FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (Quarterly Report) contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities law. These forward-looking statements give E2open Parent Holdings, Inc.'s (we, our, us, Company or E2open) current expectations and include projections of results of operations or financial condition or forecasts of future events. Words such as "may," "can," "should," "will," "estimate," "plan," "project," "forecast," "intend," "expect," "anticipate," "believe," "seek," "target" and similar expressions are used to identify forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the forgoing, forward-looking statements contained in this document include our expectations regarding our future growth, operational and financial performance and business prospects and opportunities.

These forward-looking statements are based on information available as of the date of this Quarterly Report and management's current expectations, forecasts and assumptions, and involve a number of judgments, known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside our control and our directors, officers and affiliates. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing our views as of any subsequent date. We do not undertake any obligation to update, add or to otherwise correct any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, whether as a result of new information, future events, inaccuracies that become apparent after the date hereof or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.

As a result of a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, our results or performance may be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Some factors that could cause actual results to differ include:

the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against us or others following the completion of the BluJay acquisition and any definitive agreements with respect thereto;
the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the BluJay acquisition, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitability, maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain its management and key employees;
costs related to the BluJay acquisition;
the integration of BluJay and E2open may be more difficult, time-consuming or expensive than anticipated;
the inability to develop and maintain effective internal controls;
the COVID-19 pandemic;
the inability to attract new customers or upsell/cross sell existing customers or the failure to renew existing customer subscriptions on term favorable to us;
failure to renew existing customer subscriptions on terms favorable to us;
risks associated with our extensive and expanding international operations;
the inability to develop and market new and enhanced solutions;
the failure of the market for cloud-based SCM solutions to develop as quickly as we expect or failure to compete successfully in a fragmented and competitive SCM market;
inaccuracies in information sourced for our knowledge databases;
the inability to adequately protect key intellectual property rights or proprietary technology;
the diversion of management's attention and consumption of resources as a result of potential acquisitions of other companies;
risks associated with our past and prospective acquisitions (including the BluJay acquisition), including the failure to successfully integrate operations, personnel, systems, technologies and products of the acquired companies, adverse tax consequences of acquisitions, greater than expected liabilities of the acquired companies and charges to earnings from acquisitions;
failure to maintain adequate operational and financial resources or raise additional capital or generate sufficient cash flows;
cyber-attacks and security vulnerabilities; and
certain other factors discussed elsewhere in this Quarterly Report.

For a further discussion of these and other factors that could impact our future results and performance, see Part I, Item 1A., Risk Factorsin our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2021, filed with the SEC on May 20, 2021 (2021 Form 10-K).

E2open Parent Holdings, Inc.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

Organization and Description of Business

CC Neuberger Principal Holdings I (CCNB1) was a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands on January 14, 2020 for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. CCNB1's sponsor was CC Neuberger Principal Holdings I Sponsor LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (Sponsor). CCNB1 became a public company on April 28, 2020 through an initial public offering (IPO).

On February 4, 2021 (Closing Date), CCNB1 and E2open Holdings, LLC and its operating subsidiaries (E2open Holdings) completed a business combination (Business Combination) contemplated by the definitive Business Combination Agreement entered into on October 14, 2020 (Business Combination Agreement). In connection with the finalization of the Business Combination, CCNB1 changed its name to "E2open Parent Holdings, Inc." and changed its jurisdiction of incorporation from the Cayman Islands to the State of Delaware (Domestication).

Immediately following the Domestication, various entities merged with and into E2open, with E2open as the surviving company. Additionally, E2open Holdings became a subsidiary of E2open with the equity interests of E2open Holdings held by E2open and existing owners of E2open Holdings. The existing owners of E2open Holdings are considered noncontrolling interests in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

We are headquartered in Austin, Texas. We are a leading provider of cloud-based, end-to-end supply chain management software. Our software combines networks, data and applications to provide a deeply embedded, mission-critical platform that allows customers to optimize their supply chain by accelerating growth, reducing costs, increasing visibility and driving improved resiliency. Given the business-critical nature of our solutions, we maintain deep, long-term relationships with our customers across a wide range of end-markets, including technology, consumer, industrial and transportation, among others.

Basis of Presentation

As a result of the Business Combination, for accounting purposes, the Company is the acquirer and E2open Holdings is the acquiree and accounting predecessor. The financial statement presentation includes the financial statements of E2open Holdings as "Predecessor" for periods prior to the Closing Date and of the Company as "Successor" for the periods after the Closing Date, including the consolidation of E2open Holdings.

These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended August 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending February 28, 2022. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2021 Form 10-K.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Reclassifications

Financing lease obligation were previously included in current portion of notes payable and capital lease obligations as well as notes payable and capital lease obligations on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Beginning March 1, 2021, capital lease obligations became financing lease obligations and were presented separately on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Additionally, financing leases are no longer presented with notes payable in the notes to the financial statements as all leases are presented together in one note. These reclassifications and changes did not affect our net income, total assets, liabilities, equity or cash flows.

10

Seasonality

Our quarterly operating results have fluctuated in the past and are expected to fluctuate in the future due to a variety of factors, many of which are outside of our control, including seasonality in our business as a result of customer budget cycles and customary European vacation schedules, with higher sales in the third and fourth fiscal quarters. As a result, our past results may not be indicative of our future performance and comparing our operating results on a period-to-period basis may not be meaningful.

2. Accounting Standards

Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The core principle of ASC 842, Leasesis that a lessee should recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from leases. For operating leases, a lessee is required to recognize a right-of-use (ROU) asset and a lease liability, initially measured at the present value of the lease payments, in the balance sheet. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. The accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under previous U.S. GAAP. This standard is effective for calendar fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. Earlier application is permitted. In transition, lessees and lessors are required to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. We adoptedthis standard as of March 1, 2021utilizing the modified retrospective approach and elected a set of practical expedients that allowed us not to reassess whether contracts are or contain leases, lease classification or initial direct costs for existing leases. See Note 20, Leasesfor more information related to our leases.

In October 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-17, Consolidated (Topic 810): Targeted Improvements to Related Party Guidance for Variable Interest Entities. This standard is intended to improve the accounting when considering indirect interests held through related parties under common control for determining whether fees paid to decision makers and service providers are variable interests. ASU 2018-17 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within those years. All entities are required to apply this standard retrospectively with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings at the beginning of the earliest period presented. We adopted this standard as of March 1, 2021and it did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Recent Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (ASC 326), which is intended to provide financial statement users with more useful information about expected credit losses on financial assets held by a reporting entity at each reporting date. This standard replaces the existing incurred loss impairment methodology with an approach that requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable forward-looking information to estimate all expected credit losses. This standard is effective for the fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2022, and all interim periods within. Early adoption is permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. This standard provides guidance on accounting for costs of implementation activities performed in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. ASU 2018-15 aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software and hosting arrangements that include an internal-use software license. The amendments in this standard should be applied either retrospectively or prospectively to all implementation costs incurred after the adoption date. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within those years. Earlier application is permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Simplifying Accounting for Income Taxes,as part of its initiative to reduce complexity in the accounting standards. The guidance amends certain disclosure requirements that had become redundant, outdated or superseded. Additionally, this guidance amends accounting for the interim period effects of changes in tax laws or rates and simplifies aspects of the accounting for franchise taxes. ASU 2019-12 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. Early adoption is permitted. Management is currently evaluating the effect of these provisions on our financial position and results of operations.

11

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reportingto simplify the accounting for contract modifications made to replace LIBOR or other reference rates that are expected to be discontinued because of the reference rate reform. The guidance provides optional expediates and exceptions for applying U.S. GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criterion are met. The optional expedients and exceptions can be applied to contract modifications made until December 31, 2022. In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848), which clarifies that certain optional expedients and exceptions in Topic 848 for contract modifications and hedge accounting apply to derivatives that are affected by the discounting transition. The amendments in ASU 2021-01 are elective and apply to our debt instruments that may be modified as a result of the reference rate reform. We are continuing to evaluate these standards, as well as the timing of the transition of various rates in our debt instruments affected by reference rate reform.

