SUPPLEMENT TO THE PROXY STATEMENT DATED NOVEMBER 13, 2023

FOR THE SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

TO BE HELD ON DECEMBER 4, 2023

 

Explanatory Note

 

On November 13, 2023, Clean Earth Acquisitions Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), filed a definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the Company’s special meeting of stockholders to be held virtually on December 4, 2023, and at any adjournment or postponement thereof (the “Meeting”). The Company is providing this supplement to the Proxy Statement (this “Supplement”) to revise the proxy card included with the Proxy Statement as it was filed with the SEC (the “Proxy Card”) to (a) include inadvertently omitted language from the summary text of Proposal No. 1 on the Proxy Card to be consistent with the Company’s summary and full description of Proposal No. 1 in the Proxy Statement, (b) revise language that misstated how a proxy would be voted absent specific direction from the stockholder as to Proposal No. 2 and (c) correct scrivener’s errors within the Proxy Card. A revised Proxy Card reflecting such corrections is enclosed with this Supplement.

 

Corrections

 

Corrections (a) and (b) are marked below, with new text in bold and underline, and deleted text in strikethrough.

 

(a)“1. A proposal to approve and adopt the Business Combination Agreement, dated as of October 12, 2022, as amended on April 12, 2023 (the “Business Combination Agreement”), a copy of which is attached to the accompanying priority proxy statement as Annex A, to approve the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement (the “business combination”) which provides that, among other things, Alternus, as the sole beneficial and record holder of all of the “Alternus Interests” (being all of the issued and outstanding equity interest owned by Alternus in its subsidiaries other than certain retained subsidiaries at such time (the “Acquired Subsidiaries”)), will transfer to Clean Earth, and Clean Earth will receive from Alternus, all of the Alternus Interests, as consideration in exchange for the issuance and transfer by Clean Earth to Alternus at the Closing of 27,500,000 shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company (the “common stock”), subject to a working capital adjustment of up to 1,000,000 shares, plus up to 20,000,000 shares pursuant to an earnout (the “Earnout Shares,”) (the “Business Combination Proposal”);”

 

The above correction (a) to the Proxy Card is consistent with the Company’s summary of Proposal No. 1, which appears on the first page of the Proxy Statement cover page and letter to stockholders (the “Cover”), the first page of the Notice of Special Meeting of Stockholders of Clean Earth Acquisitions Corp. (the “Notice”) and page xix of the Proxy Statement, as well as the Company’s full description of Proposal No. 1 beginning on page 92 of the Proxy Statement.

 

(b)THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS PROXY WHEN PROPERLY EXECUTED AND DELIVERED WILL BE VOTED IN THE MANNER DIRECTED HEREIN BY THE UNDERSIGNED STOCKHOLDERS(S). IF NO SPECIFIC DIRECTION IS GIVEN AS TO THE PROPOSALS ON THE REVERSE SIDE, THIS PROXY WILL BE VOTED “FOR” PROPOSALS 1 THROUGH 7 AND “FOR”EACH DIRECTOR NOMINEE 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 AND 7, “FOR” EACH DIRECTOR NOMINEE, AND “AGAINST” PROPOSAL 2.

 

The above correction (b) to the Proxy Card is consistent with the Company’s description of what happens if a stockholder fails to vote by proxy or in person with respect to Proposal No. 2, which appears on the final page of the Cover, the final page of the Notice and pages xxvi, xxx, 86 and 153 of the Proxy Statement.

 

 

 

 

With the exception of the foregoing revisions to the Proxy Card, all the other information in the Proxy Statement and the Proxy Card remains unchanged. We have not changed or added to the matters to be considered by our stockholders at the Meeting, and this Supplement does not change the recommendation of our board of directors with respect to any of the proposals described in the Proxy Statement.

 

Voting and Submitting Your Proxy

 

For stockholders who have already voted, a previous vote in favor of Proposal No. 1 will be counted as a vote in favor of such proposal, as corrected by this Supplement, and a previous vote against Proposal No. 1 will be counted as a vote against such proposal, unless, in each case, the original proxy is revoked by the stockholder, which can be done by submitting a new proxy.

 

If you have not yet voted, please vote promptly. Our stockholders may vote electronically before the Meeting by visiting www.voteproxy.com or by mail by completing, signing, dating and returning the Proxy Card enclosed with the Proxy Statement as soon as possible. You may also vote during the Meeting by visiting https://web.lumiagm.com/290463470 (passcode “cleanearth2023”). If you properly complete, sign, date and return your Proxy Card previously mailed to you, your shares will be voted in accordance with your instructions. The Proxy Card revisions described in this Supplement were finalized prior to being mailed to the Company’s stockholders as of the record date for the Meeting. Thus, we are not mailing a revised Proxy Card to you prior to the Meeting, and the original Proxy Card mailed to you remains valid. The named proxies will vote all shares at the Meeting for which proxies have been properly submitted and not revoked.

 

We recommend that you submit your proxy even if you plan to virtually attend the Meeting. If you vote by proxy, you may change your vote by submitting a later dated proxy before the deadline indicated in the Proxy Statement or by voting electronically at the Meeting. Voting instructions are printed on the Proxy Card or the voting information form you received. Either method of submitting a proxy will enable your shares to be represented and voted at the Meeting.

 

You may attend the Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Meeting and submit your questions during the Meeting by visiting https://web.lumiagm.com/290463470 (passcode “cleanearth2023”) and entering your control number, which is included on the proxy card you received.

 

If you need assistance in completing your Proxy Card or have questions regarding the Meeting, please contact Morrow, the proxy solicitation agent for the Company, by calling (800) 662-5200, or banks and brokers can call collect at (203) 658-9400, or by emailing CLIN.info@investor.morrowsodali.com.

 

Except as described in this Supplement, none of the information presented in the Proxy Statement is affected by this Supplement. This Supplement does not provide all of the information that is important to your voting decisions at the Meeting, and the Proxy Statement contains other important additional information. This Supplement should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement.

  

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING AVAILABILITY OF PROXY MATERIALS FOR THE SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS TO BE HELD VIRTUALLY ON DECEMBER 4, 2023: This Supplement, the Proxy Statement and the Proxy Card are available, free of charge at https://www.astproxyportal.com/ast/26701 or on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
