Note 1 - Description of Organization and Business Operations
Organization and General
Genesis Park Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company on July 29, 2020. The Company was incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). The Company is an “emerging growth company”, as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act”), as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). The Company’s efforts to identify a prospective target business will not be limited to a particular industry or geographic location.
The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.
As of March 31, 2021, the Company had not yet commenced any operations. All activity for the period from July 29, 2020 (inception) through March 31, 2021 relates to the Company’s formation, the Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) described below and its efforts toward locating and completing a suitable Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate
non-operatingincome in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents from the proceeds derived from the IPO and will recognize changes in the fair value of the warrant liability as other income (expense).
The registration statement for the Company’s IPO was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 23, 2020 (the “Effective Date”). On November 27, 2020, the Company consummated the IPO of 16,377,622 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 1,377,622 Units as a result of the underwriter’s partial exercise of its over-allotment option. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share, $0.0001 par value (“Ordinary Share”), and
one-halfof one redeemable warrant (“Warrant”) entitling its holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $163,776,220. On January 7, 2021, 218,094 Class B ordinary shares were forfeited to the Company for no consideration due to the over-allotment option expiring unused. (See Note 6).
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated the private placement (“Sponsor Private Placement”) with Genesis Park Holdings (“Sponsor”) for an aggregate of 7,292,541 warrants (“Sponsor Private Warrants”), each at a price of $1.00 per Sponsor Private Warrant, generating total proceeds of $7,292,541 and with Jefferies LLC (“Jefferies”), underwriter for the IPO, of an aggregate of 439,627 warrants (the “Jefferies Private Warrants” and together with Sponsor Private Warrants, “Private Warrants”), each at a price of $1.00 per Jefferies Private Warrant, generating total proceeds of $439,627, which is described in Note 5.
Following the closing of the IPO on November 27, 2020, an amount of $166,232,863 ($10.15 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”) which was invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 185 days or less. Except with respect to interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account that may be released to the Company to pay its tax obligations, the proceeds from the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will not be released from the Trust Account until the earliest to occur of: (a) the completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination, (b) the redemption of any public shares properly submitted in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (i) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide for the redemption of its public shares in connection with an initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of its public shares if the Company does not complete its initial Business Combination by May 27, 2022 or (ii) with respect to any other material provisions
relating to shareholders’ rights or
pre-initialBusiness Combination activity, and (c) the redemption of the Company’s public shares if the Company is unable to complete its initial Business Combination by May 27, 2022 (the “Combination Period”), the eighteen month anniversary of the closing of the IPO.
Initial Business Combination
The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the IPO and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination.
The Company must complete one or more initial Business Combinations having an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the value of the assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on the interest earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial Business Combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully.
The Company will provide its public shareholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their public shares upon the completion of the initial business combination either (i) in connection with a shareholder meeting called to approve the initial business combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a proposed initial business combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The shareholders will be entitled to redeem their shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then on deposit in the Trust Account (initially approximately $10.15 per share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations).
The ordinary shares subject to redemption will be recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the IPO, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” In such case, the Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon such consummation of a Business Combination and, if the Company seeks shareholder approval, a majority of the issued and outstanding shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination.
If a shareholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other legal reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (the “Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the SEC and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination.
If, however, shareholder approval of the transactions is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. Additionally, each public shareholder may elect to redeem their public shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction.
Notwithstanding the foregoing redemption rights, if the Company seeks shareholder approval of its initial business combination and the Company does not conduct redemptions in connection with its initial business combination pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association will provide that a public shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Exchange Act), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% of the shares sold in this offering, without the Company’s prior consent.
The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors (the “initial shareholders”) have agreed not to propose any amendment to Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (a) that would modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide for the redemption of its public shares in connection with an initial business combination or to redeem 100% of our public shares if the Company does not complete its initial business combination by May 27, 2022 (the “Combination Period”) or (b) with respect to any other material provisions relating to shareholders’ rights or
pre-initialbusiness combination activity, unless the Company provides its public shareholders with the opportunity to redeem their Class A ordinary shares in conjunction with any such amendment.
If the Company is unable to complete its initial business combination within the Combination Period, the Company will: (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the public shares, at a
per-shareprice, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining shareholders and the Company’s board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii) to the Company’s obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law.
The initial shareholders agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any founder shares held by them if the Company fails to complete its initial business combination within the Combination Period. However, if the initial shareholders acquire public shares in or after the IPO, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such public shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period.
