Prior to the Business Combination, Legacy Grove had one class of authorized common stock (Class B common stock). The outstanding shares of Legacy Grove common stock is presented on the consolidated balance sheet and on the statements of convertible preferred stock, contingently redeemable convertible common stock and stockholders’ deficit for the year ended December 31, 2021.
On the Closing Date and in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Business Combination, each common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (other than Backstop Tranche 1 Shares), preferred stock, outstanding options (whether vested or unvested), restricted stock units (whether vested or unvested) and warrants of Legacy Grove was canceled and converted into a comparable number of awards (i) that consisted of either the rights to receive or acquire shares of the Company’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, as determined by the exchange ratio, and (ii) the right to receive a number of the Company’s Earn-Out shares. Each Backstop Tranche 1 Shares issued to the Backstop Investor pursuant to the Backstop Subscription Agreement was canceled and converted into the right to receive a number of shares of the Company’s Class B common stock equal to the exchange ratio, which were immediately exchanged on a one-for-one basis for shares of the Company’s Class A common stock). The exchange ratio is approximately 1.1760.
On June 16, 2022, in connection with the closing of the Business Combination, the Company amended and restated its certificate of incorporation to authorize 900,000,000 shares, consisting of (a) 800,000,000 shares of common stock, including (i) 600,000,000 shares of Class A common stock, and (ii) 200,000,000 shares of Class B common stock, and (b) 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock.
The rights of the holders of the Company’s Class A common stock and Class B common stock are identical, except with respect to number of voting rights. Holders of the Company’s Class A common stock are entitled to one vote per share and holders of Class B common stock are entitled to ten votes per share. Each share of Class B common stock is convertible into one share of the Company’s Class A common stock any time at the option of the holder, and is automatically converted into one share of the Company’s Class A common stock upon transfer (except for certain permitted transfers). Once converted into the Company’s Class A common stock, the Class B common stock will not
be reissued. The Company’s Board of Directors has the authority to issue shares of the Preferred Stock in one or more series and to determine the voting rights, designations, powers, preferences, other rights and restrictions of each such series of shares. As of December 31, 2022, no shares of preferred stock were issued and outstanding.
Class A Common Stock Warrants
As the accounting acquirer, Grove Collaborative, Inc. is deemed to have assumed 6,700,000 Private Placement Warrants for the Company’s Class A common stock that were held by Virgin Group Acquisition Sponsor II LLC (the “Sponsor”) at an exercise price of $11.50 and 8,050,000 of the Company’s Class A common stock Public Warrants that were held by VGAC II’s shareholders at an exercise price of $11.50. The warrants will expire on July 16, 2027, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation.
Subsequent to the Closing of the Business Combination, the Private Placement and Public Warrants for shares of the Company’s Class A common stock meet liability classification requirements since the warrants may be required to be settled in cash under a tender offer. In addition, Private Placement warrants are potentially subject to a different settlement amount as a result of being held by the Sponsor which precludes the private placement warrants from being considered indexed to the entity's own stock. Therefore, these warrants are classified as liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets and amounted to $1.5 million as of December 31, 2022.
As of December 31, 2022, the following Warrants were outstanding:
The Public Warrants become exercisable into shares of the Company’s Class A common stock commencing on July 16, 2022 and expire on July 16, 2027, or earlier upon redemption or liquidation. At closing, the Company assumed 8,050,000 public warrants. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of the Company’s Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, subject to certain adjustments.
The Company may redeem, with 30 days written notice, each whole outstanding Public Warrant for cash at a price of $0.01 per warrant if the Reference Value equals or exceeds $18.00 per share, subject to certain adjustments. The warrant holders have the right to exercise their outstanding warrants prior to the scheduled redemption date during the Redemption Period at $11.50 per share, subject to certain adjustments. If the Company calls the Public Warrants for redemption, the Company will have the option to require all holders that wish to exercise the Public Warrants to do so on a “cashless basis”, as described in the warrant agreement. For purposes of the redemption, “Reference Value” shall mean the last reported sales price of the Company’s Class A common stock for any trading days within the trading-day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which notice of the redemption is given.
Private Placement Warrants
The Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants, except that the Private Placement Warrants were not transferable, assignable or salable until 30 days after the completion of a Business Combination, subject to certain limited exceptions. Additionally, the Private Warrants are exercisable on a cashless basis and are non-redeemable so long as they are held by the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees. If the Private Warrants are held by someone other than the initial purchasers or their permitted transferees, then such warrants will be redeemable by the Company and exercisable by the warrant holders on the same basis as the Public Warrants. At Closing, the Company assumed 6,700,000 Private Placement Warrants.
