Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release includes certain forward-looking statements, estimates, and projections provided by Terran Orbital that reflect management’s views regarding the anticipated future financial and operating performance of Terran Orbital. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical, including statements regarding operational and financial plans, terms and performance of Terran Orbital and other projections or predictions of the future. Forward looking statements are typically identified by such words as “project,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “may,” “will,” “should,” and “could” and similar expressions. Such statements, estimates, and projections reflect numerous assumptions concerning anticipated results. Forward-looking statements in this press release may include, for example; statements about Terran Orbital’s industry and market sizes; future opportunities; expectations and projections concerning future financial and operational performance and results of Terran Orbital; and the potential transactions, including items such as the implied enterprise value, ownership structure, the amount of redemption requests made by Tailwind Two’s shareholders, the ability of Tailwind Two to issue equity or equity-linked instruments in connection with the potential transactions or in the future, the likelihood and ability of the parties to successfully consummate the potential transactions, and those factors set forth in the section entitled “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in Tailwind Two’s final prospectus relating to its initial public offering dated March 8, 2021, and in subsequent filings with the SEC, including the registration statement on Form S-4 relating to the potential transaction filed by Tailwind Two. As these assumptions may or may not prove to be correct and there are numerous factors which will affect Terran Orbital’s actual results (many of which are beyond Terran Orbital’s control), there can be no assurances that any projected results are attainable or will be realized. Terran Orbital and Tailwind Two disclaim any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as required by law. Terran Orbital’s actual results may differ materially from those set forth in this press release.
