Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On February 7, 2022, Alteryx, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Alteryx”), completed its previously announced acquisition of Trifacta Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Trifacta”), pursuant to the terms of an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Alteryx Thunder Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Alteryx (“Merger Sub”), Trifacta, and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, as representative of the Trifacta securityholders.

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into Trifacta (the “Merger”), and upon consummation of the Merger, Merger Sub ceased to exist and Trifacta became a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Alteryx. Upon consummation (the “Closing”) of the Merger, all outstanding shares of Trifacta capital stock, options and warrants to purchase Trifacta capital stock were cancelled in exchange for $400.0 million in cash to existing Trifacta securityholders, subject to customary adjustments for working capital, transaction expenses, cash and indebtedness. In addition, Alteryx has established a retention pool in an aggregate amount of approximately $75.0 million in the form of restricted stock units covering shares of Alteryx Class A common stock that will be granted to certain Trifacta employees under Alteryx’s 2017 Equity Incentive Plan in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants by Alteryx and Trifacta. A portion of the aggregate consideration is held in escrow to secure the indemnification obligations of the Trifacta securityholders.

The foregoing description in this Item 2.01 of certain terms of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Merger Agreement, which will be filed as an exhibit to Alteryx’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2022.

On February 7, 2022, Alteryx issued a press release announcing the Closing of the Merger. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
