Overview



We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on
February 14, 2020 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange,
asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar Business
Combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our Business
Combination using cash from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the
sale of the Private Placement Warrants, our capital stock, debt or a combination
of cash, stock and debt.



We expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our
acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete a Business
Combination will be successful.



Recent Developments



On July 19, 2021, we entered into the Business Combination Agreement with Merger
Sub and Gelesis., which was amended on November 8, 2021.



The Business Combination Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby
were approved by the board of directors of each of CPSR and Gelesis.



The Business Combination Agreement provides for, among other things, that Merger
Sub will merge with and into Gelesis, with Gelesis as the surviving company in
the merger and, after giving effect to such merger, Gelesis shall be our
wholly-owned subsidiary (the "Merger"). In addition, we will be renamed Gelesis
Holdings, Inc.

In accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Business
Combination Agreement, at the Effective Time, (i) each share of Gelesis
outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time will be exchanged for
CPSR Shares based on an implied Gelesis equity value of $675,000,000, (ii) all
vested and unvested stock options of Gelesis will be assumed by us and
thereafter be settled or exercisable for CPSR Shares, as applicable, determined
based on the same implied Gelesis equity value described in clause (i); (iii)
each warrant of Gelesis will be canceled in exchange for a warrant to purchase
our shares of determined based on the same implied Gelesis equity value
described in clause (i); and (iv) each share of CPSR Class A common stock and
each share of CPSR Class B common stock that is issued and outstanding
immediately prior to the Effective Time shall become one CPSR Share following
the consummation of the Business Combination. In addition, each holder of shares
of Gelesis common stock, options and warrants will receive its pro rata portion
of 23,483,250 restricted earn out CPSR Shares, which will vest (in part) in
equal thirds if the trading price of CPSR Shares is greater than or equal to
$12.50, $15.00 and $17.50, respectively, for any 20 trading days within any
30-trading day period on or prior to the date that is five years following the
Effective Time (the "Earn Out Period") and will also vest in connection with any
Change of Control Transaction with respect to us if the applicable thresholds
are met in such Change of Control Transaction during the Earn Out Period.



The Business Combination is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021,
following the receipt of the required approval by our stockholders and the
fulfillment of other customary closing conditions.



Results of Operations



We have neither engaged in any operations (other than searching for a Business
Combination after our Initial Public Offering) nor generated any revenues to
date. Our only activities through September 30, 2021 were organizational
activities, those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering,
described below, finding a target company for a Business Combination and
activities in connection with the proposed acquisition of Gelesis. We do not
expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our
Business Combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest
income on marketable securities held in the Trust Account. We incur expenses as
a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting
and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.



For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $14,255,408,
which consists of changes in fair value of warrant liabilities of $13,174,144,
operating costs of $1,113,342, and an unrealized loss on marketable securities
held in Trust Account of $106,039,offset by interest income on marketable
securities held in the Trust Account of $138,117.



For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $3,657,398,
which consists of changes in fair value of warrant liabilities of $2,284,340 and
operating costs of $1,518,286, offset by an unrealized gain on marketable
securities held in Trust Account of $2,231, and interest income on marketable
securities held in the Trust Account of $142,997.



For the three months ended September 30, 2020, we had a net loss of $113,691,
which consists of operating costs of $184,615, transaction costs associated with
the Initial Public Offering of $671,901, and a provision for income taxes of
$8,714, offset by the interest earned on marketable securities held in Trust
Account of $96,143, unrealized gain on marketable securities held in Trust
Account of $41,496, and changes in fair value of warrant liabilities of
$613,900.



For the period from February 14, 2020 (inception) through September 30, 2020, we
had a net loss of $114,691, which consists of formation and operational costs of
$185,615, transaction costs associated with the Initial Public Offering of
$671,901, and a provision for income taxes of $8,714, offset by the interest
earned on marketable securities held in Trust Account of $96,143, unrealized
gain on marketable securities held in Trust Account of $41,496, and changes in
fair value of warrant liabilities of $613,900.



Liquidity and Capital Resources



On July 7, 2020, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 27,600,000 Units
at a price of $10.00 per Unit, which includes the full exercise by the
underwriters of the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,600,000,
generating gross proceeds of $276,000,000. Simultaneously with the closing of
the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of 7,520,000 Private
Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in a
private placement to our stockholders, generating gross proceeds of $7,520,000.

Following the Initial Public Offering, the full exercise of the over-allotment
option by the underwriters' and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, a
total of $276,000,000 was placed in the Trust Account and we had $1,389,212 of
cash held outside of the Trust Account, after payment of costs related to the
Initial Public Offering, and available for working capital purposes. We incurred
$15,851,828 in transaction costs, including $5,520,000 of underwriting fees,
$9,660,000 of deferred underwriting fees and $671,828 of other offering costs.



