KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp. V (the “Company” or “Kensington”) was incorporated on March 19, 2021 as a Cayman Islands exempted company. The Company was incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). The Company is an emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.
As of September 30, 2023, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from March 19, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2023 relates to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) described below, and since the Initial Public Offering, its search for a Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates
non-operating
income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering.
The Company’s sponsor is Kensington Capital Sponsor V LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”). The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on August 12, 2021. On August 17, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 27,600,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), which includes the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase 3,600,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $276.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $15.7 million, of which approximately $9.7 million and approximately $889,000 was for deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 5) and offering costs allocated to derivate warrant liabilities, respectively.
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the private placement (the “Initial Private Placement” and together with the Additional Private Placement (as defined below), the “Private Placements”) of 11,360,000 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, with the Additional Private Placement Warrants (as defined below), the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $0.75 per Private Placement Warrant to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $8.5 million (see Note 4).
Upon closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Initial Private Placement , $276.0 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and of the Private Placement Warrants in the Initial Private Placement were placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) located in the United States with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and invested only in U.S. “government securities,” within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 185 days or less, or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule
2a-7
under the Investment Company Act, which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.
On each of August 4, 2022 and February 15, 2023, in connection with the Extensions as described below, the Company consummated an additional private placement (each, an “ Additional Private Placement” and collectively, the “Additional Private Placements”) of 3,680,000 warrants (each, an “Additional Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Additional Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $0.75 per Additional Private Placement Warrant, generating total proceeds of an aggregate of approximately $5.5 million. The Additional Private Placement Warrants were purchased by the Sponsor and are substantially similar to the Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor at the time of the Company’s Initial Public Offering. The Additional Private Placement Warrants were issued pursuant to, and are governed by, the Warrant Agreement that the Company entered into at the time of the Initial Public Offering. Upon closing of the Additional Private Placements, the proceeds received by the Company in connection with the issuance of the Additional Private Placement Warrants were deposited in the Trust Account.

KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
On August 11, 2023 and August 14, 2023, the Sponsor and the Company entered into agreements (the
“Non-Redemption
Agreements”) with several unaffiliated third parties in exchange for them agreeing not to redeem an aggregate of 2,600,000 Class A ordinary shares (the
“Non-Redeemed
Shares”) of the Company at the extraordinary general meeting called by the Company (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”) to approve, among other proposals, an extension of time for the Company to consummate an initial business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024 (the“ Extension”). In exchange for the foregoing commitment not to redeem such shares, the Sponsor has agreed to transfer to such investors an aggregate of 568,750 Class B ordinary shares of the Company held by the Sponsor immediately following the consummation of an initial business combination if they continue to hold such
Non-Redeemed
Shares through the Extraordinary General Meeting. The extension to consummate a business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024 was approved by the Company’s shareholders on August 15, 2023 and the investors subject to the
Non-Redemption
Agreements did not redeem their shares. The Company estimated the aggregate fair value of the Sponsor shares attributable to the
Non-Redemption
Agreements to be $0.6 million or $0.97 per share. In connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting, holders of 23,057,267 Class A ordinary shares exercised their right to redeem their shares for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.67 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $246.0 million.
The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination successfully. The Company must complete an initial Business Combination with one or more operating businesses or assets with a fair market value equal to at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (net of amounts disbursed to management for working capital purposes, if permitted, and excluding the amount of any deferred underwriting discount). 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 acquires a controlling interest in the target business sufficient for it not to be required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act.
The Company will provide holders of the Company’s outstanding Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, sold in the Initial Public Offering (the “Public 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, solely in its discretion. The Public Shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then held in the Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay the Company’s taxes, net of taxes payable (redemption value was approximately $10.67 per Public Share as of September 30, 2023), calculated as of two business days prior to the initial Business Combination. The
per-share
amount to be distributed to Public Shareholders who redeem their Public Shares will not be reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company will pay to the underwriters (as discussed in Note 5). These Public Shares were recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.” The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. The Company will not redeem the Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. If a shareholder vote is not required by applicable law or stock exchange rule 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 (the “Memorandum and Articles”), 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 stock exchange rule, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or 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. Additionally, each Public Shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares without voting, and if they do vote, irrespective of whether they

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
vote for or against the proposed transaction. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the initial shareholders (as defined below) agreed to vote any Founder Shares (as defined below in Note 4) and any Public Shares held by them in favor of a Business Combination.
The Memorandum and Articles provide 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”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% or more of the Public Shares, without the prior consent of the Company. The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors (the “initial shareholders”) agreed, pursuant to a letter agreement with the Company, that they will not propose any amendment to the Memorandum and Articles (A) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to allow redemption in connection with the initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination by August 17, 2024 (the “Combination Period”) or (B) with respect to any other provision relating to shareholders’ rights or
pre-initial
Business Combination activity, unless the Company provides the Public Shareholders with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares upon approval of any such amendment at a
per-share
price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (which interest shall be net of taxes payable) divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares.
The Company initially had 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering to consummate the initial Business Combination. However, if the Company
anticipated
t
h
at it may not be able to consummate the initial Business Combination within 12 months, the Company
was permitted to
,
by resolution of its board of directors at the option of the Sponsor, extend the period of time the Company
had
to consummate an initial Business Combination up to two times, each by an additional 6 months (for a total of up to an additional 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering), subject to the Sponsor purchasing additional Private Placement Warrants. The Company’s shareholders
were
not entitled to vote on or redeem their shares in connection with any such extension. Pursuant to the terms of the Memorandum and Articles, in order to extend the period of time to consummate an initial Business Combination in such a manner, the Sponsor
had to
purchase an additional 3,680,000 Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $0.75 per warrant, and deposit $0.10 per each Unit (for an aggregate of approximately $2.8 million), in proceeds into the Trust Account on or prior to the date of the applicable deadline, for each
6-month
extension. On August 4, 2022 and February 15, 2023, the Company elected to extend the Combination Period by 6 months each time to August 17, 2023 (the “Extensions”). On July 28, 2023, the Company filed a definitive proxy statement for the solicitation of proxies in connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company’s shareholders held on August 15, 2023 to consider and vote on, among other proposals, an amendment to the Company’s Memorandum and Articles to extend the date by which the Company must consummate a business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024.
 
