NOTE 6 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
In October 2016, the Sponsor purchased 8,625,000 shares of Class F common stock (the “Founder Shares”) for $25,000, or approximately $0.001 per share (see Note 8). The Founder Shares are identical to the Class A common stock included in the Units being sold in the Public Offering except that the Founder Shares are convertible under the circumstances described below and subject to certain transfer restrictions, as described in more detail below. The Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to 1,125,000 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters (see Notes 5 and 8) so that the initial stockholder would own 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Public Offering. As discussed further in Notes 5 and 8, on November 27, 2017, the underwriters’ notified the Company that they would not exercise the overallotment option and, as such, the 1,125,000 shares that were subject to forfeiture were forfeited as of the closing of the Public Offering on November 21, 2017. The Founder Shares will automatically convert into shares of Class A common stock at the time of the business combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment as described in the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation.
The Company’s initial stockholder has agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of its Founder Shares until the earlier of (A) one year after the completion of the Company’s initial business combination, or earlier if, subsequent to the Company’s initial business combination, the last sale price of the Company’s 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 the Company’s initial business combination or (B) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after the initial business combination that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property (the “Lock Up Period”).

Private Placement Warrants
Upon the closing of the Public Offering on November 21, 2017, the Sponsor paid the Company $8,750,000 for the private placement purchase from the Company of 17,500,000 warrants at $0.50 per warrant (the “Private Placement Warrants”). Each Private Placement Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one-half of one share of Class A common stock at $5.75 ($11.50 per whole share). A portion of the purchase price of the Private Placement Warrants has been added to the proceeds from the Public Offering held in the Trust Account pending completion of the Company’s initial business combination. The Private Placement Warrants (including the common stock issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants) are not transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of the initial business combination and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the Sponsor or its permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the warrants included in the Units being sold in the Public Offering. Otherwise, the Private Placement Warrants have terms and provisions that are identical to those of the Warrants sold as part of the Units in the Public Offering and have no net cash settlement provisions.
If the Company does not complete a business combination within the Extended Date, then the proceeds will be part of the liquidating distribution to the public stockholders and the Warrants issued to the Sponsor will expire worthless.
See also Note 3.
The Company’s initial stockholder and holders of the Private Placement Warrants are entitled to registration rights (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion to shares of Class A common stock) pursuant to a registration rights agreement dated November 16, 2017. The Company’s initial stockholder and holders of the Private Placement Warrants are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form registration demands, that the Company register such securities for sale under the Securities Act. In addition, these holders have “piggy-back” registration rights to include their securities in other registration statements filed by the Company. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Administrative Service Agreement and Services Agreement
The Company pays $10,000 a month, $30,000 for each of the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 and $90,000 for each of the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, for office space, accounting services, utilities and secretarial support provided by the Sponsor subsequent to the date the Company’s securities were first listed on the NYSE. Such monthly fee will terminate upon the earlier of the consummation by the Company of an initial business combination or the liquidation of the Company.
