Other Events.

On November 29, 2021, Beard Energy Transition Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) completed its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 23,000,000 units (the “Units”), including 3,000,000 Units that were issued pursuant to the underwriter’s full exercise of its over-allotment option. Each Unit had an offering price of $10.00 and consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), and one-half of one redeemable warrant of the Company (each such whole warrant, a “Public Warrant”). Each Public Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per share.

 

On November 29, 2021, simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 12,225,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant to Beard Energy Transition Acquisition Sponsor LLC, generating gross proceeds of $12,225,000. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase for $11.50 one share of Class A Common Stock of the Company.

 

Of the net proceeds of the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, $234,625,500, including $8,050,000 of deferred underwriting discounts and commissions, has been deposited into a U.S. based trust account at J.P.
