Explanatory Note

 

This Amendment amends the Current Report on Form 8-K of Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. II, filed with the Securities Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on September 15, 2020 (the "September 15 Current Report"), in which Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. II reported, among other events, the execution of the Merger Agreement (as defined below).

 

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Merger Agreement

 

Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. II is a blank check company incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses ("SCH"). As previously disclosed in the September 15 Current Report, on September 15, 2020, SCH entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Hestia Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of SCH ("Merger Sub") and Opendoor Labs Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Opendoor").

 

The Merger

 

The Merger Agreement provides that, among other things and upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, the following transactions will occur (together with the other agreements and transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the "Business Combination"):

 

(i)       at the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the "Closing"), upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement, (x) in accordance with the Delaware General Corporation Law, as amended ("DGCL"), Merger Sub will merge with and into Opendoor, the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub will cease and Opendoor will be the surviving corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of SCH (the "Merger");

 

(ii)       as a result of the Merger, among other things, all outstanding shares of common stock of Opendoor will be cancelled in exchange for the right to receive, in the aggregate, a number of shares of SCH Common Stock (as defined below) equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) $5,000,000,000 by (y) $10.00; and

 

(iii)        upon the effective time of the Merger (the "Effective Time"), SCH will immediately be renamed "Opendoor Technologies Inc."

 

The Board of Directors of SCH (the "Board") has unanimously (i) approved and declared advisable the Merger Agreement, the Business Combination and the other transactions contemplated thereby and (ii) resolved to recommend approval of the Merger Agreement and related matters by the shareholders of SCH.

 

The Domestication

 

Prior to the Closing, subject to the approval of SCH's shareholders, and in accordance with the DGCL, Cayman Islands Companies Law (2020 Revision) (the "CICL") and SCH's Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (as may be amended from time to time, the "Cayman Constitutional Documents"), SCH will effect a deregistration under the CICL and a domestication under Section 388 of the DGCL (by means of filing a certificate of domestication (the "Certificate of Domestication") with the Secretary of State of Delaware), pursuant to which SCH's jurisdiction of incorporation will be changed from the Cayman Islands to the State of Delaware (the "Domestication").

 

In connection with the Domestication, (i) each of the then issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, of SCH (the "SCH Class A Ordinary Shares"), will convert automatically, on a one-for-one basis, into a share of common stock, par value $0.0001, per share of SCH (after its Domestication) (the "SCH Common Stock"), (ii) each of the then issued and outstanding Class B ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, of SCH (the "SCH Class B Ordinary Shares"), will convert automatically, on a one-for-one basis, into a share of SCH Common Stock, (iii) each then issued and outstanding warrant of SCH will convert automatically into a warrant to acquire one share of SCH Common Stock ("Domesticated SCH Warrant"), pursuant to the Warrant Agreement, dated April 27, 2020, between SCH and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent, and (iv) each then issued and outstanding unit of SCH (the "Cayman SCH Units") will convert automatically into a unit of SCH (after the Domestication) (the "Domesticated SCH Units"), with each Domesticated SCH Unit representing one share of SCH Common Stock and one-third of one Domesticated SCH Warrant.

 

   

 

 

Conditions to Closing

 

The Merger Agreement is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions, including, among others, (i) approval of the Business Combination and related agreements and transactions by the respective shareholders of SCH and Opendoor, (ii) effectiveness of the proxy / registration statement on Form S-4 to be filed by SCH in connection with the Business Combination, (iii) expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, (iv) receipt of approval for listing on the NYSE or NASDAQ the shares of SCH Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Merger, (v) that SCH have at least $5,000,001 of net tangible assets upon Closing and (vi) the absence of any injunctions.

 

In addition, prior to the Closing, Opendoor will consummate the restructuring transactions as set forth in the Merger Agreement (the "Pre-Closing Restructuring"), and it is a condition to the obligations of SCH and Merger Sub to consummate the Merger that the Pre-Closing Restructuring has been completed.

 

Other conditions to Opendoor's obligations to consummate the Merger include, among others, that as of the Closing, (i) the Domestication has been completed, (ii) the amount of cash available in (x) the trust account into which substantially all of the proceeds of SCH's initial public offering and private placements of its warrants have been deposited for the benefit of SCH, certain of its public shareholders and the underwriters of SCH's initial public offering (the "Trust Account"), after deducting the amount required to satisfy SCH's obligations to its shareholders (if any) that exercise their rights to redeem their SCH Class A Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Cayman Constitutional Documents (but prior to payment of (a) any deferred underwriting commissions being held in the Trust Account and (b) any transaction expenses of SCH or its affiliates) (the "Trust Amount") plus (y) the PIPE Investment (as defined below), is at least equal to or greater than $550,000,000; provided, that there is a mutual condition that the Trust Amount plus the Third Party PIPE Investment (as defined in the Merger Agreement) be at least $200,000,000.

 

Covenants

 

The Merger Agreement contains additional covenants, including, among others, providing for (i) the parties to conduct their respective businesses in the ordinary course through the Closing, (ii) the parties to not initiate any negotiations or enter into any agreements for certain alternative transactions, (iii) Opendoor to prepare and deliver to SCH certain audited and unaudited consolidated financial statements of Opendoor, (iv) SCH to prepare and file a proxy / registration statement on Form S-4 and take certain other actions to obtain the requisite approval of SCH shareholders of certain proposals regarding the Business Combination (including the Domestication), and (v) the parties to use reasonable best efforts to obtain necessary approvals from governmental agencies.

Termination

 

The Merger Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Closing (i) by mutual written consent of SCH and Opendoor, (ii) by Opendoor, if certain approvals of the shareholders of SCH, to the extent required under the Merger Agreement, are not obtained as set forth therein or if there is a Modification in Recommendation (as defined in the Merger Agreement), (iii) by SCH, if certain approvals of the stockholders of Opendoor, to the extent required under the Merger Agreement, are not obtained within five business days after the proxy / registration statement on Form S-4 has been declared effective by the SEC and delivered or otherwise made available Opendoor’s stockholders, (iv) by either SCH or Opendoor in certain other circumstances set forth in the Merger Agreement, including (a) if any Governmental Authority (as defined in the Merger Agreement) shall have issued or otherwise entered a final, nonappealable order making consummation of the Merger illegal or otherwise preventing or prohibiting consummation of the Merger and (b) in the event of certain uncured breaches by the other party or if the Closing has not occurred on or before 180 days after the date of the Merger Agreement (the "Agreement End Date").

 

   

 

 

Certain Related Agreements

 

Subscription Agreements

 

As disclosed in the Previous Current Report, on September 15, 2020, concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, the Company entered into subscription agreements (the "Subscription Agreements") with certain investors (collectively, the "PIPE Investors"), pursuant to, and on the terms and subject to the conditions of which, the PIPE Investors have collectively subscribed for 60,005,000 shares of the SCH Common Stock for an aggregate purchase price equal to $600,050,000 million (the "PIPE Investment"), a portion of which is expected to be funded by (i) one or more affiliates of SCH Sponsor II LLC (the "Sponsor" and collectively, the "Sponsor Related PIPE Investors"), (ii) existing Opendoor investors (the "Opendoor-Related PIPE Investors") and (iii) certain additional investors (which may include mutual funds and existing shareholders of SCH). The PIPE Investment will be consummated substantially concurrently with the Closing.

