The Company has approximately 2.4 million Sponsor Shares that are subject to specific lock-up provisions and potential forfeitures depending upon the post-Merger performance of the Company’s Class A common stock, and therefore are required to be recorded as derivative liabilities at their fair value and adjusted to fair value at each reporting period. As a result, as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company's derivative liabilities in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets included Sponsor Shares of $1.8 million and $4.7 million, respectively. The Company recorded a $2.9 million gain on derivatives in the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 related to the fair value adjustments of these Sponsor Shares. The Sponsor Shares have the following provisions:
Contractual Life
Seven years from the closing date of the Merger
Release Provision
Exactly half of the Sponsor Shares have a release provision ("Release") at such time that the volume weighted average price ("VWAP") is equal to, or greater than, $15.00 per share for ten of any twenty consecutive trading days. The remaining Sponsor Shares Release at such time that the VWAP is equal to, or greater than, $17.50 per share for ten of any twenty consecutive trading days. There is an additional provision for acceleration of the Release upon a defined change in control.
Forfeiture Provision
If, within the seven year period, the Sponsor Shares have not met the Release provisions, the Sponsor Shares will automatically forfeit and be cancelled.
