Description of Registrants Securities
DESCRIPTION OF THE REGISTRANT’S SECURITIES
REGISTERED PURSUANT TO SECTION 12
OF THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934, AS AMENDED
As of December 31, 2019, Lazydays Holdings, Inc. (the “Company,” “Lazydays,” “Registrant,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) had one class of securities registered under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended: our common stock.
The following is a description of the material terms of our common stock and preferred stock as set forth in our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), our Bylaws (the “Bylaws”), and our Certificate of Designations of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designation”), which govern the rights of our common stock and preferred stock. This description is only a summary. You should read it together with the Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws, and Certificate of Designation, which are included as exhibits to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and incorporated by reference herein.
Our Certificate of Incorporation provides for the issuance of 100,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share. As of December 31, 2019, we had 8,428,666 shares of common stock outstanding and 600,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding.
The holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote for each share held of record on all matters to be voted on by stockholders. There is no cumulative voting with respect to the election of directors, with the result that the holders of more than 50% of our shares voted for the election of directors can elect all of the directors.
Holders of our common stock do not have any conversion, preemptive or other subscription rights and there are no sinking fund or redemption provisions applicable to our common stock.
We have not paid any cash dividends on our common stock and do not plan to pay any cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. Our board of directors (“Board”) will determine our future dividend policy on the basis of many factors, including results of operations, capital requirements, and general business conditions, subject to any restrictions under our credit facility and the Certificate of Designations for the Series A Preferred Stock.
Our Board currently consists of seven (7) directors who are divided into three classes. Directors in each class serve a three-year term. The terms of each class expire at successive annual meetings so that the stockholders elect one class of directors at each annual meeting. The current classification of our Board is: (i) Class A – has two (2) directors with a term expiring at the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders; (ii) Class B – has two (2) directors with a term expiring at the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders; and (iii) Class C – has three (3) directors with a term expiring at the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders.
Mr. Fredlake was originally designated to our Board by Lazy Days’ R.V. Center, Messrs. Gnat and Weil were originally designated to our Board by Andina, Messrs. Shackelton and Comstock were originally designated to our Board by certain of the preferred stock investors in the PIPE Investment, and Mr. Murnane was originally designated to our Board by mutual agreement of Andina and Lazydays. Each of our directors was elected by the stockholders prior to the business combination on March 15, 2018, except for Ms. Serow who was nominated by the Nominating Committee and appointed to the Board subsequent to the closing of the business combination. The holders of preferred stock are allowed to designate up to two (2) members to the Board.
Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of 5,000,000 shares of blank check preferred stock with such designations, rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by our Board. Any designated series of preferred stock shall have such powers, designations, preferences and relative, participation or optional or other special rights and qualifications, limitations or restrictions as shall be expressed in the resolution adopted by the Board. Once designated by our Board, each series of preferred stock will have specific financial and other terms that will be described in a prospectus supplement. The description of the preferred stock that is set forth in any prospectus supplement is not complete without reference to the documents that govern the preferred stock. These include our Certificate of Incorporation and any certificates of designation that our Board may adopt. Prior to the issuance of shares of each series of preferred stock, the Board is required by the Delaware General Corporation Law (“DGCL”) and our Certificate of Incorporation to adopt resolutions and file a certificate of designations with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The certificate of designations fixes for each class or series the designations, powers, preferences, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions, including, but not limited to, some or all of the following: (i) entitled to voting powers, full or limited; (ii) subject to redemption at such time or times and at such price or prices as our Board may establish; (iii) entitled to receive dividends (which may be cumulative or non-cumulative) at such rates, on such conditions, and at such times, and payable in preference to, or in such relation to, the dividends payable on any other class or classes or any other series as our Board may establish; (iv) entitled to such rights upon the dissolution of us, or upon any distribution of our assets, as our Board may establish; or (v) convertible into, or exchangeable for, shares of any other class or classes of stock, or of any other series of the same or any other class or classes of stock, of ours at such price or prices or at such rates of exchange and with such adjustments as our Board may establish.
