Getaround Announces Inducement Awards to New CEO, Eduardo Iniguez, in Accordance with NYSE Rule 303A.08

Getaround (NYSE: GETR), the world's first connected carsharing marketplace, announced that on February 26, 2024, its Board of Directors granted to its new Chief Executive Officer, Eduardo Iniguez, employment inducement awards consisting of the following: (i) an option to purchase up to 11,100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.25 per share, which shares will vest in four annual 25% installments; and (ii) an option to purchase up to 76,950,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.25 per share, which represents approximately 10% of the shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion of all of Getaround’s outstanding 8.00%/9.50% Convertible Senior Secured PIK Toggle Notes due 2027 (the “PIK Notes”) at an as-adjusted conversion price of $0.25 per share. The amendment of such conversion price to $0.25 per share is required pursuant to the terms of the previously-disclosed super priority promissory note between the Company and Mudrick Capital Management L.P.

The shares subject to the second award will vest in four annual 25% installments, provided that such vesting is contingent upon the conversion of the PIK Notes and will be delayed, as necessary, to prevent the aggregate number of vested shares from exceeding 10% of the total number of shares of common stock actually issued upon conversion of the PIK Notes. The inducement awards were granted to Mr. Iniguez pursuant to the terms of his employment offer letter, which was disclosed by Getaround on a Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 28, 2024.

These awards were granted outside of Getaround’s 2022 Equity Incentive Plan, but except as set forth in the award agreements, will generally be subject to the same terms and conditions as apply to the applicable awards granted under the plan. The Board of Directors of Getaround unanimously approved these employment inducement awards in reliance on the employment inducement exception to shareholder approval provided under Section 303A.08 of the NYSE Listed Company Manual. To comply with the terms of this exemption, these employment inducement awards require public announcement of the awards and written notice to the NYSE.
