CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This quarterly report, including, without limitation, statements under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”). These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the words “believes,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “may,” “will,” “potential,” “projects,” “predicts,” “continue,” or “should,” or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology. There can be no assurance that actual results will not materially differ from expectations. Such statements include, but are not limited to, any statements relating to our ability to consummate any acquisition or other business combination and any other statements that are not statements of current or historical facts. These statements are based on management’s current expectations, but actual results may differ materially due to various factors, including, but not limited to:

our ability to complete our initial business combination;
our success in retaining or recruiting, or changes required in, our officers, key employees or directors following our initial business combination;
our officers and directors allocating their time to other businesses and potentially having conflicts of interest with our business or in approving our initial business combination, as a result of which they could then receive expense reimbursements and other benefits;
our potential ability to obtain additional financing to complete a business combination;
our pool of prospective target businesses;
the ability of our officers and directors to generate a number of potential investment opportunities;
potential changes in control of us if we acquire one or more target businesses for stock;
our public securities’ potential liquidity and trading;
the lack of a market for our securities;
our expectations regarding the time during which we will be an “emerging growth company” under the JOBS Act;
our use of proceeds not held in the trust account; or
our financial performance following our initial public offering (“IPO”) or following our initial business combination.

The forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on us. Future developments affecting us may not be those that we have anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) and other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those factors described under the heading “Risk Factors.” Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. These risks and others described under “Risk Factors” may not be exhaustive.

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. We caution you that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and that our actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and developments in the industry in which we operate may differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report. In addition, even if our results or operations, financial condition and liquidity, and developments in the industry in which we operate are consistent with the forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report, those results or developments may not be indicative of results or developments in subsequent periods.

NOTE 1 ─ ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS

Accretion Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on February 26, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”).

The Company is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of consummating a Business Combination, however, the Company intends to concentrate its efforts to focus identifying businesses in the upstream energy industry or in related businesses in the midstream, services, software or commodity risk management sectors. The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

As of June 30, 2023 the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from February 26, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2023, relates to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”), which is described below, and since the offering identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition targets for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of a Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income or dividend income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

On October 25, 2021, the Company closed its Initial Public Offering of 18,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit (the “Units” and, with respect to the shares of common stock included in the Units, the “Public Shares”) which is discussed in Note 3 and the sale of 7,300,000 warrants (each, a “Private Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Private Warrant in a private placement to its sponsor, Accretion Acquisition Sponsor, LLC (the “Sponsor”) and its underwriters that closed simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering (as described in Note 4). The Company has listed the Units on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”).

Transaction costs amounted to $11.94 million consisting of $4.14 million in cash of underwriting commissions, $7.25 million of deferred underwriting commissions and $0.55 million of other offering costs.

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete a Business Combination with one or more operating businesses or assets that together have an aggregate fair market value equal to at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (as defined below, net of amounts disbursed to management for working capital purposes, if permitted, and excluding the amount of any deferred underwriting commissions) at the time of the Company’s signing a definitive agreement in connection with its initial Business Combination. The Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise acquires an interest in the target business or assets sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”).

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering on October 25, 2021, the Company deposited $181.80 million ($10.10 per Unit) from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering in the trust account (“Trust Account”), located in the United States and invested only in U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 185 days or less or in any open-ended investment company that holds itself out as a money market fund selected by the Company meeting certain conditions of Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the funds held in the Trust Account, as described below.

NOTE 1 ─ ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS (Continued)

On October 27, 2021, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full (see Note 6), according to which, on October 28, 2021, the Company consummated the sale of an additional 2,700,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, and the sale of an additional 810,000 Private Warrants, at $1.00 per Private Warrant, generating total gross proceeds of $27.81 million, and incurring additional cash underwriting commissions of approximately $0.54 million and deferred underwriting discount of approximately $0.95 million. The proceeds from the sale of the additional Units were deposited into the Trust Account, bringing the aggregate proceeds held in the Trust Account to $209.07 million.

The Company will provide its holders of the outstanding Public Shares (the “public stockholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a stockholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek stockholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, solely in its discretion. The public stockholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account (initially anticipated to be $10.10 per Public Share, plus any pro rata income earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations). There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Public Shares subject to redemption will be recorded at redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.”

The Company will only proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 either prior to or upon such consummation of a Business Combination and, if the Company seeks stockholder approval, a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a stockholder vote is not required by applicable law or stock exchange rules and the Company does not decide to hold a stockholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, stockholder approval of the transaction is required by applicable law or stock exchange rules, or the Company decides to obtain stockholder approval for business or other reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. If the Company seeks stockholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor has agreed to vote its Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5), and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of approving a Business Combination. Additionally, each public stockholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction or do not vote at all.

Notwithstanding the above, if the Company seeks shareholder approval of a Business Combination and it does not conduct redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Certificate of Incorporation provides that a public shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder 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 more than an aggregate of 20% or more of the Public Shares, without the prior consent of the Company.

The Sponsor has agreed (a) to waive its redemption rights with respect to its Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5) and Public Shares held by it in connection with the completion of a Business Combination and (b) not to propose an amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (i) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to allow redemption in connection with the Company’s initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination or (ii) with respect to any other provision relating to stockholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity, unless the Company provides the public stockholders with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares in conjunction with any such amendment.

