Dutch Bros Inc. Announces Launch of Secondary Public Offering of Class A Common Stock

Dutch Bros Inc. (NYSE: BROS; “Dutch Bros” or the “Company”) today announced commencement of a registered underwritten public offering of its Class A common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”), by certain selling stockholders associated with TSG Consumer Partners, L.P. (the “Selling Stockholders”). The Selling Stockholders intend to offer 8,762,700 shares of Common Stock pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Substantially concurrently with the consummation of this offering, the Selling Stockholders expect to distribute in kind securities convertible into 723,813 shares of Common Stock to certain of their indirect members who have elected to maintain their existing interests and to not participate in this offering. The shares distributed in kind will be subject to the lock-up restrictions described in the section titled “Underwriting” in the prospectus supplement. The offering is not conditioned upon the completion of distribution in kind.

Dutch Bros is not offering any shares of Common Stock in this offering and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock by the Selling Stockholders but will bear the costs associated with the sale of such shares, other than any underwriting discounts and commissions.

Upon completion of this offering, Sean Sullivan, the remaining director nominated by the selling stockholders, is expected to resign from the Dutch Bros board of directors, and pursuant to the stockholders agreement that Dutch Bros previously entered with the certain affiliates of our co-founder and the selling stockholders and Dutch Bros’ amended and restated certificate of incorporation, the selling stockholders will no longer have the right to designate a director to the Dutch Bros board of directors and the stockholders agreement will be terminated.

Additionally, upon completion of this offering, the aggregate number of outstanding shares of Dutch Bros’ Class C common stock and Class D common stock will collectively represent less than 5% of the aggregate number of the outstanding shares of all classes common stock of Dutch Bros and therefore, pursuant to the Dutch Bros’ amended and restated certificate of incorporation, the number of votes per share of the remaining outstanding shares of Dutch Bros’ Class C common stock will be reduced to one vote per share on a future date to be fixed by the Dutch Bros board of directors and the remaining outstanding shares of Dutch Bros’ Class D common stock immediately prior to the closing of this offering will convert into an equal number of shares of Common Stock upon the closing of this offering.

BofA Securities and Jefferies are acting as joint book-running managers for the proposed offering. The underwriters may offer the shares of Common Stock from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the New York Stock Exchange, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices, or at negotiated prices, subject to the underwriters’ right to reject any order in whole or in part.

A shelf registration statement on Form S-3 relating to Dutch Bros’ securities, including the Common Stock, has been filed with the SEC and became effective upon such filing. The proposed offering will be made only by means of a free writing prospectus, a prospectus supplement and an accompanying prospectus. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus, the documents incorporated by reference therein and any other documents that Dutch Bros may file with the SEC for more complete information about Dutch Bros and the proposed offering.
