Registration Rights


The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants that may be issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. 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 “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to consummation of a Business Combination. The Company bears the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.


Underwriters Agreement


In connection with the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 2,625,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments. On November 16, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and purchased an additional 2,495,246 Units at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating additional gross proceeds of $24,952,460 to the Company.


The underwriters received a cash underwriting discount of $0.20 per Unit, or $3,999,049 in the aggregate, which became payable at the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the underwriters were entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $6,998,336 in the aggregate. In July and October 2022, the deferred underwriting fee was waived in full by Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC Securities, Inc., and BofA Securities, Inc., the underwriters. Upon IPO, a portion of the entire deferred underwriting fee was allocated to public warrants, which resulted in a charge to the statement of operations. Therefore, a portion of this waived deferred underwriting fee was recorded as a gain in the statements of operations in the amount of $342,975 for the year ended December 31, 2022. The remaining $6,655,361 was recorded as a reduction to accumulated deficit as of December 31, 2022.
