Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

 

On March 11, 2022, an aggregate of $1,150,000 (the “Extension Payment”) was deposited by ATAC Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Sponsor”), into the trust account of Americas Technology Acquisition Corp. (“Company”) for the Company’s public shareholders, representing $0.10 per public share, which enables the Company to extend the period of time it has to consummate its initial business combination by three months from March 17, 2022 to June 17, 2022 (the “Extension”). The Extension is the second of the two three-month extensions permitted under ATAC’s governing documents.

 

In connection with the Extension Payment, the Company issued to the Sponsor an unsecured promissory note (the “Note”) having a principal amount equal to the amount of the Extension Payment. The Note bears no interest and will be due and payable (subject to the waiver against trust provisions) on the earlier of (i) the date on which the Company’s initial business combination is consummated and (ii) the date of the liquidation of the Company.

 

A copy of the Note is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The disclosures set forth in this Item 2.03 are intended to be summaries only and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Note.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On March 14, 2022, the Company issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing that the Extension Payment had been made and that the Company had issued the Note to the Sponsor in connection therewith. A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto. The information in this Item 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
