Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements made in this press release regarding the proposed transactions contemplated by the definitive agreement, including the benefits of the Transaction, revenue opportunities, anticipated future financial and operating performance, and results, including estimates for growth, and the expected timing of the Transaction. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on management’s current beliefs, expectations, and assumptions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of RumbleOn’s control. Actual results and outcomes may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results and outcomes to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the following: (1) the occurrence of any event, change, or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Transaction; (2) the failure to obtain debt and equity financing required to complete the Transaction; (3) failure to obtain the OEM approvals; (4) the inability to complete the Transaction, including due to failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of RumbleOn, certain regulatory approvals, or satisfy other conditions to closing in the definitive agreement; (5) the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on RumbleOn’s business and/or the ability of the parties to complete the Transaction; (6) the risk that the Transaction disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the Transaction; (7) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Transaction, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of management to integrate the combined company’s business and operation, and the ability of the parties to retain its key employees; (8) costs related to the Transaction; (9) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (10) risks relating to the uncertainty of pro forma and projected financial information with respect to the combined company; and (11) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in the preliminary and definitive proxy statements to be filed with the SEC relating to the Transaction, including those under “Risk Factors” therein, and in RumbleOn’s other filings with the SEC. RumbleOn cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. RumbleOn cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. RumbleOn does not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in their expectations or any change in events, conditions, or circumstances on which any such statement is based, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable law. Neither RumbleOn nor RideNow gives any assurance that after the Transaction the combined company will achieve its expectations.

The financial projections were not prepared with a view towards public disclosure or with a view to complying with the published guidelines of the SEC, the guidelines established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants with respect to prospective financial information, or with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Neither RumbleOn’s independent auditors, nor any other independent accountants, have compiled, examined or performed any procedures with respect to the financial projections, nor have they expressed any opinion or any other form of assurance on such information or its achievability. Although the financial projections were prepared based on assumptions and estimates that RumbleOn’s management believes are reasonable, RumbleOn provides no assurance that the assumptions made in preparing the financial projections will prove accurate or that actual results will be consistent with these financial projections.
