ITEM 15. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 

(c) Other Material Information. Item 15(c) is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following at the end thereof:

 

On March 2, 2021, at a meeting of the stockholders of Navistar, stockholders of Navistar voted to: (i) approve and adopt the Merger Agreement; and (ii) approve certain compensation arrangements for Navistar’s named executive officers in connection with the Merger.

 

On July 1, 2021, Navistar filed a Certificate of Merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, pursuant to which the Merger became effective (the “Effective Time”).

 

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, (a) each share of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, unless otherwise provided in the Merger Agreement, was automatically canceled and converted into the right to receive $44.50 in cash, without interest (the “Common Merger Consideration”); (b) each share of Series D Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, unless otherwise provided in the Merger Agreement, was automatically canceled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the portion of the Common Merger Consideration that would have been payable in respect of such share of Series D Stock had such share of Series D Stock been converted into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of the certificate of incorporation of Navistar in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time (the “Series D Merger Consideration” and, together with the Common Merger Consideration, the “Merger Consideration”); and (c) the sole share of Series B Nonconvertible Junior Preference Stock of Navistar, par value $1.00 (“Series B Stock”), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, was unaffected by the Merger and remains outstanding as one share of Series B Stock of the Surviving Corporation, with the same rights, powers, preferences and privileges attributable to the sole share of Series B Stock immediately prior to the Effective Time.

 

In addition, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, at or immediately prior to the Effective Time: (a) each option to purchase shares of Common Stock (each, a “Company Stock Option”) that is then outstanding under any Company Stock Plan (as defined in the Merger Agreement) (whether or not exercisable or vested) was automatically canceled, and Navistar is responsible for the payment to the holder of such Company Stock Option an amount in cash determined by multiplying (i) the excess, if any, of the Merger Consideration over the applicable exercise price of such Company Stock Option by (ii) the number of shares of Common Stock underlying such Company Stock Option (assuming full vesting of the Company Stock Option) had such holder exercised the Company Stock Option in full immediately prior to the Effective Time; (b) each award of Common Stock that was subject to vesting or other forfeiture conditions (each, a “Company Restricted Share”) and each restricted stock unit entitling the holder to delivery of shares of Common Stock, subject to satisfaction of vesting or other forfeiture conditions (together with the Company Restricted Shares, the “Company Restricted Stock Awards”) that was outstanding under any Company Stock Plan (whether or not vested), was automatically canceled, and Navistar is responsible for the payment to the holder an amount in cash equal to the product of the Merger Consideration and the number of shares of Common Stock represented by such Company Restricted Stock Award; and (c) Navistar performance cash units were amended to provide that the applicable performance conditions are deemed to have been achieved at the greater of target or actual performance, with such performance cash unit to otherwise remain outstanding subject to its existing terms and conditions. Restricted cash units whose terms provide only for service-based vesting will continue to be governed by their existing terms and conditions.

 

On July 1, 2021, in connection with the consummation of the Merger, Navistar (i) notified the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) of the closing date of the Merger, (ii) requested that the NYSE suspend trading of the Common Stock and the Series D Stock (together, the “Delisted Stocks”) as soon as practicable after the Effective Time and (iii) requested that the NYSE remove the Delisted Stocks from listing and file a Form 25 with the SEC to report the delisting of the Delisted Stocks from the NYSE. Navistar expects that, in accordance with its request, the NYSE will file a Form 25 on July 1, 2021 to provide notification of such delisting and to effect the deregistration of the Delisted Stocks under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. Navistar intends to file a Form 15 with the SEC to terminate the registration of the Delisted Stocks under the Exchange Act and to suspend its reporting obligations under the Exchange Act with respect to the Delisted Stocks.
