TWELVE SEAS INVESTMENT COMPANY

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

SEPTEMBER 30, 2019

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 - Organization and Business Operations

 

Organization and General

 

Twelve Seas Investment Company (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated on November 30, 2017, under the laws of the Cayman Islands for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”). The Company’s efforts to identify a prospective target business are not limited to a particular industry or geographic location.

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had not yet commenced any operations generating revenue. All activity through September 30, 2019 relates to the Company’s formation, the Initial Public Offering (as defined below), the search for prospective targets to effect a Business Combination, and consummating the aforementioned Business Combination (as described in Initial Business Combination section of Note 1). The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end. 

 

Financing

 

The registration statements for the Company’s initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering” or the “IPO”) were declared effective on June 19, 2018. On June 22, 2018, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 18,000,000 units (“Units” or “Public Units” and, with respect to the ordinary shares included in the Public Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), generating gross proceeds of $180,000,000, which is described in Note 3.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 475,000 units (the “Private Units”) at a price of $10.00 per Unit in a private placement to the Company’s sponsor (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds of $4,750,000, which is described in Note 4.

 

Contained in the underwriting agreement for the Initial Public Offering was an overallotment option allowing the underwriters to purchase from the Company up to an additional 2,700,000 Public Units and the sale to the Sponsor of an additional 54,000 Private Units at $10.00 per Unit (as described in Note 3 - Initial Public Offering and Note 4 - Private Placements).

 

On June 28, 2018, the underwriters exercised the option in full and purchased 2,700,000 Public Units, which were sold at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $27,000,000. Simultaneously with the sale of the over-allotment Public Units, the Company consummated the private placement of an additional 54,000 Private Units, purchased by the Sponsor, at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating total additional gross proceeds of $540,000.

 

Trust Account

 

Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering on June 22, 2018, an amount of $180,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Public Units in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Units was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”). Following the closing of underwriters’ exercise of over-allotment option on June 28, 2018, an additional $27,000,000 of net proceeds ($10.00 per Unit) was placed in the Trust Account, bringing the aggregate proceeds held in the Trust Account to $207,000,000.

 

The funds in the Trust Account are invested in U.S. government securities, 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 180 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below, except that interest earned on the Trust Account can be released to pay the Company’s income or other tax obligations.

Initial Business Combination

 

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Units, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be generally applied toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company’s Business Combination must be with one or more target businesses that together have a fair market value equal to at least 80% of the balance in the Trust Account (as defined below) (net of taxes payable) at the time of the signing an agreement to enter into a Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-Business Combination 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. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect a Business Combination.

  

The Company will provide its shareholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their shares included in the Public Units sold in the Initial Public Offering (the “Public Shares”) upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a shareholder 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, solely in its discretion. The shareholders will be entitled to redeem their shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then on deposit in the Trust Account (initially approximately $10.00 per share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations).

 

The ordinary shares subject to redemption are recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon consummation of such a Business Combination and a majority of the issued and outstanding shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other legal 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 Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, a shareholder approval of the transaction is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or other legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Initial Shareholders (defined in Note 5- Related Party Transactions) have agreed to vote their initial shares and private shares, as well as any public shares acquired in or after the Initial Public Offering, in favor of any proposed business combination. Additionally, each public shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction.

 

The Company will have until December 22, 2019 to consummate a Business Combination (the “Combination Period”). If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, it will trigger the automatic winding up, dissolution and liquidation pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. The amount in the Trust Account (less the aggregate nominal par value of the shares of the Company’s public shareholders) under the Companies Law will be treated as share premium which is distributable under the Companies Law provided that immediately following the date on which the proposed distribution is proposed to be made, the Company is able to pay the debts as they fall due in the ordinary course of business. If the Company is forced to liquidate the Trust Account, the public shareholders would be distributed the amount in the Trust Account calculated as of the date that is two days prior to the distribution date (including any accrued interest).

   

The Initial Shareholders have agreed to (i) waive their conversion rights with respect to their Initial Shares, private shares and Public Shares in connection with the consummation of a Business Combination, (ii) to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to their initial shares and private placement shares if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within the Combination Period and (iii) 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 shares in conjunction with any such amendment.

 

On April 15, 2019, the Company entered into a Business Combination Agreement (as may be amended from time to time, the “Business Combination Agreement”) with Brooge Holdings Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Pubco”), Brooge Merger Sub Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pubco (“Merger Sub”), Brooge Petroleum And Gas Investment Company FZE, a company formed under the laws of the Fujairah Free Zone, UAE (“BPGIC”), and each of the holders of BPGIC’s outstanding capital shares that become parties to the Business Combination Agreement by executing a joinder agreement to the Business Combination Agreement (a “Joinder”). On May 10, 2019, BPGIC’s sole shareholder, Brooge Petroleum and Gas Investment Company (BPGIC) PLC (“Seller”), executed and delivered to the Company, BPGIC and Pubco, a Joinder.