 

The Subscription Agreements for the PIPE Investors (other than the Sponsor Related PIPE Investors and Opendoor-Related PIPE Investors, whose registration rights are governed by the Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement described below (the "Non-Insider PIPE Investors")), provide for certain registration rights. In particular, SCH is required to, as soon as practicable but no later than 30 calendar days following the Closing, submit to or file with the SEC a registration statement registering the resale of such shares. Additionally, SCH is required to 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 90th calendar day following the filing date thereof if the SEC notifies the Company that it will “review” the registration statement and (ii) the 10th business day after the date the Company is notified (orally or in writing, whichever is earlier) by the SEC that the registration statement will not be “reviewed” or will not be subject to further review. The Company must use commercially reasonable efforts to keep the registration statement effective until the earliest of: (i) the date the Non-Insider PIPE Investors no longer hold any registrable shares, (ii) the date all registrable shares held by the Non-Insider PIPE Investors may be sold without restriction under Rule 144 and (C) two years from the date of effectiveness of the registration statement.

 

The Subscription Agreements will terminate with no further force and effect upon the earliest to occur of: (a) such date and time as the Merger Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms; (b)  the mutual written agreement of the parties to such Subscription Agreement; (c) if any of the conditions to closing set forth in such Subscription Agreement are not satisfied on or prior to the Closing and, as a result thereof, the transactions contemplated by the Subscription Agreement fail to occur; and (d) March 31, 2021.

 

The foregoing description of the Subscription Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the form of Subscription Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Sponsor Support Agreement

 

As previously disclosed in the September 15 Current Report, on September 15, 2020, SCH announced entry into a Support Agreement (the "Sponsor Support Agreement"), by and among SCH, the Sponsor, and Opendoor, pursuant to which the Sponsor and each director of SCH agreed to, among other things, vote in favor of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, in each case, subject to the terms and conditions contemplated by the Sponsor Support Agreement.

 

Company Support Agreement

 

As previously disclosed in the September 15 Current Report, on September 15, 2020, SCH also announced entry into a Support Agreement (the "Company Support Agreement"), by and among SCH, Opendoor and certain stockholders of Opendoor (the "Key Stockholders"). Under the Company Support Agreement, the Key Stockholders agreed, within forty-eight hours following the SEC declaring effective the proxy statement/prospectus relating to the approval by SCH stockholders of the Business Combination, to execute and deliver a written consent with respect to the outstanding shares of Opendoor common stock and preferred stock held by the Key Stockholders adopting the Merger Agreement and related transactions and approving the Business Combination. The shares of Opendoor common stock and preferred stock that are owned by the Key Stockholders and subject to the Company Support Agreements represent a majority of the outstanding voting power of Opendoor common stock and preferred stock (on an as converted basis).

 

   

 

 

Transfer Restrictions and Registration Rights

 

The Merger Agreement contemplates that, at the Closing, SCH, Opendoor, the Major Company Stockholders (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and certain of their respective affiliates and will enter into an Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement (the "Registration Rights Agreement"), pursuant to which SCH will agree to register for resale, pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act, certain shares of SCH Common Stock and other equity securities of SCH that are held by the parties thereto from time to time. Additionally, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Bylaws of SCH contain certain restrictions on transfer with respect to the shares of SCH Common Stock held by the Sponsor or the former Opendoor stockholders immediately following Closing (the "Lock-up Shares"). Such restrictions begin at Closing and end on the earlier of (i) the date that is 180 days after Closing and (ii)(a) for 33.33% of the Lock-up Shares, the date on which the last reported sale price of SCH Common Stock equals or exceeds $12.50 per share for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 30 days after Closing and (b) for an additional 50% of the Lock-up Shares, the date on which the last reported sale price of SCH Common Stock equals or exceeds $15.00 per share for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 30 days Closing.

 

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement, Subscription Agreements, Sponsor Support Agreement and Company Support Agreement, and the transactions and documents contemplated thereby, is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement and the Company Support Agreement, copies of which are filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 2.1, Exhibit 10.1, Exhibit 10.2 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, and the terms of which are incorporated by reference herein.

 

The Merger Agreement, Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement and the Company Support Agreement have been included to provide investors with information regarding its terms. They are not intended to provide any other factual information about SCH or its affiliates. The representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in the Merger Agreement, the Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement, the Company Support Agreement and the other documents related thereto were made only for purposes of the Merger Agreement as of the specific dates therein, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Merger Agreement, the Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement and the Company Support 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 parties to the Merger Agreement, the Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement or Company Support 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 investors. Investors are not third-party beneficiaries under the Merger Agreement, the Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement or the Company Support 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 the parties thereto or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of representations and warranties may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, the Subscription Agreements, the Sponsor Support Agreement or the Company Support Agreement, as applicable, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the SCH's public disclosures.

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

 

The disclosure set forth above in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K with respect to the PIPE Investment is incorporated by reference in this Item 3.02. The shares of SCH Common Stock to be issued in connection with the PIPE Investment will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and will be issued in reliance on the exemption from registration requirements thereof provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

Additional Information and Where to Find It

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K relates to a proposed transaction between Opendoor and SCH. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute an offer to sell or exchange, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or exchange, any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, sale or exchange would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. SCH intends to file a registration statement on Form S-4 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which will include a document that serves as a prospectus and proxy statement of SCH, referred to as a proxy statement/prospectus. A proxy statement/prospectus will be sent to all SCH shareholders. SCH also will file other documents regarding the proposed transaction with the SEC. Before making any voting decision, investors and security holders of SCH are urged to read the registration statement, the proxy statement/prospectus and all other relevant documents filed or that will be filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed transaction as they become available because they will contain important information about the proposed transaction.

 

   

 

 

Investors and security holders will be able to obtain free copies of the registration statement, the proxy statement/prospectus and all other relevant documents filed or that will be filed with the SEC by SCH through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov.

 

The documents filed by SCH with the SEC also may be obtained free of charge at SCH's website at http://www.socialcapitalhedosophiaholdings.com/docsb.html or upon written request to 317 University Ave, Suite 200, Palo Alto, California 94301.

 

Participants in Solicitation

 

SCH and its directors and executive officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from SCH's shareholders in connection with the proposed transaction. A list of the names of such directors and executive officers and information regarding their interests in the business combination will be contained in the proxy statement/prospectus when available. You may obtain free copies of these documents as described in the preceding paragraph.

