NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Concentrations of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to credit risk consist principally of cash and investments held in Trust Account. Cash is maintained in accounts with financial institutions, which, at times may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on its cash accounts and management believes, based upon the quality of the financial institutions, that the credit risk with regard to these deposits is not significant. The Company’s investments held in Trust Account consists entirely of U.S. government securities with an original maturity of 180 days or less.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.
Investments Held in Trust Account
The Company’s portfolio of investments held in Trust Account are comprised solely of U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 180 days or less, classified as trading securities. Trading securities are presented on the balance sheets at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in gain on marketable securities (net), dividends and interest, held in Trust Account in the accompanying statements of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.
The Company accounts for warrants for the Company’s ordinary shares as liabilities at fair value on the Balance Sheets because the warrants do not meet the criteria for classification within equity. Offering costs were allocated to the Ordinary Shares and Public Warrants, and the amounts allocated to the Public Warrants were expensed immediately. The warrants are subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date and any change in fair value is recognized in the Statements of Operations. The Company will continue to adjust the liability for changes in fair value until the earlier of the exercise or expiration of the Warrants. At that time, the portion of the warrant liability related to the Warrants will be reclassified to additional paid-in capital.
Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for sale of an asset or paid for transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value.
The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:
ASC 825, Financial Instruments, requires all entities to disclose the fair value of financial instruments, both assets and liabilities for which it is practicable to estimate fair value. As of December 31, 2020, and 2019, the recorded values of cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate the fair values due to the short-term nature of the instruments. The Company’s investments held in Trust Account are comprised of investments in U.S. government securities with an original maturity of 180 days or less. The fair value for trading securities is determined using quoted market prices in active markets.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.
Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.
Offering costs consist of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred through the balance sheet date that are directly related to the Initial Public Offering and that were charged to shareholders equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs were allocated to the ordinary shares and the public warrants based on the relative fair value of the Warrants compared to the ordinary shares. The amounts allocated to the shares were recognized as a reduction to the carrying value of the shares, and the amounts allocated to the public warrants were immediately recognized as an expense.
Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption
Ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at redemption value. Conditionally redeemable ordinary shares (including ordinary shares that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, ordinary shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. The Company’s ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at December 31, 2020, 28,750,000 ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s balance sheets. At December 31, 2019, 28,750,000 ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s balance sheet.
The ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are subject to the subsequent measurement guidance in ASC Topic 480. Under such guidance the Company must subsequently measure the shares to their redemption amount because, as a result of the allocation of net proceeds to the Public Warrants, the initial carrying amount of the Ordinary Shares is less than $10.00 per share. In accordance with the guidance, the Company has elected to measure the Ordinary shares subject to possible redemption to their redemption amount (i.e., $10.00 per share) immediately as if the end of the first reporting period after the IPO, June 30 2019, were the redemption date.
Net (Loss) Income Per Ordinary Share
The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, Earnings Per Share. The Statements of Operations include a presentation of income (loss) per public share and income (loss) per founder share following the two-class method of income per share. In order to determine the Net income (loss) attributable to both the public and founder shares, the Company first considered the total income (loss) allocable to both sets of shares. This is calculated using the total net income (loss) less any dividends paid. For purposes of calculating net income (loss) per share, any Remeasurement of the ordinary shares subject to possible redemption and was considered to be dividends paid to the public shareholders. Subsequent to calculating the total income (loss) allocable to both sets of shares, the company split the amount to be allocated using a ratio of 80% for the public shares and 20% for the founder shares, reflective of the respective participation rights.
For the year ended December 31, 2020, basic and diluted net loss per share of Public Shares, were calculated by dividing 80% of the total loss allocable to all shares of approximately $18.9 million, by the weighted average number of 28,750,000 Public Shares outstanding for the period. For the year ended December 31, 2020, basic and diluted net loss per share of Founder Shares were calculated by dividing 20% of the total loss allocable to all shares of approximately $18.9 million, by the weighted average number of 7,187,500 Founder Shares outstanding for the period.
For the year ended December 31, 2019, basic and diluted net loss per share of Public Shares, were calculated by dividing 80% of the total loss allocable to all shares of approximately $27.2 million, plus the remeasurement of the ordinary shares subject to possible redemption of approximately $31.3 million, by the weighted average number of 28,750,000 Public Shares outstanding for the period. For the year ended December 31, 2019, basic and diluted net loss per share of Founder Shares were calculated by dividing 20% of the total loss allocable to all shares of approximately $27.2 million, by the weighted average number of 7,187,500 Founder Shares outstanding for the period.
At December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, we did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into ordinary shares and then share in our earnings. As a result, diluted loss per share is the same as basic loss per share for the periods presented.
FASB ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2020, and 2019. The Company’s management determined that the Cayman Islands is the Company’s only major tax jurisdiction. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties at December 31, 2020, and 2019. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.
There is currently no taxation imposed on income by the Government of the Cayman Islands. In accordance with Cayman income tax regulations, income taxes are not levied on the Company. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s financial statements.
Risks and Uncertainties
Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and has concluded that, while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations, close of the Initial Public Offering and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.
