(1) In connection with the merger described in that certain Business Combination Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of September 8, 2021, by and among Novus Capital Corporation II, now known as Energy Vault Holdings, Inc. ("Energy Vault Holdings") (the "Issuer"), NCCII Merger Corp. ("Merger Sub"), and Energy Vault, Inc. ("Energy Vault"), pursuant to which Merger Sub merged with and into Energy Vault, with Energy Vault surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer (the "Merger"), the Reporting Person received restricted stock units ("RSUs") in Issuer in exchange for, and pursuant to the assumption and conversion of, 40,000 restricted stock units of Energy Vault.
(2) Subject to the satisfaction of both a liquidity event requirement and service-based requirement, each RSU represents the contingent right to receive one share of the Issuer's Common Stock. The liquidity event requirement was satisfied upon the closing of the Merger. The RSUs will accordingly vest upon the satisfaction of the service-based requirement, which provides that the RSUs will vest or have vested as follows: with respect to 50% of the RSUs on the closing of the Merger, with respect to 25% of the RSUs on August 31, 2019 and with respect to 1/48th of the RSUs each month thereafter, subject to the Reporting Person's continuous service with the Issuer through each vesting date.
