FREYR Battery, a company organized under the laws of Luxembourg (“Pubco”), filed on March 26, 2021 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a registration statement on Form S-4 (as amended, the “Registration Statement”), which includes a preliminary proxy statement of Alussa Energy Acquisition Corp., a Cayman Island exempted company (“Alussa”), and a preliminary prospectus in connection with the proposed business combination transaction (the “Business Combination”) involving Alussa, Pubco and FREYR A/S, a company organized under the laws of Norway (“FREYR”). After the Registration Statement is declared effective, the definitive proxy statement and other relevant documents will be mailed to shareholders of Alussa as of the record date established for voting on the Business Combination. Shareholders of Alussa and other interested persons are advised to read, when available, the preliminary proxy statement, and amendments thereto, and the definitive proxy statement in connection with Alussa’s solicitation of proxies for the special meetings to be held to approve the Business Combination because these documents will contain important information about Alussa, FREYR, Pubco and the Business Combination. Alussa shareholders and other interested persons will also be able to obtain copies of the Registration Statement and the proxy statement/prospectus, without charge, once available, on the SEC’s website at or by directing a request to Alussa by contacting its Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Barcelo, c/o Alussa Energy Acquisition Corp. PO Box 500, 71 Fort Street, Grand Cayman KY1-1106, Cayman Islands, at +1(345) 949 4900.


Participants in the Solicitation


Alussa, Pubco and FREYR and certain of their respective directors, executive officers, other members of management and employees, under SEC rules, may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the shareholders of Alussa in favor of the approval of the Business Combination. Shareholders of Alussa and other interested persons may obtain more information regarding the names and interests in the proposed transaction of Alussa’s directors and officers in Alussa’s filings with the SEC, including Alussa’s annual report on form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2020, which was filed with the SEC on March 1, 2021, as modified or supplemented by any Form 3 or Form 4 filed with the SEC since the date of such filing. Additional information regarding the interests of such potential participants will also be included in the Registration Statement and other relevant documents when they are filed with the SEC. These documents can be obtained free of charge from the sources indicated above.


No Offer or Solicitation


This Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits hereto do not constitute a solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any securities or in respect of the Business Combination. This Current Report on Form 8-K shall also not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any states or jurisdictions in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or an exemption therefrom.
