PEARL HOLDINGS ACQUISITION CORP Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. (form 10-K)

03/31/2022 | 05:29pm EST

References to the "Company," "our," "us" or "we" refer to Pearl Holdings Acquisition Corp. The following discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes related thereto which are included in "Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data" of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including those set forth under "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Risk Factor Summary," "Item 1A. Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Overview

We are a newly incorporated blank check company, incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our initial business combination using cash from the proceeds of the offering and the sale of the private placement warrants, our shares, debt or a combination of cash, shares and debt.

The issuance of additional ordinary shares or preference shares in a business combination:

? may significantly dilute the equity interest of investors, which dilution would

increase if the anti-dilution provisions in the Class B ordinary shares

resulted in the issuance of Class A ordinary shares on a greater than

one-to-one basis upon conversion of the Class B ordinary shares;

? may subordinate the rights of holders of ordinary shares if preference shares

are issued with rights senior to those afforded our ordinary shares;

? could cause a change of control if a substantial number of our ordinary shares

are issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability to use our net

operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could result in the resignation or

removal of our present directors and officers;

? may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us by

diluting the share ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to obtain

control of us;

? may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our units, ordinary shares

and/or warrants; and

? may not result in adjustment to the exercise price of our warrants. Similarly,

if we issue debt or otherwise incur significant indebtedness, it could result

in:

? default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating revenues after an

initial business combination are insufficient to repay our debt obligations;

? acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we make all

principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain covenants that

require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves without a

waiver or renegotiation of that covenant;

? our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the

debt is payable on demand;

? our inability to obtain necessary additional financing if the debt contains

covenants restricting our ability to obtain such financing while the debt is

outstanding;

? our inability to pay dividends on our ordinary shares;




                                       43



? using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest on

our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our ordinary

shares if declared, expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other

general corporate purposes;

? limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our

business and in the industry in which we operate;

? increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry and

competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation; and

? limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses, capital

expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution of our

strategy and other purposes and other disadvantages compared to our competitors

who have less debt.

As indicated in the accompanying financial statements, at December 31, 2021 we had cash of $1,369,047 outside of our trust account and working capital of $1,198,719. 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. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Results of Operations

For the period from March 23, 2021 (Inception) through December 31, 2021, we had a net loss of $113,693 of formation and operating costs.

Our business activities from inception to December 31, 2021 consisted primarily of our formation and completing our IPO, and since the offering, our activity has been limited to identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition targets for a Business Combination.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our liquidity needs have been satisfied prior to the completion of this offering through $25,000 paid by the sponsor to cover certain of our offering and formation costs in exchange for the issuance of the founder shares to our sponsor and up to $300,000 in loans from our sponsor under an unsecured promissory note. As of December 31, 2021, there were no borrowings under the promissory note. The net proceeds from (1) the sale of the units in the offering and the over-allotment, after deducting payment of accrued offering expenses of approximately $712,588 and underwriting commissions of $4,000,000, excluding deferred underwriting commissions of $7,000,000 and (2) the sale of the private placement warrants for a purchase price of $10,000,000 was $205,287,412. Of this amount, $204,000,000 was deposited into the trust account. The funds in the trust account will be invested only in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds investing solely in U.S. Treasuries. The remaining $1,287,412 will not be held in the trust account.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the trust account (which interest shall be net of taxes payable and excluding deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our initial business combination. We may withdraw interest to pay taxes, if any. Our annual income tax obligations will depend on the amount of interest and other income earned on the amounts held in the trust account. We expect the interest earned on the amount in the trust account will be sufficient to pay our taxes. We expect the only taxes payable by us out of the funds in the trust account will be income and franchise taxes, if any. To the extent that our ordinary shares 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.

Prior to the completion of our initial business combination, we will have available to us $1,287,412 of proceeds held outside the trust account. We will use these funds 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, structure, negotiate and complete a business combination, and to pay taxes to the extent the interest earned on the trust account is not sufficient to pay our taxes.


                                       44



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 directors and officers may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete our initial business combination, we may repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the trust account released to us. Otherwise, such loans may be repaid only out of funds held outside the trust account. 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 to repay such loaned amounts. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants issued to our sponsor. The terms of such loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. We do not expect to seek loans from parties other than our sponsor or an affiliate of our sponsor as we do not believe third parties will be willing to loan such funds and provide a waiver against any and all rights to seek access to funds in our trust account.

We expect our primary liquidity requirements during that period to include approximately $300,000 for legal, accounting, due diligence, travel and other expenses in connection with any business combinations; $135,000 for legal and accounting fees related to regulatory reporting requirements; $59,500 for continued exchange listing fees; $270,000 for office space, administrative and support services; $540,000 for directors and officers insurance premiums and approximately $45,000 for general working capital that will be used for miscellaneous expenses and reserves net of estimated interest income.

