Preliminary Prospectus
41,000,000 Shares
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_mobileyetmfrnt-4c.jpg]
Mobileye Global Inc.
Class A Common Stock
This is an initial public offering of shares of our Class A common stock, and no public market currently exists for shares of our Class A common stock.
We expect the initial public offering price will be between $18.00 and $20.00 per share.
We intend to use the net proceeds that we receive from this offering and the concurrent private placement as follows: (i) to retain for working capital and general corporate purposes a portion of the net proceeds in such amount as is necessary so that our parent company Intel Corporation, a Delaware corporation (Nasdaq: INTC) (together with its subsidiaries other than us, “Intel”), ensures that, immediately after completion of this offering, we have $1.0 billion in cash, cash equivalents or marketable securities in accordance with the terms of the Master Transaction Agreement (as defined below); and (ii) to use the remainder to repay a portion of the indebtedness owed to Intel under the Dividend Note (as defined below). Intel informed us that it intends to contribute to Mobileye Global Inc. any remaining portion of the Dividend Note in excess of such repayment in connection with this offering and the concurrent private placement, so that no amounts under the Dividend Note would remain owed by us to Intel after the completion of the transactions contemplated by this offering.
We have granted the underwriters an option for a period of 30 days after the date of this prospectus to purchase up to an additional 6,150,000 shares of our Class A common stock from us at the initial public offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions.
Following this offering, we will have two classes of authorized common stock: Class A common stock and Class B common stock. The rights of the holders of our Class A common stock and Class B common stock will be identical, except with respect to voting, transfer, and conversion rights. Each share of our Class A common stock will be entitled to one vote. Each share of our Class B common stock will be entitled to ten votes and will be convertible at any time into one share of our Class A common stock, subject to certain conditions. Immediately prior to the completion of this offering, Intel will be our only beneficial owner. Immediately following the completion of this offering, Intel will beneficially own all of the outstanding shares of our Class B common stock representing approximately 99.4% of the voting power of our common stock (or approximately 99.3% if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full). As a result, we will be a “controlled company” within the meaning of the corporate governance standards of The Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”). See “Management — Controlled Company Exemption” and “Description of Capital Stock — Common Stock.”
Baillie Gifford and Norges Bank Investment Management (collectively, the “Cornerstone Investors”) have, severally and not jointly, indicated an interest in purchasing up to an aggregate of $330 million of the shares of our Class A common stock offered in this offering at the initial public offering price and on the same terms and conditions as the other purchasers in this offering. The underwriters will receive the same underwriting discount on any shares of our Class A common stock purchased by the Cornerstone Investors as they will from any other shares of Class A common stock sold to the public in this offering. In addition, Professor Amnon Shashua, our Chief Executive Officer, President, and a member of our board of directors, has indicated an interest in purchasing up to $10 million of the shares of our Class A common stock offered in this offering at the initial public offering price. Because these indications of interest are not binding agreements or commitments to purchase, the Cornerstone Investors and/or Professor Shashua could determine to purchase more, less, or no shares in this offering, and the underwriters could determine to sell more, less, or no shares to any of the Cornerstone Investors or Professor Shashua. As a result, the underwriters may allocate such shares to other investors in this offering.
Investment entities affiliated with General Atlantic, L.P. (collectively, “General Atlantic”) have agreed to purchase $100 million of shares of our Class A common stock at a price per share equal to the initial public offering price per share in a concurrent private placement. The sale of such shares will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The concurrent private placement is expected to close immediately following the closing of this offering and is subject to customary closing conditions, including the completion of this offering. The closing of this offering is not conditioned upon the closing of the concurrent private placement.
We have applied to list the shares of our Class A common stock on Nasdaq under the symbol “MBLY”.
Investing in our common stock involves risks. See “Risk Factors” beginning on page 25 to read about certain factors you should consider before buying our common stock.
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of this prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

Company Overview
Mobileye is a leader in the development and deployment of advanced driver assistance systems (“ADAS”) and autonomous driving technologies and solutions. We pioneered ADAS technology more than 20 years ago and have continuously expanded the scope of our ADAS offerings, while leading the evolution to autonomous driving solutions.
Our portfolio of solutions is built upon a comprehensive suite of purpose-built software and hardware technologies designed to provide the capabilities needed to make the future of ADAS and autonomous driving a reality. These technologies can be harnessed to deliver mission-critical capabilities at the edge and in the cloud, advancing the safety of road users, and revolutionizing the driving experience and the movement of people and goods globally.
While today ADAS is central to the advancement of automotive safety, we believe that the future of mobility is autonomous. However, mass adoption of autonomous vehicles is still nascent. Full autonomy — where a human is not actively engaged in driving the vehicle for extended periods of time — requires the autonomous driving solution to be capable of navigating any environment in any condition at any time. Additionally, developing a technology platform whose decision-making process and resulting actions are verifiable is critical to enabling autonomous driving solutions at scale. The ability to drive autonomously not only requires a substantial amount of data, but also a robust technology platform that can withstand the validation and audit process of global regulatory bodies. Finally, the autonomous driving solution needs to be produced at a cost that makes it affordable. We are building our technology platform to address these fundamental and significant challenges in order to enable the full spectrum of solutions, from ADAS to autonomous driving.
We believe that our industry-leading technology platform, built upon over 20 years of research, development, data collection and validation, and purpose-built software and hardware design, gives us a differentiated ability to not only deliver excellent safety ratings and maintain a leadership position with our ADAS solutions, but also to make the mass deployment of autonomous driving solutions a reality. We also believe that the breadth of our solutions, combined with our global customer base, represents a significant market opportunity for us. Our platform is modular by design, and it is highly customizable, which allows our customers to benefit from our cutting-edge, verified, and validated core ADAS capabilities, while enabling our customers to augment and differentiate their offerings. We estimate the current total addressable market (“TAM”) to be approximately $16 billion, composed entirely of selected ADAS market opportunities. We expect the near-term TAM to be approximately $40 billion and the long-term TAM to be approximately $480 billion, as the value of ADAS functionality increases and as Autonomous Vehicle (“AV”) deployment, both in consumer-owned vehicles and fleet-owned vehicle networks, accelerates. We define the near-term TAM as the market size in or about 2026 and the long-term TAM as the market size in or about 2030. The TAM combines market opportunities in ADAS and AV, including Autonomous Mobility as a Service (“AMaaS”).
We have experienced significant growth since our founding. For 2021, 2020, and 2019, our revenue was $1.4 billion, $967 million, and $879 million, respectively, representing year-over-year growth of 43% in 2021. For the six months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021, our revenue was $854 million and $704 million, respectively, representing period-over-period growth of 21%. We currently derive substantially all of our revenue from our commercially deployed ADAS solutions. We recorded net losses of $75 million, $196 million, and $328 million in 2021, 2020, and 2019, respectively. We recorded a net loss of $67 million and net income of $4 million in the six months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021, respectively. Our Adjusted Net Income, a non-GAAP financial measure, for 2021, 2020 and 2019 was $474 million, $289 million, and
 
1

 
$51 million, respectively. Our Adjusted Net Income for the six months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021 was $276 million and $270 million, respectively.
As noted elsewhere in this prospectus, the six months ended July 2, 2022 contains an additional week as a result of 2022 being a 53-week fiscal year while 2021, 2020, and 2019 are 52-week fiscal years. However, the inclusion of the additional week does not have a material impact on our revenue and cost of revenue as the timing of deliveries to customers is not consistent from week-to-week. Further, most of our expenses (such as payroll) are incurred on a monthly basis and, as such, the accrual for the additional week does not materially impact our results of operations.
As of October 1, 2022, our solutions had been installed in approximately 800 vehicle models (including local country, year, and other vehicle model variations), and our System-on-Chips (“SoCs”) had been deployed in over 125 million vehicles. We are actively working with more than 50 Original Equipment Manufacturers (“OEMs”) worldwide on the implementation of our ADAS solutions, and we announced over 40 new design wins in 2021 alone. In the nine months ended October 1, 2022, we shipped approximately 24.0 million of our SoCs. This represents an increase from the approximately 21.2 million of our SoCs that we shipped in the first nine months of 2021. In 2021, 2020, and 2019, we shipped approximately 28.1 million, 19.7 million, and 17.5 million, respectively, of our SoCs. We estimate, based on our existing design wins through October 1, 2022, that our ADAS solutions will be deployed in more than an additional 270 million vehicles by 2030, including approximately 54 million vehicles based on our 2022 design wins through October 1, 2022 and approximately 50 million vehicles based on our 2021 design wins. These estimates are based on projections of future production volumes that were provided by the OEMs at the time of sourcing our design wins with them for the models related to those design wins. These estimates may deviate from actual production volume (which may be higher or lower than the estimates) and do not include design wins after October 1, 2022.
We were founded in Israel in 1999. Our co-founder, Professor Amnon Shashua, is our President and Chief Executive Officer. Prior to being acquired by Intel for $15.3 billion in 2017, we completed an initial public offering in 2014 and traded under the symbol “MBLY” on the New York Stock Exchange.
Our Technology Platform is Built to Enable the Full-Stack of Autonomous Solutions
Our technology platform, which includes our software and hardware intellectual property, leverages our decades of experience as a technology leader for sensing and perception solutions for the automotive industry and our focused efforts to build highly scalable and cost-efficient autonomous solutions. Our technologies are foundational to the development and deployment of our ADAS capabilities and consumer AV. Our platform is built on five fundamental pillars:

highly advanced, road-tested, sensing and perception technologies built upon years of technology leadership in computer vision and powered by our mission critical software and purpose-built EyeQ® family of SoCs;

a high-precision mapping system, our Road Experience Management™ (“REM™”), that generates AV maps from crowd-sourced data that is uploaded and analyzed in the cloud from REM™-equipped production ADAS solutions that are deployed on vehicles on the road;

a redundant sensor fusion architecture, which we call True Redundancy™, designed to employ two independent perception subsystems — one based solely on cameras, and the other solely on a radar-light detection and ranging (“lidar”) subsystem, to enable our goal of building a fully autonomous driving-system that can be validated as safer than human-driven vehicles and deployed in a cost-efficient manner;

the design of next generation imaging-radars, a solution targeted to reduce the need for multiple lidar sensors, combined with a single front-facing lidar sensor in the redundant sensor configuration of the future, to enable our goal of building a cost-effective fully autonomous driving-system; and

our Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (“RSS”) framework, which has continuously been optimized since it was first published in 2017, is used by international bodies that are currently developing standards with respect to the safety of AV, and forms the backbone of our human-like, computationally efficient, driving policy and decision-making engine.
 
2

 
These five pillars form the core of our platform, which is highly customizable, and we intend to deploy them with increasing functionality to continue to enhance our market-leading ADAS solutions and lead the evolution to autonomous driving solutions.
Efficiency and Scale are the Foundation of our Rich Portfolio of Solutions
We are focused on offering full-stack solutions across the ADAS and autonomous driving markets. These include or are expected to include:

a range of ADAS solutions supporting not only “base” features to meet global regulatory requirements and safety ratings, but also higher-function cloud-enhanced feature sets including crowd-sourced maps and “eyes-on/hands-free” point-to-point assisted driving solutions;

“eyes-off/hands-free” autonomous driving solutions with a human driver still in the driver’s seat that may require driver intervention in certain situations for consumer AV with the ability to drive safely without geofenced limitations; and

a set of solutions for AMaaS, including a self-driving system, the self-driving vehicles delivered in partnership with OEMs, and a customer-facing application for the movement of people and goods.
We believe we can reach series production for each of these technologies in the future, as each is accomplished by adding a block of our discrete intellectual property that is either in production today or in advanced development stages. We believe that our range of value-creating solutions that are scalable, verifiable, and cost-effective represent a significant competitive advantage.
Efficiency
Our purpose-built EyeQ® family of SoCs have a low power consumption profile and tight software/hardware coupling to achieve “lean compute” for efficiency. The principle of efficiency permeates the overall solution design, including our True RedundancyTM approach, with separate subsystems to increase robustness and reduce the compute resources required to validate the solution, and RSS, which separates the perception system’s validation from the driving policy system. Both of these are critical contributors to achieving efficient solutions.
Scale
We achieve scale by designing our solutions to operate at a cost and performance level that allows our solutions to become ubiquitous. We have designed our solutions to operate with four scale-driven elements:

our REM™ crowd-sourced AV maps allow the map-building and map-updating process to be automated. Our AV maps are designed to enable vehicles equipped with our new category of cloud-enhanced ADAS that we call “Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist” and autonomous driving solutions to drive without the limitations of pre-mapped geofenced zones. These AV maps will support our efforts to deploy in new cities and geographies quickly;

our cost-optimized EyeQ® SoC family is highly scalable and built to be at the core of our full spectrum of current and future ADAS and AV solutions, from base ADAS to autonomous driving. Our current EyeQ®4Mid, 4High, 5Mid, 5High, and our announced 6Lite, and 6High, cover the entire spectrum of our ADAS solutions portfolio, and our announced EyeQ Ultra™, a monolithic “AV-on-Chip”, covers our autonomous driving solutions portfolio;

our software-defined imaging radars and associated perception technology are designed to function as a second redundant perception layer. By reducing the lidar content per vehicle, we believe we will be able to reduce costs significantly, and facilitate consumer AV and AMaaS solutions at scale; and

our driving policy (RSS-based) is designed for global deployment, as it does not rely on local or regional driving cultural norms. In 2021, we announced the expected initial commercial deployment of our AMaaS offering in Munich and Tel Aviv together with Moovit in addition to our current testing sites in China, Israel, Detroit, Miami, Munich, Paris, Stuttgart and Tokyo.

We Have a History of Innovation and Market Leadership
As of October 1, 2022, our solutions had been installed in approximately 800 vehicle models (including local country, year, and other vehicle model variations), and our SoCs had been deployed in over 125 million vehicles. We are actively working with more than 50 OEMs worldwide on the implementation of our ADAS solutions, and we announced over 40 new design wins in 2021 alone. In the nine months ended October 1, 2022, we shipped approximately 24.0 million of our SoCs. This represents an increase from the approximately 21.2 million of our SoCs that we shipped in the first nine months of 2021. In 2021, 2020, and 2019, we shipped approximately 28.1 million, 19.7 million, and 17.5 million, respectively, of our SoCs. We estimate, based on our existing design wins through October 1, 2022, that our ADAS solutions will be deployed in more than an additional 270 million vehicles by 2030, including approximately 54 million vehicles based on our 2022 design wins through October 1, 2022 and approximately 50 million vehicles based on our 2021 design wins.
We currently ship a variety of ADAS solutions to 13 of the 15 largest automakers in the world in addition to many smaller OEMs, and we are recognized for our top-rated safety solutions globally.
Since 2007, when we first launched the EyeQ®1, we have introduced numerous industry-first ADAS products.
Our Family of Purpose-Built EyeQ® SoCs
Our family of purpose-built EyeQ® SoCs is fundamental to our leadership position in ADAS. Our EyeQ® SoCs incorporate a set of proprietary compute-acceleration models, to enhance the accuracy, quality, and functional safety of our perception solutions, while minimizing the power consumption to address the requirements of the automotive market. The EyeQ® family design enables a scalable Electronic Control Unit (“ECU”) architecture, thereby supporting a variety of ADAS solution architectures. Our EyeQ®5 SoCs and subsequent generations feature EyeQ Kit™ — an end-to-end software-development kit (“SDK”) intended to enable the co-hosting of our partners’ and customers’ workloads alongside our cutting-edge artificial intelligence (“AI”) technologies. Importantly, we believe EyeQ Kit™ accelerates time to market for our customers at a lower cost than alternative in-house solutions, while strengthening our partnerships by encouraging our customers to customize their offerings on top of our platform.
Road Experience Management™
REM™ is a cloud-based system that leverages the broad installed-base of REM™-equipped vehicles to build Mobileye Roadbook™, our crowd-sourced, high-definition maps of roads from around the world.
By augmenting our base ADAS with REM™ and Mobileye Roadbook™, we have pioneered the new ADAS category of cloud-enhanced ADAS, which we call Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist.
Our Roadmap to Enable Mass AV Deployment
We believe autonomous driving requires two further major advancements, each of which we are developing, and includes a regulatory framework for deploying AV at scale and a unique sensor fusion architecture, which enhances the effectiveness of the self-driving system.
RSS: Our Technology Safety Concept for Deploying AV at Scale
RSS is a formal, explicit, machine interpretable model governing the safety of our autonomous driving solutions’ driving policy. RSS articulates a set of plausible-worst-case assumptions regarding the behavior of other road-users, thereby enabling assertive, human-like driving while rigorously respecting the boundary between safe driving decisions and dangerous, risk-inducing ones.
True Redundancy™: Our Unique Sensor Fusion Architecture
Our unique architecture design, called True Redundancy™, further enhances the robustness and safety of our self-driving system. Rather than fusing all different sensor modalities prior to creating an “environment
 
4

 
model” of the world, we are developing two independent perception subsystems. One subsystem is powered solely by cameras and the other is powered by active sensors (radars and lidars).
A byproduct of our True Redundancy™ architecture is enabling subsystems of our AV development to “scale down” to ADAS, thus creating a seamless and scalable solution portfolio from ADAS to autonomous driving. For example, our Premium Driver Assist offering, Mobileye SuperVision™, launched by Geely Group for its ZEEKR premium electric vehicle brand, is a productization of the camera-only subsystem of our autonomous driving development, offering fully operational point-to-point assisted driving navigation.
We are designing a first-of-its-kind “software-defined” imaging radar with a dynamic range and resolution backed by advanced processing algorithms to enable an independent “sensing state.” We believe our custom designed imaging radars will allow us to eliminate the need for multiple high-cost lidars around the vehicle and require only a single front-facing lidar, thereby significantly lowering the overall cost of the required sensors compared to other solutions that use lidar-centric or lidar-only systems.
In January 2022, we announced a design win of our consumer AV system, Mobileye Chauffeur™, with ZEEKR. Consumer AV ranges from very limited operational design domain (e.g., low-speed, highway-only “traffic jam pilot” systems) to the much more expansive operational design domain that we are pursuing through our Mobileye Chauffeur™ solution. Mobileye Chauffeur™ is expected to be capable of “eyes-off/hands-free” driving with a human driver still in the driver’s seat, in a gradually expanding operational driving domain, and is expected to use surrounding imaging radars and front-facing lidar but may require driver intervention in certain situations.
Building upon Mobileye Chauffeur™, which targets the consumer-owned AV market, we are developing Mobileye Drive™, our Level 4 self-driving system targeted for fleet-owned AMaaS and goods delivery networks. We believe we are well positioned to commercialize these opportunities and that our scale, cost, and regulatory validation advantages will become evident to the broader market and lead to significant additional opportunities to grow these services globally.
The Autonomous Vehicle Revolution
We believe that the availability of AVs will cause a significant transformation in mobility, including vehicle ownership and utilization. We expect that AV technology will eventually be accessed by consumers through shared-vehicle AMaaS networks, as well as in consumer-owned and operated AVs. It is our view that, to reach the full potential of autonomous driving over the long-term, the technology solutions that enable these separate markets should converge over time, and that is reflected in our strategy.
Autonomous driving has the potential to dramatically increase the proliferation of shared mobility, creating greater utilization of what is currently a significantly underutilized asset: the car. We believe that this model will ultimately manifest itself in the form of networks operated by a variety of different automotive and technology companies where the consumer will be able to hail on-demand transportation at the click of a button, instead of owning a vehicle. As autonomous driving technology advances, a number of new transportation use cases are expected to emerge around the type of vehicle ownership, what is transported, and where and when the vehicle can operate.
Challenges to Making Autonomous Vehicles Ubiquitous
To make autonomous vehicles at scale a reality, we believe that there are three core challenges that must be addressed:

Regulatory Endorsement — Autonomous driving solutions must be architected, by design, to be verifiably safe, in a manner that fosters broad societal and regulatory endorsement.

Geographic Scale — Geographic scale refers to the challenge of creating high-definition maps with great detail and accuracy, and keeping those maps continuously updated, which is crucial for series production AVs.

Cost — In order for autonomous driving consumer vehicles to scale in volume, we believe the cost of the self-driving system needs to be reduced significantly, such as to several thousands of dollars, an order of magnitude lower than the cost of market solutions to date.

Our Solutions
We are building a robust portfolio of end-to-end ADAS and autonomous driving solutions to provide the capabilities needed for the future of autonomous driving, leveraging a comprehensive suite of purpose-built software and hardware technologies. We pioneered “base” ADAS features to meet global regulatory requirements and safety ratings with our Driver Assist solution and we have since created a new category of ADAS with our Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist and Premium Driver Assist offerings. Additionally, by leveraging Mobileye SuperVision’s™ full-surround computer vision and True Redundancy™, we are developing Mobileye Chauffeur™, our consumer AV solution with a human driver still in the driver’s seat that may require driver intervention in certain situations, and Mobileye Drive™, our Level 4 autonomous driving solution. Together with Moovit’s urban mobility and transit application and its global user base, we are developing our own AMaaS offering for consumers built upon Mobileye Drive™. Our current offerings to Tier 1 and OEM customers do not include cameras, radars, lidar systems, or other sensors (except in particular cases). We intend in the future to offer radar and lidar products that are currently in development stages.

Driver Assist.   Base Driver Assist functions are foundational to our spectrum of ADAS and AV solutions and include critical safety features such as real-time detection of road users, geometry, semantics, and markings to provide safety alerts and emergency interventions.

Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist.   Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist provides drivers with high-accuracy interpretations of a scene in real-time utilizing centimeter-level drivable path accuracy, foresight of the path ahead, and other semantic information provided by our crowdsourced REM™ mapping system.

Mobileye SuperVision™ Lite.   A new Premium Driver Assist offering which will provide eyes-on/hands-free highway navigation and assisted driving as well as autonomous parking utilizing cloud-based enhancements such as REM™ and supporting over-the-air (“OTA”) updates.

Mobileye SuperVision™.   Mobileye SuperVision™, our highest-functioning Premium Driver Assist offering, is a fully operational point-to-point assisted driving navigation solution on various road types and includes cloud-based enhancements such as REM™ and supports OTA updates.

Mobileye Chauffeur™.   Mobileye Chauffeur’s™ first generation solution will be based on six EyeQ®5 High SoCs, and the next generation will be powered by three EyeQ®6 High SoCs or one EyeQ Ultra™, our AV-on-Chip. It will combine our leading computer vision camera-based perception subsystem with a radar-lidar subsystem. Mobileye Chauffeur™ will provide 360-degrees of coverage through two independent and redundant sensing subsystems offering True Redundancy™ to reduce the validation burden and, along with REM™ AV maps and RSS, to increase scalability and safety.

