The net proceeds from the IPO, together with certain of the proceeds from the Private Placement, totaling $316,250,000 in the aggregate (the “Offering Proceeds”), were placed in a trust account with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders and the underwriters of the IPO. Except for the withdrawal of interest earned on the Offering Proceeds in the trust account to fund the Company’s franchise and income taxes, or upon the redemption by public stockholders of Class A common stock in connection with certain amendments to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, none of the funds held in the trust account will be released until the completion of the Company’s initial business combination or the redemption by the Company of 100% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock issued by the Company in the IPO if the Company does not consummate an initial business combination within 24 months after the closing of the IPO.
