms of the transaction would otherwise require the Company to seek stockholder approval, unless a vote is required by law or under NYSE rules. If the Company seeks stockholder approval, it will complete its Initial Business Combination only if a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock voted are voted in favor of the Initial Business Combination.
If the Company holds a stockholder vote or there is a tender offer for shares in connection with an Initial Business Combination, a public stockholder will have the right to redeem its shares for an amount in cash equal to its pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Initial Business Combination, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay the Company’s taxes.
Pursuant to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, if the Company is unable to complete the 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 no 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 the Company’s taxes (less $100,000 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), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining stockholders and the Company’s board of directors, dissolve and liquidate, 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 and the Company’s directors, director nominees and officers have entered into a letter agreement with the Company, pursuant to which they have agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares (as defined below) (Note 3, Fair Value Measurements) held by them if the Company fails to complete an Initial Business Combination within the Combination Period.
However, if the Sponsor or any of the Company’s directors, officers or affiliates acquired shares of Class A common stock in the IPO or acquires such shares after the IPO, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such shares if the Company fails to complete the Initial Business Combination within the Combination Period.
Separate Trading of Class A common shares and Public Warrants
On March 18, 2021, the Company announced that, commencing March 22, 2021, the holders of the Company’s Units may elect to separately trade the Class A common stock and Public Warrants comprising the Units. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the units and only whole warrants will trade. Those units not separated will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “MIT.U,” and each of the shares of Class A common stock and Public Warrants that are separated will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbols “MIT” and “MIT.W,” respectively.
Risks and Uncertainties
Management is continuing to evaluate the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations and search for a target company, the specific impacts are not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The 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. 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.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had $194,145 and $975,393 in cash not held in the Trust Account and available for working capital purposes, respectively. The Company
believes
it will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating the business.
If
the Company’s estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking
in-depth
due diligence and negotiating an Initial Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, the Company may have insufficient funds available to operate the business prior to the Initial Business Combination. Moreover, the Company may need to obtain additional financing either to complete the Initial Business Combination or to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon completion of the Initial Business Combination, in which case the Company may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Initial Business Combination. If the Company is unable to complete the Business Combination because it does not have sufficient funds available, the Company will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account.
Going Concern
In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic
205-40,
Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern, the Company has until February 23, 2023, to consummate an initial business combination. It is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate an initial business combination by this time. If an initial business combination is not consummated by this date, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Additionally, the Company may not have sufficient liquidity to fund the working capital needs of the Company through one year from the issuance of these financial statements. Management has determined that the liquidity condition and 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. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after February 23, 2023. The Company’s sponsor, officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds from time to time or at any time, in whatever amount they deem reasonable in their sole discretion, to meet the Company’s working capital needs.
NOTE 2 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements, summary of significant accounting policies and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form
10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the “2021 Form
10-K”).
Accordingly, certain disclosures required by GAAP and normally included in Annual Reports on Form
10-K
have been condensed or omitted from this report; however, except as disclosed herein, there has been no material change in the information disclosed in the notes to condensed financial statements included in the Company’s 2021 Form
10-K.
It is the opinion of management that all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of interim financial information, have been included. The Company has no items of other comprehensive income or loss; therefore, its net income or loss is identical to its comprehensive income or loss. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of expected results for the full year or for any future interim periods.

