Item 1.01.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement. 
 
Merger Agreement
 
On June 17, 2021 (the “Signing Date”), CAI International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc., a Japanese corporation (“Parent” or “MHC”), and Cattleya Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), relating to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Parent.
 
The Merger Agreement provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”) with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation in the Merger, and, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”):
 

each share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than Excluded Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement)) will cease to be outstanding and will be converted into the right to receive $56.00, in cash, without interest, subject to deductions of any applicable withholding taxes (the “Common Merger Consideration”);
 

each share of the Company’s 8.50% Series A Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, other than Excluded Shares, will be converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the sum of: (i) the liquidation preference of $25.00 per share, plus (ii) the aggregate amount of all accrued and unpaid dividends on such Series A Preferred Stock as of the Effective Time, in cash, without interest, subject to deductions of any applicable withholding taxes; and
 

each share of the Company’s 8.50% Series B Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock”) that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, other than Excluded Shares, will be converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the sum of: (i) the liquidation preference of $25.00 per share, plus (ii) the aggregate amount of all accrued and unpaid dividends on such Series B Preferred Stock as of the Effective Time, in cash, without interest, subject to deductions of any applicable withholding taxes.
 
In addition, as a result of the Merger:
 

each stock option that was granted pursuant to the Company’s equity incentive plans (the “Equity Incentive Plans”) that remains outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (each, an “Option”) that has a per share exercise price that is less than $56.00, will be cancelled at the Effective Time in exchange for an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the product of (x) the aggregate number of shares of common stock subject to such Option multiplied by (y) the excess of the Common Merger Consideration over the applicable per share exercise price of the Option, subject to any applicable withholding taxes;
 

each restricted stock unit that was granted pursuant to the Equity Incentive Plans and remains outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (each, an “RSU”) and each RSU that was granted pursuant to an Equity Incentive Plan, that is subject to vesting in part based on the achievement of corporate performance goals that have not been satisfied as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and that remains outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (each, a “PRSU”), will be cancelled and automatically converted at the Effective Time into the right to receive $56.00, in cash, without interest, for each share of common stock subject to the RSU or PRSU, subject to any applicable withholding taxes; and
 

each share of common stock that was issued under the Equity Incentive Plans that remains outstanding and unvested immediately prior to the Effective Time (each, an “RSA”) will become fully vested and free of any applicable forfeiture restrictions, effective as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and each such share of common stock will cease to be outstanding and will be converted into the right to receive $56.00, in cash, without interest, subject to deductions of any applicable withholding taxes.
 

The Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) unanimously approved, and declared, the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, to be advisable, fair to and in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders on the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement. Stockholders of the Company will be asked to vote on the approval of the Merger Agreement at a special meeting of the stockholders of the Company that will be held on a date to be announced in the future (the “Special Meeting”).
 
In addition, in connection with the Merger and in accordance with the Board’s authority under the Equity Incentive Plans, the Board has taken such actions as are necessary to cause (i) the performance conditions of each PRSU to be deemed satisfied at 100% of the relevant target level of achievement (notwithstanding any contrary provision in any agreement or document governing or evidencing the relevant PRSU) and (ii) each Option, PRSU, RSU and RSA to become fully vested and free of any applicable forfeiture restrictions, in each of clauses (i) and (ii), effective as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, including certain Options, RSUs, PRSUs and RSAs held by the members of the Board and the Company’s named executive officers, who collectively comprise all of the Company’s executive officers.
 
The closing of the Merger is subject to, among other conditions, (i) the adoption of the Merger Agreement by the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present in person (including by means of remote communication) or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on such proposal at the Special Meeting as of the record date for the Special Meeting (the “Company Stockholder Approval”), (ii) the completion of the migration of the jurisdiction of certain subsidiaries of the Company from Bermuda and Barbados to limited liability companies under Delaware law, including the obtainment of certain contractual consents in connection therewith (the “Migration”), and (iii) receipt of key contractual consents in connection with the Merger. Consummation of the Merger is not subject to a financing condition.
 
In addition to the foregoing conditions, consummation of the Merger is also subject to various customary conditions, including, but not limited to, the expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, making such other filings with any other governmental entities that may be required under applicable regulatory laws of certain other countries and the accuracy of the representations and warranties contained in the Merger Agreement, subject to customary materiality qualifications, and compliance with the covenants and agreements contained in the Merger Agreement as of the closing of the Merger.
 
The Company is subject to customary restrictions on its ability to solicit, initiate or knowingly take any action to facilitate or encourage Alternative Proposals (as defined in the Merger Agreement) from third parties and to provide non-public information to, and participate in discussions and engage in negotiations with, third parties regarding Alternative Proposals, with customary exceptions regarding the Board’s fiduciary duties under applicable law, including unsolicited Alternative Proposals (as defined in the Merger Agreement). The Board has agreed to recommend that the Company’s stockholders vote to adopt the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the merger, subject to certain customary exceptions regarding the Board’s fiduciary duties under applicable law.
 
The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights, including the right of the Company to terminate the Merger Agreement to accept a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), and provides that, upon termination of the Merger Agreement upon specified conditions, the Company will be required to pay Parent a termination fee of $35.0 million (the “Termination Fee”) or Parent may be required to pay the Company a termination fee of $35.0 million (the “Parent Termination Fee”). Upon any termination of the Merger Agreement in circumstances where the Termination Fee or the Parent Termination Fee is payable, the paying party will, in addition to payment of the Termination Fee or the Parent Termination Fee, as applicable, reimburse the receiving party for 100% of its out-of-pocket fees, costs, obligations owed to third parties and expenses (including reasonable fees and expenses of its counsel) actually incurred by it in connection with the consideration, negotiation or implementation of the Merger Agreement or the transactions contemplated thereby and other actions contemplated thereby in an amount not to exceed $5.0 million.
 

In addition, subject to certain exceptions and limitations set forth in the Merger Agreement, either party may terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger is not consummated by February 28, 2022 (the “End Date”). Subject to certain conditions and limitations set forth in the Merger Agreement, the Merger Agreement also provides for the payment by the Company to Parent of the Termination Fee if, following the termination of the Merger Agreement by the Parent or Company under specified circumstances,  the Company consummates a transaction with respect to any Alternative Proposal within 12 months after such termination, or signs a definitive agreement with respect to any Alternative Proposal within 12 months after such termination and such transaction is subsequently consummated.
 
The Company has made customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Merger Agreement, including, among others, covenants (1) to conduct its business in the ordinary course during the period between the Signing Date and the Effective Time, (2) not to engage in certain types of transactions during this period unless agreed to in writing by Parent, (3) to convene and hold the Special Meeting for the purpose of obtaining the Company Stockholder Approval, (4) subject to certain conditions, not to withdraw, amend, modify or materially qualify in a manner adverse to Parent, the recommendation of the Board that the Company’s stockholders approve the adoption of the Merger Agreement, (5) to use reasonable best efforts to defend through litigation on the merits any claim asserted in any court with respect to the transactions contemplated with respect to any required antitrust approval for the Merger, (6) to cooperate with Parent in connection with the financing for the Merger and (7) to complete the Migration.
 
The foregoing summary of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated by reference herein.
 
The Merger Agreement has been included to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Merger Agreement were made only for purposes of the Merger Agreement as of the specific dates therein, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Merger Agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Merger Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors.
 
Investors are not third-party beneficiaries under the Merger Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the parties thereto or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of representations and warranties may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
 
Item 5.02.

On June 17, 2021, the Board appointed Timothy B. Page, who had been serving as the Company’s Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, to serve as the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Mr. Page will continue to perform his duties as Chief Financial Officer of the Company in connection with this role.

Item 5.03.
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
 
On June 17, 2021, the Board approved an amendment (the “Bylaws Amendment”) to the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (as amended to date, the “Bylaws”), effective June 17, 2021, to add an exclusive forum provision as a new Section 11.3 of the Bylaws.
 
The Bylaws Amendment provides that unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (or, if the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware does not have jurisdiction, the federal district court for the District of Delaware) shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be the sole and exclusive forum for: (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Company; (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer, other employee or stockholder of the Company to the Company or the Company’s stockholders; (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware or as to which the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware confers jurisdiction on the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware; or (iv) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Company’s certificate of incorporation or the Bylaws or governed by the internal affairs doctrine.
 
In addition, the Bylaws Amendment provides that unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the federal district court for the District of Delaware (or if such court does not have jurisdiction over such action, any other federal district court of the United States), to the fullest extent permitted by law, shall be the sole and exclusive forum for the resolution of any claims arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
 
The foregoing summary of the Bylaws Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Bylaws Amendment, which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated by reference herein.

Section 3.2           Payment.
 
(a)       Paying Agent. Not fewer than three Business Days before the Closing Date, Parent shall (i) select a bank or trust company, satisfactory to the Company in its reasonable discretion, to act as the paying agent for the payment of the amounts to be paid pursuant to Section 3.1(a) (the “Paying Agent”) and (ii) enter into a paying agent agreement with the Paying Agent on terms and conditions that are satisfactory to the Company in its reasonable discretion (the “Paying Agent Agreement”). Parent shall be responsible for all fees and expenses of the Paying Agent.
 
