I am going to be using the numbers associated with "maximum redemptions" since there were close to 100% redemptions for this SPAC.

  • 55.4% of the shares outstanding are shares held by "certain Existing DeepGreen Securityholders" that are "subject to lock-up restrictions"

certain Existing DeepGreen Securityholders that will be party to the Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement will own TMC Common Shares subject to lock-up restrictions representing approximately 49.7% of the outstanding TMC Common Shares, assuming no public shares are redeemed in connection with the Business Combination or approximately 55.4% of the outstanding TMC Common Shares assuming that all public shares are redeemed in connection with the Business Combination. While such Existing DeepGreen Security Holders and the initial shareholders will agree, and, in the case of the initial shareholders, will continue to be subject, to certain restrictions regarding the transfer of the TMC Common Shares, these shares may be sold after the expiration of the applicable lock-up restrictions

-Page 74 of 424B3

  • 85.3% of the shares outstanding are shares held by "Existing DeepGreen Securityholders"



-Page 13 of 424B3

  • If there were maximum redemptions, there would be 270,348,305 shares outstanding (there are actually 270,348,305 + ~2.7M = ~273,048,305 shares outstanding since only ~27.3M shares got redeemed but I will be using 270,348,305 to calculate how many DeepGreen shares are on the float)



-Page 85 of 424B3

There is a difference of about (85.3% - 55.4%) 29.9% of the shares outstanding that are shares held by "Existing DeepGreen SecurityHolders" but not those "subject to lock-up restrictions."

Meaning, ~29.9% of the shares outstanding (.299 * 270,348,305) = ~80,834,143 million shares , are available on the float.
