WHEREAS, the Company and the Warrant Agent are parties to that certain Warrant Agreement, dated as of March 24, 2021 (the “Warrant Agreement”), which governs the Warrants;


WHEREAS, the Company and the Warrant Agent seek to amend the Warrant Agreement to provide that the Warrants, upon the consummation of an initial Business Combination, automatically convert into $0.40 per Warrant, payable in cash or shares of Common Stock (valued at $10.00 per share), at the discretion of the Company; and


WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 9.8 of the Warrant Agreement, the Company has obtained the consent to this Amendment from at least 50% of the Registered Holders of the outstanding Public Warrants and, solely with respect to any amendment to the terms of the Private Placement Warrants, 50% of Registered Holders of the outstanding Private Placement Warrants.


NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto agree as follows:


1.     Amendment of Warrant Agreement.

On and after the Warrant Conversion Date, the record holders of the Warrants shall have no further rights except to receive, upon surrender of the Warrants to the Warrant Agent, the Business Combination Redemption Price.”
