NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Austerlitz Acquisition Corporation I (the “Company”) was incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company on December 21, 2020. The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”).
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity through March 31, 2022, related to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering and efforts to identify and complete a business combination, which is described below.
On March 2, 2021, the Company consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO” or “Initial Public Offering”) of 69,000,000 units (the “Units”), including 9,000,000 Units sold pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional Units to cover over-allotments. The Units, each consisting of one Class A ordinary share (the “Public Shares”) and
one-fourth
of a redeemable warrant (each whole warrant a “Public Warrant”), were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $690,000,000, which is described in Note 3.
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed a private sale of an aggregate 10,533,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants” and together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant (the “Private Placement”) to Austerlitz Acquisition Sponsor, LP I, (the “Sponsor”) generating aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $15,800,000, which is described in Note 4.
Offering costs consist of legal, accounting and other costs incurred through the balance sheet date that are directly related to the IPO and were primarily charged against the carrying value of the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption upon the completion of the IPO in March 2021. Offering costs of $1,605,246 were allocated to warrant liabilities and expensed as incurred.
Following the closing of the IPO and Private Placement on March 2, 2021, an amount of $690,000,000 ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds were placed in a U.S.-based trust account at JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, acting as trustee (“Trust Account”). Except with respect to interest earned, if any, the proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placements held in the trust account will not be released until the earliest of (a) the completion of a Business Combination, (b) the redemption of any public shares properly tendered in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (i) to modify the substance or timing of its obligation to redeem 100% of its public shares if the Company does not complete its initial Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO or (ii) with respect to any other provisions relating to shareholders’ rights or
pre-initial
Business Combination activity, and (c) the redemption of all of the Public Shares (as defined in Note 4) if it is unable to complete its Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO, subject to applicable law.
The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of its Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company’s initial Business Combination must be with one or more operating businesses or assets that together have an aggregate fair market value equal to at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on the interest earned on the Trust Account) at the time the Company signs a definitive agreement in connection with an initial business combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise is not required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act.
The Company will provide its shareholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a general meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company. The shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount held in the Trust

Account
(initially $10.00 per share), calculated as of two business days prior to the completion of a Business Combination, including any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations. There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s Warrants. The Class A ordinary shares are recorded at redemption value and classified as temporary equity, in accordance with ASC 480.
If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, it receives an ordinary resolution under Cayman Islands law approving a Business Combination, which requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shareholders who vote at a general meeting of the Company. If a shareholder vote is not required under applicable law or stock exchange listing requirements and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (“Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, shareholder approval of the transaction is required by applicable law, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or legal reasons, the Company will offer to redeem shares in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules and not pursuant to the tender offer rules. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor has agreed to vote its Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5), Alignment Shares (as defined in Note 5) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the IPO in favor of approving a Business Combination and not to convert any shares in connection with a shareholder vote to approve a Business Combination. Additionally, each public shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company seeks shareholder approval of a Business Combination and it does not conduct redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that a public shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), is restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% of the Public Shares without the Company’s prior written consent.
The Sponsor has agreed (a) to waive its redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5), Alignment Shares (as defined in Note 5) and any Public Shares held by it in connection with the completion of a Business Combination and (b) not to propose an amendment to the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (i) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below) or (ii) with respect to any other provision relating to shareholder’s rights or
pre-initial
Business Combination activity, unless the Company provides the public shareholders with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares in conjunction with any such amendment and (iii) to waive its rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to the Founder Shares and Alignment Shares if the Company fails to consummate a Business Combination.
The Company has until
March 2, 2023,
24 months from the closing of the IPO (the “Combination Period”)
,
to consummate a Business Combination. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but no more than ten business days thereafter, redeem 100% of the outstanding Public Shares, at a
per-share
price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned, if such funds are held in an interest-bearing account (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining shareholders and the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), liquidate and dissolve, subject in each case to its obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law.

