Note 11 – Member’s/Stockholder's Equity (Deficit)

Member’s contributions – As described in Note 3 and presented in the consolidated statements of changes to stockholders'/member’s equity (deficit), during the year ended December 31, 2021, the Parent contributed assets related to the Rumble acquisition. The fair value of assets contributed was $20,483.

As described in Note 9, in February 2020, the Member contributed $49,443 to the Company, of which $32,157 was in satisfaction of the receivable from the Member and the remainder was a member’s contribution. Of this $49,443, $30,000 was used to paydown the principal on outstanding term loans under the Prior Facility (see Note 8) with the remainder available for unrestricted use by the Company. Also, in February 2020, the Company returned $19,443 of the contribution to the Member, which was recorded as a distribution. Also, in 2020, $53,760 of the proceeds from the borrowings under the 2020 Facility were paid to the Parent and recorded as a distribution.

Common stock – As described in Note 1, in connection with the IPO in July 2021, the Company issued 10,000,000 shares of Class A common stock, at a price of $12.00 per share. Immediately after the IPO, 22,994,042 shares of Class A common stock were outstanding, including 12,994,044 shares issued to historical owners of the Parent. Also on July 23, 2021, in connection with the completion of the Reorganization Transactions, 23,542,663 shares of Class B common stock were issued to the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members. In August 2021, the Company sold 904,000 shares of Class A common stock to the underwriters pursuant to the underwriter’s option to purchase additional shares. After underwriter discounts and commissions, the Company received net proceeds of approximately $10,116 on August 24, 2021, which were used (i) $9,000 to purchase 750,000 LLC Units from the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and (ii) $1,116 for working capital.

Redeemable noncontrolling interests – Following the IPO, XPO Inc. is the sole managing member of XPO LLC and, as a result, consolidates the financial results of XPO LLC. The Company reported redeemable noncontrolling interests representing the economic interests in XPO LLC held by the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members. Under the Amended LLC agreement, the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members were able to exchange their LLC Units for shares of Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis (simultaneously cancelling an equal number of shares of Class B common stock of the exchanging member), or at the option of the Company for cash.

Prior to the second amendment of the LLC agreement. the Company's decision of whether to exchange LLC Units for Class A common stock or cash was made at the discretion of the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members through their control of the Company's Board of Directors. Accordingly, the redeemable noncontrolling interest was reported as temporary equity at the greater of the redemption value of the units or the carrying value as of the balance sheet date, with a corresponding adjustment to additional paid-in capital.

Noncontrolling interests – In December 2021, the Company and the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members amended the LLC agreement where the redemption option in cash was removed, except to the extent the cash proceeds to be used to make the redemption in cash are immediately available and were directly raised from a secondary offering of the Company's equity securities. The redeemable noncontrolling interest was adjusted to its fair value as of such date and recorded in equity as noncontrolling interest. Future redemptions or exchanges of LLC Units by the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members will result in a change in ownership and reduce the amount recorded as noncontrolling interest and increase additional paid-in capital.