These amounts are estimates and may differ materially from our actual expenses. In addition, we could use a portion of the funds not being placed in trust to pay commitment fees for financing, fees to consultants to assist us with our search for a target business or as a down payment or to fund a "no-shop" provision (a provision designed to keep target businesses from "shopping" around for transactions with other companies or investors on terms more favorable to such target businesses) with respect to a particular proposed business combination, although we do not have any current intention to do so. If we entered into an agreement where we paid for the right to receive exclusivity from a target business, the amount that would be used as a down payment or to fund a "no-shop" provision would be determined based on the terms of the specific business combination and the amount of our available funds at the time. Our forfeiture of such funds (whether as a result of our breach or otherwise) could result in our not having sufficient funds to continue searching for, or conducting due diligence with respect to, prospective target businesses.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds following this offering 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.

Related Party Transactions

On April 3, 2021, our sponsor paid $25,000 to cover certain of our offering and formation costs in exchange for the issuance of 7,187,500 founder shares to our sponsor, or approximately $0.003 per share. In November 2021, our sponsor surrendered an aggregate of 2,156,250 founder shares for no consideration, thereby reducing the aggregate number of founder shares outstanding to 5,031,250. On December 22, 2021 our sponsor surrendered an additional 31,250 upon the partial exercise of the underwriter's over-allotment option, thereby reducing the aggregate number of founder shares to 5,000,000 and resulting in an effective purchase price paid for the founder shares of approximately $0.005 per share. The purchase price of the founder shares was determined by dividing the amount of cash contributed to the company by the number of founder shares issued. Our initial shareholders collectively own 20% of our issued and outstanding shares.


                                       45



We have entered into a support services agreement pursuant to which we will also pay our sponsor a total of $15,000 per month for office space, administrative and support services. Upon completion of our initial business combination or our liquidation, we will cease paying these monthly fees.

Our sponsor, directors and officers, or any of their respective affiliates, will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with activities on our behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable business combinations. Our audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made by us to our sponsor, directors, officers or our or any of their respective affiliates and will determine which expenses and the amount of expenses that will be reimbursed. There is no cap or ceiling on the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such persons in connection with activities on our behalf.

Our sponsor agreed to loan us up to $300,000 under an unsecured promissory note to be used for a portion of the expenses of the offering. These loans were non-interest bearing, unsecured and were due at the earlier of December 31, 2021 and the closing of this offering. These loans were repaid upon completion of the offering. As of December 31, 2021, there were no borrowings under the promissory note.

In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial business combination, our sponsor or an affiliate of our sponsor or certain of our directors and officers may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete our initial business combination, we may repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the trust account released to us. Otherwise, such loans may be repaid only out of funds held outside the trust account. 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 to repay such loaned amounts. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants issued to our sponsor. The terms of such loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. We do not expect to seek loans from parties other than our sponsor or an affiliate of our sponsor as we do not believe third parties will be willing to loan such funds and provide a waiver against any and all rights to seek access to funds in our trust account.

Our sponsor purchased an aggregate of 10,000,000 private placement warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The private placement warrants are identical to the warrants sold as part of the units in the offering except that: (1) the private placement warrants will not be redeemable by us; (2) the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the private placement warrants may be subject to certain transfer restrictions contained in the letter agreement by and among the company, the sponsor and any other parties thereto, as amended from time to time; (3) the private placement warrants may be exercised by the holders on a cashless basis; and (4) the holders of private placement warrants (including the ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of such warrants) are entitled to registration rights.

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement that we entered into with our initial shareholders prior to the closing of the offering, we may be required to register certain securities for sale under the Securities Act. These holders, and holders of warrants issued upon conversion of working capital loans, if any, are entitled under the registration rights agreement to make up to three demands that we register certain of our securities held by them for sale under the Securities Act and to have the securities covered thereby registered for resale pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. In addition, these holders have the right to include their securities in other registration statements filed by us. However, the registration rights agreement provides that we will not be required to effect or permit any registration or cause any registration statement to become effective until the securities covered thereby are released from their lock-up restrictions, as described herein. We will bear the costs and expenses of filing any such registration statements. See "Principal Shareholders - Registration Rights."

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements; Commitments and Contractual Obligations; Annual Results

As of December 31, 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. No unaudited quarterly operating data is included in this prospectus as we have conducted no operations to date.

JOBS Act

On April 5, 2012, the JOBS Act was signed into law. The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We will qualify as an "emerging growth company" and under the JOBS Act will be allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As a result, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.


                                       46



Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an "emerging growth company," we choose to rely on such exemptions we may not be required to, among other things: (1) provide an auditor's attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act; (2) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act; (3) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor's report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis); and (4) disclose certain executive compensation-related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the Chief Executive Officer's compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of this offering or until we are no longer an "emerging growth company," whichever is earlier.
