PROJECT ENERGY REIMAGINED ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF ORGANIZATION, BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND GOING CONCERN

Project Energy Reimagined Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) is a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on February 10, 2021. The Company was formed for the purpose of effectuating a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar business combination with one or more businesses (the “Business Combination”). The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

As of June 30, 2023, the Company had not commenced any operations. All activity for the period from February 10, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2023 relates to the Company’s formation and the preparation of its initial public offering (“Initial Public Offering”), as described below, and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a target for the Business Combination. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company generates non-operating income in the form of dividend income, interest income or gains on investments on the cash and investments held in a trust account from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering. The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on October 28, 2021. On November 2, 2021, the Company consummated the Initial Public Offering of 25,000,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units sold, the “Public Shares”), at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $250,000,000, which is discussed in Note 3.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 8,150,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, in a private placement to Smilodon Capital, LLC (the “Sponsor”), generating gross proceeds of $8,150,000, which is discussed in Note 4.

The Company had granted the underwriters in the Initial Public Offering a 45-day option to purchase up to 3,750,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any (see Note 6). On November 12, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and on November 17, 2021 purchased an additional 1,377,660 Units (the “Over-Allotment Units”), generating gross proceeds of $13,776,600.

Simultaneously with the closing of the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 275,532 warrants (the “Over-Allotment Warrants”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $275,532.

Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the sales of the Over-Allotment Units and Over-Allotment Warrants, an amount of $263,776,600 ($10.00 per Unit) from the net proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering, the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, the sale of the Over-Allotment Units, and the sale of the Over-Allotment Warrants was placed in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) and invested only in U.S. government treasury obligations with maturities of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of the initial Business Combination; (ii) the redemption of any Public Shares properly tendered in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association”) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete the initial Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below) or with respect to any other material provisions relating to shareholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity; and (iii) absent an initial Business Combination within the Combination Period, the return of the funds held in the Trust Account to the holders of the Public Shares (the “Public Shareholders”) as part of the redemption of the Public Shares. If the Company is unable to complete the initial Business Combination, the Company’s Public Shareholders may only receive their pro rata portion of the funds in the Trust Account that are available for distribution to Public Shareholders, and the warrants will expire worthless.

PROJECT ENERGY REIMAGINED ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Company will provide its Public Shareholders with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a shareholder meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The decision as to whether the Company will seek shareholder approval of a Business Combination or conduct a tender offer will be made by the Company, in its sole discretion. The Public Shareholders will be entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount held in the Trust Account (initially $10.00 per share), calculated as of two business days prior to the completion of a Business Combination, including any pro rata interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its tax obligations. There will be no redemption rights upon the completion of a Business Combination with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Class A ordinary shares are recorded at redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”).

The Company will proceed with a Business Combination if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon consummation of such Business Combination and a majority of the shares voted are voted in favor of the Business Combination. If a shareholder vote is not required under applicable law or stock exchange listing requirements and the Company does not decide to hold a shareholder vote for business or other reasons, the Company will, pursuant to its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association as then in effect, conduct the redemptions pursuant to the tender offer rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and file tender offer documents containing substantially the same information as would be included in a proxy statement with the SEC prior to completing a Business Combination. If the Company seeks shareholder approval in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor and the Company’s management team have agreed to vote any Founder Shares (as defined in Note 5) held by them, and any Public Shares purchased by them in or after the Initial Public Offering in favor of approving a Business Combination. Additionally, each Public Shareholder may elect to redeem their Public Shares irrespective of whether they vote for or against the proposed transaction or vote at all.

If the Company seeks shareholder approval of the initial Business Combination and the Company does not conduct redemptions in connection with the initial Business Combination pursuant to the tender offer rules, the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provide that a Public Shareholder, together with any affiliate of such shareholder or any other person with whom such shareholder is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined in Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), will be restricted from seeking redemption rights with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% of the shares sold in the Initial Public Offering without the Company’s prior consent (the “Excess Shares”). However, the Company would not be restricting the shareholders’ ability to vote all of their shares (including Excess Shares) for or against the initial Business Combination. The shareholders’ inability to redeem the Excess Shares will reduce their influence over the ability to complete the initial Business Combination, and such shareholders could suffer a material loss in their investment if they sell such Excess Shares on the open market. Additionally, such shareholders will not receive redemption distributions with respect to the Excess Shares if the Company completes the initial Business Combination. As a result, such shareholders will continue to hold that number of shares exceeding 15% and, in order to dispose such shares would be required to sell their shares in open-market transactions, potentially at a loss.

The Sponsor, Anchor Investors (as defined below in Note 5) and management team have agreed to (i) waive their redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares and, solely with respect to the Sponsor and management team, Public Shares they hold in connection with the completion of an initial Business Combination, (ii) waive their redemption rights with respect to any Founder Shares and, solely with respect to the Sponsor and management team, Public Shares they hold in connection with a shareholder vote to approve an amendment to the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company has not consummated an initial Business Combination within the Combination Period or with respect to any other material provisions relating to shareholders’ rights or pre-initial Business Combination activity and (iii) waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any Founder Shares they hold if the Company fails to complete an initial Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below). However, if the Sponsor or Anchor Investors acquire Public Shares in or after the Initial Public Offering, such Public Shares will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period (as defined below).

The Anchor Investors are not required to (i) hold any Units, Class A ordinary shares or warrants they may purchase in the Initial Public Offering or thereafter for any amount of time, (ii) vote any Class A ordinary shares they may own at the applicable time in favor of the

6

Table of Contents

PROJECT ENERGY REIMAGINED ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Business Combination or (iii) refrain from exercising their right to redeem their Public Shares at the time of the Business Combination. The Anchor Investors have the same rights to the funds held in the Trust Account with respect to the Class A ordinary shares.

The Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association provides that the Company will have only 18 months from the closing of Initial Public Offering (or 21 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering if the Company has executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle, or definitive agreement for an initial Business Combination within 18 months from the closing of the Initial Public Offering, but has not completed an initial Business Combination within such 18-month period) to complete an initial Business Combination. The Company entered into a non-binding letter of intent, dated as of April 25, 2023, with respect to an initial Business Combination, that automatically extended the period that the Company had to complete an initial Business Combination to August 2, 2023 pursuant to the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. On August 1, 2023, the Company held an extraordinary general meeting in lieu of the 2023 annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”). At the Extraordinary General Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved, among other matters, the extension of the date by which the Company must consummate an initial Business Combination from August 2, 2023 to May 2, 2024, or such earlier date as determined by the Company’s board of directors (the “Combination Period”), for a total extension of up to nine months (collectively, the “Extension”). If the Company is unable to complete an initial Business Combination within the Combination Period (or such later date as may be approved by the Company’s shareholders at a meeting called for such purpose at which the Company’s shareholders will be given the opportunity to have their Public Shares redeemed for a pro rata portion of the funds in the Trust Account), the Company will then liquidate in accordance with the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. If the Company is unable to complete an initial Business Combination within the Combination Period or during any extension period, the Company will: (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than 10 business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay taxes (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining shareholders and the board of directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii) to the obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and the other requirements of applicable law. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the warrants, which will expire worthless if the Company fails to complete an initial Business Combination within the Combination Period.

The underwriters have agreed to waive their rights to their deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6) held in the Trust Account in the event the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and, in such event, such amounts will be included with the other funds held in the Trust Account that will be available to fund the redemption of the Public Shares. In April 2023, the underwriters further waived their rights to 100% of the deferred underwriting commission (see Note 6).

In order to protect the amounts held in the Trust Account, the Sponsor has agreed that it will be liable to the Company if and to the extent any claims by a third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company, or a prospective target business with which the Company has entered into a written letter of intent, confidentiality or other similar agreement or Business Combination agreement, reduce the amount of funds in the Trust Account to below the lesser of (i) $10.00 per Public Share and (ii) the actual amount per Public Share held in the Trust Account as of the date of the liquidation of the Trust Account, if less than $10.00 per Public Share due to reductions in the value of the trust assets, less taxes payable, provided that such liability will not apply to any claims by a third party or prospective target business who executed a waiver of any and all rights to the monies held in the Trust Account (whether or not such waiver is enforceable) nor will it apply to any claims under the indemnity of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). However, the Company has not asked the Sponsor to reserve for such indemnification obligations, nor has the Company independently verified whether the Sponsor has sufficient funds to satisfy its indemnity obligations and the Company believes that the Sponsor’s only assets are securities of the Company. Therefore, the Company cannot assure you that the Sponsor would be able to satisfy those obligations. As a result, if any such claims were successfully made against the Trust Account, the funds available for the initial Business Combination and redemptions could be reduced to less than $10.00 per Public Share. In such event, the Company may not be able to complete the initial Business Combination, and you would receive such lesser amount per share in connection with any redemption of the Public Shares. None of the

officers or directors will indemnify the Company for claims by third parties including, without limitation, claims by vendors and prospective target businesses.

