The percentages set forth above are calculated using the 11,239,704 shares of Issuer Class A Common Stock outstanding as disclosed in the Issuer’s Prospectus, dated April 21, 2021 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 23, 2021, plus, in the case of all Reporting Persons, other than Vista SPV, 14,557,960 shares of Issuer Class B Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons that are convertible on a one-for-one basis for shares of Issuer Class A Common Stock.

Pursuant to the Investors’ Rights Agreement, the registration rights include demand registration rights beginning 180 days following the completion of the IPO, the filing of a registration statement on Form S-3 as soon as reasonably practicable after the Issuer is eligible to use Form S-3, together with takedown offerings thereunder from time to time, and certain “piggyback” registration rights. The Issuer will pay all expenses relating to any demand registrations, Form S-3 registrations and piggyback registrations, subject to specified limitations.
