Item 8.01 Other Events
As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated August 13, 2020 (the “Current Report”), on August 18, 2020, Lionheart Acquisition Corporation II (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 20,000,000 units (the “Units”), each Unit consisting of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”) and one-half of one redeemable warrant (each, a “Warrant”), each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for $11.50 per share (subject to adjustment). The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, and the IPO generated gross proceeds of $200,000,000. Pursuant to an underwriting agreement, dated August 13, 2020, by and between the Company and Nomura Securities International, Inc. and Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., as representative of the several underwriters (the “Underwriters”), the Company granted the Underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 3,000,000 additional Units solely to cover over-allotments, if any.
As previously disclosed in the Current Report, simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company consummated a private placement (the “Private Placement”) with Lionheart Equities, LLC, the Company’s sponsor, and Nomura Securities International, Inc. of an aggregate of 650,000 units (the “Private Units”) at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $6,500,000.
Subsequently, on August 20, 2020, the Underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full, and the closing of the issuance and sale of the additional 3,000,000 Units (the “Over-Allotment Units”) occurred on August 24, 2020. The issuance by the Company of the Over-Allotment Units at a price of $10.00 per unit resulted in total gross proceeds of $30,000,000.
As of August 18, 2020, a total of $200,000,000 of the net proceeds from the sale of the Units in the IPO and the Private Placements were deposited in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders at JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee. Included with this report as Exhibit 99.1 is an audited balance sheet reflecting the receipt of the proceeds upon consummation of the IPO and the Private Placement.
