The description of the common shares and warrants set forth under the heading “Description of TMC Securities” in the Registrant’s prospectus forming a part of its Registration Statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-255118), originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 8, 2021, as thereafter amended and supplemented from time to time (the “Registration Statement”), to which this Form 8-A relates is incorporated by reference herein. Any form of prospectus or prospectus supplement to the Registration Statement that includes such descriptions and that are subsequently filed are hereby also incorporated by reference herein.
Item 2. Exhibits.
Under the Instructions as to Exhibits with respect to Form 8-A, no exhibits are required to be filed because no other securities of the Registrant are registered on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC and the securities registered hereby are not being registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
