Pursuant to the Domestication, (i) each outstanding Class B ordinary share, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class B ordinary shares”), of ArcLight was automatically converted, on a one-for-one basis, into a Class A ordinary share, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A ordinary shares”), of ArcLight; (ii) each issued and outstanding Class A ordinary share (including Class A ordinary shares resulting from the conversion of Class B ordinary shares into Class A ordinary shares) was automatically converted, on a one-for-one basis, into a share of New OPAL Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “New OPAL Class A common stock”); (iii) each issued and outstanding whole warrant to purchase Class A ordinary shares of ArcLight automatically converted into a warrant to acquire one share of New OPAL Class A common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share (each a “New OPAL warrant”); and (iv) each issued and outstanding unit of ArcLight that had not been previously separated into the underlying Class A ordinary shares of ArcLight and the underlying warrants of ArcLight upon the request of the holder thereof prior to the Domestication was cancelled and entitled the holder thereof to one share of New OPAL Class A common stock and one-fifth of one New OPAL warrant.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Note
1-Description
of Organization, Business Operations and Basis of Presentation
OPAL Fuels Inc. (formerly known as ArcLight Clean Transition Corp. II) (the “Company”) was incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company on January 13, 2021. The Company was incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses.
Business Combination
On December 2, 2021, the Company, OPAL HoldCo LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“OPAL HoldCo”), and OPAL Fuels LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“OPAL Fuels”), entered into a Business Combination Agreement (as it may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Business Combination Agreement”). On July 21, 2022, we closed the Business Combination Agreement and consummated the transactions contemplated thereby (the “Business Combination”). The Business Combination Agreement and the Business Combination were unanimously approved by the boards of directors of the Company and OPAL Fuels, and also approved by OPAL Holdco, the sole member of OPAL Fuels. The Business Combination Agreement provides for, among other things, the following trans
actions: (i) each outstanding Class B ordinary share, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company will convert into one Class A ordinary share, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company; (ii) the Company will change the jurisdiction of its incorporation by deregistering as an exempted company in the Cayman Islands and domesticating to, and continuing as a corporation incorporated under the laws of, the State of Delaware (the “Domestication”) and, in connection with the Domestication, (A) the Company’s name will be changed to “OPAL Fuels Inc.” (“New OPAL”), (B) each outstanding Class A ordinary share of the Company will become one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of New OPAL (the “New OPAL Class A Common Stock”), (C) each outstanding warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company will become a warrant to purchase one share of New OPAL Class A common stock and (D) New OPAL will file its certificate of incorporation and adopt bylaws to serve as its governing documents in connection with the Domestication; and
 
(iii) (A) OPAL Fuels will cause its existing limited liability company agreement to be amended and restated, (B) OPAL Fuels will cause all of its limited liability company interests existing immediately prior to the closing of the Business Combination (the “Closing”) to be
re-classified
into a number of common units (collectively, the “OPAL Units”) based on a
pre-transaction
equity value for OPAL equal to
$1,501,870,000,
less all principal and accrued interest outstanding immediately after the Closing pursuant to that certain convertible promissory note, dated as of May 1, 2021 (as amended, including that certain First Amendment to Convertible Note, dated November 29, 2021, the “Ares Note”), held by ARCC Beacon LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Ares”), (C) the Company will contribute the (x) the amount of cash in the trust account (the “Trust Account”) established by the Company with the proceeds from its initial public offering as of immediately prior to the Closing (and before, for the avoidance of doubt, giving effect to the exercise of redemption rights by any of the Company’s shareholders (the “Public Share Redemptions”)), minus (y) the aggregate amount of cash required to fund the ACT Share Redemptions and any other obligations to be funded from the Trust Account, plus (z) the aggregate cash proceeds actually received in respect of the PIPE Investment (as defined below) and (E) New OPAL will issue to OPAL Fuels, and OPAL Fuels will in turn distribute to OPAL HoldCo and Hillman RNG Investments, LLC (“Hillman”) a number of shares of Class D common stock, par value
$0.0001

PIPE Financing (Private Placement)
Concurrently with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, the Company entered into subscription agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with certain investors (the “PIPE Investors”), including, among others, an affiliate of the Company, as well as additional third-party investors. Pursuant to the Subscription Agreements, each investor agreed to subscribe for and purchase, and the Company agreed to issue and sell to such investors, immediately prior to the Closing, an aggregate of 12,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock for a purchase price of $10.00 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $125,000,000 (the “PIPE Investment”). Effective as of May 11, 2022, the Company and PIPE Investors representing $110,806,000 of the original PIPE Investment entered into amendments with respect to such PIPE Investors’ Subscription Agreements (the “Amended Subscription Agreements”), whereby the termination rights described in the Subscription Agreements were amended to extend the term of each Amended Subscription Agreement by 60 days to July 29, 2022.
The closing of the PIPE Investment is contingent upon, among other things, the substantially concurrent consummation of the Business Combination. The Subscription Agreements provide that the Company will grant the investors in the PIPE Investment certain customary registration rights.
Investor Rights Agreement
The Business Combination Agreement contemplates that, at the Closing, OPAL Fuels, Ares, Hillman and the Class B Shareholders (collectively the “New OPAL Holders”) will enter into an Investor Rights Agreement (the “Investor Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, (i) the Company and the Company’s Sponsor will agree to terminate the Registration and Shareholder Rights Agreement, dated as of March 25, 2021, entered into by them in connection with the Company’s initial public offering, (ii) New OPAL will provide the New OPAL Holders certain registration rights with respect to certain shares of New OPAL Class A common stock held by them or otherwise issuable to them pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, Second A&R LLC Agreement or the certificate of incorporation of New OPAL and (iii) the New OPAL Holders will agree not to transfer, sell, assign or otherwise dispose of their shares of New OPAL Class A common stock for up to 180 days following the Closing, subject to certain exceptions.
Prior to Business Combination
All activity for the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2022 relates to the Company’s formation and the initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”), which is described below, and, since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, a search for a business combination candidate. The Company will not generate any operating revenues until after the completion of its initial Business Combination, at the earliest. The Company will generate
non-operating
income in the form of interest income from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering.
The Company’s sponsor is ArcLight CTC Holdings II, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Sponsor”). The registration statement for the Company’s Initial Public Offering was declared effective on March 22, 2021. On March 25, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 31,116,305 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A ordinary shares included in the Units being offered, the “Public Shares”), including the partial exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase 3,616,305 additional Units (the “Over-Allotment Units”), at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of approximately $311.2 million (see Note 3), and incurring offering costs of approximately $17.6 million, of which approximately $10.9 million was for deferred underwriting commissions (see Note 6).
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated
the
private placement (“Private Placement”) of 9,223,261 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant with the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of approximately $9.2 million (see Note 4).

