Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

General

On September 2, 2020, Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Kensington”), Kensington Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of Kensington (“Merger Sub”), and QuantumScape Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a business combination agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, Kensington and the Company will enter into a business combination. The terms of the Business Combination Agreement, which contains customary representations and warranties, covenants, closing conditions, termination fee provisions and other terms relating to the Merger (defined below) and the other transactions contemplated thereby, are summarized below. Capitalized terms used in this Current Report on Form 8-K but not otherwise defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Business Combination Agreement.

As a result of the business combination, Kensington currently expects to issue with respect to Company Capital Stock (or expects to reserve for issuance with respect to Exchanged Options, Exchanged RSUs and Exchanged Warrants) 368,799,998 shares of Kensington Common Stock in the aggregate.  The final aggregate amount of shares of Kensington Common Stock to be issued (or reserved for issuance) in connection with the business combination will be calculated in accordance with the Business Combination Agreement.

The Business Combination Agreement

Structure of the Transaction

The transaction is structured as a reverse triangular merger, which includes the following:

 

(a)

Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, on the Closing Date, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company (the “Merger,” together with the other transactions related thereto, the “Proposed Transactions”), with the Company surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of Kensington (the “Surviving Corporation”);

 

(b)

Contemporaneously with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, certain investors have entered into certain subscription agreements, pursuant to which such investors will purchase shares of Kensington Common Stock at a purchase price of $10.00 per share in a private placement to be consummated immediately prior to the consummation of the Proposed Transactions;

 

(c)

In addition, concurrently with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, (i) Kensington, the Company and Volkswagen Group of America Investments LLC (“Volkswagen”) entered into a stockholder support agreement (the “Volkswagen Support Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, Volkswagen agreed, among other things, to vote its shares of Company Preferred Stock in favor of the Business Combination Agreement and the Proposed Transactions, and (ii) Kensington, the Company and certain stockholders of the Company with (together with Volkswagen) a sufficient number of votes to approve the Merger and other transactions that require the approval of the Company’s stockholders (the “Key Company Stockholders”) entered into a stockholder support agreement (the “Other Stockholder Support Agreement”; the Volkswagen Stockholder Support Agreement and the Other Stockholder Support Agreement, the “Stockholder Support Agreements”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Key Company Stockholders agreed, among other things, to vote their shares of Company Common Stock and Company Preferred Stock in favor of the Business Combination Agreement and the Proposed Transactions; and (iii) certain stockholders of the Company and certain stockholders of Kensington entered into a registration rights and lock-up agreement (the “Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement”);

 

(d)

In addition, concurrently with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, certain senior level employees of the Company entered into a lock-up agreement (the “Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreement”) with Kensington, pursuant to which, such employees agreed to restrictions on the transferability of Kensington securities for a period of up to four years following the consummation of the Proposed Transactions, subject to certain exceptions set forth therein; and


 

 

(e)

In addition, concurrently with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, (i) Kensington and the Company entered into a letter agreement with Volkswagen Group of America Investments, LLC (“VGA”), a stockholder of the Company, pursuant to which, consistent with the rights of VGA with respect to the election of the Company’s directors under the existing voting agreement between the Company and certain of its stockholders, VGA will be entitled, following the Proposed Transactions, to nominate up to two designees to Kensington’s board of directors, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions regarding funding and ownership of Kensington capital stock (the “First VGA Letter Agreement”), (ii) Kensington and the Company entered into an additional letter agreement with VGA, pursuant to which VGA will, among other things, receive an opportunity to review and comment on filings with the SEC with respect to the Proposed Transactions and be provided copies of notices provided between the parties to the Business Combination Agreement (the “Second VGA Letter Agreement”) and (iii) Kensington and the Company entered into an additional letter agreement with VGA, pursuant to which the Company will reserve proceeds from its Series F Preferred Stock financing and capital received through the Merger in a separate account to fund equity contributions to QSV Operations LLC (the “Third VGA Letter Agreement”).  The foregoing descriptions of the First VGA Letter Agreement, Second VGA Letter Agreement and Third VGA Letter Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, copies of which are filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

Conversion of Securities

At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Kensington, Merger Sub, the Company or the holders of any of the Company’s securities:

 

(a)

each share of the Company Class A Common Stock (which has one vote per share) and each share of the Company Preferred Stock that is convertible into the Company Class A Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be canceled and converted into the right to receive the number of shares of Kensington Class A Common Stock that will be in effect after completion of the Proposed Transactions (the “New Kensington Class A Common Stock”) equal to the Exchange Ratio.  The New Kensington Class A Common Stock will have one vote per share;

 

(b)

each share of the Company Class B Common Stock (which has 10 votes per share) and each share of the Company Preferred Stock that is convertible into the Company Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be canceled and converted into the right to receive the number of shares of Kensington Class B Common Stock that will be in effect after completion of the Proposed Transactions (the “New Kensington Class B Common Stock”; and together with the New Kensington Class A Common Stock, the “New Kensington Common Stock”) equal to the Exchange Ratio.  The New Kensington Class B Common Stock will have ten votes per share;

 

(c)

each share of the Company Capital Stock held in the treasury of the Company will be cancelled without any conversion thereof and no payment or distribution will be made with respect thereto;

 

(d)

each share of Merger Sub Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted into and exchanged for one validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable share of common stock of the Surviving Corporation;

each Company Option that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, will be converted into an option to purchase a number of shares of the applicable class of New Kensington Common Stock that the pre-conversion Company Option covers (such option, an “Exchanged Option”) equal to the product (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of (i) the number of shares of Company Common Stock subject to such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time and (ii) the Exchange Ratio, at an exercise price per share (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) equal to (A) the exercise price per share of such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time divided by (B) Exchange Ratio. Except as specifically provided in the Business Combination Agreement, following the Effective Time, each Exchanged Option will continue to be governed by the same terms and conditions (including vesting and exercisability terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time;


