Disclaimer Forward-Looking Statements This Presentation includes certain statements in respect of the Potential Business Combination that may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the following words: “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “target,” “seek” or the negative or plural of these words, or other similar expressions that are predictions or indicate future events or prospects, but the absences of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including strategies or plans as they relate to the proposed transaction, are also forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of present or historical fact included in this Presentation, regarding the Potential Business Combination; Beard’s ability to consummate the transaction; the benefits of the transaction and the combined company’s future financial performance; the combined company’s strategy, future operations, estimated or forecasted financial position; estimated revenues and losses, projected costs, operational metrics, projections of market opportunity and market share; Suntuity’s unit economics; the sources and uses of cash of the Potential Business Combination; the anticipated capitalization and enterprise value of the combined company following the consummation of the Potential Business Combination; the projected technological developments of Suntuity and NewCo; future profitability prospects, plans and objectives of management; and others are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this Presentation, and on the current expectations of managements of Beard, Suntuity and NewCo and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions and are subject to material change. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of Suntuity, Beard and NewCo. Potential risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political and legal conditions; changes in the market for Suntuity’s services and technology, and expansion plans and opportunities; the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the Potential Business Combination, including the risk that any regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the Potential Business Combination or that the approval of the stockholders of Beard is not obtained; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Potential Business Combination; the amount of redemption requests made by Beard’s public stockholders; risk relating to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to Suntuity; the overall level of consumer demand for Suntuity’s services; general economic conditions and other factors affecting consumer confidence, preferences, and behavior; disruption and volatility in the global currency, capital, and credit markets; the financial strength of Suntuity’s customers and channel partners; Suntuity and NewCo’s expectations concerning relationships with strategic partners, suppliers, and other third parties; Suntuity’s ability to implement its business strategy; changes in governmental regulation, Suntuity’s exposure to litigation claims and other loss contingencies; the impact that global climate change trends may have on Suntuity and its partners, suppliers and customers; Suntuity’s ability to protect patents, trademarks and other intellectual property rights; Suntuity’s and NewCo’s ability to further attract, retain, and expand its customer base; Suntuity’s ability to attract and retain qualified employees; the ability to operate efficiently at scale; anticipated investments in capital resources and development, and the effect of these investments; market acceptance of Suntuity and NewCo’s offerings; shortages of skilled labor to install Suntuity’s solar systems and quality issues with its solar and related products; Suntuity’s dependence upon a limited number of suppliers for certain critical components, and finished products, including solar modules, microinverters, and storage solution; the reduction, modification, or elimination of government incentives favoring the solar industry, including incentive tax credits; proceeds of the Potential Business Combination and Suntuity’s expected cash runway; the combined company’s strategy, future operations, estimated financial position, revenues and losses, and plans and objectives of management; changes in tax laws and liabilities, tariffs, legal, regulatory, political and economic risks; and other potential effects of the Potential Business Combination on Beard, Suntuity and NewCo. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risks and uncertainties. More information on potential factors that could affect Beard’s, Suntuity’s or NewCo’s financial results is included in the section entitled “Summary Risk Factors” in this Presentation and those set forth in the section entitled “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in Beard’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on March 13, 2023, and in those documents that Beard or NewCo have filed, or will file, with the SEC, including the proxy statement/prospectus NewCo intends to file with the SEC in connection with the Potential Business Combination. If any of these risks materialize or our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties above are not exhaustive, and there may be additional risks that Beard, Suntuity and NewCo do not presently know or that Beard, Suntuity or NewCo currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect Beard’s, Suntuity’s and NewCo’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this Presentation. Beard, Suntuity and NewCo anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause Beard’s, Suntuity’s and NewCo’s assessments to change. However, while Beard, Suntuity and NewCo may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Beard, Suntuity and NewCo specifically disclaim any obligation to do so, except to the extent required by applicable law. You should, therefore, not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing the views of Beard, Suntuity or NewCo as of any date subsequent to the date of this Presentation. Trademarks Beard, Suntuity and NewCo own or have rights to various trademarks, service marks and trade names that they use in connection with the operation of their respective businesses. This Presentation also contains trademarks, service marks, trade names and copyrights of third parties, which are the property of their respective owners. The use or display of third parties’ trademarks, service marks, trade names or products in this Presentation is not intended to, and does not imply, a relationship with Beard, Suntuity or NewCo, an endorsement or sponsorship by or of Beard, Suntuity or NewCo, or a guarantee Suntuity, Beard or NewCo will work with or will continue to work with such third parties. Solely for convenience, the trademarks, service marks, trade names and copyrights referred to in this Presentation may appear without the TM, SM, ® or © symbols, but such references are not intended to indicate, in any way, that Beard, Suntuity or NewCo, or the any third-party will not assert, to the fullest extent under applicable law, their rights or the right of the applicable licensor to these trademarks, service marks, trade names and copyrights. 3
