We are a blank check company incorporated as a Delaware corporation on September 29, 2020 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar business combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our business combination using cash from the proceeds of the initial public offering and the sale of the private placement warrants, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

All activity through September 30, 2021 relates to our formation, initial public offering, and search for a prospective initial business combination target.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from inception through September 30, 2021 were organizational activities and those necessary to prepare for the initial public offering, described below and after our initial public offering, identify a target company for a business combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our business combination. We expect to generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on marketable securities held after the initial public offering. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $140,520, which consisted primarily of a non-cash gain from the change in fair value of the Warrants of $35,200 and $178,741 related to formation costs, costs related to our initial public offering and franchise tax.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $388,124, which consisted primarily of a non-cash gain from the change in fair value of the Warrants of $95,700 and $491,166 related to formation costs, costs related to our initial public offering and franchise tax.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Until the consummation of the initial public offering, our only source of liquidity was an initial purchase of common stock by the Sponsor and loans from our Sponsor.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $907,061. Net loss of $388,124 was affected by the non-cash gain on the change in fair value of the Warrants of $95,700, interest earned on investment held in the Trust Account of $7,342 and changes in operating assets and liabilities, which used $415,895 of cash from operating activities.

As of September 30, 2021, we had cash and marketable securities of $200,007,342 held in the Trust Account. We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less taxes paid and deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our initial Business Combination.

On February 17, 2021, the Company sold 17,500,000 Units pursuant to its initial public offering, at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock and one-half of one warrant to purchase one share of common stock ("Public Warrant").

On February 25, 2021, the underwriters exercised the over-allotment option in part and purchased an additional 2,500,000 Units, generating an aggregate of gross proceeds of $25,000,000 and incurred $500,000 in cash underwriting fees.

Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Sponsor and EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. ("EarlyBirdCapital"), the underwriters of the IPO, purchased in a private placement, an aggregate of 500,000 units (the "Private Units") at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit, for an aggregate purchase price of $5,000,000. Each Private Unit consists of one share of common stock and one-half of one warrant. Among the Private Units, 470,000 were purchased by the Sponsor and 30,000 were purchased by EarlyBirdCapital.

On February 25, 2021, simultaneously with the closing of the over-allotment the Company consummated the private placement of an aggregate of 50,000 Private Units at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit, to the Sponsor and EarlyBirdCapital., generating total gross proceeds of $500,000.

Following the initial public offering and the private placement, a total of $200,000,000 was placed in the trust account. We incurred $4,611,216 in transaction costs, including $4,000,000 of underwriting discount, the fair value of the representative shares of $522 and $611,738 of other cash offering costs.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the trust account to complete our business combination. We may withdraw interest to pay taxes. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

We intend to use the funds held outside the trust account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a business combination.

To fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a business combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a business combination, we may repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the trust account released to us. In the event that a business combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the trust account to repay such loaned amounts, but no proceeds from our trust account would be used for such repayment. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants, at a price of $0.90 per warrant, at the option of the lender.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating a business combination are less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our business combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete our business combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon consummation of our business combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such business combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our business combination. If we are unable to complete our business combination because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the trust account. In addition, following our business combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2021.

Contractual Obligations

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities.

Critical Accounting Policies

Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 480 "Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity." Common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company's control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders' equity. The Company's common stock feature certain redemption rights that is considered to be outside of the Company's control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, common stock subject to possible redemption is presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders' equity section of the Company's balance sheet.

Derivative warrant liabilities

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments, including issued stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to ASC 480 and ASC 815-15. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

Recent Accounting Standards

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our condensed financial statements.
