Item 8.01

Other Events.

On November 23, 2022, Gores Holdings VII, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a definitive proxy statement relating to a special meeting of stockholders to approve (i) an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter”) and (ii) an amendment to the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated February 25, 2021, by and between the Company and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (such proposals together, the “Proposals”), which together would, if implemented, allow the Company to redeem all of its outstanding shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Public Shares”), prior to December 31, 2022 by changing the date by which the Company must cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination (a “Business Combination”) from February 25, 2023 to the later of (x) December 15, 2022 or (y) the date of effectiveness of the second amended and restated charter (the “Amended Termination Date”).

If the Proposals are approved, and because the Company will not be able to complete an initial Business Combination by the Amended Termination Date, the Company will redeem all Public Shares as promptly as reasonably possible after the Amended Termination Date (the “Mandatory Redemption”). The Company expects to complete the Mandatory Redemption on or around December 16, 2022 if stockholders approve the Proposals. Additionally, the last day of trading of the Public Shares will be December 15, 2022 if stockholders approve the Proposals.

The virtual special meeting will be held on Thursday, December 15, 2022 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time, and the record date for the meeting was the close of business (Eastern time) on November 22, 2022.
