FIRST LIGHT ACQUISITION GROUP, INC.
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1. ORGANIZATION AND PLANS OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS

First Light Acquisition Group, Inc. (the “Company”) is a blank check company formed in Delaware on March 24, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”).
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity through March 31, 2022 relates to the Company’s formation, the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering” or “IPO”), which is described below, and identifying a target for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates
non-operating
income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end. The Company did not have any activity for the period from March 24, 2021 (inception) through March 31, 2021.
The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on September 9, 2021 (the “Effective Date”). On September 14, 2021, the Company consummated the IPO of
 23,000,000
Units at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $
230,000,000
, which
 is discussed in Note 3. Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated the sale of 3,397,155 Private Placement Warrants (the “Private Warrants”) at a price of
 $1.50
per Private Warrant in a private placement to certain funds and accounts managed by First Light Acquisition Group, LLC (the “Sponsor”) and Metric Finance Holdings I, LLC (“Metric”) generating proceeds of
 $5,095,733
 from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants. 
Following the closing of the IPO on September 14, 2021,
 $
230,000,000
($
10.00
per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the IPO and the sale of the Private Warrants was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”), located in the United States which will be invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of
 
180
days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by the Company meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the redemption of any Public Shares properly submitted in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, and (iii) the redemption of the Company’s Public Shares if the Company is unable to complete the initial Business Combination within 24 months from September 14, 2021 (the “Combination Period”), the closing of the Initial Public Offering.

Risks and Uncertainties
Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia-Ukraine war on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that such could have negative effects on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations, and/or search for a target company, the specific impacts are not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.
Going Concern
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had $597,522 and $1,062,653 operating cash, respectively, and working capital of $645,674 and $1,072,576, respectively.
The Company’s liquidity needs up to March 31, 2022 had been satisfied through a payment from the Sponsor and Metric of $25,000 for Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B common stock” and shares thereof, “Founder Shares”) (see Note 5), the Initial Public Offering and the issuance of the Private Placement Warrants. Additionally, the Company drew on an unsecured promissory note to pay certain offering costs.
The Company has incurred and expects to continue to incur significant costs in pursuit of its financing and acquisition plans. The Company lacks the financial resources it needs to sustain operations for a reasonable period of time, which is considered to be one year from the issuance date of the financial statements. Although no formal agreement exists, the Sponsor is committed to extend Working Capital Loans as needed (defined in Note 5 below). The Company cannot assure that its plans to consummate an initial Business Combination will be successful. In addition, management is currently evaluating the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic and its effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations and/or search for a target company.
These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern one year from the date these financial statements are issued. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form
10-Q
and Article 8 of Regulation
S-X
of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented.
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form
10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2021 as filed with the SEC on March 30, 2022, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto. The financial information as of December 31, 2021 is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the Company’s Annual Report on Form
10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2021. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022 or for any future interim periods
Emerging Growth Company
The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the JOBS Act, and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.
Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to
non-emerging
growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with another public company which is either not an emerging growth company or an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of these financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in the reported period. While the significant estimates made by management in the preparation of the financial statements are reasonable, prudent, and evaluated on an ongoing basis, actual results may differ materially from those estimates. The information below outlines several accounting policies applied by the Company in preparing its financial statements that involve complex situations and judgment in the development of significant estimates and assumptions.
Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company had $597,522 and $1,062,653 of operating cash and no cash equivalents as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
Cash Held in Trust Account
Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering on September 14, 2021, an amount of $230,000,000 from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were placed in the Trust Account and may be invested only in U.S. government securities with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule
2a-7
under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations. The Trust Account is intended as a holding place for funds pending the earliest to occur of: (i) the completion of the initial Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of any public shares properly submitted in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (A) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the public shares if the Company does not complete the initial Business Combination within 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering or (B) with respect to any other provision relating to shareholders’ rights or
pre-initial
Business Combination activity; or (iii) absent an initial Business Combination within 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or during any Extension Period, the return of the funds held in the Trust Account to the public shareholders as part of redemption of the public shares. The Company had $230,023,555 and $230,004,784 of cash held in the trust account as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Offering Costs Associated with IPO
The Company complies with the requirements of the ASC
340-10-S99-1
and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) Topic 5A—”Expenses of Offering”. Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the IPO. Offering costs are charged to stockholders’ equity or the statement of operations based on the relative value of the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants to the proceeds received from the Units sold upon the completion of the IPO. Accordingly, on September 14, 2021, offering costs totaling $22,517,063 (consisting of $2,335,058 of underwriting fee, $8,050,000 of deferred underwriting fee (see Note 8), $640,129 of actual offering costs, and $11,491,876 of excess fair value of Founder Shares) were recognized with $989,674 included in accumulated deficit as an allocation for the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants, and $21,527,389 included in additional
paid-in
capital.
Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 23,000,000 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption is presented, at redemption value, as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ deficit section of the Company’s balance sheet.
The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable common stock to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Such changes are reflected in additional
paid-in
capital, or in the absence of additional capital, in accumulated deficit. The Company recorded accretion of $18,771 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and $31,641,174 for the period from March 24, 2021 (inception) through December 31, 2021 to remeasure Class A common stock subject to possible redemption to redemption value of $230,023,555
and $230,004,789 as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. 
Income Taxes
The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes under ASC 740, “Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”). Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.
ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statements recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company has been subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.
 
