NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS

Hydra Industries Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in Delaware on May 30, 2014. The Company was formed for the purpose of acquiring, through a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, recapitalization or other similar business transaction, one or more operating businesses or assets (“Business Combination”).

At March 31, 2016, the Company had not yet commenced operations. All activity through March 31, 2016 related to the Company’s formation, its Initial Public Offering, which is described below, identifying a target company and engaging in due diligence for a Business Combination.

The registration statement for the Company’s initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) was declared effective on October 24, 2014. The Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 8,000,000 units (“Units”) at $10.00 per unit on October 29, 2014, generating gross proceeds of $80,000,000, which is described in Note 4.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the private placement of 7,500,000 warrants (“Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $0.50 per warrant to certain of the Company’s stockholders, generating gross proceeds of $3,750,000, which is described in Note 5.

Transaction costs amounted to $5,223,296, inclusive of $2,000,000 of underwriting fees, $2,800,000 of deferred underwriting fees (which are held in the Trust Account (defined below)) and $423,296 of Initial Public Offering costs. In addition, at October 29, 2014, cash of $1,326,704 was placed in an account outside of the Trust Account to fund operations. As of March 31, 2016, cash held outside of the Trust Account amounted to $519,976, which includes proceeds from convertible promissory notes in the aggregate amount of $500,000 (see Note 6).

Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering on October 29, 2014, an amount of $80,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement Warrants was placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”) and subsequently invested in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), with a maturity of 180 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by the Company meeting the conditions of paragraphs (c)(2), (c)(3) and (c)(4) of Rule 2a-7 of the 1940 Act, and will remain invested in U.S. government securities until the earlier of: (i) the consummation of a Business Combination or (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of its Initial Public Offering and Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company’s securities are listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“NASDAQ”). Pursuant to the NASDAQ listing rules, the Company’s Business Combination must be with a target business or businesses whose collective fair market value is equal to at least 80% of the balance in the Trust Account at the time of the execution of a definitive agreement for such 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 the acquisition of one or more target businesses or assets, may either (i) seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination at a meeting called for such purpose at which stockholders may seek to redeem their shares, regardless of whether they vote for or against a Business Combination or (ii) provide its stockholders with the opportunity to sell their shares to the Company by means of a tender offer (and thereby avoid the need for a stockholder vote). Stockholder approval will be sought by the Company if required by law or applicable stock exchange rule or for business or other legal reasons. In the event of a proposed merger of the Company with a target company, stockholder approval is required by Delaware law. Further, under the NASDAQ listing rules, stockholder approval is required, if, for example, (a) the Company will issue common stock that will be equal to or in excess of 20% of the number of shares of its common stock outstanding, (b) any of the Company’s directors, officers or substantial stockholders (as defined by NASDAQ rules) has a 5% or greater interest (or such persons collectively have a 10% or greater interest), directly, or indirectly, in the target business or assets to be acquired or otherwise and the present or potential issuance of common stock could result in an increase in outstanding common shares or voting power of 5% or more, or (c) the issuance or potential issuance of common stock will result in a change of control of the Company. The Business Combination must be approved by the board of directors. In addition, the Company’s Business Combination must be approved by MIHI LLC (the “Macquarie sponsor”) as a condition to the Contingent Forward Purchase Contract (as described in Note 7). In the event that the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Company will proceed with a Business Combination only if a majority of the outstanding shares that are voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. In connection with such vote, the Company will provide its stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their shares of the Company’s common stock upon the consummation of a Business Combination for a pro-rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (initially $10.00 per share, plus any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to pay taxes). However, in no event will the Company redeem its public shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. Hydra Industries Sponsor LLC (the “Hydra sponsor”) and the Macquarie sponsor (together with the Hydra sponsor, the “Sponsors”) and the other initial stockholders of the Company have agreed, in the event the Company is required to seek stockholder approval of its Business Combination, to vote their founders shares (as defined in Note 6) and any public shares purchased, in favor of approving a Business Combination. Notwithstanding the foregoing redemption rights, if the Company seeks stockholder approval of the Business Combination and it does not conduct redemptions in connection with the Business Combination pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that a public stockholder, together with any affiliate of such stockholder or any other person with whom such stockholder 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 an aggregate of 25% or more of the shares sold in the Initial Public Offering.

