Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Revised Indenture


Pursuant to the Original Indenture, the Convertible Notes were to be convertible into SPAC Class A Ordinary Shares, at a conversion rate that represents a conversion premium (the “Conversion Premium”) of 15.0% to the conversion price. The conversion price was subject to a one-time reset on the reset date (the “Reset Date”), which was initially the one-year anniversary of the date of issuance of the Convertible Notes (the “Issuance Date”), to the average of the Daily VWAPs (as defined in the Original Indenture) over the twenty (20) consecutive trading day period beginning on, and including, the first trading day following such Reset Date, subject to a minimum of $5.00 and maximum of $10.00 per SPAC Class A Ordinary Share.


The Revised Indenture: (i) decreases the Conversion Premium to 10.0%; (ii) provides for multiple Reset Dates, each occurring monthly for the first twelve (12) months following the Issuance Date; and (iii) revises the Reset Price to be the lesser of (a) the Reset Price with respect to the immediately prior Reset Date and (b) the average of the Daily VWAPs (as defined in the Indenture) over the twenty (20) consecutive trading day period ending on the trading day immediately preceding the applicable Reset Date, subject to a minimum of $1.50 and maximum of $10.00 per share of Common Stock.


Callaway Subscription Agreement


On May 4, 2023, SPAC and Callaway Capital Management LLC (“Callaway”) entered into a Convertible Note Subscription Agreement (the “Callaway Subscription Agreement”). Callaway is an affiliate of a director of SPAC and the Callaway Subscription Agreement was unanimously approved by the SPAC board of directors. Pursuant to the terms of the Callaway Subscription Agreement, Callaway or its designee has the option (but not the obligation) to subscribe for up to $40,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes during the period beginning on the Closing Date and the one year anniversary of the Closing Date.