 

 

(f)

each share of Company Restricted Stock that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted into restricted shares of the applicable class of New Kensington Common Stock that the pre-conversion Company Restricted Stock covers (such share of restricted Common Stock, an “Exchanged Restricted Common Stock”) equal to the product (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of (i) the number of shares of Company Restricted Stock immediately prior to the Effective Time and (ii) the Exchange Ratio.  Except as specifically provided above, following the Effective Time, each Exchanged Restricted Stock shall continue to be governed by the same terms and conditions (including transfer restrictions and repurchase right terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Company Restricted Stock immediately prior to the Effective Time;

 

(g)

each Company RSU that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into restricted stock units of the applicable class of New Kensington Common Stock that the pre-conversion Company RSU covers (such restricted stock unit award covering Common Stock, an “Exchanged RSU”) equal to the product (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of (i) the number of shares subject to a Company RSU immediately prior to the Effective Time and (ii) the Exchange Ratio.  Except as specifically provided above, following the Effective Time, each Exchanged RSU shall continue to be governed by the same terms and conditions (including transfer restrictions and repurchase right terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Company RSU immediately prior to the Effective Time; and

 

(h)

each Company Warrant that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted into a warrant to purchase a number of shares of the applicable class of New Kensington Common Stock that corresponded to the class for which the pre-conversion Company Warrant was exercisable (such warrant, an “Exchanged Warrant”) equal to the product (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of (i) the number of shares of Company Common Stock subject to such Company Warrant immediately prior to the Effective Time and (ii) the Exchange Ratio, at an exercise price per share (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) equal to (A) the exercise price per share of such Company Warrant immediately prior to the Effective Time divided by (B) the Exchange Ratio.  Except as specifically provided above, following the Effective Time, each Exchanged Warrant shall continue to be governed by the same terms and conditions (including vesting and exercisability terms) as were applicable to the corresponding former Company Warrant immediately prior to the Effective Time.

Exchange Ratio” means the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the “Target Share Amount”, which is to be calculated in accordance with the Business Combination Agreement and is, as of the date of the Business Combination Agreement, equal to 368,799,998, by (y) the Fully-Diluted Company Shares.

A copy of the Business Combination Agreement is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Business Combination Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Business Combination Agreement filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Business Combination Agreement is included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Kensington, the Company or the other parties thereto. In particular, the assertions embodied in representations and warranties by Kensington, the Company and Merger Sub contained in the Business Combination Agreement are qualified by information in the disclosure schedules provided by the parties in connection with the signing of the Business Combination Agreement. These disclosure schedules contain information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations and warranties set forth in the Business Combination Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Business Combination Agreement were used for the purpose of allocating risk between the parties, rather than establishing matters as facts. Accordingly, investors and security holders should not rely on the representations and warranties in the Business Combination Agreement as characterizations of the actual state of facts about Kensington, the Company or Merger Sub.

Stockholder Support Agreement

On September 2, 2020, Volkswagen and the Key Company Stockholders entered into the Stockholder Support Agreements pursuant to which, among other things, they agreed to vote all of their shares of Company Common Stock and Company Preferred Stock in favor of the approval and adoption of the Proposed Transactions within 24 hours after the Company requests them to do so, provided that the Company may not make such request until the S-4 Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC.  Additionally, Volkswagen and the Key Company Stockholders have agreed not to (a) transfer any of their shares of Company Common Stock and Company Preferred Stock (or enter into any arrangement with respect thereto) or (b) enter into any voting arrangement that is inconsistent with the Stockholder Support Agreement.  The Stockholder Support Agreements terminate on the occurrence of certain events, including the termination of the Business Combination Agreement in accordance with its terms or certain amendments or modifications to the terms of the Business Combination Agreement.  As discussed above, Volkswagen and the Key Company Stockholders collectively have a sufficient number of votes to approve the Merger and other transactions that require the approval of the Company’s stockholders.

The foregoing description of the Stockholder Support Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Stockholder Support Agreements, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 (with respect to the Volkswagen Stockholder Support Agreement) and 10.2 (with respect to the Key Stockholder Support Agreement) to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement

On September 2, 2020, Kensington, Kensington Capital Sponsor LLC (the “Original Holder”) and certain stockholders of the Company (the “New Holders” and, collectively with the Original Holder, the “Holders”) entered into the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement, which shall be effective at the Closing. Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement, Kensington will be obligated to file a registration statement to register the resale of certain securities of Kensington held by the Holders. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement and subject to certain requirements and customary conditions, including with regard to the number of demand rights that may be exercised, the Holders may demand at any time or from time to time, that Kensington file a registration statement on Form S-3 (or on Form S-1 if Form S-3 is not available) to register the securities of Kensington held by such Holders. The Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement also provides the Holders with “piggy-back” registration rights, subject to certain requirements and customary conditions.


 

The Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement further provides for the securities of Kensington held by the Holders to be locked-up for a period of time following the Closing, as described below, subject to certain exceptions. The securities held by the Original Holder will be locked-up for one year following the Closing, subject to earlier release if (i) the reported last sale price of Kensington’s common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Closing or (ii) if Kensington consummates a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after the Closing which results in all of Kensington’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property. The securities held by the New Holders will be locked-up for 180 days after the Closing, subject to earlier release if (i) the reported last sale price of Kensington’s common stock equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Closing or (ii) if Kensington consummates a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after the Closing which results in all of Kensington’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property.

