NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND GOING CONCERN

Artisan Acquisition Corp. (the "Company" or "Artisan") is a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on February 2, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”). The Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination. The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021 relates to the Company's formation, the initial public offering ("Initial Public Offering"), which is described below and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of a Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on May 13, 2021. On May 18, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 30,000,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units sold, the “Public Shares”), at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $300,000,000, which is discussed in Note 3.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 5,333,333 warrants (the "Private Placement Warrants") at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to Artisan LLC (the "Sponsor"), generating gross proceeds of $8,000,000, which is discussed in Note 4.

The Company had granted the underwriters in the Initial Public Offering (the “Underwriters”) a 45-day option to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any. On May 25, 2021, the Underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 3,934,235 Units (the “Over-Allotment Units”), generating gross proceeds of $39,342,350.

Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 524,565 additional Private Placement Warrants at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $786,847.

Upon closing of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants and the Over-Allotment Shares, a total of $339,342,350 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the exercise of the over-allotment option and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”), invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with maturities of 185 days or less, or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund meeting the conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the funds in the Trust Account to the Company’s shareholders, as described below.

ARTISAN ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete a Business Combination with one or more target businesses that together have an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the value of the Trust Account (as defined below) (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on income earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into an initial Business Combination. The Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”). Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering, management has agreed that an amount equal to at least $10.00 per Unit sold in the Initial Public Offering, including the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, will be held in a trust account (“Trust Account”), located in the United States and invested only in U.S. government treasury obligations with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act, which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the funds held in the Trust Account, as described below.

The Company will provide its holders of the outstanding Public Shares (the “public shareholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a shareholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The public shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (initially anticipated to be $10.00 per Public Share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations). There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Public Shares subject to redemption will be recorded at redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity ("ASC 480").

The Company will proceed with a Business Combination only if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 either prior to or upon such consummation of a Business Combination and, if the Company seeks shareholder approval, a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (the “Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, shareholder approval of the transaction is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or other reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor has agreed to vote its Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of approving a Business Combination. Additionally, each public shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction or don't vote at all.

Notwithstanding the above, if the Company seeks shareholder approval of a Business Combination and it does not conduct redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that a public shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% or more of the Public Shares, without the prior consent of the Company.

ARTISAN ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Sponsor has agreed to waive (i) redemption rights with respect to its Founder Shares and Public Shares held by it in connection with the completion of a Business Combination, (ii) redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares and Public Shares held by it in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to allow redemption in connection with an initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering or with respect to any other material provision relating to shareholders’ rights and (iii) rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares held if the Company fails to complete an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering. However, if the sponsor acquires Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, such Public Shares will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering.

The Company will have until 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering to complete a Business Combination (the “Combination Period”). If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up; (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but no more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay income taxes, if any (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses) divided by the number of the then-outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any); and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining shareholders and board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s warrants, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period.

The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the assets remaining available for distribution will be less than the Initial Public Offering price per Unit ($10.00).

In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the sponsor has agreed that it will be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company (other than the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), or a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amounts in the Trust Account to below the lesser of (i) $10.00 per Public Share and (ii) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account if less than $10.00 per Public Share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, in each case net of the interest that may be withdrawn to pay tax obligations, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims by a third party or prospective target business that executed a waiver of any and all rights to seek access to the Trust Account nor will it apply to any claims under the indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (other than the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

Business Combination Agreement

On September 15, 2021, (i) the Company, (ii) Prenetics Global Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“PubCo”), (iii) AAC Merger Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (“Merger Sub 1”), (iv) PGL Merger Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (“Merger Sub 2,” and together with Merger Sub 1 the “Merger Subs”) and (v) Prenetics Group Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Prenetics”), entered into a Business Combination Agreement (as it may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “BCA”).

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The BCA and the transaction contemplated thereby were unanimously approved by the board of directors of each of Artisan and Prenetics.

The BCA provides for, among other things, the following transactions: (i) Artisan will merge with and into Merger Sub 1, with Merger Sub 1 being the surviving entity in the merger, and, after giving effect to such merger, continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (the “Initial Merger”), and (ii) following the Initial Merger, Merger Sub 2 will merge with and into Prenetics, with Prenetics being the surviving entity in the merger, and, after giving effect to such merger, continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (the “Acquisition Merger”). The Initial Merger, the Acquisition Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the BCA are hereinafter referred to as the “Business Combination.”

The Business Combination is subject to customary closing conditions, including, without limitation, the required approval by Artisan’s shareholders.

Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the BCA, in connection with the Initial Merger, (i) every issued and outstanding Class A and Class B ordinary share of Artisan will automatically be cancelled in exchange for one PubCo Class A ordinary share and (ii) each issued and outstanding warrant of Artisan will cease to exist and be assumed by PubCo and converted automatically into a warrant to purchase one PubCo Class A ordinary share on substantially the same terms (the “Warrants”).

Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the BCA, in connection with the Acquisition Merger, (i) (a) each issued and outstanding ordinary share and preferred share in Prenetics (other than any shares of Prenetics held by Mr. Danny Yeung) immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be cancelled in exchange for such number of PubCo Class A ordinary shares that is equal to the Exchange Ratio (as described below and more fully defined in the BCA) and (b) each issued and outstanding ordinary share and preferred share in Prenetics held by Mr. Danny Yeung immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be cancelled in exchange for such number of PubCo Class B ordinary shares that is equal to the Exchange Ratio; and (ii) (a) each Prenetics restricted share unit (other than any Prenetics restricted share unit held by Mr. Danny Yeung) outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be assumed by PubCo and converted into an award of PubCo restricted share units representing the right to receive PubCo Class A Ordinary Shares under the Incentive Equity Plan (as defined below) equal to the product of (x) the number of Prenetics ordinary shares subject to such Prenetics restricted share unit and (y) the Exchange Ratio and (b) each Prenetics restricted share unit held by Mr. Danny Yeung outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be assumed by PubCo and converted into an award of PubCo restricted share units representing the right to receive PubCo Class B Ordinary Shares under the Incentive Equity Plan equal to the product of (x) the number of Prenetics ordinary shares subject to such Prenetics restricted share unit and (y) the Exchange Ratio.

The “Exchange Ratio” is a number determined by dividing the Price per Share (as described below and more fully defined in the BCA) by $10. “Price per Share” is defined in the BCA as the amount equal to $1,150,000,000 divided by such amount equal to (a) the aggregate number of Prenetics shares (i) that are issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of Acquisition Merger and (ii) that are issuable upon the exercise of all Prenetics restricted share units, options, warrants, convertible notes and other equity securities of Prenetics that are issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of Acquisition Merger minus (b) the Prenetics shares held by Prenetics or any of its subsidiaries (if applicable) as treasury shares.

PIPE Financing (Private Placement)

Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, certain investors (the “PIPE Investors”) entered into share subscription agreements (each, a “PIPE Subscription Agreement”), pursuant to which the PIPE Investors agreed to subscribe for and purchase PubCo Class A ordinary shares at $10.00 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $60,000,000 (the “PIPE Investment”). Pursuant the PIPE Subscription Agreements, the obligations of the parties to consummate the PIPE Investment are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions of the respective parties, including, among others, (i) all conditions precedent under the BCA having been satisfied or waived (other than those to be satisfied at the closing of the Business Combination), (ii) the accuracy of representations and warranties in all material respects and (iii) material compliance with covenants.

On March 1, 2021, the Company entered into forward purchase agreements (the "Forward Purchase Agreements") pursuant to which Aspex Master Fund (“Aspex”) and Pacific Alliance Asia Opportunity Fund L.P. (“PAG”) (referred to collectively as the “Anchor Investors”) have subscribed to purchase from the Company 6,000,000 Class A ordinary shares (the “Forward Purchase Shares”), plus an aggregate of 1,500,000 redeemable warrants to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 each (the “Forward Purchase Warrants”), for an aggregate amount of up to $60,000,000, or $10.00 per Class A ordinary share, in a private placement that will close concurrently with the closing of the Company’s initial Business Combination.

Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, the Anchor Investors entered into deeds of novation and amendment (each a “Deed of Novation and Amendment”), pursuant to which the Anchor Investors have agreed to replace their commitments to purchase the Class A ordinary shares and warrants of Artisan under the Forward Purchase Agreements with the commitment to purchase an aggregate of 6,000,000 PubCo Class A ordinary shares plus 1,500,000 redeemable PubCo warrants, for a purchase price of $10.00 per PubCo Class A ordinary share, as applicable, or $60,000,000 in the aggregate, in a private placement to close immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition Merger.

Each of the Sponsor and the independent directors of Artisan has also agreed, within certain periods of time from the closing of the Business Combination and subject to certain exceptions, not to sell, transfer, tender, grant, pledge, assign or otherwise dispose of (including by gift, tender or exchange offer, merger or operation of law), encumber, hedge or utilize a derivative to transfer the economic interest in any of the PubCo Class A ordinary shares and PubCo Warrants (as applicable) acquired in connection with the Initial Merger and PubCo Class A ordinary shares received upon the exercise of any PubCo warrants (as applicable).

Registration Rights Agreement

Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, Artisan, PubCo, the Sponsor and certain securityholders of Prenetics (the “Prenetics Holders”) entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, PubCo agreed to undertake certain resale shelf registration obligations in accordance with the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and the Sponsor and the Prenetics Holders have been granted customary demand and piggyback registration rights.

Shareholder Support Agreements

Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, Artisan, PubCo, Prenetics and certain shareholders of Prenetics entered into shareholder support agreements and deeds (the “Shareholder Support Agreements”), pursuant to which each such shareholder of Prenetics has agreed to, among other things, (i) vote all Prenetics shares held by such shareholder in favor of the transactions contemplated by the BCA and the other transaction documents, (ii) vote against any proposals that would or would be reasonably likely to in any material respect impede the transactions contemplated by the BCA, (iii) not transfer any share of Prenetics until termination of the Shareholder Support Agreement, and (iv) within certain periods of time from the closing of the Business Combination and subject to certain exceptions, not sell, transfer, tender, grant, pledge, assign or otherwise dispose of (including by gift, tender or exchange offer, merger or operation of law), encumber, hedge or utilize a derivative to transfer the economic interest in any of the shares of PubCo issued in connection with the Acquisition Merger or upon settlement of the restricted share units of PubCo.

Assignment, Assumption and Amendment Agreement

Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, Artisan, PubCo and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“Continental”) entered into an amendment (the “Assignment, Assumption and Amendment Agreement”) to that certain warrant agreement, dated May 13, 2021, by and between Artisan and Continental (the “Existing Warrant Agreement”), to be effective upon closing pursuant to which, among other things, Artisan will agree to assign all of its right, title and interest in the Existing Warrant Agreement to PubCo.

