Exchange Note


On January 20, 2023, the Company entered into an Amendment No. 1 to Securities Purchase Agreement (“Amended SPA”) to that certain Purchase Agreement. The Amended SPA amends the notes attached as exhibits to the Purchase Agreement.


Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, on January 20, 2023, the Company exchanged the 2022 Convertible Promissory Notes, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, into 3% Senior Convertible Notes Due 2024 (the “2022 Convertible Exchange Notes”).


The 2022 Convertible Exchange Notes are identical in all material respects to the 2022 Convertible Promissory Notes, except that they (i) are issued pursuant to the Base Indenture (as defined below) and the First Supplemental Indenture (as defined below); (ii) have a maturity date of October 28, 2024; (iii) allow for the Acceleration of Installment Amounts not to exceed eight (8) times the Installment Amount with respect to the Installment Date related to the Current Acceleration; and (iv) modify the Acceleration Conversion Price. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein have the respective meanings set forth in the 2022 Convertible Exchange Notes attached as an exhibit to this report.


The 2022 Convertible Exchange Notes were issued pursuant to the first supplemental indenture (the “First Supplemental Indenture”), dated as of January 20, 2023, between the Company and Wilmington Savings Fund Society, FSB, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The First Supplemental Indenture supplements the indenture entered into by and between the Company and the Trustee, dated as of January 20, 2023 (the “Base Indenture” and, together with the First Supplemental Indenture, the “Indenture”). The Indenture has been qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, and the terms of the 2022 Convertible Exchange Notes include those set forth in the Indenture and those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act.


Subsequent to December 31, 2022, the Company issued approximately 2,105,000 shares as a result of Installment Conversion.


Airobotics Transaction


On January 23, 2023, the Company, completed the acquisition of Airobotics, pursuant to the Agreement of Merger, dated as of August 4, 2022 (the “Original Airobotics Agreement”), and that certain Amendment to Agreement of Merger, dated November 13, 2022 (the “Airobotics Amendment,” and together with the Original Airobotics Agreement, the “Airobotics Agreement”), by and among the Company, Talos Sub Ltd., an Israeli company and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), and Airobotics. In accordance with the terms of the Airobotics Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into Airobotics (the “Merger”), with Airobotics continuing as the surviving company of the Merger and as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.


At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each ordinary share of Airobotics, par value NIS 0.01 per share (the “Airobotics Ordinary Shares”), issued and outstanding (other than shares owned by Airobotics or its subsidiaries (dormant or otherwise) or by the Company or Merger Sub) was converted into, and exchanged for 0.16806 (the “Exchange Ratio”) fully paid and nonassessable shares of common stock of the Company common stock, without interest and subject to applicable tax withholdings (“Merger Consideration”)All fractional shares of the Company common stock that would have otherwise been issued to a holder of Airobotics Ordinary Shares as part of the Merger Consideration were rounded up to the nearest whole share based on the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock issued to such holder of Airobotics Ordinary Shares. Holders of Airobotics Ordinary Shares received approximately 2.8 million shares as consideration (excluding approximately 1.7 million shares underlying equity awards to be outstanding following the Merger).


As provided in the Airobotics Agreement, each outstanding option, warrant or other right, whether vested or unvested, to purchase Airobotics Ordinary Shares (each, an “Airobotics Stock Option,” and collectively, the “Airobotics Stock Options”) issued pursuant to the Airobotics Ltd. 2015 Israeli Share Option Plan and 2020 Incentive Equity Plan (the “Airobotics Plans”), was assumed by Ondas and converted as of the Effective Time into an option, warrant or right, as applicable, to purchase shares of Company common stock. Subject to the terms of the relevant Airobotics Stock Option, each Airobotics Stock Option is deemed to constitute an option, warrant, or other right, as applicable, to purchase, on substantially the same terms and conditions as were applicable under such Airobotics Stock Option, a number of shares of Company common stock equal to the number of shares of Company common stock (rounded up to the nearest whole share) that the holder of such Airobotics Stock Option would have been entitled to receive pursuant to the Merger had such holder exercised such option, warrant, or right to purchase full Airobotics Ordinary Shares immediately prior to the Effective Time at a price per share of Company common stock (rounded down to the nearest whole cent) equal to (i) the former per share exercise price for Airobotics Ordinary Shares otherwise purchasable pursuant to such Airobotics Stock Option, divided by (ii) the Exchange Ratio.


As a result of the Merger, the Company will be dual listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (“TASE”). The first trading day of the Company’s shares on TASE was January 26, 2023.
