Quarterly Report


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "should," "could," "would," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "continue," or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filings. References to "we", "us", "our" or the "Company" are to Trio Merger Corp., except where the context requires otherwise. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our condensed financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this report.

Overview

We are a blank check company in the development stage, formed on February 2, 2011 to serve as a vehicle to effect a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities. We are actively searching for a target business.

We presently have no revenue, have had losses since inception from incurring formation costs and have no other operations other than the active solicitation of a target business with which to complete a business combination. We have relied upon the sale of our securities and loans from our officers and directors to fund our operations.

The registration statement for our initial public offering was declared effective on June 20, 2011. On June 21, 2011, we filed a new registration statement to increase the size of the offering by 20% pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. We consummated the offering on June 24, 2011 and received proceeds net of transaction costs of $57,438,823 and $3,550,000 from the sale of warrants to our initial stockholders and the underwriters in the offering. On June 24, 2011, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option and on June 27, 2011, we received net proceeds of $8,685,000. Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the offering and insider warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be generally applied toward consummating a business combination with one or more businesses or entities.

Results of Operations

Our entire activity since inception up to the closing of our initial public offering on June 24, 2011 was in preparation for that event. Since the offering, our activity has been limited to the evaluation of business combination candidates, and we will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial business combination. We expect to generate small amounts of non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents. Interest income is not expected to be significant in view of current low interest rates on risk-free investments (treasury securities).

We incurred a net loss of $106,868 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. This net loss was largely composed of marketing expenses of approximately $35,000, monthly administrative fees to Crescendo Advisors II, LLC (which is owned by our Chairman and CEO, Eric Rosenfeld) of $30,000, accounting expenses of $15,000 and legal expenses of approximately $11,000. We incurred a net loss of $118,128 for the period from February 2, 2011 (inception) to September 30, 2011. This net loss was largely composed of marketing expenses of approximately $35,000, monthly administrative fees of $32,000, accounting expenses of $15,000 and legal expenses of approximately $11,000.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2011, we had $339,115 in our operating bank account. We had $62,221,902 in restricted cash and equivalents held in trust to be used for a Business Combination or to repurchase or convert our common shares through September 30, 2011. We have used $6,988,510 of trust funds to repurchase 725,845 common shares in accordance with our 10b5-1 plan. As a result of these repurchases the full pro rata redemption price has increased from $10.03 per share to approximately $10.08 per share. We intend to use the remainder of the proceeds not held in the trust account plus the interest earned on the funds held in the trust account that may be released to us to fund our working capital requirements. As of September 30, 2011, U.S Treasury Bills with one month, three month, and six month maturities were yielding approximately 0.02%, 0.02%, and 0.06%, respectively. While we may invest in other securities, we believe such rates are representative of those we may receive on the balance of the trust account.


Until consummation of our initial business combination, we will be using the funds not held in the trust account for identifying and evaluating prospective acquisition candidates, performing business due diligence on prospective target businesses, traveling to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses, reviewing corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, selecting the target business to acquire and structuring, negotiating and consummating the business combination. Our estimates are based upon the belief that in-depth due diligence will be undertaken only after we have negotiated and signed a letter of intent or other preliminary agreement that addresses the terms of a business combination. Our actual costs may be higher or lower than these estimates. We anticipate that we will incur approximately:

? $300,000 of expenses for the search for target businesses and for the legal, accounting and other third-party expenses attendant to the due diligence investigations, structuring and negotiating of a business combination;

? $225,000 of expenses for the due diligence and investigation of a target business by our officers, directors and initial shareholders;

? $110,000 of expenses in legal and accounting fees relating to our SEC reporting obligations;

? $100,000 for general working capital that will be used for miscellaneous expenses, liquidation obligations and reserves, including director and officer liability insurance premiums; and

? $240,000 for office space, administrative services and secretarial support.

We anticipate that in order to fund our working capital requirements, we will need to use all of the remaining funds not held in trust and the interest earned on the funds held in the trust account. We may need to enter into contingent fee arrangements with our vendors or raise additional capital through loans or additional investments from our initial shareholders, officers, directors, or third parties. None of the initial shareholders, officers or directors is under any obligation to advance funds to, or invest in, us. Accordingly, we may not be able to obtain additional financing. If we are unable to raise additional capital, we may be required to take additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not necessarily be limited to, curtailing operations, suspending the pursuit of our business plan, and controlling overhead expenses. We cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to us on commercially acceptable terms, if at all.

After the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option, the net proceeds from our initial public offering, after deducting offering expenses of approximately $461,000 and underwriting discounts of $2,415,000, were approximately $66,124,000. Of this amount, $65,660,000 and the $3,550,000 we received from the sale of the insider warrants, was placed in the trust account. The remaining net proceeds not in trust are being used for working capital purposes. We intend to use the net proceeds of the warrant offering and our initial public offering, representing our funds held in the trust account, to acquire a target business and to pay our expenses relating thereto, including $2,415,000 payable to EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. ("EBC") upon consummation of an initial business combination for acting as our non-exclusive investment banker for structuring and negotiating our business combination. To the extent that our capital stock is used in whole or in part as consideration to effect a business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account as well as any other net proceeds not expended will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business. Such working capital funds could be used in a variety of ways including continuing or expanding the target business' operations, for strategic acquisitions and for marketing, research and development of existing or new products. Such funds could also be used to repay any operating expenses or finders' fees, which we had incurred prior to the completion of our business combination if the funds available to us outside of the trust account were insufficient to cover such expenses.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2011.