 

Forward-Looking Statements Legend

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws with respect to the proposed transaction between Opendoor and SCH. These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words "believe," "project," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," "strategy," "future," "opportunity," "plan," "may," "should," "will," "would," "will be," "will continue," "will likely result," and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this document, including but not limited to: (i) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the price of SCH's securities, (ii) the risk that the transaction may not be completed by SCH's business combination deadline and the potential failure to obtain an extension of the business combination deadline if sought by SCH, (iii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the adoption of the Merger Agreement by the shareholders of SCH, the satisfaction of the minimum Trust Account amount following redemptions by SCH's public shareholders and the receipt of certain governmental and regulatory approvals, (iv) the lack of a third party valuation in determining whether or not to pursue the proposed transaction, (v) the inability to complete the PIPE Investment, (vi) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement, (vii) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on Opendoor's business relationships, operating results, and business generally, (viii) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of Opendoor, (ix) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Opendoor or against SCH related to the Merger Agreement or the proposed transaction, (x) the ability to maintain the listing of SCH's securities on a national securities exchange, (xi) changes in the competitive and regulated industries in which Opendoor operates, variations in operating performance across competitors, changes in laws and regulations affecting Opendoor's business and changes in the combined capital structure, (xii) the ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations after the completion of the proposed transaction, and identify and realize additional opportunities, and (xiii) the risk of downturns and a changing regulatory landscape in the highly competitive residential real estate industry. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the "Risk Factors" section of SCH's registration on Form S-1 (File No. 333-237864), the registration statement on Form S-4 discussed above and other documents filed by SCH from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Opendoor and SCH assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Neither Opendoor nor SCH gives any assurance that either Opendoor or SCH, or the combined company, will achieve its expectations.

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, if such fact, circumstance or action would be reasonably expected to cause the Merger to fail to qualify as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations. The Merger shall be reported by the parties for all Tax purposes in accordance with the foregoing, unless otherwise required by a Governmental Authority as a result of a “determination” within the meaning of Section 1313(a) of the Code. The parties shall cooperate with each other and their respective counsel to document and support the Tax treatment of the Merger as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code, including providing factual support letters.

(b)         At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Acquiror or Merger Sub, each share of Merger Sub Capital Stock, shall be converted into a share of common stock, par value $0.0001 of the Surviving Corporation.

 

(c)         Each holder of shares of Company Common Stock (after giving effect to the consummation of the Pre-Closing Restructuring) as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than in respect of (x) Treasury Shares, (y) Dissenting Shares, and (z) any shares of Company Common Stock subject to Company Awards (which shall be subject to Section 3.3)) shall be entitled to receive a portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration equal to (i) the Exchange Ratio, multiplied by (ii) the number of shares of Company Common Stock held by such holder as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, with fractional shares rounded down to the nearest whole share.

 

(d)         Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no fractional shares of Acquiror Common Stock shall be issued in the Merger.

 

Section 3.2.         Exchange Procedures

 

(a)         Prior to the Closing, Acquiror shall appoint an exchange agent (the “Exchange Agent”) to act as the agent for the purpose of paying the Aggregate Merger Consideration to the Company’s stockholders. At or before the Effective Time, Acquiror shall deposit with the Exchange Agent the number of shares of Acquiror Common Stock equal to the portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration to be paid in shares of Acquiror Common Stock.

 

(b)         Reasonably promptly after the Effective Time, Acquiror shall send or shall cause the Exchange Agent to send, to each record holder of shares of Company Common Stock as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, whose Company Common Stock was converted pursuant to Section 3.1(a) into the right to receive a portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration, a letter of transmittal and instructions (which shall specify that the delivery shall be effected, and the risk of loss and title shall pass, only upon proper transfer of each share to the Exchange Agent, and which letter of transmittal will be in customary form and have such other provisions as Acquiror may reasonably specify) for use in such exchange (each, a “Letter of Transmittal”).

 

 24 

 

 

(c)          Each holder of shares of Company Common Stock that have been converted into the right to receive a portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration, pursuant to Section 3.1(a), shall be entitled to receive such portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration, upon receipt of an “agent’s message” by the Exchange Agent (or such other evidence, if any, of transfer as the Exchange Agent may reasonably request), together with a duly completed and validly executed Letter of Transmittal and such other documents as may reasonably be requested by the Exchange Agent. No interest shall be paid or accrued upon the transfer of any share.

 

(d)          Promptly following the date that is one (1) year after the Effective Time, Acquiror shall instruct the Exchange Agent to deliver to Acquiror all documents in its possession relating to the transactions contemplated hereby, and the Exchange Agent’s duties shall terminate. Thereafter, any portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration that remains unclaimed shall be returned to Acquiror, and any Person that was a holder of shares of Company Common Stock as of immediately prior to the Effective Time that has not exchanged such shares of Company Common Stock for an applicable portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration in accordance with this Section 3.2 prior to the date that is one (1) year after the Effective Time, may transfer such shares of Company Common Stock to Acquiror and (subject to applicable abandoned property, escheat and similar Laws) receive in consideration therefor, and Acquiror shall promptly deliver, such applicable portion of the Aggregate Merger Consideration without any interest thereupon. None of Acquiror, Merger Sub, the Company, the Surviving Corporation or the Exchange Agent shall be liable to any Person in respect of any of the Aggregate Merger Consideration delivered to a public official pursuant to and in accordance with any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar Laws. If any such shares shall not have not been transferred immediately prior to such date on which any amounts payable pursuant to this Article III would otherwise escheat to or become the property of any Governmental Authority, any such amounts shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, become the property of the Surviving Corporation, free and clear of all claims or interest of any Person previously entitled thereto.

 

Section 3.3.         Treatment of Company Options, Restricted Stock Awards and Restricted Stock Unit Awards.

 

(a)          As of the Effective Time, each Company Option that is then outstanding shall be converted into the right to receive, an option relating to shares of Domesticated Acquiror Common Stock upon substantially the same terms and conditions as are in effect with respect to such option immediately prior to the Effective Time, including with respect to vesting and termination-related provisions (each, an “Acquiror Option”) except that (a) such Acquiror Option shall relate to that whole number of shares of Domesticated Acquiror Common Stock (rounded down to the nearest whole share) equal to the number of Company Common Shares subject to such Company Option, multiplied by the Exchange Ratio, and (b) the exercise price per share for each such Acquiror Option shall be equal to the exercise price per share of such Company Option in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, divided by the Exchange Ratio (the exercise price per share, as so determined, being rounded up to the nearest full cent); provided, however, that the conversion of the Company Options will be made in a manner consistent with Treasury Regulation Section 1.424-1, such that such conversion will not constitute a “modification” of such Company Options for purposes of Section 409A or Section 424 of the Code.

 

 25

(c)          As of the Effective Time, each Restricted Stock Unit Award that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into the right to receive restricted stock units based on shares of Domesticated Acquiror Common Stock (each, an “Adjusted Restricted Stock Unit Award”) with substantially the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such Restricted Stock Unit Award immediately prior to the Effective Time (including with respect to vesting and termination-related provisions), except that such Adjusted Restricted Stock Unit Award shall relate to such number of shares of Domesticated Acquiror Common Stock as is equal to the product of (i) the number of shares of Company Common Stock subject to such Restricted Stock Unit Award immediately prior to the Effective Time, multiplied by (ii) the Exchange Ratio, with any fractional shares rounded down to the nearest whole share.

