Based on the estimated maximum number of shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“

”), of the registrant (“

This number is based on the sum of (a) the product of (i) the sum of (A) 197,798,692 issued and outstanding shares of Dave Class A Common Stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “
Dave Class

Upon the effectiveness of the second amended and restated certificate of incorporation of VPCC, the par value of Combined Company Class A Common Stock and Combined Company Class V Common Stock will each be $0.0001 per share. The estimates set forth in this footnote (1) (including, without limitation, with respect to the share counts and exchange ratio) are as of October 31, 2021 and the estimated maximum number of shares of Combined Company Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Business Combination described herein is not expected to exceed the amount set forth above.

Pursuant to Rules 457(c) and 457(f)(1) promulgated under the Securities Act and solely for the purpose of calculating the registration fee, the proposed aggregate maximum offering price of the Combined Company Class A Common Stock is (i) $9.93 (the average of the high and low prices of VPCC Class A common stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on October 1, 2021) multiplied by (ii) 301,166,646 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock to be registered, and the proposed aggregate maximum offering price of the Combined Company Class V Common Stock is (i) $9.93 (the average of the high and low prices of VPCC Class A common stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on October 1, 2021) multiplied by (ii) 75,540,840 shares of Combined Company Class V Common Stock to be registered. For purposes of calculating the registration fee, the Combined Class V Common Stock is treated as having the same value as the Combined Company Class A Common Stock as each share of Combined Class V Common Stock common stock is convertible into one share of Combined Class A Common Stock.

VPC IMPACT ACQUISITION HOLDINGS III, INC.
PROSPECTUS FOR
301,166,646 SHARES OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK
AND
75,540,840 SHARES OF CLASS V COMMON STOCK
OF
VPC IMPACT ACQUISITION HOLDINGS III, INC.
TO BE RENAMED “DAVE INC.” FOLLOWING THE BUSINESS COMBINATION DESCRIBED HEREIN)
Dear VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings III, Inc. Stockholders:
On June 7, 2021, VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings III, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“
VPCC
”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as it may be amended and/or restated from time to time, the “
Merger Agreement
”), by and among VPCC, Dave Inc., a Delaware corporation (“
Dave
”), Bear Merger Company I Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of VPCC (“
First Merger Sub
”), and Bear Merger Company II LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of VPCC (“
Second Merger Sub
” and together with the First Merger Sub, the “
Merger Subs
”). If (i) the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby are adopted by Dave Stockholders (as defined below), (ii) the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the issuance of Combined Company Class A Common Stock (as defined below) and Combined Company Class V Common Stock (as defined below) to be issued as the merger consideration, are approved by the VPCC Stockholders (as defined below), and (iii) the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby are subsequently completed, First Merger Sub will merge with and into Dave (the “
First Merger
”), with Dave surviving the First Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of VPCC (such company, in its capacity as the surviving corporation of the First Merger, the “
Surviving Corporation
”), immediately followed by the Surviving Corporation merging with and into Second Merger Sub (the “
Second Merger
,” the Second Merger together with the First Merger, the “
Mergers
” and the Mergers together with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “
Business Combination
” or the “
Transactions
”), with Second Merger Sub (such entity, following the Second Merger, the “
Surviving Entity
”) surviving the Second Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of VPCC (VPCC following such Mergers, hereinafter referred to as the “
Combined Company
”). Following the Mergers, the Combined Company will operate under the name “Dave Inc.” and the Surviving Entity will operate under the name “Dave Operating LLC”.
The Merger Agreement, provides, among other things, that prior to the closing of the Mergers (the “
Closing
”), Dave will take all necessary action to cause the following transactions (collectively referred to in this proxy statement/prospectus as the “
Recapitalization
”):
 
 
 
each share of Dave preferred stock that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the First Merger (the “
Effective Time
”) to automatically convert into a number of shares of Dave common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “
Dave Common Stock
”), at their respective conversion ratio;
 
 
 
a dual-class common stock structure to be implemented consisting of (x) Class A common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “
Dave Class
 A Common Stock
”), with respect to which each holder thereof has one vote per share on each matter that is subject to the vote of the stockholders of Dave (the “
Dave Stockholders
”), and (y) Class V common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “
Dave Class
 V Common Stock
” and together with the Dave Class A Common Stock (including any vested shares of restricted Dave Common Stock), the “
Dave Stock
”), with respect to which each holder thereof has 10 votes per share on each matter that is subject to the vote of the Dave Stockholders;
 
 
each authorized share of the Dave Common Stock to automatically convert, effective as of the Recapitalization, into one share of Dave Class A Common Stock; and
 
 
 
immediately thereafter, each share of Dave Class A Common Stock held by Jason Wilk, the Chief Executive Officer and
Co-Founder
of Dave (“
Mr.
 Wilk
”), as of immediately prior to the consummation of the Recapitalization to be exchanged or converted into one share of Dave Class V Common Stock.
The Dave Stockholders (including holders of restricted shares of Dave Common Stock (“
Dave Restricted Stock
”)) and holders of vested Dave Options (as defined below) will receive an aggregate merger consideration pursuant to the Merger Agreement with an implied value of $3,500,000,000 (the “
Equity Value
”), consisting of a number of shares of Combined Company Common Stock, with each deemed to have a value of $10.00 per share, equal to the Equity Value
divided by
$10.00 (such aggregate merger consideration, the “
Aggregate Stock Consideration
”).
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time (and following the consummation of the Recapitalization), (a) each share of Dave Class A Common Stock held by the Dave Stockholders will be cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive a number of shares of newly issued Class A common stock of the Combined Company, par value $0.0001 (“
Combined Company Class
 A Common Stock
”), equal to an exchange ratio (the “
Per Share Dave Stock Consideration
”) determined by dividing the Aggregate Stock Consideration by the sum of (without duplication): (i) the aggregate number of shares of Dave Stock outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and following the consummation of the Recapitalization (including all shares of Dave Restricted Stock, whether vested or unvested); (ii) the aggregate number of shares of Dave Stock that are issuable upon the exercise or settlement of all Dave Options and Dave
Non-Plan
Options (in each case, as defined below) that are unexpired, issued, outstanding and vested as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (assuming, for purposes of this calculation, that all such Dave Options and Dave
Non-Plan
Options are exercised on a net exercise basis based on the assumption, solely for purposes of this calculation, that the fair market value of each share underlying such Dave Options or Dave
Non-Plan
Options equals (x) the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration multiplied by (y) ten dollars ($10.00)); and (iii) the aggregate number of shares of Dave Stock that are issuable upon the exercise or settlement of all Dave Warrants that are unexpired, issued and outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (assuming, for purposes of this calculation, that all such Dave Warrants are vested and exercised on a net exercise basis based on the assumption, solely for purposes of this calculation, that the fair market value of each share underlying such Dave Warrants equals the (x) Per Share Dave Stock Consideration multiplied by (y) ten dollars ($10.00)) (the “
Dave Stock Adjusted Fully Diluted Shares
”) and (b) each share of Dave Class V Common Stock held by the Dave Stockholders will be cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive a number of shares of newly authorized and issued Class V common stock of the Combined Company, par value $0.0001 (“
Combined Company Class
 V Common Stock
” and together with the Combined Company Class A Common Stock, “
Combined Company Common Stock
”), equal to the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration.
Each option to purchase shares of capital stock of Dave (“
Dave Option
”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) (other than certain options to purchase shares of capital stock of Dave granted outside of the terms and conditions of Dave’s stock plans (“
Dave
Non-Plan
Options
”)) will be automatically assumed by the Combined Company and converted into an option to acquire an adjusted number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock (pursuant to a ratio based on the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration) (each such resulting option, a “
Rollover Option
”) at an adjusted exercise price per share and will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting and exercisability terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Dave Option, except to the extent such terms or conditions are rendered inoperative by the Transactions or such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as the parties to the Merger Agreement may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Options. The shares of Dave Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Dave Options that are outstanding, unexercised and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time (such options, the “
Unvested Dave Options
”) are not included in the calculation of the “
Dave Stock Adjusted Fully Diluted Shares
” for purposes of the calculation of the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration, and the shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Rollover Options representing at the Effective Time Unvested Dave Options (such shares, “
Unvested Rollover Option Shares
”) are not
considered a part of the Aggregate Stock Consideration. The Unvested Rollover Option Shares will reduce the shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock initially available for issuance under the new equity incentive plan that the Combined Company will adopt as of the Closing.
Each Dave
Non-Plan
Option that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically cancelled for no consideration.
Each award of Dave Restricted Stock that is outstanding and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically assumed by VPCC and converted into an award of restricted stock with respect to an adjusted number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock (pursuant to a ratio based on the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration) (the “
Rollover Restricted Stock
”) and will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Dave Restricted Stock, except to the extent such terms or conditions are rendered inoperative by the Transactions or such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as the parties to the Merger Agreement may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Restricted Stock.
Each warrant to purchase shares of capital stock of Dave (“
Dave Warrants
”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically terminated in accordance with the terms of the applicable Dave Warrant and be of no further force or effect as of the Effective Time.
Pursuant to the terms of the Founder Holder Agreement, the Initial Stockholders have agreed to (a) surrender to VPCC, on a pro rata basis, immediately prior to the consummation of the Mergers and for no consideration, up to 951,622 shares of VPCC Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “
VPCC Class A Common
Stock
”) (after giving effect to the conversion in connection with the Closing of all then-outstanding shares of VPCC Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “
VPCC Class B Common Stock
”)) comprising the Founder Holder Contingent Closing Shares (as defined in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus), in the event that the number of shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock equal to (x) the shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock held by the VPCC Stockholders (other than the Founder Holders) that are redeemed in connection with the VPCC Share Redemptions
minus
(y) the shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock purchased by Sponsor or one or more of its affiliates or certain related parties prior to the Closing in connection with a VPCC Share Redemptions Alternative Financing (as defined in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus), represents greater than 20% of the shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock held by the VPCC Stockholders as of the date of the Merger Agreement; and (b) forfeit on a pro rata basis, up to 1,586,037 shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock comprising the Founder Holder Earnout Shares in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, such that 100% of the Founder Holder Earnout Shares will be forfeited in the event that the Combined Company Class A Common Stock does not achieve certain trading price as later disclosed in this proxy statement/prospectus.
In addition, pursuant to Subscription Agreements that VPCC entered into with certain investors (the “
PIPE
Investors
”) substantially concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, immediately prior to the consummation of the Mergers, such PIPE Investors will purchase an aggregate of 21,000,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock for $10.00 per share. On August 17, 2021, one of the investors agreed to pre-fund its $15,000,000 obligation under the Subscription Agreement for a promissory note convertible into 1,500,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock at Closing (as such term is defined in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus).
It is anticipated that following the Closing: (a) the Public Stockholders (as defined in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus) are expected to own approximately 6.5% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 2.5% of the voting power; (b) Dave Stockholders are expected to own approximately 86.5% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 94.9% of the voting power, of which Mr. Wilk is expected to own approximately 18.1% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 68.9% of the voting power; (c) the Initial Stockholders (as defined in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus) are expected to collectively own approximately 1.6% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock (excluding the VPCC Funds Shares, as such term is defined in this proxy statement/prospectus) and hold approximately 0.6% of the
voting power and (d) the PIPE Investors are expected to own approximately 5.4% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 2.0% of the voting power. These percentages assume (i) that no Public Stockholders exercise their redemption rights in connection with the proposed Business Combination, (ii) the issuance of 21,000,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock to the PIPE Investors, (iii) none of the outstanding warrants to purchase Combined Company Class A Common Stock are exercised and (iv) the repurchase of certain shares of Class A and Class V Common Stock held by selling Holders pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement. If there are redemptions by the Public Stockholders up to the maximum level that would permit completion of the Business Combination, (a) the Public Stockholders will own none of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold none of the voting power; (b) Dave Stockholders will own approximately 92.8% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 97.5% of the voting power, of which Mr. Wilk is expected to own approximately 20.4% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 72.0% of the voting power; (c) the Initial Stockholders will own approximately 1.5% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 0.5% of the voting power; and (d) the PIPE Investors will own approximately 5.7% of the outstanding shares of Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 2.0% of the voting power. These percentages assume (i) that 25,376,598 Public Stockholders exercise their redemption rights in connection with the proposed Business Combination and (ii) the issuance of 21,000,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock to the PIPE Investors. Immediately following the Closing, Mr. Wilk and his permitted transferees will control the Combined Company and the Combined Company will be a controlled company within the meaning of the corporate governance standards of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“
Nasdaq
”). For a description of the exemptions from Nasdaq’s corporate governance standards that are available to controlled companies, please see the section titled “
Combined Company Management After the Business Combination
Controlled Company Exemption
.”
VPCC’s units, VPCC Class A Common Stock and public warrants are publicly traded on the NYSE under the ticker symbols “VPCC.U,” “VPCC” and “VPCC WS,” respectively. We intend to apply to list the Combined Company Common Stock, including shares of the Combined Company Common Stock issued in connection with the Mergers, and the public warrants on Nasdaq under the symbols “DAVE” and “DAVEW” upon the Closing. VPCC will not have units traded following the Closing. Following the Closing, VPCC intends to change its name to Dave Inc.
VPCC will hold a special meeting of the VPCC Stockholders (the “
Special Meeting
”) to consider matters relating to the proposed Mergers. VPCC and Dave cannot complete the Mergers unless (i) the VPCC Stockholders approve the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the issuance of Combined Company Class A Common Stock and Combined Company Class V Common Stock to be issued as the merger consideration, and (ii) the Dave Stockholders consent to the adoption and approval of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby. VPCC is sending you the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus to ask you to vote in favor of these and the other matters described in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus.
In light of the ongoing developments related to the
COVID-19
pandemic and to protect the health of VPCC Stockholders and the community, the Special Meeting will be a completely virtual meeting of stockholders conducted via live audio webcast.

