Item 2.01    Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On October 1, 2019, Chegg, Inc. ("Chegg") completed its previously announced acquisition of Thinkful, Inc. ("Thinkful"), an online learning platform that offers professional courses directly to students across America, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 30, 2019 (the "Merger Agreement"), by and among Chegg, Chegg Think, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Chegg ("Merger Sub"), Thinkful, and the Shareholder Representative Services LLC, a Colorado limited liability company, acting solely in its capacity as representative, agent and attorney-in-fact (the "Merger"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into Thinkful, with Thinkful continuing as the surviving entity after the Merger. Merger Sub will cease to exist and Thinkful will become a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Chegg.

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, all outstanding shares of capital stock of Thinkful were canceled and converted into the right to receive Merger consideration with an aggregate value of approximately $80 million (the “Consideration”), subject to adjustment for Thinkful’s net working capital, aggregate exercise price for Thinkful stock options, indebtedness and unpaid transaction expenses. Approximately $67.6 million was paid at the closing of the Merger, $1.0 million was held in escrow as security for certain accounting obligations of Thinkful, net working capital adjustment and an expense fund, and $8.0 million of the Consideration was held in escrow as security for the indemnification obligations of Thinkful pursuant to the Merger Agreement. Additionally, up to an additional $20.0 million in earnout payments may become payable in either cash or shares of Chegg’s Common Stock at Chegg’s sole discretion, by March 1, 2021.

Item 9.01    Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(a)    Financial statements of business acquired.

As a result of acquiring Thinkful, and based on the criteria in Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X, Chegg would ordinarily be required to file certain historical audited financial statements for Thinkful and corresponding pro forma financial information pursuant to Rule 11-01 of Regulation S-X. However, because Chegg believed that Thinkful’s financial statements would not be material to Chegg’s stockholders and would be of limited value to investors, Chegg requested relief from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) from the requirement to provide historical audited financial statements of Thinkful otherwise required by Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X and the corresponding pro forma financial statements set forth Rule 11-01 of Regulation S-X. The SEC granted the relief request on August 28, 2019.

(b)    Pro forma financial information.
    
Reference is made to the disclosure set forth in Item 9.01(a) above.