Use of Estimates
In the course of preparing the condensed financial statements, management makes various assumptions, judgments and estimates to determine the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses, and in the disclosures of commitments and contingencies. Changes in these assumptions, judgments and estimates will occur as a result of the passage of time and the occurrence of future events. Although management believes these estimates are reasonable, actual results could differ from these estimates.
Estimates made in preparing these condensed financial statements include, among other things, (1) the measurement of derivative liabilities, (2) the measurement of the derivative forward purchase agreement and (3) accrued expenses. Changes in these estimates and assumptions could have a significant impact on results in future periods.
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. The Company’s cash balances held at commercial banks may at times exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limit. The Company has not experienced any credit losses to date.
Cash held in Trust Account
At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had $500.1 million and $500.0 million in cash held in the Trust Account that were held in U.S. Treasury Bills, respectively.
Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). Certain financial assets and liabilities, such as the derivative liability, are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. Nonfinancial assets and liabilities, if any, are recognized at fair value on a nonrecurring basis.
The Company categorizes the inputs to the fair value of its financial assets and liabilities using a three-tier fair value hierarchy, established by the FASB, that prioritizes the significant inputs used in measuring fair value. These levels are:
Level 1—inputs are based on unadjusted quoted prices that are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Examples of Level 1 inputs include financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, listed securities and U.S. government treasury securities.
Level 2—inputs are based upon quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques (e.g., the Black-Scholes model) for which all significant inputs are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. Where applicable, these models project future cash flows and discount the future amounts to a present value using market-based observable inputs including interest rate curves, credit spreads, foreign exchange rates, and forward and spot prices for currencies. Examples of Level 2 inputs include nonexchange-traded derivatives such as
over-the-counter
forwards, swaps, and options.
Level 3—inputs that are generally unobservable from objective sources and typically reflect management’s estimates and assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The fair values are therefore determined using model-based techniques, including option pricing models and discounted cash flow models.
Financial assets and liabilities are classified based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Concentration of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash held in Trust Account. The Company’s Trust Account is maintained with a high-quality financial institution, with the compositions and maturities of the Trust Account’s investments are regularly monitored by management.
Derivative liabilities and forward purchase agreement
The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company accounts for derivative instruments as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the instruments specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480, Distinguishing liabilities from equity (“ASC 480”), and ASC 815, Derivatives and hedging (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the instruments are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the instruments meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the instruments are indexed to the Company’s own common stock, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of instruments issuance and as of each subsequent reporting period end date while the instruments are outstanding.
The Company evaluated the Public Warrants, the Private Placement Warrants, Over-allotment option, and the FPA (which are discussed in Note 3, Fair Value Measurements, Note 4, Stockholders’ Deficit and Note 6, Related Party Transactions) in accordance with ASC
815-40,
Contracts in an entity’s own equity (“ASC
815-40”),
and concluded that each contained provisions related to certain tender or exchange offers which precludes them from being accounted for as a component of equity. As the Warrant’s, Over-allotment option, and FPA meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the Warrants, Over-allotment option, and FPA were measured at fair value at inception (on the date of the IPO) and recorded as assets or liabilities on the balance sheets. The Warrants, Over-allotment option, and FPA are subject to remeasurement at each reporting date until exercised in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), with changes in fair value recognized on the statements of operation in the period of change. Subsequent to becoming publicly traded on March 22, 2021, the fair value of the Public Warrants was determined based on their quoted trading price. Prior to being publicly traded, the fair value of the Public Warrants was estimated using a Binomial Lattice valuation model, while the fair value of the Over-allotment option, Private Placement Warrants, and FPA are estimated using a modified Black-Scholes and adjusted net assets valuation model, respectively. See Note 3, Fair Value Measurements, for more information regarding the methods used to fair value the derivative liabilities and the FPA.
Allocation of Issuance costs
The Company accounts for the allocation of its issuance costs to its Warrants using the guidance in ASC
470-20,
Debt with conversion and other options (“ASC
470-20”),
applied by analogy. Under this guidance, if debt or stock is issued with detachable warrants, the proceeds need to be allocated to the two instruments using either the fair value method, the relative fair value method, or the residual value method. The guidance also requires companies to use a consistent approach in allocating issuance costs between the instruments. Accordingly, the Company allocated its issuance costs of $27,903,259—consisting of $10,000,000 of underwriting fees, $17,500,000 of deferred underwriting commissions, and $403,259 of other offering costs —to the issuance of its Class A shares and Public Warrants in the amount of $26,581,907 and $1,321,353, respectively. Issuance costs attributed to the Public Warrants were expensed during the first quarter of 2021 to the statements of operations.
Issuance costs associated with the issuance of Class A common stock were charged against the carrying value of the Class A common stock subject to possible redemption upon the completion of the IPO. The Company classifies deferred underwriting commissions as
non-current
liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.

Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company accounts for its Class A common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC 480. Shares of Class A common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s Class A common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 50,000,000 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s balance sheets, respectively. Immediately upon the closing of the IPO, the Company recognized the remeasurement from initial book value to redemption amount, which approximates fair value. The change in the carrying value of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption resulted in charges against additional
paid-in
capital (to the extent available) and accumulated deficit and Class A common stock.
Franchise Tax Obligation
As a Delaware corporation, the Company’s franchise tax obligation is based on the number of shares of common stock authorized and outstanding. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company has recorded franchise taxes payable of $50,000 and $186,031, respectively. The Company remits these obligations to Delaware annually.
Income Taxes
Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. The Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and income tax basis of assets and liabilities and the expected benefits of utilizing net operating losses, interest expense and tax credit carryforwards, using enacted tax rates in effect for the taxing jurisdiction in which the Company operates for the year in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Unrecognized tax benefits represent potential future tax obligations for uncertain tax positions taken on previously filed tax returns that may not ultimately be sustained. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense. The Company classifies all deferred tax assets and liabilities as noncurrent.
The Company recognizes the financial statement effects of a tax position when it is more likely than not, based on technical merits, that the position will be sustained upon examination. The Company periodically assesses the realizability of its deferred tax assets by considering whether it is more likely than not that all or a portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The Company considers all available positive and negative evidence when determining whether a valuation allowance is required. In making this assessment, the Company evaluates possible sources of taxable income that may be available to realize the deferred tax assets, including projected future taxable income, the reversal of existing temporary differences available and tax planning strategies. Deferred tax assets are then reduced by a valuation allowance if the Company believes it is more likely than not such deferred tax assets will not be realized.
Net Income Per Common Share
The Company has two classes of shares, Class A common stock and Class B common stock. Net income per common share is computed by dividing net income, on a pro rata basis, by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. The Company applies the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. Remeasurement associated with the redeemable Class A common stock is excluded from net income per common share as the redemption value approximates fair value.
The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the IPO and Private Placement to purchase 25,480,001 shares of Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021, the Company did not have any other dilutive securities or other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into shares of common stock and then share in earnings of the Company.
Recently issued accounting standards
In August 2020, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”)
No. 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 U.S. GAAP. The ASU also removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity-linked contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception, and it simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. The new standard is effective for the Company on January 1, 2024, although early adoption is permitted. The ASU allows the use of the modified retrospective method or the fully retrospective method. The Company is still in the process of evaluating the impact of this new standard; however, the Company does not believe the initial impact of adopting the standard will result in any changes to the Company’s statements of financial position, operations or cash flows.
The Company’s management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed financial statements.

Investments held in Trust Account
. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the investments held in Trust Account were entirely comprised of U.S. Treasury Bills, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company did not withdraw any interest income from the Trust Account, respectively.
Derivative liabilities
.
The Warrants are accounted for as liabilities in accordance with ASC
815-40
and are presented within derivative warrant liabilities on the balance sheets. The derivative warrant liabilities were measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis, with changes in fair value presented within change in fair value of derivative liabilities in the statements of operations.
Measurement
The Warrants are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. The subsequent measurement of the Public Warrants as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 are classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market under the ticker MIT.W. The fair value of the Private Warrants continues to be estimated using a modified Black-Scholes valuation model and is classified as Level 3 due to the use of unobservable inputs.
The following table presents information and assumptions used in the modified Black-Scholes valuation model to determine the estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants as of March 31, 2022:

The following contains additional information regarding the inputs used in the pricing models:
 
   
Anticipated future spot price – the Company estimated the future spot price on an expected acquisition announcement date using an interpolated risk-free rate.
 
   
Term – the expected life of the warrants was assumed to be the time from the expected acquisition announcement to the expiration of their contractual term.
 
   
Risk-free rate – the risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect on the date of valuation equal to the remaining expected life of the warrants.
 
   
Volatility – the Company estimated the volatility of its common stock warrants based on the implied volatility of the Company’s own publicly traded warrants.
 
   
Dividend yield – the dividend yield percentage is zero because the Company does not currently pay dividends, nor does it intend to do so during the expected term of private placement warrants.

