Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 25, 2022, the Company consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 23,000,000 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 3,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), and one-half of one redeemable public warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Public Warrant”), with each whole Public Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $230,000,000.

On January 25, 2022, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 13,100,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to KnightSwan Sponsor LLC at a purchase price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $13,100,000.

The net proceeds from the IPO, together with certain of the proceeds from the Private Placement, $235,750,000 in the aggregate (the “Offering Proceeds”), were placed in a U.S.-based trust account maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee.

An audited balance sheet as of January 25, 2022 reflecting receipt of the proceeds upon the consummation of the IPO and the Private Placement has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