The foregoing description of the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated herein by reference.

Subscription Agreements

In connection with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, effective as of September 2, 2020, Kensington entered into separate subscription agreements (each, a “Subscription Agreement”) with a number of investors (each a “Subscriber”), pursuant to which the Subscribers agreed to purchase, and Kensington agreed to sell to the Subscribers, an aggregate of 50,000,000 shares of Kensington Class A Common Stock (which will be New Kensington Class A Common Stock upon completion of the Proposed Transactions) (the “PIPE Shares”), for a purchase price of $10.00 per share and an aggregate purchase price of $500 million, in a private placement (the “PIPE”).

The closing of the sale of the PIPE Shares pursuant to the Subscription Agreement is contingent upon, among other customary closing conditions, the substantially concurrent consummation of the Proposed Transactions. The purpose of the PIPE is to raise additional capital for use by the combined company following the Closing.

Pursuant to the Subscription Agreements, Kensington agreed, among other things, that, within 15 business days after the consummation of the Proposed Transactions (the “Filing Deadline”), Kensington will file with the SEC (at Kensington’s sole cost and expense) a registration statement registering the resale of the PIPE Shares (the “Resale Registration Statement”), and Kensington will use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Resale Registration Statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof.

Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreements

On September 2, 2020, Kensington entered into separate Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreements with certain senior level employees of the Company (the “Senior Employees”), including the Company’s executive officers.  The Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreements provide that the securities of Kensington owned of record or beneficially by the Senior Employees (including certain securities that may be granted or issued to a Senior Employee after the Effective Time) (collectively, the “Lock-Up Shares”) may generally not be transferred for at least 180 days after the Closing (the “Initial Lock-Up Period”) and up to four years after the Closing, subject to certain exceptions.  Following the Initial Lock-Up Period, Senior Employees may transfer Lock-Up Shares without restriction as follows: (i) during the first year after the Effective Time, up to 25% of the total number of Lock-Up Shares, (ii) following the first anniversary of the Effective Time until the earlier of four years after the Closing or the occurrence of an event described below, up to 50% of the total number of Lock-Up Shares, and (iii) up to an additional 50% of the total number of Lock-Up Shares following satisfaction of agreed delivery requirements between the Company and VGA.  These transfer restrictions are subject to earlier release if (a) Kensington completes a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after the Closing that results in all of Kensington’s stockholders having the right to exchange their shares of common stock for cash, securities or other property; (b) VGA terminates for any reason the Amended and Restated Joint Venture Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2020, by and among the Company and VGA; (c) VGA issues a critical or negative statement regarding Kensington and its technology unless such statement is required to be made by VGA under applicable law and is truthful and accurate; or (d) VGA transfers certain Kensington securities in excess of the amounts set forth in the Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreements.  The Senior Employee Lock-UP Agreements also provide that, upon consummation of the Merger, Kensington or the Company shall pay to each Senior Employee a one-time cash bonus equal to 20% of the Senior Employee’s then annual base salary.


 

The foregoing description of the Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of the Senior Employee Lock-Up Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.5 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K includes, or incorporates by reference, certain statements that are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “would,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of revenue and other financial and performance metrics, projections of market opportunity, expectations and timing related to product development, potential benefits of the Proposed Transactions, and expectations related to the terms and timing of the Proposed Transactions. These statements are based on various assumptions and on the current expectations of Kensington’s and the Company’s management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of Kensington and the Company. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including general economic, financial, legal, political and business conditions and changes in domestic and foreign markets; the outcome of judicial proceedings to which Kensington or the Company may become a party (including any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Kensington or the Company following announcement of the Proposed Transactions); the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the Proposed Transactions or to satisfy the other conditions to the closing of the Proposed Transactions, including the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company; the risk that the approval of the stockholders of Kensington for the Proposed Transactions is not obtained; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Proposed Transactions, including as a result of a delay in consummating the Proposed Transaction or difficulty in, or costs associated with, integrating the businesses of Kensington and the Company; the amount of redemption requests made by Kensington’s stockholders; the occurrence of events that may give rise to a right of one or both of Kensington and the Company to terminate the Business Combination Agreement; risks related to the rollout of the Company’s business, the development and performance of the Company’s products, and the timing of expected business milestones; the risk that the Proposed Transactions disrupt Kensington’s or the Company’s current plans and operations as a result of the announcement of the Proposed Transactions; the ability to grow and manage growth following the Proposed Transactions; the effects of competition on the Company’s future business; and those factors discussed in Kensington’s Registration Statement on Form S-1, as amended, under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of Kensington filed, or to be filed, with the SEC. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither Kensington nor the Company presently do not know or that Kensington and the Company currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect Kensington’s and the Company’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Kensington and the Company anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause their assessments to change. However, while Kensington and the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Kensington and the Company specifically disclaim any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Kensington’s or the Company’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.

SECTION 3.02.  Exchange of Certificates.

