Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

General

On June 9, 2021, Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp. II, a Delaware corporation (“Kensington”), Wallbox B.V., a private company with limited liability incorporated under the Laws of the Netherlands (besloten vennootschap met beperkte aansprakelijkheid and which will be converted into a public limited liability company (naamloze vennootschap) prior to the effectuation of the Exchanges (as defined below)) (“Holdco”), Orion Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco (“Merger Sub”), and Wallbox Chargers, S.L., a Spanish limited liability company (sociedad limitada) (the “Company”), entered into a business combination agreement (the “Business Combination Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, Kensington and the Company will enter into a business combination. The terms of the Business Combination Agreement, which contains customary representations and warranties, covenants, closing conditions, and other terms relating to the Exchanges (as defined below), the Merger (as defined below) and the other transactions contemplated thereby, are summarized below. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Current Report on Form 8-K have the meanings given to them in the Business Combination Agreement.

As a result of the business combination, Kensington will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdco. A total of 178,750,000 Ordinary Shares will be issued (or reserved for issuance) in connection with the business combination in accordance with the Business Combination Agreement.

The Business Combination Agreement

Structure of the Business Combination

The business combination is structured as follows:

 

 (a)

Prior to the Exchange Effective Time, Holdco will (i) change its legal form from a private company with limited liability (besloten vennootschap met beperkte aansprakelijkheid) to a public limited liability company (naamloze vennootschap) and (ii) amend and restate the Holdco Organizational Documents such that the Holdco Organizational Documents are in a form to be reasonably determined by the Company in consultation with Kensington, which Holdco Organizational Documents will remain in effect through the Merger Effective Time and thereafter will be the organizational documents of Holdco. The Holdco Organization Documents are anticipated to provide, among other things, that each Holdco Ordinary A Share will have one vote (1) per share and each Holdco Ordinary B Share will have ten (10) votes per share;

 

 (b)

Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement (as defined below): (i) each holder of Company Convertible Notes will convert its Company Convertible Notes into Company Ordinary Shares (the “Convert Exchange”); and (ii) following the Convert Exchange, each holder of Company Ordinary Shares will contribute its Company Ordinary Shares to Holdco in exchange for Holdco Ordinary Shares and the Company will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdco (the “Ordinary Exchange,” and together with the Convert Exchange, the “Exchanges”);

 

 (c)

Following the Exchanges, pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement: (i) Merger Sub will merge with and into Kensington (the “Merger”) with Kensington as the surviving corporation, and Kensington will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdco; (ii) as a result of the Merger, all of the Kensington Common Stock of the Surviving Corporation (other than Excluded Shares) will be converted into the right to receive New Kensington Common Stock, which will then be exchanged for Holdco Ordinary A Shares;

 

 (d)

Contemporaneously with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, certain investors have entered into certain subscription agreements, pursuant to which such investors will purchase Holdco Ordinary Shares at a purchase price of $10.00 per share in a private placement to be consummated immediately prior to the consummation of the Transactions; and

 

2


 (e)

Concurrently with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, certain employees of the Company entered into a lock-up agreement (the “Employee Lock-Up Agreement”) with Kensington, pursuant to which such employees agreed to restrictions on the transferability of Holdco securities for a period of up to one year following the consummation of the Transactions, subject to certain exceptions set forth therein.

Conversion of Securities

At the effective time of the Exchanges (the “Exchange Effective Time”):

 

 (a)

(i) each issued Company Ordinary Share will be contributed in kind to Holdco, (ii) Holdco will issue to each holder of Company Ordinary Shares (including the Company Ordinary Shares issued upon the conversion of the Company Convertible Notes) the number of Holdco Ordinary A Shares and/or Holdco Ordinary B Shares, as applicable, calculated in accordance with the Exchange Ratio and (iii) each holder of Company Ordinary Shares (including the Company Ordinary Shares issued upon the conversion of the Company Convertible Notes) will cease to be the holder of such Company Ordinary Shares;

 

