Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Agreement and Plan of Merger
On November 16, 2021, nCino, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Penny HoldCo, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of nCino (“Parent”), Dollar Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“nCino Merger Sub”), Penny Merger Sub, LLC, a Utah limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“SimpleNexus Merger Sub”), Penny Blocker 1 Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Blocker 1 Merger Sub”), Penny Blocker 2 Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Blocker 2 Merger Sub”), Penny Blocker 3 Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Blocker 3 Merger Sub”), Penny Blocker 4 Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Blocker 4 Merger Sub” and, together with Blocker 1 Merger Sub, Blocker 2 Merger Sub and Blocker 3 Merger Sub, the “Blocker Merger Subs” and, together with nCino Merger Sub and SimpleNexus Merger Sub, the “Merger Subs”), Insight (Delaware) SN Blocker Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Blocker 1”), Insight (Cayman) SN Blocker Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Blocker 2”), ScarletFire SN Blocker Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Blocker 3”), TLEO, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Blocker 4” and, together with Blocker 1, Blocker 2 and Blocker 3, the “Blockers”), SimpleNexus, LLC, a Utah limited liability company (the “SimpleNexus”), and Insight Venture Partners, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, solely in its capacity as the Member Representative (as defined in the Merger Agreement).
The Company and the other parties to the Merger Agreement have agreed, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, to effect the following mergers pursuant to which the Company will acquire SimpleNexus and the Blockers, (i) nCino Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company, with the Company surviving such merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “nCino Merger”), (ii) each of the Blocker Merger Subs will be merged with and into the respective corresponding Blocker, with each of the respective Blockers surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent, (iii) SimpleNexus Merger Sub will be merged with and into SimpleNexus, with SimpleNexus surviving as a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Parent (the mergers contemplated in clauses (i) – (iii) hereof, collectively, the “Mergers”) and (iv), at the option of Parent, each of the Surviving Blockers may be merged with and into Parent, with Parent surviving such mergers.
The Merger Agreement provides, among other things, that on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, the Company will pay to certain securityholders of SimpleNexus and the securityholders of the Blockers a total consideration of approximately $1.2 billion, subject to certain adjustments. The consideration to be paid to such securityholders will consist, in the aggregate, of approximately 80% Parent common stock, par value $0.0005 (“Parent Common Stock”) (at a fixed value of $72.5250 per share, which is the average of the daily volume weighted average prices of the shares of Company Common Stock for the 20 trading days prior to and including November 12, 2021), and approximately 20% in cash, subject to certain adjustments. Any securityholder of SimpleNexus or the Blockers that is not an accredited investor will receive his, her or its portion of the merger consideration solely in cash and the securityholders that are accredited investors will receive proportionally more shares of Parent Common Stock and less cash. A portion of the cash consideration will also be held in escrow to serve as security for the potential payment of a customary post-closing purchase price adjustment, capped at the amount of such escrowed funds.
Holding Company Reorganization
In connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, each share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0005 (“Company Common Stock”) that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the nCino Merger will automatically convert into an equivalent corresponding share of Parent Common Stock, having the same designations, rights, powers and preferences and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions as the corresponding share of Company Common Stock being converted. Accordingly, upon consummation of the nCino Merger, the Company’s stockholders immediately prior to the consummation of the nCino Merger will become the stockholders of Parent. The stockholders of the Company will not recognize gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes upon the conversion of their shares in the nCino Merger.



The nCino Merger will be conducted pursuant to Section 251(g) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, which provides for the formation of a holding company without a vote of the stockholders of the constituent corporation. The conversion of stock will occur automatically. Following the consummation of the nCino Merger, Parent Common Stock shares will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on an uninterrupted basis under the symbol “NCNO” with a new CUSIP number. Immediately after consummation of the nCino Merger, Parent will have, on a consolidated basis, the same assets, businesses and operations as the Company had immediately prior to the consummation of the nCino Merger. As a result of the nCino Merger, Parent will become the successor issuer to the Company pursuant to 12g-3(a) of the Exchange Act and as a result the Parent Common Stock shares will be deemed registered under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act.
Other Terms of the Merger Agreement
The Merger Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, Parent, the Merger Subs, SimpleNexus and the Blockers. Between the date of execution of the Merger Agreement and the effective times of the Mergers, as applicable, SimpleNexus has agreed to use reasonable best efforts to conduct its and its subsidiaries' business in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice and to comply with certain operating covenants, and the Company has also agreed to comply with certain covenants. The Merger Agreement generally requires each party to take reasonable best efforts to take or cause to be taken all actions necessary to cause the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting periods under, and obtain as promptly as reasonably practicable all consents under, applicable regulatory laws that may be required by a governmental entity so as to enable the parties to consummate the Mergers and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement also provides customary termination rights to each of the parties. The Company or SimpleNexus may terminate the Merger Agreement if the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Mergers, are not consummated by March 16, 2022.
The completion of the Mergers is subject to customary conditions, including, without limitation, (i) the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting periods under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, (ii) the absence of any material applicable law or any order that has the effect of enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the completion of the Mergers, (iii) the receipt of certain tax opinions, (iv) the absence of a material adverse effect on the Company and SimpleNexus, and (v) the authorization for listing of the shares of Parent Common Stock on Nasdaq. The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement is anticipated to occur in the fourth quarter of the Company’s fiscal year, ending January 31, 2022.
A copy of the Merger Agreement is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing summary of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement.
Restrictive Covenant Agreement
Affiliates of Insight Partners are equityholders of each of SimpleNexus and certain of the Blockers in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, and other affiliates of Insight Partners are currently significant stockholders of the Company (collectively, the “Insight Parties”). As such, and as a condition and material inducement to the willingness of the Company, Parent and the Merger Subs to enter into the Merger Agreement, the Insight Parties have entered into a restrictive covenant agreement with Parent providing for, among other things, the Insight Parties’ agreement not to sell or otherwise directly or indirectly dispose of approximately two-thirds of the shares of Parent Common Stock that will be held by the Insight Parties following the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, on a pro forma basis, and assuming no sales by the Insight Parties of shares of the Company’s Common Stock prior to the Closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Following the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, approximately one third of this approximately two-thirds will be released from such restrictions on each of the six, nine and twelve month anniversaries of the closing of the transactions.
A copy of the Restrictive Covenant Agreement with the Insight Parties is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing summary of the Restrictive Covenant Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Restrictive Covenant Agreement.

