The period from June 21, 2022, through October 21, 2022, is the “Guaranteed Payment Period.”
If the Company elects to further extend the Extended Date beyond October 21, 2022 in accordance with the Extension Proposal and upon the completion of the Guaranteed Payment Period, the holders of Class A ordinary shares who do not redeem their shares in connection with the Extension Proposal will be provided with the opportunity to redeem their shares on or about October 21, 2022.
Funding of the Monthly Contribution is described in further detail in the Company’s Form 8K, filed with the SEC on June 10, 2022.
The Extension Amendment Proposal will be voted on by shareholders at the upcoming extraordinary general meeting of shareholders on June 15, 2022 (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”) and is described in further detail in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the “Proxy Statement”), filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on May 31, 2022.
