Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


In connection with the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders (the “Extension Meeting”) of Tailwind International Acquisition Corp., a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company”), to extend the date by which the Company has to consummate a business combination (the “Articles Extension”) from February 23, 2023 to August 23, 2023, the Company and Tailwind International Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), will enter into a non-redemption agreement (the “Non-Redemption Agreement”) with one or more unaffiliated third party or parties, pursuant to which such third party or third parties will agree not to redeem Class A ordinary shares of the Company (“Non-Redeemed Shares”) in connection with the Articles Extension. In exchange for the foregoing commitments not to redeem such Class A ordinary shares, the Sponsor has agreed to transfer Class B ordinary shares of the Company held by the Sponsor to such third party or third parties immediately following consummation of an initial business combination if they continue to hold such Non-Redeemed Shares through the Extension Meeting. The Non-Redemption Agreements will increase the amount of funds that remain in the Company’s trust account following the Extension Meeting.


The foregoing summary of the Non-Redemption Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Non-Redemption Agreement filed herein as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
