Management

Our Management Team Our management team is led by Matthew Hong, our Chairman nominee and the former Chief Operating Officer of Turner Sports, and seasoned executives Thomas Bushey, our Chief Executive Officer and director, and Kenneth King, our Chief Financial Officer and director. Mr. Bushey and Mr. King have decades of experience identifying, acquiring, investing in and operating businesses, and provide depth of knowledge in capital markets. Over the course of their careers, they have developed an extensive and broad network of business operators, entrepreneurs, corporate officers, board members, family office principals, investment bankers and institutional investors. The board is joined by widely respected consumer internet and media veterans Jennifer Vescio, Global Head of Business Development at Uber Technologies Inc., and Teddy Zee, a well-known Hollywood television and film producer. Together, the team has a history of focused, flexible and patient capital investments and operational experience in consumer internet and media companies that have significant potential for long-term value creation. Supporting the management team and board of directors are a deep bench of advisors who we expect to play a critical role in widening the reach and operational expertise of the group. Our advisory board includes Kenneth Ng who has a track record in special purchase acquisition companies (“SPACs”) with Bridgetown Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: BTWN) and Malacca Straits Acquisition Company Limited (Nasdaq: MLAC), Ted Seides, the founder of Capital Allocators LLC who hosts the Capital Allocators podcast, serves as an advisor to allocators and asset managers, helps asset managers convey their story through private podcasts, and educates investors, and Katie Soo, Senior Vice President at HBO Max who brings deep operational expertise in technology and media to the team. We believe our team’s hands-on experience in SPACs will enable us to deliver a smooth and swift process in the de-spac process, including target selection, negotiation, transaction structuring, capital raising and merger execution. Past performance of our management team is not a guarantee either (i) that we will be able to identify a suitable candidate for our initial business combination, or (ii) of success with respect to any business combination we may consummate. You should not rely on the historical performance record of our management team as indicative of our future performance. Additionally, in the course of their respective careers, members of our management team have been involved in businesses and deals that were unsuccessful. Our officers and directors have no experience with special purpose acquisition companies. In addition, our officers and directors may have conflicts of interest with other entities to which they owe fiduciary or contractual obligations with respect to initial business combination opportunities. For a list of our officers and directors and entities for which a conflict of interest may or does exist between such persons and the company, as well as the priority and preference that such entity has with respect to performance of obligations and presentation of business opportunities to us, please refer to the table and subsequent explanatory paragraph under “Management — Conflicts of Interest”. 2 Our Business Strategy & Competitive Strengths We intend to focus our search for an initial business combination with private companies that have compelling unit economics combined with a clear path to positive operating cash flow. Our selection process is expected to leverage a unique set of relationships with proven deal-sourcing capabilities to provide us with a strong pipeline of potential targets. We expect to distinguish ourselves with our ability to: Leverage our Extensive Network of Relationships to Create a Significant Pipeline Acquisition Opportunities. We believe the combination of our officers’, directors’ and advisors’ broad investment and operating experience in addition to our ability to access a deep network of public and private enterprises, experienced operators, restructuring advisors, attorneys, accountants, family offices, hedge funds, and private equity firms will enable us to identify and evaluate compelling target businesses. Our officers and directors all remain active in identifying special opportunities and situations where there are clear catalysts for value transformation, solid growth trajectory and ability to scale beyond the domestic market. Access a Wide Range of Global Opportunities. We believe the diverse, international experiences of our management team, advisors and sponsor will provide us access to opportunities across multiple geographies. Our management team and advisors have previously invested in and built companies in North America, Europe and Asia, which offers additional growth vectors to a North American target and further areas to source potential follow on targets. Employ a Rigorous Systematic Process of Identifying Target Companies and Acquiring a Business that will Be Well-Received by the Public Markets. We believe that our management’s strong M&A and investment track record in both private and public markets, combined with extensive public market trading experience, will provide a distinct advantage for identifying, valuing and completing a business combination that will meet our investors’ expectations. Provide an Alternative Path to Becoming Public. We believe our structure will make us an attractive business combination partner to prospective target businesses that desire to become a publicly listed company. A merger with us will offer a target business an alternative path to a public listing rather than the traditional initial public offering process. We believe that target businesses may favor this alternative, which offers greater certainty of execution than the traditional initial public offering and allows for additional capital to be raised in connection with our initial business combination through concurrent financings. Furthermore, once a proposed business combination is approved by our stockholders and the transaction is consummated, the target business will have effectively become public, whereas an initial public offering is always subject to the underwriters’ ability to complete the offering, as well as general market conditions that could prevent the offering from occurring. Once public, we believe the target business would have greater access to capital and additional means of