NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1-Description of Organization, Business Operations and Basis of Presentation

CC Neuberger Principal Holdings II (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on May 12, 2020. 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 (“Business Combination”). The Company may pursue a Business Combination in any industry or sector.

At March 31, 2022, the Company had not yet commenced operations. All activity for the period from May 12, 2020 (inception) through March 31, 2022 relates to the Company’s formation and its initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”), and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end. 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 on cash and investments from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering.

The Company’s sponsor is CC Neuberger Principal Holdings II Sponsor LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Sponsor”). The registration statement for the Initial Public Offering became effective on July 30, 2020. On August 4, 2020, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 82,800,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units, the “Public Shares”), including the issuance of 10,800,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $828.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $46.3 million, inclusive of approximately $29.0 million in deferred underwriting commissions (Note 6).

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 18,560,000 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, in a private placement to the Company’s Sponsor, generating gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $18.6 million (Note 4).

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, $828.0 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”), located in the United States, with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and invested in United States “government securities” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act, having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated 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.

The Company’s management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds of its Initial Public Offering and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are intended to be applied generally toward consummating a Business Combination. The Company’s initial Business Combination must be with one or more operating businesses or assets with a fair market value equal to at least 80% of the net assets held in the Trust Account (as defined below) (net of amounts disbursed to management for working capital purposes and excluding the amount of any deferred underwriting discount held in trust). 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 of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Company will provide its holders of its Public Shares (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 shareholder 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 in the Trust Account, calculated as of two business days prior to the consummation of the 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 6). These Public Shares were recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity” (“ASC 480”). In such case, the Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon such consummation of a Business Combination and a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required by applicable law or stock exchange listing requirements and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”), conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and file tender offer documents with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If, however, a shareholder approval of the transactions is required by applicable law or stock exchange listing requirement, or the Company decides to obtain shareholder approval for business or other 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 irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction or vote at all. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the holders of the Founder Shares prior to the Initial Public Offering (the “Initial Shareholders”) have agreed to vote their Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5) and any Public Shares purchased during or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of a Business Combination. In addition, the Initial Shareholders have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to their Founder Shares and Public Shares in connection with the completion of a Business Combination. In addition, the Company has agreed not to enter into a definitive agreement regarding an initial Business Combination without the prior consent of the Sponsor.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that a Public Shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from redeeming its shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% of the Class A ordinary shares sold in the Initial Public Offering, without the prior consent of the Company.

The Company’s Sponsor, executive officers, and directors will have agreed not to propose an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association that would affect the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide for the redemption of its Public Shares in connection with a Business Combination or to redeem 100% of its Public Shares if the Company does not complete a Business Combination, unless the Company provides the Public Shareholders with the opportunity to redeem their Class A ordinary shares in conjunction with any such amendment.

If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or August 4, 2022 (the “Combination Period”), the Company will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than 10 business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses and net of taxes paid or payable), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any) and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining shareholders and the Company’s board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), to the Company’s obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and in all cases subject to the other requirements of applicable law. The Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that, if the Company winds up for any other reason prior to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, the Company will follow the foregoing procedures with respect to the liquidation of the Trust Account as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than 10 business days thereafter, subject to applicable Cayman Islands law.

CC NEUBERGER PRINCIPAL HOLDINGS II

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

In connection with the redemption of 100% of the Company’s outstanding Public Shares for a portion of the funds held in the Trust Account, each holder will receive a full pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account, including interest (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses and net of taxes paid or payable).

The Initial Shareholders have agreed to waive their liquidation rights with respect to the Founder Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period. However, if the Initial Shareholders should 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 have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Company’s Public Shares. In 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 $10.00 per Public Share initially held in the Trust Account. In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed that it will be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a written letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement or business combination agreement, 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 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 prospective target business who executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) 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”). In the event that an executed waiver is deemed to be unenforceable against a third party, the Sponsor will not be responsible to the extent of any liability for such third-party claims. The Company will seek to reduce the possibility that the Sponsor will have to indemnify the Trust Account due to claims of creditors by endeavoring to have vendors, service providers (except the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm), 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.

Proposed Business Combination

On December 9, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), the Company, Vector Holding, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“New CCNB”), Vector Domestication Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of New CCNB (“Domestication Merger Sub”), Vector Merger Sub 1, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“G Merger Sub 1”), Vector Merger Sub 2, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“G Merger Sub 2”, and together with the Company, New CCNB, Domestication Merger Sub and G Merger Sub 1, each a “CCNB Party” and, collectively, the “CCNB Parties”), Griffey Global Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Griffey Global”), and solely for limited purposes expressly set forth therein, Griffey Investors, L.P., a Delaware limited liability company, (the “Partnership”), entered into a definitive business combination agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”).

The Business Combination Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby (the “Business Combination”) were approved by the board of directors of each of the Company and Griffey Global.