On April 15, 2019, the Company changed the ticker symbols for the Company’s units, ordinary shares, warrants and rights trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market from “TWLVU,” “TWLV,” “TWLVW” and “TWLVR,” respectively, to “BROGU,” “BROG,” “BROGW,” and “BROGR,” respectively.

 

Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, at the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement (the “Closing”), (a) the Company will merge with Merger Sub, with the Company continuing as the surviving entity, and with all holders of the Company’s securities receiving substantially identical securities of Pubco, and (b) Pubco will acquire all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of BPGIC in exchange for ordinary shares of Pubco, with BPGIC becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pubco.

 

The total consideration to be paid by Pubco to Seller will be 100,000,000 Pubco ordinary shares, subject to reduction to the extent that BPGIC elects for the Sellers to receive a portion of the consideration for the purchased shares as cash in lieu of receiving Pubco ordinary shares in an amount not to exceed 40% of the Closing Net Cash (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement); provided that 20,000,000 of the Pubco shares otherwise issuable to Seller at the Closing will be set aside in escrow and delivered to the escrow agent at the Closing, with such escrow shares subject to vesting and potential forfeiture based on terms set forth in an escrow agreement mutually agreed by the Company and BPGIC (the “Escrow Agreement”). In addition, the Initial Shareholders of the Company have agreed to forfeit 20% of the ordinary shares of the Company they received prior to the Initial Public Offering (the “Founder Shares”) at the Closing and escrow 30% of their Founder Shares at the Closing, subject to the same vesting and forfeiture conditions as the Seller.

 

On April 30, 2019, the Company and BPGIC entered into a letter agreement pursuant to which (a) the due date was extended from April 30, 2019 to May 10, 2019 (or such later date prior to the Closing as mutually agreed by the Company and BPGIC) for (i) Pubco, Seller and the escrow agent to enter into the Escrow Agreement, (ii) BPGIC to deliver the Company Schedules (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement), and (iii) BPGIC to deliver the Joinder Documents (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) for each shareholder of BPGIC, and (b) the date on and after which the Company has a right to terminate the Business Combination Agreement if the deliverables specified in clause (a) above are not timely provided was also extended from April 30, 2019 to May 10, 2019 (or such later date prior to the Closing as mutually agreed by the Company and BPGIC.)

 

On May 10, 2019 as required by the Business Combination Agreement, (i) Pubco, Seller and Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company, as escrow agent, entered into the Escrow Agreement, (ii) BPGIC timely delivered to the Company the Company Schedules, and (iii) as noted above, Seller delivered the Joinder and the other Joinder Documents.

 

On June 13, 2019 the Company and BPGIC filed an investor presentation with the SEC to be used in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement.

 

On September 16, 2019, the Company, Pubco, BPGIC and Seller entered into an amendment to the Business Combination Agreement in order to, among other things, provide for the following: (i) the extension of the Outside Date from “August 31, 2019” to “December 22, 2019”; (ii) the addition of a termination right exercisable by either the Company or BPGIC, if the first preliminary registration statement is not submitted to the SEC by or on September 30, 2019, provided that such termination right shall cease upon the submission of such preliminary registration statement to the SEC after September 30, 2019; and (iii) the revision of the proposed terms of the post-closing voting agreement in favor of Seller, which is to be entered into by the Company’s sponsor and certain other Initial Shareholders of the Company, to provide that the voting rights and restrictions thereunder shall apply to the Pubco ordinary shares and other voting securities of Pubco issuable to such shareholders upon the conversion or exercise of their (x) Founder Shares, (y) the shares comprising or underlying the Private Units of the Company that were issued to such Initial Shareholders in the Private Placements concurrently with the Company’s Initial Public Offering and (z) the securities of the Company and Pubco that such Initial Shareholders acquire or agree to acquire prior to the Closing.

 

On September 27, 2019, Pubco filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form F-4 (as amended, the “ Registration Statement ”), which included a preliminary proxy statement of the Company and a prospectus in connection with the proposed Business Combination involving the Company, Pubco, BPGIC and Seller. Following the effectiveness of the Registration Statement, the Company will mail a definitive proxy statement and other relevant documents to its shareholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the Business Combination.

 

On October 8, 2019, the Company and Pubco filed an updated investor presentation with the SEC to be used in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement.

 

Liquidation

 

The holders of the initial shares will not participate in any liquidation distribution with respect to such securities. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be less than the $10.00 per Unit in the Initial Public Offering. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, Dimitri Elkin, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, has contractually agreed, pursuant to a written agreement to the Company, that if the Company liquidates the Trust Account prior to the consummation of a Business Combination, he will be liable to ensure that the proceeds in the Trust Account are not reduced by the claims of target businesses or claims of vendors or other entities that are owed money by the Company for services rendered or contracted for or products sold to the Company. 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. Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, then Dimitri Elkin will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that Dimitri Elkin will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (other than the Company’s independent auditors), 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.

