Item 4.
PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION
 
 
Founder Shares
 
 
Pursuant to the terms of a securities purchase agreement with the Issuer effective as of June 28, 2013 (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”), the Sponsor purchased 3,593,750 shares of Common Stock (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000 in cash, or approximately $0.007 per share. Pursuant to the terms of a securities assignment agreement (the “Securities Assignment Agreement”), 171,875 of those shares were transferred to each of two directors of the Issuer on August 22, 2013 for a price of $0.007 per share.
 
Sponsor Warrants
 
Pursuant to an amended and restated sponsor warrants purchase agreement dated as of August 19, 2013 (the “Sponsor Warrants Purchase Agreement”), the Sponsor purchased 8,000,000 warrants (the “Sponsor Warrants”) for an aggregate price of $4,000,000, in a private placement on September 20, 2013. Each Sponsor Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one-half of one share of Common Stock for $5.75 per half share and is exercisable beginning on the later of one year after issuance and 30 days after the completion of the Issuer’s initial business combination and may be exercised on a cashless basis. The Sponsor Warrants will expire five years after they become exercisable. The Sponsor Warrants (including the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Sponsor Warrants) may not, subject to certain limited exceptions, be transferred, assigned or sold by it until 30 days after the completion of the Issuer’s initial business combination (except, among other limited exceptions, to officers and directors of the Issuer and other persons or entities affiliated with the Sponsor) and they are not redeemable by the Issuer so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees. Permitted transferees must agree to the same limitations on transfer. On September 20, 2013, the Sponsor Warrants were sold by the Sponsor to CMAG, an affiliated company, for an aggregate of $4,000,000.
 
Registration Rights
 
The Sponsor is party to a registration rights agreement dated September 16, 2013 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Issuer.  Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the holders of 20% in interest of the Founder Shares (or their permitted transferees) and the Sponsor Warrants and the underlying shares that may be acquired upon exercise of the Sponsor Warrants (or its permitted transferees), shall be entitled to require the Issuer, on three occasions at any time after the date on which the Insider Shares or Sponsor Warrants, respectively, are released from lockup, to register the Insider Shares and Sponsor Warrants (and the shares that may be acquired upon exercise of the Sponsor Warrants).  In addition, the holders of the Founder Shares and Sponsor Warrants have “piggyback” registration rights with respect to the Founder Shares and Sponsor Warrants commencing on the date on which the Founder Shares and Sponsor Warrants, respectively, are released from lockup.  As a permitted transferee, CMAG is entitled to the benefits of the Registration Rights Agreement.
   
   
Letter Agreement
 
        On September 16, 2013, the Issuer entered into a letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with the Sponsor, the directors and each of the officers of the Issuer. The Letter Agreement is also binding on CMAG as a permitted transferee of the Sponsor Warrants.
 
        Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor returned to the Issuer for cancellation, at no cost, 468,750 of the Founder Shares held by it, since the Underwriters did not exercise their over-allotment option to purchase an additional 1,875,000 shares of Common Stock. The forfeited shares are not included in the beneficial ownership of the Reporting Persons for purposes of this Schedule 13D. Up to an additional 781,250 of the Founder Shares held by the Sponsor may be forfeited pursuant to the terms of the Letter Agreement unless (1) the last sales price of the Issuer’s shares exceeds $13.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within at least one 30-trading day period within 5 years following the closing of the Issuer’s initial business combination or (2) the Issuer complete a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of its stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of Common Stock for consideration in cash, securities or other property with a value which equals or exceeds $13.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like).

 

 
6

 
   
        Under the Letter Agreements, the Sponsor agreed that it will not propose any amendment to the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation that would affect the substance or timing of the Issuer's obligation to redeem the shares of Common Stock underlying the units sold in the Issuer’s initial public offering if the Issuer does not complete a business combination within 21 months from the closing of the initial public offering (or 24 months from the closing of the initial public offering if the Issuer has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or definitive agreement for a business combination within the 21-month period but has not yet completed the business combination) unless the Issuer provides its public shareholders with the opportunity to redeem their shares upon approval of any such amendment.
 
        The Sponsor has agreed that if the Issuer seeks shareholder approval of a proposed business combination it will vote all shares held by it in favor of such proposed business combination.
 
        Also pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Sponsor agreed not to transfer (except to certain permitted transferees) any Founder Shares until the earlier of: (i) one year after the completion of the Issuer’s initial business combination or (ii) the date on which the Issuer consummates a subsequent liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the Issuer’s stockholders having the right to exchange their Common Stock for cash, securities or other property (the “Lock-Up Period”). If the Issuer’s share price reaches or exceeds $12.50 (as the same may be adjusted for share splits, share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period during the Lock-Up Period, 50% of each of the Founder Shares will be released from the lock-up and, if the Issuer’s share price reaches or exceeds $15.00 (as the same may be adjusted for share splits, share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period during the Lock-Up Period, the remaining 50% of the Founder Shares shall be released from the lock-up. Under the Letter Agreement, neither the Sponsor Warrants nor the shares underlying such warrants may be transferred (except to certain permitted transferees) until 30 days after the consummation of the initial business combination.
 
        Under the Letter Agreement, the Founder agreed to waive, with respect to any shares of the Common Stock held by it, any redemption rights it may have in connection with the consummation of a business transaction, including, without limitation, any such rights available in the context of a stockholder vote to approve such business transaction or in the context of a tender offer made by the Issuer to purchase shares of the Common Stock.
   
 
The foregoing summary of certain terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Securities Assignment Agreement, the Sponsor Warrants Purchase Agreement, the Letter Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the documents, which are referenced as Exhibits 1-5 to this Schedule 13D.
   
 
Except as set forth herein, the Reporting Persons have no present plan or proposal that would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, without limitation, the Issuer’s financial position and strategic direction, actions taken by the board of directors, price levels of the Common Stock, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, conditions in the securities market and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, purchasing additional Common Stock or selling some or all of their Common Stock or warrants and, alone or with others, pursuing discussions with the management, the board of directors, other shareholders of the Issuer and third parties with regard to its investment in the Issuer, and/or otherwise changing their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

Item 5.
INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER
   
 
(a) As described in Item 4, the Sponsor and Mr. Hall may be deemed the beneficial owners of 2,781,250 shares of Common Stock representing approximately 17.8% of the outstanding Common Stock. This does not include shares issuable upon exercise of the Sponsor Warrants held by CMAG because the Sponsor Warrants are not exercisable within the following 60 days.
   
 
The aggregate percentage of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons are calculated based upon 15,625,000 shares of Common Stock reported to be outstanding in the Issuer's Prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4), filed on September 18, 2013, after giving effect to the completion of the offering, as described therein and the forfeiture of 468,750 shares by the Sponsor.
   
 
(b) By virtue of its control of the Sponsor, Mr. Hall shares the power to (i) vote or direct the voting and (ii) dispose or direct the disposition of all of the 2,781,250 shares of Common Stock held by the Sponsor.   By virtue of his control of the Sponsor, CGI and CMAG, Mr. Hall may be deemed to have shared voting power and/or shared dispositive power with respect to the Sponsor Warrants held by CMAG when they become exercisable.
   
 
(c) Other than the transactions described in Items 3 and 4 above, the Reporting Persons have not effected any transactions in the Common Stock in the past 60 days.
   
 
(d) No person (other than the Reporting Persons) is known to have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.
   
 
(e) Not applicable.
   


Item 6.
CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER
   
 
Other than the agreements described in Exhibits 1-7 hereto, as of the date hereof, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships (legal or otherwise) among the persons named in Item 2 hereof and between such persons and any person with respect to any securities of the Issuer.
