NOTE 8. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY
Preference Shares —
The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 preference shares with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. As of December 31, 2020, there were no preference shares issued or outstanding.
Class A Ordinary Shares —
The Company is authorized to issue 950,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. As of December 31, 2020, there were 36,394,500 Class A ordinary shares issued or outstanding, including 34,718,347 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption.
Class B Ordinary Shares —
The Company is authorized to issue 95,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. On September 3, 2020, the Company issued 19,406,250 Class B ordinary shares to the Sponsor. On September 28, 2020, the Sponsor effected a surrender of 6,468,750 Class B ordinary shares to the Company for no consideration. On October 15, 2020, the Sponsor effected a surrender of 3,593,750 Class B ordinary shares to the Company for no consideration, resulting in a decrease in the total number of Class B ordinary shares outstanding to 9,343,750 shares. All shares and associated per share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share surrenders. Of the 9,343,750 shares outstanding, up to 1,218,750 shares were subject to forfeiture to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option was not exercised in full or in part, so that the holders of Founder Shares prior to the Initial Public Offering will collectively own approximately 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares. The underwriters partially exercised their over- allotment option on December 1, 2020; thus, 245,125 shares of Class B ordinary shares were forfeited in conjunction with the underwriters’ partial exercise of the over-allotment. (See Note 5).
Ordinary shareholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by shareholders. Except as described below, holders of Class A ordinary shares and holders of Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of our shareholders except as required by law.
The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares, provided, however, that such Class A ordinary shares delivered upon conversion will not have any redemption rights or be entitled to liquidating distributions if the Company does not consummate an initial Business Combination, at the time of the initial Business Combination or earlier at the option of the holders thereof at a ratio such that the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the sum of (i) the total number of ordinary shares issued and outstanding upon completion of the Initial Public Offering, plus (ii) the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued, by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, excluding any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, deemed issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination and any private placement warrants issued to the Sponsor, its affiliates or any member of the management team upon conversion of Working Capital Loans. In no event will the Class B ordinary shares convert into Class A ordinary shares at a rate of less than one-to-one.
