Questions and Answers during the Annual Meeting
As part of the Annual Meeting, we will hold a live Q&A session, during which we intend to answer questions submitted online during the meeting that are pertinent to the Company and the meeting matters, as time permits. Only stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder by following the procedures outlined above will be permitted to submit questions during the Annual Meeting. Each stockholder is limited to no more than two questions. Questions should be succinct and only cover a single topic. We will not address questions that are, among other things:
irrelevant to the business of the Company or to the business of the Annual Meeting;
related to material non-public information of the Company, including the status or results of our business since our last Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q;
related to any pending, threatened or ongoing litigation;
related to personal grievances;
derogatory references to individuals;
substantially repetitious of questions already made by another stockholder;
in excess of the two-question limit;
in furtherance of the stockholder's personal or business interests; or
out of order or not otherwise suitable for the conduct of the Annual Meeting as determined by the chair of the Annual Meeting or Secretary in their reasonable judgment.
Additional information regarding the Q&A session will be available in the “Rules of Conduct” posted at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/OPEN2022 for stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder (rather than a “Guest”) by following the procedures outlined above.
Recommendations of the Board
At the Annual Meeting, our stockholders will be asked to vote on the proposals set forth below. The Board recommends that you vote your shares as indicated below. If you return a properly completed proxy card, or vote your shares by telephone or over the Internet, your shares of common stock will be voted on your behalf as you direct. If not otherwise specified, the shares of common stock represented by the proxies will be voted in accordance with the Board's recommendations as follows:

“FOR” the election of Adam Bain, Pueo Keffer and John Rice as Class II directors;

“FOR” the ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm;

“FOR” the approval, on an advisory (non-binding) basis, of the compensation of our named executive officers;

In the discretion of the persons appointed as proxies on any other items that may properly come before the Annual Meeting.
Broker Non-Votes
If the shares you own are held in street name through a bank or brokerage firm, the bank or brokerage firm is required to vote your shares in accordance with your instructions. You should direct your broker how to vote the shares held in your account. Under applicable stock exchange rules, if you do not instruct your broker on how to vote your shares, your broker will be able to vote your shares with respect to certain “routine” matters but will not be allowed to vote your shares with respect to certain “non-routine” matters. The ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm is a routine matter, and therefore we do not expect any broker non-votes on this matter. Each other proposal
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

to be voted on at the Annual Meeting is a non-routine matter. Generally, broker non-votes occur when shares held by a broker in “street name” for a beneficial owner are not voted with respect to a particular proposal because the broker has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner and lacks discretionary voting power to vote those shares.
Revoking Your Proxy or Changing Your Vote
Voting over the Internet or by telephone or execution of a proxy will not in any way affect a stockholder's right to attend the Annual Meeting and vote electronically. A proxy may be revoked before it is used to cast a vote at the Annual Meeting. If the shares you own are held in your name, you can revoke a proxy by doing one of the following:
filing with our Secretary, at or before the taking of the vote at the Annual Meeting, a written notice of revocation bearing a later date than the proxy;
duly executing a later-dated proxy relating to the same shares and delivering it to our Secretary before the taking of the vote; or
attending the Annual Meeting and voting electronically. However, your attendance at the Annual Meeting will not automatically revoke your proxy unless you vote again at the Annual Meeting.
Any written notice of revocation or subsequent proxy should be sent to us at the following address: Opendoor Technologies Inc., 410 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 1600, Tempe, Arizona 85281, Attention: Vanessa Gage, Secretary.
If the shares you own are held in street name, you will need to follow the directions provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm to change your vote.
Quorum and Votes Required
The presence electronically or representation by proxy of a majority in voting power of the shares of common stock of the Company entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting is necessary to establish a quorum. Abstentions and broker non-votes are included in the shares present or represented at the Annual Meeting for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present. If a quorum is not present, the chair of the Annual Meeting may adjourn the meeting until a quorum is obtained.
The table below sets forth the vote required for the approval of each proposal before the Annual Meeting, and the effect of votes withheld, abstentions and broker non-votes.
Proposal
Votes Required
Effect of Votes Withheld/Abstentions and
Broker Non-Votes
Proposal 1: Election of Directors
The plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative FOR votes will be elected as Class II Directors.
Votes withheld and broker non-votes will have no effect.
Proposal 2: Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast.

No director or executive officer is related by blood, marriage or adoption to any other director or executive officer. No arrangements or understandings exist between any director and any other person pursuant to which such person was selected as a director or nominee.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Board Leadership Structure
The Board has determined that the best leadership structure for Opendoor is to combine the Chairperson of the Board and Chief Executive Officer positions, with Mr. Wu serving as Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer. Combining the roles of Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer provides unified leadership by Mr. Wu and allows for a single, clear focus for management to execute the Company's strategy and business plans. Our Board is composed of individuals with extensive experience in the technology industry, real estate industry and public company management. In addition, each of our standing Board committees is composed of, and chaired by, independent directors.
For these reasons and because of the strong leadership of Mr. Wu, our Board has concluded that our current leadership structure is appropriate.
There is no fixed requirement in our Corporate Governance Guidelines that our Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer positions be separate, or that our Chairperson be an employee or elected from among non-employee directors. We believe that it is in the best interests of the Company to maintain the flexibility to evaluate our leadership structure over time as part of Opendoor's ongoing succession planning process. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that an independent “Lead Director” may be elected from among the independent directors when the Chairperson is not an independent director. We do not have a Lead Director.
Board Meetings and Attendance
Board members are expected to prepare for, attend and participate in all meetings of the Board and committees on which they serve. During 2021, the Board held eight meetings and all directors attended 75% or more of the aggregate number of Board meetings and meetings of the committees on which they then served. We do not maintain a formal policy regarding director attendance at our annual meetings; however, it is expected that directors will attend. Seven Board members attended the 2021 annual meeting.
Executive Sessions of Independent Directors
The Board holds executive sessions of its independent directors no less than two times per year.
Director Orientation and Continuing Education
The Board views orientation and continuing education as vital tools for building an effective Board. We provide all new directors with orientation sessions regarding the Board and the Company's operations. The orientation consists of presentations by members of senior management on the Company's strategic plans, financial statements and key issues, policies and practices. We also periodically provide materials, updates and presentations, including in regular Board and committee meetings, to all directors on issues and subjects that assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities, such as key industry developments and the competitive landscape. In addition, the Company will pay for certain expenses for any director who wishes to attend seminars, conferences and other continuing education programs designed for directors of public companies.
Process for Board Succession Planning and Selection and Nomination of Directors
As provided in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, the Board, together with the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, is responsible for determining the appropriate characteristics, skills, and experience for the Board as a whole and for its individual members. The Board believes that candidates for director should have certain minimum qualifications, including the highest personal integrity and ethics and the ability to read and understand basic financial statements. In considering candidates for Board membership, the Board considers additional criteria including relevant expertise, sufficient time to devote to our affairs; excellence in their field, the ability to exercise sound judgment; a commitment to represent the long-term interests of our stockholders; diversity (including diversity of gender, ethnic background and country of origin), age, skills, and other factors that it deems appropriate to maintain a balance of knowledge, experience, and capability on the Board in the context of the needs of the Board and the Company.
Each year, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee assesses the directors to be nominated for election by stockholders at the annual meeting. To ensure that the Board evolves in a manner that serves the business and strategic needs of the Company, before recommending for re-nomination a slate of incumbent directors for an additional term, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will evaluate whether incumbent directors possess the requisite skills