Derivative forward purchase agreement
. The FPA is accounted for as a derivative instrument in accordance with ASC
815-40
and is presented as a derivative forward purchase agreement asset or liability on the balance sheets. The FPA was measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis, with changes in fair value presented within change in fair value of forward purchase agreement in the statements of operations.
The FPA was valued using an adjusted net assets method, which is considered to be a Level 3 fair value measurement. Under the adjusted net assets method utilized, the aggregate commitment of $80.0 million, pursuant to the FPA, is discounted to present value and compared to the fair value of the common stock and warrants to be issued pursuant to the FPA. The fair value of the common stock and warrants to be issued under the FPA were based on the public trading price of one Class A Common Share and the value of
one-third
of one Private Placement Warrant. The excess (liability) or deficit (asset) of the fair value of the common stock and warrants to be issued compared to the $80.0 million fixed commitment is then reduced to account for the probability of consummation of the Business Combination.
The change in fair value of the derivative forward purchase agreement through March 31, 2022 is as follows:

Class
 A Common Stock
— The Company is authorized to issue 400,000,000 shares of Class A common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A common stock are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no shares of Class A common stock issued and outstanding (excluding 50,000,000 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption), respectively.
If the Company enters into an initial Business Combination, it may (depending on the terms of such an initial Business Combination) be required to increase the number of shares of Class A common stock which the Company is authorized to issue at the same time as the Company’s stockholders vote on the initial Business Combination to the extent the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with the initial Business Combination.
In addition, 50,000,000 shares of Class A common stock are redeemable upon the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination, subject to the requirements of law. In addition, if the Company is unable to complete the initial Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up and redeem the shares of Class A common stock at a
per-share
price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares (see Note 1, Description of Organization and Business Operations, for more information). The Company classified the shares of Class A common stock subject to redemption rights as temporary equity as the event of the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination is not solely within the control of the Company.
Class
 B Common Stock
— The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 shares of Class B common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 12,500,000 shares of Class B common stock were issued and outstanding. These amounts have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the January 28, 2021 stock dividend of 0.125 shares, described in Note 6, Related Party Transactions.
Holders of the Class A common stock and holders of the Class B common stock will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the stockholders, except as required by law.
The Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors entered into a letter agreement with the Company, pursuant to which they agreed (i) to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of the initial Business Combination, (ii) to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares and Public Shares in connection with a stockholder vote to approve an amendment to the Company’s certificate of incorporation and (iii) to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to their Founder Shares if the Company fails to complete the initial Business Combination within the Combination Period, although they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to their Public Shares if the Company fails to complete the initial Business Combination within such time period.
Warrant Liabilities
— Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination or (b) 12 months from the closing of the IPO; provided in each case that the Company has an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the shares of common stock 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 a Business Combination, the Company will use its best efforts to file with the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Company will use its best efforts to cause the same to become effective and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration of the Public Warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a registration statement covering the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants is not effective within a specified period following the consummation of Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company shall have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a cashless basis pursuant to the exemption provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act, provided that such exemption is available. If that exemption, or another exemption, is not available, holders will not be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had 16,666,667 warrants outstanding.

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units being sold in the IPO, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A common stock issuable upon the 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. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants will be exercisable on a cashless basis and be
non-redeemable
so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.
The Company may redeem the Public Warrants (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants):
 
   
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
 
   
at any time during the exercise period;
 
   
upon a minimum of
30
days’ prior written notice of redemption; and
 
   
if, and only if, the last sale price of the Company’s Class A common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.
 
