IRREVOCABLE PROXY AGREEMENT
This Irrevocable Proxy Agreement (this Proxy Agreement) is entered into as of _______________, 2020 by and among Piotr Szulczewski (the Proxyholder), ContextLogic Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Corporation), and those stockholders whose names are set forth on Exhibit A hereto, (each, a Stockholder). This Proxy Agreement shall become effective as of the closing of the Initial Public Offering (as defined below). The Proxyholder and the Stockholder are sometimes referred to herein collectively as the Parties and individually as a Party.
WHEREAS, Stockholder currently holds shares of the Companys common stock or securities exercisable for Common Stock (the Existing Shares), par value $0.0001 per share (Common Stock).
WHEREAS, it is anticipated that prior to the closing of the Companys initial public offering (the Initial Public Offering), the Company will amend and restate its existing Certificate of Incorporation (the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation) such that the currently outstanding shares of Common Stock will become shares of Class B Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, with each such share having 20 votes per share (the Class B Common Stock).
WHEREAS, it is anticipated that the Company will issue Class A Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the Class A Common Stock), in the Initial Public Offering, with each such share having one vote per share.
WHEREAS, Stockholder has agreed to enter into this Proxy Agreement with respect to shares of Class B Common Stock held by it in consideration of a $100 cash payment from the Proxyholder to Stockholder and for other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged and agreed.
NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged and agreed, the Parties agree as follows:
ARTICLE 1 IRREVOCABLE PROXY
1.1 Scope of Proxy.
1.1.1 Stockholder agrees that the Proxyholder shall have the sole right to vote the Existing Shares and any other shares of Class B Common Stock of the Corporation that the Stockholder currently holds or in the future may acquire from any person or entity or as to which a Stockholder hereafter acquires the right to exercise voting or dispositive authority (collectively, the Shares), in his sole discretion, on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Corporation at a meeting of stockholders or through the solicitation of a written consent of stockholders (whether of any individual class of stock, of multiple classes of stock voting together, or on consents or votes of the stockholders). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Shares shall not include shares of Class A Common Stock that Stockholder may acquire after or in connection with the Initial Public Offering.
1.1.2 Stockholder further agrees that, unless the Proxyholder provides explicit written instruction to vote the Shares under this Proxy Agreement or the Proxyholder provides explicit written notice that any Stockholder shall be permitted by the Proxyholder to vote in a manner other than as the Proxyholder instructs, Stockholder shall abstain from voting any of the Shares (in person, by proxy or by action by written consent, as applicable) on any matter submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Corporation (whether of any individual class of stock, of multiple classes of stock voting together, or on consents or votes of the stockholders).
1.1.3 To secure the Proxyholders rights to vote the Shares and to otherwise comply with the terms hereof, Stockholder irrevocably appoints the Proxyholder as such Stockholders true and lawful proxy and attorney-in-fact, with the power to act alone and with full power of substitution, to vote or act by written consent with respect to all of the Shares in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Proxy Agreement, and to execute all appropriate instruments consistent with this Proxy Agreement on behalf of such Stockholder. The proxy and power granted by Stockholder pursuant to this Section 1.1 are coupled with an interest and are given to secure the performance of each Partys duties under this Proxy Agreement. The proxy and power will be irrevocable for the term hereof. Except as provided below in Section 1.2.2 and Section 3.1, the proxy and power will survive the merger, consolidation, conversion or reorganization of Stockholder or any other entity holding the Shares or any Transfer (as defined below) of the Shares.
1.2.1 If Stockholder desires to transfer, sell, assign, pledge or otherwise dispose of or encumber any shares of Class B Common Stock (collectively, a Transfer) and such Transfer constitutes a Permitted Transfer as defined in the then existing Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, such Transfer shall not take effect until the pledgee, transferee or donee of such Shares (the Transferee) furnishes the Proxyholder and the Corporation with a written agreement to be bound by the terms of this Proxy Agreement (an Assumption Agreement) it being understood and agreed that the Corporation shall be entitled to issue stop transfer instructions in respect of such Shares to preclude any transfer of Shares in contravention of the foregoing. Upon satisfaction of the foregoing provisions, such pledgee, transferee or donee shall be treated as a Stockholder for purposes of this Proxy Agreement.
1.2.2 If such Transfer is not a Permitted Transfer pursuant to the Companys then existing Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, then this Proxy Agreement will have no further effect with respect to such shares of Class B Common Stock (or any underlying shares of Class A Common Stock) subject to the Transfer.
1.3 Additional Shares. In the event of any issuance of shares of Common Stock or Class B Common Stock hereafter to Stockholder (including, without limitation, in connection with any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reorganization, or the like), such shares shall automatically become subject to this Proxy Agreement and shall be endorsed with the legend set forth in Section 2.1.
ARTICLE 2 ENDORSEMENT OF SHARES
2.1 Legend. The Corporation shall cause each certificate representing the Shares to bear the following legend:
THE SHARES OF STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO AN IRREVOCABLE PROXY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE HOLDER OF THESE SHARES, CONTEXTLOGIC INC., A DELAWARE CORPORATION, AND CERTAIN OTHER PARTIES, A COPY OF WHICH IS ON FILE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE CORPORATION. THE IRREVOCABLE PROXY AGREEMENT INCLUDES PROVISIONS POTENTIALLY RESTRICTING THE STOCKHOLDERS RIGHT TO VOTE OR TRANSFER HIS OR ITS ENTIRE INTEREST IN THE SHARES EVIDENCED HEREBY, AND BY ACCEPTING ANY INTEREST IN SUCH SHARES THE PERSON ACCEPTING SUCH INTEREST SHALL BE DEEMED TO AGREE TO AND SHALL BECOME BOUND BY ALL THE PROVISIONS OF SAID IRREVOCABLE PROXY AGREEMENT.

3.4 Governing Law; Forum. This Proxy Agreement and its validity, construction and performance shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to conflict of law principles.

3.5 Severability. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Proxy Agreement to be invalid or unenforceable as to any person or circumstance, such findings shall not render that provision invalid or unenforceable as to any other persons or circumstances, and shall not impact the enforceability of the remaining portions of this Proxy Agreement. If feasible, any such offending provision shall be deemed to be modified to be within the limits of enforceability or validity; however, if the offending provision cannot be so modified, it shall be stricken and all other provisions of this Proxy Agreement in all other respects shall remain valid and enforceable.
