WHEREAS, prior to the Closing and immediately prior to the closing of the PIPE Financing, the SPAC shall, subject to obtaining the approval by the Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders of the Transaction Proposals (other than the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal), file a certificate of incorporation (the 'New SPAC Certificate of Incorporation') with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A and will adopt bylaws (the 'New SPAC Bylaws') substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B, which provide, among other things, that (i) the SPAC will have two classes of common stock, New SPAC Class A Common Shares and New SPAC Class B Common Shares and (ii) the Board of Directors of the SPAC will be composed of up to nine (9) directors;

(b) The definition of 'Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders' in Section 1.01(a) of the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

'Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders' means (i) in respect of clauses (a) and (c)-(i) of the definition of Transaction Proposals, the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by the Existing SPAC Stockholders at the SPAC Special Meeting, (ii) in respect of clause (b) of the definition of Transaction Proposals, the affirmative vote of a majority of the Existing SPAC Stockholders, and (iii) in respect of clause (j) of the definition of Transaction Proposals, the affirmative vote of a majority of the holders of Class A common stock of the SPAC.

(d) The list of defined terms in Section 1.01(b) of the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended to insert, immediately below the existing defined term 'SPAC', the defined term 'SPAC Class A Vote Proposal', with the corresponding section cross-reference to read 'Section 1.01(a) (definition of 'Transaction Proposals')'.

Section 5.02. Authorization. The execution, delivery and performance by the SPAC of this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements and the consummation of the Transactions are within the corporate powers and authority of the SPAC and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of the SPAC, other than, as of the date hereof, approval of the Transaction Proposals by

2

the Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders at the SPAC Special Meeting. The approval of the Transaction Proposals (other than the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal) by the applicable Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders at the SPAC Special Meeting is the only vote of the holders of any class or series of capital stock of the SPAC necessary to approve the Transactions (other than the increase in the number of New SPAC Class A Common Shares authorized for issuance, which is the subject of the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal), and the approval of the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal by the applicable Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders at the SPAC Special Meeting is the only vote of the holders of any class or series of capital stock of the SPAC necessary to approve the increase in the number of New SPAC Class A Common Shares authorized for issuance. This Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements to which the SPAC is a party constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the SPAC, assuming this Agreement constitutes the valid and binding obligation of the other parties hereto and thereto, enforceable against the SPAC in accordance with their terms, except insofar as enforceability may be limited by Enforceability Exceptions.

(f) Section 5.05(c) of the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

(c) Subject to approval of the Transaction Proposals (other than the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal) by the Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders, the equity portion of the Total Consideration, when delivered, as applicable, shall be duly authorized and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, issued in compliance with all Applicable Law and not subject to, and not issued in violation of, any options, warrants, calls, rights (including preemptive rights), organizational documents, commitments or agreements to which the SPAC or any Subsidiary of the SPAC is a party or by which it is bound, and shall be issued to the holders of Unit Electing Shares and the holders of SPAC Stock Electing Shares with good and valid title, free and clear of any Liens other than Liens arising out of, under or in connection with applicable federal, state and local securities laws.

(g) Section 8.04(f) of the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

(f) The SPAC shall, prior to or as promptly as practicable following the effective date of the Registration Statement, establish a record date (which date shall be mutually agreed with the Company) for, duly call and give notice of, the SPAC Special Meeting. The SPAC shall convene and hold the SPAC Special Meeting, for the purpose of obtaining the approval of the Transaction Proposals, which meeting shall be held as promptly as practicable following the declaration of effectiveness of the Registration Statement and not more than forty-five (45) days after the date on which the SPAC commences the mailing of the Proxy Statement to its stockholders. The SPAC shall use its reasonable best efforts to take all actions necessary (in its discretion or at the request of the Company) to obtain the approval of the Transaction Proposals at the SPAC Special Meeting, including as such SPAC

3

Special Meeting may be adjourned or postponed in accordance with this Agreement, including by soliciting proxies as promptly as practicable in accordance with Applicable Law for the purpose of seeking such approval. The SPAC shall include its board recommendation in the Proxy Statement. The board of directors of the SPAC shall not (and no committee or subgroup thereof shall) change, withdraw, withhold, qualify or modify, or publicly propose to change, withdraw, withhold, qualify or modify, such board recommendation for any reason. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the SPAC shall be entitled to (and, in the case of the following clauses (ii) and (iii), at the request of the Company, shall) postpone or adjourn the SPAC Special Meeting for a period of no longer than fifteen (15) days: (i) to ensure that any supplement or amendment to the Proxy Statement that the board of directors of the SPAC has determined in good faith is required by Applicable Law is disclosed to the Existing SPAC Stockholders and for such supplement or amendment to be promptly disseminated to such Existing SPAC Stockholders prior to the SPAC Special Meeting; (ii) if, as of the time for which the SPAC Special Meeting is originally scheduled (as set forth in the Proxy Statement), there are insufficient Existing SPAC Class A Common Shares represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business to be conducted at the SPAC Special Meeting; (iii) in order to solicit additional proxies from Existing SPAC Stockholders for purposes of obtaining approval of the Transaction Proposals; or (iv) only with the prior written consent of the Company to seek withdrawal of redemption requests, for purposes of satisfying the Minimum Cash Condition; provided, that, notwithstanding any longer adjournment or postponement period specified at the beginning of this sentence, in the event of any such postponement or adjournment, the SPAC Special Meeting shall be reconvened as promptly as practicable following such time as the matters described in such clauses have been resolved. For the avoidance of doubt, the failure to obtain approval of the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal at the SPAC Special Meeting shall not be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement nor shall it be a condition which prohibits the consummation of the Closing.