AUSTERLITZ ACQUISITION CORPORATION I
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The
Sponsor has agreed to waive its liquidation rights with respect to the Founder Shares and Alignment Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the Sponsor acquires Public Shares in or after the IPO, such Public Shares will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the assets remaining available for distribution will be less than the IPO price per Unit ($10.00).
In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed that it will be liable to the Company, if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or by a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below (1) $10.00 per Public Share or (2) such lesser amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account due to reductions in the value of trust assets, in each case net of the amount of interest which may be withdrawn to pay taxes. This liability will not apply with respect to any claims by a third party who executed a waiver of any and all rights to seek access to the Trust Account nor will it apply to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the IPO against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Moreover, in the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have all vendors, service providers (other than the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), prospective target businesses or other entities with which the Company does business, execute agreements with the Company waiving any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to monies held in the Trust Account.
Liquidity and Going Concern Consideration
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had $1,800,556 and $3,968,177 in cash, respectively, and net working capital of $1,610,548 and $1,806,414, respectively.
The Company’s liquidity needs through March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, were satisfied through a contribution of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover certain expenses in exchange for the issuance of the Founder and Alignment Shares, loans from the Sponsor, the termination fee received pursuant to the Mutual Termination Agreement and the proceeds from the consummation of the IPO and Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, provide the Company Working Capital Loans (defined below, see Note 5). As of March 31, 2022, there were no amounts outstanding under the Working Capital Loans.
In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standard Board’s Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”)
2014-15,
“Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern,” the Company has until March 2, 2023 to consummate a business combination. It is uncertain that the Company will be able to consummate a business combination by this time. If a business combination is not consummated by this date, there will be a mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution of the Company. Management has determined mandatory liquidation, should a business combination not occur, and potential subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management intends to complete the Business Combination prior to the liquidation date. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after March 2, 2023.
Risks and Uncertainties
Management continues to evaluate the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position, results of its operations and the closing of the Business Combination, the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the balances and results for the periods presented.
The interim results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022.
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Emerging Growth Company
The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statement, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.
Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to
non-emerging
growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period.

AUSTERLITZ ACQUISITION CORPORATION I
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Making
estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due t
o one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates. One of the more significant accounting estimates include
d in these financial statements is the determination of the fair value of the warrant liabilities. Such estimates may be subject to change as more current information becomes available; and,
accordingly,
the actual results could differ
significantly
from those estimates.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.
Offering costs
Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, and other expenses incurred through the Initial Public Offering that were directly related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs were allocated to the separable financial instruments issued in the Initial Public Offering based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received. Offering costs associated with warrant liabilities were expensed as incurred in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. Offering costs associated with the Class A ordinary shares issued were charged against the carrying value of the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering.
Warrant Liabilities
The Company accounts for the Warrants as either an equity-classified or liability-classified instrument based on an assessment of the specific terms of the Warrants and the applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480 and ASC 815. The assessment considers whether the Warrants are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, or meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the Warrants are indexed to the Company’s own ordinary shares and whether the warrant holders could potentially require “net cash settlement” in a circumstance outside of the Company’s control, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of issuance of the Warrants and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the Warrants are outstanding. For issued or modified instruments such as warrants and forward purchases of equity that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, such instruments are required to be recorded as a component of additional
paid-in
capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified instruments that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, such instruments are required to be recorded as liabilities at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of liability-classified instruments are recognized as a
non-cash
gain or loss on the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
The Company accounts for the Warrants in accordance with ASC
815-40
under which the Warrants do not meet the criteria for equity classification and must be recorded as assets or liabilities. The Warrant liabilities are included in Warrant liability on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. See Note 8 for further discussion of the pertinent terms of the Warrants and Note 9 for further discussion of the methodology used to determine the fair value of the Company’s liabilities for the Warrants.
Cash Held in Trust Account
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the assets held in the Trust Account were held in cash.
Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company accounts for its Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC 480. Class A Ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption are classified as a liability and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable ordinary shares (including ordinary shares that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity.

