COMMON STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT
This COMMON STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”), dated as of June 22, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), is entered into by and among EverCommerce Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), SLA CM Eclipse Holdings, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“SLA Eclipse”), and SLA Eclipse Co-Invest, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (together with SLA Eclipse, the “Purchasers”).
WHEREAS, the Purchasers desire to purchase from the Company, and the Company desires to sell to the Purchasers, certain Common Stock of the Company, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”) pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (the “Financing”);
WHEREAS, the parties hereto have executed this Agreement on the Effective Date, which is prior to the filing and effectiveness of the registration statement on Form 8-A (the “Form 8-A”) to be filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) registering the Common Stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), and intend that Purchasers shall acquire beneficial ownership of the Shares (as defined below) prior to such effectiveness of the Form 8-A; and
WHEREAS, the Company intends to issue and sell shares of its Common Stock pursuant to an underwriting agreement to be entered into by and among the Company and certain underwriters (the “Underwriters”), in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-256641) (the “Registration Statement”).
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1. Purchase and Sale of Shares. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Purchaser agrees to purchase, and the Company agrees to sell and issue to such Purchaser, the Shares (as defined below) as set forth opposite such Purchaser’s name on Exhibit A hereto (which will be delivered by the Purchasers to the Company prior to the pricing date) at a price per share equal to the per share initial public offering price (before underwriting discounts and expenses) in the IPO (such price, as determined prior to the effectiveness of the Form 8-A and as approved by the board of directors of the Company or the 16b-3 Committee (as defined below) on the pricing date, the “IPO Price”), as will be set forth set forth on the cover of the final prospectus included in the Registration Statement. ”Shares” shall mean the number of shares of Common Stock equal to $75,000,000.00 divided by the IPO Price, rounded down to the nearest whole share (with the total purchase price correspondingly reduced for such fractional share amount).
2. Closing: Delivery.
2.1 Closing. The closing of the sale and purchase of the Shares (the “Closing”) will take place remotely via the exchange of documents and signatures after the satisfaction or waiver of each of the conditions set forth in Section 5 (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to the fulfillment or waiver of those conditions) on the earlier of (i) the closing date of the IPO and (ii) the tenth business day following the date hereof, or such other date or time as the parties mutually agree.
2.2 Delivery of Shares. At the Closing, the Company will, at the request and election of the Purchasers, (x) make, or cause to be made, appropriate changes to the Company’s book-entry record evidencing the number of Shares that the Purchasers are purchasing at the Closing or (y) deliver such purchased Shares through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company to secure a Permitted Loan (as defined in that certain Stockholders’ Agreement, dated on or about the date hereof, by and among the Company, the Purchasers and other stockholder parties thereto (the “Sponsor SHA”)) in which case such Shares shall not bear the restrictive legends referred to in Section 8.2 below, in each case against payment of the aggregate purchase price therefor.
3. Representations and Warranties of the Purchaser. Each Purchaser represents and warrants, severally but not jointly, to the Company as follows:
3.1 Authority. Such Purchaser has all requisite legal power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement, to purchase the Shares hereunder and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement. The execution and delivery by such Purchaser of this Agreement, the performance by such Purchaser of its obligations hereunder, and the consummation by such Purchaser of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by all requisite legal action.
3.2 Enforceability. This Agreement, when executed and delivered by such Purchaser, will constitute a valid and legally binding obligation of such Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with its terms except as limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies or by general principles of equity.
3.3 Consent. No consent, approval, authorization, order, filing, registration or qualification of or with any court, governmental authority or third person is required to be obtained by such Purchaser in connection with the execution and delivery of this Agreement by such Purchaser or the performance of such Purchaser’s obligations hereunder.
3.4 Investment Purpose. Such Purchaser is acquiring the Shares for investment for its own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof in violation of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
3.5 Brokers and Finders. Such Purchaser has not engaged any brokers, finders or agents, and neither the Company nor any other person or entity has, nor will, incur, directly or indirectly, as a result of any action taken by such Purchaser, any liability for brokerage or finders’ fees or agents’ commissions or any similar charges in connection with this Agreement.
