On November 28, 2023, ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (“ElectraMeccanica”) announced that it has entered into a settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) by and among ElectraMeccanica, Tevva Motors Limited (“Tevva”), 1432952 B.C. Ltd. (“Holdco”), 1432957 B.C. Ltd. (“Parentco”) and Susan E. Docherty, ElectraMeccanica’s Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Operating Officer (collectively, the “Parties”), relating to the termination of that certain arrangement agreement (the “Arrangement Agreement”), dated August 14, 2023, by and among ElectraMeccanica, Tevva, Holdco and Parentco. Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Parties have agreed to, among other things, the following: (i) Tevva will dismiss, with prejudice, its previously filed federal and state court complaints relating to the Arrangement Agreement and the transactions contemplated therein; (ii) ElectraMeccanica will forgive the approximately $6.1 million due from Tevva under the term loan facility (the “Working Capital Facility”) previously provided by ElectraMeccanica, and will enter into a release of the debenture securing Tevva’s obligations under the Working Capital Facility; (iii) a general release and waiver between ElectraMeccanica, Parentco, Holdco and Ms. Docherty, on the one hand, and Tevva on the other hand, in favor of the other party; and (iv) ElectraMeccanica will pay Tevva $380,000 in connection with the Settlement Agreement.


As previously disclosed in ElectraMeccanica’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023, ElectraMeccanica had determined that the loan receivable advanced pursuant to the Working Capital Facility was fully impaired and recorded an impairment loss of $6 million in its condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss for the third quarter of 2023.

Safe Harbor Statement


Except for the statements of historical fact contained herein, the information presented in this news release and oral statements made from time to time by representatives of ElectraMeccanica or Tevva are or may constitute “forward-looking statements” as such term is used in applicable United States and Canadian laws and including, without limitation, within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, for which the parties claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements. These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management. Any other statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as “expects” or “does not expect,” “is expected,” “anticipates” or “does not anticipate,” “plans,” “estimates” or “intends,” or stating that certain actions, events or results “may,” “could,” “would,” “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved) are not statements of historical fact and should be viewed as forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning the parties’ intentions and expectations relating to the settlement agreement, the parties’ belief that they are best served by moving forward as independent companies with their respective business models, and ElectraMeccanica’s belief that it remains well-capitalized and intends to continue exploring other strategic third-party opportunities and potential options for its business. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of ElectraMeccanica or Tevva to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and other factors include, among others, ElectraMeccanica’s ability to identify, negotiate, and conclude strategic transactions that increase shareholder value, and other risks of the automotive industry including, without limitation, those associated with the environment, delays in obtaining governmental approvals, permits or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities or claims limitations on insurance coverage. Although ElectraMeccanica and Tevva have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Although ElectraMeccanica and Tevva believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, they can give no assurance that their expectations will be achieved. Forward-looking information is subject to certain risks, trends and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Many of these factors are beyond ElectraMeccanica’s and Tevva’s ability to control or predict. Other important factors that may cause actual results to differ materially and that could impact ElectraMeccanica and the statements contained in this news release can be found in ElectraMeccanica’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC during 2023, as well as in its subsequent filings with the SEC. ElectraMeccanica and Tevva assume no obligation to update or supplement any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