The provision for income taxes was deemed to be de minimis for the three months ended March 31, 2022. 
Net Income per Share
The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share”. The statements of operations include a presentation of income per Class A redeemable common stock and loss per
non-redeemable
common stock following the
two-class
method of income per common stock. In order to determine the net income attributable to both the Class A redeemable common stock and
non-redeemable
common stock, the Company first considered the total income allocable to both sets of stock. This is calculated using the total net income less any dividends paid. For purposes of calculating net income per share, any remeasurement of the Class A common stock subject to possible redemption was treated as dividends paid to the public stockholders.
The following table reflects the calculation of basic and diluted net income per common share (in dollars, except per share amounts):

Concentration of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of a cash account in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Depository Insurance Coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement” (“ASC 820”), approximates the carrying amounts represented in the accompanying condensed balance sheets, primarily due to their short-term nature.
Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for sale of an asset or paid to transfer of a liability, in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:
 
   
Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical instruments in active markets;
 
   
Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
 
   
Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.
Derivative Financial Instruments
The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging”. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value on the grant date and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement or conversion of the instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.
Warrant Liability
The Company accounts for warrants for the Company’s common stock that are not indexed to its own shares as liabilities at fair value on the balance sheet. The warrants are subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date and any change in fair value is recognized as a component of other income (expense), net in the statement of operations. The Company will continue to adjust the liability for changes in fair value until the earlier of the exercise or expiration of the ordinary share warrants. At that time, the portion of the warrant liability related to the ordinary share warrants was reclassified to additional
paid-in
capital.
Related Parties
Parties, which can be a corporation or individual, are considered to be related if the Company has the ability, directly or indirectly, to control the other party or exercise significant influence over the other party in making financial and operational decisions. Companies are also considered to be related if they are subject to common control or common significant influence.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU
No. 2020-06,
“Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic
470-20)
and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic
815-40):
Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity” (“ASU
2020-06”),
which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. ASU
2020-06
removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception and it also simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. ASU
2020-06
is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact, if any, that ASU
2020-06
would have on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s condensed financial statements.
NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING
On September 9, 2021, pursuant to the Initial Public Offering, the Company sold 23,000,000 Units, which includes the full exercise by the underwriter of its over-allotment option in the amount of 3,000,000 Units, at a price of $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock and
one-half
of one (each whole warrant, a “Public Warrant”). Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of Class A common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 8).
An aggregate of $10.00 per Unit sold in the Initial Public Offering was held in the Trust Account and invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 180 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company.
As of September 14, 2021, $230,000,000 of the IPO proceeds was held in the Trust Account. In addition,
$2,081,180
of cash is not held in the Trust Account and is available for working capital purposes.
Transaction costs of the IPO amounted to $22,517,064 consisting of $2,335,058 of underwriting discount, $8,050,000 of deferred underwriting discount, $640,129 of actual offering costs, and $11,491,877 of excess fair value of founder shares over the purchase price.
NOTE 4. PRIVATE PLACEMENT
The Company entered into an agreement with the Sponsor and Metric pursuant to which the Sponsor and Metric purchased an aggregate of 3,397,155 Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, or $5,095,733, in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the
 