Mobileye Drive™.   Mobileye Drive™, our Level 4 solution, will encompass our core autonomous driving technologies found in Mobileye Chauffeur™ and will deliver the driving functions without the need for any in-vehicle human intervention by adding teleoperability and by minimizing cases where human input would be required.
Mobileye Drive™ may be offered across two increasingly vertically integrated product sets, each underpinned by our full set of autonomous driving technology solutions:

Self-Driving System & Vehicles.   We expect to sell our Mobileye Drive™ Level 4 self-driving system through business-to-business channels into a range of transportation network operators and vehicle OEMs, which would operate a variety of services (e.g., consumer-facing AMaaS, transportation on demand, and the delivery of goods).

AMaaS.   Additionally, Mobileye Drive™ will be designed to interface with Moovit’s mobility-as-a-service (“MaaS”) platform, which adds a service layer and a ready-made user base. Moovit's global user base will provide a ready consumer base for our business-to-business customers. It also will provide the necessary service and user-base layer within our own AMaaS solution where we plan to deploy Mobileye-Drive-enabled self-driving vehicles in partnership with fleet operators.

Overall, we believe our proprietary set of software and hardware technology solutions results in significant competitive advantages and a wider range of potential offerings compared to other approaches by industry participants attempting to commercialize network-deployed autonomous vehicles.
Our Data Driven Network Effect
We have assembled a substantial dataset of real-world driving experience, encompassing over 200 petabytes of data, which includes over 23 million clips collected over decades of driving on urban, highway, and arterial roads in over 80 countries. This data, plus proprietary search tools, enables us to develop and continuously improve our advanced computer vision algorithms to fit road scenarios and use cases that our system encounters. We utilize up to approximately 500,000 cloud CPU cores to process approximately 100 petabytes of data every month. We have developed sophisticated 2D and 3D automatic-labeling methodologies that, together with a team of over 2,300 external specialized annotators, allow for fast development cycles for our computer vision engines based on the dataset we have. In addition, our advanced data labeling infrastructure and data mining tools can unlock significant data-driven insights.
Additionally, we have created a separate dataset of 8.6 billion miles of roads driven as of July 2, 2022 from, based on our estimates, approximately 1.5 million REM™-enabled vehicles worldwide. We then apply a series of on-cloud algorithms to build this crowd-sourced data into a high-definition, rapidly updating map that contains a rich variety of information, including road geometry, drivable paths, common speeds, right-of-way, and traffic light-to-lane associations. We estimate that the data we have accumulated covers over 90% and 80% of the approximately 0.8 million miles of motorway, trunk, and primary road types in each of the United States and Europe, respectively. This data enables us to create robust high definition maps to support solutions across the product spectrum from cloud-enhanced ADAS to Mobileye SuperVision Lite and Mobileye SuperVision to Mobileye Drive and Mobileye Chauffeur.
These two datasets create powerful network effects as we seek to continually improve our solutions as more vehicles are deployed with our technology.
Our Competitive Strengths
We believe that our leadership in ADAS and autonomous driving is based primarily on our: (1) first-mover advantage; (2) technology, including differentiated technological cores and solution architectures; (3) comprehensive portfolio of solutions; (4) delivery, including agility, response times, and time-to-market; and (5) inherent cost-driven advantages. These significant advantages form the basis for our competitive strengths as follows:

Coupling of software and hardware delivers optimized performance and efficiency — We design our own purpose-built SoCs and develop a software stack to optimally match the architecture of the SoCs with the computational workloads required by the software stack. Our approach results in low power consumption and lean compute, yet is able to support a very powerful range of solutions for the ADAS and AV markets.

Scalable EyeQ® SoC design addresses the entire spectrum of ADAS and autonomous driving — Our EyeQ® architecture is highly scalable, powers our solutions, ranging from our base ADAS to highly advanced autonomous driving solutions and is designed to support the increasingly computationally intensive demands of ADAS and autonomous driving solutions on the same architecture.

EyeQ Kit™ for developing and deploying differentiated features on top of EyeQ® SoC — Our platform is modular by design, and it is highly customizable, which allows our customers to benefit from our cutting-edge, verified, and validated core ADAS capabilities while enabling our customers to augment and differentiate their offerings. We believe EyeQ Kit™ accelerates time to market for our customers at a lower cost than alternative in-house solutions while strengthening our partnerships by encouraging our customers to customize their offerings on top of our platform.

Industry leading computer vision capabilities — We are a technology leader for computer vision solutions for ADAS, and we have continuously enhanced our leadership position since we launched with customers in 2007 through our ability to meet the extreme performance, accuracy, and cost metrics of our OEM customers.

“Scale by design” approach — Our technology platform is built to deliver autonomous driving solutions at scale by leveraging our REM™ mapping technology, our True Redundancy™ approach, our RSS and driving policy, and our active sensor architecture based on our imaging radars.

Autonomous driving-ADAS synergies The autonomous driving-ADAS interplay is bi-directional: advanced technologies transfer from autonomous driving to ADAS and significantly enhance our market proposition, and in turn, these advanced autonomous driving technologies are validated in commercial, mass market ADAS deployments and contribute to the process of verifying and validating the various elements of our autonomous driving solution stack.

Road Experience Management creates a powerful network effect and long-term competitive advantage — Our REM™ system is a crucial ingredient that we believe allows for: (1) defining a new category of cloud-enhanced ADAS that we call Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist; (2) evolving ADAS to an “eyes-on/hands-free” point-to-point assisted driving navigation; and (3) the scale deployment of AV. REM™ benefits from a powerful network effect, where more vehicles with REM™ enabled technology from which we are able to collect and process data, not only improves our own solutions, but also delivers benefits to our customers and to consumers through greater safety and expanded functionality. We believe this network effect creates a powerful competitive advantage, particularly given our leadership position in ADAS, as we are able to efficiently collect large amounts of data from our consumer solutions already deployed on roads globally through their regular use.

Data and technology advantage — We have assembled a substantial dataset of real-world driving experience, encompassing over 200 petabytes of data, which includes over 23 million clips collected over decades of driving on urban, highway, and arterial roads in over 80 countries. We utilize up to approximately 500,000 cloud CPU cores to process approximately 100 petabytes of data every month, which we believe demonstrates the size and scale of our data repository. Our dataset creates a powerful network effect as we seek to continually improve our solutions as more vehicles are deployed with our technology.

RSS and driving policy are designed for global deployment — RSS is the key enabler of our “lean compute” driving policy design, where we distinctly separate driving comfort features from safety-related inhibitions and adjustments. Our RSS-based driving policy is designed for global deployment, as it does not need to be tailored to specific driving cultures.

Purpose-built imaging-radar unlocks consumer AV at scale — We are developing software-defined imaging-radar with cutting-edge dynamic range and resolution. Our differentiated True Redundancy™ architecture will leverage our imaging-radar, which we believe will give us the ability to significantly reduce the cost of the overall sensor suite by replacing multiple, expensive lidars around the vehicle with only a single front-facing lidar sensor, which we believe will support consumer AV production at scale.

Moovit provides a stand-ready user base for our AMaaS solutions — Moovit is our urban mobility and transit application. As of July 2, 2022, Moovit had over 1.5 billion users globally and service in over 3,500 cities across 112 countries, and was generating approximately six billion anonymous data points daily, tracking mobility demand patterns globally, enabling a key mobility intelligence layer that can be used to intelligently predict ride demand and thus help to optimize fleet utilization.

Deep, collaborative ecosystem relationships Our deep global relationships with key partners across the value chain, from component suppliers, through Tier 1 customers and up to OEMs, offer us a broad and diverse set of collaboration opportunities for high-performance computing, networking, and advanced packaging technologies, among others, from the vehicle to the cloud.
Our Growth Strategies

In the future, we plan to create revenue streams from our OTA capabilities and AV maps through solution upgrades.

Further enhance our Premium Driver Assist solutions — Our Mobileye SuperVision™ and SuperVision™ Lite solutions represent comprehensive “eyes-on/hands-free” ADAS solutions that can be supplemented by OEMs through the use of our EyeQ Kit™ platform to customize their offerings on top of our platform. We believe that the high value-add, our continuous efforts to add capabilities, as well as the competitive price point of Mobileye SuperVision™ will allow it to gain strong market traction in the coming years.

Innovate and commercialize our next-generation autonomous driving solutions — Propelled by our next generation AV-on-Chip SoC, which we call EyeQ Ultra™, our surround computer vision Mobileye SuperVision™ solution, and our True Redundancy™ architecture, we believe that we will be positioned to deliver an autonomous driving solution that can enable the mass adoption of AV. We believe our premium ADAS capabilities with our Mobileye SuperVision™ solution and Level 4 capabilities with Mobileye Drive™ will help us provide our customers with innovative solutions and enable further growth for us.

Utilize our flexible platform to expand our collaboration with our OEM customers — We have designed our EyeQ® SoCs together with an EyeQ Kit™ to enable co-hosting of third-party software and customer workloads on vehicles equipped with our solutions. We plan to continue to develop our platform to offer our customers the ability to seamlessly address the capabilities and features that they demand by customizing their offerings on top of our platform. We are partnering with leading technology suppliers to expand our products by offering features and services alongside our core technology platform.

Capitalize on our active sensor technology — We intend to continue to develop and commercialize next-generation active sensors such as software-defined imaging radars, which leverage our AI capabilities. Together with Intel, we also are currently in the early stages of development of frequency-modulated continuous wave (“FMCW”) lidar, which has the potential to replace alternative third-party lidar to further enhance the performance of our sensor suite.

Accelerate our roadmap of next generation proprietary EyeQ® SoCs — Our EyeQ® SoCs are purpose-built for sensing and perception technologies and optimized for high throughput and power efficiency. Our architecture is highly scalable and is designed to support the increasing and computationally intensive demands of both the continued evolution of ADAS and future autonomous driving applications. We intend to continue to accelerate our technology leadership with a focus on silicon, packaging, and systems level needs to deliver cost-efficient processing at the edge.

Utilize our substantial and growing dataset to continuously improve the intelligence and robustness of our solutions — We will continue to grow the depth and breadth of our substantial dataset, which, as of July 2, 2022, encompassed over 200 petabytes of data and 8.6 billion miles of AV mapped roads from, based on our estimates, approximately 1.5 million REM™-enabled vehicles worldwide. We believe that our ability to use this data to create, maintain, and improve our high-precision AV maps through our REM™ mapping system will enable us to further improve our ADAS offerings and position us well for autonomous driving.

Establish our Level 4 autonomous and AMaaS solutions — We believe that Mobileye Chauffeur™ and Mobileye Drive™ will unlock new use cases and end-consumers for our OEM and fleet-owner customers, which will be applicable for both the AMaaS and consumer AV markets. We expect to add additional cities to our AMaaS offerings to showcase our industry-leading technology and to help accelerate the pace of AV adoption.

Benefit from opportunities in large emerging markets — We intend to continue to invest in partnerships in China and India, among other emerging markets, to accelerate ADAS and autonomous driving adoption. We believe our long-term partnerships with large Chinese OEMs such as Geely, Great Wall Motors, and SAIC, and Indian OEMs such as Mahindra & Mahindra position our solutions at the forefront of continued innovation and market growth.

amortization of acquisition related intangibles and share-based compensation expense. Adjusted Gross Margin is calculated as Adjusted Gross Profit divided by total revenue.

We define Adjusted Operating Income as operating loss presented in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to exclude amortization of acquisition related intangibles, share-based compensation expenses and expenses related to this offering. Operating margin is calculated as operating loss divided by total revenue, and Adjusted Operating Margin is calculated as Adjusted Operating Income divided by total revenue. For additional information about our non-GAAP measures, see “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Result of Operations — Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
We estimate revenue for the three months ended October 1, 2022 to be $450 million, up by $124 million, or 38%, compared to the three months ended September 25, 2021, driven by an increase of $87 million in sales of EyeQ® SoC and an increase of $37 million in sales of Mobileye SuperVision™, which was launched during the fourth quarter of 2021 and for which no revenue was generated in the three months ended September 25, 2021.
We estimate our gross profit for the three months ended October 1, 2022 to increase by $62 million to $64 million as compared to the three months ended September 25, 2021, primarily due to our increase in revenue. We estimate our gross margin to increase to 48% during the three months ended October 1, 2022 from 47% during the three months ended September 25, 2021, mainly due to the lower impact of the cost attributable to amortization of intangible assets as a percentage of revenues. This was partially offset by the impact of SuperVision™ sales contributing lower margin given the greater hardware content this product contains. The rise in the cost of our EyeQ® SoCs due to the global semiconductor shortage and inflationary pressures also had a downward impact on our gross margin, but to a lesser extent than the foregoing because we entered 2022 with an opening balance of EyeQ® SoC inventory that we previously acquired at lower-than-current prices and passed on some of the increased costs of EyeQ® SoCs acquired at current prices to our customers.
We estimate our operating loss for the three months ended October 1, 2022 to increase by $5 million to $9 million as compared to the three months ended September 25, 2021, due to an increase in research and development expenses and an increase in amortization of acquired intangible assets and share-based compensation expense, partially offset by revenue growth.

Risk Factor Summary
Our business is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that you should understand before making an investment decision. These risks are discussed more fully in the section entitled “Risk Factors” following this prospectus summary. These include:

If we are unable to develop and introduce new solutions and improve existing solutions in a cost-effective and timely manner, our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.

We invest significantly in research and development, and to the extent our research and development efforts are unsuccessful, our competitive position would be negatively impacted and our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.

We operate in a highly competitive market.

We have experienced and are continuing to experience constraints in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs as the result of the global semiconductor shortage, and future shortages in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs or other critical parts would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

We face additional supply chain risks and risks of interruption of requisite services, including, as a result of our reliance on a single supplier or limited suppliers and vendors, for certain components, equipment, and services.

Increases in costs of the materials and other components that we use in our solutions would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

Our business may suffer from claims relating to, among other things, actual or alleged defects in our solutions, or if our solutions actually or allegedly fail to perform as expected, and publicity related to these claims could harm our reputation and decrease demand for our solutions or increase regulatory scrutiny of our solutions.

We invest significant effort and money seeking OEM selection of our solutions, and there can be no assurance that these efforts will result in the selection of our solutions for use in production models. If we fail to achieve a design win after incurring substantial expenditures in these efforts, our future business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
 
16

 

There is no guarantee that our customers will purchase our solutions in any certain quantity or at any certain price even after we achieve design wins, and there may be significant delays between the time we achieve a design win until we realize revenue from the vehicle model.

We depend on a limited number of Tier 1 customers and OEMs for a substantial portion of our revenue, and the loss of, or a significant reduction in sales to, one or more of our major Tier 1 customers and/or the discontinued incorporation of our solutions by one or more major OEMs in their vehicle models would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

We are highly dependent on the services of Professor Amnon Shashua, our President and Chief Executive Officer.

If we are unable to attract, retain, and motivate key employees, then our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.

We face integration risks and costs associated with companies, assets, employees, products, and technologies that we have or that we may acquire, including with our acquisition of Moovit.

Interruptions to our information technology systems and networks and cybersecurity incidents could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

Security breaches and other disruptions of our in-vehicle systems and related data could impact the safety of our end users and reduce confidence in us and our solutions.

The current uncertain economic environment and inflationary conditions may adversely affect global vehicle production and demand for our solutions.

If OEMs are unable to maintain and increase consumer acceptance of ADAS and autonomous driving technology, our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.

We operate in an industry that is new and rapidly evolving, and market opportunity estimates and market growth forecasts included in this prospectus are subject to significant uncertainty.

Our business, results of operations, and financial condition may be adversely affected by changes in automotive safety regulations or concerns that could increase our costs or delay or halt adoption of our solutions.

The dual class structure of our common stock will have the effect of concentrating voting control with Intel, and Intel will beneficially own shares of our Class B common stock, representing a majority of the shares of our common stock and approximately 99.4% of the voting power of our outstanding capital stock immediately following this offering. This will limit or preclude your ability to influence corporate matters.

We may have conflicts of interest with Intel, and because of (i) certain provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation relating to related person transactions and corporate opportunities, (ii) agreements we have and will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, and (iii) Intel’s controlling beneficial ownership interest in our company, we may not be able to resolve such conflicts on terms favorable to us.

Indications of interest
The Cornerstone Investors have, severally and not jointly, indicated an interest in purchasing up to an aggregate of $330 million of the shares of our Class A common stock offered in this offering at the initial public offering price and on the same terms and conditions as the other purchasers in this offering. The underwriters will receive the same underwriting discount on any shares of our Class A common stock purchased by the Cornerstone Investors as they will from any other shares of Class A common stock sold to the public in this offering, and any such shares would not be subject to a lock-up. In addition, Professor Shashua, our Chief Executive Officer, President, and a member of our board of directors, has indicated an interest in purchasing up to $10 million of the shares of our Class A common stock offered in this offering at the initial public offering price, and any such shares would be subject to a lock-up agreement with the underwriters. See “Underwriting” for a description of the lock-up agreements applicable to our shares. Because these indications of interest are not binding agreements or commitments to purchase, the Cornerstone Investors and/or Professor Shashua could determine to purchase more, less, or no shares in this offering, and the underwriters could determine to sell more, less, or no shares to any of the Cornerstone Investors or Professor Shashua. As a result, the underwriters may allocate such shares to other investors in this offering.
Risk Factors
See “Risk Factors” for a discussion of factors you should carefully consider before deciding to invest in our Class A common stock.

SUMMARY HISTORICAL AND UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Set forth below are summary historical and unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information. The summary historical combined financial information includes costs of our business, which include the allocation of certain expenses from Intel. We believe these allocations were made on a reasonable basis. The summary historical combined balance sheet information as of December 25, 2021 and December 26, 2020, and the summary historical combined statements of operations information for the years ended December 25, 2021, December 26, 2020, and December 28, 2019 have been derived from the historical combined financial statements of Mobileye Group (as such term is described in our combined financial statements and the accompanying notes included elsewhere in this prospectus) and included elsewhere in this prospectus. The summary condensed combined statements of operations for the six months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021 and the condensed combined balance sheet data as of July 2, 2022, have been derived from our unaudited condensed combined financial statements included elsewhere in this prospectus. The unaudited condensed combined financial statements were prepared on the same basis as the audited combined financial statements and have included all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments that, in our opinion, are necessary to state fairly the financial information set forth in those statements. The summary unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information has been derived from the information contained in the section titled “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information.”
The summary historical and unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information may not be indicative of our future performance as a stand-alone public company. You should read the summary financial information presented below in conjunction with the information included under the headings “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and our historical combined financial statements and the accompanying notes included elsewhere in this prospectus.

Under the terms of the Master Transaction Agreement we will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, immediately after completion of this offering and on a pro forma basis after all expenses of this offering have been paid (and after giving effect to any repayment of any indebtedness by us to Intel and any other transactions contemplated to occur substantially concurrently with this offering), Intel agrees to ensure that we will have $1.0 billion in cash, cash equivalents, or marketable securities. Any excess net proceeds from this offering will be used to repay indebtedness owed to Intel under the Dividend Note. Accordingly, an increase or decrease in the assumed initial public offering price per share would not increase or decrease our cash and cash equivalents, total assets or total equity (whether or not the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full). Similarly, an increase or decrease in the number of shares of our Class A common stock offered by us would not increase or decrease our cash and cash equivalents, total assets or total equity.