Series A Preferred Stock
In connection with the PIPE Investment on March 15, 2018, we designated 600,000 shares as Series A Preferred Stock.
The material terms of the Series A Preferred Stock are as follows:
The Series A Preferred Stock ranks senior to all outstanding capital stock of the Company. Except as required by law or by the Certificate of Designation, holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to vote on an as-converted basis together with the holders of our common stock, and not as a separate class, at any annual or special meeting of Company stockholders. However, the Certificate of Designation provides holders of the Series A Preferred Stock with a separate vote requiring the vote or consent of a majority of the Series A Preferred Stock (unless otherwise waived by a majority of the Series A Preferred Stock) relating to certain actions, including: (i) the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company if the holders of Series A Preferred Stock will not have the option to receive the full liquidation preference; (ii) any amendment or repeal of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws that adversely modifies the rights, preferences, privileges or voting powers of the Series A Preferred Stock; (iii) any authorization or issuance of a new class of securities having rights, preferences or privileges senior to or on parity with the Series A Preferred Stock: (iv) any increase or decrease in the authorized number of Series A Preferred Stock; (v) any increase in the number of members of the Board above eight (8); (vi) certain issuances of senior indebtedness or certain incurrences of floor plan financing; (vii) any sale or agreement to license any material asset or material portion of the assets of the Company or any subsidiary other than in the ordinary course of business; (viii) the making of capital expenditures during any four consecutive fiscal quarters in excess of 25% of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) for such four (4) fiscal quarters; (ix) any change by the Company or any subsidiary in its principal line of business or entry into an additional line of business; and (x) the appointment of any Chief Executive Officer, other than William Murnane.
The Series A Preferred Stock will be convertible into shares of our common stock at the holder’s election at any time, and such holder will receive such number of shares of common stock as is equal to the product obtained by multiplying the conversion rate then in effect by the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock being converted, plus cash in lieu of fractional shares. The conversion rate is calculated as the quotient obtained by dividing the liquidation preference then in effect by the conversion price. Currently, the conversion rate is 9 ###-###-#### calculated by dividing the liquidation preference currently in effect of $100 by the initial conversion price of $10.0625. The conversion price will be subject to adjustment for stock dividends, forward and reverse splits, combinations and similar events, as well as for certain dilutive issuances. The liquidation preference and initial conversion price are set forth in the Certificate of Designation and were determined based on the valuation of the securities of Andina taking into account the impact of the Mergers and the rights and preferences of the Series A Preferred Stock. As a result, the 600,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock are convertible into 5,962,733 shares of common stock (this excludes accrued dividends which the Company may elect to pay in cash or shares of common stock).
Dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock will accrue at an initial rate of 8% per annum (the “Dividend Rate”), compounded quarterly, and be payable quarterly in arrears on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 of each year (unless any such day is not a business day, in which event such preferred dividends shall be payable on the next succeeding business day, without accrual to the actual payment date). If we do not declare and pay dividends on any dividend payment date, such accrued and unpaid dividends, until paid in full in cash, will accrue at the then applicable Dividend Rate plus 2%. The Dividend Rate will be increased to 11% per annum, compounded quarterly, in the event our senior indebtedness less unrestricted cash during any trailing twelve month period ending at the end of any fiscal quarter is greater than 2.25 times EBITDA (as defined in the Certificate of Designations of the Series A Preferred Stock) for such preceding twelve (12)-month period. The Dividend Rate will be reset to 8% at the end of the first fiscal quarter when our senior indebtedness less unrestricted cash during the trailing twelve month period ending at the end of such quarter is less than 2.25 times EBITDA for such preceding twelve (12)-month period.