The eligible stockholder list will also be available at the Special Meeting for examination by any stockholder of record present at such meeting.
We are providing the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus and accompanying proxy card to the VPCC Stockholders in connection with the solicitation of proxies to be voted at the Special Meeting and at any adjournments of the Special Meeting. Information about the Special Meeting, the Business Combination and other related business to be considered by the VPCC Stockholders at the Special Meeting is included in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus.
Whether or not you plan to attend the Special Meeting, we urge all of the VPCC Stockholders to read the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus, including the Annexes and the accompanying financial statements of VPCC and Dave, carefully and in their entirety.
After careful consideration, the VPCC Board has approved the Business Combination and recommends that the VPCC Stockholders vote “FOR” adoption of the Merger Agreement and approval of the Business Combination, including the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and the Mergers, and “FOR” all other proposals presented to the VPCC Stockholders in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus. When you consider the VPCC Board’s recommendation of these proposals, you should keep in mind that VPCC’s directors and officers have interests in the Business Combination that may conflict with your interests as a stockholder. Please see the sections titled
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement
Interests of Certain VPCC Persons in the Business Combination
” and
“VPCC Special Meeting of Stockholders
Recommendation to VPCC Stockholders
” for additional information.
In connection with VPCC’s initial public offering (the “
IPO
”), VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings Sponsor III, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (our “
Sponsor
”) and the other holders of VPCC Class B Common Stock prior to the IPO (the “
Initial Stockholders
”), agreed to vote all shares of VPCC Class B Common Stock and any shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock purchased during or after the IPO in favor of the Business Combination. Currently, the Initial Stockholders own approximately 20.0% of VPCC’s issued and outstanding common stock, including all of the outstanding shares of VPCC Class B Common Stock.
Pursuant to VPCC’s Existing Charter, a holder of VPCC’s Public Shares (as defined below) may request that VPCC redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s Public Shares for cash if the Business Combination is consummated. You will be entitled to receive cash for any Public Shares to be redeemed if, prior to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on [●], 2021 (two business days before the scheduled date of the Special Meeting), you (i) tender your Public Shares physically or electronically and (ii) submit a request in writing that VPCC redeem your Public Shares for cash, including the legal name, phone number and address of the beneficial owner of the shares for which redemption is requested to VPCC’s transfer agent.
Holders of units issued in the IPO (“
Units
”) must elect to separate the underlying shares (“
Public Shares
”) and warrants (“
Public Warrants
”) prior to exercising redemption rights with respect to the Public Shares. If holders hold their Units in an account at a brokerage firm or bank, holders must notify their broker or bank that they elect to separate the Units into the underlying Public Shares and Public Warrants, or if a holder holds Units registered in its own name, the holder must contact the transfer agent directly and instruct it to separate the Units. The redemption rights include the requirement that a holder must identify itself in writing as a beneficial holder and provide its legal name, phone number and address to the transfer agent in order to validly redeem its shares.
Public Stockholders may elect to redeem their Public Shares even if they vote “for” the Business Combination Proposal
. If the Business Combination is not consummated, the Public Shares will not be redeemed for cash. If a Public Stockholder (as defined below) properly exercises its right to redeem its Public Shares and timely delivers its shares to the transfer agent, VPCC will redeem each Public Share for a
per-share
price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “
Trust Account
”), calculated as of two business days prior to the Closing, including interest not previously released to VPCC to pay its income taxes, divided by the number of then issued and outstanding Public Shares. For illustrative purposes, based on the fair value of marketable securities held in the Trust Account as of September 30, 2021 of approximately $253,782,145.56, this would have amounted to approximately $10.00 per Public Share. If a Public Stockholder exercises its redemption rights, then it will be exchanging its redeemed Public Shares for cash and will no longer own such shares. See the section titled
VPCC Special Meeting of Stockholders
—Redemption Rights
” in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus for a detailed description of the procedures to be followed if you wish to redeem your Public Shares for cash.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, a holder of Public Shares, together with any affiliate of such Public Stockholder or any other person with whom such Public Stockholder is acting in concert or as a “
group
” (as defined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), will be restricted from redeeming its Public Shares with respect to more than an aggregate of 15% of the Public Shares without VPCC’s prior consent. Accordingly, if a Public Stockholder, alone or acting in concert or as a group, seeks to redeem more than 15% of the Public Shares, then any such shares in excess of that 15% limit would not be redeemed for cash unless such stockholder first obtains VPCC’s prior consent.
The Merger Agreement provides that the obligation of Dave to consummate the Business Combination is conditioned on the amount in the Trust Account, following payment to all holders of VPCC Class A Common Stock in connection with VPCC Share Redemptions (as defined below), plus the amount of funds available to VPCC outside of the Trust Account at the Closing, plus the proceeds of the PIPE Investment and the amount of any alternative financing with respect to the PIPE Investment, on terms and conditions no less favorable in the aggregate than the PIPE Investment (the “
VPCC Available Cash
”), equaling or exceeding $210,000,000. This minimum cash condition to Closing in the Merger Agreement is for the sole benefit of Dave and may be waived by it. If this condition becomes incapable of being satisfied at the Closing and continues to be incapable of being satisfied at the Closing for a period of 30 business days (after giving effect to any alternative financing that may be arranged with respect to the PIPE Investment), Dave may elect not to consummate the Business Combination and may terminate the Merger Agreement.
In no event will VPCC redeem Public Shares in an amount that would result in its net tangible assets (as determined in accordance with
Rule 3a51-1(g)(1)
of the Exchange Act) being less than $5,000,001. Holders of Public Warrants do not have redemption rights in connection with the Business Combination.
VPCC’s Initial Stockholders have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to shares of VPCC Class B Common Stock and with respect to any Public Shares they may have held in connection with the Closing and to convert such shares of VPCC Class B Common Stock into shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock in connection with the Closing. The shares of Class B common stock will be excluded from the
pro rata
calculation used to determine the
per-share
redemption price at the time of the redemptions.
The approval of each of the Business Combination Proposal, the Governance Proposals (on an advisory basis), the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal, the Repurchase Proposal and the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by holders of outstanding VPCC shares of common stock represented in person or by proxy at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon. The approval of the Charter Amendment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of VPCC’s shares of common stock entitled to vote thereon. Directors are elected by a plurality of all of the votes cast by holders of VPCC’s outstanding shares of common stock represented in person or by proxy at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon.
Your vote is very important
. Whether or not you plan to attend the Special Meeting via live audio webcast, please vote as soon as possible by following the instructions in the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus to make sure that your shares are represented at the Special Meeting. If you hold your shares in “street name” through a bank, broker or other nominee, you will need to follow the instructions provided to you by your bank, broker or other nominee to ensure that your shares are represented and voted at the Special Meeting. The Business Combination and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement will be consummated only if the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal are approved at the Special Meeting. Each of the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal are cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. The Governance Proposals and the Adjournment Proposal are not conditioned on the approval of any other Proposals.
If you sign, date and return your proxy card without indicating how you wish to vote, your proxy will be voted FOR each of the proposals presented at the Special Meeting. If you fail to return your proxy card or fail to instruct your bank, broker or other nominee how to vote, and do not attend the Special Meeting electronically, the effect will be that your shares will not be counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present at the Special Meeting. If you are a stockholder of record and you attend the Special Meeting and wish to vote electronically at the Special Meeting, you may withdraw your proxy and vote electronically at the Special Meeting.
Your attention is directed to the proxy statement/prospectus accompanying this notice (including the annexes thereto) for a more complete description of the Merger Agreement, proposed Business Combination and related
transactions and each of the proposals. We encourage you to read the accompanying proxy statement/prospectus carefully.

repurchase Combined Company Common Shares from Jason Wilk and Kyle Beilman at $10.00 per share, effective as of the Business Day following the effective time of the Second Merger (the “Repurchase Agreement”) and the transactions contemplated by the Repurchase Agreement (the “Repurchase Proposal”).
Proposal No. 9—The Adjournment Proposal—to consider and vote upon a proposal to approve the a proposal to consider and vote upon the adjournment of the Special Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary, to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies if, based upon the tabulated vote at the time of the Special Meeting, any of the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal (together the “
Condition Precedent Proposals
”) would not be duly approved and adopted by our stockholders or we determine that one or more of the Closing conditions under the Merger Agreement is not satisfied or waived (we refer to this proposal as the “
Adjournment Proposal
” and, together with the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Governance Proposals, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal, the “
Proposals
”).
 