RISK FACTORS
An investment in our Class A common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described below together with other information set forth in this prospectus before investing in our Class A common stock. If any of the following risks or uncertainties actually occur, our business, financial condition, prospects, results of operations, and cash flow could be materially and adversely affected. In that case, the market price of our Class A common stock could decline and you may lose all or a part of your investment. The risks discussed below are not the only risks we face. Additional risks or uncertainties not currently known to us, or that we currently deem immaterial, may also have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, prospects, results of operations, or cash flows. We cannot assure you that any of the events discussed in the risk factors below will not occur.
Risks Related to Our Business
If we are unable to develop and introduce new solutions and improve existing solutions in a cost-effective and timely manner, then our competitive position would be negatively impacted and our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Our business, results of operations, and financial condition depend on our ability to complete development of our existing ADAS and autonomous driving programs and to develop and introduce new and enhanced solutions that incorporate and integrate the latest technological advancements in sensing and perception technologies, software and hardware, and camera, radar, lidar, mapping, and AI technologies to satisfy evolving customer, regulatory, and safety rating requirements. For example, we will need to complete the development and achieve cost efficient production at scale of new generations of our EyeQ® SoCs and our software-defined radar, and source lidar cost effectively, which could include the development of our FMCW lidar, all of which are important components of our planned approach to address the AMaaS and consumer AV markets. This prospectus contains descriptions of our current expectations regarding the years by which we expect to obtain engineering samples, commence production, or release our anticipated future solutions. These time periods are subject to significant uncertainty. We may encounter significant unexpected technical and production challenges, or delays in completing the development of these and other solutions and ramping production in a cost-efficient manner. The development of these and other new and enhanced solutions requires us to invest resources in research and development and also requires that we:

design innovative, accurate, and safety- and comfort-enhancing functions that differentiate our solutions from those of our competitors;

continuously improve the reliability of, and reduce and ultimately remove the requirement for human intervention with, our autonomous driving technology;

cooperate effectively on new designs and development with our customers, suppliers and partners;

respond effectively to technological changes and product announcements by our competitors; and

adjust to changing customer requirements, market conditions, and regulatory and rating standards quickly and cost-effectively.
If there are delays in, or if we fail to complete when expected or at all, our existing and new development programs, we may not be able to satisfy our customers’ requirements, achieve additional design wins with existing or new customers, or achieve broader market acceptance of our solutions, and our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected. In addition, the price of our solutions depends on the bundle included in the specific product. Our solutions have different margin profiles. As we develop, bundle, and sell full systems that include third-party hardware beyond EyeQ®, we expect that our gross margin will decrease on a percentage basis because of the greater third-party hardware content.
We invest significantly in research and development, and to the extent our research and development efforts are unsuccessful, our competitive position would be negatively impacted and our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
To compete successfully, we must maintain successful research and development efforts, develop new solutions, and improve our existing solutions, all ahead of competitors. We are focusing our research and
 
25

 
development efforts across several key emerging technologies, including computer vision, software-defined radar and FMCW lidar, the True Redundancy sensor fusion architecture, the REM mapping technology and our RSS model, and the Mobileye SuperVision Lite, Mobileye SuperVision, Mobileye Drive and Mobileye Chauffeur systems. These are ambitious initiatives, and we cannot guarantee that all of these efforts will deliver the benefits we anticipate or be homologated as expected. We must make research and development investments based on our views of the most promising approaches to address future customer needs in rapidly evolving markets, and we cannot be certain that we will target out research and development investments appropriately, or correctly anticipate the manner in which these markets will evolve. To the extent our research and development efforts do not produce timely improvements in utility, accuracy, safety, cost and operational efficiency, our competitive position will be harmed. We do not expect all of our research and development investments to be successful. Some of our efforts to develop and market new solutions may fail, and the solutions we invest in and develop may be rejected by regulators or may not be well received by customers, who may adopt competing technologies. We make significant investments in research and development, and our investments at times may not contribute to our future operating results for several years, if at all, and such contributions at times may not meet our expectations or even cover the costs of such investments, which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We operate in a highly competitive market.
The ADAS and autonomous driving industries are highly competitive, and we expect they will become even more competitive in the future. Our future success will depend on, among other things, our ability to continue developing superior advanced technology to remain competitive with our existing and any new competitors. Competition is based on, among other things, cost efficiency, reliability, the ability to develop and deploy increasingly complex technologies that provide for vehicle, passenger, and pedestrian safety in compliance with existing and future regulations, the ability to gather or access large validation datasets in order to train the required software and to continuously harvest new data in real-time, the ability to cost-effectively deploy hardware, the ability to integrate technologies and hardware with overall vehicle design and production, adoption by OEMs, and the ability to develop and maintain strategic relationships with other participants in the automotive industry.
A significant and growing number of established and new technology companies and automobile manufacturers have entered, or are reported to have plans to enter, the market for ADAS and autonomous driving solutions. For example, certain of our competitors have announced that they are operating autonomous robotaxis. Some of our competitors have significantly greater or better-established resources than we do to devote to the design, development, manufacturing, distribution, promotion, sale, and support of their products. Automakers who seek to develop their own in-house solutions may also become indirect competitors. Some OEMs that have incorporated our solutions in the past have decided, and some OEMs that currently incorporate our solutions may decide to design in-house solutions to replace our solutions that they currently implement. For example, Tesla had previously incorporated our ADAS solutions in their vehicles but transitioned to their own in-house ADAS solutions. Mercedes-Benz is also employing its own in-house solutions, with others such as General Motors, NIO, Volvo Cars, and Xpeng Motors also pursuing in-house solutions for portions of the ADAS software stack. In addition, our Tier 1 customers may be developing or may in the future develop competing solutions.
Tier 1 automotive supplier competitors include Bosch, Continental, and Denso. Our competitors in the silicon provider category include Ambarella, Advanced Micro Devices, Arriver / Qualcomm, Black Sesame Technologies, Horizon Robotics, Huawei, NVIDIA, NXP, Renesas Electronics, and Texas Instruments. Additional competitors that could emerge include large technology companies that are resource rich and able to deploy such resources to compete, as well as companies that are able to develop products that may not require the massive datasets upon which our technologies currently rely while still achieving the same effectiveness of algorithms.
In the autonomous driving market, including AMaaS and consumer AV, we face competition from technology companies, internal development teams from the automakers themselves, sometimes in combination with investments in early-stage autonomous vehicle technology companies, Tier 1 automotive suppliers, and robotaxi providers. AMaaS competitors include Argo AI, Aurora, Cruise, Motional, Pony.ai,
 
26

 
Waymo, Yandex, and Zoox in the United States and Europe and Auto X, Baidu, Deeproute.ai, Didi Chuxing, Momenta, and WeRide in China. Consumer AV competitors include Apple, Sony, and Tesla, who are developing self-driving vehicles for consumers.
Moovit competes against urban mobility applications and MaaS solutions, which provide transportation services and navigation data to consumers. Moovit’s free application competition includes Alphabet, Apple, Citymapper and Transit. Moovit’s application also competes with on-demand service providers that provide multi-modal ride services and route planning through their own services including Lyft, TransLoc, Trapeze, Uber, and Via.
See “Business — Our Competition.”
We have experienced and are continuing to experience constraints in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs as the result of the global semiconductor shortage, and future shortages in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs or other critical parts would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
The semiconductor industry is experiencing widespread shortages of substrates and other components and available foundry manufacturing capacity, and we anticipate that such shortages will continue. These factors, combined with the long lead times associated with wafer production, have contributed to a shortage of semiconductors. During 2021 and through the first half of 2022, STMicroelectronics N.V. (“STMicroelectronics”), our sole supplier of EyeQ® SoCs, was not able to meet our demand for EyeQ® SoCs, causing a significant reduction in our inventory level, and we expect to continue to experience a shortfall of chips during the second half of 2022. We have entered 2022 with significantly lower inventories of our EyeQ® SoCs as a result of the limited supply during 2021, and, due to continuing supply chain constraints, we are operating with minimal or no inventory of EyeQ® SoCs on hand. As a result, we are substantially reliant on timely shipments of EyeQ® SoCs from STMicroelectronics to fulfill customer orders and are unable to offset future supply constraints through the use of inventory on hand, In addition, without a solution to the shortages, we may continue to have insufficient inventory in subsequent fiscal years. Since our EyeQ® SoC is the core of our ADAS and autonomous driving solutions, continued shortages in the supply of sufficient EyeQ® SoCs to meet our production needs would impair our ability to meet our customers’ requirements in a timely manner, and would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. The limited supply of EyeQ® SoCs has already led to rescheduling deliveries to our customers on certain occasions and may continue to cause delays in our ability to fulfill our customers’ orders as scheduled. Moreover, global semiconductor shortages are continuing to constrain production and cause production delays by automakers, which we expect to result in reduced or delayed demand for our solutions. In addition, issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic have led to port congestion and intermittent supplier shutdowns and delays in the delivery of critical components, resulting in additional expenses to expedite delivery of critical parts. Sustaining the proliferation of our solutions will require the readiness and solvency of our suppliers and vendors, a stable and motivated workforce, and ongoing government cooperation, including for travel and visa allowances, which many governments have restricted in connection with efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic. In the future, to avoid supply chain constraints, we may build up inventories of EyeQ® SoCs which could require substantial amounts of capital. Furthermore, accumulating such inventories may expose us to risks regarding the obsolescence of such chips.
We depend on STMicroelectronics to manufacture our EyeQ® SoCs.
We currently purchase all of our EyeQ® SoCs from STMicroelectronics. Because of the complex proprietary nature of our EyeQ® SoCs, any transition from STMicroelectronics to a new supplier or, if there were a disaster at any of STMicroelectronics’ facilities involved in manufacturing our EyeQ® SoCs, bringing new facilities online, would take a significant period of time to complete and would likely result in our having insufficient inventory and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. In addition, our contractual relationship with STMicroelectronics does not provide us with long-term pricing or quantity guarantees, and both we and STMicroelectronics are free to terminate the arrangement at any time. Further, we are vulnerable to the risk that STMicroelectronics may be unable to meet demand for our EyeQ® SoCs or cease operations altogether. Moreover, STMicroelectronics depends on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (“TSMC”) as its subcontractor to manufacture our EyeQ® SoCs, and as a result, we are also vulnerable to the risk that TSMC may be unable to meet demand
 
27

 
or cease operations altogether. In addition, we may be affected by supply constraints and increased costs involving STMicroelectronics and TSMC resulting from the global semiconductor shortage. See “— We have experienced and are continuing to experience constraints in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs as the result of the global semiconductor shortage, and future shortages in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs or other critical parts would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.”
TSMC is located in Taiwan, and our ability to receive sufficient supplies of our EyeQ® SoCs could be adversely affected by events such as natural disasters in Taiwan, including earthquakes, drought and typhoons, the escalations of tensions between the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, including resulting from the People’s Republic of China’s recent step up of military exercises around Taiwan, political unrest, trade restrictions, or war. These same factors may also adversely affect the global supply of microchips and cause additional constraints on global automotive production.
We face additional supply chain risks and risks of interruption of requisite services, including, as a result of our reliance on a single or limited suppliers and vendors, for certain components, equipment, and services.
A large number of suppliers and vendors provide materials, equipment, and services that are used in the production of our solutions and other aspects of our business. Where possible, we seek to have several sources of supply. However, for certain materials, equipment, and services, we rely on a single or a limited number of direct and indirect suppliers and vendors, or upon direct and indirect suppliers and vendors in a single location. In addition, direct and indirect supplier and vendor consolidation or business failures can impact the nature, quality, availability, and pricing of the products and services available to us. For example, we currently depend on Amazon Web Services for cloud services in connection with our REM mapping system, Roadbook, and AMaaS solutions including the Moovit platform, and a failure of such cloud services would result in interruptions to our services. In addition, the semiconductor industry is experiencing widespread shortages of substrates. See “— We have experienced and are continuing to experience constraints in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs as the result of the global semiconductor shortage, and future shortages in the supply of our EyeQ® SoCs or other critical parts would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition” and “— We depend on STMicroelectronics to manufacture our EyeQ® SoCs.”
Finding and qualifying alternate or additional suppliers and vendors is often a lengthy process and can lead to production delays, interruptions to our services, or additional costs, and such alternatives are sometimes not available at all. The inability of suppliers or vendors to deliver necessary production materials, equipment, or services can disrupt the production processes of our solutions and make it more difficult for us to implement our business strategy. Suppliers and vendors periodically extend lead times, face capacity constraints, limit supplies, increase prices, experience quality issues, or encounter cybersecurity or other issues that can interrupt or increase the cost of our supply and services. Production of our solutions can be disrupted by the unavailability of resources, such as water, silicon, electricity, gases, and other materials. The unavailability or reduced availability of materials or resources would require us to reduce production or incur additional costs, which would harm our business and results of operations.
We also rely on third-party providers to manufacture, assemble, and test certain components and products. From time to time, these third parties are unable to perform these services on a timely or cost-effective basis, in sufficient volumes, or at all. In some cases, there are limited or no readily available satisfactory alternate providers. In any of these circumstances, we can encounter supply delays or disruptions or incur additional costs that could prevent us from meeting customer demand and/or adversely affect our business and financial results. We typically have less control over delivery schedules, design and manufacturing co-optimization, manufacturing yields, quality, product quantities, and costs for components and products that are manufactured or supplied by third parties. Delays or quality issues with one component could limit our ability to manufacture the entire completed product.
Moreover, increased regulation or stakeholder expectations regarding responsible sourcing practices could cause our compliance costs to increase, or result in publicity that negatively affects our reputation. Moreover, given that we use several materials and services and rely on several suppliers and vendors, but do not directly control the procurement or employment practices of such suppliers and vendors, we could be subject to financial or reputational risks as a result of our suppliers’ and vendors’ conduct. To the extent we
 
28

 
are unable to manage these risks, our ability to timely supply competitive solutions will be harmed, our costs will increase, and our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Increases in costs of the materials and other components that we use in our solutions would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Significant changes in the markets in which we purchase materials, components, and supplies for the production of our solutions may adversely affect our profitability. Our contractual relationship with STMicroelectronics, our sole supplier of EyeQ® SoCs, and with other suppliers, does not provide us with long-term pricing or quantity guarantees. As a result of the global semiconductor shortage and inflationary pressures, we have experienced, continue to experience, and expect to experience in 2023 increases in the cost of our EyeQ® SoCs. We are seeking to adjust the prices charged to our customers to offset these cost increases, but anticipate that, despite such price increases, our gross margin will decrease, at least in the short term, as a result of these cost increases. Competitive and market pressures limit our ability to recover increases in costs through increases in prices we charge to our customers, and, even where we are able to achieve price increases that would offset such increased costs, in some cases there may be a delay before we are able to do so. The inability to pass on price increases to our customers when raw material or component prices increase rapidly or are significantly higher than historic levels would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
In addition, the prices of our solutions depend on the bundle of applications that are included in the specific product, and our prices vary significantly across our solutions. Our solutions have different margin profiles, which vary between solutions depending on the amount, number, and type of components that we deliver. If we fail to maintain our solutions mix or maintain our gross margin and operating margin, our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Our business may suffer from claims relating to, among other things, actual or alleged defects in our solutions, or if our solutions actually or allegedly fail to perform as expected, and publicity related to these claims could harm our reputation and decrease demand for our solutions or increase regulatory scrutiny of our solutions.
Our software and hardware, including our EyeQ® SoCs, are complex and, from time to time, have had, and could have or could be alleged to have, defects in design or manufacturing, security vulnerabilities or other errors, failures, or other issues of not functioning in accordance with their specifications or as expected. Some errors or defects in our solutions have been, and could be, initially undetected and only discovered after they have been tested, commercialized, and deployed by customers. Alleged or actual defects in any of our solutions could result in adverse publicity for us, warranty claims, litigation against us, legal expenses and damages, our customers never being able to commercialize technology incorporating our solutions, negative publicity for our customers, and other consequences. Errors, defects, or security vulnerabilities could result in serious injury to or death of the end users of vehicles incorporating our solutions, or those in the surrounding area, including as a result of traffic accidents and collisions. If that is the case, we would incur significant additional development costs and product recall, repair, or replacement costs.
If any of our solutions are or are alleged to be defective, we may be required to participate in a recall involving such solutions. Each vehicle manufacturer has its own practices regarding product recalls and other product liability actions relating to its suppliers. However, as suppliers become more integrally involved in the vehicle design process, OEMs may look to their direct and indirect suppliers for contribution when faced with recalls and product liability claims. OEMs also require their suppliers to guarantee or warrant their products and bear the costs of repair and replacement of such products under new vehicle warranties. Depending on the terms under which we supply products to a Tier 1 customer or OEM, a vehicle manufacturer may attempt to hold us responsible for some or all of the repair or replacement costs of defective products under new vehicle warranties when the OEM asserts that the solution supplied did not perform as warranted. Our potential liability may increase to the extent that OEMs increasingly purchase our products directly, as opposed to incorporating our solutions through indirect purchases from our Tier 1 customers. Although we regularly evaluate the level of our reserves for warranty claims and adjust them when appropriate, final amounts determined to be due in respect of warranty claims could differ materially from our recorded estimates. Product liability, warranty, and recall costs would have an adverse effect on our business, results
 
29

 
of operations, and financial condition. In addition, product liability claims present the risk of protracted litigation, legal fees, and diversion of management’s attention from the operation of our business, even if our defense of these claims is ultimately successful.
While STMicroelectronics is responsible for quality control and procedures for testing and manufacturing our EyeQ® SoCs to our specifications, we retain liability for failure in production caused by defective EyeQ® SoC design or error. Although we use disclaimers, limitations of liability, and similar provisions in our agreements, there is no assurance that any or all of these provisions will prove to be effective barriers to product liability claims. In addition, although we are currently covered by Intel’s product liability insurance program, there is no assurance that such insurance will be adequate to cover any or all of our potential losses as a result of large deductibles and broad exclusions. Intel may also discontinue our insurance coverage, and we may be unable to find replacement insurance on acceptable terms, or at all.
Furthermore, the automotive industry in general is subject to significant litigation claims due to the potentially severe consequences of traffic collisions or other accidents. As a provider of solutions related to, among other things, preventing traffic collisions and other accidents, we could be subject to litigation for traffic collisions or other accidents, even if our solutions or their features or the failure thereof did not cause any particular traffic collision or accident. Our technology has been involved, and we expect in the future will be involved, in accidents resulting in death or personal injury, and such accidents where our solutions or their features are involved may be the subject of significant public attention. There also remains significant uncertainty in the legal implications to providers of emerging ADAS and autonomous driving technologies of traffic collisions or other accidents involving such technologies, particularly given variations in legal and regulatory regimes that are emerging in different jurisdictions, and we may become liable for losses that exceed the current industry norms as the regulatory and legal landscape develops. In addition, because ADAS and autonomous driving technologies rely on products and services provided by third parties, there is the potential that the failure of such third-party products or services that affect the performance of EyeQ® SoCs, notwithstanding the absence of any defect in design or manufacture or other failure in EyeQ® SoCs themselves, could result in additional claims being made against us.
Publicity regarding claims involving our solutions can also have an adverse effect on our reputation and the reputation for ADAS and autonomous driving solutions, which could decrease consumer demand for vehicles incorporating these technologies. Further, enhanced publicity surrounding such claims may also increase the regulatory scrutiny of our platforms, which could have a material adverse effect on our ability to complete our business plans.
We invest significant effort and money seeking OEM selection of our solutions, and there can be no assurance that these efforts will result in the selection of our solutions for use in production models. If we fail to achieve a design win after incurring substantial expenditures in these efforts, our future business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
We invest significant effort and money from the time of our initial contact with an OEM to the time when the OEM chooses our technology for ADAS or autonomous driving applications to be incorporated into one or more specific vehicle models to be produced by the OEM. This selection process is known as a “design win.” We could expend significant resources pursuing, but fail to achieve, a design win. After a design win, it is typically difficult for a product or technology that did not receive the design win to displace the winner until the OEM issues a new request for quotation because an OEM will generally not change complex technology already integrated in its systems until a vehicle model is revamped. In addition, the firm with the winning design may have an advantage with the OEM going forward because of the established relationship between the winning firm and the OEM, which would make it more difficult for that firm’s competitors to win the designs for other production models. If we fail to win a significant number of OEM design competitions in the future, then our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
There is no guarantee that our customers will purchase our solutions in any certain quantity or at any certain price even after we achieve design wins, and there may be significant delays between the time we achieve a design win until we realize revenue from the vehicle model.
We generally do not have contracts with customers that require them to purchase our solutions in any certain quantity or at any certain price, and our sales could be less than we forecast if a vehicle model for
 
30

 
which we achieved a design win is unsuccessful, including for reasons unrelated to our solutions, if an OEM decides to discontinue or reduce production of a vehicle model or of the use of our solutions in a vehicle model, or if we face downward pricing pressure. As a result, achieving design wins is not a guarantee of revenue, and our sales may not correlate with the achievement of additional design wins. Moreover, pricing estimates are made at the time of a request for quotation by an OEM, so that worsening market or other conditions between the time of a request for quotation and an order for our solutions may require us to sell our solutions for a lower price than we initially expected. Due to the recent global material shortage, we have been working with our customers to ensure they commit to certain volumes in order to secure quantities. However, we have not committed to supply such volumes and the volumes we supply will depend upon market conditions. We may also face pricing pressures from our customers as a result of their restructuring, consolidation, and cost-cutting initiatives or as a result of increased competition. As a particular solution matures and unit volumes increase, we also generally expect its average selling price (“ASP”) to decline. In addition, there are generally step-downs in pricing over periods of production as volumes ramp up. If we are unable to generate sufficient production cost savings or introduce solutions with additional features and functionality at higher price points to offset price reductions, then our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Furthermore, our solutions are technologically complex, incorporate many technological innovations, and are typically subject to significant safety testing, and OEMs generally must make significant commitments of resources to test and validate our solutions before including them in any particular vehicle model. The integration cycles of our solutions with new OEMs are approximately one to three years after a design win, depending on the OEM and the complexity of the solution. These integration cycles result in our investment of resources prior to realizing any revenue from a vehicle model. An OEM may choose to cancel production of the vehicle model for which we achieved the design win or cancel or postpone the vehicle model. Our ADAS and autonomous driving solutions control various vehicle functions including engine, transmission, safety, steering, navigation, acceleration, and braking and therefore must be integrated effectively with the other systems of the vehicle developed by the OEM, our Tier 1 customers, and other suppliers, and we may be unable to achieve the requisite level of interoperability in a vehicle model for our solutions to be implemented even after a design win.
In connection with our design wins, we typically receive preliminary estimates from OEMs of their anticipated production volumes for the models relating to those design wins, and we have included information in this prospectus relating to the aggregate vehicles represented by certain of those estimates. Those estimates may be revised significantly by the OEMs, potentially multiple times, and may not be representative of future production volumes associated with those design wins, which could be significantly higher or lower than estimated. For example, several automakers have decreased their initial 2022 vehicle production projections, and we have adjusted our forecasts accordingly. Furthermore, long development cycles or vehicle model cancellations or postponements would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. In addition, in prior periods, certain Tier 1 customers increased their orders for components and parts, including our solutions, to counteract the impact of supply chain shortages for auto parts, and we expect these Tier 1 customers will utilize accrued inventory on hand before placing new orders to meet the demand of OEMs in current or future periods. As a result, some demand for our solutions and the corresponding revenue from these customers were shifted to earlier time periods than otherwise would have occurred absent a general supply chain shortage and inflationary environment.
We depend on a limited number of Tier 1 customers and OEMs for a substantial portion of our revenue, and the loss of, or a significant reduction in sales to, one or more of our major Tier 1 customers and/or the discontinued incorporation of our solutions by one or more major OEMs in their vehicle models would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We supply OEMs with the EyeQ® platform directly or through our arrangements with automotive system integrators, known as Tier 1 automotive suppliers, which are direct suppliers to OEMs. In 2021, our three largest Tier 1 customers, who were ZF, Valeo, and Aptiv, accounted for 35%, 19%, and 17%, respectively, of our revenue. For the six months ended July 2, 2022, our three largest Tier 1 customers, who were ZF, Valeo, and Aptiv, accounted for 43%, 15%, and 15%, respectively, of our revenue. Moreover, in 2021, 14%, 12%, 12%, and 12% of our revenue was derived from the incorporation of our solutions into the vehicle models of four OEMs and a total of 78% of our revenue was derived from the incorporation of our
 
