Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On October 7, 2020, Stable Road Acquisition Corp. (“Stable Road” or “Parent”) announced a proposed business combination (the “Proposed Transaction”) with Momentus Inc. (“Momentus” or the “Company”) pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 7, 2020, as amended on March 5, 2021, April 6, 2021 and June 29, 2021 (as it may be further amended and/or restated from time to time, the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Stable Road, Momentus, Project Marvel First Merger Sub, Inc. and Project Marvel Second Merger Sub, LLC.

 

On November 2, 2020, Stable Road filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-4 that included a proxy statement of Stable Road, a consent solicitation statement of Momentus and prospectus of Stable Road. Stable Road filed with the SEC an amended Registration Statement on Form S-4 on each of December 14, 2020, March 8, 2021, June 29, 2021, July 12, 2021, July 19, 2021 and July 21, 2021 (as amended, the “Registration Statement”). The Registration Statement was declared effective by the SEC on July 22, 2021. On July 23, 2021, Stable Road filed with the SEC a definitive proxy statement and final prospectus of Stable Road (the “Proxy Statement”).

 

On December 3, 2020, a complaint was filed by a purported stockholder of the Company against the Company and its board of directors in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, in a case captioned Wallace v. Stable Road Acquisition Corp., et al., No. 1:20-cv-10193.  The complaint alleges that the Company’s Registration Statement, as filed on November 2, 2020, omitted certain material information regarding the Company’s planned transaction with Momentus, in violation of the securities laws.  As relief, the complaint seeks an injunction barring the Company from proceeding with a stockholder vote or consummating the transaction absent additional disclosures, as well as unspecified costs and damages.  A second complaint was filed by another purported stockholder of the Company against the Company and its board of directors in the Supreme Court of the State of New York for the County of New York, in a case captioned Ciccotelli v. Stable Road Acquisition Corp., et al., No. 656895/2020, on December 9, 2020, raising similar allegations and seeking similar relief.  In addition to the two complaints, the Company received three letters, dated November 9, 2020, November 19, 2020, and August 3, 2021, respectively, from purported stockholders raising similar allegations.[1]

 

While both Stable Road and Momentus believe that the disclosures set forth in Proxy Statement comply fully with applicable law, to avoid nuisance, cost and distraction, and to preclude any efforts to delay the closing of the Proposed Transaction, Stable Road is voluntarily supplementing the Proxy Statement with the supplemental disclosures set forth below (the “Supplemental Disclosures”). Nothing in the Supplemental Disclosures shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable law of any of the disclosures set forth herein. To the contrary, Stable Road and Momentus specifically deny all allegations in the demand letters that any additional disclosure was or is required. Stable Road and Momentus believe these purported shareholders’ claims are without merit.

 

Supplemental Disclosures to the Proxy Statement

 

The following supplemental information should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement, which should be read in its entirety. All page references are to pages in the Proxy Statement, and terms used below, unless otherwise defined, have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement. Underlined text shows text being added to a referenced disclosure in the Proxy Statement.

 

The Proxy Statement is hereby amended as follows:

 

 

[1] Separately, a purported stockholder of SRAC filed a putative class action complaint against the Company, Sponsor, Brian Kabot, James Norris, Momentus, and Mikhail Kokorich on July 15, 2021, in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, in a case captioned Jensen v. Stable Road Acquisition Corp., et al., No. 2:21-cv-05744. The complaint alleges that the defendants omitted certain material information in their public statements and disclosures regarding the Proposed Transaction in violation of the securities laws, and seeks damages on behalf of a putative class of stockholders who purchased SRAC stock between October 7, 2020 and July 13, 2021. On July 22, 2021 and August 4, 2021, respectively, two other purported stockholders filed putative class action complaints in the same court, in cases captioned Hall v. Stable Road Acquisition Corp., et al., No. 2:21-cv-05943, and Depoy v. Stable Road Acquisition Corp., et al., No. 2:21-cv-06287, asserting substantially similar claims and seeking substantially similar relief. Other, similar suits may follow. On July 20, 2021, another purported stockholder of SRAC sent a letter demanding that the Company provide holders of the Company’s Class A Common Stock with a separate class vote on the Class A Share Increase Amendment. The Company has responded to this stockholder in writing to explain its view that the demand is without merit.

The following disclosure supplements and restates the fourth paragraph under the section of the Proxy Statement captioned “Background of the Business Combination” beginning on page 129 of the Proxy Statement:

 

In the process that led to identifying Momentus as an attractive investment opportunity, SRAC’s management team evaluated over 50 potential business combination targets, entered into non-disclosure agreements with approximately 26 potential business combination targets (other than Momentus), submitted non-binding indications of interest with respect to three potential business combination targets and submitted a non-binding letter of intent with respect to one potential business combination target (other than Momentus). SRAC engaged in more extensive negotiations with two potential acquisition targets (other than Momentus), Target A and Target B. None of the approximately 26 non-disclosure agreements contained standstill or “don’t ask, don’t waive” provisions. 

 

The following disclosure supplements and restates the seventeenth paragraph under the section of the Proxy Statement captioned “Background of the Business Combination” beginning on page 129 of the Proxy Statement:

 

Also on September 2, 2020, SRAC executed a Placement Agent Agreement with negotiated fees with Evercore, who was also then serving as Momentus’ financial advisor, and on September 3, 2020, SRAC executed a Placement Agent Agreement with Cantor, pursuant to which Evercore and Cantor would serve as co-placement agents for the proposed PIPE investment. Both Momentus and SRAC provided consent to Evercore’s roles as Momentus’ financial advisor and co-placement agent for SRAC for the proposed PIPE investment. Pursuant to the Placement Agent Agreements, each of Evercore and Cantor is entitled to a fee in connection with serving as a co-placement agent equal to 2.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds received by SRAC from the PIPE investment, which fees are subject to the consummation of the PIPE investment and the Business Combination. The Placement Agent Agreements also include customary out-of-pocket expense reimbursement provisions. Evercore is also serving as Momentus’ financial advisor in connection with the Business Combination, and pursuant to its engagement letter with Momentus, Evercore will also be entitled to an additional financial advisory fee in connection with the Business Combination equal to $14.6 million, subject to reduction to $12.3 million based on the amount of redemptions by SRAC’s public stockholders.

 

The following disclosure supplements and restates the sixth bullet point under the section of the Proxy Statement captioned “Interests of Certain SRAC Persons in the Business Combination” beginning on page 148 of the Proxy Statement:

 

the continuation of Brian Kabot, one of our existing directors, as a director of the Combined Company following the Closing. Mr. Kabot will be entitled to receive any cash fees or equity awards that the Combined Company’s board of directors determines to pay its non-executive directors. There have been no other discussions of or agreements regarding the employment of any SRAC officers, directors, or employees by the Combined Company following the closing of the Business Combination.