and perspective, both individually and collectively. In addition, the Board will review those directors' overall service to Opendoor during their term, including the number of meetings attended, level of participation, quality of performance, and any other relationships and transactions that might impair the directors' independence.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is primarily responsible for searching for qualified director candidates for election to the Board and filling vacancies on the Board. To facilitate the search process, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may solicit current directors and executives of the Company for the names of potentially qualified candidates or ask directors and executives to pursue their own business contacts for the names of potentially qualified candidates. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also consult with outside advisors or retain search firms to assist in the search for qualified candidates, or consider director candidates recommended by our stockholders. Once potential candidates are identified, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee reviews the backgrounds of those candidates, evaluates candidates' independence from the Company and potential conflicts of interest and determines if candidates meet the qualifications desired by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for candidates for election as a director.
Consideration of Board Diversity
The Company believes that a Board made up of highly qualified individuals from diverse backgrounds promotes better corporate governance and performance and effective decision-making. The Board and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee are committed to ensuring the Board functions effectively and with appropriate diversity and expertise. 38% of our directors self-identify as having diverse characteristics.
Although the Board has no formal policy on diversity, it has included diversity as a factor that will be taken into consideration by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Board when identifying director candidates and recommending or selecting nominees for election by stockholders.
Stockholder Recommendations of Director Candidates
Stockholders may recommend individuals to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for consideration as potential director candidates by submitting the names of the recommended individuals, together with appropriate biographical information and background materials, to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, Opendoor Technologies Inc., 410 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 1600, Tempe, Arizona 85281, Attention: Vanessa Gage, Secretary. In the event there is a vacancy, and assuming that appropriate biographical and background material has been provided on a timely basis, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will evaluate stockholder-recommended candidates by following substantially the same process, and applying substantially the same criteria, as it follows for candidates submitted by others.
Corporate Governance Documents
We believe that good corporate governance is important to ensure that Opendoor is managed for the long-term benefit of our stockholders. Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will periodically review and reassess our Corporate Governance Guidelines, other governance documents and overall governance structure. Complete copies of our Corporate Governance Guidelines and committee charters are available on the “Corporate Governance” section of our website at investor.opendoor.com.
Code of Conduct
The Board has adopted a written code of business conduct and ethics (the “Code of Conduct”), which applies to all of our employees, officers and directors. Our Code of Conduct is available in the “Corporate Governance” section of our website at investor.opendoor.com. In addition, we intend to post on our website all disclosures that are required by law or the Nasdaq listing rules concerning any amendments to, or waivers from, any provision of our Code of Conduct.
Board Committees
Our Board has established three standing committees — the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee — each of which operates under a charter that has been approved by our Board. Current copies of the Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee charters are posted on the “Corporate Governance” section of our website located at investor.opendoor.com.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Board's Role in Risk Oversight
The Board recognizes that the achievement of our strategic and commercial objectives involves taking risks and that those risks may evolve over time. The Board has oversight responsibility for Opendoor's risk management function, which is designed to identify, assess and monitor fundamental financial and business risks across the Company's operations and consider ways to address and mitigate those risks. Consistent with this approach, one of the Board's primary responsibilities includes reviewing assessments of, and advising management with respect to, significant risks and issues facing the Company.
In addition, the Board has tasked designated committees of the Board to assist with the oversight of certain categories of risk management, and the committees report to the Board regularly on these matters.
The Audit Committee reviews and discusses guidelines and policies governing the process by which senior management assesses and manages the Company's exposure to risk, as well as the Company's major financial risk exposures and the steps management has taken to monitor and control such exposures;
The Compensation Committee, in approving and evaluating the Company's executive compensation plans, policies and programs, takes into account the degree of risk to the Company that such plans, policies and programs may create and reviews and discusses, at least annually, the relationship between risk management policies and practices, corporate strategy and the Company's compensation arrangements; and
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee assists the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to the management of risks associated with Board organization, membership and structure, as well as our overall governance structure.
Our Board does not believe that its role in the oversight of our risks affects the Board's leadership structure.
Communications from Stockholders
The Board will give appropriate attention to written communications that are submitted by stockholders, and will respond if and as appropriate. Communications are forwarded to all directors if they relate to important substantive matters and include suggestions or comments that our Secretary and Chairperson of the Board consider to be important for the directors to know. In general, communications relating to corporate governance and long-term corporate strategy are more likely to be forwarded than communications relating to ordinary business affairs, personal grievances and matters as to which we tend to receive repetitive or duplicative communications. Stockholders who wish to send communications on any topic to the Board should address such communications to the Board of Directors, c/o Vanessa Gage, Secretary, Opendoor Technologies Inc., 410 N.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
Compensation Discussion and Analysis
This Compensation Discussion and Analysis provides information regarding the 2021 compensation program for the principal executive officer, the principal financial officer, the two most highly-compensated executive officers (other than our principal executive officer and principal financial officer) who were serving as our executive officers at the end of 2021 and the two individuals for whom disclosure would have been provided but for the fact that the individuals were not serving as our executive officers at the end of 2021, who we refer to collectively as our “named executive officers.” Our named executive officers for 2021 were:
Eric Wu, our Chief Executive Officer (our “CEO”);
Carrie Wheeler, our Chief Financial Officer (our “CFO”);
Andrew Low Ah Kee, our President;
Daniel Morillo, our Chief Investment Officer;
Ian Wong, our Chief Technology Officer; and
Elizabeth Stevens, our former Head of Legal.
Due to a modification to the Company's management structure, Mr. Wong ceased serving as an executive officer of the Company on May 6, 2021. In addition, on July 27, 2021, Ms. Stevens notified us of her resignation as our Head of Legal, effective September 1, 2021.
Executive Summary
This Compensation Discussion and Analysis describes the material elements of our executive compensation program during 2021. It also provides an overview of our executive compensation philosophy, including our principal compensation policies and practices. Finally, it analyzes how and why the Compensation Committee of our Board arrived at the specific compensation decisions for our named executive officers in 2021 and discusses the key factors that the Compensation Committee considered in determining their compensation.
2021 Compensation Highlights
Based on our overall operating environment and our financial and operational results, the following key actions were taken with respect to the compensation of our named executive officers for 2021:
No Base Salary Increases – The Compensation Committee maintained the annual base salaries of our named executive officers at their 2020 levels (as either established or confirmed in their employment offer letters), except in the case of Ms. Stevens, whose annual base salary was increased to $350,000 to reflect the competitive base salaries of executives holding comparable positions at the companies in our compensation peer group.
No Annual Cash Bonus Program – We did have not have an annual cash bonus program in 2021 for our named executive officers and historically have not maintained a formal annual cash bonus program for our named executive officers. For 2021, we awarded sign-on and retention bonuses to Messrs. Low Ah Kee and Morillo in the amounts described below under “Compensation Elements—Sign-On and Retention Bonuses.”
Long-Term Incentive Compensation – In line with our philosophy that our compensation program should be heavily weighted toward equity compensation, in 2021 we granted time-based restricted stock units (“TRSUs”) to Mr. Wu and Ms. Stevens and TRSUs and performance-based restricted stock units (“PRSUs”) to Mr. Low Ah Kee. These equity awards are described in detail below under “Compensation Elements—Long-Term Equity Compensation.”
Pay-for-Performance
We believe our executive compensation program is reasonable and competitive, and appropriately balances the goals of attracting, motivating, rewarding and retaining our executive officers, including our named executive officers, with the goal of aligning their interests with those of our stockholders. The annual compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, has varied due to the Business Combination in December 2020. We also expect the annual compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, to vary from year to year based on our
20
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

financial and operational results and individual performance. Our executive compensation program emphasizes “variable” pay over “fixed” pay. We do not determine either “variable” or “fixed” pay with reference to a specific percentage of target total direct compensation.
Going forward, we intend to maintain this emphasis on “variable” over “fixed” pay as we believe this approach provides appropriate incentives for our executive officers to drive our financial performance and create long-term growth.
Executive Compensation Policies and Practices
We endeavor to maintain sound governance standards consistent with our executive compensation policies and practices. The Compensation Committee evaluates our executive compensation program on a regular basis to ensure that it is consistent with our short-term and long-term goals given the dynamic nature of our business and the market in which we compete for executive talent. The following summarizes our executive compensation and related policies and practices:
What We Do:
What We Don’t Do:
 Independent Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee consists solely of independent directors who establish our compensation policies and practices.

 Independent Compensation Adviser. The Compensation Committee has engaged its own compensation consultant to provide information, analysis and other advice on executive compensation independent of management. This compensation consultant performed no other consulting or other services for us in 2021.

 Annual Executive Compensation Review. The Compensation Committee conducts an annual review and approval of our compensation strategy, including a review and determination of our compensation peer group used for comparative purposes and a review of our compensation-related risk profile.

 Pay-for-Performance Philosophy. The majority of our named executive officers’ target total direct compensation opportunities are structured with a significant long-term equity component, making a substantial portion of each named executive officer’s target total direct compensation dependent upon our overall, long-term success (as measured through our stock price and/or total stockholder return), thereby aligning the interests of our named executive officers and our stockholders.

 “Double-Trigger” Change-in-Control Arrangements. Our post-employment compensation arrangements in the event of a change in control of the Company are “double-trigger” arrangements that require both a change in control of the Company plus a qualifying termination of employment before payments and benefits are paid.

 Succession Planning. We intend to review the risks associated with our key executive officer positions to ensure adequate succession plans are in development.
 No Executive Retirement Plans. We do not offer pension plans or other defined benefit retirement plans or arrangements to our named executive officers. Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in our Section 401(k) retirement savings plan on the same basis as our other eligible full-time employees.

 Limited Perquisites. We provide limited perquisites and other personal benefits to our named executive officers and such benefits generally are only provided when they serve a legitimate business purpose.

 Limited Tax Reimbursements. We provide limited tax reimbursement payments (including “gross-ups”) on perquisites or other personal benefits, which in 2021 were limited to gross-ups for a COVID-19 relief payment available to all employees and HSR filing fees for Messrs. Wu and Wong.

 No Special Welfare or Health Benefits. Our executive officers participate in our broad-based company-sponsored health and welfare benefit plans and programs on the same basis as our other full-time employees.

