Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

PIPE Purchase Agreement

 

As previously disclosed, on August 10, 2023, Blue World Acquisition Corporation (“BWAQ”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 10, 2023, as amended on December 6, 2023, February 6, 2024 and February 29, 2024 (as the same may be amended, restated or supplemented, the “Business Combination Agreement”) with TOYO Co., Ltd, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“PubCo”), TOYOone Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company, TOPTOYO INVESTMENT PTE. LTD., a Singapore private company limited by shares, Vietnam Sunergy Cell Company Limited, a Vietnamese company, Vietnam Sunergy Joint Stock Company, a Vietnam joint stock company, Fuji Solar Co., Ltd, a Japanese company, WA Global Corporation, a Cayman Islands exempted company, Belta Technology Company Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company, and BestToYo Technology Company Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company, regarding a proposed business combination and related transactions (the “Transactions”).

 

On March 6, 2024, BWAQ entered into a share purchase agreement (the “PIPE Purchase Agreement”) with PubCo and a certain investor, NOTAM Co., Ltd., a Japanese corporation (“NOTAM”), in connection with the Transactions. Pursuant to the PIPE Purchase Agreement, NOTAM agrees to purchase a total of 600,000 Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, of BWAQ (the “PIPE Shares”), at a purchase price of $10.00 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $6,000,000 (the “PIPE Purchase Price”). Upon the written notice of BWAQ, at least three (3) business days prior to the reasonably expected closing date of the Transactions provided in such notice, NOTAM will deliver or cause to be delivered the PIPE Purchase Price into an escrow account with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as the escrow agent (the “Escrow Agent”).

 

The closing of the sale of the PIPE Shares (the “PIPE Closing”) will be held on the same date and immediately prior to the closing of the Transactions. At the PIPE Closing, BWAQ will issue and deliver to NOTAM the PIPE Shares against the release of the PIPE Purchase Price by the Escrow Agent to BWAQ. If the closing of the Transactions does not occur or if the PIPE Shares are not converted into Converted PIPE Shares (as defined below) within thirty (30) days after the PIPE Purchase Price is delivered to the Escrow Agent, the Escrow Agent will automatically return to NOTAM the PIPE Purchase Price.

 

Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, each ordinary share of BWAQ, including the PIPE Shares, issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger Effective Time (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) will automatically be converted into the right to receive one (1) ordinary share of PubCo, par value $0.0001 per share (“Converted PIPE Shares”). NOTAM is entitled to make up to two (2) demands that PubCo register such Converted PIPE Shares, if and only if the Converted PIPE Shares are not registered on a registration statement on Form F-4 containing a prospectus/proxy statement relating to the Transactions to be filed by PubCo with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In addition, NOTAM has certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the consummation of the Transactions. PubCo will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

 

A copy of the PIPE Purchase Agreement is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the PIPE Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the PIPE Purchase Agreement.

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The disclosure set forth in Item 1.01 of this Report is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. The issuance of the PIPE Shares to NOTAM will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and is in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Regulation S promulgated thereunder.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Report includes forward looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and may be accompanied by words that convey projected future events or outcomes, such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “design,” “intend,” “expect,” “could,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “seek,” “target,” “aim,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “should,” “would,” or variations of such words or by expressions of similar meaning. Such forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the advantages and expected growth of the combined company, the cash position of the combined company following the closing, the ability of TOYO Solar and BWAQ to consummate the proposed Transactions and the timing of such consummation, are subject to risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those factors described in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in BWAQ’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 28, 2023 (the “Form 10-K”), BWAQ’s final prospectus dated January 31, 2023 filed with the SEC (the “Final Prospectus”) related to IPO, and in other documents filed by BWAQ with the SEC from time to time. Important factors that could cause the combined company’s actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include: TOYO Solar’s or the combined company’s limited operating history; the ability of TOYO Solar or the combined company to identify and integrate acquisitions; general economic and market conditions impacting demand for the products of TOYO Solar or the combined company; the inability to complete the proposed Transactions; the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed Transactions, which may be affected by, among other things, the amount of cash available following any redemptions by BWAQ shareholders; the ability to meet Nasdaq’s listing standards following the consummation of the proposed Transactions; costs related to the proposed Transactions; and such other risks and uncertainties as are discussed in the Form 10-K, the Final Prospectus and the proxy statement to be filed relating to the Transactions. Other factors include the possibility that the proposed Transactions do not close, including due to the failure to receive required security holder approvals, or the failure of other closing conditions.