The extension to consummate a business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024 was approved by the Company’s shareholders on August 15, 2023.
The initial shareholders agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares held by them if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the initial shareholders acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. The underwriters agreed to waive their rights to the deferred underwriting commission (see Note 5) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within in the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares.
I
n the event of such distribution, it is possible that the per share value of the residual assets remaining available for distribution (including Trust Account assets) will be only, or less than, $10.00. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor agreed to be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party (except for the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm) for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has discussed entering into a transaction agreement (a “Target”), reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below the lesser of (i) $10.00 per Public Share and (ii) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, if less than $10.00 per Public Share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, less taxes payable, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims

by a third party or Target that executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account nor will it apply to any claims under the Company’s indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering 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, then 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, prospective target businesses and 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.
Emerging Growth Company
The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, 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 independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, 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)(l) 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 an 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 that is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company that has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.
Risks and Uncertainties
In February 2022, the Russian Federation and Belarus commenced a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including the United States, have instituted economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and Belarus. Further, the impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy are not determinable as of the date of these unaudited condensed financial statements. The specific impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these unaudited condensed financial statements.
On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the “IR Act”) was signed into federal law. The IR Act provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases of stock by publicly traded U.S. domestic corporations and certain U.S. domestic subsidiaries of publicly traded foreign corporations occurring on or after January 1, 2023. The excise tax is imposed on the repurchasing corporation itself, not its shareholders from which shares are repurchased. The amount of the excise tax is generally 1% of the fair market value of the shares repurchased at the time of the repurchase. However, for purposes of calculating the excise tax, repurchasing corporations are permitted to net the fair market value of certain new stock issuances against the fair market value of stock repurchases during the same taxable year. In addition, certain exceptions apply to the excise tax. The U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) has been given authority to provide regulations and other
 
8

KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
guidance to carry out and prevent the abuse or avoidance of the excise tax. Any share redemption or other share repurchase that occurs after December 31, 2022, in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise, may be subject to the excise tax. Whether and to what extent the Company would be subject to the excise tax in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise will depend on a number of factors, including (i) the fair market value of the redemptions and repurchases in connection with the Business Combination, extension or otherwise, (ii) the structure of a Business Combination, (iii) the nature and amount of any private investment in public equity (PIPE) financing or other equity issuances in connection with a Business Combination ( or otherwise issued not in connection with a Business Combination but issued within the same taxable year of a Business Combination) and (iv) the content of regulations and other guidance from the Treasury. In addition, because the excise tax would be payable by the Company and not by the redeeming holder, the mechanics of any required payment of the excise tax have not been determined. The foregoing could cause a reduction in the cash available on hand to complete a Business Combination and in the Company’s ability to complete a Business Combination.
On December 27, 2022, the Treasury and Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) issued a Notice
2023-2
(“Notice”), which provided interim guidance regarding the application of the corporate stock repurchase excise tax until the issuance of proposed regulations. The Notice excluded the distributions complete liquidation of a corporation from the base of the excise tax. The Notice also excludes from the scope of the excise tax any distribution made during the taxable year in which a corporation fully liquidates and dissolves, even if a distribution precedes the formal decision to liquidate.
Termination of Business Combination Agreement
On April 6, 2023, the Company entered into a business combination agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”) with Arrival, a joint stock company (
société anonyme
) governed by the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, having its registered office at 60A, rue des Bruyères,
L-1274
Howald, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and registered with the RCS under number B248209 (“Arrival”).
Effective as of July 3, 2023 and in accordance with Section 9.01(a) of the Business Combination Agreement, the Company and Arrival mutually agreed to terminate the Business Combination Agreement, pursuant to a letter agreement between Arrival and the Company (the “Termination Letter”).
Liquidity and Going Concern
As of September 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $1.4 million in its operating bank account and a working capital deficit of approximately $1.7 million.
The Company’s liquidity needs prior to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering were satisfied through the payment of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover for certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for issuance of Founder Shares (as defined in Note 4), and the loan from the Sponsor of approximately $150,000 under the Note (as defined in Note 4), which was converted into a Working Capital Loan (as defined in Note 4) on August 17, 2021. Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company’s liquidity has been satisfied through the net proceeds from the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and the Initial Private Placement held outside of 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 (see Note 4). As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Working Capital Loan was $150,000 (see Note 4).
On August 29, 2023, the Sponsor loaned the Company an aggregate of up
to $950,250
to cover expenses related to the Company’s initial business combination pursuant to a promissory note (the “Second Note”). The Second Note is noninterest bearing and payable on the earliest
of: (i) the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination unless converted into working capital warrants at the option of the Sponsor, at a
 
price of $0.75 per
warrant, as described in the registration statement that the Company filed in connection with the initial public offering of its securities, (ii) August 17, 2024, and (iii) the liquidation of the Company. Such working capital warrants

KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
would be identical to the private placement warrants issued to the Sponsor in a private placement in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Second Note was $950,250 and $0, respectively (see Note 4).
Based upon the analysis above, management has determined that the Company does not have sufficient liquidity to meet its anticipated obligations through the liquidation date or consummation of a merger. The Company must consummate a business combination by August 17, 2024. 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. In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with the ASC
205-40,
the Company’s management has determined that the liquidity condition and mandatory liquidation, should a Business Combination not occur, and potential subsequent dissolution raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
NOTE 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and Article 8 of Regulation
S-X.
Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal accruals) considered for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023 or any future period.
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form
10-K
(the “Form
10-K”)
for the year ended December 31, 2022, as filed with the SEC on April 03, 2023, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto. The financial information as of December 31, 2022, is derived from the audited financial statements presented in the
Form 10-K.
The Form 10-K had a typographical error in the Class B shares and Additional Paid in Capital balances reported on the Company’s statements of changes in shareholders’ deficit for the year ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, whereby Class B shares of 0 and $0 should have been reported as 6,900,000 and $690 and additional paid in capital of $24,310 should have been reported as $0. Class B shares and additional paid in capital were reported correctly in the balance sheets as of December 31, 2022 and 2021 within the Form
10-K.
The Company has corrected this typographical error in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of changes in shareholders’ deficit.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of unaudited condensed financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the reporting period. 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 unaudited condensed financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. 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. There were no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Investments Held in Trust Account
The Company’s portfolio of investments is comprised of U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 185 days or less, or investments in money market funds that invest in U.S. government securities and generally have a readily determinable fair value, or a combination thereof. When the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are comprised of U.S. government securities, the investments are classified as trading securities. When the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are comprised of money market funds, the investments are recognized at fair value. Trading securities and investments in money market funds are presented on the condensed balance sheets at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in income on investments held in the Trust Account in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.
Concentration of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation coverage limit of $250,000. As of September 30, 2023, the Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities which qualify as financial instruments under the FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements,” equal or approximate the carrying amounts represented in the unaudited condensed balance sheets.
Fair Value Measurements
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 consist of:
 
   
Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) 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.

Derivative Financial Instruments
The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments, including issued stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to ASC 480 and ASC
815-15.
The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is reassessed at the end of each reporting period.
The 20,700,000 warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering (the “Public Warrants”) and the 18,720,000 Private Placement Warrants are recognized as derivative liabilities in accordance with ASC
815-40.
Accordingly, the Company recognizes the warrant instruments as liabilities at fair value and adjusts the instruments to fair value at each reporting period. The liabilities are subject to remeasurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in the Company’s unaudited condensed statements of operations. The fair value of the Public Warrants issued in connection with the Public Offering were initially estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation model. For periods where no observable traded price is available, the fair value continues to be estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation. The fair value of the Private Placement Warrants is determined using Black-Scholes option pricing model. The determination of the fair value of the warrant liability may be subject to change as more current information becomes available and accordingly the actual results could differ significantly. Derivative warrant liabilities are classified as
non-current
liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.
Working Capital Loans-Related Party
The Company has elected the fair value option to account for its Working Capital Loans with its Sponsor as defined and more fully described in Note 4. As a result of applying the fair value option, the Company records the loans fair value with a gain or loss recognized at issuance, and subsequent changes in fair value are recorded as change in the fair value of Working Capital Loans reported in the condensed statements of operations. The fair value is based on prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement. These inputs reflect management’s and, if applicable, an independent third-party valuation firm’s own assumption about the assumptions a market participant would use in pricing the asset or liability.
Offering Costs Associated with Initial Public Offering
Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs 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 derivative warrant liabilities were expensed as incurred and presented as
non-operating
expenses in the condensed statements of operations. Offering costs associated with the Class A ordinary shares were charged against the carrying value of Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company classifies deferred underwriting commissions as
non-current
liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.
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 Topic 480. Class A ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A ordinary shares (including Class A 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 the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A 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 the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, 4,542,733 and 27,600,000 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ deficit section of the Company’s condensed balance sheets as of September 30, 2023 and December 30, 2022, respectively.
Effective with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company recognized the remeasurement from initial book value to redemption amount, which resulted in charges against additional
paid-in
capital (to the extent available) and accumulated deficit.
Net Income per Ordinary Share
The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” The Company has two classes of shares, which are referred to as Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income per ordinary share is calculated by dividing the net income by the weighted average shares of ordinary shares outstanding for the respective period.
The calculation of diluted net income does not consider the effect of the warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering (including the consummation of the over-allotment) and the Private Placement Warrants to purchase an aggregate of 39,420,000 Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted income per share, because their exercise is contingent upon future events and their inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. The Company has considered the effect of Class B ordinary shares that were excluded from the weighted average number of basic shares outstanding as they were contingent on the exercise of over-allotment option by the underwriters. Since the contingency was satisfied, the Company has included these shares in the weighted average number as of the beginning of the period to determine the dilutive impact of these shares. Remeasurement of the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from net income per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.
The following table presents a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator used to compute basic and diluted net income per share for each class of ordinary shares:

Income Taxes
The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes under FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that included the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. Deferred tax assets were deemed de minimis as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 and a full valuation allowance was recorded against such deferred tax assets.
FASB ASC 740 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.
There were no unrecognized tax benefits as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. No amounts were accrued for the payment of interest and penalties as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.
The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.
There is currently no taxation imposed on income by the Government of the Cayman Islands. In accordance with Cayman income tax regulations, income taxes are not levied on the Company. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s financial statements. 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 June 2022, the FASB issued ASU
2022-03,
ASC Subtopic 820 “Fair Value Measurement of Equity Securities Subject to Contractual Sale Restrictions”. The ASU amends ASC 820 to clarify that a contractual sales restriction is not considered in measuring an equity security at fair value and to introduce new disclosure requirements for equity securities subject to contractual sale restrictions that are measured at fair value. The ASU applies to both holders and issuers of equity and equity-linked securities measured at fair value. The amendments in this ASU are effective for the Company in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for both interim and annual financial statements that have not yet been issued or made available for issuance. The Company is still evaluating the impact of this pronouncement on the condensed financial statements.