(a)Exchange Agent.  On the Closing Date, Kensington shall deposit, or shall cause to be deposited, with a bank or trust company that shall be designated by Kensington and is reasonably satisfactory to the Company (the “Exchange Agent”), (i) for the benefit of the holders of Company Class A Common Stock and Company Class A Preferred Stock, for exchange in accordance with this Article III, the number of shares of New Kensington Class A Common Stock sufficient to deliver the aggregate Per Share Merger Consideration payable with respect thereto pursuant to Section 3.01(b)(i) of this Agreement and (ii) for the benefit of the holders of Company Class B Common Stock and Company Class B Preferred Stock, for exchange in accordance with this Article III, the number of shares of New Kensington Class B Common Stock sufficient to deliver the aggregate Per Share Merger Consideration payable with respect thereto pursuant to Section 3.01(b)(ii) of this Agreement (such shares of New Kensington Class A Common Stock and New Kensington Class B Common Stock, in each case referred to in the preceding clauses (i) and (ii), together with any dividends or distributions with respect thereto (pursuant to Section 3.02(c), being hereinafter referred to as the “Exchange Fund”).  Kensington shall cause the Exchange Agent pursuant to irrevocable instructions, to pay the Per Share Merger Consideration out of the Exchange Fund in accordance with this Agreement.  Except as contemplated by Section 3.02(c) hereof, the Exchange Fund shall not be used for any other purpose.  All shares deposited hereunder shall not be certificated.

(b)Exchange Procedures.  As promptly as practicable after the Effective Time, Kensington shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Exchange Agent to mail to each holder of Company Capital Stock entitled to receive the Per Share Merger Consideration pursuant to Section 3.01:  a letter of transmittal, which shall be in a form reasonably acceptable to Kensington and the Company (the “Letter of Transmittal”) and shall specify (i) that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to the certificates evidencing such shares of Company Capital Stock (the “Certificates”) shall pass, only upon proper delivery of the Certificates to the Exchange Agent or confirmation of cancellation of such Certificates from the Company’s transfer agent, Solium Capital ULC and its affiliates, d/b/a Shareworks (each, a “Transfer Agent Cancellation”); and (ii) instructions for use in effecting the surrender of the Certificates pursuant to the Letter of Transmittal.  Within two (2) Business Days (but in no event prior to the Effective Time) after the surrender to the Exchange Agent of all Certificates held by such holder for cancellation (or a Transfer Agent Cancellation), together with a Letter of Transmittal, duly completed and validly executed in accordance with the instructions thereto and such other documents as may be required pursuant to such instructions, the holder of such Certificates shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefore, and Kensington shall cause the Exchange Agent to deliver, the applicable Per Share Merger Consideration in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01, and the Certificate(s) so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled.  Until surrendered as contemplated by this Section 3.02, each Certificate entitled to receive the applicable Per Share Merger Consideration in accordance with Section 3.01 shall be deemed at all times after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such surrender the applicable Per Share Merger Consideration that such holder is entitled to receive in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01.

19


 

 

(c)Distributions with Respect to Unexchanged Shares of Kensington Common Stock.  No dividends or other distributions declared or made after the Effective Time with respect to the New Kensington Common Stock with a record date after the Effective Time shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Certificate with respect to the shares of New Kensington Common Stock represented thereby until the holder of such Certificate shall surrender such Certificate in accordance with Section 3.02(b).  Subject to the effect of escheat, tax or other applicable Laws, following surrender of any such Certificate, Kensington shall pay or cause to be paid to the holder of shares of New Kensington Common Stock issued in exchange therefore, without interest, (i) promptly, but in any event within five (5) Business Days of such surrender, the amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date after the Effective Time and theretofore paid with respect to such shares of New Kensington Common Stock, and (ii) at the appropriate payment date, the amount of dividends or other distributions, with a record date after the Effective Time but prior to surrender and a payment date occurring after surrender, payable with respect to such shares of New Kensington Common Stock.

(d)No Further Rights in Company Common Stock and Company Preferred Stock.  The Per Share Merger Consideration payable upon conversion of the Company Capital Stock in accordance with the terms hereof shall be deemed to have been paid and issued in full satisfaction of all rights pertaining to such Company Capital Stock.

(e)Adjustments to Per Share Merger Consideration.  The Per Share Merger Consideration shall be adjusted to reflect appropriately the effect of any stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, combination, exchange of shares or other like change with respect to Kensington Capital Stock occurring on or after the date of this Agreement and prior to the Effective Time (but, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not be adjusted to reflect any change in the capitalization of the Company, except to the extent expressly set forth in the definition of “Exchange Ratio” and its components as determined in accordance with Section 3.06).

(f)Termination of Exchange Fund.  Any portion of the Exchange Fund that remains undistributed to the holders of Company Capital Stock for one year after the Effective Time shall be delivered to Kensington, upon demand, and any holders of Company Capital Stock who have not theretofore complied with this Section 3.02 shall thereafter look only to Kensington for the Per Share Merger Consideration.  Any portion of the Exchange Fund remaining unclaimed by holders of Company Capital Stock as of a date which is immediately prior to such time as such amounts would otherwise escheat to or become property of any government entity shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, become the property of Kensington free and clear of any claims or interest of any person previously entitled thereto.

(g)No Liability.  None of the Exchange Agent, Kensington or the Surviving Corporation shall be liable to any holder of Company Capital Stock for any such Company Capital Stock (or dividends or distributions with respect thereto) or cash delivered to a public official pursuant to any abandoned property, escheat or similar Law in accordance with Section 3.02.

(h)Withholding Rights.  Each of the Surviving Corporation and Kensington shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the consideration otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement to any holder of Company Capital Stock such amounts as it is required to deduct and

20


 

 

withhold with respect to the making of such payment under the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code), or any provision of state, local or foreign tax law.  To the extent that amounts are so withheld by the Surviving Corporation or Kensington, as the case may be, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the holder of the Company Capital Stock (or intended recipients of compensatory payments) in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made by the Surviving Corporation or Kensington, as the case may be.