The Business Combination Agreement provides for the Business Combination, which includes, among other things, the consummation of the following transactions: (a) on the business day prior to the closing date, New CCNB will convert from a Delaware limited liability company to a Delaware corporation (the “Statutory Conversion”) with a certificate of incorporation which provides for two classes of common stock in a manner consistent with the articles of incorporation of the Company prior to the Statutory Conversion (the “New CCNB Pre-Closing Certificate of Incorporation”), (b) prior to the closing of the Business Combination (the “Closing”), on the closing date, the Company will merge with and into Domestication Merger Sub, with Domestication Merger Sub surviving (the “Domestication Merger”) as a direct subsidiary of New CCNB and New CCNB will continue as the public company with (i) each Class A ordinary share, par value $0.0001 (each, a “CCNB Class A Ordinary Share”), of the Company being converted into the right of the holder thereof to receive one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 (each, a “New CCNB Pre-Closing Class A Share”), of New CCNB,

(ii) each Class B ordinary share, par value $0.0001 of the Company being converted into the right of the holder thereof to receive one share of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 of New CCNB and (iii) each warrant of the Company ceasing to represent a right to acquire the Company Class A Ordinary Shares and instead representing a right to acquire New CCNB Pre-Closing Class A Shares, (c) on the Closing Date, at the Closing and prior to the PIPE Financing (as defined below) and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Forward Purchase Agreement (as defined below) and the Backstop Agreement (as defined below), if applicable, New CCNB will amend and restate the New CCNB Pre-Closing Certificate of Incorporation in the form of the New CCNB Certificate of Incorporation to provide for, among other things, Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “New CCNB Class A Common Shares”), and Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “New CCNB Class B Common Shares”), which New CCNB Class B Common Shares will be subject to stock price based vesting; (d) on the closing date, at the Closing and contingent upon the filing of the New CCNB Certificate of Incorporation, the transactions contemplated by the Sponsor Side Letter will be consummated, including the conversion of the New CCNB Pre-Closing Class B Common Shares into New CCNB Class A Common Shares and New CCNB Class B Common Shares; (e) on the closing date, at the Closing and prior to the Getty Mergers (as defined below), New CCNB will consummate the PIPE Financing (as defined below) and the transactions contemplated by the Forward Purchase Agreement (as defined below) and the Backstop Agreement (as defined below), if applicable, and (f) on the closing date at the Closing, (i) G Merger Sub 1 will merge with and into Griffey Global (the “First Getty Merger”), with Griffey Global surviving as a subsidiary of Domestication Merger Sub and an indirect subsidiary of New CCNB, and (ii) Griffey Global will merge with and into G Merger Sub 2 (the “Second Getty Merger” and together with the First Getty Merger, the “Getty Mergers”), with G Merger Sub 2 surviving as a direct subsidiary of Domestication Merger Sub and an indirect subsidiary of New CCNB (the “Final Surviving Company”). In connection with the Closing, New CCNB will change its name to “Getty Images Holdings, Inc.”, which will continue as the public company following the consummation of the Business Combination.

Consideration

Under the terms of the Business Combination Agreement, the aggregate consideration to be paid in the Business Combination is derived from an aggregate transaction equity value of approximately $2.9 billion, apportioned between cash and New CCNB Class A Common Shares, as more specifically set forth therein (and which account for the value of Griffey Globals’s vested options). In addition to the consideration to be paid at Closing, New CCNB will issue to equityholders of Griffey Global an aggregate of up to 65,000,000 New CCNB Class A Common Shares, issuable upon and subject to the occurrence of the applicable vesting events, as more specifically set forth therein.  Each option to purchase shares of Griffey Global (whether vested or unvested) will be converted into a comparable option to purchase New CCNB Class A Common Shares, pursuant to a market-based equity incentive plan prepared by CCNB and Griffey Global prior to the closing date.

In connection with the signing of the Business Combination Agreement, the Company and New CCNB entered into subscription agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with the Sponsor and Getty Investments, L.L.C, current equityholders of the Company or Griffey Global, respectively (collectively, the “PIPE Investors”).

Pursuant to the Subscription Agreements, the PIPE Investors agreed to subscribe for and purchase, and the Company and New CCNB agreed to issue and sell to such investors, on the closing date, an aggregate of 15,000,000 New CCNB Class A Common Shares for a purchase price of $10.00 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $150,000,000 (the “PIPE Financing”).

The closing of the PIPE Financing is contingent upon, among other things, the substantially concurrent consummation of the Business Combination. The Subscription Agreements provide that New CCNB will grant the PIPE Investors in the PIPE Financing certain customary registration rights.

Forward Purchase Agreement and Backstop Agreement

In connection with the signing of the Business Combination Agreement, New CCNB, the Company, and NBOKS entered into a side letter to (a) that certain Forward Purchase Agreement (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, NBOKS confirmed the allocation to the Company of $200,000,000 under the Forward Purchase Agreement and its agreement to, at Closing, subscribe for 20,000,000 New CCNB Class A Common Shares, and 3,750,000 Forward Purchase Warrants (as defined therein) and (b) certain Backstop Facility Agreement (the “Backstop Agreement”) whereby NBOKS agreed to, subject to the availability of capital it has committed to all special purpose acquisition companies sponsored by CC Capital Partners, LLC and NBOKS on a first

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. 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 months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022. The condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company include the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed by the Company with the SEC on March 1, 2022.

Risk and Uncertainties

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (“WHO”) announced a global health emergency because of a new strain of coronavirus (the “COVID-19 outbreak”). In March 2020, the WHO classified the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic, based on the rapid increase in exposure globally. The full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Company’s results of operations, financial position and cash flows will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the outbreak and related advisories and restrictions. These developments and the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the financial markets and the overall economy are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted. If the financial markets and/or the overall economy are impacted for an extended period, the Company’s results of operations, financial position and cash flows may be materially adversely affected. Additionally, the Company’s ability to complete an Initial Business Combination may be materially adversely affected due to significant governmental measures being implemented to contain the COVID-19 outbreak or treat its impact, including travel restrictions, the shutdown of businesses and quarantines, among others, which may limit the Company’s ability to have meetings with potential investors or affect the ability of a potential target company’s personnel, vendors and service providers to negotiate and consummate an Initial Business Combination in a timely manner. The Company’s ability to consummate an Initial Business Combination may also be dependent on the ability to raise additional equity and debt financing, which may be impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak and the resulting market downturn.