Disclaimer Financial Information; Non-GAAP Financial Measures Some of the historical financial information contained in this Presentation is unaudited and does not conform to Regulation S-X. This Presentation contains certain estimated preliminary financial results and key operating metrics for the year ended December 31, 2022. This information is preliminary and subject to change. As such, Suntuity’s actual results may differ from the estimated preliminary results presented herein. Accordingly, such information and data may not be included in, may be adjusted in or may be presented differently in any proxy statement/prospectus or registration statement to be filed by Beard or NewCo with the SEC. In addition, financial information and data contained in this Presentation have not been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures, and other measures that are calculated using such non-GAAP measures, are an addition to, and not a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenue, operating income, profit before tax, net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Suntuity’s management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Beard, Suntuity and NewCo believe these non-GAAP measures of financial results, including on a forward-looking basis, provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Suntuity’s financial condition and results of operations. Suntuity’s management uses these non-GAAP measures for trend analyses and for budgeting and planning purposes. Beard, Suntuity and NewCo believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating projected operating results and trends in and in comparing Suntuity’s financial measures with other similar companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of these non-GAAP measures and their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore Suntuity’s non-GAAP measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Use of Projections This Presentation contains projected financial or operational information with respect to Suntuity, cumulative installations, installation growth, internal install crew capability and internal service crew capability. Such projected financial or operational information constitutes forward-looking information, and is for illustrative purposes only and should not be relied upon as necessarily being indicative of future results. The projections, estimates and targets in this Presentation are forward-looking statements that are based on a number of economic, market and operational assumptions that are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond Beard’s, Suntuity’s and NewCo’s control. Notably, statements regarding Suntuity’s financial or operational forecasts are, without limitation, subject to material assumptions regarding Suntuity’s ability to successfully execute its growth strategy, Suntuity’s ability to maintain required strategic arrangements and customer relationships, among others. The assumptions and estimates underlying the projected, expected or target results are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, weather, economic, regulatory, competitive, technological, and other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in such projections, estimates and targets. Beard, Suntuity, and NewCo caution that current economic conditions render such assumptions, although believed reasonable at the time they were made, subject to greater uncertainty. See “Forward-Looking Statements” above. The inclusion of projections, estimates and targets in this Presentation should not be regarded as an indication that Beard, Suntuity, NewCo, or their representatives, considered or consider the financial or operational projections, estimates and targets to be a reliable prediction of future events. None of Beard’s, Suntuity’s or NewCo’s independent auditors have audited, reviewed, compiled or performed any procedures with respect to the projections for the purpose of their inclusion in this Presentation, and accordingly, none of them expressed an opinion or provided any other form of assurance with respect thereto for the purpose of this Presentation. Actual results may differ materially from the results contemplated by the financial or operational forecast information contained in this Presentation, and the inclusion of such information in this Presentation should not be regarded as a representation by any person that the results reflected in such forecasts will be achieved. Additional Information and Where to Find It In connection with the Potential Business Combination, NewCo, which will be the going-forward public company, intends to file a registration statement on Form S-4 (the “Registration Statement”) with the SEC, which will include a preliminary proxy statement of Beard and a preliminary prospectus of NewCo. Information in the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus will not be complete and may be changed. After the Registration Statement is declared effective, Beard will mail the definitive proxy statement/prospectus relating to the Potential Business Combination to Beard’s stockholder’s as of a record date to be established for voting on the Potential Business Combination. Beard’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read, once available, the definitive proxy statement/prospectus, in connection with Beard’s solicitation of proxies for its special meeting of stockholders to be held to approve, among other things, the Potential Business Combination, as well as other documents filed with the SEC, because these documents will contain important information about Beard, Suntuity and NewCo and the Potential Business Combination. Investors and security holders may also obtain a free copy of the Registration Statement, including the preliminary or definitive proxy statement/prospectus, once available, as well as other documents filed with the SEC regarding the Potential Business Combination and other documents filed with the SEC by Beard and NewCo, without charge, at the SEC’s website located at www.sec.gov.

