Item 8.01 Other Events
On May 28, 2024, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Court of Chancery”) issued a decision in the matter of Brown v. Matterport, Inc. and Matterport Operating, LLC (C.A. No. 2021-0595-LWW) (Del Ch.). In a January 10, 2022 post-trial opinion, the Court of Chancery held that plaintiff William Brown never held shares of Matterport, Inc. (the “Company”) that were subject to a lockup after the Company’s July 2021 de-SPAC transaction, and that, therefore, the Company had incorrectly restricted him from trading his shares. On May 28, 2024, the Court of Chancery issued a ruling awarding William Brown $79,092,133.12 plus pre- and post-judgment interest in damages as a result of his inability to trade his shares before the January 2022 post-trial opinion. The Company respectfully disagrees with the Court of Chancery’s ruling and anticipates appealing the ruling. The judgment does not impact the consideration expected to be paid to Matterport stockholders pursuant to the Company’s definitive agreement to be acquired by CoStar Group, Inc. dated April 21, 2024. The Company does not expect any insurance coverage to be available to it with respect to this matter.
