These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified i n t his Presentation, and on the current expectations of PICO’s and FTAC’s management and are not predictions of actual performance, and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. 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 d iff icult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of PICO and FTAC. These forward - looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including, but no t limited to, changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political and legal conditions; the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the Proposed Business Combination, including the risk that any req uired 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 Proposed Business Combination or that the approval of t he stockholders of FTAC or PICO is not obtained; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Proposed Business Combination; the inability to complete the PIPE investment in connection with the proposed transaction; the lack of a t hird party valuation in determining whether or not to pursue the proposed transactions; risks relating to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to PICO; risks related to expansion of PICO’s business and te chn ology; the effects of competition on PICO’s future business; the effects of natural disasters, terrorist attacks and the spread and/or abatement of infectious diseases, such as COVID - 19, on PICO’s business or on the ability to implement business pla ns, forecasts, and other expectations after the completion of the proposed transactions; the ability of FTAC or the combined company to issue equity or equity - linked securities or obtain debt financing in connection with the Proposed Busine ss Combination or in the future, and those factors discussed in FTAC’s final prospectus dated February 22, 2021 under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of FTAC filed, or to be filed, with the Securities and Exchange Commiss ion (“SEC”). These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward - looking statements. If any of these risks materialize or ou r assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward - looking statements. There may be additional risks that none of FTAC or PICO presently know or that FTAC or PICO currently believe are im material that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward - looking statements. In addition, forward - looking statements reflect FTAC’s and PICO’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this Presentation. FTAC and PICO anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause FTAC’s and PICO’s assessments to change. However, while FTAC and PICO may elect to update these forward - looking statements at so me point in the future, FTAC and PICO specifically disclaim any obligation to do so, unless required by applicable law. These forward - looking statements should not be relied upon as representing FTAC’s and PICO’s assessments as of a ny date subsequent to the date of this Presentation. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward - looking statements. Certain market data information in this Presentation is based on the estimates of PICO and FTAC management. PICO and FTAC obtained the industry, market and competitive position data used throughout this Presentation from internal estimates and research as well as from industry publications and research, surveys and studies con duc ted by third parties. PICO and FTAC believe their estimates to be accurate as of the date of this Presentation. However, this information may prove to be inaccurate because of the method by which PICO or FTAC obtained some of the data fo r i ts estimates or because this information cannot always be verified due to the limits on the availability and reliability of raw data, the voluntary nature of the data gathering process. Use of Projections This Presentation contains projected financial information with respect to PICO. Such projected financial information constit ute s forward - looking information, and is for illustrative purposes only and should not be relied upon as necessarily being indicative of future results. The assumptions and estimates underlying such financial forecast information are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, economic, competitive and other risks and uncertainties. See “Forward - Looking Statements” above. Actual results may differ materially from the results con templated by the financial 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 for ecasts will be achieved.



3 CONFIDENTIAL Disclaimer Important Information and Where to Find It In connection with the Proposed Business Combination, FTAC intends to file a proxy statement with the SEC, which will be dist rib uted to holders of FTAC’s ordinary shares in connection with FTAC’s solicitation of proxies for the vote by FTAC’s stockholders with respect to the Proposed Business Combination and other matters as described in the proxy statement. Aft er the proxy statement has been cleared by the SEC, FTAC will mail a definitive proxy statement, when available, to its stockholders. Investors and security holders and other interested parties are urged to read the proxy state men t, and any amendments thereto and any other documents filed with the SEC when they become available, carefully and in their entirety because they contain important information about FTAC, PICO and the Proposed Business Combina tio n. Investors and security holders may obtain free copies of the preliminary proxy statement and definitive proxy statement (when available) and other documents filed with the SEC by FTAC through the website maintained by the SEC at http://www.sec.gov . No Offer or Solicitation This communication does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, or the solicitation of any vote or approval in any jurisdiction in connection with the Proposed Business Combination among PICO and FTAC or any related transactions, nor shall there be any sale, issuance or transfer of securities in any jurisdiction where, or to an y p erson to whom, such offer, solicitation or sale may be unlawful. Any offering of securities or solicitation of votes regarding the proposed transaction will be made only by means of a proxy statement that complies with applicable rules and re gul ations promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or pursuant to an exemption from the Securities Act or in a transaction not subj ect to the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

Financial Information; Non - GAAP Financial Measures The financial information and data contained in this Presentation are unaudited and do not conform to Regulation S - X. Accordingl y, such information and data may not be included in, may be adjusted in or may be presented differently in, the proxy statement or any other document to be filed by FTAC with the SEC. Some of the financial information and data co nta ined in this Presentation, such as earnings before income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), have not been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). FTAC and PICO beli eve these non - GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to PICO’s financial condition and results of operations. PICO’s mana gem ent uses these non - GAAP measures for trend analyses and for budgeting and planning purposes. FTAC and PICO believe that the use of these non - GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating pr ojected operating results and trends in and in comparing PICO’s financial measures with other similar companies, many of which present similar non - GAAP financial measures to investors. PICO is not able to forecast net income on a forward - looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect GAAP, and therefore has not provided a reconciliation for forward - looking EBITDA. Management 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 financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses an d income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in PICO’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expense and income are ex clu ded or included in determining these non - GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non - GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. You should review PICO's audited f inancial statements, which will be included in the proxy statement. Trademarks and Intellectual Property All trademarks, service marks, and trade names of PICO or FTAC or their respective affiliates used herein are trademarks, ser vic e marks, or registered trade names of PICO or FTAC, respectively, as noted herein. Any other product, company names, or logos mentioned herein are the trademarks and/or intellectual property of their respective owners, and thei r u se is not intended to, and does not imply, a relationship with PICO or FTAC, or an endorsement or sponsorship by or of PICO or FTAC.