Q:
Are the Proposals conditioned on one another?
 
A:
Yes. The Closing is conditioned on the approval of the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal at the Special Meeting. Each of the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal are cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. The Governance Proposals and the Adjournment Proposal are not conditioned on the approval of any of the other Proposals.
 
Q:
Why is VPCC providing stockholders with the opportunity to vote on the Business Combination?
 
A:
Under VPCC’s Existing Charter, VPCC must provide all holders of Public Shares with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares upon the consummation of an initial business combination either in conjunction with a tender offer or in conjunction with a stockholder vote. For business and other reasons, VPCC has elected to provide its Public Stockholders with the opportunity to have their Public Shares redeemed in connection with a stockholder vote rather than a tender offer. Therefore, VPCC is seeking to obtain the approval of its stockholders of the Business Combination Proposal in order to allow its Public Stockholders to effectuate their VPCC Share Redemptions in connection with the Closing. The approval of VPCC Stockholders of the Business Combination Proposal is also a condition to the Closing in the Merger Agreement.
 
Q:
What will happen in the Business Combination?
 
A:
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, VPCC will acquire Dave in a series of transactions we collectively refer to as the “
Business Combination
.” At the Closing, among other things, First Merger Sub will merge with and into Dave, with Dave continuing as the surviving corporation, and Second Merger Sub will merge with and into Dave, with Second Merger Sub continuing as the surviving company. As a result of the Mergers, at the Closing, VPCC will own 100% of the outstanding equity interests of the surviving company and each share of capital stock, as well as securities convertible or exercisable for shares of capital stock, of Dave will have been cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration in accordance with the Merger Agreement.

Q:
What conditions must be satisfied to complete the Business Combination?

Q:
What equity stake will current VPCC Public Stockholders, the PIPE Investors, the Initial Stockholders and Dave Stockholders hold in VPCC following the consummation of the Transactions?
 
A:
It is anticipated that, upon completion of the Transactions, assuming no VPCC Share Redemptions (which we refer to as the “

Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the Charter Amendment Proposal?
 
A:
The Proposed Charter that VPCC is asking its stockholders to approve in connection with the Business Combination provides for, among other things, certain amendments to VPCC’s Existing Charter. Pursuant to Delaware law and the Merger Agreement, we are required to submit the Charter Amendment Proposal to the VPCC Stockholders for adoption. See the section titled “
Proposal No. 2—The Charter Amendment Proposal
for additional information.
 
Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the Governance Proposals?
 
A:
As required by applicable SEC guidance, VPCC is requesting that its stockholders vote upon, on a
non-binding
advisory basis, eight separate proposals to approve certain governance provisions contained in the Proposed Charter that materially affect stockholder rights. This separate vote on the Governance Proposals is not otherwise required by Delaware law, but pursuant to SEC guidance, VPCC is required to submit these provisions to its stockholders separately for approval. However, the stockholder vote regarding the Governance Proposals is an advisory vote, and is not binding on VPCC or the VPCC Board, in contrast to the vote on the Charter Amendment Proposal, which will be binding on VPCC and the VPCC Board. Furthermore, the Business Combination is not conditioned on the separate approval of the Governance Proposals.
See the section titled “
Proposals No. 3A through 3H—The Governance Proposals
” for additional information.
 
Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the Director Election Proposal?
 
A:
VPCC is proposing the Director Election Proposal because the election of Jason Wilk, Brendan Carroll, Charles “Skip” Paul, Andrea Mitchell and Dan Preston to the Combined Company’s board of directors is a condition to the Closing in the Merger Agreement.
See the section titled “
Proposal
No. 4—The Director Election
Proposa
l
” for additional information.
 
Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal?
 
A:
VPCC is proposing the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal because the adoption of the 2021 Plan is a condition to the Closing in the Merger Agreement.
See the section titled “
Proposal
No. 5—The 2021 Equity Incentive Plan
Proposa

Table of Contents
Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal?
 
A:
VPCC is proposing the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal because the adoption of the Employee Stock Purchase Plan is a condition to the Closing in the Merger Agreement.
See the section titled “
Proposal
No. 6—The Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Proposa
l
” for additional information.
 
Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the Share Issuance Proposal?
 
A:
VPCC is proposing the Share Issuance Proposal in order to comply with NYSE listing rules, which require stockholder approval of certain transactions that result in the issuance of 20% or more of a company’s outstanding voting power or shares of common stock outstanding before the issuance of stock or securities. In connection with the Transactions, VPCC intends to issue (subject to customary terms and conditions, including the Closing) (i) approximately 343,445,531 shares of Combined Company Common Stock in the Business Combination in both the no redemption and maximum redemption scenarios (6,000,000 of which would immediately be repurchased by VPCC in the no redemption scenario pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement) (which amount does not include the shares underlying the Rollover Options) and (ii) 21,000,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock in the PIPE Investment, plus any additional shares pursuant to subscription agreements VPCC may enter into prior to Closing. Because VPCC will issue 20% or more of its outstanding voting power and outstanding common stock in connection with the Transactions, it is required to obtain stockholder approval of such issuances pursuant to NYSE listing rules. Stockholder approval of the Share Issuance Proposal is also a condition to the Closing in the Merger Agreement. See the section titled “
Proposal No.
 7
—The Share Issuance Proposal
” for additional information.
 
Q:
Why is VPCC proposing the Repurchase Proposal?
 
A:
VPCC is proposing the Repurchase Proposal because the approval of the Repurchase is a condition to the Closing in the Merger Agreement.
See the section titled “
Proposal
No. 8—The Repurchase
Proposa
l
” for additional information.
 
Q:
What happens if I sell my shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock before the Special Meeting?
 
A:
The record date for the Special Meeting is earlier than the date that the Business Combination is expected to be completed. If you transfer your shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock after the record date, but before the Special Meeting, unless the transferee obtains from you a proxy to vote those shares, you will retain your right to vote at the Special Meeting. However, you will not be able to seek redemption of your shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock because you will no longer be able to deliver them for cancellation upon the Closing in accordance with the provisions described herein. If you transfer your shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock prior to the record date, you will have no right to vote those shares at the Special Meeting or redeem those shares for a
pro rata
portion of the proceeds held in the Trust Account.
 
Q:
What vote is required to approve the Proposals presented at the Special Meeting?
 
A:
Approval of each of the Business Combination Proposal, the Governance Proposals (on an advisory basis), the Share Issuance Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Repurchase Proposal and the Adjournment Proposal, requires the affirmative vote (in person or by proxy) of the holders of the majority of the outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock entitled to vote and actually cast thereon at the Special Meeting, voting as a single class. Approval of the Charter Amendment Proposal requires the affirmative vote (in person or by proxy) of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock entitled to vote thereon at the Special Meeting, voting as a single class. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by holders of the outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock represented in person or by proxy at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon. This means that the five director nominees who receive the most affirmative votes will be elected. Stockholders may not cumulate their votes with respect to the election of directors.

Q:
May our Sponsor, directors, officers, advisors or their affiliates purchase shares in connection with the Business Combination?
 
A:
In connection with the stockholder vote to approve the proposed Business Combination, our Sponsor, directors, officers, or advisors or their respective affiliates may privately negotiate transactions to purchase shares from stockholders who would have otherwise elected to have their shares redeemed in conjunction with a proxy solicitation pursuant to the proxy rules for a per share
pro rata
portion of the Trust Account. None of our Sponsor, directors, officers or advisors or their respective affiliates will make any such purchases when they are in possession of any material
non-public
information not disclosed to the other VPCC Stockholders. Such a purchase would include a contractual acknowledgement that such stockholder, although still the record holder of our shares, is no longer the beneficial owner thereof and therefore agrees not to exercise its redemption rights, and could include a contractual provision that directs such stockholder to vote such shares in a manner directed by the purchaser. In the event that our Sponsor, directors, officers or advisors or their affiliates purchase shares in privately negotiated transactions from Public Stockholders who have already elected to exercise their redemption rights, such selling stockholders would be required to revoke their prior elections to redeem their shares. Any such privately negotiated purchases may be effected at purchase prices that are below or in excess of the per share
pro rata
portion of the Trust Account.
 
Q:
How many votes do I have at the Special Meeting?
 
A:
VPCC Stockholders are entitled to one vote at the Special Meeting for each share of VPCC Class A Common Stock or VPCC Class B Common Stock held of record as of November 12, 2021, the record date for the Special Meeting. As of the close of business on the record date, there were a combined 31,720,748 outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock.
 
Q:
What constitutes a quorum at the Special Meeting?
 
A:
Holders of a majority in voting power of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting, present in person or represented by proxy, constitute a quorum. In the absence of a quorum, the chairman of the meeting has the power to adjourn the Special Meeting. As of the record date for the Special Meeting, 31,720,748 shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock, in the aggregate, would be required to achieve a quorum.
 
Q:
How will VPCC’s Sponsor, directors and officers vote?
 
A:
In connection with our IPO, we entered into an agreement with our Sponsor and each of VPCC’s directors and officers, pursuant to which each agreed to vote any shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock owned by them in favor of the Business Combination Proposal. Concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, Dave, VPCC, the Sponsor, the Current Independent Directors, and the other directors and officers of VPCC entered into the Founder Holder Agreement pursuant to which, among other things, the Sponsor and the Current Independent Directors, in their capacity as holders of VPCC Class B Common Stock and/or VPCC Class A Common Stock, agreed to support the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including agreeing to vote in favor of the adoption of the Merger Agreement at the Special Meeting. Currently, our Sponsor and the Current Independent Directors collectively own approximately 20.0% of our issued and outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock, in the aggregate, including all of the Founder Shares.
 
Q:
What interests do the current officers and directors have in the Business Combination?
 