(i)Lost Certificates.  If any Certificate shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact and related indemnity by the person claiming such Certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed (such affidavit and indemnity to be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Kensington and the Surviving Corporation but in any case to not require the delivery of a bond), the Exchange Agent will issue in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed Certificate, the applicable Per Share Merger Consideration that such holder is otherwise entitled to receive pursuant to, and in accordance with, the provisions of Section 3.01.

SECTION 3.03.  Stock Transfer Books.  At the Effective Time, the stock transfer books of the Company shall be closed and there shall be no further registration of transfers of Company Capital Stock thereafter on the records of the Company.  From and after the Effective Time, the holders of Certificates representing Company Capital Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect to such Company Capital Stock, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or by Law.  On or after the Effective Time, any Certificates presented to the Exchange Agent or Kensington for any reason shall be converted into the applicable Per Share Merger Consideration in accordance with the applicable provisions of Section 3.01.

(a)No sooner than five (5) or later than two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall provide to Kensington a written report setting forth a list of all of the following fees and expenses incurred by or on behalf of the Company in connection with the preparation, negotiation and execution of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby (together with written invoices and wire transfer instructions for the payment thereof), solely to the extent such fees and expenses are incurred and expected to remain unpaid as of the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the Closing Date: (i) the fees and disbursements of outside counsel to the Company incurred in connection with the Transactions and (ii) the fees and expenses of any other agents, advisors, consultants, experts, financial advisors and other service providers engaged by the Company in connection with the Transactions (collectively, the “Outstanding Company Transaction Expenses”).  On the Closing Date following the Closing, Kensington shall pay or cause to be paid by wire transfer of immediately available funds all such Outstanding Company Transaction Expenses.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Outstanding Company Transaction Expenses shall not include any fees and expenses of the Company’s stockholders.

(b)No sooner than five (5) or later than two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, Kensington shall provide to the Company a written report setting forth a list of all fees, expenses and disbursements incurred by or on behalf of Kensington or Merger Sub for outside

21


 

 

counsel, agents, advisors, consultants, experts, financial advisors and other service providers engaged by or on behalf of Kensington or Merger Sub in connection with the Transactions or otherwise in connection with Kensington’s operations (together with written invoices and wire transfer instructions for the payment thereof) (collectively, the “Outstanding Kensington Transaction Expenses).  On the Closing Date following the Closing, Kensington shall pay or cause to be paid by wire transfer of immediately available funds all such Outstanding Kensington Transaction Expenses.

(c)Kensington shall not pay or cause to be paid any Outstanding Kensington Transaction Expenses or Outstanding Company Transaction Expenses other than in accordance with this Section 3.04.

(b)Prior to the Closing, the Company shall give Kensington (i) prompt 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 with respect to demands for appraisal under the DGCL.  The Company shall not, except with the prior written consent of Kensington (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), make any payment with respect to any demands for appraisal or offer to settle or settle any such demands.

SECTION 3.06.  Calculation of Exchange Ratio.

(a)For purposes of this Agreement, the “Determination Date” shall be the date that is ten (10) Business Days prior to the anticipated date for Closing, as agreed upon by Kensington and the Company at least ten (10) Business Days prior to the date of the Kensington Stockholders’ Meeting (the “Anticipated Closing Date”).  No later than the Determination Date, the Company shall deliver to Kensington a calculation (the “Exchange Ratio Calculation”) setting forth the Company’s good faith, estimated calculation of Exchange Ratio as of the

22


 

 

Anticipated Closing Date (using an estimate of each component thereof as of such date, prepared and certified by the Company’s chief financial officer or principal accounting officer.  The Company shall make relevant back-up materials used or useful in preparing the Exchange Ratio Calculation, as reasonably requested in writing by Kensington, available to Kensington and, if requested in writing by Kensington, its accountants and counsel at reasonable times and upon reasonable notice.

(b)Within three (3) Business Days after the Company delivers the Exchange Ratio Calculation (the “Response Date”), Kensington shall have the right to dispute any part of such Exchange Ratio Calculation by delivering a written notice to that effect to the Company (a “Dispute Notice”). Any Dispute Notice shall identify in reasonable detail the nature of any proposed revisions to the Exchange Ratio Calculation.

(c)If on or prior to the Response Date, (i) Kensington notifies the Company in writing that it has no objections to the Exchange Ratio Calculation or (ii) Kensington fails to deliver a Dispute Notice as provided in Section 3.06(b), then the Exchange Ratio as set forth in the Exchange Ratio Calculation delivered to Kensington shall be deemed, subject to the terms of Section 3.06(f), to have been finally determined for purposes of this Agreement and to represent the Exchange Ratio at the Anticipated Closing Date for purposes of this Agreement.

(d)If Kensington delivers a Dispute Notice on or prior to the Response Date, then Representatives of Kensington and the Company shall promptly meet and attempt in good faith to resolve the disputed item(s) and negotiate an agreed-upon determination of the Exchange Ratio, which agreed upon Exchange Ratio amount shall be deemed to have been finally determined for purposes of this Agreement and to represent the Exchange Ratio at the Anticipated Closing Date for purposes of this Agreement.

