NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(unaudited)

Note 1—Description of Organization and Business Operations

Organization and General

Kayne Anderson Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on December 12, 2016. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Initial Business Combination”). The Company’s focus is to search for a target business in the energy industry. The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the “Securities Act,” as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”).

On April 4, 2017, the Company closed its initial public offering (“Public Offering”) (See Note 3). The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of its Initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents from the proceeds derived from the Public Offering. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

Sponsor

The Company’s sponsor is Kayne Anderson Sponsor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”).

The Trust Account

The proceeds from the Company’s Public Offering, held in the trust account with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC acting as trustee (the “Trust Account”) are invested in money market funds that meet certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”) and that invest only in direct U.S. government obligations. Funds will remain in the Trust Account until the earlier of (i) the consummation of the Initial Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account proceeds as described below. The remaining proceeds outside the Trust Account may be used to pay for business, legal and accounting due diligence on prospective acquisitions and continuing general and administrative expenses.

The Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that, other than the withdrawal of investment income to pay taxes, if any, none of the funds held in the Trust Account will be released until the earlier of: (i) the completion of the Initial Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of any shares of Class A Common Stock included in the units (the “Public Shares”) sold in the Public Offering that have been properly tendered in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to modify the substance or timing of its obligation to redeem 100% of such shares of Class A Common Stock if it does not complete the Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Public Offering; and (iii) the redemption of 100% of the shares of Class A Common Stock included in the Units sold in the Public Offering if the Company is unable to complete an Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Public Offering (subject to the requirements of law). The proceeds deposited in the Trust Account could become subject to the claims of the Company’s creditors, if any, which could have priority over the claims of the Company’s public stockholders.

Initial Business Combination

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Public Offering, although substantially all of the net proceeds of the Public Offering are intended to be generally applied toward consummating an Initial Business Combination. The Initial Business Combination must occur with one or more target businesses that together have an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on income earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into the Initial Business Combination. Furthermore, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect an Initial Business Combination.

The Company, after signing a definitive agreement for an Initial Business Combination, will either (i) seek stockholder approval of the Initial Business Combination at a meeting called for such purpose in connection with which stockholders may seek to redeem their shares, regardless of whether they vote for or against the Initial Business Combination, for cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Initial Business

Table of Contents

Combination, including investment income but less taxes payable, or (ii) provide stockholders with the opportunity to sell their Public Shares to the Company by means of a tender offer (and thereby avoid the need for a stockholder vote) for an amount in cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Initial Business Combination, including investment income but less taxes payable. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of the Initial Business Combination or will allow stockholders to sell their Public Shares in a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion, and will be based on a variety of factors such as the timing of the transaction and whether the terms of the transaction would otherwise require the Company to seek stockholder approval, unless a vote is required by law or under rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market. If the Company seeks stockholder approval, it will complete its Initial Business Combination only if a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock voted are voted in favor of the Initial Business Combination. However, in no event will the Company redeem its Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 upon consummation of the Initial Business Combination. In such case, the Company would not proceed with the redemption of its Public Shares and the related Initial Business Combination, and instead may search for an alternate Initial Business Combination.

If the Company holds a stockholder vote or there is a tender offer for shares in connection with an Initial Business Combination, a public stockholder will have the right to redeem its shares for an amount in cash equal to its pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the consummation of the Initial Business Combination, including investment income but less taxes payable. As a result, such shares of Class A Common Stock will be recorded at redemption amount and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Public Offering, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.”

In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company after an Initial Business Combination, the Company’s stockholders are entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining available for distribution to them after payment of liabilities and after provision is made for each class of stock, if any, having preference over the common stock. The Company’s stockholders have no preemptive or other subscription rights. There are no sinking fund provisions applicable to the common stock, except that the Company will provide its stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares for cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, upon the completion of the Initial Business Combination, subject to the limitations described herein.