A:
In considering the recommendation of the VPCC Board to vote in favor of the Business Combination, stockholders should be aware that, aside from their interests as stockholders, our Sponsor and certain of
 
8

Table of Contents
  VPCC’s directors and officers have interests in the Business Combination that are different from, or in addition to, those of other stockholders generally. These interests include the following, among others:
 
   
If we do not consummate a business combination by March 9, 2023 (or if such date is extended at a duly called meeting of the VPCC Stockholders, such later date), we would: (1) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up; (2) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten(10) business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest (which interest shall be net of taxes payable, and less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public Stockholders’ rights as VPCC Stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any); and (3) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of our remaining VPCC Stockholders and the VPCC Board, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to our obligations under Delaware law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law. In such event, the 6,284,150 shares of VPCC Class B Common Stock owned by our Sponsor and the 60,000 shares of VPCC Class B Common Stock owned by the Current Independent Directors would be worthless because following the redemption of the Public Shares, we would likely have few, if any, net assets and because the Sponsor and each of VPCC’s officers and directors have agreed to waive their rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to such shares if we fail to complete a business combination within the required period. Additionally, in such event, the 5,100,214 Private Placement Warrants that the Sponsor paid $7,650,321 for will expire worthless. All of VPCC’s officers and directors have a direct or indirect economic interest in such shares. The 6,344,150 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock that the Initial Stockholders and their permitted transferees will hold following the Business Combination (assuming the no redemption scenario), if unrestricted and freely tradable, would have had aggregate market value of approximately $63,441,500.00 based upon the closing price of $10.00 per share of VPCC Class A Common Stock on the NYSE on November 23, 2021, the most recent practicable date prior to the date of this proxy statement/prospectus. Given such shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock will be subject to certain restrictions, we believe such shares have less value. The 5,100,214 Private Placement Warrants that the Sponsor will hold following the Business Combination, if unrestricted and freely tradable, would have had an aggregate market value of approximately $8,313,348.82 based upon the closing price of $1.63 per warrant on the NYSE on November 23, 2021, the most recent practicable date prior to the date of this proxy statement/prospectus.
 
   
The VPCC Funds
entered into a financing agreement with Dave on January 27, 2021 (the “
Existing Financing Agreement
”), pursuant to which, among other things, such VPCC Funds have provided Dave with a $100 million delayed draw credit facility in order to finance future growth of Dave’s advance portfolio and accelerate growth of certain of Dave’s products through marketing initiatives. The amounts drawn under the Existing Financing Agreement generally accrue an interest rate equal to the sum of (i) 2.55% per annum (or the London Interbank Offered Rate last quoted by the Wall Street Journal for desposits of U.S. Dollars for a period of three months on the last business day of each calendar month, whichever is higher) plus (ii) 6.95% per annum on the portion of the outstanding balance of amounts drawn that is less than or equal to $50 million, plus (iii) 5.95% per annum on the portion of the outstanding balance of amounts drawn that is greater than $50 million and less than or equal to $75 million, plus (iv) 5.45% per annum on the portion of the outstanding balance of amounts drawn that is greater than $75 million. The Existing Financing Agreement also includes, among other terms, representations and warranties on behalf Dave and its subsidiaries, rights of such VPCC Funds in the event of certain specified events of defaults, provisions regarding repayment of outstanding amounts drawn, and prohibitions on certain actions by Dave and its subsidiaries. As of September 30, 2021, $30 million has been drawn by Dave under the Existing Financing Agreement. The parties anticipate that the Existing Financing Agreement will remain in place following the Closing of the Business Combination, and as such VPCC Funds will be creditors of Dave following the consummation of the Business Combination.

Table of Contents
   
The VPCC Funds hold Dave Warrants that represent the right to purchase approximately 1.0% of the fully diluted equity of Dave, in the aggregate if all such Dave Warrants vest. Such Dave Warrants vest in increments equal to approximately 0.2% of the fully diluted equity of Dave for each $10 million funded by such VPCC Funds to Dave under the Existing Financing Agreement, with all such Dave Warrants vesting at such time as $50 million has been funded by such VPCC Funds under the Existing Financing Agreement. Once vested, the Dave Warrants may be exercised at any time prior to the earlier of (x) the fifth anniversary of the occurrence of Dave’s next equity financing in which Dave issues and sells shares of capital stock or securities yielding total equity proceeds to Dave of not less than $40 million (a “
qualified financing event
”) and (y) the occurrence of a liquidity event of Dave, which is broadly defined and includes a transaction or series of related transactions whereby a special acquisition company merges with or acquires equity interests of Dave (or any surviving or resulting company) and which transaction results in Dave (or any surviving or resulting company into which Dave is merged, consolidated, reorganized or combined), or any parent company that directly or indirectly beneficially owns Dave, being listed on a U.S. national securities exchange or market (a “
liquidity event
”). Such Dave Warrants are exercisable for a per share exercise price equal to (x) in the event such Dave Warrants are exercised in connection with or following a qualified financing event, the lowest price per share paid by a cash investor in connection with such qualified financing event or (y) in the event such Dave Warrants are exercised in connection with a liquidity event, the greater of (i) 80% of the fair market value of each share of common stock of Dave and (ii) approximately $3.75 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock combinations, etc.). Immediately prior to the Closing, it is anticipated that vested Dave Warrants held by VPCC Funds, which are exercisable in respect of a maximum of 1,668,776 shares of Series B-1 preferred stock of Dave, will be exercised and net settled without cash in exchange for 333,751 shares of Series B-1 preferred stock of Dave and, upon closing, after application the exchange ratio of 1.354431 shares of Combined Company Common Stock for each share of Dave Stock, 452,041 shares of Class A Common Stock of the Combined Company. In the event that the amount of VPCC Available Cash at the Closing is equal to or exceeds $300 million, in lieu of receipt of such shares of Class A Common Stock, the VPCC Funds holding such Dave Warrants shall have the option to receive cash settlement payments from Dave in full settlement of their respective Dave Warrants for an aggregate amount of up to $4,520,410, which represents 452,041 shares of Class A Common Stock and a price of $10.00 per share. All unvested Dave Warrants shall terminate in accordance with their terms and the terms of the Merger Agreement.
 
   
Our Sponsor and the Current Independent Directors have agreed not to redeem any of the Founder Shares or shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock held by them in connection with a stockholder vote to approve the Business Combination.
 
   
Our Sponsor paid an aggregate of $25,000 for its Founder Shares and such securities will have a significantly higher value at the time of the Business Combination, which, if unrestricted and freely tradable would be valued at approximately $63,441,500.00, based on the closing price of the VPCC Class A Common Stock on November 23, 2021 (assuming the no redemption scenario).
 
   
If the Trust Account is liquidated, including in the event we are unable to complete an initial business combination within the required time period, our Sponsor has agreed to indemnify us to ensure that the proceeds in the Trust Account are not reduced below $10.00 per Public Share, or such lesser amount per Public Share as is in the Trust Account on the liquidation date, by the claims of prospective target businesses with which we have entered into an acquisition agreement or claims of any third party for services rendered or products sold to us, but only if such a vendor or target business has not executed a waiver of any and all rights to seek access to the Trust Account.
 
   
the continuation of Brendan Carroll, one of our existing directors, as a director of the Combined Company following the Closing.
 
   
Our officers were not permitted to become a director or officer of any other blank check company until we entered into a definitive agreement regarding an initial business combination.
 
   
Our Sponsor and the Current Independent Directors will lose their entire investment in us if an initial business combination is not completed.

Table of Contents
   
Our Sponsor will benefit from the completion of a business combination and may be incentivized to complete an acquisition of a less favorable target company or on terms less favorable to stockholders rather than liquidate.
 
   
Our existing officers and directors will be eligible for continued indemnification and continued coverage under a directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy after the Business Combination.
 
   
We will enter into the Investor Rights Agreement with our Sponsor and certain existing holder(s) of our capital stock (including the Founder Holders) and certain Dave Stockholders, which provides for registration rights to such parties.
 
   
In connection with the Closing, our Sponsor would be entitled to the repayment of any working capital loan and advances that have been made to VPCC and remain outstanding. As of the date of this proxy statement/prospectus, our Sponsor has not made any advances to us for working capital expenses. If we do not complete an initial business combination within the required period, we may use a portion of our working capital held outside the Trust Account to repay the working capital loans, but no proceeds held in the Trust Account would be used to repay the working capital loans.
 
   
Upon the Closing, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, our Sponsor, our officers and directors and their respective affiliates may be entitled to reimbursement for any reasonable out-of-pocket expenses related to identifying, investigating and consummating an initial business combination, and repayment of any other loans, if any, and on such terms as to be determined by VPCC from time to time, made by our Sponsor or certain of our officers and directors to finance transaction costs in connection with an intended initial business combination. Such reimbursable out-of-pocket expenses, if any, are not expected to be material.
VPCC’s directors were aware of and considered these interests, among other matters, in evaluating the Business Combination, and in recommending to stockholders that they approve the Business Combination. Stockholders should take these interests into account in deciding whether to approve the Business Combination. For more information, see the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement—Interests of Certain VPCC Persons in the Business Combination
.”
 
Q:
What happens if I vote against the Business Combination Proposal?
 
A:
Under VPCC’s Existing Charter, if the Business Combination Proposal is not approved and we do not otherwise consummate an alternative business combination by March 9, 2023, we will be required to dissolve and liquidate the Trust Account by returning the then-remaining funds in such account to our Public Stockholders.
 
Q:
Do I have redemption rights?
 
A:
If you are a holder of Public Shares, you may elect to have your Public Shares redeemed for cash at the applicable redemption price per share equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (a) the aggregate amount on deposit in the Trust Account as of two (2) business days prior to the Closing, including interest not previously released to VPCC to pay its taxes, by (b) the total number of then outstanding Public Shares; provided that VPCC will not redeem any Public Shares to the extent that such redemption would result in VPCC’s net tangible assets (as determined in accordance with Rule
3a51-1(g)(1)
of the Exchange Act) being less than $5,000,001. The redemption rights include the requirement that a holder must identify itself in writing as a beneficial holder and provide its legal name, phone number and address to the transfer agent in order to validly redeem its shares. A Public Stockholder, together with any of his, her or its affiliates or any other person with whom it is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined under Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act), will be restricted from redeeming in the aggregate his, her or its shares or, if part of such a group, the group’s shares, in excess of 15% of the Public Shares (the “
15% threshold
”). Unlike some other blank check companies, other than the net tangible asset requirement and the 15% threshold described above, VPCC has no specified maximum redemption threshold and there is no other limit on the amount of Public Shares that you can redeem. Holders of VPCC’s outstanding Public Warrants do not have redemption rights in connection with the Business Combination. VPCC’s Sponsor, directors and officers have agreed to
 
11

Table of Contents
  waive their redemption rights with respect to any shares of VPCC’s capital stock they may hold in connection with the Closing, and the Founder Shares will be excluded from the
pro rata
calculation used to determine the per share redemption price. For illustrative purposes, based on the fair value of marketable securities held in the Trust Account as of September 30, 2021 of approximately $253,782,145.56, the estimated per share redemption price would have been approximately $10.00. Additionally, shares properly tendered for redemption will only be redeemed if the Business Combination is consummated; otherwise holders of such shares will only be entitled to a
pro rata
portion of the Trust Account (including interest but net of taxes payable) in connection with the liquidation of the Trust Account or if we subsequently complete a different business combination on or prior to March 9, 2023.
 
Q:
Will how I vote affect my ability to exercise redemption rights?
 
