EXPLANATORY NOTE

On July 22, 2021, Taboola.com Ltd. (“Taboola”) entered into that certain Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and among Taboola, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Taboola (“Buyer”),  Shop Management, LLC and, for certain specified sections of the Purchase Agreement, Taboola, pursuant to which Buyer will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Shop Holding Corporation for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $800 million including retention incentives, subject to customary purchase price adjustments at closing (the “Purchase Price”) and the other terms and conditions described in the Purchase Agreement (the “Transaction”).  Approximately $240 million of the Purchase Price will be paid pursuant to the issuance of ordinary shares of Taboola. The exact number of ordinary shares issued will depend on the volume weighted average price of Taboola’s stock over the five business days ending three business days prior to the closing of the Transaction. Approximately $560 million of the Purchase Price will be paid in cash, using approximately $260 million from cash on hand and $300 million from committed debt financing (as detailed below).

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants.  The closing of the Transaction is expected to occur in the third quarter of 2021, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals and satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

In connection with the Purchase Agreement, Taboola entered into a commitment letter (the “Commitment Letter”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and Credit Suisse (collectively, the “Commitment Parties”) pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Commitment Letter, the Commitment Parties have committed to arrange and provide to Buyer, as the borrower, a senior secured term loan “B” credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $300 million (the “Term Loan Facility”). The Term Loan Facility will mature on the seventh anniversary of initial incurrence thereof and amortize in quarterly installments equal to 0.25% of the initial principal amount thereof. Interest in respect of the Term Loan Facility will be determined based on a margin to LIBOR or an alternate base rate, in each case, to be set in the syndication of the Term Loan Facility. The Term Loan Facility will contain voluntary and mandatory prepayment provisions, representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants and events of default, in each case that are customary for facilities of the type. The Term Loan Facility will not contain any financial maintenance covenants.

The information in the attached Exhibit 99.1 is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing made by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as otherwise set forth herein or as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