 

TOYO Solar, PubCo and BWAQ each expressly disclaims any obligations or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the expectations of TOYO Solar, PubCo or BWAQ with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any statement is based, except as required by law.

 

Additional Information about the Transaction and Where to Find It

 

In connection with the proposed Transactions, PubCo intends to file with the SEC a registration statement on Form F-4, which will include a preliminary proxy statement containing information about the proposed Transactions and the respective businesses of TOYO Solar and BWAQ, as well as the prospectus relating to the offer of the PubCo securities to be issued to in connection with the completion of the proposed Transactions. After the registration statement is declared effective, BWAQ will mail a definitive proxy statement and other relevant documents to its shareholders as of the record date established for voting on the proposed Transactions.

Section 4.04 No U.S. Person. The Buyer is not a “U.S. person” as defined in Rule 902 of Regulation S. The Buyer is not acquiring the PIPE Shares for the account or benefit of any U.S. person as defined in Rule 902 of Regulation S or with a view to distribution. The Buyer was not formed for the purpose of acquiring the PIPE Shares. No subscription, application or agreement in connection with the PIPE Shares was executed or delivered by the Buyer in the United States.

 

Section 4.05 No Brokers. No broker, investment banker, financial advisor, finder or other person has been retained by or is authorized to act on behalf of Buyer that will be entitled to any fee or commission for which the Company will be liable in connection with the execution of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

Section 4.06 Securities Law Compliance. The Buyer understands that the PIPE Shares are being offered in a transaction not involving any public offering within the meaning of the Securities Act. The Buyer understands that until registered under an effective registration statement, the PIPE Shares of the Company may not be resold, transferred, pledged or otherwise disposed of by the Buyer absent an effective registration statement under the Securities Act except (i) to the Company or a subsidiary thereof, (ii) to non-U.S. persons as defined in Rule 902 of Regulation S pursuant to offers and sales that occur outside the United States within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act or (iii) pursuant to another applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and in each of cases (i) and (iii) in accordance with any applicable securities laws of the states and other jurisdictions of the United States, and that any certificates (if any) or any book-entry shares representing the PIPE Shares shall contain a legend or restrictive notation to such effect. The Buyer understands and agrees that the PIPE Shares, until registered under an effective registration statement, will be subject to transfer restrictions and, as a result of these transfer restrictions, the Buyer may not be able to readily resell the PIPE Shares and may be required to bear the financial risk of an investment in the PIPE Shares for an indefinite period of time. The Buyer understands that it has been advised to consult legal counsel prior to making any offer, resale, pledge or transfer of any of the PIPE Shares. The Buyer understands that, because the Company is a shell corporation, the Buyer will not be eligible to use Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act for at least one year after “Form 10” information relating to the Merger has been filed with the SEC. The Buyer understands that the PIPE Shares will be issued in book entry form.

 

Section 4.07 Risks of Investment.

 

(a) The Buyer acknowledges that it is aware that there are substantial risks incident to the purchase and ownership of the PIPE Shares, including those set forth in the Company’s filings with the SEC. The Buyer is able to fend for itself in the transactions contemplated herein and has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the PIPE Shares, and the Buyer has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as the Buyer has considered necessary to make an informed investment decision. Alone, or together with any professional advisor(s), the Buyer has considered the risks of an investment in the PIPE Shares and determined that the PIPE Shares are a suitable investment for the Buyer and that the Buyer is able at this time and in the foreseeable future to bear the economic risk of a total loss of the Buyer’s investment in the Company.