The risks presented in such filings will be consistent with those that would be required for a public company in its SEC filings, including with respect to the Potential Business Combination and securities of Beard, Suntuity and NewCo, and may differ significantly from and be more extensive than those presented below. You should carefully consider these risks and uncertainties. If Suntuity cannot address any of the following risks and uncertainties effectively, or any other risks and difficulties that may arise in the future, its business financial condition or results of operations could be materially and adversely affected. Additional risks that Suntuity currently does not know about or that it currently believes to be immaterial may also impair its business, financial condition or results of operations. Risks Related toSuntuity’s Business • Suntuity’s results of operations are subject to significant fluctuations and are inherently unpredictable. • Changes in international trade policies, tariffs, or trade disputes could significantly and adversely affect Suntuity’s business, revenues, margins, results of operations, and cash flows. • The execution of Suntuity’s growth strategy is dependent upon the continued availability of third-party financing arrangements for its projects, including its residential finance programs, and is affected by general economic conditions and other factors, as well as market interest rates that may adversely affect the customers’ cost of financing or leasing Suntuity’s products and could reduce their profits and expected returns on investment in the products. • Our growth is dependent on our contractor network, and our failure to retain or replace existing contractors or to grow our contractor network or the number of our loans offered through our existing network could adversely impact our business. • A substantial portion of our revenue is generated through subcontracting relationships with other solar providers. Our failure to maintain these subcontracting relationships could adversely impact our business. • Our failure to secure new conditional deal acceptances may adversely affect our business operations and financial results. • Our projections are subject to significant risks, assumptions, estimates and uncertainties. As a result, our projected revenues, market share, expenses, profitability and any guidance we may publish from time to time may differ materially from our expectations. • Failure to effectively expand our sales and marketing capabilities could harm our ability to increase our customer base, maintain and grow our market share and achieve broader market acceptance. • Our future growth and success is highly correlated with, and thus dependent upon, the continuing rapid adoption of residential solar. • Suntuity is subject to risk related to its financing offerings directly to consumers. If its consumer underwriting and origination processes contain errors or incorrect inputs from consumers or third parties (such as credit bureaus), its reputation and relationships with capital providers and contractors could be harmed. Further, economic and other changes resulting in increases in default rates could increase Suntuity’s cost of capital. • The reduction, modification, or elimination of government incentives could cause Suntuity’s revenue to decline and harm its financial results. • Existing regulations and policies and changes to these regulations and policies may present technical, regulatory, and economic barriers to the purchase and use of solar power products, which may significantly reduce demand for Suntuity’s products and services. • A change in, or the expiration or elimination of, the solar investment tax credit could adversely affect Suntuity’s business, revenues, margins, results of operations, and cash flows. • As Suntuity’s sales to residential customers have grown, including through dealers and directly to consumers, it has increasingly become subject to substantial financial services and consumer protection laws and regulations. Any failure to comply with laws and regulations relating to interactions by Suntuity or third parties (such as its dealers and sub-servicers) with consumers or with licensing requirements applicable to Suntuity’s business could result in negative publicity, claims, investigations and litigation, and may adversely affect its financial performance. • As Suntuity’s sales to residential customers have grown, it has increasingly become subject to data protection and privacy laws. Any failure to comply with laws relating to data protection and privacy could result in negative publicity, claims, fines, investigations and litigation, and may adversely affect its financial performance. • Suntuity's business depends in part on use of technology and providing technology solutions and services to its customers. Suntuity may be subject to risk of infringement of third party intellectual property rights for which it cannot obtain a license. Further, Suntuity does not have a patent portfolio and may not be able to protect its rights in intellectual property, which could materially and