Dear Nikola Stockholders,

As a follow-up to my previous letter, I am reaching out to you related to Nikola’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders. There are four proposals we are asking for your support to approve.

Specifically, your affirmative vote for Proposal 2, which will allow us to increase the number of shares of our company's common stock, is very important. This proposal requires the majority of all outstanding shares for it to be approved. Therefore, you must actively vote your shares so they can be counted FOR the proposal. If you don’t vote at all, that is effectively a vote against this proposal.

I have shared more about your important role in our company’s future in a video published on our social channels at In addition, more specific information can be found in our proxy statement.

ALL stockholders are encouraged to VOTE, including individual holders, regardless of the number of shares you hold. Every vote matters. Stockholders as of the close of business on April 4, 2022, should vote their shares even if they no longer own them.
