Note 4 — Initial Public Offering


On June 2, 2011, the Company sold 5,000,000 Units, at an Offering price of $10.00 per unit (the “Offering”), generating gross proceeds of $50,000,000. Each Unit consists of one ordinary share, $0.001 par value, of the Company and one Redeemable Purchase Warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase from the Company one ordinary share at an exercise price of $12.00 commencing upon the completion of a Business Combination and expiring five years from the consummation of a Business Combination. The Company may redeem the Warrants, at a price of $.01 per Warrant upon 30 days’ notice while the Warrants are exercisable, only in the event that the last sale price of the ordinary shares is at least $18.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30 trading day period ending on the third day prior to the date on which notice of redemption is given. In accordance with the warrant agreement relating to the Warrants to be sold and issued in the Offering, the Company is only required to use its best efforts to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement covering the Warrants. The Company will not be obligated to deliver securities, and there are no contractual penalties for failure to deliver securities, if a registration statement is not effective at the time of exercise. Additionally, in the event that a registration is not effective at the time of exercise, the holder of such Warrant shall not be entitled to exercise such Warrant and in no event (whether in the case of a registration statement not being effective or otherwise) will the Company be required to net cash settle the warrant exercise. Consequently, the Warrants may expire unexercised and unredeemed.


In connection with the Offering the Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to 750,000 additional Units solely to cover over-allotments. On July 28, 2011 the underwriters did not exercise the over-allotment option and it expired.


The total underwriting fee will be 7.0%; 2.5% was paid upon completion of the Offering and 4.5% comprised of (1) 2.25% of the gross proceeds of the Offering reduced by the aggregate redemption price of the public shares redeemed in connection with the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination, up to $1,125,000 will be automatically released to the underwriters upon completion of the Company’s initial Business Combination, and (2) up to 2.25% of the gross proceeds of this offering, up to a maximum of $1,125,000 payable to the underwriters at the Company’s sole discretion.


On June 2, 2011, certain of the initial stockholders purchased an aggregate of 3,966,667 warrants (the “Insider Warrants”) from the Company in a private placement pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Insider Warrants were sold for a total purchase price of $2,975,000 or $0.75 per warrant. The private placement took place simultaneously with the consummation of the Offering. All of the proceeds received from this purchase were placed into the Trust Account. The Insider Warrants are identical to the Warrants in the Offering except that the Insider Warrants may be exercisable for cash or on a cashless basis, at the holder’s option, and will not be redeemable by the Company, in each case so long as such securities are held by the Insiders or their affiliates. Additionally, all Insiders have waived their rights to receive distributions upon the Company’s liquidation prior to a Business Combination with respect to the Insider Shares. Furthermore, all Insiders have agreed that the Insider Warrants will not be sold or transferred until 30 days after the Company has completed its initial Business Combination.