   
If, and only if, there is a current registration statement in effect with respect to the shares of Class A common stock underlying such warrants.
In addition, the Company may call the Public Warrants for redemption:
 
   
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at $0.10 per warrant;
 
   
upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder, provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive a certain number of shares of Class A common stock, based on the fair market value of the Company’s Class A common stock;
 
   
if, and only if, the closing price of Class A common stock equals or exceeds $10.00 per share for any 20 trading days within the
30-
trading day period ending three trading days before the notice of redemption is sent to the warrant holders; and
If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis,” as described in the warrant agreement.
The private placement warrants will be
non-redeemable
and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by our sponsor or its permitted transferees. If the private placement warrants are held by holders other than our sponsor or its permitted transferees and if the closing price of Class A common stock for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the warrant holders is less than $18.00 per share, the private placement warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding public warrants.
The exercise price and number of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a stock dividend, or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. However, the warrants will not be adjusted for issuance of Class A common stock at a price below its exercise 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. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had 8,813,334 private placement warrants outstanding.

NOTE 5 — CLASS A COMMON STOCK SUBJECT TO POSSIBLE REDEMPTION
The Company’s Class A common stock feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of future events. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 50,000,000 shares of Class A common stock outstanding, all of which were subject to possible redemption.

NOTE 6 — RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Founder Shares
On January 28, 2021, the Company effected a stock dividend of 0.125 shares of Class B common stock, resulting in the Sponsor holding an aggregate of 12,937,500 Founder Shares (up to 1,687,500 Founder Shares of which are subject to forfeiture to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised), representing an adjusted purchase price of approximately $0.002 per share. The financial statement
s
ha
ve
 been retroactively restated to reflect the stock dividend. In January 28, 2021, our sponsor transferred 84,375 founder shares to Edward A. Rose III and 56,250 founder shares to each of James L. Bauman, Diane M. Parisi, William B. Plummer and Philip B. Whitehead, at the original per share purchase price.
On January 29, 2021, the Sponsor forfeited 437,500 Founder Shares as a result of the underwriters’ election to partially exercise their over- allotment option.
The Founder Shares are identical to the Class A common stock included in the Units being sold in the IPO except that the Founder Shares automatically convert into shares of Class A common stock at the time of the Company’s initial Business Combination, on a
one-for-one
basis, subject to adjustments pursuant to certain anti-dilution rights, and the Founder Shares are subject to certain transfer restrictions.
The Company’s initial stockholders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination or (B) subsequent to the initial Business Combination, (x) if the last sale price of the Company’s 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 180 days after the initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange 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.
The sale or allocation of the Founder Shares to the Company’s director and officers, as described above, is within the scope of FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”). Under ASC 718, stock-based compensation associated with equity-classified awards is measured at fair value upon the grant date. The estimated fair value of the Founder Shares granted to the Company’s director nominees, based on a Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model valuation, was approximately $2.2 million, or $7.23 per share. The Founder Shares were effectively sold subject to a performance condition (i.e., the consummation of a Business Combination). Compensation expense related to the Founder Shares is recognized only when the performance condition is probable of achievement under the applicable accounting literature. Stock-based compensation would be recognized at the date a Business Combination is considered probable in an amount equal to the number of Founder Shares multiplied by the grant date fair value per share (unless subsequently modified) less the amount initially received for the purchase of the Founder Shares. As of March 31, 202
2
, the Company has not yet entered into any definitive agreements in connection with any Business Combination. Any such agreements may be subject to certain conditions to closing, such as, for example, approval by the Company’s shareholders. As a result, the Company determined that the consummation of a Business Combination is not considered probable, and, therefore, no stock-based compensation expense has been recognized.

