ABOUT THIS PROSPECTUS

This prospectus is part of an automatic shelf registration statement that we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as a “well-known seasoned issuer” as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), utilizing a “shelf” registration process. Under this process, selling stockholders named in this prospectus or in one or more supplements to this prospectus may sell shares of common stock from time to time. Each time any selling stockholder not named herein sells shares of common stock under the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, such selling stockholder will provide a copy of this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement, as required by law. Any applicable prospectus supplement may add, update, or change information contained in this prospectus.

The selling stockholders may offer and sell shares of common stock directly to purchasers, through agents selected by the selling stockholders, or to or through underwriters or dealers. A prospectus supplement, if required, may describe the terms of the plan of distribution and set forth the names of any agents, underwriters, or dealers involved in the sale of shares of common stock. See “Plan of Distribution.”

You should read this prospectus together with any applicable prospectus supplement, as well as additional information described under the heading “Where You Can Find More Information.” You should rely only on the information contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, any accompanying prospectus supplement and any applicable “free writing prospectus.” We have not authorized, and no selling stockholder has authorized, anyone else to provide you with different or additional information. No offer of shares of common stock is being made in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted.

You should not assume that the information in this prospectus, any accompanying prospectus supplement, or any document incorporated by reference herein or therein is accurate as of any date other than their respective dates. Our business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects may have changed since those dates. You should carefully read the entire prospectus, as well as the documents incorporated by reference in the prospectus, any applicable prospectus supplement and any applicable “free writing prospectus” before making an investment decision.

References in this prospectus to the terms “the Company,” “PayPal,” “we,” “our” and “us” or other similar terms mean PayPal Holdings, Inc. and our wholly owned subsidiaries, unless we state otherwise or the context indicates otherwise.

The Offering

 

Common stock offered by the selling stockholders

526,912 shares

 

Our common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol

PYPL

 

Use of proceeds

All of the shares of common stock being offered under this prospectus are being sold by the selling stockholders. Accordingly, we will not receive any proceeds from the sale of these shares.

Background

On September 7, 2021, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”), by and among PayPal, Inc., Paidy Inc., a kabushiki kaisha (“Paidy”), each of the persons set forth in Schedule 1 thereto and Fortis Advisors LLC, as the sellers’ agent. Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, on October 13, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), we completed the acquisition of Paidy by acquiring all outstanding shares (the “Transaction”).

Concurrently with the execution of the Securities Purchase Agreement, each of the selling stockholders entered into Reinvestment Agreements. Under the Reinvestment Agreements, each of the selling stockholders reinvested a portion of the cash purchase price such selling stockholder received in the Transaction for the

Table of Contents

purchase of the shares of our common stock (collectively, the “Reinvestment Shares”). One-third of the Reinvestment Shares will vest and be deliverable on each of the first and second anniversaries of the Closing Date, and the remaining Reinvestment Shares will vest and be deliverable on the third anniversary of the Closing Date, in each case, subject to the selling stockholder’s continued employment with us or an affiliate through the applicable vesting and delivery date. Payments under the Reinvestment Agreements may be accelerated in the case of certain involuntary terminations of employment (including due to a selling stockholder’s termination without “cause” or for “good reason” or due to death or disability). In addition, each selling stockholder may be required to satisfy indemnification obligations in accordance with the Securities Purchase Agreement.

Our stockholders are not third-party beneficiaries under the Securities Purchase Agreement and the related agreements and should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of PayPal, Paidy or any of their respective subsidiaries.

Throughout this prospectus, when we refer to the shares of our common stock, the offer and sale of which are being registered on behalf of the selling stockholders, we are referring to the shares of common stock held by former holders of capital stock of Paidy that were sold and issued pursuant to the Reinvestment Agreements. When we refer to the “selling stockholders” in this prospectus, we are referring to those certain former holders of capital stock of Paidy listed beginning on page 6.

RISK FACTORS

Investing in our securities involves risks. You should carefully review the risk factors contained under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, or our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022 and any risk factors that we may describe in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K filed subsequently to this prospectus, which risk factors are incorporated by reference in this prospectus, as well as any specific risk factors discussed under the caption “Risk Factors” in any applicable prospectus supplement and/or free writing prospectus or in any document incorporated herein or therein by reference and the other information contained in, or incorporated by reference in, this prospectus or any applicable prospectus supplement and/or free writing prospectus before making an investment decision. The risks and uncertainties described in our SEC filings are not the only ones facing us. Additional risks and uncertainties that we are unaware of, or that we currently believe are not material, may also become important factors that adversely affect our business. If any such risks and uncertainties actually occur, our business, financial condition, results of operations, and future prospects could be materially and adversely affected, the market price of our securities could decline and you could lose all or part of your investment. See “Incorporation of Certain Documents by Reference” and “Forward-Looking Statements.”

