While such information is believed to be reliable for the purposes used herein, none of Gores’, Luminar’s, their respective affiliates, nor Gores’, Luminar’s or their respective affiliates' directors, officers, employees, members, partners, stockholders, or agents makes any representation or warranty with respect to the accuracy of such information. This presentation is not an expression of Gores’ interest in Luminar and does not constitute an offer or agreement to acquire Luminar; it being understood that the terms of any such acquisition would be set forth in definitive documents in form and substance satisfactory to the parties and executed by them. Forward-Looking Statements This presentation includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of words such as “future,” “growth,” “opportunity,” “well-positioned,” "forecast," "intend," "seek," "target," “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” “plan,” “outlook,” and “project” and other similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, projected financial information, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of other financial and performance metrics, projections of market opportunity and market share and statements regarding the proposed relationship between Luminar and Volvo and the implications of those arrangements and related agreements on Luminar’s business and results of operations. Such forward-looking statements with respect to revenues, earnings, performance, strategies, prospects and other aspects of the businesses of Gores, Luminar or the combined company after completion of any proposed business combination are based on current expectations that are subject to risks and uncertainties. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this presentation, and on the current expectations of Gores’ and Luminar's management 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. A number of factors could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to: the inability to complete the transactions contemplated by the proposed business combination; the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed business combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, and the ability of the combined business to grow and manage growth profitably; costs related to the proposed business combination; changes in applicable laws or regulations; the inability to successfully retain or recruit officers, key employees or directors following the proposed business combination; effects of Gores' public securities' liquidity and trading; the market's reaction to the proposed business combination; the lack of a market for Gores' securities; Gores' and Luminar's financial performance following the proposed business combination; the possibility that Luminar or Gores may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors, including the level of demand and financial performance of the autonomous vehicle industry and market adoption of lidar; the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the proposed business combination or the expected benefits of the proposed business combination; the risk that the approval of the stockholders of Gores or Luminar is not obtained; risks related to Luminar's relationship with Volvo, and the related timing of production schedules and other key milestones; the amount of redemption requests made by Gores’ public stockholders; the inability of Luminar to adequately protect or enforce its intellectual property rights or prevent unauthorized parties from copying or reverse engineering its solutions which efforts to protect and enforce Luminar’s intellectual property rights and prevent third parties from violating its rights may be costly; any legal and/or regulatory proceedings and commercial or contractual disputes in which Luminar may become involved, which could have an adverse effect on its profitability; changes in the price of key materials and disruptions in supply chains for these materials; the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic; and other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in the final prospectus of Gores filed on February 1, 2019, Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, in each case, under “Risk Factors,”, and other documents filed or to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by Gores. There may be additional risks that neither Gores nor Luminar presently know or that Gores and Luminar currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, including the projections, which speak only as of the date made. Neither Gores nor Luminar undertake any commitment to update or revise the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Accordingly, forward-looking statements, including any projections or analysis, should not be viewed as factual and should not be relied upon as an accurate prediction of future results. The forward-looking statements contained in this presentation are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on Gores and Luminar. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control), or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. Accordingly, you should not put undue reliance on these statements.

DISCLAIMER Use of Projections This presentation contains financial forecasts with respect to certain financial measurements of Luminar, including, but not limited to Luminar’s projected Revenue, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA for Luminar’s fiscal years 2020 through 2025. Such projected financial information constitutes forward-looking information, and is for illustrative purposes only and should not be relied upon as necessarily being indicative of future results. Neither Gores’ independent auditors, nor the independent registered public accounting firm of Luminar, audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to the projections for the purpose of their inclusion in this presentation, and accordingly, neither of them expressed an opinion or provided any other form of assurance with respect thereto for the purpose of this presentation. These projections should not be relied upon as being necessarily indicative of future results. Neither Gores nor Luminar undertakes any commitment to update or revise the projections, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. In this presentation, certain of the above-mentioned projected information has been repeated (in each case, with an indication that the information is an estimate and is subject to the qualifications presented herein), for purposes of providing comparisons with historical data. The assumptions and estimates underlying the prospective financial information are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the prospective financial information. See “Forward-Looking Statements” paragraph above. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the prospective results are indicative of the future performance of Gores or Luminar or that actual results will not differ materially from those presented in the prospective financial information. Inclusion of the prospective financial information in this presentation should not be regarded as a representation by any person that the results contained in the prospective financial information will be achieved. Industry and Market Data In this presentation, Gores and Luminar rely on and refer to information and statistics regarding the sectors in which Luminar competes and other industry data. Gores and Luminar obtained this information and statistics from third-party sources, including reports by market research firms. Although Gores and Luminar believe these sources are reliable, they have not independently verified the information and do not guarantee its accuracy and completeness. Gores and Luminar have supplemented this information where necessary with information from discussions with Luminar customers and Luminar’s own internal estimates, taking into account publicly available information about other industry participants and Luminar’s management’s best view as to information that is not publicly available. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures The financial information and data contained in this presentation is unaudited and does not conform to Regulation S-X promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Accordingly, such information and data may not be included in, may be adjusted in or may be presented differently in, any proxy statement/prospectus to be filed by Gores with the SEC. This presentation includes non-GAAP financial measures, including earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and Free Cash Flow (“FCF”). Free Cash Flow is defined as EBITDA less capital expenditures (including patent acquisitions) less changes in net working capital less net interest expense less taxes (including the benefit of existing and future net operating losses). Gores and Luminar believe that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Luminar’s financial condition and results of operations. Luminar’s management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare Luminar’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and for budgeting and planning purposes. These measures are used in monthly financial reports prepared for management and Luminar’s board of directors. Gores and Luminar believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends. Management of Luminar does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in Luminar's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by Luminar’s management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP measures. Other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, and therefore the non-GAAP measures of Luminar included in this presentation may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Important Information for Investors and Stockholders In connection with the proposed business combination, Gores intends to file with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-4, which will include a proxy statement to be to be distributed to Gores stockholders in connection with Gores’ solicitation of proxies for the vote by Gores’ stockholders with respect to the proposed business combination and other matters to be described therein, as well as the prospectus relating to the offer of the securities to be issued to Luminar’s stockholders in connection with the completion of the proposed business combination. This investor presentation does not contain all the information that should be considered in the proposed business combination. It is not intended to form any basis of any investment decision or any other decision in respect to the proposed business combination. Gores stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the proxy statement/prospectus and any amendments thereto, when available, in connection with Gores’ solicitation of proxies for the special meeting to be held to approve the transactions contemplated by the proposed business combination because these materials will contain important information about Luminar, Gores and the proposed transactions. The definitive proxy statement/prospectus will be mailed to Gores stockholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the proposed business combination when it becomes available. Stockholders will also be able to obtain a copy of the proxy statement/prospectus, including any amendments thereto, once they are available, without charge, at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to Gores Metropoulos, Inc., c/o The Gores Group LLC, 9800 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, CA 90212, attention: Jennifer Kwon Chou (jchou@gores.com). No Offer or Solicitation This presentation is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell, the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or a solicitation of any vote in any jurisdiction pursuant to the proposed business combination or otherwise, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offer of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Participants in the Solicitation Luminar and Gores and their respective directors and officers and other members of management and employees may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies in connection with the proposed business combination.
