(the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 46,000,000 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 6,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ full exercise of their over-allotment option. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-fifth of one warrant of the Company (“Warrant”), each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $460,000,000.

On March 16, 2021, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of 5,600,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a purchase price of $2.00 per Private Placement Warrant, to the Company’s sponsor, Gores Technology Partners Sponsor II LLC, generating gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $11,200,000.

A total of $460,000,000, comprised of $450,800,000 of the proceeds from the IPO, including approximately $16,100,000 of the underwriters’ deferred discount, and $9,200,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, were placed in a trust account maintained by Computershare Trust Company, N.A., acting as trustee.