3. BluJay Acquisition

On May 27, 2021, we entered into a Purchase Agreement with the BluJay Sellers. On September 1, 2021, we completed the acquisition of BluJay (BluJay Acquisition). Under the Purchase Agreement, we issued to the BluJay Sellers 72,383,299shares of Class A Common Stock and paid approximately $770million of cash which includes the repayment of BluJay's debt facility. The total purchase consideration for the BluJay Acquisition was $1.6billion.

In connection with the completion of the BluJay Acquisition, we secured $300million in PIPE financing from institutional investors for the purchase of an aggregate of 28,909,022shares of our Class A Common Stock. PIPE financing proceeds of $280million were received in advance of BluJay Acquisition and were recorded as a payable to sellers on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of August 31, 2021. We also obtained a $380.0million incremental term loan to our 2021 Term Loan, as defined below, and an $80.0million increase to our 2021 Revolving Credit Facility, defined below. In addition, the letter of credit sublimit was increased from $15.0million to $30.0million upon completion of the BluJay Acquisition.

Additionally, the Investor Rights Agreement was amended and restated to add certain of BluJay's existing stockholders as parties, including certain affiliates of Francisco Partners and Temasek as well as include a six monthlock-up period from September 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022 for certain equityholders of E2open and BluJay. The Investor Rights Agreement also provides Francisco Partners and Temasek the right to nominate one member each to our board of directors. Mr. Deep Shah and Mr. Martin Fichtner became new directors on September 1, 2021.

The BluJay Acquisition will be presented in our financial statements and results of operations during our fiscal third quarter of 2022.

4. Liquidity and Capital Resources

We measure liquidity in terms of our ability to fund the cash requirements of our business operations, including working capital, capital expenditure needs, contractual obligations and other commitments, with cash flows from operations and other sources of funding. Current working capital needs relate mainly to employee compensation and benefits, as well as interest, debt repayments, capital expenditures and operating expenses. Our ability to expand and grow our business will depend on many factors, including working capital needs and the evolution of operating cash flows.

We had $473.1million in cash and cash equivalents as of August 31, 2021, including $280.0million of PIPE financing proceeds for the BluJay Acquisition. We believe our existing cash and cash equivalents, cash provided by operating activities, and, if necessary, the borrowing capacity of up to $75.0million available under our 2021 Revolving Credit Facility (see Note 9, Notes Payable) will be sufficient to meet our working capital, debt repayment and capital expenditure requirements for at least the next twelve months. See Note 3, BluJay Acquisitionfor the additional equity and debt financing we incurred to purchase BluJay, which included increasing the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility by $80.0million to a total of $155.0million on September 1, 2021.

In the future, we may enter into arrangements to acquire or invest in complementary businesses. To facilitate these acquisitions or investments, we may seek additional equity or debt financing.

8. Tax Receivable Agreement

E2open Holdings entered into a Tax Receivable Agreement with selling equity holders of E2open Holdings that requires us to pay 85% of the tax savings that are realized as a result of increases in the tax basis in E2open Holdings' assets as a result of the sale of E2open Holdings units and exchange of the E2open Holdings units for shares of Class A Common Stock and cash, as well as certain other tax benefits related to entering into the Tax Receivable Agreement, including tax benefits attributable to payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement. We will retain the benefit of the remaining 15% of these cash savings.

Significant inputs and assumptions were used to initially estimate the future expected payments including the timing of the realization of the tax benefits, a tax rate of 24.1% and an imputed interest rate of 7%. Changes in any of these or other factors are expected to impact the timing and amount of gross payments. The fair value of these obligations will be accreted to the amount of the gross expected obligation. In addition, if we were to exercise our right to terminate the Tax Receivable Agreement or certain other acceleration events occur, we will be required to make immediate cash payments. Such cash payments will be equal to the present value of the assumed future realized tax benefits based on a set of assumptions and using an agreed upon discount rate, as defined in the Tax Receivable Agreement. The early termination payment may be made significantly in advance of the actual realization, if any, of those future tax benefits. Such payments will be calculated based on certain assumptions, including that we have sufficient taxable income to utilize the full amount of any tax benefits subject to the Tax Receivable Agreement over the period specified therein. The payments that we will be required to make will generally reduce the amount of the overall cash flow that might have otherwise been available, but we expect the cash tax savings we will realize from the utilization of the related tax benefits will exceed the amount of any required payments.

Pursuant to ASC 805, Business Combinationand relevant tax law, we have calculated the fair value of the tax receivable agreement payments related to the transaction at the acquisition date and identified the timing of the utilization of the tax attributes. Under ASC 805, the Tax Receivable Agreement liability, as of the acquisition date, will be revalued at the end of each reporting period with the gain or loss as well as the associated interest reflected in the change in tax receivable agreement liability in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in the period in which the event occurred. Interest will accrue on the tax receivable agreement liability at a rate of LIBOR plus 100basis points. In addition, under ASC 450, Contingenciestransactions with partnership unit holders after the acquisition date will result in additional Tax Receivable Agreement liabilities that are recorded on a gross undiscounted basis. The Tax Receivable Agreement liability was$63.3million and $50.1million as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. The increase in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability was due to an increase in the ASC 805 discounted liability of $3.1million and increase in the ASC 450 liability of $10.1million.

2021 Term Loan and Revolving Credit Facility

On February 4, 2021, E2open, LLC, our subsidiary, entered into a credit agreement (Credit Agreement) that provides for $75.0million in commitments for revolving credit loans (2021 Revolving Credit Facility) with a $15.0million letter of credit sublimit. The 2021 Revolving Credit Facility will mature on February 4, 2026. E2open, LLC can request increases in the revolving commitments and additional term loan facilities, in minimum amounts of $2.0million for each facility. The Credit Agreement also provides for $525.0million in term loans (2021 Term Loan) payable in quarterlyinstallments of $1.3million beginning in August 2021 and payable in full on February 4, 2028.

The Credit Agreement is guaranteed by E2open Intermediate, LLC, our subsidiary, and certain wholly owned subsidiaries of E2open, LLC, as guarantors, and is supported by a security interest in substantially all of the guarantors' personal property and assets.

The Credit Agreement contains certain customary events of default, representations and warranties as well as affirmative and negative covenants.

As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, the 2021 Term Loan had a variable interest rate of 3.75% and 3.69%, respectively, and nooutstanding borrowings under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility. We were in compliance with the First Lien Leverage Ratio for the Credit Agreement as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021.

See Note 3, BluJay Acquisitionfor information related to additional debt incurred for the BluJay Acquisition. See Note 23, Subsequent Eventsfor information related to borrowings under our 2021 Revolving Credit Facility.

10. Contingent Consideration

Business Combination

The contingent consideration liability is due to the issuance of Series B-1 and B-2 common stock and Series 1 restricted common units (RCUs) and Series 2 RCUs of E2open Holdings as part of the Business Combination. These shares and units were issued on a proportional basis to each holder of Class A shares in CCNB1 and Common Units of E2open Holdings. These restricted shares and Common Units are treated as a contingent consideration liability under ASC 805 and valued at fair market value. The contingent consideration liability was recorded at fair value on the acquisition date and will be remeasured at each reporting date and adjusted if necessary. Any gain or loss recognized from the remeasurement will be recorded in gain (loss) from the change in fair value of contingent consideration on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as a nonoperating income (expense) as the change in fair value is not part of our core operating activities.

The contingent consideration liability was $65.8million and $129.4million as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. The fair value remeasurements resulted in a loss of $13.0million and $76.4million for the three and six months ended August 31, 2021, respectively. There was nogain or loss for the three and six months ended August 31, 2020 as the contingent consideration liability was not recorded until February 4, 2021.

The 8,120,367shares of Series B-1 common stock, including the Sponsor Side Letter shares noted below, automatically convert into our Class A Common Stock on a one-to-one basis upon the occurrence of the first day on which the 5-day VWAP of our Class A Common Stock is equal to at least $13.50per share; provided, however, that the reference to $13.50per share shall be decreased by the aggregate per share amount of dividends actually paid in respect of a share of Class A Common Stock following the closing of the Business Combination.

15

As of June 8, 2021, the 5-day VWAP of our Class A Common Stock exceeded $13.50per share which was the triggering event for the Series B-1 common stock to automatically convert into our Class A Common Stock on a one-to-one basis. As such, 8,120,273shares of Series B-1 common stock converted into 8,120,273shares of Class A Common Stock. There were 94shares of Series B-1 common stock pending conversion as of August 31, 2021.

There were 3,372,184shares of Series B-2 common stock outstanding as of August 31, 2021. The Series B-2 common stock automatically convert into our Class A Common Stock on a one-to-one basisupon the occurrence of the first day on which the 20-day VWAP is equal to at least $15.00per share; provided, however, that the reference to $15.00per share shall be decreased by the aggregate per share amount of dividends actually paid in respect of a share of Class A Common Stock following the closing of the Business Combination.

The 4,379,557shares of Series 1 RCUs vest and become Common Units of E2open Holdings at such time as the 5-day VWAP of the Class A Common Stock is at least $13.50per share; however, the $13.50per share threshold will be decreased by the aggregate amount of dividends per share paid following the closing of the Business Combination.

As of June 8, 2021, the 5-day VWAP of our Class A Common Stock exceeded $13.50per share which was the triggering event for the Series 1 RCUs to vest and become Common Units of E2open Holdings. As such, 4,379,557Series 1 RCUs became 4,379,557Common Units of E2open Holdings along with entitling the holders of the newly vested common units to 4,379,557shares of Class V Common Stock. Catch-Up Payments were not required as a result of the Series 1 RCU vesting.

There were 2,627,724shares of Series 2 RCUs outstanding as of August 31, 2021. The Series 2 RCUs will vest (a) at such time as the 20-day VWAP of the Class A Common Stock is at least $15.00per share; however, the $15.00per share threshold will be decreased by the aggregate amount of dividends per share paid following the closing of the Business Combination; (b) upon the consummation of a qualifying change of control of us or the Sponsor and (c) upon the qualifying liquidation defined in the limited liability company agreement.

Upon the conversion of an RCU, the holder of such RCU will be entitled to receive a payment equal to the amount of ordinary distributions paid on an E2open Holdings unit from the Closing Date through (but not including) the date such RCU converts into an E2open Holdings unit. If any of the RCUs do not vest on or before the 10-yearanniversary of the Closing Date, such units will be canceled for no consideration, and will not be entitled to receive any Catch-Up Payments.

We have not paid any dividends to date and do not expect to in the future.

Sponsor Side Letter

In connection with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, the Sponsor, certain investors and CCNB1's Independent Directors entered into the Sponsor Side Letter Agreement with CCNB1. Under the Sponsor Side Letter Agreement, 2,500,000Class B ordinary shares of CCNB1 held by the Sponsor and CCNB1's Independent Directors automatically converted into 2,500,000shares of Series B-1 Common Stock, which, collectively, are referred to as the Restricted Sponsor Shares. The vesting conditions of the shares of Series B-1 Common Stock mirrored the Series 1 RCUs.

These restricted shares were treated as a contingent consideration liability under ASC 805 and valued at fair market value. The contingent consideration liability was recorded at fair value on the acquisition date and remeasured at each reporting date and adjusted if necessary. Any gain or loss recognized from the remeasurements was recorded in gain (loss) from the change in fair value of contingent consideration on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as a nonoperating income (expense) as the change in fair value was not part of our core operating activities.

As of June 8, 2021, the 5-day VWAP of our Class A Common Stock exceeded $13.50per share which was the triggering event for the Sponsor Side Letters shares to automatically convert into our Class A Common Stock on a one-to-one basis. As such, all of the Sponsor Side Letter shares converted into our Class A Common Stock and are included in the 8,120,273Class A Common Stock discussed above.

The contingent consideration liability was $21.4million as of February 28, 2021. The fair value remeasurements through June 8, 2021 resulted in a loss of $3.8million and $13.7million for the three and six months ended August 31, 2021. There was nogain or loss for the three and six months ended August 31, 2020 as the Sponsor Side Letter was not entered into until February 4, 2021.

Averetek

E2open Holdings purchased Averetek, LLC (Averetek) in May 2019. The purchase agreement for Averetek included contingent payments of up to $2.0million in consideration contingent upon successful attainment of revenue related criteria that extended up to two years subsequent to closing. The earn-out liability was recorded on the acquisition date in acquisition-related obligations on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and remeasured at each reporting date and adjusted if necessary. At the acquisition date, the fair value of the contingent consideration was $2.0million. We determined there was no change in fair value of the contingent consideration as of February 28, 2021or prior to payment. The earn-out liability was earned in May 2021 and paid in July 2021.

11. Fair Value Measurement

Our financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents; investments; accounts receivable, net; accounts payable; acquisition-related obligations; notes payable; and financing lease obligations. Accounts receivable, net; accounts payable; and acquisition-related obligations are stated at their carrying value, which approximates fair value, due to their short maturity. We measure our cash equivalents and investments at fair value, based on an exchange or exit price which represents the amount that would be received for an asset sale or an exit price, or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between knowledgeable and willing market participants. We estimate the fair value for notes payable and financing lease obligations by discounting the future cash flows of the related note and lease payments. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, the fair value of the cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, notes payable and financing lease obligations approximates their recorded values.

Observable inputs are based on market data obtained from independent sources. Unobservable inputs reflect our assessment of the assumptions market participants would use to value certain financial instruments. This hierarchy requires us to use observable market data, when available, and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value.

Our assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis, by level, within the fair value hierarchy are summarized as follows:

The change in the fair value of the warrant liability is recorded in gain (loss) from change in fair value of warrant liability in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The fair values of our Level 1 financial instruments, which are traded in active markets, are based on quoted market prices for identical instruments. The fair values of our Level 2 financial instruments are based on quoted market prices for comparable instruments or model-driven valuations using observable market data or inputs corroborated by observable market data.

Our earn-out liabilities and contingent consideration are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model. The assumptions used in preparing these models include estimates such as volatility, contractual terms, discount rates, dividend yield and risk-free interest rates. These valuation models use unobservable market input, and therefore the liabilities are classified as Level 3.

18

Our public warrant liability is valued using the binomial lattice pricing model. The private placement warrants are valued using a binomial pricing model when the warrants are subject to the make-whole table, or otherwise are valued using a Black-Scholes pricing model. The forward purchase warrants are valued utilizing observable market prices for public shares and warrants, relative to the present value of contractual cash proceeds. The assumptions used in preparing these models include estimates such as volatility, contractual terms, discount rates, dividend yield, expiration dates and risk-free interest rates. These valuation models use unobservable market input, and therefore the liability is classified as Level 3.

12. Revenue

We generate revenue from the sale of subscriptions and professional services. We recognize revenue when the customer contract and associated performance obligations have been identified, transaction price has been determined and allocated to the performance obligations in the contract, and performance obligations have been satisfied. We recognize revenue net of any taxes collected from customers, which are subsequently remitted to governmental authorities.

Revenues by geography are determined based on the region of our contracting entity, which may be different than the region of the customer. Americas revenue attributed to the United States was 96% and 95% during the three months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Americas revenue attributed to the United States was 96% during the six months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020. No other country represented more than 10% of total revenue during these periods.

During the three and six months ended August 31, 2021, we recorded a $14.2million and $36.7million reduction to revenue to amortize the deferred revenue fair value adjustment that resulted from the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination, respectively.

Remaining Performance Obligations

Revenue allocated to remaining performance obligations represents the transaction price allocated to the performance obligations that are unsatisfied, or partially unsatisfied. It includes unearned revenue and amounts that will be invoiced and recognized as revenue in future periods and does not include contracts where the customer is not committed. The customer is not considered committed when they are able to terminate for convenience without payment of a substantive penalty under the contract. Additionally, as a practical expedient of ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customerswe have not disclosed the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for contracts with an original expected length of one year or less. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, approximately $586.5million and $555.7million of revenue was expected to be recognized from remaining performance obligations, respectively. These amounts are expected to be recognized over the next five years.

