Item 1.01 Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On October 7, 2020, Stable Road Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Parent, Project Marvel First Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“First Merger Sub”), Project Marvel Second Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Second Merger Sub”), and Momentus Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), pursuant to which: (a) First Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company (the “First Merger”), with the Company being the surviving corporation of the First Merger (such company, in its capacity as the surviving corporation of the First Merger, the “Surviving Corporation”) and (b) immediately following the First Merger and as part of the same overall transaction as the First Merger, the Surviving Corporation will merge with and into Second Merger Sub (the “Second Merger” and, together with the First Merger, the “Mergers”), with Second Merger Sub being the surviving company of the Second Merger. The transactions set forth in the Merger Agreement, including the Mergers, will constitute a “Business Combination” as contemplated by Parent’s Amended & Restated Certificate of Incorporation.

 

The Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby were unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of Parent (the “Board”) on October 7, 2020.

 

The Merger Agreement

 

Merger Consideration

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the aggregate merger consideration payable to the equityholders of the Company will be paid in equity consideration equal to $1,131,000,000, minus the Company’s indebtedness for borrowed money as of the closing of the Mergers (the “Closing”), plus the amount of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents (excluding restricted cash as determined in accordance with GAAP, any cash being held on behalf of the Company’s customers and any security deposits for leases) as of the Closing, plus the aggregate exercise price of all outstanding options and warrants (the “Merger Consideration”). The Merger Consideration payable to the stockholders of the Company will be paid in shares of newly issued Class A common stock of Parent, par value $0.00001 (“Parent Class A Common Stock”), with a deemed value of $10 per share. In addition, Parent will pay off, or cause to be paid off, on behalf of the Company and in connection with the Closing, the Company’s outstanding indebtedness for borrowed money.

 

In connection with the Mergers, each share of the Company’s capital stock (subject to limited exceptions) will be cancelled and automatically deemed for all purposes to represent the right to receive a portion of the Merger Consideration in accordance with the Company’s organizational documents. In addition, the Merger Consideration that is paid with respect to any shares of the Company’s capital stock that is subject to any vesting restrictions or other conditions shall continue to be subject to such vesting restrictions and conditions after the Closing.

 

Each option of the Company (“Company Option”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Closing (whether vested or unvested) will be automatically assumed by Parent and converted into an option to acquire an adjusted number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock 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 Company Option.

 

Each warrant to purchase shares of capital stock of the Company (“Company Warrants”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Closing will be automatically converted into a warrant to acquire an adjusted number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock at an adjusted exercise price per share and will continue to be governed by substantially the same terms and conditions (including applicable vesting conditions) as were applicable to the corresponding former Company Warrant.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Mergers, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants that the respective parties made to each other as of the date of such agreement or other specific dates. The assertions embodied in those representations, warranties and covenants were made for purposes of the contract among the respective parties to the Merger Agreement and are subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by the contracting parties in connection with negotiating the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement has been attached to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Parent or any other party to the Merger Agreement. In particular, the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in the Merger Agreement, which were made only for purposes of the Merger Agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the respective parties to the Merger Agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties (including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the respective parties to the Merger Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts) and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to Parent’s investors and security holders. Except as expressly stated therein, Parent’s and the Company’s investors and security holders are not third-party beneficiaries under the Merger Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements, or any descriptions thereof, as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of any party to the Merger Agreement. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in Parent’s public disclosures.

Private Placement Subscription Agreements

 

On October 7, 2020, Parent entered into Subscription Agreements with certain investors (the “Subscription Agreements”) pursuant to which the investors have agreed to purchase an aggregate of 17,500,000 shares of Parent Class A Common Stock in a private placement for $10.00 per share (the “Private Placement”), including 1,000,000 shares which were agreed to be purchased by SRAC PIPE Partners LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SRAC Partners”). The proceeds from the Private Placement will be partially used to fund the Repurchase and for general working capital purposes following the closing.

 

Each Subscription Agreement will terminate upon the earlier to occur of (a) the termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms, (b) the mutual written agreement of the parties to such Subscription Agreement, (c) 30 days after the Outside Date (as defined in the Merger Agreement), if the Closing has not occurred by such date, or (d) by written notice of the investor to Parent in the event the Merger Agreement is amended, supplemented or otherwise modified after the date such Subscription Agreement was entered into in a manner that materially adversely affects the investor. As of the date hereof, the shares of Parent Class A Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Subscription Agreements have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Parent will, within 30 days after the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, file with the SEC a registration statement registering the resale of such shares of Parent Class A Common Stock and will use its commercially reasonable efforts to have such registration statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof (but no later than the earlier of (i) the 60th calendar day following the filing date (or the 90th calendar day if the SEC notifies Parent (orally or in writing) that it will “review” the registration statement) and (ii) the 5th business day after the date Parent is notified (orally or in writing) by the SEC that the registration statement will not be “reviewed” or will not be subject to further review). A copy of the Subscription Agreement, in substantially the same form as entered into with such investors, is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated herein by reference, and the foregoing description of the Private Placement is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.

 

Support Agreement

 

Concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, Mikhail Kokorich, Prime Movers Lab Fund I, LP (“PML”), and certain affiliated equityholders of PML (each, a “Written Consent Party”), which collectively hold (a) a majority of the outstanding voting power of the Company stock issued and outstanding as of the date hereof (voting as a single class and on an as-converted basis), (b) a majority of the shares of the Company common stock issued and outstanding as of the date hereof (voting as a single class) and (c) a majority of the shares of the Company preferred stock issued and outstanding as of the date hereof (voting as a single class and on an as-converted basis), entered into Support Agreements with Parent (each, a “Support Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, each Written Consent Party agreed to support the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including agreeing to execute a written consent constituting the requisite Company stockholder approval within three (3) business days of the Registration Statement becoming effective. The Support Agreements will terminate upon the earlier to occur of: (i) the effective time of the Mergers, (ii) the date of the termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms, and (iii) the effective date of a mutual written agreement of Parent and such Written Consent Party terminating such Support Agreement.

Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement

 

At the consummation of the Mergers, Parent, Sponsor, certain existing holder(s) of Parent capital stock (including SRAC Partners) and certain Company stockholders, in each case who will receive Parent Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby will enter into an Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) in respect of the shares of Parent Class A Common Stock issued to Sponsor and such Company stockholders in connection with the transactions set forth above. Pursuant to such agreement, such holders and their permitted transferees will be entitled to certain customary registration rights, including, among other things, demand, shelf and piggy-back rights, subject to cut-back provisions. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, Sponsor and SRAC Partners will agree not to sell, transfer, pledge or otherwise dispose of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock or other securities exercisable therefor for certain time periods specified therein.

 

Repurchase Agreement

 

Concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, PML, the Company and Parent entered into a repurchase agreement (the “Repurchase Agreement”) pursuant to which, amongst other things, Parent has agreed to repurchase a certain number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock from PML, at a purchase price of $10.00 per share, immediately following the Closing (the “Repurchase”). The Repurchase is contingent on the amount of available cash Parent has at the Closing from (a) the Private Placement (and any alternative financing arranged by Parent and the Company in the event the Private Placement becomes unavailable) and (b) the funds in Parent’s trust account (after taking into account payments required to satisfy Parent’s stockholder redemptions), after further deducting the amount of Parent’s transaction expenses and the Company’s transaction expenses (“Net Proceeds”) being in excess of $265 million. If Net Proceeds exceed $265,000,000 but are less than $280,000,000, the number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock subject to the Repurchase will be equal to the amount by which Net Proceeds exceed $250 million, divided by $10.00. In the event Net Proceeds are in excess of $280,000,000, the number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock subject to the Repurchase will be equal to $30,000,000, divided by $10.00. At the closing of the Repurchase, Parent will be entitled to deduct from such cash payment an amount equal to 3.3% of such cash payment (representing PML’s obligation to pay the Company a portion of its transaction expenses). The Repurchase Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.4 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference, and the foregoing description of the Repurchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.

Subject to Section 7.15, at the Second Effective Time, the certificate of formation and operating agreement of Second Merger Sub shall be the certificate of formation and operating agreement of the Surviving Entity until thereafter amended in accordance with its terms and as provided by applicable Law, except that the name of the Surviving Entity shall be “Momentus Space LLC”.

 

Section 2.5 Directors and Officers of the Surviving Corporation and the Surviving Entity.

 

(a) The Company shall take all necessary action prior to the Effective Time such that (i) each director of the Company in office immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to be a director immediately following the Effective Time (including by causing each such director to tender an irrevocable resignation as a director, effective as of the Effective Time) and (ii) each person set forth on Section 2.5(a) of the Company Disclosure Letter shall be appointed to the Board of Directors of the Surviving Corporation, effective as of immediately following the Effective Time, and, as of such time, shall be the only directors of the Surviving Corporation (including by causing the board of directors of the Company to adopt resolutions prior to the Effective Time that expand or decrease the size of the board of directors of the Company, as necessary, and appoint such persons to the vacancies resulting from the incumbent directors’ respective resignations or, if applicable, the newly created directorships upon any expansion of the size of the board of directors of the Company).  Each person appointed as a director of the Surviving Corporation pursuant to the preceding sentence shall remain in office as a director of the Surviving Corporation until his or her successor is elected and qualified or until his or her earlier death, resignation or removal.

 

(b) Persons constituting the executive officers of the Company prior to the Effective Time shall continue to be the executive officers of the Surviving Corporation until the earlier of their death, resignation or removal or until their respective successors are duly appointed.

 

(c) Immediately following the Second Effective Time the (i) directors of the Surviving Corporation shall be the managers of the Surviving Entity and (ii) executive officers of the Surviving Corporation shall be the executive officers of the Surviving Entity, in each case, as set forth in the operating agreement of the Surviving Entity.

 

Section 2.6 Effect of the First Merger. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, at the Effective Time, by virtue of the First Merger and without any further action on the part of Parent, First Merger Sub, the Company, the holders of Company Interests or the holders of any of the securities of Parent, the following shall occur:

 

7

 

 

(a) Each share of Company Stock (other than Excluded Shares and shares of unvested Company Restricted Stock) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be cancelled and automatically deemed for all purposes to represent the right to receive, and the holder of such share of Company Stock shall be entitled to receive, the Per Share Company Stock Consideration pursuant to this Section 2.6(a), issuable in Parent Class A Common Stock, in each case, without interest, upon surrender of stock certificates representing all of such Company Stockholder’s Company Stock (each, a “Certificate”) and delivery of the other documents required pursuant to Section 2.8. As of the Effective Time, each Company Stockholder shall cease to have any other rights in and to the Company, the Surviving Corporation or the Surviving Entity, and each Certificate relating to the ownership of shares of Company Stock (other than Excluded Shares) shall thereafter represent only the right to receive the Per Share Company Stock Consideration.

 

(b) Each Company Warrant that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will automatically be converted into a warrant to acquire a number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock at an adjusted exercise price per share, in each case, as determined under this Section 2.6(b) (each such resulting warrant, an “Assumed Warrant”). Each Assumed Warrant shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such corresponding Company Warrant immediately prior to the Effective Time (including applicable vesting conditions), 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 may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Assumed Warrants. Accordingly, effective as of the Effective Time: (a) each such Assumed Warrant shall be exercisable solely for shares of Parent Class A Common Stock; (b) the number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock subject to each Assumed Warrant shall be determined by multiplying the number of shares of Company Stock subject to the Company Warrant by the Per Share Company Stock Consideration and rounding the resulting number down to the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock; and (c) the per share exercise price for the Parent Class A Common Stock issuable upon exercise of such Company Warrant shall be determined by dividing the per share exercise price for the shares of Company Stock subject to the Company Warrant, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, by the Per Share Company Stock Consideration, and rounding the resulting exercise price up to the nearest whole cent. Prior to the Effective Time, the Company shall, if applicable, deliver any notices and obtain any consents required in order to effect the treatment of the Company Warrants described in this Section 2.6(b) pursuant to the terms of the Company Warrants and any plan or similar document governing the Company Warrants.

 

(c) Each Company Option that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) shall automatically be assumed by Parent and converted into an option to acquire a number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock at an adjusted exercise price per share, in each case, as determined under this Section 2.6(c) (each such resulting option, a “Rollover Option”). Each Rollover Option shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such corresponding Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time (including applicable vesting conditions), 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 may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Options. Accordingly, effective as of the Effective Time: (i) each such Rollover Option shall be exercisable solely for shares of Parent Class A Common Stock; (ii) the number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock subject to each Rollover Option shall be determined by multiplying the number of shares of Company Stock subject to the corresponding Company Option by the Per Share Company Stock Consideration and rounding the resulting number down to the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock; and (iii) the per share exercise price for the Parent Class A Common Stock issuable upon exercise of such Rollover Option shall be determined by dividing the per share exercise price for the shares of Company Stock subject to the Company Option, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, by the Per Share Company Stock Consideration, and rounding the resulting exercise price up to the nearest whole cent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the conversions described in this Section 2.6(c) shall occur in a manner consistent with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code and, in the case of any Company Option to which Section 422 of the Code applies, the exercise price and the number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock purchasable pursuant to such option shall be determined in a manner consistent with the requirements of Section 424(a) of the Code. Prior to the Effective Time, the Company shall perform such actions as are required under the Company Stock Plans and the awards governing the Company Options in order to effect the treatment of the Company Options described in this Section 2.6(c).

