The Special Meeting to approve the pending business combination is scheduled to be held on December 6, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The Special Meeting will be conducted completely virtually, and can be accessed via live webcast at https://www.cstproxy.com/cbreacquisitionholdings/2021.

Every stockholder’s vote is important, regardless of the number of shares held. Accordingly, CBAH requests that each stockholder complete, sign, date and return a proxy card (online or by mail) as soon as possible so that it is received no later than 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on December 6, 2021, to ensure that the stockholder’s shares will be represented at the Special Meeting. Stockholders which hold shares in “street name” (i.e., those stockholders whose shares are held of record by a broker, bank or other nominee) should contact their broker, bank or other nominee to ensure that their shares are voted.
If any individual CBAH stockholder who held shares as of the October 27, 2021 record date for voting does not receive the Proxy Statement/Prospectus within the next few days, such stockholder should (i) confirm his or her Proxy Statement/Prospectus’s status with his or her broker, bank or other nominee, (ii) contact Morrow Sodali LLC, CBAH’s proxy solicitor, for assistance via e-mail at CBAH.firstname.lastname@example.org or toll-free call at (800) 662-5200 and brokers, bank and other nominees can place a collect call to Morrow Sodali at (203) 658-9400, or (iii) contact CBAH by mail at CBRE Acquisition Holdings, Inc., 2100 McKinney Avenue, Suite 1250, Dallas, TX 75201.
CBAH expects to provide stockholders with additional information on how stockholders may vote their shares held in “street name” on its website in the coming days, and CBAH expects to publish a subsequent press release once the website is live.