Risks and Uncertainties

In February 2022, the Russian Federation and Belarus commenced a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including the United States, have instituted economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and Belarus. Further, the impact of this action and related sanctions on the world economy are not determinable as of the date of these condensed financial statements. The specific impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows is also not determinable as of the date of these condensed financial statements.

Liquidity and Going Concern

As of June 30, 2023, the Company had $89,542 in cash held outside of the Trust Account and a working capital deficit of $1,451,615. The cash held outside the Trust Account is not expected to be sufficient for the Company to operate for the next 12 months from the issuance of the condensed financial statements. In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB’s Accounting Standards Update 2014-15, Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, management has determined that if the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination by May 2, 2024 (or such later date as may be approved by the Company’s shareholders at a meeting called for such purpose at which the Company’s shareholders will be given the opportunity to have their Public Shares redeemed for a pro rata portion of the funds in the Trust Account), then the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating. The expected liquidity concerns, date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern one year from the date that these condensed financial statements are issued. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The Company intends to complete a Business Combination before the mandatory liquidation date or obtain approval for an extension.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed financial statements of the Company are presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in condensed financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of a normal recurring nature, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. The accompanying condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on April 7, 2023. The interim results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023 or for any future periods.

Emerging Growth Company

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved. The Company has elected to implement the aforementioned exemptions.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Further, section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s condensed financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of condensed financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period.

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the condensed financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company did not have any cash equivalents as of June 30, 2023 or December 31, 2022.

Investments Held in Trust Account

As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the assets held in the Trust Account were held in money market funds which were invested in U.S. Treasury securities. Trading securities are presented on the condensed balance sheets at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Any gain and loss resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in gain (loss) on investments held in Trust Account in the accompanying condensed statements of operations. Interest and dividend income on these securities is included in interest and dividend income on investments held in Trust Account in the accompanying condensed statements of operations.

Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

All of the 26,377,660 Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the partial exercise of the over-allotment option contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with the Business Combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. In accordance with ASC 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Public Shares have been classified outside of permanent equity.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid-in capital and accumulated deficit. The redemption value of the redeemable ordinary shares as of June 30, 2023 increased as the income earned on the Trust Account exceeds the Company’s expected dissolution expenses (up to $100,000). As such, the Company recorded an increase in the carrying amount of the redeemable ordinary shares of 5,963,397 for the six months ended June 30, 2023.

Offering Costs associated with the Initial Public Offering

The Company complies with the requirements of ASC Topic 340, Other Assets and Deferred Costs and SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin Topic 5A - Expenses of Offering (“SAB Topic 5A”). Offering costs consist principally of professional and registration fees incurred through the balance sheet date that are related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs directly attributable to the issuance of an equity contract to be classified in equity are recorded as a reduction in equity. Offering costs for equity contracts that are classified as assets and liabilities are expensed immediately. The Company incurred offering costs amounting to $34,696,193 as a result of the Initial Public Offering (consisting of a $5,275,532 underwriting discount, $9,232,181 of deferred underwriting fees, $19,381,703 of Anchor Investor offering costs, $1,334,330 of other offering costs, partially offset by $527,553 in reimbursements of offering expenses by the underwriters). The Company recorded $32,606,933 of offering costs as a reduction of temporary equity in connection with the Public Shares. The Company immediately expensed $2,089,260 of offering costs in connection with the Public Warrants (as defined in Note 3) and the Private Placement Warrants that were classified as liabilities.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). ASC 740 requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for both the expected impact of differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities and for the expected future tax benefit to be derived from tax loss and tax credit carry forwards. ASC 740 additionally requires a valuation allowance to be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized.

ASC 740 also clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s condensed financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. Based on the Company’s evaluation, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s condensed financial statements.

The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position. The Company is considered an exempted Cayman Islands Company and is presently not subject to income taxes or income tax filing requirements in the Cayman Islands or the United States. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s condensed financial statements.

Net Income Per Ordinary Share

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Net income per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. Remeasurement associated with the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from net income per share as the redemption value approximates fair value. Therefore, the net income per share calculation allocates income and losses shared pro rata between Class A and Class B ordinary shares. As a result, the calculated net income per share is the same for Class A and Class B ordinary shares. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering, the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, and private placements to purchase an aggregate of 21,614,362 shares in the calculation of diluted income per share, since the exercise of the

10

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted net income per share is the same as basic net income per share for the periods presented.

The following table reflects the calculation of basic and diluted net income per ordinary share (in dollars, except per share amounts):

Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of a cash account in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Depository Insurance Coverage of $250,000. The Company has not experienced losses on this account and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such account.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company applies ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC 820”), which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and clarifies the definition of fair value within that framework. ASC 820 defines fair value as an exit price, which is the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the Company’s principal or most advantageous market in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The fair value hierarchy established in ASC 820 generally requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. Observable inputs reflect the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs reflect the entity’s own assumptions based on market data and the entity’s judgments about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability and are to be developed based on the best information available in the circumstances.

The carrying amounts reflected in the condensed balance sheet for current assets and current liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.

Level 1 — Assets and liabilities with unadjusted, quoted prices listed on active market exchanges. Inputs to the fair value measurement are observable inputs, such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

11

Table of Contents

PROJECT ENERGY REIMAGINED ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Level 2 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are determined using prices for recently traded assets and liabilities with similar underlying terms, as well as direct or indirect observable inputs, such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

Level 3 — Inputs to the fair value measurement are unobservable inputs, such as estimates, assumptions, and valuation techniques when little or no market data exists for the assets or liabilities.

See Note 9 for additional information on assets and liabilities measured at fair value.

Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as assets or liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value on the grant date and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. Derivative instruments are classified in the condensed balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement or conversion of the instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

The Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants are accounted for as a derivative instrument in accordance with ASC 815 and are presented as warrant liabilities on the condensed balance sheet. The Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants were measured at fair value at the Initial Public Offering and on a recurring basis, with subsequent changes in fair value to be recorded in the condensed statements of operations.

The forward purchase agreement is accounted for as a derivative instrument in accordance with ASC 815 and is presented as a derivative forward purchase agreement liability on the condensed balance sheet. The Company shall issue and sell up to 2,000,000 forward purchase units at a purchase price of $10.00 per unit, for an aggregate purchase price of up to $20,000,000. The amounts actually sold shall be determined solely by the Company and is not obligated to issue or sell any forward purchase units. The forward purchase agreement was measured at fair value at the Initial Public Offering and on a recurring basis, with subsequent changes in fair value to be recorded in the condensed statements of operations. See Note 5 for additional information on the forward purchase agreement.

Recent Accounting Standards

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s condensed financial statements.

NOTE 3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on October 28, 2021. On November 2, 2021, the Company completed its Initial Public Offering of 25,000,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $250,000,000. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-half of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per whole share (see Note 7). On November 12, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and on November 17, 2021 purchased an additional 1,377,660 Over-Allotment Units, generating gross proceeds of $13,776,600. Gross proceeds from the Initial Public Offering and closing of the partial exercise of the over-allotment option totaled $263,776,600.

NOTE 4. PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the sale of 8,150,000 warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds of $8,150,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, the Company consummated the sale of 275,532 Over-Allotment Warrants at a purchase price of $1.00 per warrant in a private placement to the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $275,532, for an aggregate total of $8,425,532 in gross proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants and Over-Allotment Warrants. Each Private Placement Warrant and Over-Allotment Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants and Over-Allotment Warrants were added to the net proceeds from the Initial Public Offering and the Over-Allotment Units held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants and Over-Allotment Warrants that are included in the Trust Account will be used to fund the redemption of the Public Shares (subject to the requirements of applicable law) and the Private Placement Warrants and Over-Allotment Warrants will expire worthless.

