F45 Training and Crescent Acquisition Corp Mutually Agree to Terminate Business Combination Agreement


Crescent Acquisition Corp (“CAC” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CRSA, CRSAU, CRSAW), a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company, together with F45 Training Holdings Inc. (“F45”), one of the fastest-growing fitness franchisors in the world, jointly announced today the termination of their previously announced business combination agreement. The termination is effective October 5, 2020.

“While we remain optimistic about the current performance and long-term growth prospects of F45, the prolonged uncertainty around the pandemic has challenged our ability to successfully complete the business combination,” Robert Beyer, Executive Chairman, and Todd Purdy, CEO, said jointly.

“Despite our best efforts to finalize this transaction, we ultimately concluded that approaching the public markets at this time was not the right option for F45,” said F45 CEO Adam Gilchrist. “That said, we are very pleased with our recent business performance, and have seen strong member re-engagement to almost pre-COVID levels. Our business remains resilient and strong and we look forward to continuing to serve and support our members and franchisees.”
