Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 13, 2012, the registration statement (File No. 333-177280) (the “Registration Statement”) for Chart Acquisition Corp.’s (the “Company”) initial public offering (“IPO”) was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission. In connection therewith and the closing of the IPO, the Company entered into the following agreements previously filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement:
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On December 19, 2012, the Company consummated its IPO of 7,500,000 units (“Public Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, $0.0001 par value per (“Common Stock”), and one warrant (“Warrant”), to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share. The Public Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $75,000,000.
Simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 375,000 units (“Placement Units”) at a price of $10.00 per Placement Unit, generating total proceeds of $3,750,000. Each Placement Unit is comprised one share of Common Stock and one Warrant (“Placement Warrant”). The Placement Warrants included in the Placement Units, which were purchased by Chart Acquisition Group, LLC, Joseph R. Wright and Cowen Overseas Investment LP, are substantially similar to the Warrants underlying the Public Units, except that if held by the original holder or their permitted assigns, they (i) may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis, (ii) are not subject to being called for redemption and (iii) subject to certain limited exceptions, will be subject to transfer restrictions until 30 days following the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination. If the Placement Warrants are held by holders other than its initial holders, the Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by the holders on the same basis as the Warrants included in the Units sold in the IPO. In addition, so long as the Placement Warrants are held by Cowen Overseas Investment LP or any of its related persons under FINRA rules, the Placement Warrants will expire five years from the effective date of the Registration Statement, instead of five years from the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination. Any Placement Units or securities underlying the Placement Units held by Cowen Overseas or any of its “related persons” under the rules of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority may not be sold during this offering or sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, or hypothecated, or be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put, or call transaction that would result in the effective economic disposition of any such placement units, placement shares or placement warrants by any person for a period of 180 days immediately following December 13, 2012.
A total of $75,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement were placed in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders. Copies of the press releases issued by the Company announcing the effectiveness of the Registration Statement and consummation of the IPO are included as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Item 5.03. Amendments to Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On December 13, 2012, the Company filed its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation in the State of Delaware. The terms of the foregoing are set forth in the Registration Statement and are incorporated herein by reference.
