In exchange therefor, the Company shall pay the Sponsor the sum of $3,000 per month on the Quoting Date and continuing monthly thereafter until the Termination Date.
The Company shall also pay a management fee to the Sponsor which shall be payable as follows: (i) approximately $35,000 on the closing date of the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) and (ii) a monthly fee of approximately $17,000 commencing on the Quoting Date and terminating on the Termination Date for certain management services provided to the Company.  The Sponsor shall pay a portion of the Management Fee to Byron I. Sproule, a member of the Sponsor and the chief financial officer, and executive vice president of the Company.
The Sponsor hereby irrevocably waives any and all right, title, interest, causes of action and claims of any kind (each, a “Claim”) in or to, and any and all right to seek payment of any amounts due to it out of, the trust account established for the benefit of the public shareholders of the Company and into which substantially all of the proceeds of the Company’s IPO will be deposited (the “Trust Account”), and hereby irrevocably waives any Claim it may have in the future as a result of, or arising out of, this agreement, which Claim would reduce, encumber or otherwise adversely affect the Trust Account or any monies or other assets in the Trust Account, and further agrees not to seek recourse, reimbursement, payment or satisfaction of any Claim against the Trust Account or any monies or other assets in the Trust Account for any reason whatsoever.