Contract Assets and Liabilities

Contract assets primarily represent contractual receivables recognized for performance obligations that have been satisfied but for which amounts have not been billed. Contract assets were $12.4million and $13.4million as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. Contract liabilities consist of deferred revenue which includes billings in excess of revenue recognized related to subscription contracts and professional services. Deferred revenue is recognized as revenue when we perform under the contract. Deferred revenue was $110.3million and $90.2million as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. As of February 4, 2021, a fair value adjustment of $60.7million was recorded to reduce our deferred revenue to its fair value as part of the Business Combination. As deferred revenue is recognized, any fair value adjustment related to the deferred revenue is also recognized as a reduction to revenue. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, the fair value adjustment to reduce deferred revenue as part of the Business Combination was $17.3million and $54.0million, respectively. Revenue recognized during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021, included in deferred revenue on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of February 28, 2021, was $21.1million and $47.4million, respectively.

Sales Commissions

With the adoption of ASC 606 and ASC 340-40, Contracts with Customersas of March 1, 2019, we began deferring and amortizing sales commissions that are incremental and directly related to obtaining customer contracts. Amortization expense of $0.2million and $1.0million was recorded in sales and marketing expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Amortization expense of $0.4million and $2.0million was recorded in sales and marketing expense for the six months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Certain sales commissions that would have an amortization period of less than a year are expensed as incurred in sales and marketing expense. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, we had a total of $5.3million and $1.6million of capitalized sales commissions included in prepaid expenses and other current assets and other noncurrent assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, respectively.

13. Severance and Exit Costs

In connection with acquisitions, we conducted post-acquisition related operational reviews to reallocate resources to strategic areas of the business. The operational reviews resulted in workforce reductions, lease obligations related to properties that were vacated and other expenses. Severance and exit costs included in acquisition-related expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations were as follows:

14. Warrants

As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, there were an aggregate of 29,079,972warrants outstanding, which include the public warrants, private placement warrants and Forward Purchase Warrants. Each warrant entitles its holders to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50per share. The private placement warrants became exercisable with the Domestication. The Forward Purchase Warrants became exercisable upon effectiveness of our Form S-1 which was initially filed on March 5, 2021 and deemed effective on March 29, 2021. The public warrants became exercisable on April 28, 2021. The public warrants, private placement warrants and Forward Purchase Warrants will expire five yearsafter the Closing Date, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. Once the warrants become exercisable, we may redeem the outstanding warrants when various conditions are met, such as specific stock prices, as detailed in the specific warrant agreements. However, the 10,280,000private placement warrants are nonredeemable so long as they are held by our Sponsor or its permitted transferees. The warrants are recorded as a liability in warrant liability on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets with a balance of $110.0million and $68.8million as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. During the three and six months ended August 31, 2021, a gain of $18.7million and a loss of $41.2million was recognized in gain (loss) from change in fair value of the warrant liability in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, respectively. No warrants have been exercised or redeemed to date.

On July 6, 2021, pursuant to Section 3.5 of the Business Combination Agreement, we issued additional Class A Common Stock and Common Units valued at $3.0million to each E2open Holdings member as part of the post-closing adjustment of consideration required as part of the merger transaction.
(4)
Class A Common Stock issued for the conversion of Common Units settled in stock. During the six months ended August 31, 2021, we paid $16.8million in cash for the repurchase of 1,615,326Common Units that were converted into cash instead of stock at our option. Class V Common Stock is retired when Common Units are converted into Class A Common Stock or settled in cash. As a result of Common Unit conversions prior to August 19, 2021, 6,701Class V Common Stock related to Common Unit conversions to Class A Common Stock were not issued and subsequently retired due to the limitation of authorized shares.
(5)
On July 13, 2021, our board of directors waived the Lock-up Period solely in respect of withholding shares to cover taxes upon the issuance of Class A Common Stock to the executive officers upon the conversion of the Series B-1 and Series B-2 common stock. The shares were repurchased at an average price of $14.00per share, or $2.5million, to cover withholding taxes associated with the Series B-1 conversion to Class A Common Stock. See Note 10, Contingent Considerationfor additional details on the conversions.

See Note 3, BluJay Acquisitionfor information regarding additional Class A Common Stock issuances and the lock-up period.

Membership Units

Prior to the Business Combination, E2open Holdings had three classes of units: Class A, Class A-1 and Class B. Class A units were the only units with voting rights. Holders of Class A and Class A-1 units were entitled to priority distributions until each unit received $1.00per unit. Remaining distributions, if any, were made pro rata to all units. Class B units were incentive, profit-interest units issued to management, which participated as long as E2open Holdings made distributions to any Class A units equal to the participation level of the applicable Class B units.

During the six months ended August 31, 2020, we received $1.8million in proceeds from the sale of membership units.

16. Noncontrolling Interests

Noncontrolling interest represents the portion of E2open Holdings that we control and consolidate but do not own. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, the noncontrolling interests represent a 15.8% and 16.0% ownership in E2open Holdings, respectively.

21

Generally, common units of E2open Holdings participate in net income or loss allocations and distributions and entitle their holder to the right, subject to the terms set forth in the limited liability agreement, to require E2open Holdings to redeem all or a portion of the common units held by such participant. At our option, we may satisfy this redemption with cash or by exchanging Class V Common Stock for our Class A Common Stock on a one-for-onebasis.

On June 8, 2021, the 4,379,557Series 1 RCUs vested and became Common Units along with entitling the holders of the newly vested common units to 4,379,557shares of Class V Common Stock.

On July 6, 2021, pursuant to Section 3.5 of the Business Combination Agreement, we issued 103,929additional Common Units to each E2open Holdings member in a pro rata amount reflecting the number of Common Units they received at the closing of the Business Combination as part of the post-closing adjustment as consideration required as part of the merger transaction.

As part of the Business Combination, certain individuals were party to the Lock-Up Period which expired on August 4, 2021. As a result, 2,623,409Common Units were converted into Class A Common Stock with a value of $27.2million based off the 5-day VWAP and 1,615,326Common Units were settled with the payment of $16.8million of cash during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021. This activity resulted in a decrease to noncontrolling interests of $44.0million during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021.

See Note 23, Subsequent Eventsfor information on additional Common Unit conversions.

As part of the BluJay Acquisition, certain individuals who are parties to the Investor Rights Agreements entered into a new lock-up period that will expire on February 28, 2022.

As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, there were a total of 35.9million and 35.6million Common Units held by participants of E2open Holdings, respectively.

We follow the guidance issued by the FASB regarding the classification and measurement of redeemable securities. Accordingly, we have determined that the common units meet the requirements to be classified as permanent equity.

17. Other Comprehensive (Loss) Income

We did not reclass any items to the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations from accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020.

19. Share-Based and Unit-Based Compensation

2021 Incentive Plan

The E2open Parent Holdings, Inc. 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan (2021 Incentive Plan) became effective on the Closing Date with the approval of CCNB1's shareholders and the board of directors. The 2021 Incentive Plan allows us to make equity and equity-based incentive awards to officers, employees, directors and consultants. There are 15,000,000shares of Class A Common Stock reserved for issuance under the 2021 Incentive Plan which can be granted as stock options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, performance stock awards, cash awards and other equity-based awards. No award may vest earlier than the first anniversary of the date of grant, expect under limited conditions. The 2021 Incentive Plan replaced the 2015 Plan and 2015 Restricted Plan, as defined below.

Our board of directors have approved the grant of options and RSUs under the 2021 Incentive Plan.

Currently, all options are performance based and are measured based on obtaining an organic growth target over a one-yearperiod with a quarter of the options vesting at the end of the performance period and the remaining options vesting equally over the following three years. Our executive officers and senior management have been granted these performance based options. Currently, we estimate that the performance target will be met at 100%. The probability of meeting the performance target is remeasured each quarter and adjusted if needed.