9

closing of the Initial Public Offering. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 6). A portion of the proceeds from the Private Placement Warrants were added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not
complete
a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants held in the Trust Account will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law), and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.
NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Founder shares
On March 24, 2021, the Sponsor and Metric purchased 5,750,000 shares of the Company’s Class B common stock (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000. This amount was paid on behalf of the Company to cover certain expenses. The number of Founder Shares will collectively represent approximately 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering.
The Sponsor and the Company’s directors and executive officers have agreed, subject to certain limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier of (A) one year after the completion of a Business Combination and (B) subsequent to a Business Combination, (x) if the last reported sale price of the Class A common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any
30-trading
day period commencing at least 120 days after a Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, amalgamation, stock exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their shares of Class A common stock for cash, securities or other property.
The Founder Shares will automatically convert into shares of Class A common stock upon consummation of a Business Combination on a
one-for-one
basis, subject to certain adjustments, as described in Note 6.
In connection with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, certain anchor investor acquired from the Sponsor and Metric in the aggregate 1,452,654 Founder Shares at the original purchase price that the Sponsor and Metric paid for the Founder Shares. Each anchor investor has agreed with the Sponsor and Metric that, if it does not purchase in the Initial Public Offering the number of Units in its indication of interest, it will automatically forfeit its interest in all such Founder Shares.
The excess of the fair value of the Founder Shares was determined to be an offering cost in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A. Accordingly, the offering cost was allocated to the separable financial instruments issued in the Initial Public Offering based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received. Offering costs allocated to derivative warrant liabilities was expensed as incurred in the statement of operations. Offering costs allocated to the Public Shares were charged to stockholders’ equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering.
Promissory note-related party
In March 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). The Note is
non-interest
bearing and is payable on the earlier of December 31, 2021 or the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company had borrowed $188,804 under the Note and repaid the outstanding amount in full on September 14, 2021. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company does not have any amounts outstanding under the note.
Related party loans
In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Company’s Sponsor, an affiliate of the Sponsor, or the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (the “Working Capital Loans”). Further, if the Sponsor elects to extend the period of time to consummate an initial Business Combination beyond 12 months, the Sponsor (or its affiliates or designees) may loan to the Company additional funds as described in the prospectus (the “Extension Loans”, together with the Working Capital Loans, the “Company Loans”). Such Company Loans would be evidenced by promissory notes. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Company Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Company Loans. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, no such Company Loans were outstanding.
Administrative support agreement
The Company has the option, commencing on the date that the Company’s securities are first listed on a U.S. national securities exchange through the earlier of the Company’s consummation of a Business Combination and its liquidation, to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial, and administrative support.
NOTE 6. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
Preferred
stock-The
Company is authorized to issue up to 1,000,000 shares of $0.0001 par value preferred stock. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no preferred shares issued or outstanding.
Class A common stock. The Company is authorized to issue up to 300,000,000 shares of Class A, $0.0001 par value common stock. Holders of the Company’s common stock are entitled to one vote for each share. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no shares of Class A common stock issued and outstanding, except for 23,000,000 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption.
Class B common stock. The Company is authorized to issue up to 30,000,000 shares of Class B, $0.0001 par value common stock. Holders of the Company’s common stock are entitled to one vote for each share. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 5,750,000 Class B common stock issued and outstanding.
 