 

(b) The Buyer acknowledges specifically that a possibility of total loss exists. In making its decision to purchase the PIPE Shares, the Buyer has relied solely upon independent investigation made by the Buyer and the representations and warranties of the Company and PubCo set forth herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Buyer has not relied on any projections or forecasts of future results of operations. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Buyer had access to, and an adequate opportunity to review, financial and other information as Buyer deems necessary in order to make an investment decision with respect to the PIPE Shares.

 

(c) The Buyer understands and agrees that no federal or state agency has passed upon or endorsed the merits of this offering of the PIPE Shares or made any findings or determination as to the fairness of this investment or the accuracy or adequacy of the information provided to the Buyer.

Section 4.08 Anti-Money Laundering. The operations of the Buyer, including the obligations of the Buyer pursuant to this Agreement, are and have been conducted at all times in compliance with applicable financial recordkeeping and reporting requirements and all other applicable U.S. and non-U.S. anti-money laundering laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, those of the Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act of 1970, as amended, the USA Patriot Act of 2001 and the applicable money laundering statutes of all applicable jurisdictions, the rules and regulations thereunder and any related or similar rules, regulations or guidelines, issued, administered or enforced by any governmental agency in the United States and, if the Buyer is a resident of any country other than the United States the anti-money laundering laws of the country in which the Buyer is a resident (collectively, the “Anti-Money Laundering Laws”), and no action, suit or proceeding by or before any court or governmental agency, authority or body or any arbitrator involving Buyer with respect to the Anti-Money Laundering Laws is pending or, to the Buyer’s knowledge, threatened and there is no basis for any such action, suit or proceeding.

 

Section 4.09 Absence of Certain Relationships. To the best of the Buyer’s knowledge, none of: (i) the Buyer; (ii) any person controlling or controlled by the Buyer; (iii) any person having a beneficial interest in the Buyer; or (iv) any person for whom the Buyer is acting as agent or nominee in connection with the purchase of the PIPE Shares:

 

(a) is a country, territory, individual or entity named on a list maintained by of the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), or a person or entity prohibited under the OFAC Programs. The Buyer agrees to promptly notify the Company should the Buyer become aware of any change in the information set forth in these representations; or

 

(b) is a senior foreign political figure, or any immediate family member or close associate of a senior foreign political figure, as such terms are defined in the footnotes below.

 

ARTICLE 5
Registration Rights

 

Section 5.01 Demand Registration Rights. PubCo hereby agrees with the Buyer or its permitted transferees (collectively, the “Holders”) that at any time after the Merger Closing, if and only if the Converted Shares have not been registered in the Registration Statement, PubCo shall, within forty-five (45) days of receipt of such written notice (the “Demand Notice”), file a registration statement under the Securities Act providing for the proposed resale of such Converted Shares (the “Requested Shares”), all to the extent requisite to permit the sale or other disposition by the prospective seller or sellers of the Requested Shares; provided that PubCo shall not be obligated to effect any such registration under any one of the following conditions:

 

(a) After PubCo has effected two (2) such registrations pursuant to this Section 5.01 and each such registration has been declared or ordered effective;

 

(b) If any such Holders making registration request under this Section 5.01 (the “Requesting Holders”) may dispose of shares of Registrable Securities pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form F-3 under the Securities Act as in effect on the date hereof or any successor form under the Securities Act (“Form F-3”); or

 

(c) PubCo shall not undertake, or be required to undertake, any action to qualify, register or list any securities on any exchange other than the exchange on which its securities are traded at the time.

 

(d) In the event that updated financial statements are required to file such registration statement, PubCo can, at its sole discretion, defer the filing date of the registration statement beyond the forty-five (45) days of receipt of the Demand Notice until ten (10) days after PubCo has filed an annual or quarterly report, as the case may be, with such updated financial statements.

 

(e) PubCo shall not be required to register any shares pursuant to this Section 5.01 or Section 5.02 which are not Registrable Shares. “Registrable Shares” shall mean the Converted Shares, provided, however, that ordinary shares will cease to be Registrable Shares when (A) they have been effectively registered under the Securities Act and disposed of in accordance with the registration statement covering them or disposed of pursuant to Rule 144, (B) they are or may be freely traded without registration pursuant to Rule 144, or (C) they have been otherwise transferred and new certificates for them not bearing a restrictive legend have been issued by PubCo and PubCo shall not have “stop transfer” instructions against them.