 No Hedging of Our Equity Securities. We prohibit our executive officers, all other employees and the non-employee members of our Board from engaging in certain derivative transactions and from hedging our securities.

 Limited Pledging of Our Equity Securities. We prohibit our executive officers, all other employees and the non-employee members of our Board from holding our securities in a margin account without the prior approval of the Board or duly authorized committees thereof. We also prohibit pledging our securities as collateral for a loan without the prior consent of our Head of Legal.

 No “single trigger” Change-in-Control Arrangements. We do not provide cash severance or automatic vesting of equity awards based solely upon a change in control of the Company.

 No Stock Option Re-pricing. Our equity incentive and compensation plans do not permit options to be repriced to a lower exercise or strike price without the approval of our stockholders.

Stockholder Advisory Votes on Named Executive Officer Compensation
At our 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, we conducted our initial non-binding stockholder advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers (commonly known as a “Say-on-Pay” vote). Approximately 99.8% of the votes represented and entitled to vote on the matter (excluding broker non-votes and abstentions) were cast for the approval of our named executive officer compensation for 2020. The Compensation Committee considers the result of the Say-on-Pay vote in determining the compensation of our named executive officers. Based on the strong level of support for our executive compensation philosophy, program, and practices demonstrated by the result of this Say-on-Pay vote, among other factors, our Board and the Compensation Committee determined to continue the implementation of our compensation philosophy, further emphasizing our commitment to link pay to performance and aligning the interests of our named executive officers with those of our stockholders. The Compensation Committee determined not to implement significant changes to our executive compensation program for 2021.
We value the opinions of our stockholders. Our goal is to be responsive to our stockholders and ensure that we understand and address their opinions and concerns. Our Board and the Compensation Committee will consider the outcome of this year’s Say-on-Pay vote (see Proposal Three in this proxy statement) as well as future advisory votes on the compensation of our named executive officers, and feedback received throughout the year, when making compensation decisions for our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
At our 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, we also conducted a non-binding stockholder advisory vote on the frequency of future Say-on-Pay votes (commonly known as a “Say-When-on-Pay” vote). Our stockholders expressed a preference for holding future Say-on-Pay votes on an annual, rather than a biennial or triennial, basis. In recognition of this preference and other factors considered, our Board determined that, until the next Say-When-on-Pay vote, we will hold annual Say-on-Pay votes. Accordingly, following the meeting to which this proxy statement relates, our next Say-on-Pay vote will be held at our 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
Compensation Philosophy and Objectives
We are a company with a “pay for performance” compensation philosophy. Accordingly, our compensation programs are designed to attract, retain and motivate our employees, including our executive officers, by ensuring that such programs are aligned to the market, scalable and flexible for our leaders to operate within and simple and clear for our employees to understand. We typically implement this philosophy by emphasizing equity, rather than cash, compensation.
With respect to our executive compensation program, our key objectives are to:
allow us to attract and retain highly qualified executive officers; and
provide our executive officers with the opportunity to be owners in the Company.
We believe that our ability to keep our senior executive team engaged and productive is tied to our executive compensation program. In addition, for us to be appropriately positioned to attract new talent, we must be prepared to be, and be perceived as, an employer that offers competitive compensation. Providing our executive officers and other employees with an opportunity to be owners in our business fosters their active engagement in our success and aligns their interests with those of our stockholders.
To achieve our compensation objectives, we historically have provided our executive officers, including our named executive officers, with a compensation package consisting of the following elements:
Element
Type of Element
Compensation Element
Objective
Base Salary
Fixed

Designed to compensate our executives for services rendered during the year and to recognize the experience, skills, knowledge and responsibilities required of each executive
Long-Term Incentive Compensation

Equity awards in the form of PRSU awards that may be earned and settled for shares of our common stock and TRSU awards that may vest and be settled for shares of our common stock
Designed to align the interests of our executives and our stockholders by motivating our executives to create sustainable long-term stockholder value

TABLE OF CONTENTS

In addition, from time to time, we may provide cash sign-on and retention bonus arrangements as part of an employment offer. The amount of compensation awarded in these circumstances is established based on the proposed executive officer’s role and responsibilities, long-term potential and our expectations as to the individual’s performance and/or Company performance.
Compensation-Setting Process
Role of the Board of Directors
Prior to the completion of the Business Combination in December 2020, our executive compensation program was administered by the board of directors of Opendoor Labs Inc. ("Opendoor Labs") based on recommendations from its compensation committee. The compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, was reviewed by the compensation committee of Opendoor Labs, including a discussion of the compensation and performance of each executive officer with our CEO as well as our CEO’s recommendations for their compensation. These recommendations were based upon a review of the performance of each executive officer, our overall performance and an assessment of each executive officer's contributions to that performance, internal pay equity considerations and the competitiveness of the market for each executive officer's services. The compensation committee then generally evaluated any recommended compensation adjustments or awards to our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and made recommendations to the board of directors of Opendoor Labs, which ultimately determined the compensation of each executive officer.
Role of the Compensation Committee
The Compensation Committee discharges the responsibilities of our Board relating to the compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and the non-employee members of our Board. Under its charter, the Compensation Committee has the overall responsibility for overseeing our compensation and benefits policies generally, and overseeing and evaluating the compensation plans, policies and practices applicable to our executive officers.
In carrying out its responsibilities, the Compensation Committee evaluates our compensation policies and practices with a focus on the degree to which these policies and practices reflect our executive compensation philosophy, develops strategies and makes decisions that it believes further our philosophy or align with developments in best compensation practices, and reviews the performance of our executive officers when making decisions with respect to their compensation or recommendations to our Board with respect to their compensation.
The Compensation Committee has retained a compensation consultant (as described below) to provide support in its review and assessment of our executive compensation program; however, the Compensation Committee exercises its own judgment in making final decisions or recommendations with respect to the compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
The Compensation Committee reviews our executive compensation program annually. As part of this review process, the Compensation Committee applies the objectives described above within the context of our overall compensation philosophy while simultaneously considering the compensation levels needed to ensure that our executive compensation program remains competitive based on input and market data provided by the Compensation Committee’s compensation consultant. The Compensation Committee also evaluates whether we are meeting our retention objectives and the potential cost of replacing key named executive officers.
Setting Target Total Direct Compensation
The Compensation Committee conducts an annual review of the compensation arrangements of our executive officers, including our named executive officers. As part of this review, the Compensation Committee evaluates the base salary levels, any sign-on and retention bonuses, and the long-term incentive compensation opportunities of our executive officers and all related performance criteria.
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Compensation Committee does not intend to establish a specific target for formulating the target total direct compensation opportunities of our executive officers. Instead, it evaluates both performance and compensation to ensure that the compensation provided to our executive officers is competitive relative to the compensation paid by similar companies in the technology and internet retail sectors, with particular emphasis on our peer companies as described below.
In making decisions about the compensation of our executive officers, the members of the Compensation Committee rely primarily on considerations of various factors, including the following:
our executive compensation program objectives;
our performance against the financial, operational and strategic objectives established by the Compensation Committee and our Board;
each executive officer’s knowledge, skills, experience, qualifications and tenure relative to other similarly situated executives at the companies in our compensation peer group and/or in selected broad-based compensation surveys;
the scope of each executive officer’s role and responsibilities compared to other similarly situated executives at the companies in our compensation peer group and/or in selected broad-based compensation surveys;
the prior performance of each executive officer, based on a subjective assessment of his or her contributions to our overall performance, and ability to lead his or her business unit and work as part of a team;
the potential of each executive officer to contribute to our long-term financial, operational and strategic objectives;
our CEO’s compensation relative to that of our other executive officers, particularly our other named executive officers, and compensation parity among our executive officers;
our financial performance relative to our peers;
the compensation practices of our compensation peer group and the companies in selected broad-based compensation surveys and the positioning of each executive officer’s compensation in a ranking of peer company compensation levels based on an analysis of competitive market data; and
the recommendations of our CEO with respect to the compensation of our executive officers (except with respect to his own compensation).
These factors provide the framework for compensation decision-making and final decisions by the Compensation Committee or its recommendations to our Board for final decisions regarding the compensation opportunity for each executive officer.
The Compensation Committee does not weigh these factors in any predetermined manner, nor does it apply any formulas in developing its compensation decisions or recommendations. The members of the Compensation Committee consider this information in light of their individual experience, knowledge of the Company, knowledge of the competitive market, knowledge of each executive officer and business judgment in making decisions and recommendations.
Role of Management
In discharging its responsibilities, the Compensation Committee works with members of our management, including our CEO. Our management assists the Compensation Committee by providing information on corporate and individual performance, market compensation data and management’s perspective on compensation matters. The Compensation Committee solicits and reviews our CEO’s proposals with respect to program structures, as well as his recommendations for adjustments to annual base salaries, long-term incentive compensation opportunities and other compensation-related matters for our executive officers, including our named executive officers (except with respect to his own compensation), based on his evaluation of their performance for the prior year.

Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Compensation Committee reviews and discusses proposals and recommendations with our CEO and considers them as one factor in determining and approving the compensation of our executive officers or making recommendations to our Board with respect to the compensation of our executive officers. Our CEO also attends meetings of our Board and the Compensation Committee at which executive compensation matters are addressed, except with respect to discussions involving his own compensation.
Role of the Compensation Consultant
The Compensation Committee has the authority to retain an external compensation consultant to assist it by providing information, analysis and other advice relating to our executive compensation program and the decisions resulting from its annual executive compensation review, including the authority to approve the consultant’s reasonable fees and other retention terms. The compensation consultant reports directly to the Compensation Committee and its chair, and serves at the discretion of the Compensation Committee, which reviews the engagement annually.
We first engaged Compensia, Inc. (“Compensia”), a national compensation consulting firm, in May 2018, although the Compensation Committee did not engage Compensia to provide executive and director compensation consulting services on a regular basis until 2019. In 2020 and 2021, the Compensation Committee again engaged Compensia to serve as its compensation consultant to advise on executive compensation matters, including competitive market pay practices for our executive officers, and with the data analysis and selection of the compensation peer group.
In addition to the work Compensia performed in connection with our executive and director compensation practices, Compensia periodically receives requests for information from us or the Compensation Committee pertaining to individual promotions, equity incentive compensation, potential personnel recruitment and other such situations in which market compensation insight may benefit us or the Compensation Committee.
During 2021, Compensia attended the meetings of the Compensation Committee (both with and without management present) as requested and provided various services, including the following:
the review, analysis and updating of our compensation peer group;
the review and analysis of the base salary levels and long-term incentive compensation opportunities of our executive officers against competitive market data based on the companies in our compensation peer group;
a competitive market assessment for executive-level management;
an analysis of peer company equity utilization;
consultation with the Compensation Committee chair and other members between Compensation Committee meetings; and
support on other ad hoc matters throughout the year.
The terms of Compensia’s engagement include reporting directly to the Compensation Committee chair. Compensia also coordinated with our management for data collection and informal market comparisons for our executive officers. In 2021, Compensia did not provide any other consulting or other services to us.
The Compensation Committee has evaluated its relationship with Compensia to ensure that it believes that such firm is independent from management. This review process included a review of the services that Compensia provided, the quality of those services and the fees associated with the services provided during 2021. Based on this review, as well as consideration of the factors affecting independence set forth in Exchange Act Rule 10C-1(b)(4) and Rule 5605(d)(3)(D) of the Nasdaq rules, and such other factors as were deemed relevant under the circumstances, the Compensation Committee has determined that no conflict of interest was raised as a result of the work performed by Compensia.
Competitive Positioning
The Compensation Committee believes that comparisons with companies with similar financial characteristics and business profiles are useful guides to evaluate the competitiveness of our executive compensation program and related policies and practices. Going forward, for purposes of assessing our executive compensation against the competitive market, the Compensation Committee intends to review and consider the compensation levels and practices of a select group of peer companies. This compensation peer group will consist of companies that are similar to us in terms of industry, market
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

capitalization and stage of development. The competitive data drawn from this compensation peer group will be one of several factors that the Compensation Committee considers in making its decisions with respect to the compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
The Compensation Committee intends to use data drawn from the companies in a compensation peer group, as well as data drawn from broad-based executive compensation surveys, with an emphasis on publicly-traded San Francisco Bay Area software/software product companies with revenues in a range of approximately 0.2x to 2.0x our revenues over the trailing four fiscal quarters to evaluate the competitive market when determining the total direct compensation packages for our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
The Compensation Committee intends to review our compensation peer group at least annually and make adjustments to its composition if warranted, taking into account changes in both our business and the businesses of the companies in the peer group.
Compensation Elements
Our executive compensation program consists of two principal elements – base salary and long-term incentive compensation in the form of equity awards. It also includes participation in our broad-based health and welfare benefit programs. In addition, certain of our named executive officers also received sign-on or retention bonus payments for 2021.
Base Salaries
We provide a base salary as a fixed source of compensation for our executive officers, including our named executive officers, allowing them a degree of certainty relative to the portion of their variable compensation, which consists of equity awards with values that are generally tied to the price of our common stock and which, prior to the Business Combination, did not provide any opportunity for the executive officers to achieve liquidity. The Compensation Committee recognizes the importance of base salaries as an element of compensation that helps to attract and retain highly qualified executive talent. Our current practice is to not provide our executive officers with annual base salaries exceeding $350,000.
The initial base salaries of our executive officers were established at the time they entered into an employment offer letter or confirmatory employment offer letter with us and took into account their qualifications, experience, comparable market data and prior base salary level. Prior to the completion of the Business Combination, the compensation committee of Opendoor Labs reviewed, and adjusted as necessary, the base salaries for each executive officer at least annually.
Following the completion of the Business Combination, the Compensation Committee reviewed the base salaries of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and determined to maintain their annual base salaries for 2021 at their 2020 levels, except for Ms. Stevens, whose annual base salary was increased to $350,000 to reflect the competitive base salaries of executives holding comparable positions at the companies in our compensation peer group.
Going forward, the Compensation Committee intends to review the annual base salaries of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, as part of its annual review of the compensation arrangements of our executive officers. The Compensation Committee will take into consideration a competitive market analysis prepared by its compensation consultant, the recommendations of our CEO (except with respect to his own annual base salary) and the factors set forth in “Compensation-Setting Process – Setting Target Total Direct Compensation” above.
Long-Term Equity Compensation
We believe that providing long-term incentives in the form of equity awards encourages our executive officers, including our named executive officers, to take a long-term outlook and provides them with an incentive to manage the Company from the perspective of an owner with an equity stake in the business. By providing opportunities for our executive officers, including our named executive officers, to benefit from future successes in the Company through the appreciation of the value of their equity awards, our Board and the Compensation Committee believe that equity awards align our executive officers’ interests and contributions with the long-term interests of our stockholders. In addition, our Board and the Compensation Committee believe that offering meaningful equity ownership in the Company is helpful in retaining our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and other key employees.

Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Our named executive officers have been granted TRSU awards, PRSU awards, or a mix of TRSU awards and PRSU awards. Each unit granted pursuant to a TRSU or PRSU award represents a contingent right to receive one share of our common stock for each unit that vests. The size and precise terms of the awards were determined by the compensation committee or the board of directors of Opendoor Labs at the time of hire of, or execution of the confirmatory employment offer letter by, the individual named executive officer. In determining the amount of such awards, each individual's anticipated role, qualifications and experience, and the results of a competitive market data analysis, were considered. For descriptions of equity awards granted to our named executive officers in 2020 and 2021, see “Executive Compensation Tables,” below.
Following the completion of the Business Combination, the Compensation Committee assumed responsibility for reviewing and granting equity awards to our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and granted the equity awards discussed below to Messrs. Wu and Low Ah Kee and Ms. Stevens. These awards were granted in March 2021 following the filing of a Form S-8 registration statement permitting the Company to make equity awards under the Opendoor Technologies Inc. 2020 Incentive Award Plan (the “2020 Plan”). In making its determinations, the Compensation Committee considered the equity awards specified in the employment offer letter or confirmatory employment offer letter of the respective named executive officers, a competitive market analysis prepared by its compensation consultant, the recommendations of our CEO (except with respect to his own equity award), the economic position of the Company, broader economic conditions, our historical compensation structure, the potential dilutive effect of the awards on our stockholders and the other factors set forth in “Compensation-Setting Process – Setting Target Total Direct Compensation” above.
Equity Awards for Mr. Wu
In late 2019, the board of directors of Opendoor Labs conducted an evaluation of Mr. Wu’s compensation structure. The evaluation was driven by the fact that, at the time, all of Mr. Wu’s existing equity had vested. In addition, other than his founder shares acquired in 2013 and 2014, Mr. Wu had not been awarded any equity since Opendoor Labs was first incorporated in 2013. The Opendoor Labs board of directors desired to structure a compensation package that would (i) support Mr. Wu's enduring engagement and commitment, (ii) motivate him to create significant long-term stockholder value, (iii) recognize the unique market opportunity and extensive time horizon that Opendoor Labs would need to achieve its ultimate vision, and (iv) be fair and aligned with the market, recognizing that there existed a broad set of company peers. At the time the Opendoor Labs board of directors was considering Mr. Wu’s compensation package, the Business Combination was not yet contemplated.
In order to achieve these objectives, the Opendoor Labs board of directors engaged Compensia in late 2019 to assess its founder CEO pay levels and provide input on a potential performance-based equity strategy. Based on the advice of Compensia and other factors, the Opendoor Labs board of directors entered into an employment letter agreement with Mr. Wu on January 6, 2020, which was amended and restated throughout the year in 2020 to account for intervening events, including the pending Business Combination. Ultimately, under the terms of an amended and restated employment agreement, dated September 14, 2020 (the “Wu Agreement”), Mr. Wu received awards of (i) 1,364,561 TRSUs, and (ii) 9,202,707 PRSUs in 2020. The number of TRSUs and PRSUs was adjusted to 2,207,236 and 14,885,774, respectively, to reflect the Business Combination exchange ratio. The 2,207,236 TRSUs vest only if both a service-based condition and a liquidity event condition are satisfied. The liquidity event condition was satisfied in February 2021 upon the effective date of the Company’s registration statement filed under the Securities Act for the sale of our common stock. The service-based condition will be satisfied in 16 successive equal quarterly installments following November 1, 2019. The TRSU award is subject to vesting acceleration as described under “Executive Compensation Tables — Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control.” The vesting of the 14,885,774 PRSUs is discussed below.
Around the same time that the Opendoor Labs board of directors approved the Wu Agreement, they also approved the merger agreement for the Business Combination, which was signed on September 15, 2020. As disclosed in the Company’s Form S-4 registration statement for the Business Combination declared effective on November 27, 2020, the Company entered into a non-binding letter of intent for the Business Combination on August 7, 2020. This letter of intent provided for equity awards to Mr. Wu representing 1% of the outstanding capital stock of Opendoor Labs at closing of the Business Combination on an as-converted basis, or 5,438,506 TRSUs. Although the Form S-4 disclosed the intention to make the grant within 90 days following the closing of the Business Combination, the grant was not made until after the Company’s Form S-8 was filed on March 8, 2021 covering the 2020 Plan. On March 30, 2021, the Compensation Committee granted to Mr. Wu the 5,438,506 TRSUs originally contemplated in August of 2020. In making the grant, the Compensation Committee reviewed the factors considered by the Opendoor Labs board of directors, including peer group information, advice provided by Compensia, market rates for employee and consultant compensation, the economic position of the
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2022 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Company, broader economic conditions, the Company’s historical employee and consultant compensation structure, and the potential dilutive effect of equity awards on the Company’s stockholders. The Compensation Committee also sought to bring into balance Mr. Wu's service-based and performance-based equity awards, while still ensuring that the majority of his equity awards, as well as his target total direct compensation, was performance-based. With this final portion of the compensation package awarded, the portion of Mr. Wu’s outstanding equity awards that were wholly performance-based as of the date of the 5,438,506 TRSU grant was 68%.
The 5,438,506 TRSUs are subject to a four-year vesting schedule with 1/16th of the units subject to the award vesting in successive equal quarterly installments following January 15, 2021, subject to Mr. Wu’s continuous service with us through each such vesting date. The TRSU award is subject to vesting acceleration as described under “Executive Compensation Tables — Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control.”
The performance-based vesting conditions of the 14,885,774 PRSUs are, subject to Mr. Wu’s continued performance of services to us through each applicable vesting date, satisfied as to 1/6th of the PRSUs, or 2,480,963 shares, upon the achievement of each of six predetermined share price milestones based on the 60-day volume weighted average closing price (“VWAP”) of our common stock or, if earlier, based on the per share consideration received in connection with a Change of Control (as defined in the Wu Agreement). In the event of a Change of Control structured as a stock-for-stock acquisition, the value of the acquiror’s shares will be valued based on the 60-day VWAP ending on and including the trading day occurring on the day prior to consummation of such Change of Control. The PRSU award is not otherwise entitled to accelerated vesting in connection with a Change of Control. These price milestones, adjusted for the exchange ratio in the Business Combination, are $18.11, $23.54, $30.60, $39.78, $51.71 and $67.23, respectively.
In the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment by Mr. Wu prior to the time that the performance-based vesting criteria of the PRSU award have been satisfied, the PRSU award will remain outstanding and vest as to performance when the applicable share price milestones are satisfied, provided they are satisfied within 60 days after such termination of employment. In the event such share price milestones are not satisfied by the end of such 60-day period, the PRSU award will expire.
Although Mr. Wu has earned the first tranche of the PRSU award at the price milestone of $18.11, he will not earn the second tranche of the award until the 60-day VWAP of our common stock equals or exceeds $23.54 (with additional tranches tied to even higher 60-day VWAPs of $30.60, $39.78, $51.71 and $67.23, respectively).
For illustrative purposes, the table below sets forth the value to all Opendoor stockholders assuming each higher price milestone is achieved, based on the market capitalization of the Company using the closing price of our common stock of $9.85 on March 29, 2022, the Annual Meeting Record Date, and 623,394,756 shares, the number of Opendoor shares outstanding on the Record Date. As shown in the table below, if Mr. Wu achieves all six price milestones under his PRSU award, this would imply a market capitalization of more than $41.9 billion, which is approximately a 590% increase to our market capitalization on March 29, 2022.

Equity Awards for Mr. Low Ah Kee
Pursuant to the offer letter agreement with Mr. Low Ah Kee executed in October 2020, which the Opendoor Labs board of directors negotiated prior to the completion of the Business Combination (the “Low Ah Kee Agreement”), the Compensation Committee granted Mr. Low Ah Kee the following equity awards on March 9, 2021:
Equity Award
Number of Shares
Time-based restricted stock unit ("TRSU") award
4,642,348
Performance-based restricted stock unit ("PRSU") award
808,771
Time-Based Restricted Stock Unit Award – The TRSU award is subject to a four-year vesting schedule with 25% of the total number of units subject to the award vesting November 15, 2021, the first anniversary of his vesting commencement date and 1/16th of the total number of units subject to the award vesting on a quarterly basis thereafter, subject to his continuous service with us through each such vesting date. The TRSU award is subject to vesting acceleration as described under “Executive Compensation Tables — Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control.”
Performance-Based Restricted Stock Unit Award – The PRSU award vests, subject to Mr. Low Ah Kee’s continued performance of services to us through each applicable vesting date, as to 1/5th of the PRSUs, or approximately 161,754 shares, upon the achievement of the share price milestones set forth below. The share price is to be calculated based on the VWAP of our common stock over any 60-day period or, if earlier, based on the per share consideration received in connection with a Change in Control (as defined in the 2020 Plan). In the event of a Change in Control structured as a stock-for-stock acquisition, the value of the acquiror’s shares will be valued based on the 60-day VWAP ending on and including the trading day occurring on the day prior to consummation of such Change in Control. The PRSU award is not otherwise entitled to accelerated vesting in connection with a Change in Control.
In the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment by Mr. Low Ah Kee prior to the time that the performance- based vesting criteria of the PRSU award have been satisfied, the PRSU award will remain outstanding and vest as to performance when the applicable share price milestones are satisfied, provided they are satisfied within 60 days after such termination of employment. In the event such share price milestones are not satisfied by the end of such 60-day period, the PRSU award will expire.
Share Price Milestones
1/5th of the PRSU award shares at $23.54
1/5th of the PRSU award shares at $30.60
1/5th of the PRSU award shares at $39.78
1/5th of the PRSU award shares at $51.71
1/5th of the PRSU award shares at $67.23
Mr. Low Ah Kee will not earn the first tranche of the award until the 60-day VWAP of our common stock equals or exceeds $23.54 (with additional tranches tied to even higher 60-day VWAPs of $30.60, $39.78, $51.71 and $67.23, respectively).
For illustrative purposes, see the table set forth above under “Equity Awards for Mr. Wu” for the value to all Opendoor stockholders assuming each price milestone is achieved.
The Compensation Committee believes the performance targets ensure that Mr. Low Ah Kee remains highly incentivized over an extended period of time to capitalize on our unique market opportunity to grow the Company and generate stockholder value, while at the same time ensuring his enduring engagement and commitment to the Company.
Equity Awards for Ms. Stevens
On March 30, 2021, the Compensation Committee granted to Ms. Stevens two TRSU awards, one that could be settled for 121,316 shares of our common stock (the “First Award”) and one that could be settled for 153,684 shares of our common stock (the “Second Award”).

