Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement


On December 21, 2020, Nesco Holdings, Inc. (“Nesco”) entered into Subscription Agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with certain investors (the “PIPE Investors”) to finance in part the previously announced acquisition of Custom Truck One Source (“CTOS”). Pursuant to the Subscription Agreements, concurrently with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Common Stock Purchase Agreement, dated December 3, 2020 (the “Investment Agreement”), between the Company and PE One Source Holdings, LLC, the PIPE Investors will purchase an aggregate of 28,000,000 shares of Nesco common stock at $5.00 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $140,000,000 (the “Private Placement”).


The Subscription Agreements will be terminated, and be of no further force and effect, upon the earlier to occur of (i) such date and time as the Investment Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms, (ii) upon the mutual written agreement of Nesco and the applicable PIPE Investor, or (iii) July 1, 2021.


As part of the transactions contemplated by the Subscription Agreements, the Company and the PIPE Investors will enter into a Registration Rights Agreement whereby the PIPE Investors will be entitled to certain demand and piggyback registration rights in respect of the shares of Nesco common stock issued in the Private Placement.


The form of Subscription Agreement (which includes as an exhibit a copy of the Registration Rights Agreement) is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report, and the foregoing description of the Subscription Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Subscription Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement.


Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities


The information contained in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.


As described in Item 1.01, under the terms of the Subscription Agreements, Nesco has agreed to issue shares of common stock to the PIPE Investors. The issuance and sale will be exempt from registration under the Securities Act, pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and/or Rule 506(c) of Regulation D of the Securities Act . Each PIPE Investor represented to Nesco that it is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act and that the common stock is being acquired for investment purposes and not with a view to, or for sale in connection with any distribution thereof, and appropriate legends will be affixed to any certificates evidencing the shares of common stock.


Item 8.01. Other Events.


On December 21, 2020, Nesco issued a press release announcing the execution of the Subscription Agreements. The full text of the Press Release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated by reference herein. As a result of the Private Placement and expected indebtedness upon closing of the CTOS acquisition, based on adjusted EBITDA for the twelve months ended September 30, 2020, net leverage for the combined business after giving effect to cost synergies would have been 4.1x. Additionally, attached as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report is an investor presentation used in connection with the Private Placement.