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 financial statements and 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 financial statements.

Going Concern

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $220,000 in its operating bank account and negative working capital of approximately $202,000.

Prior to the completion of the Initial Public Offering, the Company’s liquidity needs had been satisfied through the payment of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover for certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares, and a loan of approximately $267,000 pursuant to the Note issued to the Sponsor (Note 5). Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, the Company’s liquidity needs have been satisfied with the proceeds from the consummation of the

9

Table of Contents

CC NEUBERGER PRINCIPAL HOLDINGS II

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. The Company fully repaid the Note on September 10, 2020. In addition, in order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, provide the Company Working Capital Loans (see Note 5). On January 7, 2022, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note in the principal amount of $800,000 to the Sponsor as a Working Capital Loan (see Note 5).

In connection with the Company's assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 205-40, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern,” management has determined that if the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination by August 4, 2022, then the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating. The date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution as well as the Company's working capital deficit raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be required to liquidate after August 4, 2022. The Company intends to complete a Business Combination before the mandatory liquidation date. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to consummate any business combination by August 4, 2022.

Note 2-Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Use of Estimates

The preparation of these financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting periods. Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due 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.

Investment Securities Held in Trust Account

The Company’s portfolio of investments is comprised solely 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, or a combination thereof. The Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are classified as trading securities. Trading securities are presented on the condensed consolidated 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 unrealized gain on investments held in Trust Account in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information, other than for investments in open-ended money market funds with published daily net asset values (“NAV”), in which case the Company uses NAV as a practical expedient to fair value. The NAV on these investments is typically held constant at $1.00 per unit.

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 Depository Insurance Corporation coverage of $250,000, and investments held in Trust Account. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.

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,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the condensed consolidated balance sheets, except for derivative liabilities (see Note 10).

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. U.S. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value.

The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:

Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

In some circumstances, the inputs used to measure fair value might be categorized within different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In those instances, the fair value measurement is categorized in its entirety in the fair value hierarchy based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Working Capital Loan

The Company has elected the fair value option to account for its working capital loan with its Sponsor as defined and more fully described in Note 5. As a result of applying the fair value option, the Company records each draw at fair value with a gain or loss recognized at issuance, and subsequent changes in the fair value of the conversion feature are recorded as change in value of working capital loan reflected in change in fair value of derivative liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations. The fair value of the conversion feature 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.

The working capital loan is convertible into warrants upon a successful business combination.  In the event of an unsuccessful business combination, the working capital loan is forgiven and expires worthless

Non-current Accounts Payable and Accrued Expenses

Non-current accounts payable and accrued expenses includes fees incurred with certain vendors where settlement or liquidation of amounts due is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.

Derivative Liabilities

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

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to ASC 480 and FASB ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (“ASC 815”). The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

The Company issued an aggregate of 20,700,000 redeemable warrants associated with Units issued to investors in our Initial Public Offering and the underwriters’ exercise of their overallotment option (the “Public Warrants”) and issued 18,560,000 Private Placement Warrants. In addition, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement in connection with the Initial Public Offering which provides for the purchase by an affiliate of the Sponsor of up to $200,000,000 of units, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share and three-sixteenths of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, for a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of our initial Business Combination (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”). All of the outstanding warrants and the Forward Purchase Agreement are recognized as derivative assets and liabilities in accordance with ASC 815.

In the event of an unsuccessful business combination, the warrants will expire worthless, with no cash settlement and the change in fair value adjusted through earnings.

For equity-linked contracts that are classified as assets or liabilities, the Company recognizes the fair value of the equity-linked contracts at each balance sheet date and records the change in the consolidated statements of operations as a (gain) loss on change in fair value of derivative liabilities. The Public Warrants were initially valued using a binomial lattice pricing model when the Public Warrants were not yet trading and did not have observable pricing, and are now valued based on public market quoted prices. The Private Placement Warrants are valued using a binomial lattice pricing model when the warrants are subject to the make-whole table, or otherwise are valued using a Black-Scholes pricing model. The Forward Purchase Agreement is valued utilizing observable market prices for public shares and warrants, relative to the present value of contractual cash proceeds, each adjusted for the probability of executing a successful business combination. The assumptions used in preparing these models include estimates such as volatility, contractual terms, discount rates, dividend rate, expiration dates and risk-free rates.

The estimates used to calculate the fair value of the Company’s derivative assets and liabilities change at each balance sheet date based on the value of the Company’s stock price and other assumptions described above. If these assumptions change or there is significant volatility in the Company’s stock price or interest rates, the fair value calculated from one balance sheet period to the next could be materially different.

Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering

Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting discounts and other costs incurred that were directly related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs are 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 liabilities are expensed as incurred, presented as non-operating expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. Offering costs associated with issuance of the Class A ordinary shares were charged against the carrying value of the 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 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) are 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, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 82,800,000 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Table of Contents

CC NEUBERGER PRINCIPAL HOLDINGS II

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Immediately upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company recognized the accretion from initial book value to redemption amount. The change in the carrying value of Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption resulted in charges against additional paid-in capital and accumulated deficit.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable common stock to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable common stock are affected by charges against additional paid in capital and accumulated deficit.

Income Taxes

FASB ASC Topic 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 March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The Company’s management determined that the Cayman Islands is the Company’s only major tax jurisdiction. 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 March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception.