The foregoing descriptions of the Business Combination Agreement and ancillary agreements are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the agreements, copies of which were filed with the SEC on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated September 15, 2021 and which are incorporated herein by reference.

Going Concern Consideration

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $227,157 in cash held outside the Trust Account and a working capital deficit of $1,054,228. The Company has incurred and expects to continue to incur significant costs in pursuit of its acquisition plans. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of time within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. Management plans to address this uncertainty through the Business Combination as discussed above. There is no assurance that the Company’s plans to consummate the Business Combination will be successful or successful within the Combination Period. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Risks and Uncertainties

Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company's financial position, results of its operations, and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company are presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s final prospectus for its Initial Public Offering as filed with the SEC on May 17, 2021, as well as the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K, as filed with the SEC on May 19, 2021, May 25, 2021, and June 1, 2021. The interim results for the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021 or for any future periods.

Emerging Growth Company

The Company is an "emerging growth company," as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the "JOBS Act"), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company's financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period.

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021.

Investments Held in Trust Account

At September 30, 2021, the $339,362,925 held in the Trust Account was held in money market funds, which are invested in U.S. Treasury securities. The investments held in the Trust Account are presented at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in unrealized gains on investments held in trust account on the accompanying condensed statements of operations. The estimated fair value of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

All of the 33,934,235 Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and subsequent partial exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment option contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with the Business Combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in ASC 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Class A ordinary shares have been classified outside of permanent equity.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid in capital and accumulated deficit.

As of September 30, 2021, the Class A ordinary shares reflected in the condensed balance sheet are reconciled in the following table:

Warrant Liabilities

The Company accounts for warrants as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the warrant’s specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480 and ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the warrants are indexed to the Company’s own common stock, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of warrant issuance and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the warrants are outstanding.

Table of Contents

ARTISAN ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For issued or modified warrants that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded as a component of additional paid-in capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified warrants that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of the warrants are recognized as a non-cash gain or loss on the statements of operations. The fair value of the Public Warrants (as defined in Note 3) was estimated using a Black-Scholes Option Pricing Method - Barrier Option and the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants was estimated using a Modified Black-Scholes Option Pricing Method (see Note 9).

Offering Costs associated with the Initial Public Offering

The Company complies with the requirements of ASC 340-10-S99-1 and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A - Expenses of Offering. Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs directly attributable to the issuance of an equity contract to be classified in equity are recorded as a reduction in equity. Offering costs for equity contracts that are classified as assets and liabilities are expensed immediately. The Company incurred offering costs amounting to $19,235,879 as a result of the Initial Public Offering (consisting of $6,786,847 of underwriting fees, $11,876,982 of deferred underwriting fees and $572,050 of other offering costs). The Company recorded $18,701,823 of offering costs as a reduction of temporary equity in connection with the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units. The Company immediately expensed $534,056 of offering costs in connection with the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants that were classified as liabilities.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740 Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized.

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. Based on the Company’s evaluation, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s financial statements. Since the Company was incorporated on February 2, 2021, the evaluation was performed for the upcoming 2021 tax year which will be the only period subject to examination.

The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of September 30, 2021. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is considered an exempted Cayman Islands Company and is presently not subject to income taxes or income tax filing requirements in the Cayman Islands or the United States. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s financial statements.

Net Loss Per Ordinary Share

Net loss per ordinary share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and private placement to purchase an aggregate of 17,169,310 shares in the calculation of diluted net loss per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company applies ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and clarifies the definition of fair value within that framework. ASC 820 defines fair value as an exit price, which is the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the Company’s principal or most advantageous market in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The fair value hierarchy established in ASC 820 generally requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. Observable inputs reflect the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs reflect the entity’s own assumptions based on market data and the entity’s judgments about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are to be developed based on the best information available in the circumstances.

The carrying amounts reflected in the balance sheet for current assets and current liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.

Level 1 — Assets and liabilities with unadjusted, quoted prices listed on active market exchanges. Inputs to the fair value measurement are observable inputs, such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are determined using prices for recently traded assets and liabilities with similar underlying terms, as well as direct or indirect observable inputs, such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

Level 3 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are unobservable inputs, such as estimates, assumptions, and valuation techniques when little or no market data exists for the assets or liabilities.

See Note 9 for additional information on assets and liabilities measured at fair value.

Recent Accounting Standards

In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity's Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) ("ASU 2020-06") to simplify accounting for certain financial instruments. ASU 2020-06 eliminates the current models that require separation of beneficial conversion and cash conversion features from convertible instruments and simplifies the derivative scope exception guidance pertaining to equity classification of contracts in an entity's own equity. The new standard also introduces additional disclosures for convertible debt and freestanding instruments that are indexed to and settled in an entity's own equity. ASU 2020-06 amends the diluted earnings per share guidance, including the requirement to use the if-converted method for all convertible instruments. ASU 2020-06 is effective January 1, 2022 and should be applied on a full or modified retrospective basis, with early adoption permitted beginning on January 1, 2021. The Company is currently assessing the impact, if any, that ASU 2020-06 would have on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company's financial statements.

NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on May 13, 2021. On May 18, 2021, the Company completed its Initial Public Offering of 30,000,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $300,000,000. Each Unit consisted of one Class A ordinary share, $0.0001 par value, and one-third of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per whole share (see Note 7).

On May 25, 2021, the Underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 3,934,235 Over-Allotment Units, generating gross proceeds of $39,342,350.

NOTE 4. PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 5,333,333 warrants at a price of $1.50 per warrant in a private placement (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $8,000,000. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 524,565 additional Private Placement Warrants at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $786,847.

NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares

On February 4, 2021, the Sponsor made a capital contribution of an aggregate of $25,000 to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of 8,625,000 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”). On March 1, 2021, the Company effected a share capitalization pursuant to which an additional 1,500,000 Founder Shares were issued for no consideration, resulting in there being 10,125,000 Class B ordinary shares outstanding. All share and per-share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share capitalization. The Founder Shares include an aggregate of up to 1,125,000 Class B ordinary shares subject to forfeiture by the sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full, so that the sponsor will own, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering plus 6,000,000 Class A ordinary shares to be sold pursuant to the forward purchase agreements (see Note 6). On May 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 3,934,235 Units, resulting in the subsequent forfeiture of 141,441 Class B ordinary shares. On September 14, 2021, the Sponsor surrendered 1 Class B ordinary share for no consideration.

Table of Contents

ARTISAN ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Sponsor has agreed that, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned, or sold until the earlier of (i) one year after the completion of a Business Combination or (ii) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction after an initial Business Combination that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if (1) the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub-divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after an initial Business Combination or (2) if the Company consummates a transaction after an initial Business Combination which results in the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their shares for cash, securities or other property, the Founder Shares will be released from the lock-up.

In connection with the Forward Purchase Agreements (see Note 1), on March 1, 2021, the Sponsor transferred 375,000 Class B ordinary shares (an aggregate of 750,000 Class B ordinary shares) to each of the Anchor Investors for no cash consideration. The Class B ordinary shares are subject to forfeiture by the Forward Purchase Investors to the extent that the Forward Purchase Investors do not pay any portion of the forward purchase agreement purchase price.

The excess of the fair value of the Founder Shares was determined to be an offering cost of a Business Combination in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A. The Founders Shares are subject to forfeiture subject to a performance condition (i.e., the Anchor Investors purchasing Forward Purchase Shares and Forward Purchase Warrants upon consummation of a Business Combination). Offering costs related to the Founders Shares are recognized only when the performance condition is probable of occurrence. As of September 30, 2021, the Company determined that a Business Combination is not considered probable, and, therefore, no offering costs have been recognized. Offering costs would be recognized at the date a Business Combination is considered probable (i.e., upon consummation of a Business Combination) in an amount equal to the number of Founders Shares that ultimately vest multiplied times the grant date fair value per share (unless subsequently modified). The offering cost will be allocated to the Forward Purchase Shares and Forward Purchase Warrants based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received. Offering costs allocated to derivative warrant liabilities will be expensed as incurred in the statement of operations. Offering costs allocated to the Forward Purchase Shares will be charged to shareholder’s equity upon the completion of a Business Combination.

On March 8, 2021, the Sponsor sold 25,000 of its Class B ordinary shares of the Company to each of its four independent director nominees (the “Directors”) (or 100,000 Class B ordinary shares in total) for cash consideration of approximately $0.002 per share (the “Purchase Price”). These awards are subject to ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”).

Under ASC 718, stock-based compensation associated with equity-classified awards is measured at fair value upon the grant date. The Founders Shares were granted subject to a performance condition (i.e., the occurrence of a Business Combination). Compensation expense related to the Founders Shares is recognized only when the performance condition is probable of occurrence. Stock-based compensation would be recognized at the date a Business Combination is considered probable (i.e., upon consummation of a Business Combination) in an amount equal to the number of Founders Shares that ultimately vest multiplied times the grant date fair value per share (unless subsequently modified) less the amount initially received for the purchase of the Founders Shares.

Promissory Notes — Related Party

On February 4, 2021, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company could borrow up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering. The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and was payable on the earlier of September 30, 2021 or the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. On July 26, 2021, the Company repaid the outstanding balance under the Promissory Note of $1,150.

On August 16, 2021, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Second Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $300,000. The Second Promissory Note is non-interest bearing and payable upon the consummation of a Business Combination. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had not borrowed any amount under the Second Promissory Note.

Due to Related Party

As of September 30, 2021, an affiliate of the Sponsor has paid $124,740 to cover certain operating and offering costs on behalf of the Company. On July 26, 2021, the Company repaid the outstanding balance due to the affiliate of the Sponsor.

Administrative Support Agreement

The Company entered into an agreement, commencing on May 13, 2021, to pay the Sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, utilities, secretarial and administrative support services. Upon the completion of an initial Business Combination or liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. Under this agreement, $50,000 of expenses were incurred during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. As of September 30, 2021, $50,000 related to this agreement is recorded in accrued expenses - related party on the condensed balance sheet.

Related Party Loans

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor or certain of the Company’s directors and officer may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into Private Placement Warrants of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of the lender.

NOTE 6. COMMITMENTS

Registration Rights

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on May 13, 2021, the holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans) have registration and shareholder rights to require the Company to register a sale of any of its securities held by them. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of an initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriters Agreement

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the prospectus to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments. On May 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,934,235 Units at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating additional gross proceeds of $39,342,350 to the Company.

The underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of $0.20 per Unit, or $6,786,847 in the aggregate upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the partial exercise of the over-allotment option. In addition, the underwriters will be entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $11,876,982 in the aggregate. Subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement, (i) the deferred fee will be placed in the Trust Account and released to the underwriters only upon the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the deferred fee will be waived by the underwriters in the event that the Company does not complete a Business Combination.

NOTE 7. WARRANTS

Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination or (b) one year from the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

The Company will not be obligated to deliver any Class A ordinary shares pursuant to the exercise of a warrant and will have no obligation to settle such warrant exercise unless a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the Class A ordinary shares underlying the warrants is then effective and a prospectus relating thereto is current, subject to the Company satisfying its obligations described below with respect to registration, or a valid exemption from registration is available. No warrant will be exercisable and the Company will not be obligated to issue a Class A ordinary share upon exercise of a warrant unless the Class A ordinary share issuable upon such warrant exercise has been registered, qualified or deemed to be exempt under the securities laws of the state of residence of the registered holder of the warrants.

The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 20 business days after the closing of an initial Business Combination, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants, and the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the same to become effective within 60 business days after the closing of an initial Business Combination, and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares until the warrants expire or are redeemed, as specified in the warrant agreement; provided that, if the Class A ordinary shares are at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and, in the event the Company so elects, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, but the Company will use its commercially reasonably efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available.

Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00. Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants for redemption (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants):

in whole and not in part;
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
upon not less than 30 days' prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder; and
if, and only if, the reported closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within a 30 trading day period ending three trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

The Company will not redeem the warrants as described above unless a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares is available throughout the 30-day redemption period. If and when the warrants become redeemable by the Company, the Company may exercise its redemption right even if the Company is unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.

Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00. Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the warrants:

in whole and not in part;

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

at a price of $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares determined by the redemption date and the fair market value of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares;
if, and only if, the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00 per Public Share (as adjusted for share sub divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), for any 20 trading days within a 30 trading day period ending three trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders; and
if the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares for any 20 trading days within a 30 trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), the Private Placement Warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants.

The value of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares shall mean the volume weighted average price of the Class A ordinary shares during the 10 trading days immediately following the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of warrants. The Company will provide its warrant holders with the final fair market value no later than one business day after the 10 trading day period described above ends. In no event will the warrants be exercisable on a cashless basis in connection with this redemption feature for more than 0.361 Class A ordinary shares per warrant (subject to adjustment).

In addition, if (i) the Company issues additional Class A ordinary shares or equity linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of an initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per ordinary share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or its affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (ii) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of an initial Business Combination on the date of the consummation of an initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (iii) the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares during the 20 trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates an initial Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price described above under “—Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00” and “—Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $10.00 per share redemption trigger price described above under “—Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants will be exercisable on a cashless basis and be non redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

As of September 30, 2021, there were 11,311,412 Public Warrants and 5,857,898 Private Placement Warrants outstanding. The Company accounts for the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40. Such guidance provides that because the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, each warrant must be recorded as a liability.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments required that the Company record the warrants as derivative liabilities at fair value upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Public Warrants were allocated a portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the Units equal to their fair value. The warrant liabilities are subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date. With each such re-measurement, the warrant liabilities are adjusted to current fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company will reassess the classification at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the warrants will be reclassified as of the date of the event that causes the reclassification.

NOTE 8. SHAREHOLDERS' EQUITY

Preference shares— The Company is authorized to issue 3,000,000 preference shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. As of September 30, 2021, there were no preference shares issued or outstanding.

Class A ordinary shares— The Company is authorized to issue 300,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of September 30, 2021, there were 33,934,235 Class A ordinary shares issued and outstanding, including 33,934,235 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption.

Class B ordinary shares— The Company is authorized to issue 30,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of Class B ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of September 30, 2021, there were 9,983,558 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding.

Ordinary shareholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by shareholders. Except as described below, holders of Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s shareholders except as required by law. Prior to an initial Business Combination, only holders of the Founder Shares will have the right to vote on the election of directors. Holders of the Public Shares will not be entitled to vote on the appointment of directors during such time.

The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares (which such Class A ordinary shares delivered upon conversion will not have redemption rights or be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company does not consummate an initial Business Combination) at the time of an initial Business Combination or earlier at the option of the holders thereof at a ratio such that the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the sum of (i) the total number of ordinary shares issued and outstanding upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering, the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, excluding any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, deemed issued or to be issued to any seller in the initial Business Combination and any Private Placement Warrants issued to the sponsor, its affiliates or any member of the Company’s management team upon conversion of working capital loans. In no event will the Class B ordinary shares convert into Class A ordinary shares at a rate of less than one-to-one.

The Company utilized a Black-Scholes Option Pricing Method - Barrier Option for the initial valuation of the Public Warrants. The subsequent measurement of the Public Warrants as of September 30, 2021 is classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market under the ticker ARTAW. The quoted price of the Public Warrants was $1.14 per warrant as of September 30, 2021.

The Company utilizes a Modified Black-Scholes Option Pricing Method to value the Private Placement Warrants at each reporting period, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations. Inherent in a binomial options pricing model are assumptions related to expected share-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The expected volatility as of the date of the Initial Public Offering and as of June 30, 2021 was derived from observable public warrant pricing on comparable ‘blank-check’ companies without an identified target. The expected volatility as of September 30, 2021 was implied from the Company’s own Public Warrant pricing. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates to remain at zero. As of September 30, 2021 the Private Placement Warrants are classified as Level 2 due to the use of an observable market quote for a similar asset in an active market.

