LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II Provides Update Regarding Potential Business Combination


New York, New York, May 25, 2023. As previously announced, LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II, a Delaware corporation (“LF II”) (NASDAQ: LFAC), entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “Letter of Intent”) to enter into a business combination (the “Business Combination”) with a private company (the “LOI Target”) that meets LF II’s acquisition criteria and business strategy in February 2023.


The LOI Target is a profitable US-based company in the packaging industry that serves customers in the spirits, beverage, beer and food industries. The LOI Target provides custom solutions to leading brands and has amassed a blue-chip customer base with long term take-or-pay contracts. Additionally, the LOI Target has entered into supply agreements that provide greater predictability of EBITDA and free cash flow. Lastly, the LOI Target operates with state-of-the-art, flexible manufacturing capabilities, which provide it with differentiated flexibility to meet its customers’ needs.


LF II believes that a Business Combination with the LOI Target will help accelerate the LOI Target's growth and allow it to become a national leader in its industry.


LF II is currently seeking an amendment to its charter to provide for additional one-month extensions (until November 19, 2023) in order to extend the date by which LF II must consummate an initial business combination. Entering into the Business Combination or another business combination is subject to, among other matters, the negotiation of a definitive transaction agreement and SEC review of the proxy statement/prospectus to be filed in connection with obtaining approval of the transaction by LF II’s stockholders. If LF II is unable to complete an initial business combination by such extended date, LF II may be forced to liquidate.


Additional Information and Where to Find It


LF II has mailed to its stockholders of record as of May 12, 2023 a definitive proxy statement (the “Charter Amendment Proxy Statement”) for a special meeting of stockholders on June 13, 2023 to (i): increase the number of one-month extensions of the deadline to complete an initial business combination from six to nine (the three additional one-month extensions, the “Additional Extensions”); and (ii) provide that the monthly extension payment per one-month extension of the deadline to complete an initial business combination for the Additional Extensions only is $0.00 per share of LF II’s Class A common stock (the “Class A common stock”), par value $0.0001 per share without changing the monthly extension payment for the current extensions payable, if exercised, on June 19, 2023 and July 19, 2023, which will remain $0.04 per Class A common share sold in LF II’s initial public offering. Stockholders may obtain a free copy of the Charter Amendment Proxy Statement, as well as other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), without charge, at the SEC’s website (www.sec.gov) or by directing a request to: 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 500, Dallas, TX 75201, or to Morrow Sodali LLC, LF II’s proxy solicitor, by calling (800) 662-5200, or banks and brokers can call collect at (203) 658-9400, or by emailing LFAC.info@investor.morrowsodali.com.


If a definitive agreement is entered into in connection with the proposed Business Combination, LF II intends to file a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus (the “Deal Proxy Statement/Prospectus”) with the SEC. A definitive Deal Proxy Statement/Prospectus will be mailed to stockholders of LF II as of a record date to be established for voting on the proposed transaction. LF II urges its investors and other interested persons to read, when available, the Deal Proxy Statement/Prospectus, as well as other documents filed with the SEC, because these documents will contain important information about the proposed Business Combination. The Deal Proxy Statement/Prospectus, once available, can be obtained without charge at the SEC’s web site (www.sec.gov) or by directing a request to LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 500, Dallas, TX 75201.