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement, approximately $311.2 million of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain of the proceeds of the Private Placement were placed in a trust account (“Trust Account”) with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee and invested in United States “government securities” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, or the Investment Company Act, having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule
2a-7
promulgated under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S. government treasury obligations, as determined by the Company, until the earlier of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the Trust Account as described below.
The Company was required to provide its holders of Public Shares (the “Public Shareholders”) with the opportunity to redeem all or a portion of their Public Shares upon the completion of a Business Combination either (i) in connection with a general meeting called to approve the Business Combination or (ii) by means of a tender offer. The Company sought shareholder approval of a Business Combination in connection with the Business Combination. The Public Shareholders were entitled to redeem their Public Shares for a pro rata portion of the amount then in the Trust Account. The
per-share
amount distributed to Public Shareholders who redeemed their Public Shares was not reduced by the deferred underwriting commissions the Company paid to the underwriters (as discussed in Note 6). These Public Shares are recorded at a redemption value and classified as temporary equity upon and following the completion of the Initial Public Offering, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 480 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity” (“ASC 480”).
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of June 30, 2022, the Company had approximately $219,000 in its operating bank account and working capital of approximately $662,000.
The Company’s liquidity needs up to June 30, 2022 had been satisfied through a payment of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares (as defined below), the loan under the Note from the Sponsor of approximately $172,000 (see Note 5) to the Company, and the net proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. The Note from the Sponsor was repaid in full on March 26, 2021. In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Company’s officers, directors and Initial Shareholders may, but are not obligated to, provide the Company Working Capital Loans (see Note 5). On May 16, 2022, the Company entered into a
non-interest
bearing promissory note with the Sponsor for $1,000,000. To date, there were no amounts outstanding under any Working Capital Loans.
On July 21, 2022, we used substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account to complete the Business Combination. Funds held in the Trust Account were also used to fund the redemption of publicly held Class A ordinary shares of ArcLight.
Management continues to evaluate the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic and has concluded that the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the unaudited condensed financial statements. The unaudited condensed financial statement does not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Note
2-Summary
of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and Article 8 of Regulation
S-X.
Accordingly, certain disclosures included in the annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted from these financial statements as they are not required for interim financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal accruals) considered for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2022.
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form
10-K
filed by the Company with the SEC on March 9, 2022.
Emerging Growth Company
The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the independent registered public accounting firm attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.
Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to
non-emerging
growth companies but any such an election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period, which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard.
This may make comparison of the Company’s financial statement with another public company that is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company that has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statement. Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. There were no cash equivalents as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Investments Held in Trust Account
The Company’s portfolio of investments is comprised of U.S. government securities, within the meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a maturity of 185 days or less, or investments in money market funds that invest in U.S. government securities and generally have a readily determinable fair value, or a combination thereof. When the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are comprised of U.S. government securities, the investments are classified as trading securities. When the Company’s investments held in the Trust Account are comprised of money market funds, the investments are recognized at fair value. Trading securities and investments in money market funds are presented on the balance sheet at fair value at the end of each reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of these securities is included in net gain on investments held in Trust Account in the accompanying statement of operations. The estimated fair values of investments held in the Trust Account are determined using available market information.
Concentration of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash accounts in a financial institution, which, at times, may exceed the Federal Depository Insurance Coverage of $250,000, and investments held in Trust Account. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company has not experienced losses on these accounts and management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risks on such accounts.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under the FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements,” approximates the carrying amounts represented in the condensed balance sheets.
Fair Value Measurements
The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). These tiers include:
 
   
Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
 
   
Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
 
   
Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.
In some circumstances, the inputs used to measure fair value might be categorized within different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In those instances, the fair value measurement is categorized in its entirety in the fair value hierarchy based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
Derivative warrant liabilities
The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments, including issued share purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to FASB ASC Topic 480 and ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (“ASC 815”). The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is
re-assessed
at the end of each reporting period.