The RSUs are either performance based or time based. The performance based RSUs are measured based on obtaining an organic growth target over a one-yearperiod with a quarter of the options vesting at the end of the performance period and the remaining options vesting equally over the following three years. Currently, we estimate that the performance target will be met at 100%. The probability of meeting the performance target is remeasured each quarter and adjusted if needed. The time based RSUs for executive officers, senior management and employees vest ratably over a three-yearperiod while the time based RSUs for non-employee directors of our board of directors have a one-yearvesting period. As of August 31, 2021, there are 1,003,584unvested performance based RSUs and 1,054,765unvested time based RSUs.

As of August 31, 2021, there were 10,358,331shares of Class A Common Stock available for grant under the 2021 Incentive Plan.

See Note 23, Subsequent Eventsfor information related to additional RSU grants.

Prior to the Business Combination, we had unit-based compensation plans that authorized (a) the discretionary granting of unit options and (b) the discretionary issuance of non-vested restricted units.

Unit Options

In 2015, E2open Holdings adopted the 2015 Unit Option Plan (2015 Plan). Under the 2015 Plan, E2open Holdings issued Series A unit options to certain employees eligible to participate in E2open Holdings unit option plan. The options issued under the 2015 Plan were subject to certain transfer restrictions and were initially deemed unvested. With respect to options issued to certain employees, options either vested 25% in the first year, and quarterly thereafter over a four-yearperiod (Time-Based Units) or based upon an exit event (Exit-Based Units). The vesting of both the Time-Based Units and Exit-Based Units were subject to the employee's continued employment with the E2open Holdings.

Fair value of the unit options was determined on the date of grant using a pricing model affected by E2open Holdings' unit price, as well as by certain assumptions including E2open Holdings' expected equity price volatility over the term of the awards, actual and projected employee option exercise behavior, risk-free interest rates and expected dividends. E2open Holdings did not grant any new options during the periods from March 1, 2020 through February 3, 2021.

E2open Holdings was authorized to issue 46.0million unit options under the 2015 Plan. As of February 3, 2021, outstanding unit options were 19.9million. Unit options available for grant were 2.7million as of February 3, 2021; however, the 2015 Plan was terminated as part of the Business Combination.

The weighted-average contractual life of options outstanding was 6.7years and the weighted-average contractual life of options exercisable was 6.4years as of February 3, 2021.

We did not recognize any compensation expense for Exit-Based units for the three and six months ended August 31, 2020 as these awards were not probable of vesting during these time periods.

On January 24, 2021, the board of managers accelerated the vesting of all unvested unit options outstanding under the 2015 Plan as of the completion of the Business Combination on February 4, 2021.

25

Restricted Equity Plan

In 2015, E2open Holdings established the 2015 Restricted Equity Plan (2015 Restricted Plan) that was adopted for certain officers eligible to participate in the 2015 Restricted Plan. The units issued under the 2015 Restricted Plan were subject to certain transfer restrictions and were initially deemed unvested. With respect to units issued to certain officers, Class B units either vested 25% annually over a four-yearperiod (Time-Based Units) or based upon an exit event (Exit-Based Units). The vesting of both the Time-Based Units and Exit-Based Units were subject to the employee's continued employment with E2open Holdings. E2open Holdings authorized 32.0million units under the 2015 Restricted Plan. As of February 3, 2021 and February 29, 2020, outstanding restricted units were 22.0million. Norestricted units were available for grant as of February 3, 2021. The 2015 Restricted Plan was terminated as part of the Business Combination.

Unrecognized compensation expense related to the Class B units was $5.4million as of the February 3, 2021, which was expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of approximately one year. E2open Holdings did not recognize any compensation expense for Exit-Based Units for the three and six months ended August 31, 2020.

On January 24, 2021, the board of managers accelerated the vesting of all unvested unit options outstanding under the 2015 Restricted Plan as of the completion of the Business Combination on February 4, 2021.

20. Leases

Effective March 1, 2021, we began accounting for leases in accordance with ASC 842, Leases, which requires lessees to recognize lease liabilities and ROU assets on the balance sheet for most operating leases. Prior to March 1, 2021, we accounted for leases in accordance with ASC 840, Leases, under which operating leases were not recorded on the balance sheet.

We made the accounting policy election not to apply the recognition provisions of ASC 842 to short-term leases which are leases with a lease term of 12 months or less. Instead, we will recognize the lease payments for short-term leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. We currently do not have any short-term leases.

Upon adoption of ASC 842, we recognized an operating lease liability of $23.0million, a ROU operating asset of $22.4million and nochange to retained earnings. The lease liability is calculated based on the remaining minimum rental payments under current leasing standards for existing operating leases and the ROU asset is calculated the same as the lease liability, reduced for a $0.6million impairment related to an office lease we had exited as of February 28, 2021. We did not include any optional extension periods or cancelations in the valuation.

26

Operating lease liabilities reflect our obligation to make future lease payments for real estate locations. Lease terms are comprised of contractual terms. Payments are discounted using the rate we would pay to borrow amounts equal to the lease payments over the lease term (our incremental borrowing rate). We do not separate lease and non-lease components for contracts in which we are the lessee. ROU assets are measured based on lease liabilities adjusted for incentives and timing differences between operating lease expense and payments, recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term, while variable lease payments are recognized as incurred. Common area maintenance and other executory costs are the main components of variable lease payments. Operating and variable lease expenses are recorded in general and administrative expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Real Estate Leases

We lease our primary office space under non-cancelable operating leases with various expiration dates through August 2029. Many of our leases have an option to be extended from twoto five years, and several of our leases give us the right to cancel early with proper notification. Additionally, we have a sublease on one of our office leases.

Several of the operating lease agreements require us to provide security deposits. As of August 31, 2021, and February 28, 2021, lease deposits were $3.0million and $2.9million, respectively. The deposits are generally refundable at the expiration of the lease, assuming all obligations under the lease agreement have been met. Deposits are included in prepaid and other current assets and other noncurrent assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Equipment Leases

We purchase equipment under non-cancelable financing lease arrangements related to software and computer equipment and have various expiration dates through August 2024. We have the right to purchase the software and computer equipment anytime during the lease or upon lease completion.

21. Income Taxes

We calculate the provision for income taxes during interim periods by applying an estimate of the forecasted annual effective tax rate for the full fiscal year to "ordinary" income or loss (pretax income or loss or loss excluding unusual or infrequently occurring discrete items) for the reporting period. Our provision for income taxes was$6.0million for the three months ended August 31, 2021compared to $6.2million for the three months ended August 31, 2020. Our effective tax rate was 33.3% for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a decrease of 21.6%, compared to 54.9% for the three months ended August 31, 2020.Our provision for income taxes was$7.4million for the six months ended August 31, 2021compared to $14.4million for the six months ended August 31, 2020. Our effective tax rate was 4.0%for the six months ended August 31, 2021, a decrease of 49.5%, compared to 53.5% for the six months ended August 31, 2020.

The decrease in the provision for income taxes and effective tax rate was primarily due to significant nondeductible mark-to-market losses associated with contingent liabilities and certain equity consideration liabilities related to the Business Combination as well as the impact to fiscal 2022 of losses attributable to our noncontrolling interest in our affiliate.

As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, total gross unrecognized tax benefits were $2.7million. We recognize interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, the total amount of gross interest and penalties accrued was $0.3million which is classified as other noncurrent liabilities in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

22. Commitments and Contingencies

From time to time, we are subject to contingencies that arise in the ordinary course of business. We record an accrual for a contingency when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. We do not currently believe the resolution of any such contingencies will have a material adverse effect upon our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, Statements of Operations or Statements of Cash Flows.

23. Subsequent Events

On September 1, 2021, we completed the BluJay Acquisition. The BluJay Acquisition will be presented in our financial statements and results of operations during our fiscal third quarter of 2022. See Note 3, BluJay Acquisitionfor details.

On September 1, 2021, certain executives and senior management were granted an aggregate of 180,068RSUs with a grant date fair value of $11.94per share. All of these RSUs are service based which will vest ratably over a three-yearperiod.

