|Subsequent Events [Abstract]|
In accordance with ASC Topic 855, Subsequent Events, which establishes general standards of accounting for and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued, the Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after December 31, 2020, the balance sheet date, up to the date that the audited financial statements were available to be issued. As a result, the following transactions were identified as subsequent events as of May 17, 2021.
On October 12, 2020, the Company, FoA, New Pubco, Replay Merger Sub, Blocker Merger Sub, Blocker, Blocker GP, the Sellers and BTO Urban and Family Holdings, solely in their joint capacity as the Seller Representative, entered into the Transaction Agreement, pursuant to which the Company agreed to combine with FoA in the Proposed Business Combination that will result in New Pubco becoming a publicly-traded company on the NYSE and controlling FoA in an “UP-C” structure.
The Proposed Business Combination encompasses a series of transactions to effect an “UP-C” structure, pursuant to which, among other things: (i) the Company will change its jurisdiction of incorporation from the Cayman Islands to the State of Delaware by deregistering as an exempted company in the Cayman Islands and continuing and domesticating as Finance of America Companies, Inc. a limited liability company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware (the “Domestication”).
On April 1, the Company consummated the Proposed Business Combination with New Pubco resulting in the Domestication, whereby the Company became a wholly owned consolidated subsidiary of New Pubco. The Business Combination will be accounted for using the acquisition method with New Pubco as the accounting acquirer. Under the acquisition method of accounting, the Company’s assets and liabilities will be recorded at carrying value and the assets and liabilities associated with FoA will be recorded at estimated fair value as of the acquisition date. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of FoA’s net assets acquired, if applicable, was recognized as goodwill. For accounting purposes, the acquirer is the entity that has obtained control of another entity and, thus, consummated a business combination. The determination of whether control has been obtained begins with the evaluation of whether control should be evaluated based on the variable interest or voting interest model pursuant to ASC Topic 810, Consolidation (“ASC 810”). If the acquiree is a variable interest entity, the primary beneficiary would be the accounting acquirer. FoA meets the definition of a variable interest entity and the New Pubco was determined to be the primary beneficiary.
Additional disclosures required by ASC 805, Business Combinations, with respect to the acquisition have been omitted because the information needed for the disclosures is not currently available due to the close proximity of closing of this transaction with the date these financial statements are being issued.
The entire disclosure for significant events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date through the date the financial statements were issued or the date the financial statements were available to be issued. Examples include: the sale of a capital stock issue, purchase of a business, settlement of litigation, catastrophic loss, significant foreign exchange rate changes, loans to insiders or affiliates, and transactions not in the ordinary course of business.