OPAL FUELS INC.
(f/k/a ArcLight Clean Transition Corp. II)
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The warrants issued in the Initial Public Offering and the underwriters’ exercise of their overallotment option (the “Public Warrants”) and the Private Placement Warrants are recognized as derivative liabilities in accordance with ASC 815. Accordingly, the Company recognizes the warrant instruments as liabilities at fair value and adjusts the carrying value of the instruments to fair value at each reporting period for so long as they are outstanding. The initial fair value of the Public Warrants issued in connection with the Public Offering and the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants have been estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation model and subsequently, the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants have been estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation model at each measurement date. The fair value of Public Warrants have subsequently been measured based on the listed market price of such warrants. Derivative warrant liabilities are classified as
non-current
liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities. In May, 2022, the Company reversed the deferred underwriting fees as the underwriters resigned from their role in the Business Combination and thereby waived their entitlement of the deferred underwriting commissions (Note 6).
Offering Costs Associated with the Initial Public Offering
Offering costs consisted of legal, accounting, underwriting fees and other costs incurred through the Initial Public Offering that were directly related to the Initial Public Offering. Offering costs were allocated to the separable financial instruments issued in the Initial Public Offering based on a relative fair value basis, compared to total proceeds received. Offering costs associated with derivative warrant liabilities were expensed as incurred and presented as
non-operating
expenses in the statements of operations. Offering costs associated with issuance of the Class A ordinary shares were charged against the carrying value of the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption upon the completion of the Initial Public Offering. The Company classifies deferred underwriting commissions as
non-current
liabilities as their liquidation is not reasonably expected to require the use of current assets or require the creation of current liabilities.
Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company accounts for its Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption in accordance with ASC 480. Class A ordinary shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) is classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. Conditionally redeemable Class A ordinary shares (including Class A ordinary shares that features redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within the Company’s control) are classified as temporary equity. At all other times, Class A ordinary shares is classified as shareholders’ equity. The Company’s Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of uncertain future events. Accordingly, as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 31,116,305 Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption is presented at redemption value as temporary equity, outside of the shareholders’ equity section of the Company’s condensed balance sheets.
Immediately upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company recognized the
re-measurement
from initial book value to redemption amount, which approximates fair value. The change in the carrying value of Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption resulted in charges against additional
paid-in
capital (to the extent available), accumulated deficit, and Class A ordinary shares.
Income Taxes
The Company complies with the accounting and reporting requirements of FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”), which requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.
ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be
more-likely-than-not
to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company’s management determined that the Cayman Islands is the Company’s only major tax jurisdiction. The Company
 
10

OPAL FUELS INC.
(f/k/a ArcLight Clean Transition Corp. II)
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no unrecognized tax benefits and no amounts accrued for interest and penalties as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The Company is currently not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviation from its position.
There is currently no taxation imposed on income by the Government of the Cayman Islands. In accordance with Cayman federal income tax regulations, income taxes are not levied on the Company. Consequently, income taxes are not reflected in the Company’s financial statement. The Company’s management does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will materially change over the next twelve months.
Net Income (Loss) Per Ordinary Share
The Company has two classes of shares, Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Income and losses are shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. Net income (loss) per ordinary share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the periods. The Company has not considered the effect of the Public Warrants and the Private Placement to purchase an aggregate of 15,446,522, of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares in the calculation of diluted net income (loss) per share, because their exercise is contingent upon future events and their inclusion would be anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method. As a result, diluted net income (loss) per share is the same as basic net income (loss) per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the three months ended June 30, 2021 and for the period January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021.
Re-measurement
associated with the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption is excluded from earnings per share as the redemption value approximates fair value.

3-Initial
Public Offering
On March 25, 2021, the Company consummated its Initial Public Offering of 31,116,305 Units, including the partial exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase 3,616,305 Over-Allotment Units, at $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of approximately $311.2 million, and incurring offering costs of approximately $17.6 million, of which approximately $10.9 million was for deferred underwriting
commissions. In May, 2022, the Company reversed the $10.9 million of deferred underwriting fees as the underwriters resigned from their role in the Business Combination and thereby waived their entitlement of the deferred underwriting commissions (Note 6).
Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and
one-fifth
of one redeemable warrant (“Public Warrant”). Each whole Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Class A ordinary share at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment (see Note 9).
Note
4-Private
Placement
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the Company consummated the Private Placement of 9,223,261 Private Placement Warrants, at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant with the Sponsor, generating gross proceeds of approximately $9.2 million.
Each whole Private Placement Warrant is exercisable for one whole share of Class A ordinary shares at a price of $11.50 per share. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants to the Sponsor was added to the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering held in the Trust Account. If the Company does not complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period, the Private Placement Warrants will expire worthless. The Private Placement Warrants will be
non-redeemable
for cash and exercisable on a cashless basis so long as they are held by the Sponsor or its permitted transferees.
The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors agreed, subject to limited exceptions, not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Private Placement Warrants until 30 days after the completion of the initial Business Combination.
Note
5-Related
Party Transactions
Founder Shares
On January 20, 2021, the Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 for certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for issuance of 7,187,500 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”). On February 2, 2021, the Sponsor transferred 35,000 founder shares to each of Arno Harris,
Ja-Chin
Audrey Lee, Brian Goncher and Steven Berkenfeld, the Company’s independent directors. On March 22, 2021, the Company effected a share capitalization resulting in an aggregate of 7,906,250 Founder Shares issued and outstanding. The Sponsor agreed to forfeit up to an aggregate of 1,031,250 Founder Shares to the extent that the option to purchase additional units is not exercised in full by the underwriters, so that the Founder Shares will represent 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering. On March 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,616,305 Units, with the remaining portion of the over-allotment option expiring at the conclusion of the
45-day
option period. As a result, an aggregate of 127,174 Founder Shares were forfeited by the Sponsor upon the expiration of the over-allotment option.
The Initial Shareholders agreed not to transfer, assign or sell any of their Founder Shares until the earlier to occur of (A) one year after the completion of the initial Business Combination and (B) subsequent to the initial Business Combination, (x) if the closing price of Class A ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share subdivisions, share capitalizations, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any
30-trading
day period commencing at least 150 days after the initial Business Combination, or (y) the date on which the Company completes a liquidation, merger, share exchange or other similar transaction that results in all of the Public Shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.