 

8

 

 

(d) Each Company Non-Plan Option that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be automatically cancelled for no consideration.

 

(e) Each award of Company Restricted Stock that is outstanding and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time shall automatically be assumed by Parent and converted into an award of restricted stock with respect to a number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock (the “Rollover Restricted Stock”) determined by multiplying the number of shares of Company Restricted Stock subject to such award by the Per Share Company Stock Consideration and rounding the resulting number down to the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock. Each share of Rollover Restricted Stock shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such corresponding share of Company Restricted Stock immediately prior to the Effective Time (including applicable vesting conditions), 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 may determine are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Rollover Restricted Stock. The Parties intend that the Rollover Restricted Stock payable pursuant to this Section 2.6(e) to the holders of Company Common Stock (but only with respect to their Company Common Stock which was fully vested upon receipt or for which they have filed timely and valid elections under Section 83(b) of the Code) will be treated as received in exchange for the applicable holder’s Company Common Stock, and agree to report for income Tax purposes such payments as consideration for such holder’s Company Common Stock and not as compensation for services. Pursuant to Revenue Ruling 2007-49, the holders of Company Common Stock that receive Rollover Restricted Stock in the First Merger pursuant to this Section 2.6(e) that are subject to vesting arrangements will make a timely and valid election under Section 83(b) of the Code with respect to such Rollover Restricted Stock, in which case, the Parties agree that no compensation will occur when such Rollover Restricted Stock is issued or vests.

 

(f) Immediately prior to the Effective Time, each outstanding Company SAFE shall be automatically converted into the right to receive the aggregate Per Share Company Stock Consideration payable in accordance with the terms of such applicable Company SAFE in connection with the Transactions (for the avoidance of doubt, with respect to each Company SAFE, such aggregate Per Share Company Stock Consideration shall be equal to (i) the number of shares of Company Stock equal to the (A) Purchase Amount (as defined in each such Company SAFE), divided by (B) Liquidity Price (as defined in each such Company SAFE) applicable to such Company SAFE, multiplied by (ii) the Per Share Company Stock Consideration). Each Company SAFE so converted shall immediately thereafter terminate in accordance with its terms.

 

(g) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no certificates or scrip representing fractional shares of Parent Class A Common Stock shall be issued upon the conversion of Company Interests, as applicable pursuant to this Section 2.6, and such fractional share interests shall not entitle the owner thereof to vote or to any other rights of a holder of Parent Class A Common Stock. In lieu of the issuance of any such fractional share, Parent shall pay to each former holder of Company Interests (other than Excluded Shares) who otherwise would be entitled to receive such fractional share an amount in cash, without interest, rounded down to the nearest cent, equal to the product of (a) the amount of the fractional share interest in a share of Parent Class A Common Stock to which such holder otherwise would have been entitled but for this Section 2.6(g), multiplied by (b) $10.00.

 

9

 

 

(h) Each issued and outstanding share of common stock of First Merger Sub shall be converted into and become one (1) validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Surviving Corporation, which shall constitute the only outstanding shares of capital stock of the Surviving Corporation. From and after the Effective Time, all certificates representing the common stock of First Merger Sub shall be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation into which they were converted in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence.

 

(i) Each share of Company Stock held in the Company’s treasury or owned by Parent, First Merger Sub, Second Merger Sub or the Company immediately prior to the Effective Time (together with the Dissenting Shares, the “Excluded Shares”), shall be cancelled and no consideration shall be paid or payable with respect thereto.

 

(j) The numbers of shares of Parent Class A Common Stock that the holders of Company Interests are entitled to receive as a result of the First Merger and as otherwise contemplated by this Agreement shall be adjusted to reflect appropriately the effect of any stock split, split-up, reverse stock split, stock dividend or distribution (including any dividend or distribution of securities convertible into Parent Class A Common Stock), extraordinary cash dividend, reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, combination, exchange of shares or other like change with respect to Parent Class A Common Stock occurring on or after the date hereof and prior to the Closing.

 

Section 2.7 Effect of the Second Merger. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, at the Second Effective Time, by virtue of the Second Merger and without any action on the part of any Party or any holder of Company Interests or the holders of any shares of capital stock of Parent, the Surviving Corporation or Second Merger Sub: (a) each share of common stock of the Surviving Corporation issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Second Effective Time shall be cancelled and shall cease to exist without any conversion thereof or payment therefor; and (b) the membership interest of Second Merger Sub outstanding immediately prior to the Second Effective Time shall be converted into and become the membership interest of the Surviving Entity, which shall constitute one hundred percent (100%) of the outstanding equity of the Surviving Entity. From and after the Second Effective Time, the membership interests of the Second Merger Sub shall be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of membership interests into which they were converted in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence.

 

Section 2.8 Disbursement of Aggregate Stock Consideration.

 

(a) Subject to this Section 2.8, promptly following the Effective Time, Parent shall deliver, or cause to be delivered to each holder of Company Interests (other than holders of Excluded Shares, Company Options, Company Warrants and Company Restricted Stock) the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration payable to such holder in respect of the Company Interests held by such holder in accordance with the terms of Section 2.6 (as reflected in the Company Closing Statement).

 

(b) Prior to the Effective Time, Parent shall appoint a commercial bank or trust company (the “Exchange Agent”) for the purpose of exchanging Certificates, if applicable, and otherwise distributing to each holder of Company Interests (other than holders of Excluded Shares, Company Options, Company Warrants and Company Restricted Stock) the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration payable to each such holder of Company Interests.

 

10

 

 

(c) At the Effective Time, Parent shall make available to the Exchange Agent the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration required pursuant to the Company Closing Statement to fund the payments set forth in Section 2.6(a) and Section 2.6(f). Such equity deposited with the Exchange Agent shall be referred to in this Agreement as the “Exchange Fund”. At the Effective Time, Parent shall deliver irrevocable instructions to the Exchange Agent to deliver such foregoing portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration out of the Exchange Fund in the manner it is contemplated to be issued or paid pursuant to this ARTICLE II.

 

(d) Promptly after the Effective Time (and in any event within five (5) Business Days thereafter), the Exchange Agent shall mail to each holder of Company Interests (other than holders of Excluded Shares and holders of Company Options, Company Warrants and Company Restricted Stock): (i) a letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”) in such form and having such other provisions as Parent and the Company may reasonably agree; and (ii) instructions for surrendering Certificates representing Company Stock (or affidavits of loss in lieu of the Certificates as provided in Section 2.8(g)), if applicable, to the Exchange Agent (the “Surrender Documentation”); provided, however, that the Exchange Agent shall not be required to deliver a Letter of Transmittal or Surrender Documentation to any holder of Company Interests that has delivered its Letter of Transmittal and Surrender Documentation, if applicable, with respect to such holder’s Company Interests to the Exchange Agent at least two Business Days prior to the Closing Date. Upon receipt by the Exchange Agent of the completed Letter of Transmittal and the Surrender Documentation, the Exchange Agent will deliver to the holder of such Company Interests the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration payable to such holder in respect of the Company Interests held by such holder in accordance with the terms of Section 2.6, less any required Tax withholdings as provided in Section 2.9; provided, however, that if the holder of such Company Interests delivers to the Exchange Agent the Letter of Transmittal and, if applicable, Surrender Documentation, at least two Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Exchange Agent shall deliver to the holder of such Company Interests the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration payable to such holder on the Closing Date or as promptly as practicable thereafter. All Certificates surrendered by the Company Stockholders shall forthwith be cancelled. Until a Letter of Transmittal and, if applicable, Surrender Documentation, has been received by the Exchange Agent, each Company Interest shall represent after the Effective Time for all purposes only the right to receive the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration payable in respect of such Company Interest pursuant to Section 2.6. No interest will be paid or accrued on any amount payable upon due submission of any Letter of Transmittal or, if applicable, Surrender Documentation.

 

(e) In the event of a transfer of ownership of shares of Company Stock that is not registered in the transfer records of the Company, the Per Share Company Stock Consideration to be delivered upon due surrender of the Certificate may be issued to such transferee if the Certificate formerly representing such shares of Company Stock is presented to the Exchange Agent, accompanied by all documents required to evidence and effect such transfer and to evidence that any applicable stock transfer Taxes have been paid or are not applicable. From and after the Effective Time, there shall be no transfers on the transfer books of the Company of any shares of Company Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time. If, after the Effective Time, any Certificate is presented to the Surviving Corporation, the Surviving Entity, Parent or the Exchange Agent for transfer, it shall be cancelled and deemed exchanged for (without interest and after giving effect to any required Tax withholdings as provided in Section 2.9) the aggregate Per Share Company Stock Consideration represented by such Certificate, as applicable.

 

(f) Any portion of the Exchange Fund (including the proceeds of any investments of the Exchange Fund) that remains unclaimed by the holders of Company Interests for 180 days after the Effective Time shall be delivered to the Surviving Entity. Any holder of Company Interests who has not theretofore complied with this ARTICLE II shall thereafter look only to the Surviving Entity for payment of their respective portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration (after giving effect to any required Tax withholdings as provided in Section 2.9). Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of the Surviving Corporation, the Surviving Entity, Parent, the Exchange Agent or any other Person shall be liable to any former holder of Company Interests for any amount properly delivered to a public official pursuant to applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar Laws.

 

11

 

 

(g) In the event any Certificate shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed: (i) upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the Person claiming such Certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed; and (ii) if required by Parent, the posting by such Person of a bond in customary amount and upon such terms as may be required by Parent as indemnity against any claim that may be made against it, the Surviving Corporation or the Surviving Entity with respect to such Certificate, the Exchange Agent will issue the portion of the Aggregate Stock Consideration attributable to such Certificate (after giving effect to any required Tax withholdings as provided in Section 2.9).

 

Section 2.9 Withholding Taxes. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, each of Parent, First Merger Sub, Second Merger Sub, the Company, the Surviving Corporation, the Surviving Entity and their respective Affiliates shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from any consideration or other amounts otherwise deliverable or payable under this Agreement such amounts that any such Persons are required to deduct and withhold under the Code or any other applicable Tax Law. To the extent that Parent, First Merger Sub, Second Merger Sub, the Company, the Surviving Corporation, the Surviving Entity or their respective Affiliates withholds such amounts with respect to any Person and pays such withheld amounts to the applicable Governmental Entity, such withheld amounts shall be treated as having been paid to or on behalf of such Person for all purposes. In the case of any such payment payable to employees of the Company or its Affiliates in connection with the Mergers treated as compensation for applicable Tax purposes, the parties shall cooperate to pay such amounts through the Company’s payroll to facilitate applicable withholding.

 

Section 2.10 Appraisal Rights.

 

(a) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary and to the extent available under the DGCL or, to the extent applicable, the CCC, shares of Company Stock that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and that are held by Company Stockholders who shall have neither voted in favor of the First Merger nor consented thereto in writing in respect of such Company Stock and who shall have demanded properly in writing appraisal for such Company Stock in accordance with Section 262 of the DGCL, or, to the extent applicable, Chapter 13 of the CCC, and otherwise complied with all of the provisions of the DGCL or CCC, as applicable, relevant to the exercise and perfection of appraisal rights (collectively, the “Dissenting Shares”), shall not be converted into, and such Company Stockholders shall have no right to receive, the Per Share Company Stock Consideration that would otherwise be attributable to such Dissenting Shares in accordance with Section 2.6 (as reflected in the Company Closing Statement) unless and until such Company Stockholder fails to perfect or withdraws or otherwise loses his, her or its right to appraisal and payment under the DGCL, and if and to the extent applicable, the CCC. Any Company Stockholder who fails to perfect or who effectively withdraws or otherwise loses his, her or its rights to appraisal of such Dissenting Shares under Section 262 of the DGCL, and if and to the extent applicable, Chapter 13 of the CCC (or other applicable Law), shall thereupon be deemed to have been converted into, and to have become exchangeable for, as of the Effective Time, the right to receive the Per Share Company Stock Consideration attributable to such Dissenting Shares in accordance with the terms of the Company’s Charter Documents (as reflected in the Company Closing Statement), without any interest thereon, upon surrender, in the manner provided in Section 2.8, of the Certificate or Certificates that formerly evidenced such Dissenting Shares.

 

12

 

 

(b) Prior to the Closing, the Company shall give Parent (i) prompt written notice of any demands for appraisal received by the Company and any withdrawals of such demands, and (ii) the opportunity to participate in all negotiations and proceedings (including the defense and any settlement thereof) with respect to demands for appraisal under the DGCL and, if and to the extent applicable, the CCC. The Company will enforce any contractual waivers that Company Stockholders have granted regarding appraisal rights that apply to the Transactions. The Company shall not, except with the prior written consent of Parent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), make any payment with respect to any demands for appraisal or offer to settle or settle any such demands.