Liquidation and Going Concern

Pursuant to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, if the Company is unable to complete the Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Public Offering, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account including investment income earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to us to pay the Company’s franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of investment income to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining stockholders and the Company’s board of directors, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors have entered into letter agreements with the Company, pursuant to which they have agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares (as defined below) held by them if the Company fails to complete the Initial Business Combination within 24 months of the closing of the Public Offering. However, if the Sponsor or any of the Company’s directors, officers or affiliates acquire shares of Class A Common Stock in or after the Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such shares if the Company fails to complete the Initial Business Combination within the prescribed time period.

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standard Board’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, management has determined that the mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution discussed above raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after April 4, 2019.

In the event of liquidation, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be less than the initial public offering price per unit in the Public Offering.

Note 2—Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements of the Company are presented in U.S. dollars in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the accounting and disclosure rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position as of June 30, 2018 and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year.

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Form 10-K filed by the Company with the SEC on March 27, 2018.

Emerging Growth Company

Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the “Exchange Act”) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such an election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard.

This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statement with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition, period difficult or impossible, because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

Net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, plus, to the extent dilutive, the incremental number of shares of common stock to settle warrants, as calculated using the treasury stock method. An aggregate of 36,156,709 and 35,973,009 shares of Class A common stock subject to possible redemption at June 30, 2018 and at June 30, 2017, respectively, have been excluded from the calculation of basic income per common share. For all periods presented, the Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Public Offering (including the consummation of the over-allotment) and Private Placement Warrants to purchase 18,941,651 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the warrants and the conversion of the rights into shares of common stock is contingent upon the occurrence of future events.

Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Depository Insurance Coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

Financial Instruments

The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under the FASB ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the balance sheet.

Table of Contents

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Income Taxes

The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes under FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

FASB ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. To the extent a tax position does not meet these recognition and measurement thresholds, the associated benefit is not recognized in whole or in part and is reflected as an unrecognized tax benefit. There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2018 or 2017. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties at June 30, 2018 or 2017. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its tax position. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded income tax expense of $300,088 and $538,357, respectively, primarily related to investment income earned on the Trust Account. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded income tax expense of $170,349 primarily related to investment income earned on the Trust Account. Until the Company completes an Initial Business Combination, its general and administrative expenses will be deferred for tax purposes.

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company made an estimated federal income tax payment of $834,463 of which $323,000 related to 2017 and $511,463 to 2018. Upon filing the 2017 tax return, the final tax liability was $307,683 resulting in an overpayment of $15,317. The overpayment has been applied to 2018, resulting in a current tax liability of $8,770.

At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company had $2,252,255 and $1,537,927, respectively, of deferred general and administrative expenses resulting in a deferred tax asset of $472,974 and $322,965, respectively. Management has determined that a full valuation allowance on the deferred tax asset is appropriate at this time after consideration of all available positive and negative evidence related to the realization of the deferred tax asset.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Reform Bill”) was signed into law. Prior to the enactment of the Tax Reform Bill, the Company measured its deferred tax assets at the federal rate of 34%. The Tax Reform Bill reduced the federal tax rate to 21% resulting in the re-measurement of the deferred tax asset. Beginning January 1, 2018, the Company started to use the tax rate of 21% to calculate the amount of any federal income tax due on taxable income.

The Company’s federal statutory income tax rate is 21% and the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 was 34% and 29%, respectively, which is a result of the full valuation allowance against its deferred tax asset. The total income taxes were different from the amount computed by applying the federal statutory income tax rate of 21% to income before income taxes as follows:

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The Company’s management does not believe any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

Note 3—Public Offering

In April 2017, the Company closed its Public Offering of 37,732,112 units at a price of $10.00 per unit (the “Units”), with gross proceeds of $377,321,120 from the sale of Units. The closings occurred on April 4, 2017 with respect to 35,000,000 Units and on April 21, 2017 with respect to 2,732,112 Units related to the partial exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option.

Each Unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A Common Stock, and one-third of one warrant (each, a “Warrant” and, collectively, the “Warrants”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per share. Each Warrant will become exercisable on the later of 30 days after the completion of the Company’s Initial Business Combination or 12 months from the closing of the Public Offering, and will expire five years after the completion of the Company’s Initial Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. Once the Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Warrants in whole and not in part at a price of $0.01 per Warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption, if and only if the last sale price of the Company’s Class A Common Stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sent the notice of redemption to the Warrant holders.