Related Party Loans
On January 20, 2021, the Sponsor agreed to loan the Company up to $300,000 pursuant to a promissory note (the “Note”). The Note was
non-interest
bearing, unsecured and due upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. During the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through March 31, 2021, the Company borrowed approximately $172,000 under the Note and fully repaid the Note on March 26, 2021.
In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor, members of the Company’s founding team or any of their affiliates may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company funds as may be required (“Working Capital Loans”). If the Company completes a Business Combination, the Company would repay the Working Capital Loans out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company. Otherwise, the Working Capital Loans would be repaid only out of funds held outside the Trust Account. In the event that a Business Combination does not close, the Company may use a portion of proceeds held outside the Trust Account to repay the Working Capital Loans but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the Working Capital Loans. The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business Combination, without interest, or, at the lender’s discretion, up to $1.5 million of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into up to 1,500,000 private placement warrants of the post Business Combination entity at a price of $1.00 per warrant. The warrants would be identical to the Private Placement Warrants. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had no borrowings under the Working Capital Loans.
On May 16, 2022, the Company entered into a
non-interest
bearing $1,000,000 promissory note with the Sponsor. The promissory note is payable by the Company on the earlier of (i) September 25, 2023 and (ii) the date the Company consummates a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination.
Administrative Services Agreement
On March 25, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement that provided that, commencing on the date that the Company’s securities were first listed on Nasdaq through the earlier of consummation of the initial Business Combination and the liquidation, the Company agreed to pay the Sponsor $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to the Company. The Company incurred $30,000 and $30,000 in expenses in connection with such services for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, as reflected in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations. The Company incurred $60,000 and $40,000 in expenses in connection with such services for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and for the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021, respectively, as reflected in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations. The company ceased paying these quarterly fees and periodic cost reimbursements following the consummation of the Business Combination.
In addition, the Sponsor, officers and directors, or their respective affiliates will be reimbursed for any
out-of-pocket
expenses incurred in connection with activities on the Company’s behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable Business Combinations. The Company’s audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made by the Company to the Sponsor, executive officers or directors, or their affiliates. Any such payments prior to an initial Business Combination will be made using funds held outside the Trust Account.

Registration and Shareholder Rights Agreement
The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) were entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement signed upon the effective date of the Initial Public Offering. The holders of these securities were entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that the Company registers such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination. The Company will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Legal Proceedings
On February 14, 2022 and March 7, 2022, respectively, the Company received demand letters from two purported shareholders of the Company claiming certain alleged material omissions in the registration statement on Form
S-4,
initially filed with the SEC on February 8, 2022, surrounding its planned transaction with OPAL Fuels. Additional demand letters or complaints may follow in the future. The Company specifically denies all allegations in the demand letters that any additional disclosure is required and believes these purported shareholders’ claims are without merit.
Underwriting Agreement
The Company grant the underwriters a
45-day
option from the date of this prospectus to purchase up to 4,125,000 additional Units at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On March 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,616,305 Units. The remaining unexercised over-allotment option expired at the conclusion of the
45-day
option period.
The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $6.2 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per unit, or approximately $10.9 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes a Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.
Effective as of May 14, 2022, the underwriters from the Initial Public Offering resigned and withdrew from their role in the Business Combination and thereby waived their entitlement to the deferred underwriting commissions in the amount of approximately
 
$
10.9
 
million, which the Company has recorded as a gain on settlement of underwriter fees on the statement of shareholders’ equity for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 for
$10.6
million, which represents the original amount recorded to accumulated deficit, and the remaining balance representing the original amount recorded to the statement of operations of approximately
 
$280,000
was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, which represents the original amount.
Deferred Legal Fees
The Company entered into an engagement letter to obtain legal advisory services, pursuant to which the legal counsel agreed to defer the payment of their fees until the closing of the initial Business Combination. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company recorded an aggregate of approximately $6.2 million and $4.0 million, respectively, in connection with such arrangement as deferred legal fees in the accompanying condensed balance sheets.
Note 7 - Class A Ordinary Shares Subject to Possible Redemption
The Company’s Class A ordinary shares feature certain redemption rights that are considered to be outside of the Company’s control and subject to the occurrence of future events. The Company is authorized to issue 500,000,000 Class A ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Holders of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares are entitled to one vote for each share. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 31,116,305 shares of Class A ordinary shares outstanding, all of which were subject to possible redemption.

-The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 Class B ordinary shares with a par value of $0.0001 per share. On January 20, 2021, the Company issued 7,187,500 Class B ordinary shares. On March 22, 2021, the Company effected a share capitalization resulting in an aggregate of 7,906,250 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding. Of the 7,906,250 Class B ordinary shares outstanding, up to 1,031,250 Class B ordinary shares were subject to forfeiture, to the Company by the Initial Shareholders for no consideration to the extent that the underwriters’ over-allotment option was not exercised in full or in part, so that the Initial Shareholders would collectively own 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding ordinary shares after the Initial Public Offering. On March 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,616,305 Units with the remaining portion of the over-allotment option expiring at the conclusion of the
45-day
option period. As a result, an aggregate of 127,174 Founder Shares were forfeited by the Sponsor upon the expiration of the over-allotment option. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were 7,779,076 Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding.
Ordinary shareholders of record are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted on by shareholders. Except as described below, holders of Class A ordinary shares and holders of Class B ordinary shares will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the shareholders except as required by law.
The Class B ordinary shares will automatically convert into Class A ordinary shares, which such Class A ordinary shares delivered upon conversion will not have any redemption rights or be entitled to liquidating distributions if the Company does not consummate an initial Business Combination, at the time of the initial Business Combination or earlier at the option of the holders thereof at a ratio such that the number of Class A ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of all Founder Shares will equal, in the aggregate, on an
as-converted
basis, 20% of the sum of (i) the total number of ordinary shares issued and outstanding upon completion of the Initial Public Offering, plus (ii) the total number of Class A ordinary shares issued or deemed issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise of any equity-linked securities or rights issued or deemed issued, by the Company in connection with or in relation to the consummation of the initial Business Combination, excluding any Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities exercisable for or convertible into Class A ordinary shares issued, deemed issued, or to be issued, to any seller in the initial Business Combination and any Private Placement Warrants issued to the Sponsor, its affiliates or any member of the management team upon conversion of Working Capital Loans. In no event will the Class B ordinary shares convert into Class A ordinary shares at a rate of less than