 

Section 2.11 Taking of Necessary Action; Further Actions. If, at any time after the Effective Time or the Second Effective Time, any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this Agreement and to vest the Surviving Corporation following the First Merger and the Surviving Entity following the Second Merger with full right, title and possession to all assets, property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of the Company, First Merger Sub and Second Merger Sub, the officers and directors or members, as applicable, (or their designees) of the Company, First Merger Sub and Second Merger Sub are fully authorized in the name of their respective corporations or otherwise to take, and will take, all such lawful and necessary action, so long as such action is not inconsistent with this Agreement.

 

Section 2.12 Tax Treatment of the Mergers. The Parties intend that, for United States federal income tax purposes, the Mergers will constitute an integrated plan described in Rev. Rul. 2001-46, 2001-2 C.B. 321 that qualifies as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations to which each of Parent and the Company are to be parties under Section 368(b) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations (the “Intended Tax Treatment”) and this Agreement is intended to be, and is adopted as, a plan of reorganization for purposes of Sections 354, 361 and the 368 of the Code and within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.368-2(g). None of the Parties knows of any fact or circumstance (without conducting independent inquiry or diligence of the other relevant party), or has taken or will take any action, whether before or after the Mergers, if such fact, circumstance or action would be reasonably expected to cause the Mergers, taken together, to fail to qualify for the Intended Tax Treatment. The Mergers, taken together, shall be reported by the Parties for all Tax purposes in accordance with the Intended Tax Treatment, including the filing of the statement required by Treasury Regulations Section 1.368-3, unless otherwise required by a Governmental Entity as a result of a “determination” within the meaning of Section 1313(a) of the Code. The Parties shall reasonably cooperate with each other and their respective counsel to document and support the Intended Tax Treatment, including providing factual support letters of the sort customarily provided as the basis for a legal opinion that the Mergers qualify for the Intended Tax Treatment. For the avoidance of doubt, the qualification of the Mergers for the Intended Tax Treatment will not be a condition to Closing.

 

ARTICLE III.
SPONSOR EARNOUT SHARES

 

Section 3.1 Potential Forfeiture. In accordance with the Sponsor Agreement, Sponsor has agreed that, effective upon the Closing, the Sponsor will subject 1,437,500 shares of Parent Class A Common Stock owned by Sponsor (the “Sponsor Earnout Shares”) to potential forfeiture if the Triggering Events do not occur during the Earnout Period, with such Sponsor Earnout Shares vesting (and therefore no longer subject to forfeiture) pursuant to the terms of this ARTICLE III. Until the occurrence of the applicable Triggering Event, certificates representing the Sponsor Earnout Shares shall bear a legend referencing that they are subject to forfeiture pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, and any transfer agent for Parent Class A Common Stock will be given appropriate stop transfer orders that will be applicable until the Sponsor Earnout Shares are vested; provided, however, that upon the vesting of any Sponsor Earnout Shares in accordance with the terms herein, Parent shall immediately cause the removal of such legend and direct such transfer agent that such stop transfer orders are no longer applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, each Triggering Event shall only occur once, if at all.

 

13

 

 

Section 3.2 Vesting. Until the earlier of all of the Sponsor Earnout Shares having become fully vested or the expiry of the Earnout Period:

 

(a) one-third (1/3rd) of the Sponsor Earnout Shares (479,166 shares) shall immediately become fully vested and no longer subject to forfeiture upon the occurrence of Triggering Event I;

 

(b) one-third (1/3rd) of the Sponsor Earnout Shares (479,167 shares) shall immediately become fully vested and no longer subject to forfeiture upon the occurrence of Triggering Event II; and

 

(c) one-third (1/3rd) of the Sponsor Earnout Shares (479,167 shares) shall immediately become fully vested and no longer subject to forfeiture upon the occurrence of Triggering Event III.

 

Section 3.3 Adjustment. If, and as often as, the outstanding shares of Parent Class A Common Stock are changed into a different number of shares or a different class, by reason of any dividend, subdivision, reclassification, recapitalization, split, combination or exchange, or any similar event after the date hereof, then the number of Sponsor Earnout Shares to be surrendered or forfeited pursuant to this ARTICLE III will in each case be equitably adjusted to reflect such change.

 

ARTICLE IV.

The Parent SEC Reports were prepared in all material respects in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, as the case may be, and the rules and regulations thereunder. The Parent SEC Reports did not at the time they were filed with the SEC contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. Parent maintains disclosure controls and procedures required by Rule 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Each director and executive officer of Parent has filed with the SEC on a timely basis all statements required with respect to Parent by Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder. As used in this Section 5.7, the term “file” shall be broadly construed to include any manner in which a document or information is furnished, supplied or otherwise made available to the SEC or Nasdaq.

 

(b) The financial statements and notes contained or incorporated by reference in the Parent SEC Reports fairly present in all material respects the financial condition and the results of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows of Parent as at the respective dates of, and for the periods referred to, in such financial statements, all in accordance with: (i) GAAP; and (ii) Regulation S-X or Regulation S-K, as applicable, subject, in the case of interim financial statements, to normal recurring year-end adjustments (the effect of which will not, individually or in the aggregate, be material) and the omission of notes, or the inclusion of limited notes, and other presentation items for normal year-end adjustments to the extent permitted by Regulation S-X or Regulation S-K, as applicable. Parent has no off-balance sheet arrangements that are not disclosed in the Parent SEC Reports. No financial statements other than those of Parent are required by GAAP to be included in the consolidated financial statements of Parent.

 

39

 

 

(c) There is no liability, debt or obligation (absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise) of any of the Parent or its Subsidiaries of the nature required to be disclosed or reserved for in a balance sheet prepared in accordance with GAAP, except for liabilities, debts and obligations: (a) provided for in, or otherwise reflected or reserved for the financial statements and notes contained or incorporated by reference in the Parent SEC Reports; (b) that have arisen since the date of the most recent balance sheet included in the financial statements and notes contained or incorporated by reference in the Parent SEC Reports in the ordinary course of the operation of business of Parent; (c) incurred in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; (d) that will be discharged or paid off prior to or at the Closing; or (e) that would not be material to the business of Parent and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

Except as set forth in Parent SEC Reports filed prior to the date of this Agreement, and except as contemplated by this Agreement, since December 31, 2019, there has not been: (a) any Parent Material Adverse Effect or (b) any action taken or agreed upon by Parent or any of its Subsidiaries that would be prohibited by Section 6.2 if such action were taken on or after the date hereof without the consent of the Company.

 

Section 5.9 Litigation. There are no Legal Proceedings pending or, to the Knowledge of Parent, threatened in writing against or otherwise relating to Parent or any of its Subsidiaries, before any Governmental Entity: (a) challenging or seeking to enjoining, alter or materially delay the Transactions; or (b) that would, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to be material to Parent.

 

Section 5.10 Business Activities. Since their respective dates of formation or incorporation, as applicable, none of Parent, First Merger Sub or Second Merger Sub has conducted any business activities other than activities: (a) in connection with or ancillary to its organization, including activities customary for the formation and operation of special purpose acquisition companies; (b) directed toward or incidental to the accomplishment of a business combination; or (c) required by Law. Except as set forth in Parent’s Charter Documents, there is no Contract or Order binding upon Parent, First Merger Sub or Second Merger Sub or to which any of them is a party which has or could reasonably be expected to have the effect of prohibiting or materially impairing any business practice of it, any acquisition of property by it or the conduct of business by it as currently conducted or as currently contemplated to be conducted as of the Closing, other than such effects, individually or in the aggregate, which would not reasonably be expected to be material to Parent. Parent does not own or have a right to acquire, directly or indirectly, any interest or investment (whether equity or debt) in any corporation, partnership, joint venture, business, trust or other entity. Except for this Agreement and the Transactions, neither Parent nor any of its Subsidiaries has any interests, rights, obligations or liabilities with respect to, or is party to, bound by or has its assets or property subject to, in each case whether directly or indirectly, any Contract or transaction which is, or could reasonably be interpreted as constituting, a Business Combination. Except for this Agreement and the Transaction Agreements, neither Parent, First Merger Sub nor Second Merger Sub are not party to any Contract with any other Person that would require payments by Parent, First Merger Sub or Second Merger Sub in excess of $25,000 monthly or $250,000 in the aggregate.

 

40

 

 

Section 5.11 Parent Material Contracts. Section 5.11 of the Parent Disclosure Letter sets forth a true, correct and complete list of each “material contract” (as such term is defined in Regulation S-K of the SEC) to which Parent, First Merger Sub or Second Merger Sub is party, including Contracts by and among Parent, First Merger Sub or Second Merger Sub, on the one hand, and any director, officer, stockholder or Affiliate of such Parties (the “Parent Material Contracts”), other than any such Parent Material Contract that is listed as an exhibit to any Parent SEC Report.

 

Section 5.12 Parent Listing. The issued and outstanding Parent Units (other than the Private Placement Units) are registered pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act and listed for trading on the Nasdaq Stock Markets (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “SRACU”. The issued and outstanding shares of Parent Class A Common Stock (other than those underlying the Private Placement Units) are registered pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act and are listed for trading on Nasdaq under the symbol “SRAC”. The issued and outstanding Parent Warrants (other than those underlying the Private Placement Units) are registered pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act and are listed for trading on Nasdaq under the symbol “SRACW”. Parent has not been notified by Nasdaq that it does not comply with any Nasdaq listing rule, which noncompliance is not subject to any compliance extension or ability to remedy, in each case as permitted by the Nasdaq continued listing rules. There is no action or proceeding pending or, to the Knowledge of Parent, threatened in writing against Parent by Nasdaq or the SEC with respect to any intention by such entity to deregister the Parent Units, the shares of Parent Class A Common Stock or Parent Warrants or terminate the listing of the Parent Units, the shares of Parent Class A Common Stock or Parent Warrants on Nasdaq, other than Legal Proceedings where a compliance extension or ability to remedy is available under applicable Law. None of Parent or any of its Affiliates has taken any action in an attempt to intentionally terminate the registration of the Parent Units, the Parent Class A Common Stock or Parent Warrants under the Exchange Act.

 

Section 5.13 PIPE Investment Amount. Parent has delivered to the Company true, accurate and complete copies of each of the subscription agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) entered into by Parent with the PIPE Investors, pursuant to which the PIPE Investors have committed to provide equity financing to Parent in the aggregate amount of $175,000,000 (the “PIPE Investment Amount”). The PIPE Investment Amount, together with the amount in the Trust Account at the Closing, are in the aggregate sufficient to enable Parent to: (a) pay all cash amounts required to be paid by Parent or its Subsidiaries at the Closing under or in connection with this Agreement; and (b) pay any and all fees and expenses of or payable by Parent at the Closing with respect to the Transactions. To Parent’s Knowledge, with respect to each PIPE Investor, the Subscription Agreements are in full force and effect and have not been withdrawn or terminated, or otherwise amended or modified, in any respect, and no withdrawal, termination, amendment or modification is contemplated by Parent, except in each case for such assignments of subscription obligations contemplated by or permitted by the Subscription Agreements. Each Subscription Agreement is a legal, valid and binding obligation of Parent and, to Parent’s Knowledge, each PIPE Investor, subject to the Remedies Exception. Except as set forth on Section 5.13 of the Parent Disclosure Letter, there are no other agreements, side letters, or arrangements between Parent and any PIPE Investor relating to any Subscription Agreement, that could affect the obligation of the PIPE Investors to contribute to Parent the applicable portion of the PIPE Investment Amount set forth in the Subscription Agreements, and, as of the date hereof, Parent does not know of any facts or circumstances that would reasonably be expected to result in any of the conditions set forth in any Subscription Agreement not being satisfied, or the PIPE Investment Amount not being available to Parent, on the Closing Date. No event has occurred that, with or without notice, lapse of time or both, would constitute a default or breach on the part of Parent under any material term or condition of any Subscription Agreement and, as of the date hereof, Parent has no reason to believe that it will be unable to satisfy in all material respects on a timely basis any term or condition of closing to be satisfied by it contained in any Subscription Agreement. The Subscription Agreements contain all of the conditions precedent (other than the conditions contained in the other Transaction Agreements) to the obligations of the PIPE Investors to contribute to Parent the applicable portion of the PIPE Investment Amount set forth in the Subscription Agreements on the terms therein.

