In 2020, the Company paid $1.8 million for 599,999 Class A Units and 2,500,000 Class B Units of Cardinal Venture Holdings LLC (“CVH”). The Company is a member of CVH. CVH owns certain interests in KINS Capital, LLC, the sponsor entity (the “Sponsor”) to KINS Technology Group Inc., a Delaware corporation and special purpose acquisition company with which the Company entered into the Business Combination (see “Enterprise Apps Spin-off and Business Combination” under Note 1 above and “Recent Events - Enterprise Apps Spin-off and Business Combination” section under Part I, Item 2 herein for more details). The $1.8 million purchase price was paid on October 12, 2020 and therefore is the date the purchase of the Units was closed. On December 16, 2020, the Company increased its capital contribution by $0.7 million in exchange for an additional 700,000 Class B Units. The capital contribution was used by CVH to fund the Sponsor's purchase of securities in KINS. The underlying subscription agreement provides that each Class A Unit and each Class B Unit represents the right of the Company to receive any distributions made by the Sponsor on account of the Class A Interests and Class B Interests, respectively, of the Sponsor.
The Company generally records its share of earnings in its equity method investments using a three-month lag methodology and within net investment income. During the period January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 and January 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023, CVH had no operating results as CVH is a holding company. CVH only contains units and has not been allocated shares of KINS, therefore CVH is not allocating any portion of income or expense incurred by KINS. As such, there was no share of earnings recognized by the Company in its statement of operations on its proportional equity investment.