The estimated fair value of the derivative liability for the forward purchase agreement is determined based on the value of the ordinary shares and warrants as compared to the purchase price adjusted for the probability of a Business Combination. As of September 30, 2021, the derivative liability for the forward purchase agreement is classified as Level 3 due to the use of unobservable inputs.

Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting periods. The estimated fair value of the Public Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 fair value measurement as of September 30, 2021 after the Public Warrants were separately listed and traded. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 2 fair value measurement as of September 30, 2021 due to the use of an observable market quote for a similar asset in an active market.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on February 2, 2021 as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities. We have not selected any business combination target and we have not, nor has anyone on our behalf, initiated any substantive discussions, directly or indirectly, with any business combination target. We intend to effectuate our initial business combination using cash from the proceeds of our initial public offering and the sale of the private placement warrants, the proceeds of the sale of our shares in connection with our initial business combination pursuant to the forward purchase agreements (or backstop agreements we may enter into or otherwise), shares issued to the owners of the target, debt issued to bank or other lenders or the owners of the target, or a combination of the foregoing or other sources.

Proposed Business Combination

On September 15, 2021, (i) Artisan Acquisition Corp., a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Artisan”), (ii) Prenetics Global Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“PubCo”), (iii) AAC Merger Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (“Merger Sub 1”), (iv) PGL Merger Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (“Merger Sub 2,” and together with Merger Sub 1 the “Merger Subs”) and (v) Prenetics Group Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Prenetics”) entered into a Business Combination Agreement (as it may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “BCA”).

The BCA and the transaction contemplated thereby were unanimously approved by the board of directors of each of Artisan and Prenetics.

24

The BCA provides for, among other things, the following transactions: (i) Artisan will merge with and into Merger Sub 1, with Merger Sub 1 being the surviving entity in the merger, and, after giving effect to such merger, continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (the “Initial Merger”), and (ii) following the Initial Merger, Merger Sub 2 will merge with and into Prenetics, with Prenetics being the surviving entity in the merger, and, after giving effect to such merger, continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of PubCo (the “Acquisition Merger”). The Initial Merger, the Acquisition Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the BCA are hereinafter referred to as the “Business Combination.”

The Business Combination

Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the BCA, in connection with the Initial Merger, (i) every issued and outstanding Class A and Class B ordinary share of Artisan will automatically be cancelled in exchange for one PubCo Class A ordinary share and (ii) each issued and outstanding warrant of Artisan will cease to exist and be assumed by PubCo and converted automatically into a warrant to purchase one PubCo Class A ordinary share on substantially the same terms (the “Warrants”).

Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the BCA, in connection with the Acquisition Merger, (i) (a) each issued and outstanding ordinary share and preferred share in Prenetics (other than any shares of Prenetics held by Mr. Danny Yeung) immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be cancelled in exchange for such number of PubCo Class A ordinary shares that is equal to the Exchange Ratio (as described below and more fully defined in the BCA) and (b) each issued and outstanding ordinary share and preferred share in Prenetics held by Mr. Danny Yeung immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be cancelled in exchange for such number of PubCo Class B ordinary shares that is equal to the Exchange Ratio; and (ii) (a) each Prenetics restricted share unit (other than any Prenetics restricted share unit held by Mr. Danny Yeung) outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be assumed by PubCo and converted into an award of PubCo restricted share units representing the right to receive PubCo Class A Ordinary Shares under the Incentive Equity Plan (as defined below) equal to the product of (x) the number of Prenetics ordinary shares subject to such Prenetics restricted share unit and (y) the Exchange Ratio and (b) each Prenetics restricted share unit held by Mr. Danny Yeung outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Acquisition Merger will automatically be assumed by PubCo and converted into an award of PubCo restricted share units representing the right to receive PubCo Class B Ordinary Shares under the Incentive Equity Plan equal to the product of (x) the number of Prenetics ordinary shares subject to such Prenetics restricted share unit and (y) the Exchange Ratio.

The “Exchange Ratio” is a number determined by dividing the Price per Share (as described below and more fully defined in the BCA) by $10. “Price per Share” is defined in the BCA as the amount equal to $1,150,000,000 divided by such amount equal to (a) the aggregate number of Prenetics shares (i) that are issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of Acquisition Merger and (ii) that are issuable upon the exercise of all Prenetics restricted share units, options, warrants, convertible notes and other equity securities of Prenetics that are issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of Acquisition Merger minus (b) the Prenetics shares held by Prenetics or any of its subsidiaries (if applicable) as treasury shares.

Holders of PubCo Class A ordinary shares will be entitled to one vote per share and holders of the PubCo Class B ordinary shares will be entitled to 20 votes per share. Each PubCo Class B ordinary share (x) is convertible into one PubCo Class A ordinary share at any time by the holder thereof, and (y) will automatically convert into one PubCo Class A ordinary share upon, among others and subject to certain limitations, the sale, transfer or other disposal by the holder thereof to any third party that is not a permitted transferee of such holder, in each case of the foregoing (x) and (y), subject to the terms and conditions of the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association of PubCo to be adopted and become effective immediately prior to the effective time of the Initial Merger (a form of which is attached to the BCA as an exhibit).

