Simultaneously with the closing of the initial public offering, the Company concluded the sale of 1,045,000 units, at a price of $ 10.00 per unit within the framework of a private placement in favor of certain holders of founding shares of the Company (“initial shareholders”) and EarlybirdCapital, Inc., the representative of the underwriters in the initial public offering (“EBC”), generating gross proceeds of $ 10,450,000 (“Private units”).

$ 15,660,526 in transaction costs, including $ 5,520,000 in cash subscription fees, 9,660,000 in deferred subscription fees, and $ 480,526 other supply costs.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account (excluding deferred sales charges and interest to pay taxes) to acquire one or more target businesses and to pay our expenses. relating to it. To the extent that our common shares are used in whole or in part to affect our business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account as well as any other unspent net proceeds will be used as working capital to fund our operations. the target company or companies.

Until a business combination is completed, the Company will use funds held outside the trust account to pay existing accounts payable, identify and assess potential acquisition candidates, perform business due diligence on potential target companies, travel to and from offices, factories or similar locations of potential target companies, review corporate documents and material agreements of potential target companies, select the target company to acquire and structure, negotiate and finalize the business combination. If the Company’s estimates of the costs of identifying a target business, exercising in-depth due diligence and negotiating a Business Combination are lower than the actual amount required to do so, the Company may dispose of insufficient funds to operate a business prior to a Combination. In addition, the Company may need to obtain additional financing either to complete a Business Combination or because it is obligated to buy back a significant number of its public shares when completing a Business Combination. , in which case the Company may issue additional securities or contract debts in connection with this business combination. In order to finance the transaction costs associated with a business combination, our officers, directors, original shareholders and their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, lend funds to us as required.

In the event that a business combination is not closed, the Company may use any funds available to it outside the trust account to repay the amounts so loaned.

Critical Accounting Policies


The preparation of condensed financial statements and related information in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the revenues and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates. There have been no material changes in our critical accounting policies, as disclosed in Form 8-K and the final prospectus that we have filed with the SECOND to December 1, 2021 and 23 November 2021, respectively.


Recent Accounting Standards


In august 2020, the FASB published the update of accounting standards (“ASU”) n ° 2020-06, Debt – Debt with conversion and other options (sub-section 470-20) and Derivatives and hedging – Contracts in equity of the entity (sub-item 815-40): Recognition of convertible instruments and contracts in the equity of an entity (“ASU 2020-06”), which simplifies the recognition of convertible instruments by eliminating the main separation models required by current GAAP. ASU also removes certain terms of settlement that are required for equity-related contracts to qualify except for the scope of derivatives, and it simplifies the calculation of diluted earnings per share in certain areas. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 on July 14, 2021 (creation) using a modified retrospective method for the transition. The adoption of ASU did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flow.

Management of the Company does not believe that other accounting standards recently issued, but not yet in effect, if currently adopted, would have a material impact on the accompanying financial statements.