A:
No. You may exercise your redemption rights whether you vote your shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock for or against or abstain from voting on the Business Combination Proposal or any other proposal described in this proxy statement/prospectus. As a result, the Business Combination can be approved by stockholders who will redeem their shares and no longer remain stockholders.
 
Q:
How do I exercise my redemption rights?
 
A:
In order to exercise your redemption rights, you must (i) if you hold your shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock through units, elect to separate your units into the underlying Public Shares and Public Warrants prior to exercising your redemption rights with respect to the Public Shares, (ii) check the box on the enclosed proxy card marked “Stockholder Certification,” (iii) identify yourself in writing as a beneficial holder and provide your legal name, phone number and address to the transfer agent and (iv) prior to 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on [●], 2021 (two (2) business days before the Special Meeting), tender your shares physically or electronically and submit a request in writing that we redeem your Public Shares for cash to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, our transfer agent, at the following address:
Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company
1 State Street Plaza, 30
th
Floor
New York, New York 10004
Attention: Mark Zimkind
Email: mzimkind@continentalstock.com
Please check the box on the enclosed proxy card marked “Stockholder Certification” if you are not acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) with any other stockholder with respect to shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock or VPCC Class B Common Stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Public Stockholder, together with any of his, her or its affiliates or any other person with whom it is acting in concert or as a “group” (as defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act), will be restricted from seeking redemption rights with respect to his, her or its shares or, if part of such a group, the group’s shares, in excess of the 15% threshold. Accordingly, all Public Shares in excess of the 15% threshold beneficially owned by a Public Stockholder or group will not be redeemed for cash. Stockholders seeking to exercise their redemption rights and opting to deliver physical certificates should allot sufficient time to obtain physical certificates from Continental and time to effect delivery. It is VPCC’s understanding that stockholders should generally allot at least two weeks to obtain physical certificates from Continental. However, VPCC does not have any control over this process and it may take longer than two weeks. Stockholders who hold their shares in street name will have to coordinate with their bank, broker or other nominee to have the shares certificated or delivered electronically.
Holders of outstanding units of VPCC must separate the underlying Public Shares and Public Warrants prior to exercising redemption rights with respect to the Public Shares. If you hold Units registered in your own name, you must deliver the certificate for such Units to Continental with written instructions to separate such Units into Public Shares and Public Warrants. This must be completed far enough in advance to permit the mailing of the Public Share certificates back to you so that you may then exercise your redemption rights upon the separation of the Public Shares from the Units.

Table of Contents
If a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee holds your Units, you must instruct such nominee to separate your Units. Your nominee must send written instructions by facsimile to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company. Such written instructions must include the number of Units to be split and the nominee holding such Units. Your nominee must also initiate electronically, using The Depository Trust Company’s (“
DTC
”) DWAC (deposit withdrawal at custodian) system, a withdrawal of the relevant Units and a deposit of an equal number of Public Shares and Public Warrants. This must be completed far enough in advance to permit your nominee to exercise your redemption rights upon the separation of the Public Shares from the Units. While this is typically done electronically on the same business day, you should allow at least one full business day to accomplish the separation. If you fail to cause your Public Shares to be separated in a timely manner, you will likely not be able to exercise your redemption rights.
Any demand for redemption, once made, may be withdrawn at any time until the deadline for exercising redemption requests and thereafter, with our consent, until the vote is taken with respect to the Business Combination. If you delivered your Public Shares for redemption to Continental and decide within the required timeframe not to exercise your redemption rights, you may request that Continental return the Public Shares (physically or electronically). You may make such request by contacting Continental at the phone number or address listed under the question “Who can help answer my questions?” below.
 
Q:
What are the U.S. federal income tax consequences of exercising my redemption rights?
 
A:
We expect that a U.S. holder (as defined below) that exercises its redemption rights to receive cash from the Trust Account in exchange for its Public Shares will generally be treated as selling such Public Shares resulting in the recognition of capital gain or capital loss. There may be certain circumstances in which the redemption may be treated as a distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes depending on the amount of Public Shares that a U.S. holder owns or is deemed to own (including through the ownership of Public Warrants). For a more complete discussion of the U.S. federal income tax considerations of an exercise of redemption rights, see “
Material United
 States Federal Income Tax Considerations
.”
TAX MATTERS ARE COMPLICATED, AND THE TAX CONSEQUENCES OF EXERCISING YOUR REDEMPTION RIGHTS WILL DEPEND ON THE FACTS OF YOUR OWN SITUATION. YOU SHOULD CONSULT YOUR OWN TAX ADVISOR AS TO THE SPECIFIC TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE EXERCISE OF REDEMPTION RIGHTS TO YOU IN YOUR PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCES.
 
Q:
What are the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Mergers to holders of VPCC Class A Common Stock?
 
A:
The holders of VPCC Class A Common Stock will incur no U.S. federal income tax consequences as a result of the Mergers.
 
Q:
What are the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Mergers to holders of Dave Capital Stock that are United States Persons?
 
A:
Dave and VPCC intend for the Mergers to qualify as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code. Assuming that the Mergers qualify as a reorganization, a holder of Dave Capital Stock that is a United States Person that receives Combined Company Class A Common Stock or Combined Company Class V Common Stock in exchange for its Dave Class A Common Stock or Dave Class V Common Stock in the Mergers generally will not recognize gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes. However, there are many requirements that must be satisfied in order for the Mergers to qualify as a reorganization, some of which are based upon factual determinations. Neither Dave nor VPCC has requested or received a ruling from the IRS or requested a closing tax opinion of counsel that the Mergers will qualify as a reorganization. If it is determined that the Mergers are not treated as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the code, the exchange of Dave Common Stock for Combined Company Class A Common Stock or Combined Company Class V Common Stock in the Mergers will be a fully taxable transaction. For a summary of the material U.S. federal income tax considerations of the Mergers to

Q:
If I am a warrant holder, can I exercise redemption rights with respect to my warrants?
 
A:
No. The holders of our warrants have no redemption rights with respect to our warrants.
 
Q:
Do I have appraisal rights if I object to the proposed Business Combination?
 
A:
No. There are no appraisal rights available to holders of VPCC Class A Common Stock or VPCC Class B Common Stock in connection with the Business Combination.
 
Q:
What happens to the funds deposited in the Trust Account after the Closing?
 
A:
If the Business Combination Proposal is approved, VPCC intends to use a portion of the funds held in the Trust Account (i) to pay to Public Stockholders who have properly elected to have their VPCC Class A Common Stock redeemed for cash in accordance with the provisions of VPCC’s governing documents; (ii) for income tax or other tax obligations of VPCC prior to Closing; (iii) to pay to the underwriters of the initial public offering of VPCC with respect to any deferred underwriting compensation, (iv) for any unpaid VPCC or Dave transaction costs; and (v) for repayment of loans and reimbursement of expenses to directors, officers and stockholders of VPCC. The remaining balance in the Trust Account, together with proceeds received from the PIPE Investment and any proceeds received from the sale of additional shares pursuant to subscription agreements that VPCC may enter into prior to Closing that are not used to satisfy VPCC’s obligations in connection with the Business Combination, will be used by the Combined Company for working capital purposes. See the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement
” for additional information.
 
Q:
What happens if the Business Combination is not consummated or is terminated?
 
A:
There are certain circumstances under which the Merger Agreement may be terminated. See the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement—The Merger Agreement—Termination
” for additional information regarding the parties’ specific termination rights. In accordance with the Existing Charter, if an initial business combination is not consummated by March 9, 2023, VPCC will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten (10) business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem 100% of the Public Shares in consideration of a per share price, payable in cash, equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to VPCC to pay its taxes (less up to $100,000 of such net interest to pay dissolution expenses), by (B) the total number of then outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish rights of the Public Stockholders as stockholders of VPCC (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholders and the VPCC Board, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to our obligations under the DGCL to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.
VPCC expects that the amount of any distribution its Public Stockholders will be entitled to receive upon its dissolution will be approximately the same as the amount they would have received if they had redeemed their shares in connection with the Business Combination, subject in each case to VPCC’s obligations under the DGCL to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law. As set forth in the Founder Holder Agreement, the Initial Stockholders have waived any right to any liquidating distributions with respect to the Founder Shares to which they would otherwise be entitled pursuant to the terms of Section 4.3(b)(ii) of VPCC’s Existing Charter.
 
14

Table of Contents
In the event of liquidation, there will be no distribution with respect to the outstanding VPCC Warrants. Accordingly, the VPCC Warrants will expire worthless.
 
Q:
When is the Business Combination expected to be consummated?
 
A:
It is currently anticipated that the Business Combination will be consummated promptly following the Special Meeting; provided that all the requisite stockholder approvals are obtained and other conditions to the Closing have been satisfied or waived. For a description of the conditions for the Closing, see the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement—The Merger Agreement—Conditions to the Completion of the Mergers.
 
Q:
What do I need to do now?
 
A:
You are urged to read carefully and consider the information contained in this proxy statement/prospectus, including “
Risk Factors
” and the annexes, and to consider how the Business Combination will affect you as a stockholder. You should then vote as soon as possible in accordance with the instructions provided in this proxy statement/prospectus and on the enclosed proxy card or, if you hold your shares through a brokerage firm, bank or other nominee, on the voting instruction form provided by the broker, bank or nominee.
 
Q:
How do I vote?
 
A:
If you were a holder of record of VPCC Class A Common Stock or VPCC Class B Common Stock on November 12, 2021, the record date for the Special Meeting, you may vote with respect to the proposals in person at the Special Meeting or by completing, signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided. If you hold your shares in “street name,” which means your shares are held of record by a broker, bank or other nominee, you should follow the instructions provided by your broker, bank or nominee to ensure that votes related to the shares you beneficially own are properly counted. In this regard, you must provide the record holder of your shares with instructions on how to vote your shares or, if you wish to attend the Special Meeting and vote in person, obtain a proxy from your broker, bank or nominee.
 
Q:
What will happen if I abstain from voting or fail to vote at the Special Meeting?
 
A:
At the Special Meeting, VPCC will count a properly executed proxy marked “ABSTAIN” with respect to a particular proposal as present for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present. For purposes of approval, assuming a valid quorum is otherwise established, failure to vote or an abstention will have no effect on the Business Combination Proposal, the Governance Proposals, the Share Issuance Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Repurchase Proposal and the Adjournment Proposal, but will have the same effect as a vote AGAINST the Charter Amendment Proposal.
 
Q:
What will happen if I sign and submit my proxy card without indicating how I wish to vote?
 
A:
Signed and dated proxies received by VPCC without an indication of how the stockholder intends to vote on a proposal will be voted “FOR” each proposal presented to the stockholders.
 
Q:
If I am not going to attend the Special Meeting in person, should I submit my proxy card instead?
 
A:
Yes. Whether you plan to attend the Special Meeting or not, please read the enclosed proxy statement/prospectus carefully, and vote your shares by completing, signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided.
 