No later than five (5) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall deliver to nCino a statement (the “Estimated Closing Statement”), the final version of which shall be signed by an authorized officer of the Company, setting forth (i) an estimated unaudited consolidated balance sheet of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the Closing and (ii) the Company’s good faith estimate of (A) Closing Working Capital (such estimate, “Estimated Closing Working Capital”), (B) Closing Indebtedness (such estimate, “Estimated Closing Indebtedness”), (C) Closing Cash (such estimate, “Estimated Closing Cash”) and (D) Company Transaction Expenses (such estimate, “Estimated Company Transaction Expenses”). The Estimated Closing Statement shall be prepared, and the components thereof shall be calculated, in accordance with this Agreement and the Specified Accounting Principles. The Company shall deliver supporting calculations and documentation of such calculations, in reasonable detail, concurrently with the delivery of such Estimated Closing Statement. Upon receipt of the Estimated Closing Statement from the Company, nCino shall be permitted to review and provide comments thereto, and the Company shall reasonably consider any comments made by nCino in respect thereof, and if such Parties agree on any changes to the Estimated Closing Statement or the components thereof, such revisions shall be deemed included in the applicable calculations for purposes of the Closing Merger Consideration; provided, that, if any disagreements with respect to the Estimated Closing Statement or the components thereof are not resolved by the Closing, the Estimated Closing Statement prepared by the Company, as revised to reflect any revisions thereto agreed by such Parties prior to the Closing but not any of nCino’s comments not agreed to by the Company, will be the Estimated Closing Statement for all purposes hereunder, and in no event will any such disagreements prevent or delay the Closing. In connection with nCino’s and its accountants’ review of the Estimated Closing Statement, upon nCino’s reasonable request, at nCino’s sole expense, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to allow reasonable access during normal working hours to its books and records and its personnel and outside advisors who were involved in the preparation of the Estimated Closing Statement or its components.
(b)Post-Closing Adjustment.
(i)As promptly as reasonably practicable, but in no event later than seventy-five (75) days following the Closing Date, Parent shall cause to be prepared and delivered to the Member Representative a statement (the “Parent Closing Statement”) setting forth in reasonable detail Parent’s good faith calculation of the Adjustment Amount (including good faith calculations of Closing Working Capital, Closing Indebtedness, Closing Cash and Company Transaction Expenses), together with supporting calculations and documentation in reasonable detail. The Parent Closing Statement shall be prepared, and the components thereof shall be calculated, in accordance with this Agreement and the Specified Accounting Principles. The Parties agree that the purpose of preparing the Parent Closing Statement is to measure the amount of Closing Working Capital, Closing Indebtedness, Closing Cash and Company Transaction Expenses, and the resulting
28


Adjustment Amount, in accordance with this Agreement, and such processes are not intended to permit the introduction of different judgments, accounting methods, policies, principles, practices, procedures, classifications or estimation methodologies for the purpose of preparing the Parent Closing Statement or determining the Adjustment Amount or the components thereof. The calculations of Closing Working Capital, Closing Indebtedness, Closing Cash and Company Transaction Expenses, and the resulting Adjustment Amount, in the Parent Closing Statement will entirely disregard (i) any and all effects on the Acquired Companies (including the assets and liabilities of the Acquired Companies) as a result of the Transactions resulting from purchase accounting or any financing or refinancing arrangements entered into at any time by Parent or any of its Affiliates or any other transaction entered into by Parent or any of its Affiliates in connection with the consummation of the Transactions and (ii) any of the plans, transactions, financings, payments or changes that Parent or any of its Affiliates initiates or makes, or causes to be initiated or made, after the Closing with respect to the Acquired Companies or their respective business or assets, or any facts or circumstances that are unique or particular to Parent or any of its Affiliates or any of their respective assets or liabilities. The Parent Closing Statement shall take into account information and events up to the date of delivery of the Parent Closing Statement that provides evidence of conditions that existed immediately prior to Closing in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 855, Subsequent Events but shall not take into account information or events that are indicative of conditions that arose after the Closing.
(ii)Upon receipt by the Member Representative of the Parent Closing Statement, Parent shall provide the Member Representative and any accountants or advisors retained by the Member Representative with reasonable access during normal working hours, at the Member Representative’s sole expense, to the books and records, personnel and accountants of the Acquired Companies for the purposes of (A) enabling the Member Representative and its accountants and advisors to calculate, and to review Parent’s calculation of, the Adjustment Amount and the components thereof as reflected in the Parent Closing Statement and (B) identifying (and contesting, if applicable) any dispute related to the calculation of the Adjustment Amount set forth in the Parent Closing Statement.
(iii)If the Member Representative disputes the Adjustment Amount set forth in the Parent Closing Statement, then the Member Representative shall deliver a written notice (an “Adjustment Dispute Notice”) to Parent and the Escrow Agent prior to the expiration of the forty-five (45) day period commencing upon receipt by the Member Representative of the Parent Closing Statement (the “Review Period”). The Adjustment Dispute Notice shall set forth, in reasonable detail, the principal basis and particulars for the dispute of such calculation and the Member Representative’s determination of the Adjustment Amount (including proposed calculations of Closing Working Capital, Closing Indebtedness, Closing Cash and Company Transaction Expenses). To the extent the Adjustment Dispute Notice does not dispute a certain component of the Adjustment Amount included in the Parent Closing Statement, then such component shall be final, binding and non-appealable by Parent, the Member Representative, the Company Securityholders and the Cash Plan Award Holders.
(iv)If the Member Representative does not deliver an Adjustment Dispute Notice to Parent prior to the expiration of the Review Period, the Adjustment Amount set forth in the Parent Closing Statement shall be deemed final and binding on Parent, the Member Representative, the Company Securityholders and the Cash Plan Award Holders as the Adjustment Amount for all purposes of this Agreement.
29