10

The shares of Class B common stock (founder shares) will automatically convert into shares of Class A common stock at the time of a Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment. In the case that additional shares of Class A common stock, or equity-linked securities, are issued or deemed issued in excess of the amounts offered in the Initial Public Offering and related to the closing of a Business Combination, the ratio at which shares of Class B common stock shall convert into shares of Class A common stock will be adjusted (unless the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Class B common stock agree to waive such adjustment with respect to any such issuance or deemed issuance) so that the number of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of all shares of Class B common stock will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-converted basis, 
20
% of the sum of the total number of all shares of common stock outstanding upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering plus all shares of Class A common stock and equity-linked securities issued or deemed issued in connection with a Business Combination (excluding any shares or equity- linked securities issued, or to be issued, to any seller in a Business Combination). 

NOTE 7. WARRANTS
Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole warrants will trade. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (a) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering and (b) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination.
The Company will not be obligated to deliver any shares of Class A common stock pursuant to the exercise of a warrant and will have no obligation to settle such warrant exercise unless a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the shares of Class A common stock underlying the warrants is then effective and a prospectus relating thereto is current, subject to the Company satisfying its obligations with respect to registration, or a valid exemption from registration is available. No warrant will be exercisable, and the Company will not be obligated to issue any shares of Class A common stock upon exercise of a warrant unless the share of Class A common stock issuable upon such warrant exercise has been registered, qualified or deemed to be exempt under the securities laws of the state of residence of the registered holder of the warrants.
The Company
has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 
15
 business days after the closing of a Business Combination, it will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants, and the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the same to become effective within 
60
 business days after the closing of a Business Combination, and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement and a current prospectus relating to those shares of Class A common stock until the warrants expire or are redeemed, as specified in the warrant agreement; provided that if the Class A common stock is at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and, in the event the Company so elects, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, but it will use its commercially reasonably efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available. If a registration statement covering the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the 60th business day after the closing of a Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption, but the Company will use its commercially reasonably efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available. 
Redemption of warrants when the price per Class
A
common stock equals or exceeds $18.00.
Once the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the Public Warrants:
 
 
 
in whole and not in part;

   
at a price of $0.01
 per warrant; 
 
   
upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder; and
 
   
if, and only if, the last reported sale price of the Class A common stock for any 
20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company will send the notice of redemption to the warrant holders (referred to as the “Reference Value”) equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for adjustments to the number of shares issuable upon exercise or the exercise price of a warrant as described under the heading “— Redeemable Warrants — Public Shareholders’ Warrants — Anti-dilution Adjustments”).
If and when the Public Warrants become redeemable by the Company, it may exercise its redemption right even if the Company is unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.
Redemption of warrants when the price per
Class A common stock
equals or exceeds $10.00.
Once the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the Public Warrants:
 
 
 
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at $0.10 per warrant;
 

   
upon a minimum of 30
days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares based on the redemption date and the fair market value of the Class A common stock; 
 
   
if, and only if, the Reference Value (as defined above under “— Redemption of warrants when the price per share of our Class A common stock equals or exceeds $18.00”) equals or exceeds $10.00 per share (as adjusted for adjustments to the number of shares issuable upon exercise or the exercise price of a warrant as described under the heading “— Anti-dilution Adjustments”); and
 
   
if the Reference Value is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted for adjustments to the number of shares issuable upon exercise or the exercise price of a warrant as described under the heading “— Anti-dilution Adjustments”), the private placement warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding public warrants, as described above.
 
11

In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional shares of Class A common stock or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of a Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than
$9.20 per
share of Class A common stock (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or its affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than
60%
of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of a Business Combination on the date of the consummation of a Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the shares of Class A common stock during the
20
trading day period starting on the trading day prior to
the
day on which the Company consummates a Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, then the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to
115%
of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, the
$18.00 per
share redemption trigger price and the “Redemption of Warrants when the price per share of Class A common stock equals or exceeds
$10.00
” described above will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to
180%
of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the
$10.00 

per
share redemption trigger price described above.

