Exhibit 10.1


THIS AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO THE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT TRUST AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”) is made as of September 9, 2019, by and between Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp., a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company”), and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York corporation (the “Trustee”). Capitalized terms contained in this Amendment, but not specifically defined in this Amendment, shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Original Agreement (as defined below).

WHEREAS, on September 18, 2017, the Company consummated an initial public offering (the “Offering”) of units of the Company, each of which is composed of one of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (“Ordinary Shares”), and one-third of one warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Ordinary Share;

WHEREAS, $690,000,000 of the gross proceeds of the Offering (including $24,150,000, of underwriters’ deferred discount) and sale of the Private Placement Warrants (as defined in the Underwriting Agreement) were delivered to the Trustee to be deposited and held in the segregated Trust Account located in the United States for the benefit of the Company and the holders of Ordinary Shares included in the Units issued in the Offering pursuant to the investment management trust agreement made effective as of September 13, 2017 by and between the Company and the Trustee (the “Original Agreement”);

WHEREAS, the Company has sought the approval of the holders of its Ordinary Shares and holders of its Class B ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class B Ordinary Shares”), at an extraordinary general meeting to: (i) extend the date before which the Company must complete a business combination from September 18, 2019 to December 18, 2019 (the “Extension Amendment”) and (ii) extend the date on which the Trustee must liquidate the Trust Account if the Company has not completed its initial business combination from September 18, 2019 to December 18, 2019 (the “Trust Amendment”);

WHEREAS, holders of at least sixty-five percent (65%) of the then issued and outstanding Ordinary Shares and Class B Ordinary Shares, voting together as a single class, approved the Extension Amendment and the Trust Amendment; and

WHEREAS, the parties desire to amend the Original Agreement to, among other things, reflect amendments to the Original Agreement contemplated by the Trust Amendment.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1. Amendment to Trust Agreement. Section 1(i) of the Original Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

“(i) Commence liquidation of the Trust Account only after and promptly after (x) receipt of, and only in accordance with, the terms of a letter from the Company (“Termination Letter”) in a form substantially similar to that attached hereto as either Exhibit A or Exhibit B signed on behalf of the Company by its Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, General Counsel, Secretary or Chairman of the board of directors (the “Board”) of the Company or other authorized officer of the Company, and complete the

liquidation of the Trust Account and distribute the Property in the Trust Account, including interest (which interest shall be net of any taxes payable and less up to $100,000 of interest that may be released to the Company to pay dissolution expenses, it being understood that the Trustee has no obligation to monitor or question the Company’s position that an allocation has been made for taxes payable), only as directed in the Termination Letter and the other documents referred to therein; provided, that, in the case a Termination Letter in the form of Exhibit A is received, or (y) upon December 18, 2019, if a Termination Letter has not been received by the Trustee prior to such date, in which case the Trust Account shall be liquidated in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Termination Letter attached as Exhibit B and the Property in the Trust Account, including interest (which interest shall be net of any taxes payable and less up to $100,000 of interest that may be released to the Company to pay dissolution expenses), shall be distributed to the Public Shareholders of record as of such date; provided, however, that in the event the Trustee receives a Termination Letter in a form substantially similar to Exhibit B hereto, or if the Trustee begins to liquidate the Property because it has received no such Termination Letter by December 18, 2019, the Trustee shall keep the Trust Account open until twelve (12) months following the date the Property has been distributed to the Public Shareholders;”.

2. Miscellaneous Provisions.
