As previously disclosed in the definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 6, 2023 (the “Definitive Proxy Statement”), Altimar Acquisition Corp. III (the “Company” or “Altimar III”) has called the extraordinary general meeting of Altimar III shareholders (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”), at which shareholders will be asked to vote on the following proposals: to (i) extend the date by which the Company must consummate its initial business combination from March 8, 2023 to September 8, 2023 (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”), (ii) eliminate the limitation that the Company shall not redeem public shares to the extent that such redemption would cause the Company’s net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 (the “Redemption Limitation Amendment Proposal”), and to approve the adjournment of the Extraordinary General Meeting to a later date or dates or indefinitely, if necessary or convenient, either (x) to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies in the event that there are insufficient votes for, or otherwise in connection with, the approval of any of the foregoing proposals or (y) if our board determines before the Extraordinary General Meeting that it is not necessary or no longer desirable to proceed with the other proposals (the “Adjournment Proposal”)
In connection with the Extension Amendment Proposal and the Redemption Limitation Amendment Proposal, shareholders may elect to redeem their public shares (the “Election”) for a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with our IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest earned on the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay income taxes, if any, divided by the number of then-outstanding public shares. As disclosed in the Definitive Proxy Statement, and based upon the amount in the Trust Account as of February 1, 2023, which was approximately $158,080,523.19, the Company anticipates that the per-share price at which public shares will be redeemed for a pro rata portion of the funds held in the Trust Account will be approximately $10.18 at the time of the Extraordinary General Meeting. The closing price of the public shares on the New York Stock Exchange on February 1, 2023 was $10.21. The Company disclosed that it cannot assure shareholders that they will be able to sell their public shares in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in in the Company’s securities when such shareholders wish to sell their shares.
As disclosed above and in the Definitive Proxy Statement, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), may adjourn the Extraordinary General Meeting indefinitely if the Board determines before the Extraordinary General Meeting that it is not necessary or no longer desirable to proceed with the Extension Amendment Proposal. The Company anticipates it will not proceed with the Extension Amendment Proposal if, as a result of redemptions in connection with the Extension Amendment Proposal, the amount in the Trust Account would fall below $40,000,000. If the Extension Amendment is approved and implemented, the Company plans to liquidate the U.S. government treasury obligations or money market funds held in the Trust Account and thereafter to maintain the funds in the trust account in cash in an interest-bearing demand deposit account at a bank. Interest on such deposit account is currently 3.5% per annum, but such deposit account carries a variable rate, and the Company cannot assure that such rate will not decrease or increase significantly.
Forward Looking Statements
This Current Report contains statements that are forward-looking and as such are not historical facts. This includes, without limitation, statements regarding the Company’s financial position, business strategy and the plans and objectives of management for future operations. These statements constitute projections, forecasts and forward-looking statements, and are not guarantees of performance. They involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these statements. Such statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. When used in this Current Report, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. When the Company discusses its strategies or plans, it is making projections, forecasts or forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the beliefs of, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to, the Company’s management. Actual results and shareholders’ value will be affected by a variety of risks and factors, including, without limitation, international, national and local economic conditions, merger, acquisition and business combination risks, financing risks, geo-political risks, acts of terror or war, and those risk factors described under “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 8, 2022, under “Risk Factors” section in the Definitive Proxy Statement, and in other reports the Company files with the SEC. Many of the risks and factors that will determine these results and shareholders’ value are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict.
All such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Current Report. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Company’s expectations with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

No Offer or Solicitation
This Current Report shall not constitute a solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any securities. This communication shall also not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any states or jurisdictions in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom.
