Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On August 9, 2022, Shift Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022 by issuing a press release. The full text of the Company's press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The information “furnished” pursuant to this Item 2.02 (including Exhibit 99.1) shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On August 9, 2022, Shift Technologies, Inc. (the “Company,” “Shift,” “we” or “us”) announced the closure of 7 inventory inspection, reconditioning, and storage facilities, or “hubs,” as part of a strategic review of the business. The Company is consolidating its operations around its most efficient, online-centric fulfillment channel, and adjusting physical footprint and headcount accordingly. The Company is closing these 7 hubs during the third and fourth fiscal quarters of 2022. The hub closures will result in an estimated workforce reduction of approximately 60%.

The following hubs are being closed: Seattle, WA; San Diego, CA; Sacramento, CA; Austin, TX; Houston, TX; San Antonio, TX; and Dallas, TX.

The Company expects to incur charges related to the workforce reduction and hub closures. As a result of the workforce reduction and hub closures, we expect to incur one-time severance costs of approximately $2.4 million, and one-time non-cash charges of $11.5 to $14.5 million associated with the impairment of lease assets and associated fixed assets. The Company has not yet completed its analysis of additional charges associated with implementation of the workforce reduction and hub closures, and therefore is not able to make a good faith determination of an estimate of the amount, or range of amounts, of any additional charges such as contract termination costs. The Company will provide additional disclosure through an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K once it makes a determination of an estimate or range of estimates of such charges, if any.

The charges that the Company expects to incur are subject to a number of assumptions, and actual expenses may differ materially from the estimates disclosed above.

The Company will continue to evaluate its business plan as necessary to address trends in the marketplace and macroeconomic factors.

Item 2.06 Material Impairments.

To the extent required, the information contained in Item 2.05 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference herein.
