CUSIP No. 722615200   13G   Page 4 of 5 

 

As of December 31, 2020, the Reporting Person holds 5,379,700 shares of Class B common stock, representing 19.7% of the total Class A and Class B common stock issued and outstanding. The shares of Class B common stock are automatically convertible into shares of Class A common stock at the time of the Issuer’s initial business combination, on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment, as more fully described in the section entitled “Description of Securities – Founder Shares” in the Issuer's Form S-1 as initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 23, 2020, as amended.

 

Messrs. John A. Thain, Philip A. Cooper and Robert Knox are the three managers of the Reporting Person. Any action by the Reporting Person with respect to the Issuer or the shares owned by the Reporting Person, including voting and dispositive decisions, requires a majority vote of the managers of the Reporting Person. Under the so-called “rule of three,” because voting and dispositive decisions are made by a majority of the managers of the Reporting Person, none of the managers of the Reporting Person is deemed to be a beneficial owner of the Reporting Person’s securities, even those in which such manager holds a pecuniary interest. Accordingly, none of Messrs. Thain, Cooper and Knox is deemed to have or share beneficial ownership of the shares of the Issuer held by the Reporting Person.

 

The percentages used in this Schedule 13G are based on 21,838,750 shares of the Issuer’s Class A common stock and 5,459,700 shares of its Class B common stock issued and outstanding as of December 31, 2020, as reported in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 22, 2020, and after taking into account the forfeiture of 290,300 shares of Class B common stock by the Reporting Person effective December 31, 2020.

 

Item 5. Ownership of 5 Percent or Less of a Class.

 

Not applicable. 

 

Item 6. Ownership of More than 5 Percent on Behalf of Another Person.

Item 7. Identification and Classification of the Subsidiary Which Acquired the Security Being Reported on By the Parent Holding Company or Control Person.