On September 10, 2021, 958,539Common Units were converted into an equivalent number of Class A Common Stock.

On September 29, 2021, we borrowed $15.0million under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility.

On October 1, 2021, senior management and employees were granted an aggregate of 111,506RSUs with a grant date fair value of $11.30per share. All of these RSUs are service based which will vest ratably over a three-yearperiod.

On October 11, 2021, 194,379Common Units were converted into an equivalent number of Class A Common Stock.

Recent Events

On September 1, 2021, we completed the BluJay Acquisition with the issuance of 72,383,299 shares of Class A Common Stock to the BluJay Sellers and the payment of approximately $770 million of cash which includes the repayment of BluJay's debt facility. The total purchase consideration for the BluJay Acquisition was $1.6 billion.

In connection with the completion of the BluJay Acquisition, we secured $300 million in PIPE financing from institutional investors for the purchase of an aggregate of 28,909,022 shares of our Class A Common Stock. PIPE financing proceeds of $280 million were received in advance of the BluJay Acquisition and were recorded as a payable to sellers on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of August 31, 2021. We also obtained a $380.0 million incremental term loan to our 2021 Term Loan and increased our 2021 Revolving Credit Facility by $80.0 million to $155.0 million. In addition, the letter of credit sublimit was increased from $15.0 million to $30.0 million upon completion of the BluJay Acquisition.

Additionally, the Investor Rights Agreement was amended and restated to add certain of BluJay's existing stockholders as parties, including certain affiliates of Francisco Partners and Temasek as well as include a six month lock-up period from September 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022 for certain equityholders of E2open and BluJay. The Investor Rights Agreement also provides Francisco Partners and Temasek the right to nominate one member each to our board of directors. Mr. Deep Shah and Mr. Martin Fichtner became new directors on September 1, 2021.

Subscriptions revenue was $61.7 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a $7.3 million, or 11%, decrease compared to subscriptions revenue of $69.0 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020. The decrease in subscriptions revenue was primarily due to $14.2 million amortization of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue related to the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination, partially offset by new organic subscription sales predominantly driven by increases in products utilized across our current customer portfolio.

Professional services revenue was $16.4 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a $3.6 million, or 28%, increase compared to $12.8 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020. The increase was primarily related to new subscription sales in addition to customers delaying projects in fiscal year 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in favorable growth year over year.

Our subscriptions revenue as a percentage of total revenue decreased to 79% for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to 84% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 driven primarily by amortizing the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue related to the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination, in addition to the increase in professional services revenue.

Cost of subscriptions was $16.2 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a $1.4 million, or 9%, increase compared to $14.9 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020. The increase was attributable to our subscriptions revenue growth excluding amortization of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue and was related to an increase in personnel costs of 0.6 million and depreciation expense of $0.9 million related to capital expenditures for the expansion of our data centers.

Cost of professional services revenue was $11.0 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a $0.6 million, or 6%, increase compared to $10.4 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020. This increase was mainly related to a $0.9 million increase in personnel costs such as incentive compensation and salaries offset by $0.4 million savings from the reallocation of resources into major strategic product development efforts.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets was $12.3 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a $7.4 million increase compared to $4.9 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020, driven primarily by the revaluation and change in the composition of the intangible assets as part of the Business Combination in February 2021.

Our subscriptions gross margin was 54% in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to 71% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 mainly due to lower subscriptions revenue in the current period as a direct result of amortizing the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue related to the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination. Our professional services gross margin increased to 33% for second quarter of fiscal 2022 from 19% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 primarily due to new subscription sales in addition to customers delaying projects in fiscal year 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in favorable growth year over year.

Research and development expenses were $16.2 million for the three months ended August 31, 2021, a $1.9 million, or 13%, increase compared to $14.4 million in the prior year. The increase was due to major strategic partnership initiatives around product development efforts offset by the capitalization of software development costs during fiscal year 2022 which resulted in net increased personnel costs of $0.3 million and consulting expenses of $0.7 million. Additionally, there was an increase to share-based compensation expense of $0.2 million and depreciation expense of $0.5 million related to capital expenditures for software.

Change in Tax Receivable Agreement

During the three months ended August 31, 2021, we recorded a $0.6 million expense related to the change in the fair value of the tax receivable agreement liability, including interest. Pursuant to ASC 805, Business Combinationand relevant tax law, we calculated the fair value of the tax receivable agreement payments and identified the timing of the utilization of the tax attributes. The tax receivable agreement liability, related to exchanges as of the Business Combination date, is revalued at the end of each reporting period with the gain or loss as well as the associated interest reflected in change in tax receivable agreement liability in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in the period in which the event occurred. We did not have a tax receivable agreement prior to the Business Combination.

Gain from Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liability

We recorded a gain of $18.7 million during the three months ended August 31, 2021 for the change in fair value on the revaluation of our warrant liability associated with our public, private placement and forward purchase warrants. We are required to revalue the warrants at the end of each reporting period and reflect in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations a gain or loss from the change in fair value of the warrant liability in the period in which the change occurred. We did not have outstanding warrants prior to the Business Combination.

Loss from Change in Fair Value of Contingent Consideration

We recorded a loss of $16.8 million during the three months ended August 31, 2021 for the change in fair value on the revaluation of our contingent consideration associated with our restricted Series B-1 and B-2 common stock and Sponsor Side Letter. We are required to revalue the contingent consideration at the end of each reporting period or upon conversion and reflect in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations a gain or loss from the change in fair value of the contingent consideration in the period in which the change occurred. The Series B-1 common stock converted into Class A Common Stock on June 8, 2021. We did not have restricted Series B-1 and B-2 common stock prior to the Business Combination.

The decrease in subscriptions revenue was primarily due to $36.7 million amortization of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue related to the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination, partially offset by new organic subscription sales predominantly driven by increases in products utilized across our current customer portfolio.

Professional services revenue was $31.6 million for the six months ended August 31, 2021, a $5.3 million, or 20%, increase compared to $26.3 million for the six months ended August 31, 2020.

The tax receivable agreement liability, related to exchanges as of the Business Combination date, is revalued at the end of each reporting period with the gain or loss as well as the associated interest reflected in change in tax receivable agreement liability in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in the period in which the event occurred. We did not have a tax receivable agreement prior to the Business Combination.

In addition, under ASC 450, transactions with partnership unit holders after the acquisition date will result in additional Tax Receivable Agreement liabilities that are recorded on a gross undiscounted basis. The increase in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability under ASC 450 for the six months ended August 31, 2021 was $10.1 million.

Loss before income taxes was $186.0 million for the six months ended August 31, 2021, a $159.0 million increase compared to $26.9 million for the six months ended August 31, 2020. This increase is primarily related to a loss of $41.2 million for the fair value adjustments for the warrant liability and $90.0 million associated with the fair value adjustments for the contingent consideration liability related to the Sponsor Side Letter and restricted Series B-1 and B-2 common stock along with the $36.7 million amortization of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue related to the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination. These expenses were partially offset by $24.4 million of lower interest expense in the first half of fiscal 2022 compared to the same period of the prior year.

Income tax expense was $7.4 million for the six months ended August 31, 2021 compared to $14.4 million for the six months ended August 31, 2020. The effective tax rate was 4.0% for the six months ended August 31, 2021, compared to 53.5%, for the six months ended August 31, 2020. The overall change in the effective tax rate was primarily due to significant nondeductible mark-to-market losses associated with contingent liabilities and certain equity consideration liabilities related to the Business Combination as well as the impact of losses attributable to our noncontrolling interest in our affiliate.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have included below Non-GAAP revenue, Non-GAAP subscriptions revenue, Non-GAAP gross profit, Non-GAAP gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP performance measures that we use to supplement our results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance, as they are similar to measures reported by our public competitors and are regularly used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in analyzing operating performance and prospects. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to be a substitute for any U.S. GAAP financial measure and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of performance of other companies in other industries or within the same industry.

