Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On August 27, 2021, Mallard Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) issued a promissory note (the “Note”) in the principal amount of up to $500,000 to Mallard Founders Holdings, LLC (the “Sponsor”). The Note was issued in connection with advances the Sponsor has made, and may make in the future, to the Company for working capital expenses. The Note bears no interest and is due and payable upon the earlier to occur of (i) the date on which the Company consummates its initial business combination and (ii) April 29, 2022. At the election of the Sponsor, all or a portion of the unpaid principal amount of the Note may be converted into warrants of the Company, each warrant exercisable for one-half of one share of common stock of the Company upon the consummation of an initial business combination (the “Conversion Warrants”), equal to: (x) the portion of the principal amount of the Note being converted, divided by (y) $0.50, rounded up to the nearest whole number of warrants. The Conversion Warrants are identical to the warrants issued by the Company to the Sponsor in a private placement in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. The Conversion Warrants and their underlying securities are entitled to the registration rights set forth in the Note.


The issuance of the Note was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Note, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