On January 13, 2021, the Company announced that the holders of the Units may elect to separately trade the Class A Ordinary Shares and Warrants comprising the Units commencing on January 14, 2021. Those Units not separated will continue to trade on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “GNPK.U,” and the Class A Ordinary Shares and Warrants that are separated will trade on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbols “GNPK” and “GNPK WS,” respectively. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the units and only whole warrants will trade. Holders of the Units will need to have their brokers contact Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, in order to separate the Units into Class A Ordinary Shares and Warrants. (See Note 6)
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of March 31, 2021, the Company had cash outside the Trust Account of $1,186,528 available for working capital needs. All remaining cash held in the Trust Account is generally unavailable for the Company’s use, prior to an initial Business Combination, and is restricted for use either in a Business Combination, to pay tax obligations or to redeem ordinary shares. As of March 31, 2021, none of the amount in the Trust Account was available to be withdrawn as described above.
Through March 31, 2021, the Company’s liquidity needs were satisfied through a capital contribution from the Sponsor of $25,000, to cover certain offering costs, in exchange for the founder shares (see Note 6), the loan under an unsecured promissory note from the Sponsor of $30,000 (see Note 6), and the net proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. The promissory note from the Sponsor was paid in full on November 27, 2020.
The Company anticipates that the $1,186,528 outside of the Trust Account as of March 31, 2021, will be sufficient to allow the Company to operate for at least the next 12 months from the issuance of these financial statements, assuming that a Business Combination is not consummated during that time. Until consummation of its Business Combination, the Company will be using the funds not held in the Trust Account, and any additional Working Capital Loans (as defined in Note 6) from the shareholders, the Company’s officers and directors, or their respective affiliates (which is described in Note 6), for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to acquire and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.
The Company does not believe it will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating its business. However, if the Company’s estimates of the costs of undertaking
in-depthdue diligence and negotiating the Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, the Company may have insufficient funds available to operate its business prior to the Business Combination. Moreover, the Company will need to raise additional capital through loans from its Sponsor, officers, directors, or third parties. None of the Sponsor, officers or directors are under any obligation to advance funds to, or to invest in, the Company. If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of its business plan, and reducing overhead expenses. The Company cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to it on commercially acceptable terms, if at all.
Proposed Business Combination
On March 25, 2021, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Shepard Merger Sub Corporation, a Delaware corporation and direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Genesis Park (“Merger Sub”), Cosmos Intermediate, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Holdings (as defined herein) (“Redwire”), and Redwire, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Holdings”).
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the parties thereto will enter into a Business Combination by which, (i) the Company shall domesticate as a Delaware corporation in accordance with Section 388 of the Delaware General Corporation Law and the Companies Act of the Cayman Islands (the “Domestication”), (ii) Merger Sub will merge with and into Redwire, with Redwire being the surviving entity in the merger (the “First Merger”), and (iii) immediately following the First Merger, Redwire will merge with and into the Company, with the Company being the surviving entity in the merger (the “Second Merger” and, together with the First Merger, being collectively referred to as the “Mergers” and, together with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “Transactions”). The proposed Business Combination is expected to be consummated after the required approval by the shareholders of the Company and the satisfaction of certain closing conditions described in the Company’s Current Report on Form
8-K,as filed with the SEC on March 25, 2021.
The aggregate consideration to be paid to Holdings (the “Closing Merger Consideration”) will be paid in a combination of stock and cash consideration. The cash consideration will be an amount equal to $75,000,000 (such amount, the “Closing Cash Consideration”). The remainder of the Closing Merger Consideration will be paid in (i) 37,200,000 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Class A Common Stock,” and such shares, the “Closing Share Consideration”) and (ii) 2,000,000 warrants to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock per warrant (the “Closing Warrant Consideration”), with such amount of warrants corresponding to the forfeiture of certain warrants acquired by the Sponsor and Jefferies in connection with the IPO.
In connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement, the Company entered into subscription agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with certain investors (the “PIPE Investors”), pursuant to which the Company has agreed to issue and sell to the PIPE Investors, and the PIPE Investors have agreed to subscribe for and purchase, an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock at a purchase price of $10.00 per share for aggregate gross proceeds of $100,000,000 (the “PIPE Financing”). The closing of the PIPE Financing is conditioned on all conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement having been satisfied or waived and other customary closing conditions, and the Transactions will be consummated immediately following the closing of the PIPE Financing. The Subscription Agreements will terminate upon the earlier to occur of (i) the termination of the Merger Agreement and (ii) the mutual written agreement of the parties thereto. The counterparties to certain of the Subscription Agreements are directors, officers or affiliates of the Company and such Subscription Agreements have been approved by the Company’s audit committee and board of directors in accordance with the company’s related persons transaction policy.
