运营合规的加密货币交易平台Bullish交易所的科技公司Bullish和特殊目的收购公司Far Peak Acquisition Corporation (NYSE: FPAC)今天宣布，根据业务合并协议（以下简称“协议”），彼此同意把外部终止日期从2022年7月8日延长到2022年12月31日，以便促进业务合并的完成。Bullish向Far Peak支付了250万美元的延期费用，这笔钱Far Peak将用作工作资金。协议未作其他变化。
2021年7月8日，Far Peak和Bullish宣布达成业务合并协议，实现该目标之后，Bullish就能够在纽约证交所上市。业务合并受到各种条款和核准限制（包括获得Far Peak股东的同意），但预期将在2022年第三个季度完成。
除了初始协议，Far Peak和Bullish先前还同投资人达成了几个认购协议，根据这些协议，完成业务合并之后，投资人将购买3000万股Bullish普通股，总价款达3亿美元（即“PIPE投资”，或上市后私募投资）。根据协议条款，PIPE投资认购协议将在2022年7月8日终止。完成PIPE投资并不是完成业务合并的条件，因此，Bullish和Far Peak决定在没有PIPE投资的情况下完成业务合并。
Bullish, a technology company that operates the regulated cryptocurrency trading platform Bullish exchange, and Far Peak Acquisition Corporation (NYSE: FPAC), a special purpose acquisition company, today announced that they have agreed to extend the outside termination date under their Business Combination Agreement (the “Agreement”) from July 8, 2022 to December 31, 2022 in order to facilitate the completion of the business combination. Bullish has paid Far Peak an extension fee of $2.5 million, which Far Peak will use for working capital. No other changes were made to the Agreement.
As previously announced on July 8, 2021, Far Peak and Bullish entered into the Agreement providing for a business combination in which Bullish would become publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Subject to various approvals and conditions, including the approval by Far Peak’s shareholders, the business combination is expected to close in the third quarter of 2022.
Concurrently with entering into the original Agreement, Far Peak and Bullish had also entered into several Subscription Agreements with investors pursuant to which the investors had committed to purchase 30 million shares of Bullish ordinary shares upon completion of the business combination for an aggregate purchase price of $300 million (the “PIPE Investment”). Under their terms, the PIPE Investment Subscription Agreements will terminate on July 8, 2022. The consummation of the PIPE Investment is not a condition to the completion of the business combination; therefore, Bullish and Far Peak have determined to proceed with the business combination without the PIPE Investment.
