REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING
To the Shareholders and Board of Directors of
Global Technology Acquisition Corp. I
Opinion on the Financial Statement
We have audited the accompanying balance sheet
of Global Technology Acquisition Corp. I (the “Company”) as of October 25, 2021, and the related notes (collectively referred
to as the “financial statement”). In our opinion, the financial statement presents fairly, in all material respects, the financial
position of the Company as of October 25, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
Basis for Opinion
This financial statement is the responsibility
of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's financial statement based on our audit. We are
a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required
to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations
of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the
standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statement is free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to
perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audit, we are required to obtain an understanding of
internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal
control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.
Our audit included performing procedures to assess
the risks of material misstatement of the financial statement, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond
to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statement. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as
evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statement. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
We have served as the Company’s auditor since 2021.

Notes to Financial Statements
Note 1—Description of Organization, Business
Operations and Liquidity
Organization and General:
Global Technology Acquisition Corp. I (the “Company”)
was incorporated in the Cayman Islands as an exempted company on February 9, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting
a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses
(the “Business Combination”). The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the “Securities Act,” as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of
2012 (the “JOBS Act”).
At October 25, 2021, the Company had not commenced
any operations. All activity for the period from February 9, 2021 (inception) to October 25, 2021 relates to the Company’s formation
and the initial public offering (“Public Offering”) described below. The Company will not generate any operating revenues
until after completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company expects to generate non-operating income in the
form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents from the proceeds derived from the Public Offering.
The Company has selected December 31
as its fiscal year end.
Sponsor and Public Offering:
The Company’s sponsor is Global Technology
Acquisition I Sponsor Ltd., an exempted limited liability partnership registered in the Cayman Islands (the “Sponsor”). The
Company intends to finance a Business Combination with proceeds from the $200,000,000 Public Offering (Note 3) and a $10,500,000 private
placement (Note 4). Upon the closing of the Public Offering and the private placement on October 25, 2021, $204,000,000 is held in a trust
account (the “Trust Account”).
The Trust Account:
The funds in the Trust Account will be invested only
in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of one hundred and eighty-five (185) days or less or in money market funds meeting certain
conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 which invest only in direct U.S. government obligations. Funds
will remain in the Trust Account until the earlier of (i) the consummation of its initial Business Combination or (ii) the distribution
of the Trust Account as described below. The remaining funds outside the Trust Account may be used to pay for business, legal and accounting
due diligence on prospective acquisition targets and continuing general and administrative expenses.
The Company’s amended and restated memorandum
and articles of associating provides that, other than the withdrawal of interest to pay tax obligations, if any, less up to $100,000 interest
to pay dissolution expenses, none of the funds held in trust will be released until the earliest of: (a) the completion of the initial
Business Combination, (b) the redemption of any public shares properly submitted in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the
Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (i) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation
to redeem 100% of the public shares if the Company does not complete the initial Business Combination within 18 months from the closing
of the Public Offering (or up to 24 months from the date of closing of the Public Offering in two separate three month extensions subject
to satisfaction of certain conditions, including the deposit of up to $2,000,000 ($0.10 per unit in each case) for each three month extension,
into the Trust Account, or as extended by the Company’s shareholders in accordance with our amended and restated memorandum and
articles of association)) or (ii) with respect to any other provision relating to shareholders’ rights or pre-Business Combination
activity, and (c) the redemption of the public shares if the Company is unable to complete the initial Business Combination within
24 months as previously described The proceeds deposited in the Trust Account could become subject to the claims of creditors, if any,
which could have priority over the claims of our public shareholders.
At October 25, 2021, the amount in the Trust Account
consists of cash.
The Company’s management has broad discretion
with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Public Offering, although substantially all of the net proceeds of
the Public Offering are intended to be generally applied toward consummating a Business Combination with (or acquisition of) a Target
Business. As used herein, “Target Business” is one or more target businesses that together have a fair market value equal
to at least 80% of the balance in the Trust Account (less any taxes payable on interest earned) at the time of signing a definitive agreement
in connection with the Company’s initial Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully
effect a Business Combination.
