On February 28, 2024, the Company filed with the Commission certain additional proxy statement solicitating materials to supplement that G-Star Management Corporation, the sponsor of the Company (the “Sponsor”), has signed and delivered a sponsor undertaking letter (the “Sponsor Undertaking Letter”) dated February 28, 2024 to the Company, pursuant to which, the Sponsor (or any of its affiliates or designees) irrevocably agrees to deposit into the Trust Account an amount of $20,000 as an additional extension fee (the “Additional Extension Fee”, together with the Proposed Reduced Extension Fee, the “Total Revised Extension Fee”) to add to the Proposed Reduced Extension Fee in the Extension Fee Reduction Proposal, for each extension commencing from the first extension payment following the approval of the Extension Fee Reduction Proposal. The Additional Extension Fee will be subject to the same terms and conditions applicable to the Proposed Reduced Extension Fee. This Sponsor Undertaking Letter shall automatically terminate on the earlier of (i) the completion of the initial business combination by the Company or (ii) the liquidation of the Company; provided, however, that this Sponsor Undertaking Letter shall earlier terminate automatically in the event that the original Proposal No. 1 is defeated or not otherwise duly approved.

On March 6, 2024, the board of directors of the Company proposed to amend the monthly fee payable by the Sponsor and/or its designee into the trust account to extend the date by which the Company must consummate its initial business combination as proposed in the original Proposal 1 to the Meeting, from an amount equal to the lesser of (i) $50,000 for all outstanding Public Shares and (ii) $0.033 for each outstanding Public Share as proposed in the original filing, to an amount equal to the lesser of (i) $75,000 and (ii) $0.033 for each outstanding Public Share. The Amended Monthly Extension Fee, if and to the extent approved at the Meeting, will become operative for the monthly extension fee beginning on the 4th of the first month following the approval of the Amended Monthly Extension Fee at the Meeting and the 4th of each succeeding month until February 4, 2025. In light of the Amended Monthly Extension Fee, on March 6, 2024, the Sponsor and the Company agree to terminate the Sponsor Undertaking Letter with immediate effect.

In light of the Amended Monthly Extension Fee, the Company has filed the Supplement as dated March 6, 2024 with the Commission to, among others, amend Proposal No. 1 (the “Amended Proposal No. 1”) as described more fully herein above and amend the related proxy card (the “Amended Proxy Card”). Other than as indicated herein, no other changes have been made to the Proxy Statement or the proxy card as originally filed and mailed. Any references to the “Proxy Statement” are to the Proxy Statement as amended and supplemented by the Supplement and all the filed additional proxy statement supplements as indicated above.

The Supplement is not complete without, and may not be utilized except in connection with, the Proxy Statement, including any supplements and amendments thereto. Shareholders of the Company should read carefully and in their entirety the Supplement and the Proxy Statement and all accompanying annexes and exhibits, in particular, the matters discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” on page 10 of the Proxy Statement.

The Amended Proxy Card differs from the proxy card previously made available to shareholders of the Company with the Proxy Statement, in that the enclosed Amended Proxy Card includes the Amended Proposal No. 1 as described above. If shareholders return, or have already returned, an original proxy card, shareholders’ proxies are no longer valid because the proposals set forth on the original proxy card have been revised. PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY ORIGINAL PROXY CARDS SUBMITTED ARE INVALID, SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO SUBMIT THE AMENDED PROXY CARD TO INDICATE SHAREHOLDERS’ VOTES ON THE REVISED PROPOSAL. The Company encourages shareholders to resubmit their votes on the revised proposals by submitting the Amended Proxy Card enclosed with this Amendment Proposal No. 1 or by voting online or by email by following the procedures on the Amended Proxy Card.

All of the Company’s shareholders of record as of the close of business on January 17, 2024, are entitled to vote at the Meeting. The Company has retained Advantage Proxy, Inc. (“Advantage Proxy”) to assist us in soliciting proxies.