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 unaudited condensed consolidated 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.

Net Income (Loss) Per Ordinary Share

The Company has two classes of shares, Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income (loss) per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the periods. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 39,260,000, of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted net income (loss) per share, because their exercise is contingent upon future events and inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. As a result, diluted net income (loss) per share is the same as basic net income (loss) per share for the periods presented. Accretion associated with the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Note 3-Initial Public Offering

On August 4, 2020, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 82,800,000 Units, including the issuance of 10,800,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $828.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $46.3 million, inclusive of approximately $29.0 million in deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred underwriting commissions 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.

Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-fourth of one Public Warrant. Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 7).

Note 4-Private Placement

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the Private Placement of 18,560,000 Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, to the Company’s Sponsor, generating gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $18.6 million.

Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one whole Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. Certain proceeds from the Private Placement Warrants were 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 and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees.

The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors have agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Private Placement Warrants until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination.

Note 5-Related Party Transactions

Founder Shares

On May 19, 2020, the Company issued 7,875,000 Class B ordinary shares to the Sponsor (the “Founder Shares”) in exchange for a capital contribution of $25,000. On July 15, 2020, the Company effected a share capitalization resulting in the Sponsor holding an aggregate of 22,250,000 Founder Shares. Subsequent to this share capitalization, in July 2020, the Sponsor transferred 40,000 Founder Shares to each of Joel Alsfine and James Quella, the independent director nominees. On July 30, 2020, the Company effected a share capitalization resulting in the Initial Shareholders holding an aggregate of 25,700,000 Founder Shares, including up to 2,700,000 shares were subject to forfeiture to the Company for no consideration to the extent that the option to purchase additional units is not exercised in full or in part, so that the number of Founder Shares will equal 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering plus the number of Class A ordinary shares to be sold pursuant to any forward purchase agreement entered into in connection with the Initial Public Offering (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”). All shares and the associated amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share capitalizations. On August 4, 2020, the underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment option; thus, no Founder Shares are currently subject to forfeiture. On June 8, 2021, the Sponsor transferred 40,000 Founder Shares to Jonathan Gear, a newly appointed independent director.

The Initial Shareholders have agreed not to transfer, assign or sell, subject to certain limited exceptions, any of their Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of: (i) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (ii) subsequent to the initial Business Combination (x) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property or (y) if the closing price of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub-divisions, share capitalizations, 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. Any permitted transferees will be subject to the same restrictions and other agreements of the Initial Shareholders with respect to any Founder Shares.

Related Party Loans

On May 19, 2020, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company up to $300,000 to be used for the payment of costs related to the Initial Public Offering pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). The Note was non-interest bearing, unsecured and due upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. As of August 4, 2020, the Company borrowed approximately $267,000 under the Note. The Company fully repaid the Note on September 10, 2020.

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 may be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $2.5 million of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. As of March 31, 2022, $800,000 was drawn on the Working Capital Loan, presented at its fair value of approximately $1.8 million on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet. The Company received proceeds of $240,000 and the remaining $560,000 was used for business combination related expenses, paid by the Sponsor on behalf of the Company. As of December 31, 2021, there were no amounts outstanding on the Working Capital Loan.

Administrative Support Agreement

Commencing on the effective date of the registration statement on Form S-1 related to the Initial Public Offering through the earlier of consummation of the initial Business Combination and the Company’s liquidation, the Company reimburses the Sponsor for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to the Company in the amount of $20,000 per month. The Company incurred approximately $60,000 and $0 in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, and $400,000 and $340,000 is included in accrued expenses – related party in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Forward Purchase Arrangement

In connection with the consummation of the Public Offering, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”) with Neuberger Berman Opportunistic Capital Solutions Master Fund LP (“NBOKS”), a member of our sponsor, which will provide for the purchase of up to $200,000,000 of units, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share and three-sixteenths of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, for a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of our initial business combination. The Forward Purchase Agreement will allow NBOKS to be excused from its purchase obligation in connection with a specific business combination if NBOKS does not have sufficient committed capital allocated to the Forward Purchase Agreement to fulfill its funding obligations under such forward purchase agreement in respect of such business combination. Following the consummation of this offering and prior to an initial business combination, NBOKS intends to raise additional committed capital such that the condition described in the preceding sentence is met, but there can be no assurance that additional capital will be available. The obligations under the Forward Purchase Agreement will not depend on whether any Class A ordinary shares are redeemed by our public shareholder.

upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination. 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 prospectus to purchase up to 10,800,000 additional Units at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On August 4, 2020, the underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment option.

The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $16.6 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the underwriters are entitled to a deferred underwriting commission of $0.35 per unit, or approximately $29.0 million in the aggregate. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Deferred Legal Fees

The Company entered into an engagement letter to obtain legal advisory services, pursuant to which the Company’s legal counsel agreed to defer their fees until the closing of the initial Business Combination. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company recorded an aggregate of $5.0 million and $3.9 million, respectively, in connection with such arrangement non-current accounts payable and accrued expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Class A Ordinary Shares — The Company is authorized to issue 500,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 82,800,000 Class A ordinary shares issued or outstanding. All Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption have been classified as temporary equity (see Note 7).

