The undersigned wishes to purchase Class A Ordinary Shares in such private placement on the terms and conditions set forth herein. Accordingly, the undersigned and GTY hereby agree as follows:

On the terms and subject to the conditions in this Subscription Agreement, the undersigned hereby irrevocably subscribes for and agrees to purchase from GTY, and GTY agrees to issue and sell to the undersigned, 1,500,000 Class A Ordinary Shares (the “Subscribed Shares”), for a purchase price of $10.00 per share (implying a 2.5% discount from the expected per share trust value at closing), on the terms and conditions set forth herein.
2. Closing. The closing of the sale of the Shares contemplated hereby (the “Closing”) shall occur on the date of, and immediately prior to, the consummation of the Business Combination. Upon (i) satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3 below and (ii) not less than five (5) business days’ written notice from (or on behalf of) GTY to the undersigned (the “Closing Notice”) that GTY reasonably expects all conditions to the closing of the Business Combination to be satisfied on a date that is not less than five (5) business days from the date of the Closing Notice, the undersigned shall deliver to GTY on or prior to 8:00 a.m. (Eastern time) (or, if the undersigned advises GTY that under law, rule or regulation applicable to the undersigned it must have custody of the Shares before funding, as soon as practicable after GTY or its transfer agent provides the undersigned with written notice evidencing the issuance to the undersigned of the Shares) on the closing date specified in the Closing Notice, or such later date as GTY specifies in a subsequent notice to the undersigned (the “Closing Date”), the subscription amount for the Shares subscribed by wire transfer of United States dollars in immediately available funds to the account specified by GTY in the Closing Notice against delivery to the undersigned of (i) the Shares in book entry form in the name of the undersigned (or its nominee in accordance with its delivery instructions) as set forth in the following sentence and (ii) written notice from (or on behalf of) GTY to the undersigned evidencing the issuance to the undersigned of the Shares on and as of the Closing Date. GTY shall deliver (or cause the delivery of) the Shares in book entry form to the undersigned or to a custodian designated by the undersigned, as applicable.

7. Registration Rights. GTY shall use commercially reasonable efforts to include the Shares in the S-4. In the event that the Shares are not included in the S-4, GTY agrees that, within seven (7) calendar days after the consummation of the Business Combination, GTY will file with the SEC (at GTY’s sole cost and expense) a registration statement registering the resale of the Shares issued to the undersigned (the “Registration Statement”), and GTY shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof. GTY agrees that it will cause such registration statement or another shelf registration statement to remain effective until the earlier of (i) two years from the issuance of the Shares, or (ii) on the first date on which the undersigned can sell all of the Shares (or shares received in exchange therefor) under Rule 144 of the Securities Act within 90 days without limitation as to the amount of such securities that may be sold. GTY may delay filing or suspend the use of any such registration statement if GTY delivers to the holders of Shares a certificate signed by an officer of GTY certifying that, in the good faith judgment of the board of directors of GTY, such registration and the offering pursuant thereto would reasonably be expected to materially adversely affect or materially interfere with any bona fide material financing or transaction of GTY or would require disclosure of information that has not been disclosed to the public, the premature disclosure of which would materially adversely affect GTY. Such certificate shall contain a statement of the reasons for such postponement and an approximation of the anticipated delay. The holders receiving such certificate shall keep the information contained in such certificate confidential. GTY’s obligations to include the Shares (or shares issued in exchange therefor) in the Registration Statement are contingent upon the undersigned furnishing in writing to GTY such information regarding the undersigned, the securities of GTY held by the undersigned and the intended method of disposition of the Shares as shall be reasonably requested by GTY to effect the registration of the Shares, and shall execute such documents in connection with such registration as GTY may reasonably request that are customary of a selling stockholder in similar situations.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, GTY may identify the undersigned (i) as required by law, (ii) in information and documents submitted to its stockholders seeking required consents or waivers to transactions or other actions that require such consent or waiver, and (iii) other non-public communications with third parties where disclosure of the capitalization of GTY is required.

(i) Subject to Section 10(o)(ii), GTY hereby acknowledges and agrees that one individual designated by undersigned who shall satisfy the criteria for “independent director” under the rules of the principal stock exchange on which GTY’s or its affiliate’s stock is listed (the “Listed Company” and such director, the “Designee”), shall, in accordance with the Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws of the Listed Company, be nominated by the Listed Company at each annual meeting of the stockholders of the Listed Company (the “Stockholders”) (or any other meeting of Stockholders for election of directors), for election to the Board, who shall be included in the slate of directors recommended by the Board to the Stockholders for election.

The Initial Share Number shall be appropriately adjusted to take into account any adjustment to any reorganization, stock reclassification, recapitalization or split, exchange of shares or similar transaction.
(iii) Subject to the other provisions of this Section 10(o), if, as a result of the death, retirement, resignation or removal for cause of the Designee, there shall exist or occur any vacancy on the Board, the undersigned shall have the power to designate an individual to fill such vacancy.
(iv) Each Designee shall, prior to serving on the Board, shall execute and deliver to GTY customary director qualification statements, a customary confidentiality agreement and any other documents that GTY requires other members of the Board to execute and deliver.
