Amendment No. 2 to Form S-4 filed April 22, 2022


Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Domestication Merger, page 188


1.Staff’s comment: We note your disclosure in response to comment 7. Given that "Kirkland & Ellis LLP is unable to opine on the application of Section 367(b)" due to the "inherently factual nature of the tests under the applicable Treasury Regulations to determine the applicability of Section 367(b) of the Code to any particular U.S. Holder, and the fact that these tests are generally applied based on the relevant facts at the time of the completion of the Domestication Merger," revise your disclosure to discuss the possible alternatives to investors of the effects of Section 367(b) and include a new risk factor describing the risks to investors of such alternatives. Revise your tax opinion to cover the statement quoted above, the discussion of possible alternatives of the effects of Section 367(b), and the new risk factor. Refer to Section III.C.1 of Staff Legal Bulletin No. 19.


Response: The Registrant acknowledges the Staff’s comment and respectively refers the Staff to the risk factor beginning on page 122 and the disclosure beginning on page 191 regarding Section 367(b) of the Code. As discussed with the Staff over the phone on May 19, 2022, the Registrant believes that such risk factor and disclosure addresses the Staff’s comment and that no revisions to the tax opinion are required.


Exhibit 5.1


2.Staffs comment: With a view toward disclosure, please explain the reference to Maples and Calder in assumption (d).


Response: The Registrant respectfully acknowledges the Staff’s comment and has revised the disclosure in Exhibit 5.1 accordingly.




3.Staffs comment: We note that Citigroup and Credit Suisse were underwriters for the initial public offering of the SPAC and serve as co-placement agents with respect to the PIPE Financing in connection with the business transaction. Given press reports that Citigroup and Credit Suisse are pausing their participation in the SPAC market, please tell us, with a view to disclosure, whether you have received notice from any such firms about ceasing involvement in your transaction and how that may impact the business combination or the deferred underwriting compensation owed to them for the SPAC’s initial public offering.
