Beneficial ownership of the 49,067,354 shares of Class A Common Stock (as defined below) referenced above is being reported hereunder solely because Mobile Mini, Inc. may be deemed to have beneficial ownership of such shares of Class A Common Stock as a result of the Voting Agreement (as defined below) with certain stockholders of WillScot Corporation. In addition, as a result of the Voting Agreement, Mobile Mini may be deemed to have beneficial ownership of 8,024,419 unregistered shares of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of WillScot Corporation. Pursuant to the Voting Agreement, Mobile Mini has a total of 48.24% of the voting power of the issued and outstanding common stock of WillScot Corporation as of the date of this Schedule 13D. The beneficial ownership percentages in this Schedule 13D do not take into account the Share Exchange (as defined below) or the Warrant Exercise (as defined below) because such events are not anticipated to occur prior to the vote on the Merger at the special meeting of the stockholders of WillScot Corporation. Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission by Mobile Mini, Inc. that it is the beneficial owner of such shares of Class A Common Stock for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership thereof is expressly disclaimed.

Item 2. Identity and Background

(a) – (c), (f)

This Statement is being filed by Mobile Mini, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Mobile Mini” or the “Reporting Person”). The principal business of Mobile Mini is providing modular space and portable storage solutions. The principal business address and principal office address of Mobile Mini is 4646 E. Van Buren Street, Suite 400, Phoenix, Arizona 85008.

The name, present principal occupation or employment and name, principal business and address of any corporation or other organization in which such employment is conducted and the citizenship of each director and executive officer of the Reporting Person is set forth on Schedule A hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.

(d) – (e)

During the last five years, neither the Reporting Person no, to the knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of the persons set forth on Schedule A hereto have been: (i) convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

On March 1, 2020, concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement (as defined below), and as an inducement for Mobile Mini to enter into the Merger Agreement, the TDR Parties (as defined below), which currently beneficially own approximately 44.48% of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, entered into the Voting Agreement (as defined below), pursuant to which Mobile Mini may be deemed to beneficially own as of the date of that agreement 49,067,354 shares of Class A Common Stock. The beneficial ownership percentages described in this Schedule 13D do not assume the occurrence of the Share Exchange (as defined below) or the Warrant Exercise (as defined below). For a description of the Share Exchange and the Warrant Exercise, see Item 5 below, which descriptions are incorporated by reference in response to this Item 3.

As described in response to Items 4 and 5 below, the shares of the Class A Common Stock beneficially owned by the TDR Parties (such shares, the “Voting Agreement Shares”) have not been purchased by the Reporting Person, and thus no funds were used for such purpose.

For a description of the Voting Agreement, see Item 4 below, which description is incorporated by reference in response to this Item 3.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

The Merger Agreement

On March 1, 2020, Mobile Mini entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with the Issuer and Picasso Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer (“Merger Sub”). Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into Mobile Mini, with Mobile Mini surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer (the “Merger”).


Page 4 of 8

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of Mobile Mini common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Mobile Mini Common Stock”), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares held by Mobile Mini as treasury stock or held by its subsidiaries), will be converted into the right to receive 2.4050 shares of Class A Common Stock (the “Merger Consideration”). Immediately thereafter, as contemplated by the Merger Agreement and the amended and restated certificate of incorporation of the Issuer to be filed at the Effective Time, all outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock will be converted into shares of common stock of the Issuer.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to the Mobile Mini’s Form 8-K, filed on March 5, 2020, and incorporated herein by reference.

The Voting Agreement

Concurrently with the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement, Mobile Mini entered into a voting agreement (the “Voting Agreement”) with TDR Capital LLP (“TDR Capital”), TDR Capital II Holdings L.P. (“TDR Holdings”), and Sapphire Holding S.à.r.l. (“Sapphire Holdings”), an affiliate of the investment funds managed by TDR Capital (together with TDR Capital and TDR Holdings, the “TDR Parties”) whereby Sapphire Holdings has agreed, among other things, to vote all of its shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Issuer (the “Class B Common Stock”) in favor of the issuance of the Merger Consideration in connection with the Merger and the adoption of the amended and restated certificate of incorporation for the Issuer, effective upon consummation of the merger (the “Charter Amendment” and together with the issuance of Merger Consideration, the “Issuer Proposals”).

The Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement further provide that Sapphire Holdings will exchange all of its shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“WSHC Stock”), of William Scotsman Holdings Corp., a direct subsidiary of the Issuer (“Holdings”), prior to the Effective Time, for shares of Class A Common Stock, at an exchange ratio of 1.3261 times, without any subsequent adjustment, and, concurrently with such exchange, all issued and outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock (which are held by Sapphire Holdings) will be cancelled (the “Class B Cancellation”) and each of the existing shareholders agreement of Holdings and the exchange agreement of Holdings will automatically terminate and be of no further force and effect. At the Effective Time, and as a result of the Class B Cancellation and the adoption by the Issuer of an amended and restated certificate of incorporation as set forth in the Merger Agreement, the combined company will have a single series of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, outstanding.