The Company’s 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 accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements.
NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING
On August 17, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 27,600,000 Units, which includes the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase 3,600,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $276.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $15.7 million, of which approximately $9.7 million and approximately $889,000 was for deferred underwriting commissions and offering costs allocated to derivate warrant liabilities, respectively.
Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share (such shares included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), and three-fourths of one redeemable warrant (each, a “Public Warrant”).
Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 7).
NOTE 4. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Founder Shares
On March 31, 2021, the Sponsor paid $25,000 to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for issuance of 7,475,000 of the Company’s Class B ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Founder Shares”). Shares and the associated amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect: (i) the surrender of 1,006,250 Class B ordinary shares to the Company for no consideration on August 6, 2021; and (ii) the share issue of 431,250 Class B ordinary shares on August 12, 2021; resulting in an aggregate of 6,900,000 Class B ordinary shares outstanding. The initial shareholders agreed to forfeit up to 900,000 Founder Shares to the extent that the over-allotment option was not exercised in full by the underwriters, so that the Founder Shares would represent 20.0% of the Company’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares after the Initial Public Offering. The underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment on August 17, 2021; thus, these 900,000 Founder Shares were no longer subject to forfeiture.
The initial shareholders agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of the Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (A) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination or (B) subsequent to the initial Business Combination, (x) if the last reported sale price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share
sub-divisions,
share capitalization, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any
30-trading
day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange, reorganization or other similar transaction that results in all of the Company’s shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.
Private Placement Warrants
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the Initial Private Placement of 11,360,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $0.75 per Private Placement Warrant to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $8.5 million.
Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one whole Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants to the Sponsor was added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. The Private Placement Warrants will be
non-redeemable
for cash and exercisable on a cashless basis.

KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The Sponsor agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell the Private Placement Warrants until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination.
On each of August 4, 2022 and February 15, 2023, the Company consummated the Additional Private Placements of 3,680,000 Additional Private Placement Warrants at a price of $0.75 per Additional Private Placement Warrant, generating total proceeds of approximately $5.5 million. The Additional Private Placement Warrants were purchased by the Sponsor and are substantially similar to the Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor at the time of the Company’s Initial Public Offering. The Additional Private Placement Warrants have been issued pursuant to, and are governed by, the Warrant Agreement that the Company entered into at the time of the Initial Public Offering.
Related Party Loans
On March 24, 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company an aggregate of up to $300,000 to cover expenses related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). This loan was
non-interest
bearing and payable upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering; provided that amounts due under the Note
co
uld
, at the option of the Sponsor, be converted into Working Capital Loans (as defined below). The Company borrowed $150,000 under the Note in connection with the Initial Public Offering. The Sponsor elected to convert the Note into a Working Capital Loan upon closing of the Initial Public Offering.
In addition, in order to fund working capital deficiencies or 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, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company may repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans could 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 or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $2,000,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $0.75 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. The Company has drawn $150,000 under the Note, which was converted into a Working Capital Loan on August 17, 2021. As of September 30, 2023 (unaudited) and December 31, 2022, the fair value of this Working Capital Loan was $150,000 in the accompanying condensed balance sheets.
On August 29, 2023, the Sponsor loaned the Company an aggregate of up to $950,250 to cover expenses related to the Company’s initial business combination pursuant to a promissory note (the “Second Note”). The Second Note is noninterest bearing and payable on the earliest of: (i) the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination unless converted into working capital warrants at the option of the Sponsor, at a price of $0.75 per warrant, as described in the registration statement that the Company filed in connection with the initial public offering of its securities, (ii) August 17, 2024, and (iii) the liquidation of the Company. Such working capital warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants issued to the Sponsor in a private placement in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Second Note was $950,250 and $0, respectively.

Service and Administrative Fees
On August 12, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement with DEHC LLC, an affiliate of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, pursuant to which the Company agreed to pay for service and administrative fees of $20,000 per month for 18 months (or February 12, 2023). On August 29, 2023, the agreement was amended to extend the services to begin on August 17, 2023 through August 17, 2024 with the same monthly payment. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company incurred $40,000 and $60,000, respectively, for such expenses, included as general and administrative expenses-related party on the condensed statements of operations contained herein. For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company incurred $60,000 and $180,000, respectively, for such expenses, included as general and administrative expenses-related party on the condensed statements of operations contained herein. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had no outstanding balance for services in connection with such agreement.
The Sponsor, executive officers and directors, or any of their respective affiliates, will be reimbursed for any
out-of-pocket
expenses incurred in connection with activities on the Company’s behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable Business Combinations. The Company’s audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made by the Company to the Sponsor, officers, directors or their affiliates.
Non-Redemption
Agreements
On August 11, 2023 and August 14, 2023, the Company entered into
Non-Redemption
Agreements with various unaffiliated third parties pursuant to which these shareholders have committed not to redeem 2,600,000 of their Class A ordinary shares at the Extraordinary General Meeting held on August 15, 2023. In consideration of this agreement, the Sponsor has agreed to transfer 568,750 of its Class B ordinary shares to such investors at the closing of the Business Combination. The Company estimated the aggregate fair value of the Sponsor shares attributable to the
Non-Redemption
Agreements to be $0.6 million or $0.97 per share. The excess of the fair value of the Sponsor shares was determined to be an offering cost in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A. The Company accounted for the transfer of the Sponsor’s shares to
non-redeeming
shareholders as a capital contribution by the Sponsor with a corresponding charge to additional
paid-in
capital to recognize the fair value of the shares transferred.
The fair value of the Sponsor shares was based on the following significant inputs:

These holders are entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement
The Company granted the underwriters a
45-day
option from the date of the final prospectus relating to the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 3,600,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at the Initial Public Offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment on August 17, 2021.
The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $5.5 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. $0.35 per unit, or approximately $9.7 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. 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.
Contingent Fee Arrangement
On August 3, 2023, the Company entered into an arrangement with J.V.B Financial Group, acting through its Cohen & Company Capital Markets division (“CCM”) to obtain capital market advisory services and to act as the Company’s placement agent in connection with raising capital with a specific target in its search for a Business Combination with an unaffiliated third party (“Target”). CCM would be entitled to an advisor fee of $2.0 million and a transaction fee of an amount equal to 5% of the sum of the gross proceeds raised from investors and received by the Company and Target plus proceeds released from the Trust Account without restriction with respect to any of the Class A ordinary shares that did not redeem such shares in connection with the Extension or the Business Combination (“Arrangement”). The Company may pay CCM a discretionary fee of $1.0 million if the Company determines in its sole discretion that the performance of CCM warrants such additional fee. Per the Arrangement, the fees for these services
a
r
e
 contingent upon the closing of a Business Combination and therefore not included as liabilities on the accompanying balance sheets. Under the arrangement, the Company will also reimburse CCM for reasonable expenses. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, no expenses have been claimed.
NOTE 6. CLASS A ORDINARY SHARES SUBJECT TO POSSIBLE REDEMPTION

As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were no preference shares issued or outstanding.
Class
 A Ordinary Shares-
The Company is authorized to issue 100,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 4,542,733 and 27,600,000, respectively, Class A ordinary shares issued and outstanding, which were all subject to possible redemption and have been classified as temporary equity (see Note 6).
Class
 B Ordinary Shares-
The Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 6,900,000 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding, which amounts have been adjusted to reflect the share
s
surrendered as discussed in Note 4.
Shareholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by shareholders; provided that, prior to the completion of the initial Business Combination, holders of the Class B ordinary shares will have the right to elect all of the Company’s directors and remove members of the Company’s board of directors for any reason. Prior to the completion of the initial Business Combination, only holders of the Class B ordinary shares will have the right to vote on the Company’s appointment of directors. Holders of the Public Shares will not be entitled to vote on the Company’s appointment of directors during such time. In addition, prior to the completion of the initial Business Combination, holders of a majority of the outstanding Class B ordinary shares may remove a member of the Company’s board of directors for any reason. These provisions of the Memorandum and Articles may only be amended by a resolution passed by at least
two-thirds
(2/3) of all holders (which must include a simple majority of the holders of Class B ordinary shares). With respect to any other matter submitted to a vote of the Company’s shareholders, including any vote in connection with the initial Business Combination, holders of the Class A ordinary shares and holders of the Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s shareholders, except as required by law.

KENSINGTON CAPITAL ACQUISITION CORP. V
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares at the time of the initial Business Combination, or earlier at the option of the holders, on a
one-for-one
basis
, subject to adjustment for share
sub-divisions,
share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like, and subject to further adjustment as described herein.
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 Proposed Offering and related to the closing of the initial Business Combination, including pursuant to a specified future issuance, the ratio at which Class B ordinary shares shall convert into Class A ordinary shares will be adjusted ( unless the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding Class B ordinary shares agree to waive such adjustment with respect to any such issuance or deemed issuance, including a specified future issuance) so that the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Class B ordinary shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an
as-converted
basis, 20% of the sum of the total number of all ordinary shares outstanding upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering plus all Class A ordinary shares and equity-linked securities issued or deemed issued in connection with the initial Business Combination (excluding any shares or equity-linked securities issued or issuable to any seller in the initial Business Combination).
NOTE 8. DERIVATIVE WARRANT LIABILITIES
As of September 30, 2023, the Company had 20,700,000 Public Warrants and 18,720,000 Private Placement Warrants outstanding. As of December 31, 2022, the Company had 20,700,000 Public Warrants and 15,040,000 Private Placement Warrants outstanding.
Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional Public Warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Public Warrants will trade. The Public Warrants will become exercisable 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination; provided that the Company has an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants and a current prospectus relating to them is available 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 (or the Company permits holders to exercise their Public Warrants on a cashless basis under the circumstances specified in the warrant agreement). The Company agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 20 business days, after the closing of the initial Business Combination, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file, and within 60 business days following the initial Business Combination to have declared effective, a post-effective amendment to the registration statement of which this Report forms a part or a new registration statement covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants and to maintain a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares until the warrants expire or are redeemed; provided, that if the Class A ordinary shares are at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that it satisfies the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of 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 so elects, it will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, but it will be required to use its best efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available. The Public Warrants will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.
The warrants will have an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustments. In addition, if (x) the Company issue
s
additional shares or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per share (as adjusted for share
sub-divisions,
share capitalizations, rights issuances, subdivisions, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the Company’s board of directors, and in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor, initial shareholders or their affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by them 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,

The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants, except that (1) the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon 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, (2) the Private Placement Warrants are
non-redeemable,

Redemption of warrants for cash when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00:
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (except for the Private Placement 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; and
 
   
if, and only if, the last reported sale price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share subdivisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within the
30-trading
day period ending on the third business day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.
If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, management will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis,” as described in the warrant agreement.

Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 are recognized at the beginning of the reporting period. There were no transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 or 2022.
Level 1 assets include investments in U.S. government securities. The Company uses inputs such as actual trade data, quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources to determine the fair value of its investments.
The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants and Working Capital Loan is determined using Black-Scholes option pricing model. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recognized a
non-operating
loss from the change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities of approximately $1.6 million and a
non-operating
gain of $1.5 million, respectively, and no change in fair value of the working capital loan in the accompanying unaudited statements of operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recognized a
non-operating
gain from the change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities of approximately $1.9 million and $27.0 million, respectively, and a
non-operating
gain from the change in fair value of the working capital loan of $0 and $50,000, respectively, in the accompanying unaudited statements of operations.
The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants and Working Capital Loan, and initial fair value of the Public Warrants, was determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a Black-Scholes option pricing model are assumptions related to expected stock-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate, and dividend yield. The Company estimates the volatility of its warrants based on implied volatility from the Company’s traded warrants and from historical volatility of select peer companies’ ordinary shares that match the expected remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury
zero-coupon
yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates remaining at zero.
The following table provides quantitative information regarding Level 3 fair value measurements input for Private Placement Warrants, and Working Capital Loan at their measurement dates:

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

References to the “Company,” “Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp. V,” “Kensington,” “our,” “us” or “we” refer to Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp. V. The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21 E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). We have based these forward -looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may, “ “should, “ “could, “ “would, “ “expect, “ “plan, “ “anticipate, “ “believe,” “estimate,” “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company on March 19, 2021. We were incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”).