creating management incentives that are better aligned with stockholders’ interests than it would as a private company. A public company can offer further benefits by augmenting a company’s profile among potential new customers and vendors and aid in attracting talented management. Offer Solid Execution and Structuring Capability. We believe that our management team’s and sponsor’s combined industry expertise and reputation will allow them to source and complete transactions possessing structural attributes that create an attractive investment thesis. These types of transactions are typically complex and require creativity, industry knowledge and expertise, rigorous due diligence, and extensive negotiations and documentation. We believe that by focusing our investment activities on these types of transactions, we are able to generate investment opportunities that have attractive risk/reward profiles based on their valuations and structural characteristics. Build and Operate Successful Multi-Billion Dollar Companies. Our management, board and advisors have decades of experience building and operating multibillion-dollar companies and have the ability to identify attractive candidates for our initial business combination. A distinguishing factor for our organization is the potential for any of our management, board or advisors to remain involved in an operating or board capacity of the newly public company post transaction. Our team has experience fostering relationships with sellers, capital providers and target management teams. Our team has also has experience integrating businesses acquired in mergers and acquisitions, and are capable of growing a business organically or inorganically if needed. Strong and Stable Financial Position with Flexibility. With funds in the trust account of $150.0 million (or approximately $172.5 million if the over-allotment option is exercised in full) available to use for a business combination, we offer a target business a variety of options such as providing the owners of a target business with shares in a public company and a public means to sell such shares, providing capital for the potential growth and expansion of its operations or strengthening its balance sheet by reducing its debt ratio. Because we are able to consummate our initial business combination using our cash, debt or equity securities, or a combination of the foregoing, we have the flexibility to use the most efficient combination that will allow us to tailor the consideration to be paid to the target business to fit its needs and desires. 3 Acquisition Criteria We have identified the following general criteria and guidelines which we believe are important in evaluating prospective target businesses. We will use these criteria and guidelines in evaluating acquisition opportunities and will initially target businesses with enterprise values of approximately $500 million to $2.5 billion, but we may decide to enter into our initial business combination with a target business that does not meet these criteria and guidelines. We intend to acquire one or more businesses that we believe has the following characteristics: Benefits from a Public Currency and Access to Public Equity Markets. Access to the public equity markets could allow the target company to utilize additional forms of capital, enhancing its ability to pursue accretive acquisitions, high-return capital projects, and/or strengthen its balance sheet and recruit and retain key employees through the use of publicly-traded equity compensation. Has a Strong Competitive Position and Growing Platform. We will seek to acquire companies that we believe possess not only established business models and sustainable competitive advantages, but also a growing platform for equity investors. Has an Ability to Scale beyond Domestic Market. We will look for a company with a product or platform which can be relevant internationally. We aim to replicate the competitive advantages within new markets as we assist the company expand. Operated by a Talented and Incentivized Management Team. We will focus on companies with strong and experienced management teams that desire a significant equity stake in the post-business combination company. We will seek to partner with a management team and/or sellers who are well-incentivized and aligned in an effort to create stockholder value. Benefits from Our Ability to Structure Transaction to Unlock and Maximize Value. We will look for situations where our extensive experience and creativity can architect a win-win solution for both sides of the transaction. Has Revenue and Earnings Growth Potential. We will seek to acquire one or more businesses that have multiple, diverse potential drivers of revenue and earnings growth. In the Technology Industry and can Benefit from the Extensive Networks and Insights We Have Built. We seek targets that can use technology to drive operational improvements and efficiency gains or use technology solutions to differentiate offerings and enhance their strategic positions, and that will benefit from the extensive contacts our management team has built in such industries. These criteria are not intended to be exhaustive. Any evaluation relating to the merits of a particular initial business combination may be based, to the extent relevant, on these general guidelines as well as other considerations, factors and criteria that our management may deem relevant. In the event that we decide to enter into our initial business combination with a target business that does not meet the above criteria and guidelines, we will disclose that the target business does not meet the above criteria in our stockholder communications related to our initial business combination, which, as discussed in this prospectus, would be in the form of tender offer documents or proxy solicitation materials that we would file with the SEC. Effecting a Business Combination We will either (1) seek stockholder approval of our initial business combination at a meeting called for such purpose at which stockholders may seek to convert their shares, regardless of whether they vote for or against the proposed business combination or do not vote at all, into their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account (net of taxes payable), or (2) provide our stockholders with the opportunity to sell their shares to us by means of a tender offer (and thereby avoid the need for a stockholder vote) for an amount equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account (net of taxes