(b)          Payment Fund. At or prior to the Effective Time, Parent shall deposit (or cause to be deposited) with the Paying Agent an amount, in cash, sufficient to make all payments pursuant to this Article III (such amount, the “Payment Fund”). If a Dissenting Stockholder effectively withdraws its demand for, or loses its, appraisal rights pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL with respect to any Dissenting Shares, Parent shall make available or cause to be made available to the Paying Agent additional funds in an amount equal to the product of (i) the number of Dissenting Shares for which the Dissenting Stockholder has withdrawn its demand for, or lost its, appraisal rights pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL and (ii) the applicable Merger Consideration for such Dissenting Shares. The Paying Agent shall invest the Payment Fund as directed by Parent provided that such investments shall be (A) in obligations of or guaranteed by the United States of America, (B) in commercial paper obligations rated A‑1 or P-1 or better by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. or Standard & Poor’s Financial Services LLC, respectively, (C) in certificates of deposit, bank repurchase agreements or banker’s acceptances of commercial banks with capital exceeding $10,000,000,000 or (D) in money market funds having a rating in the highest investment category granted by a recognized credit rating agency at the time of investment. Any interest and other income resulting from such investment shall become a part of the Payment Fund, and any amounts in excess of the aggregate amounts payable under this Article III shall be promptly returned to Parent (or its designee). To the extent that there are any losses with respect to any such investments, or the Payment Fund diminishes for any reason below the level required for the Paying Agent to make prompt cash payment under this Article III, Parent shall, or shall cause the Surviving Corporation to, promptly replace or restore the cash in the Payment Fund so as to ensure that the Payment Fund is at all times maintained at a level sufficient for the Paying Agent to make such aggregate payments under this Article III.
 
15

(c)          Payment Procedures.
 
(i)          Promptly after the Effective Time and in any event not later than the second Business Day following the Effective Time, Parent shall cause to be mailed to each record holder, as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, of Shares that have converted pursuant to Section 3.1(a) into the right to receive the applicable Merger Consideration with respect thereto a letter of transmittal in customary form containing instructions for use in effecting the surrender of the Certificates (the “Letter of Transmittal”). The Letter of Transmittal shall specify that delivery of Shares shall be effected, and risk of loss and title shall pass, only upon (x) in the case of certificated Shares, proper delivery of the Certificates to the Paying Agent and (y) in the case of Book-Entry Shares, reasonable and customary provisions regarding delivery of an “agent’s message” with respect to such Book-Entry Shares.
 
(ii)        In the case of certificated Shares, upon surrender to the Paying Agent of a Certificate representing any such Shares that have been converted into the right to receive Merger Consideration pursuant to Section 3.1(a), together with a Letter of Transmittal, duly completed and validly executed in accordance with the instructions thereto, Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to deliver to the record holder of such Certificate a check or wire transfer for the amount of applicable Merger Consideration for each Share formerly represented by such Certificate, and such Certificate shall then be canceled.
 
(iii)        With respect to Book-Entry Shares, upon receipt by Paying Agent of an “agent’s message” (or such other evidence, if any, of transfer as the Paying Agent may reasonably request) with respect to any Book-Entry Shares representing any Shares that have been converted in the right to receive Merger Consideration pursuant to Section 3.1(a), Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to deliver to the record holder of such Book‑Entry Shares a check or wire transfer for the amount of Merger Consideration that such record holder is entitled to receive pursuant to Section 3.1(a) of this Agreement in respect of such Book‑Entry Shares, and such Book‑Entry Shares shall then be canceled.
 
(iv)       No interest shall be paid or accrued on the cash payable upon the surrender or transfer of any Certificate or Book-Entry Share. In the event of a transfer of ownership of Shares that is not registered in the transfer records of the Company, or if payment of the Merger Consideration is to be made to a Person other than the Person in whose name the surrendered Certificate is registered, it shall be a condition of payment that such Certificate so surrendered shall be properly endorsed or shall be otherwise in proper form for transfer or such Book‑Entry Share shall be properly transferred and that the Person requesting such payment shall have paid any transfer and other taxes required by reason of the payment of the Merger Consideration to a Person other than the registered holder of the Certificate or Book‑Entry Share surrendered or shall have established to the reasonable satisfaction of Parent or the Paying Agent that such Tax either has been paid or is not applicable.
 
(v)        Promptly after the Effective Time, and in any event, not later than the first Business Day after the Effective Time, the Paying Agent shall deliver to the Surviving Corporation an amount, in cash, sufficient to make all payments pursuant to Section 3.3, and Parent shall cause, promptly after the receipt of such payment by the Surviving Corporation, and in any event no later than ten Business Days following the Closing Date, each Option Holder and RSU Holder to be paid through a payroll or other appropriate account of the Surviving Corporation or any its Affiliates the amounts provided for in Section 3.3, subject to deductions of any applicable withholding Tax in accordance with Section 3.2(h).
 
(d)        Transfers. From and after the Effective Time, the stock transfer books of the Company shall be closed with respect to Shares and there shall be no transfers on the stock transfer books of the Company of any Shares. If, after the Effective Time, any Person presents to the Surviving Corporation, Parent or Paying Agent any Certificates for transfer or any transfer instructions relating to Shares canceled in the Merger, such Person shall be given a copy of the Letter of Transmittal and directed to comply with the instructions in that letter of transmittal in order to receive any cash to which such Person is entitled pursuant to this Article III.
 
16

(e)         Termination of Payment Fund. Any portion of the Payment Fund (including the proceeds of any investments thereof) that remains unclaimed by the record holders of Shares as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than Excluded Shares) for 12 months after the Effective Time shall be delivered to the Surviving Corporation (or its designee). Any record holder of Shares as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than Excluded Shares) who has not complied with this Article III prior to the date that is 12 months after the Effective Time shall thereafter look only to the Surviving Corporation (subject to abandoned property, escheat or similar laws) only as a general creditor thereof for payment of the applicable Merger Consideration for such Shares upon compliance with the instructions in the Letter of Transmittal, without any interest thereon. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Parent nor the Surviving Corporation shall be liable to any record holder of Shares as of immediately prior to the Effective Time for any amount properly delivered to a public official pursuant to applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar laws. All cash paid upon the surrender of Certificates in accordance with the terms of this Article III shall be deemed to have been paid in full satisfaction of all rights pertaining to the Shares formerly represented by such Certificates.
 
(f)          Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Certificates. If any Certificate shall have been lost, stolen, or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the Person claiming such Certificate to be lost, stolen, or destroyed, and, if required by the Surviving Corporation, the posting by such Person of a bond, in such reasonable amount as the Surviving Corporation may direct, as indemnity against any claim that may be made against it with respect to such Certificate, the Paying Agent will issue, in exchange for such lost, stolen, or destroyed Certificate, the Merger Consideration to be paid in respect of the Shares formerly represented by such Certificate as contemplated under this Article III.
 
(g)          Dissenting Shares. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, any Shares which are held immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger by a stockholder who did not vote in favor of the Merger (or consent thereto in writing) and who is entitled to demand and properly demands appraisal of such Shares (the “Dissenting Shares”) pursuant to, and who complies in all respects with, the provisions of Section 262 of the DGCL (the “Dissenting Stockholders”), shall not be converted into or be exchangeable for the right to receive the applicable Merger Consideration, but instead such holder shall be entitled only to such rights as are accorded under Section 262 of the DGCL (and at the Effective Time, such Dissenting Shares shall no longer be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and shall cease to exist, and such holder shall cease to have any rights with respect thereto, except the rights set forth in Section 262 of the DGCL), unless and until such holder shall have failed to perfect or shall have effectively withdrawn or lost its right to appraisal under the DGCL. If any Dissenting Stockholder shall have failed to perfect or shall have effectively withdrawn or lost such right, such holder’s Shares shall thereupon be treated as if they had been converted into the right to receive, as of the Effective Time, the applicable Merger Consideration for each such Share, in accordance with Section 3.1, without interest and subject to deductions of any applicable withholding Tax in accordance with Section 3.2(h). The Company shall give Parent prompt notice of any demand for appraisal or attempted withdrawal of such demand that is received by the Company relating to Company stockholders’ rights of appraisal. Parent shall have the right to direct all negotiations and proceedings with respect to all demands for appraisal by Company stockholders under the DGCL. Except to the extent required by applicable Law, the Company shall not voluntarily offer to make, or otherwise negotiate or make any payment with respect to any demand for appraisal without the prior written consent of Parent, not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
 
17

(h)       Withholding Rights. Each of Parent, Merger Sub, the Surviving Corporation and the Paying Agent shall be entitled, without duplication, to deduct and withhold from any consideration otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement such amounts as may be required to be deducted and withheld with respect to the making of such payment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Code”), or any other applicable state, local or non-U.S. Tax law. To the extent that amounts are so withheld by Parent, Merger Sub, the Surviving Corporation or the Paying Agent, as the case may be, such withheld amounts shall be (i) timely remitted by Parent, Merger Sub, the Surviving Corporation or the Paying Agent, as applicable, to the applicable Governmental Authority, and (ii) to the extent remitted pursuant to the foregoing subsection (i), treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the Person in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made by Parent, Merger Sub, the Surviving Corporation or the Paying Agent, as the case may be.
 
Section 3.3           Treatment of Company Equity Awards.
 