ordinary
shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. The Company’s Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 69,000,000 shares of Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented at the current redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ deficit section of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.
As of March 31, 2022 and as of December 31, 2021, Class A ordinary shares reflected on the condensed consolidated balance sheets are reconciled in the following table:

Concentration of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist of a cash account at a financial institution which, at times may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation coverage limit of $250,000. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.
Financial Instruments
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for sale of an asset or paid for transfer of a liability, in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value.
The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:
 
   
Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
 
   
Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
 
   
Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.
In some circumstances, the inputs used to measure fair value might be categorized within different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In those instances, the fair value measurement is categorized in its entirety in the fair value hierarchy based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the carrying values of cash, accrued expenses, deferred offering costs and due to related party approximate their fair values due to the short-term nature of the instruments. See Note 9 for further discussion of the fair value of the warrant liabilities.

and losses are shared pro rata between the three classes of shares. This presentation assumes a business combination as the most likely outcome. Net income (loss) per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income or loss by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding for the year. Net income (loss) is allocated to the Company’s Class A, B and C ordinary shares based on the relative shares outstanding for each class of shares compared to the Company’s total shares outstanding. The Company has not considered the effect of the Public Warrants or the Private Placement Warrants in the calculation of diluted income (loss) per share, since the exercise of the warrants are contingent upon the occurrence of future events.
The Company’s basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share are calculated as follows:

Income Taxes
The Company complies with the accounting and reporting requirements of ASC Topic 740,
Income Taxes
, which prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be
more-likely-than-not
to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company is considered an exempted Cayman Islands Company and is presently not subject to income taxes or income tax filing requirements in the Cayman Islands or the United States. As such, the Company’s tax provision was zero for the periods presented. The Company’s management does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will materially change over the next twelve months.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2020, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update
No. 2020-06,
Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options
, which among other things adds certain specific requirements to achieve equity classification and/or qualify for the derivative scope exception for contracts indexed to an entity’s own equity, which is expected to result in more freestanding instruments and embedded features to qualify for equity accounting treatment. The new standard is effective for companies that are SEC filers (except for Smaller Reporting Companies) for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021 and interim periods within that year, and two years later for other companies. Companies can early adopt the standard at the start of a fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2020. The standard can either be adopted on a modified retrospective or a full retrospective basis. The Company has evaluated the newly issued standard and does not believe it will materially impact the Company.
Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING
Pursuant to the IPO, the Company sold 69,000,000 Units at a purchase price of $ 10.00 per Unit, including 9,000,000 Units sold pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional Units to cover over-allotments. Each Unit consists of one Public Share and
one-quarter
of one Public Warrant.
Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $ 11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 8).
NOTE 4. PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the Private Placement to the Sponsor generating aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $ 15,800,000. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one Class A ordinary share at a price of $ 11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 8). The proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the IPO held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants held in the Trust Account will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless.
NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Founder Shares and Alignment Shares
On January 4, 2021, the Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 in exchange for the issuance of 12,321,429 shares of Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”) and 12,321,429 shares of Class C ordinary shares (the “Alignment Shares”). On February 25, 2021, the Sponsor received a share dividend of 2,464,286 Founder Shares and 2,464,286 Alignment Shares, resulting in there being an aggregate of 14,785,715 Founder Shares and 14,785,715 Alignment Shares outstanding. All share and per share amounts have been retroactively restated.