(b) The Trust Agreement has not been amended or modified and, to the Knowledge of Parent with respect to the Trustee, is valid and in full force and effect and is enforceable in accordance with its terms, except insofar as enforceability may be limited by the Remedies Exception. Parent has performed all material obligations required to be performed by it as of the date hereof under, and complied in all material respects with the terms of the Trust Agreement and is not in breach thereof or default thereunder and there does not exist under the Trust Agreement any event which, with the giving of notice or the lapse of time, would constitute such a breach or default by Parent or, to the Knowledge of Parent, the Trustee. There are no separate Contracts, side letters or other understandings (whether written or unwritten, express or implied) that would cause the description of the Trust Agreement in the Parent SEC Reports to be inaccurate in any material respect or that would entitle any Person (other than (x) stockholders of Parent who elect to redeem their shares of Parent Class A Common Stock pursuant to Parent’s Charter Documents, including pursuant to the Parent Stockholder Redemptions, (y) the underwriters of Parent’s initial public offering with respect to any deferred underwriting compensation and (z) Parent with respect to income earned on the proceeds in the Trust Account in order to pay taxes in accordance with Parent’s Charter Documents) to any portion of the proceeds in the Trust Account. Prior to the Closing, none of the funds held in the Trust Account may be released except: (A) to pay income and franchise taxes from any interest income earned in the Trust Account and Tax obligations; (B) in accordance with the Trust Agreement; and (C) to redeem Parent Class A Common Stock in accordance with the provisions of Parent’s Charter Documents. There are no Legal Proceedings pending or, to the Knowledge of Parent, threatened in writing with respect to the Trust Account. As of the Effective Time, the obligations of Parent to dissolve or liquidate pursuant to Parent’s Charter Documents shall terminate and, as of the Effective Time, Parent shall have no obligation whatsoever pursuant to Parent’s Charter Documents to dissolve and liquidate the assets of Parent by reason of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby. To Knowledge of Parent, as of the date hereof, following the Effective Time, none of Parent’s stockholders shall be entitled to receive any amount from the Trust Account except to the extent such Parent stockholder is exercising a Parent Stockholder Redemption. As of the date hereof, assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Company contained herein and the compliance by the Company with its obligations hereunder, Parent does have any reason to believe that any of the conditions to the use of funds in the Trust Account will not be satisfied or funds available in the Trust Account will not be available to Parent on the Closing Date.

(b) The Company and Parent shall each use its reasonable best efforts to (i) cause the Registration Statement, when filed with the SEC, to comply in all material respects with all legal requirements applicable thereto, (ii) promptly provide responses to the SEC with respect to all comments received on Merger Materials from the SEC, (iii) cause the Registration Statement to be declared effective under the Securities Act as promptly as practicable after such filing and (iv) keep the Registration Statement effective as long as is necessary to consummate the Transactions contemplated hereby. Each of the Company and Parent shall cause the definitive Merger Materials to be mailed to their respective stockholders as of the applicable record date as promptly as practicable (and in any event within four (4) Business Days) following the date upon which the Registration Statement becomes effective. Each party shall furnish all information concerning it and its Affiliates to the other party and provide such other assistance as may be reasonably requested by the other party to be included in the Merger Materials and shall otherwise reasonably assist and cooperate with the other party in the preparation of the Merger Materials and the resolution of any comments received from the SEC. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Company (i) agrees to promptly provide Parent with all information concerning the business, management, operations and financial condition of the Company, in each case, reasonably requested by Parent for inclusion in the Merger Materials and (ii) shall cause the directors, officers and employees of the Company to be reasonably available to, and to provide any documents reasonably requested by, Parent and its counsel in connection with the drafting of the Merger Materials and responding in a timely manner to comments on the Merger Materials from the SEC. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Merger Materials” shall mean the Registration Statement, including the prospectus forming a part thereof, the Consent Solicitation Statement, the Parent Proxy Statement, and any amendments thereto.

 

(c) If any information relating to the Company or Parent, or any of their respective Affiliates, directors or officers, should be discovered by the Company or Parent which is required to be set forth in an amendment or supplement to the Merger Materials so that such document would not include any misstatement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, the party which discovers such information shall promptly notify the other party and an appropriate amendment or supplement describing such information shall be promptly filed with the SEC and, to the extent required by and in compliance with applicable Law, disseminated to the stockholders of the Company and Parent. Parent shall promptly notify the Company of the receipt of any comments from the SEC or the staff of the SEC and of any request by the SEC or the staff of the SEC for amendments or supplements to the Merger Materials or for additional information concerning the Merger Materials or the Mergers and shall, as promptly as practicable after receipt thereof, supply the Company with copies of all written correspondence between it or any of its Representatives, on the one hand, and the SEC or the staff of the SEC, on the other hand, or, if not in writing, a description of such communication, with respect to the Merger Materials or the Mergers. Parent will advise the Company, promptly after Parent receives notice thereof, of the time of effectiveness of the Registration Statement or any supplement or amendment has been filed, of the issuance of a stop order relating thereto or of the suspension of the qualification of the Parent Class A Common Stock issuable in the First Merger, and Parent and the Company will each use its reasonable best efforts to have any such stop order or suspension lifted, reversed or otherwise terminated. No filing of, or amendment or supplement to the Merger Materials, or response to any comments from the SEC or the staff of the SEC relating to the Merger Materials, will be made by Parent without the prior written consent of the Company (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) and without providing the Company a reasonable opportunity to review and comment thereon unless pursuant to a telephone call initiated by the SEC. Parent shall be permitted to make all necessary filings with respect to the Transactions under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and applicable blue sky Laws and the rules and regulations thereunder; provided that, prior to Parent making any such filings, the Company shall be given an opportunity to review and provide comments, which comments Parent will consider in good faith.

Section 7.4 Consent Solicitation Statement; Company Change in Recommendation.

 

(a) As promptly as practicable following the date upon which the Registration Statement becomes effective, the Company shall solicit the Requisite Company Stockholder Approval via written consent in accordance with Section 228 of the DGCL and the Company’s Charter Documents. In connection therewith, prior to the date upon which the Registration Statement becomes effective, the board of directors of the Company shall set a record date for determining the Company Stockholders entitled to provide such written consent. The Company shall use reasonable best efforts to cause the Written Consent Parties to duly execute and deliver stockholder written consents in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit H (the “Stockholder Written Consent”) in respect of the Company Stock beneficially owned by each such Written Consent Party (which represent (i) at least a majority of the outstanding voting power of the Company Stock issued and outstanding (voting as a single class and on an as-converted basis), (ii) at least a majority of the shares of the Company Common Stock issued and outstanding as of the date hereof (voting as a single class) and (iii) at least a majority of the shares of the Company Preferred Stock issued and outstanding (voting as a single class and on an as-converted basis)) in accordance with the Company’s Charter Documents and Section 228 of the DGCL within three (3) Business Days of the Registration Statement becoming effective. As promptly as practicable following the execution and delivery of the Stockholder Written Consents by the Written Consent Parties to the Company, the Company shall deliver to Parent a copy of such Stockholder Written Consent in accordance with Section 11.1. Promptly following the receipt of the Requisite Company Stockholder Approval via the Stockholder Written Consent, the Company will prepare (subject to the reasonable approval of Parent) and deliver to the Company Stockholders who have not executed and delivered the Stockholder Written Consent the notice required by Section 228(e) of the DGCL and include a description of the appraisal rights of the Company’s stockholders available under Section 262 of the DGCL, along with such other information as is required thereunder and pursuant to applicable Law. If any Written Consent Party fails to deliver its Stockholder Written Consent to the Company within three Business Days of the Registration Statement becoming effective (a “Written Consent Failure”), Parent shall have the right to terminate this Agreement as set forth in Section 9.1(i).

 

(b) The Consent Solicitation Statement shall include the Company Recommendation. Neither the board of directors of the Company nor any committee thereof shall: (i) withdraw, modify, amend or qualify (or propose to withdraw, modify, amend or qualify publicly or to any Company Stockholder) the Company Recommendation, or fail to include the Company Recommendation in the Consent Solicitation Statement; (ii) approve, recommend or declare advisable (or publicly propose to do so) any Company Acquisition Proposal; (iii) fail to publicly announce, within ten (10) Business Days after a tender offer or exchange offer relating to the equity securities of the Company (other than the Transactions) shall have been commenced by any third party other than Parent and its Affiliates, a statement disclosing that the board of directors of the Company recommends rejection of such tender or exchange offer (for the avoidance of doubt, the taking of no position or a neutral position by the board of directors of the Company in respect of the acceptance of any such tender offer or exchange offer as of the end of such period shall constitute a failure to publicly announce that the board of directors of the Company recommends rejection of such tender or exchange offer); or (iv) if requested by Parent, fail to issue, within ten (10) Business Days after a Company Acquisition Proposal (other than any tender offer or exchange offer) is publicly announced, a press release reaffirming the Company Recommendation (it being understood that the Company will have no obligation to make such reaffirmation on more than two separate occasions) (any action described in clauses “(i)” through “(iv)” being referred to as a “Company Change in Recommendation”); or (v) cause or permit the Company to enter into any contract, letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, agreement in principle or other understanding contemplating or relating to a Company Acquisition Transaction.

 

(c) Notwithstanding any Company Change in Recommendation, unless this Agreement has been earlier validly terminated in accordance with Section 9.1, the Company shall solicit the Requisite Company Stockholder Approval in accordance with Section 7.4(a), including using reasonable best efforts to cause all Company Stockholders to duly execute and deliver the Stockholder Written Consent, and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to relieve the Company of such obligation.

 

54

 

 

(d) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prohibit the Company, the board of directors of the Company or their Representatives from directing any Person (or the Representative of that Person) who makes a Company Acquisition Proposal to the provisions of this Section 7.4; provided, however, that no such communication or statement that would constitute a Company Change in Recommendation shall be permitted.

 

Section 7.5 Parent Special Meeting; Parent Change in Recommendation.

 

(a) Parent shall, as promptly as practicable following the date upon which the Registration Statement becomes effective, cause a special meeting of its stockholders (the “Parent Special Meeting”) to be duly called and held as soon as reasonably practicable for the purpose of obtaining the Requisite Parent Stockholder Approval and Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to obtain the Requisite Parent Stockholder Approval at the Parent Special Meeting. In connection therewith, promptly following the date upon which the Registration Statement becomes effective, the board of directors of Parent shall set a record date for determining the stockholders of Parent entitled to vote at the Parent Special Meeting. Parent shall comply with Law and all legal requirements applicable to such meeting, including the DGCL, Parent’s Charter Documents and the Exchange Act, including Regulation 14A and Schedule 14A promulgated thereunder, as applicable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Parent shall be entitled to postpone or adjourn the Parent Special Meeting only: (i) to ensure that any supplement or amendment to the Parent Proxy Statement that the board of directors of Parent has reasonably determined in good faith after consultation with Parent’s outside legal counsel is required by applicable Law is disclosed to Parent’s stockholders and for such supplement or amendment to be promptly disseminated to Parent’s stockholders prior to the Parent Special Meeting; (ii) if, as of the time for which the Parent Special Meeting is originally scheduled (as set forth in the Parent Proxy Statement), there are insufficient shares of Parent Common Stock represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business to be conducted at the Parent Special Meeting; or (iii) in order to solicit additional proxies from stockholders for purposes of obtaining the Requisite Parent Stockholder Approval; provided, that (A) in the event of a postponement or adjournment pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) above, the Parent Special Meeting shall be reconvened as promptly as practicable and in any event no later than five (5) Business Days after the date that such matters are resolved and (B) in no event shall the Parent Special Meeting be held later than three (3) Business Days prior to the Outside Date.

 

(b) The Parent Proxy Statement shall include the Parent Recommendation. Neither the board of directors of Parent nor any committee thereof shall: (i) withdraw, modify, amend or qualify (or publicly propose to withdraw, modify, amend or qualify) the Parent Recommendation, or fail to include the Parent Recommendation in the Parent Proxy Statement; (ii) approve, recommend or declare advisable (or publicly propose to do so) any Parent Acquisition Proposal; (iii) fail to publicly announce, within ten (10) Business Days after a tender offer or exchange offer relating to the equity securities of Parent (other than the Transactions) shall have been commenced by any third party (and in no event later than one (1) Business Day prior to the date of the Parent Special Meeting, as it may be postponed or adjourned pursuant to Section 7.5(a)), a statement disclosing that the board of directors of Parent recommends rejection of such tender or exchange offer (for the avoidance of doubt, the taking of no position or a neutral position by the board of directors of Parent in respect of the acceptance of any such tender offer or exchange offer as of the end of such period shall constitute a failure to publicly announce that the board of directors of Parent recommends rejection of such tender or exchange offer); (iv) if requested by the Company, fail to issue, within ten (10) Business Days after a Parent Acquisition Proposal (other than any tender offer or exchange offer) is publicly announced (and in no event later than one (1) Business Day prior to the date of the Parent Special Meeting, as it may be postponed or adjourned pursuant to Section 7.5(a)), a press release reaffirming the Parent Recommendation (any action described in clauses “(i)” through “(iv)” being referred to as a “Parent Change in Recommendation”); or (v) cause or permit Parent to enter into any contract, letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, agreement in principle or other understanding contemplating or relating to a Parent Acquisition Transaction.

 

55

 

 

(c) Notwithstanding any Parent Change in Recommendation, unless this Agreement has been earlier validly terminated in accordance with Section 9.1, the Parent Stockholder Matters shall be submitted to Parent’s stockholders at the Parent Special Meeting for the purpose of obtaining the Requisite Parent Stockholder Approval and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to relieve Parent of such obligation.

 

(d) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prohibit Parent, the board of directors of Parent or their Representatives from (i) taking and disclosing to Parent’s stockholders a position contemplated by Rule 14e-2(a) or Rule 14d-9 promulgated under the Exchange Act or issuing a “stop, look and listen” statement to Parent’s stockholders pursuant to Rule 14d-9(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act pending disclosure of its position thereunder or (ii) directing any Person (or the Representative of that Person) who makes a Parent Acquisition Proposal to the provisions of this Section 7.5; provided, however, that in the case of clause “(ii),” no such communication or statement that would constitute a Parent Change in Recommendation shall be permitted, made or taken.

Each Party will promptly furnish to the other such information and assistance as the other may reasonably request in connection with its preparation of any filing or submission that is necessary under the HSR Act and will use reasonable best efforts to cause the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting periods as soon as practicable, including by requesting early termination of the HSR waiting period. Neither Parent nor the Company shall, and each shall use reasonable best efforts to cause their respective Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly take any action, including, directly or indirectly, acquiring or investing in any Person or acquiring, leasing or licensing any assets, or agreement to do any of the foregoing, if doing so would reasonably be expected to impose any material delay in the obtaining of, or significantly increase the risk of not obtaining, any required approval under the HSR Act. Each Party will promptly provide the other with copies of all substantive written communications (and memoranda setting forth the substance of all substantive oral communications) between each of them, any of their Subsidiaries and their respective agents, representatives and advisors, on the one hand, and any Governmental Entity, on the other hand, with respect to this Agreement or the Transactions.

71

 

 

Section 11.4 Entire Agreement; Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements: (a) constitute the entire agreement among the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof; and (b) other than the rights, at and after the Effective Time, of Persons pursuant to the provisions of Section 7.15 (Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Insurance) and Section 11.14 (No Recourse) (which will be for the benefit of the Persons set forth therein), are not intended to confer upon any other Person other than the Parties any rights or remedies.

 

Section 11.5 Severability. In the event that any term, provision, covenant or restriction of this Agreement, or the application thereof, is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under any present or future Law: (a) such provision will be fully severable; (b) this Agreement will be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof; (c) the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect and will not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance herefrom; and (d) in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there will be added automatically as a part of this Agreement a legal, valid and enforceable provision as similar in terms of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible.

 

Section 11.6 Other Remedies; Specific Performance. Except as otherwise provided herein, prior to the Closing, any and all remedies herein expressly conferred upon a Party will be deemed cumulative with and not exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby, or by law or equity upon such Party, and the exercise by a Party of any one remedy will not preclude the exercise of any other remedy. The Parties agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that each Party shall be entitled to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement in any court of the United States or any state having jurisdiction and immediate injunctive relief to prevent breaches of this Agreement, without the necessity of proving the inadequacy of money damages as a remedy and without bond or other security being required, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity. Each of the Parties hereby acknowledges and agrees that it may be difficult to prove damages with reasonable certainty, that it may be difficult to procure suitable substitute performance, and that injunctive relief and/or specific performance will not cause an undue hardship to the Parties. Each of the Parties hereby further acknowledges that the existence of any other remedy contemplated by this Agreement does not diminish the availability of specific performance of the obligations hereunder or any other injunctive relief. Each Party hereby further agrees that in the event of any action by any other party for specific performance or injunctive relief, it will not assert that a remedy at law or other remedy would be adequate or that specific performance or injunctive relief in respect of such breach or violation should not be available on the grounds that money damages are adequate or any other grounds. Parent acknowledges and agrees that the Company shall be entitled to bring an action for specific enforcement to cause Parent to seek to enforce the provisions of the Subscription Agreements to the fullest extent permissible pursuant to such Subscription Agreements as if it were a party thereto.

 

Section 11.7 Governing Law. This Agreement and the consummation the Transactions, and any action, suit, dispute, controversy or claim arising out of this Agreement and the consummation of the Transactions, or the validity, interpretation, breach or termination of this Agreement and the consummation of the Transactions, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal law of the State of Delaware regardless of the law that might otherwise govern under applicable principles of conflicts of law thereof.

 

72

 

 

Section 11.8 Consent to Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial.

 

(a) Each of the Parties irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware; provided, that if the Court of Chancery of Delaware declines jurisdiction or if subject matter jurisdiction over the matter that is the subject of the Legal Proceeding is vested exclusively in the U.S. federal courts, such Legal Proceeding shall be heard in, and each of the Parties irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware; provided, further, that if the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware declines jurisdiction or if subject matter jurisdiction over the matter that is the subject of the Legal Proceeding is vested exclusively in the Delaware state courts, such Legal Proceeding shall be heard in, and each of the Parties irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of, the Delaware state courts located in Wilmington, Delaware (together with the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware and the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, the “Chosen Courts”) in connection with any matter based upon or arising out of this Agreement, the other Transaction Agreements and the consummation of the Transactions. Each Party and any Person asserting rights as a third-party beneficiary may do so only if he, she or it hereby waives, and shall not assert as a defense in any legal dispute, that: (i) such Person is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the Chosen Courts for any reason; (ii) such Legal Proceeding may not be brought or is not maintainable in the Chosen Courts; (iii) such Person’s property is exempt or immune from execution; (iv) such Legal Proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum; or (v) the venue of such Legal Proceeding is improper. Each Party and any Person asserting rights as a third-party beneficiary hereby agrees not to commence or prosecute any such action, claim, cause of action or suit other than before the Chosen Courts, nor to make any motion or take any other action seeking or intending to cause the transfer or removal of any such action, claim, cause of action or suit to any court other than the Chosen Courts, whether on the grounds of inconvenient forum or otherwise. Each Party hereby consents to service of process in any such proceeding in any manner permitted by laws of the State of Delaware, and further consents to service of process by nationally recognized overnight courier service guaranteeing overnight delivery, or by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, at its address specified pursuant to Section 11.1, and waives and covenants not to assert or plead any objection which they might otherwise have to such manner of service of process. Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Section 11.8, any Party may commence any action, claim, cause of action or suit in a court other than the Chosen Courts solely for the purpose of enforcing an order or judgment issued by the Chosen Courts.

 

(b) TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW WHICH CANNOT BE WAIVED, EACH OF THE PARTIES AND ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY ON ANY CLAIMS OR COUNTERCLAIMS ASSERTED IN ANY LEGAL DISPUTE RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, EACH OTHER TRANSACTION AGREEMENTS AND THE CONSUMMATION OF THE TRANSACTIONS, IN EACH CASE WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING. IF THE SUBJECT MATTER OF ANY SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE IS ONE IN WHICH THE WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL IS PROHIBITED, NO PARTY NOR ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY SHALL ASSERT IN SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE A NONCOMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER TRANSACTION AGREEMENTS AND THE CONSUMMATION OF THE TRANSACTIONS. FURTHERMORE, NO PARTY NOR ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY SHALL SEEK TO CONSOLIDATE ANY SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE WITH A SEPARATE ACTION OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING IN WHICH A JURY TRIAL CANNOT BE WAIVED.

 

73

 

 

Section 11.9 Rules of Construction. Each of the Parties agrees that it has been represented by independent counsel of its choice during the negotiation and execution of this Agreement and each Party hereto and its counsel cooperated in the drafting and preparation of this Agreement and the documents referred to herein and, therefore, waive the application of any law, regulation, holding or rule of construction providing that ambiguities in an agreement or other document will be construed against the Party drafting such agreement or document.

 

Section 11.10 Expenses. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, whether or not the Transactions are consummated, each Party will pay its own costs and expenses incurred in anticipation of, relating to and in connection with the negotiation and execution of this Agreement and the Transaction Agreements and the consummation of the Transactions; provided, that if the Closing shall occur, Parent shall (a) pay or cause to be paid, in accordance with Section 1.4(g), the Company Transaction Costs to the extent not paid by the Company prior to the Closing and (b) pay or cause to be paid, in accordance with Section 1.4(b), any Parent Transaction Costs. For the avoidance of doubt, any payments to be made (or to cause to be made) by Parent pursuant to this Section 11.10 shall be paid only upon consummation of the Mergers and release of proceeds from the Trust Account.

 

Section 11.11 Assignment. No Party may assign, directly or indirectly, including by operation of law, either this Agreement or any of its rights, interests, or obligations hereunder without the prior written approval of the other Parties. Subject to the first sentence of this Section 11.11, this Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

 

Section 11.12 Amendment. This Agreement may be amended by the Parties at any time by execution of an instrument in writing signed on behalf of each of the Parties.

 

Section 11.13 Extension; Waiver. At any time prior to the Closing, Parent (on behalf of itself, First Merger Sub and Second Merger Sub), on the one hand, and the Company (on behalf of itself and the holders of Company Interests) may, to the extent not prohibited by applicable Law: (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the other Party; (b) waive any inaccuracies in the representations and warranties made to the other Party contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto; and (c) waive compliance with any of the agreements or conditions for the benefit of such Party contained herein. Any agreement on the part of a Party to any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such Party. Delay in exercising any right under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right. In the event any provision of any of the other Transaction Agreement in any way conflicts with the provisions of this Agreement (except where a provision therein expressly provides that it is intended to take precedence over this Agreement), this Agreement shall control.

 

Section 11.14 No Recourse. Notwithstanding anything that may be expressed or implied in this Agreement, this Agreement may only be enforced against, and any Legal Proceeding for breach of this Agreement may only be made against, the entities that are expressly identified herein as Parties to this Agreement, and no Released Related Party of a Party shall have any liability for any liabilities or obligations of the Parties for any Legal Proceeding (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) for breach of this Agreement or in respect of any oral representations made or alleged to be made in connection herewith. No Party shall have any right of recovery in respect hereof against any Released Related Party of a Party and no personal liability shall attach to any Released Related Party of a Party through such Party, whether by or through attempted piercing of the corporate veil, by the enforcement of any judgment, fine or penalty or by virtue of any Law or otherwise. The provisions of this Section 11.14 are intended to be for the benefit of, and enforceable by the Released Related Parties of the Parties and each such Person shall be a third-party beneficiary of this Section 11.14. This Section 11.14 shall be binding on all successors and assigns of Parties.

 

74

 

 

Section 11.15 Legal Representation. Parent hereby agrees on behalf of its directors, members, partners, officers, employees and Affiliates (including after the Closing, the Company), and each of their respective successors and assigns (all such parties, the “Waiving Parties”), that Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP (or any successor) may represent the holders of Company Interests or any of their respective directors, members, partners, officers, employees or Affiliates (other than the Company) (collectively, the “Waiving Party Group”), in each case, in connection with any Legal Proceeding or obligation arising out of or relating to this Agreement, any Transaction Agreement or the Transactions, notwithstanding its representation (or any continued representation) of the Company or other Waiving Parties, and each of Parent and the Company on behalf of itself and the Waiving Parties hereby consents thereto and irrevocably waives (and will not assert) any conflict of interest, breach of duty or any other objection arising therefrom or relating thereto. Parent and the Company acknowledge that the foregoing provision applies whether or not Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP provides legal services to the Company after the Closing Date. Each of Parent and the Company, for itself and the Waiving Parties, hereby further irrevocably acknowledges and agrees that all communications, written or oral, between the Company or any member of the Waiving Party Group and its counsel, including Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, made prior to the Closing in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery and performance under, or any dispute or Legal Proceeding arising out of or relating to, this Agreement, any Transaction Agreements or the Transactions, or any matter relating to any of the foregoing, are privileged communications that do not pass to the Company notwithstanding the Mergers, and instead survive, remain with and are controlled by the Waiving Party Group (the “Privileged Communications”), without any waiver thereof. Parent and the Company, together with any of their respective Affiliates, Subsidiaries, successors or assigns, agree that no Person may use or rely on any of the Privileged Communications, whether located in the records or email server of the Company or otherwise (including in the knowledge of the officers and employees of the Company), in any Legal Proceeding against or involving any of the Parties after the Closing, and Parent and the Company agree not to assert that any privilege has been waived as to the Privileged Communications, whether located in the records or email server of the Company or otherwise (including in the knowledge of the officers and employees of the Company).