Class B Ordinary Shares — The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. On May 19, 2020, 7,875,000 Class B ordinary shares were issued to the Sponsor. On July 15, 2020, the Company effected a share capitalization resulting in the Sponsor holding an aggregate of 22,250,000 Class B ordinary shares. Subsequent to this share capitalization, in July 2020, the Sponsor transferred 40,000 Class B ordinary shares to each of Joel Alsfine and James Quella, the independent director nominees. On July 30, 2020, the Company effected a share capitalization resulting in the Initial Shareholders holding an aggregate of 25,700,000 Class B ordinary shares. All shares and the associated amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share capitalizations. Of the 25,700,000 Class B ordinary shares, an aggregate of up to 2,700,000 shares were subject to forfeiture to the Company for no consideration to the extent that the option to purchase additional units is not exercised in full or in part, so that the number of Founder Shares will equal 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering plus the number of Class A ordinary shares to be sold pursuant to any Forward Purchase Agreement. On August 4, 2020, the underwriters fully exercised the over-allotment option; thus, no Class B ordinary shares are currently subject to forfeiture. On June 8, 2021, the Sponsor transferred 40,000 Founder Shares to Jonathan Gear, a newly appointed independent director. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 25,700,000 Class B ordinary shares issued or outstanding.

Holders of the Company’s Class B ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares concurrently with or immediately following the consummation of the initial Business Combination, or earlier at the option of the holder thereof, on a one-for-one basis. However, if additional Class A ordinary shares or any other equity-linked securities (as defined below) are issued or deemed issued in connection with the initial Business Combination, the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an as converted basis, 20% of the sum of (i) the total number of ordinary shares outstanding upon completion of the Initial Public Offering plus (ii) the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued, or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued, by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of the initial Business Combination (including any Class A ordinary shares to be sold pursuant to a Forward Purchase Agreement, but not any warrants sold pursuant to a Forward Purchase Agreement), excluding any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination and any Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor upon conversion of Working Capital Loans, provided that such conversion of Class B ordinary shares will never occur on a less than one-for-one basis. Any conversion of Class B ordinary shares described herein will take effect as a redemption of Class B ordinary shares and an issuance of Class A ordinary shares as a matter of Cayman Islands law.

Preference Shares — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 preference shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no preference shares issued or 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 on the later of (a) 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination and (b) 12 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering; provided in each case 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 warrants on a cashless basis under certain circumstances). The Company has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 20 business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination, to cause the same to become effective within 60 business days following the closing of the initial Business Combination, and to maintain a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares until the warrants expire or are redeemed, as specified in the warrant agreement. If a registration statement covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the 60th business day after the closing of the initial Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company has failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. Notwithstanding the above, 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 they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of 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 elect, it will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, and in the event the Company does not so elect, it will use commercially reasonable 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 Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that (1) the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions, (2) the Private Placement Warrants will be non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or such purchasers’ permitted transferees, (3) the Sponsor, or its permitted transferees, has the option to exercise the Private Placement Warrants on a cashless basis and (4) any amendment to the terms of the private placement warrants or any provision of the warrant agreement with respect to the Private Placement Warrants will require a vote of holders of at least 50% of the number of the then outstanding Private Placement Warrants. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the Sponsor or its permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company in all redemption scenarios and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

The Company may redeem the Public Warrants (but not 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 for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub-divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like).

If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption as described above, 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.

Commencing 90 days after the Public Warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding Public Warrants (but not the Private Placement Warrants):

in whole and not in part;
at $0.10 per warrant provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares determined by reference to the agreed table based on the redemption date and the “fair market value” of the Class A ordinary shares (as defined below);
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 $10.00 per share (as adjusted for share sub-divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) on the trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

The “fair market value” of the Class A ordinary shares shall mean the average last reported sale price of the Class A ordinary shares for the 10 trading days ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of warrants.

The exercise price and number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances including in the event of a share capitalization, or recapitalization, reorganization, merger or consolidation. However, the warrants will not be adjusted for issuance of Class A ordinary shares at a price below its exercise price. Additionally, in no event will the Company be required to net cash settle the warrants shares. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.

Forward purchase agreement

The Forward Purchase Agreement provides for the purchase of up to $200,000,000 of units, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share (the “Forward Purchase Shares”) and three-sixteenths of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share (the “Forward Purchase Warrants”), for a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of the initial Business Combination.

In addition, it excludes $0 and $19,960 in cash at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Level 1 assets include investments in U.S. Treasury securities. The Company uses inputs such as actual trade data, benchmark yields, quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources to determine the fair value of its investments.

Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting period. There were no transfers between levels for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

The fair value of the Public Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants were initially measured at fair value using a binomial / lattice model for the Public Warrants and a Black-Scholes option pricing model for the Private Placement Warrants. The fair value of Public Warrants have been subsequently measured based on the listed market price of such warrants, a Level 1 measurement, since September 2020. The Company’s Private Placement Warrants are valued using a binomial lattice pricing model when the warrants are subject to the make-whole table, or otherwise are valued using a Black-Scholes pricing model. The Company’s working capital loan is valued using a Monte Carlo simulation analysis on the convertible feature and a present value of the host contract. The company’s Forward Purchase Agreement is valued utilizing observable market prices for public shares and warrants, relative to the present value of contractual cash proceeds, each adjusted for the probability of executing a successful business combination. For the three months ended

The valuation methodologies for the Private Placement Warrants, Working Capital Loan and Forward Purchase Agreement included in derivative liabilities include certain significant unobservable inputs, resulting in such valuations to be classified as Level 3 in the fair value measurement hierarchy. The methodologies include a probability of a successful business combination, which was originally determined to be 80% as of December 31, 2020 but was increased to 90% as of December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022. The warrant valuation models also include expected volatility, which differ between public and private placement warrants and can vary further depending on where the Company stands in identifying a business combination target. The fair value of Public Warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering have been measured based on the listed market price of such warrants, a Level 1 measurement, since September 2020. For public warrants and when such warrants are not yet trading and we do not have observed pricing in public markets, we assume a volatility based on research on SPAC warrants and the implied volatilities shortly after they start trading. Prior to the announcement of a proposed business combination, the Company assumed a volatility for the Private Placement Warrants based on the median volatility of the Russell 3000 constituents. After the announcement of a proposed business combination, the valuation estimate assumes an equal weighting of volatility based on (a) the volatility of the target company's peer group and (b) the implied volatility of the Public Warrants issued by the Company.