payable), in each case subject to the limitations described herein. The decision as to whether we will seek stockholder approval of our proposed business combination or allow stockholders to sell their shares to us in a tender offer will be made by us, solely in our discretion, and will be based on a variety of factors such as the timing of the transaction and whether the terms of the transaction would otherwise require us to seek stockholder approval. If we decide to allow stockholders to sell their shares to us in a tender offer, we will file tender offer documents with the SEC which will contain substantially the same financial and other information about the initial business combination as is required under the SEC’s proxy rules. We will consummate our initial business combination only if we have net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 immediately prior to or upon consummation of such business combination and, if we seek stockholder approval, a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock voted are voted in favor of the business combination. We have no specified maximum percentage threshold for redemptions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and even those public stockholders who vote in favor of our initial business combination have the right to redeem their public shares. As a result, this may make it easier for us to consummate our initial business combination. We will have up to 24 months from the closing of this offering to consummate an initial business combination. If we are unable to consummate an initial business combination within such time period, we will redeem 100% of our outstanding public shares for a pro rata portion of the funds held in the trust account, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account including interest earned on the funds held in the trust account and not previously released to us to pay our tax obligations, divided by the number of then outstanding public shares, subject to applicable law and as further described herein, and then seek to dissolve and liquidate. We expect the pro rata redemption price to be approximately $10.00 per share of common stock (regardless of whether or not the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option), without taking into account any interest earned on such funds. However, we cannot assure you that we will in fact be able to distribute such amounts as a result of claims of creditors which may take priority over the claims of our public stockholders. 4 Nasdaq listing rules require that our initial business combination must occur with one or more target businesses that together have a fair market value of at least 80% of the assets held in the trust account at the time of the agreement to enter into the initial business combination. The fair market value of the target or targets will be determined by our board of directors based upon one or more standards generally accepted by the financial community (such as actual and potential sales, earnings, cash flow and/or book value). Although our board of directors will rely on generally accepted standards, our board of directors will have discretion to select the standards employed. In addition, the application of the standards generally involves a substantial degree of judgment. Accordingly, investors will be relying on the business judgment of the board of directors in evaluating the fair market value of the target or targets. The proxy solicitation materials or tender offer documents used by us in connection with any proposed transaction will provide public stockholders with our analysis of the fair market value of the target business, as well as the basis for our determinations. If our board is not able independently to determine the fair market value of the target business or businesses, we will obtain an opinion from an independent investment banking firm, or another independent entity that commonly renders valuation opinions, with respect to the satisfaction of such criteria. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if we are not then listed on Nasdaq for whatever reason, we would no longer be required to meet the foregoing 80% fair market value test. We currently anticipate structuring a business combination to acquire 100% of the equity interests or assets of the target business or businesses. We may, however, structure our initial business combination where we merge directly with the target business or a newly formed subsidiary or where we acquire less than 100% of such interests or assets of the target business in order to meet certain objectives of the target management team or stockholders or for other reasons, but we will only complete such business combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires a controlling interest in the target sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act. Even if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the voting securities of the target, our stockholders prior to the business combination may collectively own a minority interest in the post-transaction company, depending on valuations ascribed to the target and us in the business combination transaction. For example, we could pursue a transaction in which we issue a substantial number of new shares in exchange for all of the outstanding capital stock of a target. In this case, we could acquire a 100% controlling interest in the target; however, as a result of the issuance of a substantial number of new shares, our stockholders immediately prior to our initial business combination could own less than a majority of our outstanding shares subsequent to our initial business combination. If less than 100% of the equity interests or assets of a target business or businesses are owned or acquired by the post-transaction company, the portion of such business or businesses that is owned or acquired is what will be valued for purposes of the 80% fair market value test. Potential Conflicts Members of our management team will directly or indirectly own shares of our common stock, or other instruments, such as warrants, linked to our common stock, following this offering and, accordingly, may have a conflict of interest in determining whether a particular target business is an appropriate business with which to effectuate our initial business combination. Further, each of our officers and directors may have a conflict of interest with respect to evaluating a particular business combination if the retention or resignation of any such officers and director