NOTE 5. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Founder Shares

On February 18, 2021, the Sponsor was issued 8,625,000 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”) for an aggregate of $25,000 paid to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company. In June 2021, the Sponsor surrendered 1,437,500 Class B ordinary shares for no consideration, resulting in an aggregate of 7,187,500 Class B ordinary shares outstanding. All shares and associated amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the share surrender. The Founder Shares included an aggregate of up to 937,500 Class B ordinary shares subject to forfeiture by the Sponsor to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option was not exercised in full or in part, so that the Sponsor and its permitted transferees would own, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering. On November 17, 2021, with the partial exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, 344,415, Class B ordinary shares were no longer subject to forfeiture, leaving 593,085 Class B ordinary shares subject to forfeiture. On December 12, 2021, the remaining over-allotment option expired and the 593,085 Class B ordinary shares were forfeited.

The Sponsor and the Additional Anchor Investors (as defined below) have each agreed with the Company that, subject to certain limited exceptions, the Founder Shares are not transferable, assignable or salable (except to the officers and directors and other persons or entities affiliated with the Sponsor, each of whom will be subject to the same transfer restrictions) until the earlier of (A) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination or earlier if, subsequent to the initial Business Combination, the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share divisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination, and (B) the date following the completion of the initial Business Combination on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, capital stock exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the shareholders having the right to exchange their Class A ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.

A total of eleven Anchor Investors (the “Anchor Investors,” representing both the Original Anchor Investors and the Additional Anchor Investors, as such terms are defined below) purchased Units in the Initial Public Offering at the offering price of $10.00 per Unit. Pursuant to such Units, the Anchor Investors have not been granted any shareholder or other rights in addition to those afforded to the Company’s other Public Shareholders.

Three Anchor Investors (the “Original Anchor Investors”) entered into separate subscription agreements in March and July 2021 with the Sponsor for direct interests in the Founder Shares held by the Sponsor. The Original Anchor Investors purchased interests representing 1,379,850 Founder Shares at a purchase price of $0.004 per share or $5,519 in the aggregate.

The other eight Anchor Investors (the “Additional Anchor Investors”) entered into separate subscription agreements in September 2021 with the Sponsor for the purchase of Founder Shares from the Sponsor. The Additional Anchor Investors purchased 1,171,717 Founder Shares at a purchase price of $0.004 per share or $4,687 in the aggregate.

13

Table of Contents

PROJECT ENERGY REIMAGINED ACQUISITION CORP.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Anchor Investors have not been granted any shareholder or other rights in addition to those afforded to the Company’s other Public Shareholders. Further, the Anchor Investors are not required to (i) hold any Units, Class A ordinary shares or warrants they may purchase in the Initial Public Offering or thereafter for any amount of time, (ii) vote any Class A ordinary shares they may own at the applicable time in favor of the Business Combination or (iii) refrain from exercising their right to redeem their Public Shares at the time of the Business Combination. The Anchor Investors have the same rights to the funds held in the Trust Account with respect to the Class A ordinary shares underlying the Units they purchased in the Initial Public Offering as the rights afforded to the Company’s other Public Shareholders.

The Company estimated the fair value of the Founder Shares attributable to the Anchor Investors to be $19,391,909 or $7.60 per share. The excess of the fair value of the Founder Shares sold over the aggregate purchase price of $10,206 (or $0.004 per share) was determined to be an offering cost in accordance with SAB Topic 5A. Accordingly, the offering cost was allocated to the separable financial instruments issued in the Initial Public Offering based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received.

Forward Purchase Agreement

In September 2021, the Company amended and restated the forward purchase agreement pursuant to which EWI Capital SPAC I LLC, an affiliate of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Sponsor (“EWI” or the “forward purchase investor”) has subscribed to purchase from the Company up to 2,000,000 units (the “forward purchase units”), with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share, par value of $0.0001 per share, (the “forward purchase shares”) and one-half of one redeemable warrant (the “forward purchase warrants”), for $10.00 per unit, or up to $20,000,000, in a private placement to close substantially concurrently with the closing of a Business Combination. The terms of the forward purchase units will be identical to the terms of the Units being offered in the Initial Public Offering, except that the forward purchase securities will have certain registration rights as described below and the forward purchase warrants will be the same as the Private Placement Warrants.

The Company will determine in its sole discretion the specific number of forward purchase units (up to 2,000,000) that it will sell to the forward purchase investor, if any, and the obligation of the forward purchase investor to purchase the forward purchase units is subject to the approval of the forward purchase investor’s manager following notice to the forward purchase investor that the Company intends to enter into an agreement for a Business Combination.

The forward purchase agreement also provides that the forward purchase investor is entitled to registration rights with respect to the forward purchase securities. The proceeds from the sale of the forward purchase units may be used as part of the consideration to the sellers in an initial Business Combination, expenses in connection with an initial Business Combination or for working capital in the post-Business Combination company. These purchases are required to be made regardless of whether any Class A ordinary shares are redeemed by the Public Shareholders and are intended to provide the Company with a minimum funding level for an initial Business Combination. The forward purchase units will be issued only in connection with the closing of an initial Business Combination.

The Company accounts for the forward purchase agreement in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40. Such guidance provides that because the forward purchase agreement does not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, the agreement must be recorded as a liability. Accordingly, the Company classifies the forward purchase agreement as an asset or liability at its fair value. This asset or liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date. With each such remeasurement, the asset or liability will be adjusted to fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s condensed statements of operations.

Administrative Services Agreement

On October 28, 2021, in connection with the Initial Public Offering, the Company entered into an agreement with EWI to pay a total of $30,000 per month to EWI for office space, secretarial and administrative services. Upon the completion of an initial Business Combination or liquidation, the Company will cease paying these monthly fees. For the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company incurred $90,000 and $90,000 of expenses under this agreement, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company incurred $180,000 and $180,000 of expenses under this agreement, respectively. For the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company paid $0 and $60,000 of expenses under this agreement, respectively. For the six months ended

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company paid $30,000 and $150,000 of expenses under this agreement, respectively. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, $215,000 and $65,000 remain unpaid and are recorded in Accrued expenses - related party, respectively.

Related Party Loans

In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company’s officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds held in the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination is not completed, the Company may use a portion of the proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1,500,000 of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into warrants at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. There were no Working Capital Loans outstanding as of June 30, 2023 or December 31, 2022.

NOTE 6. COMMITMENTS

Registration Rights

The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, Over-Allotment Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants, the Over-Allotment Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to consummation of a Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements. Pursuant to the forward purchase agreement with EWI, the Company has agreed that the forward purchase securities will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to the registration rights agreement.

Underwriting Agreement

In connection with the Initial Public Offering, the underwriters were granted a 45-day option from the date of the Initial Public Offering to purchase up to 3,750,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments. On November 12, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option and on November 17, 2021 purchased an additional 1,377,660 Units at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating additional gross proceeds of $13,776,600 to the Company.

In connection with the closing of the Initial Public Offering and subsequent partial exercise of the over-allotment option, the underwriters were paid a cash underwriting discount of $0.20 per Unit, or $5,275,532 in the aggregate. In addition, $0.35 per Unit, or $9,232,181 was payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commission from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completed a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement. On April 17, 2023 and April 27, 2023, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and BofA Securities, Inc., respectively, constituting all of the underwriters, waived their rights to 100% of the deferred underwriting commission. Upon the waiver, the Company reduced the liability by recording a portion of the waiver to accumulated deficit, and a portion as a gain on the waiver, in a manner consistent with the original allocation of the deferred underwriting fee payable. The waiver of the deferred underwriting fee payable does not impact the carrying value of the Public Shares as the Public Shares are recorded at their redemption value.

NOTE 7. WARRANTS

As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 13,188,830 Public Warrants and 8,425,532 Private Placement Warrants outstanding.

Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole warrants will trade. Accordingly, unless holders purchase at least two Units, they will not be able to receive or trade a whole warrant. The warrants will expire five years after the date on which they first become exercisable, at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.