As of September 30, 2023, we had not yet commenced operations. All activity for the period from March 19, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2023 relates to our formation and the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”), which is described below. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. We will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering.

Our sponsor is Kensington Capital Sponsor V LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”). The registration statement for our Initial Public Offering was declared effective on August 12, 2021. On August 17, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 27,600,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), which included the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase 3,600,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $276.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $15.7 million, of which approximately $9.7 million and approximately $889,000 was for deferred underwriting commissions and offering costs allocated to derivate warrant liabilities, respectively.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the private placement (the “Initial Private Placement” and together with the Additional Private Placements (as defined below), the “Private Placements”) of 11,360,000 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively with the Additional Private Placement Warrants ( as defined below), the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $0.75 per Private Placement Warrant to our Sponsor, generating proceeds of approximately $8.5 million.

Upon closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Initial Private Placement, $276.0 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and of the Private Placement Warrants in the Initial Private Placement were placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) located in the United States with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and invested only in U.S. “government securities,” within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), with a maturity of 185 days or less, or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act, which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, as determined by us, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.

Table of Contents

On each of August 4, 2022 and February 15, 2023, in connection with the Extensions as described below, we consummated a private placement (each, an “Additional Private Placement” and collectively, the “Additional Private Placements”) of 3,680,000 warrants (each, an “Additional Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Additional Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $0.75 per Additional Private Placement Warrant, generating total proceeds of an aggregate of $5,520,000. The Additional Private Placement Warrants were purchased by the Sponsor and are substantially similar to the Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor at the time of the Initial Public Offering. The Additional Private Placement Warrants were issued pursuant to, and are governed by, the Warrant Agreement that we entered into at the time of the Initial Public Offering. Upon closing of the Additional Private Placements, the proceeds received by us in connection with the issuance of the Additional Private Placement Warrants were deposited in the Trust Account.

On August 11, 2023 and August 14, 2023, the Sponsor and the Company entered into agreements (the “Non-Redemption Agreements”) with several unaffiliated third parties in exchange for them agreeing not to redeem an aggregate of 2,600,000 Class A ordinary shares (the “Non-Redeemed Shares”) of the Company at the extraordinary general meeting called by the Company (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”) to approve, among other proposals, an extension of time for the Company to consummate an initial business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024 (the“ Extension”). In exchange for the foregoing commitment not to redeem such shares, the Sponsor has agreed to transfer to such investors an aggregate of 568,750 Class B ordinary shares of the Company held by the Sponsor immediately following the consummation of an initial business combination if they continue to hold such Non-Redeemed Shares through the Extraordinary General Meeting. The extension to consummate a business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024 was approved by the Company’s shareholders on August 15, 2023 and the investors subject to the Non-Redemption Agreements did not redeem their shares. The Company estimated the aggregate fair value of the Sponsor shares attributable to the Non-Redemption Agreements to be $0.6 million or $0.97 per share. In connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting, holders of 23,057,267 Class A ordinary shares exercised their right to redeem their shares for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.67 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $246.0 million.

The terms of the Non-Redemption Agreements are further described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 14, 2023. The foregoing description of the Non-Redemption Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form thereof, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.4 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and incorporated herein by reference.

Our 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.

We initially had 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering to consummate the initial Business Combination. However, we were able, by resolution of our board of directors at the option of our Sponsor, to extend the period of time we had to consummate an initial Business Combination up to two times, each by an additional 6 months (for a total of up to an additional 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering), subject to our Sponsor purchasing additional Private Placement Warrants. Pursuant to the terms of our amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Memorandum and Articles”), in order to extend the period of time to consummate an initial Business Combination in such a manner, our Sponsor was required to purchase an additional 3,680,000 Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $0.75 per warrant, and deposit $0.10 per each Unit (for an aggregate of approximately $2.8 million), in proceeds into the Trust Account on or prior to the date of the applicable deadline, for each 6-month extension. On August 4, 2022 and February 15, 2023, we elected to extend the Combination Period by 6 months each time to August 17, 2023 (the “Extensions”). On July 28, 2023, the Company filed a definitive proxy statement for the solicitation of proxies in connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company’s shareholders held on August 15, 2023 to consider and vote on, among other proposals, an amendment to the Company’s Memorandum and Articles to extend the date by which the Company must consummate a business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024. The extension to consummate a business combination from August 17, 2023 to August 17, 2024 was approved by the Company’s shareholders on August 15, 2023.

The foregoing description of the amendment to the Company’s Memorandum and Articles does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such amendment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Termination of Business Combination

On April 6, 2023, we entered into a business combination agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”) with Arrival, a joint stock company (société anonyme) governed by the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, having its registered office at 60A, rue des Bruyères, L-1274 Howald, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and registered with the RCS under number B248209 (“Arrival”).