day period commencing at least 150 days after the completion of a Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, amalgamation, stock exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property; and (2) Alignment Shares and any Class A ordinary shares issued upon conversion thereof until the earlier of: (A) their conversion into Class A ordinary shares; and (B) subsequent to a Business Combination, the date on which the Company completes a merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in both a change in control and all of the Company’s public shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.
Promissory Note – Related Parties
On January 5, 2021, the Company issued a promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) to the Sponsor and an affiliate of the Sponsor, pursuant to which the Company could borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $800,000. The Promissory Note was
non-interest
bearing and payable on the earlier of (i) September 30, 2021, and (ii) the completion of the IPO. The outstanding balance under the Promissory Note of $191,827 was repaid upon consummation of the IPO.
Related Party Loans
In order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, members of the Company’s founding team or any of their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into up to an additional 1,000,000 warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.50 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had no borrowings under the Working Capital Loans.
Administrative Services Agreement
Commencing on February 25, 2021, the Company has agreed to pay an affiliate of its Sponsor a total of $5,000 per month for office space, utilities, and secretarial and administrative support services. For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, the Company incurred and accrued $15,000 and $5,000, respectively, of administrative services under this arrangement. Upon completion of a Business Combination or the Company’s liquidation, the Company will no longer be obligated to pay these monthly fees. As of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021, $5,000 and $55,000, respectively, of administrative support services fees were unpaid and included in accrued expenses on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet
s
.
Due to related party
An affiliate of the Sponsor paid certain operating costs on behalf of the Company. These advances are due on demand and
non-interest
bearing. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, the related party paid $5,000 and $5,000, respectively, of operating costs on behalf of the Company. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the amounts due to the related party were $32,116 and $27,116, respectively.

NOTE 6. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Registration Rights
The holders of the Founder Shares, Alignment Shares, Private Placement Warrants, and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans and upon conversion of the Founder Shares and Alignment Shares) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) requiring the Company to register such securities for resale (in the case of the Founder Shares and Alignment Shares, only after conversion to the Company’s Class A ordinary shares). The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company registers such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination. However, the Registration Rights Agreement provides that the Company will not permit any registration statement filed under the Securities Act to become effective until termination of the applicable lockup period. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statement.
Underwriting Agreement
The underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Unit, or $24,150,000 in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.
NOTE 7. SHAREHOLDERS’ DEFICIT
Preference Shares
The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 preference shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. The Company’s Board is authorized to fix the voting rights, if any, designations, powers, preferences, the relative, participating, optional or other special rights and any qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, applicable to the shares of each series. The Board is able to, without shareholder approval, issue preference shares with voting and other rights that could adversely affect the voting power and other rights of the holders of the ordinary shares and could have anti-takeover effects. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no preference shares issued or outstanding.
Class A Ordinary Shares
The Company is authorized to issue 800,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no Class A ordinary shares issued and outstanding, excluding 69,000,000
Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption and classified in temporary equity at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.
Class B Ordinary Shares
The Company is authorized to issue 80,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Class B ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 14,785,715 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding.
The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares on the business day following the completion of a Business Combination, on a
one-for-one
basis
, subject to adjustment.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The Class
 C ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares at the earlier of (i) a time after the completion of a Business Combination in which the last reported sale price of Class A ordinary shares for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period equals or exceeds $15.25 if occurring before the third anniversary of a Business Combination, $23.00 if occurring before the sixth anniversary of a Business Combination or $35.00 if occurring before the ninth anniversary of a Business Combination, and (ii) subsequent to the completion of a Business Combination, the date on which the Company completes a merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in both a change of control and all of its public shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property, in each case, on a
one-for-one
basis
, subject to adjustment. The Class C ordinary shares will be returned to the Company for cancellation in the event that they have not converted into Class A ordinary shares nine years after a Business Combination.
In the case that additional Class A ordinary shares, or equity-linked securities, are issued or deemed issued in excess of the amounts issued in the IPO and related to the closing of the Company’s initial Business Combination, except if such is the result of the conversion of the Company’s Class B ordinary shares or Class C ordinary shares, the ratio at which the Class B ordinary shares and Class C ordinary shares will convert into Class A ordinary shares will be adjusted (unless the holders of a majority of the issued and outstanding Class B ordinary shares and Class C ordinary shares, as applicable in each case, agree to waive such anti-dilution adjustment with respect to any such issuance or deemed issuance) so that the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Class B ordinary shares and Class C ordinary shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an
as-converted
basis, 15% and 15%, respectively, of the sum of (i) the total number of the Company’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares upon completion of the IPO, plus (ii) the total number of ordinary shares issued or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities (as defined herein) or deemed issued by the Company in connection with or in relation to the completion of the initial Business Combination (including the forward purchase shares, but not the forward purchase warrants), excluding (1) any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination, and (2) any private placement warrants issued to the Sponsor or any of its affiliates upon conversion of working capital loans. Any conversion of Class B ordinary shares or Class C ordinary shares described herein will take effect as a compulsory redemption of Class B ordinary shares or Class C ordinary shares and an issuance of Class A ordinary shares as a matter of Cayman Islands law. In no event will Class B ordinary shares or Class C ordinary shares convert into Class A ordinary shares at a rate of less than one to one.
NOTE 8. WARRANTS
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 17,250,000 Public Warrants outstanding. Each whole warrant entitles the registered holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment as discussed below, at any time commencing 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, provided that an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants and a current prospectus relating to them is available (or we permit holders to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis under the circumstances specified in the warrant agreement) and such shares are registered, qualified or exempt from registration under the securities, or blue sky, laws of the state of residence of the holder. Pursuant to the warrant agreement, a warrant holder may exercise its warrants only for a whole number of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares. This means only a whole warrant may be exercised at a given time by a warrant holder. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the units, no cash will be paid in lieu of fractional warrants and only whole warrants will trade.
The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 20 business days after the closing of a Business Combination, it will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the same to become effective and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration or redemption of the Warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. If a registration statement covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants is not effective by the 60th business day after the closing of a Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise Warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. In addition, if the Class A ordinary shares are at the time