 

(d)         The Company shall take all necessary actions to effect the treatment of Company Options, Restricted Stock Awards and Restricted Stock Unit Awards pursuant to Sections 3.3(a), 3.3(b) and 3.3(c) in accordance with the Company Incentive Plan and the applicable award agreements and to ensure that no Acquiror Option may be exercised prior to the effective date of an applicable Form S-8 (or other applicable form, including Form S-1 or Form S-3) of Acquiror. The Board of Directors of the Company shall amend the Company Incentive Plan and take all other necessary actions, effective as of immediately prior to the Closing, in order to (i) cancel the remaining unallocated share reserve under the Company Incentive Plan and provide that shares in respect of Company Awards that for any reason become re-eligible for future issuance, shall be cancelled, (ii) provide that no new Company Awards will be granted under the Company Incentive Plan, and (iii) provide that no Company Options shall be subject to the Option Exchange Program, as defined therein.

The Company shall provide Acquiror prompt written notice of any demands received by the Company for appraisal of shares of Company Common Stock, any waiver or withdrawal of any such demand, and any other demand, notice, or instrument delivered to the Company prior to the Effective Time that relates to such demand. Except with the prior written consent of Acquiror (which consent shall not be unreasonably conditioned, withheld, delayed or denied), the Company shall not make any payment with respect to, or settle, or offer to settle, any such demands.

As of the date of this Agreement, Acquiror has at least $414,000,000.00 in the Trust Account (including, if applicable, an aggregate of approximately $14,490,000.00 of deferred underwriting commissions and other fees being held in the Trust Account), such monies invested in United States government securities or money market funds meeting certain conditions under Rule 2a-7 promulgated under the Investment Company Act pursuant to the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated as of April 27, 2020, between Acquiror and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as trustee (the “Trustee”) (the “Trust Agreement”). There are no separate Contracts, side letters or other arrangements or understandings (whether written or unwritten, express or implied) that would cause the description of the Trust Agreement in the Acquiror SEC Filings to be inaccurate or that would entitle any Person (other than shareholders of Acquiror holding Acquiror Common Shares sold in Acquiror’s initial public offering who shall have elected to redeem their shares of Acquiror Common Stock pursuant to Acquiror’s Governing Documents and the underwriters of Acquiror’s initial public offering with respect to deferred underwriting commissions) 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 other than to pay Taxes and payments with respect to all Acquiror Share Redemptions. There are no claims or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of Acquiror, threatened with respect to the Trust Account. Acquiror has performed all material obligations required to be performed by it to date under, and is not in default, breach or delinquent in performance or any other respect (claimed or actual) in connection with, the Trust Agreement, and no event has occurred which, with due notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute such a default or breach thereunder. As of the Effective Time, the obligations of Acquiror to dissolve or liquidate pursuant to Acquiror’s Governing Documents shall terminate, and as of the Effective Time, Acquiror shall have no obligation whatsoever pursuant to Acquiror’s Governing Documents to dissolve and liquidate the assets of Acquiror by reason of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby. To Acquiror’s knowledge, as of the date hereof, following the Effective Time, no Acquiror Shareholder shall be entitled to receive any amount from the Trust Account except to the extent such Acquiror Shareholder is exercising an Acquiror Share 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, neither Acquiror or Merger Sub 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 Acquiror and Merger Sub on the Closing Date.

For and in consideration of Acquiror entering into this Agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company hereby irrevocably waives any right, title, interest or claim of any kind they have or may have in the future in or to any monies in the Trust Account and agree not to seek recourse against the Trust Account or any funds distributed therefrom as a result of, or arising out of, this Agreement and any negotiations, Contracts or agreements with Acquiror; provided, that (x) nothing herein shall serve to limit or prohibit the Company’s right to pursue a claim against Acquiror for legal relief against monies or other assets held outside the Trust Account, for specific performance or other equitable relief in connection with the consummation of the transactions (including a claim for Acquiror to specifically perform its obligations under this Agreement and cause the disbursement of the balance of the cash remaining in the Trust Account (after giving effect to the Acquiror Share Redemptions) to the Company in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Trust Agreement) so long as such claim would not affect Acquiror’s ability to fulfill its obligation to effectuate the Acquiror Share Redemptions, or for fraud and (y) nothing herein shall serve to limit or prohibit any claims that the Company may have in the future against Acquiror’s assets or funds that are not held in the Trust Account (including any funds that have been released from the Trust Account and any assets that have been purchased or acquired with any such funds).

Exhibit 10.1

 

EXECUTION VERSION

 

SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT

 

This SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT (this “Subscription Agreement”) is entered into on September 15, 2020, by and between Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. II, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“IPOB”), and the undersigned subscriber (the “Investor”).

 

WHEREAS, this Subscription Agreement is being entered into in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of the date hereof (as may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Transaction Agreement”), by and among IPOB, Opendoor Labs Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), Hestia Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation (“IPOB Merger Sub”), and the other parties thereto, pursuant to which, among other things, IPOB Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company as the surviving company in the merger and, after giving effect to such merger, becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of IPOB, and IPOB will change its name to “Opendoor Technologies Inc.”, on the terms and subject to the conditions therein (the “Transaction”);

 

WHEREAS, prior to the closing of the Transaction (and as more fully described in the Transaction Agreement), IPOB will domesticate as a Delaware corporation in accordance with Section 388 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and Part XII of the Cayman Islands Companies Law (2020 Revision) (the “Domestication”);

 

WHEREAS, in connection with the Transaction, IPOB is seeking commitments from interested investors to purchase, following the Domestication and prior to the closing of the Transaction, shares of IPOB’s Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share, as such shares will exist as common stock following the Domestication (the “Shares”), in a private placement for a purchase price of $10.00 per share (the “Per Share Subscription Price”);

 

WHEREAS, the aggregate purchase price to be paid by the Investor for the subscribed Shares (as set forth on the signature page hereto) is referred to herein as the “Subscription Amount;” and

 

WHEREAS, substantially concurrently with the execution of this Subscription Agreement, IPOB is entering into: (a) separate subscription agreements with certain other investors that are existing directors, officers or equityholders (including, for the avoidance of doubt, holders of convertible securities) of the Company, IPOB, SCH Sponsor II LLC, a Cayman Islands limited liability company, and/or their respective affiliates with an aggregate purchase price of $200,050,000 (collectively, the “Insider PIPE Investors” and, such investment, the “Insider PIPE Investment”); and (b) separate subscription agreements (collectively, the “Other Subscription Agreements”) with certain investors (other than the Insider PIPE Investors) with an aggregate purchase price of $400,000,000 (inclusive of the Subscription Amount) (together with the Insider PIPE Investment, the “PIPE Investment”).

 

NOW, THEREFORE, 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 IPOB acknowledges and agrees as follows:

 

1.            Subscription. The Investor hereby irrevocably subscribes for and agrees to purchase from IPOB 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, as a result of the Domestication, the Shares that will be issued pursuant hereto shall be shares of common stock in a Delaware corporation (and not shares in a Cayman Islands exempted company).