(a)        Prior to the Effective Time, the Company Board or a committee thereof shall take such actions as are necessary to cause (i) the performance conditions of each PRSU to be deemed satisfied at 100% of the relevant target level of achievement (notwithstanding any contrary provision in any agreement or document governing or evidencing the relevant PRSU) and (ii) each Option, PRSU, RSU and share of Restricted Stock to become fully vested and free of any applicable forfeiture restrictions, in each of clauses (i) and (ii), effective as of immediately prior to the Effective Time.
 
(b)         In-the-Money Company Options. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, and without any action on the part of Parent, Merger Sub, the Company or any Option Holder, each Option that has a per share exercise price that is less than the Common Merger Consideration, shall not be assumed by Parent and shall instead be cancelled at the Effective Time in exchange for a payment by Parent of an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the product of (x) the aggregate number of Shares subject to such Option multiplied by (y) the excess of the Common Merger Consideration over the applicable per share exercise price of the Option. As of the Effective Time, each Option Holder shall cease to have any rights with respect thereto, except the right to receive the foregoing consideration. All payments under this Section 3.3(b) shall be made at or as soon as practicable following the Effective Time, pursuant to the Company’s or the Surviving Corporation’s ordinary payroll practices, and shall be subject to any applicable withholding Taxes.
 
(c)         Out-of-the-Money Company Options. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, and without any action on the part of Parent, Merger Sub, the Company or any Option Holder, each Option that has a per share exercise price that is equal to or greater than the Common Merger Consideration shall to the extent not exercised as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, be automatically cancelled at the Effective Time with no payment made therefor and shall cease to represent a right to purchase shares of Common Stock.
 
(d)        RSUs and PRSUs. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, and without any action on the part of Parent, Merger Sub, the Company or any RSU Holder, each RSU and PRSU shall not be assumed by Parent and shall be cancelled and automatically converted at the Effective Time into the right to receive the Common Merger Consideration in cash, without interest, for each share of Common Stock subject to the RSU or PRSU. As of the Effective Time, each RSU Holder shall cease to have any rights with respect thereto, except to receive the foregoing consideration. All payments under this Section 3.3(d) shall be made at or as soon as practicable following the Effective Time, pursuant to the Company’s or the Surviving Corporation’s ordinary payroll practices, and shall be subject to any applicable withholding Taxes.
 
18

(e)        Company ESPP. Simultaneously in connection with the execution of this Agreement, the Company shall: (i) cause any offering period (or similar period during which shares may be purchased) in progress under the Company ESPP as of the date of this Agreement to be the final offering period under the Company ESPP and to be terminated as of the date of this Agreement (the “Final Exercise Date”); (ii) make any pro-rata adjustments that may be necessary to reflect the shortened offering period (or similar period), but otherwise treat such shortened offering period (or similar period) as a fully effective and completed offering period for all purposes under the Company ESPP; and (iii) cause each participant’s then-outstanding share purchase right under the Company ESPP (the “Company ESPP Rights”) to terminate as of the Final Exercise Date. Thereafter, the Company shall terminate the Company ESPP no later than the Effective Time. On the Final Exercise Date, to the extent sufficient funds have been credited as of such date under the Company ESPP within the associated accumulated payroll withholding accounts for participants to fund a share purchase for a reasonable number of shares, then such funds shall be used to purchase shares of Common Stock in accordance with the terms of the Company ESPP, and otherwise the current offering period shall terminate without a final purchase.  Each share purchased thereunder prior to the Effective Time shall be cancelled at the Effective Time and converted into the right to receive the Common Merger Consideration in accordance with Section 3.1(a), subject to withholding of any applicable income and employment withholding Taxes. Any accumulated contributions of each participant under the Company ESPP following the Final Exercise Date shall, to the extent not used to purchase shares in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Company ESPP (as amended pursuant to this Section 3.3(e)), be refunded to such participant as promptly as practicable following the Final Exercise Date (without interest). No further Company ESPP Rights shall be granted or exercised under the Company ESPP after the Final Exercise Date.
 
Section 3.4        Adjustments. Without limiting the other provisions of this Agreement, if at any time during the period between the date of this Agreement and the Effective Time, any change in the outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company or securities convertible or exchangeable into or exercisable for Shares issued and outstanding prior to the Effective Time, shall occur (other than the issuance of additional shares of capital stock of the Company as permitted by this Agreement), including by reason of any reclassification, recapitalization, stock split (including a reverse stock split), or combination, exchange, readjustment of shares, or similar transaction, or any stock dividend or distribution paid in stock, then any number or amount contained herein which is based upon the number of Shares, the applicable Merger Consideration and any other similarly dependent items shall be equitably adjusted to reflect such change; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 3.4 shall be deemed to permit or authorize the Company to effect any such change that it is not otherwise authorized or permitted to undertake pursuant to this Agreement.

Each of Parent and Merger Sub has duly executed and delivered this Agreement and, assuming the due authorization, execution and delivery by the Company, this Agreement constitutes its legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms except, in each case, as enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar Laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and by general principles of equity.

Section 6.2           Proxy Statement.
 
(a)        As soon as reasonably practicable following the date of this Agreement (and in no event later than fifteen (15) Business Days following the date of this Agreement), the Company shall, in consultation with Parent, prepare and file with the SEC in preliminary form a proxy statement (together with any amendments thereof or supplements thereto, the “Proxy Statement”) relating to the meeting of the Company’s stockholders held for the purpose of approving and adopting this Agreement and the Transactions, including the Merger (including any adjournment or postponement thereof, the “Company Stockholders Meeting”). Parent, Merger Sub and the Company will cooperate with each other in the preparation of the Proxy Statement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each of Parent and Merger Sub will furnish to the Company the information relating to it required by the Exchange Act to be set forth in the Proxy Statement, and such information, at the date the Proxy Statement is first mailed to the Company’s stockholders and at the time of the Company Stockholders Meeting, will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading. The Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to respond to all SEC comments with respect to the Proxy Statement as promptly as reasonably practicable after receipt thereof and file all necessary amendments thereto in connection with such SEC comments. The Company shall promptly notify Parent and Merger Sub of the receipt of any comments from the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) with respect to the Proxy Statement and any request by the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) for any amendment to the Proxy Statement or for additional information and shall consult with Parent regarding, and provide Parent with copies of, all correspondence between the Company or any of its representatives, on the one hand, and the SEC or its staff, on the other hand, with respect to the Proxy Statement. Prior to filing or mailing the Proxy Statement (or any amendment or supplement thereto) or responding to any comments of the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) with respect thereto, the Company shall provide Parent a reasonable opportunity to review and to propose comments on such document or response and the Company shall in good faith consider including all such comments proposed by Parent, but the Company shall not be obligated to incorporate any such comments. The Company shall, after the date on which the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) confirms that it has no further comments on the Proxy Statement, cause the Proxy Statement to be mailed to the Record Holders entitled to vote at the Company Stockholders Meeting, and shall cause the Company Stockholders Meeting to be held as soon as reasonably practicable following such mailing (but in no event more than 45 days after the date of such mailing).
 
(b)        The Proxy Statement, at the date it is first mailed to the Company’s stockholders, or at the time of the Company Stockholders Meeting, shall not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements made therein not false or misleading in light of the circumstances under which they are made. The Proxy Statement will comply as to form in all material respects with the requirements of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any obligations of the Company with respect to this Section 6.2(b) do not extend to statements made or incorporated by reference in the Proxy Statement based on information supplied by Parent or Merger Sub in writing for inclusion or incorporation by reference therein.
 
(c)        If at any time prior to the Company Stockholders Meeting any information relating to the Company or Parent, or any of their respective Affiliates, should be discovered by the Company or Parent which, in the reasonable judgment of the Company or Parent (as applicable), should be set forth in an amendment or supplement to the Proxy Statement, so that the Proxy Statement shall not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading, the party which discovers such information shall promptly notify the other party, and an appropriate amendment or supplement describing such information promptly shall be filed with the SEC and, to the extent required by applicable Law, disseminated to the stockholders of the Company.

 Section 6.3       Company Stockholders Meeting. The Company, acting through the Company Board, shall (a) as soon as reasonably practicable following confirmation by the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) that it has no further comments on the Proxy Statement take all action necessary to set a record date for, duly call, give notice of, convene and hold the Company Stockholders Meeting; and (b) subject to Section 6.4, include in the Proxy Statement the Company Board Recommendation and use its reasonable best efforts to obtain the Company Stockholder Approval. As soon as reasonably practicable following the date of this Agreement (and thereafter, upon the reasonable request of Parent made not more than one time every week), the Company shall conduct a “broker search” in accordance with Rule 14a-13 of the Exchange Act for a record date for the Company Stockholders’ Meeting that is twenty (20) business days after the date of such “broker search.” Unless the Agreement has been duly terminated in accordance with the terms herein, the Company shall, subject to the right of the Company Board (or a committee thereof) to modify its recommendation in a manner adverse to Parent under the circumstances specified in Section 6.4, use commercially reasonable efforts to solicit from the stockholders of the Company proxies in favor of the proposal to adopt this Agreement and approve the Merger and the Transactions and to secure the Company Stockholder Approval (it being understood that the foregoing shall not require the Company Board (or a committee thereof) to recommend in favor of the adoption of this Agreement, if a Company Adverse Recommendation Change has been effected in accordance with Section 6.4(d)). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Company may not adjourn or postpone the Company Stockholders Meeting without the prior written consent of Parent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), except (i) as required by applicable Law, (ii) if the Company reasonably believes in good faith that it is necessary to ensure that any supplement or amendment to the Proxy Statement that is legally required or may be advisable (including in the event that, and respect of, any objection that is raised by any stockholder of the Company to the sufficiency or accuracy of the Proxy Statement) is timely provided to the stockholders of the Company, or (iii)  if as of the time for which the Company Stockholders Meeting is originally scheduled (as set forth in the Proxy Statement), there are insufficient shares of the Common Stock (either in person, or by means of remote communication, or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business of the Company Stockholders Meeting, or if on the date of such Company Stockholders Meeting, the Company has not received proxies representing a sufficient number of shares of the Common Stock necessary to obtain the Company Stockholder Approval and except to the extent that the Company Board shall have made a Company Adverse Recommendation Change as permitted by (and solely pursuant to the terms of) Section 6.4), the Company shall continue to use all reasonable best efforts to assist in the solicitation of proxies from stockholders relating to the Company Stockholder Approval; provided, that unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the Company Stockholders Meeting may not be postponed or adjourned to a date that is more than 10 days after the date for which the then most-recent Company Stockholders Meeting was scheduled (excluding any adjournments or postponements required by applicable Law). The Company agrees that no matters shall be brought before the Company Stockholders Meeting other than the proposal to obtain the Company Stockholder Approval, the related “golden parachute” vote under Rule 14a-21(c) of the Exchange Act and any related and customary procedural matters (including a proposal to adjourn the Company Stockholders Meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies for the purpose of obtaining the Company Stockholder Approval). The Company shall keep Parent informed on a reasonably current basis regarding its solicitation efforts and proxy tallies following the dissemination of the Proxy Statement to the holders of the Shares; provided, that the Company shall, upon the request of Parent, use its reasonable best efforts to cause the applicable proxy solicitor of the Company to advise Parent on a not less than daily basis during the last ten (10) Business Days prior to the date of the Company Stockholders Meeting as to the aggregate tally of the proxies received by the Company with respect to the Company Stockholder Approval.

Except as expressly permitted by this Section 6.4, the Company Board shall not effect a Company Adverse Recommendation Change. Except as expressly permitted by this Section 6.4, until the Effective Time, or, if earlier, the termination of this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with Section 8.3(a), the Company shall, and shall cause the Company Subsidiaries to, cease immediately and cause to be terminated any and all existing activities, discussions, or negotiations, if any, with any third party conducted prior to the date hereof with respect to any Alternative Proposal, and the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause (and shall send written notice demanding that) any such third party (or its agents or advisors) in possession of non-public information in respect of the Company or any Company Subsidiary that was furnished by or on behalf of the Company and the Company Subsidiaries to return or destroy all such information.
 
(b)         Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Section 6.4, prior to the receipt of the Company Stockholder Approval, the Company Board (or a committee thereof), directly or indirectly through any Representative, may, subject to Section 6.4(c): (i) participate in negotiations or discussions with any third party, that has made (and not withdrawn) a bona fide Alternative Proposal in writing that was not solicited in violation of Section 6.4(a) that the Company Board (or a committee thereof) believes in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel and its financial advisor, constitutes or could reasonably be expected to result in a Superior Proposal; (ii) enter into, and thereafter furnish to such third party non-public information relating to the Company or any Company Subsidiaries pursuant to, an executed confidentiality agreement that constitutes an Acceptable Confidentiality Agreement (a copy of such third party non-public information (to the extent such non-public information has not been previously made available by the Company to Parent) and such Acceptable Confidentiality Agreement shall be provided to Parent substantially contemporaneously); (iii) following receipt of and on account of a Superior Proposal, and subject to Section 6.4(d) and Section 6.4(f), make a Company Adverse Recommendation Change or terminate this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with Section 8.3(a); or (iv) take any action that any court of competent jurisdiction orders the Company to take (which order remains unstayed), but, in each case referred to in the foregoing clauses (i) through (iv), only if the Company Board (or a committee thereof) determines in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel and its financial advisor, that the failure to take such action would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under applicable Law or in violation of any Order of a court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall prevent the Company Board (or a committee thereof) from disclosing to the Company’s stockholders a position under Rule 14d-9 and Rule 14e-2(a) promulgated under the Exchange Act with regard to an Alternative Proposal, if the Company Board (or a committee thereof) determines, after consultation with outside legal counsel, that failure to disclose such position would constitute a violation of applicable Law; provided, that, any such disclosure that would otherwise constitute a Company Adverse Recommendation Change shall only be made in accordance with Section 6.4(d) or Section 6.4(e), as applicable.
 
46

(c)          Neither the Company Board nor any committee thereof shall take any of the actions referred to in clauses (i) through (iv) of Section 6.4(b) unless the Company shall have delivered to Parent a prior written notice advising Parent that it intends to take such action. The Company shall notify Parent promptly (and in no event later than one Business Day) after it obtains (i) knowledge of the receipt by the Company (or any of its Representatives) of any Alternative Proposal, (ii) any inquiry that would reasonably be expected to lead to an Alternative Proposal, (iii) any request for non-public information relating to the Company or any Company Subsidiary or for access to the business, properties, assets, books, or records of the Company or any Company Subsidiaries by any third party in connection with an Alternative Proposal. In such notice, the Company shall identify the third party making, and the material terms and conditions of, any such Alternative Proposal, indication or request. The Company shall keep Parent reasonably informed of the status and material terms of any such Alternative Proposal, indication or request, including any material amendments or material proposed amendments as to price and other material terms thereof.
 
(d)        Except as expressly permitted by this Section 6.4, neither the Company Board or any committee thereof shall effect a Company Adverse Recommendation Change, enter into a Company Acquisition Agreement or terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.3(a). Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time prior to the receipt of the Company Stockholder Approval, the Company Board (or any committee thereof) may effect a Company Adverse Recommendation Change or terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.3(a) and enter into a Company Acquisition Agreement, if: (i) the Company notifies Parent, in writing, at least four Business Days (the “Superior Proposal Notice Period”) before making a Company Adverse Recommendation Change or terminating the Agreement pursuant to Section 8.3(a) and entering into a Company Acquisition Agreement, of its intention to take such action with respect to a Superior Proposal (which notice shall not, by itself, constitute a Company Adverse Recommendation Change), which notice shall state expressly that the Company has received an Alternative Proposal that the Company Board (or a committee thereof) has determined in good faith, after consulting with outside legal counsel and its financial advisor, constitutes a Superior Proposal and that the Company Board (or a committee thereof) intends to effect a Company Adverse Recommendation Change; (ii) the Company attaches to such notice the most current version of the proposed agreement reflecting the Superior Proposal and any material documents related thereto, and summarizes in reasonable detail any material terms and conditions of such Superior Proposal that are not reflected in the proposed agreement with respect to such Superior Proposal and the identity of the third party making such Superior Proposal; (iii) during the Superior Proposal Notice Period, the Company negotiates with Parent in good faith, and causes its Representatives to negotiate with Parent in good faith, to make such adjustments in the terms and conditions of this Agreement so that such Alternative Proposal ceases to constitute a Superior Proposal, if Parent, in its discretion, proposes in good faith to make such adjustments (it being agreed that in the event that, after commencement of the Superior Proposal Notice Period, there is any material revision to the terms of a Superior Proposal, including any revision in price, the Superior Proposal Notice Period shall be extended, if applicable, to ensure that at least three Business Days remain in the Superior Proposal Notice Period subsequent to the time the Company notifies Parent of any such material revision); and (iv) the Company Board (or a committee thereof) determines in good faith, after consulting with outside legal counsel and its financial advisor, that such Alternative Proposal continues to constitute a Superior Proposal after taking into account any adjustments made by Parent during the Superior Proposal Notice Period to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
 
47

(e)          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 6.4(a)-(d), but subject to Section 6.4 and the last sentence of this Section 6.4(e), prior to the receipt of the Company Stockholder Approval, the Company Board (or a committee thereof) may effect a Company Adverse Recommendation Change if: (i) an Intervening Event occurs, (ii) the Company Board (or such committee) determines in good faith, after consulting with outside legal counsel and its financial advisor that the failure to effect such Company Adverse Recommendation Change would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under applicable Law, (iii) prior to effecting the Company Adverse Recommendation Change, the Company promptly notifies Parent, in writing, at least two Business Days (the “Company Adverse Recommendation Notice Period”) before taking such action of the Company Board’s (or such committee’s) intent to consider such action (which notice shall not, by itself, constitute a Company Adverse Recommendation Change), and which notice shall include a reasonably detailed description of the underlying facts giving rise to the Intervening Event, and the reasons the Company Board (or such committee) proposes to take such action; (iv) the Company shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, during the Company Adverse Recommendation Notice Period, negotiate with Parent in good faith to make such adjustments in the terms and conditions of this Agreement so that the underlying facts giving rise to the Intervening Event, and the reasons the Company Board (or such committee) proposes to take such action, cease to constitute circumstances causing the Company Board to propose making a Company Adverse Recommendation Change, if Parent, in its discretion, proposes in good faith to make such adjustments; and (v) the Company Board (or such committee) determines in good faith, after consulting with outside legal counsel and its financial advisor and taking into account any adjustments made by Parent during the Company Adverse Recommendation Notice Period, that the failure to effect such Company Adverse Recommendation Change would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under applicable Law. The Company acknowledges and hereby agrees that any Company Adverse Recommendation Change effected (or proposed to be effected) in response to or in connection with any Alternative Proposal may be made solely and exclusively pursuant to Section 6.4(d) only, and may not be made pursuant to this Section 6.4(e), and any Company Adverse Recommendation Change may only be made pursuant to this Section 6.4 and no other provisions of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, an “Intervening Event” means any event, change, effect, development or occurrence, or any consequence thereof, that becomes known to the Company Board after the date of this Agreement that (i) was not known, (or if known, the consequences of which were not reasonably foreseeable), to the Company Board as of or prior to the date of this Agreement and did not result from a breach of this Agreement by the Company and (ii) does not relate to or involve an Alternative Proposal.
 
(f)         Notwithstanding any Company Adverse Recommendation Change, unless this Agreement has been earlier terminated in accordance with Article VIII (including by the Company under Section 8.3(a)), this Agreement shall be submitted to Company’s shareholders at the Company Stockholders Meeting for the purpose of voting on the approval of this Agreement and the Transactions (including the Merger) and nothing contained herein shall be deemed to relieve Company of such obligation; provided, however, that if the Company Board shall have made a Company Adverse Recommendation Change (i) with respect to a Superior Proposal, then the Company Board may recommend approval of such Superior Proposal by the shareholders of Company or (ii) based on a Intervening Event, then the Company Board may submit this Agreement to Company’s shareholders without recommendation, in which event the Company Board shall communicate the basis for its recommendation of such Superior Proposal or the basis for its lack of a recommendation with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby to Company’s shareholders in the Proxy Statement or an appropriate amendment or supplement thereto.

Section 6.5           Filings; Efforts to Consummate.
 
(a)        Subject to the terms and conditions herein provided, each of Parent and the Company shall use their respective reasonable best efforts to reasonably promptly take, or cause to be taken, all action and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable under this Agreement and applicable Laws to consummate, and make effective as reasonably promptly as practicable after the date hereof, the Transactions, including (i) preparing and filing with a Governmental Authority as reasonably promptly as practicable all applications, notices, petitions, filings, ruling requests, and other documents necessary to consummate the Transactions and to obtain as reasonably promptly as practicable all Consents necessary to be obtained from any Governmental Authority in order to consummate the Transactions (collectively, the “Governmental Approvals”), (ii) as reasonably promptly as practicable taking all steps as may be commercially reasonable to obtain all such Governmental Approvals and (iii) obtaining and maintaining all approvals and consents from, and providing all notices to, any other third party that are necessary to consummate the Transactions (including, for the avoidance of doubt, those required to maintain in effect after the Closing all Contracts relating to the Company’s Indebtedness without any default thereunder), including those set forth on Schedule 6.5. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, each party hereto agrees to (A) make an appropriate and complete filing of a Notification and Report Form pursuant to the HSR Act with respect to the Transactions within fifteen (15) Business Days of the date of this Agreement and, unless otherwise agreed by the parties; (B) make all other filings that are required to be made in order to consummate the Transactions pursuant to other Regulatory Laws with respect to the Transactions, including without limitation, any such filings required pursuant to the Regulatory Laws of (1) the Republic of Korea and Turkey and (2) any other countries outside of the United States, in each case pertaining to pre-merger notification and regulation of terms and conditions of merger transactions, as reasonably promptly as practicable; and (C) not extend any waiting period under the HSR Act, or enter into any agreement with the FTC, the DOJ or any other Governmental Authority not to consummate the Transactions, except with the prior written consent of the other party hereto (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). Parent and the Company shall supply as reasonably promptly as practicable any additional information or documentation that may be requested pursuant to the HSR Act or any other Regulatory Law and use its reasonable best efforts to take all other actions necessary, proper or advisable to cause the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting periods under the HSR Act and any other Regulatory Law as soon as practicable (including complying with any “second request” for information or similar request from a Governmental Authority pursuant to other Regulatory Laws).  The foregoing notwithstanding, to the extent there is a conflict between this Section 6.5 and Section 6.17 with respect to actions to be taken in connection with the Migration, Section 6.17 shall control and govern.
 
(b)        In connection with the actions referenced in Section 6.5(a) to obtain all Governmental Approvals for the Transactions under the HSR Act or any other Regulatory Laws, each of Parent and the Company shall: (i) cooperate in all respects with each other in connection with any communication, filing or submission and in connection with any investigation or other inquiry, including any proceeding initiated by a private party; (ii) keep the other party and its counsel promptly informed of any communication received by such party from, or given by such party to, the FTC, the DOJ or any other U.S. or other Governmental Authority and of any communication received or given in connection with any proceeding by a private party, in each case regarding any of the Transactions; (iii) consult with each other in advance of any meeting or conference with the FTC, the DOJ or any other Governmental Authority or, in connection with any proceeding by a private party, with any other person, and to the extent permitted by the FTC, the DOJ or such other Governmental Authority or other person, give the other party or its counsel the opportunity to attend and participate in such meetings and conferences; and (iv) permit the other party and its counsel to review in advance any submission, filing or communication (and documents submitted therewith) intended to be given by it to the FTC, the DOJ or any other Governmental Authority; provided that materials may be redacted to remove references concerning the valuation of the businesses of the Company and the Company Subsidiaries. Parent and the Company may, as each deems advisable and necessary, reasonably designate any competitively sensitive material to be provided to the other under this Section 6.5(b) as “Antitrust Counsel Only Material.” Such materials and the information contained therein shall be given only to the outside antitrust counsel of the recipient and will not be disclosed by such outside counsel to employees, officers or directors of the recipient unless express permission is obtained in advance from the source of the materials (Parent or the Company, as the case may be) or its legal counsel. In furtherance and not in limitation of the covenants of the parties contained in Section 6.5(a) and Section 6.5(b), Parent and the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to defend through litigation on the merits any claim asserted in any court with respect to the Transactions by the FTC, the DOJ or any other applicable Governmental Authority.
 
49

(c)         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, (A) Parent shall not be required to (and the Company shall not, without the consent of Parent) (x) propose, negotiate, commit to or effect, by consent decree, hold separate order, or otherwise, the sale, divestiture or disposition of any business, product line, asset, contractual right, or relationship of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries (other than the Company and the Company Subsidiaries) or (y) otherwise take or commit to take any action that after the Closing may limit Parent’s or its Subsidiaries’ or its Affiliates’ (other than the Company and the Company Subsidiaries’) freedom of action with respect to, or its or their ability to operate or retain, one or more of the businesses, product lines or assets of Parent or its Subsidiaries or Affiliates (other than the Company and the Company Subsidiaries) or (z) enter into any settlement, undertaking, consent decree, stipulation or agreement with any Governmental Authority in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and (B) Parent shall not be required to, and the Company and its Subsidiaries shall not be required to (and shall not without the consent of Parent), take any actions which would reasonably be expected to have a Company Material Adverse Effect (each such condition and action described in clause (A) (as it relates to Parent) and clause (B) (as it relates to the Company and the Company Subsidiaries) that the applicable party hereto is not required to accept or take, a “Burdensome Condition”). Parent shall have the right to direct all matters with any Governmental Authority consistent with its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, it is agreed that Parent shall make all strategic decisions and lead all discussions, negotiations and other proceedings, and coordinate all activities with respect to any requests that may be made by, or any actions, consents, undertakings, approvals, or waivers that may be sought by or from, any Governmental Authority, in connection with obtaining Governmental Approvals for the Transactions under the HSR Act or any other Regulatory Laws, including determining the strategy for contesting, litigating or otherwise responding to objections to, or proceedings challenging, the consummation of the Merger and the other Transactions, in each case subject to good faith consultations with the Company reasonably in advance and in consideration of the Company’s views.
 
(d)         To the extent permitted by applicable Law, the Company shall give prompt written notice to Parent, and Parent shall give prompt written notice to the Company, of: (i) the occurrence, or failure to occur, of any event which occurrence or failure to occur has resulted in or would reasonably be expected to result in the failure to satisfy or be able to satisfy any of the conditions specified in Article VII, and such written notice shall specify the condition which has failed or will fail to be satisfied; (ii) any written notice from any Person alleging that the consent of such Person is or may be required in connection with the Transactions to the extent such consent is material to the Company and the Company Subsidiaries, taken as a whole; and (iii) any material written notice from any Governmental Authority in connection with the Transactions; provided that the delivery of any notice pursuant to this Section 6.5(d) shall not limit or otherwise affect the remedies available hereunder to Parent or the Company.

