IV, a Delaware corporation), and its consolidated subsidiaries following the Closing (as defined below). Unless the context otherwise requires, references to “dMY IV” refer to dMY Technology Group, Inc. IV, a Delaware corporation, prior to the Closing. All references herein to the “Board” refer to the board of directors of the Company.

Terms used in this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) but not defined herein, or for which definitions are not otherwise incorporated by reference herein, shall have the meaning given to such terms in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus (as defined below) in the section entitled “Certain Defined Terms” beginning on page 2 thereof, and such definitions are incorporated herein by reference.

Due to the large number of events reported under the specified items of Form 8-K, this Report is being filed in two parts. An amendment to this Form 8-K is being submitted for filing on the same date to include additional matters under Items 3.03, 4.01, 5.03, 5.05 and 9.01 of Form 8-K.

Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Business Combination

As disclosed under the sections entitled “The Merger Agreement” beginning on page 129 of the proxy statement/prospectus (the “Proxy Statement/Prospectus”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by dMY IV on November 5, 2021, dMY IV entered into a merger agreement (the “Merger Agreement”), dated July 7, 2021, with Photon Merger Sub Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of dMY IV (“First Merger Sub”), Photon Merger Sub Two, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a direct wholly owned subsidiary dMY IV (“Second Merger Sub”), and Planet Labs Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Former Planet”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, First Merger Sub was merged with and into Former Planet (the “First Merger”) with Former Planet (the “Surviving Corporation”) surviving the First Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of dMY IV, and, pursuant to Former Planet’s election under the Merger Agreement, immediately following the First Merger and as part of the same overall transaction as the First Merger, the Surviving Corporation merged with and into dMY IV, with dMY IV surviving the merger (the “Second Merger” and together with the First Merger, the “Business Combination” and, together with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “Transactions”). dMY IV was then renamed Planet Labs PBC.

As previously reported on the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 6, 2021, dMY IV held a special meeting of stockholders on December 3, 2021 (the “Special Meeting”), at which the dMY IV stockholders considered and adopted, among other matters, a proposal to approve the Business Combination, including (a) adopting the Merger Agreement and (b) approving the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and related agreements described in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus.

Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, following the Special Meeting, on December 7, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), the Transactions were consummated (the “Closing”).

Item 2.01 of this Report discusses the consummation of the Transactions and the entry into agreements relating thereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement

On December 7, 2021, in connection with the consummation of the Business Combination and as contemplated by the Merger Agreement, Planet, dMY Sponsor IV, LLC (the “Sponsor”), certain affiliates of the Sponsor and certain former stockholders of Former Planet entered into the Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). The material terms of the Registration Rights Agreement are described in the section of the Proxy Statement/Prospectus beginning on page 149 titled “Ancillary Agreements Related to the


Business Combination —Registration Rights Agreement.” Such description is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Registration Rights Agreement, which is included as Exhibit 10.2 to this Report and is incorporated herein by reference.

Lock-Up Agreements

In connection with the consummation of the Business Combination, the Sponsor, dMY IV’s directors and officers, Former Planet’s founders, Former Planet’s executive officers and directors who shall continue on as executive officers and directors of Planet and other Former Planet stockholders who held at least 5% of Former Planet capital stock on an as-converted basis immediately prior to the Closing (collectively, the “Lock-Up Stockholders”) entered into lock-up agreements (the “Lock-Up Agreements”) with Planet, which place certain restrictions on the transfer of shares received by the Lock-Up Stockholders in connection with the Transactions. The material terms of the Lock-Up Agreements are described in the section of the Proxy Statement/Prospectus beginning on page 149 titled “Ancillary Agreements Related to the Business Combination—Lock-Up Agreements” and on page 150 titled “Ancillary Agreements Related to the Business Combination—Founder Share Vesting.” Such description is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Lock-Up Agreements, which are included as Exhibits 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5, respectively, to this Report and are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

As described above, on December 3, 2021, dMY IV held the Special Meeting, at which the dMY IV stockholders considered and adopted, among other matters, a proposal to approve the Merger Agreement and the Transactions. On December 7, 2021, the parties consummated the Business Combination. In connection with the Closing, the Company changed its name from dMY Technology Group, Inc. IV to Planet Labs PBC.

Holders of 689,670 shares of dMY IV Class A common stock sold in its initial public offering (the “Initial Shares”) properly exercised their right to have such shares redeemed for a full pro rata portion of the trust account holding the proceeds from dMY IV’s initial public offering, calculated as of two business days prior to the consummation of the business combination, which was approximately $10.00 per share, or $6.9 million in the aggregate.

As a result of the Business Combination, (a) each share of Class B common stock of Former Planet was converted into the right to receive approximately 1.53184 shares of Planet’s Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B Common Stock”) at the Closing and (b) each share of Former Planet capital stock (other than Former Planet Class B common stock) (other than in respect of (x) treasury shares, (y) shares of Planet common stock with respect to which appraisal rights have been perfected in accordance with applicable law, and (z) any shares of Planet capital stock subject to a Planet option (as defined below) or a Planet restricted stock unit award) was converted into the right to receive approximately 1.53184 shares of Planet’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”) at the Closing.