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering (the “Combination Period”), the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purposes of winding up its affairs; (ii) distribute the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including a portion of the interest earned thereon (net of any taxes payable, and less up to $50,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), pro rata to the Company’s public stockholders by way of redemption of the Company’s public shares (which redemption would completely extinguish such holders’ rights as stockholders, including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any); and (iii) as promptly as possible following such redemption, dissolve and liquidate the balance of the Company’s net assets to its remaining stockholders, as part of the Company’s plan of dissolution and liquidation.

The initial stockholders have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to the founder shares (i) in connection with the consummation of a Business Combination, (ii) if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within the Combination Period, and (iii) upon the Company’s liquidation upon the expiration of the Combination Period. However, if the Company’s initial stockholders should acquire public shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to redemption rights with respect to such public shares if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commissions held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not consummate a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Company’s public shares. 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 Initial Public Offering price per Unit in the Initial Public Offering ($10.00 per share). A. Lorne Weil, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and the managing member of the Hydra sponsor, has agreed that he will be liable to the Company, and the Macquarie sponsor has agreed to indemnify Mr. Weil for 50% of any such liability, if and to the extent any claims by a vendor for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or by a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below $10.00 per share or such lesser amount per share of Common Stock held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, due to reductions in value of the trust assets other than due to the failure to obtain such waiver, in each case net of the amount of interest which may be withdrawn to pay taxes, except as to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any and all rights to seek access to the Trust Account and except as 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 Mr. Weil will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (other than the Company’s independent auditors and the provider of the Company’s directors’ and officers’ liability insurance), 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.

NOTE 2. LIQUIDITY AND GOING CONCERN

As of March 31, 2016, the Company had $519,976 in its operating bank accounts, $80,044,350 in cash and securities held in the Trust Account to be used for a Business Combination or to repurchase or convert its common stock in connection therewith and a working capital deficit of $2,607,791. As of March 31, 2016, $35,694 of the amount on deposit in the Trust Account represented interest income, which is available to be withdrawn to pay the Company’s tax obligations. Since inception, the Company has not withdrawn any interest income from the Trust Account.

HYDRA INDUSTRIES ACQUISITION CORP.

MARCH 31, 2016

(Unaudited)

Until the consummation of a Business Combination, the Company will be using the funds not held in the Trust Account for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to acquire, structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination and paying for public company expenses.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company used cash of $236,263 in operating activities. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had current liabilities of $3,265,618, primarily representing amounts owed to lawyers, accountants and consultants who have advised the Company on matters related to a potential Business Combination. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to make payment in full of the amounts due to said advisors. Funds in the Trust Account are not available for this purpose absent an initial Business Combination. If a Business Combination is not consummated, the Company would lack the resources to pay all of the liabilities that have been incurred by the Company to date or after and the Company may lack the resources needed to consummate another Business Combination. The Company entered into fee arrangements with certain service providers and advisors in connection with a potential Business Combination pursuant to which certain fees were deferred and payable only if the Company consummated such potential Business Combination (see Note 7). Effective October 26, 2015, all efforts related to such potential Business Combination were terminated and, accordingly, all deferred contingent fees that had been previously incurred are no longer due or payable. There can be no assurances that the Company will complete a Business Combination.

The Company may need to raise additional capital through loans or additional investments from its Sponsors, stockholders, officers, directors, or third parties. On March 16, 2016, the Sponsors loaned the Company $250,000 each, for an aggregate of $500,000, to fund its expenses prior to a Business Combination (see Note 6). In addition, the Company’s officers, directors and Sponsors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds, from time to time or at any time, in whatever amount they deem reasonable in their sole discretion, to meet the Company’s working capital needs.