The Company will pay the costs of liquidating the Trust Account from the remaining assets outside of the Trust Account. If such funds are insufficient, Bryant Edwards, the Company’s COO, has contractually agreed to advance the Company the funds necessary to complete such liquidation (currently anticipated to be no more than approximately $20,000) and has contractually agreed not to seek repayment for such expenses.

 

Liquidity

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had cash outside the Trust Account of $43,368 available for working capital needs. All remaining cash and securities were held in the Trust Account and is generally unavailable for the Company’s use, prior to an initial Business Combination, and is restricted for use either in a Business Combination or to redeem Public Shares. As of September 30, 2019, none of the amount on deposit in the Trust Account was available to be withdrawn as described above.

 

Through September 30, 2019, the Company’s liquidity needs were satisfied through receipt of $25,000 from the sale of the insider shares, advances from the Sponsor in an aggregate amount of $300,000 which were repaid upon the IPO (as described in Note 5) and the remaining net proceeds from the IPO and Private Placement (as described in Note 3 and 4).

 

On April 4, 2019, the Company issued a Convertible Note (as described in Note 5) in the principal amount of up to $500,000 to the Sponsor, the balance of which will be repaid promptly after the date on which the Company consummates a Business Combination. In the event that the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination, the loans must be repaid to the extent that the Company is financially able to do so with cash at its disposal outside of the Trust Account. As of September 30, 2019, the Sponsor had funded an aggregate amount of $500,000 to the Company pursuant to the Convertible Note.

 

On October 21, 2019, the Company issued a Non-Convertible Note (as described in Note 5) in the principal amount of up to $300,000 to the Sponsor, the balance of which will be repaid promptly after the date on which the Company consummates a Business Combination. In the event that the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination, the loans must be repaid to the extent that the Company is financially able to do so with cash at its disposal outside of the Trust Account. As of October 25, 2019, the Sponsor had funded an aggregate amount of $200,000 to the Company pursuant to the Non-Convertible Note.

 

The Company’s working capital consists of the $43,368 outside of our Trust Account as of September 30, 2019. The Company may also draw down on up to $300,000 in loans from the Sponsor pursuant to the Non-Convertible Note issued on October 21, 2019. The Company has incurred and expects to continue to incur significant costs in pursuit of the Company’s Business Combination plans. The Company cannot provide assurance that the Business Combination will be successful. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Until consummation of its Business Combination, the Company will be using the funds not held in the Trust Account, and any additional Working Capital Loans from the Initial Shareholders, the Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors, or their respective affiliates, for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to acquire and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination. 

 

The Company currently estimates that it has insufficient funds available to both operate its business and consummate its initial business combination. The Company may need to obtain additional financing either to consummate its initial business combination or because it becomes obligated to redeem a significant number of its public shares upon consummation of its initial business combination, in which case the Company may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such business combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, the Company would only consummate such financing simultaneously with the consummation of its initial business combination. Following the Company’s initial business combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, the Company may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet its obligations but there is no assurance that new financing will be available to the Company on commercially acceptable terms. Furthermore, if the Company is not able to consummate a business combination by December 22, 2019, it will trigger the Company’s automatic winding up, liquidation and dissolution. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

  

Note 2 - Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company are presented in U.S. dollars in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) and pursuant to the accounting and disclosure rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made that are necessary to present fairly the financial position, and the results of its operations and its cash flows. Operating results as presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for a full year.

Emerging Growth Company Status

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”), as modified by the Jumpstart our Business Startups Act of 2012, (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and 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 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.

 

Offering Costs

 

The Company complies with the requirements of the ASC 340-10-S99-1 and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) Topic 5A - “Expenses of Offering”. Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the Public Offering and that were charged to shareholders’ equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. Accordingly, offering costs totaling $8,593,124 have been charged to shareholders’ equity during the year ended December 31, 2018 (consisting of $4,140,000 in underwriters’ fees, plus $703,124 of other cash expenses, and a non-cash charge of $3,750,000 to record the fair value of the representative shares (as described in Note 7 - Commitments & Contingencies)).

  

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

  

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company had $43,368 of cash held outside of the Trust Account as of September 30, 2019 and $252,927 as of December 31, 2018. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018. 

 

Investment Held in Trust Account

 

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

 

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

 

9

 

 

Premiums and discounts are amortized or accreted over the life of the related held-to-maturity security as an adjustment to yield using the effective-interest method. Such amortization and accretion is included in the “interest income” line item in the condensed statements of operations. Interest income is recognized when earned.

   

Fair Value Measurements

 

FASB ASC Topic 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” defines fair value, the methods used to measure fair value and the expanded disclosures about 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 the buyer and the seller at the measurement date. In determining fair value, the valuation techniques consistent with the market approach, income approach and cost approach shall be used to measure fair value. FASB ASC Topic 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy for inputs, which represent the assumptions used by the buyer and seller in pricing the asset or liability. These inputs are further defined as observable and unobservable inputs. Observable inputs are those that buyer and seller would use in pricing the asset or liability based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s assumptions about the inputs that the buyer and seller would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. 

