Note 2—Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal accruals) considered for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021.
The accompanying unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included on Form 10-K/A filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 17, 2021.
Emerging Growth Company
The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the “JOBS Act, and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.
Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such an election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period, which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard.
This may make comparison of the Company’s unaudited financial statements with another public company that is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company that has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of unaudited financial statements in conformity with 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 date of the unaudited financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues 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 unaudited 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.
Concentrations of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to credit risk consist principally of cash and investments held in the 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 the 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. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.
Investments Held in Trust Account
The Company’s portfolio of investments held in the 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, dividends and interest held in the Trust Account in the accompanying Statements of Operations. The fair value for trading securities is determined using quoted market prices in active markets.
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
ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, defines fair value and requires disclosures about 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:
As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the recorded values of cash, prepaid expenses, accrued expenses and accounts payable approximate the fair values due to the short-term nature of the instruments. The Company’s investments held in the 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.
Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering
Offering costs incurred in connection with preparation of the Initial Public Offering, of approximately $15.1 million, consisted principally of underwriter discounts of $14.4 million (including $9.2 million of which payment is deferred) and approximately $638,000 of professional, printing, filing, regulatory and other costs. These expenses, together with the underwriting discounts and commissions, were allocated to the ordinary shares and the public warrants. Amounts allocated to the ordinary shares were recognized as a reduction to the ordinary shares carrying value and the amounts allocated to the public warrants were expensed immediately.
Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company accounts for its ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC 480. 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 March 31, 2021 and 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.
The ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are subject to the subsequent measurement guidance in ASC 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, was the redemption date.
Net Income (Loss) 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 Gain on marketable securities, dividends and interest held in Trust Account were 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 three months ended March 31, 2021, basic and diluted net income per share of Public Shares, were calculated by dividing 80% of the total income allocable to all shares of approximately $800,000, plus the Gain on marketable securities, dividends and interest held in Trust Account of approximately $7,000, by the weighted average number of 28,750,000 Public Shares outstanding for the period. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, basic and diluted net loss per share of Founder Shares were calculated by dividing 20% of the total income allocable to all shares of approximately $800,000, by the weighted average number of 7,187,500 Founder Shares outstanding for the period.
For the three months ended March 31, 2020, basic and diluted net income per share of Public Shares, were calculated by dividing 80% of the total income allocable to all shares of approximately $5.6 million, plus the Gain on marketable securities, dividends and interest held in Trust Account of approximately $1.1 million, by the weighted average number of 28,750,000 Public Shares outstanding for the period. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, basic and diluted net income per share of Founder Shares were calculated by dividing 20% of the total income allocable to all shares of approximately $5.6 million, by the weighted average number of 7,187,500 Founder Shares outstanding for the period.
At March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, the Company 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, Income Taxes, 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 March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. 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 March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. 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 on the industry 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 and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these unaudited financial statements. The unaudited financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06”), which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. The ASU also removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity-linked contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception, and it simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 on January 1, 2021. Adoption of the ASU did not impact the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