The Company, after signing a definitive agreement
for a Business Combination, will either (i) seek shareholder approval of the Business Combination at a meeting called for such purpose
in connection with which shareholders may seek to redeem their shares, regardless of whether they vote for or against the Business Combination,
for cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days prior to the
consummation of the initial Business Combination, including interest but less taxes payable and amounts released for taxes, or (ii) provide
shareholders with the opportunity to have their shares redeemed by the Company by means of a tender offer (and thereby avoid the need
for a shareholder vote) for an amount in cash equal to their pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account
as of two business days prior to commencement of the tender offer, including interest but less taxes payable and amounts released to the
Company for working capital. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of the Business Combination or will
allow shareholders to sell their shares in a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion, and will be based on
a variety of factors such as the timing of the transaction and whether the terms of the transaction would otherwise require the Company
to seek shareholder approval unless a vote is required by the rules of the NASDAQ Global Market. If the Company seeks shareholder approval,
it will complete its Business Combination only if a majority of the outstanding shares of Class A and Class B ordinary shares
voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. However, in no event will the Company redeem its public shares in an amount that
would cause its net tangible assets (total assets less intangible assets and liabilities) to be less than $5,000,001 upon consummation
of a Business Combination. In such case, the Company would not proceed with the redemption of its public shares and the related Business
Combination, and instead may search for an alternate Business Combination.
If the Company holds a shareholder vote or there
is a tender offer for shares in connection with a Business Combination, a public shareholder will have the right to redeem its shares
for an amount in cash equal to its pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account as of two business days
prior to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, including interest but less taxes payable and amounts released to the Company
for working capital. As a result, such shares of Class A ordinary shares will be recorded at redemption amount and classified as
temporary equity upon the completion of the Public Offering, in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Accounting Standards Codification
(“FASB ASC 480”), “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” The amount in the Trust Account is initially $10.20
per public common share ($204,000,000 held in the Trust Account divided by 20,000,000 public shares.
The Company will have 18 months from the
closing date of the Public Offering, October 25, 2023, (or up to 24 months as previously described) to complete its initial Business
Combination. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within this period of time, it shall (i) cease all
operations except for the purposes of winding up; (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible, but not more than ten business days
thereafter, redeem the public shares of Class A ordinary shares for a per share pro rata portion of the Trust Account,
including interest, but less taxes payable and amounts released to the Company for working capital (less up to $100,000 of such net
interest to pay dissolution expenses) and (iii) as promptly as possible following such redemption, dissolve and liquidate the
balance of the Company’s net assets to its creditors and remaining shareholders, as part of its plan of dissolution and
liquidation. The initial shareholders have entered into letter agreements with us, pursuant to which they have waived their rights
to participate in any redemption with respect to their initial shares; however, if the initial shareholders or any of the
Company’s officers, directors or affiliates acquire shares of Class A ordinary shares in or after the Public Offering,
they will be entitled to a pro rata share of the Trust Account upon the Company’s redemption or liquidation in the event the
Company does not complete a Business Combination within 18 months from the closing of the Public offering (or 24 months as
In the event of such distribution, it is possible
that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be less than
the price per Unit in the Public Offering.
Risks and Uncertainties—COVID-19
Management continues to evaluate the impact of the
COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have an effect on the Company’s
financial position, results of its operations and/or search for a target company and/or a target company’s financial position and
results of its operations, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The Balance Sheet
does not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
Liquidity and Management's Plan
Management believes that the funds which the Company has available following the completion of the Initial
Public Offering will enable it to sustain operations for a period of at least one-year from the issuance date this financial statement.
Accordingly, substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern as disclosed in previously issued financial
statement has been alleviated. Prior to the completion of the initial public offering, the Company lacked the liquidity it needed to sustain
operations for a reasonable period of time, which is considered to be one year from the issuance date of the financial statement. The
Company has since competed its Initial Public Offering at which time capital in excess of the funds deposited in the trust and/or used
to fund offering expenses was released to the Company for general working capital purposes. Accordingly, management has since reevaluated
the Company's liquidity and financial condition and determined that sufficient capital exists to sustain operations through October 29,
2022 and therefore substantial doubt has been alleviated.
