GS ACQUISITION HOLDINGS CORP II : Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

09/03/2021 | 04:40pm EDT

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously announced, on June 17, 2021, GS Acquisition Holdings Corp II, a Delaware corporation (the "Company" or "GSAH"), announced that it entered into a Business Combination Agreement (the "Agreement"), dated as of June 17, 2021, by and among the Company, Mirion Technologies (TopCo), Ltd., a Jersey private company limited by shares ("Mirion"), CCP IX LP No. 1, CCP IX LP No. 2, CCP IX Co-Investment LP and CCP IX Co-Investment No. 2 LP (collectively, the "Charterhouse Parties"), each acting by their general partner, Charterhouse General Partners (IX) Limited, for the limited purpose set forth therein, each of the other persons set forth on Annex I thereto (together with the Charterhouse Parties, the "Supporting Mirion Holders") and the other holders of existing shares of Mirion who become a party thereto by executing a joinder agreement (each, a "Joining Seller" and, collectively, the "Joining Sellers" and, together with each Supporting Mirion Holder, each, a "Seller" and, collectively, the "Sellers").

On August 3, 2021, a purported stockholder of the Company sent a letter to the Company's board of directors claiming that the board of directors is improperly denying the Company's Class A common stockholders the right under Delaware law to a separate class vote with respect to the Company's proposal to increase the number of authorized shares of the Company's Class A common stock in connection with the Company's proposed business combination with Mirion. While the Company believes that no such separate class vote is required and that the claims and allegations in the August 3, 2021 letter are without merit, on September 3, 2021, pursuant to Section 13.04 of the Agreement, the Company, Mirion and the Charterhouse Parties, on behalf of the Sellers, entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Business Combination Agreement (the "Amendment"). The Amendment provides, among other things, that the holders of the Company's Class A common stock shall separately vote on the proposal to increase the number of authorized shares of the Company's Class A common stock (the "Class A Vote Proposal"). Approval of the Class A Vote Proposal is not a condition to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Agreement.

Other than as modified pursuant to the Amendment, the Agreement remains in full force and effect. The foregoing descriptions of the Amendment and the Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, the form of which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, and of the Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") by the Company on June 21, 2021, and is incorporated herein by reference.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding the vote to approve the potential business combination. Such statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. When used in this Current Report, words such as "pro forma," "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "might," "plan," "possible," "potential," "predict," "project," "should," "strive," "would" and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. When the Company or Mirion discusses its strategies or plans, including as they relate to the potential transaction, it is making projections, forecasts and forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the beliefs of, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to, the Company's or Mirion's management.

These forward-looking statements involve significant risk and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside the Company and Mirion's control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (1) the Company's ability to complete the potential transaction; (2) satisfaction or waiver (if applicable) of the conditions to the potential transaction, including with respect to the approval of the stockholders of the Company; (3) the ability to maintain the listing of the combined company's securities on the New York Stock Exchange; (4) the inability to complete the PIPE Investment; (5) the risk that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of the Company or Mirion as a result of the announcement and consummation of the transaction described herein; (6) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction, 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; (7) costs related to the proposed transaction; (8) changes in applicable laws or regulations and delays in obtaining, adverse conditions contained in, or the inability to obtain necessary regulatory approvals required to complete the potential transaction; (9) the possibility that the Company and Mirion may be adversely affected by other economic, business and/or competitive factors; (10) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against the Company and Mirion or any of their respective directors or officers, following the announcement of the potential transaction; (11) the failure to realize anticipated pro forma results or projections and underlying assumptions, including with respect to estimated stockholder redemptions and purchase price and other adjustments; (12) future global, regional or local political, market and social conditions, including due to the COVID-19 pandemic; and (13) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus of the Company, including those under "Risk Factors" therein, and other documents filed or to be filed with the SEC by the Company.

Forward-looking statements included in this Current Report speak only as of the date of this Current Report. Neither the Company nor Mirion undertakes any obligation to update its forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Current Report. Additional risks and uncertainties are identified and discussed in the Company's reports filed with the SEC and available at the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

In connection with the proposed Business Combination, a registration statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-257535) was filed by the Company with the SEC . The Form S-4 includes a preliminary proxy statement to be distributed to holders of the Company's common stock in connection with the solicitation for proxies for the vote by the Company's stockholders in connection with the proposed Business Combination and other matters as described in the Form S-4, as well as a prospectus relating to the offer of the securities to be issued in connection with the completion of the proposed Business Combination. The Company and Mirion urge investors, stockholders and other interested persons to read the Form S-4, including the proxy statement/prospectus included therein, as well as other documents filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed Business Combination, as these materials will contain important information about the Company, Mirion and the proposed Business Combination. After the Form S-4 has been declared effective, the definitive proxy statement/prospectus will be mailed to the Company's stockholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the proposed Business Combination. Stockholders will also be able to obtain copies of such documents, without charge, once available, at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov, or by directing a request to: IR-GSacquisition@gs.com.

Participants in the Solicitation

The Company and Mirion and their respective directors and officers may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies of the Company's stockholders in connection with the proposed Business Combination. The Company's stockholders and other interested persons may obtain, without charge, more detailed information regarding the directors and officers of the Company in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, which was filed with the SEC on May 17, 2021.

Information regarding the persons who may, under SEC rules, be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies to the Company's stockholders in connection with the proposed Business Combination and other matters to be voted upon at the special meeting of the Company's stockholders will be set forth in the proxy statement/prospectus for the proposed Business Combination when available.