NOTE 1 ─ ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS (Continued)

The Company initially had until April 25, 2023 to complete a Business Combination, which was extended by the Charter Amendment (as defined below). Following the Charter Amendment, the Company has until the Termination Date (as defined below) (the “Combination Period”) to complete a Business Combination. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account including income earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders’ rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining stockholders and the Company’s board of directors, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s warrants, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period.

The Sponsor has agreed to waive its liquidation rights with respect to the Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5) if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the Sponsor acquires Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, such Public Shares will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the assets remaining available for distribution will be less than the Initial Public Offering price per Unit of $10.10.

In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or 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 the lesser of (1) $10.10 per Public Share and (2) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, less taxes payable, provided that such liability will not apply to claims by a third party or prospective target business who executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account nor will it apply 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”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (except the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses and 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 1 ─ ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS (Continued)

On March 28, 2023, the Company filed a definitive proxy statement for a stockholder meeting on April 14, 2023 (the “Stockholder Meeting”) to seek approval from its stockholders to extend the date (the “Termination Date”) by which the Company has to consummate a Business Combination (as defined below) (the “Charter Extension”) from April 25, 2023 (the “Original Termination Date”) to July 25, 2023 (the “Charter Extension Date”) and to allow the Company, without another stockholder vote, to elect to extend the Termination Date to consummate a Business Combination on a monthly basis up to five times by an additional one month each time after the Charter Extension Date, by resolution of the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), if requested by the Sponsor, and upon five days’ advance notice prior to the applicable Termination Date, until December 25, 2023 (each, an “Additional Charter Extension Date”) or a total of up to eight months after the Original Termination Date, unless the closing of a Business Combination shall have occurred prior thereto (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”) and (ii) an adjournment proposal to adjourn the Stockholder Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary, to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies if, based upon the tabulated vote at the time of the Stockholder Meeting, there are insufficient shares of the Company’s common stock represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct business at the Stockholder Meeting or at the time of the Stockholder Meeting to approve the Extension Amendment Proposal (the “Adjournment Proposal”) (unless the Company determines that it is not necessary to hold the Stockholder Meeting as described in the accompanying proxy statement).

Additionally, if the Extension Amendment Proposal is approved and the Charter Extension becomes effective, within five business days of the date of the Stockholder Meeting , the Sponsor (or one or more of its affiliates, members or third-party designees) (the “Lender”) shall make a deposit into the Trust Account in an amount equal to the lesser of (a) an aggregate of $240,000 or (b) $0.12 for each share of Public Stock that is not redeemed in connection with the Extension Amendment Proposal, in exchange for a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note issued by the Company to the Lender. In addition, if the Extension Amendment Proposal is approved and the Charter Extension becomes effective, in the event that the Company has not consummated a Business Combination by July 25, 2023, without approval of the Company’s stockholders, the Company may, by resolution of the Board, if requested by the Sponsor, and upon five days’ advance notice prior to the applicable Termination Date, extend the Termination Date up to five times, each by one additional month (for a total of up to eight additional months to complete a Business Combination), provided that the Lender will deposit an amount equal to the lesser of (a) an aggregate of $80,000 per month or (b) $0.04 per month for each share of Public Stock that is not redeemed in connection with the Extension Amendment Proposal for each subsequent calendar month (commencing on July 25, 2023 and on the 25th day of each subsequent month), for an aggregate deposit of up to $400,000 (if all five additional monthly extensions are exercised), in exchange for a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note issued by the Company to the Lender. If the Company completes a Business Combination, it will repay the amounts loaned under the promissory note. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination by the applicable Termination Date, such promissory note will be repaid only from funds held outside of the Trust Account or will be forfeited, eliminated, or otherwise forgiven.

On April 14, 2023, the Company filed an amendment to its amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter Amendment”) in connection with the approval of the Extension Amendment Proposal. On April 21, 2023, the Company filed the Charter Amendment with the Delaware Secretary of State.

On April 14, 2023, at the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders in connection with the Extension, the holders of 15,395,704 Class A ordinary shares of the Company properly exercised their right to redeem their shares for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.33 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $159.0 million, leaving approximately $53 million in the Trust Account. On June 28, 2023, the Company liquidated the cash held in the Trust Account and now holds the funds in an interest bearing demand deposit account until the earlier of the consummation of the Business Combination or liquidation.

In connection with the Extension Amendment Proposal, $240,000 was deposited in the Trust Account on April 21, 2023.

Liquidity and Going Concern

As of June 30, 2023, the Company had $1,653 in its operating bank account, and $54.98 million of cash held in the Trust Account to be used for a Business Combination or to repurchase or redeem its common stock in connection therewith and a working capital deficiency of $2.62 million.

NOTE 1 ─ ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS (Continued)

Liquidity and Going Concern (Continued)

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, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination.

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with ASC Topic 205-40 Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern, the Company has until the Extended Date to consummate a Business Combination. If a Business Combination is not consummated by this date and an extension not requested by the sponsor, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Although the Company intends to consummate a Business Combination on or before the Additional Charter Extension Date, it is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a Business Combination by this time. Management has determined that the liquidity condition, coupled with the mandatory liquidation, should a Business Combination not occur, and an extension is not requested by the sponsor, and potential subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Further to the approval of the Extension Amendment Proposal, the Company’s plan is to complete a Business Combination on or prior to December 25, 2023, however it is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a Business Combination or obtain an extension by this time. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after December 25, 2023.