 

The fair value hierarchy is categorized into three levels based on the inputs as follows:

 

Level 1 - Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access. Valuation adjustments and block discounts are not being applied. Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these securities does not entail a significant degree of judgment.
   
Level 2 - Valuations based on (i) quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities, (ii) quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets, (iii) inputs other than quoted prices for the assets or liabilities, or (iv) inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by market through correlation or other means.
   
Level 3 - Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.

 

The fair value of the Company’s certain assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the condensed balance sheet. The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, prepaid assets, accounts payable and accrued expenses, due to related parties and Sponsor loans are estimated to approximate the carrying values as of September 30, 2019 due to the short maturities of such instruments.

 

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities that were measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques the Company utilized to determine such fair value as of September 30, 2019.

Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

 

The Company accounts for its ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as a liability instrument and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable ordinary shares (including 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, ordinary shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. The Company’s ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed balance sheets.

 

Warrants and Rights

 

Since the Company is not required to net cash settle the Warrants and Rights (as defined in Note 3 - Initial Public Offering) and the Warrants and Rights are exercisable or convertible upon the consummation of an initial Business Combination, the management determined that the Warrants and Rights will be classified within shareholders’ equity as “Additional paid-in capital” upon their issuance in accordance with ASC 815-40. The proceeds from the sale will be allocated to Public Shares, Warrants, and Rights based on the relative fair value of the securities in accordance with 470-20-30. The value of the Public Shares, Warrants, and Rights will be based on the closing price paid by investors.

 

Net Income per Ordinary Share

 

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” Net income per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of ordinary shares issued and outstanding for the periods. In accordance with SAB Topic 4.D and ASC 260-10-55-12, weighted average shares were retrospectively stated for the 1,437,500 ordinary shares cancelled on June 1, 2018, effectuation of a 1.5-for-1 stock dividend on June 8, 2018, and effectuation of a 1.2-for-1 stock dividend on June 19, 2018 (see Note 5). In accordance with ASC 260-10-45-13, weighted average shares were reduced for the effect of up to an aggregate of 50,000 ordinary shares that are subject to forfeiture by the underwriter on a pro rata basis with the initial shareholders in the event that the initial shareholders are required to forfeit or transfer any Insider Shares to third parties for no consideration or otherwise restructure the terms of such shares in connection with the initial Business Combination. At September 30, 2019, the Company did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into ordinary shares and then share in the income of the Company. As a result, diluted income per ordinary share is the same as basic income per ordinary shares for the periods presented.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which at times, may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740 Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim period, disclosure and transition. The Company has identified the Cayman Islands as its only “major” tax jurisdiction, as defined. Based on the Company’s evaluation, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s financial statements. Since the Company was incorporated on November 30, 2017, the evaluation was performed for the 2018 tax year which will be the only period subject to examination. The Company believes that its income tax positions and deductions would be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that would result in a material changes to its financial position. The Company’s policy for recording interest and penalties associated with audits is to record such items as a component of income tax expense.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

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

 

Note 3 - Initial Public Offering

 

Pursuant to the Initial Public Offering on June 22, 2018, the Company sold 18,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit. On June 28, 2018, in connection with the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full, the Company consummated the sale of an additional 2,700,000 Public Units at $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one ordinary share, one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”), and one right (“Public Right”). Each redeemable warrant entitles the holder to purchase one ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 (see Note 8). Each holder of a right will automatically receive one-tenth (1/10) of an ordinary share upon consummation of a Business Combination (see Note 8).

  

Note 4 - Private Placements

 

Simultaneously with the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor purchased an aggregate of 475,000 Private Units at $10.00 per Unit (for a total purchase price of $4,750,000). On June 28, 2018, in connection with the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full, the Company consummated the sale of an additional 54,000 Private Units at $10.00 per Unit (for a total purchase price of $540,000).

 

The Private Units are identical to the units sold in the Initial Public Offering except the Private Warrants (as defined in Note 8) will be non-redeemable and may be exercised on a cashless basis. The purchasers of the Private Units have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Private Units or underlying securities (except to the same permitted transferees as the insider shares) until the completion of the Business Combination.

 

If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds of the sale of the Private Units will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law).

 

Note 5 - Related Party Transactions

 

Insider Shares

 

On December 11, 2017, the Company issued 4,312,500 shares (“Insider Shares”) to the Sponsor and certain officers and directors (“Initial Shareholders”) for an aggregate amount of $25,000. On June 1, 2018, the Initial Shareholders returned 1,437,500 ordinary shares to the Company for cancellation. On June 8, 2018, the Company effectuated a 1.5-for-1 dividend of its ordinary shares in connection with the upsized Initial Public Offering, resulting in 4,312,500 Insider Shares outstanding and held by the Initial Shareholders. On June 19, 2018, the Company effectuated a 1.2-for-1 dividend of its ordinary shares resulting in an aggregate of 5,175,000 Insider Shares outstanding and held by the Initial Shareholders. None of the transactions mentioned above materially impacts the market value of the shares presented in the Company’s historical financial statements, nor do they impact the market value of $10.00 per Unit regardless of the number of shares outstanding. Therefore, according to accounting literature ASC 505-20-25, this transaction is not a stock split in substance, and no retroactive adjustments to the shares outstanding presented in prior periods is required. As a result of the underwriters’ over-allotment option exercised in full on June 28, 2018, 675,000 Insider Shares are no longer subject to forfeiture and the initial shareholders maintained 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering and the exercise of the over-allotment.

