CLIMATE REAL IMPACT SOLUTIONS II ACQUISITION CORP MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (form 10-Q)

11/15/2021 | 03:06pm EDT

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

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and Section 21E of the Exchange Act that are not historical facts and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected and projected. All statements, other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 10-Q including, without limitation, statements in 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. Words such as "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate," "seek" and variations and similar words and expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements relate to future events or future performance, but reflect management's current beliefs, based on information currently available. A number of factors could cause actual events, performance or results to differ materially from the events, performance and results discussed in the forward-looking statements. For information identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, please refer to the Risk Factors section of the Company's final prospectus for its Initial Public Offering filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Company's securities filings can be accessed on the EDGAR section of the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Except as expressly required by applicable securities law, the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Overview

We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on December 2, 2020 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar business combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our business combination using cash from the proceeds of the IPO and the sale of the private placement warrants, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

We expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete an initial business combination will be successful.

Results of Operations

We classify the warrants issued in connection with our IPO and concurrent private placement as liabilities at their fair value and adjust the warrant liability to fair value at each reporting period. This liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in our statement of operations.

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from January 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021 were organizational activities, those necessary to identify a target company for a business combination, as described below. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our initial business combination. We expect to generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held after the IPO. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had net income of $2,285,294, which consists of operating costs of $1,102,893, offset by interest income from bank of $12, interest earned on investments held in Trust Account of $3,710, and a non-cash change in fair value of derivative liability of $3,384,465.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we had net income of $4,235,582, which consists of operating costs of $2,577,305, transaction costs related to warrant issuance of $622,106, offset by a non-cash change in fair value of derivative liability of $7,427,721, interest income from bank of $53 and interest earned on investments held in Trust Account of $7,219.

As noted in Note 2 to the Company's financial statements as of September 30, 2021, the Company concluded it should revise its financial statements to present all redeemable Class A common stock as temporary equity and recognize accretion from the initial book value to redemption value at the time of its initial public offering. In connection with the change in presentation for the Class A common stock subject to redemption, the Company also revised its income (loss) per common share calculation to allocate net income (loss) evenly to Class A and Class B common stock. There has been no change in the Company's total assets, liabilities or operating results.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

On January 29, 2021, we consummated the IPO of 24,150,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit, which includes the full exercise by the underwriters of their over-allotment option in the amount of 3,150,000 units, generating gross proceeds of $241.5 million. Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, we consummated the sale of 4,553,333 private placement warrants at a price of $1.50 per private placement warrant in a private placement to our stockholders, generating gross proceeds of $6.83 million.

Following the IPO, the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the underwriters and the sale of the private placement warrants, a total of $241.5 million was placed in the Trust Account. We incurred $13.6 million in transaction costs, including $4.4 million of underwriting fees, $8.45 million of deferred underwriting fees and $0.8 million of other offering costs.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $1,254,133 comprised of net income of $4,235,582 and changes in fair value of warrant liabilities of $7,427,721, interest earned on investments held in Trust Account of $7,219, transaction cost related to warrant liability of $622,106, and the changes in operating assets and liabilities of $1,323,119.

As of September 30, 2021, we had cash and investments held in the Trust Account of approximately $241.5 million. We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account to complete our initial business combination. We may withdraw interest to pay taxes. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

As of September 30, 2021, we had approximately $0.4 million of cash held outside of the Trust Account. We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete an initial business combination.

The Sponsor, or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors or their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, extend us working capital loans as may be required in order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with an initial business combination. If we complete an initial business combination, we would repay the working capital loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to us. Otherwise, the working capital loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that an initial business combination does not close, we may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the working capital loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the working capital loans. The working capital loans would either be repaid upon consummation of an initial business combination, without interest, or, at the lender's discretion, up to $2.0 million of such working capital loans may be convertible into warrants of the post-business combination entity. The warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such working capital loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating an initial business combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our initial business combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete our initial business combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon consummation of our initial business combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such initial business combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the consummate of our initial business combination. If we are unable to consummate our initial business combination because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account. In addition, following our initial business combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

Related Party Transactions

Payments to an Affiliate

Commencing as of February 2021, we have been and will continue to make payments of approximately $70,000 per month on an annualized basis to Climate Real Impact Solutions Services LLC, an entity owned by John Cavalier, our Chief Financial Officer, and David Crane, our Chief Executive Officer, and managed by Ms. Frank-Shapiro, our Chief Operating Officer, for consulting services rendered to us. Messrs. Cavalier and Crane also receive health insurance benefits from Climate Real Impact Solutions Services LLC. Upon completion of the proposed business combination, it is expected that we would cease to make any further payments.

Promissory Note

On December 11, 2020, we issued the promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which we borrowed $250,000 from the Sponsor in order to pay certain transaction expenses associated with our initial public offering. The promissory note was non-interest bearing and payable on the earlier of June 30, 2021 or the consummation of the our initial public offering. Upon completion of the initial public offering on January 29, 2021, we repaid the promissory note in full. As of September 30, 2021, the outstanding balance under the promissory note was $0.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2021. 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 did not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than as described below.

The underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per unit, or approximately $8.45 million in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that we consummate an initial business combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

We entered into various consulting arrangements with several service providers for administrative services and potential target financial analysis and due diligence services to us. These arrangements provide for aggregate monthly fees of approximately $70,000.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires our management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the 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 critical accounting policies:

                                       18

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

Table of Contents

Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

We account for our Class A common stock subject to possible redemption, if any, in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 480 "Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity." 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 feature redemption rights that is either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders' equity. Our Class A common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders' equity section of our condensed balance sheets.

Warrant Liability

We account for the warrants in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40-15-7D and 7F under which the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment and must be recorded as liabilities. Accordingly, we classify the warrants as liabilities at their fair value and adjust the warrants to fair value at each reporting period. This liability is 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 fair value of the warrants issued in the initial public offering has been estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation methodology as of the date of the initial public offering and such warrants' quoted market prices as of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2021. The private placement warrants were valued using a Modified Black Scholes Option Pricing Model.

Net Income (Loss) per share of Common Stock

Net income (loss) per share of common stock is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common stock outstanding for the period. The Company applies the two-class method in calculating net income (loss) per share. Accretion associated with the redeemable shares of Class A common stock is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Recent Accounting Standards

Our management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our financial statements.
