11. Warrants

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had 23,757,681 public warrants outstanding. Each public warrant entitles the registered holder to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, at any time commencing 30 days after the completion of the Business Combination. The public warrants will expire on the fifth anniversary of the Business Combination, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

The Company may call the public warrants for redemption:

in whole and not in part;
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
upon a minimum of 30 days prior written notice of redemption; and
if, and only if, the last reported closing price of the Common shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which Canoo sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

If the Company calls the public warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the public warrants to do so on a “cashless basis,” as described in the warrant agreement.

The exercise price and number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a share dividend, or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. However, the warrants will not be adjusted for issuance of common stock at a price below its exercise price.

On March 2, 2021, all of the private placement warrants were converted to public warrants. As noted in Note 3, the private placement warrants were accounted for as a liability until the private placement warrants were converted to public warrants.  Additionally, during the quarter ended March 31, 2021, 597,114 public warrants were exercised for total proceeds of $6.9 million.