We calculate and define Non-GAAP revenue and subscriptions revenue excluding amortization of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment related to the purchase price allocation in the Business Combination. We calculate and define Non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit excluding amortization of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation and certain other non-cash and non-recurring items. We define and calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income or losses excluding interest income or expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and further adjusted for the following items: amortization of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment, transaction-related costs, changes in the tax receivable agreement liability, (gain) loss from changes in the fair value of the warrant liability and contingent consideration, share-based compensation and certain other non-cash and non-recurring items as described in the reconciliation below. We also report Non-GAAP gross profit and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Non-GAAP revenue as additional measures to evaluate financial performance.

38

We include these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by management to evaluate our core operating performance and trends and to make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital and new investments. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain expenses that are required in accordance with U.S. GAAP because they are non-recurring (for example, in the case of transaction-related costs and amortization of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment), non-cash (for example, in the case of depreciation, amortization, changes in the tax receivable agreement liability, (gain) loss from changes in the fair value of the warrant liability and contingent consideration, share-based compensation and amortization of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment) or are not related to our underlying business performance (for example, in the case of interest income and expense). There are limitations to non-GAAP financial measures because they exclude charges and credits that are required to be included in the U.S. GAAP financial presentation. The items excluded from U.S. GAAP financial measures such as net income or loss to arrive at non-GAAP financial measures are significant components for understanding and assessing our financial performance. As a result, non-GAAP financial measures should be considered together with, and not alternatives to, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We measure liquidity in terms of our ability to fund the cash requirements of our business operations, including working capital, capital expenditure needs, contractual obligations and other commitments, with cash flows from operations and other sources of funding. Current working capital needs relate mainly to employee compensation and benefits as well as interest and debt. Our ability to expand and grow our business will depend on many factors, including working capital needs and the evolution of our operating cash flows.

43

We had $473.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, including $280.0 million of PIPE financing proceeds for the BluJay Acquisition, and $75.0 million of unused borrowing capacity under our 2021 Revolving Credit Facility as of August 31, 2021. See Note 9, Notes Payableto the Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. We believe our existing cash and cash equivalents, cash provided by operating activities and, if necessary, the borrowing capacity under our 2021 Revolving Credit Facility will be sufficient to meet our working capital, debt repayment and capital expenditure requirements for at least the next twelve months. See Note 3, BluJay Acquisitionto the Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the additional equity and debt financing related to the purchase of BluJay, which included increasing the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility by $80.0 million to a total of $155.0 million on September 1, 2021.

In the future, we may enter into arrangements to acquire or invest in complementary businesses. To facilitate these acquisitions or investments, we may seek additional equity or debt financing.

Debt

2021 Term Loan and Revolving Credit Facility

On February 4, 2021, as part of the Business Combination, E2open, LLC entered into the 2021 Term Loan for $525.0 million and the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility for $75.0 million. The 2021 Term Loan will mature on February 4, 2028, while the revolver will mature on February 4, 2026. The 2021 Term Loan has a variable interest rate which was 3.75% and 3.69% as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. Principal payments of $1.3 million are due on the last day of each February, May, August and November commencing August 2021. As of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, the 2021 Term Loan had a principal balance outstanding of $523.7 million and $525.0 million, respectively, and there were no amounts drawn on the revolver.

On September 1, 2021 as part of the BluJay Acquisition, the 2021 Term Loan was increased by $380.0 million and the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility was increased by $80.0 million to $155.0 million. On September 29, 2021, we borrowed $15.0 million under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility for daily operating activities. There were no amounts drawn on the revolver prior to September 29, 2021.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended August 31, 2021 was $41.5 million compared to $42.0 million for the six months ended August 31, 2020. The $0.5 million decrease in cash was primarily driven by expenses related to the BluJay Acquisition offset by $8.4 million additional cash provided by working capital during the first six months of fiscal 2022 compared to the first six months of fiscal 2021.

Net cash used in investing activities was $17.4 million and $7.8 million for the six months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The use of cash for both periods was primarily driven by the acquisition of property and software related to our data centers.

44

Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended August 31, 2021 was $253.3 million compared to net cash used of $20.3 million for six months ended August 31, 2020. The increase in cash provided by financing activities was mainly due to the PIPE investment proceeds received in advance of the BluJay Acquisition of $280.0 million. During the first six months of fiscal 2021 we received $1.8 million of proceeds from the sale of membership units . There were no sales of units or stock during the first six months of fiscal 2022. The net repayment of debt was $19.7 million in fiscal 2021 compared to $1.6 million in fiscal 2022. The repayment of financing lease obligations was $3.5 million higher in fiscal 2022 than in fiscal 2021. Additionally, we paid $2.5 million for the repurchase of common stock to pay withholding taxes and $16.8 million for the repurchase of Common Units upon conversion in fiscal year 2022.

Tax Receivable Agreement

Concurrently with the completion of the Business Combination, we entered into the Tax Receivable Agreement with certain selling equity holders of E2open Holdings. Pursuant to the Tax Receivable Agreement, we will pay certain sellers, as applicable, 85% of the tax savings that we realize from increases in the tax basis in E2open Holdings' assets as a result of the sale of E2open Holdings' equity interests, the future exchange of the Common Units for shares of Class A Common Stock (or cash), certain pre-existing tax attributes of certain sellers and certain other tax benefits related to entering into the Tax Receivable Agreement including tax benefits attributable to payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement. The term of the Tax Receivable Agreement will continue until all such tax benefits have been utilized or expired unless we exercise our right to terminate the Tax Receivable Agreement for an amount representing the present value of anticipated future tax benefits under the Tax Receivable Agreement or certain other acceleration events occur. We will retain the benefit of the remaining 15% of these cash savings.

Amounts payable under the Tax Receivable Agreement will be contingent upon, among other things, our generation of taxable income over the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement. If we do not generate sufficient taxable income in the aggregate over the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement to utilize the tax benefits subject to the Tax Receivable Agreement, we would not be required to make the related payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement. Although the amount of any payments required to be made under the Tax Receivable Agreement may be significant, the timing of these payments will vary and will generally be limited to one payment per member per year. The amount of such payments is also generally limited to the extent we are unable to utilize the full amount of any tax benefits subject to the Tax Receivable Agreement in a given period.

The liability related to the Tax Receivable Agreement was $63.3 million as of August 31, 2021, consisting of Tax Receivable liabilities recorded under ASC 805 of $53.2 million and $10.1 million under ASC 450, assuming (1) a constant corporate tax rate of 24.1%, (2) no dispositions of corporate subsidiaries, (3) no material changes in tax law and (4) we do not elect an early termination of the Tax Receivable Agreement. However, due to the uncertainty of various factors, including: (a) the timing and value of future exchanges, (b) the amount and timing of our future taxable income, (c) changes in our tax rate, (d) no future dispositions of any corporate stock and (e) changes in the tax law, the likely tax savings we will realize and the resulting amounts we are likely to pay to the E2open Sellers pursuant to the Tax Receivable Agreement are uncertain. Additionally, interest will accrue on the portion of the Tax Receivable Agreement liability recorded under ASC 805 at a rate of LIBOR plus 100 basis points. The portion of the Tax Receivable Agreement liability under ASC 450 is recorded on a gross undiscounted basis.

The liability recorded on the balance sheet does not include an estimate of the amount of payments to be made if certain sellers exchanged their remaining interests in E2open Holdings for our common stock, as this amount is not readily determinable and is dependent on several future variables, including timing of future exchanges, stock price at date of exchange, tax attributes of the individual parties to the exchange and changes in future applicable federal and state tax rates.

In addition, if we exercise our right to terminate the Tax Receivable Agreement or certain other acceleration events occur, we are required to make immediate cash payments. Such cash payments will be equal to the present value of the assumed future realized tax benefits based on a set of assumptions and using an agreed upon discount rate, as defined in the Tax Receivable Agreement. The early termination payment may be made significantly in advance of the actual realization, if any, of those future tax benefits. Such payments will be calculated based on certain assumptions, including that we have sufficient taxable income to utilize the full amount of any tax benefits subject to the Tax Receivable Agreement over the period specified therein. The payments that we would be required to make will generally reduce the amount of the overall cash flow that might have otherwise been available to us, but we expect the cash tax savings we will realize from the utilization of the related tax benefits will exceed the amount of any required payments.