Note 2—Summary of Significant Accounting
Basis of Presentation:
The Balance Sheet of the Company is presented in
U.S. dollars and has been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US
GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
All dollar amounts are rounded to the nearest thousand
Emerging Growth Company
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 an election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that
when an accounting 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.
Cash and Cash Equivalents:
The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with original maturities of three months or less when acquired,
to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents at October 25, 2021.
Concentration of Credit Risk:
Financial instruments that potentially subject the
Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which at times, may exceed the Federal depository
insurance coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed
to significant risks on such accounts.
The fair value of the Company’s assets and
liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under FASB ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” approximates
the carrying amounts represented in the balance sheet, primarily due to their short-term nature.
The Company complies with FASB ASC
820, Fair Value Measurements, for its financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at each reporting
period, and non-financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at least annually.
Fair value is defined as the
price that would be received for sale of an asset or paid for transfer of a liability, in an orderly transaction between market
participants at the measurement date. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in
measuring fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or
liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:
Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices
(unadjusted) for identical instruments in active markets;
Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active
markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices
for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no
market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques
in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.
In some circumstances, the inputs
used to measure fair value might be categorized within different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In those instances, the fair value
measurement is categorized in its entirety in the fair value hierarchy based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair
Use of Estimates:
The preparation of Balance Sheet in conformity with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires the Company’s 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 Balance Sheet and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period.
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 as of October 25, 2021, 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.
Deferred Offering Costs:
The Company complies with the requirements of the
FASB ASC 340-10-S99-1 and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) Topic 5A—“Expenses of Offering”. Costs incurred in connection
with preparation for the Public Offering (approximately $725,000) together with $11,000,000 of underwriters’ discount, have been
allocated to equity instruments ($11,234,000) and warrant liability ($491,000), based on their relative values, and charged to equity
or expense (in the case of the portion allocated to warrant liability) upon completion of the Public Offering. The Company retained an
independent financial advisor in connection with the initial public offering of the Company’s common stock and expects to pay an
agreed amount of $175,000 that were included in offering costs, net of full reimbursement agreed to by the underwriters’.
Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible
All of the 20,000,000 Class A ordinary shares sold
as part of a Unit in the Public Offering discussed in Note 3 contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of common shares
under the Company’s liquidation or tender offer/stockholder approval provisions. In accordance with FASB ASC 480, redemption provisions
not solely within the control of the Company require the security to be classified outside of permanent equity. Ordinary liquidation events,
which involve the redemption and liquidation of all of the entity’s equity instruments, are excluded from the provisions of FASB
ASC 480. Although the Company did not specify a maximum redemption threshold, its articles of association provide that in no event will
it redeem its Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets (tangible assets less intangible assets and liabilities)
to be less than $5,000,001. However, because all of the Class A ordinary shares are redeemable, all of the shares are recorded as Class
A ordinary shares subject to redemption on the enclosed balance sheet.
The Company recognizes changes immediately as
they occur and adjusts the carrying value of the securities at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the
carrying amount of redeemable Class A ordinary shares are affected by adjustments to additional paid-in capital. Accordingly, at
October 25, 2021, all of the 20,000,000 Public Shares were classified outside of permanent equity. The Company accretes the amount of income earned on the Trust Account that would be available to public shareholders in a redemption as
earned and deducts permitted withdrawals from the Trust Account when made.
FASB ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and
a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions 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.
There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of October 25, 2021. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized
tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties at October 25, 2021. The Company
is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.
The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception. The Company is considered an exempted Cayman
Islands Company and is presently not subject to income taxes or income tax filing requirements in the Cayman Islands or the United States.
As such, the Company’s tax provision was zero for the period presented.
The Company follows the asset and liability method
of accounting for income taxes under FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes”. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized
for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets
and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply
to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax
assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances
are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.
Derivative Financial Instruments:
The Company evaluates its financial
instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with
ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging (ASC 815).” For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities,
the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value upon issuance, and the liability is then re-valued at each reporting
date, as determined by the Company based upon a valuation report obtained from its independent third-party valuation firm, with changes
in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments
should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative liabilities are classified
in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement or conversion of the instrument could be required
within 12 months of the balance sheet date. The Company’s warrant liability is a derivative financial instrument, See Note 5.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements:
In August 2020, the FASB issued 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 is currently evaluating the impact that the pronouncement will have on the financial statements.
