Form of Subscription Agreement for private placement
As of _________, 2021
Ladies and Gentlemen:
Alpine Acquisition Corporation (“Corporation”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of acquiring one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”), intends to register its securities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”), in connection with its initial public offering (“IPO”).
Alpine Acquisition Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”) hereby commits to purchase an aggregate of 4,925,000 warrants of the Corporation (“Initial Warrants”), each Initial Warrant to purchase one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Corporation at $1.00 per Initial Warrant, for an aggregate purchase price of $4,925,000 (the “Initial Purchase Price”). Additionally, if the underwriters in the IPO exercise their over-allotment option in full or part, the Sponsor further commits to purchase up to an additional 487,500 warrants (“Additional Warrants” and together with the Initial Warrants, the “Private Warrants”) at $1.00 per Additional Warrant for an aggregate purchase price of up to $487,500 (the “Over-Allotment Purchase Price” and together with the Initial Purchase Price, the “Purchase Price”). At least 24 hours prior to the effective date (“Effective Date”) of the Corporation’s registration statement filed in connection with the IPO (“Registration Statement”), the Sponsor will cause the full Purchase Price to be delivered to Graubard Miller, counsel for the Corporation (“Counsel”), by wire transfer as set forth in the instructions attached as Exhibit A to hold in a non-interest bearing account until the Corporation consummates the IPO.
The consummation of the purchase and issuance of the Initial Warrants and Additional Warrants (if any) shall occur simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO and over-allotment option, respectively. Simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, Counsel shall deposit the Initial Purchase Price, without interest or deduction, into the trust account (“Trust Account”) established by the Corporation for the benefit of the Corporation’s public shareholders as described in the Registration Statement. Simultaneously with the consummation of all or any part of the over-allotment option, Counsel shall deposit the pro-rata portion of the Over-Allotment Purchase Price, based upon the amount of the over-allotment option that has been exercised, without interest or deduction, into the Trust Account. Upon expiration of the over-allotment option, Counsel shall return any unused portion of the Over-Allotment Purchase Price to the Sponsor. If the Corporation does not complete the IPO within fourteen (14) days from the Effective Date, the Purchase Price (without interest or deduction) will be returned to the Sponsor.
Each of the Corporation and the Sponsor acknowledges and agrees that Counsel is serving hereunder solely as a convenience to the parties to facilitate the purchase of the Private Warrants and Counsel’s sole obligation under this letter agreement is to act with respect to holding and disbursing the Purchase Price for the Private Warrants as described above. Counsel shall not be liable to the Corporation or the Sponsor or any other person or entity in respect of any act or failure to act hereunder or otherwise in connection with performing its services hereunder unless Counsel has acted in a manner constituting gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Corporation and the Sponsor, jointly and severally, shall indemnify Counsel against any claim made against it (including reasonable attorney’s fees) by reason of it acting or failing to act in connection with this letter agreement except as a result of its gross negligence or willful misconduct. Counsel may rely and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any written notice, instruction or request furnished to it hereunder and believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties.
The Private Warrants will be identical to the warrants included in the units to be sold by the Corporation in the IPO, except that:
|●||the Private Warrants will not be transferable (except to (a) to the Corporation’s initial stockholders, officers, directors, or consultants, any affiliate or family member of any of the Corporation’s officers, directors, or consultants, any affiliate of the Corporation’s initial stockholders or to any of their affiliates, (b) by private sales or transfers made in connection with any forward purchase agreement or similar arrangement or in connection with the consummation of a Business Combination at prices no greater than the price at which the Private Warrants were originally purchased; (c) by virtue of the laws of the State of Delaware or the limited liability company agreement of any initial stockholder upon dissolution of such initial stockholder, (d) in the event of the Corporation’s liquidation prior to the consummation of an initial Business Combination; or (e) in the event that, subsequent to the consummation of an initial Business Combination, the Corporation completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the Corporation’s stockholders having the right to exchange their common stock for cash, securities or other property, in each case (except for clause (d) or with the Corporation’s prior consent) where the transferee agrees to these transfer restrictions) until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination;|
|●||the Private Warrants (and underlying shares of common stock) will be subject to customary registration rights, which shall be described in the Registration Statement;|
|●||the Private Warrants will include any additional terms or restrictions as is customary in other similarly structured blank check company offerings or as may be reasonably required by the underwriters in the IPO in order to consummate the IPO, each of which will be set forth in the Registration Statement.|
