SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 16, 2021–
QuantumScape Corporation (NYSE: QS, or "QuantumScape"), a leader in the development of next generation solid-state lithium-metal batteries, today announced that the Warrant Agreement, dated June 25, 2020, between QuantumScape and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (the “Warrant Agreement”) was amended to allow for the earlier exercise of the public warrants to purchase shares of QuantumScape’s Class A common stock (the “Public Warrants”).

Prior to the amendment, the Public Warrants were exercisable starting on June 30, 2021.
