Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

This document contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws with respect to the proposed transaction between G4G and Zero Nox, Inc. (“ZeroNox”). These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “plan,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this document, including but not limited to: (i) actual market adoption and growth rates of electrification technologies for commercial and industrial vehicles; (ii) ZeroNox’s ability to convert trial deployments with truck fleets into sales orders; (iii) delays in design, manufacturing and wide-spread deployment of ZeroNox’s products and technologies; (iv) failure of ZeroNox’s products to perform as expected or any product recalls; (v) ZeroNox’s ability to expand its relationships with OEMs and fleet owners, and its distribution network; (vi) ZeroNox’s ability to develop vehicles of sufficient quality and appeal on schedule and on large scale; (vii) ZeroNox’s ability to raise capital as needed; (viii) management’s ability to manage growth; (ix) the macroeconomic conditions and challenges in the markets in which ZeroNox operates; (x) the effects of increased competition in the electrification technology business; (xi) ZeroNox’s ability to defend against any intellectual property infringement or misappropriation claims; (xii) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the price of G4G’s securities, (xiii) the risk that the transaction may not be completed by G4G’s business combination deadline and the potential failure to obtain an extension of the business combination deadline if sought by G4G, (xiv) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the adoption of the Merger Agreement by the shareholders of G4G and the receipt of certain governmental and regulatory approvals, (xv) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement, (xvi) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on ZeroNox’s business relationships, operating results and business generally, (xvii) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of ZeroNox and potential difficulties in ZeroNox employee retention as a result of the transaction, (xviii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against ZeroNox or against G4G related to the Merger Agreement or the proposed transaction, (xix) the ability to maintain the listing of G4G’s securities on a national securities exchange, (xx) the price of G4G’s securities may be volatile due to a variety of factors, including changes in the competitive industries in which G4G plans to operate or ZeroNox operates, variations in operating performance across competitors, changes in laws and regulations affecting G4G’s or ZeroNox’s business and changes in the combined capital structure, (xxi) the ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations after the completion of the proposed transaction, and identify and realize additional opportunities, and (xxii) the risk of downturns and a changing regulatory landscape. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section of G4G’s registration on Form S-1 (File No. 333-261369), the definitive proxy statement/prospectus filed on August 2, 2023 and mailed to shareholders on or about August 3, 2023 discussed above and other documents filed by G4G from time to time with the SEC.

Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and G4G and ZeroNox assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Neither G4G nor ZeroNox gives any assurance that either G4G or ZeroNox or the combined company will achieve its expectations.
