Item 2.01.

Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On January 14, 2021 pursuant to the terms of the previously disclosed Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated November 1, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Fitbit, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), Google LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Parent”), and Magnoliophyta Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), Merger Sub merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”). At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), the Company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Surviving Corporation”).

Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, each outstanding share of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”) and Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B Common Stock,” and each share of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, a “Share”) was automatically canceled, and each Share (other than shares held by Parent, Merger Sub, the Company (including treasury shares) or any of their respective wholly owned subsidiaries (such Shares, “Excluded Shares”)) was automatically converted into the right to receive $7.35 in cash, without interest (the “Merger Consideration”). All Shares underlying vested stock options and vested stock-based awards were converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration (or, in the case of stock options, the difference between the Merger Consideration and the applicable per share exercise price), less any applicable tax withholdings. Unvested stock options and stock-based awards were generally converted into cash-based awards with an equivalent value based on the Merger Consideration, with such unvested stock options and share-based awards continuing to vest on their existing vesting schedules.

The aggregate consideration paid by Parent in the Merger to the Company’s stockholders was approximately $2.1 billion. The source of the funds for the consideration paid by Parent in the Merger was Parent’s existing cash and cash equivalents on hand.

The description of the Merger set forth above does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed by the Company as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 1, 2019, which is incorporated herein by reference.