The Company will need to raise additional capital through loans or additional investments through December 25, 2023, from its Sponsor, stockholders, officers, directors, or third parties. The Company’s officers, directors and Sponsor 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. 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.

Risks and Uncertainties

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 a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations, and/or search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of these financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Additionally, as a result of the military action commenced in February 2022 by the Russian Federation in the country of Ukraine and related economic sanctions, the Company’s ability to consummate a Business Combination, or the operations of a target business with which the Company ultimately consummates a Business Combination, may be materially and adversely affected. In addition, the Company’s ability to consummate a transaction may be dependent on the ability to raise equity and debt financing which may be impacted by these events, including as a result of increased market volatility, or decreased market liquidity in third-party financing being unavailable on terms acceptable to the Company or at all. The impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy and the specific impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and/or ability to consummate a Business Combination are not yet determinable. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the “IR Act”) was signed into federal law. The IR Act provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases of stock by publicly traded U.S. domestic corporations and certain U.S. domestic subsidiaries of publicly traded foreign corporations occurring on or after January 1, 2023. The excise tax is imposed on the repurchasing corporation itself, not its shareholders from which shares are repurchased. The amount of the excise tax is generally 1% of the fair market value of the shares repurchased at the time of the repurchase. However, for purposes of calculating the excise tax, repurchasing corporations are permitted to net the fair market value of certain new stock issuances against the fair market value of stock repurchases during the same taxable year. In addition, certain other exceptions may apply to the excise tax. The U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) has been given authority to provide regulations and other guidance to carry out and prevent the abuse or avoidance of the excise tax.

Any redemption or other repurchase that occurs after December 31, 2022, in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise, may be subject to the excise tax. Whether and to what extent the Company would be subject to the excise tax in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise would depend on a number of factors, including (i) the fair market value of the redemptions and repurchases in connection with the Business Combination, extension or otherwise, (ii) the structure of a Business Combination, (iii) the nature and amount of any “PIPE” or other equity issuances in connection with a Business Combination (or otherwise issued not in connection with a Business Combination but issued within the same taxable year of a Business Combination) and (iv) the content of regulations and other guidance from the Treasury. In addition, because the excise tax would be payable by the Company and not by the redeeming holder, the mechanics of any required payment of the excise tax have not been determined. The foregoing could cause a reduction in the cash available on hand to complete a Business Combination and in the Company’s ability to complete a Business Combination.

As of June 30, 2023, $1.6 million was incurred by the Company as excise tax expense in connection with the redemption of 15,395,704 shares of common stock previously held by public stockholders.

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 8 of Regulation S-X of the 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 complete 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 period ended December 31, 2022, as filed with the SEC on April 3, 2023.

Emerging Growth Company

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as amended by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

Further, 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 an emerging growth 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 election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a 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.

This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP 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 financial statements 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 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 confirming events. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company had $1,653 in cash as of June 30, 2023. 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 June 30, 2023.

Cash Held in Trust Account

At June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $54.98 million and $212.09 million, respectively, of assets held in the Trust Account in an interest-bearing demand deposit account and in trading securities respectively.

On April 14, 2023, stockholders of the Company holding 15,395,704 shares of the Company’s common stock exercised their right to redeem such shares for a pro rate portion of the funds in the Trust Account. As a result, approximately $159.0 million (or approximately $10.33 per share) was removed from the Trust Account to pay such holders on April 24, 2023. The Company has recorded a liability for estimated associated excise tax duty of to the amount of $1.59 million as of balance sheet date.

On June 28, 2023, the Company liquidated the cash held in the Trust Account and now holds the funds in an interest bearing demand deposit account until the earlier of the consummation of the Business Combination or liquidation.

Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering

The Company complies with the requirements of the ASC 340-10-S99-1. Offering costs are charged against the carrying value of common stock or stockholders’ deficit based on the relative value of the shares of common stock, the warrants and the rights, to the proceeds received from the Units sold upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred through the Initial Public Offering that were directly related to the Initial Public Offering. The Company incurred offering costs amounting to $11.94 million as a result of the Initial Public Offering consisting of $4.14 million of underwriting commissions paid in cash, $7.25 million of deferred underwriting commissions, and $0.55 million of other offering costs. As such, the Company recorded $10.77 million of offering costs as a reduction of temporary equity and $1.17 million of offering costs as a reduction of permanent equity.

Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

All of the 20,700,000 shares of common stock sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering contain a redemption feature. In accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification 480-10-S99-3A “Classification and Measurement of Redeemable Securities”, 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 ASC 480.

The change in the carrying value of redeemable shares of common stock resulted in charges against accumulated deficit.

As of June 30, 2023, and December 31, 2022, shares of common stock sold as part of the Units reflected on the balance sheets are reconciled in the following table:

Net Profit (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock

The Company applies the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. The contractual formula utilized to calculate the redemption amount approximates fair value. The Class feature to redeem at fair value means that there is effectively only one class of stock. Changes in fair value are not considered a dividend of the purposes of the numerator in the earnings per share calculation. Net loss per common stock is computed by dividing the pro rata net loss between the redeemable common stock and the non-redeemable common stock by the weighted average number of common stock outstanding for the period. The calculation of diluted loss per common stock does not consider the effect of the warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events and the inclusion of such warrants would be anti-dilutive.

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 corporation limit 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.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

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.