Table of Contents

Effective as of July 3, 2023 and in accordance with Section 9.01(a) of the Business Combination Agreement, the Company and Arrival mutually agreed to terminate the Business Combination Agreement, pursuant to a letter agreement between Arrival and the Company (the “Termination Letter”). Under the Termination Letter, the Company waived and released all claims or causes of action against Arrival and its Non-Party Affiliates (as defined in the Termination Letter), and Arrival waived and released all claims or causes of action against the Company and its Non-Party Affiliates, that have been or could have been, could now be, or could in the future be based upon, in respect of, arise under, out or by reason of, be connected with, or relate in any manner to the Business Combination Agreement or any other Transaction Document (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement), or the negotiation, execution, or performance or non-performance of the Business Combination Agreement or any other Transaction Document (including any representation or warranty made in, in connection with, or as an inducement to, the Business Combination Agreement or any other Transaction Document).

The terms of the Termination Letter are further described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on July 3, 2023. The foregoing description of the Termination Letter is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and incorporated herein by reference.

Liquidity and Going Concern

As of September 30, 2023, we had approximately $1.4 million in our operating bank account and working capital deficit of approximately $1.7 million.

Our liquidity needs prior to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering were satisfied through the payment of $25,000 from our Sponsor to cover for certain expenses on behalf of us in exchange for issuance of Founder Shares (as defined in Note 4 to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements), and the loan from the Sponsor of approximately $150,000 under the Note (as defined in Note 4 to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements), which was converted into a Working Capital Loan (as defined in Note 4 to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements) on August 17, 2021. Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, our liquidity has been satisfied through the net proceeds from the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and the Initial Private Placement held outside of the Trust Account. In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor, or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, provide us Working Capital Loans (see Note 4 to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements). As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Working Capital Loan was $150,000.

On August 29, 2023, the Sponsor agreed to loan to us, an aggregate of up to $950,250 to cover expenses related to the Company’s initial business combination pursuant to a promissory note (the “Second Note”). The Second Note is noninterest bearing and payable on the earliest of: (i) the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination unless converted into working capital warrants at the option of the Sponsor, at a price of $0.75 per warrant, as described in the registration statement that the Company filed in connection with the initial public offering of its securities, (ii) August 17, 2024, and (iii) the liquidation of the Company. Such working capital warrants would be identical to the private placement warrants issued to the Sponsor in a private placement in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. The Company drew down $950,250 of the Second Note on August 29, 2023. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Second Note was $950,250 and $0, respectively.

The terms of the Second Note are further described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8- K filed with the SEC on August 29, 2023. The foregoing description of the Second Note is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text thereof, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and incorporated herein by reference.

Based upon the analysis above, management has determined that we do not have sufficient liquidity to meet our anticipated obligations through the liquidation date or consummation of a merger. The Company must consummate a business combination by August 17, 2024. It is uncertain that we 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 our company. In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with the ASC 205-40, our management has determined that the liquidity condition and mandatory liquidation, should a Business Combination not occur, and potential subsequent dissolution raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Risks and Uncertainties

In February 2022, the Russian Federation and Belarus commenced a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including the United States, have instituted economic sanctions against the

Russian Federation and Belarus. Further, the impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy are not determinable as of the date of these unaudited condensed financial statements. The specific impact on our financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these unaudited condensed financial statements.

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the “IR Act”) was signed into federal law. The IR Act provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases of stock by publicly traded U.S. domestic corporations and certain U.S. domestic subsidiaries of publicly traded foreign corporations occurring on or after January 1, 2023. The excise tax is imposed on the repurchasing corporation itself, not its shareholders from which shares are repurchased. The amount of the excise tax is generally 1 % of the fair market value of the shares repurchased at the time of the repurchase. However, for purposes of calculating the excise tax, repurchasing corporations are permitted to net the fair market value of certain new stock issuances against the fair market value of stock repurchases during the same taxable year. In addition, certain exceptions apply to the excise tax. The U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) has been given authority to provide regulations and other guidance to carry out and prevent the abuse or avoidance of the excise tax. Any share redemption or other share repurchase that occurs after December 31, 2022, in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise, may be subject to the excise tax. Whether and to what extent we would be subject to the excise tax in connection with a Business Combination, extension vote or otherwise will depend on a number of factors, including (i) the fair market value of the redemptions and repurchases in connection with the Business Combination, extension or otherwise, (ii) the structure of a Business Combination, (iii) the nature and amount of any private investment in public equity (PIPE) financing or other equity issuances in connection with a Business Combination ( or otherwise issued not in connection with a Business Combination but issued within the same taxable year of a Business Combination) and (iv) the content of regulations and other guidance from the Treasury. In addition, because the excise tax would be payable by us and not by the redeeming holder, the mechanics of any required payment of the excise tax have not been determined. The foregoing could cause a reduction in the cash available on hand to complete a Business Combination and in our ability to complete a Business Combination.

On December 27, 2022, the Treasury and Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) issued a Notice 2023-2 (‘‘Notice”), which provided interim guidance regarding the application of the corporate stock repurchase excise tax until the issuance of proposed regulations. The Notice excluded the distributions complete liquidation of a corporation from the base of the excise tax. The Notice also excludes from the scope of the excise tax any distribution made during the taxable year in which a corporation fully liquidates and dissolves, even if a distribution precedes the formal decision to liquidate.

Results of Operations

Our entire activity from March 19, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2023 was in preparation for the Initial Public Offering and the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. We will not generate any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial Business Combination.

For the three months ended September 30, 2023, we had net income of approximately $1.5 million, which consisted of approximately $3.5 million of income from investments held in the Trust Account, partly offset by approximately $387,000 in general and administrative expenses, $40,000 in administrative expenses-related party, and a non-cash loss of approximately $1.6 million for the change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities.

