VPC Specialty Lending Investments PLC (the "Company")

Update Regarding its Holding in JAR Sponsor, LLC

The Company notes that on 20 December 2021, L&F Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: LNFA) ("LNFA"), a special purpose acquisition company sponsored by JAR Sponsor, LLC ("VPC Sponsor"), an affiliate of Victory Park Capital, announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to combine with ZeroFox ( https://www.zerofox.com/ ). For more information on the transaction please see the ZeroFox and LNFA press release, which can be found here .

Through VPC Sponsor, the Company currently owns 130,220 Class B Shares and 167,284 private placement warrants in LNFA, held at an aggregate cost basis of US$168,051. The transaction implies an approximately US$1.4 billion post-merger pro forma equity value at a US$10.00 price per share of common stock .

Upon transaction closing, VSL's Class B Shares will automatically convert into one share of ZeroFox common stock . T he aggregate undiscounted implied transaction value of the Class B Shares is US$1,302,200 to the Company. The Company's common stock shall be subject to a one-year post-closing lockup unless otherwise accelerated based on average trading performance measured on a rolling consecutive thirty-day period commencing at least 150 days post-closing, w ith 70% vested immediately and the remaining 30% subject to a five year vesting period from transaction close. One-third of the unvested shares will vest sooner if the volume weighted average price ("VWAP") per share reaches the following levels for 20 out of 30 trading days at any time during the five years: US$12.50, US$15.00 and US$17.50. The Company will initially value the common stock at a 30% discount to the closing trade price to account for deal closing risk, vesting and illiquidity due to the lock up on the common stock. The discounted valuation above results in a value of US$911,540 representing a 0.19% (0.24p) increase to the 31 October 2021 NAV (before fees).

Similarly, each private placement warrant converts into a warrant to purchase one share of common stock of ZeroFox . The Company holds 167,284 warrants, which maintain a US$11.50 per share strike price, provide for cashless exercise and expire five years after closing of the transaction. The private placement warrants are valued utilising an option pricing model/Black Sholes model. The initial valuation of the private placement warrants at transaction close is US$266,651 representing a 0.2% (0.03p) increase to the 31 October 2021 NAV (before fees).

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2022 and remains subject to LNFA shareholder approval amongst other closing conditions.
