Introductory Note

 

On January 10, 2022 (the “Closing Date”), Petra Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and our predecessor company (“Petra”), consummated the previously announced business combination (the “Business Combination”), pursuant to the terms of the agreement and plan of merger, dated as of August 29, 2021 (the “Business Combination Agreement”), by and among Petra, Petra Acquisition Merger, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Petra (“Merger Sub”), and Revelation Biosciences, Inc. (“Old Revelation”). Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, on the Closing Date, (i) Merger Sub merged with and into Old Revelation (the “Merger”), with Old Revelation as the surviving company in the Merger, and, after giving effect to such Merger, Old Revelation was renamed Revelation Biosciences Sub, Inc. and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petra and (ii) Petra changed its name to “Revelation Biosciences, Inc.” (“New Revelation” or the “Company” f/k/a Petra Acquisition, Inc.).

 

In accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Business Combination Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), (i) each share of common stock and preferred stock of Old Revelation outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time was exchanged for shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of New Revelation (“Common Stock”) based on the agreed upon conversion rate of 2.725 (the “Common Stock Exchange Ratio); (ii) each Old Revelation RSU Award (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time was assumed by New Revelation and was converted into that number of whole New Revelation Rollover RSU Awards (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) based on the Common Stock Exchange Ratio; and (iii) each Old Revelation Warrant (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time was assumed by New Revelation and was converted into that number of whole New Revelation Rollover Warrants (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) based on the Common Stock Exchange Ratio, at an exercise price per share of Common Stock equal to (x) the exercise price per share of Old Revelation common stock of such Old Revelation Warrant divided by (y) the Common Stock Exchange Ratio.

 

No fraction of a share of Common Stock was issued at the Closing, and each person who was otherwise entitled to a fraction of a share of Common Stock (after aggregating all fractional shares of Common Stock that otherwise would be received by such holder) received the number of shares of Common Stock rounded in the aggregate to the nearest whole share of Common Stock.

 

Unless the context otherwise requires, “New Revelation,” “we,” “us,” “our,” and the “Company” refer to Revelation Biosciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation. All references herein to the “Board” refer to the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”). All references herein to the “Closing” refer to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement, including the Merger and the Business Combination (collectively, the “Transactions”). 

 

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

The disclosure set forth in the “Introductory Note” above is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01.

 

As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 12, 2022, Petra held a special meeting of stockholders on January 6, 2022 (the “Special Meeting”) at which the stockholders of Petra considered and approved, among other matters, a proposal to adopt the Business Combination Agreement and the transactions contemplated therein. On the Closing Date, the parties to the Business Combination Agreement consummated the Transactions.

At the Closing, of the 10,500,000 shares of Common Stock constituting the Merger Consideration, (i) an aggregate of 9,871,343 shares of Common Stock were issued in exchange for the Old Revelation stock outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, (ii) 167,867 shares of Common Stock were reserved for issuance for Revelation Rollover Warrants outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and (iii) 460,706 shares of Common Stock were reserved for issuance for Revelation Rollover RSU’s outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time.

 

Immediately after giving effect to the Business Combination, there were 12,944,213 shares of Common Stock outstanding, and 1,294,421 shares of Common Stock reserved for future issuance under the Equity Incentive Plan.

 

In connection with the Merger, holders of 3,480,362 shares of Petra common stock exercised their right to redeem such shares for cash at a price of approximately $10.20 per share for payments in the aggregate of approximately $35.5 million. On the Closing Date, approximately $7.6 million was escrowed pursuant to that certain Forward Share Purchase Agreement entered into by and between Petra and Meteora Special Opportunity Fund I, LP, a Delaware limited partnership, and Meteora Capital Partners, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (collectively, “Meteora”) and approximately $4.2 million was released to the Company.

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management

 

The following table sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership of our Common Stock as of the Closing Date, after giving effect to the Closing of the Transactions, by:

 

  each person known to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our outstanding Common Stock;
     
  each of our executive officers and directors; and
     
  all of our executive officers and directors as a group following the consummation of the Transactions.

 

Beneficial ownership is determined according to the rules of the SEC, which generally provide that a person has beneficial ownership of a security if he, she or it possesses sole or shared voting or investment power over that security. Under those rules, beneficial ownership includes securities that the individual or entity has the right to acquire, such as through the vesting and issuance of RSU’s, within 60 days. Shares subject to RSU’s that are currently vested, vesting or issuable within 60 days of the Closing Date are considered outstanding and beneficially owned by the person holding such options for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of that person but are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person. Unless otherwise indicated, New Revelation believes that the persons and entities named in the table below have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares shown as beneficially owned by them. Unless otherwise noted, the business address of each of the directors and executive officers of New Revelation is 4660 La Jolla Village Dr., Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92122.

 

The percentage of beneficial ownership of New Revelation is calculated based on 12,944,213 shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the Transactions and do not take into account (i) the issuance of shares upon exercise of warrants to purchase 10,679,464 shares of Common Stock currently outstanding and (ii) the issuance of 460,706 shares of Common Stock for outstanding Rollover RSU’s.
