CUSTOMER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A SOLICITATION FOR SUPPORT OF THE TRANSACTION. PLEASE SEE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND WHERE TO FIND IT
1. What is a SPAC?
A SPAC is a special purpose
acquisition company with no commercial operations that is formed strictly to raise capital through an initial public offering (IPO) for the purpose of acquiring an existing company. Also known as blank check companies, SPACs
have been around for decades. Investors in SPACs can range from well-known private equity funds to the general public.
2. Why did Rockley decide to go
public via a SPAC?
The proposed transaction with SC Health will allow Rockley to raise a substantial amount of capital and position the business to
accelerate its delivery of truly beneficial technology for the benefit of mankind in an era when health related matters are of utmost concern. We are excited to have been able to achieve this milestone, and we would not be in this position today
without the hard work of everyone at Rockley. We believe this path will significantly enhance our ability to scale our technology and operations and accelerate our growth.
3. Why SC Health and what does SC Health bring besides the listing?
SC Health is highly connected in the provision of healthcare services and can assist us in the adoption of the technology throughout the healthcare industry.
Better continuous health monitoring stands to help drive efficiency and savings for health insurers; health providers provide better care and treatment at lower cost and, most importantly, enable people to enjoy better health.
4. How does the announcement change Rockley as a company?
Rockley has a unique photonics platform and we have chosen to exploit this differently in different markets.
In the health, wellness and
healthcare markets we are building a full stack solution, but this is a B2B model. The delivery of healthcare using our technology stack is our customers business, while we provide the enabling elements in the full stack, including the
monitoring device (e.g., our tiny module in a customers smart watch) and unique ML and AI based analytics that behind the scenes process our rich spectral data to enable health insights and diagnostic support to be delivered by our customers
to their consumers/patients.
entertainment, vital medical research, and other aspects of daily life are in many ways connected to hyperscale data centers, which are the nerve centers of the digital economy. To satisfy their bandwidth demands, these data centers require
cost-effective, power-efficient optical communication links. We believe that our silicon photonics platform is well positioned to address the burgeoning market for high-bandwidth optical transceiver products.
chipset provides 400Gb/s of capacity (four lanes of 100Gb/s each) and is targeted at the market for
Ethernet optics (pluggable transceiver modules) in
and OSFP form factors. This is forecast to be the largest segment within the datacenter optics market
for the coming years. The 800G-2DR4 chipset addresses the emerging market for 800Gb/s transceiver modules. This market is expected to take off when switch ASICs with 100Gb/s serdes start being deployed. Whether incorporated in pluggable optical
transceiver modules or in
optics, we believe hyperscale data centers will benefit from the unique advantages that our silicon photonics platform has to offer.
We believe that our silicon photonic platform is
ideally suited for delivering sensing solutions needed for machine perception and interrogation at depth, which is increasingly required in industrial automation, robotic vision, including surgical applications, safety, and autonomous applications.
Although we believe the inflection point for LiDAR and the automotive market may be approaching, we plan to leverage our core technology readiness and economies of scale from our consumer business to position ourselves for this potential market
5. Will there be impact to our current agreements with Rockley?
No there will be no impact. In fact, the capital raised will be put towards accelerating time to market of our first sensing modules and applications.
6. Will there be any changes to our points of contact at Rockley?
At present, we dont anticipate any changes in your points of contact. As we get closer to the closing of the transaction, we will provide any updated
information and address any questions you may have.
7. Will the name of the company change?
No, Rockley will continue to operate as Rockley Photonics Limited. However, after the transaction, it is anticipated that Rockley will operate as a wholly
owned subsidiary of a holding company, Rockley Photonics Holdings Limited.
8. Does this structure change how we will do business with Rockley?
The post-transaction structure should not impact how you conduct business with Rockley. As noted, there should be no impact on your current
agreements with us and Rockley will continue as an operating company after the transaction.
9. Will Rockleys stock be publicly traded?
The transaction is structured such that Rockley will become a wholly owned subsidiary of a holding company, Rockley Photonics Holdings Limited. It is
anticipated that the holding company will be the publicly traded entity after the transaction closes, with the stock trading under the ticker symbol RKLY.
10. How much additional capital will the transaction bring to Rockley?
SC Health and Rockley have raised $150 million in equity from institutional investors. This capital raise is subject to completion of the overall
transaction. The funds raised will be combined with up to $93.8 million (net of redemptions through April 16, 2021) that SC Health had already raised from its existing investors (this capital has been maintained in a dedicated trust account
since SC Healths initial public offering). Any further redemptions by SC Healths existing investors will reduce the amount of the funds available in that trust account for general corporate purposes of the combined company.
11. Will the transaction enable Rockley to accelerate its product development timelines?
We are heavily invested in and focused on meeting our current product development timelines. While we cannot predict the impact of the transaction on our
product development timelines, we expect the capital raised will be put towards accelerating time to market of our first sensing modules and applications.
12. Will Rockleys attention and resources be diverted from its business during the transaction process?
We remain intently focused on our business and our commitment to developing products to address our customer demands and meeting our product timelines.
13. Does the transaction alter Rockleys overall plans and strategy?
We remain committed to our stated growth plans and objectives and believe the transaction and the anticipated capital raise will better position us to achieve
14. Do you anticipate any transition issues in connection with the transaction that would impact our commercial relationship
We remain laser-focused on our business and our customers and on delivering results and we do not intend the transition to detract from
this focus. We do not anticipate that the transition to becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of a publicly traded entity will impact our commercial agreements with customers.
15. When is the transaction closing?
We are targeting
the transaction closing toward end of Q2, subject of course to customary closing conditions, including required shareholder approvals.
happens if the transaction does not close and will that impact Rockleys ability to achieve its objectives?
If the transaction does not close,
we would not receive the capital raise and would remain as a private operating company. We intend to remain focused on our business, our customers, and our product development efforts and to explore additional financing alternatives as needed.
