Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 of the Prior Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following language:

 

Subscription Agreement

 

On March 29, 2024, Ayar Third Investment Company (“Ayar”) purchased 100,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Convertible Preferred Stock”), from the Issuer in a private placement (the “Private Placement”) pursuant to a subscription agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”), dated March 24, 2024, for an aggregate purchase price of $1,000,000,000.00. The Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into the Issuer’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) and initially convertible into approximately 278,148,643 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate, at an initial conversion price of $3.5952 per share (the “Conversion Price”). The Conversion Price is subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, including in the event of any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization or similar events.

 

 

 

 

Pursuant to the Subscription Agreement, Ayar has agreed, with certain exceptions, that without prior written consent of the Issuer, it will not, for twelve months after the date of the closing of the Private Placement:

 

·Directly or indirectly, offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant to purchase or otherwise transfer or dispose of any shares of Convertible Preferred Stock or any shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the terms thereof; or
·enter into any swap or any other agreement or any transaction that transfers, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, the economic consequence of ownership of the Convertible Preferred Stock or any shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the terms thereof, whether any such swap or transaction is to be settled by delivery of Convertible Preferred Stock, Common Stock or other securities, in cash or otherwise; or
·make any short sale of, grant any option for the purchase of, or enter into any hedging or similar transaction with the same economic effect as a short sale of or the purpose of which is to offset the loss that results from a decline in the market price of the Convertible Preferred Stock or the shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the terms thereof.

 

Subject to certain conditions, these restrictions do not apply to transfers made as a bona fide gift or gifts, including to charitable organizations; to any person or entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with Ayar; to a nominee or custodian of any person or entity to whom a transfer would be permissible under any of the preceding exceptions set forth in this sentence; and pursuant to a bona fide third-party tender offer, merger, consolidation or other similar transaction that is approved by the Issuer’s board of directors and made to all holders of shares of the Issuer’s capital stock involving a change of control.

 

The description of the Subscription Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Subscription Agreement included as Exhibit 7 hereto.

 

Designation of the Convertible Preferred Stock

 

In connection with the closing of the Private Placement, on March 28, 2024, the Issuer filed the Certificate of Designations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of the Issuer (the “Certificate of Designations”).

 

Ranking and Dividend

 

The Convertible Preferred Stock will rank senior to the Common Stock with respect to dividends and distributions of assets upon the Company’s liquidation, dissolution or winding up. The Convertible Preferred Stock will have an initial value of $10,000 per share (the “Initial Value”). Dividends on the Convertible Preferred Stock will be payable in the form of compounded dividends upon each share of Convertible Preferred Stock (such payment in kind, “Compounded Returns”). Dividends will accrue on the Initial Value (as increased for any Compounded Dividends previously compounded thereon) of each share of Convertible Preferred Stock at a rate of 9% per annum and will compound on the basis of quarterly dividend payment dates on each March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 of each year, commencing June 30, 2024.

 

Liquidation Preference

 

Upon a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Issuer, each holder of shares of Convertible Preferred Stock (“Holder”) will be entitled to receive, with respect to each share of then-outstanding Convertible Preferred Stock, out of the assets of the Issuer available for distribution to its stockholders (pari passu with the holders of any liquidation parity securities) an amount in cash equal to the greater of (a) an amount per share of Convertible Preferred Stock as of the date of such liquidation, dissolution or winding up equal to (i) the per share accrued value (as used herein, representing the Initial Value, plus any Compounded Returns, plus accrued dividends from the last dividend payment date to, and including, the relevant date of determination) (the “Accrued Value”) as of the relevant date (as defined in the Certificate of Designations) multiplied by (ii) the relevant percentage (as defined in the Certificate of Designations) (the product of (i) and (ii), the “Minimum Consideration”); and (b) the amount that such Holder would have received with respect to such share of Convertible Preferred Stock based on its Accrued Value if all shares of Convertible Preferred Stock had been converted at their Accrued Value (regardless of whether they were actually converted and without regard to any limitations on convertibility or to whether sufficient shares of Common Stock are available out of the Issuer’s authorized but unissued stock for the purpose of effecting such conversion) into shares of Common Stock on the business day immediately prior to the date of such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

 

 

 

 

Conversion

 

Each share of Convertible Preferred Stock will be convertible, at the option of the respective Holder, from time to time after the initial issue date (the “Initial Issue Date”), and without the payment of additional consideration by the Holder, (a) at any time that the closing price per share of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately preceding the date on which the Holder delivers the relevant notice of conversion is at least $5.50 (subject to certain adjustments), unless the Company otherwise consents to such conversion in its sole discretion, or (b) in all events during certain specified periods relating to a fundamental change or optional redemption by the Issuer, into such number of fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock as is determined by dividing (i) the applicable Accrued Value as of the conversion date by (ii) the applicable Conversion Price in effect as of such conversion date.

 

Voting

 

Except as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Designations or by applicable law or the rules of any stock exchange on which the Company’s securities are listed, on any matter presented to the stockholders of the Issuer for their action or consideration at any meeting of stockholders and on which matter holders of the Common Stock shall be entitled to vote, each Holder will be entitled to the number of votes equal to the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which the aggregate shares of Convertible Preferred Stock held by such Holder are convertible on the record date for determining stockholders entitled to vote on such matter (subject to certain adjustments, but without regard to any limitations on convertibility or to whether sufficient shares of Common Stock are available out of the Issuer’s authorized but unissued stock for the purpose of effecting the conversion). Holders will be entitled to notice of any meeting of stockholders and, except as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Designations or otherwise required by law, to vote together as a single class with the holders of Common Stock and any other class or series of stock entitled to vote thereon. The voting power of Holders is subject to a voting cap per share equal to the quotient of the $10,000 Initial Value and $2.77 (the “Minimum Price” as calculated in accordance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules) (the “Voting Cap”).