 

The Initial Shareholders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Insider Shares (except to certain permitted transferees) until (1) with respect to 50% of the Insider Shares, the earlier of one year after the date of the consummation of the Business Combination and the date on which the closing price of the ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.50 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations and recapitalizations) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing after the Business Combination and (2) with respect to the remaining 50% of the Insider Shares, one year after the date of the consummation of the Business Combination, or earlier, in either case, if, subsequent to the Business Combination, the Company consummates a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.

  

Related Party Advances

 

As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the amount due to related parties was $71,672 and $124,293, respectively. The amount includes unpaid reimbursements for travel and business expenses incurred by the officers on behalf of the Company.

 

For the period from November 30, 2017 through December 31, 2017, a related party, on behalf of the Sponsor, had advanced to the Company an aggregate of $46,500 in regards to the formation costs and costs associated with the Initial Public Offering. On May 22, 2018, the Sponsor advanced to the Company an additional $150,000. On June 1, 2018, two related parties, on behalf of the sponsor, advanced to the Company an aggregate of $60,000. On June 18, 2018, the Sponsor advanced to the Company an additional $43,500. The loans were non-interest bearing, unsecured and due on demand. The Company repaid the Sponsor in full with $300,000 from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering not being placed in the Trust Account on June 22, 2018.

Related Party Loans

 

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, or the Company’s officers and directors, or their respective affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds from time to time or at any time (“Working Capital Loans”). Each Working Capital Loan, other than as described below, would be evidenced by a promissory note. The Working Capital Loans would either be paid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the holder’s discretion, up to $500,000 of the Working Capital Loans may be converted upon consummation of a Business Combination into Private Units at a price of $10.00 per unit (which, for example, would result in the holders being issued units to acquire 55,000 ordinary shares (which includes 5,000 ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of rights) and warrants to purchase 50,000 ordinary shares for $11.50 per share if $500,000 of notes were so converted).

 

On April 4, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note (the “Convertible Note”) in the principal amount of up to $500,000 to the Sponsor. The Convertible Note bears no interest and is repayable in full upon consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination. In the event that the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination, the loans must be repaid to the extent that the Company is financially able to do so with cash at its disposal outside of the Trust Account. The Sponsor has the option to convert any unpaid balance of the Convertible Note into units, each unit consisting of one ordinary share of the Company, one warrant exercisable for one ordinary share of the Company and one right to receive one-tenth (1/10) of one ordinary share of the Company upon the consummation of an initial Business Combination, based on a conversion price of $10.00 per unit. The terms of any such units shall be identical to the terms of the units issued pursuant to the private placement that was consummated by the Company in connection with the Company’s Initial Public Offering.

 

As of September 30, 2019, the Sponsor had funded an aggregate amount of $500,000 to the Company pursuant to the Convertible Note.

 

On October 21, 2019, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note (the “Non-Convertible Note”) in the principal amount of up to $300,000 to the Sponsor. The Non-Convertible Note bears no interest and is repayable in full upon consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination. In the event that the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination, the loans must be repaid to the extent that the Company is financially able to do so with cash at its disposal outside of the Trust Account.

 

As of October 25, 2019, the Sponsor had funded an aggregate amount of $200,000 to the Company pursuant to the Non-Convertible Note.

 

Administrative Service Fee

 

The Company has agreed to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor, a monthly fee of an aggregate of $10,000 for general and administrative services (commencing June 20, 2018) including office space, utilities and secretarial support. As of January 1, 2019, the Company has terminated this arrangement. As of March 31, 2019, the Company has paid off all outstanding payables to the affiliate of the Sponsor.

 

Note 6 - Investment Held in Trust Account

Note 7 - Commitments & Contingencies

 

Deferred Fees

 

The Company has committed to pay its attorney deferred legal fees upon the consummation of the Initial Business Combination relating to legal services performed in connection with the proposed business combination. An aggregate of $562,303 and $29,613 have been accrued in the accompanying balance sheets as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, and are due and payable upon consummation of business combination. In the event that the Company is unable to consummate a business combination, as described in the prospectus relating to the IPO, the deferred fees will not be paid.