(v)If the Member Representative delivers an Adjustment Dispute Notice to Parent prior to the expiration of the Review Period, then the Member Representative and Parent shall meet, confer and exchange any additional relevant information reasonably requested by the other Party regarding the computation of the Adjustment Amount for a period of twenty (20) days following the delivery of the Adjustment Dispute Notice to Parent, and use reasonable best efforts to resolve by written agreement (the “Agreed Modifications”) any differences as to the Adjustment Amount. In the event Parent and the Member Representative so resolve any such differences, the Adjustment Amount set forth in the Parent Closing Statement, as adjusted by the Agreed Modifications, shall be final and binding as the Adjustment Amount for all purposes of this Agreement. If the Member Representative and Parent are unable to reach agreement on the calculation of the Adjustment Amount within the twenty (20) day period following the delivery of the Adjustment Dispute Notice to Parent, then either the Member Representative or Parent may submit the objections to a nationally recognized independent accounting firm reasonably acceptable to the Member Representative and Parent (such firm, or any successor thereto, being referred to herein as the “Designated Accounting Firm”) after such twentieth (20th) day. Any further submissions to the Designated Accounting Firm must be written and delivered to each party to the dispute. No Party shall engage in any ex-parte communication with the Designated Accounting Firm. In resolving any disputed item, the Designated Accounting Firm (x) shall determine the Closing Working Capital, Closing Indebtedness, Closing Cash and Company Transaction Expenses solely on the written presentations by Parent and the Member Representative which are in accordance with the respective definitions set forth in this Agreement and the Specified Accounting Principles, (y) shall limit its review to matters still in dispute as specifically set forth in the Adjustment Dispute Notice (and only to the extent such matters are still in dispute) and (z) shall act as an expert and not as an arbitrator. The Designated Accounting Firm shall be directed by Parent and the Member Representative to resolve the unresolved objections as promptly as reasonably practicable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and, in any event, within thirty (30) days of such referral (or such later time as the Parties may mutually agree), and, upon reaching such determination, to deliver a copy of its calculations (the “Expert Calculations”) to the Member Representative, Parent and the Escrow Agent. The determination of the Adjustment Amount made by the Designated Accounting Firm shall be final and binding on Parent, the Member Representative, the Company Securityholders and the Cash Plan Award Holders for all purposes of this Agreement, absent fraud or manifest error. The Expert Calculations (A) shall reflect in detail the differences, if any, between the calculation of the Adjustment Amount reflected in the Adjustment Dispute Notice and the calculation of the Adjustment Amount set forth in the Parent Closing Statement and (B) with respect to any specific discrepancy or disagreement, shall be no greater than the higher amount calculated by Parent or the Member Representative, as the case may be, and no lower than the lower amount calculated by Parent or the Member Representative, as the case may be. The fees and expenses of the Designated Accounting Firm shall be borne by Parent, on the one hand, and the Member Representative, on behalf of the Company Securityholders and the Cash Plan Award Holders, on the other hand, in inverse proportion as they may prevail on the matters resolved by the Designated Accounting Firm, which proportionate allocation shall be calculated on an aggregate basis based on the relative dollar values of the amounts in dispute and shall be determined by the Designated Accounting Firm at the time the determination is rendered on the merits of the matters submitted to the Designated Accounting Firm.
(vi)If the Adjustment Amount, as finally determined in accordance with this Section 3.4(b), is a negative number, then Parent and the Member Representative shall promptly (and in any event within three (3) Business Days following the final determination of the Adjustment Amount) issue joint written instructions to the Escrow
30


Agent directing the Escrow Agent to disburse to the SimpleNexus Surviving Company from the Escrow Fund in accordance with the Escrow Agreement an amount in cash equal to the absolute value of the Adjustment Amount.
(vii)If the Adjustment Amount, as finally determined in accordance with this Section 3.4(b), is a positive number, then Parent shall promptly (and in any event within three (3) Business Days following the final determination of the Adjustment Amount) (x) deposit with the Exchange Agent for disbursement to the Blocker Securityholders and the Non-Blocker Members (in proportion to their respective Pro Rata Portion of the Escrow Fund) an amount in cash equal to their respective aggregate Pro Rata Portion of the Adjustment Amount and (y) pay, or cause to be paid, to the SimpleNexus Surviving Company for further distribution to the holders of Cash Plan Awards (in proportion to their respective Pro Rata Portion of the Escrow Fund) in accordance with Section 3.2(k)(iii) an amount in cash equal to their respective aggregate Pro Rata Portion of the Adjustment Amount; provided, that, such amount shall not exceed an amount equal to the amount in the Escrow Fund.
(viii)Following the final determination of the Adjustment Amount in accordance with this Section 3.4(b), Parent and the Member Representative shall promptly (and in any event within three (3) Business Days following the final determination of the Adjustment Amount) execute and deliver joint written instructions to the Escrow Agent instructing the Escrow Agent to release from the Escrow Fund (x) to the Exchange Agent for distribution to the Blocker Securityholders and Non-Blocker Members their respective aggregate Pro Rata Portion of the amount then held in the Escrow Fund and (y) to the SimpleNexus Surviving Company for further distribution in cash to the holders of Cash Plan Awards in accordance with Section 3.2(k)(iii) their respective aggregate Pro Rata Portion of the amount then held in the Escrow Fund (collectively, the “Released Cash”). The Exchange Agent will then disburse to the Blocker Securityholders and Non-Blocker Members (in proportion to their respective Pro Rata Portion of the Escrow Fund) the portion of the Released Cash released for the benefit of the Blocker Securityholders and Non-Blocker Members in accordance with the payment delivery instructions set forth in such Blocker Securityholder’s and Non-Blocker Member’s Letter of Transmittal.

No further transfer of any such Company Units shall be made on such register of members or books after the Company Effective Time. If, after the Company Effective Time, valid evidence of ownership of Company Units is presented to and accepted by the Exchange Agent, the nCino Surviving Corporation, the SimpleNexus Surviving Company or Parent in accordance with this Section 3.5, such Company Units shall be canceled and shall be exchanged as provided in this Section 3.5.

Each of nCino and the Company shall bear 50% of the fees and expenses of the Exchange Agent.
(c)Promptly after the Company Effective Time (and in no event later than one (1) Business Day following the Closing Date), Parent shall instruct the Exchange Agent to send to each Blocker Securityholder and Non-Blocker Member a letter of transmittal and instructions in the form of Exhibit E hereto (the “Letter of Transmittal”), which shall include an acknowledgement and agreement to be bound by the provisions of Section 11.1 of this Agreement, for use in such exchange. Upon the delivery to the Exchange Agent of a properly completed and duly executed Letter of Transmittal in accordance with the instructions thereto, and any other documents reasonably requested by the Exchange Agent, such Blocker Securityholder or Non-Blocker Member shall be entitled to receive an amount in cash and the number of shares of Parent Common Stock that, in each case, such holder has the right to receive therefor pursuant to the provisions of Section 3.2.

