("Original BuzzFeed"). At the Effective Time (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the Reporting Person's RSUs previously awarded by Original BuzzFeed with respect to shares of its Class A Common Stock were exchanged for replacement RSU awards of the Issuer, of an equivalent economic value, with respect to the Issuer's Class A Common Stock. The RSUs were subject to a liquidity event condition, which was satisfied by the Business Combination.

3. These RSUs do not expire; they either vest or are cancelled prior to the vesting date.
4. Each RSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of the Issuer's Common Stock, subject to the Reporting Person's continued status as a service provider to the Issuer.
5. Represents stock options of the Issuer received pursuant to the Business Combination. At the Effective Time (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the reporting person's stock options previously awarded by Original BuzzFeed for shares of its Class A Common Stock were exchanged for substitute option awards, of an equivalent economic value, which vest and become exercisable for shares of the Issuer's Class A Common Stock.
6. 69% of this award is fully vested. The remainder of this award vests monthly on the 1st as to 1/48 of the total award.
7. 1/3 of the total award vests on May 15, 2023. The remainder vests as to 1/8 of the total award quarterly in eight equal installments on the 15nd of August, November, February, and May thereafter.
