On October 9, 2019, GigCapital, Inc., a Delaware corporation (GigCapital or the Company), entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the LOI) with an affiliate of Nomura Securities International, Inc. (Nomura). Upon negotiation and execution of definitive purchase agreement between the parties
with respect to the proposed transaction, Nomura will use best efforts to purchase 2,000,000 shares of common stock of GigCapital (the Shares) at an aggregate price of approximately $21 million prior to the closing of
GigCapitals business combination (the Business Combination) with Kaleyra, S.p.A. (Kaleyra, which term also refers to the post-combination company). Nomura will agree to waive any redemption right that would require the
redemption of the Shares in exchange for a pro rata amount of the funds held in GigCapitals trust account (the Trust).
following the closing of the Business Combination, Kaleyra will transfer from the Trust to Nomura for the number of Shares owned by Nomura at the closing of the Business Combination approximately $21 million in cash (such cash amount will be
equal to (a) the aggregate number of such Shares multiplied by (b) the per share redemption price for shares of GigCapital common stock out of the Trust (the Initial Forward Price)) (such actual aggregate cash amount, the
Prepaid Forward Amount).
After the closing of the Business Combination, Nomura may sell the Shares at its sole discretion in one or more
transactions, publicly or privately, at any time prior to the Maturity Date or Extended Maturity Date (each as defined below) at prices per share not less than approximately $10.50 per Share. For the avoidance of doubt, Nomura may also buy and sell
shares of GigCapital common stock that will not be subject to the terms of the LOI for its own account or on behalf of third parties without restriction as part of Nomuras regular business activities as a broker-dealer.
On each quarterly anniversary of the closing of the Business Combination, the proposed transaction will be partially terminated to the extent that Nomura has
sold Shares, and Nomura will transfer to Kaleyra cash equal to the pro rata portion of the Prepaid Forward Amount with respect to the Shares sold in the past quarter by Nomura. At the Maturity Date or Extended Maturity Date, in exchange for delivery
of the remaining Shares to Kaleyra from Nomura, Kaleyra will transfer to Nomura the difference between the Prepaid Forward Amount and the amount equal to the number of remaining Shares held by Nomura multiplied by the Forward Purchase Price, or
Nomura will transfer to Kaleyra the pro rata portion of the Prepaid Forward Amount with respect to the Shares that may have been sold by Nomura in the prior quarter. Nomura shall notify Kaleyra not less than ten (10) days prior to the Maturity
Date or Extended Maturity Date of the number of remaining Shares held by Nomura.
The maturity date (the Maturity Date) for the proposed
transaction is twelve (12) months from the closing of the Business Combination. On the Maturity Date, Kaleyra and Nomura will have the option to mutually extend the maturity to twenty four (24) months from the closing of the Business
Combination (the Extended Maturity Date). On the Maturity Date, the Forward Purchase Price will be equal to the Initial Forward Price per Share accruing at a fixed rate of 275 bps per annum from the date of the closing of the Business
Combination. On the Extended Maturity Date, the Forward Purchase Price will be equal to Initial Forward Price accruing at a fixed rate of 350 bps per annum from the date of the closing of the Business Combination.
The parties intend to negotiate and execute a definitive purchase agreement to reflect the above terms; however, until the purchase agreement is signed by all
the parties, no party will have any liability to any other party with respect to the proposed transaction.
