CAPSTAR SPECIAL PURPOSE ACQUISITION CORP. : Other Events (form 8-K)

01/10/2022 | 06:27am EDT

Item 8.01. Other Events.

As previously disclosed, on July 19, 2021, Capstar Special Purpose Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (the "Company" or "CPSR"), entered into a Business Combination Agreement (as amended on November 8, 2021 and December 30, 2021, the "Business Combination Agreement"), by and among the Company, CPSR Gelesis Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSR ("Merger Sub") and Gelesis, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Gelesis") that, among other things, provides for Merger Sub to merge with and into Gelesis, with Gelesis as the surviving company in the merger and, after giving effect to such merger, Gelesis to be a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the "Merger"). Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, the obligations of the parties to consummate the Merger are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions of the respective parties, including, among other closing conditions, that the Company's total available cash at the Effective Time, after giving effect to (i) the $90.0 million PIPE Financing and (ii) the Capstar Stockholder Redemptions, must not be less than $105 million (the "Minimum Cash Condition").

In connection with the Special Meeting of stockholders of the Company, being virtually held on January 11, 2022, a total of 27,260,179 shares of the Company's Class A common stock ("Shares") were presented for redemption, including 1,000,000 Shares held by GCCU VI LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("G VI") and 1,000,000 Shares held by TOCU XXIX LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("T XXIX"), each an affiliate of Pacific Investment Management Company LLC. As a result, there is presently approximately $3.4 million remaining in the trust account following redemptions. As part of the PIPE Financing, subject to the terms and conditions of their respective subscription agreements, G VI agreed to purchase 1,750,000 Shares and T XXIX agreed to purchase 1,750,000 Shares, in each case, at a cash purchase price of $10.00 per share, comprising $35.0 million of the $90.0 million of expected aggregate proceeds from the PIPE Financing. As previously disclosed, on December 30, 2021, the Company entered into a Backstop Agreement (the "Backstop Agreement") with the purchasers party thereto (the "Backstop Purchasers"), pursuant to which the Backstop Purchasers agreed to purchase an aggregate of up to 1,500,000 Shares immediately prior to the Closing at a cash purchase price of $10.00 per share, resulting in aggregate proceeds of up to $15.0 million, which amount, when added to the proceeds from the PIPE Financing, is expected to ensure that the Minimum Cash Condition will be satisfied. In accordance with the terms and conditions of the Backstop Agreement, the Backstop Purchasers will purchase 1,159,927 Shares immediately prior to Closing for an aggregate purchase price of $11,599,270. In addition, subject to the terms and conditions of the Backstop Agreement, at the closing of the sale of the Shares purchased by the Backstop Purchasers, the Company will issue to the Backstop Purchasers an additional 1,983,750 Shares, equal to the number of Capstar Class B Shares forfeited by Capstar Sponsor Group LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the "Sponsor"), and certain affiliates of the Sponsor in accordance with the Amendment to Sponsor Letter Agreement entered into by the Company, the Sponsor, certain affiliates of the Sponsor and Gelesis on November 8, 2021.

Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Current Report on Form 8-K have the meanings given to such terms in the Business Combination Agreement.
