The foregoing (including Exhibit 99.1) is being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01, and it, along with information contained on Appreciate’s website, or any of their affiliates (or linked therein or otherwise connected thereto), will not be deemed to be filed, or incorporated by reference into, this Current Report on Form 8-K, for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise be subject to the liabilities of that section, nor will it be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements about the anticipated benefits of the Company and the financial condition, results of operations, earnings outlook, projections and prospects of Appreciate. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “plan,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “outlook,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “project,” “continue,” “could,” “may,” “might,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “should,” “would” and other similar words and expressions, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.

 

The forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations of the management of the Company, as applicable and are inherently subject to uncertainties and changes in circumstances and their potential effects and speak only as of the date of such statement. There can be no assurance that future developments will be those that have been anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those discussed and identified in public filings made with the SEC by the Company and include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

●       expectations regarding the Company’s strategies and future financial performance, including its future business plans or objectives, prospective performance and opportunities and competitors, revenues, products and services, pricing, operating expenses, market trends, liquidity, cash flows and uses of cash, capital expenditures, and the Company’s ability to invest in growth initiatives and pursue acquisition opportunities;

 

●       our limited operating history as a combined company makes it difficult to evaluate our current business and future prospects;

 

●       our management team’s limited experience managing a public company;

 

1

 

 

●       the highly competitive industry that the Company serves, which is also subject to rapid technological and regulatory changes;

 

●       unfavorable market conditions, market uncertainty such as an increase in interest rates, economic downturns and/or public health outbreaks such as the COVID-19 pandemic;

 

●       failure to recover adequately on charges against property owners, subcontractors or suppliers for payment or performance;

 

●       the loss of one or more key customers, or a reduction in their demand for the Company’s services;

 

●       the seasonality of the Company’s business, which is affected by the spending patterns of the Company’s customers, as well as weather conditions and natural catastrophes;

 

●       the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain its management and key employees;

 

●       the outcome of any known and unknown litigation and regulatory proceedings including any legal proceedings that may be instituted against the Company following the Business Combination;

 

●       system and information technology interruptions, data security breaches and /or other cyber-related risks;

 

●       failure to comply with environmental laws;

 

●       the Company’s need for additional capital and a significant amount of debt, service provider deferral agreements and debt defaults, which could adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations or could affect its ability to access capital markets in the future, and which may prevent the Company from engaging in transactions that might benefit it due to its debt’s restrictive covenants; and

 

●       The Company’s status as a “controlled company” within the meaning of the Nasdaq rules and, as a result, qualifying for exemptions from certain corporate governance requirements, as a result of which you will not have the same protections afforded to stockholders of companies that are subject to such requirements.

 

Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or should any of the assumptions made by the management of the Company prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

 

All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning the Business Combination or other matters addressed in this Current Report on Form 8-K and attributable to the Company or any person acting on their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement. Except to the extent required by applicable law or regulation, the Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

 

In addition, statements that the Company “believes” and similar statements reflect the Company’s beliefs and opinions on the relevant subject. These statements are based upon information available to such party as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, and while the Company believes such information forms a reasonable basis for such statements, such information may be limited or incomplete, and these statements should not be read to indicate that the Company has conducted an exhaustive inquiry into, or review of, all potentially available relevant information. These statements are inherently uncertain and investors are cautioned not to unduly rely upon these statements.
