One June 16, 2022, the Issuer consummated the Business Combination (the “Closing”), pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of December 7, 2021, as amended and restated on March 31, 2022, by and among VGAC II, Treehouse Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned direct subsidiary of VGAC II (“Merger Sub I”), Treehouse Merger Sub II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly owned direct subsidiary of VGAC II (“Merger Sub II”) and Grove Collaborative, Inc., a Delaware public benefit corporation (“Grove”). The transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement are collectively referred to herein as the “Business Combination.”

On June 15, 2022, as contemplated by the Merger Agreement, VGAC II filed a notice of deregistration with the Cayman Islands Registrar of Companies, together with the necessary accompanying documents, and filed a certificate of incorporation and a certificate of corporate domestication with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, under which VGAC II was domesticated and continued as a Delaware public benefit corporation, changing its name to “Grove Collaborative Holdings, Inc.” As a result of and upon the effective time of the Domestication, among other things, (i) each of the then issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, of VGAC II, and Class B ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, of VGAC II, automatically converted, on a one-for-one basis, into shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of New Grove (the “Class A Common Stock”).

Under the Merger Agreement, among other things, (i) each share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Grove (“Grove Common Stock”) and preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Grove (“Grove Preferred Stock”) (on an as-converted to common stock basis) (other than dissenting shares) was canceled and converted into the right to receive (a) a number of shares of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of New Grove (the “Class B Common Stock”), as determined pursuant to an exchange ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement (the “Exchange Ratio”) and (b) a number of restricted shares of New Grove Class B Common Stock that will vest upon the achievement of certain earnout thresholds prior to the tenth anniversary of Closing (the “Grove Earnout Shares”).

In connection with the Merger Agreement, on December 7, 2021, VGAC II entered into subscription agreements (collectively, the “Subscription Agreements”), with certain investors including the Reporting Persons (collectively, the “PIPE Investors”) pursuant to which, and on the terms and subject to the conditions of which, the PIPE Investors collectively subscribed for 8,707,500 shares of New Grove Class A Common Stock at a price of $10.00 per share for aggregate proceeds of $87,075,000 (the “PIPE Financing”). The PIPE Financing was consummated substantially concurrently with the Closing.

 

ITEM 4.

PURPOSE OF THE TRANSACTION

The Reporting Persons acquired the Class A Common Stock and the Class B Common Stock for investment purposes. Depending on the factors discussed herein, the Reporting Persons may, from time to time, investigate, evaluate, discuss, negotiate or agree to acquire additional shares of Class A Common Stock or Class B Common Stock in the open market, in connection with issuances by the Company or sales by other stockholders in transactions registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise and/or investigate, evaluate, discuss, negotiate or agree to retain and/or sell or otherwise dispose of all or a portion of shares of Class A Common Stock or Class B Common Stock in the open market, through transactions registered under the Securities Act, through privately negotiated transactions to the Company or third parties or through distributions to their respective partners, or otherwise. Any actions the Reporting Persons might undertake will be dependent upon the Reporting Persons’ review of numerous factors, including, among other things, the price levels of the Class A Common Stock and the Class B Common Stock; general market and economic conditions; ongoing evaluation of the Company’s business, financial condition, operating results and prospects; the relative attractiveness of alternative business and investment opportunities; and other future developments.
