This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1996. JAWS Spitfire’s and VELO3D’s actual results may differ from their expectations, estimates and projections and consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as “expect”, “estimate”, “project”, “budget”, “forecast”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “plan”, “may”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “believes”, “predicts”, “potential”, “continue”, and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, JAWS Spitfire’s and VELO3D’s expectations with respect to future performance and anticipated financial impacts of the transaction, the satisfaction of closing conditions to the transaction and the timing of the completion of the transaction. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results.

In addition, there are risks and uncertainties described in the proxy statement/prospectus on Form S-4 relating to the business combination, which has been filed by JAWS Spitfire with the SEC and other documents filed by JAWS Spitfire from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Most of these factors are outside JAWS Spitfire’s and VELO3D’s control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (1) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against JAWS Spitfire or VELO3D following the announcement of the transaction; (2) the inability to complete the transaction, including due to the inability to concurrently close the business combination and the private placement of common stock or due to failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of JAWS Spitfire; (3) delays in obtaining, adverse conditions contained in, or the inability to obtain necessary regulatory approvals or complete regular reviews required to complete the transaction; (4) the risk that the transaction disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the transaction; (5) the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the transaction, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain its key employees; (6) costs related to the transaction; (7) changes in the applicable laws or regulations; (8) the possibility that the combined company may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; (9) the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic; and (10) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time described in JAWS Spitfire’s registration on Form S-1, including those under “Risk Factors” therein, and in JAWS Spitfire’s other filings with the SEC.