If, at any time following the second anniversary of the issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock, the volume weighted average price of our common stock equals or exceeds $25.00 (as adjusted for stock dividends, splits, combinations and similar events) for a period of thirty consecutive trading days, we may force the conversion of any or all of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock at the conversion price then in effect. From and after the eighth anniversary of the issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock, we may elect to redeem all, but not less than all, of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock in cash at the stated value thereof plus all accrued and unpaid dividends. From and after the ninth anniversary of the issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock has the right to require us to redeem all of such holder’s outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock in cash at the stated value thereof plus all accrued and unpaid dividends.
In the event of any liquidation, merger, sale, dissolution or winding up of the Company, holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to (i) payment in cash equal to the liquidation preference thereof plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, or (ii) convert the shares of Series A Preferred Stock into our common stock and participate on an as-converted basis with our holders of common stock.
So long as the Series A Preferred Stock is outstanding, the holders thereof, by the vote or written consent of the holders of a majority in voting power of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock, shall have the right to designate two members to our Board.
The holders of Series A Preferred Stock may elect in writing to the Company to be subject to a beneficial ownership limitation, initially set at 9.99% (but which may subsequently be set at a higher or lower percentage by the electing holder) of the shares of common stock then outstanding after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder. If a holder of the Series A Preferred Stock has elected to be subject to a beneficial ownership limitation, the Company shall not effect any conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock and the holder shall not have any right to convert any portion of the Series A Preferred Stock if after giving effect to such conversion, the holder would beneficially own in excess of its then applicable beneficial ownership limitation.
The securities purchase agreement entered into in connection with the sale of the Series A Preferred Stock also includes the following rights:
|●||Subject to applicable securities laws and regulations, any purchaser that continues to hold Series A Preferred Stock convertible into 5% or more of the then issued and outstanding shares of our common stock shall also have a preemptive right to purchase its pro rata share of all equity securities that we may, from time to time, propose to sell and issue after the consummation of the Mergers (subject to certain exceptions).|
|●||If we seek to consummate any debt financings (other than (i) non-distressed floor plan financings on customary terms and conditions and with an interest rate of not greater than 5% per annum, (ii) the replacement or refinancing of existing indebtedness where the replaced or refinanced indebtedness does not exceed the existing amount of indebtedness and are not on terms materially worse than the indebtedness being replaced or refinanced, and (iii) advances or other extensions of credit under a revolving credit facility or floor plan credit facility) after the consummation of the Mergers, Coliseum Capital Management, LLC shall be entitled to a right of first refusal to provide the funding necessary for such debt financings provided that it still holds an aggregate of at least $10 million of the Series A Preferred Stock. Coliseum Capital Management, LLC will have a period of 15 business days to notify us of its intention to exercise its right.|
|●||If we receive in excess of $1 million as a result of indemnification claims made in respect of certain breaches of representations and warranties of Lazy Days’ R.V. Center, Inc. under the Merger Agreement, the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock shall have a right to require us to utilize such amounts in excess of the $1 million to redeem their shares of Series A Preferred Stock for the liquidation preference of such shares.|
There are no sinking fund provisions applicable to our shares of Series A Preferred Stock.
Provisions of Delaware Law, the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws
Provisions of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), the Certificate of Incorporation, the Bylaws and other relevant documents described below could make it more difficult to acquire us by means of a tender offer, a proxy contest or otherwise, or to remove incumbent officers and directors. These provisions, summarized below, are expected to discourage types of coercive takeover practices and inadequate takeover bids and to encourage persons seeking to acquire control of us to first negotiate with us. We believe that the benefits of increased protection of our potential ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal to acquire or restructure us outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging takeover or acquisition proposals because, among other things, negotiation of these proposals could result in an improvement of their terms.
