Notice of Blackout Related Lock-Up Release
In connection with the initial public offering of Class A common stock (the “IPO”) of VIZIO Holding Corp. (“VIZIO”), each of VIZIO’s directors, executive officers, and holders of substantially all of VIZIO’s outstanding equity securities as of the IPO entered into lock-up agreements with the underwriters for the IPO (the “Underwriters”) that restrict the ability to sell or transfer any shares of VIZIO’s capital stock until 180 days after March 24, 2021, subject to specific exceptions, including early release upon the satisfaction of certain conditions described below (the “IPO Lock-Up Period”).
Pursuant to the lock-up agreements with the Underwriters, if (i) at least 120 days have elapsed since March 24, 2021, (ii) VIZIO has publicly released earnings results for the quarterly period during which the IPO occurred and (iii) such lock-up period is scheduled to end during or within five trading days prior to a broadly applicable and regularly scheduled period during which trading in VIZIO’s securities would not be permitted under its insider trading policy (“blackout period”), such lock-up period will end ten trading days prior to the commencement of such blackout period.
The lock-up period is scheduled to end within VIZIO's quarterly blackout period. Therefore, in accordance with the lock-up agreements with the Underwriters, the IPO Lock-Up Period will end at the open of trading on August 19, 2021, which is ten trading days prior to the commencement of VIZIO’s quarterly blackout period. VIZIO will also release the market standoff agreements when the lock-up period expires.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on behalf of the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