 

Section 11.16 Disclosure Letters and Exhibits. The Company Disclosure Letter and Parent Disclosure Letter shall each be arranged in separate parts corresponding to the numbered and lettered sections and subsections in this Agreement, and the information disclosed in any numbered or lettered part shall be deemed to relate to and to qualify only the particular provision set forth in the corresponding numbered or lettered Section or subsection of this Agreement, except to the extent that: (a) such information is cross-referenced in another part of the Company Disclosure Letter or Parent Disclosure Letter, as applicable; or (b) it is reasonably apparent on the face of the disclosure (without any independent knowledge on the part of the reader regarding the matter disclosed) that such information qualifies another provision in this Agreement. The specification of any dollar amount in the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement or the inclusion of any specific item in the Company Disclosure Letter and Parent Disclosure Letter is not intended to imply that such amounts (or higher or lower amounts) are or are not material, and no Party shall use the fact of the setting of such amounts or the fact of the inclusion of any such item in the Company Disclosure Letter or Parent Disclosure Letter in any dispute or controversy between the Parties as to whether any obligation, item, or matter not described herein or included in Company Disclosure Letter or the Parent Disclosure Letter is or is not material for purposes of this Agreement. The inclusion of any item in the Company Disclosure Letter or Parent Disclosure Letter shall not be deemed to constitute an acknowledgment by the Company or Parent, as applicable, that the matter is required to be disclosed by the terms of this Agreement, nor shall such disclosure in and of itself be deemed (a) an admission of any breach or violation of any Contract or Law, (b) an admission of any liability or obligation to any third party, or (c) to establish a standard of materiality.

In connection therewith, and in consideration of the foregoing and the mutual representations, warranties and covenants, and subject to the conditions, set forth herein, and intending to be legally bound hereby, each of the Investor and SRAC acknowledges and agrees as follows:

 

1. Subscription. The Investor hereby irrevocably subscribes for and agrees to purchase from SRAC the number of Shares set forth on the signature page of this Subscription Agreement on the terms and subject to the conditions provided for herein. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that SRAC reserves the right to accept or reject the Investor’s subscription for the Shares for any reason or for no reason, in whole or in part, at any time prior to its acceptance, and the same shall be deemed to be accepted by SRAC only when this Subscription Agreement is signed by a duly authorized person by or on behalf of SRAC.

The Investor is able to sustain a complete loss on its investment in the Shares, has no need for liquidity with respect to its investment in the Shares and has no reason to anticipate any change in circumstances, financial or otherwise, which may cause or require any sale or distribution of all or any part of the Shares.

 

h. In making its decision to purchase the Shares, the Investor has relied solely upon independent investigation made by the Investor. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Investor has not relied on any statements or other information provided by or on behalf of either Placement Agent or any of their respective affiliates or any control persons, officers, directors, employees, partners, agents or representatives of any of the foregoing concerning SRAC, the Company, the Transaction, the Transaction Agreement, this Subscription Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, the Shares or the offer and sale of the Shares.

 

i. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that no federal or state agency has passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of the Shares or made any findings or determination as to the fairness of this investment.

 

j. The Investor, if not an individual, has been duly formed or incorporated and is validly existing and is in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of formation or incorporation, with power and authority to enter into, deliver and perform its obligations under this Subscription Agreement.

The signature on this Subscription Agreement is genuine, and the signatory, if the Investor is an individual, has legal competence and capacity to execute the same or, if the Investor is not an individual, the signatory has been duly authorized to execute the same, and this Subscription Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Investor, enforceable against the Investor in accordance with its terms except as may be limited or otherwise affected by (i) bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium or other laws relating to or affecting the rights of creditors generally, and (ii) principles of equity, whether considered at law or equity.

 

l. The Investor is not (i) a person or entity named on the List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons administered by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) or in any Executive Order issued by the President of the United States and administered by OFAC (“OFAC List”), or a person or entity prohibited by any OFAC sanctions program, (ii) owned, directly or indirectly, or controlled by, or acting on behalf of, one or more persons that are named on the OFAC List; (iii) organized, incorporated, established, located, resident or born in, or a citizen, national or the government, including any political subdivision, agency or instrumentality thereof, of, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, the Crimea region of Ukraine or any other country or territory embargoed or subject to substantial trade restrictions by the United States, (iv) a Designated National as defined in the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, 31 C.F.R.

Section 5311 et seq.), as amended by the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 and its implementing regulations (collectively, the “BSA/PATRIOT Act”), the Investor maintains policies and procedures reasonably designed to comply with applicable obligations under the BSA/PATRIOT Act. If the Investor is an entity, the Investor also represents and warrants that it maintains policies and procedures reasonably designed to ensure compliance with OFAC-administered sanctions programs, including for the screening of its investors against the OFAC sanctions programs, including the OFAC List. Investor further represents and warrants that, to the extent required by applicable law, the Investor maintains policies and procedures reasonably designed to ensure that the funds held by the Investor and used to purchase the Shares were legally derived.

 

m. The Investor’s acquisition and holding of the Shares will not constitute or result in a non-exempt prohibited transaction under Section 406 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), Section 4975 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), or any other federal, state, local, non-U.S. or other laws or regulations that are similar to such provisions of ERISA or the Code (collectively, “Similar Laws”).

 

n. If Investor is, or is acting (directly or indirectly) on behalf of, an employee benefit plan that is subject to Title I of ERISA, a plan, individual retirement account or other arrangement that is subject to Section 4975 of the Code or an employee benefit plan that is a governmental plan (as defined in Section 3(32) of ERISA), a church plan (as defined in Section 3(33) of ERISA), a non-U.S. plan (as described in Section 4(b)(4) of ERISA) or other plan that is not subject to the foregoing but may be subject to provisions under any Similar Law, or an entity whose underlying assets are considered to include “plan assets” of any such plan, account or arrangement (each, a “Plan”) subject to the fiduciary or prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, then the Investor represents and warrants that (i) it has notified SRAC in writing of its status as a Plan and will provide such additional information as may be requested by the Company in connection therewith, (ii) none of SRAC, the Company nor any of their respective employees, representatives or affiliates (the “Transaction Parties”) has acted as the Plan’s fiduciary with respect to its decision to acquire and hold the Shares, and (iii) none of the Transaction Parties has provided any advice or recommendation, including, without limitation, in a fiduciary capacity, with respect to its decision to acquire and hold the Shares.

The Investor hereby agrees that it shall notify SRAC promptly in writing in the event a Disqualification Event becomes applicable to the Investor or any of its Rule 506(d) Related Parties at or prior to the Closing, except, if applicable, for a Disqualification Event as to which Rule 506(d)(2)(ii) or (iii) or (d)(3) is applicable.

7. Registration Rights.

 

a. In the event that the Shares are not registered in connection with the consummation of the Transaction, SRAC agrees that, within thirty (30) calendar days after the Closing Date, SRAC will file with the SEC (at its sole cost and expense) a registration statement registering the resale of the Shares (the “Registration Statement”), and it shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof, but no later than the earlier of (i) the 60th calendar day following the filing date (or the 90th calendar day if the SEC notifies SRAC (orally or in writing) that it will “review” the Registration Statement) and (ii) the 5th business day after the date SRAC is notified (orally or in writing) by the SEC that the Registration Statement will not be “reviewed” or will not be subject to further review (such earlier date, the “Effectiveness Date”); provided, however, that if such date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or other day that the SEC is closed for business, such date shall be extended to the next business day on which the SEC is open for business. SRAC agrees to cause such Registration Statement, or another shelf registration statement that includes the Shares to be sold pursuant to this Subscription Agreement, to remain effective until the earliest of (a) the second anniversary of the Effectiveness Date, (b) the date on which the Investor ceases to hold any Shares issued pursuant to this Subscription Agreement, and (c) the first date on which the Investor is able to sell all of its Shares issued pursuant to this Subscription Agreement (or shares received in exchange therefor) under Rule 144 of the Securities Act without limitation as to the amount of such securities that may be sold. The Investor agrees to disclose its ownership to SRAC upon request to assist it in making the determination described above. SRAC may amend the Registration Statement so as to convert the Registration Statement to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 at such time after SRAC becomes eligible to use such Form S-3. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that SRAC may suspend the use of any such registration statement if it determines that in order for such registration statement not to contain a material misstatement or omission, an amendment thereto would be needed to include information that would at that time not otherwise be required in a current, quarterly, or annual report under the Exchange Act; provided, that, (i) SRAC shall not so suspend the use of the Registration Statement for a period of more than sixty (60) consecutive days, (ii) SRAC may suspend the use of the Registration Statement hereunder only once in any twelve (12)-month period and (iii) SRAC shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make such Registration Statement available for the sale by the Investors of the Shares as soon as practicable thereafter.

 

b. If the SEC prevents SRAC from including any or all of the Shares proposed to be registered for resale under the Registration Statement due to limitations on the use of Rule 415 of the Securities Act for the resale of the Shares by the applicable shareholders or otherwise, (i) such Registration Statement shall register for resale such number of Shares which is equal to the maximum number of Shares as is permitted by the SEC and (ii) the number of Shares to be registered for each selling shareholder named in the Registration Statement shall be reduced pro rata among all such selling shareholders. In no event shall the Investor be identified as a statutory underwriter in the Registration Statement unless requested by the SEC; provided, that if the SEC requests that the Investor be identified as a statutory underwriter in the Registration Statement, the Investor will have an opportunity to withdraw from the Registration Statement.

 

c. SRAC’s obligations to include the Shares issued pursuant to this Subscription Agreement for resale in the Registration Statement are contingent upon the Investor furnishing in writing to SRAC such information regarding the Investor, the securities of SRAC held by the Investor and the intended method of disposition of such Shares, which shall be limited to non-underwritten public offerings, as shall be reasonably requested by SRAC to effect the registration of such Shares, and shall execute such documents in connection with such registration as SRAC may reasonably request that are customary of a selling stockholder in similar situations.

 

d. SRAC shall, notwithstanding any termination of this Subscription Agreement, indemnify, defend and hold harmless Investor (to the extent a seller under the Registration Statement), the officers, directors and agents of Investor, and each person who controls Investor (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, from and against any and all out-of-pocket losses, claims, damages, liabilities, costs (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) and expenses (collectively, “Losses”), as incurred, that arise out of or are based upon (i) any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Registration Statement, any prospectus included in the Registration Statement or any form of prospectus or in any amendment or supplement thereto or in any preliminary prospectus, or arising out of or relating to any omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of any prospectus or form of prospectus or supplement thereto, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, or (ii) any violation or alleged violation by SRAC of the Securities Act, Exchange Act or any state securities law or any rule or regulation thereunder, in connection with the performance of its obligations under this Section 7, except to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statements, alleged untrue statements, omissions or alleged omissions are based upon information regarding Investor furnished in writing to SRAC by Investor expressly for use therein or Investor has omitted a material fact from such information or otherwise violated the Securities Act, Exchange Act or any state securities law or any rule or regulation thereunder; provided, however, that the indemnification contained in this Section 7 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any Losses if such settlement is effected without the consent of SRAC (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), nor shall SRAC be liable for any Losses to the extent they arise out of or are based upon a violation which occurs (A) in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished by Investor, (B) in connection with any failure of such person to deliver or cause to be delivered a prospectus made available by SRAC in a timely manner or (C) in connection with any offers or sales effected by or on behalf of Investor in violation of Section 7(d) hereof. SRAC shall notify Investor promptly of the institution, threat or assertion of any proceeding arising from or in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Section 7 of which SRAC is aware. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of an indemnified party and shall survive the transfer of the Shares by Investor.

e. Investor shall indemnify and hold harmless SRAC, its directors, officers, agents and employees, and each person who controls SRAC (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, from and against all Losses, as incurred, (i) arising out of or based upon any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement, any prospectus included in the Registration Statement, or any form of prospectus, or in any amendment or supplement thereto or in any preliminary prospectus, or (ii) arising out of or relating to any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of any prospectus, or any form of prospectus or supplement thereto, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, with respect to (i) and/or (ii), to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue or alleged untrue statements or omissions or alleged omissions are based upon information regarding Investor furnished in writing to SRAC by Investor expressly for use therein (and for the avoidance of doubt, not to the extent based upon information regarding any other investor that is party to any of the other subscription agreements related to the private placement of the Shares); provided, however, that the indemnification contained in this Section 7(e) shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any Losses if such settlement is effected without the consent of Investor (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). In no event shall the liability of Investor be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net proceeds received by Investor upon the sale of the Shares giving rise to such indemnification obligation. Investor shall notify SRAC promptly of the institution, threat or assertion of any proceeding arising from or in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Section 7(e) of which Investor is aware. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of an indemnified party and shall survive the transfer of the Shares by Investor.

 

f. With a view to making available to the Investor the benefits of Rule 144 of the Securities Act that may at any time following the Closing Date permit the Investor to sell its Shares to the public without registration. SRAC agrees, until the second anniversary of the Effectiveness Date, to:

 

(i) make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144 of the Securities Act;

 

(ii) file with the SEC in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of SRAC under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act for so long as SRAC remains subject to such requirements and the filing of such reports and other documents is required for the applicable provisions of Rule 144 of the Securities Act; and

 

(iii) furnish to the Investor so long as it owns its Shares, within two (2) business days following its receipt of a written request therefor from the Investor, (x) a written statement by SRAC, if true, that it has complied with the reporting requirements of Rule 144 of the Securities Act, the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, (y) a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of SRAC filed with the SEC and such other reports and documents so filed with the SEC by SRAC and (z) such other information as may be reasonably requested in writing to permit the Investor to sell such securities pursuant to Rule 144 without registration (to the extent readily available and consistent with SRAC’s internal policies and procedures).