Delaware Anti-Takeover Statute. We have elected to be subject to Section 203 of the DGCL, an anti-takeover statute. In general, Section 203 prohibits a publicly held Delaware corporation from engaging in a “business combination” with an “interested stockholder” for a period of three years following the time the person became an interested stockholder, unless (with certain exceptions) the business combination or the transaction in which the person became an interested stockholder is approved in a prescribed manner. Generally, a “business combination” includes a merger, asset or stock sale, or other transaction resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder. Generally, an “interested stockholder” is a person who, together with affiliates and associates, owns (or within three years prior to the determination of interested stockholder status did own) 15 percent or more of a corporation’s voting stock. The existence of this provision would be expected to have an anti-takeover effect with respect to transactions not approved in advance by the Board of Directors, including discouraging attempts that might result in a premium over the market price for the shares of Common Stock.
Limitation of Liability and Indemnification of Officers and Directors. The DGCL authorizes corporations to limit or eliminate the personal liability of directors to corporations and their stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of directors’ fiduciary duties as directors. The Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws include provisions that indemnify, to the fullest extent allowable under the DGCL, the personal liability of directors or officers for monetary damages for actions taken as a director or officer of the Company, or for serving at our request as a director or officer or in another position at another corporation or enterprise, as the case may be. The Bylaws also provide that we must indemnify and advance expenses to our directors and officers, subject to our receipt of an undertaking from the indemnitee as may be required under the DGCL and such terms and conditions as are deemed appropriate by the Board. We are also expressly authorized to carry directors’ and officers’ insurance to protect the Company and our directors, officers, employees and agents from certain liabilities.
The limitation of liability and indemnification provisions in the Certificate of Incorporation and the Bylaws may discourage stockholders from bringing a lawsuit against directors for breach of their fiduciary duties. These provisions may also have the effect of reducing the likelihood of derivative litigation against directors and officers, even though such an action, if successful, might otherwise benefit us and our stockholders. We may be adversely affected to the extent that, in a class action or direct suit, we pay the costs of settlement and damage awards against directors and officers pursuant to these indemnification provisions.
Authorized but Unissued Shares of Common Stock. Our authorized but unissued shares of common stock will be available for future issuance without approval by the holders of common stock. We may use additional shares for a variety of corporate purposes, including future public offerings to raise additional capital, employee benefit plans and as consideration for or to finance future acquisitions, investments or other purposes. The existence of authorized but unissued shares of common stock could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of us by means of a proxy contest, tender offer, merger or otherwise.
Undesignated Preferred Stock. Our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws authorize 5,000,000 shares of undesignated preferred stock and 600,000 of these shares have been designated as Series A Preferred Stock. As a result, our Board of Directors may, without the approval of holders of common stock, issue 4,400,000 shares of preferred stock with super voting, special approval, dividend or other rights or preferences that could impede the success of any attempt to acquire us. These and other provisions may have the effect of deferring, delaying or discouraging hostile takeovers or changes in control or management of the Company.
Classified Board. As discussed above, our Board currently consists of seven (7) directors who are divided into three classes. Pursuant to the Certificate of Incorporation, directors in each class serve a three-year term. The terms of each class expire at successive annual meetings so that the stockholders elect one class of directors at each annual meeting. The classified board provisions in the Certificate of Incorporation could make it more difficult to acquire us by means of a proxy contest or to remove incumbent directors.
Exclusive Forum. Unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Company, (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee of the Company to the Company or the Company’s stockholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the DGCL or the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, or (iv) any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine shall be the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (or if the Court of Chancery does not have jurisdiction, another state court located within the State of Delaware, or if no state court located within the State of Delaware has jurisdiction, the federal district court for the District of Delaware) in all cases subject to the court’s having personal jurisdiction over the indispensable parties named as defendants. Section 27 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, provides for exclusive federal jurisdiction over suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder, and as such the exclusive jurisdiction clauses set forth above would not apply to such suits. Furthermore, Section 22 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, provides for concurrent jurisdiction for federal and state courts over all suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder, and as such the exclusive jurisdiction clauses set forth above would not apply to such suits.
