CAUTIONARY STATEMENTREGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Statements regarding the expectations regarding the combined business are “forward-looking statements.” In addition, words such as “estimates,” “projected,” “expects,” “estimated,” “anticipates,” “forecasts,” “plans,” “intends,” “believes,” “seeks,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “future,” “propose,” “target,” “goal,” “objective,” “outlook” and variations of these words or similar expressions (or the negative versions of such words or expressions) are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, conditions or results, and involve a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors, many of which are outside the control of the parties, that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Important factors, among others, that may affect actual results or outcomes include:

the projected financial information, anticipated growth rate, and market opportunity of the Company;
the ability to maintain the listing of the Company’s Class A common stock and warrants on Nasdaq following the Business Combination;
our public securities’ potential liquidity and trading;
our success in retaining or recruiting partners and other employees, or changes related to, our officers, key employees or directors following the completion of the Business Combination;
members of our management team allocating their time to other businesses and potentially having conflicts of interest with our business;
factors relating to the business, operations and financial performance of the Company, including:
o
whether the Company realizes all or any of the anticipated benefits from the Business Combination;
o
whether the Business Combination results in any increased or unforeseen costs or has an impact on the Company’s ability to retain or compete for professional talent or investor capital;
o
global economic, business, market and geopolitical conditions, including the impact of public health crises, such as the ongoing rapid, worldwide spread of a novel strain of coronavirus and the pandemic caused thereby (collectively, “COVID-19”);
o
the Company’s dependence on and ability to retain working partners and other key employees;
o
the Company’s ability to successfully identify, recruit and develop talent;
o
risks associated with strategic transactions, such as joint ventures, strategic investments, acquisitions and dispositions;

2


 

 

o
the high volatility of the Company’s revenue as a result of its reliance on advisory fees that are largely contingent on the completion of events which may be out of its control;
o
the ability of the Company’s clients to pay for its services, including its restructuring clients;
o
the Company’s ability to appropriately manage conflicts of interest and tax and other regulatory factors relevant to the Company’s business, including actual, potential or perceived conflicts of interest and other factors that may damage its business and reputation;
o
strong competition from other financial advisory and investment banking firms;
o
potential impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets, which represent a significant portion of the Company’s assets;
o
the Company’s successful formulation and execution of its business and growth strategies;
o
