On April 25, 2022, Twitter, Inc. (“Twitter”) announced its entry into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 25, 2022 (as it may be amended from time to time, the “Merger Agreement”), by and among X Holdings I, Inc. (“Parent”), X Holdings II, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Acquisition Sub”), and, solely for the purpose of certain provisions of the Merger Agreement, Elon R. Musk. The Merger Agreement provides for Acquisition Sub to be merged with and into Twitter, with Twitter surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”).

At the Special Meeting, the holders of 459,644,039 Shares were present in person or represented by proxy, representing approximately 60.1% of the voting power of the Shares as of the Record Date, which constituted a quorum.