(e)If Representatives of Kensington and the Company are unable to negotiate an agreed-upon determination of the Exchange Ratio at the Anticipated Closing Date pursuant to Section 3.06(d) within three (3) Business Days after delivery of the Dispute Notice (or such other period as Kensington and the Company may mutually agree upon), then Kensington and the Company shall jointly select an independent auditor of recognized national standing (the “Accounting Firm”) to resolve any remaining disagreements as to the Exchange Ratio Calculation. The Company shall promptly deliver to the Accounting Firm the relevant back-up materials used in preparing the Exchange Ratio Calculation, and Kensington and the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Accounting Firm to make its determination within five (5) Business Days of accepting its selection. Kensington and the Company shall be afforded the opportunity to present to the Accounting Firm any material related to the unresolved disputes and to discuss the issues with the Accounting Firm; provided, however, that no such presentation or discussion shall occur without the presence of a Representative of each of Kensington and the Company. The determination of the Accounting Firm shall be limited to the disagreements submitted to the Accounting Firm. The determination of the amount of the Exchange Ratio made by the Accounting Firm shall be deemed to have been finally determined for purposes of this Agreement and to represent the Exchange Ratio at the Anticipated Closing Date for purposes of this Agreement, and the parties shall delay the Closing until the resolution of the matters described in this Section 3.06(e). The fees and expenses of the Accounting Firm shall be allocated between Kensington and the Company in the same proportion that the disputed

23


 

 

amount of the Exchange Ratio that was unsuccessfully disputed by such party (as finally determined by the Accounting Firm) bears to the total disputed amount of the Exchange Ratio.

(f)Following the final determination of Exchange Ratio as of the Anticipated Closing Date in accordance with this Section 3.06 (either as a result of the mutual agreement of the parties or the determination of the Accounting Firm), the parties shall not be required to determine the Exchange Ratio again even though the Closing Date may occur later than the Anticipated Closing Date, except that either party may request a redetermination of the Exchange Ratio if the Closing Date is more than fifteen (15) Business Days after the Anticipated Closing Date (including as a result of the engagement of the Accounting Firm), in which event the procedures set forth in this Section 3.06 shall once again apply and the parties shall select a new Anticipated Closing Date.

(the “Trust Account”).  The monies of such Trust Account are invested in United States Government securities or money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and held in trust by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (the “Trustee”) pursuant to the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated as of June 30, 2020, between Kensington and the Trustee (the “Trust Agreement”).  The Trust Agreement has not been amended or modified and is valid and in full force and effect and is enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to the Remedies Exceptions.  Kensington has 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 Kensington or the Trustee.  There are no separate contracts, agreements, side letters or other understandings (whether written or unwritten, express or implied): (i) between Kensington and the Trustee that would cause the description of the Trust Agreement in the Kensington SEC Reports to be inaccurate in any material respect; or (ii) to the knowledge of Kensington, that would entitle any person (other than stockholders of Kensington who shall have elected to redeem their shares of Kensington Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Kensington Organizational 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 (B) upon the exercise of Redemption Rights in accordance with the provisions of the Kensington Organizational Documents.  As of the date of this Agreement, there are no Actions pending or, to the knowledge of Kensington, threatened in writing with respect to the Trust Account.  Upon consummation of the Merger and notice thereof to the Trustee pursuant to the Trust Agreement, Kensington shall cause the Trustee to, and the Trustee shall thereupon be obligated to, release to Kensington as promptly as practicable, the Trust Funds in accordance with the Trust Agreement at which point

50


 

 

the Trust Account shall terminate; provided, however, that the liabilities and obligations of Kensington due and owing or incurred at or prior to the Effective Time shall be paid as and when due, including all amounts payable (a) to stockholders of Kensington who shall have exercised their Redemption Rights, (b) with respect to filings, applications and/or other actions taken pursuant to this Agreement required under Law, (c) to the Trustee for fees and costs incurred in accordance with the Trust Agreement; and (d) to third parties (e.g., professionals, printers, etc.) who have rendered services to Kensington in connection with its efforts to effect the Merger.  As of the date of this Agreement, assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Company herein and the compliance by the Company with its respective obligations hereunder, Kensington has no 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 Kensington at the Effective Time.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time prior to the receipt of the Written Consent, but not after, the Company Board may make a Company Adverse Recommendation Change or cause the Company to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.01(i) to enter into a Company Acquisition Agreement with respect to a Company Acquisition Proposal only if the Company Board has reasonably determined in good faith, after consultation with its outside financial advisor and legal counsel, that (i) the failure to take such action would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the Company Board’s fiduciary duties under applicable Law, and (ii) that such Company Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Company Superior Proposal; provided, however, that prior to taking such action, (A) the Company promptly notifies Kensington, in writing, at least three (3) Business Days (the “Company Notice Period”) before making a Company Adverse Recommendation Change or entering into a Company Acquisition Agreement, of its intention to take such action with respect to a Company Superior Proposal, which notice shall (1) state expressly that the Company has received a Company Acquisition Proposal that the Company Board intends to declare a Company Superior Proposal and that the Company Board intends to make a Company Adverse Recommendation Change and/or the Company intends to enter into a Company Acquisition Agreement and (2) include a copy of the most current version of the proposed agreement relating to such Company Superior Proposal (which version shall be updated on a prompt basis), and a description of any financing commitments relating thereto; (B) the Company shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, during the Company Notice Period, negotiate with Kensington in good faith in respect of adjustments in the terms and conditions of this Agreement such that such Company Acquisition Proposal would cease to constitute a Company Superior Proposal, if Kensington, in its discretion, proposes to make such adjustments (it being agreed that in the event that, after commencement of the Company Notice Period, there is any material revision to the terms of a Company Superior Proposal, including, any revision in price, then the Company will provide a new notice to Kensington that complies with the requirements of this Section 7.05(d) and that the “Notice Period” in respect of such new notice will be two (2) Business Days); and (C) following the end of such Company Notice Period the Company Board determines in good faith, after consulting with outside financial advisor and legal counsel, that such Company Acquisition Proposal continues to constitute a Company Superior Proposal after taking into account any adjustments made by Kensington during the Company Notice Period in the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and provided, further, that the Company shall have complied with its obligations under this Section 7.05(d) and if the Company Board terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.01(i) to enter into a Company Acquisition Agreement, the Company pays or causes to be paid to Kensington the Termination Fee due in accordance with Section 9.03(a).