Representations and Warranties; Covenants

The BCA contains representations and warranties of the parties thereto that are customary for transactions of this nature, including with respect to, among other things: (i) organization, good standing and qualification; (ii) authorization; (iii) capitalization; (iv) consents; no conflicts; (v) financial statements; (vi) absence of certain changes; (vii) litigation; (viii) taxes; (ix) data protection; (x) compliance with laws (including with respect to permits and filings); (xi) material contracts; (xii) intellectual property; (xiii) labor and employee matters and (xiv) proxy/registration statement. The representations and warranties of the respective parties to the BCA will not survive the closing of the transaction.

25

Conditions to the Consummation of the Transaction

Consummation of the transactions contemplated by the BCA is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by the shareholders of Artisan and Prenetics. The BCA also contains other conditions, including, among others: (i) the accuracy of representations and warranties to various standards, from no materiality qualifier to a material adverse effect qualifier, (ii) the bringdown to closing of a representation that no material adverse effect has occurred (both for Artisan and Prenetics); (iii) material compliance with pre-closing covenants, (iv) the delivery of customary closing certificates, (v) the absence of a legal prohibition on consummating the transactions, (vi) PubCo’s listing application with Nasdaq being approved, (vii) Artisan having at least US$5,000,001 of net tangible assets remaining after redemption; and (viii) the cash proceeds from the trust account established for the purpose of holding the net proceeds of Artisan’s initial public offering, plus cash proceeds from the PIPE Investments (as defined below), plus cash proceeds under the Forward Purchase Agreements (as amended by the Deeds of Novation and Amendment), plus any amount raised pursuant to permitted equity financings prior to closing of the Acquisition Merger, minus the aggregate amount payable to SPAC shareholders exercising their redemption rights, in the aggregate equaling no less than $200,000,000.

PIPE Subscription Agreements

Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, certain investors (the “PIPE Investors”) entered into share subscription agreements (each, a “PIPE Subscription Agreement”), pursuant to which the PIPE Investors agreed to subscribe for and purchase PubCo Class A ordinary shares at $10.00 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $60,000,000 (the “PIPE Investment”). Pursuant the PIPE Subscription Agreements, the obligations of the parties to consummate the PIPE Investment are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions of the respective parties, including, among others, (i) all conditions precedent under the BCA having been satisfied or waived (other than those to be satisfied at the closing of the Business Combination), (ii) the accuracy of representations and warranties in all material respects and (iii) material compliance with covenants.

Deeds of Novation and Amendment to Forward Purchase Agreement

Prior to the initial public offering of Artisan, Artisan entered into forward purchase agreements (each a “Forward Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the anchor investors (each an “Anchor Investor”) agreed to purchase an aggregate of 6,000,000 Class A ordinary shares of Artisan plus 1,500,000 redeemable warrants of Artisan, for a purchase price of $10.00 per Class A ordinary share of Artisan, as applicable, or $60,000,000 in the aggregate, in a private placement to close immediately prior to the closing of the initial business combination of Artisan. Concurrently with the execution of the BCA, the Anchor Investors entered into deeds of novation and amendment (each a “Deed of Novation and Amendment”), pursuant to which the Anchor Investors have agreed to replace their Copies commitments to purchase the Class A ordinary shares and warrants of Artisan under the Forward Purchase Agreements with the commitment to purchase an aggregate of 6,000,000 PubCo Class A ordinary shares plus 1,500,000 redeemable PubCo warrants, for a purchase price of $10.00 per PubCo Class A ordinary share, as applicable, or $60,000,000 in the aggregate, in a private placement to close immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition Merger.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities for the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021 were organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for our initial public offering, described below, and, after our initial public offering, identifying a target company for a business combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our initial business combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on investments held in our trust account after the initial public offering. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $4,103,866, which resulted from formation and operating costs of $1,689,501, change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $741,308 and change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement derivative liability of $1,723,962, partially offset by the unrealized gain on investments held in the trust account of $50,905.

26

For the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $9,652,562, which resulted from formation and operating costs of $2,202,636, expensed offering costs associated with the initial public offering and private placement sale of warrants of $534,056, change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $5,435,602 and the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement derivative liability of $1,500,843, partially offset by the unrealized gain on investments held in the trust account of $20,575.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021, net cash used in operating activities was $1,246,636, which was due to our net loss of $9,652,562 and unrealized gain on investments held in the trust account of $20,575, partially offset by the change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $5,435,602, the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement derivative liability of $1,500,843, changes in working capital accounts of $956,000 and expensed offering costs of $534,056.

For the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021, net cash used in investing activities of $339,342,350 was the result of the amount of net proceeds from our initial public offering and the private placement sale of warrants being deposited to the trust account.

Net cash provided by financing activities for the for the period from February 2, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021 of $340,816,143 was comprised of $332,555,503 in proceeds from the issuance of units in our initial public offering net of underwriter's discount paid and $8,786,847 in proceeds from the issuance of warrants in a private placement to our Sponsor, partially offset by payment of $400,317 for offering costs associated with the initial public offering.

On May 18, 2021, we consummated our initial public offering of 30,000,000 units. Each unit consists of one share of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Public Shares") and one-third of one redeemable warrant of the Company (the "Public Warrants"), with each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary shares for $11.50 per share. The units were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $300,000,000. The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units solely to cover over-allotments.