NOTE 2 ─ SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method, which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined on the basis of the differences between the financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The effect of a change in tax rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $682,949 based on activities through June 30, 2023.

The effective tax rate (ETR) from continuing operations was 29.01% and 26.40% for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2023.

The Company recognizes deferred tax assets to the extent that it believes these assets are more likely than not to be realized. In making such a determination, the Company considers all available positive and negative evidence, including future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences, projected future taxable income, tax-planning strategies, and results of recent operations. If the Company determines that it would be able to realize its deferred tax assets in the future in excess of their net recorded amount, the Company would make an adjustment to the deferred tax asset valuation allowance, which would reduce the provision for income taxes.

The Company records uncertain tax positions in accordance with ASC 740 on the basis of a two-step process whereby (1) it determines whether it is more likely than not that the tax positions will be sustained on the basis of the technical merits of the position and (2) for those tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold, the Company recognizes the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely to be realized upon ultimate settlement with the related tax authority.

The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits within the income tax expense line in the accompanying statement of operations.

Warrants

ASC 480 requires a reporting entity to classify certain freestanding financial instruments as liabilities (or in some cases as assets). ASC 480-10-S99 addresses concerns raised by the SEC regarding the financial statements’ classification and measurement of securities subject to mandatory redemption requirements or whose redemption is outside the control of the issuer. If the stock subject to mandatory redemption provisions represents the only shares in the reporting entity, it must report instruments in the liabilities section of its statement of financial position. The stock subject must then describe them as shares subject to mandatory redemption, so as to distinguish the instruments from other financial statements liabilities. The Company concludes that the Public Warrants (defined in Note 3) do not exhibit any of the above characteristics and, therefore, are outside the scope of ASC 480.

In addition to the 16,300,000 warrants (representing 9,000,000 Public Warrants (as defined at Note 3) included in the units and 7,300,000 Private Warrants) issued by the Company at the close of the Initial Public Offering, a further 2,160,000 warrants (representing 1,350,000 Public Warrants (as defined at Note 3) included in the units and 810,000 Private Warrants) were issued as a result of the underwriters’ full exercise of the over-allotment option. All warrants were issued in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity. Such guidance provides that because the warrants meet the criteria for equity treatment.

Recent Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (ASU 2016-13), which requires an entity to utilize a new impairment model known as the current expected credit loss (CECL) model to estimate its lifetime “expected credit loss” and record an allowance that, when deducted from the amortized cost basis of the financial assets and certain other instruments, including but not limited to available-for-sale debt securities. Credit losses relating to available-for-sale debt securities will be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a direct write-down to the security. ASU 2016-13 requires a cumulative effect adjustment to the balance sheet as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) and Leases (Topic 842): Effective Dates, which defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 for all entities except SEC reporting companies that are not smaller reporting companies. ASU 2016-13 will be effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2023. The accounting pronouncement was adopted effective January 1, 2023 with no impact to its financial statements.

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

NOTE 3 ─ INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

Pursuant to the Initial Public Offering, the Company sold 18,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $10.00 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, one right (“Right”) and one-half of one warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each Right will convert to one-tenth (1/10) share of common stock upon consummation of Business Combination (see Note 7). Each whole Public Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 7).

On October 27, 2021, the underwriters fully exercised their over-allotment option and, on October 28, 2021, purchased an additional 2,700,000 Units, generating additional gross proceeds of approximately $27.00 million, and incurring additional cash underwriting commissions of approximately $0.54 million and deferred underwriting discount of approximately $0.95 million. In connection with the sale of Units pursuant to the over-allotment option, the Company sold an additional 810,000 Private Warrants to the Sponsor and the underwriters generating additional gross proceeds of approximately $0.81 million. A total of approximately $27.27 million of the net proceeds was deposited into the Trust Account, bringing the aggregate proceeds held in the Trust Account to approximately $209.07 million.

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, the Company granted the underwriters an option to purchase 2,700,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at the Initial Public Offering price, or $10.00 per share, for 45 days commencing on October 25, 2021 (grant date). Since this option extended beyond the closing of the Initial Public Offering, this option feature represented a call option that was accounted for under ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity. Accordingly, the call option has been separately accounted for at a fair value with the change in fair value between the grant date and October 27, 2021 recorded as other income. The Company used the Black-Scholes valuation model to determine the fair value of the call option at the grant date and again at October 27, 2021 (refer to Note 9 for fair value information).

NOTE 4 ─ PRIVATE WARRANTS

Concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Sponsor and the underwriters purchased an aggregate of 7,300,000 Private Warrants, generating gross proceeds of $7.30 million in aggregate in a private placement. Each Private Warrant is exercisable for one share of common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 7).

NOTE 4 ─ PRIVATE WARRANTS (Continued)

As a result of the underwriters’ election to fully exercise their over-allotment option on October 27, 2021, the Sponsor and the underwriters and its designees purchased an additional 810,000 Private Warrants, at a purchase price of $1.00 per Private Warrant.

If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Warrants held in the Trust Account will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Warrants will expire worthless.

NOTE 5 ─ RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares

On April 7, 2021, the Sponsor purchased 4,312,500 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25,000.

In September 2021, the Sponsor subsequently transferred an aggregate of 250,000 Founder Shares to the Company’s independent director nominees at the same price originally paid for such shares.

