06/02/2020 | 04:53pm EDT

Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On June 2, 2020, VectoIQ Acquisition Corp. (the "Company") held a special meeting in lieu of the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders (the "Special Meeting") in connection with the proposed business combination (the "Business Combination") of the Company and Nikola Corporation ("Nikola"), as described in the proxy statement, prospectus and information statement filed by the Company with the SEC on May 8, 2020 and incorporated herein by reference (the "Proxy Statement"). Present at the Special Meeting were holders of 19,464,559 shares of the Company's common stock (the "Common Stock") in person or by proxy, representing 65.67% of the voting power of the Common Stock as of May 8, 2020, the record date for the Special Meeting (the "Record Date"), and constituting a quorum for the transaction of business. As of the Record Date, there were 29,640,000 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.

At the Special Meeting, the Company's stockholders approved the Business Combination Proposal, the Amendments to VectoIQ's Certificate of Incorporation Proposal (including each of the sub-proposals), the election of each director nominee pursuant to the Election of Directors Proposal, the Stock Incentive Plan Proposal, the Nasdaq Proposal, and the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal, in each case as defined and described in greater detail in the Proxy Statement.

The approval of the Business Combination Proposal and the Amendments to VectoIQ's Certificate of Incorporation Proposal required the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of all then outstanding shares of the Common Stock entitled to vote thereon at the Special Meeting. The approval of the Stock Incentive Plan Proposal, the Nasdaq Proposal and the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal required the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of the Common Stock that were voted at the Special Meeting. The approval of the election of each director nominee pursuant to the Election of Directors Proposal required the affirmative vote of the holders of a plurality of the outstanding shares of the Common Stock entitled to vote and actually cast thereon at the Special Meeting. The Adjournment Proposal, as defined and described in greater detail in the Proxy Statement, was not presented to the Company's stockholders as the Business Combination Proposal, the Amendments to VectoIQ's Certificate of Incorporation Proposal, the election of each director nominee pursuant to the Election of Directors Proposal, the Stock Incentive Plan Proposal, the Nasdaq Proposal, and the Employee Stock Purchase Plan Proposal each received a sufficient number of votes for approval.

No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.



                                       5





Forward-Looking Statements



This Current Report on Form 8-K includes certain statements that are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as "believe," "may," "will," "estimate," "continue," "anticipate," "intend," "expect," "should," "would," "plan," "predict," "potential," "seem," "seek," "future," "outlook," and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company's and Nikola's ability to consummate the Proposed Transactions; the expected timing of completion of the Proposed Transactions and the timing of the expected commencement of the trading of the combined company's Common Stock and Warrants on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. These statements are based on various assumptions and on the current expectations of Nikola's and the Company's management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of Nikola and the Company. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including general economic, financial, legal, political and business conditions and changes in domestic and foreign markets; the potential effects of COVID-19; the potential effects of domestic civil unrest and the potential closure of government offices, the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the Proposed Transactions or to satisfy the other conditions to the closing of the Proposed Transactions, and those factors discussed in the Proxy Statement under the heading "Risk Factors," and other documents of the Company filed, or to be filed, with the SEC. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither Nikola nor the Company presently do not know or that Nikola and the Company currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect Nikola's and the Company's expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Nikola and the Company anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause their assessments to change. However, while Nikola and the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Nikola and the Company specifically disclaim any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Nikola's or the Company's assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.


Item 8.01. Other Events.



The disclosure set forth above in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference herein.