31

 
solutions into the vehicle models of eight OEMs (including those four) through our Tier 1 customers. In the six months ended July 2, 2022, 13%, 12%, 11%, and 10% of our revenue was derived from the incorporation of our solutions into the vehicle models of four OEMs and a total of 76% of our revenue was derived from the incorporation of our solutions into the vehicle models of eight OEMs (including those four) through our Tier 1 customers. We have not executed written agreements with these Tier 1 customers but rather provide our solutions to such customers pursuant to standard purchase orders under our general terms and conditions, pursuant to which they are generally not obligated to purchase our solutions in any certain quantity or at any certain price. See “— There is no guarantee that our customers will purchase our solutions in any certain quantity or at any certain price even after we achieve design wins, and there may be significant delays between the time we achieve a design win until we realize revenue from the vehicle model.” Notwithstanding the foregoing, as a result of global shortages, some of our customers, including our top three Tier 1 customers, have committed to purchasing minimum quantities of certain solutions in 2022.
We believe our business, results of operations, and financial condition for the foreseeable future will likely continue to depend on sales to a relatively small number of Tier 1 customers and the incorporation of our solutions by a relatively small number of OEMs in their vehicle models. In the future, our current Tier 1 customers may decide not to purchase our solutions, may purchase fewer of our solutions than they did in the past, or may alter their purchasing patterns, and OEMs may discontinue incorporation of our solutions in their vehicle models, including as a result of a transition to in-house solutions or solutions provided by our competitors, or their individual or aggregate production levels may decline due to a number of factors, including supply chain challenges and macroeconomic conditions. Further, the amount of revenue attributable to any single Tier 1 customer, or our Tier 1 customer concentration generally, may fluctuate in any given period. The loss of one or more key Tier 1 customers, a reduction in sales to any key Tier 1 customer, the discontinued or decreased incorporation of our solutions by a key OEM, or our inability to attract new significant Tier 1 customers and OEMs would negatively impact our revenue and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
The success of our AMaaS solutions will depend on their effective deployment and operation by third parties.
The success of our AMaaS directed solutions will depend on our customers and partners, such as fleet operators, effectively deploying and operating our solution in the future, and their failure to do so may result from factors outside our control. We are collaborating with various business-to-business and business-to-consumer channels for the purpose of deploying Mobileye Drive. As part of our business-to-business go-to-market strategy, we expect to sell and integrate Mobileye Drive to a range of shuttle network operators and vehicle OEMs that intend to operate consumer-facing AMaaS, transportation on demand, and delivery services. Our current list of publicly announced business-to-business partners is Beep, Benteler, ComfortDelgro, Lohr, Marubeni, RATP Group, Schaeffler, Udelv, and Willer. Additionally, as part of our business-to-customer go-to-market strategy, we expect to deploy Mobileye Drive-enabled AMaaS offerings by integrating them with our self-driving vehicles in partnership with fleet operators, such as SIXT. Such third parties may also terminate our partnerships with them. For example, in February 2021, we publicly announced a business-to-business partnership with Transdev to deploy autonomous shuttles, and, in June 2022, Transdev notified us that it has decided to end our joint efforts relating to the development of autonomous vehicles as a result of a change in its internal development strategy. Any failures by third parties to effectively deploy and operate our AMaaS solutions, or the termination of our relationships with any such third parties, would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Developing RoadBook depends on continued cooperation by OEMs.
The success of our Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist system requires significant amounts of fresh mapping data from series production vehicles around the world in order to develop RoadBook. We currently have agreements in place that provide OEMs with economic benefits or technological advantages to provide us with data arriving from OEM series production vehicles, but there is no guarantee that we can keep such agreements in place or that OEMs will continue to cooperate with us. If we are not able to obtain mapping data for RoadBook, our Cloud-Enhanced Driver Assist system will not perform as expected, which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

We are highly dependent on the services of Professor Amnon Shashua, our President and Chief Executive Officer.
We are highly dependent on Professor Shashua, our President and Chief Executive Officer. While Professor Shashua is highly active in our management and allocates a significant amount of time to our company, he does not devote his full time and attention to our company. For example, Professor Shashua is also the Chairman and co-founder of AI21 Labs, which works to use AI to understand and create natural language, the Co-Chairman and co-founder of OrCam, which harnesses computer vision and AI to assist the visually and hearing impaired, the Founder of One Zero Digital Bank, an entirely digital independent bank being developed in Israel, the Chairman and co-founder of Mentee Robotics, which aims to build humanoid robots, and the Sachs Chair in Computer Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he teaches and supervises graduate students. Professor Shashua may also become involved in additional ventures from time to time. The loss of Professor Shashua, or a significant diminution in his contribution to us, would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
If we are unable to attract, retain, and motivate key employees, then our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Hiring and retaining qualified executives, developers, engineers, technical staff, and sales representatives are critical to our business. The competition for highly skilled employees in our industry is increasingly intense. Competitors for technical talent increasingly seek to hire our employees. Changes in the interpretation and application of employment-related laws to our workforce practices may also result in increased operating costs and less flexibility in how we meet our changing workforce needs. To help attract, retain, and motivate qualified employees, we intend to use employee incentives such as share-based awards. Our employee hiring and retention also depend on our ability to build and maintain a diverse and inclusive workplace culture and be viewed as an employer of choice. If our share-based or other compensation programs and workplace culture cease to be viewed as competitive, our ability to attract, retain, and motivate employees would be weakened, which would harm our results of operations. Equity compensation has been, and will continue to be, an important part of our future compensation strategy and a significant component of our future expenses, which we expect to increase over time. Moreover, sustained declines in our stock price can reduce the retention value of our share-based awards. If we do not effectively hire, onboard, retain, and motivate key employees, then our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Changes in our management team can also disrupt our business. Our management and senior leadership team has significant industry experience, and their knowledge and relationships would be difficult to replace. Leadership changes may occur from time to time, and we cannot predict whether significant resignations will occur or whether we will be able to recruit qualified personnel. In addition, the relationships and reputation that members of our management and key leadership have established and maintain with our Tier 1 customers and OEMs contribute to our ability to maintain strong relationships with key partners and to identify new business opportunities.
As part of the Reorganization, we have also recruited certain employees relating to the Mobileye business from Intel. The failure to successfully transition and assimilate key employees would adversely affect our results of operations.
We face integration risks and costs associated with companies, assets, employees, products, and technologies that we have or that we may acquire, including with our acquisition of Moovit.
We have in the past and, if we are presented with appropriate opportunities, we may in the future acquire or make investments in complementary companies, assets, employees, products, and technologies. We face risks, uncertainties, and disruptions associated with the integration process of any such acquisitions or investments, including difficulties in the integration of the operations of an acquired company, integration of acquired technology with our solutions, diversion of our management’s attention from other business concerns, the potential loss of key employees or customers of the acquired business, and our inability to achieve the strategic goals of such acquisitions and investments. For example, Intel acquired Moovit in May 2020 to accelerate our MaaS offering. On May 31, 2022, we legally acquired the Moovit entities from Intel in connection with this offering, and we may be unable to successfully integrate Moovit’s
 
33

 
MaaS platform into our business and may fail to achieve the financial and strategic objectives of the acquisition of Moovit. We have also integrated a number of Intel employees to support and accelerate the development of EyeQ Kit. We may fail to make any or satisfactory returns on our acquisition of Moovit or any other investment, acquisition, or integration of employees, which could result in an impairment of goodwill and other assets and restructuring charges. Any failure to successfully integrate other companies, assets, employees, products, or technologies that we have or may acquire will adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. Furthermore, we may have to incur debt or issue equity securities to pay for any future acquisitions or investments, the issuance of which could be dilutive to our existing stockholder.
We may need to raise additional capital in the future, which may not be available on terms acceptable to us, or at all.
A majority of our operating expenses are for research and development activities. Our capital requirements will depend on many factors, including, but not limited to:

technological advancements;

market acceptance of our solutions and solution enhancements, and the overall level of sales of our solutions;

research and development expenses;

our relationships with our customers and suppliers;

our ability to control costs;

sales and marketing expenses;

enhancements to our infrastructure and systems and any capital improvements to our facilities;

potential acquisitions of businesses and product lines; and

general economic conditions, including the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, inflation, rising interest rates, and international conflicts and their impact on the automotive industry in particular.
If our capital requirements are materially different from those currently planned, we may need additional capital sooner than anticipated. If additional funds are raised through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, our stockholders may be diluted. Additional financing may not be available on favorable terms, on a timely basis, or at all. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, we may be unable to continue our operations as planned, develop or enhance our solutions, expand our sales and marketing programs, take advantage of future opportunities, or respond to competitive pressures.
We are affected by fluctuations in currency exchange rates, including those in connection with recent inflationary trends in the United States.
We are exposed to adverse as well as beneficial movements in currency exchange rates. Our functional currency is the U.S. dollar, and we incur financial expenses in connection with fluctuations in value due to foreign exchange differences between our monetary assets and liabilities denominated in New Israeli Shekels and, to a much lesser extent, the Euro, the Chinese Yuan, the Japanese Yen, and other currencies. Although most of our sales occur in U.S. dollars, and our financial results are reported in U.S. dollars, the vast majority of our payroll and other operating expenses are accrued in New Israeli Shekels. An increase in the value of the dollar will increase the real cost to our customers of our solutions in those markets outside the U.S. where we sell in dollars, and a weakened dollar will increase the cost of expenses such as payroll, utilities, tax, marketing expenses, and capital expenditures. For example, recent inflationary trends in the United States have significantly devalued the U.S. dollar with respect to the New Israeli Shekel and many other currencies, causing a significant increase to our expenses, particularly in Israel. Changes in exchange rates would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

we been a separate, stand-alone company during the years presented. Our historical financial data presented in this prospectus includes costs of our business, which may not, however, reflect the expenses we would have incurred as a stand-alone company for the years presented. Actual costs that may have been incurred if we had operated as a stand-alone company would depend on a number of factors, including the chosen organizational structure, the outsourcing of certain functions, and other strategic decisions. We have provided pro forma financial information that gives effect to the Reorganization, this offering, and the use of net proceeds from this offering and the concurrent private placement, as further described under “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information.” The pro forma financial information included in this prospectus is also not representative of our results as an independent public company. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information” and our historical combined financial statements and the accompanying notes included elsewhere in this prospectus.
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected significant portions of our business and could have a continued adverse impact on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected significant portions of our business and could have a continued adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition. Authorities have imposed, and businesses and individuals have implemented from time to time, numerous measures to try to contain the virus and its variants or treat its impact, such as travel bans and restrictions, quarantines, shelter-in-place/stay-at-home and social distancing orders, shutdowns, and vaccine requirements. These measures have impacted and may further impact our workforce and operations, the operations of our customers, and those of our and their respective suppliers and partners. We have experienced, and could in the future experience, reduced workforce availability at some of our sites, construction delays, and reduced capacity at some of our suppliers. Restrictions on our operations or workforce, or of those of our suppliers, and transportation restrictions or disruptions, can limit our ability to meet customer demand. Our customers have experienced, and may in the future experience, disruptions in their operations and supply chains, which can result in delayed, reduced, or cancelled orders or collection risks. Any such occurrences would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
The pandemic has caused us to modify our business practices, including with respect to employee travel, employee work locations, cancellation of physical participation in meetings, events, and conferences, and social distancing measures. We may take further actions to prevent infections as required by government authorities or others, or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, suppliers, and partners. Work-from-home and other measures introduce additional operational risks, including cybersecurity risks, and have affected the way we conduct development, validation, and qualification of our solutions and other activities. There is no certainty that such measures will be sufficient to mitigate the risks posed by the virus, and illness and workforce disruptions could lead to unavailability of key personnel and harm our ability to perform critical functions.
The pandemic has significantly increased economic and demand uncertainty, and has led to volatility in capital markets and credit markets. See “— General Risks — Global or regional conditions can adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.” Restrictions imposed on travel and reduced operations or closures of OEM manufacturers or dealerships that sell vehicle models that implement our solutions could result in challenges in or postponements for deployments of our new and existing solutions. Given the continued and substantial economic uncertainty and volatility created by the pandemic, it is difficult to predict the nature and extent of impacts on demand for our solutions.
The degree to which COVID-19 impacts our results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the duration and severity of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain the virus and its variants or treat their impact, other actions taken by governments, businesses, and individuals in response to the virus and resulting economic disruption, and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume. Additional impacts and risks may arise that we are not aware of or able to respond to effectively. We are similarly unable to predict the extent of the impact of the pandemic on our customers, suppliers, and other partners, but an adverse effect on these parties could also adversely affect us. The impact of COVID-19 can also exacerbate other risks discussed in this Risk Factors section and throughout this prospectus.

We are a holding company.
We are a holding company. Accordingly, our ability to conduct our operations, service any debt that we may incur, and pay dividends, if any, is dependent upon the earnings from the business conducted by our subsidiaries. The distribution of those earnings or advances or other distributions of funds by our subsidiaries to us, as well as our receipt of such funds, are contingent upon the earnings of our subsidiaries and are subject to various business considerations and applicable law, including the laws of Israel. If our subsidiaries are unable to make sufficient distributions or advances to us, or if there are limitations on our ability to receive such distributions or advances, we may not have the cash resources necessary to conduct our corporate operations, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Risks Related to Privacy, Data, and Cybersecurity
Interruptions to our information technology systems and networks and cybersecurity incidents could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We collect and maintain information in digital form that is necessary to conduct our business, and we rely on information technology systems and networks (“IT systems”) to process, transmit, and store electronic information, and to manage or support our business and consumer facing activities. Our operations routinely involve receiving, storing, processing, and transmitting confidential or sensitive information pertaining to our business, customers, suppliers, employees, and other sensitive matters, including trade secrets, other proprietary business information, and personal information. Although we have established physical, electronic, and organizational measures designed to safeguard and secure our systems to prevent a data breach or compromise, and rely on commercially available systems, software, tools, and monitoring to provide security for our IT systems and the processing, transmission, and storage of digital information, we cannot guarantee that such measures will be adequate to detect, prevent, or mitigate cyber incidents. The implementation, maintenance, segregation, and improvement of these measures requires significant management time, support, and cost. Moreover, there are inherent risks associated with developing, improving, expanding, and updating current systems, including the disruption of our data management, procurement, production execution, finance, supply chain, and sales and service processes. These risks may affect our ability to manage our data and inventory, procure parts or supplies, or produce, sell, deliver, and service our solutions, adequately protect our intellectual property, or achieve and maintain compliance with, or realize available benefits under, applicable laws, regulations, and contracts.
We cannot be sure that the IT systems upon which we rely, including those of our third-party vendors or suppliers, will be effectively implemented, maintained, or expanded as planned. While cyberattacks against our third-party vendors or suppliers have not materially adversely affected us to date, future cyberattacks on such third parties may cause significant disruptions and materially adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. In addition, despite the implementation of preventative and detective security controls, such IT systems are vulnerable to damage, shutdown, or interruption from a variety of sources, including telecommunications or network failures or interruptions, system malfunction, natural disasters, terrorism, and war. Additionally, our IT systems and products may be vulnerable to malicious acts by hackers, including through use of computer viruses, malware (including ransomware), phishing attacks, or denial of service attacks.
We regularly face attempts by others to gain unauthorized access, or to introduce malicious software, to our IT systems. Individuals or organizations, including malicious hackers, state-sponsored organizations, insider threats, including employees and third-party service providers, or intruders into our physical facilities, at times may attempt to gain unauthorized access to or corrupt our IT systems, products, or services. Due to the widespread use of our solutions, we are a target for computer hackers and organizations that intend to sabotage, take control of, or otherwise corrupt our processes, solutions, and services. We are also a target for malicious attackers who attempt to gain access to our network or data centers or those of our suppliers, customers, partners, or end users, steal proprietary information related to our business, products, employees, suppliers, and customers, interrupt our infrastructure, systems, and services or those of our suppliers, customers, or others, or demand ransom to return control of such systems and services. Such attempts are increasing in number and in technical sophistication, and if successful, expose us and the affected parties to risk of loss or misuse of confidential or other proprietary or commercially sensitive information,
 
36

 
compromise personal information regarding users or employees, disrupt our business operations, and jeopardize the security of our facilities. Our IT infrastructure also includes products and services provided by third parties, and these providers may experience breaches of their systems and products that impact the security of our systems and our proprietary or confidential information.
We have experienced data breaches, cyberattacks, attempts to breach our systems, and other similar incidents, none of which have resulted in a material adverse impact to our business or operations, but there can be no guarantee we will not experience an incident that would have such an impact. Such incidents, whether or not successful, could result in our incurring significant costs related to, for example, rebuilding internal systems, writing down inventory value, implementing additional threat protection measures, providing modifications to our solutions, defending against litigation, responding to regulatory inquiries or actions, paying damages, providing customers with incentives to maintain the business relationship, or taking other remedial steps with respect to third parties, as well as reputational harm. In addition, cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving, thereby increasing the difficulty of successfully defending against them or implementing adequate preventative measures. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work and remote access to our systems have increased significantly, which also increases our cybersecurity attack surface. There has also been an increase in cyberattack volume, frequency, and sophistication driven by the global enablement of remote workforces. We seek to detect and investigate unauthorized attempts and attacks against our network and solutions and to prevent their recurrence where practicable through changes to our internal processes and tools and changes or updates to our solutions. However, despite the implementation of preventative and detective security controls, we, and the third parties upon which we rely, remain potentially vulnerable to additional known or unknown cybersecurity threats. In some instances, we, our suppliers, our customers, and end users, can be unaware of an incident or its magnitude and effects. Even when a security breach is detected, the full extent of the breach may not be determined, and even if determined, a full investigation may require time and resources. Any actual or perceived security incident could result in, among other things, unfavorable publicity, governmental inquiry and oversight, difficulty in marketing our services, allegations by our customers that we have not performed our contractual obligations, litigation by affected parties, including our customers, and possible financial obligations for damages related to the theft or misuse of such information or inventory, any of which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Security breaches and other disruptions of our in-vehicle systems and related data could impact the safety of our end users and reduce confidence in us and our solutions.
Our ADAS and autonomous driving systems contain complex information technology. These systems may affect the control of various vehicle functions including engine, transmission, safety, steering, navigation, acceleration, and braking. We have designed, implemented, and tested security measures intended to prevent unauthorized access to these systems. However, hackers may attempt in the future to gain unauthorized access to modify, alter, and use such systems to gain control of, or to change, the functionality, user interface and performance characteristics of vehicles incorporating our solutions, or to gain access to data stored in or generated by the vehicle. In addition, as we transition to offering solutions that involve cloud-based solutions, including over-the-air updates, our solutions may increasingly be subject to cyber threats. We also transmit and store RoadBook data on the cloud with Amazon Web Services, and we depend on Amazon Web Services for securing data stored with it. Hackers may attempt to infiltrate, steal, corrupt, or manipulate such data on the cloud, which could also result in our in-vehicle systems malfunctioning. Malicious cybersecurity attacks against our in-vehicle systems that relate to automotive safety and related data, such as the data described in the preceding sentence, could potentially lead to bodily injury or death of end users, passengers, and others. Any unauthorized access to or control of vehicles incorporating our solutions or their systems could adversely impact the safety of those vehicles, or result in legal or regulatory claims or proceedings, liability, or regulatory penalties. Moreover, new laws, such as the new data law in Massachusetts that would permit third-party access to vehicle data and related systems, could expose our vehicles and vehicle systems to third-party access without appropriate security measures in place, leading to new safety and security risks, and reducing trust and confidence in our solutions. In addition, regardless of their accuracy, reports of unauthorized access to our solutions, their systems, or data, as well as other factors that may result in the perception that our solutions, their systems, or data are capable of being hacked, could harm our reputation, and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

Failures or perceived failures to comply with privacy, data protection, and information security requirements, or theft, loss, or misuse of personal information about our employees, customers, end users, or other third parties, or other information, could increase our expenses, damage our reputation, or result in legal or regulatory proceedings.
The theft, loss, or misuse of personal information collected, used, stored, or transferred by us to run our business could result in significantly increased business and security costs or costs related to defending legal claims. For example, data collected by the camera of our solutions during the development cycle of a project may include personal information such as license plate numbers of other vehicles, facial features of pedestrians, appearance of individuals, GPS data, and geolocation data. We anticipate that our collection of such personal information will increase as a result of the growth of our MaaS solutions, including our integration of Moovit, which provides us with access to personal information of its users, and it may increase as we enter into new or adjacent businesses. Notwithstanding our efforts to protect the security and integrity of our customers’ personal information, we may be required to expend significant resources to comply with data breach requirements if, for example, third parties improperly obtain and use the personal information of our customers, or we otherwise experience a data loss with respect to customers’ personal information. A major breach of our network security and systems may result in fines, penalties, and damages, harm our reputation, and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Data privacy is subject to frequently changing rules and regulations, which sometimes conflict among the various jurisdictions and countries in which we provide services. We are subject to a variety of local, state, national and international laws, directives, and regulations that apply to the collection, use, retention, protection, security, disclosure, transfer, and other processing of personal data in the different jurisdictions in which we operate (“Data Protection Laws”). Any failure by us or our vendors or other business partners to comply with our public privacy notice or with U.S. federal, state, local, Israeli, Chinese, or other foreign or international Data Protection Laws could result in regulatory or litigation-related actions against us, legal liability, fines, damages, ongoing audit requirements, and other significant costs. Global privacy legislation, enforcement, and policy activity in this area are rapidly expanding and creating a complex regulatory compliance environment. Because many Data Protection Laws are new or subject to recent revisions or updates, there is often little clarity as to their interpretation or best practices for compliance, as well as a lack of precedent for the scope of enforcement. Costs to comply with Data Protection Laws and implement related privacy and data protection measures are significant, and may require us to change our business practices and compliance manners. Any noncompliance could adversely affect our ability to collect, analyze, and store data, expose us to significant monetary penalties, damage to our reputation, result in suspension of online services or sites in certain countries, and even result in criminal sanctions. Even our inadvertent failure to comply with Data Protection Laws could result in audits, regulatory inquiries, or proceedings against us by governmental entities or other third parties. Any inability to adequately address data privacy or data protection, or other information security-related concerns, even if unfounded, to successfully negotiate privacy, data protection, or information security-related contractual terms with customers, or to comply with Data Protection Laws, could result in additional cost and liability to us, harm our reputation and brand, and could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Risks Related to our Intellectual Property Rights
We may not be able to adequately protect, defend or enforce our intellectual property rights, and our efforts to do so may be costly.
The success of our solutions and business depends in part on our ability to obtain patents and other intellectual property rights and to maintain adequate legal protection for our solutions in the United States and other international jurisdictions. If we are not able to adequately protect or enforce the proprietary aspects of our technology, competitors could be able to access our proprietary technology and our business, results of operations, and financial condition could be adversely affected. We currently attempt to protect our technology through a combination of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret laws, employee and third-party nondisclosure agreements and similar means, all of which provide only limited protection. We have filed for patent and trademark registration in the United States, Israel and in certain other international jurisdictions. However, effective intellectual property protection may be unavailable in some countries
 
38

 
where we operate or seek to enforce our intellectual property rights or more limited in foreign jurisdictions relative to those protections available in the United States, or may not be applied for in one or more relevant jurisdictions. Even if foreign patents are granted, effective enforcement in foreign countries may not be available.
Our issued patents and trademarks and any pending or future patent and trademark applications that may result in issuances or registrations may not provide sufficiently broad protection or may not prove to be enforceable in actions against alleged infringers. The patent prosecution process is expensive, time-consuming, and complex, and we may not be able to file, prosecute, maintain, enforce, or license all necessary or desirable patent applications at a reasonable cost or in a timely manner. It is also possible that we will fail to identify patentable aspects of our research and development output in time to obtain patent protection. Failure to timely seek patent protection on products or technologies generally precludes us from seeking future patent protection on these products or technologies. Even if we do timely seek patent protection, the coverage claimed in a patent application can be significantly reduced before a patent is issued, and its scope can be reinterpreted after issuance. As a result, we may not be able to protect our proprietary rights adequately in the United States, Israel or elsewhere. Failure to adequately protect our intellectual property rights could result in our competitors offering similar products or services, potentially resulting in the loss of some of our competitive advantage and a decrease in our revenue, which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Despite our efforts, unauthorized parties may attempt to copy, reverse engineer, disclose, obtain, or use our technologies or systems. Our competitors may also be able to independently develop similar products or services that are competitive to ours or design around our issued patents. If third parties obtain patent protection with respect to such technologies, they may assert that our technology infringes their patents and seek to charge us a licensing fee or otherwise preclude or make costlier the use of our technology. Litigation may be necessary in the future to enforce or defend our intellectual property rights, to prevent unauthorized parties from copying or reverse engineering our solutions, to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others or to block the importation of infringing products into the United States or other countries. We have been, and in the future may be, a party to claims and litigation as a result of alleged infringement by third parties of our intellectual property. Even when we sue other parties for such infringement, that suit may have adverse consequences for our business. Any such suit is likely to be time-consuming and expensive to resolve and may divert our management’s time and attention from our business, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition, and legal fees related to such litigation will increase our operating expenses and may reduce our net income. Any claims we assert against perceived infringers could provoke these parties to assert counterclaims against us, alleging that we infringe their intellectual property or alleging that our intellectual property is invalid or unenforceable. Furthermore, any litigation initiated by us could result in a court or governmental agency invalidating or rendering unenforceable our patents or other intellectual property rights upon which the suit is based, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
In addition, we depend on licenses for certain technologies from third parties and, as a result, are dependent on these third parties to protect, defend and enforce the intellectual property rights related to those technologies. This includes an agreement with Intel in which Intel grants to us a royalty-free, nonexclusive, nontransferable, and worldwide license, sublicense, or other right, as applicable, under certain patents and patent applications of other Intel subsidiaries and certain third parties, and further includes agreements we plan to enter into with Intel in connection with this offering in which we will be granted limited licenses from Intel for sensitive core technology relating to lidar and radar. See “— We depend on licenses for certain technologies from third parties, some of which require us to pay royalties, and our inability to use such technologies in the future would harm our ability to remain competitive” and “Risks Related to Our Relationship with Intel and Our Dual Class Structure — We may have conflicts of interest with Intel and, because of (i) certain provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation relating to related person transactions and corporate opportunities, (ii) agreements we have and will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, and (iii) Intel’s controlling beneficial ownership interest in our company, we may not be able to resolve such conflicts on terms favorable to us.”
 
