Concurrently with the public offering, Nikola has entered into a forward stock purchase agreement with an investor, whereby the investor has agreed to purchase up to $100.0 million of shares of common stock from Nikola in a concurrent registered direct offering at the public offering price, with the actual amount of common stock purchased by the investor to be reduced by the extent of the total public offering amount from the public offering, subject to certain conditions.