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

References to the “Company,” “our,” “us” or “we” refer to CC Neuberger Principal Holdings II. The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated 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, and Section 21E 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. Such statements include, but are not limited to, possible business combinations and the financing thereof, and related matters, as well as all other statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 10-Q. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on May 12, 2020 as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”) that we have not yet selected. We may pursue a Business Combination in any industry or sector. Our sponsor is CC Neuberger Principal Holdings II Sponsor LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (our “Sponsor”).

Our registration statement for our initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) was declared effective on July 30, 2020. On August 4, 2020, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 82,800,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units, the “Public Shares”), including the issuance of 10,800,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $828.0 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $46.3 million, inclusive of approximately $29.0 million in deferred underwriting commissions.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 18,560,000 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, in a private placement to our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $18.6 million.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, $828.0 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants were placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”), located in the United States, with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee, and invested in United States “government securities” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act, having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated 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.

23

If we are unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, or August 4, 2022, we will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than 10 business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses and net of taxes paid or payable), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any) and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining shareholders and our board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), to our obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and in all cases subject to the other requirements of applicable law. Our Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that, if we wind up for any other reason prior to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, we will follow the foregoing procedures with respect to the liquidation of the Trust Account as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than 10 business days thereafter, subject to applicable Cayman Islands law.

Recent Developments

On December 9, 2021, the Company, New CCNB, Domestication Merger Sub, G Merger Sub 1, G Merger Sub 2, Getty Images, and solely for limited purposes expressly set forth therein, the Partnership, entered into the Business Combination Agreement. The Business Combination Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and covenants by the parties thereto and the closing is subject to certain conditions as further described therein.

Results of Operations

Our entire activity since inception through March 31, 2022 related to our formation, the preparation for the Initial Public Offering, and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. We will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of our initial Business Combination. We will generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents. We expect to incur increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses. Additionally, we recognize non-cash gains and losses within other income (expense) related to changes in recurring fair value measurement of our warrant liabilities, working capital loan and forward purchase agreements at each reporting period.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we had net income of approximately $17.0 million, which consisted of a gain of $19.1 million from the change in fair value of the derivative liabilities and approximately $207,000 on investments held in Trust Account, partially offset by approximately $2.3 million in general and administrative costs.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had net income of approximately $27.4 million, which consisted of $27.5 million from the change in fair value of derivative liabilities and approximately $140,000 on investments held in Trust Account, partially offset by approximately $293,000 in general and administrative costs.

Going Concern

As of March 31, 2022, we had approximately $220,000 in our operating bank account and negative working capital of approximately $202,000.

Prior to the completion of the Initial Public Offering, our liquidity needs had been satisfied through the payment of $25,000 from our Sponsor to cover for certain expenses on our behalf in exchange for the issuance of the founder shares, and a loan of approximately $267,000 pursuant to a note agreement issued to our Sponsor (the “Note”). Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, our liquidity needs have been satisfied with the proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. We fully repaid the Note on September 10, 2020. In addition, in order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, provide us Working Capital Loans. On January 7, 2022, we issued an unsecured promissory note in the principal amount of $800,000 to the Sponsor as a Working Capital Loan.

24

In connection with our assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 205-40, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern,” we have determined that if the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination by August 4, 2022, then the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating. The date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should we be required to liquidate after August 4, 2022. We intend to complete a Business Combination before the mandatory liquidation date. However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to consummate any business combination by August 4, 2022.

We continue to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and has concluded that the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Contractual Obligations

Registration and Shareholder Rights

The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that we register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination. 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 prospectus to purchase up to 10,800,000 additional Units at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On August 4, 2020, we closed the issuance of such additional Units pursuant to the underwriters’ full exercise of the over-allotment option.

The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $16.6 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, the underwriters are entitled to a deferred underwriting commission of $0.35 per unit, or approximately $29.0 million in the aggregate. The deferred underwriting commission 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.

Administrative Support Agreement

Commencing on the effective date of the registration statement on Form S-1 related to the Initial Public Offering through the earlier of consummation of the initial Business Combination and the Company’s liquidation, we reimburse the Sponsor for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to us in the amount of $20,000 per month. We incurred approximately $60,000 and $0 in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and accrued $400,000 and $340,000, in accrued expenses – related party, related to the administrative services agreement at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Forward Purchase Arrangement

In connection with the consummation of the Public Offering, the Company entered into the Forward Purchase Agreement with Neuberger Berman Opportunistic Capital Solutions Master Fund LP (“NBOKS”), a member of our sponsor, which will provide for the purchase of up to $200,000,000 of units, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share and three-sixteenths of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, for a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of our initial business combination. The obligations under the Forward Purchase Agreement will not depend on whether any Class A ordinary shares are redeemed by our public shareholder.