(d)Prior to the nCino Effective Time, nCino shall take all necessary action to effectuate the provisions of this Section 3.7. Parent shall reserve for future issuance a number of shares of Parent Common Stock at least equal to the number of shares of Parent Common Stock that will be subject to nCino Stock Options and nCino RSUs as a result of the actions contemplated by this Section 3.7.
(e)Not later than the Closing Date, Parent shall file an effective registration statement on Form S-8 (or other applicable form) with respect to the shares of Parent Common Stock subject to the nCino Equity Incentive Plan, nCino ESPP and such Parent Stock Options and Parent RSUs, and shall distribute a prospectus relating to such Form S-8, and Parent shall use reasonable best efforts to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement or registration statements (and maintain the current status of the prospectus or prospectuses contained therein) for so long as such Parent Stock Options and Parent RSUs remain outstanding.
Section 3.8.Withholding. Parent and the Exchange Agent shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the consideration otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement such amounts as may be required to be deducted and withheld with respect to the making of such payment under the Code, or under any provision of state, local or foreign tax Law. Parent and the Exchange Agent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to (i) provide the Blocker Securityholders or Non-Blocker Members, as applicable, with written notice of any amounts that Parent and the Exchange Agent intend to deduct or withhold from any amounts payable pursuant to this Agreement reasonably in advance of the payment thereof (other than any amounts treated as compensation for Tax purposes or any withholding described in Section 7.12) and (ii) cooperate in good faith with Blocker Securityholders or Non-Blocker Members, as applicable, to seek to eliminate or reduce any such withholding or deduction. Any amount deducted or withheld pursuant to this Section 3.8 shall be treated as having been paid to the Person in respect of which such deduction or withholding was made. In the case of any amounts withheld from any payments not consisting entirely of cash, Parent or the Exchange Agent shall be treated as though it withheld an appropriate amount of Parent Common Stock otherwise payable pursuant to this

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no fractional shares of Parent Common Stock will be issued, and if, after aggregating all shares of Parent Common Stock (including fractional shares) that would be issued hereunder to a holder of shares of nCino Common Stock or to a Blocker Securityholder or Non-Blocker Member as such holder’s Pro Rata Portion of the Closing Stock Consideration, such aggregate number of shares of Parent Common Stock includes a fraction of a share of Parent Common Stock, no certificates or scrip for any such fractional shares shall be issued hereunder and such holder shall receive an amount in cash equal to the product of (a) such fraction of a share of Parent Common Stock multiplied by (b) the nCino Stock Price.
Section 3.10.Certain Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, if, from the date of this Agreement until the Effective Times, the outstanding shares of Parent Common Stock or nCino Common Stock shall have been changed into a different number of shares or a different class by reason of any reclassification, stock split (including a reverse stock split), recapitalization, split-up, combination, exchange of shares, readjustment, or other similar transaction, or a stock dividend or stock distribution thereon shall be declared with a record date within said period, the Closing Stock Consideration and any other similarly dependent items, as the case may be, without duplication, shall be equitably adjusted to provide the holders of nCino Common Stock and Blocker Securityholders and Non-Blocker Members the same economic effect as contemplated by this Agreement prior to such event.

70


provided, that (A) such efforts shall not require agreeing to any obligations or accommodations (financial or otherwise) binding on the Parties or any of their respective Subsidiaries in the event the Closing does not occur, (B) nothing contained in this Section 7.3 shall limit, expand or otherwise modify in any way any efforts standard explicitly applicable to any such Party’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ obligations under this Agreement, and (C) each Blocker shall only be required to use such efforts with respect to its applicable Merger and the other Transactions to which such Blocker is a party.

Each of nCino and the Company shall bear 50% of the filing fees, costs and expenses under the HSR Act and any other applicable antitrust Law, with respect to any and all filings required to be made by nCino under the HSR Act and any other applicable antitrust Law with respect to the Transactions (such fees, costs and expenses, the “nCino Filing Fees”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, (A) nCino agrees to promptly pay or reimburse the Company, any nCino stockholder, any Blocker Securityholder and any Non-Blocker Member, as applicable, for 50% of the filing fees, costs and expenses incurred or payable by the Company, such nCino stockholder, such Blocker Securityholder or such Non-Blocker Member, as the case may be, in connection with the Required HSR Filings and any and all other filings required to be made by such Person(s) under any other applicable antitrust Law with respect to the Transactions, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account(s) designated in writing by such Person(s), and (B) each nCino stockholder, Blocker Securityholder and Non-Blocker Member is a third-party beneficiary of this sentence and is entitled to the rights and benefits granted thereby and may enforce such rights and benefits as if such Person was a party hereto.

Subject to applicable Laws relating to the exchange of information, each of the Parties shall have the right to review in advance, and to the extent practicable each will consult the other on any, filing made with, or written materials constituting material communications submitted to, any third party and/or any Governmental Entity in connection with any Proceeding with respect to the Transactions in connection with proceedings under or relating to any antitrust Law. Subject to applicable Laws relating to the exchange of information, each Party shall give the other party reasonable advance notice of all material communications with any Governmental Entity and each Party shall, to the extent permitted by the relevant regulator, have the right to attend and participate in material conferences, meetings and telephone or other communications between the other Parties and regulators concerning the Transactions. The Parties may, as each deems advisable and necessary, reasonably designate any competitively sensitive material provided to the other under this Section 7.3 as “Antitrust Counsel Only Material.” Such materials and the information contained therein shall be given only to the outside antitrust counsel of the recipient and will not be disclosed by such outside antitrust counsel to employees, officers, directors or other Representatives of the recipient unless express permission is obtained in advance from the source of the materials (the applicable Party) or its legal counsel. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 7.3, materials provided to another Party or its outside counsel may be redacted to remove references concerning the valuation, pricing and other competitively sensitive terms from an antitrust perspective in the Contracts of the Parties and their respective Subsidiaries.
(e)Notwithstanding Sections 7.3(a)(d) or any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall nCino or Parent or their Subsidiaries or Affiliates be required to agree to (nor shall the Acquired Companies, without nCino’s prior written consent, propose or commit to any third party that it or nCino or Parent or their Subsidiaries or Affiliates will) (i) divest, license, hold separate or otherwise dispose of, encumber or allow a third party to utilize, any portion of its or their respective businesses, assets or Contracts or (ii) take any other action that may be required or requested by any Governmental Entity in connection with obtaining the consents, authorizations, orders or approvals contemplated by this Section 7.3 that, in the case of clauses (i) and (ii), would have an adverse impact, in any material respect, on (A) the business of nCino and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, or (B) the business of the Acquired Companies, taken as a whole (each a “Regulatory Action”).
(f)nCino, Parent and each Party hereto that is required to make a Required HSR Filing shall not, and shall not permit any of their Subsidiaries to, acquire or agree to acquire by merging or consolidating with, or by purchasing a substantial portion of the assets of or equity in, or by any other manner, any Person or portion thereof, or otherwise acquire or agree to acquire any assets, if the entering into of a definitive agreement relating to or the consummation of such acquisition, merger or consolidation would reasonably be expected to (i) impose any delay in the obtaining of, or increase the risk of not obtaining, any authorizations, consents, orders, declarations or approvals of any Governmental Entity necessary to consummate the Transactions or the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period, (ii) increase the risk of any Governmental Entity entering an Order prohibiting the consummation of the Transactions, or (iii) delay the consummation of the Transactions.
(g)Following the Closing, each Party shall, and shall cause its respective Subsidiaries to, use reasonable best efforts to cooperate with each other in connection with preparing and filing the Form FIN 531 — Change of Control filing to be made with the Texas Department of Insurance pursuant to Tex. Ins. Code § 4001.253 with respect to the Transactions.

