ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (“ZoomInfo” or the “Company”) today announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) relating to the issuance from time to time of up to 4,500,000 shares of its Class A common stock upon exchange or settlement of certain outstanding vested equity incentive awards that were granted to ZoomInfo employees prior to the Company’s initial public offering earlier this year.
The shares of Class A common stock to be registered will be issued pursuant to the terms of certain of the Company’s existing employee equity incentive awards that consist of limited liability company units in subsidiaries of the Company that may be exchanged or settled in shares of ZoomInfo Class A common stock. Because an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, is not available for these shares, the Company is required to file the S-1 registration statement in order to permit the shares of Class A common stock issuable pursuant to the incentive awards to be freely tradable in the hands of persons other than ZoomInfo’s affiliates. ZoomInfo will not receive any cash proceeds from the issuance of the shares covered by the registration statement.
A registration statement, including a prospectus, which is preliminary and subject to completion, relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, these securities. Copies of the preliminary prospectus relating to these securities may be obtained from ZoomInfo Technologies Inc., Attention: General Counsel, 805 Broadway Street, Suite 900, Vancouver, Washington 98660, by telephone at (800) 914-1220.
