Corporate Governance Statement

As a Luxembourg governed company that will be traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the Company is not required to adhere to the Luxembourg corporate governance regime applicable to companies that are traded in Luxembourg or to the German corporate governance regime applicable to listed companies in Germany. As these regimes have not been designed for special purpose acquisition companies like the Company but for fully operational companies, the Company has opted to not apply the Luxembourg or German corporate governance regime on a voluntary basis either. That being said, we are in compliance with certain rules of the German corporate governance codex that we believe also apply to a special purpose acquisition company (e.g., audit committee).