Other than as described above, none of the Sponsors, stockholders, officers or directors, or third parties, are under any obligation to advance funds to, or to invest in, the Company. Accordingly, the Company may not be able to obtain additional financing. If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of a potential transaction, and reducing overhead expenses. The Company cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to it on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These 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.

NOTE 3. 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 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“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 comprehensive 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, 2015 as filed with the SEC, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto, together with Management's Discussion and Analysis. The financial information as of December 31, 2015 is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016 or for any future interim periods.

HYDRA INDUSTRIES ACQUISITION CORP.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and 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 at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future 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, 2016.

Cash and marketable securities held in Trust Account

The amounts held in the Trust Account represent substantially all of the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and are classified as restricted assets since such amounts can only be used by the Company in connection with the consummation of a Business Combination. As of March 31, 2016, cash and marketable securities held in the Trust Account consisted of $80,044,350 in United States Treasury Bills with a maturity date of 180 days or less.

Common stock subject to possible redemption

The Company accounts for its common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, common stock subject to possible redemption in the amount of $69,637,608 (or 6,959,902 shares) and $69,883,968 (or 6,987,568 shares), respectively, is presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of the Company’s balance sheet.

Net loss per share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” Net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Shares of common stock subject to possible redemption at March 31, 2016 and 2015 have been excluded from the calculation of basic loss per share since such shares, if redeemed, only participate in their pro rata share of the Trust Account earnings. The Company has not considered the effect of warrants to purchase shares of common stock and rights that convert into shares of common stock in the calculation of diluted loss per share, since the exercise of the warrants and the conversion of the rights into shares of common stock is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted loss per share is the same as basic loss per share for the periods presented.

Income taxes

The Company complies with the accounting and reporting requirements of ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes,” which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

HYDRA INDUSTRIES ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2016

(Unaudited)

ASC Topic 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 March 31, 2016. 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 various taxing authorities since its inception. These potential examinations may include questioning the timing and amount of deductions, the nexus of income among various tax jurisdictions and compliance with federal and state tax laws. The Company’s management does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will materially change over the next twelve months.

The Company’s policy for recording interest and penalties associated with audits is to record such expense as a component of income tax expense. There were no amounts accrued for penalties or interest as of March 31, 2016. Management is currently unaware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviations from its position.

Concentration of credit risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution which, at times may exceed the Federal depository insurance coverage of $250,000. At March 31, 2016, the Company had not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

Fair value of financial instruments

The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (“ASC 820”), approximates the carrying amounts represented in the accompanying balance sheets, primarily due to their short-term nature.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, “Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern” (“ASU 2014-15”). ASU 2014-15 provides guidance on management’s responsibility in evaluating whether there is substantial doubt about a company’s ability to continue as a going concern and about related footnote disclosures. For each reporting period, management will be required to evaluate whether there are conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about a company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date the financial statements are issued. The amendments in ASU 2014-15 are effective for annual reporting periods ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual and interim periods thereafter. Early adoption is permitted. The Company will adopt the methodologies prescribed by ASU 2014-15 by the date required, and does not anticipate that the adoption of ASU 2014-15 will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.

