The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this Form 10-K. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on November 3, 2021 as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. Our efforts to identify a prospective initial business combination target will not be limited to a particular industry, sector or geographic region. While we may pursue an initial business combination opportunity in any industry or sector, we intend to capitalize on the ability of our management team to identify and combine with a business or businesses that can benefit from our management team's established global relationships and operating experience.

We intend to effectuate our initial business combination using cash from the proceeds of the initial public offering and the private placement of the private placement warrants, the proceeds of the sale of our shares in connection with our initial business combination (pursuant to forward purchase agreements or backstop agreements we may enter into following the consummation of the initial public offering or otherwise), shares issued to the owners of the target, debt issued to bank or other lenders or the owners of the target, other securities issuances, or a combination of the foregoing.

The issuance of additional shares in connection with a business combination to the owners of the target or other investors:

     •    may significantly dilute the equity interest of investors in the initial
          public offering, which dilution would increase if the anti-dilution
          provisions in the Founder Shares resulted in the issuance of Class A
          ordinary shares on a greater than one-to-one basis upon conversion of the
          Founder Shares;



     •    may subordinate the rights of holders of Class A ordinary shares if
          preferred shares are issued with rights senior to those afforded our
          Class A ordinary shares;



     •    could cause a change in control if a substantial number of our Class A
          ordinary shares are issued, which may affect, among other things, our
          ability to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could
          result in the resignation or removal of our present officers and
          directors;



     •    may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us
          by diluting the share ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to
          obtain control of us; and



     •    may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our Class A ordinary
          shares and/or warrants.

Similarly, if we issue debt securities or otherwise incur significant debt to bank or other lenders or the owners of a target, it could result in:

     •    default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating revenues after an
          initial business combination are insufficient to repay our debt
          obligations;



     •    acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we make
          all principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain
          covenants that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or
          reserves without a waiver or renegotiation of that covenant;



     •    our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if
          the debt security is payable on demand;



     •    our inability to obtain necessary additional financing if the debt
          security contains covenants restricting our ability to obtain such
          financing while the debt security is outstanding;



  •   our inability to pay dividends on our Class A ordinary shares;



     •    using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and
          interest on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends
          on our Class A ordinary shares if declared, expenses, capital
          expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes;



     •    limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in
          our business and in the industry in which we operate;



     •    increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry
          and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation;
          and



     •    limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses,
          capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution
          of our strategy and other purposes and other disadvantages compared to
          our competitors who have less debt.

As indicated in the accompanying financial statements, at December 31, 2021, we had no cash and deferred offering costs of $787,938. Further, we expect to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our initial business combination. We cannot assure you that our plans to complete our initial business combination will be successful.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities since inception have been organizational activities and those necessary to prepare for the initial public offering. We will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of our initial business combination. We have generated non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents after the initial public offering. There has been no significant change in our financial or trading position and no material adverse change has occurred since the date of our audited financial statements. We expect to incur increased 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 period from November 3, 2021 (inception) through December 31, 2021, we had a net loss of $5,000, which consisted of formation and operating costs of $5,000.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2021, we had no cash. Our liquidity needs had been satisfied prior to the completion of the initial public offering through receipt of a $25,000 capital contribution from our Sponsor in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares and a $300,000 loan from our Sponsor, which was paid in full on January 11, 2022.

On January 10, 2022, the Company consummated the initial public offering of 75,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit and a private sale of 11,733,333 private placement warrants at a purchase price of $1.50 per warrant. A total of $750,000,000 comprised of $735,000,000 of the proceeds from the initial public offering (which amount includes $26,250,000 of the underwriters' deferred discount) and $15,000,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the private placement warrants was placed in the trust account. The proceeds are invested only in U.S. government treasury obligations with a maturity of 185 days of less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the trust account (excluding deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our initial business combination. We may withdraw interest to pay our taxes, if any. Our annual income tax obligations will depend on the amount of interest and other income earned on the amounts held in the trust account. We expect the interest earned on the amount in the trust account will be sufficient to pay our income taxes. To the extent that our equity or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial 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 will use the funds held outside the trust account to primarily 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.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business prior to our initial business combination. However, if our estimates of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating an initial 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 initial business combination. In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial 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 our initial business combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our initial 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. Such loans may be convertible into private placement warrants of the post business combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of the lender. Such warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants. The terms of such loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. Prior to the completion of our initial business combination, we do not expect to seek loans from parties other than our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor as we do not believe third parties will be willing to loan such funds and provide a waiver against any and all rights to seek access to funds in our trust account.



                                       50

We expect our primary liquidity requirements during that period to include approximately $416,000 for legal, accounting, due diligence, travel and other expenses associated with structuring, negotiating and documenting successful business combinations, $360,000 for administrative and support services, and approximately $224,000 for Nasdaq and other regulatory fees and approximately $850,000 for director and officer liability insurance premiums. We will also reimburse an affiliate of our Sponsor for office space and administrative services provided to members of our management team in an amount not to exceed $15,000 per month in the event such space and/or services are utilized and we do not pay a third party directly for such services.

These amounts are estimates and may differ materially from our actual expenses. In addition, we could use a portion of the funds not being placed in trust to pay commitment fees for financing, fees to consultants to assist us with our search for a target business or as a down payment or to fund a "no-shop" provision (a provision designed to keep target businesses from "shopping" around for transactions with other companies or investors on terms more favorable to such target businesses) with respect to a particular proposed business combination, although we do not have any current intention to do so. If we entered into an agreement where we paid for the right to receive exclusivity from a target business, the amount that would be used as a down payment or to fund a "no-shop" provision would be determined based on the terms of the specific business combination and the amount of our available funds at the time. Our forfeiture of such funds (whether as a result of our breach or otherwise) could result in our not having sufficient funds to continue searching for, or conducting due diligence with respect to, prospective target businesses.

Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing to complete our initial business combination, either because the transaction requires more cash than is available from the proceeds held in our trust account or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon completion of the business combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such business combination. In addition, we intend to target businesses with enterprise values that are greater than we could acquire with the net proceeds of the initial public offering and the sale of the private placement units, and, as a result, if the cash portion of the purchase price exceeds the amount available from the trust account, net of amounts needed to satisfy any redemptions by public shareholders, we may be required to seek additional financing to complete such proposed initial business combination. We may also obtain financing prior to the closing of our initial business combination to fund our working capital needs and transaction costs in connection with our search for and completion of our initial business combination. There is no limitation on our ability to raise funds through the issuance of equity or equity-linked securities or through loans, advances or other indebtedness in connection with our initial business combination, including pursuant to forward purchase agreements or backstop agreements we may enter into following consummation of the initial public offering. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our initial business combination. If we are unable to complete our initial 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 initial business combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.