Commencing on April 27, 2017, the holders of Units issued in its Public Offering may elect to separately trade shares of Class A Common Stock and Warrants included in the Units. The Units not separated will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “KAACU.” Shares of Class A Common Stock and the Warrants are trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbols “KAAC” and “KAACW,” respectively. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Warrants trade following the separation.

The Company paid an underwriting discount of 2.0% of the per Unit offering price (or $7,546,422) to the underwriters at the closing of the Public Offering, with an additional fee (the “Deferred Discount”) of 3.5% of the gross offering proceeds (or $13,206,239) payable upon the Company’s completion of an Initial Business Combination. The Deferred Discount will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event the Company completes its Initial Business Combination.

The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 5,250,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any (“Over-Allotment Units”) at the initial public offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. The 2,732,112 Units issued in connection with the over-allotment option are identical to the Units issued in the Public Offering.

Note 4—Related Party Transactions

Founder Shares

During December 2016, the Sponsor purchased 10,062,500 shares of Class B Common Stock (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate price of $25,000, or approximately $0.002 per share. During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Sponsor transferred 40,000 Founder Shares to each of the Company’s three independent directors (or an aggregate of 120,000 Founder Shares) at their original purchase price. As used herein, unless the context otherwise requires, Founder Shares shall be deemed to include the shares of Class A Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof. The Founder Shares are identical to the Class A common stock included in the Units sold in the Public Offering except that the Founder Shares automatically convert into shares of Class A Common Stock at the time of the Company’s Initial Business Combination and are subject to certain transfer restrictions, as described in more detail below. Holders of Founder Shares may also elect to convert their shares of Class B Common Stock into an equal number of shares of Class A Common Stock, subject to adjustment as provided above, at any time. Prior to the Public Offering, the Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to 1,312,500 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters. The

Table of Contents

forfeiture was to be adjusted to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters so that the Founder Shares would represent 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Public Offering. On April 21, 2017, as a result of the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, the Sponsor forfeited 629,472 of its Founder Shares.

The Company’s initial stockholders agreed subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of the Initial Business Combination or (B) subsequent to the Initial Business Combination, (x) if the last sale price of the Company’s Class A Common Stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.

Private Placement Warrants

Upon the closing of the Public Offering on April 4, 2017 and the underwriters’ partial exercise of their over-allotment option on April 21, 2017, the Sponsor purchased an aggregate of 6,364,281 warrants at a price of $1.50 per warrant in a private placement (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.50 per whole warrant ($9,546,422 in the aggregate) in a private placement. Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one whole share of the Company’s Class A Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per share. A portion of the purchase price of the Private Placement Warrants was added to the proceeds from the Public Offering that were deposited into the Trust Account. If the Initial Business Combination is not completed within 24 months from the closing of the Public Offering, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants held in the Trust Account will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. The Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees.

The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Private Placement Warrants until 30 days after the completion of the Initial Business Combination.

Registration Rights

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and Warrants that may be issued upon conversion of working capital loans, if any, are entitled to registration rights (in the case of the Founder Shares, only after conversion of such shares to shares of Class A Common Stock) pursuant to a registration rights agreement. These holders will be entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights.

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and Warrants that may be issued upon conversion of working capital loans will not be able to sell these securities until the termination of the applicable lock-up period for the securities to be registered. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Related Party Loans

On March 21, 2018, the Company’s Sponsor agreed to loan up to $500,000, as needed, to fund working capital needs pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). These loans will be non-interest bearing, and the Company expects to repay the loans at the closing of its Initial Business Combination. At the option of the lender, such loans may be convertible into warrants, at a price of $1.50 per warrant, at the time of our Initial Business Combination. At June 30, 2018, there were $100,000 of borrowings under the Note. At December 31, 2017, there were no outstanding related party loans.