Standby Equity Purchase Agreement
On July 18, 2022, the Company entered into a Standby Equity Purchase Agreement (the “SEPA”) with YA II PN, LTD (“Yorkville” or “SEPA Investor”), pursuant to which Yorkville has agreed to purchase up to $100 million of common stock from time to time over a period of 36 months, subject to certain conditions. The shares of the Company’s common stock that may be issued under the SEPA may be sold by us to Yorkville at our discretion from time to time and sales of the Company’s common stock under the SEPA will depend upon market conditions and other factors. Additionally, in no event may the Company sell more than 32,557,664 shares of common stock to Yorkville under the SEPA, which number of shares is equal to 19.99% of the shares of the Company's common stock outstanding immediately prior to the execution of the Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Exchange Cap”), unless stockholder approval is obtained to issue shares of common stock in excess of the Exchange Cap in accordance with applicable NYSE rules or comply with certain other requirements as described in the Equity Purchase Agreement. As a result, unless the Company’s stock price exceeds $3.07, the Company will be unable to sell the full $100.0 million commitment to Yorkville without seeking stockholder approval to issue additional shares in excess of the Exchange Cap. The purchase price per share for the Company’s Class A common stock will be 97.55% of the Volume-Weighted Average Price (“VWAP”) of the Company’s Class A common stock over the Pricing Period, as defined by the agreement. The Company deferred $0.7 million of transaction costs related to the SEPA and will offset these costs against proceeds of any sales under the SEPA. As of December 31, 2022, the Company has sold 739,825 shares under the SEPA for total gross proceeds of $2.4 million. Issuance costs related to these shares are not material. As of December 31, 2022, there were 31,817,839 shares available to be sold to Yorkville under the Exchange Cap.
HGI Subscription Agreement
On November 10, 2022, the Company entered into a subscription agreement (the “HGI Subscription Agreement”) with HCI Grove LLC (“HGI”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Company issued to HGI 1,984,126 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock (“Subscribed Shares”) for aggregate proceeds of $2.5 million. Under the terms of the HGI Subscription Agreement, the Company is required to file a registration statement for the Subscribed Shares upon the Company becoming eligible to file a registration statement on Form S-3 and in any event prior to July 15, 2023 (the “Subscribed Shares Registration Statement”).
The HGI Subscription Agreement also provides that the Company will issue additional shares (the “HGI Additional Shares”) of the Company’s Class A common stock to HGI in the event that the volume weighted average price of the Company’s Class A common stock is less than $1.26 during the three trading days commencing on the first trading day after (i) the Company files the Subscribed Shares Registration Statement (the “Registration Date”), (ii) the three-month anniversary of the Registration Date, (iii) the six-month anniversary of the Registration Date, or (iv) the nine-month anniversary of the Registration Date (“Measurement Periods” and each “Measurement Period”) upon HGI’s election to receive such additional shares. HGI may use all or a portion of each Subscribed Share once to determine the amount of any issuance of Additional Shares in connection with the Measurement Periods such that HGI may utilize, for example, half of the Subscribed Shares to receive further Additional Shares, and leave the remaining half of the Subscribed Shares available to utilize in connection with the remaining Measurement Periods. HGI must elect to receive HGI Additional Shares for one Measurement Period, or the right lapses or is superseded by the next measurement period. The Company determined the HGI Additional Shares qualify as stock based compensation and upon the issuance of the liability for the HGI Additional Shares, the Company recognized a corresponding expense of $0.8 million in selling, general administrative expense on the Company’s statement of operations. Subsequent changes in fair value will be recognized in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations. No shares have been issued related to the HGI Additional shares as of December 31, 2022.
Concurrent with the HGI Subscription Agreement, the Company also entered into a consulting services agreement (the “Consulting Agreement”) with HCI Grove Management LLC (the “Consultant”). In consideration for the services under the Consulting Agreement, the Company (i) paid the Consultant an upfront fee of $150,000 and (ii) issued the Consultant 4,525,000 warrants (the “HGI Warrant Shares”) to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock (the “HGI Warrants”), at an exercise price per share of $1.26 (the “Exercise Price”). On November 10, 2022, 40% of the HGI Warrant Shares vested and became issuable (the “Vested Warrants”), and the remaining HGI Warrant Shares (the “Unvested Warrants”) shall vest and become exercisable if, prior to December 31, 2024, the Company achieves at least $100 million in quarterly net revenue on a consolidated basis or if the Company consummates a Change of Control, as defined in HGI Warrants. If, as a result of the Change of Control, the
Company’s equity holders own less than 25% of the equity securities of the surviving entity in such Change of Control, the Exercise Price shall be increased by 50%.
The Company determined the Vested Warrants and Unvested Warrants qualify as stock based compensation to a nonemployee and for the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company recognized expense of $1.2 million related to the Vested Warrants and no expense related to the Unvested Warrants in selling, general and administrative expense in the consolidated statement of operations. The Company performs a probability reassessment related to the Unvested Warrants each reporting period and will recognize the cumulative catch-up adjustment based on the grant-date fair value when the vesting conditions are probable of being achieved. Any remaining expense will continue to ratably recognized until the date the revenue target is achieved, and the Unvested Warrants are fully vested.
The fair value of Vested Warrants and Unvested Warrants granted to HGI was estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, with the following assumptions:
