FAQ update 11/10

 

Are there any contingencies to the deal? Is this deal pending approval of shareholders?

 

There are some contingencies to the deal, including the receipt of certain regulatory approvals and a Metromile shareholder vote. The deal is expected to close in the second quarter of 2022. In the meantime, we do need to continue operating as a distinct and separate company from Lemonade.

 

What about unvested options? Do we still get 19:1?

 

Unvested Metromile options will convert into unvested Lemonade options based on the 19:1 exchange ratio when the deal closes and keep their existing vesting schedule. What is important to keep in mind is that the 19:1 exchange ratio refers to the number of shares—which will change—not the intrinsic value of the grant—which does not.

 

Does the exercise price for options change?

 

Yes. The exercise price of Metromile options will be adjusted based on the exchange ratio (exercise price multiplied by 19). This adjustment is necessary to retain the intrinsic value of the options, as measured immediately prior to and immediately following the closing.

 

Does this news change our trading window?

 

For now our open trading window and blackout schedule will stay the same, provided you were not aware of the deal prior to signing and do not have MNPI regarding Metromile. We’ll be sure to update you if that changes as we approach the close of the deal.

 

Can we buy Lemonade stock now?

 

Not right now, no. There are a few reasons why MM-ers are restricted from trading Lemonade:

 

1.You knew about the deal before Dan shared it with the whole company on Monday.
2.You have MNPI about Metromile or Lemonade.
3.It’s a blackout period for Metromile.

 

At the moment, #3 applies to all of us. When the blackout period ends, two trading days after our earnings, it’s possible that you will not fall into either groups 1 or 2, at which point you could legally trade Lemonade shares. If you fall into group 1 or 2, though, this restriction will not end with the blackout period, and the compliance team will let you know when it’s ok to trade in Lemonade securities.

 

 

 

 

Do our blackout periods now apply to Lemonade stock as well?

 

They do—anyone in a Metromile blackout period may not trade in Lemonade securities during that same blackout period (and also for a couple of other reasons, as outlined above).

 

Is the Tempe office going to stay open or close?

 

For now, the Tempe and SF offices will continue to move through the office reopening phases until we learn more about our facilities’ needs.

 

What will happen to our anniversary gifts?

 

Our anniversary gifts will continue at least until close. We will evaluate the gifts to align with Lemonade's benefits and recognition program as we eventually become one unified team.