The Company will not be obligated to deliver any Class A ordinary shares pursuant to the exercise of a warrant and will have no obligation to settle such warrant exercise unless a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to the Class A ordinary shares underlying the warrants is then effective and a prospectus relating thereto is current, subject to the satisfying the obligations described below with respect to registration. No warrant will be exercisable and the Company will not be obligated to issue a Class A ordinary share upon exercise of a warrant unless the Class A ordinary share issuable upon such warrant exercise has been registered, qualified or deemed to be exempt under the securities laws of the state of residence of the registered holder of the warrants.

The Company has agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than fifteen (15) business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement for the registration, under the Securities Act, of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants. The Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the same to become effective and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement, and a current prospectus relating thereto, until the expiration of the warrants in accordance with the provisions of the warrant agreement. If a registration statement covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the 60th business day after the closing of the initial Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. Notwithstanding the above, if the Class A ordinary shares are at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at the option, require holders of Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and, in the event the Company so elect, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, and in the event the Company does not so elect, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available.

Redemption of warrants the price Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00. Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants and the forward purchase warrants):

in whole and not in part;
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption (the “30-day redemption period”) to each warrant holder; and
if, and only if, the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share subdivisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending three trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders.

The Company will not redeem the warrants as described above unless a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the issuance of the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares is available throughout the 30-day redemption period or the Company has elected to permit exercise on a “cashless” basis. If and when the warrants become redeemable by the Company, the Company may exercise the redemption right even if the Company is unable to register or qualify the underlying securities for sale under all applicable state securities laws.

Redemption of warrants when the price Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00. Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (except with respect to the Private Placement Warrants and the forward purchase warrants):

in whole and not in part;
at $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares based on the redemption date and the “fair market value” of the Class A ordinary shares except as otherwise described below;
if, and only if, the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $10.00 per Public Share (as adjusted for share subdivisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within the 30-trading day period ending three trading days before the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders; and
if the closing price of the Class A ordinary shares for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted for share subdivisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like), the Private Placement Warrants and the forward purchase warrants must also be concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants, as described above.

The “fair market value” of the Class A ordinary shares for the above purpose shall mean the volume-weighted average price of the Class A ordinary shares during the 10 trading days ending on the third trading day immediately following the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of warrants. This redemption feature differs from the typical warrant redemption features used in other blank check offerings. The Company will provide our warrant holders with the final fair market value no later than one business day after the 10-trading day period described above ends. In no event will the warrants be exercisable in connection with this redemption feature for more than 0.361 Class A ordinary shares per warrant (subject to adjustment).

In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities, excluding forward purchase units, for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination (excluding any forward purchase units) at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per Class A ordinary share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or their affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance, or the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of the initial Business Combination on the date of the consummation of the initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the Class A ordinary shares during the 10 trading day period starting on the trading day after the day on which the Company consummates the initial Business Combination, or, such price, the Market Value, is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price described adjacent to “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $10.00 per share redemption trigger price described adjacent to the caption “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.

The Private Placement Warrants will be identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units being sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions.

The Company accounts for the 13,188,830 Public Warrants and 8,425,532 Private Placement Warrants, issued pursuant with the Initial Public Offering and partial exercise of the over-allotment option, in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40. Such guidance provides that because the warrants do not meet the criteria for equity treatment thereunder, each warrant must be recorded as a liability.

The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments required that the Company record the warrants as derivative liabilities at fair value upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. The warrant liabilities are subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date. With each such re-measurement, the warrant liabilities are adjusted to current fair value, with the change in fair value recognized in the Company’s condensed statements of operations. The Company will reassess the classification at each balance sheet date. If the classification changes as a result of events during the period, the warrants will be reclassified as of the date of the event that causes the reclassification.

NOTE 8. SHAREHOLDERS’ DEFICIT

Preference shares — The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 preference shares of $0.0001, par value. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were no preference shares issued or outstanding.

Class A ordinary shares — The Company is authorized to issue 200,000,000 Class A ordinary shares, $0.0001 par value. Holders of the Company’s ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 26,377,660 Class A ordinary shares issued and outstanding, of which 26,377,660 Class A ordinary shares are subject to possible redemption.

Class B ordinary shares — The Company is authorized to issue 20,000,000 Class B ordinary shares, $0.0001 par value. Holders of the Company’s ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, there were 6,594,415 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding. On November 17, 2021, with the partial exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, 344,415 Class B ordinary shares were no longer subject to forfeiture, leaving 593,085 Class B ordinary shares subject to forfeiture. On December 12, 2021 the remaining over-allotment option expired and the 593,085 Class B ordinary shares were forfeited.

Ordinary shareholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by shareholders. Holders of Class A ordinary shares and holders of Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single Class on all matters submitted to a vote of the shareholders except as required by law.

The Founder Shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares concurrently with or immediately following the consummation of the initial Business Combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment for share divisions, share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like, and subject to further adjustment as provided herein. In the case that additional Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities are issued or deemed issued in connection with the initial Business Combination, the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an as-converted basis, 20% of the total number of Class A ordinary shares outstanding after such conversion (after giving effect to any redemptions of Class A ordinary shares by Public Shareholders), including the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued, or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued, by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, excluding any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities or rights exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination and any Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor, officers or directors upon conversion of working capital loans, provided that such conversion of Founder Shares will never occur on a less than one-for-one basis.

The Company utilized a Monte Carlo simulation model for the initial valuation of the Public Warrants. The subsequent measurement of the Public Warrants as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 is classified as Level 1 due to the use of an observable market quote in an active market under the ticker PEGRW. The quoted price of the Public Warrants was $0.07 and $0.04 per warrant as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

The Company utilized a Black-Scholes model for the initial valuation of the Private Placement Warrants. Inherent in pricing models are assumptions related to expected share-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield, which are considered Level 3 inputs. The Company estimates the volatility of its ordinary shares based on a back-solve lattice model which adjusts the trading price of the Public Warrants for the estimated probability of completing the initial Business Combination. However, since the back-solve lattice model did not produce a meaningful volatility for the Private Placement Warrants as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants were set equal to the fair value of the Public Warrants. The fair value of the Private Placement Warrants was $0.07 and $0.04 per warrant as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

The model used to estimate the fair value of the derivative liability for the forward purchase agreement is based on the assumption that the forward purchase securities are equivalent to the Company’s Units and determined, on a per unit basis, as the price of the Company’s Units less the present value of the contractually stipulated forward price of $10.00.

Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2 and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting period. The estimated fair value of the Public Warrants in the table above transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 fair value measurement in December 2021 when the Public Warrants were separately listed and traded. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 2 fair value measurement as of December 31, 2022 due to the use of an observable market quote for a similar asset in an active market.

NOTE 10. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

The Company evaluated subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the condensed balance sheet date up to the date that the condensed financial statements were issued. Based upon this review, other than below, the Company did not identify any subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the condensed financial statements.

On July 25, 2023, the Company entered into one or more agreements (the “Non-Redemption Agreements”) with one or more unaffiliated third parties in exchange for them each agreeing not to redeem an aggregate of 760,000 Public Shares in connection with certain proposals considered and voted upon at the Extraordinary General Meeting, in exchange for the Company agreeing to issue or cause to be issued to each such investor 138,000 Class A ordinary shares (“Post-Combination Shares”) at the time of the Company’s initial

Business Combination. The Company has since entered into additional Non-Redemption Agreements with unaffiliated third parties on the same or similar terms reflecting the above ratio of non-redeemed Class A ordinary shares to Post-Combination Shares. Pursuant to all such Non-Redemption Agreements, the Company has agreed to issue or cause to be issued to such investors an aggregate of 1,645,596 Post-Combination Shares. In addition, the Company has agreed that it will not utilize any funds from the Trust Account to pay any potential excise taxes that may become due pursuant to the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 upon a redemption of Public Shares, including in connection with the Extension, an initial Business Combination or liquidation of the Company.

