Notes payable to the Sellers

As consideration for the Business Combination, on November 25, 2019 the Company issued unsecured convertible promissory notes to each of Esse Effe and Maya in the amount of $6.0 million and $1.5 million, respectively, (the “Business Combination Convertible Notes”) and also issued other unsecured promissory notes to each of Esse Effe and Maya in the identical respective amounts (the “Non-convertible Notes”). The Non-convertible Notes held by Esse Effe and Maya were paid in full during fiscal year 2020 and no amount remains outstanding for such notes as of March 31, 2021.

Business Combination Convertible Notes

As of March 31, 2021, the amount outstanding for the Business Combination Convertible Notes was $3.75 million and accrued interest on the Business Combination Convertible Notes was $65,000.

The Business Combination Convertible Notes are classified as “Notes payable due to related parties” in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. The accrued interest payable is included in “Other current liabilities” in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Interest on the Business Combination Convertible Notes will accrue at a fixed interest rate equal to the one-year US dollar LIBOR interest rate published in The Wall Street Journal on the Business Combination Date, plus a margin of one percent (1%) per annum. Interest will be due and payable annually on each of (1) the date which is the twelve-month anniversary of the Business Combination Date and (2) on the date which is the twenty-four-month anniversary of the Business Combination Date. All interest shall be computed on the basis of a 365-day year and the actual number of days elapsed.

Fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding principal balance of these notes was due and payable on the fifteen-month anniversary of the Business Combination Date. The remaining outstanding principal balance of these notes plus all accrued and unpaid interest and fees due under these notes will be due and payable in full on the twenty-four-month anniversary of the Business Combination Date.

In the event that the Company receives, at any time while principal on these notes remains outstanding, cash proceeds of an equity financing (the “Financing”) in an amount not less than $50.0 million (the “Notes Financing Proceeds”), fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding principal balance of these notes will be due and payable no later than ten business days after the Company receives such Notes Financing Proceeds. In the event of a Financing where at any time the Company receives cash proceeds of such Financing in an amount not less than $75.0 million (the “Payoff Financing Proceeds”), one hundred percent of the remaining outstanding principal balance of these notes, plus all accrued and unpaid interest and fees due under the notes will be due and payable no later than ten business days after the Company receives such Payoff Financing Proceeds. The date which is the earlier of (a) the twenty-four-month anniversary of the Business Combination Date, or (b) the date payment is received from Payoff Financing Proceeds, is the “Maturity Date”.

In the event that these Business Combination Convertible Notes are not paid in full on or before the applicable Maturity Date, then at any time after the sixtieth business day after the Maturity Date, assuming payment in full has not been made prior to such date, the outstanding principal amount of these notes, together with all accrued but unpaid interest on these notes, may be converted into shares of Company common stock, in part or in whole, at the option of the holder of these notes by providing written notice at least three business days prior to the date of conversion. A conversion of any portion of these notes into shares of Company common stock will be effected at a conversion price equal to the Current Market Price as of the date of such conversion (the “Conversion Price”). The term “Current Market Price” means, generally, the average VWAP for the twenty consecutive trading days ending on the date that is five trading days prior to the date of conversion. The term “VWAP” means, for any trading day, the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s common stock for such trading day on the NYSE (or if the Company’s common stock is no longer traded on the NYSE, on such other exchange as the Company’s common stock is then traded).

On the fifteen-month anniversary of the Business Combination Date or February 25, 2021, the fifty percent (50%) of the previously outstanding amount of Business Combination Convertible Notes held by Esse Effe and Maya was repaid, with a total of $3.0 million and $750,000 in principal and $176,000 and $44,000 in accrued interest being paid to Esse Effe and Maya, respectively, pursuant to the terms of the Business Combination Convertible Notes.