63


 

 

(e)Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, at any time prior to obtaining the Written Consent, the Company Board determines in good faith, in response to an Intervening Event, after consultation with its outside legal counsel, that the failure to make a Company Adverse Recommendation Change would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under applicable Law, the Company Board may, prior to obtaining the Written Consent, make a Company Adverse Recommendation Change; provided, however, that the Company will not be entitled to make, or agree or resolve to make, a Company Adverse Recommendation Change unless (i) the Company promptly notifies Kensington in writing, at least three (3) Business Days (the “Intervening Event Notice Period) advising Kensington that the Company Board proposes to take such action and containing the material facts underlying the Company Board’s determination that an Intervening Event has occurred, and (ii) following the end of such Intervening Event Notice Period (it being agreed that in the event after the commencement of the Intervening Event Notice Period, there is any material development with respect to an Intervening Event, the Intervening Event Notice Period shall be extended, if applicable, to ensure that at least two (2) Business Days remains in the Intervening Event Notice Period subsequent to the time the company notifies Kensington of any such material revision (it being understood that there may be multiple extensions)), the Company Board determines in good faith, after consulting with outside financial advisors and legal counsel, that the failure to make a Company Adverse Recommendation Change in response to such Intervening Event would be inconsistent with the Company Board’s fiduciary duties under applicable Law. If requested by Kensington, the Company shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, during the Intervening Event Notice Period, negotiate with Kensington in good faith to make such adjustments in the terms and conditions of this Agreement so as to obviate the need for a Company Adverse Recommendation Change.  For the avoidance of doubt, none of (A) the determination by the Company Board that an Intervening Event may or has occurred or (B) the delivery by the Company to Kensington of any notice contemplated by this Section 7.05 will, in and of itself, constitute a Company Adverse Recommendation Change or violate this Section 7.05.

(f)The parties agree that any violation of the restrictions set forth in this Section 7.05 by any of the Company’s Representatives shall be deemed to be a breach of this Section 7.05 by the Company.

SECTION 7.06.  Kensington Exclusivity.  From the date of this Agreement and ending on the earlier of (a) the Closing and (b) the termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 9.01, but only to the extent not inconsistent with the fiduciary duties of the Kensington Board, Kensington shall not, and shall cause its Representatives not to, directly or indirectly, (i) enter into, knowingly solicit, initiate or continue any discussions or negotiations with, or knowingly encourage or respond to any inquiries or proposals by, or participate in any negotiations with, or provide any information to, or otherwise cooperate in any way with, any person or other entity or “group” within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, concerning any sale of any material assets of such person or any of the outstanding capital stock or any conversion, consolidation, liquidation, dissolution or similar transaction involving such person other than with the Company and its Representatives (an “Alternative Transaction”), (ii) enter into any agreement regarding, continue or otherwise knowingly participate in any discussions regarding, or furnish to any person any information with respect to, or cooperate in any way that would otherwise reasonably be expected to lead to, any Alternative Transaction or (iii) commence, continue or renew any due diligence investigation regarding any Alternative Transaction; provided, however, that the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the

64


 

 

Transaction Documents and the consummation of the Transactions shall not be deemed a violation of this Section 7.06. Kensington shall, and shall cause its affiliates and Representatives to, immediately cease any and all existing discussions or negotiations with any person conducted heretofore with respect to any Alternative Transaction.  Kensington also agrees that it will promptly request each person (other than the Company and its Representatives) that has prior to the date of this Agreement executed a confidentiality agreement in connection with its consideration of an Alternative Transaction to return or destroy all Confidential Information furnished to such person by or on behalf of it prior to the date of this Agreement (to the extent so permitted under, and in accordance with the terms of, such confidentiality agreement).  If Kensington or any of its affiliates or its or their respective Representatives receives any inquiry or proposal with respect to an Alternative Transaction at any time prior to the Closing, then Kensington shall promptly (and in no event later than one (1) Business Day after Kensington becomes aware of such inquiry or proposal) notify such person in writing that Kensington is subject to an exclusivity agreement with respect to the Transaction that prohibits Kensington or any of its affiliates or its or their respective Representatives from considering such inquiry or proposal.  Without limiting the foregoing, the parties agree that any violation of the restrictions set forth in this Section 7.06 by Kensington or any of its affiliates or its or their respective Representatives shall be deemed to be a breach of this Section 7.06 by Kensington.

SECTION 7.08.  Directors’ and Officers’ Indemnification.  

(a)The certificate of incorporation and bylaws of each of the Surviving Corporation and Kensington shall contain provisions no less favorable with respect to indemnification, advancement or expense reimbursement than are set forth in the certificate of incorporation and bylaws of the Company or Kensington, as applicable, which provisions shall not be amended, repealed or otherwise modified for a period of six years from the Effective Time in any manner that would affect adversely the rights thereunder of individuals who, at or prior to the Effective Time, were directors, officers, employees, fiduciaries or agents of the Company or Kensington, as applicable, unless such modification shall be required by applicable Law.  

(b)On the Closing Date, each of the Company and Kensington shall obtain (at each such party’s sole cost and expense) a non-cancelable run-off directors and officers “tail” insurance policy (providing coverage that, taken as a whole, is no less favorable than under such person’s policy as in effect on the date of this Agreement), for a period of six (6) years after the Closing Date to provide insurance coverage for events, acts or omissions occurring on or prior to the Closing Date for all persons who were directors or officers of the Company or Kensington, as applicable, on or prior to the Closing Date.