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
of
any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of the Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and, in the event the Company elects to do so, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, but it will use its best efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available. In such event, each holder would pay the exercise price by surrendering the warrants for that number of Class A ordinary shares equal to the lesser of (A) the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of the number of Class A ordinary shares underlying the warrants, multiplied the excess of the “fair market value” less the exercise price of the warrants by (y) the fair market value and (B) 0.3611 Class A ordinary shares per whole warrant. The “fair market value” shall mean the volume weighted average price of the Class A ordinary shares for the 10 trading days ending on the trading day prior to the date on which the notice of exercise is received by the warrant agent.
Redemption of warrants when the price per Class
 A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00:
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Public Warrants:
 
   
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
 
   
upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder; and
 
   
if, and only if, the last reported sale price of the Class A ordinary shares for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period ending three business days before sending the notice of redemption to the warrant holders (the “Reference Value”) equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share
sub-divisions,
share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like).
If and when the Warrants become redeemable by the Company, the Company may exercise its redemption right even if it is unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws. However, the Company will not redeem the warrants unless an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares is available throughout the
30-day
redemption period.
Redemption of warrants when the price per share of Class
 A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00:
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants:
 
   
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares of Class A ordinary shares to be determined by reference to an agreed table based on the redemption date and the “fair market value” of shares of Class A ordinary shares;
 
   
if, and only if, the Reference Value equals or exceeds $10.00 per share (as adjusted for share
sub-divisions,
share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like); and
 
   
if the Reference Value is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share
sub-divisions,
share dividends, reorganization, recapitalizations and the like) the private placement warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants, as described above.
The exercise price and number of ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a share dividend, extraordinary dividend or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. However, except as described below, the Public Warrants will not be adjusted for issuances of ordinary shares at a price below its exercise price. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the Public Warrants. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of Public Warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their Public Warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with respect to such Public Warrants. Accordingly, the Public Warrants may expire worthless.

In addition
, if (x) the Company issues additional Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of a Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per ordinary share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s Board, and in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or its affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares and Alignment Shares held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of a Business Combination on the date of the completion of a Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares during the 20 trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates a Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the Public Warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $10.00 and $18.00 per share redemption trigger prices described above under “Redemption of Warrants When the Price per Class A Ordinary Share Equals or Exceeds $18.00” and “Redemption of Warrants When the Price per Class A Ordinary Share Equals or Exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 100% and 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, respectively.
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 10,533,333 Private Placement Warrants outstanding. The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants included in the Units sold in the IPO, except that (x) the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants are not transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions, (y) the Private Placement Warrants will be exercisable on a cashless basis and be
non-redeemable
so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees and (z) the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will be entitled to registration rights. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