Notes payable - Other

On April 16, 2020, the Company entered into a Settlement Agreement and Release (the “Settlement Agreement”) with its Business Combination financial advisory service firms, Cowen and Company, LLC (“Cowen”) and Chardan Capital Markets, LLC, (“Chardan” and collectively the “Service Firms”), pursuant to which it agreed to pay an affiliate of Cowen, Cowen Investments II LLC (“Cowen Investments”), and Chardan, in full satisfaction of all amounts owed to the Service Firms as of December 31, 2019, $5.4 million in the aggregate, as follows: (i) $2.7 million in the aggregate in common stock of the Company (the “Settlement Shares”) to be issued the business day prior to the filing of a resale registration statement for such Settlement Shares (the “Bank Resale Registration Statement”), (ii) convertible notes totaling $2.7 million in the aggregate with a maturity date three years after issuance and bearing interest at five percent (5%) per annum (but with lower interest rates if the notes are repaid earlier than one year or two years after issuance) and with interest paid in arrears to the payee on March 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of each year, with such convertible notes to also be issued the business day prior to the filing of the Resale Registration Statement and (iii) in the event that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined below) would otherwise be exceeded upon delivery of the Settlement Shares above, a warrant agreement also to be entered into with and issued to the Services Firms the business day prior to the filing of the Resale Registration Statement, whereby the amount of common stock of the Company by which the Beneficial Ownership Limitation would otherwise have been exceeded upon delivery of the Settlement Shares will be substituted for by warrants with an exercise price of $0.01 per share issued pursuant to a Warrant Agreement (the “Warrant Agreement”) and the common stock underlying the Warrant Agreement (the “Warrant Shares”). The Beneficial Ownership Limitation shall initially be 4.99% of the number of shares of the common stock outstanding of the Company immediately after giving effect to the issuance of these shares of common stock. The number of Settlement Shares was calculated using as the price per Settlement Share an amount equal to a fifteen percent (15%) discount to the ten-day (10-day) trailing dollar volume-weighted average price for the common stock of the Company on the NYSE American LLC stock exchange (the “VWAP”) on the business day immediately prior to the date on which Kaleyra filed the Resale Registration Statement. In addition, the price per share for determining the number of shares of common stock of the Company to be issued upon the conversion of the convertible notes shall be a five percent (5%) premium to the ten-day (10-day)

trailing VWAP as of the date immediately prior to the issuance date of the convertible notes, rounded down to the nearest whole number.

On May 1, 2020, in connection with the Settlement Agreement, the Company issued: (i) an aggregate of 440,595 Settlement Shares to Cowen Investments and Chardan, consisting of 374,506 Settlement Shares issued to Cowen Investments, and 66,089 Settlement Shares issued to Chardan, which resulted in a $0.2 million loss on settlement on the issuance date of May 1, 2020; and (ii) convertible promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $2.7 million to Cowen Investments and Chardan, consisting of a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $2.3 million issued to Cowen Investments (the “Cowen Note”) and a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $405,000 issued to Chardan (the “Chardan Note”). The unpaid principal of the Cowen Note is convertible at the option of Cowen Investments into 303,171 shares of common stock of the Company, if there has been no principal reduction, and the unpaid principal of the Chardan Note is convertible at the option of Chardan into 53,501 shares of common stock of the Company, if there has been no principal reduction. As the Beneficial Ownership Limitation was not triggered by the issuance of the Settlement Shares, no Warrant Agreement was necessary and no warrants were issued.

As of December 31, 2020, the outstanding amount of the Cowen Note was $2.3 million and accrued interest was $63,000. As of December 31, 2020, the outstanding amount of the Chardan Note was $405,000 and accrued interest was $14,000. These notes payable are included in “Long-term portion of notes payable” and the accrued interest payable is included in “Other current liabilities” in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

On February 4, 2021, Cowen Investments elected to convert the outstanding amount of the Cowen Note into 303,171 shares of common stock pursuant to the terms of the Cowen Note, and, as a result, the Company has no further obligations with respect to the Cowen Note.

As of March 31, 2021, the outstanding amount of the Chardan Note was $405,000 and accrued interest was $19,000.