 (b)

each Company Option that is outstanding immediately prior to the Exchange Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, will be converted at the Exchange Effective Time into an option to purchase a number of shares of the applicable class of Holdco Ordinary Shares (such option, a “Holdco Option”) equal to the product (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of (x) the number of shares of the applicable class of Company Ordinary Shares subject to such Company Option immediately prior to the Exchange Effective Time and (y) the Exchange Ratio, at an exercise price per share (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) equal to (A) the exercise price per share of such Company Option immediately prior to the Exchange Effective Time divided by (B) the Exchange Ratio; and

 

 (c)

The Company Ordinary Shares held by Enric Asunción and Eduard Castañeda are expected to be exchanged for “high vote” Holdco Ordinary Shares that have ten (10) votes per share. Upon transfer to third parties, these shares will have one (1) vote per share.

At the effective time of the Merger (the “Merger Effective Time”), which will be immediately after the Exchange Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Kensington, Merger Sub, the Company or the holders of any of the Company’s securities:

 

 (a)

each share of Kensington Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger Effective Time (other than the Excluded Shares) will be converted into and become one share of New Kensington Common Stock, and each such share of New Kensington Common Stock will immediately thereafter be exchanged for Holdco Shares, and Holdco will issue one Holdco Ordinary A Share for each share of New Kensington Common Stock exchanged;

 

 (b)

all shares of Kensington Common Stock that are owned by Kensington as treasury stock, and any shares of Kensington Common Stock owned by Holdco, Merger Sub, the Company or any other direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco (collectively, the “Excluded Shares”) will be automatically cancelled and retired, and will cease to exist and no consideration will be delivered in exchange therefor; and

 

 (c)

each Kensington Warrant that is outstanding immediately prior to the Merger Effective Time will, pursuant to the Kensington Warrant Agreement, cease to represent a right to acquire the number of shares of Kensington Class A Common Stock set forth in such Kensington Warrant and will be

 

3


 converted in accordance with the terms of the Kensington Warrant Agreement, at the Merger Effective Time, into a right to acquire one Holdco Ordinary A Share (a “Holdco Warrant”) on substantially the same terms as were in effect immediately prior to the Merger Effective Time under the terms of the Kensington Warrant Agreement and thereupon be assumed by Holdco.

Exchange Ratio” means the quotient obtained by dividing (A) (x) $1,400,000,000, divided by (y) the number of Fully-Diluted Company Shares by (B) $10.

Proxy Statement

As promptly as practicable, after the date of the Business Combination Agreement and receipt of the PCAOB Audited Financials, (a) Kensington will prepare and file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a proxy statement (as amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Proxy Statement”) to be sent to the Kensington Stockholders relating to the Kensington Stockholders’ Meeting to be held to consider approval and adoption of (A) the Business Combination Agreement and the Merger, (B) the issuance of New Kensington Common Stock as contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement, (C) the amendment of the Kensington Organizational Documents and (D) any other proposals the parties deem necessary to effectuate the Exchanges, the Merger and the other Transactions (collectively, the “Kensington Proposals”) and (b) Holdco, the Company and Kensington will prepare, and Holdco will file with the SEC a registration statement on Form F-4 (the “F-4 Registration Statement”), in which the Proxy Statement will be included as a prospectus, in connection with the registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), of the Holdco Ordinary A Shares and Holdco Warrants to be issued in the Merger.

Stock Exchange Listing

The Company, Holdco and Kensington will use their respective reasonable best efforts to cause the Holdco Ordinary A Shares and Holdco Warrants issuable in the Merger and the Holdco Ordinary A Shares that will become issuable upon the exercise of the Holdco Warrants to be approved for listing on The New York Stock Exchange prior to Closing. The Company, Holdco and Kensington will use their respective reasonable best efforts to cause the Kensington Units, Kensington Class A Common Stock and Kensington Warrants to be delisted from The New York Stock Exchange (or be succeeded by the respective Holdco securities) and to terminate Kensington’s registration with the SEC (or be succeeded by Holdco) as of the Closing Date or as soon as practicable thereafter.

