Item 5.07

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On November 15, 2022, Tiga Acquisition Corp., a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company” or “Tiga“), held an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders (the “Extraordinary General Meeting“) in connection with its previously announced business combination with Grindr Group LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Grindr“), pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 9, 2022, by and among Tiga, Tiga Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited company and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Tiga (“Merger Sub I“), and Grindr, as amended by the First Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 5, 2022, by and among Tiga, Merger Sub I, Tiga Merger Sub II LLC, a Delaware limited company and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Tiga (“Merger Sub II“), and Grindr (collectively, the “Merger Agreement“). Defined terms used below have the meanings assigned to them in the Merger Agreement unless otherwise specified.

At the Extraordinary General Meeting, the Company’s shareholders voted on the proposals set forth below, each of which is described in greater detail in the proxy statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC“) on November 1, 2022 (the “Proxy Statement“). At the Extraordinary General Meeting, there were 27,280,518 shares voted by proxy or in person.

Proposals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 below were approved and, although sufficient votes were received to approve Proposal 8, an adjournment of the Extraordinary General Meeting was not necessary due to the approval of Proposals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. The number of votes cast for or against, as well as abstentions and broker non-votes, if applicable, with respect to each proposal is set out below:

Proposal No. 1 – To consider and vote upon, as an ordinary resolution, a proposal to approve and adopt the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement provides for, among other things, the merger of Merger Sub I with and into Grindr (the “First Merger“), with Grindr surviving the First Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Tiga (Grindr, in its capacity as the surviving company of the First Merger, is sometimes referred to herein as the “Surviving Company“), and as promptly as practicable and as part of the same overall transaction as the First Merger, the merger of such Surviving Company with and into Merger Sub II (the “Second Merger” and, together with the First Merger, the “Mergers“), with Merger Sub II being the surviving entity of the Second Merger, in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement as more fully described in the Proxy Statement -we refer to this proposal as the “Business Combination Proposal”.

Forward-Looking Statements Legend

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 with respect to the proposed transaction between Grindr and Tiga. These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “plan,” “propose,” “forecast,” “seek,” “guidance,” “target,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this document, including but not limited to: (i) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the price of Tiga’s securities, (ii) the risk that the transaction may not be completed by Tiga’s business combination deadline and the potential failure to obtain an extension of the business combination deadline if sought by Tiga, (iii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the adoption of the Merger Agreement by the shareholders of Tiga, the satisfaction of the minimum amount following redemptions by Tiga’s public shareholders and the receipt of certain governmental and regulatory approvals in Tiga’s trust account, (iv) the lack of a third party valuation in determining whether or not to pursue the proposed transaction, (v) the inability to complete the Forward Purchase Commitment, the Backstop Commitment or the PIPE Investment (each as defined in the Merger Agreement), (vi) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement, (vii) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on Grindr’s business relationships, operating results, and business generally, (viii) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of Grindr, (ix) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Grindr or against Tiga related to the Merger Agreement or the Business Combination, (x) the ability to maintain the listing of Tiga’s securities on a national securities exchange, (xi) the potential benefits of the Business Combination (including with respect to shareholder value), (xii) the effects of competition on Grindr’s future business, (xiii) risks related to political and macroeconomic uncertainty, (xiv) the amount of redemption requests made by Tiga’s public shareholders, (xv) the ability of Tiga or the combined company to issue equity or equity-linked securities in connection with the Business Combination or in the future and (xvi) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2022 monkeypox outbreak. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section of Tiga’s registration on Form S-4 (File No. 333-264902), the registration statement on Form S-4 discussed above and other documents filed by Tiga from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Grindr and Tiga assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Neither Grindr nor Tiga gives any assurance that either Grindr or Tiga, or the combined company, will achieve its expectations.