  

Registration Rights

 

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on June 19, 2018, the holders of the Insider Shares, Private Units (and their underlying securities), Representative Shares (as a defined below) and any Units that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans (and their underlying securities) will be entitled to registration rights. The holders of a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to two 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. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

Underwriters Agreement

 

The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 2,700,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at the Initial Public Offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On June 28, 2018, the underwriters exercised its full over-allotment option of 2,700,000 Units.

 

The underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of two percent (2.0%) of the gross proceeds of the Initial Public Offering, or $3,600,000. In relation to the additional 2,700,000 Units the underwriters purchased via the over-allotment option, an additional amount of $540,000 was paid to the underwriters.

 

In addition, the Company issued EarlyBirdCapital “EBC”, the underwriter, and/or its designees 375,000 ordinary shares (the “Representative Shares”) upon the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. The Company accounted for the Representative Shares as an expense of the Initial Public Offering resulting in a charge directly to shareholders’ equity. The Company determined the fair value of Representative Shares is $3,750,000 based upon the offering price of the Units of $10.00 per Unit. The underwriter has agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any such shares until the completion of a Business Combination. In addition, the underwriter (and/or its designees) has agreed (i) to waive its redemption rights with respect to such shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) to waive its rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. In the event that the Initial Shareholders are required to forfeit or transfer any Insider Shares to third parties for no consideration or otherwise restructure the terms of such shares in connection with the initial Business Combination, the underwriter (and/or its designees) has agreed to forfeit up to an aggregate of 50,000 ordinary shares on a pro rata basis with the Initial Shareholders.

 

The shares have been deemed compensation by FINRA and are therefore subject to a lock-up for a period of 180 days pursuant to Rule 5110(g)(1) of FINRA’s NASD Conduct Rules. Pursuant to FINRA Rule 5110(g)(1), these securities will not be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put or call transaction that would result in the economic disposition of the securities by any person for a period of 180 days immediately following the date of the Initial Public Offering, nor may they be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated for a period of 180 days immediately following the Initial Public Offering except to any underwriter and selected dealer participating in the Initial Public Offering and their bona fide officers or partners.

 

Business Combination Marketing Agreement

 

The Company has engaged EBC as an advisor in connection with a Business Combination to assist the Company in holding meetings with its shareholders to discuss a potential Business Combination and the target business’ attributes, introduce the Company to potential investors that are interested in purchasing securities, assist the Company in obtaining shareholder approval for the Business Combination and assist the Company with its press releases and public filings in connection with an Business Combination. The Company will pay EBC a cash fee equal to 3.5% of the gross proceeds raised in the offering for such services upon the consummation of the Business Combination (exclusive of any applicable finders’ fees which might become payable). The Company may allocate up to 1% of the 3.5% fee to other firms who assist in connection with the Business Combination.

Note 8 - Shareholder’s Equity

 

Ordinary Shares - The Company is authorized to issue a total of 200,000,000 ordinary shares of a par value of $0.0001 each. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company has issued an aggregate of 6,120,045 and 6,351,330 ordinary shares, respectively, excluding 20,658,955 and 20,427,670 shares of ordinary shares subject to possible redemption.

 

Preferred Shares - The Company is authorized to issue a total of 2,000,000 preferred shares of a par value of $0.0001 each. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, there were no shares of preferred shares issued or outstanding.

  

Warrants - Each Public Warrant is at $11.50 per share and exercisable for one ordinary share. The warrants will become exercisable on the later of the completion of a Business Combination and 12 months from the date of the prospectus. If a registration statement covering the ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the public warrants is not effective within 90 days following the consummation of the Business Combination, public warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when we shall have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a cashless basis pursuant to an available exemption from registration under the Securities Act. In such event, each holder would pay the exercise price by surrendering the warrants for that number of ordinary shares equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of the number of ordinary shares underlying the warrants, multiplied by the difference between the exercise price of the warrants and the “fair market value” (defined below) by (y) the fair market value. The “fair market value” shall mean the average reported last sale price of the ordinary shares for the 10 trading days ending on the day prior to the date of exercise.

 

The warrants underlying the Private Units (“Private Warrants”) are identical to the Public Warrants sold in this offering except the Private Warrants will be non-redeemable and may be exercised on a cashless basis, in each case so long as they continue to be held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees.

 

The Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (excluding the Private Warrants), in whole and not in part, at a price of $0.01 per warrant:

 

  at any time while the warrants are exercisable,

 

  upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption,

 

  if, and only if, the last sales price of the ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30 trading day period ending three business days before we send the notice of redemption, and

 

  if, and only if, there is a current registration statement in effect with respect to the ordinary shares underlying such warrants at the time of redemption and for the entire 30-day trading period referred to above and continuing each day thereafter until the date of redemption.

 

If the Company calls the warrants for redemption as described above, the management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise warrants to do so on a “cashless basis.”

