PROXY STATEMENT


ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON DECEMBER 8, 2021
This proxy statement is furnished to the holders of ordinary shares, of no par value (the "Shares"), of Innoviz Technologies Ltd. in connection with the annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company to be held at the Company's offices at 2 Amal Street, Afek Industrial Park Rosh HaAin, 4809202, Israel on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. Israel time (9:00 a.m. Eastern time), and thereafter as it may be adjourned from time to time (the "Meeting"). Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this Proxy Statement to "Innoviz," the "Company," "we" or "our" refer to Innoviz Technologies Ltd.
At the Meeting, the following resolutions will be proposed for adoption by the shareholders (each, a "Proposal"):
1. Approval of the re-election of each of Aharon Aharon and Orit Stav, as Class I directors of the Company to hold office until the close of the annual general meeting of the Company in 2024, and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified;
2. Approval of an amendment to the articles of association of the Company; and
3. Approval and ratification of the re-appointment of Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young, as the independent auditors of the Company for the period ending at the close of the next annual general meeting.
In addition, the shareholders will be requested to consider at the Meeting the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Shareholders Entitled to Vote
Only holders of record of Shares at the close of business on November 2, 2021 (the "Record Date") are entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the Meeting.
As of November 2, 2021, the Company had 133,694,399 issued and outstanding Shares. Each Share is entitled to one vote on each matter to be voted on at the Meeting. The votes of all shareholders voting on a matter are counted and abstentions are not taken into account (other than for quorum purposes).
Proxies
All shareholders who are unable to attend the Meeting in person are requested to complete, date and sign the enclosed form of proxy and return it promptly in the pre-addressed envelope provided.
If you hold ordinary shares in "street name," that is, you are an underlying beneficial holder who holds ordinary shares through a bank, broker or other nominee, the voting process will be based on your directing the bank, broker or other nominee to vote the ordinary shares in accordance with the voting instructions on your voting instruction card. Because a beneficial owner is not a shareholder of record, you may not vote those shares directly at the Meeting unless you obtain a "legal proxy" from the bank, broker or nominee that holds your shares, giving you the right to vote the shares at the Meeting.
Please follow the instructions on the proxy card or voting instruction card received from your bank, broker or nominee. You may also be able to submit voting instructions to a bank, broker or nominee by phone or via the Internet if your voting instruction card describes such voting methods. Please be certain to have your control number from your voting instruction card ready for use in providing your voting instructions.
It is important for a shareholder that holds ordinary shares through a bank or broker to instruct its bank or broker how to vote its shares if the shareholder wants its shares to count for the Proposal.
Upon the receipt of a properly executed proxy in the form enclosed herewith, the persons named as proxies therein will vote the Shares covered thereby in accordance with the directions of the shareholder executing such proxy. Subject to applicable law and the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market, in the absence of such instructions, the Shares represented by properly executed and received proxies will be voted "FOR" all of the proposed resolutions to be presented at the Meeting for which the Company's board of directors (the "Board") recommends a "FOR".
Meeting Agenda
In accordance with the Israeli Companies Law 5759-1999, and regulations promulgated thereunder (the "Companies Law"), any shareholder of the Company holding at least one percent of the outstanding voting rights of the Company for the Meeting may submit to the Company a proposed additional agenda item for the Meeting, to the Company's offices, c/o Dana Nutkevitch, General Counsel, at 2 Amal Street, Afek Industrial Park Rosh HaAin, 4809202, Israel, no later than Wednesday, November 10, 2021. To the extent that there are any additional agenda items that the Board determines to add as a result of any such submission, the Company will publish an updated agenda and proxy card with respect to the Meeting, no later than Wednesday, November 17, 2021, which will be furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") on Form 6-K, and will be made available to the public on the Commission's website at http://www.sec.gov. Shareholders are also able to review the proxy statement at the "Investors" portion of our website, https://ir.innoviz.tech/ or at our headquarters at 2 Amal Street, Afek Industrial Park Rosh HaAin, 4809202, Israel, upon prior notice and during regular working hours (telephone number: +972-74-700-3699) until the date of the Meeting.
Expenses and Solicitation
The Company expects to solicit proxies by mail and to mail this proxy statement and the accompanying proxy card to shareholders on or about November 10, 2021. This proxy statement and the accompanying proxy card are also available to the public at the Commission's website at http://www.sec.gov and at the "Investors" portion of our website, https://ir.innoviz.tech/.
All costs of solicitation of proxies will be borne by the Company. In addition to solicitations by mail, certain of the Company's directors, officers and regular employees, without additional remuneration, may solicit proxies by telephone, telegraph and personal interviews. Brokers, custodians and fiduciaries will be requested to forward proxy soliciting material to the beneficial owners of Shares held in their names, and the Company will reimburse them for their reasonable out-of-pocket costs.
Quorum and Voting Requirements
The quorum required consists of two or more shareholders who are present in person or proxy (or who have delivered a proxy card indicating their manner of voting) and who together hold or represent Shares conferring in the aggregate at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the voting power in the Company. For this purpose, abstaining shareholders shall be deemed present at the meeting. If a quorum is not present within half an hour of the time designated for the Meeting, the Meeting shall be adjourned to Wednesday, December 15, 2021, at the same time and place. At the adjourned Meeting, any number of shareholders who are present in person or by proxy, or who have delivered a proxy card, shall constitute a quorum.
The approval of each of the Proposals requires the affirmative vote of the Company's shareholders holding at least a majority of the Shares present, in person or by proxy, and voting on the matter.
How You Can Vote
You can vote either in person at the Meeting or by authorizing another person as your proxy, whether or not you attend the Meeting. You may vote in any of the manners below:

By Internet-If you are a shareholder of record, you can submit a proxy over the Internet by logging on to the website listed on the enclosed proxy card, entering your control number located on the enclosed proxy card and submitting a proxy by following the on-screen prompts. If you hold shares in "street name," and if the brokerage firm, bank or other similar nominee that holds your shares offers Internet voting, you may follow the instructions shown on the enclosed voting instruction form in order to submit your proxy over the Internet;
2

If you hold shares in "street name," and if the brokerage firm, bank or other similar organization that holds your shares offers telephone voting, you may follow the instructions shown on the enclosed voting instruction form in order to submit a proxy by telephone; or

By mail-If you are a shareholder of record, you can submit a proxy by completing, dating, signing and returning your proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided. You should sign your name exactly as it appears on the enclosed proxy card. If you are signing in a representative capacity (for example, as a guardian, executor, trustee, custodian, attorney or officer of a corporation), please indicate your name and title or capacity. If you hold shares in "street name," you have the right to direct your brokerage firm, bank or other similar organization on how to vote your shares, and the brokerage firm, bank or other similar organization is required to vote your shares in accordance with your instructions.

As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, trustee or nominee how to vote, and you are also invited to attend the Meeting.

PROPOSAL NO. 1
APPROVAL OF THE RE-ELECTION OF EACH OF AHARON AHARON AND
ORIT STAV, AS CLASS I DIRECTORS OF THE COMPANY TO HOLD OFFICE
UNTIL THE CLOSE OF THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE
COMPANY OF 2024
At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to approve the re-election of each of Aharon Aharon and Orit Stav as Class I directors of the Company to hold office until the close of the annual general meeting of the Company of 2024, and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified. The Board has determined that each of the director nominees, qualifies as an "independent director" under the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.
There are currently eight directors serving on the Board, two of whom are standing for re-election or election under this Proposal No. 1. The Class I directors attended 100% or more of the meetings of the Board and its committees on which they served, held since the previous annual general meeting.
Set out below are details on the directors standing for re-election or election:
Aharon Aharon joined the Board upon the completion of the Business Combination. Since 2017, Mr. Aharon has served as the Chief Executive Officer of the Israel Innovation Authority, an independent public entity that operates for the benefit of the Israeli innovation ecosystem and Israeli economy as a whole. Prior to joining the Israeli Innovation Authority, Mr. Aharon served as the Corporate Vice President of Hardware Technologies and General Manager of Apple Israel from 2011 to 2017. Prior to his time at Apple, Mr. Aharon served as the Chief Executive Officer of Camero, a leading provider of UWB imaging radars, from 2004 to 2010 (when the company was acquired). In addition, Mr. Aharon served as Chairman of the board of directors of Discretix Technologies from 2003 to 2010 (Discretix was acquired by ARM in 2014). From 2001 to 2003, Mr. Aharon was the Chief Executive Officer of Seabridge. Prior to joining Seabridge, Mr. Aharon was the Chief Operating Officer of Zoran, a Silicon Valley-based, leading provider of digital solutions in the digital entertainment and digital imaging market. Mr. Aharon started his professional career at IBM Research and has a B.Sc in Computer Engineering and a M.Sc in Electrical Engineering from the Israel Institute of Technology.
Orit Stav joined the Board after the completion of the Business Combination. Ms. Stav is a seasoned investment manager with 20 years of experience in the Technology, Venture Capital, and Private Equity sectors. She currently serves as a member of the board of directors of the following companies: Camtek Ltd., Doral Renewable Energy Resources Ltd., Hadasit Bio-holdings Ltd., YSB Group HomeBioGaz, A.Luzon Real Estate and Finance Ltd. and ORT Technologies Ltd. Since 2015, Ms. Stav has served as a Managing Partner at Israel Innovation Partners. Prior to that, she represented Siemens Venture Capital in Israel, and led investments in technology startups. Ms. Stav holds a Master of Business Administration from Hertfordshire University, UK, and a Bachelor's degree in Arts (Economics and Management) from the Tel Aviv University.
Each of the director nominees named above has certified to us that he or she complies with all requirements under the Companies Law for serving as a director. Such certifications will be available for inspection at the Meeting.
For information on the compensation payable to our directors, please see our annual report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, filed on Form 20-F with the Commission on April 21, 2021 (the "Annual Report").
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
"RESOLVED, to approve the re-election of each of Aharon Aharon and Orit Stav as Class I directors of the Company to hold office until the close of the annual general meeting of the Company of 2024, and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified."
The Board recommends shareholders vote
"FOR" Proposal No. 1

