A copy of the press release is furnished hereto as Exhibit 99.1. On October 27, 2020, dMY Technology Group, Inc. II (“dMY”) announced a business combination (the “Business Combination”) with GSG.
The information in this Item 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 furnished hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
Important Information About the Business Combination and Where to Find It
In connection with the proposed Business Combination, Galileo NewCo Limited (“NewCo”) intends to file a registration statement on Form F-4 (the “Registration Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which will include a proxy statement/prospectus and certain other related documents, which will be both the proxy statement to be distributed to holders of shares of dMY’s Class A common stock in connection with dMY’s solicitation of proxies for the vote by dMY’s stockholders with respect to the Business Combination and other matters as may be described in the definitive proxy statement, as well as the prospectus relating to the offer and sale of the securities of NewCo to be issued in the Business Combination. dMY’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read, when available, the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus included in the Registration Statement and the amendments thereto and the definitive proxy statement/prospectus and documents incorporated by reference therein filed in connection with the Business Combination, as these materials will contain important information about the parties to the Business Combination Agreement, dMY and the Business Combination. After the Registration Statement is declared effective, the definitive proxy statement/prospectus will be mailed to dMY’s stockholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the Business Combination and other matters as may be described in the Registration Statement. Stockholders will also be able to obtain copies of the proxy statement/prospectus and other documents filed with the SEC that will be incorporated by reference in the proxy statement/prospectus, without charge, once available, at the SEC’s web site at www.sec.gov, or by directing a request to: dMY Technology Group, Inc. II, 1180 North Town Center Drive, Suite 100, Las Vegas, Nevada 89144, Attention: Niccolo de Masi.
Participants in the Solicitation
dMY and its directors and executive officers may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies from dMY’s stockholders with respect to the Business Combination. A list of the names of those directors and executive officers and a description of their interests in dMY is contained in the Registration Statement on Form S-1, which was filed by dMY with the SEC on June 26, 2020 and is available free of charge at the SEC’s web site at www.sec.gov, or by directing a request to dMY Technology Group, Inc. II, 1180 North Town Center Drive, Suite 100, Las Vegas, Nevada 89144, Attention: Niccolo de Masi. Additional information regarding the interests of such participants will be contained in the Registration Statement when available.

A list of the names of such directors and executive officers and information regarding their interests in the Business Combination will be included in the Registration Statement when available.
Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K may be considered forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, dMY and GSG’s and NewCo’s expectations with respect to future performance and anticipated financial impacts of the proposed Business Combination, the
satisfaction of the closing conditions to the proposed Business Combination and the timing of the completion of the Business Combination. For example, projections of future enterprise value, revenue and other metrics are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may”, “should”, “expect”, “intend”, “will”, “estimate”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “predict”, “potential” or “continue”, or the negatives of these terms or variations of them or similar terminology. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward looking statements.
These forward-looking statements are based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by dMY and its management, NewCo and GSG and their management, as the case may be, are inherently uncertain. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to: (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of negotiations and any subsequent definitive agreements with respect to the Business Combination; (2) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against dMY, GSG, the combined company or others; (3) the inability to complete the Business Combination due to the failure to obtain approval of the shareholders of dMY, to obtain financing to complete the Business Combination or to satisfy other conditions to closing; (4) changes to the proposed structure of the Business Combination that may be required or appropriate as a result of applicable laws or regulations; (5) the ability to meet stock exchange listing standards following the consummation of the Business Combination; (6) the risk that the Business Combination disrupts current plans and operations of dMY or GSG’s as a result of the announcement and consummation of the Business Combination; (7) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Business Combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain its management and key employees; (8) costs related to the Business Combination; (9) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (10) the possibility that dMY, GSG or the combined company may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; (11) the impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business and/or the ability of the parties to complete the proposed business combination; (12) GSG’s estimates of expenses and profitability and underlying assumptions with respect to stockholder redemptions and purchase price and other adjustments; and (12) other risks and uncertainties set forth in the section entitled “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in dMY’s final prospectus relating to its initial public offering dated August 17, 2020 and in subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the proxy statement relating to the Business Combination expected to be filed by dMY.
Nothing in this Current Report on Form 8-K should be regarded as a representation by any person that the forward-looking statements set forth herein will be achieved or that any of the contemplated results of such forward-looking statements will be achieved. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. None of dMY, GSG’s or NewCo undertake any duty to update these forward-looking statements.
No Offer or Solicitation
This Current Report on Form 8-K is for informational purposes only and shall 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.