Q:
If my shares are held in “street name,” will my broker, bank or nominee automatically vote my shares for me?
 
A:
No. Under the rules of various national and regional securities exchanges, your broker, bank, or nominee cannot vote your shares with respect to
non-discretionary
matters unless you provide instructions on how to
 
15

Table of Contents
  vote in accordance with the information and procedures provided to you by your broker, bank, or nominee. VPCC believes that each of the proposals presented to the stockholders will be considered
non-discretionary
and therefore your broker, bank, or nominee cannot vote your shares without your instruction. Your bank, broker, or other nominee can vote your shares only if you provide instructions on how to vote. You should instruct your broker to vote your shares in accordance with directions you provide.
 
Q:
May I change my vote after I have submitted my executed proxy card?
 
A:
Yes. You may change your vote by sending a later-dated, signed proxy card to VPCC’s secretary at the address listed below so that it is received by VPCC’s secretary prior to the Special Meeting or attend the Special Meeting in person and vote. You also may revoke your proxy by sending a notice of revocation to VPCC’s secretary, which must be received prior to the Special Meeting.
 
Q:
What should I do if I receive more than one set of voting materials?
 
A:
You may receive more than one set of voting materials, including multiple copies of this proxy statement/prospectus and multiple proxy cards or voting instruction cards. For example, if you hold your shares in more than one brokerage account, you will receive a separate voting instruction card for each brokerage account in which you hold shares. If you are a holder of record and your shares are registered in more than one name, you will receive more than one proxy card. Please complete, sign, date and return each proxy card and voting instruction card that you receive in order to cast your vote with respect to all of your shares.

Recapitalization
Prior to the Closing, Dave will cause (the following transactions collectively referred to in this proxy statement/prospectus as the “
Recapitalization
”):
 
   
each share of Dave Preferred Stock that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time to automatically convert into a number of shares of Dave Common Stock, at their respective conversion ratio;
 
   
a dual-class Dave Common Stock structure to be implemented consisting of (x) Class A common stock, par value $0.00001 per share, with respect to which each holder thereof has one (1) vote per share on each matter subject to the vote of the Dave Stockholders, and (y) Class V common stock, par value $0.00001 per share, with respect to which each holder thereof has ten (10) votes per share on each matter subject to the vote of the Dave Stockholders;
 
   
each authorized share of the Dave Common Stock to automatically convert, effective as of the Recapitalization, into a share of Dave Class A Common Stock; and
 
   
immediately thereafter, each share of Dave Class A Common Stock held by Jason Wilk, the Chief Executive Officer and
Co-Founder
of Dave, as of immediately prior to the consummation of the Recapitalization to be exchanged or converted into one (1) share of Dave Class V Common Stock. For more information about the consideration to the holders of Dave equity interests (and convertible securities), please see the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement
—The Merger Agreement
—Recapitalization
.”
Merger Consideration
The Dave Stockholders (including holders of Dave Restricted Stock) and holders of vested Dave Options will receive aggregate merger consideration with an implied value of $3,500,000,000 (the “
Equity Value
”), consisting of a number of shares of Combined Company Common Stock, with each deemed to have a value of $10.00 per share, equal to the Equity Value
divided by
$10.00 (such aggregate merger consideration, the “
Aggregate Stock Consideration
”).
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time (and following the Recapitalization), (a) each share of Dave Class A Common Stock held by the Dave Stockholders will be cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive a number of shares of newly issued Class A common stock of the Combined Company, par value $0.0001 (“
Combined Company Class
 A Common Stock
”), equal to an exchange ratio (the “
Per Share Dave Stock Consideration
”) determined by dividing the Aggregate Stock Consideration by the sum of (without duplication): (i) the aggregate number of shares of Dave Stock outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and following the consummation of the Recapitalization (including all shares of Dave Restricted Stock, whether vested or unvested); (ii) the aggregate number of shares of Dave Stock that are issuable upon the exercise or settlement of all Dave Options and Dave
Non-Plan
Options (in each case, as defined below) that are unexpired, issued, outstanding and vested as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (assuming, for purposes of this calculation, that all such Dave Options and Dave
Non-Plan
Options are exercised on a net exercise basis based on the assumption, solely for purposes of this calculation, that the fair market value of each share underlying such Dave Options or Dave
Non-Plan
Options equals (x) the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration multiplied by (y) ten dollars ($10.00)); and (iii) the aggregate number of shares of Dave Stock that are issuable upon the exercise or settlement of all Dave Warrants that are unexpired, issued, outstanding and vested as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (assuming, for purposes of this calculation, that all such Dave Warrants are vested and exercised on a net exercise basis based on the assumption, solely for purposes of this calculation, that the fair market value of each share underlying such Dave Warrants equals the (x) Per Share Dave Stock Consideration multiplied by (y) ten dollars ($10.00)) (the “
Dave Stock Adjusted Fully Diluted Shares
”) and (b) each share of Dave Class V Common Stock held by the Dave Stockholders will be cancelled and
 
21

Table of Contents
automatically converted into the right to receive a number of shares of newly authorized and issued Class V common stock of the Combined Company, par value $0.0001 (“
Combined Company Class
 V Common Stock
” and together with the Combined Company Class A Common Stock, “
Combined Company Common Stock
”), equal to the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration.
Each option to purchase shares of capital stock of Dave (“
Dave Option
”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) (other than certain options to purchase shares of capital stock of Dave granted outside of the terms and conditions of Dave’s stock plans (“
Dave
Non-Plan
Options
”)) will be automatically assumed by VPCC and converted into an option to acquire an adjusted number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock (pursuant to a ratio based on the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration) (each such resulting option, a “
Rollover Option
”) at an adjusted exercise price per share and will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting and exercisability terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Dave Option, except to the extent such terms or conditions are rendered inoperative by the Transactions or such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as the parties to the Merger Agreement may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Options. The shares of Dave Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Dave Options that are outstanding, unexercised and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time (such options, the “
Unvested Dave Options
”) are not included in the calculation of the “
Dave Stock Adjusted Fully Diluted
Shares
” for purposes of the calculation of the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration, and the shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Rollover Options representing at the Effective Time Unvested Dave Options (such shares, “
Unvested Rollover Option Shares
”) are not considered a part of the Aggregate Stock Consideration. The Unvested Rollover Option Shares will reduce the shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock initially available for issuance under the new equity incentive plan that VPCC will adopt as of the Closing.
Each Dave
Non-Plan
Option that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically cancelled for no consideration.
Each award of Dave Restricted Stock that is outstanding and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically assumed by VPCC and converted into an award of restricted stock with respect to an adjusted number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock (pursuant to a ratio based on the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration) (the “
Rollover Restricted Stock
”) and will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Dave Restricted Stock, except to the extent such terms or conditions are rendered inoperative by the Transactions or such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as the parties to the Merger Agreement may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Restricted Stock.
Each warrant to purchase shares of capital stock of Dave (“
Dave Warrants
”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically terminated in accordance with the terms of the applicable Dave Warrant and be of no further force or effect as of the Effective Time.
In addition, pursuant to Subscription Agreements that VPCC entered into with certain investors substantially concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, immediately prior to the consummation of the Mergers, such investors will purchase an aggregate of 21,000,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock for $10.00 per share. On August 17, 2021, one of the PIPE Investors entered into an amendment to the Subscription Agreement to allow the PIPE Investor to pre-fund its $15,000,000 obligation under the Subscription Agreement in exchange for a promissory note in the principal amount of $15,000,000 convertible into 1,500,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock at Closing.
It is anticipated that following the Closing: (a) the Public Stockholders are expected to own approximately 6.5% of the outstanding Combined Company Common Stock and hold approximately 2.5% of the voting power; (b) Dave Stockholders are expected to own approximately 86.5% of the outstanding Combined Company

The Repurchase is contingent on the amount of cash in the Trust Account at the Closing, following payments of all amounts required to satisfy VPCC Share Redemptions, plus the PIPE Investment Amount (and the amount of any alternative financing arranged by VPCC and Dave, including in the event any portion of the PIPE Investment Amount becomes unavailable), plus the amount of cash available to VPCC outside of the Trust Account,

Quorum and Required Vote for Proposals for the Special Meeting
A quorum of outstanding shares of VPCC Common Stock is necessary to hold a valid meeting. A quorum will be present at the Special Meeting if a majority of the VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting is represented in person or by proxy. Abstentions will count as present for the purposes of establishing a quorum.
The Business Combination Proposal, the Governance Proposals (on an advisory basis), the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal, the Repurchase Proposal and the Adjournment Proposal require the affirmative vote of holders of a majority of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock represented in person or by proxy and entitled to vote thereon and actually cast at the Special Meeting, voting as a single class. Approval of the Charter Amendment Proposal,
 
28

Table of Contents
requires the affirmative vote (in person or by proxy) of the holders of a majority of outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock entitled to vote thereon at the Special Meeting, voting as a single class. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by holders of the outstanding shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock and VPCC Class B Common Stock, voting as a single class. This means that the five director nominees who receive the most affirmative votes will be elected. Stockholders may not cumulate their votes with respect to the election of directors. Accordingly, if a valid quorum is otherwise established, a stockholder’s failure to vote by proxy or to vote in person at the Special Meeting will have no effect on the outcome of any vote on the Business Combination Proposal, the Governance Proposals, the Director Election Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Repurchase Proposal or the Adjournment Proposal, but will have the same effect as a vote AGAINST the Charter Amendment Proposal.
The Closing is conditioned on the approval of the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal at the Special Meeting. Each of the Business Combination Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Director Election Proposal, the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan Proposal, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, the Share Issuance Proposal and the Repurchase Proposal are cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. The Governance Proposals and the Adjournment Proposal are not conditioned on the approval of any of the other Proposals.
Recommendation of the VPCC Board of Directors
After careful consideration, the VPCC Board has unanimously determined (i) that the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby are advisable and in the best interests of VPCC and its stockholders and (ii) to recommend that the VPCC Stockholders adopt the Merger Agreement and approve the Business Combination and the Transactions. Accordingly, the VPCC Board recommends that the VPCC Stockholders vote “
FOR
” adoption of the Merger Agreement and approval of the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Business Combination, and “
FOR
” all other proposals presented to the VPCC Stockholders in this proxy statement/prospectus.
For a more complete description of the VPCC Board’s reasons for the approval of the Business Combination and the recommendation of the VPCC Board, see the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement—VPCC’s Board of Directors’ Reasons for the Approval of the Business Combination
.”
Interests of Certain Persons in the Business Combination
In considering the recommendation of the VPCC Board to vote in favor of the Business Combination, stockholders should be aware that, aside from their interests as stockholders, our Sponsor and certain of VPCC’s directors and officers have interests in the Business Combination that are different from, or in addition to, those of other stockholders generally. VPCC’s directors were aware of and considered these interests, among other matters, in evaluating the Business Combination, and in recommending to stockholders that they approve the Business Combination. Stockholders should take these interests into account in deciding whether to approve the Business Combination. See the sections titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement — Interests
of Certain VPCC Persons in the Business Combination
” and “
VPCC Special Meeting of Stockholders — Recommendation to VPCC Stockholders
” for more information.
VPCC’s Board of Directors’ Reasons for the Approval of the Business Combination
In considering the Business Combination, the VPCC Board considered the following factors, although not weighted or in any order of significance:
 
