Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation Reminds Stockholders to Vote in Favor of Business Combination with Hyzon
MENLO PARK, Calif., July 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: DCRB) (“DCRB”), a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company, reminds its stockholders to vote in favor of the previously announced business combination (the “Business Combination”) with Hyzon Motors Inc. (“Hyzon”), a leading supplier of zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell-powered commercial vehicles.
The DCRB board of directors believes the proposed Business Combination is in the best interests of DCRB and its stockholders, and recommends that DCRB stockholders vote “FOR” the adoption of the Business Combination Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of February 8, 2021, by and among DCRB, DCRB Merger Sub Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of DCRB, and Hyzon.
Stockholders who owned common stock of DCRB as of the close of business on June 1, 2021 (the “Record Date”) are entitled to attend the special meeting of DCRB stockholders to approve the pending Business Combination (the “Special Meeting”) and to vote their shares held as of the Record Date, regardless of whether such stockholders have subsequently sold their shares.
The Special Meeting is scheduled to be held on July 15, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The Special Meeting will be conducted completely virtually, and can be accessed via live webcast at https://www.cstproxy.com/decarbonizationplusacquisition/sm2021.
Additional information on how stockholders of record may vote their shares can be found at https://www.DCRBplus.com/DCRB1-vote.
Every stockholder’s vote is important, regardless of the number of shares held. Accordingly, all DCRB stockholders who held shares as of the Record Date who have not yet voted are encouraged to do so as soon as possible online or by phone and must vote by no later than 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on July 15, 2021 at the Special Meeting. For the avoidance of doubt, DCRB stockholders who owned shares as of the Record Date and subsequently sold all or a portion of their shares are STILL entitled to vote shares held as of the Record Date, and are encouraged to do so. DCRB’s board of directors recommends you vote “FOR” the Business Combination with Hyzon and “FOR” all of the related proposals described in the definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A (the “Proxy Statement”) filed by DCRB with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on June 21, 2021.

Forward Looking Statements
This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of present or historical fact included in this press release, including those regarding DCRB’s proposed acquisition of Hyzon and DCRB’s ability to consummate the transaction, are forward-looking statements. When used in this press release, the words “could,” “should,” “will,” “may,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” the negative of such terms and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and assumptions about future events and are based on currently available information as to the outcome and timing of future events. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, DCRB and Hyzon disclaim any duty to update any forward –looking statements, all of which are expressly qualified by the statements in this section, to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release.

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, such as risks related to the ability to convert non-binding memoranda of understanding into binding orders or sales (including because of the current or prospective financial resources of the counterparties to Hyzon’s non-binding memoranda of understanding and letters of intent), or the ability to identify additional potential customers and convert them to paying customers.