Additionally, our forward-looking statements include expectations related to anticipated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements.

Such risks and uncertainties include, among others, those discussed under “Risk Factors” in this prospectus, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022, as well as in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, related notes, and the other information appearing elsewhere in our filings with the SEC. We do not intend, and undertake no obligation, to update any of our forward-looking statements after the date of this prospectus to reflect actual results or future events or circumstances, except as required by law. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. We claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 for all forward-looking statements.

SELLING STOCKHOLDERS

We are registering for resale an aggregate of 526,912 shares of our common stock that may be sold by the selling stockholders set forth herein. Such shares were sold and issued by us to the former stockholders of Paidy in connection with the closing of the acquisition pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement and the related agreements.

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and includes voting or investment power with respect to our common stock. To our knowledge, the selling stockholders have sole voting and investment power with respect to their respective shares of common stock, unless otherwise noted below. The selling stockholders may sell some, all or none of their respective shares of common stock offered by this prospectus from time to time. We do not know how long the selling stockholders will hold their respective shares of common stock covered hereby before selling them. Each selling stockholder that has entered into Reinvestment Agreements has agreed that its shares of common stock are subject to forfeiture if such selling shareholder’s employment at PayPal or an affiliate is terminated prior to vesting, other than a termination without cause, for good reason or due to death or disability, and such shares of common stock are released from potential forfeiture over a three-year period. Payments under the Reinvestment Agreements may be accelerated in the case of certain involuntary terminations of employment (including due to a selling stockholder’s termination without “cause” or for “good reason” or due to death or disability). Other than the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Reinvestment Agreements and the agreements contemplated thereby, we currently have no agreements, arrangements or understandings with the selling stockholders regarding the sale of any of the shares of common stock being offered hereunder.

The selling stockholders may distribute the shares of our common stock offered hereby from time to time in one or more transactions:

 

   

at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed;

 

   

at market prices prevailing at the time of sale;

 

   

at prices related to such prevailing market prices; or

 

   

at negotiated prices.

The selling stockholders may use any one or more of the following methods when selling the shares offered hereby:

 

   

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

 

   

one or more block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell such shares as agent or principal of all of such shares held by the selling stockholder;

 

   

purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by such broker-dealer for its account;

If the selling stockholders effect such transactions by selling shares of common stock offered hereby to or through underwriters, broker-dealers or agents, such underwriters, broker-dealers or agents may receive commissions in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the selling stockholders or commissions from purchasers of the shares of common stock offered hereby for whom they may act as agent or to whom they may sell as principal (which discounts, concessions or commissions as to particular underwriters, broker-dealers or agents may be in excess of those customary in the types of transactions involved). In connection with sales of the shares of common stock offered hereby or otherwise, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers, which may in turn engage in short sales of the shares of common stock offered hereby in the course of hedging in positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell shares of common stock offered hereby short and deliver shares of common stock covered by this prospectus to close out short positions and to return borrowed shares in connection with such short sales. The selling stockholders may also loan or pledge shares of common stock offered hereby to broker-dealers that in turn may sell such shares.

The selling stockholders may pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the shares of common stock offered hereby and owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell such shares of common stock from time to time pursuant to this prospectus or any amendment to this prospectus under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act, amending, if necessary, the list of selling stockholders to include the pledgee, transferee or other successors in interest as selling stockholders under this prospectus.

Table of Contents

donees, pledgees or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus.

The selling stockholders and any broker-dealer participating in the distribution of the shares of common stock offered hereby may be deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act, and any commission paid, or any discounts or concessions allowed to, any such broker-dealer may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. At the time a particular offering of the shares of common stock offered hereby is made, a prospectus supplement, if required, will be distributed which will set forth the aggregate amount of shares of common stock being offered and the terms of the offering, including the name or names of any broker-dealers or agents, any discounts, commissions and other terms constituting compensation from the selling stockholders and any discounts, commissions or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid to broker-dealers.

Under the securities laws of some states, the shares of common stock offered hereby may be sold in such states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states the shares of common stock offered hereby may not be sold unless such shares have been registered or qualified for sale in such state or an exemption from registration or qualification is available and is complied with.

