Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On August 20, 2021, ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries completed a series of reorganization transactions (the “Reorganization”) to simplify its corporate structure, including the distribution of shares of common stock of RKSI Acquisition Corp ("RKSI") from ZoomInfo Holdings LLC to ZoomInfo Intermediate Holdings LLC ("HoldCo"), the merger of RKSI with and into HoldCo with HoldCo surviving, and the merger (the “HoldCo Merger”) of HoldCo with and into the Company with the Company surviving. Prior to the consummation of the HoldCo Merger, all holders of limited liability company interests (“HoldCo Units”) in HoldCo (other than the Company) exchanged their HoldCo Units and paired shares of Class B common stock of the Company for shares of Class A common stock of the Company pursuant to the terms of the limited liability company agreement of HoldCo. The Reorganization, primarily the elimination of a corporate subsidiary between ZoomInfo Holdings LLC and ZoomInfo Technologies LLC, is aimed at reducing operational complexity, partially mitigating liquidity risks inherent in the Company's holding company structure, and enabling the Company's stakeholders and investors to better understand and model the Company's cash flows related to taxes.
Prior to the completion of the Reorganization, the Exchange Tax Receivable Agreement, dated as of June 3, 2020, by and among the Company and each of the other persons from time to time party thereto, and the Reorganization Tax Receivable Agreement, dated as of June 3, 2020, by and among the Company and each of the other persons from time to time party thereto (collectively, the “Tax Receivable Agreements”), were amended to clarify that the Reorganization would have no impact on the existing rights under the Tax Receivable Agreements.
A chart showing the Company’s organizational structure after giving effect to the Reorganization is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. This chart is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not purport to represent all legal entities within the Company’s organizational structure.
The information contained in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including the structure chart furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
