Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On December 23, 2020 Owl Rock, Dyal and Altimar (each as defined under Item 8.01) held a joint investor conference call to discuss the transaction disclosed under Item 8.01. A copy of the transcript of the investor call is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 hereto and incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01. A copy of the presentation that Altimar, Owl Rock and Dyal prepared for use in connection with various meetings and conferences with investors is furnished as Exhibit 99.3 hereto and incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01.

The foregoing (including Exhibit 99.1) is being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 and will not be deemed to be filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise be subject to the liabilities of that section, nor will it be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On December 23, 2020, Altimar Acquisition Corporation (NYSE: ATAC) (“Altimar”) announced that it had entered into a definitive business combination agreement with Owl Rock Capital Group (“Owl Rock”) and the Dyal Capital Partners (“Dyal”) division of Neuberger Berman Group LLC to form Blue Owl Capital Inc. (“Blue Owl”), a publicly-traded alternative asset management firm with over $45.0 billion in assets under management. A copy of the press release announcing the transaction is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.

Pursuant to the transaction, Altimar, which currently holds $275 million in cash in trust, will combine with Blue Owl at an estimated $12.5 billion pro forma equity value. Cash proceeds in connection with the transaction will be funded through a combination of Altimar’s cash in trust and a $1.5 billion fully committed, oversubscribed, common stock private investment in public equity at $10.00 per share.

The information in this Item 8.01 and Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

Altimar intends to file a registration statement on Form S-4 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which will include a proxy statement and a prospectus of Altimar, and each party will file other documents with the SEC regarding the proposed transaction. A definitive proxy statement/prospectus will also be sent to the stockholders of Altimar, seeking any required stockholder approval. Before making any voting or investment decision, investors and security holders of Altimar are urged to carefully read the entire registration statement and proxy statement/prospectus, when they become available, and any other relevant documents filed with the SEC, as well as any amendments or supplements to these documents, because they will contain important information about the proposed transaction. The documents filed by Altimar with the SEC may be obtained free of charge at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. In addition, the documents filed by Altimar may be obtained free of charge from Altimar at www.altimarspac.com. Alternatively, these documents, when available, can be obtained free of charge from Altimar upon written request to Altimar Acquisition Corp., 40 West 57th Street, New York, New York 10019, Attn: Secretary, or by calling 212-287-6767.

Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K, and oral statements made from time to time by representatives of the Company are “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Statements regarding the proposed business combination and expectations regarding the combined business are “forward looking statements.” In addition, words such as “estimates,” “projects,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “forecasts,” “plans,” “intends,” “believes,” “seeks,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “future,” “propose,” “target,” “goal,” “objective,” “outlook” and variations of these


words or similar expressions (or the negative versions of such words or expressions) are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, conditions or results, and involve a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors, many of which are outside Altimar’s control, that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Important factors, among others, that may affect actual results or outcomes include: the inability of Altimar to complete the contemplated transactions with Owl Rock and Dyal; the risk that the approval of the stockholders of Altimar for the proposed business combination is not obtained; the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed business combination, which may be affected by, among other things, the amount of funds available in Altimar’s trust account following any redemptions by Altimar’s stockholders; the ability to meet the NYSE’s listing standards following the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the proposed business combination; costs related to the proposed business combination; and those factors discussed in Altimar’s prospectus, dated October 22, 2020 under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of Altimar filed, or to be filed, with the SEC. Altimar does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Participants in the Solicitation

Altimar and certain of its respective directors and executive officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the stockholders of Altimar, in favor of the approval of the business combination. Additional information regarding the interests of those participants and other persons who may be deemed participants in the transaction may be obtained by reading the registration statement and the proxy statement/prospectus and other relevant documents filed with the SEC when they become available. Free copies of these documents may be obtained as described in the preceding paragraph.

Non-Solicitation

The disclosure herein is not a proxy statement or solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any securities or in respect of the potential transaction and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities of Altimar, nor shall there be any sale of any such securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction. No offer of securities shall be made except by means of a definitive document.
