Explanatory Note

 

This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 1”) is being filed to amend the statement on Schedule 13D filed by Douglas Campbell (the “Reporting Person”) on December 15, 2021 (the “Original Statement”), and relates to shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Solid Power, Inc. (f/k/a Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation III), a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”).

 

The Original Statement is hereby amended and supplemented as detailed below, and, except as amended and supplemented hereby, the Original Statement remains in full force and effect. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to such terms in the Original Statement.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

Item 3 of the Original Statement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, dated June 15, 2021 (as amended, the “Business Combination Agreement”), by and among the Issuer, DCRC Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of the Issuer (“Merger Sub”), and Solid Power Operating, Inc., a Colorado corporation (f/k/a Solid Power, Inc., “Legacy Solid Power”), a business combination between the Issuer and Legacy Solid Power was effected through the merger of Merger Sub with and into Legacy Solid Power, with Legacy Solid Power surviving as the surviving company and as a wholly owned subsidiary of Issuer (the “Merger” and, collectively with the other transactions described in the Business Combination Agreement, the “business combination”). The business combination closed on December 8, 2021 (the “Closing”).

 

In connection with the Closing, and subject to the terms and conditions of the Business Combination Agreement, each outstanding share of Legacy Solid Power’s common stock was canceled and converted into the right to receive the number of shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock equal to such number of shares multiplied by approximately 3.182 (the “Exchange Ratio”), and each outstanding Legacy Solid Power option was converted into an Issuer option based on the Exchange Ratio applicable to shares of Legacy Solid Power common stock. Following the Closing, each exchanged Legacy Solid Power option continued to be governed by the same terms and conditions (including vesting and exercisability terms) as were applicable to the corresponding Legacy Solid Power option immediately prior to the Closing.

 

In connection with the Closing, the Reporting Person tendered (i) 2,100,000 shares of Legacy Solid Power common stock in exchange for 6,682,160 shares of Common Stock and (ii) fully vested options to purchase 1,600,000 shares of Legacy Solid Power common stock in exchange for options to purchase 5,091,169 shares of Common Stock (the “Exchanged Option”). The Reporting Person also tendered unvested options to purchase shares of Legacy Solid Power common stock, which resulted in the Reporting Person owning options to an additional 477,296 shares of Common Stock, which options are subject to certain ongoing vesting conditions.

 

On January 12, 2022, the Reporting Person exercised the Exchanged Option and acquired 5,091,169 shares of Common Stock (the “Reported Exercise”).

 

The information set forth in or incorporated by reference into Items 4, 5 and 6 of this Schedule 13D is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 3.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 of the Original Statement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

The Reporting Person serves as Chief Executive Officer of the Issuer and as a member of the Issuer’s board of directors and, in such capacities, may have influence over the corporate activities of the Issuer, including activities which may relate to items described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. Subject to the Stockholder Support Agreement and the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”), each described in Item 6 of this Schedule 13D, and the Issuer’s Insider Trading Policy and applicable federal securities laws, the Reporting Person may from time to time buy or sell securities of the Issuer as appropriate for his personal circumstances in open market transactions, through the exercise of vested options or through additional compensatory grants including, but not limited to, grants of options and/or restricted stock units pursuant to the Issuer’s 2021 Equity Incentive Plan.

 

 

 

 

Except as described herein, the Reporting Person does not have any present plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. However, the Reporting Person reserves the right to formulate in the future plans or proposals which may relate to or result in the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

Item 5 of the Original Statement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

(a) As of the date of this Amendment No. 1, the Reporting Person beneficially owns an aggregate of 11,773,329 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 6.8% of the Issuer’s Common Stock. The beneficial ownership percentages used in this Schedule 13D are calculated based on a total of 172,649,157 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of January 12, 2022, which equals the number of shares of Common Stock as set forth in the Issuer’s Form 8-K filed on December 13, 2021, plus the number of shares received by the Reporting Person upon the Reported Exercise.

 

(b) The Reporting Person has sole voting and dispositive power with respect to 11,773,329 shares of Common Stock.

 

(c) Except as described in Items 3 and 4 of this Schedule 13D, which descriptions are incorporated herein by reference, the Reporting Person has not effected any transactions in the Common Stock during the past 60 days.

 

(d) Except as disclosed in Item 2, no person is known to the Reporting Person to have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, any securities covered by this Schedule 13D.

 

(e) Not Applicable.
