On February 4, 2024 (the “Effective Date”), Terran Orbital Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a settlement agreement and release of claims (the “Sophis Settlement Agreement”) with an investor group comprised of Austin Williams, Roland Coelho, Joseph Roos, Roark’s Drift, LLC, Jordi Puig-Suari, Sophis Investments LLC, Sophis GP LLC, and Tassos Recachinas (Sophis Investments LLC, Sophis GP LLC and Mr. Recachinas, “Sophis,” and together with Roark’s Drift and Messrs. Williams, Coelho, Roos and Puig-Suari, the “Sophis Group”).

Pursuant to the Sophis Settlement Agreement, each party in the Sophis Group agreed to vote any voting securities of the Company in favor of the nominees for director recommended by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) and in accordance with the Board’s recommendation with respect to any other matter presented to stockholders, subject to certain limited exceptions. Each party in the Sophis Group also agreed to certain customary standstill provisions for a period of one year beginning on the Effective Date, including with respect to not (i) acquiring beneficial ownership of more than 14.0% of any of the Company’s voting securities outstanding, (ii) nominating persons for election to the Board, (iii) submitting any proposal for consideration at any stockholder meeting, (iv) soliciting any proxy, consent or other authority to vote from stockholders, and (v) taking any other action in support of any changes to the Company’s management or corporate governance structure and other matters, including the separation of the Chair and CEO roles.

The Company has also agreed to appoint an independent director to fill the vacant seat on the Board.