 

2.            Closing. The closing of the sale of the Shares contemplated hereby (the “Closing”) shall occur on the closing date (the “Closing Date”) and be conditioned upon the prior or substantially concurrent consummation of the Transaction. Upon  delivery of written notice from (or on behalf of) IPOB to the Investor (the “Closing Notice”), that IPOB reasonably expects all conditions to the closing of the Transaction to be satisfied or waived on an expected closing date that is not less than five (5) business days from the date on which the Closing Notice is delivered to the Investor, the Investor shall deliver to IPOB, three (3) business days prior to the expected closing date specified in the Closing Notice, the Subscription Amount by wire transfer of United States dollars in immediately available funds to the account(s) specified by IPOB in the Closing Notice. On or prior to the Closing Date, IPOB shall issue the Shares to the Investor and subsequently cause the Shares to be registered in book entry form in the name of the Investor on IPOB’s share register. For purposes of this Subscription Agreement, “business day” shall mean a day, other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks in New York, New York or governmental authorities in the Cayman Islands (for so long as IPOB remains domiciled in Cayman Islands) are authorized or required by law to close. Prior to or at the Closing, Investor shall deliver to IPOB a duly completed and executed Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 or appropriate Form W-8. In the event the Closing Date does not occur within two (2) business days after the expected closing date specified in the Closing Notice, IPOB shall promptly (but not later than two (2) business days thereafter) return the Subscription Amount to the Investor by wire transfer of U.S. dollars in immediately available funds to the account specified by the Investor, and any book-entries for the Shares shall be deemed cancelled; provided that, unless this Subscription Agreement has been terminated pursuant to Section 8 hereof, such return of funds shall not terminate this Subscription Agreement or relieve the Investor of its obligation to purchase the Shares at the Closing.

 

 

 

 

3.            Closing Conditions. The obligation of the parties hereto to consummate the purchase and sale of the Shares pursuant to this Subscription Agreement is subject to the following conditions: (a) there shall not be in force any injunction or order enjoining or prohibiting the issuance and sale of the Shares under this Subscription Agreement; and (b) the terms of the Transaction Agreement (including the conditions thereto) shall not have been amended or waived in a manner that is materially adverse to the Investor (in its capacity as such).

 

4.            Further Assurances. At the Closing, the parties hereto shall execute and deliver such additional documents and take such additional actions as the parties reasonably may deem to be practical and necessary in order to consummate the subscription as contemplated by this Subscription Agreement.

 

5.            IPOB Representations and Warranties. IPOB represents and warrants to the Investor, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, that:

 

(a)            IPOB is an exempted company duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the Cayman Islands (to the extent such concept exists in such jurisdiction). IPOB has all power (corporate or otherwise) and authority to own, lease and operate its properties and conduct its business as presently conducted and to enter into, deliver and perform its obligations under this Subscription Agreement. As of the Closing Date, following the Domestication, IPOB will be duly incorporated, validly existing as a corporation and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware.

 

(b)            As of the Closing Date, the Shares will be duly authorized and, when issued and delivered to the Investor against full payment therefor in accordance with the terms of this Subscription Agreement, the Shares will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and will not have been issued in violation of or subject to any preemptive or similar rights created under IPOB’s certificate of incorporation (as in effect at such time of issuance) or under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

 

(c)            This Subscription Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by IPOB and, assuming that this Subscription Agreement constitutes the valid and binding agreement of the Investor, this Subscription Agreement is enforceable against IPOB 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, or (ii) principles of equity, whether considered at law or equity.

 

(d)            The issuance and sale by IPOB of the Shares pursuant to this Subscription Agreement will not conflict with or result in a breach or violation of any of the terms or provisions of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation or imposition of any lien, charge or encumbrance upon any of the property or assets of IPOB or any of its subsidiaries pursuant to the terms of (i) any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan agreement, lease, license or other agreement or instrument to which IPOB or any of its subsidiaries is a party or by which IPOB or any of its subsidiaries is bound or to which any of the property or assets of IPOB is subject that would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or results of operations of IPOB and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole (a “Material Adverse Effect”), or materially affect the validity of the Shares or the legal authority of IPOB to comply in all material respects with its obligations under this Subscription Agreement; (ii) result in any violation of the provisions of the organizational documents of IPOB; or (iii) result in any violation of any statute or any judgment, order, rule or regulation of any court or governmental agency or body, domestic or foreign, having jurisdiction over IPOB or any of its properties that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect or materially affect the validity of the Shares or the legal authority of IPOB to comply in all material respects with its obligations under this Subscription Agreement.

 

2

 

 

(e)            As of their respective filing dates, all reports required to be filed by IPOB with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) since April 30, 2020 (the “SEC Reports”) complied in all material respects with the applicable requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the rules and regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder. As of the date hereof, there are no material outstanding or unresolved comments in comment letters received by IPOB from the staff of the Division of Corporation Finance of the SEC with respect to any of the SEC Reports.

 

(f)            IPOB is not required to obtain any consent, waiver, authorization or order of, give any notice to, or make any filing or registration with, any court or other federal, state, local or other governmental authority, self-regulatory organization or other person in connection with the issuance of the Shares pursuant to this Subscription Agreement, other than (i)  filings with the SEC, (ii) filings required by applicable state securities laws, (iii) the filings required in accordance with Section 12 of this Subscription Agreement; (iv) those required by the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) or Nasdaq, including with respect to obtaining approval of IPOB’s stockholders, and (v) the failure of which to obtain would not be reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect.

 

(g)            As of the date hereof, IPOB has not received any written communication from a governmental authority that alleges that IPOB is not in compliance with or is in default or violation of any applicable law, except where such non-compliance, default or violation would not reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect.

 

(h)            Assuming the accuracy of the Investor’s representations and warranties set forth in Section 6 of this Subscription Agreement, no registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), is required for the offer and sale of the Shares by IPOB to the Investor.

 

(i)             Neither IPOB nor any person acting on its behalf has offered or sold the Shares by any form of general solicitation or general advertising in violation of the Securities Act.

 

(j)             As of the date hereof, the issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares of IPOB are registered pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. Following the Domestication, the Shares are expected to be registered under the Exchange Act.

 

(k)            IPOB is not under any obligation to pay any broker’s fee or commission in connection with the sale of the Shares other than to the Placement Agent.

 

(l)            The Other Subscription Agreements reflect the same Per Share Subscription Price and other terms with respect to the purchase of the Shares that are no more favorable to such subscriber thereunder than the terms of this Subscription Agreement, other than terms particular to the regulatory requirements of such subscriber or its affiliates or related funds. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 5(l) shall not apply to any document entered into in connection with the Insider PIPE Investment; provided, however, that such Insider PIPE Investment shall be with respect to the same class of Class A common stock being acquired by the Investor hereunder and at the same Per Share Subscription Price.

