Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

On October 29, 2020, Mallard Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 11,000,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”) and one redeemable warrant (a “Warrant”) entitling the holder to purchase one-half share of Common Stock for $11.50 per whole share. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $110,000,000. The Company granted the underwriters in the IPO, a 45-day option to purchase up to 1,650,000 additional Units solely to cover over-allotments, if any.

 

On October 29, 2020, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 10,000,000 Warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to Mallard Founders Holdings, LLC (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds to the Company of $5,000,000.

 

A total of $111,100,000 (which amount includes $3,850,000 of the underwriter’s deferred discount), representing $10.10 per Unit sold in the IPO, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee.

 

An audited balance sheet as of October 29, 2020 reflecting receipt of the proceeds upon consummation of the IPO and the Private Placement has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