adversely affect its business and financial performance. • Suntuity does not typically maintain long-term agreements with its customers and accordingly could lose customers without warning, which could adversely affect its business results. • The competitive environment in which Suntuity operates often requires it to undertake customer obligations or provide indemnifications, which may turn out to be costlier than anticipated and, in turn, materially and adversely affect its business, results of operations, cash flows, and financial condition. • Suntuity may be unable to generate sufficient cash flows or obtain access to external financing necessary to fund its operations and make adequate capital investments as planned due to the general economic environment, cost inflation, and/or the market pressure driving down the average selling prices of its solar power products. 27
Summary Risk Factors • Suntuity depends on a limited number of suppliers for certain critical components, and finished products, including solar modules, microinverters, and storage solutions. Any shortage, interruption or delay, deterioration of its relationships with, or price change from these suppliers could adversely affect its business, prevent Suntuity from delivering products to customers within required timeframes, and could in turn result in sales and installation delays, cancellations, penalty payments, or loss of market share. • If Suntuity has safety or quality issues with its solar and related products, its sales, profit, and cash flows could decrease and our relationships with its customers and reputation may be harmed. • Suntuity’s performance depends upon the continued contributions of its senior executives and key employees. Also, Suntuity’s business depends on the continuing ability to recruit, train and retain highly qualified employees in all areas of operations. If any of Suntuity’s key personnel do not continue in their present roles and are not adequately replaced, the company’s business operations could be materially adversely affected. In addition, a shortage of trained employee or other service providers could have an adverse impact on productivity and costs, which could adversely affect our operations. • Suntuity employs and engages employees and independent contractors in various states and is subject to a risk of potential claims by or on behalf of service providers from time to time, including claims relating to the employment laws of the states in which Suntuity has operations or service providers. Suntuity relies on the services of various individuals that it classifies as independent contractors, including individuals who perform certain outside sales-related services. Suntuity’s business may be adversely affected if claims are initiated that allege any misclassification with respect to employees or independent contractors, and the costs associated with defending, settling or resolving any such proceedings, and any liability determination, may materially impact the company. • Suntuity installs a significant portion of its residential solar power systems and is subject to risks associated with construction, safety, cost overruns, delays, and other contingencies any of which could have a material adverse effect on its business and financial results. • Suntuity has significant supplier relationships outside the United States, which may subject it to additional business risks, including logistical complexity and political instability. • Suntuity’s business could be adversely affected by seasonal trends, poor weather, and construction cycles. • Suntuity’s supply chain is subject to natural disasters and other events beyond its control, such as raw material, component, and labor shortages, global and regional shipping and logistics constraints, work stoppages, epidemics or pandemics, earthquakes, floods, fires, volcanic eruptions, power outages, or other natural disasters, and the physical effects of climate change, including changes in weather patterns, water availability and temperature levels. • Permits and approvals from public utilities or authorities having jurisdiction (“AHJs”) such as federal, state, local, or other regional department or fire chief, fire marshal, labor department, or building official, electrical inspector (among others) are typically required for most of Suntuity’s solar system installations. Any delays in obtaining such permits or approvals or modifications required in order to satisfy utilities or AHJs could adversely affect Suntuity’s business, revenues, margins, results of operations, and cash flows. • Suntuity relies on certain utility rate structures, such as net metering, to offer competitive pricing to customers, and changes to those policies, may significantly reduce demand for Suntuity’s services. • Climate change may have long-term impacts on Suntuity’s business, its industry, and the global economy, as result of changing weather patterns and increased frequency of severe weather events that could adversely impact demand for residential solar. • Suntuity’s business is concentrated in certain markets, putting it at risk of