Recitals

WHEREAS, the Company was incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”);

WHEREAS, the Company has filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a draft registration statement on Form S-1 (such registration statement, as may be amended from time to time, including to reflect changes in terms, the “Registration Statement”) for its initial public offering (“IPO”) of Class A ordinary shares of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Share(s)”);

WHEREAS, following the closing of the IPO (the “IPO Closing”), the Company will seek to identify and consummate a Business Combination; and

WHEREAS, the parties hereto wish to enter into this Agreement, pursuant to which immediately prior to the closing of the Company’s initial Business Combination (the “Business Combination Closing”), the Company shall issue and sell, and the Purchaser shall purchase, on a private placement basis, up to the number of Class A Shares determined pursuant to Section 1(a)(i) hereof (the “Forward Purchase Securities”) on the terms and conditions set forth herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, representations, warranties and the mutual covenants contained in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt, sufficiency and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

Agreement

 

 1.

Sale and Purchase.

 

 (a)

Forward Purchase Securities.

 

 (i)

The Company shall issue and sell to the Purchaser, and the Purchaser shall purchase from the Company, up to the number of Forward Purchase Securities set forth on the Purchaser’s signature page to this Agreement next to the line item “Maximum Number of Forward Purchase Securities,” for an aggregate purchase price of $10.00 multiplied by the number of Forward Purchase Securities issued and sold hereunder (the “FPS Purchase Price”). The amounts actually sold pursuant to this Section 1(a)(i) shall be determined solely by the Company. For the avoidance of doubt, the Company is not obligated to issue or sell any Forward Purchase Securities.

 

1


 (ii)

The Company shall require the Purchaser to purchase the Forward Purchase Securities pursuant to Section 1(a)(i) hereof by delivering notice (the “Company Notice”) to the Purchaser, at least five (5) Business Days before the funding of the FPS Purchase Price to an account specified by the Company, specifying the anticipated date of the Business Combination Closing, the number of Forward Purchase Securities being sold by the Company to the Purchaser and each Transferee (as defined in Section 4(d)) pursuant hereto (which will not exceed the number of Forward Purchase Securities that Purchaser has agreed to purchase pursuant to Section 1(a)(i)), the aggregate purchase price for the Forward Purchase Securities (the “FPS Purchase Price”) to be purchased by the Purchaser and instructions for wiring the FPS Purchase Price to an account designated by the Company. At least two (2) Business Days before the anticipated date of the Business Combination Closing specified in the Company Notice, the Purchaser shall deliver the FPS Purchase Price in cash via wire transfer to the account specified in such notice, to be held in escrow pending the Business Combination Closing. If the Business Combination Closing does not occur within thirty (30) days after the Purchaser delivers the FPS Purchase Price to such account, the Company shall return to the Purchaser the FPS Purchase Price, provided that the return of the FPS Purchase Price placed in escrow shall not terminate this Agreement or otherwise relieve either party of any of its obligations hereunder and the Company may provide a subsequent Company Notice pursuant to this Section 1(a)(ii). For the purposes of this Agreement, “Business Day” means any day, other than a Saturday or a Sunday, that is neither a legal holiday nor a day on which banking institutions are generally authorized or required by law or regulation to close in the City of New York, New York.

 

 (iii)

The closing of the sale of the Forward Purchase Securities (the “FPS Closing”) shall be held on the same date and immediately prior to the Business Combination Closing (such date being referred to as the “Closing Date”); provided, that at the Purchaser’s request, the FPS Closing may occur up to seven (7) days prior the Business Combination Closing. At the FPS Closing, the Company will issue to the Purchaser the number of Forward Purchase Securities each registered in the name of the respective Purchaser.

 

 (iv)

Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the Purchaser does not have sufficient capital to fulfill its commitments to purchase some or all of the Forward Purchase Securities pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, Dragoneer Global Fund II, L.P. (“DGF II”), Dragoneer Opportunities Fund V, L.P. (“DOF V”) or any of their affiliates shall be obligated to contribute such amounts to the Purchaser in order for the Purchaser to make such purchase. Provided further that Dragoneer Investment Group, LLC (the “Investment Manager”) may assign the commitments under this section to any other funds managed by the Investment Manager as it determines in its sole discretion.

 (b)

Delivery of Forward Purchase Securities.

 

 (i)

The Company shall register the Purchaser as the owner of the number of Forward Purchase Securities with the Company’s transfer agent by book entry on or promptly after (but in no event more than two (2) Business Days after) the FPS Closing Date.

 

 (ii)

Each book entry for the Forward Purchase Securities shall contain a notation, and each certificate (if any) evidencing the Forward Purchase Securities shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend, in substantially the following form:

 

   

“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE OR OTHER JURISDICTION, AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED IN VIOLATION OF SUCH ACT AND LAWS.”

 

 (c)

Legend Removal. If the Forward Purchase Securities are eligible to be sold without restriction under, and without the Company being in compliance with the current public information requirements of, Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or there is an effective registration statement covering the resale of the Forward Purchase Securities (and the Purchaser provides the Company with a written undertaking to sell its Forward Purchase Securities only in accordance with the plan of distribution contained in such registration statement and only if the Purchaser has not been informed that the prospectus in such registration statement is not current or the registration statement is no longer effective), then at the Purchaser’s request, the Company will cause the Company’s transfer agent to remove the legend set forth in Section 1(b)(ii). In connection therewith, if required by the Company’s transfer agent, the Company will promptly cause an opinion of counsel to be delivered to and maintained with its transfer agent, together with any other authorizations, certificates and directions required by the transfer agent that authorize and direct the transfer agent to transfer such Forward Purchase Securities without any such legend; provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will not be required to deliver any such opinion, authorization, certificate or direction if it reasonably believes that removal of the legend could result in or facilitate transfers of Forward Purchase Securities in violation of applicable law.

 

 (d)

Registration Rights. The Purchaser shall have registration rights as set forth on Exhibit A (the “Registration Rights”).

 2.

Representations and Warranties of the Purchaser. The Purchaser represents and warrants to the Company as follows, as of the date hereof:

 

 (a)

Restricted Securities. The Purchaser understands that the offer and sale of the Forward Purchase Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act that depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of the Purchaser’s representations as expressed herein. The Purchaser understands that the Forward Purchase Securities are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, the Purchaser must hold the Forward Purchase Securities indefinitely unless they are registered with the SEC and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company has no obligation to register or qualify the Forward Purchase Securities, or any Class A Shares into which they may be converted into or exercised for, for resale, except pursuant to the Registration Rights. The Purchaser further acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including, but not limited to, the time and manner of sale, the holding period for the Forward Purchase Securities, and on requirements relating to the Company that are outside of the Purchaser’s control, and which the Company is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy. The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company filed the Registration Statement for its proposed IPO to the SEC for review. The Purchaser understands that the offering to the Purchaser of the Forward Purchase Securities is not, and is not intended to be, part of the IPO, and that the Purchaser will not be able to rely on the protection of Section 11 of the Securities Act with respect to such Forward Purchase Securities.

 

 (b)

No General Solicitation. Neither the Purchaser, nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders or partners, has either directly or indirectly, including, through a broker or finder (i) to its knowledge, engaged in any general solicitation, or (ii) published any advertisement in connection with the offer and sale of the Forward Purchase Securities.

 

 (c)

No Other Representations and Warranties; Non-Reliance. Except for the specific representations and warranties contained in this Section 2 and in any certificate or agreement delivered pursuant hereto, none of the Purchaser nor any person acting on behalf of the Purchaser nor any of the Purchaser’s affiliates (the “Purchaser Parties”) has made, makes or shall be deemed to make any other express or implied representation or warranty with respect to the Purchaser and this offering, and the Purchaser Parties disclaim any such representation or warranty. Except for the specific representations and warranties expressly made by the Company in Section 3 of this Agreement and in any certificate or agreement delivered pursuant hereto, the Purchaser Parties specifically disclaim that they are relying upon any other representations or warranties that may have been made by the Company.

Exhibit A

Registration Rights

 

 1.

