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.
