(a) On April 22, 2021, William P. Foley II resigned as a member of the board of directors (the “Board”) of Austerlitz Acquisition Corporation II (the “Company”).

Following his resignation, Mr. Foley will continue to be engaged with the Company in a consulting capacity pursuant to which he will, among other things, continue to advise on the Company’s strategic initiatives, including with respect to prospective acquisition targets.

(b) On April 22, 2021, the Board elected Frank P. Willey as a member of the Board to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Foley’s departure. In connection with his appointment, Mr. Willey will enter into an indemnity agreement on substantially the same terms as the form thereof previously entered into by and between the Company and each of its other directors in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. In addition, Mr. Willey will receive 25,000 shares of the Company’s Class B ordinary shares and 25,000 shares of the Company’s Class C ordinary shares from the Company’s sponsor, Austerlitz Acquisition Sponsor, LP II (“Sponsor”). Mr. Willey has agreed to become a party to that certain letter agreement, dated March 2, 2021, by and between the Company and Sponsor (the “Letter Agreement”) and will enter into a joinder to the Letter Agreement. The director indemnification agreement and the Letter Agreement were each described in, and the forms of which were filed as exhibits to, the Company’s registration statement relating to the Company’s initial public offering (File No. 333-252933).