The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to (i) within thirty (30) days after the Business Combination Closing, file a registration statement for a secondary offering (including any successor registration statement covering the resale of the Registrable Securities, a “Resale Shelf”) of (x) the Class A Shares comprising the Forward Purchase Securities, (y) any other Class A Shares that may be acquired by the Purchaser after the date of this Agreement, including any time after the Business Combination Closing and (z) any other equity security of the Company issued or issuable with respect to the securities referred to in clauses (x) and (y) by way of a share capitalization or share split or in connection with a combination of shares, recapitalization, merger, consolidation or reorganization (collectively, the “Registrable Securities”) for an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 of the Securities Act registering the resale of the Registrable Securities from time to time; provided, that if Form S-3 is unavailable for such a registration, the Company shall register the resale of the Registrable Securities on another appropriate form and undertake to register the Registrable Securities on Form S-3 as soon as such form is available, (ii) cause the Resale Shelf to be declared effective under the Securities Act promptly thereafter, but in no event later than ninety (90) days after the closing of the Business Combination and (iii) maintain the effectiveness of such Resale Shelf with respect to the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities and to ensure the Resale Shelf does not contain a material omission or misstatement, including by way of amendment or other update, as required, until the earlier of (A) the date on which the Purchaser ceases to hold Registrable Securities covered by such Resale Shelf and (B) the date all of the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities covered by the Resale Shelf can be sold publicly without restriction or limitation under Rule 144 under the Securities Act and without the requirement to be in compliance with Rule 144(c)(1) under the Securities Act; and provided, further, with respect to Registrable Securities acquired after the Business Combination Closing, the Company shall only be obligated to amend the Resale Shelf or file a new registration statement that will constitute a Resale Shelf to include such Registrable Securities on two (2) occasions, each upon the written request of the Purchaser with respect to at least 100,000 Registrable Securities.

 

 2.

In the event the Company is prohibited by applicable rule, regulation or interpretation by the staff (“Staff”) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) from registering all of the Registrable Securities on the Resale Shelf or the Staff requires that the Purchaser be specifically identified as an “underwriter” in order to permit such registration statement to become effective, and the Purchaser does not consent in writing to being so named as an underwriter in such registration statement, the Company agrees to promptly (i) inform each of the holders thereof and use its reasonable best efforts to file amendments to the Resale Shelf as required by the SEC and/or (ii) withdraw the Resale Shelf and file a new registration statement (a “New Registration Statement”), on Form S-3, or if Form S-3 is not then available to the Company for such registration statement, on such other form available to register for resale the Registrable Securities as a secondary offering; the number of Registrable Securities to be registered on the Resale Shelf will be reduced on a pro rata basis among all the holders of Registrable Securities


 to be so included, unless otherwise required by the Staff, so that the number of Registrable Securities to be registered is permitted by Staff and the Purchaser is not required to be named as an “underwriter”; provided, that any Registrable Securities not registered due to this paragraph 2 shall thereafter as soon as allowed by the SEC guidance be registered to the extent the prohibition no longer is applicable.

 

 3.

If at any time the Company proposes to file a registration statement (a “Registration Statement”) on its own behalf, or on behalf of any other Persons who have registration rights (“Other Holders”), relating to an underwritten offering of ordinary shares, or engage in an Underwritten Shelf Takedown (as defined below) off an existing registration statement (a “Company Offering”), then the Company will provide the Purchaser with notice in writing (an “Offer Notice”) at least five (5) Business Days prior to such filing, which Offer Notice will offer to include in the Registration Statement, the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities. Within five (5) Business Days (or, in the case of an Offer Notice delivered to the Purchaser in connection with an Underwritten Shelf Takedown, within three (3) Business Days) after receiving the Offer Notice, a Purchaser may make a written request to the Company to include some or all of the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities in the Registration Statement. If the underwriter(s) for any Company Offering advise the Company that marketing factors require a limitation on the number of securities that may be included in the Company Offering, the number of securities to be so included shall be allocated as follows: (i) first, to the Company and the Other Holders, if any; and (ii) second, to the requesting Purchaser.

 

 4.

At any time during which the Company has an effective Resale Shelf with respect to the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities, the Purchaser may make a written request (which request shall specify the intended method of disposition thereof) (a “Shelf Takedown Request”) to the Company to effect a sale, of all or a portion of the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities that are covered by the Resale Shelf, and the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to file, to the extent required by applicable law or regulation, a prospectus supplement (a “Shelf Takedown Prospectus Supplement”) for such purpose as soon as reasonably practicable following receipt of a Shelf Takedown Request. The Purchaser may request that any such sale be conducted as an underwritten public offering (an “Underwritten Shelf Takedown”).