 

6.           Investor Representations and Warranties. The Investor represents and warrants to IPOB, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing date, that:

 

(a)            The Investor (i) is a “qualified institutional buyer” (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act) or an institutional “accredited investor” (within the meaning of Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3), (7) or (8) under the Securities Act), in each case, satisfying the applicable requirements set forth on Schedule A, (ii) is acquiring the Shares only for his, her or its own account and not for the account of others, or if the Investor is subscribing for the Shares as a fiduciary or agent for one or more investor accounts, the Investor has full investment discretion with respect to each such account, and the full power and authority to make the acknowledgements, representations and agreements herein on behalf of each owner of each such account, and (iii) is not acquiring the Shares with a view to, or for offer or sale in connection with, any distribution thereof in violation of the Securities Act (and shall provide the requested information set forth on Schedule A). The Investor is not an entity formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Shares.

(b)            The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Shares are being offered in a transaction not involving any public offering within the meaning of the Securities Act, that the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act and that IPOB is not required to register the Shares except as set forth in Section 7 of this Subscription Agreement. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Shares may not be offered, resold, transferred, pledged or otherwise disposed of by the Investor absent an effective registration statement under the Securities Act except (i) to IPOB or a subsidiary thereof, (ii) to non-U.S. persons pursuant to offers and sales that occur outside the United States within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act or (iii) pursuant to another applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and, in each case, in accordance with any applicable securities laws of the states of the United States and other applicable jurisdictions, and that any certificates representing the Shares shall contain a restrictive legend to such effect. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Shares will be subject to these securities law transfer restrictions and, as a result of these transfer restrictions, the Investor may not be able to readily offer, resell, transfer, pledge or otherwise dispose of the Shares and may be required to bear the financial risk of an investment in the Shares for an indefinite period of time. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Shares will not immediately be eligible for offer, resale, transfer, pledge or disposition pursuant to Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act, and that the provisions of Rule 144(i) will apply to the Shares. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that it has been advised to consult legal, tax and accounting prior to making any offer, resale, transfer, pledge or disposition of any of the Shares.

 

(c)            The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Investor is purchasing the Shares from IPOB. The Investor further acknowledges that there have been no representations, warranties, covenants and agreements made to the Investor by or on behalf of IPOB, the Company, any of their respective affiliates or any control persons, officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives of any of the foregoing or any other person or entity, expressly or by implication, other than those representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of IPOB expressly set forth in Section 5 of this Subscription Agreement.

 

(d)            The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Investor has received such information as the Investor deems necessary in order to make an investment decision with respect to the Shares, including, with respect to IPOB, the Transaction and the business of the Company and its subsidiaries. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Investor acknowledges that he, she or it has reviewed IPOB’s filings with the SEC. The Investor acknowledges and agrees that the Investor and the Investor’s professional advisor(s), if any, have had the full opportunity to ask such questions, receive such answers and obtain such information as the Investor and such Investor’s professional advisor(s), if any, have deemed necessary to make an investment decision with respect to the Shares.

 

(e)            The Investor became aware of this offering of the Shares solely by means of direct contact between the Investor and IPOB, the Company or a representative of IPOB or the Company, and the Shares were offered to the Investor solely by direct contact between the Investor and IPOB, the Company or a representative of IPOB or the Company. The Investor did not become aware of this offering of the Shares, nor were the Shares offered to the Investor, by any other means. The Investor acknowledges that the Shares (i) were not offered by any form of general solicitation or general advertising and (ii) are not being offered in a manner involving a public offering under, or in a distribution in violation of, the Securities Act, or any state securities laws. The Investor acknowledges that it is not relying upon, and has not relied upon, any statement, representation or warranty made by any person, firm or corporation (including, without limitation, IPOB, the Company, the Placement Agent, any of their respective affiliates or any control persons, officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives of any of the foregoing), other than the representations and warranties of IPOB contained in Section 5 of this Subscription Agreement, in making its investment or decision to invest in IPOB.

 

(f)            The Investor acknowledges that it is aware that there are substantial risks incident to the purchase and ownership of the Shares, including those set forth in IPOB’s filings with the SEC. The Investor has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares, and the Investor has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as the Investor has considered necessary to make an informed investment decision. The Investor acknowledges that Investor shall be responsible for any of the Investor’s tax liabilities that may arise as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Subscription Agreement, and that neither IPOB nor the Company has provided any tax advice or any other representation or guarantee regarding the tax consequences of the transactions contemplated by the Subscription Agreement.

(g)           Alone, or together with any professional advisor(s), the Investor has adequately analyzed and fully considered the risks of an investment in the Shares and determined that the Shares are a suitable investment for the Investor and that the Investor is able at this time and in the foreseeable future to bear the economic risk of a total loss of the Investor’s investment in IPOB. The Investor acknowledges specifically that a possibility of total loss exists.

 

(h)           In making its decision to purchase the Shares, the Investor has relied solely upon independent investigation made by the Investor and the representations and warranties in Section 5. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Investor has not relied on any statements or other information provided by or on behalf of the Placement Agent or any of their respective affiliates or any control persons, officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives of any of the foregoing concerning IPOB, 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.

(k)           The execution, delivery and performance by the Investor of this Subscription Agreement are within the powers of the Investor, have been duly authorized and will not constitute or result in a breach or default under or conflict with any order, ruling or regulation of any court or other tribunal or of any governmental commission or agency, or any agreement or other undertaking, to which the Investor is a party or by which the Investor is bound, and, if the Investor is not a natural person, will not violate any provisions of the Investor’s organizational documents, including, without limitation, its incorporation or formation papers, bylaws, indenture of trust or partnership or operating agreement, as may be applicable. The signature of the Investor on this Subscription Agreement is genuine, and the signatory, if the Investor is a natural person, has legal competence and capacity to execute the same or, if the Investor is not a natural person, the signatory has been duly authorized to execute the same, and, assuming that this Subscription Agreement constitutes the valid and binding agreement of IPOB, 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)            Neither the Investor nor, if the Investor is not a natural person, any of its officers, directors, managers, managing members, general partners or any other person acting in a similar capacity or carrying out a similar function, is (i) a person named on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List, the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List, the Sectoral Sanctions Identification List, or any other similar list of sanctioned persons administered by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), or any similar list of sanctioned persons administered by the European Union or any individual European Union member state, including the United Kingdom (collectively, “Sanctions Lists”); (ii) directly or indirectly owned or controlled by, or acting on behalf of, one or more persons on a Sanctions 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, Venezuela, the Crimea region of Ukraine, or any other country or territory embargoed or subject to substantial trade restrictions by the United States, the European Union or any individual European Union member state, including the United Kingdom; (iv) a Designated National as defined in the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, 31 C.F.R.

The Investor represents that if it is a financial institution subject to the Bank Secrecy Act (31 U.S.C. Section 5311 et seq.) (the “BSA”), as amended by the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 (the “PATRIOT Act”), and its implementing regulations (collectively, the “BSA/PATRIOT Act”), that the Investor maintains policies and procedures reasonably designed to comply with applicable obligations under the BSA/PATRIOT Act. The Investor also represents that it maintains policies and procedures reasonably designed to ensure compliance with sanctions administered by the United States, the European Union, or any individual European Union member state, including the United Kingdom, to the extent applicable to it.

