Equity Distribution Agreement
On January 14, 2022, the Company entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with Canaccord Genuity LLC, as sales agent (the “Agent”). Under the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement, the Company may issue and sell its common shares, without par value, having an aggregate offering price of up to $50,000 from time to time through the Agent. The issuance and sale of the common shares under the Equity Distribution Agreement have been made, and any such future sales will be made, pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-262183), which includes an “at-the-market” (“ATM”) offering prospectus supplement (the "Prospectus Supplement"), as amended by Amendment No.1 and Amendment No.2 (defined below).
On March 24, 2022, the Company filed Amendment No. 1 to the Prospectus Supplement ("Amendment No. 1") indicating that it was, at that time, subject to “baby shelf” rules pursuant to Instruction I.B.6. of Form S-3. As such, the Company could not sell more than one-third of the aggregate market value of the voting and non-voting common equity held by non-affiliates, with such aggregate market value calculated using figures from a date or dates, as the case may be, within the preceding 60-days from the date of filing the Annual Report. Pursuant this baby shelf cap, the Company could not offer to or sell equity securities for more than one-third of its public float, which, limited the aggregate offering price pursuant to the ATM to approximately $18,111.
The Company filed Amendment No. 2 to the Prospectus Supplement (“Amendment No. 2”) on March 28, 2022, to reflect that it was no longer subject to the limitations under General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3 and, therefore, in accordance with the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement, the Company may offer and sell its common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $46,599 from time to time through the Agent.
Subject to terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement, the Agent is not required to sell any specific number or dollar amount of common shares but has agreed to act as the Company’s sales agent, using commercially reasonable efforts to sell on the Company’s behalf all of the common shares requested by the Company to be sold, consistent with the Agent’s normal trading
and sales practices, on terms mutually agreed between the Agent and the Company. The Agent is entitled to compensation under the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement at a fixed commission rate not to exceed 3.0% of the gross proceeds from each issuance and sale of common shares. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had issued and sold 11,047,567 shares pursuant to the ATM offering, for aggregate net proceeds of $22,223, which consisted of gross proceeds of $23,400 and $1,177 equity issuance costs.
As of March 31, 2022, excluding the Rock Cliff warrants, the Company had 12,877,361 of its public warrants classified as a component of equity and 4,900,000 of its private warrants recognized as liability. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $11.50 per share commencing 30 days after the closing of the Business Combination and will expire on December 18, 2025, at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, or earlier upon redemption. Once the warrants are exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding public warrants at a price of $0.01 per warrant if the last reported sales price of the Company’s common shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) 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 will send the notice of redemption to the warrant holders. The private warrants were issued in the same form as the public warrants, but they (i) are not redeemable by the Company and (ii) may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis at the holder’s option, in either case as long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees (as defined in the warrant agreement). Once a private warrant is transferred to a holder other than an affiliate or permitted transferee, it is treated as a public warrant for all purposes. The terms of the warrants may be amended in a manner that may be adverse to holders with the approval of the holders of at least a majority 50.1% of the then outstanding warrants.
In accordance to ASC 815, certain provisions of private warrants that do not meet the criteria for equity treatment are recorded as liabilities with the offset to additional paid-in capital and are measured at fair value at inception and at each reporting period in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations and comprehensive loss in the period of change.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company performed a valuation of the private warrants and as a result recorded a net gain on remeasurement for the three months ended March 31, 2022, of approximately $490 in its statement of operations.
As of March 31, 2021, the Company performed a valuation of the private warrants and as a result recorded a net loss on remeasurement for the three months ended March 31, 2021, of approximately $4,851 in its statement of operations.