Warrant Liabilities
As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had an aggregate of 15,446,522 warrants outstanding, comprised of 6,223,261 and 9,223,261 Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants, respectively.
Public Warrants may only be exercised for a whole number of shares. No fractional Public Warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Public Warrants will trade. The Public Warrants will become exercisable 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination; provided that the Company has an effective registration statement under the Securities Act covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants and a current prospectus relating to them is available and such shares are registered, qualified or exempt from registration under the securities, or blue sky, laws of the state of residence of the holder (or the Company permit holders to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis under certain circumstances). The Company agreed that as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 20 business days after the closing of the initial Business Combination, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC and have an effective registration statement covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants and to maintain a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares until the warrants expire or are redeemed, as specified in the warrant agreement. If a registration statement covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is not effective by the 60th day after the closing of the initial Business Combination, warrant holders may, until such time as there is an effective registration statement and during any period when the Company will have failed to maintain an effective registration statement, exercise warrants on a “cashless basis” in accordance with Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act or another exemption. Notwithstanding the above, if the Class A ordinary shares are at the time of any exercise of a warrant not listed on a national securities exchange such that they satisfy the definition of a “covered security” under Section 18(b)(1) of the Securities Act, the Company may, at its option, require holders of Public Warrants who exercise their warrants to do so on a “cashless basis” and, in the event the Company so elects, the Company will not be required to file or maintain in effect a registration statement, and in the event the Company does not so elect, it will use commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify the shares under applicable blue sky laws to the extent an exemption is not available.
The warrants have an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustments, and will expire five years after the completion of a Business Combination or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. In addition, if (x) the Company issues additional Class A ordinary shares or equity-linked securities for capital raising purposes in connection with the closing of the initial Business Combination at an issue price or effective issue price of less than $9.20 per ordinary share (with such issue price or effective issue price to be determined in good faith by the board of directors and, in the case of any such issuance to the Sponsor or its affiliates, without taking into account any Founder Shares held by the Sponsor or such affiliates, as applicable, prior to such issuance) (the “Newly Issued Price”), (y) the aggregate gross. proceeds from such issuances represent more than 60% of the total equity proceeds, and interest thereon, available for the funding of the initial Business Combination on the date of the consummation of the initial Business Combination (net of redemptions), and (z) the volume weighted average trading price of the Class A ordinary shares during the 20 trading day period starting on the trading day prior to the day on which the Company consummates its initial Business Combination (such price, the “Market Value”) is below $9.20 per share, the exercise price of the warrants will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 115% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $18.00 per share redemption trigger price described under “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to 180% of the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price, and the $10.00 per share redemption trigger price described under the caption “Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00” will be adjusted (to the nearest cent) to be equal to the higher of the Market Value and the Newly Issued Price.
The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants underlying the Units sold in the Initial Public Offering, except that the Private Placement Warrants and the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Placement Warrants will be
non-redeemable
so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or such purchasers’ permitted transferees. If the Private Placement Warrants are held by someone other than the Initial Shareholders or their permitted transferees, the Private Placement Warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by such holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants.

Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $18.00:
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (except as described herein with respect to the Private Placement Warrants):
 
   
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at a price of $0.01 per warrant;
 
   
upon not less than 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption to each warrant holder; and
 
   
if, and only if, the last reported sale price of Class A ordinary shares for any 20 trading days within a
30-trading
day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends the notice of redemption to the warrant holders (the “Reference Value”) equals or exceeds $18.00 per share (as adjusted).
The Company will not redeem the warrants as described above unless a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the Class A ordinary shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants is then effective and a current prospectus relating to those Class A ordinary shares is available throughout the
30-day
redemption period.
Redemption of warrants when the price per Class A ordinary share equals or exceeds $10.00:
Once the warrants become exercisable, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (except as described herein with respect to the Private Placement Warrants):
 
   
in whole and not in part;
 
   
at $0.10 per warrant upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption provided that holders will be able to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis prior to redemption and receive that number of shares determined by reference to an agreed table based on the redemption date and the “fair market value” of Class A ordinary shares;
 
   
if, and only if, the Reference Value equals or exceeds $10.00 per share (as adjusted); and
 
   
if the Reference Value is less than $18.00 per share (as adjusted), the Private Placement Warrants must also concurrently be called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants, as described above.
The “fair market value” of Class A ordinary shares for the above purpose shall mean the volume weighted average price of our Class A ordinary shares during the 10 trading days immediately following the date on which the notice of redemption is sent to the holders of warrants. In no event will the warrants be exercisable in connection with this redemption feature for more than 0.361 Class A ordinary shares per warrant (subject to adjustment).
In no event will the Company be required to net cash settle any warrant. If the Company is unable to complete a Business Combination within the Combination Period and the Company liquidates the funds held in the Trust Account, holders of warrants will not receive any of such funds with respect to their warrants, nor will they receive any distribution from the Company’s assets held outside of the Trust Account with the respect to such warrants. Accordingly, the warrants may expire worthless.

Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 are recognized at the beginning of the reporting period. The estimated fair value of the Public Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 fair value measurement on April 1, 2021 because the Public Warrants were separately listed and traded in an active market. There were no transfers between levels for the six months ended June 30, 2022 or for the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021.
Level 1 assets include investments in money market funds or U.S. Treasury securities. The Company uses inputs such as actual trade data, benchmark yields, quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources to determine the fair value of its investments.
The fair value of the Public Warrants issued in connection with the Public Offering and Private Placement Warrants were initially measured at fair value using a Monte Carlo simulation model and subsequently, the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants have been estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation model each measurement date. The fair value of Public Warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering have been subsequently measured based on the listed market price of such warrants, a Level 1 measurement. For the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recognized a gain/(loss) to the unaudited condensed statements of operations resulting from a decrease (increase) in the fair value of liabilities of approximately $4.3 million and ($11.2 million), respectively, presented as change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations. For the six months ended June 30, 2022 and for the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021, the Company recognized a gain/(loss) to the unaudited condensed statements of operations resulting from a decrease (increase) in the fair value of liabilities of approximately $9.6 million and ($11.0 million), respectively, presented as change in fair value of derivative warrant liabilities in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations.
The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants, and the Public Warrants prior to being separately listed and traded, is determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a Monte Carlo simulation are assumptions related to expected share-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The Company estimates the volatility of its warrants based on implied volatility from the Company’s traded warrants and from historical volatility

of select peer company’s ordinary shares that matches the expected remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury
zero-coupon
yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates remaining at zero.

Events
Management has evaluated subsequent events to determine if events or transactions occurring through the date the unaudited condensed financial statements were issued. Except as discussed below, there are no such events requiring potential adjustment to or disclosure in the unaudited condensed financial statements and the Company has concluded that all such events that would require recognition or disclosure have been recognized or disclosed.
Business Combination
On
 July 21, 2022, subsequent to the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022, consummated the previously announced Business Combination with OPAL HoldCo, and OPAL Fuels, pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement.
Holders of 27,364,124 Class A ordinary shares sold in ArcLight’s initial public offering (the “public shares”) properly exercised their right to have their public shares redeemed for a full pro rata portion of the trust account holding the proceeds from ArcLight’s initial public offering, calculated as of two business days prior to the Closing, which was approximately $10.00 per share, or $274,186,522 in the aggregate.
Cash proceeds of the Business Combination were funded through a combination of Company cash held in trust, net of redemptions, and $110,806,000 in aggregate gross proceeds to New OPAL from the PIPE Investment.
Credit Agreement
On August 4, 2022, OPAL Fuels Intermediate Holdco 2 LLC (“OPAL Intermediate Holdco 2”), a wholly-owned subsidiary the Company, entered into a new senior secured credit facility (the “Credit Agreement”) with OPAL Intermediate Holdco 2 as the Borrower, direct and indirect subsidiary of the Borrower as Guarantors, the lenders party thereto (the “Lenders”), Bank of Montreal as the administration agent, and Wilmington Trust as collateral and depositary agent. The Credit Agreement provides for an approximately two year delayed term loan facility (the “DDTL Facility”) of up to a maximum aggregate principal amount of $100.0 million and Debt Service Reserve facility (the “DSR Facility”) of up to a maximum aggregate principal amount of $5.0 million. The proceeds of the DDTL Facility are to be used to fund a portion of the construction of the RNG projects owned, either in full or through a joint venture with a third party, by the subsidiary Guarantors and the proceeds of DSR Facility are to be used solely to satisfy the balance to be maintained in the debt service reserve account.
The outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the benchmark rate of adjusted Term SOFR plus (i) for the period from closing to the earlier of the date of conversion of the construction loan to a term loan (the “Conversion Date”) or September 30, 2024, a spread of 3.5%, and (ii) thereafter a spread of 3.75%. Accrued interest on amounts outstanding under the DDTL Facility must be paid on the last day of each applicable interest period. The outstanding principal amount of the DDTL Facility is subject to quarterly amortization payments commencing September 30, 2024 equal to 2.5% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding term loan balance as of the Conversion Date, subject to adjustment based on certain mandatory prepayments, with the balance due at maturity. The DSR Facility is due at maturity. The Credit Agreement matures on August 4, 2027.
Forward Purchase Agreement
On July 18, 2022, the Company entered into a forward share purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Meteora Capital Partners and its affiliates (collectively, “Meteora”) pursuant to which, provided that so long as Meteora will have acquired from redeeming shareholders of the Company at least 1,900,000 ArcLight Class A ordinary shares as of the closing of the Company’s Business Combination with
OPAL
Fuels, and has not redeemed any of such the Company’s Class A ordinary shares, in connection with the Business Combination, then Meteora may elect to sell and transfer to the combined company following the Business Combination (the “Combined Company”), and the Combined Company will purchase from Meteora, on the six month anniversary of the closing of the Business Combination, up to 2,000,000 shares of Class A common stock of the Combined Company (the “Share Repurchase”) held by Meteora at the time of closing of the Business Combination (the “Meteora Shares”). Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used herein shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Purchase Agreement.

OPAL FUELS INC.
(f/k/a ArcLight Clean Transition Corp. II)
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The price at which Meteora has the right to sell the Meteora Shares to the Combined Company is $10.02 per share. Meteora will notify the Combined Company in writing not less than five (5) business days prior to the closing date of the Share Repurchase (the “Put Date”), specifying the number of Meteora Shares that the Combined Company will be required to purchase.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Meteora is also permitted at its election to sell any or all of the Meteora Shares in the open market commencing after the closing of the Business Combination, so long as the sale price exceeds $10.02 per share prior to the payment of any commissions due by Meteora for such sale.
Pursuant to an escrow agreement (the “Escrow Agreement”), to be entered into by and among Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Co. (“Continental”) and Meteora, to secure its purchase obligation to Meteora, at the closing of the Business Combination, the Company will place into escrow with Continental an aggregate amount of up to $20,040,000 (the “Escrow Amount”). If and when Meteora sells the Meteora Shares to any third party, an amount equal to the Combined Company’s purchase price obligation for that portion of such Meteora Shares, which Meteora sells in the open market, will be released from escrow to the Combined Company.
In exchange for the Company’s commitment to purchase the Meteora Shares on the Put Date, Meteora agrees to continue to hold, and not to redeem, the Meteora Shares prior to the closing date of the Business Combination. In consideration for Meteora’s entry into the Purchase Agreement and the transactions and covenants therein, the Company shall, at its option, (i) issue to Meteora 112,500 shares of Class A common stock of the Combined Company or (ii) pay to Meteora a cash payment in the amount of $600,000 upon consummation of the Business Combination.