At the Extraordinary General Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved the following items: (i) a proposal to amend the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to provide for the Extension (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”); (ii) a proposal to amend the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to eliminate (a) the limitation that the Company shall not redeem Public Shares in an amount that would cause the Company’s net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 following such redemptions and (b) the limitation that the Company shall not consummate an initial Business Combination unless the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon consummation of such Business Combination (the “Redemption Limitation Amendment Proposal”); (iii) a proposal to amend the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association to provide for the right of holders of Class B ordinary shares to convert such Class B ordinary shares into Class A ordinary shares on a one-for-one basis at any time and from time to time at the option of the holder (the “Founder Share Amendment Proposal”, and collectively with the Extension Amendment Proposal and the Redemption Limitation Amendment Proposal, the “Articles Amendment Proposals”); (iv) a proposal to amend the investment management trust agreement, dated as of October 28, 2021, by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, to provide for the Extension (the “Trust Amendment”, and such proposal, the “Trust Amendment Proposal”); (v) a proposal to re-appoint Michael Browning to the board of directors to serve until the third annual general meeting of shareholders following the Extraordinary General Meeting or until his successor is elected and qualified; and (vi) a proposal to ratify the selection by the Company’s audit committee of Marcum LLP to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023.

Effective upon the approval of the Articles Amendment Proposals and the Trust Amendment Proposal, on August 1, 2023, (i) the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association were amended pursuant to the resolutions set forth in the Articles Amendment Proposals, and (ii) the Company entered into the Trust Amendment with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as trustee.

On August 1, 2023, in connection with and following the approval of the Articles Amendment Proposals and the Trust Amendment Proposal, (i) holders of 6,594,414 Class B ordinary shares voluntarily elected to convert such Class B ordinary shares to Class A ordinary shares, on a one-for-one basis, in accordance with the Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association as amended pursuant to the Articles Amendment Proposals (collectively, the “Class B Conversion”), and (ii) the Public Shareholders elected to redeem 15,498,302 Class A ordinary shares at a redemption price of approximately $10.41 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $161.3 million (the “Redemption”). After the satisfaction of the Redemption, the balance in the Trust Account was approximately $113.2 million. Upon completion of the Class B Conversion followed by the Redemption, 17,473,772 Class A ordinary shares and one Class B ordinary share remain issued and outstanding.

Overview

We are a blank check company incorporated on February 10, 2021 as a Cayman Islands exempted company. Our business purpose is to effect a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (referred to in this Quarterly Report as our initial business combination). While we may pursue an initial business combination in any industry, sector or geographic region, we have focused on targets that enable what we call the “Electric Grid 2.0”. We believe the “Electric Grid 2.0” addresses several mega trends that are creating a long tail of value-creating opportunities within the energy storage value-chain, including: (i) climate change and mandated reduction of GHG emissions, with a resulting increase in the share of renewable power generation (and associated grid-stability challenges); (ii) electrification of transportation, AI enabled grid optimization, V2G and V2X technology and smart battery management systems; and (iii) second life use of batteries and end of life battery recycling. Our mission is to partner with companies that have a roadmap to execute on the world’s energy transition to clean energy, and more specifically, those that enable technological advances to facilitate the increasing demand for energy storage. We seek to partner with a company that shares our overarching goal of solving goal seven of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all” while utilizing our combined experience to drive sustainable growth and long-term economic value.

On November 2, 2021, the Company consummated its initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) of 25,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit (each, a “Unit”). Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share (the “Public Shares”) and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. On November 17, 2021 the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering purchased an additional 1,377,660 Units (“Over-Allotment Units”), due to a partial exercise of their over-allotment option, generating gross proceeds of $13,776,600.

Recent Developments

Letter of Intent and Extension

On April 25, 2023, we entered into a non-binding letter of intent with respect to an initial business combination. As a result, pursuant to our amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Articles”), we had until August 2, 2023 to complete an initial business combination, which date has been subsequently extended to May 2, 2024 pursuant to the Extension approved at the Extraordinary General Meeting (in each case as defined and described below). If we are unable to complete our initial business combination by such date (or such later date as may be approved by our shareholders at a meeting called for such purpose at which our shareholders will be given the opportunity to have their Public Shares redeemed for a pro rata portion of the funds in the trust account established in connection with the Initial Public Offering (the “Trust Account”)), we will then liquidate in accordance with the Articles. No assurances can be made that we will successfully negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement for our initial business combination or that we will be successful in completing our initial business combination.

Deferred Underwriting Fee Waivers

On April 17, 2023 and April 27, 2023, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and BofA Securities, Inc., respectively, constituting all of the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering, waived their rights to 100% of the deferred fee payable to such underwriters upon completion of our initial business combination pursuant to the underwriting agreement (collectively, the “Deferred Fee Waivers”).

Non-Redemption Agreements

Subsequent to the period covered by this Quarterly Report, on July 25, 2023, we entered into one or more agreements (the “Non-Redemption Agreements”) with one or more unaffiliated third parties in exchange for them each agreeing not to redeem an aggregate of 760,000 Public Shares in connection with certain proposals considered and voted upon at the Extraordinary General Meeting, in exchange for our agreeing to issue or cause to be issued to each such investor 138,000 Class A ordinary shares (“Post-Combination Shares”) at the time of our initial business combination. We have since entered into additional Non-Redemption Agreements with unaffiliated third parties on the same or similar terms reflecting the above ratio of non-redeemed Public Shares to Post-Combination Shares. Pursuant to all such Non-Redemption Agreements, we have agreed to issue or cause to be issued to such investors an aggregate of 1,645,596 Post-Combination Shares. In addition, we have agreed that we will not utilize any funds from the Trust Account to pay any potential excise taxes that may become due pursuant to the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the “IR Act”) upon a redemption of Public Shares, including in connection with the Extension, an initial business combination or our liquidation.

Extraordinary General Meeting

Subsequent to the period covered by this Quarterly Report, on August 1, 2023, we held an extraordinary general meeting in lieu of the 2023 annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”). At the Extraordinary General Meeting, our shareholders approved the following items: (i) a proposal to amend the Articles to extend the date by which we must consummate an initial business combination from August 2, 2023 to May 2, 2024, or such earlier date as determined by our board of directors, for a total extension of up to nine months (collectively, the “Extension”, and such proposal, the “Extension Amendment Proposal”); (ii) a proposal to amend the Articles to eliminate (a) the limitation that we shall not redeem Public Shares in an amount that would cause our net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 following such redemptions and (b) the limitation that we shall not consummate an initial business combination unless we have net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 upon consummation of such business combination (the “Redemption Limitation Amendment Proposal”); (iii) a proposal to amend the Articles to provide for the right of holders of Class B ordinary shares to convert such Class B ordinary shares into Class A ordinary shares on a one-for-one basis at any time and from time to time at the option of the holder (the “Founder Share Amendment Proposal”, and collectively with the Extension Amendment Proposal and the Redemption Limitation Amendment Proposal, the “Articles Amendment Proposals”); (iv) a proposal to amend the investment management trust agreement, dated as of October 28, 2021, by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, to provide for the Extension (the “Trust Amendment”, and such proposal, the “Trust Amendment Proposal”); (v) a proposal to re-appoint Michael Browning to our board of directors to serve until the third annual general meeting of shareholders following the Extraordinary General Meeting or until his successor is elected and qualified; and (vi) a proposal to ratify the selection by our audit committee of Marcum LLP to serve as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023.

Effective upon the approval of the Articles Amendment Proposals and the Trust Amendment Proposal, on August 1, 2023, (i) the Articles were amended pursuant to the resolutions set forth in the Articles Amendment Proposals, and (ii) we entered into the Trust Amendment with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as trustee.

On August 1, 2023, in connection with and following the approval of the Articles Amendment Proposals and the Trust Amendment Proposal, (i) holders of 6,594,414 Class B ordinary shares voluntarily elected to convert such Class B ordinary shares to Class A ordinary shares, on a one-for-one basis, in accordance with the Articles as amended pursuant to the Articles Amendment Proposals (collectively, the “Class B Conversion”), and (ii) our public shareholders elected to redeem 15,498,302 Class A ordinary shares at a redemption price of approximately $10.41 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $161.3 million (the “Redemption”). After the satisfaction of the Redemption, the balance in the Trust Account was approximately $113.2 million. Upon completion of the Class B Conversion followed by the Redemption, 17,473,772 Class A ordinary shares and one Class B ordinary share remain issued and outstanding.