region-specific disruptions, including extreme weather events. • Compliance with environmental regulations can be expensive, and noncompliance with these regulations may result in adverse publicity and potentially significant monetary damages and fines. • Failure to comply with laws and regulations relating to Suntuity’s interactions with employees, contractors, or dealers, could result in negative publicity, claims, investigations, and litigation, and adversely affect financial performance. • Changes in tax laws or the interpretation thereof or the imposition of new or increased taxes or fees, or audits or other proceedings by taxing authorities, may increase Suntuity’s future tax liability and adversely affect Suntuity’s operations and cash flows. Risks Related to the Potential Business Combination • Beard and Suntuity may not be able to obtain the required stockholder approvals to consummate the Potential Business Combination. • The consummation of the Potential Business Combination is subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect NewCo or the expected benefits of the Potential Business Combination. • If the Potential Business Combination’s benefits do not meet the expectations of investors or securities analysts, the market price of Beard’s common stock or, following the consummation of the Potential Business Combination, NewCo’s common stock may decline. • Each of Beard, Suntuity and NewCo has incurred and will incur substantial costs in connection with the Potential Business Combination and related transactions, such as legal, accounting, consulting, and financial advisory fees, which will be paid out of the proceeds of the Potential Business Combination. • The ability of Beard’s public stockholders to exercise redemption rights with respect to a large number of shares could deplete Beard’s trust account prior to the Potential Business Combination and thereby diminish the amount of working capital of NewCo. • Subsequent to the consummation of the Potential Business Combination, NewCo may be required to take write-downs or write-offs and restructuring, impairment, or other charges that could have a significant negative effect on its financial condition, results of operations, and share price, which could cause you to lose some or all of your investment. Uncertainty about the effect of the Potential Business Combination may affect NewCo’s ability to retain key employees and integrate management structures and may materially impact the management, strategy, and results of its operation as a combined company. • The consummation of the Potential Business Combination is subject to a number of conditions, including with respect to antitrust filings and waiting periods and, if those conditions are not satisfied or waived, the Potential Business Combination agreement may be terminated in accordance with its terms and the Potential Business Combination may not be completed. • Legal proceedings in connection with the Potential Business Combination, the outcomes of which are uncertain, could delay or prevent the completion of the Potential Business Combination or have a material adverse effect on NewCo following the Potential Business Combination. 28
Summary Risk Factors • Beard, Suntuity and NewCo may be subject to business uncertainties and contractual restrictions while the Potential Business Combination is pending, and such uncertainty could have a material adverse effect on Beard’s, Suntuity’s and NewCo’s business, financial condition, and results of operations. • NewCo may not be able to realize the anticipated benefits of the Potential Business Combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition and the ability of NewCo to grow and manage growth profitably and retain its management and key employees. • The ability to successfully eﬀect the Potential Business Combination and NewCo’s ability to successfully operate the business thereafter will largely depend on the eﬀorts of certain key personnel of Suntuity, whom we expect to stay with NewCo following the Potential Business Combination. The loss of such key personnel could negatively impact the operations and ﬁnancial results of NewCo. • We may have to obtain consents or waivers in connection with the Potential Business Combination under certain agreements, including certain lease agreements. There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain such consents or waivers, and the failure to obtain any required consents or waivers could result in the termination of such agreements, which may have a materially adverse impact on our future business prospects, financial performance and results of operations. • NewCo could be subject to the 1% U.S. federal excise tax passed as part of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 on any redemptions of NewCo Class A common stock in connection with the Potential Business Combination. Risks Related toNewCo’s Securities Following Consummation of the Potential Business Combination • The requirements of being a public company may strain our resources, divert management’s attention, and affect our ability to attract and retain executive