(3)Each Class A common share is entitled to one vote, and each Class B common share is entitled to ten votes. The percentage reported does not reflect the ten for one voting power of the Class B common shares because the Class B common shares are treated as converted into Class A common shares for the purpose of this report.

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

The information set forth in Item 4 hereof is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 3, as applicable. The securities described herein held by XP Control LLC were contributed by XP Controle Participações S.A. to XP Control LLC as a result of the XP Controle Corporate Reorganization (as described below).

 

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

 

XP Control LLC was formed and registered on August 9, 2021, as part of a corporate restructuring for the internationalization of the Group aiming at bringing synergy and optimization to the business (the “XP Controle Corporate Reorganization”).

 

On December 13, 2021, XP Controle Participações S.A. (fully owned by XP Control Controlling Shareholders) contributed the total aggregate amount of 108,631,284 Shares to XP Control LLC. Subsequently, on December 14, 2021, XP Controle Participações S.A. effected a capital reduction and distributed its interests in XP Control LLC to its shareholders, the XP Control Controlling Shareholders, which in turn transferred their interests in XP Control LLC to their personal investment companies. The XP Controle Corporate Reorganization changes the direct holder of the 108,631,284 Shares contributed by XP Controle Participações S.A. to XP Control LLC.

 

On February 24, 2022, XP Control LLC entered into a variable postpaid share forward confirmation (the “Forward Confirmation”) with Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc. (the “Forward Counterparty”) that relates in the aggregate to 5,255,558 Shares (the “Forward Shares”). The purpose of the Forward Confirmation is to hedge liabilities denominated in Brazilian Reais related to the repurchase of preferred shares of XP Controle Participações S.A. for payment in instalments in September 2024 and September 2025. Such liabilities were transferred to XP Control LLC as part of the XP Controle Corporate Reorganization. See Item 6.

 

Other than as set forth in this Statement, the Reporting Person has no present plans or proposals which relate to or would result in any of the matters set forth in this Item 4.

 

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

(a)and (b) The information contained on the cover pages to this Statement is incorporated herein by reference.

 

(c)Except for the transactions described in Item 4 of this Statement, the Reporting Person has not engaged in any transaction during the past 60 days involving common shares of the Issuer. 

 

(d)To the best knowledge of the Reporting Person, no other person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Person.

 

(e)Not applicable.

 

Item 6.Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

 

The information set forth in Items 4 and 5 hereof is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 6, as applicable.

 

On December 1, 2019, the Issuer entered into a registration rights agreement, as amended (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), with the Reporting Person (including XP Control LLC as XP Controle Participações S.A.’s successor in relation to its shares due to the XP Controle Reorganization), Itaúsa, ITB Holding Brasil Participações Ltda., São Carlos Investimentos Ltd., São Marcos Investimentos Ltd and GA Bermuda, which grants the Reporting Person, Itaúsa, ITB Holding Brasil Participações Ltda., São Carlos Investimentos Ltd., São Marcos Investimentos Ltd and GA Bermuda certain rights to register the sale of Shares.

 

On February 24, 2022, XP Control LLC entered into a Forward Confirmation with Forward Counterparty that relates in the aggregate to 5,255,558 Shares (the “Forward Shares”).

 

 

 

Pursuant to the Forward Confirmation, XP Control LLC has agreed to sell to the Forward Counterparty up to the number of Forward Shares over two sets of settlement dates expected to occur in September 2024 and September 2025. If XP Control LLC elects, or is deemed to have elected, full physical settlement under the Forward Confirmation, it will deliver the full number of Forward Shares against payment by the Forward Counterparty of a purchase price per share that will be no less than a floor price, to be the product of 100.0% and the volume-weighted average price per Share at which the Forward Counterparty establishes its initial hedge of the equity price risk undertaken by it with respect to the Forward Confirmation (the “Initial Share Price”), and no higher than a cap price, to be, for the Forward Shares settling in September 2024, the product of 166.0% and the Initial Share Price, and, for the Forward Shares settling in September 2025, the product of 201.0% and the Initial Share Price (each subject to adjustment, and as more specifically determined as set forth in the Forward Confirmation; respectively, the “Floor Price” and the “Cap Price”). If XP Control LLC elects physical settlement under the Forward Confirmation, it will deliver a variable number of shares to the Forward Counterparty at settlement, determined pursuant to a formula, against payment by the Forward Counterparty of the Floor Price per share. XP Control LLC will also have the right to elect cash settlement under the Forward Confirmation, in which case it would not be obligated to deliver any of the Forward Shares to the Forward Counterparty. In each case, XP Control LLC’s and the Forward Counterparty’s obligations under the Forward Confirmation will be based on the relationship between the market price of the Shares, as determined under the Forward Confirmation during the relevant valuation period, and the Floor Price and the Cap Price, subject to certain modifications and adjustments.

 

To secure XP Control LLC’s obligations under the Forward Confirmation, XP Control LLC has pledged the Forward Shares to the Forward Counterparty pursuant to the Forward Confirmation and granted to the Forward Counterparty a rehypothecation right permitting it to borrow, sell and transfer the pledged Forward Shares. The Forward Counterparty will exercise its rehypothecation rights with respect to the Forward Shares pledged to it in full by borrowing and selling a number of Forward Shares necessary to establish its initial hedge of the equity price risk undertaken by it with respect to the Forward Confirmation, in accordance with Rule 144 under the Securities Act, and advises XP Control LLC that the Forward Counterparty intends to borrow and sell the remaining Forward Shares from time to time in accordance with Rule 144, and that it expects to purchase an equal number of Shares in the open market over the same period of time. So long as any of the Forward Shares have been rehypothecated by the Forward Counterparty, XP Control LLC will not have voting rights with respect to those Forward Shares.

 

At the settlement of the Forward Confirmation, XP Control LLC will net its delivery obligations under the Forward Confirmation against the return obligation of the Forward Counterparty with respect to the rehypothecated Forward Shares, unless XP Control LLC elects to cash settle the Forward Confirmation.

 

The Forward Shares pledged by XP Control LLC to the Forward Counterparty were converted from 5,255,558 Class B common shares previously held by XP Control LLC.

 

The foregoing description of the Forward Confirmation and related transactions do not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Forward Confirmation, a form of which was filed as Exhibit C to Amendment No. 1 (filed with the SEC on March 7, 2022).

 

Except as described above or elsewhere in this Statement or incorporated by reference in this Statement, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships (legal or otherwise) between the Reporting Person and, to the best of their knowledge, any of the persons named in Exhibit A to this Statement or between the Reporting Person and any other person or, to the best of its knowledge, any person named in Exhibit A to this Statement and any other person with respect to any securities of the Issuer, including, but not limited to, transfer or voting of any securities, finder’s fees, joint ventures, loan or option arrangements, puts or calls, guarantees of profits, division of profits or losses, or the giving or withholding of proxies.
