Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 11, 2023, GSR II Meteora Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”), GSR II Meteora Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”), Lux Vending, LLC dba Bitcoin Depot (“Lux Vending”) and BT Assets, Inc. (“BT Assets”) entered into a Third Amendment (the “Third Amendment”) to that certain Transaction Agreement, dated August 24, 2022 (as it may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Transaction Agreement”), by and among the Company, the Sponsor, Lux Vending and BT Assets. The transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement as described below are hereinafter referred to as the “Business Combination.” All of the terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Transaction Agreement.

The Third Amendment provides for an amendment to the definition of the “Agreement End Date” in the Transaction Agreement and changes the date listed therein from May 15, 2023 to the date that is the earlier of (i) July 15, 2023 and (ii) forty-five (45) days following the date the Proxy Statement containing the 2023 Q1 Financial Statements has been filed with the SEC or such later date as may be mutually agreed upon by the Company and Lux Vending. All other terms of the Transaction Agreement remain unmodified and in full force and effect.

The foregoing description of the Third Amendment is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Third Amendment, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 2.1 hereto, and the terms of which are incorporated by reference.

Additional Information

Important Information About the Business Combination and Where to Find It

The Business Combination will be submitted to the stockholders of the Company for their consideration. The Company has filed a preliminary proxy statement of the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), copies of which will be mailed (if and when available) to all Company stockholders once definitive. The Company also plans to file other documents with the SEC regarding the Business Combination. The Company will mail copies of the definitive proxy statement and other relevant documents to its stockholders as of the record date established for voting on the Business Combination. The Company’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the preliminary proxy statement and any amendments thereto and, once available, the definitive proxy statement, as well as all other relevant materials filed or that will be filed with the SEC, in connection with the Company’s solicitation of proxies for its special meeting of stockholders to be held to approve, among other things, the proposed Business Combination, because these documents will contain important information about the Company, Lux Vending, BT Assets, Inc. and the proposed Business Combination. Stockholders may also obtain a copy of the preliminary proxy statement or, when available, the definitive proxy statement, as well as other documents filed with the SEC regarding the Business Combination and other documents filed with the SEC by the Company, without charge, at the SEC’s website located at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to Cody Slach or Alex Kovtun, (949) 574-3860, GSRM@gatewayir.com.

Forward-Looking Statements

The information included herein and in any oral statements made in connection herewith include “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of words such as “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “intend,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “seek,” “target” or other similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of financial and performance metrics and expectations and timing related to potential benefits, terms and timing of the Business Combination. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified herein, and on the current expectations of BT Assets’, Lux Vending’s and the Company’s management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of BT Assets, Lux Vending and the Company. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political and legal conditions; the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the Business Combination, including the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the Business Combination or that the approval of the stockholders of the Company is not obtained; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Business Combination; risks relating to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to the combined company; future global, regional or local economic and market conditions; the development, effects and enforcement of laws and regulations; the combined company’s ability to manage future growth; the combined company’s ability to develop new products and services, bring them to market in a timely manner, and make enhancements to its business; the effects of competition on the combined company’s future business; the amount of redemption requests made by the Company’s public stockholders; the ability of the Company or the combined company to issue equity or equity-linked securities in connection with the Business Combination or in the future; the outcome of any potential litigation, government and regulatory proceedings, investigations and inquiries; and those factors described or referenced in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of the Company filed, or to be filed, from time to time with the SEC, including the definitive proxy statement. If any of these risks materialize or our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that none of BT Assets, Lux Vending or the Company presently knows or that BT Assets, Lux Vending and the Company currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect BT Assets’, Lux Vending’s and the Company’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date hereof. BT Assets, Lux Vending and the Company anticipate that

subsequent events and developments will cause BT Assets’, Lux Vending’s and the Company’s assessments to change. However, while BT Assets, Lux Vending and the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, BT Assets, Lux Vending and the Company specifically disclaim any obligation to do so except as otherwise required by applicable law. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing BT Assets’, Lux Vending’s and the Company’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date hereof. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.

This Current Report on Form 8-K is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell, nor a solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities in connection with the proposed Business Combination or otherwise, or the solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization in any jurisdiction pursuant to the Business Combination or otherwise, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction or otherwise in contravention of applicable law.