 

Rights - Except in cases where the Company is not the surviving company in a Business Combination, each holder of a right will automatically receive one-tenth (1/10) of an ordinary share upon consummation of the initial Business Combination, even if the holder of a Public Right converted all ordinary shares held by him, her or it in connection with the initial Business Combination or an amendment to the Company’s memorandum and articles of association with respect to its pre-business combination activities. In the event that the Company will not be the surviving company upon completion of the initial Business Combination, each holder of a right will be required to affirmatively convert his, her or its rights in order to receive the one-tenth (1/10) of a share underlying each right upon consummation of the Business Combination. No additional consideration will be required to be paid by a holder of rights in order to receive his, her or its additional ordinary shares upon consummation of an initial Business Combination. The shares issuable upon exchange of the rights will be freely tradable (except to the extent held by affiliates of the Company). If the Company enters into a definitive agreement for a Business Combination in which the Company will not be the surviving entity, the definitive agreement will provide for the holders of rights to receive the same per share consideration the holders of ordinary shares will receive in the transaction on an as-converted into ordinary shares basis.

 

The Company will not issue fractional shares in connection with an exchange of rights. Fractional shares will either be rounded down to the nearest whole share or otherwise addressed in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Cayman Islands law. As a result, the holders of the rights must hold rights in multiples of 10 in order to receive shares for all of the holders’ rights upon closing of a Business Combination. If the Company is unable to complete an initial Business Combination within the required time period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the trust account, holders of rights will not receive any of such funds with respect to their rights, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the trust account with respect to such rights, and the rights will expire worthless. Further, there are no contractual penalties for failure to deliver securities to the holders of the rights upon consummation of an initial Business Combination. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the rights. Accordingly, the rights may expire worthless.

  

Note 9 – Subsequent Events

 

On October 21, 2019, the Company issued a Non-Convertible Note (as described in Note 5) in the principal amount of up to $300,000 to the Sponsor, the balance of which will be repaid promptly after the date on which the Company consummates a Business Combination. In the event that the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination, the loans must be repaid to the extent that the Company is financially able to do so with cash at its disposal outside of the Trust Account. As of October 25, 2019, the Sponsor had funded an aggregate amount of $200,000 to the Company pursuant to the Non-Convertible Note.

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

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements. 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 Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings. References to “we”, “us”, “our” or the “Company” are to Twelve Seas Investment Company, except where the context requires otherwise. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our condensed financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this report.

 

Overview

 

We were formed on November 30, 2017 as a blank check company for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business combination, with one or more target businesses. Our efforts to identify a prospective target business are not limited to any particular industry or geographic location.

 

We presently have no revenue, have net income in current period and have had no operations other than the active solicitation of a target business with which to complete a business combination. We have relied upon the sale of our securities and loans from the Sponsor, our officers and directors to fund our operations.

 

On June 22, 2018, we consummated our IPO of 18,000,000 Units. Each Unit consists of one Ordinary Share, one redeemable Public Warrant and one Right to receive 1/10 of an Ordinary Share upon the consummation of our initial Business Combination. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $180,000,000. The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 2,700,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any. On June 22, 2018, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, we consummated a private placement with our Sponsor of 475,000 Private Units at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit, generating total proceeds of $4,750,000. The underwriters exercised the over-allotment option in full on June 28, 2018 and purchased 2,700,000 over-allotment option Units at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $27,000,000. On June 28, 2018, simultaneously with the sale of the over-allotment Units, the Company consummated the private sale of an additional 54,000 Private Units to our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $540,000.

 

As of September 30, 2019, a total of $212,845,645 was held in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public shareholders, which included $207,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO (including the full exercise of the over-allotment option) and the Private Placements and subsequent interest and dividend income.

 

Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of IPO and the Private Placements, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally towards consummating a Business Combination.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our entire activity from inception up to June 22, 2018 was related to the Company’s formation and IPO. Since the IPO, our activity has been limited to the evaluation of business combination candidates and consummation of the business combination, and we will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial Business Combination. We expect to continue to generate small amounts of non-operating income in the form of interest income and dividend income on cash and investments. We expect to continue 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 and business combination expenses. We expect our expenses to increase substantially after this period.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we had a net income of $652,563, which was comprised of dividend income of $1,117,956, net of operating costs of $465,393.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, we had a net income of $874,795, which was comprised of interest income of $1,080,211, net of operating costs of $205,416.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we had a net income of $2,312,841, which was comprised of interest and dividend income of $3,617,353, net of operating costs of $1,304,512.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we had a net income of $910,019, which was comprised of interest income of $1,122,633, net of operating costs of $212,614.

  

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2019, we had cash outside our Trust Account of $43,368, available for working capital needs. All remaining cash was held in the Trust Account and is generally unavailable for our use, prior to an initial Business Combination.

 

Our liquidity needs have been satisfied to date through receipt of $25,000 from the sale of the insider shares, advances from the Sponsor in an aggregate amount of $300,000 which were repaid upon the IPO and the remaining net proceeds from the IPO and Private Placement. Additionally, as of September 30, 2019, our Sponsor had loaned to us an aggregate of $500,000 pursuant to the Convertible Note, which will be repaid promptly after the date to which we consummate a Business Combination.