72


(a)The Parties hereby acknowledge and agree to continue to be bound by the Confidentiality Agreement.
(b)The Parties agree that the initial press release to be issued with respect to the execution and delivery of this Agreement shall be in the form mutually agreed upon by nCino and the Company. Thereafter, nCino and the Company shall not, and shall cause each of its Representatives and Subsidiaries (and each of their Subsidiaries’ Representatives) not to, directly or indirectly, issue any press release or other public statement relating to the terms of this Agreement or the Transactions in any media interview, advertisement, news release, press release or professional or trade publication, or in any print media, whether or not in response to an inquiry, without the prior written approval of the other Party (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), unless to the extent required by applicable Law or by obligations pursuant to any listing agreement with any national securities exchange, in which case such Party shall advise the other Party of any such requirement in advance and the Parties shall use reasonable best efforts to cause a mutually agreeable press release or other public statement to be issued. Notwithstanding anything herein, (i) each of the Parties and their Affiliates may issue press releases or make public announcements concerning this Agreement and the Transactions that are consistent with previous press releases or public announcements made by nCino or the Company in compliance with this Section 7.4, (ii) nCino may make public statements with respect to the anticipated effect of this Agreement and the Transactions on nCino’s business and its financial projections, with investors, analysts and financing sources, including on its periodic earnings calls and in any “road show,” and any public disclosure as required by the SEC, FINRA or other Governmental Entity as nCino may reasonably determine without prior consultation with the Company and (iii) Insight Venture Management, LLC and its Affiliates may provide information about the subject matter of this Agreement and the Transactions in connection with ordinary course fundraising, marketing, informational, transactional or reporting activities.
Section 7.5.Indemnification.
(a)From and after the Effective Times, Parent shall (and shall cause the Company, nCino and their respective Subsidiaries to) indemnify, defend and hold harmless, (i) to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law (without limitation to clause (ii) below), and shall advance expenses as incurred to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law, provided the person to whom expenses are advanced provides an undertaking to repay such advances if it is ultimately determined that such person is not entitled to be indemnified hereunder, and (ii) to the same extent that such persons are entitled to indemnification pursuant to the certificate of incorporation and by-laws or other organizational documents of the Company, nCino or any of their respective Subsidiaries as in effect as of the date hereof or in any Contract of the applicable Party or its respective Subsidiaries with any of their respective present and former directors, managers, officers or employees in effect as of the date of this Agreement, each present and former director, manager, officer or employee of the Company, nCino and their respective Subsidiaries (in each case, when acting in such capacity) (each, an “Indemnitee” and, collectively, the “Indemnitees”) against any costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), judgments, settlements, fines, losses, claims, damages or liabilities incurred in connection with any claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, arising out of or pertaining to matters existing or occurring at or prior to the Effective Times, including the Transactions, in such Indemnitee’s capacity as a director, manager, officer or employee of nCino or the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries or in such Indemnitee’s capacity as a director, manager, officer, member, trustee or fiduciary of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, pension or other employee benefit plan or enterprise at the request or for the benefit of nCino or the Company, before the Effective Times (including acts or omissions in connection with such persons serving as an officer, director or other fiduciary in any entity if such service was at the request or for the benefit of nCino or the Company).
73


(b)Parent agrees that all rights to exculpation, indemnification or advancement of expenses arising from, relating to, or otherwise in respect of, acts or omissions occurring prior to the Effective Times (including in connection with this Agreement or the Transactions or actions contemplated hereby) now existing in favor of the current or former directors, managers, officers or employees of nCino or the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries as provided in their respective certificates of incorporation, by-laws or other organizational documents or in any Contract of the applicable Party or its respective Subsidiaries with any of their respective current or former directors, managers, officers or employees in effect as of the date of this Agreement shall survive the Mergers and shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with their terms. For a period of no less than six (6) years from the Effective Times, Parent shall cause nCino and the Company to, and the nCino Surviving Corporation and the SimpleNexus Surviving Company shall, and shall cause their respective Subsidiaries to, maintain in effect the exculpation, indemnification and advancement of expenses provisions of the applicable Party’s or their respective Subsidiaries’ certificate of incorporation and by-laws or similar organization documents in effect as of the date of this Agreement or in any Contract of the applicable Party or its respective Subsidiaries with any of their respective current or former directors, managers, officers or employees in effect as of the date of this Agreement, and shall not amend, repeal or otherwise modify any such provisions in any manner that would adversely affect the rights thereunder of any individuals who immediately before the Effective Times were current or former directors, managers, officers or employees of nCino or the Company or their respective Subsidiaries; provided, however, that all rights to exculpation, indemnification and advancement of expenses in respect of any Proceeding pending or asserted or any claim made within such period shall continue until the final disposition of such Proceeding.
(c)In the event that Parent, the nCino Surviving Corporation, the SimpleNexus Surviving Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries, or any of their respective successors or assigns, (i) consolidates with or merges into any other Person and is not the continuing or surviving corporation or entity of such consolidation or merger or (ii) transfers or conveys all or substantially all of its properties and assets to any Person, then, and in each case, Parent shall, and shall cause the nCino Surviving Corporation or the SimpleNexus Surviving Company, as applicable, to, cause proper provision to be made so that such successor or assign shall expressly assume the obligations set forth in this Section 7.5.
(d)Prior to the Company Effective Time, the Company may obtain an extended reporting period endorsement under the Company’s existing directors’ and officers’ liability insurance coverage (the “D&O Tail Policy”) with a claims period of no more than six (6) years from and after the Company Effective Time from an insurance carrier with the same or better credit rating as the Company’s current insurance carrier with respect to directors’ and officers’ liability insurance and fiduciary liability insurance which shall provide the directors (or managers) and officers of the Company and its Subsidiaries with coverage not less than the existing coverage under, and have other terms not materially less favorable to, the insured persons than the directors’ (or managers’) and officers’ liability insurance coverage currently maintained by the Company, and, if such policies have been obtained, Parent shall, and shall cause the SimpleNexus Surviving Company to, maintain such policies in full force and effect after the Company Effective Time. Each of nCino and the Company shall bear 50% of the fees, expenses and premium of the D&O Tail Policy.
(e)The provisions of this Section 7.5 are (i) intended to be for the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by, each Indemnitee, his or her heirs and his or her representatives and (ii) in addition to, and not in substitution for, any other rights to indemnification or contribution that any such individual may have under the applicable Party’s certificate of incorporation and by-laws or similar organization documents in effect as of the date of this Agreement or in any Contract of the applicable Party or its respective Subsidiaries in effect as of the date of this Agreement. The obligations of the Parties under this Section 7.5 shall not be terminated or
74


