SNAP Capital Structure

We have three classes of common stock: Class A, Class B, and Class C. Holders of our Class A common stock—the only class of stock being sold in this offering—are entitled to no vote on matters submitted to our stockholders. Holders of our Class B common stock are entitled to one vote per share. And holders of Class C common stock are entitled to ten votes per share. Holders of shares of Class B common stock and Class C common stock will vote together as a single class on all matters (including the election of directors) submitted to a vote of stockholders.

As a result of the Class C common stock that they hold, Evan Spiegel, our co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, and Robert Murphy, our co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, will be able to exercise voting rights with respect to an aggregate of shares of Class C common stock, which will represent approximately % of the voting power of our outstanding capital stock immediately following this offering. As a result, Mr. Spiegel and Mr. Murphy, and potentially either one of them alone, have the ability to control the outcome of all matters submitted to our stockholders for approval, including the election, removal, and replacement of directors and any merger, consolidation, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets. If Mr. Spiegel’s or Mr. Murphy’s employment with us is terminated, they will continue to have the ability to exercise the same significant voting power and potentially control the outcome of all matters submitted to our stockholders for approval. Either of our co-founders’ shares of Class C common stock will automatically convert into Class B common stock, on a one-to-one basis, nine months following his death or on the date on which the number of outstanding shares of Class C common stock held by such holder represents less than 30% of the Class C common stock, or shares of Class C common stock, held by such holder on the closing of this offering. Should either of our co-founders’ Class C common stock be converted to Class B common stock, the remaining co-founder will be able to exercise voting control over our outstanding capital stock.

This concentrated control could delay, defer, or prevent a change of control, merger, consolidation, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets that our other stockholders support. Conversely, this concentrated control could allow our co-founders to consummate a transaction that our other stockholders do not support. In addition, our co-founders may make long-term strategic investment decisions and take risks that may not be successful and may seriously harm our business.

Although other U.S.-based companies have publicly traded classes of non-voting stock, to our knowledge, no other company has completed an initial public offering of non-voting stock on a U.S. stock exchange. We cannot predict whether this structure and the concentrated control it affords Mr. Spiegel and Mr. Murphy will result in a lower trading price or greater fluctuations in the trading price of our Class A common stock as compared to the trading price if the Class A common stock had voting rights. Nor can we predict whether this structure will result in adverse publicity or other adverse consequences. For a discussion regarding the rights, preferences, and privileges of our common stock, see “Description of Capital Stock.”

Interesting to see how this stock will fare in the future. Currently the company is not profitable and stockholders have no effective control. In addition it has to compete with 'Facebook' (WhatsApp and Instagram). The latter is profitable and has a larger user base. Kudos to the equity holders that IPO'd their company.

Those of you who trade these IPO's certainly have guts! Im not brave enough to touch anything that hasn't been listed for at least a year.

Kind of reminds me of Facebook. After the IPO I thought $20 was a good buy. Of course I didn't take it and it turned out to be one of the best places.

I think $10 is a good spot to buy and hold. But who knows with these companies.

let's hope it has legs like FB! I'll just keep watching for some capitulation from the shorts....as long as its not around $0.01 there maybe hope!

I feel old. No idea how people keep up with (or have the time for) all these social media doohickeys.
