Introductory Note

As previously disclosed, on December 21, 2021, Zanite Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Zanite”), entered into a Business Combination Agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”) with Embraer S.A., a Brazilian corporation (sociedade anônima) (“Embraer”), Embraer Aircraft Holding, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“EAH”), and EVE UAM, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Eve”) that was formed for purposes of conducting the UAM Business (as defined in the Business Combination Agreement).

On May 6, 2022, Zanite held a special meeting in lieu of the 2022 annual meeting of its stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to approve, among other things, the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement (the “business combination”). As of the close of business on April 11, 2022, the record date for the Special Meeting, there were 23,000,000 shares of Class A common stock of Zanite, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A common stock”), and 5,750,000 shares of Class B common stock of Zanite, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B common stock”), outstanding. At the Special Meeting, a total of 15,537,117 (or 67.55%) of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock and a total of 5,750,000 (or 100%) of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of Class B common stock, in each case held of record as of April 11, 2022, were present either in person or by proxy, which collectively constituted a quorum for the transaction of business.

At the Special Meeting, Zanite’s stockholders voted on all the proposals (except on the proposal of adjournment, as explained below), each of which was approved, including the business combination proposal. Detailed descriptions of each proposal are included in Zanite’s definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 13, 2022, and mailed to Zanite’s stockholders on or about the same date (as supplemented by a supplement to the definitive proxy statement, dated as of April 28, 2022, the “Proxy Statement”). The proposal to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary or appropriate, to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies was deemed not necessary and not acted upon at the Special Meeting.

On May 9, 2022, in accordance with the Business Combination Agreement, the closing of the business combination (the “Closing”) occurred, pursuant to which Zanite issued 220,000,000 shares of Class A common stock to EAH in exchange for the transfer by EAH to Zanite of all of the issued and outstanding limited liability company interests of Eve (the “Equity Exchange”). As a result of the business combination, Eve is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zanite, which has changed its name to “Eve Holding, Inc.”

As previously announced, on December 21, 2021, December 24, 2021, March 9, 2022, March 16, 2022 and April 4, 2022, in connection with the business combination, Zanite entered into subscription agreements or amendments thereto (as amended from time to time, the “Subscription Agreements”) with certain investors, including certain strategic investors and/or investors with existing relationships with Embraer (the “Strategic Investors”), Zanite Sponsor LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Sponsor”) and EAH (collectively, the “PIPE Investors”), pursuant to which, and on the terms and subject to the conditions of which, Zanite agreed to issue and sell to the PIPE Investors in private placements to close immediately prior to the Closing, an aggregate of 35,730,000 shares of Class A common stock at a purchase price of $10 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $357,300,000, which included the commitment of the Sponsor to purchase 2,500,000 shares of Class A common stock for a purchase price of $25,000,000 and the commitment of EAH to purchase 18,500,000 shares of Class A common stock for a purchase price of $185,000,000 (the “PIPE Investment”). The PIPE Investment was consummated substantially concurrently with the Closing.

Unless the context otherwise requires, “we,” “us,” “our” and the “Company” refer to Zanite prior to Closing and to Eve Holding, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries following the Closing. All references herein to the “Board” refer to the board of directors of Zanite or Eve Holding, Inc., as applicable. In addition, capitalized terms used and not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Proxy Statement.

As a result of and upon the Closing, among other things, (i) all outstanding shares of Class B common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Closing were converted into shares of Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis, (ii) thereafter, all outstanding shares of Class A common stock immediately prior to the Closing were converted into shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of Eve Holding, Inc. (the “Common Stock”) on a one-for-one basis and (iii) all issued and outstanding warrants to purchase one share of Class A common stock at

 

2


an exercise price of $11.50 per share were converted into warrants to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share. Upon the Closing, the Company received approximately $377.0 in gross cash proceeds, consisting of approximately $19.7 million from the Zanite trust account and $357.3 million from the PIPE Investment. Following the Closing, on May 10, 2022, the Common Stock and public warrants outstanding upon the Closing began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) under the symbols “EVEX” and “EVEXW,” respectively.

Immediately after giving effect to the Business Combination, there were 264,332,132 issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock and 25,750,000 issued and outstanding warrants to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, which includes 11,500,000 public warrants and 14,250,000 private placement warrants. Zanite’s public units separated into their component securities upon the Closing and, as a result, no longer trade as a separate security and were delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”). As of the date of the Closing, EAH owns approximately 90.2% of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock, which represents approximately 90.2% of the total voting power of our outstanding shares, our post-Closing directors and executive officers and their respective affiliated entities beneficially owned approximately 2.72% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, which represents approximately 2.72% of the total voting power of our outstanding shares, and the securityholders of Zanite immediately prior to the Closing (which includes Zanite’s initial stockholders) beneficially owned post-Closing approximately 3.84% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, which represents approximately 3.45% of the total voting power of our outstanding shares.

