(“Kensington”) and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent. The Public Warrants were originally issued in connection with Kensington’s initial public offering in June 2020 (the “IPO”), and subsequently assumed by QuantumScape in November 2020 in connection with the business combination by and among Kensington, Kensington Merger Sub Corp., and QuantumScape Battery, Inc.