This Stockholder Support Agreement dated as of September 2, 2020 (this “Agreement”) is among Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Kensington”), and certain of the stockholders of QuantumScape Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), whose names appear on the signature pages of this Agreement (each, a “Stockholder” and, collectively, the “Stockholders”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Agreement have the meanings assigned to them in the Business Combination Agreement, dated as of September 2, 2020 (the “BCA”), among Kensington, Kensington Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Kensington (“Merger Sub”), and the Company.

WHEREAS, Kensington, Merger Sub and the Company are entering into, concurrently herewith, the BCA, which provides, among other things, that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Kensington; and

WHEREAS, as of the date of this Agreement, each Stockholder owns of record the number and class of shares of Company Common Stock and the number and series of shares of Company Preferred Stock set forth opposite such Stockholder’s name on Exhibit A (all such shares of Company Common Stock and Company Preferred Stock and any shares of Company Common Stock or Company Preferred Stock of which ownership of record or the power to vote is hereafter acquired by the Stockholders prior to the termination of this Agreement being referred to herein as the “Shares”).

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, the parties hereby agree as follows:

1.Agreement to Vote. Unless the Expiration Time (as defined below) has occurred, each Stockholder, by this Agreement, with respect to its Shares, severally and not jointly, hereby agrees, regardless of whether or not there shall have been a Company Adverse Recommendation Change, to vote, at any meeting of the stockholders of the Company called for the purpose of approving the Merger, and in any action by written consent of the stockholders of the Company requested by the Company for the purpose of approving the Merger (which written consent shall be substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B and shall be executed and delivered by such Stockholder promptly, and in any event within twenty four (24) hours, after the Company requests such delivery, provided that the Company shall not request delivery at any time prior to the Registration Statement being declared effective under the Securities Act by the SEC), all of such Stockholder’s Shares held by such Stockholder at such time in favor of the approval and adoption of the BCA, the Merger and the other Transactions.  Each Stockholder acknowledges receipt and review of a copy of the BCA.

2.Termination of Stockholder Agreements, Related Agreements. Unless the Expiration Time has occurred before the Effective Time, each Stockholder, by this Agreement, with respect to its Shares, severally and not jointly, hereby agrees to terminate, subject to and effective immediately prior to the Effective Time, provided that all Terminating Rights (as defined below) between the Company and any other holder of Company capital stock shall also terminate at such time, (a) (i) that certain Amended and Restated Investors’ Rights Agreement dated as of September 11, 2018 (as further amended from time to time, the “Investors’ Rights Agreement”) among the Company and the persons and entities listed on Exhibit A thereto, (ii) that certain Amended and Restated Right of First Refusal and Co-Sale Agreement dated as of September 11, 2018 (as further amended from time to time, the “ROFR and Co-Sale Agreement”) among the Company and the individuals and entities listed on Exhibit A thereto and the individuals listed on Exhibit B thereto and (iii) that certain Amended and Voting Agreement dated as of September 11, 2018 (as further amended from time to time, the “Voting Agreement” and together with the Investors’ Rights Agreement and the ROFR and Co-Sale Agreement, collectively the “Stockholder

 


 

Agreements”) among the Company and the persons listed on Exhibit A thereto and the persons listed on Exhibit B thereto and (b) if applicable to such Stockholder, any rights under any letter agreement providing for redemption rights, put rights, purchase rights or other similar rights not generally available to stockholders of the Company (the “Terminating Rights”) between such Stockholder and the Company.

For the avoidance of doubt, any agreements or other rights such Stockholder may have that relate to any commercial or employment agreements or arrangements between such Stockholder and the Company or any subsidiary are expressly excluded from the foregoing termination and shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with their terms, including, for the avoidance of doubt, (i) the Amended and Restated Joint Venture Agreement dated May 14, 2020 by and between, among others, Volkswagen Group of America Investments LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Volkswagen”), Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., a New Jersey corporation, the Company and QSV Operations LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“QSV”), (ii) the LLC Agreement related to QSV, (iii) other contractual arrangements related to QSV (the agreements under clauses (i) to (iii) together, the “Joint Venture Arrangements”), (iv) the Series F Stock Purchase Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2020, by and between the Company and Volkswagen, (v) that certain Side Letter Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2020, by and between the Company and Volkswagen, and (vi) that certain side letter agreement by and among the Company, Kensington and Volkswagen regarding certain representation rights on Kensington’s board of directors, dated on or about the day hereof.

4.No Solicitation of Transactions. From the date of this Agreement until the Expiration Time, each of the Stockholders severally and not jointly, agrees not to directly or indirectly, through any officer, director, representative, agent or otherwise, (a) solicit, initiate or knowingly encourage (including by way of furnishing non-public information) the submission of, or engage in any discussions or negotiations regarding, any Company Acquisition Proposal, except, in each case, to the extent the Company is permitted to do so under Section 7.05 of the BCA or (b) participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding, or furnish to any person any non-public information with the intent to assist, participate in, or knowingly facilitate or encourage, any unsolicited Company Acquisition Proposal that constitutes, or could reasonably be expected to lead to, a Company Superior Proposal, except, in each case, to the extent the Company is permitted to do so under Section 7.05 of the BCA. Each Stockholder shall, and shall direct its representatives and agents to, immediately cease and cause to be terminated any

discussions or negotiations with any parties that may be ongoing on the date of this Agreement with respect to any Company Acquisition Proposal (other than the transactions contemplated by the BCA).