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units being sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants are not transferable, assignable or saleable until 
30
 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants are exercisable for cash or on a cashless basis, at the holder’s option, and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees (except for a number of shares of Class A common stock as described above under Redemption of warrants for Class A common stock). If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company in all redemption scenarios and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants. 
The Company accounts for the 14,897,155 warrants that were issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering (comprised of the 11,500,000 Public Warrants and the 3,397,155 Private Placement Warrants) in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC
815-40.
Such guidance provides that because the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, each warrant must be recorded as a liability.
The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record a derivative liability upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. Accordingly, the Company classifies each warrant as a liability at its fair value and the warrants were allocated a portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the Units equal to its fair value. This liability is subject to
re-measurement
at each balance sheet date. With each such
re-measurement,
the warrant liability will be adjusted to fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company will reassess the classification at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the warrants will be reclassified as of the date of the event that causes the reclassification.
NOTE 8. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Registration and Shareholder Rights
The holders of the Founder Shares and Private Placement Warrants (and any shares of Class A common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans and upon conversion of the Founder Shares) will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights and shareholder agreement to be signed prior to or on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering, requiring the Company to register such securities for resale (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion to shares of Class A common stock). The holders of these securities will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders will have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination and rights to require the Company to register for resale such securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. However, the registration and shareholder rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable
lock-up
period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Underwriter’s agreement
The Company granted the underwriter a
45-day
option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 3,000,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discount, which the underwriter exercised in full on September 14, 2021. The underwriter was paid a cash underwriting discount of $2,335,058 in the aggregate, paid on the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the underwriter is entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $8,050,000 in the aggregate. The deferred fee is payable to the underwriter 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.
Forward Purchase Agreement
In August 2021, the Company has entered into a forward purchase agreement with Franklin Strategic Series – Franklin Small Cap Growth Fund (the “forward purchase agreement”), a Delaware statutory trust (“Franklin”), whereby Franklin has agreed to purchase (subject to certain conditions set forth therein) 5,000,000 shares of Class A common stock plus 2,500,000 forward purchase warrants, exercisable to purchase one share of Class A common stock
 
12

at $11.50 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $50,000,000, or $10.00 for one share of Class A common stock and
one-half
of one warrant
, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of the initial business combination. The obligations under the forward purchase agreement do not depend on whether any shares of Class A common stock are redeemed by the Company’s public stockholders.
Subject to certain conditions set forth in the forward purchase agreement, Franklin may transfer the rights and obligations under the forward purchase agreement, in whole or in part, to forward transferees, provided that upon such transfer the forward transferees assume the rights and obligations of Franklin under the forward purchase agreement. The proceeds from the sale of the forward purchase securities may be used as part of the consideration to the sellers in the Company’s initial Business Combination, for expenses in connection with its initial Business Combination or for working capital in the post-transaction company.
The Company accounts for the forward purchase agreement in accordance with the guidance in ASC
815-40
as derivative liability. The liability is subject to
re-measurement
at each balance sheet date, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations.
NOTE 9. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company’s warrant liability was valued at $5,374,850 and $7,469,150, respectively. Under the guidance in ASC
815-40,
the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment. As such, the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants must be recorded on the balance sheet at fair value. This valuation is subject to
re-measurement
at each balance sheet date. With each
re-measurement,
the valuations will be adjusted to fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s statement of operations.
The following table presents fair value information as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques the Company utilized to determine such fair value. The Company’s warrant liability is based on a valuation model utilizing management judgment and pricing inputs from observable and unobservable markets with less volume and transaction frequency than active markets. Significant deviations from these estimates and inputs could result in a material change in fair value. The fair value of the private warrant liability and forward purchase unit liability are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The Company’s transferred the fair value of Public Warrants from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 measurement as a result of the Public Warrants detaching from the Units and becoming separately tradable:

The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs. (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities).
The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