Administrative Services Agreement

Beginning April 2017, the Company agreed to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $5,000 per month for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support. Upon completion of the Initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. Effective January 1, 2018, the Sponsor’s affiliate agreed to waive the monthly fee until the termination of the Company’s Administrative Service Agreement.

Note 5—Stockholders’ Equity

Common Stock

The authorized common stock of the Company includes up to 200,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock and 20,000,000 shares of Class B Common Stock. If the Company enters into an Initial Business Combination, it may (depending on the terms of such an Initial Business Combination) be required to increase the number of shares of Class A Common Stock which the Company is authorized to issue at the same time as the Company’s stockholders vote on the Initial Business Combination, to the extent the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with the Initial Business Combination. Holders of the Company’s common stock are entitled to one vote for each share of common stock. At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, there were 37,732,112 shares of Class A Common Stock issued and outstanding, including 36,156,709 and 36,026,954 shares, respectively, which were subject to redemption at those dates. At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, there were 9,433,028 shares of Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding, respectively.

Preferred Stock

The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.

Note 6—Fair Value Measurements

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques that the Company utilized to determine such fair value. In general, fair values determined by Level 1 inputs utilize quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Fair values determined by Level 2 inputs utilize data points that are observable, such as quoted prices, interest rates and yield curves. Fair values determined by Level 3 inputs are unobservable data points for the asset or liability, and includes situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

References to the “Company,” “us” or “we” refer to Kayne Anderson Acquisition Corp. The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the condensed financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 10-Q including, without limitation, statements under “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” regarding the Company’s financial position, business strategy and the plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. When used in this Form 10-Q, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend” and similar expressions, as they relate to us or the Company’s management, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company’s management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in our filings with the SEC.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on December 12, 2016 as a Delaware corporation and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Initial Business Combination”). We intend to focus our search for a target business in the energy industry. For our purposes, we define the energy industry as companies that own and operate assets that are used in or provided services to the energy sector, including, but not limited to, assets used in exploring, developing, producing, transporting, storing, gathering, processing, fractionating, refining, distributing or marketing of natural gas, natural gas liquids, crude oil or refined products. We intend to effectuate our Initial Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of our public offering (the “Public Offering”) and the sale of warrants in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the Public Offering (the “Private Placement Warrants”), our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

The issuance of additional shares of our stock in a business combination:

 

    may significantly dilute the equity interest of investors, which dilution would increase if the anti-dilution provisions in the Class B common stock resulted in the issuance of shares of Class A common stock on a greater than one-to-one basis upon conversion of the Class B common stock;

 

    may subordinate the rights of holders of our common stock if preferred stock is issued with rights senior to those afforded our common stock;

 

    could cause a change in control if a substantial number of shares of our common stock is issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could result in the resignation or removal of our present officers and directors;

 

    may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us by diluting the stock ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to obtain control of us; and

 

    may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our Class A common stock and/or warrants.

Similarly, if we issue debt securities, it could result in:

 

    default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating revenues after an Initial Business Combination are insufficient to repay our debt obligations;

 

    acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we make all principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain covenants that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves without a waiver or renegotiation of that covenant;

 

    our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the debt security is payable on demand;

 

    our inability to obtain necessary additional financing if the debt security contains covenants restricting our ability to obtain such financing while the debt security is outstanding;

 

    our inability to pay dividends on our common stock;

 

    using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our common stock if declared, our ability to pay expenses, make capital expenditures and acquisitions, and fund other general corporate purposes;

 

    limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our business and in the industry in which we operate;

 

    increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation;

 

    limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, and execution of our strategy; and

 

    other purposes and other disadvantages compared to our competitors who have less debt.

We expect to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our business combination plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to raise capital or to complete our Initial Business Combination will be successful.

