NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

Magnum Opus Acquisition Limited (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on January 22, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”). The Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination. The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

As of March 31, 2023, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 relates to the Company’s formation, its initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”) and the search for Business Combination targets.

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on March 22, 2021. On March 25, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 20,000,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units sold, the “Public Shares”), at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $200,000,000, which is discussed in Note 3.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 6,000,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to Magnum Opus Holdings LLC (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds of $6,000,000, which is described in Note 4.

Transaction costs amounted to $11,470,467, consisting of $4,000,000 of underwriting fees, $7,000,000 of deferred underwriting fees, and $470,467 of other offering costs. In addition, as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, cash of $516,532 and $883,307 was held outside of the Trust Account (as defined below) within the Company’s operating cash accounts and is available for working capital purposes.

Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering on March 25, 2021, an amount of $200,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”), invested only in U.S. government treasury obligations with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the funds held in the Trust Account, as described below.

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company must complete a Business Combination with one or more target businesses that together have an aggregate fair market value of at least 80% of the value of the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on income earned on the Trust Account) at the time of the agreement to enter into an initial Business Combination. The Company will only complete a 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. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect a Business Combination.

The Company will provide its holders of the outstanding Public Shares (the “public shareholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a shareholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The public shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (initially $10.00 per Public Share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations). There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Company will proceed with a Business Combination only if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 either prior to or upon such consummation of a Business Combination and, if the Company seeks shareholder approval, a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required by law and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (the “Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, shareholder approval of the transaction is required by law, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or other reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor has agreed to vote its Founder Shares (as defined in Note 6) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of approving a Business Combination. Additionally, each public shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction or don’t vote at all.

Notwithstanding the above, if the Company seeks shareholder approval of a Business Combination and it does not conduct redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that a public shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% or more of the Public Shares, without the prior consent of the Company.

The Sponsor has agreed to waive (i) redemption rights with respect to its Founder Shares and Public Shares held by it in connection with the completion of a Business Combination, (ii) redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares and Public Shares held by it in connection with a shareholder vote to amend its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to modify the substance or timing of its obligation to allow redemption in connection with an initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering or with respect to any other material provision relating to shareholders’ rights or pre-initial business combination activity and (iii) rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares held if the Company fails to complete an initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering. However, if the Sponsor acquires Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, such Public Shares will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering.

On March 17, 2023, the Company held a shareholder meeting, on which, shareholders of the Company approved (1) the proposal to amend Articles 51.7 and 51.8 of the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to extend the date by which the Company has to consummate a business combination from March 25, 2023 (the “Termination Date”) to April 25, 2023 (the “First Extended Date”); and if the Company does not consummate a business combination by the First Extended Date, the Termination Date may be extended, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) at least three days prior to First Extended Date, to May 25, 2023 (the “Second Extended Date”), which may be further extended, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the Board passed at least three days prior to the Second Extended Date, to June 25, 2023 (the “Third Extended Date”), and may be further extended, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the Board passed at least three days prior to the Third Extended Date, to July 25, 2023 (the “Fourth Extended Date”, and each of the First Extended Date, the Second Extended Date, the Third Extended Date and the Fourth Extended Date, an “Extended Date”), for three additional one-month periods, for an aggregate of three additional months (each, an “Additional Extension Period” and the period from the Initial Public Offering to the last available Additional Extension Period, the “Business Combination Period”) (such proposal, the “Extension Amendment Proposal”) and (2) the proposal to approve an amendment to the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated March 23, 2021 by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, to reflect the extension and allow the Company to maintain any remaining amount in its Trust Account in an interest bearing demand deposit account at a bank (the “Trust Amendment Proposal” and together with the Extension Amendment Proposal, the “Extension Proposals”). In connection with the vote to approve the Extension Proposals, the holders of 13,404,883 Class A ordinary shares elected to redeem their shares for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.23 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $137.1 million leaving approximately $67.5 million in the Trust Account. In the event that the Company does not consummate a Business Combination on or before the First Extended Date, and if the Board has resolved to extend the period of time to consummate a Business Combination to the Second Extended Date or the Third Extended Date or the Fourth Extended Date as permitted by its Amendment and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association, the Board may at any time prior to the Second Extended Date or the Third Extended Date or the Fourth Extended Date (as the case may be) pass a

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

resolution to terminate such extension of the period of time to consummate a Business Combination to the Second Extended Date or the Third Extended Date or the Fourth Extended Date, as applicable, provided that the Company shall have deposited $150,000 to the Trust Account with respect to the applicable Additional Extension Period.

