common stock of CBAH to certain institutional accredited investors; (5) the risk that the
announcement and consummation of the Transactions disrupts Altus Power’s current plans
and operations; (6) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Transactions, which

manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers, business partners, suppliers
and agents and retain its management and key employees; (7) costs related to the
Transactions; (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

the announcement of the Transactions; and (12) the failure to realize anticipated pro forma
results and underlying assumptions, including with respect to estimated stockholder
redemptions and purchase price and other adjustments.

implied in forward-looking statements can be found in the Registration Statement and CBAH’s
