Nextdoor, Inc. (“Nextdoor”), the neighborhood network, and Khosla Ventures Acquisition Co. II (Nasdaq:KVSB) (“KVSB”), a special purpose acquisition company sponsored by an affiliate of Khosla Ventures, LLC (“Khosla Ventures”), today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Nextdoor would become a publicly listed company. Upon closing of the proposed transaction, the combined company will be listed under the ticker symbol “KIND”.

Concurrently with the consummation of the transaction, additional investors have committed to purchase shares of Class A common stock of KVSB at $10.00 per share in a private placement (the “PIPE”) to occur concurrently with the proposed business combination. The upsized $270 million PIPE investment includes participation from institutional investors, including funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc. , Baron Capital Group, Dragoneer, Soroban Capital, accounts advised by ARK Invest, and ION Asset Management, in addition to existing Nextdoor investors Tiger Global and Hedosophia. Nextdoor CEO Sarah Friar and Khosla Ventures affiliates each participated in the PIPE financing. Approximately $416 million in cash held in the KVSB trust account, together with the approximately $270 million in PIPE proceeds, excluding transaction expenses, will be used to support new and existing growth initiatives. All references to cash on the balance sheet , available cash from the trust account and retained transaction proceeds are subject to any redemptions by public stockholders of KVSB and payment of transaction expenses.
