on which securities of the public entity are listed) following the Business Combination; (4) the
inability to complete the private placement of 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

ability of New Altus to grow and 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

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
proxy statement/prospectus when available. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time,
and it is impossible for us to predict these events or how they may affect us. You are cautioned
