Item 8.01. Other Events
As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated September 13, 2021 (“Current Report”), Pacifico Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 5,000,000 units (the “Units”) on September 16, 2021. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock (“Common Stock”), and one right to receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share of Common Stock upon the consummation of an initial business combination. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $50,000,000. The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 750,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any.
As also previously disclosed in the Current Report, simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 281,250 units (the “Private Units”) at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit, generating total proceeds of $2,812,500.
Subsequently, on September 20, 2021, the underwriter fully exercised the option and the closing of the issuance and sale of the additional Units occurred on September 22, 2021. The total aggregate issuance by the Company of 750,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit resulted in total gross proceeds of $7,500,000. On September 22, 2021, simultaneously with the sale of the over-allotment Units, the company consummated the private sale of an additional 26,250 Private Units, generating gross proceeds of $262,500.
A total of $58,075,000 of the net proceeds from the sale of Units in the initial public offering (including the over-allotment option units) and the Private Placements on September 16, 2021 and September 22, 2021, were placed in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public shareholders. Included with this report as Exhibit 99.1 is a pro-forma balance sheet reflecting the exercise of the over-allotment option. As of September 22, 2021, 7,495,000 shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value, were issued and outstanding.
The Private Units are identical to the Units sold in the IPO. However, the holders of the Private Units have agreed to certain restrictions on the Private Units, as described in the Registration Statement. Additionally, the holders of the Private Units agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Private Units or underlying securities (except in limited circumstances, as described in the Registration Statement) until the completion of the Company’s initial business combination. The holders were granted certain demand and piggyback registration rights in connection with the Private Units.
The Private Units were issued pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as the transactions did not involve a public offering.
