Item 3.02Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On September 12, 2023 (the “Closing”), Bridger Aerospace Group Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) acquired 100% of the outstanding equity interests of Ignis Technologies, Inc. (the “Transaction”). The aggregate consideration for the Transaction is $12.0 million, payable in unregistered shares of Bridger’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), consisting of $3 million payable at Closing and $9 million of contingent earn-out consideration. At the Closing, 426,531 restricted shares of Common Stock were issued to the Ignis shareholders (with the price per share determined based upon a volume-weighted average per-share price (VWAP) of the Common Stock for the 30 consecutive trading days ended September 11, 2023). The remaining $9 million of Common Stock consideration is contingent upon the achievement of certain operational milestones and, assuming achievement of such milestones, will be issued to the Ignis shareholders in 2024, 2025 and 2026, with the price per share determined based upon a trailing 120-day VWAP of the Common Stock at the time of each issuance. All of the shares of Common Stock to be issued in the Transaction will be subject to transfer restrictions for a 12-month period after each issuance, with 1/12th of the total shares of Common Stock vesting each month over the one-year period after each issuance.

None of the shares of Common Stock issued or issuable in connection with the Transaction was or will be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), at the time of sale in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. Recipients of shares of Common Stock in connection with the Transaction will have customary resale registration rights with respect to such shares of Common Stock pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Transaction.