The sale of the Founder Shares to the Company’s independent director nominees is in the scope of FASB ASC Topic 718, “Compensation-Stock Compensation” (“ASC 718”). Under ASC 718, stock-based compensation associated with equity-classified awards is measured at fair value upon the grant date. The Company has assessed the fair value associated with the Founder Shares granted. The fair value of the 250,000 Founder Shares granted to the Company’s independent director nominees was $1.70 million or $6.80 per share. The Founder Shares granted to the Company’s independent director nominees will be offered back to the Sponsor at the same purchase price, in the event a person(s) no longer remained in such designated position upon the consummation of a Business Combination. The Sponsor will have 30 days from the offer date to acquire back these Founder Shares at the same purchase price.

In October 2021, the Company effected a dividend of 862,500 of the Company’s Founder Shares, which resulted in an aggregate of 5,175,000 Founder Shares outstanding. All share and associated amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share dividend.

The Founder Shares include an aggregate of up to 675,000 shares of common stock subject to forfeiture by the Sponsors to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment is not exercised in full or in part, so that the number of Founder Shares will collectively represent 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. On October 27, 2021, the underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment option. Thus, no share of common stock remains subject to forfeiture.

Founder Shares are subject to lock-up until the earlier of (A) 180 days after the completion of its initial Business Combination or (B) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after its initial Business Combination that results in all of its public stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.

Promissory Note — Related Party

In January 2023, the Company issued a promissory note with a principal amount of $73,250 (the “Note”) to the Sponsor. The Note is non-interest bearing and the principal balance of the Note is payable on the date on which the Company consummates its initial business combination. This Note will be forgiven, except to the extent that the Company has funds available to it, outside of the Trust Account established in connection with the Initial Public Offering.

On April 14, 2023, the Company filed the Charter Amendment in connection with the approval of the Extension Amendment Proposal. On April 21, 2023, the Company filed the Charter Amendment with the Delaware Secretary of State.

Promissory Note — Related Party (Continued)

On April 21, 2023, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note (the “Note 1”) to the Sponsor in the principal amount of $0.24 million in connection with the Charter Amendment.

Note 1 bears no interest and is due and payable upon the earlier of (a) the liquidation of the Company and (b) the closing date of the Business Combination. If the Business Combination is not consummated, the Note will not be repaid and all amounts owed thereunder will be forgiven except to the extent that the Company has funds available to it outside of its Trust Account established in connection with its Initial Public Offering.

On May 25, 2023, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note (the “Note 2”) to the Sponsor in the principal amount of $0.36 million.

Note 2 bears no interest and is due and payable upon the earlier of (a) the liquidation of the Company and (b) the closing date of the Business Combination. If the Business Combination is not consummated, the Note will not be repaid and all amounts owed thereunder will be forgiven except to the extent that the Company has funds available to it outside of its Trust Account established in connection with its Initial Public Offering.

As of June 30, 2023, $0.67 million was outstanding under promissory note - related party.

Related Party Loans

In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors or their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. 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.

The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1.5 million of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants of the post Business Combination entity. The warrants would be identical to the Private Warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. As of June 30, 2023, no Working Capital Loans were outstanding.

Related Party Payable

As of June 30, 2023, an amount of $0.24 million was payable to the Sponsor, consisting of filing fee of $60, accounting fees of $0.03 million, and professional fees of $8,513, paid on behalf of the Company and unpaid administrative support fees of $0.20 million.

As of December 31, 2022, an amount of $0.14 million was payable to the Sponsor, consisting of filing fee of $60, paid on behalf of the Company and unpaid administrative support fees of $0.14 million.

Administrative Support Agreement

Commencing on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering, the Company agreed to pay the Sponsor a total of up to $10,000 per month in the aggregate for up to 18 months for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support. Upon completion of the initial Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, the Company accrued $0.03 million for these services, and for the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company has accrued $0.06 million. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company accrued $0.03 million for these services, and for the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company has accrued $0.06 million. These amounts are included in the operating costs on accompanying condensed statements of operations.

NOTE 6 ─ COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Registration Rights

The holders of the Founder Shares, EBC Founder Shares (as defined in Note 7), and any warrants that may be issued in payment of Working Capital Loans made to Company (and underlying securities) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to an agreement entered into on October 20, 2021. The holders of a majority of these securities are entitled to make up to two demands that the Company register such securities. The holders of the majority of the Founder Shares can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time commencing three months prior to the date on which these shares of common stock are to be released from escrow. The holders of a majority of the EBC Founder Shares (as defined in Note 7) and units issued to the Sponsor, officers, directors or their affiliates in payment of Working Capital Loans made to the Company (or underlying securities) can elect to exercise these registration rights at any time after the consummation of a Business Combination. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the consummation of a Business Combination. The registration rights agreement does not contain liquidated damages or other cash settlement provisions resulting from delays in registering its securities. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement

The Company had granted the underwriters a 45-day option from the date of Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 2,700,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions.

The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or $3.60 million in the aggregate payable upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. $0.35 per unit, or $6.30 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. 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.

On October 27, 2021, the underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment option. As a result, they were entitled to an additional underwriting discount of $0.54 million in cash, and a further deferred underwriting discount of $0.95 million.

Advisory Agreement

Through June 30, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with the M&A advisors (who also served as the Company’s underwriters during the Initial Public Offering) in connection with the evaluation, pursuit and conduct of one or more proposed transactions for a potential Business Combination (the “Advisory Agreement”). At balance sheet date, fees for the services performed were contingent upon the closing of a Business Combination and therefore not included as liabilities on the accompanying balance sheets.