 

8. Termination. This Subscription Agreement shall terminate and be void and of no further force and effect, and all rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall terminate without any further liability on the part of any party in respect thereof, upon the earlier to occur of (a) such date and time as the Transaction Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms without being consummated, (b) upon the mutual written agreement of each of the parties hereto and the Company to terminate this Subscription Agreement, (c) 30 days after the Outside Date (as defined in the Transaction Agreement), if the Closing has not occurred by such date, or (d) by written notice of the Investor to SRAC in the event the Transaction Agreement is amended, supplemented or otherwise modified after the date hereof in a manner that materially adversely affects the Investor (the termination events described in clauses (a)–(d) above, collectively, the “Termination Events”); provided that nothing herein will relieve any party from liability for any willful breach hereof prior to the time of termination, and each party will be entitled to any remedies at law or in equity to recover losses, liabilities or damages arising from any such willful breach. SRAC shall notify the Investor in writing of the termination of the Transaction Agreement promptly after the termination of such agreement. Upon the occurrence of any Termination Event, this Subscription Agreement shall be void and of no further effect and any monies paid by the Investor to SRAC in connection herewith shall promptly (and in any event within one business day) following the Termination Event be returned to the Investor.

9. Trust Account Waiver. The Investor acknowledges that SRAC is a blank check company with the powers and privileges to effect a merger, asset acquisition, reorganization or similar business combination involving SRAC and one or more businesses or assets. The Investor further acknowledges that, as described in SRAC’s prospectus relating to its initial public offering dated November 7, 2019 (the “Prospectus”) available at www.sec.gov, substantially all of SRAC’s assets consist of the cash proceeds of SRAC’s initial public offering and private placement of its securities, and substantially all of those proceeds have been deposited in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) for the benefit of SRAC, its public shareholders and the underwriters of SRAC’s initial public offering. Except with respect to interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account that may be released to SRAC to pay its tax obligations, if any, the cash in the Trust Account may be disbursed only for the purposes set forth in the Prospectus. For and in consideration of SRAC entering into this Subscription Agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Investor hereby irrevocably waives any and all right, title and interest, or any claim of any kind it has or may have in the future, in or to any monies held in the Trust Account, and agrees not to seek recourse against the Trust Account, regardless of whether such claim arises as a result of, in connection with or relating in any way to, this Subscription Agreement or any other matter, and regardless of whether such claim arises based on contract, tort, equity or any other theory of liability (the “Released Claims”); provided, that the Released Claims shall not include any claims that the Investor may have solely in the Investor’s capacity as a record or beneficial holder of any Shares other than the Shares purchased by it pursuant to this Subscription Agreement.

 

10. Miscellaneous.

 

a. Neither this Subscription Agreement nor any rights that may accrue to the parties hereunder (other than the Shares acquired hereunder, if any) may be transferred or assigned without the prior written consent of each of the other parties hereto; provided that this Subscription Agreement and any of the Investor’s rights and obligations hereunder may be assigned to any fund or account managed by the same investment manager as the Investor or by an affiliate of such investment manager without the prior consent of SRAC; provided further that (x) prior to such assignment any such assignee shall agree in writing to be bound by the terms hereof and (y) no such assignment shall relieve the Investor of its obligations hereunder if any such assignee fails to fully perform such obligations.

 

b. SRAC may request from the Investor such additional information as SRAC may reasonably deem necessary to register the resale of the Shares and evaluate the eligibility of the Investor to acquire the Shares, and the Investor shall provide such information as may reasonably be requested to the extent readily available and to the extent consistent with its internal policies and procedures; provided that SRAC expressly agrees to keep any such information provided by the Investor confidential. The Investor acknowledges that SRAC may file a copy of this Subscription Agreement with the SEC as an exhibit to a periodic report or a registration statement of SRAC.

 

c. The Investor acknowledges that SRAC, the Company, the Placement Agents and others will rely on the acknowledgments, understandings, agreements, representations and warranties contained in this Subscription Agreement. Prior to the Closing, each party hereto agrees to promptly notify the other party hereto if any of the acknowledgments, understandings, agreements, representations and warranties set forth herein with respect to it are no longer accurate. Each party hereto further acknowledges and agrees that each purchase by the Investor, and each sale by SRAC, of Shares will constitute a reaffirmation of their respective acknowledgments, understandings, agreements, representations and warranties herein (as modified by any such notice) as of the time of such purchase and sale.

SRAC, the Company and the Placement Agents are each entitled to rely upon this Subscription Agreement and each is irrevocably authorized to produce this Subscription Agreement or a copy hereof to any interested party in any administrative or legal proceeding or official inquiry with respect to the matters covered hereby to the extent required by law or regulatory bodies; provided, however, that the foregoing clause of this Section 10(d) shall not give the Company or the Placement Agents any rights other than those expressly set forth herein and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing and for the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall the Company be entitled to rely on any of the representations and warranties of SRAC set forth in this Subscription Agreement.

No failure or delay of either party in exercising any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such right or power, or any course of conduct, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the parties hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have hereunder.

 

g. This Subscription Agreement (including the schedule hereto) constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all other prior agreements, understandings, representations and warranties, both written and oral, among the parties, with respect to the subject matter hereof. Except as set forth in Section 8, Section 10(c), Section 10(d), Section 10(f), this Section 10(g), the last sentence of Section 10(k) and Section 11 with respect to the persons specifically referenced therein, this Subscription Agreement shall not confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties hereto, and their respective successor and assigns, and the parties hereto acknowledge that such persons so referenced are third party beneficiaries of this Subscription Agreement for the purposes of, and to the extent of, the rights granted to them, if any, pursuant to the applicable provisions.

i. If any provision of this Subscription Agreement shall be adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Subscription Agreement shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby and shall continue in full force and effect.

 

j. This Subscription Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts (including by facsimile or electronic mail or in .pdf) and by different parties in separate counterparts, with the same effect as if all parties hereto had signed the same document. All counterparts so executed and delivered shall be construed together and shall constitute one and the same agreement.

 

k. The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Subscription Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this Subscription Agreement, without posting a bond or undertaking and without proof of damages, to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Subscription Agreement, this being in addition to any other remedy to which such party is entitled at law, in equity, in contract, in tort or otherwise. The right to specific enforcement shall include the right of each party hereto to cause the other party hereto to cause the transactions contemplated hereby to be consummated on the terms and subject to the conditions and limitations set forth in this Subscription Agreement.

Each party hereto and any person asserting rights as a third party beneficiary may do so only if he, she or it irrevocably agrees that any action, suit or proceeding between or among the parties hereto, whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, arising in connection with any disagreement, dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Subscription Agreement or any related document or any of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby (“Legal Dispute”) shall be brought only to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Delaware or the federal courts located in the State of Delaware, and each party hereto hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such courts (and of the appropriate appellate courts therefrom) in any such suit, action or proceeding and irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding in any such court or that any such suit, action or proceeding that is brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. During the period a Legal Dispute that is filed in accordance with this Section 10(m) is pending before a court, all actions, suits or proceedings with respect to such Legal Dispute or any other Legal Dispute, including any counterclaim, cross-claim or interpleader, shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of such court.

A final judgment in any action, suit or proceeding described in this Section 10(m) following the expiration of any period permitted for appeal and subject to any stay during appeal shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable Laws. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY MAY DO SO ONLY IF HE, SHE OR IT IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY ON ANY CLAIMS OR COUNTERCLAIMS ASSERTED IN ANY LEGAL DISPUTE RELATING TO THIS SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY AND FOR ANY COUNTERCLAIM RELATING THERETO. IF THE SUBJECT MATTER OF ANY SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE IS ONE IN WHICH THE WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL IS PROHIBITED, NO PARTY HERETO NOR ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY SHALL ASSERT IN SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE A NONCOMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. FURTHERMORE, NO PARTY HERETO NOR ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY SHALL SEEK TO CONSOLIDATE ANY SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE WITH A SEPARATE ACTION OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING IN WHICH A JURY TRIAL CANNOT BE WAIVED.

5. General Waiver and Release.

 

(a) Effective as of, and contingent upon, the consummation of the Closing, the Company Stockholder, on behalf of itself and any of its heirs, executors, beneficiaries, administrators, successors, assigns, controlled Affiliates and any other Person or entity claiming by, through or under any of the foregoing (each, a “Releasor”), hereby forever, unconditionally and irrevocably acquits, remises, discharges and releases, effective as of the Closing, the Company and its Affiliates (including, after the Closing, Parent, First Merger Sub, Second Merger Sub, the Surviving Entity and each of their respective Affiliates), each of their respective officers, directors, equityholders, employees, partners, trustees and Representatives, and each successor and assign of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all claims, demands, charges, complaints, causes of action, damages, costs, expenses, obligations, losses, rights, suits, accountings, orders, judgments, obligations, agreements and liabilities of every kind and character whatsoever, whether accrued or fixed, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, suspected or unsuspected or determined or determinable, and whether at law or in equity, that any Releasee may have to such Releasor (or that any Releasor may have against any Releasee), in any capacity, whether directly or derivatively through another Person, arising contemporaneously with or prior to the Closing; provided that liabilities and obligations acquitted, remised, discharged and released pursuant to this Section 5(a) (collectively, the “Released Claims”) shall not include (A) any rights of the Releasors under this Agreement, the Merger Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements, (B) if such Releasor is an employee of the Company, rights to earned but unpaid wages or other compensation or benefits and rights under any written employment agreements with or benefit plans of the Company in existence as of the date hereof, (C) any rights to indemnification, exculpation and/or advancement of expenses (whether pursuant to the Charter Documents of the Company, any insurance policy or any other agreement entered into with the Company) for serving as an officer, director, manager, agent or employee of the Company, in each case existing prior to Closing, or (D) any rights as a third-party beneficiary to indemnification, exculpation and/or advancement of expenses set forth in the Indemnification Agreement by and between the Company and Dakin Sloss, dated November 1, 2018, in each case existing prior to Closing.

(b) Effective as of, and contingent upon, the consummation of the Closing, the Company Stockholder, on behalf of itself and each Releasor, knowingly and voluntarily waives and releases any and all rights and benefits he, she or it may not have, or in the future may have, under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code (“Section 1542”) or any analogous state law or federal law, which reads as follows:

 

“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”

 

The Company Stockholder, on behalf of itself and each Releasor, understands that Section 1542, or a comparable statute, rule, regulation or order of another jurisdiction, gives such the Company Stockholder the right not to release existing claims of which the Company Stockholder is not aware, unless the Company Stockholder voluntarily chooses to waive this right. Having been so apprised, the Company Stockholder, on behalf of itself and each Releasor, nevertheless hereby voluntarily elects to and does waive the rights described in Section 1542, or such other comparable statute, rule, regulation or order, and elects to assume all risks for claims that exist, existed or may hereafter exist in its favor, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, arising out of or related to claims or other matters purported to be released pursuant to this Section 5, in each case, effective at the Closing. The Company Stockholder, on behalf of itself and each Releasor, acknowledges and agrees that the foregoing waiver is an essential and material term of the release provided pursuant to this Section 5 and that, without such waiver, Parent would not have agreed to the terms of this Agreement.

 

6. Covenants.

 

(a) Further Assurances. From time to time and without additional consideration, the Company Stockholder shall execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, such additional transfers, assignments, endorsements, proxies, consents and other instruments, and shall take such further actions as Parent may reasonably request for the purpose of carrying out and furthering the intent of this Agreement. The Company Stockholder further agrees not to commence or participate in, and to take all actions necessary to opt out of any class in any class action with respect to, any action or claim, derivative or otherwise, against Parent, Parent’s Affiliates, the Sponsor, the Company, the Surviving Entity or any of their respective successors and assigns relating to the negotiation, execution or delivery of this Agreement, the Merger Agreement (including the Per Share Company Stock Consideration) or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby.

 

(b) Acknowledgment. The Company Stockholder acknowledges and agrees that the Company Stockholder is entering into this Agreement On the Company Stockholder’s own free will and not under any duress or undue influence. THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER has entered into this Agreement freely and without coercion, THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER has been advised by PARENT to consult with counsel of THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER’s choice with regard to the execution of this Agreement and THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER’s covenants hereunder, THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER has had an adequate opportunity to consult with such counsel and either so consulted or freely determined in THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER’s own discretion not to so consult with such counsel, THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER understands that PARENT haS been advised by counsel, and THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER has read this Agreement AND THE MERGER AGREEMENT and fully and completely understands this Agreement AND THE MERGER AGREEMENT and each of THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER’s representations, warranties, covenants and other agreements hereunder AND THEREUNDER. This Agreement shall be interpreted and construed as having been drafted jointly by THE COMPANY STOCKHOLDER and PARENT and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party hereto by virtue of the authorship of any or all of the provisions of this Agreement.