 

 5.

The determination of whether any offering of Registrable Securities pursuant to the Resale Shelf or a Shelf Takedown Prospectus Supplement will be an Underwritten Shelf Takedown shall be made in the sole discretion of the Purchaser(s), after consultation with the Company, and the Purchaser(s) shall have the right, after consultation with the Company, to determine the plan of distribution, including the price at which the Registrable Securities are to be sold and the underwriting commissions, discounts and fees. The Purchaser(s) shall select the investment banker or bankers and managers to administer the offering, including the lead managing underwriter (provided that such investment banker or bankers and managers shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company).


 6.

In connection with any Underwritten Shelf Takedown, the Company shall enter into such customary agreements and take all such other actions in connection therewith (including those requested by the Purchaser) in order to facilitate the disposition of such Registrable Securities as are reasonably necessary or required, and in such connection enter into a customary underwriting agreement that provides for customary opinions, comfort letters and officer’s certificates and other customary deliverables.

 

 7.

The Company shall pay all fees and expenses incident to the performance of or compliance with its obligation to prepare, file and maintain the Resale Shelf (including the fees of its counsel and accountants). The Company shall also pay all Registration Expenses. For purposes of this paragraph 7, “Registration Expenses” shall mean the out-of-pocket expenses of a Company Offering or an Underwritten Shelf Takedown, including, without limitation, the following: (i) all registration, qualification and filing fees (including fees with respect to filings required to be made with FINRA) and any securities exchange on which the Registrable Securities are then listed; (ii) fees and expenses of compliance with securities or blue sky laws (including reasonable fees and disbursements of one counsel to the underwriters in connection with blue sky qualifications of the Registrable Securities); (iii) printing, messenger, telephone and delivery expenses; (iv) reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for the Company; (v) reasonable fees and disbursements of all independent registered public accountants of the Company incurred specifically in connection with such Underwritten Shelf Takedown; (vi) reasonable fees and expenses of one legal counsel selected by the Purchaser and (vii) and, for the avoidance of doubt, the Company also shall pay all of its internal expenses (including, without limitation, all salaries and expenses of its officers and employees performing legal or accounting duties), the expense of any annual audit or quarterly review, the expense of any liability insurance and the expenses and fees for listing the securities to be registered on each securities exchange on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed; provided, that it is understood and agreed that the Company shall not be responsible for any underwriting fees, discounts, selling commissions, underwriter expenses and share transfer taxes relating to the registration and sale of the Purchaser’s Registrable Securities.

 

 8.

The Company may suspend the use of a prospectus included in the Resale Shelf by furnishing to the Purchaser a written notice (“Suspension Notice”) stating that in the good faith judgment of the Company, it would be either (i) prohibited by the Company’s insider trading policy (as if the Purchaser were covered by such policy) or (ii) materially detrimental to the Company and its shareholders for such prospectus to be used at such time. The Company’s right to suspend the use of such prospectus under clause (ii) of the preceding sentence may be exercised for a period of not more than sixty (60) days after the date of such notice to the Purchaser; provided such period may be extended for an additional thirty (30) days with the consent of a majority-in-interest of the holders of Registrable Securities covered by the Resale Shelf; provided further, that such right to suspend the use of a prospectus shall be exercised by the Company not more than once in any twelve (12) month period. A holder of Registrable Securities shall not effect any sales of Registrable Securities pursuant to the Resale Shelf at any time after it has received a Suspension Notice from the Company and prior to receipt of an End of Suspension Notice (as defined below). The holders may recommence effecting sales of the Registrable Securities pursuant to the Resale Shelf following further written notice to such effect (an “End of Suspension Notice”) from the Company to the holders. The Company shall act in good faith to permit any suspension period contemplated by this paragraph to be concluded as promptly as reasonably practicable.


 9.

The Purchaser agrees that, except as required by applicable law, the Purchaser shall treat as confidential the receipt of any Suspension Notice (provided that in no event shall such notice contain any material nonpublic information of the Company) hereunder and shall not disclose or use the information contained in such Suspension Notice without the prior written consent of the Company until such time as the information contained therein is or becomes public, other than as a result of disclosure by a holder of Registrable Securities in breach of the terms of this Agreement.