(o)            None of the Placement Agent, nor any of its affiliates, nor any control persons, officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives of any of the foregoing has made any independent investigation with respect to IPOB, the Company or its subsidiaries or any of their respective businesses, or the Shares or the accuracy, completeness or adequacy of any information supplied to the Investor by IPOB.

 

(p)            In connection with the issue and purchase of the Shares, the Placement Agent has not acted as the Investor’s financial advisor or fiduciary.

7.            Registration Rights.

 

(a)            IPOB agrees that, within thirty (30) calendar days following the Closing Date (such deadline, the “Filing Deadline”), IPOB will submit to or file with the SEC a registration statement for a shelf registration on Form S-1 or Form S-3 (if the Company is then eligible to use a Form S-3 shelf registration) (the “Registration Statement”), in each case, covering the resale of the Shares acquired by the Investor pursuant to this Agreement which are eligible for registration (determined as of two (2) business days prior to such submission or filing) (the “Registrable Shares”) and IPOB 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 90th calendar day following the filing date thereof if the SEC notifies IPOB that it will “review” the Registration Statement and (ii) the 10th business day after the date IPOB is notified (orally or in writing, whichever is earlier) by the SEC that the Registration Statement will not be “reviewed” or will not be subject to further review (such earlier date, the “Effectiveness Deadline”); provided, however, that IPOB’s obligations to include the Registrable Shares in the Registration Statement are contingent upon Investor furnishing in writing to IPOB such information regarding Investor, the securities of IPOB held by Investor and the intended method of disposition of the Registrable Shares (which shall be limited to non-underwritten public offerings) as shall be reasonably requested by IPOB to effect the registration of the Registrable Shares, and Investor shall execute such documents in connection with such registration as IPOB may reasonably request that are customary of a selling stockholder in similar situations, including providing that IPOB shall be entitled to postpone and suspend the effectiveness or use of the Registration Statement, if applicable, during any customary blackout or similar period or as permitted hereunder; provided that Investor shall not in connection with the foregoing be required to execute any lock-up or similar agreement or otherwise be subject to any contractual restriction on the ability to transfer the Registrable Shares. For as long as the Investor holds Shares, IPOB will use commercially reasonable efforts to file all reports for so long as the condition in Rule 144(c)(1) (or Rule 144(i)(2), if applicable) is required to be satisfied, and provide all customary and reasonable cooperation, necessary to enable the undersigned to resell the Shares pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act (in each case, when Rule 144 of the Securities Act becomes available to the Investors). Any failure by IPOB to file the Registration Statement by the Filing Deadline or to effect such Registration Statement by the Effectiveness Deadline shall not otherwise relieve IPOB of its obligations to file or effect the Registration Statement as set forth above in this Section 7.

 

6

 

 

(b)           At its expense IPOB shall:

 

(i)          except for such times as IPOB is permitted hereunder to suspend the use of the prospectus forming part of a Registration Statement, use its commercially reasonable efforts to keep such registration, and any qualification, exemption or compliance under state securities laws which IPOB determines to obtain, continuously effective with respect to Investor, and to keep the applicable Registration Statement or any subsequent shelf registration statement free of any material misstatements or omissions, until the earlier of the following: (A) Investor ceases to hold any Registrable Shares, (B) the date all Registrable Shares held by Investor may be sold without restriction under Rule 144, including without limitation, any volume and manner of sale restrictions which may be applicable to affiliates under Rule 144 and without the requirement for IPOB to be in compliance with the current public information required under Rule 144(c)(1) (or Rule 144(i)(2), if applicable), and (C) two years from the date of effectiveness of the Registration Statement. The period of time during which IPOB is required hereunder to keep a Registration Statement effective is referred to herein as the “Registration Period”;

 

(ii)          advise Investor, as expeditiously as possible:

 

(1)            when a Registration Statement or any amendment thereto has been filed with the SEC;

 

(2)            after it shall receive notice or obtain knowledge thereof, of the issuance by the SEC of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration Statement or the initiation of any proceedings for such purpose;

 

(3)            of the receipt by IPOB of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of the Registrable Shares included therein for sale in any jurisdiction or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such purpose; and

 

(4)            subject to the provisions in this Subscription Agreement, of the occurrence of any event that requires the making of any changes in any Registration Statement or prospectus so that, as of such date, the statements therein are not misleading and do not omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of a prospectus, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading.

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, IPOB shall not, when so advising Investor of such events, provide Investor with any material, nonpublic information regarding IPOB other than to the extent that providing notice to Investor of the occurrence of the events listed in (1) through (4) above constitutes material, nonpublic information regarding IPOB;

 

7

 

 

(iii)           use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration Statement as soon as reasonably practicable;

 

(iv)          upon the occurrence of any event contemplated in Section 7(b)(ii)(4) above, except for such times as IPOB is permitted hereunder to suspend, and has suspended, the use of a prospectus forming part of a Registration Statement, IPOB shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to as soon as reasonably practicable prepare a post-effective amendment to such Registration Statement or a supplement to the related prospectus, or file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered to purchasers of the Registrable Shares included therein, such prospectus will not include any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading;

 

(v)           use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause all Registrable Shares to be listed on each securities exchange or market, if any, on which the Class A Shares issued by IPOB have been listed;

 

(vi)           use its commercially reasonable efforts to allow the Investor to review disclosure regarding the Investor in the Registration Statement; and

 

(vii)         otherwise, in good faith, cooperate reasonably with, and take such customary actions as may reasonably be requested by the Investor, consistent with the terms of this Agreement, in connection with the registration of the Registrable Shares.

 

(c)          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Subscription Agreement, IPOB shall be entitled to delay the filing or effectiveness of, or suspend the use of, the Registration Statement if it determines that in order for the Registration Statement not to contain a material misstatement or omission, (i) 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, (ii) the negotiation or consummation of a transaction by IPOB or its subsidiaries is pending or an event has occurred, which negotiation, consummation or event IPOB’s board of directors reasonably believes would require additional disclosure by IPOB in the Registration Statement of material information that IPOB has a bona fide business purpose for keeping confidential and the non-disclosure of which in the Registration Statement would be expected, in the reasonable determination of IPOB’s board of directors to cause the Registration Statement to fail to comply with applicable disclosure requirements, or (iii) in the good faith judgment of the majority of IPOB’s board of directors, such filing or effectiveness or use of such Registration Statement, would be seriously detrimental to the Company and the majority of the IPOB board or directors concludes as a result that it is essential to defer such filing (each such circumstance, a “Suspension Event”); provided, however, that IPOB may not delay or suspend the Registration Statement on more than three occasions or for more than ninety (90) consecutive calendar days, or more than one hundred and twenty (120) total calendar days in each case during any twelve-month period. Upon receipt of any written notice from IPOB of the happening of any Suspension Event during the period that the Registration Statement is effective or if as a result of a Suspension Event the Registration Statement or related prospectus contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits 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, in the case of the prospectus) not misleading, Investor agrees that (i) it will immediately discontinue offers and sales of the Registrable Shares under the Registration Statement (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, sales conducted pursuant to Rule 144) until Investor receives copies of a supplemental or amended prospectus (which IPOB agrees to promptly prepare) that corrects the misstatement(s) or omission(s) referred to above and receives notice that any post-effective amendment has become effective or unless otherwise notified by IPOB that it may resume such offers and sales, and (ii) it will maintain the confidentiality of any information included in such written notice delivered by IPOB unless otherwise required by law or subpoena. If so directed by IPOB, Investor will deliver to IPOB or, in Investor’s sole discretion destroy, all copies of the prospectus covering the Registrable Shares in Investor’s possession; provided, however, that this obligation to deliver or destroy all copies of the prospectus covering the Registrable Shares shall not apply (A) to the extent Investor is required to retain a copy of such prospectus (1) in order to comply with applicable legal, regulatory, self-regulatory or professional requirements or (2) in accordance with a bona fide pre-existing document retention policy or (B) to copies stored electronically on archival servers as a result of automatic data back-up.