For the three months ended September 30, 2022, we had net income of approximately $2.6 million, which consisted of a non-cash gain of approximately $1.5 million for the change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities, and approximately $1.3 million of income from investments held in the Trust Account, partly offset by approximately $157,000 in general and administrative expenses, and $60,000 in administrative expenses-related party.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we had net income of approximately $8.3 million, which consisted of a non-cash gain of approximately $1.9 million for the change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities and approximately $8.7 million of income from investments held in the Trust Account, partly offset by approximately $2.3 million in general and administrative expenses, and $60,000 in administrative expenses-related party.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, we had a net income of approximately $27.7 million, which consisted of a non-cash gain of approximately $27.0 million for the change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities, $50,000 in change in fair value of Working Capital Loan – related party and approximately $1.8 million of income from investments held in the Trust Account, partly offset by approximately $914,000 in general and administrative expenses, and $180,000 in administrative expenses-related party.

Contractual Obligations

Registration Rights

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, if any, 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 are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed upon the consummation of the Initial Public Offering. These holders are entitled to certain demand and “piggyback” registration rights. We will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.

Underwriting Agreement

We granted the underwriters a 45-day option from the date of the final prospectus relating to the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 3,600,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at the Initial Public Offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment on August 17, 2021.

The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $5.5 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. $0.35 per unit, or approximately $9.7 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that we complete a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Contingent Fee Arrangement

On August 3, 2023, the Company entered into an arrangement with J.V.B Financial Group, acting through its Cohen & Company Capital Markets division (“CCM”) to obtain capital market advisory services and to act as the Company’s placement agent in connection with raising capital with a specific target in its search for a Business Combination with an unaffiliated third party (“Target”). CCM would be entitled to an advisor fee of $2.0 million and a transaction fee of an amount equal to 5% of the sum of the gross proceeds raised from investors and received by the Company and Target plus proceeds released from the Trust Account without restriction with respect to any of the Class A ordinary shares that did not redeem such shares in connection with the Extension or the Business Combination (“Arrangement”). The Company may pay CCM a discretionary fee of $1.0 million if the Company determines in its sole discretion that the performance of CCM warrants such additional fee. Per the Arrangement, the fees for these services is contingent upon the closing of a Business Combination and therefore not included as liabilities on the accompanying balance sheets. Under the arrangement, the Company will also reimburse CCM for reasonable expenses. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, no expenses have been claimed.

Service and Administrative Fees

On August 12, 2021, we entered into an agreement with DEHC LLC, an affiliate the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, pursuant to which we agreed to pay for service and administrative fees of $20,000 per month for 18 months (or February 12, 2023). On August 29, 2023, the agreement was amended to extend the services to begin on August 17, 2023 through August 17, 2024 with the same monthly payment. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company incurred $40,000 and $60,000, respectively, for such expenses, included as general and administrative expenses-related party on the statements of operations contained herein. For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company incurred $60,000 and $180,000, respectively, for such expenses, included as general and administrative expenses-related party on the statements of operations contained herein. As of September 30, 2023 and 2022, we had paid in full for such services.

The terms of the amendment to the services agreement are further described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 29, 2023. The foregoing description of the amendment to the services agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text thereof, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and incorporated herein by reference.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

This management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our unaudited condensed financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in our condensed financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to fair value of financial instruments and accrued expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We have identified the following as our critical accounting policies:

Derivative Financial Instruments

We evaluate our financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging.” For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value on the grant date and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the condensed statements of operations. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. The determination of the fair value of the warrant liabilities may be subject to change as more current information becomes available and accordingly the actual results could differ significantly. Derivative warrant liabilities are classified as non-current liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.

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 Topic 480. Class A ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A ordinary shares (including Class A 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 the Company’s control) is classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A 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 the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, 4,542,733 and 27,600,000 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ deficit section of the Company’s condensed balance sheets as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. This method would view the end of the reporting period as if it were also the redemption date for the security. Effective with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company recognized the remeasurement from initial book value to redemption amount, which resulted in charges against additional paid-in capital (to the extent available) and accumulated deficit.

Offering Costs Associated with Initial Public Offering

Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs 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 derivative warrant liabilities were expensed as incurred and presented as non-operating expenses in the condensed statements of operations. Offering costs associated with the Class A ordinary shares were charged against the carrying value of Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company classifies deferred underwriting commissions as non-current liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.

Net Income per Ordinary Share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” The Company has two classes of shares, which are referred to as Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income per ordinary share is calculated by dividing the net income by the weighted average shares of ordinary shares outstanding for the respective period.

The calculation of diluted net income does not consider the effect of the warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering (including the consummation of the over-allotment) and the Private Placement Warrants to purchase an aggregate of 39,420,000 Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted income (loss) per share, because their exercise is contingent upon future events and their inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. The Company has considered the effect of Class B ordinary shares that were excluded from the weighted average number of basic shares outstanding as they were contingent on the exercise of over-allotment option by the underwriters. Since the contingency was satisfied, the Company has included these shares in the weighted average number as of the beginning of the period to determine the dilutive impact of these shares. Remeasurement of the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from net income per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-03, ASC Subtopic 820 “Fair Value Measurement of Equity Securities Subject to Contractual Sale Restrictions”. The ASU amends ASC 820 to clarify that a contractual sales restriction is not considered in measuring an equity security at fair value and to introduce new disclosure requirements for equity securities subject to contractual sale restrictions that are measured at fair value. The ASU applies to both holders and issuers of equity and equity-linked securities measured at fair value. The amendments in this ASU are effective for us in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for both interim and annual financial statements that have not yet been issued or made available for issuance. We are still evaluating the impact of this pronouncement on the condensed financial statements.

Our management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our unaudited condensed financial statements.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of September 30, 2023, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K and did not have any commitments or contractual obligations.

JOBS Act

On April 5, 2012, the JOBS Act was signed into law. The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We will qualify as an “emerging growth company” and under the JOBS Act will be allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As such, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates.

Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an “emerging growth company,” we choose to rely on such exemptions we may not be required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis) and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and

performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of our Initial Public Offering or until we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” whichever is earlier.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2023, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer has concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2023.

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2023 covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