 

 10.

The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser, its directors and officers, partners, members, managers, affiliates, employees, agents, and representatives of the Purchaser and each person, if any, who controls the Purchaser within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the officers, directors, partners, members, managers, agents, affiliates, employees and investment advisers of each such controlling person (collectively, “Indemnified Persons”), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, from and against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities, joint or several, costs (including reasonable costs of preparation and reasonable attorneys’ fees) and expenses, judgments, fines, penalties, interest, settlements or other amounts arising from any and all claims, demands, actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, in which any Indemnified Person may be involved, or is threatened to be involved, as a party or otherwise, under the Securities Act or otherwise (collectively, “Losses”), promptly as incurred, arising out of, based upon or resulting from any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Resale Shelf (or any amendment or supplement thereto), the related prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or arise out of, are based upon or resulting from the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable in any such case or to any Indemnified Person to the extent, but only to the extent, that any such Loss arises out of, is based upon or results from an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission or so made in reliance upon or in conformity with information furnished by or on behalf of such Indemnified Person in writing specifically for use in the preparation of the Resale Shelf, the related prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such Indemnified Person, and shall survive the transfer of such securities by the Purchaser or any termination of this Agreement.

 

 11.

The Company’s obligation under paragraph (1) of this Exhibit A is subject to the Purchaser furnishing to the Company in writing such information as the Company reasonably requests for use in connection with the Resale Shelf, the related prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto. The Purchaser shall severally, and not jointly with any other selling stockholder named in the Resale Shelf, indemnify the Company, its officers, directors, managers, employees, agents and representatives, and each person


 who controls the Company (within the meaning of the Securities Act) against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses resulting from any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in the Resale Shelf, the related prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto or any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, but only to the extent that such untrue statement or omission is contained in any information so furnished in writing by the Purchaser expressly for inclusion in such document; provided that the obligation to indemnify shall be individual, not joint and several, for the Purchaser and shall be limited to the net amount of proceeds received by the Purchaser from the sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to the Resale Shelf.

 

 12.

The Company shall cooperate with the Purchaser, to the extent the Registrable Securities become freely tradable, to facilitate the timely preparation and delivery of certificates (not bearing any restrictive legend) representing the Registrable Securities to be offered pursuant to a Resale Shelf and enable such certificates to be in such denominations or amounts, as the case may be, as the Purchaser may reasonably request and registered in such names as the Purchaser may request.

 

 13.

If requested by the Purchaser, the Company shall as soon as practicable, subject to any Suspension Notice, (i) incorporate in a prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment such information as the Purchaser reasonably requests to be included therein relating to the sale and distribution of Registrable Securities, including, without limitation, information with respect to the number of Registrable Securities being offered or sold, the purchase price being paid therefor and any other terms of the offering of the Registrable Securities to be sold in such offering; (ii) make all required filings of such prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment after being notified of the matters to be incorporated in such prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment; and (iii) supplement or make amendments to any Registration Statement if reasonably requested by the Purchaser holding any Registrable Securities.

 

 14.

As long as the Purchaser shall own Registrable Securities, the Company, at all times while it shall be reporting under the Exchange Act shall file timely (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to Sections 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act and shall promptly furnish the Purchaser with true and complete copies of all such filings, unless filed through the SEC’s EDGAR system. The Company further covenants that it shall take such further action as the Purchaser may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time, to enable the Purchaser to sell the Class A Shares held by the Purchaser without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act, including providing any legal opinions. Upon the request of the Purchaser, the Company shall deliver to the Purchaser a written certification of a duly authorized officer as to whether it has complied with such requirements.

 

 15.

The rights, duties and obligations of the Purchaser under this Exhibit A may be assigned or delegated by the Purchaser in conjunction with and to the extent of any transfer or assignment of Registrable Securities by the Purchaser to any transferee or assignee.


 16.

Without limitation of the foregoing, in the event that the Company enters into a registration rights agreement with the Purchaser at or prior to the consummation of the Business Combination, the Purchaser will be entitled to the registration rights agreed to at the time of the Business Combination, which may replace the terms set forth on this Exhibit A.
