Notice of Satisfaction of Conditions for Early Lock-Up Expiration; Expected Early Lock-Up Expiration Extension Date

In connection with Semrush Holdings, Inc.’s (the “Company”) initial public offering of Class A common stock (the “IPO”), each of the Company’s executive officers, directors, and the holders of substantially all of the Company’s capital stock and securities convertible into or exchangeable for the Company’s capital stock as of the IPO entered into lock-up agreements with the underwriters that restrict such stockholders’ ability to sell or transfer their shares for a period of 180 days after March 24, 2021.

The lock-up agreements provide that if, at any time beginning 90 days after March 24, 2021, (i) the Company has furnished at least one earnings release under Item 2.02 of Form 8-K or filed at least one quarterly report on Form 10-Q or annual report on Form 10-K and (ii) the last reported closing price of the Company’s Class A common stock is at least 25% greater than the IPO price per share set forth on the cover page of the final prospectus for 10 out of 15 consecutive trading days (the “Early Lock-Up Expiration Conditions”), 33% of the shares (which, for purposes of holders of options, shall only include options that have vested as of such date) that are subject to the restrictions set forth in each lock-up agreement will be automatically released from such restrictions, which release shall occur immediately prior to the opening of trading on the day following the end of the 15-day trading period (the “Early Lock-Up Expiration Date”); provided, that if, at the time of the Early Lock-Up Expiration Date, the Company is in a “black-out” period under its insider trading policy (or similar period when trading is not permitted by insiders under the Company’s insider trading policy), the Early Lock-Up Expiration Date shall be delayed (the “Early Lock-Up Expiration Extension”) until the close of trading on the day that is one business day following the date that the Company next announces operating results for the previous fiscal quarter.

On June 22, 2021, the Early Lock-Up Expiration Conditions were satisfied and the Company was in its quarterly “black-out” period.

In accordance with the lock-up agreements, the restricted period for the eligible 33% of the shares subject to each lock-up agreement will end, and such shares will become eligible for immediate sale in the public market, at the open of trading on the second business day following the date that the Company announces its earnings results for its fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021 (the “Early Lock-Up Expiration Extension Date”) (subject to trading limitations on shares held by affiliates of the Company, restrictions under the Company’s insider trading policy and continued vesting of any unvested equity awards as of such date). The Company expects to announce its earnings results for its fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021 in August 2021. The Company will announce the expected Early-Lock Up Expiration Extension Date at least two days prior to the opening of trading on the Early Lock-Up Expiration Extension Date.
