Forward Purchase Contract
Ladies and Gentlemen:
We are pleased to accept the offer CFAC Holdings IV, LLC (the “Subscriber” or “you”) has made to purchase an aggregate of (i) 1,500,000 units (the “Units”) of CF Acquisition Corp. IV, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), each Unit comprising one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-third of one warrant (“Warrant”) and (ii) 375,000 Shares (the “Forward Purchase Shares”), for an aggregate purchase price of $15,000,000. The Units, the securities underlying the Units and the Forward Purchase Shares, collectively, are hereinafter referred to as the “Securities”. Each whole Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Share at an exercise price of $11.50 per Share during the period commencing on the later of (i) twelve (12) months from the date of the closing of the Company’s initial public offering of units, each comprising one share of Class A Common Stock and one-third of one Warrant (the “IPO”), such IPO expected as of the date hereof to generate gross proceeds to the Company in the amount of $450,000,000 (exclusive of the over-allotment option to be granted to the underwriters) and (ii) thirty (30) days following the consummation of the Company’s initial business combination (the “Business Combination”) and expiring on the fifth anniversary of the consummation of the Business Combination. This letter agreement (this “Agreement”) sets forth the terms on which the Company is willing to sell the Securities to the Subscriber, and the Company and the Subscriber’s agreements regarding such Securities, are as follows:
1. Purchase of the Securities. For the sum of $15,000,000 (the “Purchase Price”), at the Closing (as defined herein), the Company agrees to sell the Securities to the Subscriber, and the Subscriber hereby agrees to purchase the Securities from the Company, subject to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement.
2. Representations, Warranties and Agreements.
2.1 Subscriber’s Representations, Warranties and Agreements. To induce the Company to issue the Securities to the Subscriber, the Subscriber hereby represents and warrants to the Company and agrees with the Company as follows:
2.1.1 No Government Recommendation or Approval. The Subscriber understands that no federal or state agency has passed upon or made any recommendation or endorsement of the offering of the Securities.
2.1.2 No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the consummation by the Subscriber of the transactions contemplated hereby do not violate, conflict with or constitute a default under (i) the formation and governing documents of the Subscriber, (ii) any agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Subscriber is a party, (iii) any law, statute, rule or regulation to which the Subscriber is subject, or (iv) any agreement, order, judgment or decree to which the Subscriber is subject.
2.1.3 Organization and Authority. The Subscriber is a Delaware limited liability company, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of Delaware and possesses all requisite power and authority necessary to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Upon execution and delivery by the Subscriber and the Company, this Agreement is a legal, valid and binding agreement of Subscriber, enforceable against Subscriber in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity).
2.1.4 Experience, Financial Capability and Suitability. Subscriber is: (i) sophisticated in financial matters, is able to evaluate the risks and benefits of the investment in the Securities and has the capacity to protect its own interests and (ii) able to bear the economic risk of its investment in the Securities for an indefinite period of time because the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act (as defined below) and therefore cannot be sold unless pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act (including pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement (as defined below)) or an exemption from such registration is available with respect to such sale. Subscriber is able to afford a complete loss of Subscriber’s investment in the Securities.
2.1.5 Access to Information; Independent Investigation. Prior to the execution of this Agreement, the Subscriber has had the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from representatives of the Company concerning an investment in the Company, as well as the finances, operations, business and prospects of the Company, and the opportunity to obtain additional information to verify the accuracy of all information so obtained. In determining whether to make this investment, Subscriber has relied solely on Subscriber’s own knowledge and understanding of the Company and its business based upon Subscriber’s own due diligence investigation and the information furnished pursuant to this paragraph. Subscriber understands that no person has been authorized to give any information or to make any representations which were not furnished pursuant to this Section 2 and Subscriber has not relied on any other representations or information in making its investment decision, whether written or oral, relating to the Company, its operations and/or its prospects.
2.1.6 Regulation D Offering. Subscriber represents that it is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and acknowledges the sale contemplated hereby is being made in reliance on a private placement exemption to “accredited investors” within the meaning of Section 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act or similar exemptions under federal or state law.
2.1.7 Investment Purposes. The Subscriber is purchasing the Securities solely for investment purposes, for the Subscriber’s own account and not for the account or benefit of any other person, and not with a view towards the distribution or dissemination thereof. The Subscriber did not decide to enter into this Agreement as a result of any general solicitation or general advertising within the meaning of Rule 502 under the Securities Act.