(d)          Indemnification.

 

(i)            IPOB agrees to indemnify, to the extent permitted by law, Investor (to the extent a seller under the Registration Statement), its directors and officers and each person who controls Investor (within the meaning of the Securities Act), to the extent permitted by law, against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and reasonable and documented out of pocket expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees of one law firm) caused by any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in any Registration Statement, prospectus included in any Registration Statement (“Prospectus”) or preliminary Prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or 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 a Prospectus, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, except insofar as the same are caused by or contained in any information or affidavit so furnished in writing to IPOB by or on behalf of such Investor expressly for use therein.

 

(ii)            In connection with any Registration Statement in which an Investor is participating, such Investor shall furnish (or cause to be furnished) to IPOB in writing such information and affidavits as IPOB reasonably requests for use in connection with any such Registration Statement or Prospectus and, to the extent permitted by law, shall indemnify IPOB, its directors and officers and each person or entity who controls IPOB (within the meaning of the Securities Act) against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable outside attorneys’ fees) resulting from any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained or incorporated by reference in any Registration Statement, Prospectus or preliminary Prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or 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 a Prospectus, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, but only to the extent that such untrue statement or omission is contained (or not contained in, in the case of an omission) in any information or affidavit so furnished in writing by on behalf of such Investor expressly for use therein; provided, however, that the liability of each such Investor shall be several and not joint and shall be in proportion to and limited to the net proceeds received by such Investor from the sale of Registrable Shares giving rise to such indemnification obligation.

 

(iii)            Any person or entity entitled to indemnification herein shall (A) give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification (provided that the failure to give prompt notice shall not impair any person’s or entity’s right to indemnification hereunder to the extent such failure has not prejudiced the indemnifying party) and (B) unless in such indemnified party’s reasonable judgment a conflict of interest between such indemnified and indemnifying parties may exist with respect to such claim, permit such indemnifying party to assume the defense of such claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party. If such defense is assumed, the indemnifying party shall not be subject to any liability for any settlement made by the indemnified party without its consent (but such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld). An indemnifying party who is not entitled to, or elects not to, assume the defense of a claim shall not be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for all parties indemnified by such indemnifying party with respect to such claim, unless in the reasonable judgment of any indemnified party a conflict of interest may exist between such indemnified party and any other of such indemnified parties with respect to such claim. No indemnifying party shall, without the consent of the indemnified party, consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which cannot be settled in all respects by the payment of money (and such money is so paid by the indemnifying party pursuant to the terms of such settlement) or which settlement includes a statement or admission of fault and culpability on the part of such indemnified party or which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation.

 

9

 

 

(iv)          The indemnification provided for under this Subscription Agreement shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the indemnified party or any officer, director or controlling person or entity of such indemnified party and shall survive the transfer of securities.

 

(v)            If the indemnification provided under this Section 7(d) from the indemnifying party is unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party in respect of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to herein, then the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying the indemnified party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the indemnified party as a result of such losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations; provided, however, the liability of the Investor shall be limited to the net proceeds received by such Investor from the sale of Registrable Shares giving rise to such indemnification obligation. The relative fault of the indemnifying party and indemnified party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact, was made by (or not made by, in the case of an omission), or relates to information supplied by (or not supplied by, in the case of an omission), such indemnifying party or indemnified party, and the indemnifying party’s and indemnified party’s relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such action. The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses or other liabilities referred to above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in Sections 7(d)(i), (ii) and (iii) above, any legal or other fees, charges or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with any investigation or proceeding. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution pursuant to this Section 7(d)(v) from any person or entity who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

 

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 earliest to occur of (i) such date and time as the Transaction Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms, (ii) upon the mutual written agreement of each of the parties hereto (and the Company) to terminate this Subscription Agreement, (iii) if the conditions to Closing set forth in Section 3 of this Subscription Agreement are not satisfied, or are not capable of being satisfied, on or prior to the Closing and, as a result thereof, the transactions contemplated by this Subscription Agreement will not be or are not consummated at the Closing and (iv) March 31, 2021; 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. IPOB shall notify the Investor of the termination of the Transaction Agreement promptly after the termination of such agreement. Upon the termination of this Subscription Agreement in accordance with this Section 8, any monies paid by the Investor to IPOB in connection herewith shall be promptly (and in any event within one business day after such termination) returned to the Investor.

 

9.            Trust Account Waiver. The Investor acknowledges that IPOB is a blank check company with the powers and privileges to effect a merger, asset acquisition, reorganization or similar business combination involving IPOB and one or more businesses or assets. The Investor further acknowledges that, as described in IPOB’s prospectus relating to its initial public offering dated April 27, 2020 (the “Prospectus”) available at www.sec.gov, substantially all of IPOB’s assets consist of the cash proceeds of IPOB’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 IPOB, its public shareholders and the underwriter of IPOB’s initial public offering. Except with respect to interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account that may be released to IPOB 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 IPOB 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 as a result of, or arising out of, this Subscription Agreement; provided, that nothing in this Section 9 shall be deemed to limit the Investor’s right, title, interest or claim to the Trust Account by virtue of the Investor’s record or beneficial ownership of Shares of IPOB acquired by any means other than pursuant to this Subscription Agreement.

 

10

 

 

10.         Miscellaneous.

 

(a)            Neither this Subscription Agreement nor any rights that may accrue to the Investor hereunder (other than the Shares acquired hereunder, if any) may be transferred or assigned, other than an assignment to any fund or account managed by the same investment manager as the Investor or an affiliate thereof, subject to, if such transfer or assignment is prior to the Closing, such transferee or assignee, as applicable, executing a joinder to this Subscription Agreement or a separate subscription agreement in substantially the same form as this Subscription Agreement, including with respect to the Subscription Amount and other terms and conditions, provided, that, in the case of any such transfer or assignment, the initial party to this Subscription Agreement shall remain bound by its obligations under this Subscription Agreement in the event that the transferee or assignee, as applicable, does not comply with its obligations to consummate the purchase of Shares contemplated hereby. Neither this Subscription Agreement nor any rights that may accrue to IPOB hereunder or any of IPOB’s obligations may be transferred or assigned other than pursuant to the Transactions.
