Merger Agreement

 

On May 16, 2022, EdtechX Holdings Acquisition Corp. II, a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (“Merger Agreement”) by and among Parent, EXHAC Merger Sub I, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub I”), EXHAC Merger Sub II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub II”), and zSpace Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the parties will enter into a business combination transaction by which (i) Merger Sub I will merge with and into the Company, with the Company being the surviving entity of the merger, and, after giving effect to such merger, continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “First Merger”) and (ii) following the First Merger, the Company will merge with and into Merger Sub II (the “Second Merger” and, together with the First Merger, the “Merger”), with Merger Sub II being the surviving company of the Second Merger (Merger Sub II, in its capacity as the surviving company of the Second Merger, the “Surviving Company”). Concurrently with the consummation of the First Merger, (i) the outstanding shares of common stock (“Company Stock”) and preferred stock of the Company (“Preferred Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger (“Effective Time”) will be converted into shares of Class A common stock of Parent (“Parent Common Stock”), in each case, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement and (ii) each in-the-money option of the Company that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by Parent and will represent the right to acquire an adjusted number of shares of Parent Common Stock at an adjusted exercise price.

 

Further, following consummation of the Merger, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Parent’s board of directors will consist of seven members. Parent, through the Sponsors (as defined below), shall have the right to designate two directors, bSpace Investments Limited (“bSpace”) shall have the right to designate two directors and a non-director observer in bSpace’s discretion, and the Company shall have the right to designate the remaining directors.

 

The Merger is expected to be consummated following the receipt of required approval by the stockholders of Parent, required regulatory approvals, and the fulfilment of other customary closing conditions.

 

The following summary of the Merger Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement is attached as an exhibit hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

Upon consummation of the Merger, all outstanding shares of common stock and preferred stock of the Company will be exchanged for an aggregate of 13.1 million shares of Parent Common Stock.

 

As part of the aggregate consideration payable to the Company’s securityholders pursuant to the Merger Agreement, certain holders of Company Stock will also have the right to receive their pro rata portion of (a) warrants exercisable for up to an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of Parent Common Stock with an exercise price of $11.50 per share and (b) up to an aggregate of 3,694,581 shares of Parent Common Stock (“Earnout Shares”) if, during the period beginning on the closing date of the Merger (the “Closing Date”) until the fifth anniversary of the Closing Date (the “Earnout Period”), the following conditions (“Earnout Conditions”) are met:

 

One-third (1/3) of the Earnout Shares if (1) over any twenty (20) trading days within any thirty (30) consecutive trading day period the dollar volume-weighted average price (“VWAP”) of the shares of Parent Common Stock is greater than or equal to $11.50 per share (subject to adjustment) and (2) the Surviving Company, Parent or any direct or indirect subsidiary thereof consummates an Acquisition Transaction (defined below) after the Effective Time;

 

One-third (1/3) of the Earnout Shares if either (1) over any twenty (20) trading days within any thirty (30) consecutive trading day period the VWAP of the shares of Parent Common Stock is greater than or equal to $12.50 per share (subject to adjustment) or (2) the Surviving Company, Parent or any direct or indirect subsidiary thereof consummates a second Acquisition Transaction in addition to the Acquisition Transaction described above after the Effective Time; and

You may obtain free copies of these documents as described in the preceding paragraphs.

 

No Offer or Solicitation

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits hereto shall not constitute a solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any securities or in respect of the proposed transaction. This Current Report on Form 8-K also shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of any securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such other jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements included in this Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits hereto are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “would,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of other financial and performance metrics and projections of market opportunity.

These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this Current Report on Form 8-K, and on the current expectations of Parent’s and the Company’s management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of Parent and the Company. Some important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements could include changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political and legal conditions. Further, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including: the conditions to the completion of the Merger, including the required approval by Parent’s stockholders, may not be satisfied on the terms expected or on the anticipated schedule; the parties’ ability to meet expectations regarding the timing and completion of the Merger; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement; the approval by Parent’s stockholders of an amendment to Parent’s organizational documents to extend the date by which Parent must complete its initial business combination in order to have adequate time to close the proposed transaction; the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Parent related to the Merger or the Merger Agreement; the amount of the costs, fees, expenses and other charges related to the Merger; the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the proposed business combination; the ability to maintain the listing of Parent’s securities on a national securities exchange; the price of Parent’s securities may be volatile due to a variety of factors, including changes in the highly competitive industries in which Parent plans to operate or the Company operates, variations in operating performance across competitors, changes in laws and regulations affecting Parent’s or the Company’s business and changes in the combined capital structure; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed business combination; the ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations after the completion of the proposed transaction, and identify and realize additional opportunities; risks relating to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to the Company; the Company’s ability to successfully expand its service offerings; risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of the Company and potential difficulties in Company employee retention as a result of the proposed transaction; competition; the uncertain effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; and those factors discussed in the Registration Statement, proxy statement/prospectus, and other documents filed, or to be filed, by Parent with SEC. If any of these risks materialize or Parent’s or the Company’s assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither Parent nor the Company presently know or that Parent and the Company currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements.

 

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 reflect Parent’s and the Company’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views only as of the date they are made. Parent and the Company anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause Parent’s and the Company’s assessments to change. Parent and the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Parent and the Company 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. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Parent’s and the Company’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Neither Parent nor the Company gives any assurance that either Parent or the Company or the combined company will achieve its expectations. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements. 

 

Any financial projections in this Current Report on Form 8-K or the exhibits hereto are forward-looking statements that are based on assumptions that are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond Parent’s and the Company’s control. While all projections are necessarily speculative, Parent and the Company believe that the preparation of prospective financial information involves increasingly higher levels of uncertainty the further out the projection extends from the date of preparation. The assumptions and estimates underlying the projected results are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the projections. The inclusion of projections in this Current Report on Form 8-K should not be regarded as an indication that Parent and the Company, or their respective representatives and advisors, considered or consider the projections to be a reliable prediction of future events.

This Current Report on Form 8-K, including the exhibits hereto, is not intended to be all-inclusive or to contain all the information that a person may desire in considering an investment in Parent or the Company and is not intended to form the basis of an investment decision in Parent or the Company.

Some of the Company’s financial information and data contained herein and in the exhibits hereto does not conform to SEC Regulation S-X in that it includes certain financial information not derived in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Accordingly, such information and data will be adjusted and presented differently in the Registration Statement filed with the SEC. Parent and the Company believe that the presentation of non-GAAP measures provides information that is useful to investors as it indicates more clearly the ability of the Company to meet capital expenditures and working capital requirements and otherwise meet its obligations as they become due and facilitates comparison of the results of its business operations between its current, past, and projected future periods.