Management does not believe that any other recently
issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial
The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions
that occurred after the date of the balance sheet through October 29, 2021, the date that the Balance Sheet was available to be issued.
All such events that would require adjustment or disclosure in the Balance Sheet has been recognized or disclosed.
Note 3 - Public Offering
On October 25, 2021, the Company closed on the Public
Offering and sale, including the underwriters’ partial exercise of their over-allotment option, of 20,000,000 units at a price of
$10.00 per unit (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares, $0.0001
par value, and one-half of one warrant (the “Warrants”). Each whole Warrant offered in the Public Offering is exercisable
to purchase one share of our Class A ordinary shares. Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Class A
ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per whole share, subject to adjustment, terms and limitations as described herein. The Warrants will
become exercisable on the later of 30 days after the completion of our initial business combination and 12 months from the closing of
this offering, and will expire five years after the completion of our initial business combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation
as described therein. However, if the Company does not complete its initial Business Combination on or prior to the 24-month period allotted
to complete the Business Combination, the Warrants will expire at the end of such period. Under the terms of a Public Warrant agreement,
the Company has agreed to use its best efforts to file a new registration statement under the Securities Act, following the completion
of the Company’s initial Business Combination. No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the Warrants. If, upon exercise
of the Warrants, a holder would be entitled to receive a fractional interest in a share, the Company will, upon exercise, round down to
the nearest whole number the number of shares of Class A ordinary shares to be issued to the Warrant holder. If the Company is unable
to deliver registered Class A ordinary shares to the holder upon exercise of a Warrant during the exercise period, there will be
no net cash settlement of these Warrants and the Warrants will expire worthless, unless they may be exercised on a cashless basis in the
circumstances described in the warrant agreement.
Once the Warrants become exercisable, the Company
may redeem the outstanding Warrants in whole and not in part at a price of $0.01 per Warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior
written notice of redemption, only in the event that the last sale price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00
per share for any 20 trading days within the 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day before the Company sends the notice
of redemption to the Warrant holders, and that certain other conditions are met. Once the Warrants become exercisable, the Company may
also redeem the outstanding Warrants in whole and not in part at a price of $0.10 per Warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior
written notice of redemption, only in the event that the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00 per
share on the trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption, and that certain other conditions are
met. If the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted) for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading day period ending three trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders, the Private
Placement Warrants must also concurrently be called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants, as described
The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option
to purchase up to 2,625,000 additional Units to cover any over-allotments, at the Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts
and commissions. At the closing of the Public Offering on October 25, 2021, the underwriters’ exercised 2,500,000 Units of such
over-allotment option. The Warrants that were issued in connection with 2,500,000 over-allotment units exercised are identical to the
public Warrants and have no net cash settlement provisions.
The Company paid an underwriting discount of 2.0%
of the per Unit price $4,000,000 to the underwriters at the closing of the Public Offering and a deferred underwriting fee of 3.5% of
the per Unit price, $7,000,000, upon the completion of the Company’s initial business combination.
Note 4 – Related party transactions
On February 10, 2021, the Sponsor purchased 6,468,750
Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”) for $25,000 or approximately $0.004 per share (up to 843,750 of which
were subject to forfeiture to the extent the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full). The Founder Shares are
substantially identical to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units being sold in the Public Offering except that the Founder
Shares automatically convert into shares of Class A ordinary shares at the time of the initial Business Combination, or at any time
prior thereto at the option of the holder, and are subject to certain transfer restrictions, as described in more detail below. On June
30, 2021, the Sponsor surrendered 2,156,250 Class B ordinary shares for no consideration, resulting in 4,312,500 shares outstanding of
which 562,500 were subject to forfeiture in the event the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised.
October 21, 2021, the Company executed a share capitalization that increased the number of Class B ordinary shares outstanding to 5,031,250,
656,250 of which were subject to forfeiture if the underwriters’’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full. At October
25, 2021, 31,250 of such shares remain forfeitable.
The Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to 656,250 Founder
Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option is not exercised in full by the underwriters. The forfeiture will be adjusted to the
extent that the over-allotment option is not exercised in full by the underwriters so that the initial shareholders will own 20.0% of
the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Public Offering.
the Company increases or decreases the size of the Public Offering pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act, the Company will
effect a share dividend or share contribution back to capital, as applicable, immediately prior to the consummation of the Public Offering
in such amount as to maintain the ownership of the Company’s stockholders prior to the Public Offering at 20.0% of the Company’s
issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock upon the consummation of the Public Offering.
The Company’s initial shareholders have agreed
not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier of (A) one year after the completion of the Company’s
initial Business Combination, or (B), subsequent to the Company’s initial Business Combination, if (x) the last sale price
of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share dividends,
reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days
after the Company’s initial Business Combination or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share
exchange or other similar transaction after the initial Business Combination that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having
the right to exchange their shares of ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property .
Private Placement Warrants
In connection with the closing of the Public Offering
on October 25, 2021 (Note 3), the Sponsor purchased from the Company an aggregate of 10,500,000 warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant (a
purchase price of 10,500,000, in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the completion of the Public Offering (the “Private
Placement Warrants”). Each Private Placement Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary shares at $11.50
per share. The purchase price of the Private Placement Warrants was added to the proceeds from the Public Offering, net of expenses of
the offering and working capital to be available to the Company, to be held in the Trust Account pending completion of the Company’s
initial Business Combination. The Private Placement Warrants (including the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the
Private Placement Warrants) will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business
Combination and they will be non-redeemable so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees. If the Private Placement
Warrants are held by someone other than the Sponsor or its permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by
the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the warrants included in the Units being sold in the Public Offering.
Otherwise, the Private Placement Warrants have terms and provisions that are identical to those of the Warrants sold as part of the Units
in the Public Offering and have no net cash settlement provisions.

raising purposes in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less
than $9.20 per share of Class A ordinary share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by
the board of directors and,
in the case of any such issuance to our initial stockholders or their affiliates or our anchor investor,

Note 5 – Accounting for Warrant Liability,
Fair Value Measurement
At October 25, 2021, the Company has outstanding
20,500,000 warrants outstanding including 10,000,000 Public Warrants and 10,500,000 Private Placement Warrants.
The Company accounts for its warrants outstanding
consistent with the “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition
Companies (the “Staff Statement”) issued on April 12, 2021 by the staff (the “Staff”) of the Division of Corporation
Finance of the SEC. The Staff Statement, among other things, highlights the potential accounting implications of certain terms that are
common in warrants issued in connection with the initial public offerings of special purpose acquisition companies (“SPAC”)
such as the Company. The Staff Statement reflects the Staff’s view that in many cases, warrants issued by SPACs should be characterized
as liabilities for accounting purposes, rather than as equity securities, unless certain conditions are met. As a result of this guidance,
the Company’s management further evaluated its warrants under ASC Subtopic 815-40, Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity including
the assistance of accounting and valuation consultants and concluded that the Company’s warrants are not indexed to the Company’s
shares in the manner contemplated by ASC Section 815-40-15 because the holder of the instrument is not an input into the pricing of a
fixed-for-fixed option on equity shares.
The following table presents information about the
Company’s warrant liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at October 25, 2021 and indicates the fair value
hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value.
Warrant liability at March 31, 2021
The Company utilizes an independent valuation
consultant that uses a binomial lattice model incorporating the Cox-Ross-Rubenstein methodology to value the warrants. The Company
is required to record the warrants at fair value at each reporting period, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of
operations. The estimated fair value of the warrant liability at October 25, 2021 was 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. The Company estimates the volatility of its shares based on historical volatility that matches the expected
remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon yield curve on the
grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be
equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates to
remain at zero.
The warrant liabilities are
not subject to qualified hedge accounting.
There were no transfers between
Levels 1, 2 or 3 at the balance sheet date, October 25, 2021.

Underwriters’ Overallotment Option
The Company granted the underwriters a 45-day option
to purchase up to 2,250,000 additional Units to cover any over-allotments, at the Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts
and commissions. The Warrants that would be issued in connection with 2,250,000 over-allotment units are identical to the public Warrants

exercised 2,500,000 Units of such over-allotment option. The Warrants that were issued in connection with 2,500,000 over-allotment units
