SIGNA International Sports Holding GmbH (SISH), SISH Beteiligung GmbH & Co. KG (SISH KG), AEON Co., Ltd. (AEON), Evergrow Luxembourg SCS (Evergrow), R+V Versicherung AG (RVV) and R+V Lebensversicherung Aktiengesellschaft (RVLV and together with SISH, SISH KG, AEON, Evergrow and RVV, the Initial Shareholders) are the sole shareholders of SSU as of the date of this Agreement. SSU is active in the sports commerce and tech platform business focusing on the bike, tennis, outdoor and team sports sector.
SSU intends to enter into a series of transactions (the Business Combination) with, among other entities, Yucaipa, an entity which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE), for purposes of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination as further described under recital (J) below.
On or around the date of this Agreement, SISH and SSU will enter into a business combination agreement with Yucaipa and several other entities substantially in the form as attached hereto as Exhibit A (the BCA) setting forth the terms of the Business Combination.
SIGNA Sport Online GmbH, SIGNA AppVentures GmbH, Tennis-Point GmbH and Score Invest SAS are, among others, certain subsidiaries of SSU. The individuals and the entity set forth in Exhibit B, herein referred to as Minority Shareholders, hold certain direct or, through SIGNA Beteiligung I UG (haftungsbeschränkt) & Co. KG as pooling vehicle (the Pooling Vehicle), indirect minority interests in such SSU subsidiaries as set forth in Exhibit B (the Minority Shareholdings). Pursuant to certain agreements entered into by the Minority Shareholders with inter alios SISH and the Company (the Roll-Up Agreements) prior to the date hereof, the Minority Shareholders have agreed and undertaken, after signing of the BCA and prior to the Share Exchange, to contribute the Minority Shareholdings to SSU against issuance of new shares in SSU to the Minority Shareholders by way of a capital increase in kind of the share capital of SSU (the Roll-up). Prior to such Roll-up, the Pooling Vehicle shall be dissolved and the Company Shares held by the Pooling Vehicle on behalf of the Minority Shareholders shall be transferred to the respective Minority Shareholders and such transferred Company Shares will also be subject to the Roll-up. The Roll-up shall be completed after signing of the BCA and in any event in advance of the Share Exchange.
The Company, as borrower, entered into a EUR 50,000,000 convertible loan agreement with SISH, as original lender, on 20 December 2019 (notarial roll of deeds no. 461/2019 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main) (the SISH Convertible Loan Agreement). Under a certain purchase and contractual assignment
|agreement (Vertragsübernahme) dated 14 December 2020 (notarial roll of deeds no. 348/2020 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main), the SISH Convertible Loan Agreement was transferred and assigned from SISH to BBL in a partial amount of EUR 10,000,000 (plus accrued interest) whereby BBL has the right to transfer its rights and obligations relating to such portion of the SISH Convertible Loan Agreement to either or both of BL die Bayerische Lebensversicherung AG and BA die Bayerische Lebensversicherung AG, in each case, in a minimum denomination of at least EUR 5,000,000. As of the date of this Agreement, BBL has not made use of such right. In addition, under a certain purchase and contractual assignment agreement (Vertragsübernahme) dated 20 January 2021 (notarial roll of deeds no. 16/2021 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main), the SISH Convertible Loan Agreement was transferred and assigned from SISH to INGBE Stiftung (INGBE) in a partial amount of EUR 40,000,000 (plus accrued interest) and, under two certain purchase and contractual assignment agreements (Vertragsübernahme) dated 16 March 2021 (notarial roll of deeds no. 82/2021 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main), was subsequently transferred and assigned from INGBE to each of Arrow Holding AG (Arrow Holding) and Guardians Invest AG (Guardians Invest) in a partial amount of EUR 5,000,000 each (plus accrued interest).|
SSU, as borrower, entered into a EUR 25,000,000 convertible loan agreement with RSI SCS, SICAV-RAIF (formerly: RAG-S Lending SCS, SICAV-RAIF) (RAG-S, and together with BBL, INGBE, Arrow Holding and Guardians Invest, the Convertible Loan Lenders) as original lender, on 20 December 2019 (notarial roll of deeds no. 461/2019 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main) (the RAG-S Convertible Loan Agreement, and together with the SISH Convertible Loan Agreement, the Convertible Loan Agreements).
Pursuant to certain irrevocable commitments entered into by the Convertible Loan Lenders with SISH on or prior to the date hereof, the Convertible Loan Lenders have agreed and undertaken, after signing of the BCA and prior to closing of the Business Combination, to convert the entire loan amount granted to SSU under the Convertible Loan Agreements (plus accrued interest) into new common shares in SSU, in the nominal amount of EUR 1.00 per share, by way of a capital increase in kind of the share capital of SSU (the Conversion). The Conversion shall be completed sufficiently in advance of the Business Combination.