The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 7) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Business Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the assets remaining available for distribution will be less than the Initial Public Offering price per Unit ($10.00).

In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a written letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement or business combination agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below the lesser of (i) $10.00 per Public Share and (ii) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, if less than $10.00 per share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, less franchise and income taxes payable, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims by a third party or prospective target business who executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) nor will it apply to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers, prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.

Business Combination Agreements

As previously reported, on March 28, 2022, the Company, and Integrated Whale Media Investment Inc., a BVI business company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands (“IWM”), in its capacity as the shareholders’ representative, by mutual consent agreed to extend the termination date under the business combination agreement dated as of August 26, 2021 by and among the Company, IWM, Highlander Management LLC, a limited liability company incorporated in the State of Delaware, Forbes Global Holdings Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of IWM that is incorporated in the British Virgin Islands, and Forbes Global Media Holdings, Inc., a BVI business company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands (the “Forbes Business Combination Agreement”) to May 31, 2022. Pursuant to the Forbes Business Combination Agreement, IWM, in its capacity as the shareholders’ representative, may terminate the Business Combination Agreement at any time prior to the closing of the business combination by written notice to the Company if the closing shall not have occurred by May 31, 2022.

On June 1, 2022, IWM, in its capacity as the shareholders’ representative, notified the Company that it was terminating the Forbes Business Combination Agreement. All related ancillary agreements entered into in connection with the Forbes Business Combination Agreement were also terminated on June 1, 2022. The material terms and conditions of the Forbes Business Combination Agreement and the related ancillary agreements were previously disclosed in the Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 26, 2021 and February 10, 2022.

On September 30, 2022 (Hong Kong Time)/September 29, 2022 (Eastern Time), the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “ASIG Business Combination Agreement”) with Asia Innovations Group Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“ASIG”) and Connect Merger Sub, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASIG, which provides that Connect Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company being the surviving entity, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASIG.

Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the ASIG Business Combination Agreement, among other things, immediately prior to the Effective Time (as defined under the ASIG Business Combination Agreement), (i) each of the Company’s Class B ordinary share shall be automatically convert into one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.00001 per share; (ii) each Unit will be automatically separated and the holder thereof will be deemed to hold one Class A ordinary shares of the Company and one-half Public Warrant (as defined below); (iii) each issued and outstanding Class A ordinary share of the Company will be automatically converted into the right of the holder thereof to receive one class A ordinary share of ASIG after giving effect to the

Recapitalization (as defined under the ASIG Business Combination Agreement); and (iv) each Public Warrant and Private Placement Warrant will be automatically converted into one warrant of ASIG exercisable for class A ordinary shares of ASIG in accordance with its terms.

Liquidity and Going Concern Consideration

As of March 31, 2023, the Company had $516,532 in cash held outside of the Trust Account and working capital deficit of $6,970,160, which may not be sufficient for the Company to operate until July 25, 2023, the date at which the Company must complete a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect a Business Combination. If a Business Combination is not consummated by July 25, 2023, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company, unless the Business Combination Period is further extended.

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, management has determined the liquidity condition and the July 25, 2023 Business Combination Period deadline raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern from the date that these unaudited condensed financial statements are filed, if it does not complete a Business Combination prior to such date. These unaudited condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Risks and Uncertainties

The United States and global markets are experiencing volatility and disruption following the escalation of geopolitical tensions and the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022. In response to such invasion, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) deployed additional military forces to eastern Europe, and the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have announced various sanctions and restrictive actions against Russia, Belarus and related individuals and entities, including the removal of certain financial institutions from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) payment system. Certain countries, including the United States, have also provided and may continue to provide military aid or other assistance to Ukraine during the ongoing military conflict, increasing geopolitical tensions with Russia. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the resulting measures that have been taken, and could be taken in the future, by NATO, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have created global security concerns that could have a lasting impact on regional and global economies. Although the length and impact of the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine is highly unpredictable, the conflict could lead to market disruptions, including significant volatility in commodity prices, credit and capital markets, as well as supply chain interruptions. Additionally, Russian military actions and the resulting sanctions could adversely affect the global economy and financial markets and lead to instability and lack of liquidity in capital markets. In addition, the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia, and the impact of sanctions against Russia and the potential for retaliatory acts from Russia, could result in increased cyber-attacks against U.S. companies.