 

Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement

On May 9, 2022, in connection with the consummation of the business combination and as contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with EAH, the Sponsor and certain other holders of the Company’s equity securities that are party thereto, which provides the holders of the Company’s securities party thereto certain demand and piggyback registration rights with respect to their equity securities in the Company. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company agreed to register for resale, pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), certain shares of Common Stock and other of the Company’s equity securities that are held by the parties thereto from time to time. The Registration Rights Agreement contains a three-year lock-up period, pursuant to which, subject to certain exceptions, EAH, the Sponsor and certain other parties thereto will be restricted from transferring the shares of Common Stock and warrants they own immediately following the Closing until the date that is three years after the Closing. The Registration Rights Agreement amends and restates the registration rights agreement that was entered into by Zanite, the Sponsor and the other parties thereto in connection with Zanite’s initial public offering.

The foregoing description of the Registration Rights Agreement is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Registration Rights Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated by reference herein.

Stockholders Agreement

On May 9, 2022, in connection with the consummation of the business combination and as contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement, the Company entered into a Stockholders Agreement (the “Stockholders Agreement”) with EAH and the Sponsor. Pursuant to the terms of the Stockholders Agreement, among other things, (a) EAH has the right to nominate five directors to our initial Board, three of whom shall satisfy the independence requirements of the NYSE, (b) the Sponsor has the right to nominate one director to our initial Board, and (c) EAH and the Sponsor have the right to jointly nominate one director to our initial Board, who shall satisfy the independence requirements of the NYSE. In addition, for so long as EAH directly or indirectly through any of its affiliates holds at least 10% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, EAH will also have the right to: (i) nominate a number of directors to our Board at least proportional to the number of shares of Common Stock owned by EAH directly or indirectly through any of its affiliates; and (ii) appoint a number of representatives to each committee of our Board that is at least proportional to the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock owned by EAH directly or indirectly through any of its affiliates. For so long as EAH directly or indirectly through any of its

 

3


affiliates holds at least 20% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, EAH will also have the right to designate the chairperson of the Company’s Board (who need not be a nominee of EAH), and will also have certain financial data and information access rights.

In addition, for so long as EAH directly or indirectly through any of its affiliates holds at least 35% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, the following actions may not be taken (or agreed to be taken) by the Company without the prior written consent of EAH: (a) the sale of greater than 30% of the assets or voting securities of the Company (subject to certain exceptions); (b) the voluntary liquidation or dissolution of the Company; (c) any amendment to or modification of the Company’s organizational documents that materially and adversely affects EAH in its capacity as a stockholder of the Company; (d) the relocation of the Company’s domicile; (e) any change to the Company’s corporate name; or (f) any change to the size of the Company’s Board.

The foregoing description of the Stockholders Agreement is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Stockholders Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated by reference herein.

Tax Receivable Agreement

On May 9, 2022, in connection with the consummation of the business combination and as contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement, the Company entered into a Tax Receivable Agreement (the “Tax Receivable Agreement”) with EAH. The Tax Receivable Agreement will generally provide for the payment by us to EAH of 75% of certain net tax savings in U.S. federal and state taxes, that the Company actually realizes (or are deemed to realize) in periods after the closing of the business combination as a result of increases in the tax basis of the assets of the UAM Business resulting from the Pre-Closing Restructuring (each as defined in the Business Combination Agreement) and tax benefits related to entering into the Tax Receivable Agreement. The Company expects to retain the benefit of the remaining 25% of these tax savings. To the extent the Company is treated as a member of a consolidated, combined, affiliated or other group filing a joint return for U.S. federal or state income tax purposes of which EAH or an affiliate of EAH is the common parent, taxes included on, and any resulting reduction in taxes on, any such joint return will generally not be taken into account for determining payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement and will instead be governed by the Tax Sharing Agreement, discussed below.

For purposes of the Tax Receivable Agreement, the applicable tax savings will generally be computed by comparing our actual tax liability for a given taxable year to the amount of such taxes that the Company would have been required to pay in such taxable year without the increase in tax basis in the assets of the UAM Business. Except as described below, the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement commenced upon the closing of the business combination and will continue indefinitely. Payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement are not conditioned on EAH’s continued ownership of Common Stock. Further information about the Tax Receivable Agreement is set forth beginning on page 126 of the Proxy Statement in the section entitled, “The Business Combination Proposal — Ancillary Agreements — Tax Receivable Agreement,” and that information is incorporated herein by reference.

