Item 8.01

Other Events.

As previously announced, on November 4, 2023, BigBear.ai Holdings, Inc. (“BBAI”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Mergers (the “Merger Agreement”) with Pangiam Ultimate Holdings, LLC (“Seller”), Pangiam Intermediate Holdings, LLC (“Pangiam”), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Seller, Pangiam Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of BBAI and Pangiam Purchaser, LLC, a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of BBAI (“Purchaser”), pursuant to which, Merger Sub will first merge with and into Pangiam and Pangiam will subsequently merge with and into Purchaser, with Purchaser surviving such merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of BBAI (the “Mergers”).

In connection with the Merger Agreement, BBAI filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a preliminary proxy statement (the “Preliminary Proxy Statement”) on January 16, 2024, and a definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) on January 29, 2024.

Litigation Related to the Mergers

Following the filing of the Proxy Statement with the SEC, and as of February 22, 2024, two complaints have been filed by purported BBAI shareholders as individual actions. The first complaint is captioned as follows: Weiss v. BigBear.ai Holdings, Inc. et al., 1:24-cv-00959, filed February 8, 2024 (S.D.N.Y.) (the “Weiss Complaint”). The Weiss Complaint generally alleges that the Proxy Statement is misleading and misrepresents and/or omits certain purportedly material information in violation of applicable federal or state law. The Weiss Complaint seeks, among other things: to enjoin the consummation of the Mergers and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement unless and until the purportedly material information omitted from the Proxy Statement is disclosed; rescission or rescissory damages in the event the Mergers and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement are consummated; direction that defendants file a truthful proxy statement; costs of the actions, including attorneys’ and expert fees; and any other relief the court may deem just and proper. The second complaint is captioned as follows: Scott v. BigBear.ai Holdings, Inc. et al., 1:24-cv-00186-UNA, filed February 12, 2024 (D. Del.) (the “Scott Complaint” and together with the Weiss Complaint, the “Complaints”). The Scott Complaint generally alleges that the Proxy Statement is misleading and misrepresents and/or omits certain purportedly material information in violation of applicable federal or state law. The Scott Complaint seeks, among other things: to enjoin the consummation of the Mergers and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement unless and until the purportedly material information omitted from the Proxy Statement is disclosed; rescission or rescissory damages in the event the Mergers and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement are consummated; a declaration that defendants violated federal securities laws; costs of the actions, including attorneys’ and expert fees; and any other relief the court may deem just and proper.

In addition to the Complaints, beginning on January 23, 2024, purported shareholders of BBAI have sent demand letters alleging similar deficiencies in the Proxy Statement and the Preliminary Proxy Statement as those asserted in the Complaints (the “Disclosure Demands”). On February 17, 2024, a purported shareholder of BBAI issued a demand to inspect BBAI’s books and records pursuant to 8 Del. C. § 220 alleging similar deficiencies in the Proxy Statement as those asserted in the Complaints (the “Section 220 Demand” and together with the Complaints and the Disclosure Demands, the “Matters”).

BBAI management believes that the Matters are without merit and supplemental disclosures are not required or necessary under applicable laws. However, in order to avoid the risk that the Matters delay or otherwise adversely affect the Mergers, and to minimize the costs, risks and uncertainties inherent in litigation, and without admitting any liability or wrongdoing, BBAI has agreed to supplement the Proxy Statement as described in this Current Report on Form 8-K. Nothing in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein. To the contrary, BBAI specifically denies all allegations in the Matters that any additional disclosure was or is required.

Supplemental Disclosures

The additional disclosures in this Current Report on Form 8-K supplement the disclosures contained in the Proxy Statement and should be read in conjunction with the disclosures contained in the Proxy Statement, which should be read in its entirety. To the extent that information set forth in the supplemental disclosures below differs from or updates information contained in the Proxy Statement, the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall supersede or supplement the information contained in the Proxy Statement. Page references in the below disclosures are to the Proxy Statement, and defined terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement.


The section of the Proxy Statement entitled “The Mergers – Opinion of BBAI’s Financial Advisor” is hereby supplemented as follows:

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. BBAI intends such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including without limitation statements regarding the combined company’s future strategy, prospects, market position, industry, and performance, projections regarding Pangiam’s future revenue growth, expected combined financial benefits from the merger, and expected growth in total addressable market are forward-looking statements. Without limited the foregoing, words such as “believe” “may,” “will,” “expect,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “anticipate,” “aim,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “potential,” “continue,” “project,” “target,” “is/are likely to,” “forecast,” “future,” “guidance,” “possible,” “predict,” “seek,” “see,” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, though not all forward-looking statements use these words or expressions. These statements are neither promises nor guarantees, but involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following: failure to consummate the proposed transactions in a timely manner or at all; failure to obtain applicable regulatory and stockholder approvals; failure to satisfy other closing conditions to the proposed transactions; risks that the new businesses will not be integrated successfully or that the combined companies will not realize estimated cost savings; failure to timely and successfully realize anticipated benefits of the combined operations; potential litigation relating to the proposed transactions and disruptions from the proposed transactions that could harm BBAI’s or Pangiam’s business; reductions in customer spending, a slowdown in customer payments and changed in customer requirements; ability to hire and retain key personnel; the potential impact of announcement or consummation of the proposed transactions on relationships with third parties, including clients, employees and competitors; ability to attract new customers and retain existing customers in the manner anticipated; reliance on and integration of information technology systems; changes in legislation or governmental regulations affecting the companies; international, national or local economic, social or political conditions that could adversely affect the companies or their customers; the risk of termination of the Merger Agreement relating to the Mergers; risks that the Mergers could disrupt BBAI’s or Pangiam’s current plans and operations or divert the attention of their respective management or employees from ongoing business operations; the risk of unexpected costs and/or unknown or inestimable liabilities relating to the Mergers; and the risk that BBAI’s or Pangiam’s respective businesses may suffer as a result of uncertainty surrounding the Mergers. These and other important factors discussed under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Proxy Statement and under the caption “Risk Factors” in BBAI’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 filed with the SEC on March 31, 2023, as may be updated from time to time in other filings BBAI makes with the SEC including its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended on September 30, 2023 that was filed with the SEC on November 9, 2023, could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. These statements generally reflect management’s current expectations regarding future events and operating performance and speak only as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Although BBAI believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, BBAI cannot guarantee that future results, levels of activity, performance and events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or will occur. Except as required by law, BBAI undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date on which the statements are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
