Risks and Uncertainties


United States and global markets are experiencing volatility and disruption following the geopolitical instability resulting from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict and the recent escalation of the Israel-Hamas conflict. In response to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) deployed additional military forces to eastern Europe, and the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have announced various sanctions and restrictive actions against Russia, Belarus and related individuals and entities, including the removal of certain financial institutions from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) payment system. Certain countries, including the United States, have also provided and may continue to provide military aid or other assistance to Ukraine and to Israel, increasing geopolitical tensions among a number of nations. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the escalation of the Israel-Hamas conflict and the resulting measures that have been taken, and could be taken in the future, by NATO, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Israel and its neighboring states and other countries have created global security concerns that could have a lasting impact on regional and global economies. Although the length and impact of the ongoing conflicts are highly unpredictable, they could lead to market disruptions, including significant volatility in commodity prices, credit and capital markets, as well as supply chain interruptions and increased cyber-attacks against U.S. companies. Additionally, any resulting sanctions could adversely affect the global economy and financial markets and lead to instability and lack of liquidity in capital markets.


Any of the above-mentioned factors, or any other negative impact on the global economy, capital markets or other geopolitical conditions resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the escalation of the Israel-Hamas conflict and subsequent sanctions or related actions, could adversely affect the Company’s search for an initial Business Combination and any target business with which we may ultimately consummate an initial Business Combination.


Registration Rights


The holders of the Founder Shares, the Private Placement Warrants and any warrants that may be issued upon conversion of any Working Capital Loans (and any underlying Class A Ordinary Shares) have registration rights to require the Company to register a sale of any of its securities held by them pursuant to a registration rights, dated as of November 20, 2023. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggyback” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of an initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.


Underwriting Agreement


The underwriters had a 45-day option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to an additional 2,250,000 Units to cover over-allotments, if any. On November 24, 2023, simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters elected to partially exercise the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 2,000,000 Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit. The underwriters determined to forfeit the remaining 250,000 Units.


The underwriters were entitled to a cash underwriting fee of $0.15 per Unit, or $2,550,000 in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per Unit, or $5,950,000 in the aggregate, will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting fee. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes an initial Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement for the Initial Public Offering. Up to $0.30 per Unit of the $0.35 at the sole discretion of the Company may be reallocated for expenses in connection with its initial Business Combination and working capital needs post the initial Business Combination. Any such reduction of the deferred underwriting fee shall reduce proportionately the deferred underwriting fee to the underwriters and will also reduce proportionately the amount payable to Roth Capital Partners, LLC (“Roth”) under the consulting and advisory fee agreement described below.


Advisory Agreement


On November 20, 2023, the Company engaged Roth to provide consulting and advisory services in connection with the Initial Public Offering. Roth represented the Company’s interests only, was independent of the underwriters and was not a party to any securities purchase agreement with the Company, the underwriters, or investors in relation to the Initial Public Offering. Roth did not participate (within the meaning of FINRA Rule 5110(j)(16)) in the Initial Public Offering; acted as an independent financial adviser (within the meaning of FINRA Rule 5110(j)(9)), and it did not act as an underwriter in connection with the Initial Public Offering. Roth’s fee was $510,000, payable upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. A deferred fee of up to $1,190,000 will be paid to Roth at the closing of the Business Combination. This deferred fee will only be paid to Roth if the Company completes a Business Combination. Roth’s fees in both cases will be offset from the underwriting fees already recorded between the cash underwriting fee of $2,550,000 and the deferred underwriting fee of $5,950,000, resulting in no additional incremental fee already recorded by the Company.
