The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Gogo Inc. (the “Company”) has taken actions intended to protect the Company’s net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”) and certain other tax attributes. In that connection, the Board declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right (a “Right”), payable on September 23, 2020 for each outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) outstanding on October 2, 2020 (the “Record Date”) to the stockholders of record on that date. In connection with the distribution of the Rights, the Company entered into a Section 382 Rights Agreement (the “Rights Agreement”), dated as of September 23, 2020, between the Company and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as rights agent.

Each Right entitles the registered holder to purchase from the Company one one-thousandth of a share of Series A Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (the “Preferred Shares”) at a price of $38.40 per one one-thousandth of a Preferred Share represented by a Right (the “Purchase Price”), subject to adjustment.

The Rights are in all respects subject to and governed by the provisions of the Rights Agreement, which is incorporated herein by reference. The description of the Rights is incorporated herein by reference to the description set forth under Items 1.01 and 5.03 of the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on September 23, 2020 and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Rights Agreement.
