Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of common stock, and each ten rights entitle the holder thereof to receive one share of common stock at the closing of a business combination. Each warrant will become exercisable on the later of 30 days after the completion of an Initial Business Combination and 12 months from the closing of the offering, and will expire five years after the completion of an Initial Business Combination, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. In accordance with Rule 13d-3(d)(1) regarding securities which represent a right to acquire an underlying security, each Unit has been reported herein as representing the beneficial ownership of one (1) share of common stock. .

Ari Glass is the Managing Member of the Adviser. Accordingly, for the purposes of Reg. Section 240.13d-3, the reporting persons herein may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 1,564,375 shares of common stock, or 9.71% of the 16,114,500 shares of common stock that were issued and outstanding following the issuance made pursuant to the Prospectus.

 

This report shall not be deemed an admission that the Adviser, the Fund or any other person is the beneficial owner of the securities reported herein for purposes of Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or for any other purpose. Each of the reporting persons herein disclaims beneficial ownership of the Shares reported herein except to the extent of the reporting person’s pecuniary interest therein.
