(NYSE:SRFM) ("Surf Air Mobility" or "Surf Air"), a regional air mobility platform aiming to sustainably connect the world's communities, today publicly filed a Form S-1 registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("the SEC") registering up to 25.0 million shares to satisfy certain conditions associated with the previously disclosed share subscription facility it has entered into with Luxembourg-based Gem Global Yield LLC SCS ("GGY").
Pursuant to the share subscription facility, upon the terms of and subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, Surf Air Mobility will have the right from time to time at its option to direct GGY to purchase up to a specified maximum amount of shares of Surf Air Mobility common stock, up to a maximum aggregate purchase price of $400 million, over a specified term. After the initial advance of $7.5 million, Surf Air Mobility may request advances of up to $25 million each under the share subscription facility in an aggregate amount of up to $100 million. Any drawn advance will reduce the amount that Surf Air can request for future draw downs.
Surf Air Mobility intends to utilize the shares registered pursuant to the Form S-1 registration statement to request advances under the share subscription facility and satisfy other current obligations to register shares previously issued to GGY. If all the registered shares are not utilized at this time, they will remain available for future advances under the share purchase facility, to the extent such advances are requested by Surf Air Mobility. Surf Air Mobility intends to request such advances as needed and in increments aligned to the long-term growth of its business. The Form S-1 registration statement does not represent the full amount of shares that could be issued and sold to GGY under the share subscription facility.
