Notice of Warrant Redemption- END (NYSE: CHPT, CHPT.WS)
July 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby gives notice that it is redeeming, at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on July 6, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”), all of the Company’s outstanding Public Warrants (as defined in the Warrant Agreement) (the “Warrants”) to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”) for a redemption price of $0.01 per Warrant (the “Redemption Price”), that were issued under the Warrant Agreement, dated as of July 25, 2019 (the “Warrant Agreement”), by and between the Company’s predecessor company, Switchback Energy Acquisition Corporation (“Switchback”), and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent (the “Warrant Agent”), as part of the units sold in Switchback’s initial public offering (the “IPO”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Common Stock for a purchase price of $11.50 per whole share, subject to adjustment. Any Warrants that remain unexercised at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date will be void and no longer exercisable and their holders will have no rights with respect to those Warrants, except to receive the Redemption Price or as otherwise described in this notice for holders who hold their Warrants in “street name.” Warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock that were issued under the Warrant Agreement in private placements simultaneously with the closing of the IPO and the sale of over-allotment units, as well as in connection with working capital loans made by NGP Switchback, LLC to Switchback and are still held by the initial holders thereof or their permitted transferees are not subject to this notice of redemption.
The Warrants are listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “CHPT WS” and the Common Stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “CHPT.” On June 3, 2021, the last reported sale price of the Warrants was $14.80 and the last reported sale price of the Common Stock was $26.27 per share. We expect that the New York Stock Exchange will suspend trading in the Warrants prior to the opening of trading on the Redemption Date and that the last day of trading will be the immediately preceding trading day, which is expected to be July 2, 2021.
TERMS OF REDEMPTION; CESSATION OF RIGHTS
The rights of the Warrant holders to exercise their Warrants will terminate immediately prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date. At 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date and thereafter, the Warrants will no longer be exercisable and the holders of unexercised Warrants will have no rights with respect to those Warrants, except to receive the Redemption Price or as otherwise described in this notice for holders who hold their Warrants in “street name.” We encourage you to consult with your broker, financial advisor and/or tax advisor to consider whether or not to exercise your Warrants. Note that the act of exercising is VOLUNTARY, meaning holders must instruct their broker to submit the Warrants for exercise.
The Company is exercising this right to redeem the Warrants pursuant to Section 6 of the Warrant Agreement. Pursuant to Section 6.1 of the Warrant Agreement, the Company has the right to redeem all of the outstanding Warrants if the last sales price of the Common Stock reported has been at least $18.00 per share on each of twenty (20) trading days within the thirty (30) trading-day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which a notice of redemption is given. The last sales price of the Common Stock has been at least $18.00 per share on each of twenty (20) trading days within the thirty (30) trading-day period ending on June 1, 2021 (which is the third trading day prior to the date of this redemption notice).
Warrant holders have until 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date to exercise their Warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock. Warrants may only be exercised for cash. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Common Stock at a cash price of $11.50 per whole share (the “Exercise Price”).
Payment of the exercise funds may be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds. Wire instructions will be provided to the Depository Trust Company and will otherwise be provided upon request.
Those who hold their Warrants in “street name” should immediately contact their broker to determine their broker’s procedure for exercising their Warrants since the process to exercise is VOLUNTARY.
Persons who are holders of record of their Warrants may exercise their Warrants by sending:
|1.||The Warrant Certificate;|
|2.||A fully and properly completed “Election to Purchase” (a form of which is attached hereto as Annex A), duly executed and indicating, among of things, the number of Warrants being exercised; and|
|3.||The exercise funds via wire transfer,|
Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company

New York, NY 10004
Attention: Compliance Department
Telephone: (212) 509-4000
The method of delivery of the Warrants is at the option and risk of the holder, but if mail is used, registered mail properly insured is suggested.
The Warrant Certificate, the fully and properly completed Election to Purchase and the exercise funds must be received by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date. Subject to the following paragraph, any failure to deliver a fully and properly completed Election to Purchase together with the related Warrant Certificate and exercise funds before such time will result in such holder’s Warrants being redeemed at the Redemption Price of $0.01 per Warrant and not exercised.
For holders of Warrants who hold their Warrants in “street name,” provided that the Exercise Price for the Warrants being exercised and a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery and the exercise funds are received by the Warrant Agent prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date, broker-dealers shall have two business days from the Redemption Date, or 5:00 p.m. New York City time on July 6, 2021, to deliver the Warrants to the Warrant Agent. Any such Warrant received without an Election to Purchase and a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery having been duly executed and fully and properly completed or the exercise funds being submitted will be deemed to have been delivered for redemption at the Redemption Price of $0.01 per Warrant, and not for exercise.
A prospectus covering the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants (and the supplements thereto) is included in a registration statement filed with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration No. 333-253759) (the “SEC”). The SEC also maintains an Internet website that contains a copy of this prospectus. The address of this site is www.sec.report. Alternatively, to obtain a copy of the prospectus (and the supplements thereto), please visit our investor relations website (investors.chargepoint.com).
Payment of the Redemption Price will be made by the Company upon presentation and surrender of a Warrant for payment after 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date. Those who hold their shares in “street name” should contact their broker to determine their broker’s procedure for redeeming their Warrants.
