Overview


We were incorporated on August 20, 2020 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 (a "Business Combination").

On December 10, 2020, we completed our Initial Public Offering of 27,600,000 units, including the issuance of 3,600,000 Units as a result of the exercise in full of the underwriters' over-allotment option, each unit consisting of one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, and one-half of one redeemable warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $276,000,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of an aggregate of 752,000 private units at a price of $10.00 per private unit in a private placement to the Sponsor and CA Co-Investment. Each private unit consists of one share of the Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the private placement, a total of $276,000,000 ($10.00 per unit) was placed in a U.S.-based trust account, with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee (the "Trust Account").

As indicated in the accompanying condensed financial statements, as of September 30, 2021 we held cash of $345,461 and investments in our Trust Account of $276,043,536. Further, we expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete our initial Business Combination will be successful.

Significant Events and Transactions

We entered into a business combination agreement with Circle Internet Financial Limited ("Circle") on July 7, 2021. Pursuant to the agreement, and assuming the satisfaction or waiver of various closing conditions, including approval by the shareholders of Circle and Concord, Circle Acquisition Public Limited Company ("Topco") will combine with the Company in a business combination that will result in each of the Company and Circle becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Topco (the "Business Combination").

Refer to Note 1 to our financial statements for further details on the proposed Business Combination.




Results of Operations



We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. The only activities through September 30, 2021 were operating activities necessary to identifying a target company for an initial Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our initial Business Combination. We will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account and will recognize unrealized gains or losses from changes in the fair values of our warrant liability. We will 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.



                                       21




For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $11,355,963 which consisted of an unrealized loss of $10,965,792 from the change in the fair value of our warrant liability and general operating expenses of $397,129, partially offset by interest earned on our investments in the Trust Account of $6,958.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $14,177,756 which consisted of an unrealized loss of $13,236,294 from the change in the fair value of our warrant liability and general operating expenses of $979,056, partially offset by interest earned on our investments in the Trust Account of $37,594.

For the period from August 20, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2020 we had a net loss of $479 related to formation costs.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had cash of $345,461 and 1,082,101, respectively.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the private placement, a total of $276,000,000 ($10.00 per unit) was placed in the Trust Account, with Continental Stock Transfer& Trust Company acting as trustee. As of September 30, 2021, our investments in the Trust Account consisted of money market funds of $276,043,536 (including $43,536 of income since the initial public offering). Income on the balance in the Trust Account may be used to pay taxes. Through September 30, 2021, we did not withdraw any interest earned on the Trust Account to pay our taxes.

For nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $736,640 which was used to pay expenses. For the period from August 20, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2020, cash used in operating activities was $479 which was used to pay expenses. Cash used in investing activities consisted of the maturities of treasury securities and the purchase of a money market fund within the Trust Account. There were no financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. For the period from August 20, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2020, cash used in financing activities was $25,000 related to a capital contribution from our sponsors in exchange for the issuance of the founder shares.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less deferred underwriting commissions and income taxes payable), to complete our Business Combination. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our 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.

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.

In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial Business Combination, our sponsor or an affiliate of our sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, provide non-interest-bearing loans to us as may be required. If we complete our initial Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our initial Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the trust account to repay such loaned amounts, but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into units, at a price of $10.00 per unit at the option of the lender, upon consummation of our initial Business Combination. The units would be identical to the private units.

On November 2, 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company up to $350,000 to be used to pay operating expenses. This loan is non-interest bearing, unsecured and due at the closing of a business combination. The Company had not borrowed any amount under the promissory note as of the date which these unaudited condensed financial statements were issued.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds following the IPO in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimates 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 completion of our initial Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. In addition, we intend to target businesses larger than we could acquire with the net proceeds of the IPO and the sale of the placement units, and may as a result be required to seek additional financing to complete such proposed initial Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our initial Business Combination. If we are unable to complete 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.



                                       22




Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements; Commitments and Contractual Obligations

As of September 30, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a) (4)(ii) of Regulation S-K and did not have any commitments or contractual obligations, other than (i) an agreement to pay an affiliate of our sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, administrative and support services. We began incurring these fees in December 2020 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of our initial Business Combination and our liquidation; and (ii) an obligation to pay a marketing fee of $9,660,000 to Cowen and Company, LLC upon the consummation of our initial Business Combination, pursuant to a Business Combination Marketing Agreement entered into in connection with our initial public offering.