Private Placement
As described in Note 1, Description of Organization and Business Operations, the Company sold Private Placement Warrants simultaneously with the closing of the IPO. Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one whole share of the Company’s Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the proceeds from the IPO to be held in the Trust Account. If the initial Business Combination is not completed within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants held in the Trust Account will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.
The Private Placement Warrants are
non-redeemable
and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees. The Private Placement Warrants are not transferrable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination.
Forward Purchase Agreement
As described in Note 1, Description of Organization and Business Operations, the Company entered into an FPA with the Sponsor simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, pursuant to which the Sponsor committed that it will purchase up to 8,000,000 FPA Units, consisting of one share of Class A common stock and
one-third
of one warrant to purchase one share
of Class A common stock for $10.00 per unit, or an aggregate amount of up to $80,000,000, in a private placement that will close concurrently with the closing of the initial Business Combination. In addition, the Sponsor’s commitment under the FPA will be subject to approval, prior to entering into a definitive agreement for the initial Business Combination, of Mason Capital Management LLC, an affiliate of the managing member of the Sponsor. The proceeds from the sale of the FPA Units, together with the amounts available to the Company from the Trust Account (after giving effect to any redemptions of Public Shares) and any other equity or debt financing obtained by the Company in connection with the initial Business Combination, will be used to satisfy the cash requirements of the initial Business Combination, including funding the purchase price and paying expenses and retaining specified amounts to be used by the post-business combination company for working capital or other purposes. To the extent that the amounts available from the Trust Account and other financing are sufficient for such cash requirements, the Sponsor may purchase less than 8,000,000 FPA Units. In addition, the Sponsor’s commitment under the FPA will be subject to approval, prior to entering into a definitive agreement for the initial Business Combination, of Mason Capital Management LLC, an affiliate of the managing member of the Sponsor. The FPA Shares will be identical to the shares of Class A common stock included in the units being sold in this offering, except that they will be subject to transfer restrictions and registration rights. The FPA Warrants will have the same terms as the Private Placement Warrants so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted assignees and transferees.
Related Party Loan
The Company’s Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the IPO pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). This Note was
non-interest
bearing and payable on the earlier of September 30, 2021 or the completion of the IPO. The outstanding balance under the Note of $300,000 was repaid in full on February 16, 2021. In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with the initial Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor or certain of the Company’s directors and officers may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes the initial Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans. In the event that the initial Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Up to $1.5 million of the 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. To date, the Company has had no Working Capital Loans outstanding.
NOTE 7 — INCOME TAXES
The Company’s provision for income taxes for interim periods is based on the estimated annual effective tax rate, in addition to discrete items. Since inception, the Company has not recorded a federal or state provision for income taxes. The Company maintains a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and
 
year ended December
 
31, 2021,
 
the Company did
no
t recognize provision for income taxes.
Utilization of net operating loss carryforwards, tax credits and other attributes may be subject to future annual limitations due to potential ownership change limitations provided by Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code.

NOTE 8 — NET INCOME PER COMMON SHARE
The Company has two classes of shares, Class A common stock and Class B common stock. Net income per common share is computed by dividing net income, on a pro rata basis, by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Remeasurement associated with the redeemable Class A common stock is excluded from net income per common share as the redemption value approximates fair value.
The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the IPO and Private Placement to purchase 25,480,001
shares of Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company did not have any other dilutive securities or other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into shares of common stock and then share in earnings of the Company. As a result, diluted net income per common share is the same as basic net income per common share for the periods presented.