2.1.8 Restrictions on Transfer; Shell Company. Subscriber understands the Securities are being offered in a transaction not involving a public offering within the meaning of the Securities Act. Subscriber understands the Securities will be “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144(a)(3) under the Securities Act and Subscriber understands that any certificates representing the Securities will contain a legend in respect of such restrictions. If in the future the Subscriber decides to offer, resell, pledge or otherwise transfer the Securities, such Securities may be offered, resold, pledged or otherwise transferred only pursuant to: (i) registration under the Securities Act, or (ii) an available exemption from registration. Subscriber agrees that if any transfer of its Securities or any interest therein is proposed to be made, as a condition precedent to any such transfer, Subscriber may be required to deliver to the Company an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company. Absent registration or an exemption, the Subscriber agrees not to resell the Securities. Subscriber further acknowledges that because the Company is a shell company, Rule 144 may not be available to the Subscriber for the resale of the Securities until one (1) year following consummation of the Business Combination, despite technical compliance with the requirements of Rule 144 and the release or waiver of any contractual transfer restrictions.
2.1.9 No Governmental Consents. No governmental, administrative or other third party consents or approvals are required or necessary on the part of Subscriber in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
2.2 Company’s Representations, Warranties and Agreements. To induce the Subscriber to purchase the Securities, the Company hereby represents and warrants to the Subscriber and agrees with the Subscriber as follows:
2.2.1 Organization and Corporate Power. The Company is a Delaware corporation and is qualified to do business in every jurisdiction in which the failure to so qualify would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the financial condition, operating results or assets of the Company. The Company possesses all requisite corporate power and authority necessary to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
2.2.2 No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby do not violate, conflict with or constitute a default under (i) the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Company, (ii) any agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Company is a party or (iii) any law, statute, rule or regulation to which the Company is subject, or (iv) any agreement, order, judgment or decree to which the Company is subject.
2.2.3 Title to Securities. Upon issuance in accordance with, and payment pursuant to, the terms hereof, the Securities will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. Upon issuance in accordance with, and payment pursuant to, the terms hereof the Subscriber will have or receive good title to the Securities, free and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances of any kind, other than (a) transfer restrictions described herein and under federal and state securities laws, and (b) liens, claims or encumbrances imposed due to the actions of the Subscriber. The Company will reserve sufficient Shares to permit issuance of all of the Securities, including full exercise of the Warrants.
2.2.4 No Adverse Actions. There are no actions, suits, investigations or proceedings pending, threatened against or affecting the Company which: (i) seek to restrain, enjoin, prevent the consummation of or otherwise affect the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or (ii) question the validity or legality of any such transactions or seeks to recover damages or to obtain other relief in connection with any such transactions.
2.2.5 Authorization. All corporate action on the part of the Company, its officers, directors and stockholders necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Securities, the performance of all obligations of the Company required pursuant hereto, and the authorization, issuance (or reservation for issuance) of the Securities, has been taken. Upon execution and delivery by the Company and each of the other parties of this Agreement, this Agreement constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of the Company, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity). When issued, the Units and Warrants will constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Company, enforceable in accordance with their respective terms.
2.2.6 Capitalization. The authorized capital stock of the Company on the date hereof, consists of 240,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock, no shares of which are issued and outstanding, 40,000,000 shares of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B Common Stock” and, collectively with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”), 11,500,000 shares of which are issued and outstanding (including up to 1,500,000 shares subject to forfeiture in the event that the underwriters’ over-allotment option is not exercised in full), and 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, no shares of which are issued and outstanding. All issued and outstanding shares of the Class B Common Stock (a) have been duly authorized and validly issued, and (b) are fully paid and non-assessable. The rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions of the Common Stock are as stated in the Certificate of Incorporation currently on file with the Delaware Secretary of State. There are no outstanding rights, options, warrants, preemptive rights, rights of first refusal or similar rights for the purchase or acquisition from the Company of any securities of the Company.
2.2.7 No Governmental Consents. No governmental, administrative or other third party consents or approvals are required or necessary on the part of the Company in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, other than the filing of a Form D with the Securities and Exchange Commission and such state Blue Sky, FINRA and Nasdaq consents and approvals as may be required.

Each such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which it was given, and shall not constitute a continuing waiver or consent.
6.6 Assignment. This Agreement, and the rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, in whole or in party, by either party hereto without the prior written consent of the other party, except that the Subscriber may assign this Agreement to any of its affiliates.

Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create any rights or obligations except among the parties hereto, and no person or entity shall be regarded as a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement.
6.8 Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of New York applicable to contracts wholly performed within the borders of such state, without giving effect to the conflict of law principles thereof. The parties hereto (i) agree that any action, proceeding, claim or dispute arising out of, or relating in any way to, this Agreement shall be brought and enforced in the federal or state courts of New York City, in the State of New York, and irrevocably submit to such jurisdiction and venue, which jurisdiction and venue shall be exclusive and (ii) waive any objection to such exclusive jurisdiction and venue or that such courts represent an inconvenient forum.
6.9 Severability. In the event that any court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that any provision, or any portion thereof, contained in this Agreement shall be unreasonable or unenforceable in any respect, then such provision shall be deemed limited to the extent that such court deems it reasonable and enforceable, and as so limited shall remain in full force and effect. In the event that such court shall deem any such provision, or portion thereof, wholly unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect.