modified in such a manner as to adversely affect the rights of any Indemnitee to whom this Section 7.5 applies unless (x) such termination or modification is required by applicable Law or (y) the affected Indemnitee shall have consented in writing to such termination or modification (it being expressly agreed that the Indemnitees to whom this Section 7.5 applies shall be third party beneficiaries of this Section 7.5).
(f)Nothing in this Agreement is intended to, shall be construed to or shall release, waive or impair any rights to directors’ and officers’ insurance claims under any policy that is or has been in existence with respect to nCino or the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries for any of their respective directors, managers, officers or other employees, it being understood and agreed that the indemnification provided for in this Section 7.5 is not prior to or in substitution for any such claims under such policies.
Section 7.6.Stock Exchange Listing. Parent and nCino shall use their reasonable best efforts to cause the shares of Parent Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Mergers and shares of Parent Common Stock to be reserved upon exercise of options to purchase Parent Common Stock (including shares of Parent Common Stock to be issued in connection with the treatment of the nCino Equity Incentive Plans hereunder, as applicable) to be listed on Nasdaq, subject to official notice of issuance, prior to the respective Effective Times.
Section 7.7.Registration Statement.
(a)Promptly, and in any event no later than one (1) Business Day following the Closing Date, Parent will file with the SEC a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) registering the resale of the Closing Stock Consideration (the “Registrable Securities”) by the holders thereof (the “Selling Shareholders”), and Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective as soon as practicable after the filing thereof; provided, however, that Parent’s obligations to include a given Selling Shareholder’s Registrable Securities in the Registration Statement are contingent upon such Selling Shareholder furnishing a Selling Shareholder Questionnaire as contemplated by Section 7.7(b). If Parent is eligible to file a Registration Statement on Form S3 pursuant to Rule 462(e) under the Securities Act (an “Automatic Registration Statement”), the Registration Statement shall be an Automatic Registration Statement. If Parent is not eligible to use an Automatic Registration Statement, the Registration Statement shall be on Form S3, or if Form S3 is not available to Parent, another appropriate form. If the Registration Statement is not an Automatic Registration Statement, Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to have the Registration Statement declared effective under the Securities Act as promptly as practicable after such Registration Statement is filed. Parent will advise the Member Representative promptly after Parent receives any request by the SEC for amendment of the Registration Statement or any SEC comments thereon. Once the Registration Statement is declared effective, Parent shall notify the Member Representative of such declaration, and thereafter, subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, shall use reasonable best efforts to cause the Registration Statement to be continuously effective and usable until the date that is the earlier to occur of (i) the date on which all Registrable Securities included in the Registration Statement have been sold in accordance with the Registration Statement or (ii) such time as each of the Selling Shareholders is eligible to sell the Registrable Securities under Rule 144 without limitation as to volume, manner of sale or other limitations (such period, the “Registration Period”). Parent shall use reasonable best efforts to cause the Registration Statement (including the documents incorporated therein by reference) to comply as to form in all material respects with all applicable requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act.
(b) The Member Representative shall use commercially reasonable efforts to collect from each Blocker Securityholder and Non-Blocker Member and deliver to Parent a completed and executed selling shareholders questionnaire substantially in the form attached hereto as
75


Exhibit G (each, a “Selling Shareholder Questionnaire”). The Registration Statement (or any prospectus or prospectus supplement forming a part of such Registration Statement), as initially filed, shall include the Registrable Securities of all Selling Shareholders for whom Parent has received completed Selling Shareholder Questionnaires on or before the second (2nd) Business Day following the Closing. Parent further agrees to provide in the Registration Statement (and in any prospectus or prospectus supplement forming a part of such Registration Statement) that all transferees, pledgees, distributees, donees or other successors (collectively, “Transferees”) of a Selling Shareholder shall, by virtue of receiving Registrable Securities in such a transfer, be deemed to be Selling Shareholders under the Registration Statement (or any such prospectus or prospectus supplement) with respect to the Registrable Securities received by such Transferees in such transfers; provided, that such transfers are made in accordance with Section 6.1 of the Investors’ Rights Agreement, the certificate of incorporation and bylaws of Parent, and applicable securities Laws. Parent shall include disclosure in the plan of distribution in the Registration Statement (and any prospectus or prospectus supplement forming a part of such Registration Statement) that Transferees will be covered by the Registration Statement. Parent’s obligations with respect to settling any offering or sale of Registrable Securities shall be as set forth in the Section 2.12(c) of the Investors’ Rights Agreement.
(c)Parent will provide a draft of the Registration Statement to the Member Representative for review at least three (3) Business Days in advance of filing the Registration Statement and shall consider in good faith any reasonable comments made by the Member Representative regarding the Registration Statement and incorporate therein any agreed upon changes. In no event shall any Selling Shareholder be identified as a statutory underwriter in the Registration Statement unless requested by the SEC. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the SEC prevents Parent from including any or all of the Closing Stock Consideration proposed to be registered for resale under the Registration Statement due to limitations on the use of Rule 415 of the Securities Act for the resale of the Closing Stock Consideration by the applicable selling shareholder or otherwise, (i) such Registration Statement shall register for resale such amount of the Closing Stock Consideration which is equal to the maximum amount of the Closing Stock Consideration as is permitted by the SEC and (ii) the amount of the Closing Stock Consideration to be registered for each Selling Shareholder named in the Registration Statement shall be reduced pro rata among all such Selling Shareholders; and as promptly as practicable after being permitted to register additional amount of the Closing Stock Consideration under Rule 415 under the Securities Act, Parent shall amend the Registration Statement or file a new Registration Statement to register such amount of the Closing Stock Consideration not included in the initial Registration Statement and cause such amendment or Registration Statement to become effective as promptly as practicable.
(d)Parent shall notify the Member Representative promptly upon discovery that, or upon the discovery of the happening of any event as a result of which, the Registration Statement or any supplement to any prospectus forming a part of the Registration Statement contains an untrue statement of a material fact or omits any fact necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, and, as promptly as practicable, use reasonable best efforts to supplement or amend such prospectus so that such prospectus will not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements made therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances under which they were made. After the Registration Statement becomes effective, Parent shall notify the Member Representative of any request by the SEC that Parent amend or supplement such Registration Statement or prospectus, and Parent shall use reasonable best efforts to prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to the Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be reasonably necessary to keep the Registration Statement effective and to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of all Registrable Securities covered by the Registration Statement. Parent shall furnish to each Selling Shareholder such numbers of copies of a
76


