The following descriptions of the BCA and SID do not purport to be complete and
are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the BCA and
SID, copies of which are included as Exhibit 2.1 and Exhibit 2.2 to this Current
Report on Form 8-K, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.

Business Combination Agreement and Scheme Implementation Deed

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the BCA and the SID, including
the approval of IGAC’s stockholders, the parties thereto will enter into a
business combination transaction (the “Proposed Business Combination”), pursuant
to which, among other things Merger Sub shall be merged with and into IGAC with
IGAC continuing as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.

Under the SID, the Company has agreed to propose a scheme of arrangement under
Part 5.1 of the Corporations Act (“Scheme”) and capital reduction which, if
implemented, will result in all shares in the Company being cancelled in return
for the issue of ordinary shares of Parent (“Parent Shares”), with Parent then
being issued a share in the Company (“Company Shares”) (resulting in the Company
becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent), subject to Company shareholder
approval, Australian court approval and the satisfaction of various conditions.

shareholders of the Company will receive, in exchange for each Company Share, a

to, as of the Record Date (as defined in the SID), (i) the total number of
Company Shares on issue plus(ii) the total number of Company Shares issuable
upon the conversion of options (other than unvested options issued to the
Company’s employees), convertible notes and any other outstanding securities or
rights that are convertible into Company Shares.

Under the BCA, in connection with the merger of Merger Sub with and into IGAC,
(a) each share of IGAC’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share
(“IGAC Class A Stock”) (other than any shares of IGAC Class A Stock issued upon
any automatic conversion of the IGAC’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001
per share (“IGAC Class B Stock”) pursuant to Section 4.3(b) of IGAC’s
Certificate of Incorporation (“Class A Conversion Stock”)) will be cancelled and
converted into the right to receive one Parent Share, (b) all shares of IGAC’s
Class B Stock (and any shares of Class A Conversion Stock) will be converted
into the right to receive an aggregate number of Parent Shares equal to the
greater of (i) 2,500,000 and (ii) 5.75% of the total number of Parent Shares
outstanding as of the closing of the Proposed Business Combination, (c) warrants
held by public stockholders of IGAC will become exercisable for Parent Shares
following the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination (“Parent
Warrants”) and (d) private placement warrants held by IG Sponsor LLC (the
“Sponsor”) will be cancelled, in each case, in accordance with the terms of the
BCA.

party if the Federal Court of Australia or another government agency (including
any other court) has taken any action permanently restraining or otherwise

party, acting reasonably, believes that there is no realistic prospect of a
successful appeal or review succeeding by June 30, 2023 (the “End Date”); (c) by

their recommendation in respect of the Scheme that shareholders of the Company
vote in favour of the Scheme, provided that such director of the Company has
determined in good faith (after having received advice from its external legal
advisors and, if appropriate, financial advisors), that failing to change,
withdraw or modify such recommendation would constitute a breach of such
director’s fiduciary or statutory duties to the shareholders of the Company; or
(g) if the Board of Directors of the Company determines that a Competing
Proposal is a Superior Proposal (as defined in the SID).

factors that may cause actual results, levels of activity, performance, or
achievements to be materially different from the information expressed or
implied by these forward-looking statements. We caution you that these
statements are based on a combination of facts and factors currently known by us

Forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K include, but are
not limited to, statements regarding the Proposed Business Combination,
including the timing and structure of the Proposed Business Combination; the
listing of Parent’s shares; the amount and use of the proceeds of the Proposed
Business Combination; the Company’s future growth and innovations and offerings;
the market size for digital betting and the Company’s ability to capture a share
of that market; the ability of the Company to expand its market reach, including
its ability to obtain new licenses and meet regulatory suitability requirements;
the initial market capitalization of Parent; the amount of funds available in
IGAC’s trust account as a result of stockholder redemptions or otherwise; and
the anticipated benefits of the Proposed Business Combination. We cannot assure
you that the forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K will
prove to be accurate. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number
of risks and uncertainties, including, among others, various factors beyond
management’s control, including general economic conditions and other risks,
uncertainties, and factors set forth in the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and
“Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in IGAC’s Annual Report
on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on
March 25, 2022, and in the proxy statement/prospectus to be filed by Parent in
connection with the Proposed Business Combination, and other filings with the
SEC, as well as factors associated with companies, such as the Company, that are
engaged in digital betting, including anticipated trends, growth rates and
challenges in those businesses and in the markets in which they operate; the
ability to complete the Proposed Business Combination due to the failure to
obtain required regulatory and stockholder approvals; the failure to satisfy
other closing conditions in the definitive transaction agreement in respect of
the transaction or otherwise; the occurrence of any event that could give rise
to the termination of the definitive transaction agreement; risks related to the

the Proposed Business Combination; the risk that the Company will need to raise
additional capital to execute its business plan, which may not be available on
acceptable terms or at all; the amount of redemption requests made by IGAC’s
public stockholders; the risk that the Company may never achieve or sustain
profitability; volatility in the price of IGAC’s securities; the risk that the
transaction disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the
announcement and consummation of the Proposed Business Combination; and the risk
that Parent’s securities will not be approved for listing on the Nasdaq or, if
approved, maintain the listing. Furthermore, if the forward-looking statements
prove to be inaccurate, the inaccuracy may be material. In addition, you are
cautioned that past performance may not be indicative of future results. In
light of the significant uncertainties in these forward-looking statements, you
should not rely on these statements in making an investment decision or regard
these statements as a representation or warranty by any person that the Company,
IGAC or Parent will achieve our objectives and plans in any specified time
frame, or at all. The forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form
8-K represent our views as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. We
anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to
change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements
at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to
the extent required by applicable law. You should, therefore, not rely on these
forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent
to the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K.