Measurement
The Company established the initial fair value for the warrants on September 14, 2021, the date of the consummation of the Company’s IPO. The Company used a lattice model and Monte Carlo simulation model to value the warrants. The Company allocated the proceeds received from (i) the sale of Units (which is inclusive of one share of Class A common stock and
one-half
of one Public Warrant
), (ii) the sale of Private Placement Warrants, and (iii) the issuance of Class B common stock, first to the warrants based on their fair values as determined at initial measurement, with the remaining proceeds allocated to Class A common stock subject to possible redemption (temporary equity), Class A common stock (permanent equity) and Class B common stock (permanent equity) based on their relative fair values at the initial measurement date.
The key inputs into the lattice model and Monte Carlo simulation model formula were as follows at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021:
 
    
Private Placement Warrants

The forward purchase agreement is a plain vanilla forward contract with delivery of the Units and payment contingent on the consummation of an acquisition. The value per forward purchase unit is equal to the probability of an acquisition occurring, multiplied by the value of the unit at the initial public offering date, multiplied by (1 –
exp(-rt))
where r is the risk-free rate of interest and t is the time to acquisition.
The key inputs into the formula were as follows at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021:

NOTE 10. INCOME TAX
During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company did
not
record any income tax benefits for the net operating losses incurred due to the uncertainty of realizing a benefit from those items.
The Company has evaluated the positive and negative evidence bearing upon its ability to realize its deferred tax assets, which primarily consist of net operating loss carryforwards. The Company considered the history of cumulative net losses, estimated future taxable income and prudent and feasible tax planning strategies, and have concluded that it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize the benefits of its deferred tax assets. As such, the Company recorded a full valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.
NOTE 11. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date up to May 10, 2022, the date that the financial statements were issued. Based upon this review, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the condensed financial statements.

The registration statement for our Initial Public Offering was declared effective on September 9, 2021. On September 14, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 23,000,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A common stock included in the Units being offered, the “Class A common stock” or “public shares”), including the issuance of 3,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriter’s exercise of its over-allotment option, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of approximately $230 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $22,517,063 million, consisting of $2,335,058 underwriter fees, $8,050,000 deferred underwriting commissions, $640,129 of actual offering costs, and $11,491,876 of excess fair value of Founder Shares.
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 3,397,155 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant with our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of approximately $5,095,733 million.
Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the full exercise of the over-allotment option and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, an amount of $230 million ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”).
We have until September 14, 2022 to consummate a Business Combination (the “Combination Period”) (or March 14, 2023 if we were to exercise the two three-month extensions). However, if we have not completed a Business Combination within the Combination Period, we 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 100% of the public shares, at a
per-share
price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned and not previously released to us to pay our taxes, if any (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then issued and outstanding public shares, which redemption will completely extinguish the rights of the public shareholders 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 public shareholders and its Board of Directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law.
Results of Operations
Our entire activity from inception through March 31, 2022 relates to our formation, the Initial Public Offering and, since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, a search for a Business Combination candidate. We will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our Business Combination at the earliest.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had net income of approximately $1.5 million, which consisted of $0.5 million in general and administrative expenses and a $0.1 million loss on the change in the fair value of the forward purchase unit liability, offset by a $2.1 million gain on the change in the fair value of warrant liability, interest income and unrealized gain on marketable securities held in the trust account.
Going Concern
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $597,522 in operating cash and working capital of $645,674.
The Company’s liquidity needs up to September 14, 2021 had been satisfied through a payment from the Sponsor and Metric of $25,000 for Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B common stock” and shares thereof, “Founder Shares”) (see Note 5 to the unaudited condensed financial statements included herein), the Initial Public Offering and the issuance of the Private Placement Warrants. Additionally, the Company drew on an unsecured promissory note to pay certain offering costs.
The Company has incurred and expects to continue to incur significant costs in pursuit of its financing and acquisition plans. The Company lacks the financial resources it needs to sustain operations for a reasonable period of time, which is considered to be one year from the issuance date of the financial
 