Upon the occurrence of the Roll-up and the Conversion, the Minority Shareholders and the Convertible Loan Lenders, respectively, will become shareholders of SSU (the Future Shareholders, and together with the Initial Shareholders, the Shareholders).
SISH, with the participation of SSU, has entered into certain investment agreements with the SSU minority shareholders, i.e. (i) with AEON on 20 December 2018 (notarial roll of deeds no. 420/2018 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main), (ii) with Evergrow Asia Ltd. under participation of Harng Central Department Store Ltd. on 20 December 2018 (notarial roll of deeds no. 422/2018 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main) and (iii) with RVV and RVLV on 16 September 2019 (notarial roll of deeds no. 296/2019 by public notary Dr. Thorsten Reinhard, Frankfurt am Main), each as amended (collectively, the Investment Agreements). The Investment Agreements provide that any transfer restrictions pursuant to the respective Investment Agreements (e.g., among others, lock-ups, tag-along rights, drag-along rights, rights of first refusal as well as call and put options) shall not apply to any transfer of Company Shares in the course or after the so-called De-SPAC transaction. Such transfer restrictions also do not continue to apply with regards to the TopCo Shares (as defined below) following the implementation of the Transaction (as defined below) and the TopCo Shares are not subject to any transfer restrictions. This paragraph, for the avoidance of doubt, does not limit the rights arising from the respective Investment Agreements regarding the internal relationship between the parties of the respective Investment Agreements.
Pursuant to the BCA, the Business Combination will, subject to the terms and conditions thereof (including any amendments, supplements or other modifications thereto in accordance with its terms) and among other transactions contemplated thereby, be implemented substantially as follows:

(ii) Yucaipa will merge into a newly formed and wholly owned subsidiary of TopCo, incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company, (Merger Sub) with the Merger Sub surviving the merger and the shareholders of Yucaipa receiving Class A ordinary shares in Merger Sub through an exchange agent who will contribute such shares to TopCo against issuance of TopCo Shares in exchange for the shares in Merger Sub;
(iii) as provided in Section 4.5 of that certain Warrant Agreement, dated as of 6 August 2020, by and between Yucaipa and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, after giving effect to the Business Combination, the warrants in Yucaipa will no longer be exercisable for shares in Yucaipa but instead will be exercisable (subject to the terms and conditions of such agreement, as amended) for TopCo Shares;
(iv) certain investors will have, concurrently with the execution of the BCA, agreed to subscribe for and purchase a certain number of TopCo Shares in exchange for contribution of a cash amount on the Closing Date (as such term is defined in the BCA), immediately after the consummation of the merger set forth in clause (ii) above (the Roll-up, the Conversion and the Business Combination including the aforementioned transactions under clauses (i) and (ii) above and the other transactions contemplated by the BCA, all as further described in detail in the BCA, collectively the Transaction); and
(v) on or about the Closing Date, the TopCo Shares will be listed on the NYSE. The (pre-closing) equity valuation of SSU, on the basis of which the Transaction is to be consummated, is USD 2,461,891,680 (the SSU Equity Value) (as further set forth in the Cap Table).
It is in the Shareholders interest that the Transaction, including for the avoidance of doubt the Conversion and the Roll-up, is implemented substantially as described above and in the BCA.
In order to facilitate the implementation of the Transaction each of the Initial Shareholders, Convertible Loan Lenders and Minority Shareholders has (i), prior to the date hereof, duly executed and delivered powers of attorney to SISH or to another recipient of their choice, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D and has (ii) duly executed and delivered or will duly execute and deliver powers of attorney to NautaDutilh N.V. or another recipient of their choice, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E, or in the form of a sub-power of attorney with the respective scope, respectively, permitting the respective authorized person (i) to execute and deliver any agreements to which such Shareholder is a party to in connection with the Transaction (including, but not limited to, the Dutch Deeds of Issue or the German Share Transfer Deed, each such term as defined in the BCA),
|(ii) to take all necessary or desirable actions on behalf of such Shareholder in connection with the transactions contemplated under and as set forth in the BCA and the Transaction Documents (as such term is defined in the BCA) to the extent applicable to such Shareholder (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the execution of this Agreement on each Shareholders behalf), (iii) to convene and conduct shareholders meetings of the Company (including participating and exercising voting rights attached to the Company Shares) in accordance with the governing documents of the Company and for the purpose of obtaining the requisite consent for the Share Exchange and (iv) to support the transactions contemplated by the BCA and the other Transaction Documents (including by way of restrictions on the sale, disposition or transfer of the Company Shares held by such Shareholder).|
