This Current Report on Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Most of these factors are outside of either the Company’s or the Targets’ control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (1)the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of any of the transaction documents or could otherwise cause the Business Combination to fail to close; (2)the outcome of the New York and California lawsuits among the Company, OpenGov, Inc. and the other parties thereto, as well as any other legal proceedings that may be instituted against the Company or a Target in connection with the transaction documents and the Business Combination; (3)the inability to complete the Business Combination, including due to failure to obtain approval of the shareholders of the Company or other conditions to closing in the transaction documents; (4)the inability to complete the proposed amendment to the Warrant Agreement, including due to the failure to obtain the approval of the warrant holders of the Company; (5) the inability to obtain or maintain the listing of New GTY’s common stock on The Nasdaq Stock Market following the Business Combination; (6)the risk that a Business Combination disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the Business Combination; (7)the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of a Business Combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably and retain its key employees; (8)costs related to the Business Combination; (9) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (10) the possibility that a Target or the post-combination company may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; (11) any government shutdown, such as the federal government shutdown which commenced in December 2018, which impacts the ability of the Targets’ customers to purchase the Targets’ products and services; and (12) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in the proxy statement/prospectus on Form S-4 relating to the Business Combination, including those under “Risk Factors” therein, and in the Company’s other filings with the SEC. The Company cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made.