management and qualified board members. • If, following the Potential Business Combination, securities or industry analysts do not publish or cease publishing research or reports about NewCo, its business, or its market, or if they change their recommendations regarding NewCo’s securities adversely, the price and trading volume of NewCo’s securities could decline. • An active trading market for NewCo’s shares of common stock may not be available on a consistent basis to provide shareholders with adequate liquidity. The stock price may be volatile, and shareholders may not be able to sell shares at or above the price at which they purchase their shares, resulting in a loss of all or a significant part of their investment. • Following the completion of the Potential Business Combination, Suntuity or its principal shareholders may control a significant percentage of the voting power of NewCo and will be able to exert significant control over the direction of the business. Such concentration of ownership may affect the market demand for NewCo’s shares. • There can be no assurance that NewCo’s common stock will be approved for listing on a national stock exchange following the closing, or that NewCo will be able to comply with the continued listing standards of such national stock exchange. • Because NewCo has no current plans to pay cash dividends for the foreseeable future, stockholders may not receive any return on investment unless they sell their shares for a price greater than that which they paid for them. • Warrants will become exercisable for NewCo’s common stock, which would increase the number of shares eligible for future resale in the public market and result in dilution to NewCo’s shareholders and could also cause the market price of our common stock to drop significantly, even if our business is doing well. • NewCo may issue shares of preferred stock in the future, which could make it difficult for another company to acquire it or could otherwise adversely affect holders of its common stock. • Stockholders will experience immediate dilution as a consequence of the issuance of common stock as consideration in the Potential Business Combination. Having a minority share position may reduce the influence that stockholders have on our management. • Future sales and issuances of NewCo’s common stock or rights to purchase NewCo’s common stock, including pursuant to NewCo’s equity incentive plans, or other equity securities or securities convertible into NewCo’s common stock, including Beard’s outstanding warrants, could result in additional dilution of the percentage ownership of NewCo’s shareholders and could cause the stock price of NewCo’s common stock to decline even if its business is doing well. • If we fail to establish and maintain effective internal controls, our ability to produce accurate and timely financial statements could be impaired, which could harm our operating results, investors’ views of us, and, as a result, the value of our common stock. • Our internal controls and procedures may not prevent or detect all errors or acts of fraud. • Restatements of previously issued financial statements, the filing of notices that previously issued financial statements may not be relied upon, and findings of material weaknesses and significant deficiencies in internal controls over financial reporting could delay or have a material adverse effect on Beard’s, NewCo’s and Suntuity’s ability to consummate the Potential Business Combination. • Changes to, or application of different, financial accounting standards (including PCAOB standards) may result in changes to our results of operations, which changes could be material. • NewCo will incur significant expenses as a result of being a public company, which could materially adversely affect NewCo’s business, results of operations, and financial condition. • We may be unable to achieve milestones set forth by management, our quarterly operating results may fluctuate significantly and our financial results may fall below the expectations of investors or securities analysts, each of which may cause our stock price to fluctuate or decline. The price of our shares may be further subject to fluctuation or decline based on general economic conditions, legislative changes, changes in business prospects, and other events and factors that are beyond our control. • After the completion of the Potential Business Combination, we may be at an increased risk of securities class action litigation. • Anti-takeover provisions contained in the post-closing governing documents and applicable laws could impair a takeover attempt. • NewCo will be an emerging growth company and may be considered a smaller reporting company within the meaning of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and it may determine to take advantage of certain exemptions from disclosure requirements available to emerging growth companies or smaller reporting companies. Such a determination could make NewCo’s securities less attractive to investors and may make it more difficult to compare NewCo’s performance with other public companies. 29