   
Public research on the industry of fintech companies that offer apps, software and other technologies to streamline mobile and online banking, sometimes referred to as the “neobank industry” and related
 
29

Table of Contents
 
industries, its prospects, a review of Dave’s historical financial performance and forecasts including revenues, sale projections, capital expenditures, cash flow and other relevant financial and operating metrics;
 
   
Conference call meetings with Dave’s management team and representatives regarding operations, company products and services, intellectual property, end market industries, total available market for each industry and growth prospects, among other customary due diligence matters;
 
   
Review of Dave’s material business contracts, corporate books and records, government regulations and filings, intellectual property and information technology and certain other legal due diligence;
 
   
Financial and accounting due diligence; and
 
   
The prospective financial information of Dave set forth in the materials provided by Dave.
After careful consideration, the VPCC Board recommends that its stockholders vote “FOR” each proposal being submitted to a vote at the Special Meeting. For more information about the VPCC Board’s decision-making process, please see the section titled “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement—VPCC’s Board of Directors’ Reasons for the Approval of the Business Combination
.”
Redemption Rights
Under VPCC’s Existing Charter, any holder of VPCC Class A Common Stock may elect that such shares be redeemed in exchange for a
pro rata
share of the aggregate amount on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest but net of taxes payable, calculated as of two (2) business days prior to the Closing. If demand is properly made, including the holder identifying itself in writing as a beneficial holder and providing its legal name, phone number and address to the transfer agent and the Business Combination is consummated, these shares, immediately prior to the Business Combination, will cease to be outstanding and will represent only the right to receive a
pro rata
share of the aggregate amount on deposit in the Trust Account, which holds the proceeds of our IPO (calculated as of two (2) business days prior to the Closing, including interest but net of taxes payable). You will no longer own those shares and will have no right to participate in, or have any interest in, the future growth of VPCC following the Business Combination, if any. For illustrative purposes, based on the fair value of marketable securities held in the Trust Account as of September 30, 2021 of approximately $253,782,145.56, the estimated per share redemption price would have been approximately $10.00.
In order to exercise redemption rights, holders of VPCC Class A Common Stock must follow specific procedures, some of which are time sensitive. See “
VPCC Special Meeting of Stockholders—Redemption Rights.
Prior to exercising redemption rights, stockholders should verify the market price of VPCC Class A Common Stock as they may receive higher proceeds from the sale of their VPCC Class A Common Stock in the public market than from exercising their redemption rights if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price. VPCC cannot assure you that you will be able to sell your shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in the VPCC Class A Common Stock when you wish to sell your shares.

Regulatory Approvals Required for the Mergers
The completion of the Mergers is subject to the requirements under the Hart Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (the “
HSR Act
”). Each of VPCC and Dave will use their reasonable best efforts to obtain all necessary actions, waivers, consents, approvals, orders and authorizations from governmental entities and make all necessary registrations, declarations and filings (including registrations, declarations and filings with governmental entities, if any), including by requesting early termination of the HSR waiting period. On June 21, 2021, VPCC and Dave filed the required forms under the HSR Act with the Antitrust Division and the FTC and requested early termination of the HSR
Act 30-day
waiting period. The waiting period expired on July 21, 2021.
Appraisal Rights of VPCC Stockholders
Appraisal rights are not available to holders of shares of VPCC Class A Common Stock or VPCC Class B Common Stock in connection with the Business Combination.
Appraisal Rights of Dave Stockholders
Pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL, Dave Stockholders who comply with the applicable requirements of Section 262 of the DGCL, and do not otherwise withdraw or lose the right to appraisal under Delaware have the right to seek appraisal of the fair value of their shares of Dave stock if the Mergers are completed. The “
fair value
” of your shares of Dave Capital Stock may be more or less than, or the same as, the value of the consideration that you are otherwise entitled to receive under the Merger Agreement. Dave Stockholders who do not consent to the adoption of the Merger Agreement and who wish to preserve their appraisal rights must so advise Dave by submitting a demand for appraisal within the period prescribed by Section 262 of the DGCL after receiving a notice from Dave or the Combined Company that appraisal rights are available to them, and must otherwise precisely follow the procedures prescribed by Section 262 of the DGCL. Failure to follow any of the statutory procedures set forth in Section 262 of the DGCL will result in the loss or waiver of appraisal rights under Delaware law. In view of the complexity of Section 262 of the DGCL, Dave Stockholders who may wish to pursue appraisal rights should consult their legal and financial advisors. For additional information on appraisal rights available to Dave stockholders, see the section titled “
Additional Information—Appraisal Rights
” beginning on page 257 of this proxy statement/prospectus.
Proxy Solicitation
Proxies may be solicited by mail. VPCC has engaged Morrow to assist in the solicitation of proxies for the Special Meeting.
If a stockholder grants a proxy, it may still vote its shares in person if it revokes its proxy before the Special Meeting. A stockholder may also change its vote by submitting a later-dated proxy, as described in the section titled “
VPCC Special Meeting of Stockholders
Revoking Your Proxy
.”

Summary of the Transactions
Set forth below is a summary of the transactions that are contemplated to occur in connection with the Business Combination.
Treatment of Dave Equity Interests and Convertible Securities in the Mergers
Capital Stock
In connection with the Mergers, (a) each share of Dave Class A Common Stock held by the Dave Stockholders will be cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive a number of shares of newly issued Combined Company Class A Common Stock equal to the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration and (b) each share of Dave Class V Common Stock held by the Company Stockholders will be cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive a number of shares of newly authorized and issued Combined Company Class V Common Stock equal to the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration.
In connection with the Transactions, the shares of Combined Company Common Stock received as consideration by Mr. Wilk will be shares of Combined Company Class V Common Stock, and will entitle Mr. Wilk to ten (10) votes per share until such time as such shares of Combined Company Class V Common Stock are exchanged pursuant to the terms of the Proposed Charter for an equal number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock (as more fully described below under “—
Certain Agreements Related to the Business
Combination—Proposed Charter and Combined Company Amended and Restated Bylaws
”). Mr. Wilk’s shares of Combined Company Class V Common Stock will provide him with approximately 70.3% of the voting power of the Combined Company Common Stock outstanding immediately following the Effective Time (and prior to any repurchases of shares of Combined Company Class V Common Stock by the Combined Company pursuant to the Repurchase (as further discussed below under “—
Certain Agreements Related to the Business Combination—Repurchase Agreement
”)), assuming no redemptions by VPCC Stockholders.
Warrants
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, each Dave Warrant that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically terminated in accordance with the terms of the applicable Dave Warrant and be of no further force or effect as of the Effective Time.
Vested and Unvested Options
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, each Dave Option that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) (other than any Dave
Non-Plan
Option, which will be handled as set forth below under “
Non-Plan
Option
,” below) will be automatically assumed by VPCC and
 
36

Table of Contents
converted into an option to acquire an adjusted number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock at an adjusted exercise price per share, determined in the manner described below. Each Rollover Option will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting and exercisability terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Dave Option, except to the extent such terms or conditions are rendered inoperative by the Transactions or such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as the parties to the Merger Agreement may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Options. The shares of Dave Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Dave Options that are outstanding, unexercised and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time are not included in the calculation of the “Dave Stock Adjusted Fully Diluted Shares” for purposes of the calculation of the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration, and the shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of Rollover Options representing at the Effective Time Unvested Dave Options are not considered a part of the Aggregate Stock Consideration. The Unvested Rollover Option Shares will reduce the shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock initially available for issuance under the 2021 Plan (as further discussed below under “—
Certain Agreements Related to the Business Combination—Equity Incentive Plans
”). See “
The Business Combination and the Merger Agreement
 — The Merger Agreement
 — Treatment of Dave Equity Interests
 — Vested and Unvested Options
” for more information.
Non-Plan
Option
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, each Dave
Non-Plan
Option that was granted prior to Closing and is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically cancelled for no consideration.
Restricted Stock
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, each award of Dave Restricted Stock that is outstanding and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time will be automatically assumed by VPCC and converted into an award of restricted stock with respect to an adjusted number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock determined by multiplying the number of shares of Dave Restricted Stock subject to such award by the Per Share Dave Stock Consideration and rounding the resulting number down to the nearest whole number of shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock. Each share of Rollover Restricted Stock will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Dave Restricted Stock, except to the extent such terms or conditions are rendered inoperative by the Transactions or such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as the parties to the Merger Agreement may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Restricted Stock.
Treatment of Founder Shares
Immediately prior to the Closing, the Sponsor and the Current Independent Directors will surrender to VPCC the Founder Holder Contingent Closing Shares (if any). In connection with the Closing, immediately following the conversion of the Founder Holder’s Founder Shares into shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock, the Sponsor and the Current Independent Directors shall subject the Founder Holder Earnout Shares to potential forfeiture in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement and the Founder Holder Agreement.
PIPE Investment
Immediately prior to the Closing, the PIPE Investors will subscribe for and purchase, and the Combined Company will issue to the PIPE Investors, an aggregate of 21,000,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock in exchange for an aggregate amount of cash equal to $210,000,000. On August 17, 2021, one of the PIPE Investors entered into an amendment to the Subscription Agreement to allow the PIPE Investor to pre-

Table of Contents
fund its $15,000,000 obligation under the Subscription Agreement in exchange for a promissory note in the principal amount of $15,000,000 convertible into 1,500,000 shares of Combined Company Class A Common Stock at Closing.
Risk Factors
In evaluating the Business Combination and the proposals to be considered and voted on at the Special Meeting, you should carefully review and consider the risk factors set forth under the section titled “
Risk Factors
” beginning on page 42 of this proxy statement/prospectus.
The occurrence of one or more of the events or circumstances described in the section titled “
Risk Factors
,” alone or in combination with other events or circumstances, may have a material adverse effect on (i) the ability of VPCC and Dave to complete the Business Combination, and (ii) the business, cash flows, financial condition and results of operations of the Combined Company following the Closing.
Some of the risks related to Dave’s business and industry are summarized below. References in the summary below to “we”, “us”, “our” and “the Company” generally refer to Dave in the present tense or the Combined Company from and after the Business Combination.
Risks Related to Dave’s Business and Industry
 
   
The industries in which we compete are highly competitive, which could adversely affect our results of operations.
 
   
If we are unable to keep pace with the rapid technological developments in our industry and the larger financial services industry necessary to continue providing our Members with new and innovative products and services, the use of our platform and other products and services could decline. In addition, if the prices we charge for our products and services are unacceptable to our Members, our operating results will be harmed.
 