The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed financial statements and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q
includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company’s or the Company’s management team’s expectations, hopes, intentions or strategies regarding the future, including those related to the Business Combination, and related matters, as well as all other statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Form
10-Q.
Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings.
Overview
We were incorporated on January 13, 2021 as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities (a “Business Combination”). Our sponsor is ArcLight CTC Holdings II, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (our “Sponsor”).
We completed our initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) on March 25, 2021 and completed a Business Combination on July 21, 2022 as further described in Note 1 – Description of Organization, Business Operations and Basis of Presentation and Note 11 – Subsequent Events, to our unaudited condensed financial information contained elsewhere in this report.
 
21

Results of Operations
Our entire activity since inception through June 30, 2022 relates to our formation, the preparation for the Initial Public Offering, and since the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the search for a prospective initial Business Combination. We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. We will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of our initial Business Combination. We will generate
non-operating
income in the form of interest income on cash and cash equivalents and
non-operating
income in the form of interest and investment income on investments held in Trust Account from the proceeds derived from the Initial Public Offering. We expect to incur increased expenses as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting, accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses. Additionally, we recognize
non-cash
gains and losses within other income (expense) related to changes in recurring fair value measurement of our warrant liabilities at each reporting period.
For the three months ended June 30, 2022, we had net income of approximately $3.3 million from changes in the value of derivative warrant liabilities of approximately $4.3 million, an unrealized gain on investments held in Trust Account of approximately $416,000 and a $280,000 gain on the settlement of underwriting fees, partially offset by approximately $1.7 million in general and administrative costs.
For the three months ended June 30, 2021, we had a net loss of approximately $11.6 million from changes in the value of derivative warrant liabilities of approximately $11.2 million and approximately $0.4 million in general and administrative costs.
For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we had a net income of approximately $7.2 million from changes in the value of derivative warrant liabilities of approximately $9.6 million, an unrealized gain on investments held in Trust Account of approximately $440,000 and a $280,000 gain on the settlement of underwriting fees, partially offset by approximately $3.1 million in general and administrative costs.
For the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021, we had a net loss of approximately $11.9 million from changes in the value of derivative warrant liabilities of approximately $11.0 million, financing costs of approximately $0.5 million and approximately $0.5 million in general and administrative costs.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of June 30, 2022, we had approximately $219,000 in our operating bank account and working capital of approximately $662,000.
Our liquidity needs up to June 30, 2022 had been satisfied through a payment of $25,000 from the Sponsor to cover certain expenses on behalf of the Company in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares (as defined below), a loan under a promissory note from our Sponsor of approximately $172,000 (the “Note”), and the net proceeds from the consummation of the Private Placement not held in the Trust Account. The Note was repaid in full on March 26, 2021. In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, our officers, directors and Initial Shareholders may, but are not obligated to, provide the Company with Working Capital Loans. On May 16, 2022, we entered into a
non-interest
bearing promissory note with the Sponsor for $1,000,000.
We continue to evaluate the impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic and have concluded that the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the condensed balance sheet. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
 
22

We used substantially all of the funds held in the Trust Account to complete the Business Combination and to fund the redemption of common stock.
Contractual Obligations
As of June 30, 2022, we do not have any long-term debt obligations, capital lease obligations, operating lease obligations, purchase obligations or long-term liabilities, other than an administrative services agreement to pay our Sponsor $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to us. The Company ceased paying these quarterly fees and periodic cost reimbursements following the consummation of the Business Combination.
Registration and Shareholder Rights
The holders of the Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans (and any Class A ordinary shares issuable upon the exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants that may be issued upon conversion of Working Capital Loans) are entitled to registration rights pursuant to a registration and shareholder rights agreement. At any time on or after the date the Company consummates a Business Combination, the holders of these securities will be entitled to make up to three demands, excluding short form demands, that we will register such securities. In addition, the holders have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the completion of the initial Business Combination. We will bear the expenses incurred in connection with the filing of any such registration statements.
Underwriting Agreement
We granted the underwriters a
45-day
option from the date of the prospectus to purchase up to 4,125,000 additional Units at the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions. On March 25, 2021, the underwriters partially exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 3,616,305 Units. The remaining unexercised over-allotment option expired at the conclusion of the
45-day
option period.
The underwriters were entitled to an underwriting discount of $0.20 per unit, or approximately $6.2 million in the aggregate, paid upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering. In addition, $0.35 per unit, or approximately $10.9 million in the aggregate, will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred fee will become payable to the underwriters from the amounts held in the Trust Account solely in the event that the Company completes the Business Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.
Effective as of May 14, 2022, the underwriters from the Initial Public Offering resigned and withdrew from their role in the Business Combination and thereby waived their entitlement to the deferred underwriting commissions in the amount of approximately $10.9 million, which the Company has recorded as a gain on settlement of underwriter fees on the statement of shareholders’ equity for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 for $10.6 million, which represents the original amount recorded to accumulated deficit, and the remaining balance representing the original amount recorded to the statement of operations of approximately $280,000 was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, which represents the original amount.
Administrative Services Agreement
On March 25, 2021, we entered into an agreement that provided that, commencing on the date that our securities were first listed on Nasdaq through the earlier of consummation of the initial Business Combination and the liquidation, we agreed to pay the sponsor $10,000 per month for office space, secretarial and administrative services provided to us. We incurred $30,000 and $30,000 in expenses in connection with such services for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, as reflected in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations. We incurred $60,000 and $40,000 in expenses in connection with such services for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and for the period from January 13, 2021 (inception) through June 30, 2021, respectively, as reflected in the accompanying unaudited condensed statements of operations. The Company ceased paying these quarterly fees and periodic cost reimbursements following the consummation of the Business Combination.
In addition, the sponsor, officers and directors, or their respective affiliates will be reimbursed for any
out-of-pocket
expenses incurred in connection with activities on our behalf, such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable Business Combinations. Our audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made by us to the sponsor, executive officers or directors, or their affiliates. Any such payments prior to an initial Business Combination will be made using funds held outside the Trust Account.
 
