Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets
On November 12, 2021, Desktop Metal, Inc. (the “Company” or “Desktop Metal”) completed its previously announced acquisition of The ExOne Company (now known as ExOne Operating, LLC) (“ExOne”), pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 11, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Desktop Metal, Texas Merger Sub I, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Desktop Metal (“Merger Sub I”), Texas Merger Sub II, LLC., a Delaware limited liability company and wholly owned subsidiary of Desktop Metal (“Merger Sub II”), and ExOne, pursuant to which (i) Merger Sub I merged with and into ExOne, with ExOne as the surviving corporation and (ii) ExOne merged with and into Merger Sub II (the “Mergers”), with Merger Sub II surviving the Mergers as a wholly owned subsidiary of Desktop Metal. At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of ExOne (“ExOne Shares”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than the shares that are owned by Desktop Metal, ExOne, Merger Sub I or Merger Sub II), was converted into the right to receive (a) $8.50 in cash, without interest, and (b) 2.1416 shares of Desktop Metal Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Desktop Metal Class A common stock”).
At the Effective Time, (a) each outstanding unvested option to purchase ExOne Shares was converted into an option to acquire a number of Desktop Metal Class A common stock equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares of ExOne common stock subject to such option by 3.1416, with an exercise price per share of Desktop Metal Class A common stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the exercise price per share of ExOne common stock by 3.1416; (b) each outstanding vested option to purchase ExOne common stock was cancelled and the holder thereof became entitled to receive the excess of the merger consideration over the aggregate exercise price of such ExOne vested option, so long as such ExOne vested option’s exercise price was less than the merger consideration; (c) each award of restricted shares of ExOne subject to the ExOne Change of Control Severance Plan (“ExOne COC RSAs”) vested and were cancelled and the holder of such ExOne COC RSA received the merger consideration; (d) each award of restricted shares of ExOne common stock not subject to the ExOne Change of Control Severance Plan (“ExOne RSAs”) vested and were cancelled and the holder of such ExOne RSA received the merger consideration; and (e) each award granted under the 2021 Executive Stock Performance Program was converted into ExOne Shares (the “ESPP Award”), with the shares subject to such ESPP Award becoming vested and such vested shares were cancelled and the holder received the merger consideration.
In connection with the closing of the Mergers, Desktop Metal paid approximately $191.4 million in cash and issued approximately 48.2 million shares of Desktop Metal Class A common stock to former holders of ExOne Shares, including 0.6 million shares of Desktop Metal Class A common stock to former holders of ExOne vested options, ExOne COC RSAs, ExOne RSAs and ExOne ESPP Awards.
The issuance of Desktop Metal Class A common stock in connection with the Merger Agreement was registered under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to Desktop Metal’s registration statement on Form S-4 (Registration No. 333-259564) declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 8, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”). The proxy statement/prospectus in the Registration Statement contains additional information about the Mergers.