Any of the above mentioned factors, or any other negative impact on the global economy, capital markets or other geopolitical conditions resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and subsequent sanctions, could adversely affect the Company’s search for a Business Combination and any target business with which the Company may ultimately consummate a Business Combination. The extent and duration of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, resulting sanctions and any related market disruptions are impossible to predict, but could be substantial, particularly if current or new sanctions continue for an extended period of time or if geopolitical tensions result in expanded military operations on a global scale. Any such disruptions may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 as filed with the SEC on April 4, 2023. If these disruptions or other matters of global concern continue for an extensive period of time, the Company’s ability to consummate a Business Combination, or the operations of a target business with which the Company may ultimately consummate a Business Combination, may be materially adversely affected.

Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations, and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the unaudited condensed financial statements. The unaudited condensed financial statements does not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the SEC. Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 as filed with the SEC on April 4, 2023. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023 or for any future periods.

Emerging Growth Company

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period, which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statement(s) with another public company, which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of the unaudited condensed financial statement in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited condensed financial statement.

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the unaudited condensed financial statement, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Investments Held in Trust Account

As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had $67,731,730 and $202,841,231 in investments held in the Trust Account, respectively. The assets held in the Trust Account were held in money market funds, which are invested in U.S. Treasury securities.

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

All of the 20,000,000 shares of Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with the Business Combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s second amended and restated certificate of incorporation. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Class A ordinary shares has been classified outside of permanent equity.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid in capital and accumulated deficit. The redemption value of the redeemable ordinary shares as of March 31, 2023 increased as the income earned on the Trust Account exceeds the Company’s expected dissolution expenses (up to $100,000). As such, the Company recorded an increase in the carrying amount of the redeemable ordinary shares of $2,032,699 as of March 31, 2023. In connection with extending the Termination Date, the Company is expected to deposit Contributions (as defined below) into the Trust Account for each moth extended beyond March 25, 2023.

As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Class A ordinary shares reflected in the balance sheet are reconciled in the following table:

Offering Costs associated with the Initial Public Offering

The Company complies with the requirements of ASC 340-10-S99-1 and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A - Expenses of Offering. Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs directly attributable to the issuance of an equity contract to be classified in equity are recorded as a reduction in equity. Offering costs for equity contracts that are classified as assets and liabilities are expensed immediately. The Company incurred offering costs amounting to $11,470,467 as a result of the Initial Public Offering (consisting of a $4,000,000 underwriting fee, $7,000,000 of deferred underwriting fees and $470,467 of other offering costs). The Company recorded $10,603,116 of offering costs as a reduction of equity in connection with the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units. The Company immediately expensed $867,351 of offering costs in connection with the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants that were classified as liabilities.

Warrant Liabilities

The Company accounts for warrants as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the warrant’s specific terms and applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”) and ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and whether the warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the warrants are indexed to the Company’s own ordinary shares, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of warrant issuance and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the warrants are outstanding.

For issued or modified warrants that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded as a component of additional paid-in capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified warrants that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, the warrants are required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of the warrants are recognized as a non-cash gain or loss on the statements of operations. The fair value of the Public Warrants was estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation approach and the fair value of the Private Warrants was estimated using a Modified Black-Scholes model (see Note 10).

Promissory Note - Related Party

The Company accounts for convertible promissory notes under ASC 815. The Company has made the election under 815-15-25 to account for the notes under the fair value option. Using the fair value option, the convertible promissory notes are required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet thereafter. Differences between the face value of the note and fair value at issuance are recognized as either an expense in the statement of operations (if issued at a premium) or as a capital contribution (if issued at a discount). Changes in the estimated fair value of the notes are recognized as non-cash gains or losses in the statement of operations.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740 Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the unaudited condensed financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized.

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s unaudited condensed financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for unaudited condensed financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim period, disclosure and transition. Based on the Company’s evaluation, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s unaudited condensed financial statement.

The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. There are no taxes in the Cayman Islands and accordingly income taxes are not levied on the Company. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s unaudited condensed financial statement.

Net Income (Loss) Per Ordinary Share

Net income (loss) per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of shares of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. As the Public Shares are considered to be redeemable at fair value, and a redemption at fair value does not amount to a distribution different than other shareholders, Class A and Class B ordinary shares are presented as one class of shares in calculating net income (loss) per share. As a result, the calculated net income (loss) per share is the same for Class A and Class B shares of ordinary shares. At March 31, 2023 and March 31, 2022, the Company did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into shares of ordinary shares and then share in the earnings of the Company. As a result, diluted income (loss) per share is the same as basic income (loss) per share for the periods presented.

The following table reflects the calculation of basic and diluted net income (loss) per ordinary share (in dollars, except per share amounts):

Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of a cash account in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Depository Insurance Coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company applies ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and clarifies the definition of fair value within that framework. ASC 820 defines fair value as an exit price, which is the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the Company’s principal or most advantageous market in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The fair value hierarchy established in ASC 820 generally requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. Observable inputs reflect the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs reflect the entity’s own assumptions based on market data and the entity’s judgments about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are to be developed based on the best information available in the circumstances.

The carrying amounts reflected in the balance sheet for cash, prepaid expenses, due to related parties, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and accrued offering costs approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.

Level 1 — Assets and liabilities with unadjusted, quoted prices listed on active market exchanges. Inputs to the fair value measurement are observable inputs, such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are determined using prices for recently traded assets and liabilities with similar underlying terms, as well as direct or indirect observable inputs, such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

Level 3 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are unobservable inputs, such as estimates, assumptions, and valuation techniques when little or no market data exists for the assets or liabilities.

Recent Accounting Standards

In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) (“ASU 2020-06”) to simplify accounting for certain financial instruments. ASU 2020-06 eliminates the current models that require separation of beneficial conversion and cash conversion features from convertible instruments and simplifies the derivative scope exception guidance pertaining to equity classification of contracts in an entity’s own equity. The new standard also introduces additional disclosures for convertible debt and freestanding instruments that are indexed to and settled in an entity’s own equity. ASU 2020-06 amends the diluted earnings per share guidance, including the requirement to use the if-converted method for all convertible instruments. ASU 2020-06 is effective January 1, 2022 and should be applied on a full or modified retrospective basis, with early adoption permitted beginning on January 1, 2021. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 effective January 1, 2022 using the modified retrospective method of transition. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have a material impact on the unaudited condensed financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s unaudited condensed financial statements.

NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

Pursuant to the Initial Public Offering, the Company sold 20,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Ordinary Shares”), and one-half of one redeemable warrant (each whole warrant, a “Public Warrant”). Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A Ordinary Share at an exercise price of $11.50 per whole share (see Note 7).

NOTE 4. PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor purchased an aggregate of 6,000,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant ($6,000,000 in the aggregate). Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Business Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares

On January 26, 2021, the Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of 5,750,000 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”). The Founder Shares include an aggregate of up to 750,000 Class B ordinary shares subject to forfeiture by the Sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full or in part, so that the Sponsor will own, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering (assuming the Sponsor does not purchase any Public Shares in the Initial Public Offering). On May 11, 2021, 750,000 Class B ordinary shares were forfeited by the Sponsor.

The Sponsor has agreed that, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Founder Shares will not be transferred, assigned, sold or released from escrow until the earlier of (i) one year after the completion of a Business Combination or (ii) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction after an initial Business Combination that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if (1) the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any

30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after an initial Business Combination or (2) if the Company consummates a transaction after an initial Business Combination which results in the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their shares for cash, securities or other property, the Founder Shares will be released from the lock-up.

Administrative Support Agreement

The Company entered into an agreement, commencing on March 22, 2021, to pay an affiliate of the Sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, utilities, secretarial and administrative support services. Upon the completion of an initial Business Combination or liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. Under this agreement, $30,000 and $30,000 of expenses were incurred for the for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively and are included within formation and operating costs on the unaudited condensed statement of operations. At March 31, 2023, $20,000 of incurred fees are payable to the affiliate of the Sponsor and are included within accounts payable on the unaudited condensed balance sheet.

Related Party Loans

In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor or certain of the Company’s directors and officers may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants.

On January 26, 2021, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company could borrow up to an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering. The Promissory Note was non-interest bearing and is payable on the earlier of (i) December 31, 2021 or (ii) the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company did not borrow any amount under the Promissory Note.

On September 19, 2022, the Company issued an unsecured convertible promissory note to the Sponsor (the “Convertible Promissory Note”), pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to $200,000 from the Sponsor for general corporate purpose. Such loan may, at the Sponsor’s discretion, be converted into warrants to purchase Class A ordinary shares of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share, at a conversion price equal to $1.00 per warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share, subject to the same adjustments applicable to the Private Placement Warrants. The terms of the converted warrants will be identical to those of the Private Placement Warrants. The Working Capital Loan will not bear any interest, and will be repayable by the Company to the Sponsor, if not converted or repaid on the effective date of an initial merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination involving the Company and one or more businesses. The maturity date of the Working Capital Loan may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined under the Convertible Promissory Note). On September 21, 2022, the Company borrowed the full $200,000 from the Sponsor.

On November 18, 2022, the Company issued an unsecured convertible promissory note (the “Second Convertible Promissory Note”) to the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company may borrow up to $1,800,000 from the Sponsor for general corporate purpose. Such loan may, at the Sponsor’s discretion, be converted into warrants to purchase Class A ordinary shares of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share, at a conversion price equal to $1.00 per warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to the same adjustments applicable to the Private Placement Warrants. The terms of the converted warrants will be identical to those of the Private Placement Warrants. The Working Capital Loan will not bear any interest, and will be repayable by the Company to the Sponsor, if not converted or repaid on the effective date of an initial merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination involving the Company and one or more businesses. The maturity date of the Working Capital Loan may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined under the Second Convertible Promissory Note). On November 21, 2022, the Company borrowed the full $1,800,000 from the Sponsor. The fair value of the Second Convertible Promissory Note was estimated by the Company to be $264,400 at initial measurement. At March 31, 2023, the fair value of both the Convertible Promissory Note and the Second Convertible Promissory Note was estimated by the Company to be $396,700.

NOTE 6. COMMITMENTS

Registration Rights

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on March 23, 2021, the holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of 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) will have registration and shareholder rights to require the Company to register a sale of any of its securities held by them pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement to be signed prior to or 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 the completion of an initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement

The Company granted the underwriter a 45-day option to purchase up to 3,000,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments at the Initial Public Offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions. In May 2021, the underwriters’ over-allotment option expired.

The underwriter was paid a cash underwriting discount of $0.20 per Unit, or $4,000,000 in the aggregate, upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per unit, or $7,000,000 in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Following the termination of the Forbes Business Combination Agreement (as described in Note 1), $1,750,000 of deferred underwriting fees, contingently payable to capital market advisors upon the closing of the business combination under the Forbes Business Combination Agreement, was forgiven. As a result, the balance of the deferred underwriting fee was $5,250,000 at March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Extension

On February 17, 2023, the Company filed with the SEC a definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A (as supplemented by a definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed by the Company with the SEC on March 14, 2023) in relation to a proposed extraordinary general shareholder meeting of the Company’s shareholders (the “Extension Meeting”) to approve (1) the proposal to amend Articles 51.7 and 51.8 of the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association to extend the date by which the Company must (i) consummate a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination involving the Company with one or more businesses, which we refer to as a “business combination,” or (ii) cease its operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete such business combination and redeem or repurchase 100% of the Company’s public shares included as part of the Units from March 25, 2023 to April 25, 2023; and if the Company does not consummate a business combination by the First Extended Date, the Termination Date may be extended, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the board of directors of the Company at least three days prior to First Extended Date, to May 25, 2023, which may be further extended, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the board of directors of the Company passed at least three days prior to the Second Extended Date, to June 25, 2023, and may be further extended, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the board of directors of the Company passed at least three days prior to the Third Extended Date, to July 25, 2023, for three additional one-month periods, for an aggregate of three additional months and (2) an amendment to the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated March 23, 2021, by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, to (i) reflect the Extension and (ii) allow the Company to maintain any remaining amount in its Trust Account in an interest bearing demand deposit account at a bank. The record date of the Extension Meeting was February 21, 2023, and the date of the Extension Meeting was March 17, 2023.

On March 17, 2023, the Company held the Extension Meeting, at which the shareholders of the Company approved the Extension Proposals. In connection with the Extension Meeting, shareholders of the Company holding 13,404,883 Class A ordinary shares

exercised their option to redeem their shares for a pro rata portion of the funds in the Trust Account. As a result, approximately $137.1 million (approximately $10.23 per Class A ordinary share) was released from the Trust Account to pay such holders and approximately $67.5 million remained in the Trust Account. Following the redemption, 6,595,117 Class A ordinary shares remain outstanding.

In connection with the Extension, the Company agreed to deposit into the Trust Account, (A) for the period from March 25, 2023 until the First Extended Date, $150,000 (the “First Contribution”), (B) if the Company does not consummate a business combination by the First Extended Date and the board of directors of the Company elects to extend the Termination Date from the First Extended Date to the Second Extended Date, for the period from the First Extended Date to the Second Extended Date, $150,000 (the “Second Contribution”), (C) if the Company does not consummate a business combination by the Second Extended Date and the board of directors of the Company elects to extend the Termination Date from the Second Extended Date to the Third Extended Date, for the period from the Second Extended Date to the Third Extended Date, $150,000 (the “Third Contribution”), and (D) if the Company does not consummate a business combination by the Third Extended Date and the board of directors of the Company elects to extend the Termination Date from the Third Extended Date to the Fourth Extended Date, for the period from the Third Extended Date to the Fourth Extended Date, $150,000 (the “Fourth Contribution,” and together with the First Contribution, the Second Contribution and the Third Contribution, the “Contributions,” each, a “Contribution”). On March 29, 2023, the Company deposited into the Trust Account the First Contribution in the amount of $150,000. On April 24, 2023, the Company deposited into the Trust Account the Second Contribution in the amount of $150,000. On May 22, 2023, the Company deposited into the Trust Account the Third Contribution in the amount of $150,000.

NOTE 7. WARRANTS

Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the Public Warrants. The Public Warrants will become exercisable on the later of (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination or (b) one year from the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

The Company will not be obligated to deliver any Class A ordinary shares pursuant to the exercise of a warrant and will have no obligation to settle such warrant exercise unless a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the Class A ordinary shares underlying the warrants is then effective and a prospectus relating thereto is current, subject to the Company satisfying its obligations with respect to registration, or a valid exemption from registration is available. No warrant will be exercisable and the Company will not be obligated to issue a Class A ordinary shares upon exercise of a warrant unless the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon such warrant exercise has been registered, qualified or deemed to be exempt under the securities laws of the state of residence of the registered holder of the warrants.

The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 15 business days after the closing of an initial Business Combination, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants. The Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the same to become effective within 60 business days after the closing of an initial Business Combination and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration of the warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. If a registration statement covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the 60th business day after the closing of an initial Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. Notwithstanding the above, if the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of public warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and, in the event the Company so elects, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, and in the event the Company does not so elect, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available.

Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00. Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may call the outstanding warrants for redemption (except for so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees):

in whole and not in part;
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder; and
if, and only if, the reported closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

The Company will not redeem the warrants as described above unless a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares is available throughout the 30 day redemption period. If and when the warrants become redeemable by the Company, the Company may exercise its redemption right even if the Company is unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.

Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00. Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the warrants (except for so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees):

in whole and not in part;
at $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of Class A ordinary shares determined by the redemption date and the fair market value of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares; and
if, and only if, the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), for any 20 trading days within the 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

The value of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares shall mean the volume weighted average price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares during the 10 trading days immediately following the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of warrants. The Company will provide its warrant holders with the final fair market value no later than one business day after the 10-trading day period described above ends. In no event will the warrants be exercisable in connection with this redemption feature for more than 0.361 Class A ordinary shares per warrant (subject to adjustment).

In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities, for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of an initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per Class A ordinary shares (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Company’s initial shareholders or their affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the Company’s initial shareholders or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of an initial Business Combination on the date of the consummation of an initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares during the 10-trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates an initial Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares is below $9.20 per share, then the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price,

and the $10.00 per share redemption trigger price will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants are not transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants are exercisable on a cashless basis and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

At March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 10,000,000 Public Warrants and 6,000,000 Private Placement Warrants outstanding. The Company accounts for the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40. Such guidance provides that because the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, each warrant must be recorded as a liability.

The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments required that the Company record the warrants as derivative liabilities at fair value upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Public Warrants were allocated a portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the Units equal to its fair value. The warrant liabilities are subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date. With each such re-measurement, the warrant liabilities are adjusted to current fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company will reassess the classification at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the warrants will be reclassified as of the date of the event that causes the reclassification.

NOTE 8. CLASS A ORDINARY SHARES SUBJECT TO REDEMPTION

Class A ordinary shares — The Company is authorized to issue up to 500,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 6,595,117 and 20,000,000 Class A ordinary shares issued, respectively, and no shares outstanding, excluding 6,595,117 and 20,000,000 Class A ordinary shares, respectively, subject to possible redemption which are presented as temporary equity.

NOTE 9. SHAREHOLDERS’ DEFICIT

Preference shares — The Company is authorized to issue 5,000,000 preference shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were no preference shares issued or outstanding.

Class B ordinary shares — The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of Class B ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 5,000,000 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding.

Ordinary shareholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by shareholders. Holders of Class A ordinary shares and holders of Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s shareholders except as required by law. However, only holders of Class B ordinary shares will have the right to appoint directors prior to the completion of an initial Business Combination, meaning that holders of Class A ordinary shares will not have the right to appoint any directors until after the completion of an initial Business Combination.

