Item 8.01 Other Events.

Press Release

Attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K is a press release issued by GigCapital, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“GigCapital” or the “Company”) on September 3, 2019 regarding its intention to commence a cash tender offer for its outstanding rights (the “Press Release”).

Pre-Commencement Communications

The Press Release attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell any of the Company’s rights. The anticipated tender offer described in the Press Release has not yet commenced, and while the Company intends to commence the tender offer as soon as reasonably practicable upon the filing of the definitive proxy statement, and complete the tender offer, there can be no assurance that the Company will commence or complete the tender offer on the terms described in the Press Release, or at all. If the Company commences the tender offer, the solicitation and offer to buy the rights will be made only pursuant to an offer to purchase, letter of transmittal and related materials that the Company intends to distribute to its rightsholders and file with the SEC. The full details of the tender offer, including complete instructions on how to tender rights, will be included in the offer to purchase, letter of transmittal and related materials, which will become available to rightsholders upon commencement of the tender offer.

Forward-Looking Statements

The press release attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 regarding the Business Combination, the proposed tender offer, the Company and Kaleyra. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in the press release that address activities, events or developments that the Company and/or Kaleyra expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements and are identified with, but not limited to, words such as “believe” and “expect”. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the closing of the combination, potential capital alternatives or changes to the capital structure of the Company and the expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions, plans, prospects or strategies regarding the business combination and future business plans of the Company and Kaleyra management teams. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the management of the Company and/or Kaleyra in light of their respective experience and their perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments and their potential effects on the Company and Kaleyra as well as other factors they believe are appropriate in the circumstances. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Company or Kaleyra will be those anticipated and actual results may differ materially from those expressed in the press release due to many factors such as, but not limited to, the ability to satisfy closing conditions for the Business Combination, including that the Company stockholders will approve the Business Combination, the ability of the combined company to meet the NYSE’s listing standards, and that the Company will have sufficient capital upon the approval of the Business Combination to operate as anticipated. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the assumptions being made prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. These statements speak only as of the date they are made and none of the Company and/or Kaleyra undertakes any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in the press release to reflect events or circumstances which arise after the date of the press release.

No Offer or Solicitation

This Current Report on Form 8-K and the press release shall neither constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.


Additional Information About the Business Combination and Where to Find It

Additional information about the Business Combination with Kaleyra and related transactions is described in GigCapital’s preliminary proxy statement relating to the Business Combination and the respective businesses of GigCapital and Kaleyra, which GigCapital has filed with the SEC. The Business Combination and related transactions will be submitted to stockholders of GigCapital for their consideration. GigCapital’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the preliminary proxy statement and any amendments thereto and, once available, the definitive proxy statement and any additional definitive materials filed in connection with GigCapital’s solicitation of proxies for its special meeting of stockholders to be held to approve, among other things, the Business Combination and related transactions, because these documents will contain important information about GigCapital, Kaleyra and the Business Combination and related transactions. The definitive proxy statement will be mailed to stockholders of GigCapital as of a record date to be established for voting on the Business Combination and related transactions.
