 Page 11 of 14 Pages 

 

With respect to the Class A Preferred Shares, Marubeni has agreed to use reasonable endeavors to convert the Class A Preferred Shares into Common Shares as soon as reasonably practicable following the Completion Date, provided that Marubeni shall not effect a conversion if such conversion is reasonably likely to result in Marubeni becoming the owner of 20% or more of the Common Shares then issued and outstanding (the “20% Threshold”) (giving effect to the potential subsequent exercise and receipt by Marubeni of Common Shares pursuant to the Warrant and/or the potential subsequent receipt of any additional Common Shares as a result of the employment of the vessel Seajacks Scylla during the period from May 1, 2021 to October 31, 2021, and after taking into account of any Common Shares that the Company has repurchased under any approved share repurchase plan following the Completion Date). Additionally, the Company has agreed to not repurchase any Common Shares if such repurchase would result in Marubeni crossing the 20% Threshold.

On November 11, 2021, the Company issued to the Reporting Persons 312,477 Common Shares, in the aggregate, pursuant to clause 7 of the Share Purchase Agreement as a result of the employment of the vessel Seajacks Scylla during the period from May 1, 2021 to October 31, 2021.

On December 21, 2021, the 700,000 Class A Preferred Shares were converted to Common Shares on a one-to-one basis.

Except with the prior written consent of the Company, the Reporting Persons have agreed to not transfer any Common Shares, beneficial ownership thereof or any other interest therein, prior to the expiration of the 180th day following the Completion Date (the “Lock-up Period”), except to another Reporting Person, their subsidiaries, and any holding company of any Reporting Person and any subsidiaries of such holding company. The Lock-up Period expired on February 8, 2022.

The foregoing description of the Share Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Schedule 13D and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Shareholders’ Agreement

 

In connection with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Share Purchase Agreement, Marubeni, INCJ, MOL, the Company, and SSH entered into the Shareholders’ Agreement, dated as of August 12, 2021 (the “Shareholders’ Agreement”).

Pursuant to the Shareholders’ Agreement, for a period of seven years commencing on the Completion Date, as long as each of Marubeni and INCJ each beneficially own at least 2,500,000 Common Shares of the Company, each of Marubeni and INCJ has the right to designate one nominee for appointment or election to the Board of Directors of the Company. Either Marubeni or INCJ (but not both) has the right to transfer its right to designate one nominee for appointment or election to the Board of Directors of the Company to MOL such that MOL, instead of Marubeni or INCJ, will have the right to designate one nominee for appointment or election to the Board of Directors.

For a period of seven years commencing at the Completion Date, Marubeni, INCJ, MOL, and SSH have agreed to vote their Common Shares in accordance with the recommendations of the Board, or any committee thereof, with respect to the appointment of any director recommended by the Board or any committee (including the Marubeni and INCJ nominees to the Board of Directors of the Company); provided that the number of directors related to SSH or any of its affiliates does not exceed two directors at any given time. Additionally, each of Marubeni, INCJ, and MOL have agreed to vote their Common Shares in support of any increase in the authorized share capital of the Company as recommended by the Company’s Board of Directors, including a majority of the independent directors; provided that such shareholder is entitled pursuant to the Shareholders’ Agreement to nominate at least one director to the Board.

Additionally, in the event that the Company issues additional shares of Common Stock or securities convertible into shares of Common Stock during the period commencing on the Completion Date and ending on the seven year anniversary of the Completion Date, the Company must offer to each Reporting Person the right to purchase its pro-rata portion of such additional shares equal to the greater of (i) the percentage determined by dividing (x) the number of shares of Common Shares held by such Reporting Person on a fully-diluted basis by (y) the number of shares of Common Shares of the Company outstanding on a fully diluted basis as of the Completion Date, and (ii) the percentage determined by dividing (x) the Consideration Shares held by such Reporting Person on a fully-diluted basis as of the Completion Date, by (y) the number of shares of Common Shares of the Company outstanding on a fully diluted basis as of the Completion Date.

 Page 12 of 14 Pages 

 

On May 12, 2022, Marubeni, MOL, SSH, the Company and INCJ reached a mutual agreement whereby INCJ’s participation in the Shareholders’ Agreement was terminated, including INCJ’s right to designate one nominee for appointment or election to the Board of Directors of the Company, and INCJ is no longer subject to the voting obligations under the Shareholders’ Agreement. In connection with the termination, Peter Niklai resigned from his position as a Class C Director, effective as of the same date.

The foregoing description of the Shareholders’ Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement filed as Exhibit 99.2 to the Schedule 13D and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Registration Rights Agreement

 

In connection with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Share Purchase Agreement, Marubeni Offshore, INCJ SJ, MOL Offshore, and the Company entered into the Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of August 12, 2021. Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company has agreed to prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement on Form F-3 (the “Registration Statement”), as soon as practicable after the Completion Date, but in any event no later than 60 days prior to the expiration of the Lock-up Period, with respect to the resale of the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) of Marubeni Offshore, INCJ SJ and MOL Offshore. The Company has agreed to use commercially reasonable best efforts to cause such Registration Statement to be declared effective as soon as practicable after filing.
