Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

The consideration used to acquire beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock of the Issuer consisted of securities of Hyliion Inc. (“Legacy Hyliion”). The Reporting Persons acquired the shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of June 18, 2020 (the “Business Combination Agreement”), by and among Tortoise Acquisition Corp. (“Tortoise”), Legacy Hyliion and SHLL Merger Sub Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tortoise (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub merged (the “Merger”) with and into Legacy Hyliion, with Legacy Hyliion surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tortoise (which subsequently changed its name to “Hyliion Holdings Corp.”). Axioma Ventures used working capital in order to acquire the securities of Legacy Hyliion.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

The information provided in response to Items 2 and 3 hereof is incorporated herein by reference.

 

The Reporting Persons acquired the Common Stock for investment purposes in the Reporting Persons’ ordinary course of business. In pursuing such investment purposes, the Reporting Persons may further purchase, hold, vote, trade, dispose or otherwise deal in the Common Stock at times, and in such manner (including pursuant to hedging transactions), as they deem advisable to benefit from changes in market prices of the Common Stock, changes in the Issuer’s operations, business strategy or prospects, or from a sale or merger of the Issuer. To evaluate such alternatives, the Reporting Persons routinely will monitor the Issuer’s operations, prospects, business development, management, competitive and strategic matters, capital structure, and prevailing market conditions, as well as alternative investment opportunities, liquidity requirements of the Reporting Persons and other investment considerations. Consistent with their investment research methods and evaluation criteria, the Reporting Persons may discuss such matters with management or directors of the Issuer, other shareholders, industry analysts, existing or potential strategic partners or competitors, investment and financing professionals, sources of credit and other investors. Such factors and discussions may materially affect, and result in, the Reporting Persons’ modifying their ownership of the Common Stock, exchanging information with the Issuer pursuant to appropriate confidentiality or similar agreements, proposing changes in the Issuer’s operations, governance or capitalization, or in proposing one or more of the other actions described in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Persons reserve the right to formulate other plans and/or make other proposals, and take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer, including any or all of the actions set forth in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, or acquire additional shares of Common Stock or dispose of all shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by them, in the public market or privately negotiated transactions. The Reporting Persons may at any time reconsider and change their plans or proposals relating to the foregoing.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

  

  (a) – (b) The information relating to the beneficial ownership of Common Stock by each of the Reporting Persons set forth in Rows 7 through 13 of the cover pages hereto is incorporated by reference herein. The percentages set forth in Row 13 for all cover pages filed herewith are calculated based upon 153,901,829 shares of Common Stock outstanding, as set forth in the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 7, 2020.
     
(c) Except as set forth in Item 4 hereof, the Reporting Persons have not effected any transactions in the Common Stock in the sixty (60) days preceding the date of this Schedule 13D.

 

(d) Except as set forth in Item 6 hereof, no person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Common Stock reported herein.

 

(e) Not applicable.

 

The information in Items 4 and 6 hereof is incorporated by reference herein.

CUSIP No. 449109 107

  

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

 

The information in Items 2 and 3 is incorporated by reference herein.

 

In connection with the Merger, on October 1, 2020, the Issuer and certain stockholders of Legacy Hyliion, including Axioma Ventures, and executives of the Company (the “Legacy Holders”) entered into a Lock-Up Agreement (each, a “Lock-Up Agreement”). The terms of the Lock-Up Agreements provide for the Common Stock held by the Legacy Holders as of immediately after the Merger to be locked-up for a period of 180 days after the closing of the Merger, subject to certain exceptions.

 

In connection with the Merger, the Issuer entered into an Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement with several parties (the “Holders”), including Axioma Ventures, pursuant to which the Holders, subject to certain conditions, are entitled to registration rights with respect to securities of the Issuer (the “Registrable Securities”). Pursuant to this agreement, the Issuer agreed that, within 30 calendar days after the consummation of the Merger, it will file with the SEC a registration statement registering the resale of the Registrable Securities, and use its reasonable best efforts to have such registration statement declared effective by the SEC as soon as reasonably practicable after the filing thereof. Certain of the Holders were granted demand underwritten offering registration rights and all of the Holders were granted piggyback registration rights. The agreement terminates upon the earlier of (a) ten years following the Merger or (b) the date as of which the Holders cease to hold any registrable securities.

 

The Reporting Persons are parties to an agreement with respect to the joint filing of this Schedule 13D and any amendments hereto. A copy of such agreement is attached as Exhibit 1 to this Schedule 13D and is incorporated by reference herein.
