Form of Private Placement Purchase Agreement between the Registrant and Cantor Fitzgerald & Co
Collective Growth 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 to be lead-managed by Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. (“IPO”). The Corporation currently anticipates selling units in the IPO, each comprised of one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Corporation (“Common Stock”) and one-half of one warrant (“Warrant”), each whole Warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock.
The undersigned hereby commits to purchase an aggregate of 75,000 units of the Corporation (“Private Units”) at $10.00 per Private Unit, for an aggregate purchase price of $750,000 (the “Purchase Price”). The Private Units and underlying warrants (the “Private Warrants”) will be identical to the units and warrants to be sold in the IPO except as described in the Corporation’s registration statement filed in connection with the IPO (“Registration Statement”). The undersigned shall pay the Purchase Price for the Private Units by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the trust account established by the Corporation in connection with the IPO on the date the IPO is consummated.
The Private Units and underlying Private Warrants will be identical to the units and warrants to be sold by the Corporation in the IPO, except that:
|●||the undersigned agrees not to seek conversion, or seek to sell in any tender offer, in connection with any proposed Business Combination any shares of Common Stock included in the Private Units;|
|●||the Private Warrants included in the Private Units (i) will not be redeemable by the Corporation, (ii) may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis, as described in the Registration Statement, in each case so long as they are held by the undersigned or any of its permitted transferees and (iii) may not be exercised after five years from the effective date of the Registration Statement so long as the Private Warrants included in the Private Units are held by the undersigned or its designees or affiliates;|
|●||the Private Units and underlying securities will not be transferable by the undersigned until the consummation of a Business Combination (subject to certain exceptions as described in the Registration Statement and set forth in the warrant agreement governing the Private Warrants);|
|●||the Private Units and the securities underlying the Private Units will be subject to customary registration rights, pursuant to a registration rights agreement on terms agreed upon by the Corporation and the Underwriters to be filed as an exhibit to the Registration Statement;|
|●||the undersigned will not participate in any liquidation distribution with respect to the Private Units or the underlying securities if the Corporation fails to consummate a Business Combination; and|
|●||the Private Units and the underlying securities 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 order to consummate the IPO, which terms or restrictions will be described in the Registration Statement.|
The undersigned acknowledges and agrees that it will execute agreements in form and substance typical for transactions of this nature necessary to effectuate the foregoing agreements and obligations prior to the consummation of the IPO as are reasonably acceptable to the undersigned, including but not limited to a registration rights agreement.
The undersigned further acknowledges and agrees that the Private Units and their component parts and the related registration rights will be deemed compensation by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) and will therefore, pursuant to Rule 5110(g) of the FINRA Manual, be subject to lock-up for a period of 180 days immediately following the date of effectiveness or commencement of sales in the IPO, subject to FINRA Rule 5110(g)(2). Additionally, the Private Units and their component parts and the related registration rights may not be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated or be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put or call transaction that would result in the economic disposition of such securities by any person during the foregoing 180 day period following the effective date of the Registration Statement except to any underwriter or selected dealer participating in the IPO and the bona fide officers or partners of the undersigned and any such participating underwriter or selected dealer.
The undersigned hereby represents and warrants that, as applicable:
|(a)||it has been advised that the Private Units and the underlying securities have not been registered under the Securities Act;|
|(b)||it is acquiring the Private Units and the underlying securities for its account for investment purposes only;|
|(c)||it has no present intention of selling or otherwise disposing of the Private Units or the underlying securities in violation of the securities;|
|(d)||it is an “accredited investor” as defined by Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended;|
|(e)||it has had both the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the officers and directors of the Corporation and all persons acting on its behalf concerning the terms and conditions of the offer made hereunder;|
|(f)||it is familiar with the proposed business, management, financial condition and affairs of the Corporation;|
|(g)||it has full power, authority and legal capacity to execute and deliver this letter and any documents contemplated herein or needed to consummate the transactions contemplated in this letter; and|
|(h)||this letter constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation, and is enforceable against it.|
|Very truly yours,|
|CANTOR FITZGERALD & CO.|
