Amendment No. 7 to Registration Statement on Form F-4 filed July 5, 2022
"The mutual termination of BofA Securities's engagements as a joint placement agent and financial advisor to THIL may indicate that . . . ", page 89
|1.||We note your disclosure that the "termination of BofA Securities’s engagements as a joint placement agent and financial advisor to THIL may indicate that it is unwilling to be associated with the disclosure in this proxy statement/prospectus or the underlying business or financial analysis related to the Business Combination" (emphasis added), as well as additional instances of similar disclosure in which you discuss the termination / resignation of BofA Securities and UBS (for example, on pages xxii, 90, 91, 126 and 128). Please remove "may indicate" in each applicable instance to instead indicate that the applicable financial advisor "is unwilling" to be associated with the disclosure or underlying analysis.|
|In response to the Staff’s comments, the Company has revised the disclosure on pages xxii, 89, 90, 91, 126 and 128 of the Revised Registration Statement.|
|Termination of BofA Securities's Engagements, page 124|
|2.||We note your response to comment 1, as well as your deleted disclosure. In your discussion of how "BofA Securities has declined to provide the letter . . . ," you continue to refer to "disclosure with respect to THIL and Silver Crest’s understanding that a number of advisory firms, including BofA Securities, are generally seeking to withdraw from pending de-SPAC transactions due to the recent rule proposals by the SEC." As you have deleted the referenced disclosure, please also delete this description of such disclosure when discussing the letter request to both BofA Securities and to UBS. Please make conforming changes in your section entitled "Termination of UBS's Engagements" on page 128, as well as in your risk factors on pages 90 and 91.|
|In response to the Staff’s comments, the Company has revised the disclosure on pages 90, 91, 126 and 128 of the Revised Registration Statement.|