25

Deferred Legal Fees

The Company entered into an engagement letter to obtain legal advisory services, pursuant to which the Company’s legal counsel agreed to defer their fees until the closing of the initial Business Combination. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company recorded an aggregate of $5.0 million and $3.9 million, respectively, in connection with such arrangement as non-current accounts payable and accrued expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Critical Accounting Policies

This management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of our 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 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. The Company has identified the following as its critical accounting policies:

Working Capital Loan

We have elected the fair value option to account for our Working Capital Loan with our Sponsor. As a result of applying the fair value option of the conversion feature, we record each draw at 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 Loan on the unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations. The fair value of the conversion feature 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.

Derivative Liabilities

We do not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market or foreign currency risks. We evaluate all of our financial instruments, including issued stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity” (“ASC 480”) and FASB ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (“ASC 815”).The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

We issued an aggregate of 20,700,000 warrants associated with Units issued to investors in our Initial Public Offering and the underwriters’ exercise of their overallotment option (the “Public Warrants”) and we issued 18,560,000 Private Placement Warrants. In addition, we entered into a forward purchase agreement in connection with the Initial Public Offering which provides for an affiliate of our Sponsor to purchase of up to $200,000,000 of units, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share and three-sixteenths of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, for a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of our initial Business Combination (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”). All of our outstanding warrants and the Forward Purchase Agreement are recognized as derivative assets and liabilities in accordance with ASC 815.

For equity-linked contracts that are classified as assets or liabilities, we record the fair value of the equity-linked contracts at each balance sheet date and record the change in the statements of operations as a (gain) loss on change in fair value of derivative liabilities. Our Public Warrants were initially valued using a binomial lattice pricing model when the Public Warrants were not yet trading and did not have observable pricing and are now valued based on public market quoted prices. Our Private Placement Warrants are valued using a binomial lattice pricing model when the warrants are subject to the make-whole table, or otherwise are valued using a Black-Scholes pricing model. Our Forward Purchase Agreement is valued utilizing observable market prices for public shares and warrants, relative to the present value of contractual cash proceeds, each adjusted for the probability of executing a successful business combination. The

26

assumptions used in preparing these models include estimates such as volatility, contractual terms, discount rates, dividend rate, expiration dates and risk-free rates.

The estimates used to calculate the fair value of our derivative assets and liabilities change at each balance sheet date based on our stock price and other assumptions described above. If our assumptions change or we experience significant volatility in our stock price or interest rates, the fair value calculated from one balance sheet period to the next could be materially different.

Investments Held in Trust Account

The Company’s portfolio of investments is comprised solely 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, or a combination thereof. The Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are classified as trading securities. Trading securities are presented on the condensed consolidated 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 net gain on investments held in Trust Account in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information, other than for investments in open-ended money market funds with published daily net asset values (“NAV”), in which case the Company uses NAV as a practical expedient to fair value. The NAV on these investments is typically held constant at $1.00 per unit.

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

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) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A ordinary shares are classified as shareholders’ equity. Our Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of our control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 82,800,000 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption are presented as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Effective with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company recognized the accretion 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 (Loss) Per Ordinary Share

We have two classes of shares: Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income (loss) per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the periods. We have not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 39,260,000, of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted net income (loss) per share, because their exercise is contingent upon future events and their inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. As a result, diluted net income (loss) per share is the same as basic net income (loss) per share for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. Accretion associated with the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

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

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of March 31, 2022, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

As of March 31, 2022, we were not subject to any market or interest rate risk. Following the consummation of our Initial Public Offering, the net proceeds of our Initial Public Offering, including amounts in the Trust Account, have been invested in certain U.S. government securities with a maturity of 185 days or less or in certain money market funds that invest solely in U.S. treasuries. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2022, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer has concluded that during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2022, because of a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Specifically, the Company’s management has concluded that our control around the interpretation and accounting for certain equity and equity-linked financial instruments issued by the Company was not effectively designed or maintained. This material weakness resulted in the restatement of the Company’s balance sheet as of August 4, 2020, its annual financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2020 and its interim financial statements for the quarters ended September 30, 2020, March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021. Additionally, this material weakness could result in a misstatement of the warrant liability, Class A ordinary shares and related accounts and disclosures that would result in a material misstatement of the financial statements that would not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

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 chief executive officer and chief 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 March 31, 2022 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 except for the below:

On May 20, 2021, the Company, in consultation with its audit committee of the Company's board of directors (the “Audit Committee”), concluded that its previously issued financial statements for the periods beginning with the period from May 12, 2020 through December 31, 2020, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and the period from May 12, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (collectively, the “Affected Periods”) should be restated because of a misapplication in the guidance around accounting for certain of the Company's outstanding warrants to purchase ordinary shares (the “Warrants”) and should no longer be relied upon. The Warrants were issued in connection with the Company's Initial Public Offering of 82,800,000 Units consisting of 82,800,000 shares and 20,700,000 warrants. and the sale of 18,560,000 Private Placement warrants completed on August 4, 2020. Additionally in connection with the Initial Public Offering, the Company entered into a Forward Purchase Agreement with NBOKS, which provides for the purchase of up to $200,000,000 of units, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share and three-sixteenths of one warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, for a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, in a private placement to occur concurrently with the closing of the initial Business Combination. The forward purchase agreement also requires recognition as a derivative asset or liability at inception with changes in fair value reflected in earnings at each reporting date.

