All shares of New Parent Class B Common Stock will automatically convert into New Parent Class A Common Stock at such time as NM ceases to hold thirty percent of the outstanding capital stock of Parent. As a result of receiving New Parent Class B Common Stock, NM or its affiliates will have majority voting control of Parent and NM will receive certain governance and stockholder rights commensurate with its majority stockholder status that have been incorporated into the various provisions of the Parent Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the Voting Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K may be considered “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements herein generally relate to future events or the future financial or operating performance of Parent, the Company, Ludia, or the combined company expected to result from the Proposed Transaction (the “Combined Company”). For example, projections of future financial performance of the Company, Ludia and the Combined Company, expected release dates for games, the business combination of the Company and Ludia, the Company’s ability to leverage its strengths to maximize Ludia’s long-term potential, the Combined Company’s business plan, the Company’s ability to continue its M&A strategy, other projections concerning key performance metrics, the proceeds of the Proposed Transaction and the Combined Company’s expected cash runway, and the potential effects of the Proposed Transaction on Parent and the Combined Company, are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “ should,” “expect,” “ intend,” “ will,” “estimate,” “ anticipate,” “ believe,” “ predict,” “project,” “target,” “plan,” or “potentially” or the negatives of these terms or variations of them or similar terminology. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

 

These forward-looking statements are based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by Parent, the Company and their respective management, as the case may be, are inherently uncertain and subject to material change. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risk and uncertainties. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to, various factors beyond management’s control, including general economic conditions and other risks, uncertainties and factors set forth in the section entitled “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in Parent’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021, and other filings with the SEC, as well as factors associated with companies, such as the Company, that are engaged in the business of mobile game development and publishing, including anticipated trends, growth rates, and challenges in those businesses and in the markets in which they operate, including the factors described in the summary risk factors that will accompany this Current Report on Form 8-K; macroeconomic conditions related to the global COVID-19 pandemic; our ability to integrate the Company’s and Ludia’s business operations; intense competition in the broader entertainment industry and the ability of the Company’s and Ludia’s games to compete with other forms of entertainment; adverse changes to the Company’s and Ludia’s relationships with platforms like the Apple App Store or Google Play Store; our history of net losses, and quarterly and annual fluctuations in our operating results, including net income/loss, where such fluctuations are due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to (i) the timing of contingent consideration payments in connection with acquisitions; (ii) fluctuations in operating expenses, such as sales and marketing; (iii) incremental amortization expenses from acquisitions (which we expect to occur in the case of the Company’s acquisition of Ludia); and (iv) stock-based compensation charges related to equity grants (which may result from the Merger Transactions in connection with Parent’s existing warrants and any related earnout payments); adverse changes to the terms of third-party platforms and advertising channels, which may be unilateral; our ability to develop and launch new games, enhance existing franchises and evolve games into successful franchises; delays in game launches; our free-to-play business model and resulting reliance on a small portion of our users for substantially all our revenues from in-app transactions; adverse changes in our relationships with third-party licensors; disruptions of services; data privacy or data security breaches; adverse changes in the legal and regulatory regimes applicable to the Company and Ludia; the failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Merger Transactions; the Company’s current equityholders’ anticipated significant ownership and voting control of the Combined Company; the amount of redemption requests made by Parent’s public stockholders; Parent’s ability to procure private placement subscriptions in connection with the Proposed Transaction sufficient to satisfy the Company’s business objectives. Nothing in this Current Report on Form 8-K should be regarded as a representation by any person that the forward-looking statements set forth herein will be achieved or that any of the contemplated results of such forward-looking statements will be achieved. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K, which speak only as of the date they are made and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the cautionary statements herein.
