(“SendGrid”) with the SEC as a definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A on December 18, 2018, and (4) mailed by Twilio and SendGrid to their respective stockholders commencing on December 18, 2018. The information contained in this Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into the joint proxy statement/prospectus.

The supplemental information contained in this Form 8-K should be read in conjunction with the joint proxy statement/prospectus, which we urge you to read in its entirety. Nothing in this Form 8-K shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein. To the extent that information in this Form 8-K differs from, or updates information contained in, the joint proxy statement/prospectus, the information in this Form 8-K shall supersede or supplement the information in the joint proxy statement/prospectus.

If you have not already submitted a proxy for use at the Twilio special meeting or the SendGrid special meeting, as applicable, you are urged to do so promptly. This Form 8-K does not affect the validity of any proxy card or voting instructions that Twilio stockholders or SendGrid stockholders may have previously received or delivered.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

Statements contained in this Form 8-K that relate to future results and events may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking information, and are based on the current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of SendGrid and Twilio. There can be no assurances that the proposed merger will be consummated. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements: economic, business, competitive, and/or regulatory factors affecting the businesses of SendGrid and Twilio generally, including those set forth in the filings of SendGrid and Twilio with the SEC, especially in the “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections of their respective Annual Reports on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, their Current Reports on Form 8-K and other SEC filings.
