Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 9, 2021, Weber Inc. (the “Company”) closed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 17,857,143 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), at an offering price of $14.00 per share, pursuant to the Company’s registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-257824), as amended (the “Registration Statement”). In connection with the IPO, the Company completed the Reorganization Transactions (as defined in the Registration Statement), including by entering into the following agreements, forms of which were previously filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement:

 

  

a Tax Receivable Agreement, dated as of August 9, 2021, by and among the Company, Weber HoldCo LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Weber HoldCo”), and each of the other persons and entities party thereto, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference;

 

  

a Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of August 9, 2021, by and among the Company and the other persons and entities party thereto, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference;

 

  

a Stockholders Agreement, dated as of August 9, 2021, by and among the Company and each of the other persons and entities party thereto, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference; and

 

  

the Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of Weber HoldCo, dated as of August 9, 2021, by and among the Company, Weber HoldCo and the other persons and entities party thereto, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.4 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The terms of these agreements are substantially the same as the terms set forth in the forms of such agreements filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement and as described therein.

In addition, in connection with the closing of the IPO and using part of the proceeds therefrom, the Company repaid $220.10 million of term loans under its secured credit facility.

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

In connection with the reorganization incident to the IPO, the Company issued 236,994,533 shares of Class B Common Stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Class B Common Stock”), to the Pre-IPO LLC Members (as defined in the Registration Statement). The shares of Class B Common Stock were issued for nominal consideration in reliance on the exemption contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, on the basis that the transaction did not involve a public offering.

The number of shares of Class B Common Stock that were issued corresponds to the number of non-voting common interest units of Weber HoldCo (“LLC Units”) issued to the Pre-IPO LLC Members. Pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of Weber HoldCo, each holder of LLC Units has the right to require Weber HoldCo to redeem all or a portion of its LLC Units for, at the Company’s election, newly issued shares of Class A Common Stock on a one-for-one basis or a cash payment equal to the volume weighted average market price of one share of Class A Common Stock for each LLC Unit redeemed (subject to customary adjustments, including for stock splits, stock dividends and reclassifications). Additionally, in the event of a redemption request by a holder of LLC Units, the Company may, at its option, effect a direct exchange of cash or Class A Common Stock for LLC Units in lieu of such a redemption. A corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock will be canceled on a one-for-one basis if the Company or Weber HoldCo, following a redemption request of a holder of LLC Units, redeems or exchanges LLC Units of such holder of LLC Units.

No underwriters were involved in the issuance and sale of the shares of Class B Common Stock.

Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

The information set forth under Item 5.03 below is incorporated by reference in this Item 3.03.

Item 5.03. Amendments to Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