Section 5.02 “Piggyback” Registration Rights. PubCo hereby agrees with the Holders that at any time after the Merger Closing, if PubCo shall determine to proceed with the preparation and filing of a new registration statement under the Securities Act in connection with a proposed offer and sale of any of its securities by it or any of its security holders other than (a) a registration statement on Form F-4, F-8 or other limited purpose form, if and only if the Converted Shares have not been registered in the Registration Statement, PubCo will give written notice of its determination to all Holders. Upon the written request from any Holders (the “Requesting Piggyback Holders”), within 10 days after their receipt of any such notice from PubCo, PubCo will, except as herein provided, cause all of the Converted Shares covered by such request (the “Requested Piggyback Shares”) held by the Requesting Piggyback Holders to be included in such registration statement, all to the extent requisite to permit the sale or other disposition by the prospective seller or sellers of the Requested Piggyback Shares. If any registration pursuant to this Section 5.02 shall be underwritten in whole or in part in connection with an underwritten offering by PubCo or its securities, PubCo may require that the Requested Piggyback Shares be included in the underwriting on the same terms and conditions as the securities otherwise being sold through the underwriters. In such event, the Requesting Piggyback Holders shall, if requested by the underwriters, execute an underwriting agreement containing customary representations and warranties by selling shareholders; provided, that the representations by the Requesting Piggyback Holders shall be limited to matters relating to its ownership or the Converted Shares being registered and related matters. If the managing underwriter of such public offering advises PubCo that the inclusion of any or all of the Requested Piggyback Shares would reduce the number of shares to be offered by PubCo or interfere with the successful marketing of the securities offered by PubCo, the number of shares of Requested Piggyback Shares otherwise to be included in the underwritten public offering may be reduced pro rata (by number of shares) among the Requesting Piggyback Holders and all other holders of piggyback registration rights with respect to PubCo’s shares who have requested inclusion of their securities or excluded in their entirety if so required by the underwriter. Registration pursuant to this Section 5.02 shall not be deemed to be a demand registration as described in Section 5.01 above. PubCo’s obligations under this Section 5.02 shall not apply to the shares held by a Holder after the earlier of (a) three (3) years from the date of this Agreement, (b) the date that such shares held by a Holder have been sold pursuant to Rule 144 or an effective registration statement, and (c) such time as such shares held by a Holder are eligible for immediate resale pursuant to Rule 144.

 

Section 5.03 Registration Procedures. To the extent required by Section 5.01 and Section 5.02, PubCo will:

 

(a) prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement with respect to such securities, and use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective as promptly as practicable after the filing thereof;

 

(b) prepare and file with the SEC such amendments to such registration statement and supplements to the prospectus contained therein as may be necessary to keep such registration statement effective;

 

(c) use its commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify the securities covered by such registration statement under such state securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions as the Holders may reasonably request in writing within twenty (20) days following the original filing of such registration statement, except that PubCo shall not for any purpose be required to execute a general consent to service of process or to qualify to do business as a foreign corporation in any jurisdiction wherein it is not so qualified;

 

(d) notify the Holders, promptly after it shall receive notice thereof, of the time when such registration statement has become effective or a supplement to any prospectus forming a part of such registration statement has been filed;

 

(e) prepare and file with the SEC, promptly upon the request of any Holders, any amendments or supplements to such registration statement or prospectus which, in the opinion of counsel for such Holders (and concurred in by counsel for PubCo), is required under the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder in connection with the distribution of ordinary shares by such Holders;

 

(f) prepare and promptly file with the SEC and promptly notify such Holders of the filing of such amendment or supplement to such registration statement or prospectus as may be necessary to correct any statements or omissions if, at the time when a prospectus relating to such securities is required to be delivered under the Securities Act, any event shall have occurred as the result of which any such prospectus or any other prospectus as then in effect would include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading; and

 

9

 

 

(g) advise the Holders, promptly after it shall receive notice or obtain knowledge thereof, of the issuance of any stop order by the SEC suspending the effectiveness of such registration statement or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for that purpose.

