The Company previously purchased 3,450,000 shares (of which 450,000 could be subject to forfeiture if the underwriters’ over-allotment is not exercised in full) of BRAC’s common stock for $25,000.

The units are listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market (“NASDAQ”) and trade under the symbol “BRACU.” Each unit consists of one share of BRAC’s common stock, one warrant to purchase one share of BRAC’s common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, and one right to receive one-tenth of one share of BRAC’s common stock only upon the consummation of an initial business combination by BRAC. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the common stock, warrants and rights are expected to be listed on NASDAQ under the symbols “BRAC,” “BRACW,” and “BRACR,” respectively.