NOTE 4. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

On October 29, 2014, the Company sold 8,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit in its Initial Public Offering. Each Unit consists of one share of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value (“Common Stock”), one right (“Public Right”) and one redeemable common stock purchase warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each Public Right will convert into one-tenth (1/10) of one share of Common Stock upon the consummation of a Business Combination. The Company did not register the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants. However, the Company has agreed to use its best efforts to file within 15 business days of the closing of a Business Combination and have an effective registration statement within 60 business days of the closing of a Business Combination covering the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants, to maintain a current prospectus relating to those shares of Common Stock until the earlier of the date the Public Warrants expire or are redeemed and, the date on which all of the Public Warrants have been exercised and to qualify the resale of such shares under state blue sky laws, to the extent an exemption is not available. Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one-half share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $5.75 ($11.50 per whole share). The Public Warrants may be exercised only for a whole number of shares of Common Stock. 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 consummation of a Business Combination, or (b) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the consummation of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. The Public Warrants will be redeemable by the Company at a price of $0.01 per warrant upon 30 days’ prior written notice after the Public Warrants become exercisable, only in the event that the last sale price of the Common Stock equals or exceeds $24.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which notice of redemption is given. The Company will not redeem the Public Warrants unless an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants is effective and a current prospectus relating to those shares of Common Stock is available throughout the 30-day redemption period except if the Public Warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis and such cashless exercise is exempt from registration under the Securities Act. If and when the Public Warrants become redeemable by the Company, the Company may exercise its redemption right even if it is unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.

If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis.” In such event, each holder would pay the exercise price by surrendering the Public Warrants for that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the Public Warrants, multiplied by the difference between the exercise price of the Public Warrants and the “fair market value” by (y) the fair market value. The “fair market value” shall mean the average reported last sale price of the Common Stock for the 10 trading days ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of Public Warrants.

NOTE 5. PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Simultaneously with the Initial Public Offering, Mr. Weil, the Macquarie sponsor and Martin E. Schloss, the Company’s Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, purchased an aggregate of 7,500,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $0.50 per warrant ($3,750,000 in the aggregate) in a private placement. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable to purchase one-half share of Common Stock at $5.75 per half share. The Private Placement Warrants may be exercised only for a whole number of shares of Common Stock. No fractional shares will be issued upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants. The purchase price of the Private Placement Warrants was 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 Combination Period, the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants will be used, in part, to fund the redemption of the Company’s public shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law). There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Private Placement Warrants.

The Sponsors have agreed that the Private Placement Warrants and the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days following consummation of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or such purchasers’ permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or such purchasers’ 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. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination, then the proceeds will be part of the liquidating distribution to the public stockholders and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.

NOTE 6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares

On July 11, 2014, the Company issued 2,875,000 shares of Common Stock to the Sponsors, of which an aggregate of 575,000 shares were returned to the Company and subsequently cancelled (the “founder shares”) on October 24, 2014, for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000. As a result of the underwriters’ determination not to exercise their over-allotment option, an additional 300,000 founder shares were forfeited. The founder shares are identical to the shares of Common Stock included in the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that (1) the founder shares are subject to certain transfer restrictions, as described in more detail below, and (2) the Company’s initial stockholders have agreed: (i) to waive their redemption rights with respect to their founder shares in connection with the consummation of a Business Combination and (ii) to waive their redemption rights with respect to their founder shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, the Company’s initial stockholders will be entitled to redemption rights with respect to any public shares they hold by way of public market purchase if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within such time period. If the Company submits a Business Combination to its public stockholders for a vote, the initial stockholders have agreed to vote their founder shares and any public shares purchased in favor of a Business Combination.

(Unaudited)

The Company’s initial stockholders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their founder shares until the earlier to occur of: (1) one year after a Business Combination or (2) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after a Business Combination that results in all of the Company’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of Common Stock for cash, securities or other property (the “Lock Up Period”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the last sale price of the Common Stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after a Business Combination, the founder shares will be released from the lock-up.

Convertible Promissory Notes

On March 16, 2016, the Company entered into convertible promissory notes with the Sponsors, whereby the Sponsors loaned the Company an aggregate of $500,000 (“Convertible Promissory Notes”) in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. The Convertible Promissory Notes are non-interest bearing, and due on the date on which the Company consummates a Business Combination. In the event that a Business Combination does not occur, the Sponsors would become general unsecured creditors of the Company. Each of the Convertible Promissory Notes are convertible, in whole or in part, at the election of the Sponsor holding such note, upon the consummation of a Business Combination. Upon such election, the Convertible Promissory Notes will convert into warrants, at a price of $0.50 per warrant. These warrants will be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. As such, each warrant is exercisable for one-half of one share of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $5.75 per half share.

