Nocturne Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: MBTC), a Cayman Islands-based blank-check company, has reported a surge in its total assets with $21.65 million as of March 31, 2023, according to the firm’s recent SEC Form 10-Q filing. Established in 2020, the company aims to merge, acquire, or reorganize assets and businesses for more profitable operations.

However, the completion of the merger is uncertain and dependent on various conditions such as achieving a total combined company value of at least 80% of the net assets in the Trust Account. The company must also comply with the Investment Company Act and present shareholders with the opportunity to redeem shares upon the completion of the merger.

According to the company’s financial information, operating costs for the three months ending on March 31, 2023, amounted to $585,321, while net losses reached $308,711 during the same period.