 

It is a condition precedent to the obligations of PubCo to take any action pursuant to this ARTICLE 5 that the Requesting Holders shall cooperate with PubCo in providing the information necessary to effect the registration of their Registrable Shares, including completion of customary questionnaires and furnishing of information regarding itself, the securities of PubCo held by it and intended method of disposition as shall be reasonably requested in writing by PubCo. Failure to do so will at minimum result in exclusion of such Holders’ Converted Shares from the registration statement.

 

Section 5.04 Expenses. To the extent required by Section 5.01 and Section 5.02, PubCo will:

 

(a) Subject to Section 5.04(b), with respect to the any registration required pursuant to Section 5.01 and Section 5.02 hereof, all reasonable fees, costs and expenses of and incidental to such registration, inclusion and public offering (as specified in paragraph (b) below) in connection therewith shall be borne by PubCo. Notwithstanding the foregoing, PubCo shall not be required to pay for any expenses of any registration process begun pursuant to this Section 5.04 if the registration request is subsequently withdrawn at the request of the Holders or any subset thereof, unless the Holders agree that such registration constitutes the use by the Holders of one (1) demand registration pursuant to Section 5.01.

 

(b) The fees, costs and expenses of registration to be borne by PubCo as provided in paragraph (a) above shall include, without limitation, all registration, filing, and FINRA fees, printing expenses, fees and disbursements of counsel and accountants for PubCo, and all legal fees and disbursements and other expenses of complying with state securities or blue sky laws of any jurisdictions in which the securities to be offered are to be registered and qualified (except as provided in 5.04(a) above). Fees and disbursements of counsel and accountants for the Holders and any other expenses incurred by the Holders not expressly included above, including any underwriting discounts and selling commissions or other amounts payable to underwriter(s) or broker(s) in connection with the sale or disposition of the Holders’ Converted Shares, shall be borne by the Holders or the applicable Holders (as the case may be) on a pro rata basis.

Section 7.11 Waiver of Claims Against Trust. Reference is made to the final prospectus of the Company, filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on January 31, 2022 (the “Prospectus”). Buyer warrants and represents that it has read the Prospectus and understands that the Company has established the Trust Account containing the proceeds of its initial public offering (the “IPO”) and from certain private placements occurring simultaneously with the IPO collectively, with interest accrued from time to time thereon, initially in an amount of $92,900,000 for the benefit of the Company’s public shareholders (the “Public Shareholders”) and certain parties (including the underwriters of the IPO) and that, except for a portion of the interest earned on the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Company may disburse monies from the Trust Account only: (i) to the Public Shareholders in the event they elect to redeem ordinary shares of the Company in connection with the consummation of the Company’s Business Combination, (ii) to the Public Shareholders if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within the applicable time period, (iii) with respect to any interest earned on the amounts held in the Trust Account, amounts necessary to pay for any taxes and up to $50,000 in dissolution expenses or (iv) to the Company after or concurrently with the consummation of a Business Combination.

 

For and in consideration of the Company entering into entering into this agreement with Buyer, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, Buyer hereby agrees that it does not now and shall not at any time hereafter have any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies in the Trust Account or distributions therefrom, or make any claim against, the Trust Account, regardless of whether such claim arises as a result of, in connection with or relating in any way to, any proposed or actual business relationship between the Company and Buyer, this Agreement or any other matter, and regardless of whether such claim arises based on contract, tort, equity or any other theory of legal liability (any and all such claims are collectively referred to hereafter as the “Claims”). Buyer hereby irrevocably waives any Claims it may have against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) now or in the future as a result of, or arising out of, any negotiations, contracts or agreements with the Company and will not seek recourse against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, for an alleged breach of this Agreement). Buyer agrees and acknowledges that such irrevocable waiver is material to this Agreement and specifically relied upon by the Company to induce it to enter in this Agreement, and Buyer further intends and understands such waiver to be valid, binding and enforceable under applicable law.
