Item 4. Ownership
The responses to Items 5-11 of the cover pages of this Schedule 13G are incorporated herein by reference.
As of December 31, 2021, the Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own 8,527,500 of the Issuer’s Class B Ordinary Shares, representing 19.8% of the Issuer’s total Class A and Class B Ordinary Shares issued and outstanding. The Class B Ordinary Shares are automatically convertible into the Issuer’s Class A Ordinary Shares at the time of the Issuer’s initial business combination on a one-for-one basis, subject to adjustment, as more fully described under the heading “Description of Securities—Founder Shares” in the Issuer’s registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-252940).
The Reporting Person is the record holder of such Class B Ordinary Shares. There are three managers on the Reporting Person’s board of managers: Tidjane Thiam, Adam Gishen and Abhishek Bhatia. Each manager has one vote, and the approval of a majority of the members of the board of managers is required to approve an action of the Reporting Person. Under the so-called “rule of three,” if voting and dispositive decisions regarding an entity’s securities are made by three or more individuals, and a voting and dispositive decision requires the approval of a majority of those individuals, then none of the individuals is deemed a beneficial owner of the entity’s securities. This is the situation with regard to the Reporting Person. Based upon the foregoing analysis, no individual manager of the Reporting Person ex ercises voting or dispositive control over any of the securities held by the Reporting person even those in which he directly holds a pecuniary interest. Accordingly, none of them will be deemed to have or share beneficial ownership of such shares and, for the avoidance of doubt, expressly disclaims any such beneficial interest to the extent of any pecuniary interest he may have therein, directly or indirectly.
Item 5. Ownership of Five Percent or Less of a Class.
Item 6. Ownership of More than Five Percent on Behalf of Another Person.
Item 7. Identification and Classification of the Subsidiary Which Acquired the Security Being Reported on By the Parent Holding Company.
Item 8. Identification and Classification of Members of the Group.
Item 9. Notice of Dissolution of Group.
Item 10. Certification.
After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
