08/11/2021 | 06:06am EST

References to the "Company," "us," "our" or "we" refer to Atlantic Avenue Acquisition Corp. The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed financial statements and related notes included herein.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Report including, without limitation, statements under this "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" regarding the Company's financial position, business strategy and the plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward- looking statements. When used in this Report, words such as "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend" and similar expressions, as they relate to us or the Company's management, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company's management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward- looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in our filings with the SEC. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on the Company's behalf are qualified in their entirety by this paragraph.

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this Report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

Overview

We are a recently incorporated blank check company incorporated as a Delaware corporation and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, which we refer to throughout this report as our initial business combination. We have not selected any business combination target and we have not, nor has anyone on our behalf, initiated any substantive discussions, directly or indirectly, with any business combination target.

In September 2020, our independent directors purchased, in advance, an aggregate of 300,000 private placement warrants, at a price of $1.00 per warrant, for an aggregate purchase price of $300,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, Atlantic Avenue Partners LLC (the "sponsor") purchased an aggregate of 3,950,000 private placement warrants and ASA Co-Investment LLC ("ASA Co-Investment") purchased an aggregate of 2,750,000 private placement warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant, for an aggregate purchase price of $6,700,000. A portion of the $7,000,000 proceeds from the private placements were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the trust account.

As of June 30, 2021 we held cash of $1,190,861 and deferred legal fees of $640,067. Further, we expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to raise capital or to complete our initial business combination will be successful.

Results of Operations

Our entire activity since inception up to June 30, 2021 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 initial Business Combination, at the earliest.

For the three months ended June 30, 2021, we had net loss of $3,037,998, which consisted of $3,765 in interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account and cash held in the working capital account, and $2,732,800 in unrealized loss on change in fair value of warrants, offset by $308,963 in formation and operating costs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Table of Contents For the six months ended June 30, 2021, we had net income of $3,832,249, which consisted of $7,495 in interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account and cash held in the working capital account, and $4,227,000 in unrealized gain on change in fair value of warrants, offset by $402,246 in formation and operating costs.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2021, we had cash of $1,190,861, and working capital of $1,196,242.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating the business. However, if the estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating a Business Combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to the Business Combination. Moreover, in addition to the access of the Working Capital Loans (as defined in Note 5 to the Company's Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements), we may need to obtain other financing either to complete our Business Combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of the public shares upon consummation of our Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of the Business Combination. If we are unable to complete the Business Combination because we do not have sufficient funds available, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account. In addition, following the Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

                                       21

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Table of Contents Based on the foregoing, management believes that we will have sufficient working capital and borrowing capacity from the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors to meet the needs through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or one year from this filing. Over this time period, we will be using these funds for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective initial Business Combination candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to merge with or acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The preparation of the unaudited condensed financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited condensed financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. We have identified the following as our critical accounting policies:

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 features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company's control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, 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 Income Per Common Share

Net income per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for each of the periods. The calculation of diluted income per common share does not consider the effect of the warrants issued in connection with the (i) IPO, and (ii) Private Placement since the exercise of the warrants are contingent upon the occurrence of future events. The warrants are exercisable to purchase 19,500,000 shares of common stock in the aggregate.

Derivative Warrant Liabilities

We do not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. We evaluate all of our financial instruments, including issued stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to ASC 480 and ASC 815-15. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

We issued 12,500,00 warrants to purchase shares of Class A common stock to investors in our Initial Public Offering and issued 7,000,000 private placement warrants. All of our outstanding warrants are recognized as derivative liabilities in accordance with ASC 815-40. Accordingly, we recognize the warrant instruments as liabilities at fair value and adjust the instruments to fair value at each reporting period. The liabilities are subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in our statement of operations. The private placement warrants were initially valued at their purchase price ($1.00 per warrant). Their value as of June 30, 2021 was determined using a Monte Carlo Simulation. The Public Warrants were initially valued using a Monte Carlo Simulation. Their value as of June 30, 2021 was determined based on the closing market price of the Public Warrants as of that date.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of June 30, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K.