Nasdaq Notice

Subsequent to the period covered by this Quarterly Report, on August 18, 2023, we received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that we were not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”) due to a delay in filing this Quarterly Report with the SEC. The Notice was only a notification of deficiency, not of imminent delisting, and had no effect on the listing or trading of our securities on the Nasdaq Global Market. Upon the filing of this Quarterly Report, we expect to regain compliance with the Rule.

Results of Operations

We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities since February 10, 2021 (inception) have been organizational activities and those necessary to prepare for the Initial Public Offering and, subsequent to the Initial Public Offering, the search for a target for our initial business combination and the completion of the Extension. We do not expect to generate any operating revenues until after completion of our initial business combination. We generate non-operating income in the form of dividend income, interest income or gains on investments on the cash and investments held in the Trust Account. Our expenses have increased substantially after the closing of the Initial Public Offering. We incur expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.

For the three months ended June 30, 2023, we had net income of $1,484,107, which resulted from interest and dividend income on investments held in the Trust Account of $3,119,865 and a gain on waiver of deferred underwriting commissions by underwriter of $456,993, offset in part by operating costs of $988,137, and loss on the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement of $1,104,614.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, we had net income of $8,841,557, which resulted from gains on the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $8,861,888, interest and dividend income on investments held in the Trust Account of $312,613, and the gain on the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement of $50,123, offset in part by unrealized losses on investments held in the Trust Account of $23,484 and operating costs of $359,583

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, we had net income of $2,910,939, which resulted from interest and dividend income on investments held in the Trust Account of $5,963,397 and a gain on waiver of deferred underwriting commissions by underwriter of $456,993, offset in part by loss on the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $648,431, operating costs of $1,592,918, and loss on the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement of $1,268,102.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we had net income of $8,967,750, which resulted from gains on the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $9,078,032, gains on the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement of $374,718, interest and dividend income on investments held in the Trust Account of $312,613, and unrealized gains on investments held in the Trust Account of $2,900, offset in part by operating costs of $800,513.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Going Concern

Until the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, our only source of liquidity was an initial purchase of Class B ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (“Founder Shares”), by our Sponsor, for an aggregate of $25,000, and loans from our Sponsor.

On November 2, 2021, we consummated the Initial Public Offering of 25,000,000 Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $250,000,000. On November 12, 2021, the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering partially exercised their over-allotment option and on November 17, 2021, purchased an additional 1,377,660 Over-Allotment Units, generating gross proceeds of $13,776,600.

Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated the sale of 8,150,000 private placement warrants (“Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant in a private placement to our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $8,150,000.

Simultaneously with the closing of the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, we consummated the sale of 275,532 additional Private Placement Warrants (the “Over-Allotment Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Over-Allotment Warrant in a private placement to our Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of $275,532.

A total of $263,776,600 of the proceeds of the sale of the Units in the Initial Public Offering, the Over-Allotment Units, the Over-Allotment Warrants and the Private Placement Warrants were placed in the Trust Account at J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee.

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, net cash used in operating activities was $425,992, which was primarily due to operational costs paid during the period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net cash used in operating activities was $511,961, which was due to gains on the change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $9,078,032, gains on the change in fair value of the forward purchase agreement of $374,718, interest and dividend income on investments held in the Trust Account of $312,613, and unrealized gains on investments held in the Trust Account of $2,900, partially offset by our net income of $8,967,750 and changes in operating assets and liabilities of $288,552.

There were no cash flows from investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

There were no cash flows from financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

As of June 30, 2023, we had marketable securities held in the Trust Account of $273,439,184 consisting of money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations.

As of June 30, 2023, we had cash of $89,542 held outside the Trust Account and a working capital deficit of $1,451,615. We intend to use the funds held outside the Trust Account primarily to identify and evaluate target businesses, perform business due diligence on prospective target businesses, travel to and from the offices, plants or similar locations of prospective target businesses or their representatives or owners, review corporate documents and material agreements of prospective target businesses, and structure, negotiate and complete our initial business combination.

We intend to use substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account, including any amounts representing interest earned on the Trust Account (less taxes payable), to complete our initial business combination. We may withdraw interest income (if any) to pay income taxes, if any. Our annual income tax obligations will depend on the amount of interest and other income earned on the amounts held in the Trust Account. We expect the interest income earned on the amount in the Trust Account (if any) will be sufficient to pay our income taxes. To the extent that our equity or debt is used, in whole or in part, as consideration to complete our initial business combination, the remaining proceeds held in the Trust Account will be used as working capital to finance the operations of the target business or businesses, make other acquisitions and pursue our growth strategies.

We believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business prior to our initial business combination. In order to fund working capital deficiencies or finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial business combination, our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors may, but are not obligated to,

25

loan us funds as may be required. If we complete our initial business combination, we would repay such loaned amounts. In the event that our initial business combination does not close, we may use a portion of the working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay such loaned amounts but no proceeds from the Trust Account would be used for such repayment. Up to $1,500,000 of such loans may be convertible into warrants of the post business combination entity at a price of $1.00 per warrant at the option of the lender. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. The terms of such loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist with respect to such loans. Prior to the completion of our initial business combination, we do not expect to seek loans from parties other than our Sponsor or an affiliate of our Sponsor as we do not believe third parties will be willing to loan such funds and provide a waiver against any and all rights to seek access to funds in the Trust Account.

In connection with the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Update 2014-15, Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, management has determined that if the Company is unable to complete an initial business combination by May 2, 2024 (or such later date as may be approved by the Company’s shareholders at a meeting called for such purpose at which the Company’s shareholders will be given the opportunity to have their Public Shares redeemed for a pro rata portion of the funds in the Trust Account), then the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating. In addition, the cash held outside the Trust Account is not expected to be sufficient for the Company to operate for the next 12 months from the issuance of the condensed financial statements. The expected liquidity concerns, date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the date that the condensed financial statements are issued. No adjustments have been made to the carrying amounts of assets or liabilities should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The Company intends to complete an initial business combination before the mandatory liquidation date or obtain approval for an extension.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The preparation of condensed financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. We have identified the following critical accounting policies:

Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption

All of the 26,377,660 Class A ordinary shares sold as part of the Units in the Initial Public Offering and the partial exercise of the over-allotment option contain a redemption feature which allows for the redemption of such Public Shares in connection with the Company’s liquidation, if there is a shareholder vote or tender offer in connection with an initial business combination and in connection with certain amendments to the Articles. In accordance with ASC 480-10-S99, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company require ordinary shares subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity. Therefore, all Public Shares have been classified outside of permanent equity.

The Company recognizes changes in redemption value immediately as they occur and adjusts the carrying value of redeemable ordinary shares to equal the redemption value at the end of each reporting period. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of redeemable ordinary shares are affected by charges against additional paid-in capital and accumulated deficit. The redemption value of the redeemable ordinary shares as of June 30, 2023 increased as the income earned on the Trust Account exceeds the Company’s expected dissolution expenses (up to $100,000). As such, the Company recorded an increase in the carrying amount of the redeemable ordinary shares of $5,963,397 as of June 30, 2023.

Net Income Per Ordinary Share

Net income per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. Remeasurement associated with the redeemable Class A ordinary shares is excluded from net income per share as the redemption value approximates fair value. Therefore, the net income per share calculation allocates income and losses shared pro rata between Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. As a result, the calculated net income per share is the same for Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. The Company has not considered the effect of the warrants sold in the Initial Public Offering, the partial exercise of the over-allotment option and private placements to purchase an aggregate of 21,614,362 shares in the

26

calculation of diluted net income per share, since the exercise of the warrants is contingent upon the occurrence of future events. As a result, diluted net income per share is the same as basic income per share for the periods presented.

Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives in accordance with ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as assets or liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value on the grant date and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. Derivative instruments are classified in the condensed balance sheets as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement or conversion of the instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

Recent Accounting Standards

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s condensed financial statements.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Commitments and Contractual Obligations

Office Space and Administrative Support

We have an agreement to pay EWI Capital SPAC I LLC, an affiliate of our Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Sponsor (“EWI”), a monthly fee of $30,000 for office space and administrative support. We began incurring these fees on October 29, 2021 and will continue to incur these fees monthly until the earlier of the completion of the initial business combination or our liquidation.

Forward Purchase Agreement

Pursuant to a forward purchase agreement entered into in connection with the Initial Public Offering, EWI has subscribed to purchase up to 2,000,000 units for $10.00 per unit, or up to $20,000,000, in a private placement to close substantially concurrently with the closing of our initial business combination. We will determine in our sole discretion the specific number of units that we will sell to EWI, if any, subject to the terms of the forward purchase agreement.

Registration Rights

The holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of working capital loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issued upon conversion of working capital loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement signed on the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities are entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to consummation of an initial business combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements. Pursuant to the forward purchase agreement with EWI, we have agreed that the forward purchase securities will be entitled to registration rights pursuant to the registration rights agreement.

Underwriting Agreement and Deferred Fees

The underwriters of the Initial Public Offering were entitled to a deferred fee of $9,232,181 that would become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that we complete our initial business combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement. Pursuant to the Deferred Fee Waivers, on April 17, 2023 and April 27, 2023 the underwriters of the Initial Public Offering have waived their rights to 100% of the deferred fee.

27

Non-Redemption Agreements

Pursuant to the Non-Redemption Agreements entered into on and after July 25, 2023, we have agreed to issue or cause to be issued to such investors party thereto an aggregate of 1,645,596 Post-Combination Shares. In addition, we have agreed that we will not utilize any funds from the Trust Account to pay any potential excise taxes that may become due pursuant to the IR Act upon a redemption of Public Shares, including in connection with the Extension, an initial business combination or our liquidation.

JOBS Act

On April 5, 2012, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) was signed into law. The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the JOBS Act and are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We elected to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As a result, our condensed financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

As an “emerging growth company,” we are not required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the condensed financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis), and (iv) disclose comparisons of the chief executive officer’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of the Initial Public Offering or until we otherwise no longer qualify as an “emerging growth company.”

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of June 30, 2023. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer have concluded that during the period covered by this Quarterly Report our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during the most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

28

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

None.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

Factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in this Quarterly Report are any of the risks described in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Any of these factors could result in a significant or material adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. Additional risk factors not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business or results of operations. Except as set forth below, as of the date of this Quarterly Report, there have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 filed with the SEC on April 7, 2023.

If we seek shareholder approval of our initial business combination, our initial shareholders, officers and directors have agreed to vote in favor of such initial business combination, regardless of how our public shareholders vote.

In connection with the Extension, we redeemed 15,498,302 Public Shares tendered for redemption by our public shareholders, and 10,879,358 Public Shares remain outstanding. Our initial shareholders, directors and officers collectively hold 6,594,415 Founder Shares, representing approximately 37.7% of our issued and outstanding ordinary shares. The Articles provide that, if we seek shareholder approval of an initial business combination, such initial business combination will be approved if we receive the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares voted at such meeting, including the Founder Shares. As a result, in addition to the Founder Shares, we would need 2,142,472 Public Shares, or approximately 19.7% of the Public Shares currently issued and outstanding (assuming all issued and outstanding shares are voted), or no Public Shares (assuming only the minimum number of shares representing a quorum are voted) to be voted in favor of an initial business combination in order to have such initial business combination approved. Accordingly, if we seek shareholder approval of our initial business combination, the agreement by our initial shareholders, officers and directors to vote in favor of our initial business combination will increase the likelihood that we will receive the requisite shareholder approval for such initial business combination and may result in the approval of an initial business combination even if no Public Shares are voted in favor of such initial business combination.

The ability of our public shareholders to exercise redemption rights with respect to a large number of our Public Shares, and the completed redemptions of Public Shares in connection with the Extension, could increase the probability that our initial business combination would not be consummated and that you would have to wait for liquidation in order to redeem your Public Shares.

If our business combination agreement requires us to use a portion of the cash in the Trust Account to pay the purchase price, or requires us to have a minimum amount of cash at closing, the probability that our initial business combination would not be consummated is increased. This risk may be increasingly prevalent given recent high levels of redemptions among other special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”) seeking shareholder approval of certain charter amendments or completing their initial business combinations. This risk is magnified because we paid approximately $161.3 million out of the Trust Account to shareholders that tendered their Public Shares for redemption in connection with the Extension. If our initial business combination is unsuccessful, you would not receive your pro rata portion of the Trust Account until we liquidate the Trust Account. If you are in need of immediate liquidity, you could attempt to sell your shares in the open market; however, at such time our shares may trade at a discount to the pro rata amount per share in the Trust Account. In either situation, you may suffer a material loss on your investment or lose the benefit of funds expected in connection with our redemption until we liquidate or you are able to sell your shares in the open market.

A new 1% U.S. federal excise tax could be imposed on us in connection with redemptions by us of our shares, including in connection with the Extension.

On August 16, 2022, the IR Act was signed into federal law. The IR Act provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases (including redemptions) of stock by publicly traded U.S. domestic corporations and certain U.S. domestic subsidiaries of publicly traded foreign corporations occurring on or after January 1, 2023. The excise tax is imposed on the repurchasing corporation itself, not its shareholders from which shares are repurchased. The amount of the excise tax is generally 1% of the fair market value of the shares repurchased at the time of the repurchase. However, for purposes of calculating the excise tax, repurchasing corporations are permitted to net the fair market value of certain new stock issuances against the fair market value of stock repurchases

29

during the same taxable year. In addition, certain exceptions apply to the excise tax. The U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) has been given authority to provide regulations and other guidance to carry out and prevent the abuse or avoidance of the excise tax.

On December 27, 2022, the Treasury released Notice 2023-2, which provides taxpayers with interim guidance on the excise tax that may be relied upon until the Internal Revenue Service issues proposed Treasury regulations on such matter. Notice 2023-2 includes as one of its exceptions to the excise tax a distribution in complete liquidation of a “covered corporation”, to which Sec. 331 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), applies (so long as Sec. 332(a) of the Code also does not also apply).

Although we were incorporated in the Cayman Islands and are currently not a “covered corporation”, there is a possibility that we may acquire a U.S. domestic corporation, redomicile as a U.S. domestic corporation or engage in a transaction in which a U.S. domestic corporation becomes our parent or our affiliate. Although it remains uncertain whether, and/or to what extent, the excise tax could apply to any redemptions of our Public Shares after December 31, 2022 if we were to become a “covered corporation” in the future, including any redemptions in connection with the Extension, our initial business combination or in the event we do not consummate our initial business combination by May 2, 2024, we would not expect the excise tax to apply to redemptions of our Public Shares that occur during a taxable year in which we completely liquidate under Sec. 331 of the Code.

If we were to become a “covered corporation” in the future, there is a possibility that any redemption or other repurchase that occurs after December 31, 2022 may be subject to the excise tax, including in connection with our initial business combination, certain amendments to the Articles (including in connection with the Extension) or otherwise. Whether and to what extent we would be subject to the excise tax would depend on a number of factors, including (i) the fair market value of the redemptions and repurchases in connection with the initial business combination, certain amendments to the Articles (including in connection with the Extension) or otherwise, (ii) the structure of the initial business combination, (iii) the nature and amount of any “PIPE” or other equity issuances in connection with the initial business combination (or otherwise issued not in connection with the initial business combination but issued within the same taxable year of the initial business combination) and (iv) the content of regulations and other guidance from the Treasury. In addition, because the excise tax would be payable by the corporation and not by the redeeming holder, the mechanics of any required payment of the excise tax have not been determined. However, we have agreed that we will not utilize any funds from the Trust Account to pay any potential excise taxes that may become due pursuant to the IR Act upon a redemption of Public Shares, including in connection with the Extension, an initial business combination or our liquidation. The foregoing could cause a reduction in the cash available on hand to complete our initial business combination and in our ability to complete our initial business combination.

Changes in laws or regulations, or in how such laws or regulations are interpreted or applied, or a failure to comply with any laws, regulations, interpretations or applications, may adversely affect our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our initial business combination, investments and results of operations.

We are subject to laws and regulations, and interpretations and applications of such laws and regulations, enacted by national, regional and local governments. In particular, we are required to comply with certain SEC and other legal requirements. Compliance with, and monitoring of, applicable laws and regulations, and interpretations and applications of such laws and regulations, may be difficult, time consuming and costly. Those laws and regulations and their interpretation and application may also change from time to time and those changes could have a material adverse effect on our business, investments and results of operations. In addition, a failure to comply with applicable laws or regulations, as interpreted and applied, could have a material adverse effect on our business, including our ability to negotiate and complete our initial business combination, investments and results of operations.

