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

References to the "Company," "Pearl Holdings Acquisition Corp," "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 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.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "should," "could," "would," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "continue," or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. 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 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 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 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:




                                      17





  ? 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;




  ? 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 March 31, 2022 we had cash of $660,880 outside of our trust account and working capital of $933,537. 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 three months ended March 31, 2022, we had a net loss of $176,433 which consists of formation and operating costs amounting to $189,500 offset by interest income on cash held in Trust Account amounting to $13,067.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had a net loss of $21,038 which is mainly from formation and operating costs.

Our business activities as of March 31, 2022 consisted primarily of our formation and completing our IPO, and since the offering, 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 the 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 March 31, 2022, 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 $660,880 will not be held in the trust account.



                                      18




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 $660,880 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.

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 $350,000 for legal, accounting, due diligence, travel and other expenses in connection with any business combinations; $180,000 for legal and accounting fees related to regulatory reporting requirements; $129,500 for continued exchange listing fees; $240,000 for office space, administrative and support services; and approximately $25,000 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 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.

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 March 31, 2022 and the closing of the offering. These loans were repaid upon completion of the offering. As of March 31, 2022, 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.

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 unaudited condensed financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

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 unaudited condensed 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 the offering or until we are no longer an "emerging growth company," whichever is earlier.




Critical Accounting Policies



This management's discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our unaudited condensed financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these unaudited condensed financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in our unaudited condensed financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to fair value of financial instruments and accrued expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

We have identified the following critical accounting policies:

Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

We account for ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 480 "Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity." Ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable ordinary shares (including ordinary shares 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 our control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, ordinary shares are classified as shareholder's equity. Our ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that is considered to be outside of our control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events.



                                      21




Offering Costs Associated with IPO

We comply with the requirements of the ASC 340-10-S99-1 and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") Topic 5A- "Expenses of Offering". Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the IPO. Offering costs are charged against the carrying value of Class A shares and the Public Warrants based on the relative value of those instruments.




Net Loss Per Ordinary Share



We comply with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. We have two classes of shares, which are referred to as Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro-rata between the two classes of shares. Net loss per ordinary share is calculated by dividing the net loss by the weighted average ordinary shares outstanding for the respective period. Net loss for the period from inception to IPO was allocated fully to Class B ordinary shares. Diluted net loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders adjust the basic net loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders and the weighted-average ordinary shares outstanding for the potentially dilutive impact of outstanding warrants. However, because the warrants are anti-dilutive, diluted loss per ordinary share is the same as basic loss per ordinary share for the period presented.

With respect to the accretion of Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption and consistent with ASC Topic 480-10-S99-3A, we treated accretion in the same manner as a dividend, paid to the shareholder in the calculation of the net loss per ordinary share.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of March 31, 2022, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K.
