General and Administrative Services
Commencing on the date the Units are first listed on The New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”), the Company has agreed to pay the Sponsor a total of $20,000 per month for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support for up to 18 months, assuming the Sponsor does not extend the period of time to complete an Initial Business Combination pursuant to its Certificate of Incorporation, which includes up to approximately $13,750 per month payable to the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (the “CFO”). Upon completion of the Initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. During the three months ended March 31, 2023 and March 31, 2022, the Company recorded $60,000 and $43,871 of administrative fees respectively.

Upon completion of the Initial Public Offering, the Company ceased paying these monthly fees. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, no amount was outstanding on the accompanying condensed balance sheets.
Related Party Loans
In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). Such Working Capital Loans would be evidenced by promissory notes. The notes may be repaid upon completion of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $2,000,000 of the notes may be converted upon completion of a Business Combination into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant. Such warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were no amounts outstanding under the Working Capital Loans.
Profits Interest Awards
On January 25, 2022, the Sponsor granted 135,000 profits interest units in the Sponsor to certain key directors, consultants and the Chief Financial Officer in consideration for their future services to or for the benefit of the Company and for any assistance with the identification, relationship building, assessment, and assistance in the valuation of potential business combination opportunities for the Company. The profits interest units generally vest subject to the applicable holder’s continued services through the applicable vesting date, provided that upon a termination for cause or a breach of restrictive covenants, all profits interest units held by the applicable holder will be forfeited. The profit interest units have a grant date fair value of $6.54 per unit or an aggregate of $883,001 and the expense associated with these awards will be recognized over the applicable vesting period which is expected to be 18 months.
The Company measured the fair value of the units on the grant date of the award utilizing a valuation model which considers certain assumptions. These assumptions include the probability of completion of an initial business combination and estimated concessions. During the three months ended March 31, 2023 and March 31, 2022, the Company recorded $145,550 and $105,119 in expense related to the profits interest units respectively.