Upon consummation of the IPO on March 2, 2021, the Company’s Warrants were classified as Level 3 due to unobservable inputs used in the initial valuation. On April 23, 2021, the Public Warrants surpassed the
52-day
threshold waiting period to be publicly traded in accordance with the Prospectus filed March 1, 2021. Once publicly traded, the observable input qualifies the liability for treatment as a Level 1 liability. As such, the Company classified the Public Warrants as Level 1. The Private Placement Warrants are subject to a call alongside the Public Warrants, it is assumed that the trading price of the public warrants is reflective of the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants. Accordingly, the Company classified the Private Placement Warrants as Level 2.

AUSTERLITZ ACQUISITION CORPORATION I
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Initially, the estimated fair value of the warrant liability was determined using Level 3 inputs. The subsequent measurements of the Public Warrants after the detachment of the Public Warrants from the Units is classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market which began in the quarter ended June 30, 2021. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the closing price of the Public Warrant was used as the fair value for the Private Warrants. As such at December 31, 2021, the Private Placement Warrants were transferred to Level 2 due to a make-whole provision which allows the Company to use the value of the closing price of the Public Warrants.
Gain on change in fair value of warrant liability on the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, is $13,891,667
and $
4,098,833, respectively.
NOTE 10. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
In accordance with ASC Topic 855,
Subsequent Events
, which establishes general standards of accounting for and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued, the Company evaluated subsequent events that occurred after the balance sheet date up to the date the condensed consolidated financial statements were issued and has concluded that no such events that would require adjustment or disclosure have occurred.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report.
Overview
We are a blank check company incorporated on December 21, 2020 as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar Business Combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate a Business Combination using cash from the proceeds of our IPO and the Private Placement, the proceeds of the sale of our shares in connection with a Business Combination, shares issued to the owners of the target, debt issued to bank or other lenders or the owners of the target, or a combination of the foregoing.
The registration statement for our Initial Public Offering was declared effective on February 25, 2021. On March 2, 2021, we completed our IPO of 69,000,000 Units sold to the public, including the issuance of 9,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise in full of its over-allotment option, at the price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $690,000,000. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company and
one-fourth
of one redeemable warrant. Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one of our Class A ordinary shares at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. Simultaneously with the closing of our IPO, we completed the sale to the Sponsor of an aggregate of 10,533,333 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds of approximately $15,800,000. Each Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The proceeds from the Private Placement Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the IPO held in the Trust Account.
Following our IPO, the full exercise of the over-allotment option and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, a total of $690,000,000 was placed in the Trust Account. We incurred $38,680,632 in transaction costs, including $13,800,000 of underwriting fees, $24,150,000 of deferred underwriting fees and $730,632 of other offering costs. Offering costs of $1,623,874 were allocated to warrant liabilities and expensed as incurred.
The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of its IPO and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company’s initial business combination
 
