GCT Semiconductor, Inc. 29 Summary Risk Factors Risks Related to GCT If the 5G market does not develop or develops more slowly than expected, or if GCT fails to accurately predict market require men ts or market demand for 5G solutions, GCT’s financial performance will be adversely affected. GCT’s products target primarily certain segments in the 5G markets, including fixed wireless access, mobile broadband, and ma chi ne - to - machine (M2M) applications, and if these market segments do not develop or grow as anticipated, or if GCT encounters difficulties in penetrating these market segments, GCT’s financial performance will be adve rse ly affected. GCT may not be able to achieve design wins from customers, including OEMs and ODMs, for its products, which will adversely af fec t its ability to generate revenue. GCT’s OEM and ODM customers may not be able to generate sufficient businesses or compete effectively in their markets, includ ing sales to telecommunications operators and retail distributors, which will indirectly affect GCT’s financial performance. GCT may encounter difficulties or challenges in meeting its obligations under its 5G development agreements with major custom ers , which may adversely affect its ability to generate revenue. GCT is operating in a highly competitive market and may not be able to compete effectively to win sufficient business with it s c ustomers. The average selling prices of semiconductor solutions in GCT’s markets have historically decreased over time and will likely do so in the future, which could harm GCT’s revenue and gross profits. GCT may fail to forecast customer demand for GCT’s products accurately, which may result in product shortages, delays in pro duc t shipments or excess or insufficient product inventory. Any increase in the manufacturing cost of GCT’s products could reduce GCT’s gross margins and operating profit. GCT may not be able to secure sufficient manufacturing capacity to develop and manufacture its products and meet its customer s’ demand. GCT does not have supply agreements with its major semiconductor foundries, and if such foundries do not provide sufficient c apa city to GCT, GCT may not be able to secure capacity from other third - party foundries timely or at all. The complexity of GCT’s semiconductor solutions could result in unforeseen delays or expenses from undetected defects, errors or bugs in hardware or software, which could reduce the market acceptance for GCT’s new semiconductor solutions. The semiconductor and communications industries are cyclical and have historically experienced significant fluctuations with pro longed downturns, which could impact GCT’s operating results, financial condition and cash flows. GCT relies on a small number of customers for a significant percentage of its revenue, and the loss of, or a reduction in, or der s from these customers could result in a substantial decline in its revenue. The wireless and consumer electronics industry is characterized by short product cycles, significant fluctuations in supply a nd demand, and rapidly changing technologies, and GCT may not be able to meet these challenges successfully or consistently. A portion of GCT’s sales continues to rely on products serving the 4G markets notwithstanding the growth of the 5G market, an d i f the decline of 4G markets outpaces the growth of 5G markets for GCT’s product, GCT’s sales will be negatively impacted. Changes in current laws or the imposition of new laws regulating the wireless networks and radio frequency emission could imp ede the sale of GCT’s products or otherwise harm GCT’s business. Changes in, and the regulatory implementation of, tariffs or other government trade policies or political conditions could re duc e demand for GCT’s products, limit its ability to sell its products to certain customers or its ability to comply with applicable laws and regulations. GCT’s failure protect its intellectual property rights adequately could impair its ability to compete effectively or to defen d o urselves from litigation. The enforcement and protection of GCT’s intellectual property may be expensive, could fail to prevent misappropriation or una uth orized use of its intellectual property, could result in the loss of its ability to enforce one or more patents, and could be adversely affected by changes in patent laws, by laws in certain foreign jurisdictions that may not eff ect ively protect GCT’s intellectual property and by ineffective enforcement of laws in such jurisdictions. GCT may be subject to claims of infringement or misappropriation of third - party intellectual property rights, and any such infri ngement or other intellectual property claim made against GCT, whether or not it has merit, could be time - consuming, result in costly litigation, cause product delays, or require us to enter into royalty or licensing agreements. GCT’s business depends on international customers, suppliers and operations in Asia, which subjects it to additional risks, i ncl uding increased complexity and costs of managing international operations and geopolitical instability. GCT’s business operations could be significantly harmed by natural disasters or global epidemics. GCT may experience a decrease in market demand due to uncertain economic conditions in the United States and in international ma rkets, which has been further exacerbated by the concerns of terrorism, war and social and political instability. GCT’s ability to compete is affected by certain regulatory development that historically has benefited GCT’s products, includ ing regulatory restrictions against distribution of similar products by Chinese companies, and changes in such regulatory requirement may adversely affect GCT’s sales. GCT may not be able to manage the growth of its business, including the hiring of a sufficient number of qualified personnel and enhancing its operational infrastructures. GCT may not be able to raise a sufficient amount of capital to fund and support its business operations. GCT’s indebtedness could adversely affect its cash flows and limit its flexibility to raise additional capital. Being a public company will increase GCT’s administrative costs and divert its management’s attention.