There can be no assurance that the selling stockholders will sell any or all of the shares of common stock registered pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part.

The selling stockholders and any other person participating in such distribution will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act, and the rules and regulations thereunder, including, without limitation, Regulation M of the Exchange Act, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the shares of common stock offered hereby by the selling stockholders and any other participating person. Regulation M may also restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of the shares of common stock offered hereby to engage in market-making activities with respect to the shares of common stock offered hereby. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the shares of common stock offered hereby and the ability of any person or entity to engage in market-making activities with respect to the shares of common stock offered hereby.

Once sold under the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part, the shares of common stock offered hereby will be freely tradable in the hands of persons other than our affiliates.

Item 15. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

Section 102 of the Delaware General Corporation Law permits a corporation to eliminate the personal liability of directors of a corporation to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for a breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except where the director breached their duty of loyalty, failed to act in good faith, engaged in intentional misconduct or knowingly violated a law, authorized the payment of a dividend or approved a stock repurchase in violation of Delaware corporate law or obtained an improper personal benefit. The registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation provides that no director of the registrant shall be personally liable to it or its stockholders for monetary damages for any breach of fiduciary duty as director, notwithstanding any provision of law imposing such liability, except to the extent that the Delaware General Corporation Law prohibits the elimination or limitation of liability of directors for breaches of fiduciary duty.

Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a corporation has the power to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that the person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlements actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with an action, suit or proceeding to which they are or are threatened to be made a party by reason of such position, if such person acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, in any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful, except that, in the case of actions brought by or in the right of the corporation, no indemnification shall be made with respect to any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the Delaware Court of Chancery or other adjudicating court determines that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all of the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the Delaware Court of Chancery or such other court shall deem proper.

The registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation provides that the registrant will, to the fullest extent permitted by Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law and the registrant’s by-laws (each as amended from time to time), indemnify each person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that they are or were, or have agreed to become, a director or officer of the registrant, or are or were serving, or have agreed to serve, at the request of the registrant, as a director, officer,

partner, or trustee of, or in a similar capacity with, another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including any employee benefit plan (all such persons being referred to hereafter as an “Indemnitee”), or by reason of any action alleged to have been taken or omitted in such capacity, against all expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by, or on behalf of, the Indemnitee in connection with such action, suit or proceeding and any appeal therefrom. Such indemnification may include payment by the registrant of expenses in defending an action or proceeding in advance of the final disposition of such action or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by the Indemnitee (such undertaking acceptable by the registrant without reference to the financial ability of the Indemnitee) to repay such payment if it is ultimately determined that the Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification under the registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation; however, the registrant will not indemnify any person seeking indemnification in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such person, unless such initiation was approved by the registrant’s board of directors. Also, the indemnification rights provided in the registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation (i) are not exclusive of any other rights to which those indemnified may be entitled under any law, agreement or vote of stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise, and (ii) will inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such persons. The registrant may, to the extent authorized from time to time by its board of directors, grant indemnification rights to other employees of the registrant or other persons serving the registrant and such rights may be equivalent to, or greater or less than, those set forth in the registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation.

The registrant has entered into indemnification agreements with each of its directors. These agreements require the registrant to, among other things, indemnify each director to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law, including indemnification of expenses such as attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and settlement amounts incurred by the director in any action or proceeding, including any action or proceeding by or in right of the registrant, arising out of the person’s services as a director.

The registrant maintains a general liability insurance policy that covers certain liabilities of the registrant’s directors and officers arising out of claims based on acts or omissions in their capacities as directors or officers. In any underwriting agreement that the registrant enters into in connection with the sale of common stock being registered hereby, the underwriters will agree to indemnify, under certain conditions, the registrant, its directors, its officers and persons who control the registrant within the meaning of the Securities Act, against certain liabilities.

Item 16. Exhibits

A list of exhibits filed herewith is contained in the exhibit index that immediately precedes such exhibits and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 17. Undertakings.

(a)    The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

(1)    to file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement: (i) to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act; (ii) to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and (iii) to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement; provided, however, that paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii) do not apply if the

registration statement is on Form S-3 and the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement;

(2)    that, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof;

(3)    to remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering; and

(4)    that, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act to any purchaser: (i) each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and (ii) each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5) or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii) or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which the prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof; provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

(b)    The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that is incorporated by reference in this registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(c)    Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the provisions described under Item 15 above, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