On December 2, 2021, the Company, in consultation with its Audit Committee, concluded that the Company's previously issued financial statements should be restated to report all Public Shares as temporary equity and modify its earnings per share calculation to allocate income and losses shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Historically, a portion of the Public Shares was classified as

28

permanent equity to maintain shareholders' equity greater than $5 million on the basis that the Company will not redeem its Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001, as described in the Company's amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter”). Pursuant to such re-evaluation, the Company's management has determined that the Public Shares include certain provisions that require classification of all of the Public Shares as temporary equity regardless of the net tangible assets redemption limitation contained in the Charter. The Company also clarified that the definition of net tangible assets includes both permanent equity and redeemable equity. In addition, in connection with the change in presentation for the Public Shares, the Company determined it should restate its earnings per share calculation to allocate income and losses shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. This presentation contemplates a Business Combination as the most likely outcome, in which case, both classes of shares share pro rata in the income and losses of the Company.

Our chief executive officer and chief financial officer performed additional accounting and financial analyses and other post-closing procedures including consulting with subject matter experts related to the accounting for certain equity and equity-linked financial instruments. The Company's management has expended, and will continue to expend, a substantial amount of effort and resources for the remediation and improvement of our internal control over financial reporting. While we have processes to properly identify and evaluate the appropriate accounting technical pronouncements and other literature for all significant or unusual transactions, we have expanded and will continue to improve these processes to ensure that the nuances of such transactions are effectively evaluated in the context of the increasingly complex accounting standards.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

None.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

Except as described below, there have been no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2021 as filed with the SEC on March 1, 2022.

Our search for a Business Combination, and any target business with which we may ultimately consummate a Business Combination, may be materially adversely affected by the geopolitical conditions resulting from the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia and subsequent sanctions against Russia, Belarus and related individuals and entities and the status of debt and equity markets, as well as protectionist legislation in our target markets.

United States and global markets are experiencing volatility and disruption following the escalation of geopolitical tensions and the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022. In response to such invasion, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) deployed additional military forces to eastern Europe, and the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have announced various sanctions and restrictive actions against Russia, Belarus and related individuals and entities, including the removal of certain financial institutions from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) payment system. Certain countries, including the United States, have also provided and may continue to provide military aid or other assistance to Ukraine during the ongoing military conflict, increasing geopolitical tensions with Russia. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the resulting measures that have been taken, and could be taken in the future, by NATO, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries have created global security concerns that could have a lasting impact on regional and global economies. Although the length and impact of the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine is highly unpredictable, the conflict could lead to market disruptions, including significant volatility in commodity prices, credit and capital markets, as well as supply chain interruptions. Additionally, Russian military actions and the resulting sanctions could adversely affect the global economy and financial markets and lead to instability and lack of liquidity in capital markets. In addition, the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia, and the impact of sanctions against Russia and the potential for retaliatory acts from Russia, could result in increased cyber-attacks against U.S. companies.

29

Any of the abovementioned factors, or any other negative impact on the global economy, capital markets or other geopolitical conditions resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and subsequent sanctions, could adversely affect our search for a Business Combination and any target business with which we may ultimately consummate a Business Combination. The extent and duration of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, resulting sanctions and any related market disruptions are impossible to predict, but could be substantial, particularly if current or new sanctions continue for an extended period of time or if geopolitical tensions result in expanded military operations on a global scale. Any such disruptions may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K. If these disruptions or other matters of global concern continue for an extensive period of time, our ability to consummate a Business Combination, or the operations of a target business with which we may ultimately consummate a Business Combination, may be materially adversely affected.

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds from Registered Securities

Unregistered Sales

On May 19, 2020, we issued 7,875,000 Founder Shares in exchange for a capital contribution of $25,000. On July 15, 2020, we effected a share capitalization resulting in our Sponsor holding an aggregate of 22,250,000 Founder Shares. Subsequent to this share capitalization, in July 2020, our Sponsor transferred 40,000 Founder Shares to each of Joel Alsfine and James Quella, our independent director nominees. On July 30, 2020, we effected a share capitalization resulting in the Initial Shareholders holding an aggregate of 25,700,000 Founder Shares. Such securities were issued in connection with the Company’s organization pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

On August 4, 2020, the Sponsor purchased 18,560,000 Private Placement Warrants, each exercisable to purchase one ordinary share at $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, at a price of $1.00 per warrant ($18,560,000 in the aggregate), in a private placement that closed simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering. This issuance was made pursuant to the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sales.

Use of Proceeds

On July 6, 2020, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 82,800,000 Units, which includes the full exercise by the underwriters of their over-allotment option in the amount of 10,800,000. The Units sold in the Initial Public Offering were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating total gross proceeds of $828,000,000. Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC acted as joint book-running managers for the Initial Public Offering and Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc., Loop Capital Markets LLC and Natixis Securities Americas LLC acted as co-managers for the Initial Public Offering. The securities in the offering were registered under the Securities Act on registration statements on Form S-1 (File Nos. 333-239875 and 333-240217). The registration statements became effective on July 30, 2020.

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, we incurred offering costs of approximately $46.3 million (including approximately $29.0 million in deferred underwriting commissions). Other incurred offering costs consisted principally preparation fees related to the Initial Public Offering. After deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions (excluding the deferred portion, which amount will be payable upon consummation of the Initial Business Combination, if consummated) and the Initial Public Offering expenses, $828.0 million of the net proceeds from our Initial Public Offering and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants (or $10.00 per Unit sold in the Initial Public Offering) was placed in the Trust Account. The net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants are held in the Trust Account and invested as described elsewhere in this Quarterly Report.

There has been no material change in the planned use of the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement as is described in the Company’s final prospectus related to the Initial Public Offering.