The Convertible Promissory Notes were issued pursuant to the Expense Advancement Agreement, dated as of October 24, 2014, by and among the Company and the Sponsors, pursuant to which each Sponsor committed to fund up to $250,000 to the Company for the Company’s expenses relating to investigating and selecting a target business and other working capital requirements. In the event that the Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from the Trust Account may be used for such repayment.

As of March 31, 2016, $500,000 was outstanding under the Convertible Promissory Notes.

NOTE 7. COMMITMENTS & CONTINGENCIES

Potential Transaction Fee Arrangements

The Company entered into fee arrangements with certain service providers and advisors pursuant to which certain fees incurred by the Company in connection with a potential Business Combination would be deferred and become payable only if the Company consummated such potential Business Combination. If the potential Business Combination did not occur, the Company would not be required to pay these contingent fees. Effective October 26, 2015, all efforts related to such potential Business Combination were terminated and, accordingly, all contingent fees that had been previously incurred are no longer due or payable.

Administrative Services Agreement

The Company entered into an Administrative Services Agreement commencing on October 24, 2014 pursuant to which the Company pays an affiliate of the Hydra Sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, utilities and secretarial support. Upon the completion of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. The Company paid $30,000 in fees during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.

Contingent Forward Purchase Contract

On October 24, 2014, the Macquarie sponsor entered into a contingent forward purchase contract with the Company (the “Contingent Forward Purchase Contract”) to purchase, in a private placement for gross proceeds of approximately $20,000,000 to occur concurrently with the consummation of the Business Combination, 2,000,000 Units on the same terms as the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering at $10.00 per Unit (which includes 2,000,000 rights which will be exchanged for 200,000 shares of Common Stock) (“Private Placement Units”), and 500,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock on the same terms as the sale of the founder shares to the Sponsors prior to the Initial Public Offering (“Private Placement Shares”). The funds from the sale of the Private Placement Units and the Private Placement Shares will be used as part of the consideration to the sellers in the Business Combination; any excess funds from the Private Placement Units will be used for working capital in the post-transaction company. This commitment is independent of the percentage of stockholders electing to redeem their public shares.

(Unaudited)

As a closing condition to the Contingent Forward Purchase Contract, the Company has agreed not to consummate a Business Combination without the Macquarie sponsor’s consent; provided, however, that if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination within the Combination Period, and the Company’s board of directors (other than the Macquarie sponsor designee) unanimously votes in favor of a proposed Business Combination and the Macquarie sponsor decides to withhold its vote on the Business Combination, the Macquarie sponsor will be, subject to customary conditions, obligated to pay a $740,000 fee to the Hydra sponsor. In such event, the Private Placement Warrants purchased by the Macquarie sponsor and the Hydra sponsor will expire worthless. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Macquarie sponsor withholds consent to consummate a Business Combination because of regulatory reasons or the Business Combination involves a competitor to the Macquarie sponsor, its affiliates, or an entity in which the Macquarie sponsor or an affiliate has an equity interest, then the Macquarie sponsor is not obligated to pay the $740,000 fee, the Company may proceed with such Business Combination, the Macquarie sponsor will be permitted to sell its Private Placement Warrants and founder shares (provided that the transferee agrees to be bound by the transfer restrictions, lock-up provisions, registration rights, voting obligations and other such restrictions and rights of the transferred Private Placement Warrants and founder shares), the Hydra sponsor will use its best efforts to facilitate a sale of the Macquarie sponsor’s Private Placement Warrants and founder shares, and the term of the Macquarie sponsor’s nominee for the Board of Directors will automatically terminate and such board seat will remain vacant until filled by a successor duly appointed by the Hydra sponsor.

Right of First Refusal

Pursuant to an agreement dated October 24, 2014, the Company has granted Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc. (“Macquarie Capital”), an affiliate of the Macquarie sponsor, a right of first refusal for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering to provide certain financial advisory, underwriting, capital raising, and other services for which they may receive fees. The amount of fees the Company pays to Macquarie Capital will be based upon the prevailing market for similar services rendered by global full-service investment banks for such transactions, and will be subject to the review of the Company’s Audit Committee pursuant to the Audit Committee’s policies and procedures relating to transactions that may present conflicts of interest.

Registration Rights

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into on October 24, 2014 with the Company’s initial stockholders and purchasers of the Private Placement Warrants and the Contingent Forward Purchase Contract, the Company is required to register certain securities for sale under the Securities Act. Each of the sponsors will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form registration demands, that the Company register such securities for sale under the Securities Act and to have the securities covered thereby registered for resale pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act. In addition, these holders will have “piggy-back” registration rights to include their securities in other registration statements filed by the Company. However, the registration rights agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable Lock Up Period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement

The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of up to 6.0%, of which two and one-half percent (2.5%), or $2,000,000, was paid in cash at the closing of the Initial Public Offering on October 29, 2014, and up to three and one-half percent (3.5%), or $2,800,000, has been deferred. The deferred fee will be payable in cash upon the closing of a Business Combination. 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.

NOTE 8. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Preferred Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share in one or more series. The Company’s board of directors will be authorized to fix the voting rights, if any, designations, powers, preferences, the relative, participating, optional or other special rights and any qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, applicable to the shares of each series. At March 31, 2016, there were no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding.

Common Stock — The Company is authorized to issue 29,000,000 shares of Common Stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Common Stock are entitled to one vote for each common share. At March 31, 2016, there were 3,040,098 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding (excluding 6,959,902 shares of Common Stock subject to possible redemption).

NOTE 9. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Company follows the guidance in ASC 820 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.

The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for an asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
Level 2: Observable inputs other than Level 1 inputs. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs based on our assessment of the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on May 30, 2014 as a Delaware corporation and formed for the purpose of acquiring, through a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, recapitalization or other similar business transaction, one or more operating businesses or assets. We intend to effectuate our Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of our initial public offering and a sale of warrants in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the completion of our initial public offering, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

The issuance of additional shares of our stock in a Business Combination:

· may significantly dilute the equity interest of existing stockholders;
· may subordinate the rights of holders of common stock if preferred stock is issued with rights senior to those afforded our common stock;
· could cause a change of control if a substantial number of shares of our common stock are issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could result in the resignation or removal of our present officers and directors;
· may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us by diluting the stock ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to obtain control of us; and
· may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our common stock, rights and/or warrants.

Similarly, if we issue debt securities, it could result in:

· default and foreclosure on our assets if our cash flows after an initial Business Combination are insufficient to repay our debt obligations;
· acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we make all principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain covenants that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves without a waiver or renegotiation of such covenants;
· our immediate repayment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the debt security is payable on demand;
· our inability to obtain necessary additional financing if the debt security contains covenants restricting our ability to obtain such financing while the debt security is outstanding;
· our inability to pay dividends on our common stock;
· using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our common stock, if declared, expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes;
· limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our business and in the industry in which we operate;
· increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation; and
· limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution of our strategy and other purposes and other disadvantages compared to our competitors who have less debt.

We expect to continue to incur significant costs in the pursuit of our acquisition plans. We cannot assure you that our plans to raise capital or to complete our initial Business Combination will be successful.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any operating revenues to date. All activity from inception to March 31, 2016 relates to our formation, our initial public offering and private placement and the identification and evaluation of prospective candidates for a Business Combination. Since the completion of our initial public offering, we have not generated any operating revenues and will not generate such revenues until after the completion of our Business Combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and securities held, which we expect to be insignificant in view of the low yields on short-term government securities. We expect to incur increased 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 ended March 31, 2016, we had a net loss of $246,360, consisting of $281,231 of target identification expenses, operating costs and due diligence expenses, offset by $21,174 of interest income and $13,697 of unrealized gains on marketable securities held in the Trust Account. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, we had a net loss of $186,287, consisting of $195,089 of operating costs and target identification expenses, offset by $8,802 of interest income.

