(EDGAR Online via COMTEX) -- Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

The following discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and the notes related thereto which are included in "Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data" of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including those set forth under "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements," "Item 1A. Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.


We are a blank check company incorporated on December 10, 2018 as a Cayman Islands exempted company and incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar Business Combination with one or more businesses. We intend to complete our Business Combination using cash from the proceeds from our Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, our shares, debt or a combination of cash, equity and debt.

We expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete a Business Combination will be successful.

Recent Developments

On March 19, 2021 we entered into a Business Combination Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Business Combination Agreement"), by and among Rockley Photonics Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of England and Wales with company number 08683015 (the "Rockley"), Rockley Photonics Holdings Limited, an exempted company incorporated in the Cayman Islands with limited liability ("HoldCo"), and Rockley Mergersub Limited, an exempted company incorporated in the Cayman Islands with limited liability and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of HoldCo ("Merger Sub"). The Business Combination Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby (the "Rockley Business Combination") were approved by our board of directors and the boards of directors of each of HoldCo, Merger Sub and Rockley.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from inception to December 31, 2020 were organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering, described below, and, after the Initial Public Offering, identifying a target company for a Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our Business Combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses in connection with completing a Business Combination.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, we had net loss of $1,091,958, which consisted of operating expenses of $1,736,059, offset by interest earned on investments held in the Trust Account of $644,101.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, we had net income of $958,107, which consisted of interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $1,397,911, offset by operating expenses of $439,804.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

On July 16, 2019, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 15,000,000 Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $150,000,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of an aggregate of 5,000,000 Private Placement Warrants to our Sponsor at a price of $1.00 per warrant, generating gross proceeds of $5,000,000.

Table of Contents

Following the Initial Public Offering, the exercise of the over-allotment option and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, a total of $172,500,000 was placed in the Trust Account. We incurred $10,224,407 in transaction costs, including $3,450,000 of underwriting fees, $6,037,500 of deferred underwriting fees and $736,907 of other costs in connection with the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, net cash used in operating activities was $515,847. Net income of $958,107 was impacted by interest earned on marketable securities of $1,397,911. Changes in operating assets and liabilities used $76,043 of cash from operating activities.

At December 31, 2020, we had investments held in the Trust Account of $174,542,012. We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less taxes payable (if applicable) and deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our Business Combination. To the extent that our shares or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the post-Business Combination entity, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

At December 31, 2020, we had cash of $124,878 held outside of the Trust Account. We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, properties or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination.

In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants identical to the Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating and consummating a Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our Business Combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete our Business Combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon consummation of our Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our Business Combination. If we are unable to complete our Business Combination because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account. In addition, following our Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

In the event that we are unable to close a Business Combination within the 18 months following the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the escrow agent under an escrow created by our Sponsor or an affiliate will be authorized and instructed to transfer $1.00 per whole public warrant, to holders of public warrants other than our Sponsor and its affiliates, at the same time as we redeem our public shares, and all public warrants will expire worthless.

Following a repurchase or payment to holders of public warrants, any amounts remaining in the escrow account will be returned to our Sponsor or its affiliate.

Going Concern

In connection with the Company's assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB's Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-15, "Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern," management has determined that if the Company is unable to raise additional funds to alleviate liquidity needs as well as complete a Business Combination during the Combination Period, then the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating. The liquidity condition and date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after the Combination Period.

Off-Balance Sheet Financing Arrangements

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements as of December 31, 2020. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements. We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or purchased any non-financial assets.

Contractual Obligations

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than as described below.

We entered into an agreement to pay our Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, secretarial and administrative support to the Company. We began incurring these fees on July 16, 2019 and will continue to incur these fees on a monthly basis until the earlier of the completion of the Business Combination and the Company's liquidation.

We have an agreement to pay the underwriters a deferred fee of $6,037,500, which will become payable to them from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Additionally, SC Health Group Limited, an affiliate of our Sponsor, entered into a forward purchase agreement with us which provides for the purchase by SC Health Group Limited of an aggregate of 5,000,000 Class A ordinary shares, plus an aggregate of 1,250,000 redeemable warrants, each to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $50,000,000, or $10.00 per Class A ordinary share and accompanying fraction of a warrant in a private placement to close concurrently with the closing of a Business Combination. The obligations under the forward purchase agreement do not depend on whether any Class A ordinary shares are redeemed by our public shareholders.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting policies:

Table of Contents

We account for our Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic

Net Income (Loss) per Ordinary Share

We apply the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. Net income per ordinary share, basic and diluted for Class A redeemable ordinary shares is calculated by dividing the interest income earned on the Trust Account by the weighted average number of Class A redeemable ordinary shares outstanding for the period. Net loss per common share, basic and diluted for Class B non-redeemable ordinary shares is calculated by dividing the net income (loss), less income attributable to Class A redeemable ordinary shares, by the weighted average number of Class B non-redeemable ordinary shares outstanding for the periods presented.

Recent Accounting Standards

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our financial statements.