Engagement for Legal Services

The Company has a contingent fee arrangement with their legal counsel pursuant to which a flat fee of $3.00 million is payable to the Company’s legal counsel in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination. In the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination, the Company’s legal counsel will bill the Company the lesser of the actual time incurred or $0.10 million.

NOTE 7 ─ STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT

Common Stock

The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001 per share.

Of the 5,295,000 shares of common stock outstanding, an aggregate of up to 675,000 shares were subject to forfeiture, to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full or in part, so that the Sponsor will collectively own 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock after the Initial Public Offering (assuming Sponsor does not purchase any Public Shares in the Initial Public Offering).

As of October 27, 2021, as a result of the underwriters’ full exercise of the over-allotment option, no share of common stock was available for forfeiture. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were shares of 5,304,296 common stock issued and outstanding, excluding 20,700,000 shares of common stock that are subject to possible redemption at the option of the holders which accordingly are classified as temporary equity in the accompanying condensed balance sheets.

Preferred Stock

The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Company’s board of directors. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, no share of preferred stock was issued or outstanding.

Rights

Each holder of a Right will receive one-tenth (1/10) share of common stock upon consummation of a Business Combination, even if the holder of such Right redeemed all shares held by it in connection with a Business Combination. No fractional shares will be issued upon exchange of the rights. No additional consideration will be required to be paid by a holder of rights in order to receive its additional shares upon consummation of a Business Combination as the consideration related thereto has been included in the Unit purchase price paid for by investors in the Initial Public Offering. If the Company enters into a definitive agreement for a Business Combination in which the Company will not be the surviving entity, the definitive agreement will provide for the holders of rights to receive the same per share consideration the holders of the common stock will receive in the transaction on an as-converted into common stock basis and each holder of a right will be required to affirmatively covert its rights in order to receive one-tenth (1/10) share underlying each right (without paying additional consideration). The shares issuable upon exchange of the rights will be freely tradable (except to the extent held by affiliates of the Company).

NOTE 7 ─ STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT (Continued)

Rights (Continued)

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of rights will not receive any of such funds with respect to their rights, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with respect to such rights, and the rights will expire worthless. Further, there are no contractual penalties for failure to deliver securities to the holders of the rights upon consummation of a Business Combination. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the rights. Accordingly, the rights may expire worthless.

Warrants

The Public Warrants will become exercisable at any time commencing 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination. No warrants will be exercisable for cash unless the Company has an effective and current registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants and a current prospectus relating to such shares of common stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants is not effective within a specified period following the consummation of a Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company shall have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a cashless basis pursuant to the exemption provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act, provided that such exemption is available. If that exemption, or another exemption, is not available, holders will not be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

The Company may redeem the Public Warrants (excluding the Private Warrants and any warrants underlying units issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans):

in whole and not in part;
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
at any time after the warrants become exercisable;
upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder;
if, and only if, the reported last sale price of the shares of common stock equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations), for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period commencing at any time after the warrants become exercisable and ending on the third business day prior to the notice of redemption to warrant holders; and
if, and only if, there is a current registration statement in effect with respect to the shares of common stock underlying the warrants.

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,” as described in the warrant agreement. The exercise price and number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a stock dividend, or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. However, except as described below, the warrants will not be adjusted for issuance of common stock at a price below its exercise price. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the warrants. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.

NOTE 7 ─ STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT (Continued)

Warrants (Continued)

In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional common stock or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of a Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per common stock (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or its affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of a Business Combination on the date of the consummation of a Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of its common stock during the 20 trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates its Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the greater of (i) Market Value or (ii) the price at which the Company issue the additional shares of common stock or equity-linked securities.

The Private Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering.

EBC Founder Shares

In April 2021, the Company issued to EarlyBirdCapital and its designees 100,000 shares of common stock (the “EBC Founder Shares”) at $0.001 per share. The Company accounted for the EBC Founder Shares as an offering cost of the Initial Public Offering, with a corresponding credit to stockholders’ equity. The Company estimated the fair value of EBC Founder Shares to be $580 based upon the price of the Founder Shares issued to the Sponsor. In October 2021, the Company effected a dividend of 20,000 of the Company’s EBC Founder Shares, which resulted in an aggregate of 120,000 EBC Founder Shares outstanding. All share and associated amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share dividend. The holders of the EBC Founder Shares have agreed not to transfer, assign, or sell any such shares until the completion of a Business Combination. In addition, the holders have agreed (i) to waive their redemption rights with respect to such shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period.

The EBC Founder Shares have been deemed compensation by FINRA and are therefore subject to a lock-up for a period of 180 days immediately following the effective date of the registration statement related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to Rule 5110(g)(1) of FINRA’s NASD Conduct Rules. Pursuant to FINRA Rule 5110(g)(1), these securities will not be sold during the Initial Public Offering, or sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, or hypothecated, or be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put or call transaction that would result in the economic disposition of the securities by any person for a period of 180 days immediately following the effective date of the Initial Public Offering, except to any underwriter and selected dealer participating in the Initial Public Offering and their bona fide officers or partners, provided that all securities so transferred remain subject to the lockup restriction above for the remainder of the time period.