3.6 Investment Experience. Such Purchaser understands that the purchase of the Shares involves substantial risk. Such Purchaser has experience as an investor in securities of companies and acknowledges that such Purchaser is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of such Purchaser’s investment in the Shares, including a complete loss of the investment, and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that the Purchaser is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of this investment in the Shares and protecting its own interests in connection with this investment.
3.7 Restricted Securities. Such Purchaser understands that the Shares will be characterized as “restricted securities” under the federal securities laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Company in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under such laws and applicable regulations such securities may be resold without registration under the Securities Act, only in certain limited circumstances. Such Purchaser represents that it is familiar with Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Securities Act.
4. Representations and Warranties of the Company. The Company represents and warrants to each Purchaser that:
4.1 Due Incorporation; Qualification. The Company (a) is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the state of Delaware; (b) has the power and authority to own, lease and operate its properties and carry on its business as presently conducted; and (c) is duly qualified, licensed to do business and in good standing as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction where the failure to be so qualified or licensed could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), results of operations, shareholders’ equity, properties, business or prospects of the Company (a “Material Adverse Effect”).
4.2 Authority. The Company has all requisite legal power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement, to sell the Shares hereunder and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement. The execution and delivery by the Company of this Agreement, the performance by the Company of its obligations hereunder, and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by all requisite legal action. The Financing has been approved by the board of directors of the Company, or a committee of the board of directors that is composed solely of two or more Non-Employee Directors (as defined in Rule 16b-3(b)(3) under the Exchange Act) (the “16b-3 Committee”) for purposes of exempting the Financing from Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act under Rule 16b-3(d) and (e), including to the extent any Purchaser and such Purchaser’s affiliates are deemed a director by deputization.
4.3 Enforceability. This Agreement, when executed and delivered by the Company, will constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or other laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and general principles of equity.
4.4 Non-Contravention. The execution and delivery by the Company of this Agreement and the performance and consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby do not and will not violate (a) any provision of the Company’s governing or organizational documents, (b) any material judgment, order, writ, decree, statute, rule or regulation applicable to the Company or (c) or any contract, lease, license, indenture, note, bond, agreement, understanding, undertaking, concession, franchise or other instrument to which the Company or its subsidiaries is a party or by which any of their respective properties or assets is bound, except, with respect to clauses (b) and (c) as would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
4.5 Valid Issuance. The Shares, when issued and delivered in accordance with this Agreement, will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, free and clear of any liens.
4.6 Registration Statement. As of the date hereof, the Company’s Registration Statement and any prospectus contained therein complies in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder, and does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. As of the date hereof, the statements set forth in the Registration Statement, including the prospectus, under the caption “Description of Capital Stock,” insofar as they purport to constitute a summary of the terms of the Company’s capital stock and the Company’s capitalization, are accurate, complete and fair in all material respects.
4.7 Underwriting Agreement. The underwriting agreement to be entered into by and between the Company and the underwriters in connection with the IPO (the “Underwriting Agreement”) has been duly authorized.
4.8 Brokers and Finders. The Company has not engaged any brokers, finders or agents in connection with this Agreement, and none of the Purchasers nor any other person or entity has, nor will, incur, directly or indirectly, as a result of any action taken by the Company, any liability for brokerage or finders’ fees or agents’ commissions or any similar charges in connection with this Agreement.

Subject to Section 8.3(c), the foregoing shall not limit the rights of any party to serve process in any other manner permitted by applicable law. The foregoing consents to jurisdiction shall not constitute general consents to service of process in the State of Delaware for any purpose except as provided above and shall not be deemed to confer rights on any Person other than the respective parties to this Agreement.
(c) Each of the parties hereto hereby waives any right it may have under the laws of any jurisdiction to commence by publication any legal action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement or any of the obligations under or relating to this Agreement.

(e) EACH OF THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. EACH OF THE PARTIES (I) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (II) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.3(e).
8.4 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. The rights and obligations hereunder shall not be assignable without the prior written consent of the other parties hereto; provided, however, any Purchaser, without the consent of any other party, may assign, in whole or in part, any of its rights hereunder to any affiliate of such party; provided, further, that no such assignment shall relieve the assigning party of its obligations hereunder.