GCT Semiconductor, Inc. 30 Summary Risk Factors Risks Related to Concord and the Business Combination Directors and officers of Concord have potential conflicts of interest in recommending that stockholders vote in favor of app rov al of the Business Combination. Concord stockholders will have a reduced ownership and voting interest after the Business Combination and will exercise less inf luence over management. The ability of Concord stockholders to exercise redemption rights with respect to a large number of shares could deplete Conc ord ’s trust account prior to the Business Combination and thereby diminish the amount of working capital of the ultimate holding company after the transaction (“GCT Pubco”). Concord’s initial stockholders, directors, officers, advisors, and their affiliates may purchase shares or public warrants fr om public stockholders, which may reduce the public “float” of Concord’s Class A common stock. The Business Combination may not be completed by Concord’s business combination deadline in its organizational documents, as ame nded to date, and Concord may fail to obtain an extension of the business combination deadline. There can be no assurance that the contemplated transaction will achieve GCT’s objectives of providing the company with suffi cie nt capital, and if GCT requires additional capital to fund its operations or expected growth, there can be no assurance that GCT will be able to obtain such funds on attractive terms or at all, and GCT Pubco stockholders may exp erience dilution as a result. GCT and Concord have incurred and will incur substantial costs in connection with the Business Combination and related transa cti ons, such as legal, accounting, consulting, and financial advisory fees. While GCT and Concord work to complete the Business Combination, management’s focus and resources may be diverted from operat ion al matters and other strategic opportunities. If PIPE financing is not identified by GCT and Concord, or if identified, is consummated on different terms than those curren tly contemplated or fails to close and sufficient stockholders exercise their redemption rights in connection with the Business Combination, Concord may lack sufficient funds to consummate the Business Combination. GCT’s operations may be restricted during the pendency of the Business Combination pursuant to terms of the Business Combinat ion Agreement. The announcement of the Business Combination could disrupt GCT’s relationships with its customers, suppliers and others, as w ell as its operating results and business generally. Uncertainty about the effect of the Business Combination may affect GCT’s ability to retain key employees and integrate manag eme nt structures and may negatively impact its management, strategy and results of operations. The consummation of the Business Combination is subject to a number of conditions and if those conditions are not satisfied o r w aived, the Business Combination Agreement may be terminated in accordance with its terms and the Business Combination may not be completed. GCT Pubco may incur successor liabilities due to conduct arising prior to the completion of the Business Combination. Subsequent to the completion of the Business Combination, GCT Pubco may be exposed to unknown or contingent liabilities and m ay be required to take write - downs or write - offs, restructuring and impairment or other charges that could have a significant negative effect on its financial condition, results of operations a nd the price of its securities, which could cause you to lose some or all of your investment. The obligations associated with being a public company will involve significant expenses and will require significant resourc es and management attention, which may divert from GCT Pubco’s business operations. GCT’s management and current resources may not successfully or effectively manage the transition to a public company. Future sales of common stock after the consummation of the Business Combination may cause the market price of GCT Pubco’s com mon stock to drop significantly, even if GCT’s business is doing well. Following the Business Combination, outstanding warrants will become exercisable for GCT Pubco’s common stock, which would in cre ase the number of shares eligible for future resale in the public market and result in dilution to GCT Pubco’s stockholders. GCT Pubco’s audited financial position and results of operations may differ materially from the unaudited pro forma financial in formation presented to investors. GCT Pubco does not intend to pay cash dividends for the foreseeable future. GCT Pubco may not meet the NYSE’s initial listing criteria, and even if it does, the NYSE may not continue to list GCT Pubco’ s s ecurities on its exchange; which could limit the ability of investors in GCT Pubco to make transactions in GCT Pubco’s securities and subject GCT Pubco to additional trading restrictions. If the Business Combination’s benefits do not meet the expectations of investors or securities analysts, the market price of Con cord’s securities or, following the consummation of the Business Combination, GCT Pubco’s securities, may decline. If securities or industry analysts do not publish research, or publish inaccurate or unfavorable research, about GCT Pubco’s bus iness, the price and trading volume of its securities could decline. There has been no prior public market for GCT’s securities. The stock price of GCT Pubco’s common stock may be volatile or m ay decline regardless of its operating performance, and you may not be able to resell your shares at or above the subscription price. GCT Pubco will have broad discretion in the use of the proceeds from the Business Combination and may not use them effectivel y o r in ways with which the investors agree. Anti - takeover provisions contained in GCT Pubco’s restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws, as well as provisions of Delaware law, could impair a takeover attempt. Claims for indemnification by GCT Pubco’s directors and officers may reduce its available funds to satisfy successful third - part y claims against it and may reduce the amount of money available to it. Legal proceedings may be instituted against the Business Combination, which could delay or prevent or otherwise adversely imp act the Business Combination. Changes in laws or regulations, or a failure to comply with any laws and regulations, may adversely affect GCT’s business, in clu ding its ability to consummate the Business Combination, and results of operations .