 

On October 21, 2019, we issued the Non-Convertible Note (see Note 5) in the principal amount of up to $300,000 to the Sponsor. The Non-Convertible Note bears no interest and is repayable in full upon consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination.

 

We intend to use substantially all of the net proceeds of the IPO, including the funds held in the Trust Account, and any additional Working Capital Loans from the Initial Shareholders, the Company’s officers and directors, or their respective affiliates, to acquire a target business or businesses and to pay our expenses relating thereto, including a cash fee equal to 3.5% of the gross proceeds of the IPO payable to the representative of the underwriters upon consummation of our initial Business Combination for assisting us in connection with such Business Combination. To the extent that our share capital is used in whole or in part as consideration to effect our initial Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account as well as any other net proceeds not expended will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business. Such working capital funds could be used in a variety of ways including continuing or expanding the target business’ operations, for strategic acquisitions and for marketing, research and development of existing or new products. Such funds could also be used to repay any operating expenses or finders’ fees which we had incurred prior to the completion of our initial Business Combination if the funds available to us outside of the Trust Account were insufficient to cover such expenses.

 

We anticipate that the approximately $43,368 outside of our Trust Account as of September 30, 2019 will not be sufficient to allow us to operate before a business combination is consummated or our automatic winding up, dissolution and liquidation. Over this time period, we will be using these funds for identifying and evaluating prospective business combination candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to consummate our initial Business Combination with and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

 

The Company currently estimates that it has insufficient funds available to both operate its business and consummate its initial Business Combination. The Company may need to obtain additional financing either to consummate its initial Business Combination or because it becomes obligated to redeem a significant number of its public shares upon consummation of its initial Business Combination, in which case the Company 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 but there is no assurance that new financing will be available to us on commercially acceptable terms. Furthermore, if we are not able to consummate a Business Combination by December 22, 2019, it will trigger our automatic winding up, liquidation and dissolution. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Financing Arrangements

 

As of September 30, 2019, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements. We have no obligations, assets or liabilities which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements. We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or entered into any non-financial assets.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Management’s discussion and analysis of our results of operations and liquidity and capital resources are based on our unaudited financial information. We describe our significant accounting policies in Note 2 - Significant Accounting Policies, of the Notes to Financial Statements included in this report. Our unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Certain of our accounting policies require that management apply significant judgments in defining the appropriate assumptions integral to financial estimates. On an ongoing basis, management reviews the accounting policies, assumptions, estimates and judgments to ensure that our financial statements are presented fairly and in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Judgments are based on historical experience, terms of existing contracts, industry trends and information available from outside sources, as appropriate. However, by their nature, judgments are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty, and, therefore, actual results could differ from our estimates.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

All activity through September 30, 2019 related to our formation, Initial Public Offering, search for prospective targets to effect a business combination and negotiating the terms of the initial Business Combination. We did not have any financial instruments that were exposed to market risks at September 30, 2019. 

 

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 such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer have concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

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. 

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended September 30, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

 

As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report filed with the SEC on March 29, 2019 except as we may disclose changes to such factors or disclose additional factors from time to time in our future filings with the SEC. 

 

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS.

 

Use of Proceeds from the Public Offering

 

On June 22, 2018, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering in which it sold 18,000,000 Units, with each Unit consisting of one ordinary share, one right to receive 1/10 of one ordinary share, and one warrant to purchase one ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. The Units in the Initial Public Offering were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per unit, generating total gross proceeds of approximately $180,000,000.

 

On June 28, 2018, the Company consummated the sale of an additional 2,700,000 Units, with each Unit consisting of one ordinary share, one right to receive 1/10 of one ordinary share, and one warrant to purchase one ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share, pursuant to the underwriters’ over-allotment exercise. The additional Units in the Initial Public Offering were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating additional total gross proceeds of approximately $27,000,000.

 

The securities sold in the Public Offering were registered under the Securities Act on registration statements on Form S-1 (No. 333-225352 and 333-225732). The SEC declared the registration statements effective on June 19, 2018.

 

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, the Company incurred offering costs of $8,593,124 (consisting of $4,140,000 in underwriters’ fees, plus $703,124 of other cash expenses, and a non-cash charge of $3,750,000 to record the fair value of the representative shares (as described in Note 7 - Commitments & Contingencies)). Other incurred offering costs consisted principally of formation and preparation fees related to the Initial Public Offering. Prior to the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor had made $300,000 in loans to the Company. The Company repaid the Sponsor in full with $300,000 from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering not being placed in the Trust Account on June 22, 2018.

 

After deducting the underwriting fee, the Initial Public Offering expenses and repayment of the Sponsor Loan, the total net proceeds from our Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement Units was $207,464,150 of which $207,000,000 was placed in the Trust Account. As of September 30, 2019, $43,368 in cash was held outside the Trust Account and can be used to fund the Company’s operating expenses. The net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Units are held in the Trust Account and have been invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less or 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.
