Item 1.01              Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On June 21, 2018, WillScot Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and its newly-formed acquisition subsidiary, Mason Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Modular Space Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“ModSpace”) and NANOMA LLC, solely in its capacity as the representative of the Holders (as defined therein), pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into ModSpace (the “Merger”) with ModSpace as the surviving entity in the Merger and continuing as an indirect subsidiary of the Company (the “ModSpace Acquisition”). Subject to potential adjustment under the Merger Agreement, the aggregate consideration payable to the sellers under the Merger Agreement consists of (i) $1,063,750,000 in cash, (ii) 6,458,500 shares of the Company’s class A common stock, par value $0.0001 (the “Common Stock”) and (iii) warrants to purchase an aggregate of 10 million shares of Common Stock.


The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants by the parties. The sellers will have no obligation to indemnify the Company under the Merger Agreement for breaches of ModSpace’s representations, warranties or covenants, and the Company’s recourse for any such breaches will be limited to a representations and warranties insurance policy to be purchased by the Company prior to the closing.


The closing of the transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including (i) a Canadian regulatory approval, (ii) the continuing accuracy of each party’s representations and warranties, (iii) the performance of certain obligations and (iv) the satisfaction of other customary conditions. The Merger Agreement may be terminated by the Company or ModSpace under certain circumstances. If the Merger Agreement is validly terminated due to the occurrence of certain regulatory events, the Company must pay to ModSpace a $35 million termination fee.


The sellers who receive Common Stock and warrants pursuant to the Merger Agreement will receive customary registration rights, and will be subject to a six-month lock-up arrangement, under a registration rights agreement to be entered into on the closing date. The warrants issuable to the sellers will have an exercise price of $15.50 per share, will not be redeemable, and will expire on November 29, 2022.


The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 hereto, and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.