(c) Consent to Terminate Certain Agreements. The Company Stockholder hereby consents to the termination, contingent upon and automatically effective as of the Closing, of all Contracts set forth on Section 7.18 of the Company Disclosure Letter (other than any indemnification agreements between any D&O Indemnified Party and the Company).

 

(d) Disclosure. The Company Stockholder hereby authorizes the Company and Parent to publish and disclose in any announcement or disclosure required by the SEC the Company Stockholder’s identity and ownership of the Equity Securities and the nature of the Company Stockholder’s obligations under this Agreement; provided, that prior to any such publication or disclosure the Company and Parent have provided the Company Stockholder with an opportunity to review and comment upon such announcement or disclosure, which comments the Company and Parent will consider in good faith.

Each party hereto hereby and any Person asserting rights as a third party beneficiary may do so only if he, she or it irrevocably agrees that any Legal Proceeding shall be brought only to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or, if such court declines to exercise jurisdiction, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, and each party hereto hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such courts (and of the appropriate appellate courts therefrom) in any such suit, action or proceeding and irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding in any such court or that any such suit, action or proceeding that is brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. During the period a Legal Proceeding that is filed in accordance with this Section 7(j) is pending before a court, all actions, suits or proceedings with respect to such Legal Proceeding or any other Legal Proceeding, including any counterclaim, cross-claim or interpleader, shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of such court. Each party hereto and any Person asserting rights as a third party beneficiary may do so only if he, she or it hereby waives, and shall not assert as a defense in any Legal Proceeding, that (a) such party is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the above named courts for any reason, (b) such action, suit or proceeding may not be brought or is not maintainable in such court, (c) such party’s property is exempt or immune from execution, (d) such action, suit or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum, or (e) the venue of such action, suit or proceeding is improper. A final judgment in any action, suit or proceeding described in this Section 7(j) following the expiration of any period permitted for appeal and subject to any stay during appeal shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable Laws. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY MAY DO SO ONLY IF HE, SHE OR IT IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY ON ANY CLAIMS OR COUNTERCLAIMS ASSERTED IN ANY LEGAL DISPUTE RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY AND FOR ANY COUNTERCLAIM RELATING THERETO. IF THE SUBJECT MATTER OF ANY SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE IS ONE IN WHICH THE WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL IS PROHIBITED, NO PARTY HERETO NOR ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY SHALL ASSERT IN SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE A NONCOMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. FURTHERMORE, NO PARTY HERETO NOR ANY PERSON ASSERTING RIGHTS AS A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY SHALL SEEK TO CONSOLIDATE ANY SUCH LEGAL DISPUTE WITH A SEPARATE ACTION OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING IN WHICH A JURY TRIAL CANNOT BE WAIVED.

 

(k) Specific Performance. The Company Stockholder agrees that irreparable damage would occur for which monetary damages, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy in the event that the Company Stockholder does not perform its obligations under the provisions of this Agreement in accordance with its specified terms or otherwise breach such provisions. The Company Stockholder acknowledges and agrees that Parent shall therefore be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof in any action instituted in any court in the United States or in any state or province having jurisdiction over the parties hereto and the matter in addition to any other remedy to which they may be entitled pursuant hereto, and that such explicit rights of specific enforcement are an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without such rights, Parent would not have entered into this Agreement. The Company Stockholder agrees that it will not oppose the granting of an injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief on the basis that Parent have an adequate monetary or other remedy at law. The Company Stockholder acknowledges and agrees that if Parent seeks an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement or to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement, Parent shall not be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with any such order or injunction.

 

(l) No Ownership Interest. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to vest in Parent any direct or indirect ownership or incidence of ownership of or with respect to the Equity Securities of the Company Stockholder. All rights, ownership and economic benefits (but excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any voting rights to the extent described herein) of and relating to the Equity Securities of the Company Stockholder shall remain fully vested in and belong to the Company Stockholder, and Parent shall have no authority to direct the Company Stockholder in the voting or disposition of any of the Stockholder’s Equity Securities, except as otherwise provided herein.

 

(m) Capacity as a Stockholder. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Company Stockholder signs this Agreement solely in the Company Stockholder’s capacity as a stockholder of the Company, and not in any other capacity (including as an officer or director of the Company) and this Agreement shall not limit or otherwise affect the actions of the Company Stockholder (or any affiliate, employee or designee of the Company Stockholder) in his or her capacity, if applicable, as an officer or director of the Company or any other Person.

EXECUTION

Stable Road Acquisition Corp.

Venice, California 90291

 

RE: Surrender and Potential Forfeiture of Parent Class B Common Stock

 

Reference is made to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), to be dated as of the date hereof, by and among Momentus Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), Stable Road Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), Project Marvel First Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent, and Project Marvel Second Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. This letter agreement (this “Letter Agreement”) is being entered into and delivered by Parent, SRC-NI Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Sponsor”), and SRAC PIPE Partners LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SRAC Partners”) in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Merger Agreement.

 

In consideration of the foregoing and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Parent and Sponsor hereby agree as follows:

 

1. Sponsor represents and warrants that (i) it holds 4,136,029 of the issued and outstanding shares of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Parent (the “Parent Class B Common Stock”) and (ii) SRAC Partners holds 176,471 of the issued and outstanding shares of Parent Class B Common Stock, as of the date of this Letter Agreement. As of the date hereof, there are 4,312,500 shares of Parent Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding.

 

2. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of each of the conditions to Closing set forth in Sections 8.1 and 8.3 of the Merger Agreement, immediately prior to and conditioned upon the consummation of the Closing, Sponsor shall surrender 1,437,500 shares of Parent Class B Common Stock (the “Sponsor Contingent Closing Shares”) if, and only if, (i) the amount in the Trust Account (for the avoidance of doubt, prior to giving effect to the Parent Stockholder Redemptions and the payment of any Parent Transaction Costs), minus (ii) the aggregate amount of cash proceeds that will be required to satisfy the Parent Stockholder Redemptions (the result of clauses (i) minus (ii), the “Remaining Trust Amount”), is less than $100,000,000, in which event the Sponsor Contingent Closing Shares will be cancelled by Parent for no consideration. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Remaining Trust Amount is equal to or greater than $100,000,000, then the Sponsor Contingent Closing Shares shall not be subject to forfeiture, cancellation or vesting.

 

 

 

 

3. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of each of the conditions to Closing set forth in Sections 8.1 and 8.3 of the Merger Agreement, effective immediately prior to and conditioned upon the consummation of the Closing, Sponsor and SRAC Partners each hereby waive any and all rights they have or will have under Section 4.3(b)(ii) of Parent’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to receive, with respect to each share of Parent Class B Common Stock held by Sponsor or SRAC Partners, more than one (1) share of Parent Class A Common Stock upon automatic conversion of such shares of Parent Class B Common Stock in accordance with Parent’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation in connection with the consummation of the Transactions. Without limitation of the foregoing, upon the consummation of the Transactions, Sponsor and SRAC Partners each hereby acknowledge and agree that pursuant to Section 4.3(b)(i) of Parent’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, each share of Parent Class B Common Stock held by either Sponsor or SRAC Partners shall automatically convert into one (1) share of Parent Class A Common Stock.

 

4. Upon and subject to the Closing, 1,437,500 shares of Parent Class A Common Stock owned by Sponsor (the “Sponsor Earnout Shares”) shall become subject to potential forfeiture upon the terms set forth in Article III of the Merger Agreement, such that such Sponsor Earnout Shares shall be forfeited if, and only if, the applicable vesting condition(s) set forth in Article III of the Merger Agreement are not satisfied prior to the expiration of the Earnout Period. If all or any portion of the Sponsor Earnout Shares vest in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, any restrictive legends that have been placed on the Sponsor Earnout Shares, other than those, if any, required by applicable securities laws, shall be removed (and Parent hereby agrees to promptly cause the removal of such restrictive legends that have been placed on the applicable portion of the Sponsor Earnout Shares), and such vested Sponsor Earnout Shares shall not thereafter be subject to forfeiture, cancellation or additional vesting.

 

5. During the period commencing on the date hereof and ending on the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof, if, and as often as, the outstanding shares of Parent Class A Common Stock or Parent Class B Common Stock shall have been changed into a different number of shares or a different class, by reason of any dividend, subdivision, reclassification, recapitalization, split, combination or exchange, or any similar event shall have occurred, then the number of Sponsor Contingent Closing Shares and Sponsor Earnout Shares to be surrendered or forfeited pursuant to Section 2 or Section 4 of this Letter Agreement (and, in the case of the Sponsor Earnout Shares, Article III of the Merger Agreement), will in each case be equitably adjusted to reflect such change.

 

6. Holders of the Sponsor Earnout Shares shall be entitled to vote such Sponsor Earnout Shares and receive dividends and other distributions in respect thereof prior to the vesting of such Sponsor Earnout Shares in accordance with the terms herein; provided, that any such dividends and other distributions in respect of the Sponsor Earnout Shares that are subject to vesting pursuant to the terms herein at the time of payment of such dividend or other distribution shall be set aside by Parent and shall be paid to the holder of such Sponsor Earnout Shares promptly following the vesting thereof (as applicable).

7. Parent, Sponsor and to the extent applicable, SRAC Partners are subject to the terms and conditions of that certain letter agreement dated November 7, 2019 in connection with the initial public offering of Parent (the “Prior Letter Agreement”). The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the Prior Letter Agreement shall survive the consummation of the Transactions in accordance with its terms, and Sponsor shall comply with, and fully perform all of its obligations, covenants and agreements set forth in, the Prior Letter Agreement; provided, that the parties agree that (and the Company, by its acceptance of this Letter Agreement, acknowledges that) (i) the phrase “one year” in clause (A) of Section 7(a) of the Prior Letter Agreement is hereby replaced with the phrase “six months”, and (ii) the phrase “at least 150 days” in clause (B)(x) of Section (7)(a) of the Prior Letter Agreement is hereby deleted.

 

8. During the period commencing on the date hereof and ending on the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof, Sponsor shall not, without the prior written consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), modify or amend any Contract between or among Sponsor or any Affiliate of Sponsor (other than Parent or any of its Subsidiaries), on the one hand, and Parent or any of Parent’s Subsidiaries, on the other hand (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Prior Letter Agreement).

 

9. Sponsor and SRAC Partners each hereby acknowledge that they have read the Merger Agreement and this Letter Agreement and have had the opportunity to consult with their tax and legal advisors with respect thereto. Sponsor and SRAC Partners shall each be bound by and comply with Section 7.2 (Parent No Solicitation) and the final sentence of Section 7.8(c) (Confidentiality; Communications Plan; Access to Information) of the Merger Agreement (and any relevant definitions contained in any such Sections) as if Sponsor and SRAC Partners were original signatories to the Merger Agreement with respect to such provisions, mutatis mutandis.

 

10. During the period commencing on the date hereof and ending on the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof, at any meeting of the stockholders of Parent, or at any postponement or adjournment thereof, called to seek the affirmative vote of the holders of the outstanding Parent Shares entitled to vote thereon to adopt the Merger Agreement or in any other circumstances upon which a vote, consent or other approval of the stockholders of Parent with respect to the Merger Agreement, the Mergers or the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement is sought, Sponsor and SRAC Partners shall each vote (or cause to be voted) all Parent Shares entitled to vote thereon currently or hereinafter owned by Sponsor and SRAC Partners in favor of the foregoing.

Neither Sponsor nor SRAC Partners shall commit or agree to take any action in contravention of the foregoing that would be effective prior to the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof.

 

12. During the period commencing on the date hereof and ending on the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof, without the prior written consent of the Company, Sponsor and SRAC Partners each agree not to (a) transfer any Parent Shares or (b) deposit any Parent Shares into a voting trust or enter into a voting agreement or any similar agreement, arrangement or understanding with respect to Parent Shares or grant any proxy (except as otherwise provided herein), consent or power of attorney with respect thereto (other than pursuant to this Letter Agreement) that conflict with Sponsor’s and SRAC Partners’ obligations pursuant to Section 10 or Section 11; provided, that Sponsor and SRAC Partners each may, without the Company’s prior written consent, transfer any such Parent Shares to any Affiliate of Sponsor or SRAC Partners, respectively, if, and only if, the transferee of such Parent Shares evidences in a writing reasonably satisfactory to Parent such transferee’s agreement to be bound by and subject to the terms and provisions hereof to the same effect as Sponsor or SRAC Partners, respectively (to the extent applicable to such transferred Parent Shares).

 

13. During the period commencing on the date hereof and ending on the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof, Sponsor and SRAC Partners each agree that any Parent Shares that either Sponsor or SRAC Partners purchases or otherwise hereinafter acquires or with respect to which either otherwise acquires voting power after the execution of this Letter Agreement and prior to the earlier of the Closing and the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Article IX thereof shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Letter Agreement to the same extent as if they were owned by Sponsor or SRAC Partner as of the date hereof.