15

statements. Although no formal agreement exists, the Sponsor is committed to extend Working Capital Loans as needed. The Company cannot assure stockholders that its plans to consummate an initial Business Combination will be successful. In addition, management is currently evaluating the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic and its effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations and/or search for a target company.
These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern one year from the date these financial statements are issued. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
Off-Balance
Sheet Arrangements
We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered
off-balance
sheet arrangements as of March 31, 2022. 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 as of March 31, 2022 other than an agreement for an optional payment to an affiliate of our sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space and administrative support to the Company. We began incurring these fees on September 13, 2021 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of the business combination and the Company’s liquidation.
The underwriter of the IPO is entitled to a deferred discount of $0.35 per Unit, or $8,050,000 in the aggregate. The deferred discount will become payable to the underwriter from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that we complete a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.
Commitments and Contingencies
Registration Rights
The holders of the Founder Shares (including the anchor investors), Private Placement Warrants (and holders of their component securities, as applicable) and any warrants that may be issued upon conversion of the Company Loans (as defined in the unaudited condensed financial statements included herein) will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration and stockholder rights agreement to be signed prior to or on the effective date of the registration statement relating to the Initial Public Offering, requiring the Company to register such securities for resale (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion to shares of Class A common stock). On and after the date the Company consummates an initial Business Combination, the holders of at least a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the consummation of a Business Combination and rights to require the Company to register for resale such securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Pursuant to the forward purchase agreement, the Company has agreed (a) to use commercially reasonable efforts to file within 30 calendar days after the closing of the initial business combination a registration statement with the SEC for a secondary offering of the forward purchase securities, (b) to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to be declared effective as soon as practicable thereafter but no later than the earlier of (i) the 90th calendar day (or 120th calendar day if the SEC notifies us that it will “review” the registration statement) following the closing of the initial business combination and (ii) the 10th business day after the date we are notified by the SEC that the registration statement will not be “reviewed” or will not be subject to further review and (iii) to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement until the earliest of (A) the date on which Franklin or its assignees cease to hold the securities covered thereby, (B) the date all of the securities covered thereby can be sold publicly without restriction or limitation under Rule 144 under the Securities Act and (C) 2 years from the effective date of the registration statement. The Company will bear the cost of registering these securities.
Forward Purchase Agreement
In August 2021, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement with Franklin Strategic Series—Franklin Small Cap Growth Fund (the “forward purchase agreement”), a Delaware statutory trust (“Franklin”), whereby Franklin has agreed to purchase (subject to certain conditions set forth therein) 5,000,000 shares of Class A common stock plus 2,500,000 forward purchase warrants, exercisable to purchase one share of Class A common stock at $11.50 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $50,000,000, or $10.00 for one share of Class A common stock and
one-half
of one warrant, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of the initial business combination. The obligations under the forward purchase agreement do not depend on whether any shares of Class A common stock are redeemed by the Company’s public stockholders.
Subject to certain conditions set forth in the forward purchase agreement, Franklin may transfer the rights and obligations under the forward purchase agreement, in whole or in part, to forward transferees, provided that upon such transfer the forward transferees assume the rights and obligations of Franklin under the forward purchase agreement. The proceeds from the sale of the forward purchase securities may be used as part of the consideration to the sellers in the Company’s initial Business Combination, for expenses in connection with its initial Business Combination or for working capital in the post-transaction company.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the
 
16

Table of Contents
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 as our critical accounting policies:
Class A common stock Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company accounts for its Class A common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC 480. Shares of Class A common stock subject to mandatory redemption is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features redemption rights that is either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s Class A common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, Class A common stock subject to possible redemption is presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s balance sheet.
Net Loss per Common Stock
The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share”. The statement of operations includes a presentation of income (loss) per Class A redeemable common stock and loss per
non-redeemable
common stock following the
two-class
method of income per common stock. In order to determine the net income (loss) attributable to both the Class A redeemable common stock and
non-redeemable
common stock, the Company first considered the total income (loss) allocable to both sets of stock. This is calculated using the total net income (loss) less any dividends paid. For purposes of calculating net income (loss) per share, any remeasurement of the Class A common stock subject to possible redemption was treated as dividends paid to the public stockholders. Subsequent to calculating the total income (loss) allocable to both sets of stock, the Company split the amount to be allocated using a ratio of 80% for the Class A redeemable common stock and 20% for the
non-redeemable
common stock for the period three months ended March 31, 2022, reflective of the respective participation rights.
Warrant Liability
The Company accounted for the 14,897,155 warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement Warrants (collectively, the “Warrants”) as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the Warrant’s specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480 and ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the warrants are indexed to the company’s own common stock, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of warrant issuance and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the warrants are outstanding.
Such guidance provides that because the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, each warrant must be recorded as a liability. The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record a derivative liability upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. Accordingly, the Company will classify each warrant as a liability at its fair value and the warrants will be allocated a portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the Units equal to its fair value. This liability is subject to
re-measurement
at each balance sheet date. With each such
re-measurement,
the warrant liability will be adjusted to fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company will reassess the classification at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the warrants will be reclassified as of the date of the event that causes the reclassification.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU
No. 2020-06,
“Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic
470-20)
and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic
815-40):
Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU
2020-06”),
which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. ASU
2020-06
removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception and it also simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. ASU
2020-06
is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact, if any, that ASU
2020-06
would have on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Our management does not believe that there are any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our balance sheet.

