Substantially concurrently with the consummation of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of 7,175,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, to FSSC Sponsor LLC, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $7,175,000.

A total of $258,750,000, comprised of $253,575,000 of the proceeds from the IPO, including approximately $9,056,250 of the underwriters’ deferred discount, and $5,175,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, were placed in a trust account maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee.  An audited balance sheet as of January 29, 2021 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.