(a)          Subject to applicable Law and applicable contractual restrictions in effect on the date hereof, upon reasonable notice, the Company shall (and shall cause the Company Subsidiaries to) afford to the officers and other authorized Representatives of Parent, reasonable access, during normal business hours throughout the period prior to the Effective Time, to its and the Company Subsidiaries’ officers and its and the Company Subsidiaries’ properties, offices and other facilities and its and the Company Subsidiaries’ books, contracts, personnel files and records, and, during such period, the Company shall (and shall cause the Company Subsidiaries to) furnish promptly all information concerning its and the Company Subsidiaries’ business, properties and personnel as may reasonably be requested by Parent and its Representatives from time to time; provided that any such access shall be coordinated through one of the persons listed on Section 6.6 of the Company Disclosure Schedule and provided, further, that no investigation pursuant to this Section 6.6 shall affect or be deemed to modify any representation or warranty made by the Company herein; and provided, further, that the foregoing shall not require the Company to (i) (A) permit any inspection that, in the reasonable judgment of the Company, would be materially disruptive to the business or operations of the Company or any of the Company Subsidiaries, or (B)  disclose any information that would, in the reasonable judgment of the Company, result in the disclosure of any trade secrets of third parties or violate any of its obligations with respect to confidentiality, (ii)  disclose any information that would, in the reasonable judgment of the Company, be prohibited by applicable Law or be reasonably likely to result in the waiver of the protection of attorney‑client, work product or other legal privilege or (iii)  provide access to or otherwise make available any information relating to the process conducted by the Company that led to the execution of this Agreement. The Company and Parent shall cooperate in good faith to make appropriate substitute arrangements under circumstances in which the restrictions of the preceding sentence apply. The Confidentiality Agreement shall apply with respect to information furnished by the Company hereunder.
 
50

(b)        The Company shall give prompt notice to Parent, and Parent shall give prompt notice to the Company, of any (i) notice or other communication received by such party from any Governmental Authority in connection with the Transactions or from any Person alleging that the consent of such Person is or may be required in connection with the Transactions, if the subject matter of such communication or the failure of such party to obtain such consent would reasonably be expected to be material to the Company, the Surviving Corporation or Parent and (ii) action, suit, claim, investigation or proceeding commenced or, to such party’s knowledge, threatened against, relating to or otherwise affecting such party or any of its Subsidiaries which relate to the Transactions.

The Company and Parent agree that the initial press release to be issued with respect to the Transactions shall be in a form mutually agreed to by the Company and Parent. Nothing in this Section 6.7 shall limit the ability of any party hereto to make internal announcements to their respective employees that are consistent in all material respects with the prior public disclosures regarding the Transactions.

Section 6.10         Director and Officer Indemnification and Insurance.
 
(a)         For six (6) years after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall, and Parent shall cause the Surviving Corporation and any successor to, indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law, the present and former officers and directors of the Company or any Company Subsidiary, and any person who becomes an officer or director of the Company or any Company Subsidiary prior to the Effective Time (each, an “Indemnified Person”), against all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, judgments, inquiries, fines and any fees, costs and expenses (including the reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses and disbursements of counsel of the respective Indemnified Person’s choosing) incurred or arising in connection with any claim, action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, arising out of or related to such Indemnified Person’s service as an officer, director, employee, fiduciary or agent of the Company or any Company Subsidiary at or prior to the Effective Time, or services performed by such Indemnified Person, at the request of the Company or any Company Subsidiary, as a fiduciary under any Company Benefit Plan, in each case to the extent they arise out of (i) matters existing or occurring or alleged to have existed or occurred at or prior to the Effective Time, (ii) matters related to this Agreement and the Transactions and (iii) actions to enforce this provision or any other indemnification or advancement right of any Indemnified Person. In the event of any such claim, action, suit or proceeding, (A) each Indemnified Person will be entitled to advancement of expenses incurred in the defense of any such claim, action, suit or proceeding within 20 Business Days of receipt by the Surviving Corporation from such Indemnified Person of a request therefor, provided that if required under the DGCL, the Indemnified Person to whom expenses are advanced provides an undertaking to repay such advances if it is ultimately determined that such Indemnified Person is not entitled to indemnification, and (B) Parent and the Surviving Corporation shall use their respective reasonable best efforts to cooperate in the defense of any such matter.
 
(b)       For six years after the Effective Time, Parent shall cause to be maintained in effect provisions in the Surviving Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws (or in such documents of any successor to the business of the Surviving Corporation) regarding elimination of liability of directors, indemnification of officers, directors and employees and advancement of expenses that are no less advantageous to the intended beneficiaries than the corresponding provisions in existence on the date of this Agreement in the Company Charter and Company Bylaws.
 
(c)         Prior to the Effective Time, Parent and Merger Sub shall obtain, and fully pay the premium for, a non-cancelable extension of the Company’s directors’ and officers’ insurance policies and fiduciary liability insurance policies (collectively, the “D&O Insurance”) in place as of the date hereof, in each case for a claims reporting or discovery period of at least six years from and after the Effective Time and on terms and conditions and with retentions and limits of liability that are at least as favorable to the insureds as those contained in the Company’s D&O Insurance policies in effect as of the date hereof; provided that if the aggregate cost for such insurance coverage in respect of any one policy year exceeds 300% of the current annual premium paid by the Company, Parent and Merger Sub shall instead be obligated to obtain D&O Insurance with the best available coverage with respect to matters occurring at or prior to the Effective Time for an aggregate cost in respect of each policy year within such six-year period of 300% of the current annual premium paid by the Company.
 
(d)        Parent agrees that all rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses and exculpation from liabilities for acts or omissions occurring at or prior to the Effective Time (including any matters arising in connection with the Transactions) now existing in favor of any Indemnified Person as provided in any agreement in effect on the date hereof (and made available to Parent prior to the date hereof) between the Company or any Company Subsidiary, on the one hand, and any Indemnified Person, on the other hand, will be assumed by the Surviving Corporation without further action, as of the Effective Time, and will survive the Merger and continue in full force and effect in accordance with their terms.
 
(e)         If Parent, the Surviving Corporation or any of their respective successors or assigns (i) consolidates with or merges into any other Person and shall not be the continuing or surviving corporation or entity of such consolidation or merger or (ii) transfers or conveys all or substantially all of its properties and assets to any Person, then, and in each such case, to the extent necessary, proper provision shall be made so that the successors and assigns of Parent or the Surviving Corporation, as the case may be, shall assume the obligations set forth in this Section 6.10.
 
52

(f)          The rights of Indemnified Persons to indemnification and insurance pursuant to this Section 6.10 are expressly intended to be for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by, each Indemnified Person, his or her heirs and his or her legal representatives and are a contract right of each Indemnified Person as a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement, and those rights to indemnification and insurance shall exist in addition to and without limiting any and all rights to indemnification granted or arising under the Company Charter, the Company Bylaws or the Surviving Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation or bylaws, or by operation of law. The provisions of this Section 6.10 shall survive the consummation of the Merger.
 
(g)         Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that any claim for indemnification is asserted or made on or prior to the sixth anniversary of the Effective Time, all rights to indemnification in respect of such claim shall continue until the final disposition of such claim.
 
Section 6.11         Employee Matters.
 
(a)         Effective as of, and continuing for a period of not less than twelve (12) months following the Closing Date, Parent, the Surviving Corporation or one of their respective Affiliates, as applicable, shall provide or cause each Continuing Employee to be provided with (i) base salary or wages that are no less favorable than those provided to such Continuing Employee immediately prior to the Closing Date, (ii) short-term cash incentive compensation opportunities that are no less favorable than those provided to such Continuing Employee immediately prior to the Closing Date, (iii) if applicable, RSUs and PRSUs, or a cash-based incentive award equivalent thereto, with an aggregate grant date fair value no less favorable than the aggregate grant date fair value of the RSU and/or PRSUs provided to such Continuing Employee in 2021; and (iv) other employee benefits that are substantially comparable in the aggregate to those provided to such Continuing Employee immediately prior to the Closing Date (other than any defined benefit pension and post-employment or retirement medical and welfare benefits, retention, change in control, transaction, stay or similar arrangements, or long-term incentive or equity-based compensation opportunities or benefits (other than as expressly provided under this Section 6.11(a)).
 
(b)        With respect to any employee benefit plan, program, practice, policy or arrangement maintained or contributed to by Parent, the Surviving Corporation or any of their respective Affiliates in which any Continuing Employee is eligible to participate on or after the Closing Date (each, a “Parent Benefit Plan”), for the purposes of determining eligibility to participate and vesting (but not for (i) benefit accrual purposes (except for vacation, sick leave, paid time off and severance) or (ii) vesting under any equity compensation plan, as applicable), such Continuing Employee’s service with the Company or any of the Company Subsidiaries (or any predecessor entity thereof) prior to the Closing Date shall be treated as service with Parent, the Surviving Corporation and their respective Affiliates to the same extent and for the same purpose as such Continuing Employee was entitled, immediately before the Closing Date, to credit for such service under any analogous Company Benefit Plan; provided that the foregoing shall not apply to the extent that it would result in any duplication of benefits or compensation.
 
(c)         Parent, the Surviving Corporation and their respective Affiliates will use reasonable best efforts to cause each Parent Benefit Plan that is a welfare benefit plan, within the meaning of Section 3(1) of ERISA, (i) to waive any and all eligibility waiting periods, actively-at-work requirements, evidence of insurability requirements, pre-existing condition limitations and other exclusions and limitations regarding the Continuing Employees and their spouses, domestic partners and dependents to the extent waived, satisfied or not applicable under the analogous Company Benefit Plan, and (ii) to recognize for each Continuing Employee for purposes of applying annual deductible, co-payment and out-of-pocket maximums under such Parent Benefit Plan any deductible, co-payment and out-of-pocket expenses paid by such Continuing Employee and his or her spouse, domestic partner and dependents under the analogous Company Benefit Plan during the plan year of such Company Benefit Plan in which the Closing Date occurs.
 
