The words "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intends," "may," "might," "plan," "possible," "potential," "predict," "project," "seek," "should," "target," "would" and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.

These forward-looking statements are based on information available as of the date of this communication, and current expectations, forecasts and assumptions, and involve a number of judgments, risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Screaming Eagle's, Lionsgate's or Pubco's views as of any subsequent date, and none of Screaming Eagle, Lionsgate or Pubco undertakes any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. Neither Pubco nor Screaming Eagle gives any assurance that either Pubco or Screaming Eagle will achieve its expectations. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. As a result of a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, Pubco's actual results or performance may be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Some factors that could cause actual results to differ include: (i) the timing to complete the Business Combination by Screaming Eagle's business combination deadline, and the potential failure to obtain an extension of the business combination deadline if further sought by Screaming Eagle; (ii) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the definitive agreements relating to the Business Combination; (iii) the outcome of any legal, regulatory or governmental proceedings that may be instituted against Pubco, Screaming Eagle, Lionsgate or any investigation or inquiry following announcement of the transaction, including in connection with the Business Combination; (iv) the inability to complete the Business Combination due to the failure to obtain approval of Screaming Eagle's shareholders or Screaming Eagle's public warrant holders; (v) Lionsgate's and Pubco's success in retaining or recruiting, or changes required in, its officers, key employees or directors following the Business Combination; (vi) the ability of the parties to obtain the listing of Pubco's securities on a national securities exchange upon the date of closing of the Business Combination; (vii) the risk that the Business Combination disrupts current plans and operations of Lionsgate; (viii) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Business Combination; (ix) unexpected costs related to the Business Combination; (x) the amount of redemptions by Screaming Eagle's public shareholders being greater than expected; (xi) the management and board composition of Pubco following completion of the Business Combination; (xii) limited liquidity and trading of Pubco's securities following completion of the Business Combination; (xiii) changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political and legal conditions, (xiv) the possibility that Lionsgate or Screaming Eagle may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; (xv) operational risks; (xvi) litigation and regulatory enforcement risks, including the diversion of management time and attention and the additional costs and demands on Lionsgate's resources; (xvii) the risk that the consummation of the Business Combination is substantially delayed or does not occur; and (xix) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in the Registration Statement, including those under "Risk Factors" therein, and in the other filings of Screaming Eagle, Pubco and Lionsgate with the SEC.
