Registration Rights


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


Underwriting Agreement


The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 1,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at the Initial Public Offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On June 23, 2017, the underwriters elected to exercise their over-allotment option to purchase 1,500,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit.


In connection with the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the over-allotment option, the underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of $2,875,000. In addition, the underwriters deferred their fee of up to $4,025,000 until the completion of the initial Business Combination (the “Deferred Fee”). The Deferred Fee will be paid in cash upon the closing of a Business Combination from the amounts held in the Trust Account, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.


Concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters purchased an aggregate of 125,000 Private Units at $10.00 per Private Unit.


In conjunction with their investment in the Private Units, the underwriters or their designees also purchased membership interests in the Sponsor, through which the underwriters or their designees collectively have a pecuniary interest in 230,000 Founder Shares, pursuant to a separate private placement that closed simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement.
