NOTE 5 — RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS


Founder Shares


In December 2018, the Company issued an aggregate of 4,312,500 ordinary shares (“Founder Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000. In August 2019, the Company effected a share capitalization pursuant to which the Company issued an additional 718,750 ordinary shares. All share and per-share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share capitalization. As a result, there were 5,031,250 shares outstanding, of which an aggregate of up to 656,250 shares were subject to forfeiture by the Initial Shareholders to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment was not exercised in full or in part, so that the Initial Shareholders would own 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering. As a result of the underwriters’ election to partially exercise their over-allotment option, 31,250 Founder Shares were forfeited and 625,000 Founder Shares are no longer subject to forfeiture, resulting in 5,000,000 ordinary shares outstanding.


The Initial Shareholders have agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier of (i) one year after the date of the consummation of a Business Combination and (ii) the date on which the closing price of the Company’s ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.50 price per share (as adjusted for share splits, share dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing 150 days after a Business Combination, or earlier if, subsequent to a Business Combination, the Company consummates a subsequent liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.


Private Placement


Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, certain of the Initial Shareholders purchased an aggregate of 6,250,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 Per Private Placement Warrant for an aggregate purchase price of $6,250,000. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50. The proceeds from the Private Placement Warrants were added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering to be held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants 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. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to the Private Placement Warrants.


The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants (i) will not be redeemable by the Company and (ii) may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis, so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or any of their permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by holders other than the initial purchasers or any of their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by the holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants. In addition, the Private Placement Warrants may not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the consummation of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions.


Promissory Note — Related Party


The Company issued an unsecured promissory note to Union Group on December 19, 2018, pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to aggregate principal amount of $200,000 (the “Promissory Note”). The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and payable on the earlier of (i) December 31, 2019, (ii) the consummation of the Initial Public Offering or (iii) the date on which the Company determined not to proceed with the Initial Public Offering. The Company borrowed $175,000 under the Promissory Note and fully repaid the balance during the three months ended December 31, 2019.


Support Services


The Company entered into an agreement, commencing on October 17, 2019 through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, to pay an affiliate of one of the Company’s directors a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and administrative support. For the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company incurred $30,000 and $25,000 in fees for these services, respectively. At December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020, $0 and $115,000 of such fee is included in accrued expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed interim balance sheets.


The Company also pays its Chief Operating Officer a $10,000 per month consulting fee, commencing on October 17, 2019 through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation. For each of the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company incurred and paid $30,000 in fees for these services.


Related Party Loans


In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Initial Shareholders, the Company’s officers, directors or their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds, from time to time or at any time, as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). Each Working Capital Loan 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 $1,500,000 of the Working Capital Loans may be converted into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts, but no proceeds from the Trust Account would be used for such repayment. There are no borrowings under the working capital loans to date. As of December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020, no Working Capital Loans were outstanding.