PROPOSAL NO. 2
APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO THE ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION OF
THE COMPANY
At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to approve an amendment the Company's articles of association ("Articles") such that the following Article 63 shall be added to the Articles:
"JURISDICTION
63. (a) Unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, with respect to any causes of action arising under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 as amended, against any person or entity, including such claims brought against the Company, its directors, officers, employees, advisors, attorneys, accountants or underwriters, the federal district courts of the United States of America shall be the exclusive forum for the resolution of any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended; and (b) unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the competent courts in Tel Aviv, Israel shall be the exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Company, (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee of the Company to the Company or the Company's shareholders, or (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Companies Law or the Securities Law. Any person or entity purchasing or otherwise acquiring or holding any interest in shares of the Company shall be deemed to have notice of and consented to these provisions. This Article 63 shall not apply to causes of action arising under the U.S. Exchange Act of 1934, as amended."
We believe that adopting the amendment is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders for the following reasons:

The federal forum selection provision allows for the consolidation of multi-jurisdiction litigation and reduces the risk that the outcome of cases in multiple jurisdictions could be inconsistent;

The amendment will help avoid state court forum shopping and provide for efficiencies in managing the procedural aspects of securities litigation; and

The amendment restates the current provision that all intra-corporate disputes be litigated in the State of Israel, where the Company is incorporated and whose law governs such disputes. Moreover, the Israeli courts have developed considerable expertise in dealing with corporate law issues involving Israeli listed companies, as well as a substantial and influential body of case law construing Israel's corporate law and long-standing precedent regarding corporate governance.
The amendment will only regulate the forum where shareholders may file certain claims. It does not affect the remedies available if such claims are successful. Moreover, the Company will retain the ability to consent to an alternative forum in circumstances where the Company determines that its interests and those of its shareholders are best served by permitting a particular dispute to proceed in a forum other than the federal district courts or State of Israel, as applicable.
Given these considerations, the Board has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company that the Company's articles of association be amended to include these exclusive forum selection provisions. There is, however, uncertainty as to whether a court would enforce these provisions, and although current case law indicates it is enforceable, there is no certainty that this will remain the case in the future.
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
"RESOLVED, to approve the amendment to the articles of association of the Company, as detailed in the Proxy Statement, dated November 3, 2021."
The Board recommends shareholders vote

PROPOSAL NO. 3
APPROVAL AND RATIFICATION OF THE RE-APPOINTMENT OF KOST
FORER GABBAY & KASIERER, A MEMBER OF ERNST & YOUNG, AS THE
INDEPENDENT AUDITORS OF THE COMPANY FOR THE PERIOD ENDING
AT THE CLOSE OF THE NEXT ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Under the Companies Law and our articles of association, the shareholders of our Company are authorized to appoint the Company's independent auditors. Under our articles of association, the Board (or a committee, if it is so authorized by the Board) is authorized to determine the independent auditor's remuneration. In addition, the approval by the Company's audit committee of the independent auditor's re-appointment and remuneration is required under the corporate governance rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.
Following the recommendation by the Company's audit committee and the Board, it is proposed that Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young Global, be reappointed as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending on December 31, 2021 and until the close of the next annual general meeting, and to authorize the Board, upon recommendation of the Company's audit committee, to determine the remuneration of such independent public accountants in accordance with the volume and nature of their services. Such auditors served as the Company's auditors for fiscal year 2020 and have no relationship with the Company or with any affiliate of the Company, except as described in the Annual Report. Information on fees paid to the Company's independent public accountants may be found in the Annual Report.
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
"RESOLVED, to approve and ratify the reappointment of Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young Global, an independent accounting firm, as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending on December 31, 2021 and until the close of the next annual general meeting, and to authorize the Board, upon recommendation of the Company's audit committee, to determine the remuneration of such independent public accountants in accordance with the volume and nature of their services."