The foregoing description of the Tax Receivable Agreement is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Tax Receivable Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated by reference herein.

Tax Sharing Agreement

On May 9, 2022, in connection with the consummation of the business combination and as contemplated by the Stockholders Agreement, the Company entered into a Tax Sharing Agreement (the “Tax Sharing Agreement”) with EAH. The Tax Sharing Agreement governs the allocation of consolidated U.S. income tax liabilities and setting forth agreements with respect to other tax matters. To the extent EAH and the Company are not members of the same consolidated tax group, the allocation of certain tax items will instead be governed by the Tax Receivable Agreement as described above. The Tax Sharing Agreement also governs certain matters related to the resulting consolidated federal income tax returns, as well as state and local returns filed on a consolidated or combined basis.

 

4


The Tax Sharing Agreement also provides for certain payments between EAH and the Company. For periods in which the Company has taxable income that contributes to and increases the overall tax liability of the consolidated group of which EAH or an affiliate is the common parent (the “EAH Consolidated Group”), the Tax Sharing Agreement requires the Company to make payments to EAH equal to the tax liability it would have had had it been outside of the consolidated group. For periods in which the Company’s inclusion in the EAH Consolidated Group decreases the tax liability of the EAH Consolidated Group, tax benefits generated by the Company that are realized by EAH will be accounted for and will apply to offset future payments due from the Company to EAH under the Tax Sharing Agreement. If any tax benefits that have accumulated during the period in which EAH is a member of the EAH Consolidated Group have not been applied to offset payments under the Tax Sharing Agreement at the time the Company ceases to be a member of the EAH Consolidated Group, such uncompensated tax benefits can be used to offset amounts payable by the Company to EAH under the Tax Receivable Agreement as described above. For purposes of determining the amount of payments required to be made by the Company pursuant to the foregoing, and for determining the extent to which tax benefits generated by the Company that are realized by the EAH Consolidated Group may offset future payments under the Tax Sharing Agreement or the Tax Receivable Agreement, the Tax Sharing Agreement will generally disregard 75% of the tax benefits arising from tax basis in the assets of the Company created in the Pre-Closing Restructuring, consistent with the agreed sharing percentages for such tax savings under the Tax Receivable Agreement if the Company were not a member of the EAH Consolidated Group. The Tax Sharing Agreement also contains provisions with respect to tax audits and the filing of tax returns that are customary for tax sharing agreements between members of a consolidated group. Further information about the Tax Sharing Agreement is set forth beginning on page 127 of the Proxy Statement in the section entitled, “The Business Combination Proposal — Ancillary Agreements — Tax Sharing Agreement,” and that information is incorporated herein by reference.

The foregoing description of the Tax Sharing Agreement is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Tax Sharing Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.4 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated by reference herein.

Indemnification of Directors and Officers

The Company has entered into separate indemnification agreements with its directors and executive officers. These agreements, among other things, require the Company to indemnify its directors and executive officers for certain liabilities and expenses, reasonable attorneys’ fees and all other direct or indirect costs, expenses and obligations, including judgments, fines, penalties, interest, appeal bonds, amounts paid in settlement with the approval of the Company, counsel fees and disbursements (including, without limitation, experts’ fees, court costs, retainers, appeal bond premiums, transcript fees, duplicating, printing and binding costs, as well as telecommunications, postage and courier charges) and other fees (including, among others, witness fees, travel expenses and fees of private investigators and professional advisors, actually paid or incurred in connection with investigating, prosecuting, defending, being a witness in or participating in any Claim relating to any Indemnifiable Event (as such terms are defined in each indemnification agreement) incurred by a director or executive officer in any action or proceeding related to the fact that such person is or was a director, officer or fiduciary of the Company, or is or was serving on behalf of the Company or at the request of the Company as a director, officer or fiduciary or similar capacity, of another company.The foregoing description of the indemnification agreements is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of indemnification agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.5 and the terms of which are incorporated by reference herein.

Notwithstanding such exemptions, the Company’s initial Board will be comprised of a majority of independent directors, with four directors who qualify as independent under the rules of the NYSE.

Market Price of and Dividends on the Registrant’s Common Stock and Related Stockholder Matters

Zanite’s publicly-traded Class A common stock, units and warrants were historically listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “ZNTE,” “ZNTEU” and “ZNTEW,” respectively. On May 10, 2022, the Common Stock and public warrants outstanding upon the Closing began trading on the NYSE under the symbols “EVEX” and “EVEXW,” respectively. At the Closing, each of Zanite’s public units separated into its components consisting of one share of common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant and, as a result, the units no longer trade as a separate security.