prospectus, including a preliminary prospectus, and any supplement to any prospectus, as required by the Securities Act and shall take such other actions (including causing the removal of any restricted legends with respect to any shares that have been sold), as the Selling Shareholders may reasonably request in order to facilitate their disposition of their Registrable Securities, subject to each Selling Shareholder providing any information reasonably requested by Parent to facilitate such action.
(e)Parent shall indemnify and hold harmless each Selling Shareholder (and the partners, members, officers, directors, and stockholders of each such Selling Shareholder; legal counsel and accountants for each such Selling Shareholder; any underwriter (as defined in the Securities Act) for each such Selling Shareholder; and each Person, if any, who controls such Selling Shareholder or underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act) in a manner that is consistent with the indemnification rights provided to selling Holders of Registrable Securities included in a registration statement as set forth in Section 2.8(a) – (d) of the Investors’ Rights Agreement, as if such Registrable Securities were Registrable Securities thereunder and such Selling Shareholders were Holders thereunder and signatories thereto.
(f)All of the expenses incurred in connection with any registration of Registrable Securities pursuant to this Agreement, including all SEC fees, blue sky registration and filing fees, listing notices and filing fees, printing fees and expenses, transfer agents’ and registrars’ fees and expenses and all fees and expenses of Parent’s outside counsel and independent accountants of Parent shall be paid by Parent. Parent shall not be responsible for any selling expenses of any Selling Shareholder (including any broker’s fees or commissions) or fees or expenses of outside counsel or independent accountants of Selling Shareholder or, to the extent incurred prior to the Closing, the Company or any Blocker in connection with the Registration Statement.
(g)Parent shall use reasonable best efforts to register or qualify or cooperate with the Selling Shareholders in connection with the registration or qualification (or exemption from such registration or qualification) of the Registrable Securities for offer and sale under the applicable state securities or “blue sky” laws of those jurisdictions within the United States as any Selling Shareholder reasonably requests in writing to keep each such registration or qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective until the end of the Registration Period; provided, that Parent will not be required to (A) qualify generally to do business as a foreign corporation or as a dealer in securities in any jurisdiction wherein it would not but for the requirements of this paragraph be obligated to be so qualified, (B) subject itself to taxation in any such jurisdiction or (C) file a general consent to service of process in any such jurisdiction.
(h)Other than transfers pursuant to the Registration Statement, all Closing Stock Consideration will be subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 2.12 of the Investors’ Rights Agreement as if such Registrable Securities were Registrable Securities thereunder and such Selling Shareholders were Holders thereunder and signatories thereto.
Section 7.8.Employee Benefit Plans.
(a)During the period beginning on the Closing Date and ending on the first (1st) anniversary of the Closing Date (the “Continuation Period”), nCino and Parent shall provide, or shall cause the Surviving Entities to provide, employees who continue to be employed by the Company as of the Closing Date and who remain so employed immediately following the Closing Date (collectively, “Continuing Employees”) with (i) the same salary or hourly wage rate and annual incentive compensation opportunities (excluding any equity or equity-based compensation) as provided to such Continuing Employees immediately prior to the Closing Date and (ii) employee benefits that are substantially similar in the aggregate to the employee benefits provided to similarly-situated employees of the nCino Surviving Corporation during such period.
77


(b)nCino and Parent further agree that, from and after the Closing Date, nCino and Parent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to, and to cause the Surviving Entities to, grant all Continuing Employees credit for any service with the Company earned prior to the Closing Date for eligibility, vesting and benefit accrual purposes (excluding benefit accruals under any defined benefit plan or retiree welfare benefit plan, as well as vesting for purposes of any equity or equity-based plan or arrangement, but including, without limitation, for purposes of any other welfare plan, retirement plan, vacation, paid time off, personal leave or sick leave program, or severance program) under any benefit or compensation plan, program, agreement or arrangement sponsored, maintained or contributed to by Parent or the Surviving Entities in which the Continuing Employees commence participation on or after the Closing Date (collectively, the “New Plans”), to the extent such Continuing Employees participated in an analogous Company Benefit Plan immediately prior to the Closing and except where such service credit was not recognized under an analogous Company Benefit Plan immediately prior to the Closing and as would result in duplication of benefits. In addition, nCino and Parent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to, or to cause the Surviving Entities to, (x) cause to be waived all pre-existing condition exclusions and actively at work requirements and similar limitations, eligibility waiting periods and evidence of insurability requirements under any New Plans to the extent waived or satisfied by a Continuing Employee under any analogous Company Benefit Plan as of the date on which commencement of participation in such New Plan begins, and (y) cause any deductible, co-insurance and covered out-of-pocket expenses paid under any Company Benefit Plan during the calendar year in which commencement of participation in an analogous New Plan begins and prior to such commencement of participation by any Continuing Employee (or covered dependent thereof) to be taken into account for purposes of satisfying the corresponding deductible, coinsurance and maximum out of pocket provisions under such New Plan in the year of initial participation.
(c)No later than one (1) Business Day prior to the Company Effective Time, the Company shall provide Parent and nCino with resolutions evidencing, effective as of at least one (1) day prior to such date, the termination of the SimpleNexus 401(k) Plan and any other Company Benefit Plan that contains a cash or deferred arrangement intended to qualify under Section 401(a) of the Code (the “Company 401(k) Plans”); provided, nCino will cause that certain nCino, Inc. 401(k) Plan (the “nCino 401(k) Plan”) to accept rollovers (including rollovers of loans) from and after the Effective Times from the Company 401(k) Plans with respect to employees of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the Company Effective Time who remain employed with the SimpleNexus Surviving Company or one of its Affiliates following such time and subject to the satisfaction of eligibility provisions (taking into account service credit recognized pursuant to Section 7.8(b)) and other applicable requirements, including as to the tax-qualified status of the Company 401(k) Plan and of the nCino 401(k) Plan. Effective not later than the Closing Date, nCino shall have in effect one or more defined contribution plans that include a Code Section 401(k) arrangement and a related trust exempt from Tax under Section 501(a) of the Code in which each Continuing Employee participating in the Company 401(k) Plans immediately prior to the Closing Date shall be eligible to participate as of the Closing Date and in which each Continuing Employee who would have become eligible to participate in the applicable Company 401(k) Plans on or after the Closing Date shall become eligible to participate no later than such time as he or she would have become eligible to participate in the such Company 401(k) Plans, subject, in each case, to the terms and conditions of any such plan(s).
(d)In connection with the Closing, nCino will grant equity incentive awards to the key employees, and in the form and amounts, set forth on Section 7.8(d) of the Company Disclosure Schedule.
(e)With respect to Continuing Employees who are eligible for unlimited paid time off pursuant to the Company’s applicable paid time off policy as of immediately prior to the
78