NOTE 9 — COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Registration Rights
Pursuant to a registration rights agreement, dated January 28, 2021, the holders of the Founder 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 or warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans and upon conversion of the Founder Shares) will be entitled to registration rights requiring the Company to register such securities for resale (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion to Class A common stock). The holders of these securities will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination and rights to require the Company to register for resale such securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Underwriting Agreement
The underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of 2.0% of the gross proceeds of the IPO, or $10.0 million, with an additional fee (the “Deferred Discount”) of 3.5% of the gross offering proceeds payable upon the Company’s completion of an initial Business Combination. This Deferred Discount of $17.5 
million has been recorded as Deferred Underwriting Commissions in the balance sheet as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The Deferred Discount will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event the Company completes its initial Business Combination.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q
includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), 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. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings.
Overview
We are a blank check company incorporated as a Delaware corporation and 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, which we refer to throughout this Annual Report as our initial business combination. We consummated our initial public offering on February 2, 2021.
We currently intend to concentrate our efforts in identifying businesses in the industrial technology, advanced materials or specialty chemicals industries (collectively, “Advanced Industrials”). A common theme across these sectors is the application of technology to make industrial processes more profitable, faster, more sustainable, less capital-intensive and less complex. Specifically, we intend to identify businesses that apply innovative technology to engineering, production, assembly and manufacturing. These innovations include a wide range of automation, analytics and productivity tools, as well as control systems, high precision technologies, sustainability technologies, high performance computing and robotics. These technologies enable companies to confront numerous challenges inherent in their daily operations, such as rising wage rates, globalization, increased regulation, higher quality standards, heightened focus on sustainability and tighter timelines. We are also interested in companies that participate in market segments that are adjacent to Advanced Industrials. We believe that there are many potential targets within Advanced Industrials that could become attractive public companies. These potential targets exhibit a broad range of business models and financial characteristics, with enterprise values ranging between $1 billion and $3 billion. They span a wide continuum that includes both high growth emerging companies and mature businesses with established growth profiles, recurring revenues and strong cash flows. They are generally characterized by strong intellectual property, differentiated product offerings, compelling customer value propositions and corporate cultures that are data-driven and innovative.
We are not, however, required to complete our initial business combination with an Advanced Industrials business and, as a result, we may pursue a business combination outside of this industry. We are seeking to acquire a mature businesses that we believe are fundamentally sound, yet which could benefit from additional financial, operational, strategic or managerial resources to achieve maximum value potential. We are also targeting earlier stage, yet established, companies that exhibit the potential to disrupt the market segments in which they participate through innovation and which offer the potential of sustained high levels of revenue growth.
Our sponsor is affiliated with and controlled by Mason Capital, a registered investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended, which was established in 2000 and had over $1.5 billion of assets under management as of March 31, 2022.
Results of Operations
We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. All activity from our inception through the date of our IPO, February 2, 2021, was in preparation for our IPO. Since our IPO, our activity has been limited to the evaluation of Business Combination candidates. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our Business Combination. We expect to generate
non-operating
income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held after the IPO. We 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.
Comparison of the three months ended March 31, 2022 versus March 31, 2021
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had a net income of $7,444,176 which was primarily driven by a $8,408,400 gain from changes in fair value of derivative liabilities and $40,809 of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account. This was offset by general and administrative expenses of $523,824, $50,000 of franchise tax expense, and $431,209 loss from changes in fair value of the derivative FPA.
 