The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares concurrently with or immediately following the consummation of an initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment for share splits, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like, and subject to further adjustment. In the case that additional Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities are issued or deemed issued in connection with an initial Business Combination, the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Class B ordinary shares will equal, in the aggregate, 20% of the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued and outstanding after such conversion (after giving effect to any redemptions of Class A ordinary shares by public shareholders), including the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued, or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise

of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued, by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of an initial Business Combination, excluding any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, or to be issued, to any seller in an initial Business Combination and any Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor, officers or directors upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, provided that such conversion of Class B ordinary shares will never occur on a less than one-for-one basis.

The Company utilized a Monte Carlo simulation model for the initial valuation of the Public Warrants. The subsequent measurement of the Public Warrants as of March 31, 2023, and December 31, 2022 is classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market under the ticker OPA.WS. The quoted price of the Public Warrants was $0.08 and $0.02 per warrant as of March 31, 2023, and December 31, 2022, respectively.

The Company utilized a Modified Black-Scholes model to value the Private Placement Warrants at each reporting period, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations. The estimated fair value of the warrant liabilities are determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a binomial options pricing model are assumptions related to expected share-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. However, since a reasonable and acceptable volatility cannot be inferred for the Private Placement Warrants, the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants were set equal to the fair value of the Public Warrants as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on January 22, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”). The Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination. The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering and identifying target company for a business combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents 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 March 31, 2023, we had a net income of $24,980, which resulted from interest income of $1,882,701, partially offset by a loss on the change in fair value of warrant liabilities in the amount of $960,000, a loss on the change in fair value of promissory note - related party of $100,800, and by formation and operating costs of $796,921.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had net income of $229,236, which resulted from a gain on the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $1,180,000 and interest income on investments held in the Trust Account of $12,910, offset in part by formation and operating costs of $1,422,146.

Proposed Business Combinations

As discussed in “Note 1 Description of Organization and Business Operations” to the unaudited condensed financial statements contained elsewhere in this Quarterly Report, on March 28, 2022, the Company entered into the Forbes Business Combination

22

Agreement and on June 1, 2022, IWM, in its capacity as the shareholders’ representative, notified the Company that it was terminating the Forbes Business Combination Agreement. All related ancillary agreements entered into in connection with the Forbes Business Combination Agreement were also terminated on June 1, 2022.

On September 29, 2022, the Company entered into the ASIG Business Combination Agreement with ASIG, a Cayman Islands exempted company and Connect Merger Sub, a Cayman Islands exempted company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASIG, which provides that Connect Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company being the surviving entity, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASIG.

Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the ASIG Business Combination Agreement, among other things, immediately prior to the Effective Time (as defined under the ASIG Business Combination Agreement), (i) each of the Company’s Class B ordinary share shall be automatically convert into one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.00001 per share; (ii) each Unit will be automatically separated and the holder thereof will be deemed to hold one Class A ordinary shares of the Company and one-half Public Warrant (as defined below); (iii) each issued and outstanding Class A ordinary share of the Company will be automatically converted into the right of the holder thereof to receive one class A ordinary share of ASIG after giving effect to the Recapitalization (as defined under the ASIG Business Combination Agreement); and (iv) each Public Warrant and Private Placement Warrant will be automatically converted into one warrant of ASIG exercisable for class A ordinary shares of ASIG in accordance with its terms. The Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC on September 29, 2022 disclosing its entering into the ASIG Business Combination Agreement.

Liquidity, Capital Resources, and Going Concern Consideration

On March 25, 2021, we consummated an initial public offering of 20,000,000 units generating gross proceeds to the Company of $200,000,000. Simultaneously with the consummation of the initial public offering, we completed the private sale of 6,000,000 warrants to Magnum Opus Holdings LLC at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant (the "Private Placement Warrants"), generating gross proceeds of $6,000,000. The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Business Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, net cash used in operating activities was $216,775, which resulted from interest income on investments held in Trust Account of $1,882,699, and a net income of $24,980 partially offset by non-cash adjustments related to a change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $960,000, a change in the fair value of promissory notes of $100,800 and changes in working capital of $580,144.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, net cash used in operating activities was $401,452, which was due to non-cash adjustments to net income related to a change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $1,180,000 and interest income on investments held in Trust Account of $12,910, offset in part by net income of $229,236 and changes in working capital of $1,020,694.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, net cash provided by investing activities was $136,992,200 which resulted from $137,142,200 withdrawals from the Trust Account for the payment to redeeming stockholders partially offset by $150,000 deposited into the Trust Account.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, there were no investing activities.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, net cash used in financing activities was $137,142,200 which was due to withdrawals from the Trust Account for the payment to redeeming stockholders.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, there were no financing activities.