For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash used in operating activities
was $362,889. Net loss of $3,657,398 was affected by changes in fair value of
warrant liabilities of $2,284,340, an unrealized gain on marketable securities
held in Trust Account of $2,231, interest earned on marketable securities held
in the Trust Account of $142,997 and changes in operating assets and
liabilities, which provided $1,155,397 of cash from operating activities.



For the period from February 14, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2020,
cash used in operating activities was $212,209. Net loss of $680,079 was
affected by changes in fair value of warrant liabilities of $48,512, an
unrealized gain on marketable securities held in Trust Account of $41,496,
interest earned on marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $96,143
and changes in operating assets and liabilities, which used $26,594 of cash from
operating activities.



As of September 30, 2021, we had cash and marketable securities held in the
Trust Account of $276,178,675. We intend to use substantially all of the funds
held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on
the Trust Account to complete our Business Combination. We may withdraw interest
to pay franchise and income taxes. During the period ended September 30, 2021,
we have withdrawn $176,006 of interest earned on the Trust Account for the
payment of franchise taxes. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is
used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our Business
Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as
working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses,
make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.



As of September 30, 2021, we had cash of $304,944, respectively outside of the
Trust Account. We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account
primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due
diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices,
plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their
representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of
prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business
Combination.



In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in
connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, an affiliate of the
Sponsor, or our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us
funds as may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay
such loaned amounts. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, we
may use a portion of the working capital held outside the trust account to repay
such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for
such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants,
at a price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would
be identical to the Private Placement Warrants, including as to exercise price,
exercisability and exercise period. The terms of such loans by our officers and
directors, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with
respect to such loans. The loans would be repaid upon consummation of a Business
Combination, without interest.



On July 28, 2021, the Sponsor committed to provide the Company an aggregate of
$4,000,000 in loans for working capital purposes. These loans will be
non-interest bearing, unsecured and will be repaid upon the consummation of a
business combination. If the Company does not consummate a business combination,
all amounts loaned to the Company in connection with these loans will be
forgiven except to the extent that the Company has funds available to it outside
of its Trust Account. As a result, management has determined that sufficient
capital exists to sustain operations through the earlier of the consummation of
a Business Combination or July 7, 2022, the scheduled liquidation date of the
Company if a Business Combination is not completed.



Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements



We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered
off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2021. We do not participate
in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or
financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which
would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet
arrangements. We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing
arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or
commitments of other entities, or purchased any non-financial assets.

Contractual obligations



We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease
obligations or long-term liabilities, other than an agreement to pay an
affiliate of the Sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities
and secretarial and administrative support to the Company. We began incurring
these fees on July 1, 2020 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until
the earlier of the completion of the Business Combination and the Company's
liquidation.



The underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $9,660,000
in the aggregate. The deferred fee will be waived by the underwriters in the
event that the Company does not complete a Business Combination, subject to the
terms of the underwriting agreement.



Critical Accounting Policies



The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements and related
disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States of America
requires management to make estimates and assumptions
that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of
contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated
financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported.
Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified
the following critical accounting policies:



Warrant Liabilities



We account for the Warrants in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC
815-40-15-7D and 7F under which the Warrants do not meet the criteria for equity
treatment and must be recorded as liabilities. Accordingly, we classify the
Warrants as liabilities at their fair value and adjust the Warrants to fair
value at each reporting period. This liability is subject to re-measurement at
each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is
recognized in our statements of operations. The Private Placement Warrants and
the Public Warrants for periods where no observable traded price was available
are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation. For periods subsequent to the
detachment of the Public Warrants from the Units, the Public Warrant quoted
market price was used as the fair value as of each relevant date.



Class A Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption



We account for our shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption
in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC")
Topic 480 "Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity." Shares of Class A common
stock subject to mandatory redemption is classified as a liability instrument
and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including
common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control
of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events
not solely within our control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other
times, common stock is classified as stockholders' equity. Our common stock
features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our
control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, the
Class A common stock subject to possible redemption is presented as temporary
equity, outside of the stockholders' equity section of our unaudited condensed
consolidated balance sheets.



Net Income (Loss) per Common Share



Net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by
the weighted average number of common stock outstanding during the period. We
apply the two-class method in calculating income (loss) per common share.
Accretion associated with the redeemable shares of Class A common stock is
excluded from income (loss) per common share as the redemption value
approximates fair value.

Recent accounting standards


In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, "Debt-Debt with Conversion and
Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in
Entity's Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments
and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity" ("ASU 2020-06"), which simplifies
accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models
required under current GAAP. ASU 2020-06 removes certain settlement conditions
that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope
exception and it also simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in
certain areas. ASU 2020-06 is effective for fiscal years beginning after
December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with
early adoption permitted. We adopted ASU 2020-06 on January 1, 2021. The
adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have an impact on our condensed consolidated
financial statements.



Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet
effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material
effect on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