19

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had net income of $17,723,284 which was primarily driven by a $18,904,934 gain from changes in fair value of derivative liabilities, a $362,131 gain from changes in fair value of the derivative FPA, and $4,759 of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account. This was partially offset by $1,321,353 of issuance costs attributed to the Warrants, $118,310 of franchise tax expense, and $108,877 in general and administrative expense.
As described in Note 2,
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
, in “Part 1. Financial Information – Item 1. Financial Statements,” we account for (i) the Warrants issued in connection with our IPO and Private Placement and (ii) the forward purchase agreement as derivative instruments which were initially recorded at their fair value. These derivative instruments are subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in our statements of operations.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of March 31, 2022, we had cash of $194,145 held outside the Trust Account. We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination.
As of March 31, 2022, we had cash and marketable securities in the Trust Account of $500,070,330. We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our initial Business Combination. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.
Material cash requirements
As of March 31, 2022, we do not have any debt, lease obligations or other capital commitments.
The underwriters are entitled to deferred fee of 3.5% of the gross proceeds of the Public Offering, or $17,500,000. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the trust account solely in the event that we complete our initial business combination.
Sources of cash
Prior to the completion of the IPO, our liquidity needs were satisfied through receipt of $25,000 from the sale of Founder Shares to Mason Industrial Sponsor LLC, or the “Sponsor”.
On February 2, 2021, we consummated the IPO of 50,000,000 Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit generating net proceeds of $472,096,741. Transaction costs were $27,903,259, including $10,000,000 of underwriting fees, $17,500,000 of deferred underwriting fees and $403,259 of other offering costs in connection with the IPO. Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, we consummated the sale of 8,813,334 Private Placement Warrants to our Sponsor at a price of $1.50 per warrant, generating gross proceeds of $13,220,000. Following the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, a total of $500,000,000 was placed in a Trust Account and following the payment of certain transaction expenses.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash used in operating activities was $781,248. Net income of $7,444,176 was impacted by the
non-cash
changes in fair value of the derivative liabilities and forward purchase agreement of $8,408,400 and ($431,209), respectively. Additionally, changes in operating assets and liabilities provided $207,424 of cash used in operating activities.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $867,135. Net income of $17,723,284 was impacted by the
non-cash
changes in fair value of the derivative liabilities and forward purchase agreement of $18,904,934 and $362,131, respectively, and the issuance costs attributed to the warrant liabilities of $1,321,353. Additionally, changes in operating assets and liabilities provided $639,948 of cash used in operating activities.
In order to fund working capital deficiencies and/or finance transaction costs in connection with an initial Business Combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete our initial Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our initial Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such 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.
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had $194,145 and $975,393 in cash not held in the Trust Account and available for working capital purposes, respectively. The Company believes it will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating the business. If the Company’s estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating an Initial Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, the Company may have insufficient funds available to operate the business prior to the Initial Business Combination. Moreover, the Company may need to obtain additional financing either to complete the Initial Business Combination or to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon completion of the Initial Business Combination, in which case the Company may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Initial Business Combination. If the Company is unable to complete the Business Combination because it does not have sufficient funds available, the Company will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account.
In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 205-40, Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern, the Company has until February 23, 2023, to consummate an initial business combination. It is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate an initial business combination by this time. If an initial business combination is not consummated by this date, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Additionally, the Company may not have sufficient liquidity to fund the working capital needs of the Company through one year from the issuance of these financial statements. Management has determined that the liquidity condition and 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. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after February 23, 2023. The Company’s sponsor, officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds from time to time or at any time, in whatever amount they deem reasonable in their sole discretion, to meet the Company’s working capital needs.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Our management makes a number of significant estimates, assumptions and judgments in the preparation of our financial statements. See “Note 2—Summary of Significant Account Policies” in our 2021 Form
10-K,
for a discussion of the estimates and judgments necessary in our accounting for common stock subject to possible redemption, and net income per common share. Any new accounting policies or updates to existing accounting policies as a result of new accounting pronouncements have been included in the notes to our condensed financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q.
The application of our critical accounting policies may require management to make judgments and estimates about the amounts reflected in the condensed financial statements. Management uses historical experience and all available information to make these estimates and judgments. Different amounts could be reported using different assumptions and estimates.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Please refer to Note 2,
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
, in “Part 1. Financial Information – Item 1. Financial Statements” for a discussion of recent accounting pronouncements and their anticipated effect on our business.
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” under the JOBS Act and are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We elected 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, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.
 
21

As an “emerging growth company”, we are not required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of
non-emerging
growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis), and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of our initial public offering or until we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” whichever is earlier.
 
Item 3.
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
Not required for smaller reporting companies.
 
Item 4.
Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial 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 on this evaluation, and in light of the material weakness identified related to accounting for complex financial instruments, as described below, our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer has concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2022.
The Company’s management concluded that our control around the interpretation and accounting for certain complex features of the Class A common stock subject to redemption, the forward purchase agreement, the over allotment option, and the warrants issued by the Company was not effectively designed or maintained. This material weakness resulted in a material error in our accounting for these complex financial instruments and restatements of each of the Company’s interim financial statements on Form
10-Q/A
during the year ended December 31, 2021.
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.
Remediation Plan
After identifying the material weakness, we have commenced our remediation efforts by taking the following steps:
 
   
We have expanded and improved our review process for complex securities and related accounting standards.
 
   
We have increased communication among our personnel and third-party professionals with whom we consult regarding complex accounting applications.
 
   
We have also retained the services of a valuation expert to assist in valuation analysis of the Warrants on a quarterly basis.
 
   
We are establishing additional monitoring and oversight controls designed to ensure the accuracy and completeness of our financial statements and related disclosures.
The process of designing and implementing an effective financial reporting system is a continuous effort that requires us to anticipate and react to changes in our business and the economic and regulatory environments and to expend resources to maintain a financial reporting system that is adequate to satisfy our reporting obligations. As we continue to evaluate and take actions to improve our internal control over financial reporting, we may determine to take additional actions to address control deficiencies or determine to modify certain of the remediation measures described above. We cannot assure you that the measures we have taken to date, or any measures we may take in the future, will be sufficient to remediate the material weaknesses we have identified or avoid potential future material weaknesses.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended 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.
