Redwire Corporation develops and manufactures mission critical space solutions and high reliability components for the next generation space economy. With decades of flight heritage combined with the agile and innovative culture of a commercial space platform, Redwire Corporation is uniquely positioned to assist our customers in solving the complex challenges of future space missions.

AE Industrial Partners Fund II, LP (“AEI”), a private equity firm specializing in aerospace, defense, and government services, formed a series of acquisition vehicles on February 10, 2020, which included Cosmos Parent, LLC, Cosmos Intermediate, LLC, Cosmos Finance, LLC and Cosmos Acquisition, LLC, with Cosmos Parent, LLC being the top holding company. Cosmos Parent, LLC owned 100% of the equity in Cosmos Intermediate, LLC; Cosmos Intermediate, LLC owned 100% of the equity in Cosmos Finance, LLC; Cosmos Finance, LLC owned 100% of the equity in Cosmos Acquisition, LLC. Upon the formation of these acquisition vehicles, Cosmos Intermediate, LLC (“Successor”) effected a number of acquisitions through its wholly owned subsidiary, Cosmos Acquisition, LLC. Following the acquisitions, the Successor became a wholly owned subsidiary of AE Red Holdings, LLC formerly known as Redwire, LLC (“Holdings”).

Strategic acquisitions that augment our technology and product offerings are a key part of our growth strategy. The Company has completed eight acquisitions since March 2020, which collectively have provided a wide variety of complementary technologies and solutions to serve the Company’s target markets and customers. These acquisitions included: Adcole Space, LLC (“Adcole”), Deep Space Systems, Inc. (“DSS”), In Space Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “MIS” or “Predecessor”), Roccor, LLC (“Roccor”), and LoadPath, LLC (“LoadPath”), Oakman Aerospace, Inc. (“Oakman”), Deployable Space Systems, Inc. (“DPSS”) and Techshot, Inc. (“Techshot”) as of December 31, 2021.

On September 2, 2021, the previously announced merger (the “Merger”) with Genesis Park Acquisition Corp. (“GPAC”) was consummated pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated March 25, 2021 by and among GPAC, Shepard Merger Sub Corporation, a Delaware corporation and direct, wholly owned subsidiary of GPAC, Cosmos Intermediate, LLC and Holdings. Upon the closing of the Merger, GPAC was renamed to Redwire Corporation (“Redwire” or the “Company”), the SEC registrant. As a result of the Merger, the Company received aggregate gross proceeds of $110.6 million from the trust account of GPAC and PIPE proceeds. Proceeds from the Merger were partially used to repay the $41.6 million outstanding under the Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”) Loan, including interest of $0.1 million, and Merger transaction costs and other costs paid through the funds flow of $38.7 million, consisting of marketing, legal and other professional fees.

The Merger was accounted for as a reverse recapitalization in which GPAC was treated as the acquired company. A reverse recapitalization does not result in a new basis of accounting, and the consolidated financial statements of the combined entity represent the continuation of the consolidated financial statements of Cosmos Intermediate, LLC in many respects. Immediately prior to the closing of the Merger, but following the consummation of the Company’s domestication to a Delaware corporation, the authorized capital stock of the Company consisted of 600,000,000 shares of capital stock, including (i) 500,000,000 shares of Redwire common stock with a par value $0.0001 per share and (ii) 100,000,000 shares of Redwire preferred stock. At the effective time of the Merger, the 100 company units of Cosmos Intermediate, LLC were cancelled and automatically deemed for all purposes to represent Holdings’ right to receive, in the aggregate, $75.0 million of cash, 37,200,000 shares of common stock and 2,000,000 warrants to purchase one share of common stock per warrant (with such amount of warrants corresponding to the forfeiture of certain private placement warrants acquired by Genesis Park Holdings (the “Sponsor”) and Jefferies LLC (“Jefferies”) in connection with GPAC’s initial public offering). The exchanged 37,200,000 shares of common stock consideration to Holdings, the GPAC common stock shares outstanding at the time of closing of 13,961,273, and the PIPE financing shares issued at closing of 8,500,000 made up the total of the 59,661,273 shares of common stock outstanding as of September 2, 2021. The 100 units of the Company prior to the Merger were retroactively restated to reflect the exchange ratio established in the Merger (computed as 37,200,000 shares of common stock to 100 Company units).

Impact of Macroeconomic Environment and COVID-19
Adverse macroeconomic conditions including, among others, heightened inflation, rising interest rates, volatility in capital markets, supply chain disruptions, labor shortages, regulatory challenges, and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have affected the Company’s results of operations. Decreases in the availability, cost and delivery of supplies have caused shortages and delays for the procurement of raw materials, components and other supplies required to fulfill the Company’s performance obligations. The long-term impacts of macroeconomic conditions and COVID-19 on government budgets and other funding priorities are difficult to predict and could continue to adversely affect the Company’s operations and financial results. There can be no assurances that actions or
responsive measures taken on the part of the Company or governmental authorities will be successful in mitigating increased risks associated with macroeconomic conditions and COVID-19.

Committed Equity Facility
On April 14, 2022, the Company entered into a Common Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) and a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with B. Riley Principal Capital, LLC (“B. Riley”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company has the right to sell to B. Riley up to $80.0 million of newly issued shares of the Company’s common stock, subject to certain conditions and limitations. The Purchase Agreement governs a committed equity facility that will be used to further support its growth strategy through initiatives such as accretive acquisitions and internal investments, to bolster working capital, and/or for general corporate purposes.

On June 1, 2022 (the “Effective Date”), William Read stepped down from the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and entered into a separation and release agreement (“Separation and Release Agreement”) which ended his employment with the Company as of the Effective Date. On the same date, Jonathan E. Baliff, a member of the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), assumed the role of CFO of the Company.
