On July 14, 2021, GX Acquisition Corp. (“GX” or the “Company”) held a special meeting (the “Special Meeting”) of the stockholders of the Company virtually via live webcast at https://www.cstproxy.com/gxacquisitioncorp/sm2021, at which holders of 15,797,494 shares of common stock were present in person or by proxy, representing 79.916% of the voting power of the shares of the Company’s common stock as of June 1, 2021, the record date for the Special Meeting (stockholders of record as of the close of business on the record date are referred to herein as “Stockholders”). Each of the proposals listed below is described in more detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement/prospectus filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on June 25, 2021 (the “Proxy Statement”) beginning on page 114, which is incorporated herein by reference.

(formerly known as Celularity Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Celularity”), and the transactions contemplated thereby, which will ultimately result in Celularity becoming a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of GX.