On March 30, 2022, the SEC issued proposed rules (the “SPAC Rule Proposals”) relating to, among other items, enhancing disclosures in business combination transactions involving SPACs and private operating companies; amending the financial statement requirements applicable to transactions involving shell companies; the use of projections by SPACs in SEC filings in connection with proposed business combination transactions; the potential liability of certain participants in proposed business combination transactions; and the extent to which SPACs could become subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act, including a proposed rule that would provide a safe harbor for such companies from the definition of “investment company” under the Investment Company Act, provided certain criteria are satisfied. These rules, if adopted, whether in the form proposed or in revised form, may materially adversely affect our ability to negotiate and complete our initial business combination and may increase the costs and time related thereto.

The need for compliance with the SPAC Rule Proposals may cause us to liquidate the funds in the Trust Account or liquidate the Company at an earlier time than we might otherwise choose. Were we to liquidate the Company, our shareholders would not be able to

30

realize the benefits of owning shares in a successor operating business, including the potential appreciation in the value of our shares and warrants following such a transaction, and our warrants would expire worthless.

If we are deemed to be an investment company for purposes of the Investment Company Act, we would be required to institute burdensome compliance requirements and our activities would be severely restricted and, as a result, we may abandon our efforts to consummate an initial business combination and liquidate.

There is currently uncertainty concerning the applicability of the Investment Company Act to a SPAC, and it is possible that a claim could be made that we have been operating as an unregistered investment company. If we are deemed to be an investment company under the Investment Company Act, our activities would be severely restricted. In addition, we would be subject to burdensome compliance requirements. We do not believe that our principal activities will subject us to regulation as an investment company under the Investment Company Act. However, if we are deemed to be an investment company and subject to compliance with and regulation under the Investment Company Act, we would be subject to additional regulatory burdens and expenses for which we have not allotted funds. As a result, unless we are able to modify our activities so that we would not be deemed an investment company, we would expect to abandon our efforts to complete an initial business combination and instead to liquidate. If we are required to liquidate, our shareholders would not be able to realize the benefits of owning shares in a successor operating business, including the potential appreciation in the value of our shares and warrants following such a transaction, and our warrants would expire worthless.

If we instruct the trustee to liquidate the securities held in the Trust Account and instead to hold the funds in the Trust Account in cash until the earlier of the consummation of an initial business combination or our liquidation, we may be able to mitigate the risk that we could be deemed to be an investment company for purposes of the Investment Company Act. Following the liquidation of securities in the Trust Account, we may receive minimal interest, if any, on the funds held in the Trust Account, which may reduce the dollar amount our public shareholders would receive upon any redemption or liquidation of the Company.

The funds in the Trust Account have, since the Initial Public Offering, been held only in U.S. government treasury obligations with a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds investing solely in U.S. government treasury obligations and meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act. However, to mitigate the risk of us being deemed to be an unregistered investment company (including under the subjective test of Section 3(a)(1)(A) of the Investment Company Act) and thus subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act, we may, at any time, instruct the trustee with respect to the Trust Account to liquidate the U.S. government treasury obligations or money market funds held in the Trust Account and thereafter to hold all funds in the Trust Account in cash (or in an interest-bearing demand deposit account) at a national bank until the earlier of consummation of an initial business combination or liquidation of the Company. Following such liquidation of the securities held in the Trust Account, we may receive minimal interest, if any, on the funds held in the Trust Account. However, interest previously earned on the funds held in the Trust Account still may be released to us to pay our taxes, if any, and certain other expenses as permitted. As a result, any decision to liquidate the securities held in the Trust Account and thereafter to hold all funds in the Trust Account in cash may reduce the dollar amount our public shareholders would receive upon any redemption or liquidation of the Company.

The longer that the funds in the Trust Account are held in short-term U.S. government treasury obligations or in money market funds invested exclusively in such securities, the greater the risk that we may be considered an unregistered investment company, in which case we may be required to liquidate the Company. Accordingly, we may determine, in our discretion, to liquidate the securities held in the Trust Account at any time and instead hold all funds in the Trust Account in cash (or in an interest-bearing demand deposit account) at a national bank, which may further reduce the dollar amount our public shareholders would receive upon any redemption or liquidation of the Company. As of the date of this Quarterly Report, we have not yet made any such determination to liquidate the securities held in the Trust Account.

Were we considered to be a “foreign person,” we might not be able to complete an initial business combination with a U.S. target company if such initial business combination is subject to U.S. foreign investment regulations and review by a U.S. government entity such as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”), or ultimately prohibited.

Certain federally licensed businesses in the United States, such as broadcasters and airlines, may be subject to rules or regulations that limit foreign ownership. In addition, CFIUS is an interagency committee authorized to review certain transactions involving foreign investment in the United States by foreign persons in order to determine the effect of such transactions on the national security of the United States. Were we considered to be a “foreign person” under such rules and regulations, any proposed business combination between us and a U.S. business engaged in a regulated industry or which may affect national security could be subject to such foreign

ownership restrictions and/or CFIUS review. The scope of CFIUS was expanded by the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (“FIRRMA”) to include certain non-controlling investments in sensitive U.S. businesses and certain acquisitions of real estate even with no underlying U.S. business. FIRRMA, and subsequent implementing regulations that are now in force, also subject certain categories of investments to mandatory filings. If a potential initial business combination with a U.S. business falls within the scope of foreign ownership restrictions, we may be unable to consummate an initial business combination with such business. In addition, if a potential initial business combination falls within CFIUS’s jurisdiction, we may be required to make a mandatory filing or determine to submit a voluntary notice to CFIUS, or to proceed with the initial business combination without notifying CFIUS and risk CFIUS intervention, before or after closing the initial business combination.

If CFIUS has jurisdiction over our initial business combination, CFIUS may decide to block or delay our initial business combination, impose conditions to mitigate national security concerns with respect to such initial business combination or order us to divest all or a portion of a U.S. business of the combined company if we had proceeded without first obtaining CFIUS clearance. If we were considered to be a “foreign person,” the foreign ownership limitations, and the potential impact of CFIUS, may limit the attractiveness of a transaction with us or prevent us from pursuing certain initial business combination opportunities that we believe would otherwise be beneficial to us and our shareholders. As a result, in such circumstances, the pool of potential targets with which we could complete an initial business combination could be limited and we may be adversely affected in terms of competing with other SPACs that do not have similar foreign ownership issues.

Moreover, the process of government review, whether by CFIUS or otherwise, could be lengthy. Because we have only a limited time to complete our initial business combination, our failure to obtain any required approvals within the requisite time period may require us to liquidate. If we liquidate, our public shareholders may only receive $10.00 per share, and our warrants will expire worthless. This will also cause you to lose any potential investment opportunity in a target company and the chance of realizing future gains on your investment through any price appreciation in the combined company.

Recent increases in inflation and interest rates in the United States and elsewhere could make it more difficult for us to complete our initial business combination.

Recent increases in inflation and interest rates in the United States and elsewhere may lead to increased price volatility for publicly traded securities, including ours, or other national, regional or international economic disruptions, any of which could make it more difficult for us to complete our initial business combination.

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities, Use of Proceeds, and Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities

On August 1, 2023, in connection with and following the approval of the Articles Amendment Proposals and the Trust Amendment Proposal, (i) holders of 6,594,414 Class B ordinary shares voluntarily elected to convert such Class B ordinary shares to Class A ordinary shares, on a one-for-one basis, in accordance with the Articles as amended pursuant to the Articles Amendment Proposals, and (ii) our public shareholders elected to redeem 15,498,302 Class A ordinary shares at a redemption price of approximately $10.41 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $161.3 million. After the satisfaction of the Redemption, the balance in the Trust Account was approximately $113.2 million. Upon completion of the Class B Conversion followed by the Redemption, 17,473,772 Class A ordinary shares and one Class B ordinary share remain issued and outstanding. Notwithstanding the Class B Conversion, the holders of Founder Shares will not be entitled to receive any funds held in the Trust Account with respect to any such converted shares.