23

Deferred Legal Fees
We entered into an engagement letter to obtain legal advisory services, pursuant to which our legal counsel agreed to defer the payment of their fees until the closing of the initial Business Combination. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company recorded an aggregate of approximately $6.2 million and $4.0 million, respectively, in connection with such arrangement as deferred legal fees in the accompanying condensed balance sheets.
Critical Accounting Policies
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. A summary of our significant accounting policies is included in Note 2 to our condensed financial statements in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report. Certain of our accounting policies are considered critical, as these policies are the most important to the depiction of our unaudited condensed financial statements and require significant, difficult or complex judgments, often employing the use of estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. Such policies are summarized in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section in our 2021 Annual Report on Form
10-K
filed with the SEC on March 9, 2022. There have been no significant changes in the application of our critical accounting policies during the six months ended June 30, 2022.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
See Note 2 to the unaudited condensed financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report for a discussion of recent accounting pronouncements.
Off-Balance
Sheet Arrangements
As of June 30, 2022, we did not have any
off-balance
sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation
S-K.
JOBS Act
The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We qualify as an “emerging growth company” and under the JOBS Act are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for
non-emerging
growth companies. As a result, the unaudited condensed financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.
Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an “emerging growth company,” we choose to rely on such exemptions we may not be required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor’s attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of
non-emerging
growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the PCAOB regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis) and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a period of five years following the completion of our Initial Public Offering or until we are no longer an “emerging growth company,” whichever is earlier.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule
12b-2
of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information otherwise required under this item.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022, as such, the term is defined in Rules
13a-15(e)
and
15d-15(e)
under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that during the period covered by this Report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2022, because of a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Specifically, the Company’s management has concluded that our control around the interpretation and accounting for certain complex features of the Class A ordinary shares and warrants issued by the Company was not effectively designed or maintained. This material weakness resulted in the restatement of the Company’s balance sheet as of March 25, 2021 and its interim financial statements for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021. Additionally, this material weakness could result in a misstatement of the warrant liability, Class A ordinary shares and related accounts and disclosures that would result in a material misstatement of the financial statements that would not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022 covered by this Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q
that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting except for the below:
Our principal executive officer and principal financial officer performed additional accounting and financial analyses and other post-closing procedures including consulting with subject matter experts related to the accounting for complex features of the Class A ordinary shares and warrants. The Company’s management has expended, and will continue to expend, a substantial amount of effort and resources for the remediation and improvement of our internal control over financial reporting. While we have processes to properly identify and evaluate the appropriate accounting technical pronouncements and other literature for all significant or unusual transactions, we have expanded and will continue to improve these processes to ensure that the nuances of such transactions are effectively evaluated in the context of the increasingly complex accounting standards.
PART
II-OTHER
INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings
On February 14, 2022 and March 7, 2022, respectively, the Company received demand letters from two purported shareholders of the Company claiming certain alleged material omissions in the registration statement on Form
S-4,
initially filed with the SEC on February 8, 2022, surrounding its planned transaction with OPAL Fuels. Additional demand letters or complaints may follow in the future. The Company specifically denies all allegations in the demand letters that any additional disclosure is required and believes these purported shareholders’ claims are without merit.
 
25

Item 1A. Risk Factors.
As a result of closing of the Business Combination on July 21, 2022, the risk factors previously disclosed Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 no longer apply. For risk factors relating to our business following the Business Combination, please refer to the section “Risk Factors” in the final prospectus with respect to the Business Combination, filed with the SEC on June 27, 2022 (the “Prospectus”). Any of these factors could result in a significant or material adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. Additional risk factors not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business or results of operations.
Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds from Registered Securities
Unregistered Sales
On January 20, 2021, our Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 for certain expenses on our behalf in exchange for issuance of 7,187,500 Class B ordinary shares (the “Founder Shares”). On February 2, 2021, our Sponsor transferred 35,000 Founder Shares to each of Arno Harris,
Ja-Chin
Audrey Lee, Brian Goncher and Steven Berkenfeld, our independent director nominees. On March 22, 2021, we effected a share capitalization resulting in an aggregate of 7,906,250 Founder Shares issued and outstanding. Up to 1,031,250 Founder Shares were subject to forfeiture by the Sponsor, to the extent that the option to purchase additional units was not exercised in full by the underwriters, so that the Founder Shares would represent 20% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares after the Initial Public Offering. The underwriters partially exercised their over-allotment option on March 22, 2021, with the remaining portion of the over-allotment option expiring at the conclusion of the
45-day
option period. As a result, an aggregate of 127,174 Founder Shares were forfeited by the Sponsor upon the expiration of the over-allotment option.
No underwriting discounts or commissions were paid with respect to such sales.
Use of Proceeds
In connection with the Initial Public Offering and the underwriters of their over-allotment option, we incurred offering costs of approximately $15.9 million (including deferred underwriting commissions of approximately $9.8 million). Other incurred offering costs consisted principally of preparation fees related to the Initial Public Offering. After deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions (excluding the deferred portion, which amount will be payable upon consummation of the Initial Business Combination, if consummated) and the Initial Public Offering expenses, $277.5 million of the net proceeds from our Initial Public Offering and certain of the proceeds from the private placement of the Private Placement Warrants (or $10.00 per Unit sold in the Initial Public Offering) was placed in the Trust Account. The net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement Warrants are held in the Trust Account and invested as described elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q.
There has been no material change in the planned use of the proceeds from the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement as is described in the Company’s final prospectus related to the Initial Public Offering.