In addition, Former Planet equityholders will have the right to receive up to an additional 27 million shares in earnout consideration (the “Contingent Consideration”), of which up to approximately 24.6 million may be issued as shares of Planet’s Class A Common Stock and up to approximately 2.4 million may be issued to William Marshall and Robert Schingler, Jr. as shares of Planet’s Class B Common Stock. Mr. Marshall and Mr. Schingler were co-founders of Former Planet and in connection with the consummation of the Business Combination were appointed as Chief Executive Officer and chairman of the board of Planet and as Chief Strategy Officer and a member of the board of directors of Planet, respectively. The Contingent Consideration may be earned in four equal tranches (x) when the closing price of Planet’s Class A Common Stock equals or exceeds $15.00, $17.00, $19.00 and $21.00, over any 20 trading days within any 30 day trading period prior to the fifth anniversary of the Closing or (y) when Planet consummates a change of control transaction that entitles its stockholders to receive a per share consideration of at least $15.00, $17.00, $19.00 and $21.00. Any right to Contingent Consideration that remains unvested on the first business day after five years from Closing will be forfeited without any further consideration.

Additionally, the shares of dMY IV Class B common stock automatically converted to 8,625,000 shares of Class A Common Stock (of which 862,500 shares are subject to vesting under certain conditions).


Pursuant to subscription agreements entered into in connection with the Merger Agreement (collectively, the “Subscription Agreements”), certain investors agreed to subscribe for an aggregate of 25,200,000 newly issued shares of Class A Common Stock at a purchase price of $10.00 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $252,000,000 (the “PIPE Investment”). At the Closing, dMY IV consummated the PIPE Investment.

After giving effect to the Transactions, the redemption of Initial Shares as described above, and the consummation of the PIPE Investment, there were 241,542,778 shares of Class A Common Stock and 21,157,586 shares of Planet’s Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding.

The Class A Common Stock and warrants commenced trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbols “PL” and “PL WS”, respectively, on December 8, 2021.

FORM 10 INFORMATION

Item 2.01(f) of Form 8-K provides that if the predecessor registrant was a “shell company” (as such term is defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), as dMY IV was immediately before the Business Combination, then the registrant must disclose the information that would be required if the registrant were filing a general form for registration of securities on Form 10. As a result of the consummation of the Business Combination, and as discussed below in Item 5.06 of this Report, the Company has ceased to be a shell company. Accordingly, the Company is providing the information below that would be included in a Form 10 if it were to file a Form 10. Please note that the information provided below relates to the combined company after the consummation of the Business Combination, unless otherwise specifically indicated or the context otherwise requires.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Report includes statements that express Planet’s opinions, expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions or projections regarding future events or future results and therefore are, or may be deemed to be, “forward-looking statements.” These forward-looking statements can generally be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “believes,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “seeks,” “projects,” “intends,” “plans,” “may” or “should” or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include all matters that are not historical facts. They appear in a number of places throughout this Report (including in information that is incorporated by reference into this Report) and include statements regarding our intentions, beliefs or current expectations concerning, among other things, the Transactions and the benefits of the Transactions, including results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, growth, strategies and the markets in which Planet operates. Such forward-looking statements are based on available current market material and management’s expectations, beliefs and forecasts concerning future events impacting Planet. Factors that may impact such forward-looking statements include:

 

   

its success in retaining or recruiting, or changes required in, its officers, key employees or directors following the Business Combination;

 

   

its limited operating history;

 

   

whether a market for its data grows as expected as well as the timing of such growth and its ability to attract new customers;

 

   

its ability to retain existing customers and renew existing contracts;

 

   

its ability to sell additional data and analytic products or expand the scope of data services for its existing customers;

 

   

the competitiveness of its geospatial data set and analytic capabilities relative to other commercial satellite data providers, including Planet’s ability to continue to capture certain high-value government procurement contracts;


   

whether it is subject to any risks as a result of its global operations, including, but not limited to, being subject to any hostile actions by a government or other state actor;

 

   

whether it is subject to any cyber-attacks or other security incidents, and whether such actions, or any other events, compromise Planet’s satellites, satellite operations, infrastructure, archived data, information technology and communication systems and other related system;

 

   

the impact of its satellites failing to operate as intended or them being destroyed or otherwise becoming inoperable;

 

   

its ability to build satellites and procure third-party launch contracts at the same or lower cost as recent historical periods, in order to maintain or enhance the capabilities of its current operational satellite fleet;

 

   

ability to secure future financing, if needed, and whether Planet is able to repay its existing indebtedness when due;

 

   

its ability to increase its commercial sales organization;

 

   

its ability to respond to general economic conditions;

 

   

its ability to manage its growth effectively;

 

   

the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic;

 

   

the seasonality of its business, which can be impacted by customer behavior and buying patterns, and has historically been weighted towards the second half of the year;

 

   

its ability to comply with complex regulatory requirements; and

 

   

the continued development and evolution of its software platform to enhance the ease of use and accessibility of its data products for non-geospatial experts and thus facilitate expansion into new vertical markets.

The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section of the other documents filed by Planet from time to time with the SEC. The forward-looking statements contained in this Report and in any document incorporated by reference are based on current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on Planet. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting Planet will be those that Planet has anticipated. Planet undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.
