Segments of revenue
In the latest quarter, LIBY reported a decrease in revenue across all segments.

Additionally, franchise tax expenses were $(50,000), down from $(40,000) in the previous year.
Despite the decrease in revenue, LIBY managed to generate a realized gain of $536,445 from marketable securities held in the trust account.

It is worth mentioning that LIBY's weighted average shares outstanding of Class A common stock remained consistent at 9,734,883 in both the current and previous year's quarter. This indicates stability in the company's capital structure.