39

 
We have previously faced claims and may in the future become subject to additional claims and litigation brought by third parties alleging infringement by us of their intellectual property rights.
The industry in which our business operates is characterized by a large number of patents, some of which may be of questionable scope, validity, or enforceability, and some of which may appear to overlap with other issued patents. As a result, there is a significant amount of uncertainty in the industry regarding patent protection and infringement. In addition to these patents, participants in this industry typically also protect their technology, especially embedded software, through copyrights and trade secrets. In recent years, there has been significant litigation globally involving patents and other intellectual property rights.
We have previously faced claims and may in the future be subject to additional claims and litigation alleging our infringement, misappropriation or other violation of third-party patent rights, trade secret rights or other intellectual property rights, particularly as a public company with an increased profile and visibility, and as we expand our presence in the market and to new use cases and face increasing competition. In addition, in the event that we recruit employees from other technology companies, including certain potential competitors, and these employees are used in the development of solutions that are similar to the solutions they were involved in developing for their former employers, we may become subject to claims that such employees have improperly used or disclosed trade secrets or other proprietary information. We may also in the future be subject to claims by our suppliers, employees, consultants, or contractors asserting an ownership right in our patents or patent applications, as a result of the work they performed on our behalf. These claims and any resulting lawsuits, if resolved adversely to us, could subject us to significant liability for damages, impose temporary or permanent injunctions against our solutions or business operations or invalidate or render unenforceable our intellectual property. In addition, because patent applications can take many years until the patents issue, there may be applications now pending of which we are unaware, which may later result in issued patents that our solutions may infringe. If any of our solutions infringe a third party’s patent rights, or if we wish to avoid potential intellectual property litigation on any alleged infringement relating to our solutions, we could be prevented from selling, or we could elect not to sell, such solutions unless we obtain additional intellectual property rights and licenses, which may involve substantial royalty or other payments and may not be available on acceptable terms or at all. Alternatively, we could be forced to redesign one or more of our solutions to avoid any infringement or allegations thereof. Procuring or developing substitute solutions that do not infringe could require significant effort and expense, and we may not be successful in any attempt to redesign our solutions to avoid any alleged infringement.
A successful claim of infringement against us, or our failure or inability to develop and implement non-infringing technology, or license the infringed intellectual property rights, on acceptable terms and on a timely basis, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations. A party making such a claim, if successful, could secure a judgment that requires us to pay substantial damages or obtain an injunction. An adverse determination also could invalidate our intellectual property rights and adversely affect our ability to offer our solutions to our customers. Additionally, we may face liability to our customers, business partners or third parties for indemnification or other remedies in the event that they are sued for infringement in connection with their use of our solutions. We currently have a number of agreements in effect pursuant to which we have agreed to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless our customers, suppliers and other business partners from damages and costs which may arise from the infringement by our solutions of third-party patents or other intellectual property rights. The scope of these indemnity obligations varies, but may, in some instances, include indemnification for damages and expenses, including attorneys’ fees. Furthermore, our defense of intellectual property rights claims brought against us or our customers, business partners or other related third parties, regardless of our success, would likely be time-consuming and expensive to resolve and would divert management’s time and attention from our business, which could seriously harm our business. A claim that our solutions infringe a third party’s intellectual property rights, even if untrue, could adversely affect our relationships with our customers or suppliers, may deter future customers from purchasing our solutions and could seriously harm our reputation with our customers or suppliers, as well as our reputation in the industry at large.
We depend on licenses for certain technologies from third parties, some of which require us to pay royalties, and our inability to use such technologies in the future would harm our ability to remain competitive.
We integrate certain technologies developed and owned by third parties into our solutions, including the central processing unit cores of our EyeQ® SoCs, through license and technology transfer agreements.
 
40

 
Under these agreements, we are obligated to pay royalties for each unit of our solutions that we sell that incorporates such third-party technology. If we are unable to maintain our contractual relationships with the third-party licensors on which we depend, then we may not be able to find replacement technology to integrate into our solutions on a timely basis or for a similar royalty fee, in which case our business, results of operations, and financial condition would also be adversely affected.
We also are party to an agreement with Intel in which (i) we grant to Intel a royalty-free, nonexclusive, nontransferable, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable under certain circumstances, and worldwide license under patents and patent applications owned or controlled by us, and (ii) Intel grants to us a royalty-free, nonexclusive, nontransferable, and worldwide license, sublicense, or other right, as applicable, under certain patents and patent applications of other Intel subsidiaries and certain third parties, and we further plan to enter into agreements with Intel in connection with this offering in which we will have a limited license from Intel for sensitive core technology relating to lidar and radar. See “— Risks Related to Our Relationship with Intel and Our Dual Class Structure — We may have conflicts of interest with Intel and, because of (i) certain provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation relating to related person transactions and corporate opportunities, (ii) agreements we have and will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, and (iii) Intel’s controlling beneficial ownership interest in our company, we may not be able to resolve such conflicts on terms favorable to us.”
If we are unable to continue to use or license these technologies on reasonable terms, or if these technologies fail to operate properly, we may not be able to secure alternatives in a timely manner or at all, and our ability to remain competitive would be harmed. In addition, if we are unable to successfully license technology from third parties to develop future solutions, we may not be able to develop such solutions in a timely manner or at all. The operation or security of our solutions could be impaired if errors or other defects occur in the third-party technologies we use, and it may be more difficult for us to correct any such errors and defects in a timely manner, if at all, because the development and maintenance of these technologies is not within our control. Any impairment of the technologies or of our relationship with these third parties would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We may become subject to claims for remuneration or royalties for assigned service invention rights by our employees that result in litigation, which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
A significant portion of our intellectual property has been developed by our employees in the course of their employment for us. Under the Israeli Patent Law, 5727-1967 (the “Patent Law”), inventions conceived by an employee in the course and as a result of his or her employment with a company are regarded as “service inventions” that belong to the employer, absent a specific agreement between the employee and employer providing otherwise. The Patent Law also provides that, in the absence of an agreement to the contrary between an employer and an employee, the Israeli Compensation and Royalties Committee (the “Committee”), a body constituted under the Patent Law, will determine whether the employee is entitled to remuneration for his or her inventions. Further, the Committee has not yet determined one specific formula for calculating this remuneration but rather uses the criteria specified in the Patent Law. Although we enter into assignment-of-invention agreements with our employees and service providers pursuant to which such individuals waive their right to remuneration for service inventions, we may face claims demanding remuneration in consideration for assigned inventions. As a consequence of such claims, we could be required to pay additional remuneration or royalties to our current and/or former employees and service providers, or be forced to litigate such claims, which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
In addition to patented technology, we rely on our unpatented proprietary technology, trade secrets, processes, and know-how.
We rely on proprietary information (such as trade secrets, know-how, and confidential information) to protect intellectual property that may not be patentable and may not be subject to copyright, trademark, trade dress or service mark protection, or that we believe is best protected by means that do not require public disclosure. Such proprietary information may be owned by us or disclosed to us by our licensors, suppliers or other third parties. We generally seek to protect this proprietary information by entering into confidentiality
 
41

 
agreements, or consulting, services or employment agreements that contain non-disclosure and non-use provisions with our employees, consultants, contractors, scientific advisors and other third parties. However, we may fail to enter into the necessary agreements, and even if entered into, these agreements may be breached or may otherwise fail to prevent disclosure, third-party infringement, or misappropriation of our proprietary information, may be limited as to their term, and may not provide an adequate remedy in the event of unauthorized disclosure or use of proprietary information. We have limited control over the protection of trade secrets used by our third-party manufacturers and suppliers and could lose future trade secret protection if any unauthorized disclosure of such information occurs. In addition, our proprietary information may otherwise become known or be independently developed by our competitors or other third parties. To the extent that our employees, consultants, contractors, scientific advisors and other third parties use intellectual property owned by others in their work for us, disputes may arise as to the rights in or to related or resulting know-how and inventions. Costly and time-consuming litigation could be necessary to enforce and determine the scope of our proprietary rights, and failure to obtain or maintain protection for our proprietary information could adversely affect our competitive business position. Furthermore, laws regarding trade secret rights in certain markets where we operate may afford little or no protection to our trade secrets.
We also rely on physical and electronic security measures to protect our proprietary information, but we cannot provide assurance that these security measures will not be breached or provide adequate protection for our property. There is a risk that third parties may obtain and improperly utilize our proprietary information to our competitive disadvantage. We may not be able to detect or prevent the unauthorized use of such information or take appropriate and timely steps to protect and enforce our intellectual property rights. The theft or unauthorized use or publication of our trade secrets and other confidential business information as a result of such an incident would affect our competitive position and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We use certain software and data governed by open-source licenses, which under certain circumstances could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Certain of our software and data, as well as that of our customers and vendors, may be derived from or otherwise incorporate so-called “open source” software and data that is generally made available to the public by its authors and/or other third parties. Some open-source software is made available under licenses that impose certain obligations on us regarding modifications or derivative works we create based upon the open-source software. These obligations may require us to make source code for the derivative works available to the public and/or license such derivative works under a particular type of license, rather than the forms of license we customarily use to protect our intellectual property. Additionally, if we combine our proprietary software with open-source software in certain manners we could be required to release the source code of our proprietary software or to make our proprietary software available under open-source licenses to third parties at little or no cost or on unfavorable license terms. In the event that the copyright holder of, or other third party that distributes, open-source software alleges that we have not complied with the terms of an open-source license, we could incur significant legal costs defending ourselves against such allegations. If such claims are successful, we could be subject to significant damages, required to release the source code that we developed using that open-source software to the public, enjoined from distributing our software and/or required to take other actions that could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
While we take steps to monitor the use of open-source software in our solutions, processes and technology and try to ensure that no open-source software is used in such a way as to require us to disclose the source code to the related product, processes, or technology when we do not wish to do so, such use could inadvertently occur. Additionally, if a third-party software provider has incorporated certain types of open source software into software we license from such third party for our solutions, processes, or technology, we could, under certain circumstances, be required to disclose the source code to our solutions, processes, or technology. This could harm our intellectual property position and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Further, the use of open-source software can lead to vulnerabilities that may make our software susceptible to attack, and although some open-source vendors provide warranty and support agreements, it

is common for such software to be available “as is” with no warranty, indemnity, or support. Although we monitor our use of such open-source code to avoid subjecting our solutions to unintended conditions, such use, under certain circumstances, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and operating results and cash flow, including if we are required to take remedial action that may divert resources away from our development efforts.
Risks Related to Our Industry
The current uncertain economic environment and inflationary conditions may adversely affect global vehicle production and demand for our solutions.
Our business depends on, and is directly affected by, the global automobile industry. Economic conditions in North America, Europe and Asia can have a large impact on the production volume of new vehicles, and, accordingly, have an impact on our revenue. Automotive production and sales are highly cyclical and depend on general economic conditions and other factors, including consumer spending and preferences, changes in interest rate levels and credit availability, consumer confidence and purchasing power, energy and fuel costs, fuel availability, environmental impact, governmental incentives, regulatory requirements, and political volatility, especially in energy-producing countries and growth markets. In addition, automotive production and sales can be affected by our customers’ ability to continue operating in response to challenging economic conditions, such as those caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and in response to labor relations issues and shortages, supply chain disruptions, regulatory requirements, trade agreements and other factors. For example, while the global vehicle industry shows recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, with approximately 3% growth year over year in 2021, production in 2021 was still approximately 13% below the 2019 level. Moreover, automakers continue to face supply chain shortages, and we expect that global vehicle production will not fully recover from the impact of supply chain constraints in 2022 and 2023. Furthermore, current uncertain economic conditions and inflation may contribute to a reduction in consumer demand, which may reduce vehicle production over at least the next several quarters. In addition to these general economic factors, uncertainties in specific markets may further contribute to lower vehicle production. For example, the disruption by Russia of gas supplies to Western Europe could significantly impact industrial production, including vehicle production, in significant markets such as Germany. We cannot predict when the impact of these factors on global vehicle production will substantially diminish. We believe that the expected continued constraint on global automotive production resulting from supply chain shortages and the effect of economic uncertainty will limit our ability to increase our revenue. More generally, the volume of automotive production in North America, Europe, China, and the rest of the world has fluctuated, sometimes significantly, from year to year, for many reasons, and such fluctuations give rise to fluctuations in the demand for our solutions. As a result, in addition to the impact of the current uncertainties that we anticipate to impact automotive production in the near term, adverse changes in economic or market conditions or other factors, including, but not limited to, general economic conditions, the bankruptcy of any of our customers or the closure of OEM manufacturing facilities may result in a reduction in automotive sales and production, and could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
If OEMs are unable to maintain and increase consumer acceptance of ADAS and autonomous driving technology, our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Our future operating results will depend on the ability of OEMs to maintain and increase consumer acceptance of ADAS and autonomous driving. There is no assurance that OEMs can achieve these objectives. Market acceptance of ADAS and autonomous driving depends upon many factors, including regulatory requirements, evolving safety standards, costs, and driver preferences. Market acceptance of ADAS and autonomous driving may also be adversely affected by safety incidents involving ADAS and autonomous driving solutions, even if the incidents do not involve our solutions. We cannot be sure that ADAS and autonomous driving will achieve market acceptance on a timeline that is consistent with our expectations or development and production plans. Market acceptance of our solutions also depends on the ability of market participants, including Mobileye, to resolve technical challenges for increasingly complex ADAS and autonomous driving technology in a timely and cost-effective manner. Consumers will also need to be made aware of the advantages of our solutions, such as the advantages of our offerings compared to competing technologies, specifically those that rely solely on either cameras or lidar and radar. If consumer

acceptance of ADAS and autonomous driving technology does not increase, our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
We operate in an industry that is new and rapidly evolving, and the estimates and forecasts of TAM and SAM included in this prospectus are subject to significant uncertainty.
We are pursuing opportunities in markets that are undergoing rapid changes, including technological and regulatory changes, and it is difficult to predict the timing and size of the opportunities. For example, ADAS and autonomous driving applications require complex technology and are subject to uncertainties with respect to, among other things, the rate of consumer acceptance and the impact of current or future regulations. Because these automotive systems depend on technology from many companies, commercialization of some ADAS or autonomous driving solutions could be delayed or impaired on account of certain technological components of our or others not being ready to be deployed in vehicles. Regulatory, safety or reliability developments, many of which are outside of our control, could also cause delays or otherwise impair commercial adoption of these new technologies, which will adversely affect our growth.
This prospectus contains estimates and forecasts concerning our industry, including estimates of the TAM and serviceable addressable market (“SAM”) of our current and anticipated future solutions, that are based on industry publications and reports or other publicly available information as well as our internal estimates and expectations. These estimates and forecasts involve a number of assumptions and limitations, and are subject to significant uncertainty, and you are cautioned not to give them undue weight. Industry surveys and publications generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, but there can be no assurance as to the accuracy and completeness of the included information. We have not independently verified this third-party information. Similarly, our internal estimates and forecasts are based on a variety of assumptions, including assumptions regarding market acceptance of autonomous driving and ADAS and the manner in which this new and rapidly evolving market will develop. While we believe our assumptions and the data underlying our estimates and forecasts are reasonable, these assumptions and estimates may not be correct and the conditions supporting our assumptions or estimates may change at any time, thereby reducing the predictive accuracy of these underlying factors. As a result, our estimates and forecasts may prove to be incorrect. If third-party or internally generated data prove to be inaccurate or we make errors in our assumptions based on that data, the TAM and SAM for our solutions may be smaller than we have estimated, our future growth opportunities and sales growth may be smaller than we estimate, and our future business, results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected.
Our future financial performance will depend on our ability to make timely investments in the correct market opportunities. If one or more of these markets experience a shift in customer or prospective customer demand, then our solutions may not compete as effectively, if at all, and they may not be incorporated into commercialized end customer products. Given the evolving nature of the markets in which we operate, it is difficult to predict customer demand or adoption rates for our solutions or the future growth of the markets in which we operate. Even if the market for ADAS and autonomous driving solutions grows substantially, there is no guarantee that demand for our solutions will correlate with that growth if we fail to effectively pursue such opportunities. There is also no guarantee that our business will be successful simply because of the future TAM or SAM of our solutions, or because of the trends of the TAM and SAM of our solutions. If demand does not develop or if we cannot accurately forecast customer demand, then the size of our markets, inventory requirements or our future business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
Regulatory and Compliance Risks
We are subject to a variety of laws and regulations that affect our operations and that could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We are subject to laws and regulations worldwide that affect our operations and that differ among jurisdictions, including automotive safety regulations, regulations governing autonomous driving technology,
 
44

 
intellectual property ownership and infringement laws, tax laws, import and export regulations, anti-corruption laws, foreign exchange controls and cash repatriation restrictions, data privacy laws, competition laws, advertising regulations, employment laws, product regulations, environmental laws, health and safety requirements, consumer laws and national security laws. Compliance with such requirements can be onerous and expensive, and may otherwise adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Although we have policies, controls, and procedures designed to help ensure compliance with applicable laws, there can be no assurance that our employees, contractors, suppliers, or agents will not violate such laws or our policies. There may also be laws and regulations that limit the functionality of our solutions or require us to adapt our solutions to retain functionality. For example, the regulatory environment in China creates challenges for the proliferation of our solutions in that market. Due to regulations there, we also depend on our partners in China in order to collect, analyze and transmit data, and such partners may choose to cease, or be unable to, continue cooperating with us. Other countries have, or may implement, similar restrictions. Violations of these laws and regulations can result in fines, criminal sanctions against us, our officers, or our employees, prohibitions on the conduct of our business and damage to our reputation. The automotive and technology industries are subject to intense media, political, and regulatory scrutiny, which can increase our exposure to government investigations, legal actions, and penalties.
Our business, results of operations, and financial condition may be adversely affected by changes in automotive safety regulations or concerns that drive regulations that increase our costs or delay or halt adoption of our solutions.
There are a variety of international, foreign, federal, and state regulations that apply to vehicle safety that could affect the marketability of our solutions. Regulations relating to autonomous driving include many existing vehicle standards that were not originally intended to apply to vehicles that may not have a human driver, and autonomous driving may never be globally approved. The expected launch of our AMaaS solutions in many jurisdictions remains subject to regulatory review and approvals, and the regulatory standards relating to AMaaS are still developing and remain subject to substantial uncertainty. There has been relatively little mandatory government regulation of the self-driving industry to date. Currently, there are no Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards that relate to the performance of self-driving technology and no widely accepted uniform standards to certify self-driving technology and its commercial use on public roads. It is also possible that future self-driving regulations are not standardized, and our technology could become subject to differing regulations across jurisdictions. For example, in Europe, certain vehicle safety regulations apply to automated braking and steering systems, and certain treaties also restrict the legality of certain higher levels of automation, while certain U.S. states have legal restrictions on automation that many other states are also considering. Such regulations continue to rapidly change, which increases the likelihood of varying complex or conflicting regulations or may limit global adoption, impede our strategy, or negatively impact our long-term expectations for our investments in these areas.
Government safety regulations are subject to change based on a number of factors that are not within our control, including new scientific or technological data, adverse publicity regarding the industry, recalls, concerns regarding safety risks of autonomous driving and ADAS, accidents involving our solutions or those of our competitors, domestic and foreign political developments or considerations and litigation relating to our solutions and our competitors’ products. Changes in government regulations, especially those relating to ADAS and autonomous driving, could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Regulations governing the automotive industry impose stringent compliance and reporting requirements in response to product recalls and safety issues in the automotive industry, including a duty to report, subject to strict timing requirements, safety defects with, or reports of injuries relating to, our solutions and requirements that a manufacturer recall and repair vehicles that contain safety defects or fail to comply with applicable safety standards. If we do not rapidly address any safety concerns or defects involving our solutions, our business, results of operations, and financial condition would be adversely affected.
We are subject to risks related to trade policies, sanctions, and import and export controls.
Trade policies and international disputes at times result in increased tariffs, trade barriers and other restrictions, which can increase our manufacturing costs, make our solutions less competitive, reduce demand
 