6.10 No Waiver of Rights, Powers and Remedies. No failure or delay by a party hereto in exercising any right, power or remedy under this Agreement, and no course of dealing between the parties hereto, shall operate as a waiver of any such right, power or remedy of such party. No single or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy under this Agreement by a party hereto, nor any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce any such right, power or remedy, shall preclude such party from any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy hereunder. The election of any remedy by a party hereto shall not constitute a waiver of the right of such party to pursue other available remedies. No notice to or demand on a party not expressly required under this Agreement shall entitle the party receiving such notice or demand to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances or constitute a waiver of the rights of the party giving such notice or demand to any other or further action in any circumstances without such notice or demand.
6.11 Survival of Representations and Warranties. All representations and warranties made by the parties hereto in this Agreement or in any other agreement, certificate or instrument provided for or contemplated hereby, shall survive the execution and delivery hereof and any investigations made by or on behalf of the parties.

Each of the parties hereto represents and warrants to the other that no broker, finder or other financial consultant has acted on its behalf in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby in such a way as to create any liability on the other. Each of the parties hereto agrees to indemnify and save the other harmless from any claim or demand for commission or other compensation by any broker, finder, financial consultant or similar agent claiming to have been employed by or on behalf of such party and to bear the cost of legal expenses incurred in defending against any such claim.
6.13 Headings and Captions. The headings and captions of the various subdivisions of this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and shall in no way modify or affect the meaning or construction of any of the terms or provisions hereof.
6.14 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which when taken together shall be considered one and the same agreement and shall become effective when counterparts have been signed by each party and delivered to the other party, it being understood that both parties need not sign the same counterpart. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission or any other form of electronic delivery, such signature shall create a valid and binding obligation of the party executing (or on whose behalf such signature is executed) with the same force and effect as if such signature page were an original thereof.
6.15 Construction. The words “include,” “includes,” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by “without limitation.” Pronouns in masculine, feminine, and neuter genders will be construed to include any other gender, and words in the singular form will be construed to include the plural and vice versa, unless the context otherwise requires. The words “this Agreement,” “herein,” “hereof,” “hereby,” “hereunder,” and words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular subdivision unless expressly so limited. The parties hereto intend that each representation, warranty, and covenant contained herein will have independent significance. If any party hereto has breached any representation, warranty, or covenant contained herein in any respect, the fact that there exists another representation, warranty or covenant relating to the same subject matter (regardless of the relative levels of specificity) which such party hereto has not breached will not detract from or mitigate the fact that such party hereto is in breach of the first representation, warranty, or covenant.
6.16 Mutual Drafting. This Agreement is the joint product of the Subscriber and the Company and each provision hereof has been subject to the mutual consultation, negotiation and agreement of such parties and shall not be construed for or against any party hereto.
7. [Intentionally Omitted].
8. Indemnification. Each party shall indemnify the other against any loss, cost or damages (including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses) incurred as a result of such party’s breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement in this Agreement.
9. Term. The Subscriber’s obligation to acquire the Securities hereunder, and the Company’s obligation to sell the Securities hereunder, shall be in effect until the earlier of (i) the consummation of the Business Combination within the time frame permitted by the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter”), which, as of the date hereof, is expected to be 24 months from the consummation of the IPO, including any extensions beyond such term effected pursuant to the terms of the Charter, and (ii) the liquidation of the Company in the event that the Company is unable to consummate the Business Combination within the time frame permitted by the Charter (including any extensions).
10. Disclosure. The Subscriber hereby acknowledges that (i) the terms of this Agreement will be disclosed in the Registration Statement, (ii) this Agreement will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and (iii) the Company will disclose the terms of this Agreement to potential IPO investors and to potential Business Combination targets.
11. Waiver of Claims Against Trust. The Subscriber hereby acknowledges that it is aware that the Company will establish a trust account (the “Trust Account”) for the benefit of its public stockholders upon the closing of the IPO. The Subscriber hereby agrees that it has no right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account, except for redemption and liquidation rights the Subscriber may have in respect of any Shares issued as part of the units sold in the IPO (“Public Shares”) held by the Subscriber, if any. The Subscriber hereby agrees that it shall have no right of set-off or any right, title, interest or claim of any kind (“Claim”) to, or to any monies in, the Trust Account, and hereby irrevocably waives any Claim to, or to any monies in, the Trust Account that it may have now or in the future, except for redemption and liquidation rights the Subscriber may have in respect of any Public Shares held by the Subscriber, if any. In the event the Subscriber has any Claim against the Company under this Agreement, the Subscriber shall pursue such Claim solely against the Company and its assets outside the Trust Account and not against the property or any monies in the Trust Account, except for redemption and liquidation rights the Subscriber may have in respect of any Public Shares held by the Subscriber, if any.
