Note 5 — Investments Held in Trust


Substantially all of the net proceeds from the Offering are intended to be generally applied toward the Business Combination. Management agreed to place the net proceeds from the Offering into the Trust Account until the earlier of (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) liquidation of the Company. The placing of funds in the Trust Account may not protect those funds from third party claims against the Company. Although the Company will seek to have all vendors, prospective target businesses or other entities it engages execute agreements with the Company waiving any right in or to any monies held in the Trust Account, there is no guarantee that they will execute such agreements.


A total of $50,250,000, which includes $47,275,000 of the net proceeds from the Public Offering and $2,975,000 from the private placement, was placed in the Trust Account.


As of December 31, 2011, investment securities in the Company’s Trust Account consist of $50,255,577 in U.S. government treasury bills (the “T-Bills”) with a maturity of March 1, 2012 and $2,280 of cash. The carrying amount, excluding accrued interest income, gross unrealized holding gains and fair value of held-to-maturity securities at December 31, 2011 are as follows:


    Fair Value

United States Treasury Securities     50,253,297       195             50,253,492  
Total Investments Held in Trust   $ 50,255,577     $ 195     $     $ 50,255,772  


The Company’s T-Bills had an originally maturity date of September 1, 2011. Upon maturity, the Company recognized $2,198 in interest income and reinvested the proceeds in six-month T-Bills with a maturity date of March 1, 2012. As of December 31, 2011, the Company has recognized $3,378 of interest income related to the T-Bills with $1,703 of the unamortized discount to be recognized over the remaining life of the securities.