Simultaneously with the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, we completed the private sale of 5,333,333 warrants to our Sponsor, at a purchase price of $1.50 per warrant (the "Private Placement Warrants"), generating gross proceeds of $8,000,000. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the initial public offering held in a trust account. If we do not complete our initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the initial public offering, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

On May 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 3,934,235 units, generating gross proceeds of $39,342,350.

Simultaneously with the closing of the exercise of the over-allotment option, we consummated the sale of 524,565 additional Private Placement Warrants at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $786,847.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the trust account (less taxes payable and deferred underwriting commissions), to complete our initial business combination. We may withdraw interest income (if any) to pay income taxes, if any. Our annual income tax obligations will depend on the amount of interest and other income earned on the amounts held in the trust account. We expect the interest income earned on the amount in the trust account (if any) will be sufficient to pay our income taxes. To the extent that our equity or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

Prior to the completion of our initial business combination and subsequent to our initial public offering, we will use the proceeds from the initial public offering held outside the trust account, as well as have access to certain funds from loans from our sponsor, its affiliates or members of our management team. We will use these funds primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a business combination.

We have incurred and expect to continue to incur significant costs in pursuit of our acquisition plans. We may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our initial business combination. In order to finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial business combination, our sponsor, its affiliates, our officer or certain to our directors may, but are not obliged to, loan to us funds as may be required. If we complete our initial business combination, we may repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the trust account released to us. In the event that our initial business combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the trust account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our trust account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants of the post-business combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. Prior to the completion of our initial business combination, we do not expect to seek loans from parties other than our sponsor, its affiliates or members of our management team as we do not believe third parties will be willing to loan such funds and provide a waiver against any and all rights to seek access to funds in our trust account.

Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing to complete our initial business combination, either because the transaction requires more cash than is available from the proceeds held in our trust account, or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon the completion of the business combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such business combination. If we have not consummated our initial business combination within the required time period because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the trust account.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of September 30, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Contractual Obligations

Registration Rights

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on May 13, 2021, the holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans) have registration and shareholder rights to require the Company to register a sale of any of its securities held by them. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain "piggy-back" registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of an initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Promissory Notes - Related Party

On February 4, 2021, we issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Promissory Note”), pursuant to which we could borrow up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to our initial public offering. The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and was payable on the earlier of September 30, 2021 or the consummation of our initial public offering. On July 26, 2021, we repaid the outstanding balance under the Promissory Note of $1,150.

28

On August 16, 2021, we issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Second Promissory Note”), pursuant to which we may borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $300,000. The Second Promissory Note is non-interest bearing and payable upon the consummation of our initial business combination. As of September 30, 2021, we had not borrowed any amount under the Second Promissory Note.

Underwriters Agreement

In connection with our initial public offering, the underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the prospectus to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional units to cover over-allotments. On May 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,934,235 units at an offering price of $10.00 per unit, generating additional gross proceeds of $39,342,350 to the Company.

The underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or $6,786,847 in the aggregate upon the closing of our initial public offering and the partial exercise of the over-allotment option. In addition, the underwriters will be entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per unit, or $11,876,982 in the aggregate. Subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement, (i) the deferred fee will be placed in the trust account and released to the underwriters only upon the completion of our initial business combination and (ii) the deferred fee will be waived by the underwriters in the event that we do not complete our initial business combination.

Forward Purchase Agreement

As more fully described in Note 1 and Note 5 in Item 1 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we entered into the Forward Purchase Agreements with the Sponsor and Anchor Investors, which were subsequently amended in connection with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of condensed financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting policies:

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

All of the 33,934,235 Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the units in our initial public offering and subsequent partial exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment option contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with our initial business combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in ASC 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Class A ordinary shares have been classified outside of permanent equity.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid in capital and accumulated deficit.

29

Warrant Liabilities

The Company accounts for warrants as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the warrant’s specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480 and ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the warrants are indexed to the Company’s own common stock, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of warrant issuance and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the warrants are outstanding.

For issued or modified warrants that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded as a component of additional paid-in capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified warrants that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of the warrants are recognized as a non-cash gain or loss on the statements of operations. The fair value of the Public Warrants was estimated using a Black-Scholes Option Pricing Method - Barrier Option and the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants was estimated using a Modified Black-Scholes Option Pricing Method.

Net Loss Per Ordinary Share

Net loss per ordinary share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in our initial public offering and private placement to purchase an aggregate of 17,169,310 shares in the calculation of diluted net loss per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events.

Recent Accounting Standards

In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2020-06, Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) (“ASU 2020-06”) to simplify accounting for certain financial instruments. ASU 2020-06 eliminates the current models that require separation of beneficial conversion and cash conversion features from convertible instruments and simplifies the derivative scope exception guidance pertaining to equity classification of contracts in an entity’s own equity. The new standard also introduces additional disclosures for convertible debt and freestanding instruments that are indexed to and settled in an entity’s own equity. ASU 2020-06 amends the diluted earnings per share guidance, including the requirement to use the if-converted method for all convertible instruments. ASU 2020-06 is effective January 1, 2022 and should be applied on a full or modified retrospective basis, with early adoption permitted beginning on January 1, 2021. The Company is currently assessing the impact, if any, that ASU 2020-06 would have on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company's financial statements.
