Quarterly Report


The following discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the interim financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q ("Report"). Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 10-Q including, without limitation, statements under "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" regarding our financial position, business strategy and the plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward looking statements. When used in this Form 10-Q, words such as "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend" and similar expressions, as they relate to us or our management, identify forward looking statements. Such forward looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, our management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in our filings with the SEC. All subsequent written or oral forward looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are qualified in their entirety by this paragraph.


We are a newly organized blank check company formed on July 22, 2011 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. We consummated our initial public offering on December 19, 2012. We seek to capitalize on the global network and investing and operating experience of our management team to identify, acquire and operate one or more businesses focused on the provision and/or outsourcing of government services operating within or outside of North America, although we may pursue acquisition opportunities in other business sectors or geographic regions. We believe that the acquisition and operation of an established business focused on the provision and/or outsourcing of government services will provide a foundation from which to build, through acquisition or organic growth, a diversified business platform. We believe our management team has the skills and experience to identify, evaluate and consummate a business combination and is positioned to assist businesses we acquire to satisfy the increased demand for the provision and/or outsourcing of government services because of the experience of our management team in the government sector. However, our management team's global network and investing and operating experience is not a guarantee of a successful initial business combination.

Results of Operations

For the period from July 22, 2011 (inception) through June 30, 2013 we had a net gain of $1,434,930 including a net gain of $1,811,250 for the period from January 1, 2013 to June 30, 2013, consisting primarily of interest income and a change in the fair value of the warrant liability offset by general and administrative expenses.

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. All activity through June 30, 2013 relates to our formation, our private placements and offering, the identification and evaluation of prospective candidates for an initial business combination, and general corporate matters. Since the completion of our offering, we have not generated any operating revenues and will not until after completion of our initial business combination, at the earliest. We may generate small amounts of non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents, but such income is not expected to be significant in view of the current low yields on Treasury securities. We expect to incur increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses. As of June 30, 2013, approximately $75 million was held in the trust account and we had cash outside of trust of approximately $615,000 and approximately $45,000 in accounts payable and accrued expenses. All interest income on the balance of the trust accounts may be available to us to fund out working capital requirements. Through June 30, 2013, the Company had not withdrawn any funds from interest earned on the trust proceeds. Other than the deferred underwriting fees, no amounts are payable to the underwriters of our initial public offering in the event of a business combination. We believe that we have sufficient funds available to complete our efforts to effect an initial business combination with an operating business by September 13, 2014.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

On December 19, 2012, we consummated our offering of 7,500,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. Simultaneously with the consummation of our offering, we consummated the private sale of 375,000 units to our sponsor, Joseph Wright and Cowen Overseas for $3.75 million. We received net proceeds from our offering and the sale of the placement units of approximately $76,120,000 net of the non-deferred portion of the underwriting commissions of $2,062,050 and offering costs of approximately $567,550. Upon the closing of the offering and the private placement, $75,000,000 was placed into a trust account while the remaining funds were placed in an account outside the trust for working capital purposes. As of June 30, 2013, investment securities in our trust account consisted of $75,029,628 (including $29,628 of interest earned) in U.S. government Treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less. Out of the proceeds of our offering which remained available outside of the trust account, we obtained officers and directors insurance covering a 21 month period from December 7, 2012 through June 7, 2014 for a cost of $260,000, with a prepaid balance at June 30, 2013 of $165,866.

As of June 30, 2013, we had a cash and cash equivalent balance of $615,106, held outside of our trust account, which is available for use by us to cover the costs associated with identifying a target business and negotiating a business combination and other general corporate uses.

For the period from July 22, 2011 (date of inception) to June 30, 2013, we used cash of $517,135 in operating activities, which was largely attributable to a loss from operations of approximately $406,000 (exclusive of a non-cash gain from the change in fair value of the warrant liability). During the first six months of 2013, we used cash of $504,551 in operating activities, which was largely attributable to a loss from operations of approximately $345,000 (exclusive of a non-cash gain from the change in fair value of the warrant liability).