45

 
for our solutions, limit our ability to sell to certain customers, limit our ability to procure components or raw materials or impede or slow the movement of our goods across borders. Increasing protectionism and economic nationalism may lead to further changes in trade policies and regulations, domestic sourcing initiatives, or other formal and informal measures.
Likewise, national security and foreign policy concerns may prompt governments to impose trade or other restrictions, which could make it more difficult to sell our solutions in, or restrict our access to, certain markets. In this regard, our business activities are subject to various trade and economic sanctions laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control’s sanctions programs and the Export Administration Regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce. These rules may prohibit or restrict our ability to, directly or indirectly, conduct activities or dealings in or with certain countries or involving certain persons, or otherwise affect our business. New measures imposed by the United States, the European Union, or others could restrict certain of our operations and adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. Although we take steps to comply with applicable laws and regulations, our failure to successfully comply with applicable sanctions or export control rules may expose us to negative legal and business consequences, including civil or criminal penalties and government investigations.
In particular, in response to Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine, the United States, the European Union, and several other countries are imposing far-reaching sanctions and export control restrictions on Russian entities and individuals. See “— The current conflict between Ukraine and Russia has exacerbated market instability and disrupted the global economy.”
Additionally, tensions between the United States and China have led to increased tariffs and trade restrictions, including tariffs applicable to some of our solutions, and have affected customer ordering patterns. In addition to imposing economic sanctions on certain Chinese individuals and entities, the United States has imposed restrictions on the export of U.S.-regulated products and technology to certain Chinese technology companies, including certain of our customers. For example, the United States recently enacted controls on certain transactions involving items for semiconductor manufacturing end uses and advanced computing integrated circuits destined for China. Although we do not believe that these recent controls will materially impede our ability to conduct our business, there can be no assurance that these or future restrictions would not materially adversely affect our financial performance. For example, we derive significant revenue from China. In 2021 and in the six months ended July 2, 2022, we derived approximately 19% and 27%, respectively, of our revenue from shipments of products to China. It is difficult to predict what further trade-related actions governments may take, which may include trade restrictions and additional or increased tariffs and export controls imposed on short notice, and we may be unable to quickly and effectively react to or mitigate such actions.
Trade disputes and protectionist measures, or continued uncertainty about such matters, could result in declining consumer confidence and slowing economic growth or recession, and could cause our customers to reduce, cancel, or alter the timing of their purchases with us. Sustained geopolitical tensions could lead to long-term changes in global trade and technology supply chains, and decoupling of global trade networks, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Given our international supply chain and distribution, we are subject to import and export laws of multiple countries. Failure to comply with the requirements of such laws may lead to the imposition of additional taxes or duties on imports or exports, fines, or penalties. For example, Israeli customs authorities are conducting an inquiry into certain imports by one of our subsidiaries into Israel. We have been cooperating with the customs authorities and, while no allegations or demands have been made to date related to this inquiry, no assurance can be given as to whether any allegations or demands will be made in the future in this regard. Although based on information currently available to us we do not expect this inquiry or its outcome to materially adversely affect our business, results of operations, or financial condition, future inquires or investigations and their outcomes relating to, or changes in, import or export laws could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
The current conflict between Ukraine and Russia has exacerbated market instability and disrupted the global economy.
The current conflict between Ukraine and Russia has caused uncertainty about economic and political stability, increasing volatility in the credit and financial markets and disrupting the global economy. The
 
46

 
United States, the European Union, and several other countries are imposing far-reaching sanctions and export control restrictions on Russian entities and individuals. These measures could constrain our ability to work with Russian companies or individuals in connection with the development of our solutions in the future. These sanctions and export controls may also contribute to higher oil and gas prices and inflation, which could reduce demand in the global automotive sector and therefore reduce demand for our solutions. There is also a risk that Russia, as a retaliatory action to sanctions, may launch cyberattacks against the United States, the European Union, or other countries or their infrastructures and businesses. Additional consequences of the conflict may include diminished liquidity and credit availability, declines in consumer confidence, declines in economic growth, and various shortages and supply chain disruptions. While we do not currently directly rely on goods or services sourced in Russia or Ukraine and thus have not experienced any direct disruptions, we may experience indirect disruptions in our supply chain. Any of the foregoing factors, including developments or effects that we cannot yet predict, may adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Risks Related to Operations in Israel
Conditions in Israel affect our operations and may limit our ability to produce and sell our solutions.
Although we are incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware, our headquarters and research and development center are located in the State of Israel, and as of July 2, 2022, substantially all of our equipment and long-lived assets were located in Israel. Many of our employees, including certain members of our management, operate from our offices that are located in Jerusalem, Israel. In addition, a number of our officers and directors are residents of Israel. Accordingly, political, economic, and military conditions in Israel and the surrounding region may directly affect our business and operations. In recent years, Israel has been engaged in sporadic armed conflicts with Hamas, an Islamist terrorist group that controls the Gaza Strip, with Hezbollah, an Islamist terrorist group that controls large portions of southern Lebanon, and with Iranian-backed military forces in Syria. In addition, Iran has threatened to attack Israel and may be developing nuclear weapons. Some of these hostilities were accompanied by missiles being fired from the Gaza Strip against civilian targets in various parts of Israel, including areas in which our employees are located, and negatively affected business conditions in Israel. Any hostilities involving Israel, regional geopolitical instability or the interruption or curtailment of trade between Israel and its trading partners as a result thereof could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Our commercial insurance does not cover losses that may occur as a result of events associated with war and terrorism. Although the Israeli government currently covers the reinstatement value of certain direct damages that are caused by terrorist attacks or acts of war, such coverage would likely be limited, may not be applicable to our business and may not reinstate our loss of revenue or economic losses more generally. Furthermore, we cannot assure you that this government coverage will be maintained or that it will sufficiently cover our potential damages. Any losses or damages incurred by us could have a material adverse effect on our business. Any armed conflicts or political instability in the region would likely negatively affect business conditions and could harm our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Further, in the past, the State of Israel and Israeli companies have been subjected to economic boycotts. Several countries still restrict doing business with the State of Israel and with Israeli companies. These restrictive laws and policies may have an adverse impact on our operating results, financial condition, or the expansion of our business. A campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions has been undertaken against Israel, which could also adversely impact our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Our operations may be disrupted by the obligations of personnel to perform military service.
Some of our employees in Israel are obligated to perform annual reserve duty in the Israeli military for several days, and in some cases more, of annual military reserve duty each year until they reach the age of 40 (or older, for reservists who are military officers or who have certain occupations) and are subject to being called for additional active duty under emergency circumstances. In response to increased tension and hostilities, there have been occasional call-ups of military reservists, and it is possible that there will be additional call-ups in the future. We cannot predict the full impact of these conditions on us in the future, particularly if emergency circumstances or an escalation in the political situation occurs. If many of our
 
47

 
employees are called for active duty, our operations in Israel and our business may not be able to function at full capacity, and our business, results of operations, and financial condition could be adversely affected.
The tax benefits that are available to us under Israeli law require us to meet various conditions and may be terminated or reduced in the future, which could increase our costs and taxes.
We believe that our Israeli subsidiary is eligible for certain tax benefits provided to a “Special Preferred Technology Enterprise” under the Israeli Law for the Encouragement of Capital Investments, 1959, and its regulations, as amended (the “Investment Law”), including, inter alia, a reduced corporate tax rate of 6% on Israeli preferred technology taxable income, as defined in the Investment Law. In order to remain eligible for the tax benefits for a Special Preferred Technology Enterprise, our Israeli subsidiary must continue to meet certain conditions stipulated in the Investment Law and its regulations, as amended. For example, a Special Preferred Technology Enterprise must be part of a group of companies with aggregate annual revenue of at least 10 billion New Israeli Shekels. If Intel does not maintain sufficient holdings in us so that we are a consolidated group with Intel, and if we do not otherwise meet the revenue requirement as a standalone company, we would no longer meet the consolidated group income requirement to maintain our status as a Special Preferred Technology Enterprise and would instead be considered a Preferred Technology Enterprise, resulting in a higher effective corporate tax rate in Israel. If we fail to meet certain additional conditions stipulated in the Investment Law, including a minimal amount or ratio of annual research and development expenditures and research and development employees, as well as having at least 25% of our annual income derived from exports, we would also lose our status as a Preferred Technology Enterprise, resulting in an even higher effective corporate tax rate in Israel. Additionally, if our Israeli subsidiary increases its activities outside of Israel through acquisitions, then its expanded activities might not be eligible for inclusion in future Israeli tax benefit programs.
It may be difficult to enforce a U.S. judgment against our officers and directors named in this prospectus, or to assert U.S. securities laws claims in Israel or serve process on our non-U.S. officers and directors.
Not all of our directors or officers are residents of the United States, and most of their and our assets are located outside the United States. Service of process upon our non-U.S. resident directors and officers and enforcement of judgments obtained in the United States against us or our non-U.S. our directors and officers may be difficult to obtain within the United States. Additionally, we have been informed by our legal counsel in Israel that it may be difficult to assert claims under U.S. securities laws in original actions instituted in Israel or obtain a judgment based on the civil liability provisions of U.S. federal securities laws. Israeli courts may refuse to hear a claim based on a violation of U.S. securities laws against us or our non-U.S. officers and directors because Israel may not be the most appropriate forum to bring such a claim. In addition, even if an Israeli court agrees to hear a claim, it may determine that Israeli law and not U.S. law is applicable to the claim. If U.S. law is found to be applicable, then the content of applicable U.S. law must be proved as a fact, which can be a time-consuming and costly process. Certain matters of procedure will also be governed by Israeli law. There is little binding case law in Israel addressing the matters described above. Additionally, Israeli courts might not enforce judgments rendered outside Israel, which may make it difficult to collect on judgments rendered against us or our non-U.S. officers and directors.
Moreover, an Israeli court will not enforce a non-Israeli judgment if it was given in a state whose laws do not provide for the enforcement of judgments of Israeli courts (subject to exceptional cases), if its enforcement is likely to prejudice the sovereignty or security of the State of Israel, if it was obtained by fraud or in the absence of due process, if it is at variance with another valid judgment that was given in the same matter between the same parties, or if a suit in the same matter between the same parties was pending before a court or tribunal in Israel at the time the foreign action was brought.
Risks Related to our Relationship with Intel and our Dual Class Structure
The dual class structure of our common stock will have the effect of concentrating voting control with Intel, and Intel will beneficially own shares of our Class B common stock, representing a majority of the shares of our common stock and approximately 99.4% of the voting power of our outstanding capital stock immediately following this offering and the concurrent private placement. This will limit or preclude your ability to influence corporate matters.
Our Class B common stock will have ten votes per share, and our Class A common stock, which is the stock we are offering in this offering and the concurrent private placement, will have one vote per share.
 
48

 
Because of the 10-to-1 voting ratio between our Class B common stock and our Class A common stock, immediately following the offering, Intel, which will be the beneficial holder of 750,000,000 shares of Class B common stock, will beneficially own approximately 99.4% of the voting power of our outstanding capital stock, assuming no exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock (or 99.3% assuming full exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock). Because Intel will beneficially hold significantly more than a majority of the combined voting power of our capital stock upon the completion of this offering and the concurrent private placement, it will be able to control all matters submitted to our stockholders for approval.
As a result, for the foreseeable future, Intel will have significant influence over the management and affairs of our company and over the outcome of all matters submitted to our stockholders for approval, including the election of directors and significant corporate transactions, such as a merger, consolidation, or sale of substantially all of our assets, even if its stock holdings will be significantly diluted to represent less than 50% of the outstanding shares of our common stock. In addition, this may prevent or discourage unsolicited acquisition proposals or offers for our common stock that you may feel are in your best interest as one of our stockholders. Intel may have interests that differ from yours and may vote in a way with which you disagree, and which may be adverse to your interests. This control may adversely affect the trading price of our Class A common stock. See “Description of Capital Stock.”
We expect to be a “controlled company” within the meaning of the corporate governance standards of Nasdaq. As a result, we will qualify for, and intend to rely on, exemptions from certain corporate governance standards. You will not have the same protections afforded to stockholders of companies that are subject to all corporate governance requirements of Nasdaq.
So long as more than 50% of the voting power for the election of our directors is held by an individual, a group or another company, we will qualify as a “controlled company” under listing requirements of Nasdaq. After the completion of this offering and the concurrent private placement, Intel will continue to beneficially hold a majority of the voting power of our outstanding common stock. As a result, we are a “controlled company” under the Nasdaq rules. As a controlled company, we are exempt from certain Nasdaq corporate governance requirements, and we currently intend to rely on such exemptions, including those that would otherwise require our Board of Directors to have a majority of independent directors and require that we establish a compensation committee and nominating committee comprised entirely of independent directors, or otherwise ensure that the compensation of our executive officers and nominees for directors are determined or recommended to our Board of Directors by the independent members of our Board. To the extent we continue to rely on one or more of these exemptions, holders of our Class A common stock will not have the same protections afforded to stockholders of companies that are subject to all of the corporate governance requirements of Nasdaq.
Our dual class structure may depress the trading price of our Class A common stock.
We cannot predict whether our dual class structure will result in a lower or more volatile market price of our Class A common stock or in adverse publicity or other adverse consequences. For example, certain index providers have announced restrictions on including companies with multiple-class share structures in certain of their indexes. S&P Dow Jones and FTSE Russell have announced changes to their eligibility criteria for inclusion of shares of public companies on certain indices, including the S&P 500. These changes exclude companies with multiple classes of shares of common stock from being added to these indices. In addition, several stockholder advisory firms have announced their opposition to the use of multiple class structures. As a result, the dual class structure of our common stock may prevent the inclusion of our Class A common stock in these indices and may cause stockholder advisory firms to publish negative commentary about our corporate governance practices or otherwise seek to cause us to change our capital structure. Any such exclusion from indices could result in a less active trading market for our Class A common stock. Any actions or publications by stockholder advisory firms critical of our corporate governance practices or capital structure could also adversely affect the value of our Class A common stock.
 
49

 
We may have conflicts of interest with Intel and, because of (i) certain provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation relating to related person transactions and corporate opportunities, (ii) agreements we have and will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, and (iii) Intel’s controlling beneficial ownership interest in our company, we may not be able to resolve such conflicts on terms favorable to us.
Conflicts of interest may arise between Intel and us in a number of areas relating to our ongoing relationship. Potential conflicts of interest that we have identified include the following:

Certain of our directors may have conflicts of interest.   Each of Patrick Gelsinger, Christine Pambianchi, and Saf Yeboah-Amankwah serves both as our director and in a senior management role at Intel. Such directors owe fiduciary duties to our company pursuant to Delaware law, but these relationships could create, or appear to create, conflicts of interest when these persons are faced with decisions with potentially different implications for Intel and us.

Sale of shares of our common stock.   Intel may decide to sell all or a portion of our shares that it holds to a third party, including to one of our competitors, thereby giving that third-party substantial influence over our business and our affairs and possibly depressing the trading price of our Class A common stock. Such a sale could be in conflict with your interests. Prior to any such time as our Class B common stock is distributed to security holders of Intel in a transaction (including any distribution in exchange for shares of Intel’s or its successor-in-interest’s common stock or other securities) intended to qualify as a distribution under Section 355 of the Code, or any corresponding provision of any successor statute, shares of our Class B common stock will automatically be converted into shares of Class A common stock upon the transfer of such shares of Class B common stock by Intel other than to any of Intel’s successors. See “Description of Capital Stock — Common Stock — Conversion.”

Developing business relationships with Intel’s competitors.   We may from time to time partner with, purchase from, and sell to a number of companies that compete with Intel. These companies may be less willing or unwilling to develop and maintain relationships with us, and may favor our competitors or may view us as competitors, because of our relationship with Intel.

Allocation of business opportunities.   Business opportunities may arise that both we and Intel find attractive, and which would complement our businesses. We may be prevented from taking advantage of new business opportunities that Intel has entered into. Furthermore, our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will provide that, until the later of (i) first date on which Intel ceases to beneficially own 20% or more of our outstanding shares of common stock and (ii) the date upon which none of our officers and/or directors are also officers and/or directors of Intel, (x) we will waive any interest or expectancy in potential transactions presented to our directors and officers who are also directors and/or officers of Intel unless expressly offered to such person in his or her capacity as our director and/or officer, as applicable, and (y) Intel shall have the right to, and shall have no duty not to, engage in the same or similar business activities or lines of business as we do, do business with any of our clients or customers, and employ or otherwise engage any of our officers or employees. See “Description of Capital Stock — Provisions of Our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation Relating to Related Person Transactions and Corporate Opportunities.” We may therefore not be entitled to, and Intel may be entitled to, pursue business opportunities which may otherwise be appropriate for us.

Sale of our products on favorable terms.   Under the terms of the Master Transaction Agreement we will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, so long as Intel holds at least 20% of our common stock, we will sell Intel our commercially available products, including EyeQ® SoCs, for internal use, but not for resale on a standalone or bundled basis. We and Intel will also agree pursuant to the Master Transaction Agreement to hold the other in most favored status with respect to products purchased or sold for internal use, meaning that the product prices, terms, warranties, and benefits provided between us and Intel shall be comparable to or better than the equivalent terms being offered by the party providing the products to any single, present customer of such party.

Worldwide and perpetual license to patents.   We are party to an agreement with Intel under which (i) we grant to Intel a royalty-free, nonexclusive, nontransferable, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable under certain circumstances, and worldwide license under patents and patent applications owned or
 
50

 
controlled by us, and (ii) Intel grants to us a royalty-free, nonexclusive, nontransferable, and worldwide license, sublicense, or other right, as applicable, under certain patents and patent applications of other Intel subsidiaries and certain third parties. Any license, sublicense, or other right granted by Intel to us with respect to third-party patents and patent applications (or specific claims thereof) included in the grant in clause (ii) may be revoked (effective as of the date specified by Intel) by Intel, in whole or in part, at any time (and automatically terminates once Intel can no longer extend such rights to us under the applicable third-party license agreement), and all licenses, sublicenses or other rights from Intel with respect to patents and patent applications of other Intel subsidiaries included in the grant by Intel to us in clause (ii) automatically terminate once Intel’s ownership of our common stock falls below 50%. The license granted by us to Intel in clause (i) survives even if Intel’s ownership of our common stock falls below 50%, but solely with respect to patents and patent applications owned or controlled by us as of or prior to such time. The agreement will continue until the expiration of the last to expire of the patents and patent applications included in the grants in clauses (i) and (ii), unless earlier terminated by Intel at any time for its convenience. If any of our licenses from Intel were to terminate for any reason, we may be unable to replace such licenses at prices or on terms as favorable as those Intel provides, if at all, and that could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — Historical Related Party Transactions — Cross-License Agreement.”

Limited license from Intel for certain technology related to lidar.   Intel has granted us a limited license for sensitive core technology relating to lidar pursuant to a LiDAR Product Collaboration Agreement. The license is limited to a particular lidar sensor system for ADAS and AV systems in automobiles and to certain types of customers (Tier 1s, OEMs and MaaS). For this purpose, automobile means a vehicle used primarily on public roads for transportation and not for military purposes. The development by us of any future products based on Intel technology will depend on future agreements. We are not licensed to manufacture the product based on Intel technology with anyone other than Intel. Intellectual property developed by us regarding the lidar technology, except for specifically identified lidar system technology which is developed solely by us following the completion of this offering, will be assigned by us to Intel. As a result we will not own most new lidar intellectual property, even if it is developed solely by us. The agreement will have a term of ten years subject to automatic 24-month renewal periods unless notice of nonrenewal is given. Either party may terminate the agreement for any reason by giving 24-month notice to the other party, and additional termination rights arise if Intel shuts down, sells, or transfers the factory operations for silicon photonics or if we cease lidar development or sale, as well as for a party’s material breach or bankruptcy or insolvency. Termination of the agreement would terminate our license and could result in having limited lidar technology and would force us to source third party lidar solutions. Our ability to source lidar cost effectively is an important component of our planned approach to address the AMaaS and consumer AV markets. If we are not able to continue to use or license sensitive core technology related to lidar from Intel, we may not be able to secure alternatives in a timely manner, or at all, and our ability to remain competitive would be harmed, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to Our Business — If we are unable to develop and introduce new solutions and improve existing solutions in a cost-effective and timely manner, then our competitive position would be negatively impacted and our business, results of operations and financial condition would be adversely affected” and “Risk Factors — Risks Related to our Intellectual Property Rights — We depend on licenses for certain technologies from third parties, some of which require us to pay royalties, and our inability to use such technologies in the future would harm our ability to remain competitive.” In addition, though there is a limited period of up to five years in which we have exclusive rights to market and sell the initial lidar sensor system for defined uses, the non-compete provisions in the agreement do not preclude Intel from developing similar lidar products with our competitors, or directly competing with us with regard to certain substantially similar lidar products. In addition, the agreement includes limitations on our ability (except after review and approval by Intel) to file a patent application based on or using the lidar intellectual property licensed to us under the agreement, or information in Intel’s lidar patents during the term of the agreement and for five years after the completion of the development of the last Mobileye lidar product. See “Certain Relationship and Related Party Transactions — Transactions to be Entered into in Connection with this Offering — Intercompany Agreements — LiDAR Product Collaboration Agreement.”