Closing (such policy, the “Company PTO Plan,” and such Continuing Employees, the “Unlimited PTO Employees”), during the Continuation Period, nCino and Parent shall provide, or shall cause the Surviving Entities to provide, each Unlimited PTO Employee with unlimited paid time off in accordance with the terms of the Company PTO Plan. Immediately following the Closing Date, each Unlimited PTO Employee will begin accruing paid vacation, paid time off, and/or personal and sick leave days in accordance with the terms of the applicable New Plan setting forth Parent’s and/or the Surviving Entities’ vacation, paid time off, and/or personal and sick leave policies, taking into account service credit recognized pursuant to Section 7.8(b) (“Parent PTO Plan”), and such Unlimited PTO Employee will be required to use any available vacation, paid time off, and/or personal and sick leave days accrued following the Closing in accordance with the terms of the applicable Parent PTO Plan before such Unlimited PTO Employee may use any unlimited paid time off pursuant to the Company PTO Plan.

ARTICLE X.

TERMINATION
Section 10.1.Termination. Anything herein or elsewhere to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement may be terminated and the Mergers contemplated herein may be abandoned at any time prior to the Company Effective Time:
(a)By the mutual written consent of nCino and the Company.
(b)By either of the Company or nCino:
(i)if any Governmental Entity in the United States shall have issued an Order permanently restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the Transactions and such Order shall have become final and non-appealable; provided, that the Principal Party seeking to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(b)(i) shall have used its reasonable best efforts to contest, appeal and remove such Order in accordance with Section 7.3 and shall have materially complied with its other obligations under this Agreement; or
(ii)if the Transactions shall not have been consummated by March 16, 2022 (the “Outside Date”); provided, that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(b)(ii) shall not be available to the Company or nCino if its action or failure to act constitutes a material breach or violation of any of its covenants, agreements or other obligations hereunder and such material breach or violation proximately caused or resulted in (1) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the obligations of the terminating Party to consummate the Merger set forth in Article IX prior to the Outside Date or (2) the failure of the Closing to occur by the Outside Date.
(c)By the Company if nCino, Parent or any Merger Sub shall have breached or failed to perform any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement, which breach or failure to perform (i) would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Sections 9.3(a) or 9.3(b) (assuming that the date of such determination is the Closing Date) and (ii) is not cured or is incapable of being cured within twenty (20) Business Days following delivery by the Company to nCino of written notice of such breach of failure to perform; provided, however, the Company shall not have a right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(c) if it is then in breach of any representations, warranties, covenants or other agreements contained in this Agreement that would result in a failure of a condition set forth in Section 9.1 or Section 9.2.
(d)By nCino if:
(i)the Company shall have breached or failed to perform any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement, which breach or failure to perform (i) would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Sections 9.2(a) or 9.2(b) (assuming that the date of such determination is the Closing Date) and (ii) is not cured or is incapable of being cured within twenty (20) Business Days following delivery by nCino to the Company of written notice of such breach of failure to perform; provided, however, that nCino shall not have a right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(d) if it is then in breach of any representations,
89


warranties, covenants or other agreements contained in this Agreement that would result in a failure of a condition set forth in Section 9.1 or Section 9.3; or
(ii)any Blocker shall have breached or failed to perform any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement, which breach or failure to perform (i) would give rise to the failure of a condition set forth in Sections 9.2(a) or 9.2(b) (assuming that the date of such determination is the Closing Date) and (ii) is not cured or is incapable of being cured within twenty (20) Business Days following delivery by nCino to such Blocker of written notice of such breach of failure to perform; provided, however, that nCino shall not have a right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(d) if it is then in breach of any representations, warranties, covenants or other agreements contained in this Agreement that would result in a failure of a condition set forth in Section 9.1 or Section 9.3.
Section 10.2.Effect of Termination. In the event of the termination of this Agreement by either nCino or the Company as provided in Section 10.1, written notice thereof shall forthwith be given by the terminating Party to the other Principal Party specifying the provision hereof pursuant to which such termination is made. In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.1, this Agreement shall be terminated and this Agreement shall forthwith become void and have no effect, without any Liability or obligation on the part of nCino, Parent, the Merger Subs, the Company or the Blockers (or any Representative of such party), other than this Section 10.2 and Article XI, which provisions shall survive such termination; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 10.2 shall relieve any Party from liability for such Party’s Fraud, Willful Breach of a representation or warranty or Willful Breach of any covenant or other agreement contained in this Agreement. No termination of this Agreement shall affect the obligations of the parties contained in the Confidentiality Agreement, all of which obligations shall survive the termination of this Agreement in accordance with their terms.
Section 10.3.Procedure for Termination or Amendment. A termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.1, or an amendment or waiver of this Agreement pursuant to Sections 11.2 or 11.3 shall, in order to be effective, require, in the case of the Company, nCino, Parent and the Merger Subs, action by their respective boards of directors or a duly authorized committee thereof, followed by written notice to the non-terminating Principal Party of the particular Section of this Agreement pursuant to which this Agreement is terminated.