   
Our
non-recourse
cash advances expose us to credit risk of our Members and if our underwriting criteria for making advances is not sufficient to mitigate against this risk, our financial condition and operating results could be adversely affected if a substantial number of our Members fail to repay the cash advance they receive.
 
   
We may not be able to scale our business quickly enough to meet our Members’ growing needs, and if we are not able to grow efficiently, our operating results could be harmed.
 
   
If we are unable to acquire new Members and retain our current members or sell additional functionality and services to them, our revenue growth will be adversely affected.
 
   
We have historically incurred losses in the operation of our business. We may never achieve or sustain profitability.
 
   
We operate in an uncertain regulatory environment and may from time to time be subject to governmental investigations or other inquiries by state, federal and local governmental authorities.
 
   
The financial services industry continues to be targeted by new laws or regulations in many jurisdictions, including the U.S. states in which we operate, that could restrict the products and services we offer, impose additional compliance costs on us, render our current operations unprofitable or even prohibit our current operations.
 
   
Our business is subject to extensive regulation and oversight in a variety of areas, including registration and licensing requirements under federal, state and local laws and regulations.
 
38

Table of Contents
   
Stringent and changing laws and regulations relating to privacy and data protection could result in claims, harm our results of operations, financial condition, and future prospects, or otherwise harm our business.
 
   
Dave identified material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting, which for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 resulted in a restatement of its financial statements, and if Dave is unable to remediate these material weaknesses, or if it identifies additional material weaknesses in the future or otherwise fails to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting, it may not be able to accurately or timely report its financial condition or results of operations, which may adversely affect Dave’s business and share price.
 
   
Dave’s forecasted operating results and projections rely in large part upon assumptions, analyses and internal estimates developed by Dave’s management. If these assumptions, analyses or estimates prove to be incorrect or inaccurate, Dave’s actual operating results may differ materially and adversely from those forecasted or projected.
 
   
Fraudulent and other illegal activity involving our products and services could lead to reputational damage to us, reduce the use of our platform and services and may adversely affect our financial position and results of operations.
 
   
In the normal course of business, we collect, process, use and retain sensitive and confidential information regarding our Members and prospective Members, including data provided by and related to Members and their transactions, as well as other data of the counterparties to their payments. A data security breach could expose us to liability and protracted and costly litigation, and could adversely affect our reputation and operating revenues.
 
   
Dave’s management has limited experience in operating a public company.
 
   
We transfer funds to our Members daily, which in the aggregate comprise substantial sums, and are subject to the risk of errors, which could result in financial losses, damage to our reputation, or loss of trust in our brand, which would harm our business and financial results.
 
   
Dave, Inc. has guaranteed up to $50,000,000 of one of its subsidiary’s obligations under a credit facility, and currently that limited guaranty is secured by a first-priority lien against substantially all of Dave, Inc.’s assets. The credit facility contains financial covenants and other restrictions on our actions, which could limit our operational flexibility and otherwise adversely affect our financial condition.
 
   
If our present or any future key banking relationships are terminated and we are not able to secure or successfully migrate client portfolios to a new bank partner or partners, our business would be adversely affected.
 
   
We depend upon several third-party service providers for processing our transactions and provide other important services for our business. If any of our agreements with our processing providers are terminated or if we experience any interruption or delay in the services provided by our third-party service providers, delivery of our products and services could be impaired or suspended and our business could suffer.
 
   
Our recent rapid growth, including growth in our volume of payments, may not be indicative of future growth, and if we continue to grow rapidly, we may not be able to manage our growth effectively. Our rapid growth also makes it difficult to evaluate our future prospects and may increase the risk that we will not be successful.
Risks Related to the Proposed Business Combination
 
   
VPCC’s directors and officers have potential conflicts of interest in recommending that VPCC’s stockholders vote in favor of the adoption of the Merger Agreement and the Proposed Business
 
39

Table of Contents
 
Combination, and approval of the other proposals to be described in the proxy statement relating to the Proposed Business Combination.
 
   
VPCC’s sponsor, directors and officers have agreed to vote in favor of the Proposed Business Combination, regardless of how VPCC’s public stockholders vote. As a result, approximately 20.0% of VPCC’s voting securities outstanding, representing the VPCC voting securities held by VPCC’s sponsor, directors and officers, will be contractually obligated to vote in favor of the Proposed Business Combination.
 
   
The VPCC board has not obtained and will not obtain a third-party valuation or financial opinion in determining whether to proceed with the Proposed Business Combination.
 
   
Both VPCC and Dave will incur significant transaction costs in connection with the Proposed Business Combination.
 
   
The consummation of the Proposed Business Combination is subject to a number of conditions and if those conditions are not satisfied or waived, the Proposed Business Combination agreement may be terminated in accordance with its terms and the Proposed Business Combination may not be completed.
 
   
The ability to successfully effect the Proposed Business Combination and the Combined Company’s ability to successfully operate the business thereafter will be largely dependent upon the efforts of certain key personnel of Dave, all of whom we expect to stay with the Combined Company following the Proposed Business Combination. The loss of such key personnel could negatively impact the operations and financial results of the combined business.
 
   
Following the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination, the Combined Company will incur significant increased expenses and administrative burdens as a public company, which could negatively impact its business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
   
There is no guarantee that a stockholder’s decision whether to redeem its shares for a pro rata portion of the trust account will put the stockholder in a better future economic position.
 
   
If the Proposed Business Combination’s benefits do not meet the expectations of investors or securities analysts, the market price of our securities or, following the consummation of the Proposed Business Combination, the Combined Company’s Securities, may decline.
 
   
There can be no assurance that the Combined Company’s common stock will be approved for listing on Nasdaq or that the Combined Company will be able to comply with the continued listing standards of Nasdaq.
 
   
Even if VPCC consummates the business combination, there can be no assurance that VPCC’s public warrants will be in the money during their exercise period, and they may expire worthless.
 
   
If you hold public warrants of VPCC, VPCC may, in accordance with their terms, redeem your unexpired VPCC warrants prior to their exercise at a time that is disadvantageous to you.
 
   
The public and private warrants of VPCC are accounted for as liabilities and the changes in value of such warrants could have a material effect on the financial results of VPCC.
 
   
Legal proceedings may be instituted against the Proposed Business Combination, which could delay or prevent or otherwise adversely impact the Proposed Business Combination.
 
   
Changes in laws or regulations, or a failure to comply with any laws and regulations, may adversely affect our business, including our ability to consummate the Proposed Business Combination, and results of operations.
Controlled Company Exemption
Upon the completion of the Business Combination, Mr. Wilk will be the beneficial owner of all outstanding shares of Combined Company Class V Common Stock and, as such, will control the voting power of our
 
40

Table of Contents
outstanding capital stock, as a result of which Mr. Wilk will have the power to elect a majority of the Combined Company’s directors. Pursuant to Nasdaq listing standards, a company of which more than 50% of the voting power for the election of directors is held by an individual, a group or another company qualifies as a “controlled company.” As a controlled company, the Combined Company will be exempt from certain Nasdaq corporate governance requirements, including the requirements (1) that a majority of the Combined Company Board consist of independent directors, (2) that the Combined Company Board have a compensation committee that is composed entirely of independent directors with a written charter addressing the committee’s purpose and responsibilities, and (3) that director nominees must either be selected, or recommended for the Combined Company Board’s selection, either by a majority of the independent directors in a vote in which only independent directors participate or a nominating committee comprised solely of independent directors. For at least some period following the Business Combination, the Combined Company will utilize these exemptions, during which time you will not have the same protections afforded to stockholders of companies that are subject to all of these corporate governance requirements. If the Combined Company ceases to be a “controlled company” and its shares continue to be listed on Nasdaq, the Combined Company will be required to comply with these standards and, depending on the board’s independence determination with respect to our then-current directors, the Combined Company may be required to add additional directors to its board in order to achieve such compliance within the applicable transition periods.
The controlled company exemptions do not modify the independence requirements for the audit committee, which will have to comply with the requirements of
Rule 10A-3
of the Exchange Act and Nasdaq listing rules, including the requirement to have an audit committee comprised of at least three members, all of whom are independent.

RISK FACTORS
In addition to the other information contained in this proxy statement/prospectus, including the matters addressed under the heading “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements,” you should carefully consider the following risk factors in deciding how to vote on the proposals presented in this proxy statement/prospectus. The occurrence of one or more of the events or circumstances described in these risk factors, alone or in combination with other events or circumstances, may have a material adverse effect on the Combined Company’s business, reputation, revenue, financial condition, results of operations and future prospects, in which event the market price of Combined Company Class A Common Stock could decline, and you could lose part or all of your investment.
Risks Related to Dave’s Business and Industry
The following risk factors will apply to Dave’s business and operations following the completion of the Business Combination. These risk factors are not exhaustive, and investors are encouraged to perform their own investigation with respect to the business, financial condition and prospects of Dave and its business, financial condition and prospects following the completion of the Business Combination. You should carefully consider the following risk factors in addition to the other information included in this proxy statement/prospectus, including matters addressed in the section titled “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.” Dave may face additional risks and uncertainties that are not presently known to it, or that it currently deems immaterial, which may also impair Dave’s business or financial condition. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of Dave and notes to the financial statements included herein.
Unless the context otherwise requires, all references in this subsection to the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our” refer to Dave and its subsidiaries prior to the consummation of the Business Combination, which will be the Combined Company and any subsidiaries following the consummation of the Business Combination.
The industries in which we compete are highly competitive, which could adversely affect our results of operations.
The industries in which we compete are highly competitive and subject to rapid and significant changes. We compete against companies and financial institutions across the retail banking, financial services, consumer technology and financial technology services industries, as well as other nonbank lenders serving credit-challenged consumers, including online marketplace lenders, check cashers,
point-of-sale
lenders and payday lenders. We may compete with others in the market who may in the future provide offerings similar to ours, particularly companies who may provide money management, lending and other services though a platform similar to our platform. These and other competitors in the banking and financial technology industries are introducing innovative products and services that may compete with ours. We expect that this competition will continue as banking and financial technology industries continue to evolve, particularly if
non-traditional
non-recourse
advance providers and other parties gain greater market share in these industries. If we are unable to differentiate our products and platform from and successfully compete with those of our competitors, our business, results of operations and financial condition will be materially and adversely affected.
Many existing and potential competitors are entities substantially larger in size, have more resources, are more highly diversified in revenue and substantially more established with significantly more brand awareness than ours. As such, many of our competitors can leverage their size, robust networks, financial wherewithal, brand awareness, pricing power and technological assets to compete with us. To the extent new entrants gain market share, the purchase and use of our products and services would decline. If price competition materially intensifies, we may have to decrease the prices of our products and services, which would likely adversely affect the results of operations.
Our long-term success depends on our ability to compete effectively against existing and potential competitors that seek to provide banking and financial technology products and services. If we fail to compete effectively