Limited license from Intel for certain technology related to radar.   Intel has granted us a limited license for sensitive core technology relating to radar pursuant to a Technology and Services Agreement. The license is limited to the development of a specific type of radar for specific applications. Any radar products which do not comply with this definition will require a separate license from Intel, at Intel’s discretion. Intellectual property developed under the agreement, either solely or jointly with Intel, regarding the radar technology, except for certain rights to specifically identified radar technology which is developed solely by us following the completion of this offering, will be assigned by us to Intel. As a result we will not own most new radar intellectual property, even if it is developed solely by us. If we are unable to continue to use or license sensitive core technology related to radar from Intel, we may not be able to secure alternatives in a timely manner, or at all, and our ability to remain competitive would be harmed, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to Our Business — If we are unable to develop and introduce new solutions and improve existing solutions in a cost-effective and timely manner, then our competitive position would be negatively impacted and our business, results of operations and financial condition would be adversely affected” and “Risk Factors — Risks Related to our Intellectual Property Rights — We depend on licenses for certain technologies from third parties, some of which require us to pay royalties, and our inability to use such technologies in the future would harm our ability to remain competitive.” We are licensed to sell the radar products only for ADAS and AV solutions for automobiles and to certain types of customers (Tier1s, OEMs, MaaS). The Technology and Services Agreement will have a term of two years, and will automatically renew for one-year renewal periods, unless the agreement is terminated for a party’s material breach, a party’s bankruptcy or insolvency, or advance notice of nonrenewal is given, however, termination of the agreement does not affect certain licenses granted to us by Intel in respect of the radar product. In addition, the agreement includes limitations on our ability (except after review and approval by Intel) to file a patent application based on or using the radar intellectual property licensed to us under the agreement, or information in Intel’s radar patents during the term of the agreement and for five years after the completion of the development of the last Mobileye sensor product. See “Certain Relationship and Related Party Transactions — Transactions to be Entered into in Connection with this Offering — Intercompany Agreements — Technology and Services Agreement.”
Intel will continue to beneficially hold a majority of the voting power of our common stock and we and Intel expect to continue as strategic partners, collaborating on projects to pursue the growth of computing in the automotive sector. Intel may from time to time make strategic decisions that it believes are in the best interests of its business as a whole, including our company. These decisions may be different from the decisions that we would have made on our own. Intel’s decisions with respect to us or our business, including any related party transactions between Intel and us, may be resolved in ways that favor Intel and its stockholders, which may not coincide with the interests of our other stockholders.
Although we intend to enter into the Tax Sharing Agreement with Intel under which our tax liabilities effectively will be determined based upon, subject to certain assumptions, our and/or our subsidiaries’ assets and activities, we nonetheless could be held liable for the tax liabilities of other members of any consolidated, combined or unitary tax group of Intel and/or its subsidiaries.
We have historically been included in Intel’s consolidated group (the “Consolidated Group”) for U.S. federal income tax purposes, as well as in certain consolidated, combined, or unitary groups that include Intel and/or certain of its subsidiaries for state and local income tax purposes (each, a “Combined Group”). We intend to enter into the Tax Sharing Agreement with Intel that will become effective upon completion of this offering. Pursuant to the Tax Sharing Agreement, we generally will make payments to Intel such that, with respect to tax returns for any taxable period in which we or any of our subsidiaries are included in the Consolidated Group or any Combined Group, the amount of taxes to be paid by us will be determined by computing the excess (if any) of any taxes due on any such return over the amount that would otherwise be due if such return were recomputed by excluding us and/or our included subsidiaries.
We have previously been included in the Consolidated Group for the most recent annual period and expect to be included in the Consolidated Group following this offering. Each member of a consolidated
 
52

 
group during any part of a consolidated return year is jointly and severally liable for tax on the consolidated return of such year and for any subsequently determined deficiency thereon. Similarly, in some jurisdictions, each member of a consolidated, combined or unitary group for state, local, or foreign income tax purposes is jointly and severally liable for the state, local, or foreign income tax liability of each other member of the consolidated, combined or unitary group. Accordingly, for any period in which we are included in the Consolidated Group or any Combined Group, we could be liable in the event that any income tax liability was incurred, but not discharged, by any other member of any such group.
In order to preserve the ability for Intel to distribute its shares of our Class B common stock pursuant to a tax-free spin-off under U.S. federal income tax law, we may be prevented from pursuing opportunities to raise capital, effectuate acquisitions, or provide equity incentives to our employees, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Under current U.S. federal income tax law, in order to consummate a tax-free spin-off of our stock, Intel would need to have beneficial ownership of our stock representing at least 80% of the total voting power and 80% of each class of non-voting capital stock. As of the date of this prospectus, Intel does not intend or plan to undertake a spin-off of our stock to Intel stockholders. Nevertheless, if Intel were to decide to pursue a possible spin-off, we have agreed to cooperate with Intel and to take any and all actions reasonably requested by Intel in connection with such a transaction. Our rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to any possible spin-off are set forth in the Master Transaction Agreement and Tax Sharing Agreement. For example, in the event Intel completes a spin-off, we have agreed not to take certain actions, such as asset sales or contributions, mergers, stock issuances, or stock sales within the two years following the spin-off without first obtaining the opinion of tax counsel or an IRS ruling to the effect that such actions will not result in the spin-off failing to qualify as a tax-free spin-off. See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — Intercompany Agreements — Master Transaction Agreement” and “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — Intercompany Agreements — Tax Sharing Agreement.” Additionally, under our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, until the first date on which Intel ceases to beneficially own 20% or more of the outstanding shares of our common stock, the prior affirmative vote or written consent of Intel, as the holder of the Class B common stock, is required in order to authorize us to issue any stock or other equity securities except to our subsidiaries, pursuant to this offering, or pursuant to our employee benefit plans limited to a share reserve of 5% of the outstanding number of shares of our common stock on the immediately preceding December 31. Intel’s intention to retain its ability to effectuate a tax-free spin-off of our stock may cause Intel to decide not to consent to such issuances. See “— Certain corporate actions by us would require the prior consent of Intel, and there can be no guarantee that Intel will consent to such matters, even if they are in our best interests.” These requirements could prevent us from pursuing opportunities to raise capital, effectuate acquisitions, or provide equity incentives to our employees, which could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Certain corporate actions by us would require the prior consent of Intel, and there can be no guarantee that Intel will consent to such actions, even if they are in our best interests.
Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will provide that, in addition to any other vote required by law or by our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, until the first date on which Intel ceases to beneficially own 20% or more of the outstanding shares of our common stock, the prior affirmative vote or written consent of Intel as the holder of the Class B common stock is required in order to authorize us to take certain corporate actions. See “Description of Capital Stock — Common Stock —  Approval Rights of Holders of Class B Common Stock.” There can be no guarantee that Intel will consent to such actions, even if they are in our best interests.
We have historically utilized and upon completion of this offering plan to continue to utilize various administrative services and licenses provided by Intel, and if we are unable to continue utilizing such services and/or licenses we may fail to replace them at prices or on terms as favorable as those Intel provides. In addition, we have granted Intel a worldwide and perpetual license to our patents and patent applications.
We have historically utilized various administrative, financial, and other services provided by Intel. In addition, we are party to an agreement with Intel under which (i) we grant to Intel a royalty-free, nonexclusive,
 
53

 
nontransferable, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable under certain circumstances, and worldwide license under patents and patent applications owned or controlled by us, and (ii) Intel grants to us a royalty-free, nonexclusive, nontransferable, and worldwide license, sublicense, or other right, as applicable, under certain patents and patent applications of other Intel subsidiaries and certain third parties. Any license, sublicense, or other right granted by Intel to us with respect to third-party patents and patent applications (or specific claims thereof) included in the grant in clause (ii) may be revoked (effective as of the date specified by Intel) by Intel, in whole or in part, at any time (and automatically terminates once Intel can no longer extend such rights to us under the applicable third-party license agreement), and all licenses, sublicenses or other rights from Intel with respect to patents and patent applications of other Intel subsidiaries included in the grant by Intel to us in clause (ii) automatically terminate once Intel’s ownership of our common stock falls below 50%. The license granted by us to Intel in clause (i) survives even if Intel’s ownership of our common stock falls below 50%, but solely with respect to patents and patent applications owned or controlled by us as of or prior to such time. The agreement will continue until the expiration of the last to expire of the patents and patent applications included in the grants in clauses (i) and (ii), unless earlier terminated by Intel at any time for its convenience. If any of our licenses from Intel were to terminate for any reason, we may be unable to replace such licenses at prices or on terms as favorable as those Intel provides, if at all, and that could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition. See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — Historical Related Party Transactions — Cross-License Agreement.”
Following the completion of this offering, Intel will continue to provide us with administrative, financial, legal, tax, and other services pursuant to the Administrative Services Agreement and certain technologies and products that may be used in the development, manufacture, and commercialization of our solutions pursuant to the Technology and Services Agreement and LiDAR Product Collaboration Agreement. See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions.” If we are unable to maintain these contractual relationships with Intel, we may fail to replace such services and/or licenses at prices or on terms as favorable as those Intel provides, and that could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Risks Related to this Offering and Our Class A Common Stock
An active trading market for our Class A common stock may never develop or be sustained, which may cause shares of our Class A common stock to trade at a discount from the initial public offering price and you may not be able to resell your shares at or above the initial public offering price.
Since Intel has completed its acquisition of us, prior to this offering, there has not been a public trading market for shares of our Class A common stock. It is possible that an active trading market for our Class A common stock will not develop or, if developed, not be sustained, which would make it difficult for you to sell your shares of Class A common stock at an attractive price or at all. The initial public offering price per share of our Class A common stock will be determined by agreement between us and the underwriters and may not be indicative of the price at which shares of our Class A common stock will trade in the public market after this offering. The market price of our Class A common stock may decline below the initial public offering price, and you may not be able to sell your shares of our Class A common stock at or above the price you paid in this offering or at all.
The market price of our Class A common stock may fluctuate, and you could lose all or part of your investment.
The stock market in general has been, and the market price of our Class A common stock specifically is, subject to fluctuation, whether due to, or irrespective of, our operating results and financial condition. The market price of our Class A common stock on Nasdaq may fluctuate as a result of a number of factors, some of which are beyond our control, including, but not limited to:

announcements by regulators and other safety organizations regarding ADAS, autonomous driving and related technology;

publicized accidents involving ADAS and autonomous driving technology, whether developed by us or our competitors;

market acceptance of our solutions;
 
54

 

the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our management, employees, customers, and operating results;

announcements of the results of research and development projects by us or our competitors;

announcements by others relating to autonomous driving technology and its adoption by OEMs;

development of new competitive systems and products by others;

changes in earnings estimates or recommendations by securities analysts;

developments concerning our intellectual property rights;

loss of key personnel, particularly Professor Shashua;

changes in the cost of satisfying our warranty obligations;

loss of key customers;

disruptions to our and the global supply chain;

macroeconomic irregularities such as worsening inflationary trends, volatile interest rates and labor shortages;

delays between our expenditures to develop and market new or enhanced products and the generation of sales from those products;

changes in the amount that we spend to develop, acquire, or license new products, technologies, or businesses;

changes in our research and development and operating expenditures;

variations in our and our competitors’ results of operations and financial condition;

our sale or proposed sale or the sale or proposed sale by Intel (or other actions taken by Intel) or other significant stockholders of our common stock or other securities in the future; and

general market conditions and other factors, including factors unrelated to our operating performance.
In addition, the Cornerstone Investors have, severally and not jointly, indicated an interest in purchasing up to an aggregate of $330 million of the shares of our Class A common stock offered in this offering at the initial public offering price and on the same terms and conditions as the other purchasers in this offering. In addition, Professor Shashua, our Chief Executive Officer, President, and a member of our board of directors, has indicated an interest in purchasing up to $10 million of the shares of our Class A common stock offered in this offering at the initial public offering price. Because these indications of interest are not binding agreements or commitments to purchase, the Cornerstone Investors and/or Professor Shashua could determine to purchase more, less, or no shares in this offering, and the underwriters could determine to sell more, less, or no shares to any of the Cornerstone Investors or Professor Shashua. As a result, the underwriters may allocate such shares to other investors in this offering. If any of the Cornerstone Investors and/or Professor Shashua are allocated a portion or all of, or more than, the shares of Class A common stock in which they have indicated an interest in purchasing in this offering, their election to purchase any such shares could reduce the available public float for our Class A common stock.
These factors and any corresponding price fluctuations may materially and adversely affect the market price of our shares of Class A common stock and result in substantial losses being incurred by our investors. Market prices for securities of technology companies historically have been very volatile. The market for these securities has from time to time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations for reasons unrelated to the operating performance of any one company. In the past, following periods of market volatility, public company stockholders have often instituted securities class action litigation in the United States. If we were involved in securities litigation, then it could impose a substantial cost upon us and divert the resources and attention of our management from our business.
We have broad discretion over the use of net proceeds from this offering and the concurrent private placement, and we may not use them effectively.
We intend to use the net proceeds that we receive from this offering and the concurrent private placement as follows: (i) to retain for working capital and general corporate purposes a portion of the net
 
55

 
proceeds in such amount as is necessary so that Intel ensures that, immediately after completion of this offering and on a pro forma as adjusted basis after all expenses of this offering have been paid (and after giving effect to any repayment of any indebtedness of Intel and any other transactions contemplated to occur substantially concurrently with this offering), we have $1.0 billion in cash, cash equivalents or marketable securities, in accordance with the terms of the Master Transaction Agreement; and (ii) to use the remainder to repay a portion of the indebtedness owed to Intel under the Dividend Note. On a pro forma as adjusted basis as of July 2, 2022, the portion of net proceeds retained by us would have been approximately $226 million and the portion of net proceeds used to repay a portion of the indebtedness owed to Intel under the Dividend Note would have been approximately $0.6 billion (or $0.7 billion if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full). See “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information.” The actual amount of net proceeds retained will be based upon the estimated balance of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of the closing date of this offering, which balance may be higher or lower than the pro forma balance as of July 2, 2022. Intel informed us that it intends to contribute to Mobileye Global Inc. any remaining portion of the Dividend Note in excess of such repayment in connection with this offering and the concurrent private placement, so that no amounts under the Dividend Note would remain owed by us to Intel after the completion of the transactions contemplated by this offering and the concurrent private placement. Our management will have broad discretion in the application of net proceeds from this offering and the concurrent private placement allocated for working capital and general corporate purposes, and you will not have the opportunity as part of your investment decision to assess whether such proceeds are being used appropriately. The failure by our management to apply these proceeds effectively could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future.
Other than in connection with the Reorganization, we have never declared or paid cash dividends on our capital stock. We currently intend to retain any future earnings to finance the operation and expansion of our business, and we do not expect to declare or pay any dividends for the foreseeable future.
The requirements of being a public company may strain our resources and divert management’s attention.
As a public company, we will be subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“Sarbanes-Oxley Act”) and stock exchange rules promulgated in response to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The requirements of these rules and regulations will increase our legal and financial compliance costs, make some activities more difficult, time-consuming, or costly and increase demand on our systems and resources. After the completion of this offering, we will be obligated to file with the SEC annual and quarterly information and other reports that are specified in the Exchange Act, and therefore will need to have the ability to prepare financial statements that are compliant with all SEC reporting requirements on a timely basis.
In addition, we will be subject to other reporting and corporate governance requirements, including certain requirements of Nasdaq and certain provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder, which will impose significant compliance obligations upon us. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires, among other things, that we maintain effective disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls for financial reporting. In order to maintain and, if required, improve our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting to meet this standard, significant resources and management oversight may be required, and management’s attention may be diverted from other business concerns.
Furthermore, though we have been indirectly subject to these requirements previously as a subsidiary of Intel, we might not be successful in implementing these requirements. The increased costs of compliance with public company reporting requirements and our potential failure to satisfy these requirements could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Failure to establish and maintain effective internal controls over financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Upon becoming a public company, we will be required to comply with the SEC’s rules implementing Sections 302 and 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which will require management to certify financial and
 
56

 
other information in our quarterly and annual reports and, beginning in the first full fiscal year after the completion of this offering, provide an annual management report on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, to which our auditors will need to attest in accordance with guidelines set forth by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”). We may in the future identify material weaknesses when evaluating our internal control over financial reporting that we may not be able to remediate in time to meet the applicable deadline imposed upon us for compliance with the requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Testing and maintaining our internal control over financial reporting may also divert management’s attention from other matters that are important to the operation of our business. In addition, if we fail to achieve and maintain the adequacy of our internal controls, as such standards are modified, supplemented, or amended from time to time, then we may not be able to ensure that we can conclude on an ongoing basis that we have effective internal controls over financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We cannot be certain as to the timing of completion of our evaluation, testing and any remediation actions or the impact of the same on our operations. Moreover, any material weakness or other deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting may impede our ability to file timely and accurate reports with the SEC. Any of the above could cause a negative reaction in the financial markets due to a loss of confidence in the reliability of our financial statements. In addition, we may be required to incur costs in improving our internal control system and the hiring of additional personnel. Any such action could adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Investors in this offering and the concurrent private placement will experience immediate and substantial dilution.
The initial public offering price is substantially higher than the pro forma net tangible book value per share of our common stock immediately following this offering. Therefore, if you purchase shares of our Class A common stock in this offering, then, based on the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, and the issuance by us of 46,263,158 shares of Class A common stock in this offering and the concurrent private placement, you will experience immediate dilution of $17.45 per share, the difference between the price per share you pay for our Class A common stock and the pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share of our common stock as of July 2, 2022 after giving effect to this offering. Furthermore, if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares, if we issue awards to our employees under our equity incentive plans or if we otherwise issue additional shares of our Class A common stock, then you could experience further dilution. As a result of the dilution to investors purchasing shares in this offering, investors may receive less than the purchase price paid in this offering and the concurrent private placement, if anything, in the event of our liquidation. See “Dilution.”
If securities and industry analysts do not publish research or publish inaccurate or unfavorable research about our business, then the stock price and trading volume of our Class A common stock could decline.
The trading market for our Class A common stock will depend, in part, on the research and reports that securities and industry analysts publish about us and our business. Securities and industry analysts do not currently, and may never, cover our company. If securities and industry analysts do not commence coverage of our company following this offering, then the stock price of our Class A common stock would likely be negatively impacted. In the event securities or industry analysts initiate coverage, if one or more of the analysts who cover us downgrade our Class A common stock or publish inaccurate or unfavorable research about our business, then the stock price of our Class A common stock would likely decline. If one or more of these analysts cease coverage of our company or fail to publish reports on us regularly, then demand for our stock could decrease, which might cause the stock price and trading volume of our Class A common stock to decline.
The issuance by us of additional equity securities may dilute your ownership and adversely affect the market price of our Class A common stock.
After this offering and the concurrent private placement and the use of proceeds to us therefrom, we will have an aggregate of 3,953,736,842 authorized but unissued shares of Class A common stock. Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will authorize us to issue shares of Class A common stock and rights relating to Class A common stock for the consideration and on the terms and conditions established by our board of directors in its sole discretion, whether in connection with acquisitions or
 
57

 
otherwise. In addition, under the terms of the Master Transaction Agreement we will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering, we will grant Intel a continuing right to purchase from us such number of shares of Class A common stock or Class B common stock as is necessary for Intel to maintain an aggregate ownership of our common stock representing at least 80.1% of our common stock outstanding following the completion of this offering and the concurrent private placement. See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — Transactions to be Entered into in Connection with this Offering — Intercompany Agreements — Master Transaction Agreement.” Any common stock that we issue, including under our equity incentive plan or in connection with the Master Transaction Agreement, would dilute the percentage ownership held by the investors who purchase Class A common stock in this offering.
In the future, we may attempt to obtain financing or to further increase our capital resources by issuing additional shares of our Class A common stock or securities convertible into shares of our Class A common stock or by offering debt or other securities. We could also issue shares of our Class A common stock or securities convertible into our Class A common stock or debt or other securities in connection with acquisitions or other strategic transactions. Issuing additional shares of our Class A common stock or securities convertible into shares of our Class A common stock or debt or other securities may dilute the economic and voting rights of our existing stockholders and would likely reduce the market price of our Class A common stock.
Upon liquidation, holders of debt securities and preferred shares, if issued, and lenders with respect to other borrowings would receive a distribution of our distributable assets prior to the holders of our common stock. Debt securities convertible into equity securities could be subject to adjustments in the conversion ratio pursuant to which certain events may increase the number of equity securities issuable upon conversion. Preferred shares, if issued, could have a preference with respect to liquidating distribution or preferences with respect to dividend payments that could limit our ability to pay dividends to the holders of our common stock. Our decision to issue securities in any future offering will depend on market conditions and other factors beyond our control, which may adversely affect the amount, timing, and nature of our future offerings. As a result, holders of our Class A common stock bear the risk that our future offerings may reduce the market price of our Class A common stock and dilute their stockholdings in us.
Delaware law and certain provisions of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws that will be in effect at the completion of this offering could make a merger, tender offer, or proxy contest difficult, thereby adversely affecting the market price of our common stock.
Under our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, we will opt out of the anti-takeover provisions of Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”) upon the completion of this offering. If Intel’s holdings in our stock are reduced so that Intel no longer maintains at least 15% of the combined voting power of our common stock, then we will no longer opt out of Section 203 of the DGCL, which could discourage, delay, or prevent a change in control by prohibiting us from engaging in a business combination with an interested stockholder for a period of three years after the person becomes an interested stockholder, even if a change of control would be beneficial to our stockholders. In addition, our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws will contain provisions that may make the acquisition of our company more difficult, including the following:

our dual class common stock structure, which provides Intel, as the holder of our Class B common stock, with the ability to significantly influence the outcome of matters requiring stockholder approval, even if they own significantly less than a majority of the shares of our outstanding common stock;

if Intel’s holdings in our stock are reduced so that it no longer maintains a majority of the combined voting power of our common stock, our stockholders will only be able to take action at a meeting of stockholders and not by written consent;

vacancies on our board of directors will be able to be filled only by our board of directors and not by stockholders, provided, however, that vacancies on our board of directors caused by an action of stockholders may only be filled by a vote of the stockholders until Intel’s holdings in our stock are reduced so that it no longer maintains a majority of the combined voting power of our common stock;
 
58

 

beginning at the first annual meeting of stockholders following any such time that Intel’s holdings in our stock no longer represent at least 20% of the aggregate number of shares of our outstanding common stock, our board of directors will be classified into three classes of directors with staggered three-year terms;

beginning at the first annual meeting of stockholders following any such time that Intel’s holdings in our stock no longer represent at least 20% of the aggregate number of shares of our outstanding common stock, directors will only be able to be removed from office for cause;

so long as Intel’s holdings in our stock represent at least 20% of the aggregate number of shares of our outstanding common stock, consent by holders of a majority of our Class B common stock will be required for consolidations or mergers;

no provision in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation or amended and restated bylaws provides for cumulative voting, which limits the ability of minority stockholders to elect director candidates;

only the Chairman of our Board of Directors, our Chief Executive Officer, or our Secretary upon written request by a majority of our Board of Directors are authorized to call a special meeting of stockholders;

our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will provide that certain litigation against us can only be brought in Delaware unless we otherwise consent;

nothing in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation precludes future issuances without approval by holders of shares of our Class A common stock of the authorized but unissued shares of our common stock, though approval by holders of a majority of our Class B common stock will be required for such issuances for so long as Intel’s holdings in our stock represent at least 20% of the aggregate number of shares of outstanding common stock, subject to certain exclusions;

our amended and restated certificate of incorporation authorizes undesignated preferred stock, the terms of which may be established and shares of which may be issued, without the approval of the holders of our capital stock; and

advance notice procedures apply for stockholders to nominate candidates for election as directors or to bring matters before an annual meeting of stockholders.
These anti-takeover defenses could discourage, delay, or prevent a transaction involving a change in control of our company. These provisions could also discourage proxy contests and make it more difficult for stockholders to elect directors of their choosing and to cause us to take other corporate actions they desire, any of which, under certain circumstances, could limit the opportunity for our stockholders to receive a premium for their shares of our Class A common stock, and could also affect the price that some investors are willing to pay for our Class A common stock.
Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will contain exclusive forum provisions for certain claims, which could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers, or employees.
Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation that will be in effect upon completion of this offering, to the fullest extent permitted by law, will provide that, unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware will be the sole and exclusive forum for (1) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of us, (2) any action asserting a claim of breach of a duty (including any fiduciary duty) owed by any of our current or former directors, officers, stockholders, employees or agents to us or our stockholders, (3) any action asserting a claim against us or any of our current or former directors, officers, stockholders, employees or agents arising out of or relating to any provision of the DGCL or our amended and restated certificate of incorporation or our amended and restated bylaws, or (4) any action asserting a claim against us or any of our current or former directors, officers, stockholders, employees or agents governed by the internal affairs doctrine of the State of Delaware. As described below, this provision will not apply to suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act or Exchange Act, or rules and regulations thereunder.
 