53

(d)        If directed in writing by Parent at least 10 Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company and the Company Subsidiaries shall terminate (or cause to be terminated) any Company Benefit Plan (including the Equity Incentive Plans) that can be legally terminated by the Company or a Company Subsidiary with such termination effective, in the case of any Company Benefit Plan that is intended to qualify as a qualified cash or deferred arrangement under Section 401(k) of the Code (each, a “Company 401(k) Plan”), as of the day immediately prior to the Closing Date and, in the case of any other Company Benefit Plan as of the Closing Date (or as soon as administratively practicable thereafter). The Company shall provide Parent with evidence that the applicable Company Benefit Plans have been timely terminated pursuant to resolutions of the Company Board and, as applicable, any Company Subsidiary. The form and substance of such resolutions shall be subject to the prior review and approval of Parent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. If a Company 401(k) Plan is terminated pursuant to this Section 6.11(d), Parent shall use reasonable best efforts to cause one or more defined contribution plans maintained by Parent or its Affiliates that include a qualified cash or deferred arrangement within the meaning of Section 401(k) of the Code (as applicable, the “Parent 401(k) Plan”) to allow each Continuing Employee to make a “direct rollover” (as described in Section 401(a)(31) of the Code and including the in-kind rollover of notes evidencing outstanding participant loans) to the Parent 401(k) Plan of all or any portion of the vested account balances of such Continuing Employee under the Company 401(k) Plan in which each such Continuing Employee participated prior to the Closing if such direct rollover is elected in accordance with applicable Law by each such Continuing Employee.
 
(e)       Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, no provision of this Agreement shall be deemed to (i) guarantee employment for any period of time for, or preclude the ability of Parent, the Surviving Corporation or their respective Affiliates to relocate or terminate, any Continuing Employee for any reason; (ii) prevent the amendment, modification, or termination of any agreement with a Continuing Employee after the Effective Time; or (iii) constitute the establishment or adoption of or an amendment to any employee benefit or compensation plan, program, agreement, Contract, policy or arrangement or otherwise be treated as an adoption of, or amendment or modification of, any Company Benefit Plan, any benefit plan of Parent or any of its Affiliates or any other benefit plan arrangement. No provision of this Agreement shall confer upon any Person who is not a party to this Agreement (including any current or former Service Provider or any participant in any Company Benefit Plan or other employee benefit plan, agreement or other arrangement (or any dependent or beneficiary thereto)) any third party beneficiary or other right of any kind or nature whatsoever, except that the Company may enforce these provisions on behalf of any impacted Continuing Employee.
 
Section 6.12        Transaction Litigation. Promptly after the Company receives notice of the commencement of any litigation relating to the Merger and the other Transactions, the Company shall notify Parent of the commencement of such litigation and, subject to entry into a customary joint defense agreement, give Parent the opportunity to consult with the Company and participate in the defense or settlement of any stockholder litigation against the Company, any Company Subsidiary or their respective directors or officers  relating to the Merger and the other Transactions. None of the Company, any Company Subsidiary or any Representative of the Company shall compromise, settle, offer to compromise or settle or come to an arrangement regarding any such stockholder litigation, in each case unless Parent shall have consented in writing (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).  Parent shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries and their respective Representative, to use their respective reasonable best efforts to cooperate with the Company in connection with the defense of any such stockholder litigation.

54

 Section 6.13      Rule 16b-3 Approval. Prior to the Closing, the Company and the Company Board or a committee thereof, shall use its reasonable best efforts to take all actions to cause to be exempt under Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act any disposition of Company equity securities (including derivative securities) resulting from the Transactions by each individual who is subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act immediately prior to the Effective Time.
 
Section 6.14      Obligations of Merger Sub and the Surviving Corporation. Parent shall take all action necessary to cause Merger Sub and the Surviving Corporation to perform their respective obligations under this Agreement.
 
Section 6.15       No Control of Other Party’s Business. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall give Parent, directly or indirectly, the right to control or direct the operations of the Company or any Company Subsidiaries prior to the Effective Time, and nothing contained in this Agreement shall give the Company, directly or indirectly, the right to control or direct the operations of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries prior to the Effective Time. Prior to the Effective Time, each of the Company and Parent shall exercise, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, complete control and supervision over its and its Subsidiaries’ respective operations.

Section 6.16            Financing Cooperation.
 
(a)        The Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to, and shall cause each of the Company Subsidiaries and its and their respective Representatives to use its and their commercially reasonable efforts to, in each case at Parent’s sole cost and expense, provide reasonable cooperation and assistance as is customary and reasonably requested by Parent in connection with Parent obtaining any debt financing in connection with this Agreement and the Transaction (the “Anticipated Financing”), including furnishing Parent with such pertinent and customary information regarding the Company and the Company Subsidiaries (including information to be used in the preparation of one or more information packages or disclosure documents regarding the business and operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries) as is necessary or customary and as may be reasonably requested by Parent for the arrangement or marketing of any Anticipated Financing.
 
(b)         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, all such requested cooperation provided in accordance with this Section 6.16 shall not unreasonably interfere with the normal business or operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries and in no event shall the Company or any of its Subsidiaries be required to (i) bear any fees and expenses (including those payable to Representatives), pay any commitment or other fee, incur any other liability, make any other payment or agree to provide any indemnity in connection with the Anticipated Financing or any of the foregoing prior to the Effective Time, except to the extent reimbursed and/or indemnified by Parent pursuant to the last sentence of this Section 6.16(b) or (ii) enter into any definitive agreement that is not expressly contingent on, or that would be effective prior to, the occurrence of the Closing.

Section 9.10         Enforcement of Agreement.
 
(a)          The parties agree that irreparable damage for which monetary damages, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy, would occur in the event that any of the parties hereto do not perform the provisions of this Agreement (including failing to take such actions as are required of it hereunder to consummate the Merger and the Transactions) in accordance with its specified terms or otherwise breach such provisions. Accordingly, the parties acknowledge and hereby agree that, unless this Agreement has been terminated in accordance with Article VIII, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by the Company, on the one hand, or Parent or Merger Sub, on the other hand, of any of their respective covenants or obligations set forth in this Agreement, the Company, on the one hand, and Parent or Merger Sub, on the other hand, shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent or restrain breaches or threatened breaches of this Agreement by the other (as applicable), and to specifically enforce the terms and provisions of this Agreement to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of, or to enforce compliance with, the covenants and obligations of the other under this Agreement.
 
(b)         Each of the parties agrees that it will not raise any objection to the availability of the equitable remedy of specific performance or other equitable relief as provided herein, including objections on the basis that (i) either party has an adequate remedy at law or equity or (ii) an award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at law or equity. Any party seeking an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall not be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with any such Order or injunction. The remedies available to each party pursuant to this Section 9.10 shall be in addition to any other remedy to which it is entitled at law or in equity, and the election to pursue an injunction or specific performance shall not restrict, impair or otherwise limit either party hereto from, terminating this Agreement and collecting the Parent Termination Fee or Termination Fee, as applicable, pursuant to Section 8.6 in the event that specific performance is not granted. The parties hereto further agree that nothing set forth in this Section 9.10 shall require any party hereto to institute any proceeding for specific performance under this Section 9.10 prior to or as a condition to exercising any termination right under Article VIII (or receipt of any amounts due pursuant to Section 8.6), nor shall the commencement of any legal action or legal proceeding pursuant to this Section 9.10 or anything set forth in this Section 9.10 restrict or limit any party’s right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the terms of Article VIII.
 
Section 9.11         Consent to Jurisdiction and Venue.(a)           Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts of the State of Delaware, or the Federal court of the United States of America located in the District of Delaware, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to or to enforce this Agreement or the agreements delivered in connection herewith or any of the Transactions or any other transactions contemplated thereby or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment relating thereto, and each of the parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally (a) agrees not to commence any such action or proceeding except in such courts, (b) agrees that any claim in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such Delaware state court or, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, in such Federal court, (c) waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such action or proceeding in any such Delaware state or Federal court, and (d) waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such Delaware state or Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable Law.  Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.2.  Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by applicable Law.
 
68

Section 9.12       Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH OF PARENT, MERGER SUB AND THE COMPANY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO OR TO ENFORCE THIS AGREEMENT OR THE ACTIONS OF PARENT OR THE COMPANY IN THE NEGOTIATION, ADMINISTRATION, PERFORMANCE AND ENFORCEMENT THEREOF.

The Board of Directors of CAI International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), adopted this Amendment to the Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company (the “Bylaws”) on June 17, 2021 by adding a new Section 11.3 to “ARTICLE XI - MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS” of the Bylaws, which shall read in its entirety as follows:

SECTION 11.3 Exclusive Forum.
 