(h) Section 11.01(e) of the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

(e) The Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders shall have duly approved the Transaction Proposals (other than the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal) in accordance with Applicable Law, the Existing SPAC Certificate of Incorporation, the Existing SPAC Bylaws and the rules and regulations of the NYSE.

(i) Section 12.01(f) of the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

(f) by written notice from either the Company and the Charterhouse Parties, on the one hand, or the SPAC, on the other hand, to the other(s) if the

4

approval of the Transaction Proposals (other than the SPAC Class A Vote Proposal) by the Requisite Existing SPAC Stockholders is not obtained at the SPAC Special Meeting (subject to any adjournment, postponement or recess of the meeting); provided that the right to terminate this Agreement under this clause (f) shall not be available to the SPAC if, at the time of such termination, the SPAC is in breach of Section 8.04; or

(j) Exhibit A to the Business Combination Agreement is hereby amended and restated as set forth in Exhibit A hereto.

2. The parties hereto hereby agree that, except as specifically provided in this Amendment, the Business Combination Agreement shall remain in full force and effect without any other amendments or modifications.

3. The provisions of Section 1.02, Sections 13.03 through 13.12 (inclusive) and Section 13.14 of the Business Combination Agreement are hereby incorporated into this Amendment by reference and shall be applicable to this Amendment, mutatis mutandis, for all purposes.

Section 4.02.Preferred Stock. The board of directors of the Corporation (the 'Board of Directors') is hereby empowered, without any action or vote by the Corporation's stockholders (except as may otherwise be provided by the terms of any class or series of Preferred Stock then outstanding), to authorize by resolution or resolutions from time to time the issuance of one or more classes or series of Preferred Stock and to fix the designations, powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other rights, if any, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, if any, with respect to each such class or series of Preferred Stock and the number of shares constituting each such class or series, and to increase or decrease the number of shares of any such class or series to the extent permitted by the DGCL.

3

(iii) In no event will any stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, combination of stock, reclassification or recapitalization be declared or made on any class of Common Stock (each, a 'Stock Adjustment') unless (A) a corresponding Stock Adjustment for all other classes of Common Stock not so adjusted at the time outstanding is made in the same proportion and the same manner and (B) the Stock Adjustment has been reflected in the same economically equivalent manner on all shares of common stock of Mirion IntermediateCo. Stock dividends with respect to each class of Common Stock may only be paid with shares of stock of the same class of Common Stock.

The holders of shares of Class B Common Stock, as such, will not be entitled to receive, with respect to such shares, any assets of the Corporation in excess of the par value thereof, in the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation; provided this Section 4.03(c) shall not limit the rights of the holders of shares of Class B Common Stock to cause their shares of Mirion IntermediateCo Class B Common Stock to be redeemed or exchanged by Mirion IntermediateCo for shares of Class A Common Stock or cash in accordance with Section 4.04 of the Mirion IntermediateCo Charter (or for the consideration payable in respect of shares of Class A Common Stock in such voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up).

4

(ii) To the extent that any holder of shares of Mirion IntermediateCo Class B Common Stock exercises its right pursuant to Section 4.04 of the Mirion IntermediateCo Charter to have its Mirion IntermediateCo Class B Common Stock redeemed by Mirion IntermediateCo in accordance with the Mirion IntermediateCo Charter, then simultaneously with the payment of cash or Class A Common Stock consideration in accordance with the Mirion IntermediateCo Charter, the Corporation shall cancel for no consideration a number of shares of Class B Common Stock registered in the name of the redeeming or exchanging holder equal to the number of Mirion IntermediateCo Class B Common Stock held by such holder that are redeemed or exchanged in such redemption or exchange transaction.

(B) 'THE SHARES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SUCH TRANSFER MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933;' and

(C) Any other legend required by applicable securities laws of any jurisdiction to the extent such laws are applicable to such shares of Class B Common Stock.

(e) Reservation of Shares of Class A Common Stock.

5