59

 
Moreover, Section 22 of the Securities Act creates concurrent jurisdiction for federal and state courts over all claims brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder and our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will provide that the federal district courts of the United States will, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be the sole and exclusive forum for resolving any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act. Our decision to adopt such a federal forum provision followed a decision by the Supreme Court of the State of Delaware holding that such provisions are facially valid under Delaware law. While there can be no assurance that federal or state courts will follow the holding of the Delaware Supreme Court or determine that our federal forum provision should be enforced in a particular case, application of our federal forum provision means that suits brought by our stockholders to enforce any duty or liability created by the Securities Act must be brought in federal court and cannot be brought in state court.
Section 27 of the Exchange Act creates exclusive federal jurisdiction over all claims brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder and our amended and restated certificate of incorporation will provide that neither the exclusive forum provision nor our federal forum provision applies to suits brought to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act. Accordingly, actions by our stockholders to enforce any duty or liability created by the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder must be brought in federal court. Our stockholders will not be deemed to have waived our compliance with the federal securities laws and the regulations promulgated thereunder.
Any person or entity purchasing or otherwise acquiring or holding any interest in any of our securities shall be deemed to have notice of and consented to our exclusive forum provisions, including the federal forum provision. Additionally, our stockholders cannot waive compliance with the federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder. These provisions may limit our stockholders’ ability to bring a claim in a judicial forum they find favorable for disputes with us or our directors, officers, or other employees, which may discourage lawsuits against us and our directors, officers, and other employees and agents. Alternatively, if a court were to find the choice of forum provision contained in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation to be inapplicable or unenforceable in an action, we may incur additional costs associated with resolving such action in other jurisdictions, which could harm our business, operating results, and financial condition.
General Risks
Changes in our effective tax rates may reduce our net income.
A number of factors can increase our effective tax rates, which could reduce our net income, including:

changes in the volume and mix of profits earned and location of assets across jurisdictions with varying tax rates and the associated impacts of legislative actions affecting multi-national enterprises;

changes in the valuation of our deferred tax assets and liabilities, and in associated deferred tax asset valuation allowance;

adjustments to income taxes upon finalization of tax returns;

increases in expenses not deductible for tax purposes, including equity-based compensation or impairments of goodwill;

changes in available tax credits;

changes in our ability to secure new, or renew existing, tax holidays and incentives;

changes in U.S. federal, state, or foreign tax laws or their interpretation, including changes in the U.S. to the taxation of non-U.S. income and expenses and changes resulting from the adoption by countries of OECD recommendations or other legislative actions;

changes in accounting standards; and

those described under “Risks Related to Operations in Israel — The tax benefits that are available to us under Israeli law require us to meet various conditions and may be terminated or reduced in the future, which could increase our costs and taxes.”

Global or regional conditions can adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We and our suppliers have manufacturing, assembly and testing, research and development, sales and other operations in Israel and several other countries, and some of our business activities are concentrated in one or more geographic areas. Moreover, 74% of our total revenue in 2021 was derived outside of the United States, with China, Germany, and the United Kingdom making up 19%, 19%, and 14%, of such revenue respectively, based on the location of the customer to which the product was shipped. For the six months ended July 2, 2022, 73% of our revenue was derived outside of the United States, with China, Germany, and the United Kingdom making up 27%, 13%, and 12%, of such revenue respectively, based on the location of the customer to which the product was shipped. As a result, our business, operating results, and financial condition, including our ability to produce, assemble, test, design, develop, or sell products, and the demand for our solutions, are at times adversely affected by a number of global and regional factors outside of our control.
Adverse changes in global or regional economic conditions periodically occur, including recession or slowing growth, changes, or uncertainty in fiscal, monetary, or trade policy, higher interest rates, tighter credit, inflation, lower capital expenditures by businesses including on IT infrastructure, increases in unemployment and lower consumer confidence and spending. For example, the U.S. economy experienced negative growth during the first two quarters of 2022, and the rate of economic growth in Europe, China, and globally is expected to slow in 2022. This economic slowdown is expected to continue into 2023. Adverse changes in economic conditions can significantly harm demand for our solutions and make it more challenging to forecast our operating results and make business decisions, including regarding prioritization of investments in our business. An economic downturn or increased uncertainty may also lead to increased credit and collectability risks, higher borrowing costs or reduced availability of capital markets, reduced liquidity, adverse impacts on our suppliers, failures of counterparties including financial institutions and insurers, asset impairments and declines in the value of our financial instruments.
We can be adversely affected by other global and regional factors that periodically occur, including:

geopolitical and security issues, such as armed conflict and civil or military unrest, political instability, human rights concerns and terrorist activity;

natural disasters, public health issues (including the COVID-19 pandemic) and other catastrophic events;

inefficient infrastructure and other disruptions, such as supply chain interruptions and large-scale outages or unreliable provision of services from utilities, transportation, data hosting or telecommunications providers;

formal or informal imposition of new or revised export, import or doing-business regulations, including trade sanctions, tariffs, and changes in the ability to obtain export licenses, which could be changed without notice;

government restrictions on, or nationalization of, our operations in any country, or restrictions on our ability to repatriate earnings from a particular country;

adverse changes relating to government grants, tax credits or other government incentives, including more favorable incentives provided to competitors;

differing employment practices and labor issues;

ineffective legal protection of our intellectual property rights in certain countries;

local business and cultural factors that differ from our current standards and practices;

continuing uncertainty regarding social, political, immigration and tax and trade policies; and

fluctuations in the market values of any of our investments, which can be negatively affected by liquidity, credit deterioration or losses, interest rate changes, financial results, political risk, sovereign risk, or other factors.
Catastrophic events can adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
Our operations and business, and those of our customers and direct and indirect vendors and suppliers of OEMs, can be disrupted by natural disasters, industrial accidents, public health issues (including the
 
61

 
COVID-19 pandemic), cybersecurity incidents, interruptions of service from utilities, transportation, telecommunications or IT systems providers, production equipment failures or other catastrophic events. For example, we have at times experienced disruptions in our production processes as a result of power outages, improperly functioning equipment, and disruptions in supply of raw materials or components, including due to cybersecurity incidents affecting our suppliers. Global climate change can result in certain natural disasters occurring more frequently or with greater intensity, such as drought, wildfires, storms, sea-level rise, and flooding. The long-term effects of climate change on the global economy and the IT industry in particular are unclear, but could be severe.
Catastrophic events could make it difficult or impossible to produce or deliver products to our customers, receive production materials from our suppliers or perform critical functions, which could adversely affect our revenue and require significant recovery time and expenditures to resume operations. While we maintain business recovery plans, some of our systems are not fully redundant and we cannot be sure that our plans will fully protect us from such disruptions. Furthermore, even if our operations are unaffected or recover quickly, if our customers or suppliers cannot timely resume their own operations due to a catastrophic event, we may experience reduced or cancelled orders or disruptions to our supply chain that would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
We are covered by Intel’s insurance coverage for a variety of property, casualty, and other risks. The types and amounts of our insurance coverage vary depending on availability, cost, and decisions with respect to risk retention. Some of the policies under which we are covered have large deductibles and broad exclusions. In addition, one or more insurance providers may be unable or unwilling to pay a claim. Intel may also discontinue our insurance coverage and we may be unable to find replacement insurance on acceptable terms or at all, or claims by Intel under these policies may exhaust the available policy limits. Losses not covered by insurance may be large, which would adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

USE OF PROCEEDS
We expect to receive net proceeds from this offering and the concurrent private placement of approximately $0.8 billion (or approximately $0.9 billion if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full), after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us, based on an assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share of Class A common stock (the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover of this prospectus).
We intend to use the net proceeds that we receive from this offering and the concurrent private placement as follows: (i) to retain for working capital and general corporate purposes a portion of the net proceeds in such amount as is necessary so that Intel ensures that, immediately after completion of this offering and on a pro forma as adjusted basis after all expenses of this offering have been paid (and after giving effect to any repayment of any indebtedness of Intel and any other transactions contemplated to occur substantially concurrently with this offering), we have $1.0 billion in cash, cash equivalents or marketable securities immediately after the completion of this offering, in accordance with the terms of the Master Transaction Agreement we will enter into with Intel in connection with this offering; and (ii) to use the remainder to repay a portion of the indebtedness owed to Intel under the Dividend Note. On a pro forma as adjusted basis as of July 2, 2022, the portion of net proceeds retained by us would have been approximately $226 million and the portion of net proceeds used to repay a portion of the indebtedness owed to Intel under the Dividend Note would have been approximately $0.6 billion (or $0.7 billion if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full). See “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information.” The actual amount of net proceeds retained will be based upon the estimated balance of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of the closing date of this offering, which balance may be higher or lower than the pro forma balance as of July 2, 2022. Intel informed us that it intends to contribute to Mobileye Global Inc. any remaining portion of the Dividend Note in excess of such repayment in connection with this offering and the concurrent private placement, so that no amounts under the Dividend Note would remain owed by us to Intel after the completion of the transactions contemplated by this offering and the concurrent private placement. The Dividend Note is scheduled to mature on April 21, 2025 and accrues interest at a rate equal to 1.26% per annum. The Dividend Note is being issued in connection with our Reorganization, as described under “Prospectus Summary — Reorganization.”
A $1.00 increase (decrease) in the assumed initial public offering price per share would increase (decrease) the estimated net proceeds to us from this offering and the concurrent private placement by approximately $39.4 million assuming that the number of shares of our Class A common stock sold by us, as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us. Similarly, each increase (decrease) of 1,000,000 shares in the number of shares of our Class A common stock offered by us would increase (decrease) the net proceeds to us from this offering and the concurrent private placement by approximately $18.2 million, assuming that the assumed initial public offering price remains the same, and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

DIVIDEND POLICY
In connection with the Reorganization, on April 21, 2022, we distributed to Intel the Dividend Note, pursuant to which we have agreed to pay Intel an aggregate of $3.5 billion. We intend to use a significant portion of the net proceeds that we receive from this offering to repay indebtedness under the Dividend Note. Intel informed us that it intends to contribute to Mobileye Global Inc. any remaining portion of the Dividend Note in excess of such repayment in connection with this offering and the concurrent private placement, so that no amounts under the Dividend Note would remain owed by us to Intel after the completion of the transactions contemplated by this offering and the concurrent private placement. See “Use of Proceeds.” In connection with the Reorganization, on May 12, 2022, we declared and paid the Dividend in an aggregate amount of $336 million to Intel, net of $14 million of cash paid to tax authorities to settle related tax obligations.
Following the completion of this offering, we intend to retain any future earnings and do not anticipate declaring or paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to this Offering and Our Class A Common Stock — We do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future.”
Any declaration and payment of future dividends to holders of our common stock will be at the sole discretion of our board of directors and will depend on many factors, including economic conditions, our financial condition and operating results, our available cash and current and anticipated cash needs, capital requirements, legal, tax and regulatory restrictions, including restrictive covenants contained in certain of our subsidiaries’ credit facilities, and such other factors as our board of directors may deem relevant.
Under Delaware law, dividends may be payable only out of surplus, which is calculated as our net assets less our liabilities and our capital, or, if we have no surplus, out of our net profits for the fiscal year in which the dividend is declared and/or the preceding fiscal year.

DILUTION
If you invest in shares of our Class A common stock in this offering, you will experience immediate and substantial dilution in the net tangible book value per share of our Class A common stock upon the completion of this offering and the concurrent private placement. Dilution results from the fact that the per share offering price of the shares of our Class A common stock is substantially in excess of the pro forma net tangible book value per share after this offering and the concurrent private placement.
Our net tangible book value as of July 2, 2022 was $(2,499) million. Net tangible book value represents total tangible assets less total liabilities. Tangible assets represent total assets excluding goodwill and other intangible assets and capitalized offering costs. Net tangible book value per share represents net tangible book value divided by the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately prior to this offering and the concurrent private placement.
After giving effect to the pro forma adjustments described in the section titled “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information”, our pro forma net tangible book value as of July 2, 2022 would have been approximately $(2,499) million, or approximately $(3.33) per share of common stock. After giving effect to these pro forma adjustments, including the sale of 41,000,000 shares of our Class A common stock in this offering (assuming the underwriters do not exercise the option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock) and the sale of 5,263,158 shares of our Class A common stock in the concurrent private placement at an assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share of common stock (the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover page of this prospectus), and after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us, and the application of such net proceeds as described under “Use of Proceeds,” our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value as of July 2, 2022 would have been approximately $1,236 million, or approximately $1.55 per share of common stock. This represents an immediate increase in pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value of $4.88 per share of common stock to our existing stockholder and an immediate dilution (i.e., the difference between the offering price and the pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value after this offering) to investors participating in this offering and the concurrent private placement of $17.45 per share of common stock.
The following table illustrates the per share dilution to investors participating in this offering:

The following table summarizes on a pro forma as adjusted basis as of July 2, 2022, the total number of shares of common stock owned by our existing stockholder and to be owned by the investors participating in this offering and the concurrent private placement, the total consideration paid and the average price per share paid by our existing stockholder and to be paid by the investors participating in this offering at $19.00 per share of Class A common stock, the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, calculated before deducting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses:

A $1.00 increase (decrease) in the assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share, which is the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, would increase (decrease) our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value as of July 2, 2022 by $0.00 million, our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share by $0.00 per share and the dilution in pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering by $1.00 per share, assuming the number of shares offered by us, as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same, and after deducting the estimated underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses.
A 1.0 million share increase (decrease) in the number of shares of Class A common stock offered by us would increase (decrease), as applicable, our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value as of July 2, 2022 by $0.00, our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share by $0.00 per share and the dilution in pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering by $0.00 per share, assuming that the assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share, which is the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same, and after deducting the estimated underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses.
If the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full at the assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share, which is the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, assuming the number of shares offered by us (as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus) remains the same, and after deducting the estimated underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses, the pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share after this offering and the concurrent private placement would be approximately $1.54 per share, and the dilution per share to investors purchasing shares of common stock in this offering would be approximately $17.46 per share.
Immediately following the completion of this offering and the concurrent private placement, our issued and outstanding common stock will be held as follows: 46,263,158 shares of our Class A common stock (or 52,413,158 if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full), representing all of the issued and outstanding shares of our Class A common stock, will be held by investors in this offering and the concurrent private placement, based on an assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share (the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover of this prospectus); and 750,000,000 shares of our Class B common stock, representing all of the issued and outstanding shares of our Class B common stock, will be beneficially owned by Intel.

UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The following unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information consists of an unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet as of July 2, 2022, and unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations for the six months ended July 2, 2022, and the year ended December 25, 2021.
The unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet as of July 2, 2022, presents Mobileye Group’s combined financial position after giving pro forma effect to certain transactions, as described below, this offering and the use of the net proceeds from this offering, as described below (collectively, the “Transactions”), as if the Transactions occurred on July 2, 2022. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations for the six months ended July 2, 2022, and the year ended December 25, 2021 present Mobileye Group’s combined results of operations after giving pro forma effect to the Transactions as if the Transactions occurred on December 27, 2020, the first day of fiscal year 2021.
The following unaudited pro forma combined financial information has been prepared in conformity with Article 11 of Regulation S-X and is based on currently available information and certain estimates and assumptions. The adjustments in the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information have been identified and presented to provide relevant information necessary for an illustrative understanding of Mobileye Global Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries upon consummation of the Transactions. Assumptions and estimates underlying the unaudited pro forma adjustments set forth in the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information are described in the accompanying notes.
The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information is for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of financial results that would have been attained had the Transactions occurred on the dates indicated above and does not project our results of operations or financial position for any future period or as of any future date. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information also does not give effect to the potential impact of any operating synergies or cost savings that may result from the Transactions. Our future results of operations or financial position may vary significantly from the results reflected in the unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations and should not be relied on as an indication of our results after the consummation of the Transactions. See “Risk Factors—Risks Related to Our Relationship with Intel and Our Dual Class Structure —Our historical financial information may not be representative of our results as an independent public company.” However, we believe that the assumptions provide a reasonable basis for presenting the effects of the Transactions as contemplated and that the pro forma adjustments give appropriate effect to those assumptions and are properly applied in the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information.
The Reorganization and This Offering
In connection with this offering, Mobileye Global Inc., the issuer, was incorporated to serve as the holding company that owns Mobileye Group. The following transactions were completed as part of the Reorganization:

the legal purchase by us from Intel of 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of the Moovit entities, which we completed on May 31, 2022;

the recruitment of certain employees and acquisition of certain assets, in each case, relating to the Mobileye business from Intel, which we have substantially completed as of July 2, 2022;

the declaration and payment of the Dividend, net of $14 million of cash paid to tax authorities to settle related tax obligations, which we completed on May 12, 2022; and

the distribution on April 21, 2022 to Intel of the Dividend Note.
The $900 million payable from us to Intel for the purchase of 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of the Moovit entities referenced above, which we completed on May 31, 2022 (the “Moovit Purchase”), is presented within related party payable on the balance sheet in our historical combined financial statements. As further described under “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Loan Arrangements,” there is, as of July 2, 2022, an approximately $901 million related party receivable from Intel to Mobileye under the Bilateral Loan Arrangements (as defined in that section), and we plan to settle

the $900 million related party payable for the Moovit Purchase with cash to be received from Intel’s payment of such amount it owes to us under the Bilateral Loan Arrangement. The $900 million payment to Intel for the Moovit Purchase, and the payment to Mobileye of such related party receivable from Intel, are expected to occur substantially concurrently. The timing of the $900 million payment from us to Intel for the Moovit Purchase remains to be determined between us and Intel primarily based on certain tax considerations and is not tied to the timing of the Reorganization or this offering.
The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information reflects the impact of certain transactions, which comprise the following:

the legal entity reorganization of our operations comprising the Mobileye Group business so that they are all under the single parent entity, Mobileye Global Inc., and the filing and effectiveness of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation;

restricted stock units will be awarded to employees; and

the execution of the Intercompany Agreements with Intel, whereby, among other matters, Intel will continue to provide certain administrative and operational services, including the supply and license of certain technologies, whereby we will supply Intel with certain technologies, and whereby Intel’s and our respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to all tax matters will be governed (including tax liabilities, tax attributes, tax returns and tax audits).
Other events we expect to occur in connection with the offering are summarized below:

the sale by us of 41,000,000 shares of our Class A common stock in this offering (assuming the underwriters do not exercise the option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock) and the sale by us of 5,263,158 shares of our Class A common stock in the concurrent private placement at an assumed initial public offering price of $19.00 per share (the midpoint of the price range set forth on the cover of this prospectus), after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us; and

the use of a significant portion of the net proceeds that we receive from this offering and the concurrent private placement to repay approximately $0.6 billion (or $0.7 billion if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of our Class A common stock in full) of indebtedness under the Dividend Note so that we retain the amount of net proceeds in accordance with the Master Transaction Agreement which requires that Intel ensure that, immediately after completion of this offering and on a pro forma basis after all expenses of this offering have been paid (and after giving effect to any repayment of any indebtedness of Intel and any other transactions contemplated to occur substantially concurrently with this offering), we have $1.0 billion in cash, cash equivalents or marketable securities. On a pro forma as adjusted basis as of July 2, 2022, the portion of net proceeds retained by us would have been approximately $226 million. Intel informed us that it intends to contribute to Mobileye Global Inc. any remaining portion of the Dividend Note in excess of such repayment in connection with this offering and the concurrent private placement, so that no amounts under the Dividend Note would remain owed by us to Intel after the completion of the transactions contemplated by this offering and the concurrent private placement.
Furthermore, immediately after completion of this offering and the concurrent private placement and on a pro forma basis after all expenses of this offering have been paid (and after giving effect to any repayment of any indebtedness by us to Intel and any other transactions contemplated to occur substantially concurrently with this offering), the Master Transaction Agreement provides that Intel will ensure that we will have $1.0 billion in cash, cash equivalents, or marketable securities.
The historical combined financial information has been derived from the combined financial statements of Mobileye Group and accompanying notes to the combined financial statements included elsewhere in this prospectus. Mobileye Global Inc. was formed in January 2022 and has no, and will not have any, material assets or results of operations until the completion of the Reorganization. Therefore, its historical financial information is not included in the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information. Following this offering, Mobileye Global Inc. will be a holding company with no operations and no material assets of its own other than its ownership interest in Mobileye Group.