13

Liquidity and Capital Resources

On October 29, 2014, we consummated our initial public offering of 8,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit generating gross proceeds of $80,000,000. Simultaneously with the closing of our initial public offering, we consummated the private sale of an aggregate of 7,500,000 placement warrants, each exercisable to purchase one-half of one share of our common stock at $5.75 per half share ($11.50 per whole share), to Mr. Weil, our Macquarie sponsor and Mr. Schloss at a price of $0.50 per warrant, generating gross proceeds of $3,750,000. We received net proceeds from our initial public offering and sale of the placement warrants of $81,326,704, net of $2,000,000 cash paid for underwriting fees and $423,296 cash paid for offering costs. In addition, up to $2,800,000 of underwriting fees were deferred until the closing of a Business Combination. Upon the closing of our initial public offering and the private placement, $80,000,000 was placed into a trust account, while the remaining funds of $1,326,704 were placed in an account outside of the trust account for working capital purposes.

As of March 31, 2016, we had cash and securities held in the trust account of $80,044,350, substantially all of which is invested in U.S. treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less. Interest income on the balance in the trust account may be available to us to pay taxes and up to $50,000 of our dissolution expenses. Through March 31, 2016, we did not withdraw any funds from the interest earned on the trust account. Other than deferred underwriting fees payable in the event of a Business Combination, no amounts are payable to the underwriters of our initial public offering.

As of March 31, 2016, we had cash of $519,976 held outside the trust account (mainly from the proceeds of convertible promissory notes), which is available for use by us to cover the costs associated with identifying a target business, negotiating a Business Combination, due diligence procedures and other general corporate uses.

We intend to use the funds held outside the trust account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, pay for travel expenditures, structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination and pay taxes to the extent the interest earned on the trust account is insufficient to pay our taxes.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, cash used in operating activities amounted to $236,263, mainly resulting from a net loss of $246,360, offset by an increase in our accounts payable and accrued expenses. As of March 31, 2016, we had current liabilities of $3,265,618, primarily representing amounts owed to lawyers, accountants and consultants who have advised the Company on matters related to a potential Business Combination. There can be no assurance that we will be able to make payment in full of the amounts due to said advisors. Funds in the trust account are not available for this purpose absent an initial Business Combination. If a Business Combination is not consummated, we would lack the resources to pay all of the liabilities that have been incurred by us to date or after and we may lack the resources needed to consummate another Business Combination. We entered into fee arrangements with certain service providers and advisors pursuant to which certain fees incurred by us in connection with a potential Business Combination would be deferred and become payable only if we consummated such potential Business Combination. If the potential Business Combination did not occur, we would not be required to pay these contingent fees. Effective October 26, 2015, all efforts related to such potential Business Combination were terminated and, accordingly, all contingent fees that had been previously incurred are no longer due and payable. There can be no assurances that we will complete a Business Combination.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account (less amounts used to pay taxes and deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our Business Combination. We estimate our annual franchise tax obligations, based on our assets and the number of shares of our common stock authorized and outstanding after the completion of the initial public offering, to be approximately $85,000, for which we anticipate making quarterly estimated tax payments throughout 2016. Our annual income tax obligations will depend on the amount of interest income earned in the trust account. We do not expect the interest earned on the amount in the trust account will be sufficient to pay all of our tax obligations. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