The First Award was subject to a one-year vesting schedule with 25% of the units subject to the award vesting on March 1, 2021, the vesting commencement date, and the remaining 75% of the units vesting on the one-year anniversary of the vesting commencement date, subject to her continuous service with us through such vesting date. Due to Ms. Stevens’ separation from the Company on September 1, 2021, the remaining 75% of the First Award was forfeited.
The Second Award was subject to a two-year vesting schedule with 25% of the units subject to the award vesting on June 15, 2021, the vesting commencement date, 50% of the units vesting on the one-year anniversary of the vesting commencement date and 25% of the units vesting on the two-year anniversary of the vesting commencement date, subject to her continuous service with us through each such vesting date. Due to Ms. Stevens’ separation from the Company on September 1, 2021, the remaining 75% of the Second Award was forfeited.
Annual Cash Bonuses
In 2021, as in past years, we did not maintain an annual cash bonus or other incentive plan for our executive officers, including our named executive officers. Instead, our Board and the Compensation Committee relied primarily on the long-term incentive compensation opportunities granted to our executive officers in the form of both the previously granted and newly granted awards using both TRSU awards with time-based vesting requirements and PRSU awards with performance-based vesting requirements.
Sign-On and Retention Bonuses
In order to attract top talent, we from time to time provide sign-on and retention compensation to our executive officers.
In connection with the hire of Mr. Low Ah Kee in November 2020, the board of directors of Opendoor Labs approved a cash sign-on and retention bonus in the amount of $300,000, $150,000 of which was paid within five business days after his employment start date and the remaining $150,000 of which was paid within five business days after the first anniversary of his employment start date. We believed that these bonuses were appropriate as an incentive for Mr. Low Ah Kee to join us and to help retain Mr. Low Ah Kee through the first anniversary of his employment start date, in addition to Mr. Low Ah Kee’s equity awards discussed above.
In connection with the hire of Mr. Morillo in January 2021, we approved a cash sign-on and retention bonus in the aggregate amount of $3,800,000, $1,500,000 of which was paid as a sign-on bonus in January 2021, $1,150,000 of which was paid as a retention bonus in January 2022 after the first anniversary of his employment start date and $1,150,000 of which will be paid as a retention bonus in 2023 within 30 days after the second anniversary of his employment start date, subject to his continuous active employment with us through such anniversary date. We believed that these bonuses were appropriate as an incentive for Mr. Morillo to join us and to help retain Mr. Morillo through the second anniversary of his employment start date.
Health and Welfare Benefits
Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in the same employee benefit plans, and on the same terms and conditions, as all other full-time, salaried U.S. employees, subject to the terms and eligibility requirements of such plans. These benefits include medical, dental and vision insurance, business travel insurance, an employee assistance program, health and dependent care flexible spending accounts, basic life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance, short-term and long-term disability insurance, commuter benefits and reimbursement for mobile phone coverage.
We also sponsor a Section 401(k) retirement savings plan (the “Section 401(k) Plan”) that provides our executive officers, including our named executive officers, with an opportunity to save for retirement on a tax-advantaged basis subject to the limits imposed by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), to the same extent as our other eligible full-time employees. Participants are able to defer up to 90% of their eligible compensation subject to applicable annual limits under the Code. All participants’ interests in their deferrals are 100% vested when contributed. Currently, we do not match employee contributions to the Section 401(k) Plan. We believe that providing a vehicle for tax-deferred retirement savings though our Section 401(k) Plan adds to the overall desirability of our executive compensation package and further incentivizes our employees, including our named executive officers.
We design our employee benefits programs to be affordable and competitive in relation to the market as well as compliant with applicable laws and practices. We adjust our employee benefits programs as needed based upon regular monitoring of applicable laws and practices and the competitive market.

Perquisites and Other Personal Benefits
Currently, we do not view perquisites or other personal benefits as a significant component of our executive compensation program. Accordingly, we do not generally provide perquisites or other personal benefits to our named executive officers, except as generally made available to our employees or in situations where we believe it is appropriate to assist an individual in the performance of his or her duties, to make him or her more efficient and effective and for recruitment and retention purposes. During 2021, our named executive officers did not receive perquisites or other personal benefits that were, in the aggregate, $10,000 or more for each individual, except for Messrs. Wu and Wong. For Messrs. Wu and Wong, the Company paid filing fees of $280,000 and $45,000, respectively, in connection with their compliance with the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvement Act of 1976 (the “HSR Act”) related to the acquisition of shares of our stock, as well as a separate tax “gross up” payment to each of them for any taxes they incurred in connection with the payment by the Company of the HSR Act filing fee on their behalf.
In the future, we may provide perquisites or other personal benefits in limited circumstances, such as those described in the preceding paragraph. All future practices with respect to perquisites or other personal benefits will be approved and subject to periodic review by the Compensation Committee.
Employment Offer Letters
We have entered into written employment offer letters with each of our named executive officers. Each of these employment offer letters was approved prior to the Business Combination by the compensation committee and/or board of directors of Opendoor Labs. We believe that these arrangements were necessary to secure the services or the continued service of these individuals in a highly competitive job market.
Each of these employment agreements does not have a specific term, provides for “at will” employment (meaning that either we or the named executive officer may terminate the employment relationship at any time without cause) and generally set forth the named executive officer’s base salary, eligibility to participate in our employee benefit plans and programs in effect for similarly situated employees during his or her employment, in some instances provided for a sign-on bonus and/or retention payment and, in certain instances, provided for certain of the named executive officers to receive equity awards on the terms and conditions as set forth in the employment offer letter. In addition, each named executive officer either agreed to execute and be bound by our Confidential Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement or confirmed that the named executive officer agreed to continue to be bound by the Confidential Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement he or she had previously executed.
Further, each of these employment offer letters provides for certain vesting acceleration benefits upon an involuntary termination of employment. These arrangements are discussed in more detail in “Post-Employment Compensation” below and “Potential Payments upon Termination or Change in Control” elsewhere in this proxy statement.
For a detailed description of the employment offer letters with our named executive officers, see “Employment Offer Letters” below.
Post-Employment Compensation
Certain of the employment offer letters with our named executive officers provide for protections in the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment, including a termination of employment in connection with a change in control of the Company, in exchange for the execution of a general release of claims in favor of the Company. In the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment by Messrs. Wu and Low Ah Kee prior to the time that the performance-based vesting criteria of their PRSU awards have been satisfied, the PRSU awards will remain outstanding and vest as to performance when the applicable performance-based vesting criteria are satisfied, provided they are satisfied within 60 days after such termination of employment. In the event such performance-based vesting criteria are not satisfied by the end of such 60-day period, the PRSU awards will expire.
In addition, we entered into agreements providing for the accelerated vesting of all time-based equity awards upon an involuntary termination of employment in connection with a change in control of the Company with each of our named executive officers in February 2022.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

We believe these provisions provide reasonable compensation in the form of certain limited benefits to the named executive officer if he or she leaves our employ under certain circumstances to facilitate his or her transition to new employment. Further, we seek to mitigate any potential employer liability and avoid future disputes or litigation by requiring a departing named executive officer to sign a general release of all claims in favor of the Company as a condition to receiving post-employment compensation payments or benefits. We believe that these agreements help maintain our named executive officers’ continued focus on their assigned duties to maximize stockholder value if there is a potential change in control transaction and mitigate the risk of subsequent disputes or litigation.
Under these provisions, all payments and benefits in the event of a change in control of the Company are payable only if there is a connected loss of employment by a named executive officer (a so-called “double-trigger” arrangement). We use this double-trigger arrangement to protect against the loss of retention value following a change in control of the Company and to avoid windfalls, both of which could occur if vesting of either equity or cash-based awards accelerated automatically as a result of the transaction.
We are not obligated to provide excise tax payments, which we refer to as gross-ups, to any of our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
We believe that having in place reasonable and competitive post-employment compensation arrangements, including in the event of a change in control of the Company, is essential to attracting and retaining highly-qualified executive officers. The Compensation Committee does not consider the specific amounts payable under the post-employment compensation arrangements when determining our named executive officers’ compensation. We do believe, however, that these arrangements are necessary to offer competitive compensation packages.
Hedging and Pledging of Securities
We believe it is improper and inappropriate for any person associated with Opendoor to engage in short-term or speculative transactions involving the Company's securities. Our directors, officers and employees are, therefore, prohibited from engaging in short sales and buying or selling puts, calls, options or other derivative securities of the Company.
Our Insider Trading and Trading Window Policy also prohibits our directors, officers and employees from purchasing any financial instruments (including prepaid variable forward contracts, equity swaps, collars and exchange funds) or otherwise engaging in transactions that are designed to or have the effect of hedging or offsetting any decrease in the market value of the Company's equity securities, whether they are granted to such individual by the Company as part of such person's compensation or otherwise held, directly or indirectly, by such individual.
In addition, we prohibit our executive officers, all other employees and the non-employee members of our Board from holding our securities in a margin account without the prior approval of the Board or duly authorized committees thereof. We also prohibit pledging our securities as collateral for a loan without the prior consent of our Head of Legal.
Tax and Accounting Considerations
The Compensation Committee takes the applicable tax and accounting requirements into consideration in designing and overseeing our executive compensation program.
Deductibility of Executive Compensation
For federal income tax purposes, publicly-traded companies may be prohibited under Section 162(m) of the Code from deducting employee enumeration in excess of $1 million paid to their chief executive officer, chief financial officer, any other executive officer whose total compensation is required to be reported to stockholders under the Exchange Act by reason of such individual being among the three highest compensated executive officers for the tax year and any executive officer who was subject to the deduction limit in any tax year beginning after December 31, 2016. Even if Section 162(m) may limit the compensation deduction, our Board and the Compensation Committee believe our compensation policies and practices should be designed to help us meet our established goals and objectives. While the Compensation Committee will consider the impact of the Section 162(m) deduction limitation, it intends to continue to compensate our executive officers, including our named executive officers, in a manner that is in the best interest of our stockholders and reserves the right to make compensation decisions that may not be deductible under Section 162(m) where the Compensation Committee determines the compensation to be appropriate and in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation
The Compensation Committee takes accounting considerations into account in designing compensation plans and arrangements for our executive officers and other employees. Chief among these is the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s Accounting Standards Codification, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) (“ASC Topic 718”), the standard which governs the accounting treatment of certain stock-based compensation. Among other things, ASC Topic 718 requires us to record a compensation expense in our income statement for all equity awards granted to our executive officers and other employees. This compensation expense is based on the grant date “fair value” of the equity award and, in most cases, will be recognized ratably over the award’s requisite service period (which, generally, will correspond to the award’s vesting schedule). This compensation expense is also reported in the compensation tables below, even though recipients may never realize any value from their equity awards.
HSR Act Filing Fee
The HSR Act requires that any time certain individuals acquire shares of Company stock and, after such acquisition, hold more than a certain amount of value in stock of the Company, those individuals must make a filing under the HSR Act, unless an exception applies. Due to the value of shares of Company stock acquired by Messrs. Wu and Wong, they were each required to make a filing and related payments under the HSR Act, in the amounts of $280,000 and $45,000, respectively. On March 30, 2021, the Compensation Committee agreed to pay such HSR Act filing fees on behalf of Messrs. Wu and Wong, on a one-time basis, as compensation to them. The Compensation Committee also approved a separate tax gross-up payment to Messrs. Wu and Wong for taxes they incurred in connection with the payment by the Company of the HSR Act filing fees on their behalf.

Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control
We maintain arrangements that compensate our named executive officers in the event of certain terminations of employment or a change in control of the Company. In particular, the employment offer letters with our named executive officers provide for protections in the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment, including a termination of employment in connection with a change in control of the Company.
Although certain of these offer letters provided for accelerated vesting of equity awards in connection with a change in control of the Company, we entered into written agreements with each of our named executive officers in February 2022 providing for uniform vesting acceleration terms applicable to all existing and future equity awards that are subject to service-based vesting conditions. Pursuant to the accelerated vesting agreements, notwithstanding anything in the 2014 Plan or the 2020 Plan to the contrary, if (1) we consummate a change in control (as defined in the applicable plan) and (2) in connection with or within 12 months after the change in control either (a) the named executive officer’s employment with the Company is terminated without “cause” or (b) the named executive officer resigns from the Company for “good reason” (each as defined the applicable agreement), then 100% of his or her unvested awards will become fully vested as to service. To be eligible to receive this acceleration benefit, a named executive officer must (i) continue to comply with his or her obligations under his or her employment offer letter and Confidential Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement and (ii) execute a general release of claims in favor of the Company.
In the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment by Messrs. Wu and Low Ah Kee prior to the time that the performance-based vesting criteria of their PRSU awards have been satisfied, the PRSU awards will remain outstanding and vest as to performance when the applicable performance-based vesting criteria are satisfied, provided they are satisfied within 60 days after such termination of employment. In the event such performance-based vesting criteria are not satisfied by the end of such 60-day period, the PRSU awards will expire. In the event of a change in control, the performance-based vesting criteria will be determined by reference to the value of shares paid for all of the Company's common stock or, if the change in control is structured as a stock-for-stock acquisition, the value of the acquiror's shares shall be valued based on the 60-day VWAP ending on and including the trading day occurring on the day prior to the consummation of such change in control. The PRSUs are not otherwise entitled to accelerated vesting in connection with a change in control.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The table below quantifies certain compensation and benefits that would have become payable to each of our named executive officers (i) if his or her employment had terminated on December 31, 2021 without Cause or due to resignation for Good Reason, (ii) if a Change in Control had occurred on December 31, 2021, but there was no termination of the officer's employment and (iii) if a Change in Control had occurred on December 31, 2021, immediately following which the officer's employment was terminated without Cause or due to resignation for Good Reason. The amounts shown are estimates of the amounts that would be received upon a change in control or termination of employment based on the closing market price of the Company’s common stock on December 31, 2021. The actual amounts could be determined only at the time of any actual change in control or termination of employment.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation
None of our executive officers currently serve, or have served during the last year, as a member of the board of directors or compensation committee of any entity that has one or more executive officers serving as a member of our Board.
Non-Employee Director Compensation
Our Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy provides non-employee directors with fixed annual cash retainer fees, as well as long-term equity compensation awards, for their service on the Board. Additional fixed annual cash retainer fees are paid to non-employee directors for committee membership and chairperson service.
The non-employee directors eligible to participate in the Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy are Adam Bain, Cipora Herman, Jonathan Jaffe, Pueo Keffer, Jason Kilar, John Rice and Glenn Solomon. Certain principal features of the compensation provided under the Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy are described in more detail below. The summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the policy.
Cash Compensation
Each non-employee director receives cash compensation for service on the Board. The annual cash compensation amounts are payable in equal quarterly installments, in arrears, promptly following the end of each quarter in which the service occurred, provided that the quarterly payment for each non-employee director is prorated for any partial quarter of service by such non-employee director.
Annual Board Service Retainer:
All Eligible Directors: $50,000
Non-Executive Chair/Lead Director (as applicable): $75,000 (in lieu of above)
Annual Committee Member Service Retainer:
Member of the Audit Committee: $10,000
Member of the Compensation Committee: $7,500
Member of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee: $5,000
Annual Committee Chair Service Retainer (in lieu of Committee Member Service Retainer):
Chair of the Audit Committee: $20,000
Chair of the Compensation Committee: $15,000
Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee: $10,000
Prior to the start of each fiscal year, a non-employee director may elect to receive 100% of his or her annual cash compensation for the next fiscal year as TRSUs under the 2020 Plan (or any successor equity plan) for that number of shares equal to (a) the projected annual cash compensation for such non-employee director for the fiscal year based on Board and committee membership as of the first day of such fiscal year divided by (b) the average Fair Market Value (as defined in the 2020 Plan) over the 20 trading days ending on the last trading day of the month preceding the month in which the TRSU grant is made (the “Share Price”). Each such grant will vest in four equal installments on the last trading day in each quarter occurring during such fiscal year. Due to the timing of the closing of the Business Combination, the Compensation Committee approved an exception to the Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy that allowed the non-employee directors to make this election in June 2021. For 2021, all non-employee directors, other than Messrs. Jaffe and Rice, elected to receive their cash compensation in the form of TRSUs, which were granted on June 30, 2021.
Equity Compensation
Unless otherwise provided by the Board, each person who is elected or appointed for the first time to be a non-employee director will automatically, upon the date of his or her initial election or appointment, be granted a TRSU for that number of shares of our common stock equal to $400,000 divided by the Share Price, rounded to the nearest whole share. Each such initial grant will vest in a series of equal annual installments on the first, second and third anniversary of the date of

grant, provided in each case that the non-employee director continues to be a non-employee director on such vesting date. Pursuant to this provision, director John Rice automatically received a grant, and director Cipora Herman received a grant approved by the Compensation Committee, in each case for 13,342 TRSUs in March 2021.
Unless otherwise provided by the Board, at the close of business on the date of each annual meeting of our stockholders, each person who is then a non-employee director will automatically be granted a TRSU for that number of shares of common stock equal to $200,000 divided by the Share Price, rounded to the nearest whole share. Each such annual grant will vest in a single installment on the earlier to occur of (a) our next annual meeting of stockholders and (b) the first anniversary of the date of grant, provided that the non-employee director continues to be a non-employee director on such vesting date.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, for each non-employee director in office as of immediately prior to the closing of a Change in Control (as defined in the 2020 Plan), their then-outstanding equity awards granted pursuant to the Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy will become fully vested immediately prior to the closing of such Change in Control.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PERSON TRANSACTIONS
Policies and Procedures for Approval of Related Person Transactions
Our Board recognizes the fact that transactions with related persons present a heightened risk of conflicts of interests (or the perception thereof). We have a written policy on transactions with related persons that is in conformity with the requirements for issuers having publicly held common stock that is listed on Nasdaq. Under the policy, our legal team is primarily responsible for developing and implementing processes and procedures to obtain information with respect to potential related person transactions and then determining, based on the facts and circumstances, whether such potential related person transactions do, in fact, constitute related person transactions requiring compliance with the policy. In addition, any potential related person transaction that is proposed to be entered into by the Company must be reported to the Company's Head of Legal by both the related person and the person at the Company responsible for such potential related person transaction.
If our legal team determines that a transaction or relationship is a related person transaction requiring compliance with the policy, our Head of Legal is required to present to the Audit Committee all relevant facts and circumstances relating to the related person transaction. Any proposed transaction that has been identified as a related person transaction may be consummated or materially amended only following approval by the Audit Committee in accordance with the provisions of our policy. No director may participate in the approval of a related person transaction for which such director is a related person. In the event that it is inappropriate for the Audit Committee to review the transaction for reasons of conflict of interest or otherwise, after taking into account possible recusals by Audit Committee members, then the related person transaction shall be approved by another independent body of our Board.

