SAN FRANCISCO, California – November 19, 2021 – SoFi Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFI), (“SoFi” or “the Company”), a leading digital personal finance company, today announced the “Redemption Fair Market Value” in connection with its previously announced redemption of its outstanding Warrants (as defined below). The Redemption Fair Market Value will be used to determine the number of shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), that will be issued on a “cashless” exercise of a Warrant subject to the terms of the Warrant Agreement (as defined below).
On November 4, 2021, the Company announced that it will redeem all of its outstanding warrants (the “Public Warrants”) to purchase shares of Common Stock that were issued under the Warrant Agreement, dated October 8, 2020, by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“CST”), as warrant agent (the “Warrant Agreement”), as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering (the “IPO”) and that remain outstanding at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on December 6, 2021 for a redemption price of $0.10 per Public Warrant. In addition, the Company announced that it will redeem all of its outstanding warrants to purchase Common Stock that were issued under the Warrant Agreement in a private placement simultaneously with the IPO (together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants. In connection with the redemption, CST previously delivered a redemption notice (the “Redemption Notice”) on the Company’s behalf, and the Company committed to inform holders of Warrants of the calculation of the Redemption Fair Market Value (as defined in the Warrant Agreement).
As warrant agent, CST has delivered a notice to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants on behalf of the Company informing holders:
- that the Redemption Fair Market Value is $22.38; and
- as a result, holders who exercise their Warrants on a “cashless basis” will be entitled to receive 0.361 shares of Common Stock per Warrant.
Any Warrants that remain unexercised following 5:00 p.m. New York City time on December 6, 2021 will be void and no longer exercisable, and the holders of those Warrants will be entitled to receive only the redemption price of $0.10 per Warrant.

None of the Company, its board of directors or employees has made or is making any representation or recommendation to any holder of the Warrants as to whether to exercise or refrain from exercising any Warrants.
The shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrants have been registered by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and are covered by a registration statement filed on Form S-1 with, and declared effective by, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration No. 333-257092). The SEC maintains an Internet website that contains a copy of this prospectus. The address of that site is www.sec.gov.
