Item 2.01.Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.


On February 16, 2021, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, EnvisionTEC Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub I”) and EnvisionTEC US, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub II”), Envisiontec, Inc. (“envisionTEC”), Gulf Filtration Systems, Inc. (“Gulf”), 3dbotics, Inc. (“3dbotics” and together with envisionTEC, Gulf and 3dbotics, and Envisiontec GmbH (“envisionTEC Germany”), the “envisionTEC Group”), and the Seller, the Company completed its previously announced acquisition of the envisionTec Group (the “Closing”), with (i) the mergers (the “Mergers”) of (A) Merger Sub I with and into envisionTEC, with envisionTEC continuing as the surviving corporation, and subsequently, (B) envisionTEC with and into Merger Sub II, with Merger Sub II continuing as the surviving corporation and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of the Company; and (ii) the purchase of all of the issued and outstanding stock of envisionTEC Germany, Gulf and 3dbotics (the “Share Purchase”).


The transaction was valued at $300,000,000, with the Seller and certain key employees of the envisionTEC Group receiving $150 million in cash, as adjusted for, among other things, the amount of cash, debt and working capital in the business on February 16, 2021 and Seller issuing or agreeing to grant a total of 5,511,990 shares of Class A common stock of the Company and restricted stock awards valued in the aggregate at $150,000,000, based on an agreed per share price of $27.2134 per share.


A copy of the Merger Agreement is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 15, 2021. The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement.


Item 3.02Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


The information set forth under Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.


5,036,142 shares of Class A common stock (the "Shares") were issued to the Seller in transactions exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), by virtue of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Seller represented his intention to acquire the Shares for investment only and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution. The Seller also represented that he is an “accredited investor” as that term is defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act. Appropriate restrictive legends are reflected in a restricted book entry with the Company’s transfer agent. The Seller also had adequate access, through business relationships and the course of negotiations, to information about the Company and could, with counsel and his professional experience, evaluate that information.


Item 5.02Election of Directors.


On February 16, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company increased the size of the Board to twelve directors and appointed Ali El-Siblani to serve as a member of the Board as a Class III Director. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company agreed to take all action necessary to cause Mr. Siblani to be appointed to its Board as a Class III director, effective from and after the Closing. Other than the Merger Agreement, there was no arrangement or understanding pursuant to which Mr. El-Siblani was elected as a director. Mr. El-Siblani has also entered into the Company’s standard indemnification agreement for directors and officers.