21

must be with one or more operating businesses or assets that together have an aggregate fair market value equal to at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (excluding the deferred underwriting commissions and taxes payable on the interest earned on the Trust Account) at the time the Company signs a definitive agreement in connection with an initial business combination. However, the Company will only complete a Business Combination if the post-transaction company owns or acquires 50% or more of the outstanding voting securities of the target or otherwise is not required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act.
The
COVID-19
pandemic has caused difficult market and economic conditions globally since its outbreak in 2020 and the full impact of
COVID-19
continues to evolve. The impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic on our results of operations, financial position and cash flows will depend on future developments, including resurgences and variants of the virus that causes
COVID-19,
as well as efforts to reduce its spread, such as travel bans and other restrictions. These developments and the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic on the financial markets and the overall economy are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted. If the financial markets and/or the overall economy continue to be impacted for an extended period, our ability to complete our initial Business Combination may be materially adversely affected due to significant governmental measures to contain the
COVID-19
pandemic or treat its impact, including travel restrictions, the shutdown of businesses and quarantines, among others, which may limit our ability to have meetings with potential investors or affect the ability of a potential target company’s personnel, vendors and service providers to negotiate and consummate our initial Business Combination in a timely manner.
Results of Operations
We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities since inception have been organizational activities, those necessary to prepare for our IPO and, after completing our IPO, identifying a target company for a Business Combination. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after completion of a Business Combination. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as expenses as we conduct due diligence on prospective Business Combination candidates. Additionally, we recognize
non-cash
gains and losses with other income (expense) related to changes in recurring fair value measurement of our Warrant liabilities at each reporting period.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had net income of $13,640,084 which consists of $251,583 in operating costs, offset by
non-cash
gains of $13,891,667 related to changes in the fair value of the derivative warrant liabilities. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had a net loss of $5,752,119 which consisted of $48,040 in operating costs and further contributed by $4,098,833 related to changes in the fair value of the derivative warrant liabilities and $1,605,246 related to transaction costs allocation to derivative warrant liabilities.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of March 31, 2022, we had cash of $1,800,556 outside of the Trust Account. We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to fund working capital, identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete a Business Combination.
As of March 31, 2022, we had cash of $690,000,000 held in the Trust Account. We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account (less taxes paid and deferred underwriting commissions) to complete our initial Business Combination. To the extent that our capital stock or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial Business Combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.
In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with our initial Business Combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan us funds as may be required. If we complete a Business Combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our initial Business Combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from our Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants identical to the Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.50 per warrant at the option of the lender.
 
22

We do not currently believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business. However, if our estimate of the costs of identifying a target business, undertaking due diligence and negotiating a Business Combination are more than we estimate, we may have insufficient funds available to operate our business prior to our initial Business Combination. Moreover, we may need to obtain additional financing either to complete our initial Business Combination or because we become obligated to redeem a significant number of our Public Shares upon consummation of our initial Business Combination, in which case we may issue additional securities or incur debt in connection with such Business Combination. Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, we would only complete such financing simultaneously with the completion of our initial Business Combination. If we are unable to complete our initial Business Combination because we do not have sufficient funds available to us, we will be forced to cease operations and liquidate the Trust Account. In addition, following our initial Business Combination, if cash on hand is insufficient, we may need to obtain additional financing in order to meet our obligations.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash used by operating activities was $2,167,621. Net income of $13,640,084 was affected by $13,891,667 related to changes in the fair value of warrants and changes in operating assets and liabilities, which used an aggregate of $1,926,038 of cash used from operating activities.
For the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $728,017. Net loss of $5,752,119 was affected by $1,605,246 transaction costs allocated to derivative warrant liabilities and partially offset by the changes in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities of $4,098,833. The changes in operating assets and liabilities provided an aggregated of $679,977 of cash used from operating activities.
The Company had no cash flow from investing or financing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2022.
See discussion under the header “Liquidity and Going Concern Consideration” in Note 1 to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in Item 1 of Part I of this Quarterly Report for discussion of management’s consideration of the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
Off-Balance
Sheet Financing Arrangements
We had no obligations, assets or liabilities, which would be considered
off-balance
sheet arrangements as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities.
We have not entered into any
off-balance
sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or purchased any
non-financial
assets.
Contractual Obligations
We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations or long-term liabilities, other than an agreement to pay Cannae a monthly fee up to $5,000 for office space and administrative support services. We began incurring these fees on February 25, 2021 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of a Business Combination and our liquidation.
The Company will provide its shareholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a general meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company. The shareholders will be entitled to redeem their shares for a pro rata portion of the amount held in the Trust Account (initially $10.00 per share), calculated as of two business days prior to the completion of a Business Combination,
 