Our Macquarie sponsor entered into a contingent forward purchase contract to purchase, in a private placement for gross proceeds of approximately $20,000,000 to occur concurrently with the consummation of our initial Business Combination, 2,000,000 Private Placement Units (which includes 2,000,000 rights which will be exchanged for 200,000 shares of common stock) on substantially the same terms as the sale of units in our initial public offering at $10.00 per unit and 500,000 shares of common stock on the same terms as the sale of shares of common stock to our sponsors prior to our initial public offering. The funds from the sale of the Private Placement Units may be used as part of the consideration to the sellers in the initial Business Combination; any excess funds from this private placement may be used for working capital in the post-transaction company. This commitment is independent of the percentage of stockholders electing to redeem their shares and provides us with an increased minimum funding level for the initial Business Combination. The contingent forward purchase contract is contingent upon, among other things, our Macquarie sponsor approving the Business Combination, which approval can be withheld for any reason.

14

We may need to raise additional capital through loans or additional investments from our Sponsors, stockholders, officers, directors, or third parties. On March 16, 2016, we entered into convertible promissory notes with the Sponsors, whereby the Sponsors loaned us an aggregate of $500,000 (“Convertible Promissory Notes”) in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination. In the event that a Business Combination does not occur, the Sponsors would become general unsecured creditors of the Company. The Convertible Promissory Notes are non-interest bearing, and due on the date on which we consummate a Business Combination. Each of the Convertible Promissory Notes are convertible, in whole or in part, at the election of the Sponsor holding such note, upon the consummation of a Business Combination. Upon such election, the Convertible Promissory Notes will convert into warrants, at a price of $0.50 per warrant. These warrants will be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. As such, each warrant is exercisable for one-half of one share of common stock at an exercise price of $5.75 per half share.

Other than as described above, our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds, from time to time or at any time, in whatever amount they deem reasonable in their sole discretion, to meet our working capital needs.

Other than as described above, none of the Sponsors, stockholders, officers or directors, or third parties, are under any obligation to advance us funds, or to invest in us. Accordingly, we may not be able to obtain additional financing. If we are unable to raise additional capital, we may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of our business plan, and reducing overhead expenses. We cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to us on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

If we complete our initial Business Combination, we expect to repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the trust account released to us. Otherwise, such loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the trust account. 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 may be used for such repayment. Up to $1,000,000 (including the $500,000 of convertible promissory notes discussed above) of all loans made to us are convertible at the option of the lender into warrants of the post-Business Combination entity at a price of $0.50 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. The terms of such loans, if any, by our officers and directors (other than the $500,000 in loans which our sponsors have committed to make in the aggregate) have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans.

Off-balance sheet financing arrangements

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements. We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or purchased any non-financial assets.

Contractual obligations

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities other than an agreement to pay an affiliate of our Hydra sponsor a monthly fee of $10,000 for office space, utilities and administrative support provided to us. We began incurring these fees on October 24, 2014 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of the Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation.

Significant Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with GAAP 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 financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following significant accounting policy:

Common stock subject to possible redemption

We account for our common stock subject to possible conversion in accordance with the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” Common stock subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as a liability instrument and is measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock is classified as stockholders’ equity. Our common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the common stock subject to possible redemption is presented as temporary equity, outside of the stockholders’ equity section of our balance sheet.

Recent accounting pronouncements

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, “Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern” (“ASU 2014-15”). ASU 2014-15 provides guidance on management’s responsibility in evaluating whether there is substantial doubt about a company’s ability to continue as a going concern and about related footnote disclosures. For each reporting period, management will be required to evaluate whether there are conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about a company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date the financial statements are issued. The amendments in ASU 2014-15 are effective for annual reporting periods ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual and interim periods thereafter. Early adoption is permitted. We will adopt the methodologies prescribed by ASU 2014-15 by the date required, and we do not anticipate that the adoption of ASU 2014-15 will have a material effect on our financial position or results of operations.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

The net proceeds of our initial public offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants held in the trust account are invested in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer (together, the “Certifying Officers”), we carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on the foregoing, our Certifying Officers concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this Report.

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under 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 management, including our Certifying Officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) during the most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