Item 4.
Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2022. Based upon their evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were not effective, due to the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting related to the Company’s accounting for complex financial instruments. As a result, we performed additional analysis as deemed necessary to ensure that our financial statements were prepared in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report present fairly in all material respects our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the period presented.
Previously Identified Material Weakness
Management previously identified a material weakness in our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of December 31, 2021.
Remediation Activities
Following the determination of the material weakness, we implemented a remediation plan to enhance our processes for identifying and appropriately applying applicable accounting requirements. We plan to continue to enhance our review procedures of evaluating and implementing the accounting standards that apply to our financial statements, including through additional analyses by our personnel and third-party professionals with whom we consult regarding complex accounting. The elements of our remediation plan can only be accomplished over time, and we can offer no assurance that these initiatives will ultimately have the intended effects.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
Other than the matters discussed above, there was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in
Rules 13a-15(f)
and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022 covered by this Quarterly Report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 1A.
Risk Factors
Reference is made to Part I Item 1A. Risk Factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Except as set forth below, there have been no material changes to the risk factors contained in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Changes in laws or regulations, or a failure to comply with any laws and regulations, may adversely affect our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our initial business combination, investments and results of operations.
We are subject to laws and regulations enacted by national, regional and local governments. In particular, we are required to comply with certain SEC and other legal requirements. Compliance with, and monitoring of, applicable laws and regulations may be difficult, time consuming and costly. Those laws and regulations and their interpretation and application may also change from time to time and those changes could have a material adverse effect on our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our Business Combination, investments and results of operations. In addition, a failure to comply with applicable laws or regulations, as interpreted and applied, could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
On March 30, 2022, the SEC issued proposed rules relating to, among other items, enhancing disclosures in business combination transactions involving SPACs and private operating companies; amending the financial statement requirements applicable to transactions involving shell companies; effectively limiting the use of projections in SEC filings in connection with proposed business combination transactions; increasing the potential liability of certain participants in proposed business combination transactions; and the extent to which SPACs could become subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act of 1940. These rules, if adopted, whether in the form proposed or in revised form, and certain positions and legal conclusions expressed by the SEC in connection therewith, may materially adversely affect our ability to negotiate and complete our Business Combination and may increase the costs and time related thereto.
 
Item 2.
Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds
Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
On September 14, 2021, simultaneously with the consummation of the closing of the Offering, the Company consummated the private placement of an aggregate of 3,397,155 Private Placement Warrants (the “Private Warrants”) to certain funds and accounts managed by First Light Acquisition Group, LLC, the sponsor of the Company (the “Sponsor”) and Metric Finance Holdings I, LLC (“Metric”), at a price of $1.50 per Private Warrant, generating total gross proceeds of $5,095,733. No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sale. The issuance of the Private Warrants was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units being sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants are not transferable, assignable or saleable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants are exercisable for cash or on a cashless basis, at the holder’s option, and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees (except for a number of shares of Class A common stock as described above under Redemption of warrants for Class A common stock). If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company in all redemption scenarios and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.