Results of Operations and Known Trends or Future Events

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any operating revenue to date. Our only activities since inception relate to our formation, the Public Offering which was consummated on April 4, 2017 and efforts directed toward locating a suitable Initial Business Combination. We will not generate any operating revenue until after completion of an Initial Business Combination, at the earliest. Prior to such time, we will generate non-operating income in form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents. We incur increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting and auditing compliance), as well as expenses as we conduct due diligence on prospective business combination candidates.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, we had a net income of $582,842 and $1,297,553, respectively, which consisted primarily of investment income from the Trust Account of $1,479,003 and $2,650,263, respectively. This income was partially offset by general and administrative expenses of $546,061 and $714,328, respectively, franchise tax expense of $50,012 and $100,025, respectively and income tax expense of $300,088 and $538,357, respectively.

Table of Contents

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, we had a net loss of $733,270, which consisted primarily of general and administrative expenses of $1,063,946, franchise tax expense of $43,000 and income tax expense of $170,349. These expenses were partially offset by investment income received from the Trust Account of $544,025.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

In April 2017, upon the completing the Public Offering (including the sale of Over-Allotment Units) and the Private Placement Warrants, $377,321,120 was deposited in a trust account with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee (the “Trust Account”). Other than the withdrawal of investment income to pay taxes, the proceeds held in the Trust Account will remain in the Trust Account until the earlier (i) the completion of the Initial Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of any shares of Class A Common Stock included in the Units sold in the Public Offering that have been properly tendered in connection with a stockholder vote to amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to modify the substance or timing of our obligation to redeem 100% of such shares of Class A Common Stock if we do not complete the Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Public Offering; and (iii) the redemption of 100% of the shares of Class A Common Stock included in the Units sold in the Public Offering if the Company is unable to complete an Initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Public Offering (subject to the requirements of law).

On March 21, 2018, our Sponsor agreed to loan us up to $500,000, as needed, to fund our working capital needs. These loans are non-interest bearing, and we expect to repay the loans at the closing of our Initial Business Combination. At the option of the lender, such loans may be convertible into warrants, at a price of $1.50 per warrant, at the time of our Initial Business Combination. Such warrants will be identical to private placement warrants issued simultaneously with the consummation of our initial public offering. As of June 30, 2018, we had $100,000 borrowed under the unsecured promissory note. As of June 30, 2018, we had $48,630 in cash held outside the Trust Account which may be used to pay for business, legal and accounting due diligence on prospective acquisitions and continuing general and administrative expenses. In addition, investment income on the funds held in the Trust Account may be released to pay our franchise and income taxes. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, we paid $280,050 of franchise taxes and $834,463 estimated federal income tax with funds held in the Trust Account. At June 30, 2018, $3,391,495 is available to pay any additional taxes.

To the extent that we require additional funds to operate our business prior to the consummation of an Initial Business Combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to loan us funds as may be required. If we complete our Initial Business Combination, we would repay such additional loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to us. In the event that our Initial 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 to repay such loaned amounts. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans, including loans made under the March 2018 agreement 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 the exercise price, exercisability and exercise period.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements; Commitments and Contractual Obligations

As of June 30, 2018, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K and did not have any commitments or contractual obligations. In connection with our Public Offering, we entered into an Administrative Services Agreement, by and between us and KA Fund Advisors, LLC an affiliate of our Sponsor. We have agreed to pay KA Fund Advisors, LLC a total of $5,000 per month for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support. Effective January 1, 2018, KA Fund Advisors, LLC agreed to waive the monthly fee until the termination date of our Administrative Services Agreement.

The underwriters are entitled to underwriting discounts and commissions of 5.5%, of which 2.0% ($7,546,422) were paid at the closing of the Public Offering and 3.5% ($13,206,239) was deferred and placed in the Trust Account. The deferred discount and commissions will become payable to the underwriters only on completion of the Initial Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

JOBS Act

On April 5, 2012, the JOBS Act was signed into law. The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We qualify as an “emerging growth company” and under the JOBS Act are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with

 

13


Table of Contents

new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As a result, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

This management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in our financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to fair value of financial instrument and accrued expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

The net proceeds of our initial public offering and the sale of the private placement warrants held in the trust account are invested in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in company reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2018.