 

As long as at least 10% of the aggregate number of shares of the Convertible Preferred Stock issued on the Initial Issue Date remain outstanding, and subject to certain other conditions, Holders will be entitled to a separate class vote with respect to, among other things, amendments to the Issuer’s organizational documents that have an adverse effect on the Convertible Preferred Stock, authorizations or issuances by the Issuer of capital stock of the Issuer that ranks senior or equal to the Convertible Preferred Stock with respect to dividends or distributions on liquidation or the terms of which provide for cash dividends (other than the Common Stock), winding-up and dissolution, and decreases in the number of authorized shares of Convertible Preferred Stock. The Issuer also agreed that as long as Ayar owns at least 50% of the Convertible Preferred Stock issued on the Initial Issue Date, the Issuer will comply with certain debt incurrence covenants in its Credit Agreement, dated as of June 9, 2022, by and among the Company, as the Borrower Representative, the other Borrowers party thereto from time to time, the Lenders and Issuing Banks from time to time party thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, as amended, which agreement may be waived with the sole consent of Ayar.

 

Junior and Parity Securities

 

Subject to certain exceptions, unless all accumulated and unpaid dividends on the Convertible Preferred Stock for all preceding quarterly dividend payment periods have been declared upon all outstanding shares of Convertible Preferred Stock through the most recently completed dividend period, the Issuer (1) may not repurchase, redeem or otherwise acquire shares of any parity stock or any junior stock (which includes the Common Stock), (2) may not declare or pay dividends on any junior stock (which includes the Common Stock) and (3) may not declare or pay dividends on any parity stock, unless the respective amounts of dividends declared on the Convertible Preferred Stock and each such other class or series of dividend parity stock bear the same ratio to each other as all accumulated and unpaid dividends per share of the Convertible Preferred Stock and such class or series of parity stock (subject to their having been declared by the Board out of legally available funds) bear to each other, in proportion to their respective liquidation preferences at the time of declaration.

 

 

 

 

Mandatory Conversion

 

On or after the third anniversary of the Initial Issue Date, if at any time (i) the daily VWAP (as defined in the Certificate of Designations) of the Common Stock has been at least 200% of the Conversion Price for at least twenty (20) trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any thirty (30) consecutive trading days (including the last day of such period) and (ii) certain Common Stock liquidity conditions (as defined in the Certificate of Designations) are satisfied, the Issuer will have the right, exercisable at its election within fifteen (15) business days following completion of the applicable thirty (30) trading day period, to cause all or any portion of the Convertible Preferred Stock to convert into Common Stock. The Issuer will be required to pay an additional amount per share of Convertible Preferred Stock payable in cash, shares of Common Stock valued based on a five-day average daily VWAP (with the number of shares of Common Stock rounded up to the nearest whole share) or a combination thereof in respect of such conversion equal to the greater of (x) the difference between (i) the Minimum Consideration and (ii) the value of the shares of Common Stock delivered upon mandatory conversion thereof and (y) zero.

 

Fundamental Change

 

Upon a “fundamental change” (as defined in the Certificate of Designations), the Holders will be entitled, on the fundamental change repurchase date specified by the Company, to receive an amount equal to the greater of (a) the Minimum Consideration and (b) an amount equal to the value that such Holder would have received if it had converted its shares of Convertible Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock on the business day immediately before the fundamental change repurchase date. The fundamental change repurchase price may be paid in cash, shares of Common Stock (or other securities to be received by a holder of Common Stock in such Fundamental Change) valued based on a five-day average daily VWAP (with the number of shares of Common Stock rounded up to the nearest whole share), or a combination thereof, at the Issuer’s election. The Issuer may not elect to deliver shares of its Common Stock (or other securities to be received by a holder of Common Stock in such Fundamental Change) in partial or full satisfaction of the fundamental change repurchase price, if certain Common Stock liquidity conditions (as defined in the Certificate of Designations) are not satisfied.

 

Optional Redemption

 

On or after the fifth anniversary of the Initial Issue Date, the Issuer may redeem all or any portion of the Convertible Preferred Stock at a redemption price per share equal to the greater of (a) the Minimum Consideration and (b) an amount equal to the value (calculated based on a twenty (20)-day average daily VWAP) of the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion at the Conversion Price on such redemption date. Such redemption price may be paid in cash, shares of Common Stock valued based on a twenty (20)-day average daily VWAP (with the number of shares of Common Stock rounded up to the nearest whole share), or a combination thereof, at the Issuer’s election. The Issuer may not pay any portion of such redemption price in shares of Common Stock if the Common Stock liquidity conditions (as defined in the Certificate of Designations) are not satisfied.

 

Nasdaq Rules

 

The Certificate of Designations provides that the number of shares of Common Stock deliverable upon conversion, redemption or repurchase of the Convertible Preferred Stock will be limited as required by applicable Nasdaq listing rules, unless the Issuer shall have obtained any required stockholder approval. The Issuer and Ayar have agreed to cooperate reasonably to obtain, and Ayar has agreed to consent in respect of such stockholder approval no later than 18 months following the closing of the Private Placement. The Convertible Preferred Stock is initially convertible into approximately 278,148,643 shares of Common Stock.

 

 

 

 

Remedies for Nonpayment

 

The Certificate of Designations provides that the dividend rate described above will be increased to a rate not exceeding 15% per annum upon certain events of noncompliance relating to a failure by the Issuer to deliver consideration due in connection with a fundamental change or optional redemption.

 

The description of the Certificate of Designations does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Certificate of Designations included as Exhibit 8 hereto.