The Voting Agreement requires (i) Sapphire Holdings to vote all of its shares of the Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, (A) in favor of the Issuer Proposals, (B) against any competing transaction and, in the event of any adverse recommendation by the Board of Directors of the Issuer to its stockholders involving or related to a Parent Intervening Event (as defined in the Merger Agreement), in the same proportion as the votes cast by the other stockholders of the Issuer and (C) against any corporate action which would prevent or materially delay the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement or otherwise result in a material breach of any of the Issuer’s or Sapphire Holdings’ obligations under the Merger Agreement and Voting Agreement, as applicable, (ii) that Sapphire Holdings not transfer its shares of its Class A Common Stock, Class B Common Stock or WSHC Stock without the prior written consent of Mobile Mini, with certain limited exceptions, and (iii) that each of the TDR Parties not solicit an alternative acquisition transaction or participate in discussions or negotiations regarding an alternative acquisition transaction, except as authorized by the Board of Directors of the Issuer in certain circumstances. The Voting Agreement will terminate upon the earliest of the Effective Time and termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms. In addition, Sapphire Holding may terminate its voting obligations under the Voting Agreement following an adverse recommendation of the Issuer’s Board of Directors involving or relating to a Parent Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), any change to the Merger Consideration that is adverse to Sapphire Holdings or any other amendment to the Merger Agreement that is adverse to Sapphire Holdings in any material respect.

The foregoing description of the Voting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Voting Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Mobile Mini’s Form 8-K, filed on March 5, 2020, and incorporated herein by reference.

The transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement may, if consummated in accordance with its terms, result in any or all of the actions contemplated by Item 4 of this Statement, including, without limitation, (i) the Merger, as a result of which Mobile Mini would become a subsidiary of the Issuer, (ii) the cessation of certain of the Issuer’s existing director’s role as a director of the Issuer and changes in one or more members of management of the Issuer, (iii) material changes in the capitalization, dividend policy, business structure and corporate structure of the Issuer and (iv) the restatement of the Issuer’s charter and bylaws. Except as set forth in this Item 4 and in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement, neither Mobile Mini nor, to the knowledge of Mobile Mini, any of the persons set forth on Schedule A hereto, has any plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the actions specified in Item 4 of this Statement (although Mobile Mini and each person listed on Schedule A hereto reserves the right to develop such plans).

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a) – (b)

Based on the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed by the Issuer on March 2, 2020, there were 110,316,368 shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding and 8,024,419 shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding as of February 27, 2020.

Immediately prior to the execution of the Voting Agreement, the Reporting Person did not own any shares of Class A Common Stock. However, as a result of entering into the Voting Agreement on March 1, 2020, under the definition of “beneficial ownership” as set forth in Rule 13d-3 under the Act, the Reporting Person may be deemed to have shared beneficial ownership with respect to a total of 49,067,354 shares of Class A Common Stock, which represents in the aggregate approximately 44.48% of the shares of Class A Common Stock deemed to be outstanding as described in the prior paragraph. Items 7 through 11 of the cover page of this Statement and the footnotes thereto are incorporated herein by reference.

The beneficial ownership percentages described in this Schedule 13D do not take into account (i) the exchange of the shares of WSHC Stock into a corresponding number of shares of Class A Common Stock at an exchange ratio of 1:1.3261 shares of Class A Common Stock for each share of WSHC Stock (the “Share Exchange”) as contemplated by the Voting Agreement and Sapphire Holdings’ agreement with the Issuer and (ii) the 4,850,000 warrants held by the TDR Parties which can be exercised for 2,425,000 shares of Class A Common Stock (the “Warrant Exercise”).

Except as set forth above, neither the Reporting Person nor, to the Reporting Person’s knowledge, any of the persons named in Schedule A hereto beneficially owns any shares of Class A Common Stock.

 

   

Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that the Reporting Person is the beneficial owner of the Voting Agreement Shares for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act, or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed.

 

  (c)

Except for the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement as set forth in this Item 5, neither the Reporting Person nor, to the knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of the persons set forth on Schedule A hereto has effected any transaction in the shares of Class A common Stock during the past 60 days.

 

  (d)

Except with reference to the Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement and the transactions contemplated by those agreements, and except as set forth in this Statement, neither the Reporting Person nor, to the knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of the persons set forth on Schedule A hereto has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the securities of the Issuer reported herein.

 

  (e)

Not applicable.
