Item 8.01

Other Events.

In connection with the proposed business combination (the “Business Combination”) between Crescent Acquisition Corp (the “Company”) and F45 Training Holdings Inc. (“F45”), the Company and F45 held an analyst day on August 6, 2020 with select Wall Street firms to provide an overview of F45’s business and discuss historical and projected financial performance. Given the headlines around COVID-19 and its impact on regions around the world, F45 also provided an update on the health of both the current franchise network as well as the pipeline of future studio openings based on completed franchise sales.

Highlights from the update include:

Studio re-openings

 

   

As of August 3, 2020, 960 studios (78% of the pre-COVID-19 franchise network) are re-opened.

 

   

The median revenue for studios re-opened seven weeks is at 88% of pre-COVID-19 revenue levels.

Studio grand openings

 

   

Over 50 new studios have opened since the beginning of June.

New franchise sales

 

   

244 franchises were sold in the first seven months of 2020 (versus a full-year forecast of 174 franchises sold).

 

  o

This includes 124 franchises sold in the last two months.

The presentation used by the Company and F45 for the analyst day is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K (“Current Report”) and is incorporated herein by reference.