23

including any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations. There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Class A ordinary shares are recorded at redemption value and classified as temporary equity, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480
Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity
(“ASC 480”).
Critical Accounting Estimates
The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and expenses during the period reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting estimates effecting our financial statements:
Warrant Liabilities and Backstop Agreement Asset
The Company accounts for the Warrants and Backstop Agreement as either equity-classified or liability-classified instruments based on an assessment of the specific terms of the Warrants and Backstop Agreement and the applicable authoritative guidance in ASC 480 and ASC Topic 815,
Derivatives and Hedging
(“ASC 815”). The assessment considers whether the Warrants and Backstop Agreement are freestanding financial instruments pursuant to ASC 480, meet the definition of a liability pursuant to ASC 480, and meet all of the requirements for equity classification under ASC 815, including whether the Warrants and Backstop Agreement are indexed to the Company’s own ordinary shares and whether the warrant holders could potentially require “net cash settlement” in a circumstance outside of the Company’s control, among other conditions for equity classification. This assessment, which requires the use of professional judgment, is conducted at the time of issuance of the Warrants and execution of the Backstop Agreement and as of each subsequent quarterly period end date while the Warrants and Backstop Agreement are outstanding. For issued or modified instruments such as warrants and forward purchases of equity that meet all of the criteria for equity classification, such instruments are required to be recorded as a component of additional paid- in capital at the time of issuance. For issued or modified instruments that do not meet all the criteria for equity classification, such instruments are required to be recorded as liabilities at their initial fair value on the date of issuance, and each balance sheet date thereafter. Changes in the estimated fair value of liability-classified instruments are recognized as a
non-cash
gain or loss on the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
The Company accounts for the Warrants and Backstop Agreement in accordance with ASC
815-40
under which the Warrants and Backstop Agreement do not meet the criteria for equity classification and must be recorded as assets or liabilities. The Backstop Agreement was terminated on November 11, 2021.
See Note 8 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in Item 1 of Part I of this Quarterly Report for further discussion of the pertinent terms of the Warrants and Note 9 for further discussion of the methodology used to determine the fair value of the Company’s liability for the Warrants.
Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption
We account for our Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with the guidance in ASC 480. Class A ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption are classified as a liability instrument and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable ordinary shares (including ordinary shares that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, ordinary shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. Our Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ deficit section of our unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.
 
24

Net Income (Loss) per Ordinary Share
The Company has three classes of shares, one for each of its Class A, Class B, and Class C ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the three classes of shares. Net income (loss) per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the year. We apply the
two-class
method in calculating earnings per share. Refer to Note 2 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in Item 1 of Part I of this Quarterly Report for further discussion of the calculation of our net income (loss) per share.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
Refer to Note 2 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in Item 1 of Part I of this Quarterly Report for discussion of management’s consideration of recently issued accounting pronouncements.
 
ITEM 4.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management was required to apply its judgment in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2021. Based upon their evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15 (e) and 15d-15 (e) under the Exchange Act) were not effective, due to the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting related to the Company’s accounting for complex financial instruments as described in the Explanatory Note in our Quarterly Report Form 10-Q/A filed on January 10, 2022 and in the footnotes to the financial statements included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021, as filed with the SEC on May 17, 2021. As a result, we performed additional analyses as deemed necessary to ensure that our financial statements were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Management believes that the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report present fairly in all material respects our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.
We do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all instances of fraud. Disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Further, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that we have detected all our control deficiencies and instances of fraud, if any. The design of disclosure controls and procedures also is based partly on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
Other than the steps taken to remediate the material weakness identified in prior periods and further described below, there was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
 
25

We have previously identified a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. The material weakness was due to management’s review of the accounting treatment for the financial instruments issued in the initial public offering and sold in the concurrent private placement. Management’s review was insufficient to identify a classification error that led to our restatement of our financial statements, as described in Note 2 to our Quarterly Report Form 10-Q/A filed on January 10, 2022. Management has made changes in its internal control over financial reporting to enhance our processes to identify and appropriately apply applicable accounting requirements to better evaluate and understand the nuances of the complex accounting standards that apply to our financial statements, including enhanced communication among our personnel and third-party professionals with whom we consult regarding complex accounting applications. We are in the process of validating that those processes and controls are operating effectively. The Company can offer no assurance that these changes will ultimately have the intended effects. As of the date of this Quarterly Report, this has not been remediated.
