For the Staff’s convenience, we have repeated below the Staff’s comments in bold, and have followed each comment with the Company’s response.

Summary

Our Acquisition Process, page 12

 

1.Please revise to clarify the terms of the agreement by your officers and directors with respect to participation in other blank check companies. For example, on page 12 you disclose that your existing officers and directors have agreed (and future officers and directors will be required to agree) not to participate in the formation of, or become an officer or director of, any blank check company until you have entered into a definitive agreement regarding your initial business combination, failed to complete your initial business combination within 24 months from the completion of this offering or liquidated prior to the end of such 24 month period. However, on page 14 you disclose that your officers and directors have agreed not to participate in the formation of, or become an officer or director of, any other special purpose acquisition company with a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act without your prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld.