45

We are entitled to receive quarterly tax distributions from E2open Holdings, subject to limitations imposed by applicable law and contractual restrictions. The cash received from such tax distributions will first be used to satisfy any tax liability and then make any payments required under the Tax Receivable Agreement. We expect that such tax distributions will be sufficient to fund both our tax liability and the required payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement.

Conversion of Contingent Consideration

The contingent consideration liability was $65.8 million and $150.8 million as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021, respectively. The fair value remeasurements resulted in a gain of $18.7 million and a loss of $41.2 million for the three and six months ended August 31, 2021, respectively. There was no gain or loss for the three and six months ended August 31, 2020 as the contingent consideration liability was not recorded until February 4, 2021. The contingent liability represents the Series B-1 common stock, Series B-2 common stock, Series 1 RCUs and Series 2 RCUs.

As of June 8, 2021, the Series B-1 common stock and Series 1 RCUs were no longer reflected as a contingent consideration liability as the 5-day VWAP of our Class A Common Stock exceeded $13.50 per share. This triggering event resulted in the 8,120,273 Series B-1 common stock converting into Class A Common Stock and 4,379,557 Series 1 RCUs becoming 4,379,557 Common Units of E2open Holdings along with entitling the holders of the newly vested common units to 4,379,557 shares of Class V Common Stock.

Leases

Effective March 1, 2021, we began accounting for leases in accordance with ASC 842, Leases, which requires lessees to recognize lease liabilities and ROU assets on the balance sheet for contracts that provide lessees with the right to control the use of identified assets for periods of greater than 12 months. Upon adoption of ASC 842, we recognized an operating lease liability of $23.0 million, a ROU operating asset of $22.4 million and no change to retained earnings.

Our non-cancelable operating leases for our office spaces have various expiration dates through August 2029. Under these leases, our undiscounted future cash flows utilized in the calculation of the lease liabilities as of August 31, 2021 were: $2.8 million for September 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022, $5.0 million for fiscal 2023, $4.2 million for fiscal 2024, $3.1 million for fiscal 2025, $2.4 million for fiscal 2026 and $4.6 million thereafter. These numbers include interest of $2.4 million.

Our non-cancelable financing lease arrangements relate to software and computer equipment and have various expiration dates through August 2024. We have the right to purchase the software and computer equipment anytime during the lease or upon lease completion. Under these leases, our undiscounted future cash flows utilized in the calculation of the lease liabilities as of August 31, 2021 were: $0.6 million for September 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022, $2.3 million for fiscal 2023 and $2.1 million for fiscal 2024. These numbers include interest of $0.4 million.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We are responsible for reimbursement of outstanding obligations related to any letters of credit issued under our $15.0 million available letters of credit accessible under our $75.0 million 2021 Revolving Credit Facility. We do not have any other material off-balance sheet arrangements or contingent commitments. There were no outstanding letters of credit or borrowings under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility as of August 31, 2021 and February 28, 2021.

On September 1, 2021, the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility was increased by $80.0 million to $155.0 million and the letter of credit sublimit was increased from $15.0 million to $30.0 million upon completion of the BluJay Acquisition. On September 29, 2021, we borrowed $15.0 million under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility for daily operating activities.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Preparation of the financial statements requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that impact the reported amount of revenue and expenses, assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We consider an accounting judgment, estimate or assumption to be critical when (1) the estimate or assumption is complex in nature or requires a high degree of judgment and (2) the use of different judgments, estimates and assumptions could have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies to the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in our 2021 Form 10-K.

There have been no changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021 from those previously disclosed in Part II, Item 7, Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operationsin our 2021 Annual Report.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

There have been no material changes in the market risks during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021 from those previously disclosed in Part II, Item 7A., Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk of our 2021 Form 10-K.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We have disclosure controls and procedures in place to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. These controls and procedures are accumulated and communicated to management, including our President and Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we performed an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of the end of the period covered by the Quarterly Report. In designing and evaluating these disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There have not been any changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended August 31, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. We review our disclosure controls and procedures, which may include internal controls over financial reporting, on an ongoing basis. From time to time, management makes changes to enhance the effectiveness of these controls and ensure that they continue to meet the needs of our business activities over time.

PART II-OTHERINFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

From time to time, we are subject to contingencies that arise in the ordinary course of business. We record an accrual for a contingency when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. We do not currently believe the resolution of any such contingencies will have a material adverse effect upon our Consolidated Balance Sheets, Statements of Operations or Statements of Cash Flows.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

There have been no material changes in our risk factors during the three and six months ended August 31, 2021 from those previously disclosed in Part I, Item 1A., Risk Factors of our 2021 Form 10-K and Part II, Item 1A., Risk Factors of our May 31, 2021 Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on July 16, 2021 (Q1 2022 Form 10-Q), other than set forth below. You should carefully consider the risk factors discussed in our 2021 Form 10-K and Q1 2022 Form 10-Q, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial may also materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or future results.

Risks Related to Our Business Model

Cyber-attacks and security vulnerabilities could result in serious harm to our reputation, business and financial condition.

Threats to network and data security are constantly evolving and becoming increasingly diverse and sophisticated. Our products and services, servers and computer systems and those of third parties that we rely on in our operations could be vulnerable to cybersecurity risks. As such, we may be subject to risks inherent to companies that process client data for client mission critical systems like SCM solutions.

47

As we continue to grow and as threat actors have become more sophisticated, we have observed increased threat activity to our products and systems. We are the target of attempts on a regular basis to identify and exploit system vulnerabilities and/or penetrate or bypass our security measures in order to gain unauthorized access to our systems. To mitigate these risks, we employ multiple methods at different layers of our systems to defend against intrusion and attack. We do not have visibility into all unauthorized incursions, however, and our systems could experience incursions of which we are not aware. When we become aware of unauthorized access to our systems, we take steps intended to identify and remediate the source and impact of the incursions. Despite our efforts to keep our systems secure and remedy identified vulnerabilities, future attacks could be successful and result in contractual liability to clients or loss of client trust and ultimately client business.

We may experience breaches of our security measures due to human error, system errors or vulnerabilities. In particular, our platform and the other systems or networks used in our business may experience an increase in attempted cyber-attacks, targeted intrusion, ransomware and phishing campaigns. We maintain errors, omission and cyber liability insurance policies covering security and privacy damages. However, we cannot be certain that our coverage will be adequate for liabilities actually incurred or that insurance will continue to be available to us on economically reasonable terms, or at all.

In addition, while we are continually taking steps to enhance our cybersecurity defenses, increased investments, coordination, and resources are required to achieve our objective of ensuring over time that our cybersecurity infrastructure meets or exceeds evolving industry standards. Achieving this objective will require continued effort and vigilance, including sustained investment of money and management resources in order to support the ongoing development and maintenance of systems that meet these standards.

At present, we believe the regulatory and private action risks related to personal data we process as part of our business-to-business supply chain solutions are low. We process a limited amount of personal data, typically business contact information, supplied by our clients. Regulations surrounding personal data are rapidly changing and that makes global compliance challenging and unpredictable. Failure to comply with regulations may subject us to regulatory investigations, reputational harm, contractual liability to clients and potential liability to data subjects.

Risks Related to our Indebtedness

Our substantial level of indebtedness and significant leverage may materially adversely affect our ability to raise additional capital to fund our operations and limit our ability to react to changes in the economy or our industry.

We have a substantial amount of indebtedness and are significantly leveraged. As of August 31, 2021, we had outstanding indebtedness in the principal amount of $523.8 million. As part of the BluJay Acquisition, we incurred an additional $380.0 million and the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility was increased by $80.0 million to $155.0 million. Our substantial level of indebtedness increases the possibility that we may be unable to generate sufficient cash to pay the principal, interest or other amounts due in respect of our indebtedness. Our substantial indebtedness, combined with our other financial obligations and contractual commitments, may have a material adverse impact on us and our business.