(a)          Subject to Section 11.3(b), unless the Corporation consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the sole and exclusive forum for any internal or intra-corporate claim or any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine as defined by the laws of the State of Delaware, including, but not limited to: (1) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Corporation; (2) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee or stockholder of the Corporation to the Corporation or the Corporation’s stockholders; or (3) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws (in each case, as they may be amended from time to time), or as to which the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware confers jurisdiction on the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, shall be a state court located within the State of Delaware (or, if no court located within the State of Delaware has jurisdiction, the federal district court for the District of Delaware).

Exhibit 99.1

CAI International, Inc. Enters into Definitive Agreement to be Acquired by Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc.

Purchase Price of $56.00 per Common Share in Cash

SAN FRANCISCO June 17, 2021CAI International, Inc. (NYSE: CAI) (“CAI” or the “Company”), one of the world’s leading transportation finance companies, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc. (“MHC”). Under the terms of the merger agreement with MHC (the “Merger Agreement”), MHC will acquire all of CAI’s outstanding and fully diluted common stock in an all-cash transaction for $56.00 per share, which represents a total equity value of approximately $1.1 billion, consisting of $104 million (par value) of preferred stock and $986 million of common stock equity value, assuming a fully-diluted share count of 17.6 million based on the treasury stock method, and an enterprise value of $2.9 billion, based on balance sheet information included in the Company’s most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as of March 31, 2021.

David Remington, Chairman of the CAI Board of Directors commented, “After a review of strategic alternatives by our Board of Directors, we are pleased to reach this agreement with MHC, which we believe is in the long-term best interests of our shareholders.  This merger is the culmination of discussions that started in Fall of 2019.  During those discussions we have been most impressed by the vision of MHC, a vision shared by Hiromitsu Ogawa, who founded CAI over 30 years ago.  Mr. Ogawa built a world class container leasing company by focusing on delivering value to customers and we are pleased that this vision will endure.  We believe our shipping line customers and manufacturing partners will most certainly benefit from the scale and financial strength of the merged company.”

The cash consideration of $56.00 per share of common stock represents a 46.8% premium over CAI's closing stock price today, June 17, 2021, and a 31.3% premium over the volume weighted average share price during the 60 trading days ended June 17, 2021. Holders of the Company’s Series A and Series B preferred stock will receive cash equal to $25.00 per share of preferred stock plus all accrued and unpaid dividends as of the date the merger is consummated.

CAI’s Board of Directors has unanimously approved the transaction.  The transaction, which is currently expected to close in the late third quarter or early fourth quarter of 2021, is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by CAI’s stockholders, and receipt of certain regulatory and lender approvals, as well as the migration of the jurisdiction of certain of the Company’s subsidiaries to the United States. The transaction is not contingent on receipt of financing by MHC.

CAI will continue to pay quarterly non-pro-rated dividends at $0.30 per share per quarter until the closing of the transaction. Following the closing, shares of capital stock of CAI will no longer be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Board of Directors has also unanimously voted to promote Timothy Page from Interim President and Chief Executive Officer to President and Chief Executive Officer.


 Timothy Page, President and Chief Executive Officer of CAI remarked, “Over the past year, we have delivered on the commitment we made to our shareholders to return CAI’s focus to its core container leasing business.  Executing on that strategy put CAI in position to partner with MHC, a strong, quality, global financial organization.  Going forward, the combination of CAI and MHC will allow MHC to leverage CAI’s global marketing and operational expertise, and along with MHC’s existing container investments will provide enhanced value to MHC’s container leasing customers, suppliers, employees, and other stakeholders. After the closing of the transaction, MHC expects to retain CAI’s existing management team and employees.  CAI’s headquarters will remain in San Francisco.”

Given the pending transaction, CAI will not host a second quarter earnings call and will not release its second quarter financial results for the period ended June 30, 2021, until CAI files its second quarter Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Centerview Partners LLC is acting as the exclusive financial advisor to CAI, and Perkins Coie LLP is acting as CAI’s legal advisor.

PLEASE READ: Important Announcement
 
Dear CAI team,
 
I am pleased to announce that, effective today, CAI International, Inc. (“CAI”) has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc. (“MHC”).  MHC is a Japanese public company, with total assets of JPY 9.7 trillion ($89 billion), making it the second largest leasing company in Japan. MHC operates globally in multiple sectors, including aircraft leasing, rail car leasing, ship financing and container leasing. Here in the United States, MHC owns Beacon Intermodal Leasing (“Beacon”), a container leasing business of a similar size to CAI, based in Boston, MA.
 
MHC will acquire CAI’s outstanding common stock in an all-cash transaction for $56.00 per share, as well as all of CAI’s outstanding preferred stock at its par value of $25.00 per share.  After the closing of the transaction (which will take several months to complete), CAI will no longer be a public company and its shares will no longer be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
 
The acquisition represents a very exciting opportunity for not only CAI and our customers, but for each of you. The addition of CAI into the MHC group will significantly strengthen our position in the container leasing market. The combination of CAI and Beacon will create the fourth largest container lessor in the world, after Triton, Textainer and Florens.  This is a game changer for us in the container leasing space as we combine the resources of two leading lessors.
 
We began conversations with MHC almost two years ago, and during that time we have been very impressed with MHC’s vision for the future.  I want to emphasize to you that one of the primary factors that drove MHC’s interest in CAI was the quality of you, the people who have made CAI what it is.  There is a reason CAI has consistently had the highest utilization amongst container lessors, there is a reason why CAI has been able to consistently compete and gain market share against much bigger leasing companies, there is a reason we have great relationships with our customers.  That reason always comes back to each and every one of you.  That is what MHC wants from this acquisition; they want your talent and expertise.
 
In the next several months, we will work hard towards closing the transaction and completing the various regulatory requirements. Until we complete the acquisition and CAI becomes a part of MHC, CAI and Beacon will remain operating as completely separate companies. We cannot start collaborating or sharing information with Beacon for any business matters until the acquisition closes, which is currently expected to be in the late third quarter or early fourth quarter of 2021. The general principle until then is “business as usual”. The continuity of our exceptional service to our customers is of course the utmost priority and I know that you will all continue to provide your best service to our colleagues, vendors, and customers.
 
After the acquisition closes, MHC plans to launch a joint team from CAI and Beacon to begin planning the integration of the two companies. We expect this process to take most of 2022 and probably longer in some areas.  During this time, MHC expects to retain CAI’s existing management team and employees, and CAI’s headquarters will remain in San Francisco.  We do not anticipate any organizational changes in the near term.  MHC’s goal for the integration is to work to build a combined business that is far stronger than just Beacon plus CAI, and one which will lead to significant opportunities for employees in the future.


We will be sending the attached letter to our customers, manufacturers, depots and other partners of CAI, explaining to them what to expect going forward. I recommend you read the attached letter and become familiar with it. If you receive specific questions from our customers or manufacturers, and you have any questions as to how to respond, please ask Steven Garcia, Chief Legal Officer, for necessary advice so that we can appropriately handle legal requirements until the deal has closed.
 
For those of you who own CAI shares or have been granted restricted stock units (“RSUs”), you will receive $56.00 for each of those shares regardless of whether they are vested or unvested.  For anyone holding unexercised options, please contact David Morris who can help you determine the value you will receive for those options. Cash received for unvested RSUs and outstanding options will be subject to applicable tax withholding.
 
Finally, I want to thank you all for your support and efforts. We are excited for this opportunity to be a market leader in the container leasing business. We look forward to your support in achieving our goals.
 
Sincerely,
 
Timothy Page
President and Chief Executive Officer

Exhibit 99.3

June 17, 2021
 
Dear valued customer, container manufacturer, depot service provider and other vendors of CAI,
 
As you are probably aware, CAI International, Inc. (“CAI”) has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc. (“MHC”).  MHC is a Japanese public company, with total assets of JPY 9.7 trillion ($89 billion), making it the second largest leasing company in Japan. MHC operates globally in multiple sectors, including aircraft leasing, rail car leasing, ship financing and container leasing. Here in the United States, MHC owns Beacon Intermodal Leasing (“Beacon”), a container leasing business of a similar size to CAI, based in Boston, MA.
 
The acquisition of CAI by MHC, which is subject to receipt of antitrust clearance and other customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the late third quarter or early fourth quarter of 2021.
 
This transaction will bring together two world class container leasing service providers, CAI and Beacon.  We believe the scale and financial resources made possible by this transaction will only enhance our ability to provide consistent solutions to our customers throughout market cycles.
 
CAI has grown as a leading provider of containers since 1989 with a broad network of well-experienced professional employees, agents, and depots. Beacon was originally established in 2008 with robust capital resources by having its roots in a financial institution and has expanded through disciplined investment since its acquisition by MHC in 2014. Both companies’ business platforms complement each other from the perspective of supply and operational capabilities.
 
After the acquisition, MHC anticipates that both CAI and Beacon will remain as separate standalone organizations for at least a year, which means no changes for that time period. During that time, MHC plans to launch a joint team from CAI and Beacon to begin planning the integration of the two companies, with a focus on creating a world class, customer focused, container leasing company.
 
I want to thank you for being a CAI partner. Our total commitment to your success is our number one priority and we look forward to maintaining that commitment as we move into a new phase of our relationship with you.
 
We are ready to help you shape your future.
 
Sincerely,
 
Timothy Page
President and Chief Executive Officer