Closing

The Closing will occur as promptly as practicable, but in no event later than three Business Days following the satisfaction or waiver of all of the closing conditions.

Representations, Warranties and Covenants

The Business Combination Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of (a) the Company, (b) Kensington and (c) Holdco and Merger Sub relating to, among other things, their ability to enter into the Business Combination Agreement and their outstanding capitalization. Kensington has agreed to customary “no shop” obligations subject to a customary “fiduciary out”.

A copy of the Business Combination Agreement is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Business Combination Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Business Combination Agreement filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Business Combination Agreement is included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Kensington, the Company or the other parties thereto. In particular, the assertions embodied in representations and warranties by Kensington, the Company and Holdco and Merger Sub contained in the Business Combination Agreement are qualified by information in the disclosure schedules provided by the parties in connection with the signing of the Business Combination Agreement. These disclosure schedules contain information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations and warranties set forth in the Business Combination Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Business Combination Agreement were used for the purpose of allocating risk between the parties, rather than establishing matters as facts. Accordingly, investors and security holders should not rely on the representations and warranties in the Business Combination Agreement as characterizations of the actual state of facts about Kensington, the Company, Holdco or Merger Sub.

Exchange Agreement

Concurrently with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, Holdco, the Company and the holders of the Company Ordinary Shares and the holders of the Company Convertible Notes (such holders collectively, the “Company Shareholders”) entered into a Contribution and Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”), under which Kensington is a third-party beneficiary. Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, (i) each holder of Company Convertible Notes will, prior to the Exchange Effective Time, convert its Company Convertible Notes into Company Ordinary Shares (the “Convert Exchange”); and (ii) following the Convert Exchange, each holder of Company Ordinary Shares will contribute its Company Ordinary Shares to Holdco in exchange for Holdco Ordinary Shares in accordance with the Exchange Ratio and the Company will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdco (the “Ordinary Exchange,” and together with the Convert Exchanges, the “Exchanges”).

The foregoing description of the Exchange Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Exchange Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated herein by reference.

Sponsor Support Agreement

the meeting of Kensington stockholders in connection with the business combination, including approval of the Business Combination Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby; and (ii) the Sponsor has waived any adjustment to the conversion ratio set forth in the governing documents of Kensington or any other anti-dilution or similar protection with respect to the shares of Kensington’s Class B common stock that may result from the transactions contemplated by the business combination.

The foregoing description of the Sponsor Support Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sponsor Support Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated herein by reference.

Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement

Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, at the Closing, Kensington, Holdco, Kensington Capital Sponsor II LLC (the “Original Holder”) and the shareholders of the Company (the “New Holders” and, collectively with the Original Holder, the “Holders”) will enter into a Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement (the “Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement”) substantially in the form set forth in the Business Combination Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement, Holdco will be obligated to file a registration statement to register the resale of certain securities of Holdco held by the Holders. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement and subject to certain requirements and customary conditions, including with regard to the number of demand rights that may be exercised, the Holders may demand at any time or from time to time, that Kensington file a registration statement on Form F-3 (or on Form F-1 if Form F-3 is not available) to register the securities of Holdco held by such Holders. The Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement also provides the Holders with “piggy-back” registration rights, subject to certain requirements and customary conditions.

The securities held by each of the New Holders and the Original Holder will be locked-up for one year following the Closing, subject to earlier release if (i) the reported last sale price of Holdco’s ordinary shares equals or exceeds $12.00 per share (as adjusted for share splits, share dividends, reorganizations, recapitalizations and the like) for any 20 trading days within any 30-trading day period commencing at least 150 days after the Closing or (ii) if Holdco consummates a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction after the Closing which results in all of Holdco’s shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.

The foregoing description of the Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated herein by reference.