As of March 31, 2023, we had $516,532 in cash held outside of the Trust Account and working capital deficit of $6,970,160, which may not be sufficient for the Company to operate until July 25, 2023, the date at which the Company must complete a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully effect a Business Combination. If a Business Combination is not consummated by July 25, 2023, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company unless the Business

23

Combination Period is further extended. We intend to use the funds held outside the trust account primarily to evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a 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. Up to $2,000,000 of such loans may be convertible into private placement warrants of the post business combination entity at a price of 1.00 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.

On each of September 19, 2022 and November 18, 2022, we issued an unsecured convertible promissory note to the Sponsor, pursuant to which, we may borrow working capital loan in an amount of up to $200,000 and $1,800,000, respectively, from the Sponsor for general corporate purpose. Such loans may, at the Sponsor’s discretion, be converted into warrants to purchase our Class A ordinary shares, at a conversion price equal to $1.00 per warrant, each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to certain adjustments. The terms of the aforementioned warrants are identical as those of our private placement warrants. For further information of such notes, please refer to the Current Reports on Form 8-K we filed with the SEC on September 19, 2022 and November 18, 2022. As of March 31, 2023, $2,000,000 are outstanding under the working capital loans.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Contractual Obligations

Registration Rights

The holders of the Founder Shares, private warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of any working capital loans (as defined below), any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of these warrants have registration and shareholder rights to require the Company to register a sale of any such securities held by them pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement entered into in connection with our 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 the completion of an initial business combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement

Under the Underwriting Agreement, the underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $7,000,000 in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the trust account solely in the event that we complete an initial business combination, including the Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement. Following the termination of the Forbes Business Combination Agreement, $1,750,000 of deferred underwriting fees, contingently payable to capital market advisors upon the closing of the business combination under the Forbes Business Combination Agreement, was forgiven. As a result, the balance of the deferred underwriting fee was $5,250,000 at March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Administrative Support Agreement

The Company entered into an agreement, commencing on March 22, 2021, to pay our Sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, utilities, secretarial and administrative support services. Upon the completion of a business combination or liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. Under this agreement, $30,000 and $30,000 of expenses were incurred for the for the

24

three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively and are included within formation and operating costs on the unaudited condensed statement of operations. At March 31, 2023, $20,000 of incurred fees are payable to the affiliate of the Sponsor and are included within accounts payable on the unaudited condensed balance sheet.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of unaudited condensed financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited condensed financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting policies:

Warrant Liabilities

We account for the warrants issued in connection with our initial public offering in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (“ASC 815”), under which the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity classification and must be recorded as liabilities. As the warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the Warrants are measured at fair value at inception and at each reporting date in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, with changes in fair value recognized in the Statement of Operations in the period of change.

Promissory Note - Related Party

We account for promissory notes under ASC 815. We have made the election under 815-15-25 to account for the notes under the fair value option. Using the fair value option, the convertible promissory note is required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet thereafter.Differences between the face value of the note and fair value at issuance are recognized as either an expense in the statement of operations (if issued at a premium) or as a capital contribution (if issued at a discount). Changes in the estimated fair value of the notes are recognized as non-cash gains or losses in the statement of operations.

Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption

All of the 20,000,000 shares of Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such shares of Class A ordinary shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with our business combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s second amended and restated certificate of incorporation. In accordance with SEC and its staff’s guidance on redeemable equity instruments, which has been codified in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Class A ordinary shares has been classified outside of permanent equity.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid in capital and accumulated deficit.

Net Income (Loss) Per Ordinary Share

Net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. As the Public Shares are considered to be redeemable at fair value, and a redemption at fair value does not amount to a distribution different than other shareholders, Class A and Class B ordinary shares are presented as one class of shares in calculating net income (loss) per share. As a result, the calculated net income (loss) per share is the same for Class A and Class B shares of ordinary shares. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 16,000,000 shares in the calculation of diluted income (loss) per share, since the warrants are contingently exercisable, and the contingencies have not yet been met.

Recent Accounting Standards

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s unaudited condensed financial statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

This item is not applicable as we are a smaller reporting company.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2023. Based upon their evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were effective.

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

During the most recently completed fiscal quarter, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
