On May 27, 2022, 890 5th Avenue Partners, LLC (“890”) entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Group Nine SPAC, LLC (“Sponsor”) and Group Nine Media LLC (“Seller”), pursuant to which 890 purchased certain Class A interests of the Sponsor held by Seller, which economically corresponds to 4,025,000 shares (the “Subject Interest”) of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Founder Shares”), of Group Nine Acquisition Corp. (the “SPAC”). The Subject Interest is subject to the same registration rights pursuant to that certain Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of January 14, 2021, by and among the SPAC, Sponsor and the other parties thereto, as are the other Founder Shares held by the Sponsor and the other holders thereof.

The Subject Interest remains subject to the terms of the Letter Agreement on the same terms as the other Founder Shares held by the Sponsor and the other parties thereto.