Subscription Agreements

In connection with the execution of the Business Combination Agreement, effective as of June 9, 2021, Holdco and Kensington entered into separate subscription agreements (each, a “Subscription Agreement”) with a number of investors (each a “Subscriber”), pursuant to which the Subscribers agreed to purchase, and Holdco agreed to issue to the Subscribers, an aggregate of 10,000,000 Holdco Ordinary A Shares (the “PIPE Shares”), for a purchase price of $10.00 per share and an aggregate purchase price of $100 million, in a private placement (the “PIPE”). Certain officers and directors of Kensington and their affiliates have subscribed for approximately 2,500,000 PIPE Shares pursuant to the Subscription Agreements.

The closing of the sale of the PIPE Shares pursuant to the Subscription Agreement is contingent upon, among other customary closing conditions, the substantially concurrent consummation of the Transactions. The purpose of the PIPE is to raise additional capital for use by the combined company following the Closing.

Pursuant to the Subscription Agreements, Holdco agreed, among other things, that, within 30 calendar days after the consummation of the Transactions (the “Filing Deadline”), Holdco will file with the SEC (at Holdco’s sole cost and expense) a registration statement registering the resale of the PIPE Shares (the “Resale Registration Statement”), and Holdco will use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Resale Registration Statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof.

Important Information and Where to Find It

In connection with the Transactions, Holdco intends to file a registration statement on Form F-4, including a proxy statement/prospectus (the “Registration Statement”), with the SEC, which will include a preliminary proxy statement to be distributed to holders of Kensington’s common stock in connection with Kensington’s solicitation of proxies for the vote by Kensington’s stockholders with respect to the Transactions and other matters as described in the Registration Statement and a prospectus relating to the offer of the securities to be issued to the Company’s stockholders in connection with the Transactions. After the Registration Statement has been filed and declared effective, Kensington will mail a definitive proxy statement/prospectus, when available, to its stockholders. Investors and security holders and other interested parties are urged to read the proxy statement/prospectus, any amendments thereto and any other documents filed with the SEC carefully and in their entirety when they become available because they will contain important information about Kensington, the Company and the Transactions.

Additional information regarding the participants in the proxy solicitation and a description of their direct and indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will be included in the Registration Statement and other relevant materials to be filed with the SEC regarding the Transactions when they become available. Stockholders, potential investors and other interested persons should read the Registration Statement carefully when it becomes available before making any voting or investment decisions.

No Offer or Solicitation

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K includes, or incorporates by reference, certain statements that are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “would,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of revenue and other financial and performance metrics, projections of market opportunity, expectations and timing related to product development, potential benefits of the Transactions, and expectations related to the terms and timing of the Transactions. These statements are based on various assumptions and on the current expectations of Kensington’s and the Company’s management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of Kensington and the Company. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including general economic, financial, legal, political and business conditions and changes in domestic and foreign markets; the outcome of judicial proceedings to which Kensington or the Company may become a party (including any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Kensington or the Company following announcement of the Transactions); the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the Transactions or to satisfy the other conditions to the closing of the Transactions, including the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company; the risk that the approval of the stockholders of Kensington for the Transactions is not obtained; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Transactions, including as a result of a delay in consummating the Transactions or difficulty in, or costs associated with, integrating the businesses of Kensington and the Company; the amount of redemption requests made by Kensington’s stockholders; the occurrence of events that may give rise to a right of one or both of Kensington and the Company to terminate the Business Combination Agreement; risks related to the rollout of the Company’s business, the development and performance of the Company’s products, and the timing of expected business milestones; the risk that the Transactions disrupt Kensington’s or the Company’s current plans and operations as a result of the

announcement of the Transactions; the ability to grow and manage growth following the Transactions; the effects of competition on the Company’s future business; and those factors discussed in Kensington’s Registration Statement on Form S-1, as amended, under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of Kensington filed, or to be filed, with the SEC. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither Kensington nor the Company presently do not know or that Kensington and the Company currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect Kensington’s and the Company’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Kensington and the Company anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause their assessments to change. However, while Kensington and the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Kensington and the Company specifically disclaim any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Kensington’s or the Company’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.