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the trust account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the trust account (less amounts released to us for working capital purposes or to pay taxes and deferred underwriting commissions) to consummate our initial business combination. We may use all interest earned on the trust account for purposes of working capital, to pay taxes and dissolution expenses. We estimate our annual franchise tax obligations, based on the number of shares of our common stock authorized and outstanding to be approximately $80,000. Our annual income tax obligations will depend on the amount of interest and other income earned on the amounts held in the trust account. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to consummate our initial business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the trust account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

We are an emerging growth company as defined in the JOBS Act. As an emerging growth company, we have elected, pursuant to Section 107(b) of the JOBS Act, to take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Securities Act
Section 7(a)(2)(B) for complying with new or revised accounting standards. We will therefore delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies until those standards apply to private companies. We may take advantage of this extended transition period provided in Securities Act Section 7(a)(2)(B) until the first to occur of the date we (i) are no longer an "emerging growth company" or (ii) affirmatively and irrevocably opt out of the extended transition period provided in Securities Act Section 7(a)(2)(B). As such, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates.

Upon the issuance of a new or revised accounting standard that applies to our financial statements and has a different effective date for public and private companies, we will disclose the date on which adoption is required for non-emerging growth companies and the date on which we will adopt the recently-issued accounting standard.

We do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimates of the costs of undertaking in-depth due diligence and negotiating an initial business combination is less than the actual amount necessary to do so, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our initial business combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to consummate our initial business combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our public shares upon consummation of our initial business combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with and contemporaneous with such business combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only consummate such financing simultaneously with the consummation of our initial business combination. In the current economic environment, it has become especially difficult to obtain acquisition financing.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


Contractual obligations

We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities other than a monthly fee of $10,000 payable to the Chart Group L.P., an affiliate of our sponsor, for office space, secretarial and administrative services.

We began incurring these fees on December 14, 2012 (the date the securities of the Company were first listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market) and will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the consummation of an initial business combination or
(ii) the liquidation of the Company.

Significant Accounting Policies

We have identified the following as our significant accounting policies.

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

Net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. During the period from inception through the public offering and private placement, the Company did not have any dilutive securities and other contracts that could, potentially, be exercised or converted into common shares and then share in the earnings of the Company. As a result, diluted income (loss) per common share is the same as basic income
(loss) per share for periods presented.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements 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 and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

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

Redeemable Common Stock

All of the 7,500,000 common shares sold as part of the units in the public offering contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of common shares under the Company's liquidation or tender offer/stockholder approval provisions. In accordance with ASC Topic 480 "Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity", 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 Topic 480. Although the Company does not specify a maximum redemption threshold, its charter provides that in no event will they redeem its public shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets (stockholders' equity) to be less than $5,000,001.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and will adjust the carrying value of the security to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable common stock shall be affected by charges against the par value of common stock and retained earnings, or in the absence of retained earnings, by charges against additional paid-in capital in accordance with ASC Topic 480-10-S99. Accordingly, at June 30, 2013, 6,432,988 public shares are classified outside of permanent equity at its redemption value. The redemption value is equal to the pro rata share of the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest but less franchise and income taxes payable (approximately $10.00 at June 30, 2013).

Income Tax

Deferred income taxes are provided for the differences between the bases of assets and liabilities for financial reporting and income tax purposes. A valuation allowance is established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. At June 30, 2013, the Company has a deferred tax asset of approximately $502,000, related to net operating loss carry forwards which begin to expire in 2031. Accordingly, Management has determined that a full valuation allowance of the deferred tax asset is appropriate at this time .

The Company is required to determine whether its tax positions are more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by the applicable taxing authority, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefit recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that has a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant taxing authority. De-recognition of a tax benefit previously recognized results in the Company recording a tax liability that reduces ending retained earnings. Based on its analysis, the Company has determined that it has not incurred any liability for unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2013. The Company's conclusions may be subject to review and adjustment at a later date based on factors including, but not limited to, on-going analyses of and changes to tax laws, regulations and interpretations thereof.

The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and other expenses, respectively. No interest expense or penalties have been recognized as of June 30, 2013. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.
