This Current Report on Form 8-K will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any of the information in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1.
Important Information and Where to Find It
This Current Report on Form 8-K relates to a proposed transaction between Rumble and CF VI. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute an offer to sell or exchange, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or exchange, any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, sale or exchange would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. In connection with the transaction described herein, CF VI has filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) an effective registration statement on Form S-4, which includes a proxy statement/prospectus of CF VI, on August 12, 2022 (the “Registration Statement”), and has filed, and will file, other relevant materials with the SEC. The definitive proxy statement/prospectus has been sent to all CF VI stockholders. Investors and security holders of CF VI are urged to read the Registration Statement, the definitive proxy statement/prospectus (and any supplements thereto, if and when filed), and all other relevant documents filed or to be filed in connection with the proposed transaction because they contain important information about the proposed transaction.
Investors and security holders will be able to obtain free copies of the Registration Statement, the proxy statement/prospectus and all other relevant documents filed or that will be filed with the SEC by CF VI through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov.

Information regarding the persons who may, under SEC rules, be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies from CF VI’s stockholders in connection with the proposed business combination is set forth in the Registration Statement.
No Offer or Solicitation
This Current Report on Form 8-K is not a proxy statement or solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any securities or in respect of the potential transaction and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities of CF VI, or Rumble, nor shall there be any sale of any such securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction. No offer of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities Act.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements regarding the proposed transaction between CF VI and Rumble. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the closing of the transaction and CF VI’s, Rumble’s, or their respective management teams’ expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding the future. The words “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intends”, “may”, “might”, “plan”, “possible”, “potential”, “predict”, “project”, “should”, “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to assumptions, risks and uncertainties. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this Current Report on Form 8-K. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as and must not be relied on by an investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of CF VI and Rumble. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ from the forward looking-statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including but not limited, to (i) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, (ii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, (iii) the inability to complete the PIPE offering, (iv) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the BCA, (v) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Rumble and/or CF VI related to the BCA or the transactions contemplated thereby, (vi) the ability to maintain the listing of CF VI stock on Nasdaq, (vii) costs related to the transactions and the failure to realize anticipated benefits of the transactions or to realize estimated pro forma results and underlying assumptions, including with respect to estimated stockholder redemptions, (viii) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on Rumble’s business relationships, operating results, performance and business generally, (ix) changes in the combined capital structure of Rumble and CF VI following the transactions, (x) changes in laws and regulations affecting Rumble’s business, (xi) the ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations after the completion of the transactions, and identify and realize additional opportunities, (xii) risks related to Rumble’s limited operating history, the rollout of its business and the timing of expected business milestones, (xiii) risks related to Rumble’s potential inability to achieve or maintain profitability and generate cash, (xiv) current and future conditions in the global economy, including as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their impact on Rumble, its business and markets in which it operates, (xv) the ability of Rumble to retain existing content providers and users and attract new content providers and customers, (xvi) the potential inability of Rumble to manage growth effectively, (xvii) the enforceability of Rumble’s intellectual property, including its patents and the potential infringement on the intellectual property rights of others, and (xviii) the ability to recruit, train and retain qualified personnel. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section of the Registration Statement, CF VI’s Form 10-Q filed on August 15, 2022 and the other filings that CF VI has filed or will file with the SEC from time to time. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Rumble and CF VI assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Neither Rumble nor CF VI gives any assurance that either Rumble or CF VI will achieve its expectations.