The Company currently intends to retain its future earnings, if any, to finance the further development and expansion of its business and does not intend to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Any future determination to pay dividends will be at the discretion of the Board and will depend on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, capital requirements, restrictions contained in future agreements and financing instruments, business prospects and such other factors as its Board deems relevant. As a result, you may not receive any return on an investment in your Common Stock unless you sell your Common Stock for a price greater than that which you paid for it. See the section beginning on page 25 of the Proxy Statement titled “Market Price, Ticker Symbol and Dividend Information” and such information is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 4.01.

Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

(a) Dismissal of independent registered public accounting firm.

Prior to the business combination, PricewaterhouseCoopers Auditores Independentes Ltda. (“PwC Brazil”) served as the independent registered public accounting firm for Embraer and its consolidated subsidiaries (“Embraer”). The UAM Business is a carve-out of Embraer and was audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC US”). On March 31, 2022, PwC Brazil was dismissed as the independent registered public accounting firm of Embraer and PwC US was dismissed as the auditor of the UAM Business of Embraer.

PwC US’s reports on the combined financial statements of UAM Business of Embraer as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 did not contain any adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020, and in the subsequent interim period through March 31, 2022, (i) there were no disagreements with PwC US (within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure that if not resolved to PwC US’s satisfaction, would have caused PwC US to make reference thereto in its reports; and (ii) there were no “reportable events” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)).

The Company provided PwC US with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested that PwC US provide a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with such disclosures. A copy of PwC’s letter dated May 13, 2022 is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

On May 9, 2022, the audit committee of the Board approved the engagement of KPMG LLP (“KPMG”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to audit the Company and its subsidiaries consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2022. Accordingly, on May 9,

 

12


2022, WithumSmith+Brown, PC (“Withum”), Zanite’s independent registered public accounting firm prior to the business combination, was informed that it would be replaced by KPMG as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm effective as of such date.

The report of Withum (“Withum’s 2021 Report”) on Zanite’s consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the period from August 7, 2020 (inception) through December 31, 2020 (collectively referred to as the “2020 financial statements”), as amended, included a paragraph containing a going concern qualification, which stated, “The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, if the Company is unable to complete a business combination by May 19, 2021 then the Company may cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating unless a resolution of its Board of Directors is passed at the request of the Sponsor, to extend the period of time the Company will have to consummate a Business Combination up to two times, each by an additional 6 months (until May 19, 2022), subject to the Sponsor purchasing additional Private Placement Warrants. The uncertainty surrounding the date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.”

Withum’s 2021 Report also contained the following statement related to Zanite’s 2020 financial statements, “As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued a public statement entitled Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) (the “Public Statement”) on April 12, 2021, which discusses the accounting for certain warrants as liabilities. The Company previously accounted for its warrants as equity instruments. Management evaluated its warrants against the Public Statement, and determined that the private warrants should be accounted for as liabilities. Accordingly, the 2020 financial statements have been restated to correct the accounting and related disclosure for the warrants.”

The report of Withum on Zanite’s consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2021 and for the period from August 7, 2020 (inception) through December 31, 2020 included a paragraph containing a going concern qualification, which stated, “The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, if the Company is unable to raise additional funds to alleviate liquidity needs as well as complete a Business Combination by the close of business on May 19, 2022, then the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of liquidating. This date for mandatory liquidation and subsequent dissolution raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.”

During the period from August 7, 2020 (the date of incorporation of Zanite) to March 31, 2022 and the subsequent interim period through May 9, 2022, there were no disagreements between the Company and Withum on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Withum, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in its reports on the Company’s financial statements for such period.

During the period from August 7, 2020 (the date of incorporation of Zanite) to March 31, 2022 and the subsequent interim period through May 9, 2022, there were no “reportable events” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K under the Exchange Act).

The Company has provided Withum with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and has requested that Withum furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the statements made by the Company set forth above. A copy of Withum’s letter, dated May 13, 2022, is filed as Exhibit 16.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

(b)    Disclosures regarding the new independent auditor.

Concurrently with the consummation of the business combination, Zanite’s officers and directors, other than Mr. Ricci (who serves as a director of the Company following the business combination), resigned from their respective positions at Zanite.

On the date of the Closing, the Company’s audit committee consisted of Sergio Pedreiro, Marion C. Blakey and Paul Eremenko, with Sergio Pedreiro serving as the chair of the committee.

In addition, each member of the audit committee is able to read and understand financial statements. The Board also determined that at least one member of the Company’s audit committee has past employment experience in finance and accounting, as required under the rules of the NYSE.

The disclosure set forth in Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K under the headings “Executive Compensation,” “Director Compensation,” “Employment Agreements,” “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions” and “Indemnification of Directors and Officers” are incorporated in this Item 5.02 by reference.