PROPOSAL TWO — RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
The Audit Committee of our Board has appointed the firm of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. Although stockholder ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP is not required by law, our Board believes that it is advisable to give stockholders an opportunity to ratify this appointment. If this proposal is not approved at the Annual Meeting, our Audit Committee will reconsider its appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP. Deloitte & Touche LLP served as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ended December 31, 2021. Representatives of Deloitte & Touche LLP are expected to be present at the Annual Meeting and will have the opportunity to make a statement, if they desire to do so, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions from our stockholders. Even if the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP is ratified, the Audit Committee retains the discretion to select a different independent registered public accounting firm at any time if it determines that such a change would be in the best interests of the Company.
As previously disclosed in the Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 18, 2020 (the “Form 8-K”), on December 18, 2020, the Audit Committee approved the engagement of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. On the same date, the Audit Committee dismissed Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm.
In connection with the Business Combination, SCH had engaged Marcum to audit its financial statements included in SCH's registration statement on Form S-4 filed with the SEC. The report of Marcum on the financial statements of SCH as of December 31, 2019, and for the period from October 18, 2019 (inception) through December 31, 2019, did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and was not qualified or modified as to uncertainties, audit scope or accounting principles, except for an explanatory paragraph in such report regarding substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.
During the period from October 18, 2019 (inception) to December 31, 2019, and the subsequent interim period through December 18, 2020, there were no disagreements between SCH and Marcum on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Marcum, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in its reports on SCH's financial statements for such period. During the period from October 18, 2019 (inception) to December 31, 2019, and the subsequent interim period through December 18, 2020, there were no “reportable events” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K under the Exchange Act).
During the years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 and the subsequent interim period through December 18, 2020, we did not consult with Deloitte with respect to (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to us that Deloitte concluded was an important factor considered by us in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any other matter that was the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event (as defined above).
We provided Marcum with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested that Marcum furnish us with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the statements made by Opendoor set forth above. A copy of Marcum's letter, dated December 18, 2020, was filed as Exhibit 16.1 to the Form 8-K.
Board Recommendation

The Board recommends a vote “FOR” the ratification of the appointment by the Audit Committee of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022.

Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures
The Audit Committee has adopted a policy (the “Pre-Approval Policy”) that sets forth the procedures and conditions pursuant to which audit and non-audit services proposed to be performed by the independent auditor may be pre-approved. The Pre-Approval Policy generally provides that we will not engage Deloitte & Touche LLP to render any audit, audit-related, tax or permissible non-audit service unless the service is either (i) explicitly approved by the Audit Committee on a case-by-case basis (“specific pre-approval”) or (ii) pre-approved on a collective basis pursuant to the Pre-Approval Policy entered into pursuant to the pre-approval policies and procedures described in the Pre-Approval Policy (“collective pre-approval”). Unless a type of service to be provided by Deloitte & Touche LLP has received collective pre-approval, it requires specific pre-approval by the Audit Committee or by a designated member of the Audit Committee to whom the committee has delegated the authority to grant pre-approvals. Any proposed services exceeding pre-approved cost levels or budgeted amounts will also require specific pre-approval. For both types of pre-approval, the Audit Committee will consider whether such services are consistent with the SEC's rules on auditor independence.
All of the services of Deloitte & Touche LLP for 2021 and 2020 described above were pre-approved by the Audit Committee.
Report of the Audit Committee
The Audit Committee has reviewed the audited consolidated financial statements of Opendoor Technologies Inc. (the “Company”) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 and has discussed these financial statements with management and the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee has also received from, and discussed with, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm various communications that such independent registered public accounting firm is required to provide to the Audit Committee, including the matters required to be discussed by the applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm also provided the Audit Committee with a formal written statement required by PCAOB Rule 3526 (Communications with Audit Committees Concerning Independence) describing all relationships between the independent registered public accounting firm and the Company, including the disclosures required by the applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding the independent registered public accounting firm’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence. In addition, the Audit Committee discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm its independence from the Company.
Based on its discussions with management and the independent registered public accounting firm, and its review of the representations and information provided by management and the independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited consolidated financial statements be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

PROPOSAL THREE — APPROVAL, ON AN ADVISORY (NON-BINDING) BASIS, OF THE COMPENSATION OF OUR NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICERS
Background
As required by Section 14A(a)(1) of the Exchange Act, the below resolution enables our stockholders to vote to approve, on an advisory (non-binding) basis, the compensation of our named executive officers as disclosed in this proxy statement. This proposal, commonly known as a “Say-on-Pay Vote”, gives our stockholders the opportunity to express their views on our named executive officers' compensation. The Say-on-Pay Vote is not intended to address any specific item of compensation, but rather the overall compensation of our named executive officers and the philosophy, policies and practices described in this proxy statement.
We encourage our stockholders to review the “Executive Compensation” section of this proxy statement for more information.
As an advisory approval, this proposal is not binding upon us or our Board. However, the Compensation Committee, which is responsible for the design and administration of our executive compensation program, values the opinions of our stockholders expressed through your vote on this proposal. The Board and Compensation Committee will consider the outcome of this vote in making future compensation decisions for our named executive officers. The next Say-on-Pay Vote will occur at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders.
Accordingly, we ask our stockholders to vote “FOR” the following resolution at the Annual Meeting:
“RESOLVED, that the stockholders of Opendoor Technologies Inc. approve, on an advisory (non-binding) basis, the 2021 compensation of Opendoor Technologies Inc.'s named executive officers as described in the Summary Compensation Table and related compensation tables and narrative disclosure set forth in Opendoor Technologies Inc.'s proxy statement for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders.”
Board Recommendation


Our Board unanimously recommends a vote “FOR” the resolution to approve, on an advisory (non-binding) basis, the 2021 compensation of our named executive officers as described in the Summary Compensation Table and related compensation tables and narrative disclosure set forth in Opendoor Technologies Inc.'s proxy statement for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Stockholder Proposals and Director Nominations
Stockholders who intend to have a proposal considered for inclusion in our proxy materials for presentation at our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act must submit the proposal to us at our principal executive offices, 410 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 1600, Tempe, Arizona 85281. Any proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 must be received by us no later than December 9, 2022. We suggest that proponents submit their Rule 14a-8 proposals by certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to our Secretary, Vanessa Gage.
In addition, our Bylaws establish an advance notice procedure with regard to director nominations and other proposals by stockholders that are not intended to be included in our proxy materials, but that a stockholder instead wishes to present directly at an annual meeting. To be properly brought before the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, a notice of the nomination or the matter the stockholder wishes to present at the meeting must be in writing and delivered to or mailed and received by our Secretary at our principal executive offices not later than February 24, 2023 and not before January 25, 2023. The next Say-on-Pay Vote will occur at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders. However, if the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders is more than 30 days earlier, or more than 60 days later, than the first anniversary of the Annual Meeting, notice must be so delivered or received no earlier than the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such annual meeting and the 10th day following the date on which public disclosure of the date of such annual meeting was made. Our Bylaws also specify requirements relating to the content of the notice that stockholders must provide in order for a director nomination or other proposal to be properly presented at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders.
Householding of Annual Meeting Materials
Under the rules adopted by the SEC, we may deliver a single set of proxy materials to one address shared by two or more of our stockholders. This delivery method is referred to as “householding” and can result in significant cost savings. To take advantage of this opportunity, we have delivered only one set of proxy materials to multiple stockholders who share an address, unless we received contrary instructions from the impacted stockholders prior to the mailing date. We agree to deliver promptly, upon written or oral request, a separate copy of the proxy materials, as requested, to any stockholder at the shared address to which a single copy of these documents was delivered. If you prefer to receive separate copies of the proxy statement or annual report, contact Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. by calling 1-866-540-7095 or in writing at 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York 11717, Attention: Householding Department.
In addition, if you currently are a stockholder who shares an address with another stockholder and would like to receive only one copy of future notices and proxy materials for your household, you may notify your broker if your shares are held in a brokerage account or you may notify us if you hold registered shares. Registered stockholders may notify us by contacting Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. at the above telephone number or address.
