NOTE 4. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares and Sponsor Shares

On February 9, 2021, an affiliate of the Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 to cover certain offering expenses of the Company in exchange for the issuance of (i) 1,250 shares of the Class A common stock, (ii) 1,250 shares of the Company’s Class V common stock and (iii) 1,250 Class A Units of Opco. On February 10, 2021, the Sponsor acquired 7,187,500 Class B Units of Opco (which are profits interest only units) and 7,187,500 shares of the Company’s Class V common stock for no consideration. Also in February 2021, the Company paid $12,500 in exchange for 1,250 Class A Units of Opco. In October 2021, the Sponsor surrendered to the Company for no consideration 1,437,500 Class B Units of Opco and 1,437,500 shares of Class V common stock, resulting in an aggregate of 5,750,000 Class B Units of Opco and 5,751,250 shares of Class V common stock issued and outstanding.

The Company refers to the 5,750,000 Class B Units of Opco (or the Class A Units of Opco into which such Class B Units will convert) and corresponding number of shares of Class V common stock collectively as the “Founder Shares”. The Founder Shares consist of Class B Units of Opco (and any Class A Units of Opco into which such Class B Units are converted) and a corresponding number of shares of Class V common stock, which together will be exchangeable for shares of the Company’s Class A common stock after the time of an initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment as provided herein. The Company refers to the 1,250 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock and the 1,250 Class A Units of Opco and a corresponding number of shares of the Company’s non-economic Class V common stock (which together will be exchangeable into shares of Class A common stock after an initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis) collectively as the “Sponsor Shares”.

The Initial Stockholders have agreed to forfeit up to 750,000 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option is not exercised in full by the underwriter. The forfeiture will be adjusted to the extent that the over-allotment option is not exercised in full by the underwriter so that the Founder Shares will represent 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering (excluding the Sponsor Shares). Pursuant to the exercise of the underwriter's over-allotment option in full, the 750,000 Founder Shares are no longer subject to forfeiture.

The Class B Units of Opco will convert into Class A Units of Opco in connection with an initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like and subject to further adjustment. The Founder Shares consist of Class B Units of Opco (and any Class A Units of Opco into which such Class B Units are converted) and a corresponding number of shares of Class V common stock, which together will be exchangeable for shares of Class A common stock after the time of the initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis (subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), and subject to further adjustment. If additional shares of Class A common stock, or equity-linked securities, are issued or deemed issued in excess of the amounts sold in the Initial Public Offering and related to the closing of a Business Combination, the number of Class A Units of Opco into which the Class B Units of Opco will convert may be adjusted (unless the holders of a majority of the outstanding Founder Shares agree to waive such adjustment with respect to any such issuance or deemed issuance) so that the number of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exchange of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-exchanged basis, 20% of the sum of the total outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock upon completion of the Initial Public Offering (excluding the Sponsor Shares and any shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants), plus all shares of Class A common stock and equity-linked securities issued or deemed issued in connection with the Business Combination (excluding any shares or equity-linked securities issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the Business Combination). In addition, the number of outstanding shares of Class V common stock will be adjusted through a stock split or stock dividend so that the total number of outstanding shares of Class V common stock corresponds to the total number of Class A Units of Opco outstanding (other than those held by the Company) plus the total number of Class A Units Opco into which the outstanding Class B Units of Opco are entitled to convert.

The Initial Stockholders have agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any Founder Shares or Sponsor Shares held by them, and any shares of the Company’s Class A common stock acquired upon exchange of Founder Shares or Sponsor Shares, until one year after the date of the consummation of an initial Business Combination or earlier if, subsequent to an initial Business Combination, (i) the last sale price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after an initial Business Combination or (ii) the Company consummates a subsequent liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.

Private Placement Warrants

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 12,225,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor, including 1,200,000 Private Placement Warrants issued pursuant to the exercise of the underwriter's over-allotment option in full, generating gross proceeds of $12,225,000.  Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from 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.

Indemnity

The Sponsor has agreed that it will be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a written letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement or business combination agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below (i) $10.20 per Public Share or (ii) such lesser amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, due to reductions in value of the trust assets, in each case net of the amount of interest which may be withdrawn to pay taxes of the Company or Opco, except as to any claims by a third party or prospective target business who executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) and except as to any claims under our indemnity of the underwriter of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, then the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers, prospective target businesses and 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 any monies held in the Trust Account. The Company has not independently verified whether the Sponsor has sufficient funds to satisfy its indemnity obligations. The Company has not asked the Sponsor to reserve for such indemnification obligations as the Company believes the likelihood of the Sponsor having to indemnify the Trust Account is limited because the Company will endeavor to have all vendors and prospective target businesses as well as other entities execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

Promissory Note - Related Party

On February 9, 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Promissory Note”). This loan was non-interest bearing and payable on the earlier of (i) August 8, 2021 or (ii) the completion of the Initial Public Offering. On September 21, 2021, the Company and the Sponsor entered into an agreement to amend and restate the Promissory Note, extending the due date to the earlier of (i) February 8, 2022 or (ii) the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. For the period from February 8, 2021 (inception) through December 31, 2021, the Company borrowed an aggregate of $256,359 under the Promissory Note. Prior to the Initial Public Offering, the Company repaid an aggregate of $11,633. Immediately following the Initial Public Offering, on November 30, 2021, the Company repaid the outstanding balance under the Promissory Note of $244,726. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there was no balance outstanding under the Promissory Note.

Administrative Support Agreement

The Company entered into an agreement, commencing on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering, to reimburse an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of up to $25,000 per month for administrative support as may be reasonably required by the Company. Upon the completion of an initial Business Combination, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. The Company incurred $50,001 and $100,002 in expenses under this agreement for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. The Company paid $33,334 and $83,335 under this agreement for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. The Company incurred and paid $0 in expenses under this agreement for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and for the period from February 8, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021. The unpaid portion of this agreement as of June 30, 2022 is recorded within accrued expenses.

Working Capital Loans

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with an intended Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor or certain of the Company's officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds held in the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination is not completed, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there was no balance outstanding under the Working Capital Loans.