NOTE 8 ─ FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

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 the Company’s assessment of the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

At June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 respectively, assets held in the Trust Account were comprised of $54.98 million in an interest-bearing Demand Deposit Account and $212.09 million in money market funds which are invested primarily in U.S. Treasury Securities. Money market funds are a level 1 asset valued based upon quoted prices in active markets.

The following table presents information about the Company’s financial assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 by level within the fair value hierarchy:

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

References in this report (the “Quarterly Report”) to “we,” “us” or the “Company” refer to Accretion Acquisition Corp. References to our “management” or our “management team” refer to our officers and directors, and references to the “Sponsor” refer to Accretion Acquisition Sponsor, LLC. The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

Overview

We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on February 26, 2021 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar business combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our business combination using cash from the proceeds of the IPO and the sale of the private warrants, our capital stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt.

All activity through June 30, 2023 relates to our formation, the IPO, and search for a prospective business combination target.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities from inception through June 30, 2023, were organizational activities and those necessary to prepare for the IPO, described below. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after the completion of our business combination. We expect to generate non-operating income in the form of interest income or dividend income on cash held in the trust account after the IPO. We incur 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 months ended June 30, 2023, we had a net profit of $0.53 million, which consisted of dividend income of $1.09 million, franchise tax expense of $0.05 million and operating costs of $0.29 million.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, we had a net loss of $0.10 million, which consisted of dividend income of $0.30 million, franchise tax expense of $0.05 million, income tax expense of $0.02 million and operating costs of $0.33 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, we had a net profit of $1.90 million, which consisted of dividend income of $3.35 million, franchise tax expense of $0.10 million, income tax expense of $0.68 million and operating costs of $0.67 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we had a net loss of $0.64 million, which consisted of dividend income of $0.31 million, franchise tax expense of $0.10 million, income tax expense of $0.02 million and operating costs of $0.84 million.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Until the consummation of the IPO, our only source of liquidity was an initial purchase of common stock by the Sponsor and loans from the Sponsor.

On October 25, 2021, the Company consummated the IPO of 18,000,000 units, at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $180.00 million. Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, we consummated the sale of 7,300,000 private warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement to Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $7.30 million. On October 27, 2021, the underwriters exercised the over-allotment option in full and on October 28, 2021, purchased an additional 2,700,000 units, generating gross proceeds of approximately $27.00 million. In connection with the underwriters’ full exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company issued an additional 810,000 private warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement to Sponsor generating gross proceeds of $0.81 million.

Following the IPO and the private placement, a total of $209.07 million was placed in the trust account (at $10.10 per Unit). We incurred $11.94 million in transaction costs, including $4.14 million of underwriting fees, $7.25 million of deferred underwriting fees and $0.55 million of other offering costs.

27

As of June 30, 2023, we had cash of $1,653 outside of the trust account. 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, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a business combination.

In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a business combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a business combination, we may repay such loaned amounts out of the proceeds of the trust account released to us. In the event that a 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 would be used for such repayment. Up to $1.50 million of such loans may be convertible into warrants at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the private warrants.

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with ASC Topic 205-40 Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern, the Company has until the Extended Date to consummate a Business Combination. If a Business Combination is not consummated by this date and an extension not requested by the sponsor, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Although the Company intends to consummate a Business Combination on or before the Additional Charter Extension Date, it is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a Business Combination by this time. Management has determined that the liquidity condition, coupled with the mandatory liquidation, should a Business Combination not occur, and an extension is not requested by the sponsor, and potential subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Further to the approval of the Extension Amendment Proposal, the Company’s plan is to complete a Business Combination on or prior to December 25, 2023, however it is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a Business Combination or obtain an extension by this time. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after December 25, 2023.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements as of June 30, 2023. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating 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 as described below.

Registration Rights

The holders of the founders’ shares, EBC founder shares, the private warrants, and any warrants that may be issued upon conversion of working capital loans will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement. These holders will be entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights. We 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 $0.20 per unit, or $3.60 million in the aggregate payable upon the closing of the IPO and the over-allotment option. $0.35 per unit, or $6.30 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. 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.

On October 27, 2021, the underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment option. As a result, they were entitled to an additional underwriting discount of $0.54 million in cash, and a further deferred underwriting discount of $0.95 million.

28

Administrative Support Agreement

Commencing on the effective date of the IPO, we have agreed to pay the Sponsor a total of up to $10,000 per month in the aggregate for up to 18 months for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support. Upon completion of the initial business combination or the Company’s liquidation, we will cease paying these monthly fees. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, the Company accrued $0.03 million for these services, and for the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company has accrued $0.06 million. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company accrued $0.03 million for these services, and for the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company has accrued $0.06 million. These amounts are included in the operating costs on accompanying condensed statements of operations.

Advisory Agreement

Through June 30, 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with the M&A advisors (who also served as the Company’s underwriters during the Initial Public Offering) in connection with the evaluation, pursuit and conduct of one or more proposed transactions for a potential Business Combination (the “Advisory Agreement”). At balance sheet date, fees for the services performed were contingent upon the closing of a Business Combination and therefore not included as liabilities on the accompanying condensed balance sheets.

Engagement for Legal Services

The Company has a contingent fee arrangement with their legal counsel pursuant to which a flat fee of $3.00 million is payable to the Company’s legal counsel in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination. In the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination, the Company’s legal counsel will bill the Company the lesser of the actual time incurred or $100,000.

Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the “IR Act”) was signed into federal law. The IR Act provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases of stock by publicly traded U.S. domestic corporations and certain U.S. domestic subsidiaries of publicly traded foreign corporations occurring on or after January 1, 2023. The excise tax is imposed on the repurchasing corporation itself, not its shareholders from which shares are repurchased. The amount of the excise tax is generally 1% of the fair market value of the shares repurchased at the time of the repurchase. However, for purposes of calculating the excise tax, repurchasing corporations are permitted to net the fair market value of certain new stock issuances against the fair market value of stock repurchases during the same taxable year. In addition, certain other exceptions may apply to the excise tax. The U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) has been given authority to provide regulations and other guidance to carry out and prevent the abuse or avoidance of the excise tax.

29

Any redemption or other repurchase that occurs after December 31, 2022, in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise, may be subject to the excise tax. Whether and to what extent the Company would be subject to the excise tax in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise would depend on a number of factors, including (i) the fair market value of the redemptions and repurchases in connection with the Business Combination, extension or otherwise, (ii) the structure of a Business Combination, (iii) the nature and amount of any “PIPE” or other equity issuances in connection with a Business Combination (or otherwise issued not in connection with a Business Combination but issued within the same taxable year of a Business Combination) and (iv) the content of regulations and other guidance from the Treasury. In addition, because the excise tax would be payable by the Company and not by the redeeming holder, the mechanics of any required payment of the excise tax have not been determined. The foregoing could cause a reduction in the cash available on hand to complete a Business Combination and in the Company’s ability to complete a Business Combination.

On April 14, 2023, the Company’s stockholders redeemed 15,395,704 Common Stock shares for a total of $159 million (or $10.33 per share). The Company evaluated the current status and probability of completing a Business Combination and determined that a contingent liability should be calculated and recorded. As of June 30, 2023, the Company recorded $1.59 million of excise tax liability calculated as 1% of shares redeemed.

Critical Accounting Policies

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our condensed financial statements.

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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. The Company has identified the following as its critical accounting policies:

Warrants

We do not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. We evaluate all of our financial instruments, including issued stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to ASC 480 and ASC 815-15.

We account for the public warrants and private warrants collectively (“Warrants”), as either equity or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the specific terms of the Warrants and the applicable authoritative guidance in Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the Warrants meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the Warrants are indexed to our own common stocks and whether the warrant holders could potentially require “net cash settlement” in a circumstance outside of our control, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of issuance of the Warrants and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the Warrants are outstanding.

For issued or modified warrants that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, such warrants are required to be recorded as a component of additional paid-in capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified warrants that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, such warrants are required to be recorded at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of liability-classified warrants are recognized as a non-cash gain or loss on the statements of operations.

We evaluated the public warrants and private warrants in accordance with ASC 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity,” and concluded that they met the criteria for equity classification and are required to be recorded as part a component of additional paid-in capital at the time of issuance.

Common Stock Subject to Possible Redemption

We account for the common stock subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity. Common stock subject to mandatory redemption are classified as a liability instrument and are measured at fair

30

value. Conditionally redeemable common stock (including common stock that feature 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) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, common stock are classified as stockholders’ equity. The Company’s common stock features certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events.

Net Profit (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock

We comply with accounting and disclosure requirements of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standard Codification, or FASB ASC, Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” Net loss per share of common stock is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period, excluding common stock subject to forfeiture. The Company applies the two-class method in calculating earnings per share. The calculation of diluted loss per share of common stock does not consider the effect of the warrants issued in connection with the IPO since the exercise of the warrants are contingent upon the occurrence of future events and the inclusion of such warrants would be anti-dilutive.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (ASU 2016-13), which requires an entity to utilize a new impairment model known as the current expected credit loss (CECL) model to estimate its lifetime “expected credit loss” and record an allowance that, when deducted from the amortized cost basis of the financial assets and certain other instruments, including but not limited to available-for-sale debt securities. Credit losses relating to available-for-sale debt securities will be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a direct write-down to the security. ASU 2016-13 requires a cumulative effect adjustment to the balance sheet as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) and Leases (Topic 842): Effective Dates, which defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 for all entities except SEC reporting companies that are not smaller reporting companies. ASU 2016-13 will be effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2023. The accounting pronouncement was adopted effective January 1, 2023 with no impact to its financial statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Not required for smaller reporting companies.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are 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 company reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (together, the “Certifying Officers”), to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our Certifying Officers carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2023. Based upon their evaluation, our Certifying Officers concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective, due solely to the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting related to the Company’s accounting for complex financial instruments and accrued expenses. As a result, we performed additional analysis as deemed necessary to ensure that our financial statements were prepared in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this Report present fairly in all material respects our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the period presented.

In light of this material weakness, we have enhanced our processes to identify and appropriately apply applicable accounting requirements to better evaluate and understand the nuances of the complex accounting standards that apply to our financial statements including making greater use of third-party professionals with whom we consult regarding complex accounting applications. The elements of our remediation plan can only be accomplished over time, and we can offer no assurance that these initiatives will ultimately have the intended effects. We believe our efforts will enhance our controls relating to accounting for complex financial transactions, but

31

we can offer no assurance that our controls will not require additional review and modification in the future as industry accounting practice may evolve over time.

We do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all instances of fraud. Disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Further, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that we have detected all our control deficiencies and instances of fraud, if any. The design of disclosure controls and procedures also is based partly on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2023 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
