Asset Transfer Agreements
On January 22, 2013, Prosper Funding LLC (“Prosper Funding”) and Prosper Marketplace, Inc. (“PMI”) entered into a series of agreements that will result in PMI transferring the Prosper peer-to-peer lending platform to Prosper Funding, effective February 1, 2013. These agreements are described below. Copies of these agreements are attached as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
On January 22, 2013, Prosper Funding and PMI entered into an Asset Transfer Agreement (the “Asset Transfer Agreement”) pursuant to which PMI will (i) transfer the platform and substantially all of PMI’s assets and rights related to the operation of the platform to Prosper Funding and (ii) make a cash contribution to Prosper Funding of between $3 million and $6 million. Under the Asset Transfer Agreement, PMI will also transfer substantially all of its remaining assets to Prosper Funding, including (i) all outstanding PMI Notes issued by PMI under the Indenture (the “Indenture”) dated June 15, 2009 between PMI and Wells Fargo Bank, as trustee (the “Trustee”), (ii) all borrower loans held by PMI (the “PMI Borrower Loans”), (iii) all lender/borrower/group leader registration agreements related to the PMI Notes or the PMI Borrower Loans, and (iv) all documents and information related to the foregoing. The transfer of assets under the Asset Transfer Agreement is referred to as the “Asset Transfer.” Certain hardware and agreements relevant to the development, maintenance and use of the platform, including in relation to the origination, funding and servicing of borrower loans, and the issuance, funding and payment of the Notes, will not be transferred or assigned to Prosper Funding by PMI.
In the Asset Transfer Agreement, PMI agreed, among other things, to:
PMI will continue to service the PMI Borrower Loans pursuant to the Administration Agreement between PMI and Prosper Funding. Under the Administration Agreement, PMI agreed, among other things, to use commercially reasonable efforts to service and collect the PMI Borrower Loans and will indemnify Prosper Funding for any losses as a result of its breach of such obligation. Holders of the PMI Notes will be third party beneficiaries under the Asset Transfer Agreement and the Administration Agreement.
Supplemental Indenture and Amended and Restated Indenture
Under Section 4.1 of the Indenture, PMI may transfer substantially all of its assets to any person without the consent of the holders of the PMI Notes, provided that the transferee expressly assumes all of PMI’s obligations under the Indenture and the PMI Notes. In that case, the transferee will succeed to and be substituted for PMI, and PMI will be discharged from all of its obligations and covenants, under the Indenture and the PMI Notes.
Accordingly, on January 22, 2013, Prosper Funding, PMI and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee, entered into a supplemental indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture”) to PMI’s existing indenture that will, effective February 1, 2013 (i) effect such assumption, substitution and discharge (the “Note Assumption”), and (ii) amend and restate the Indenture to reflect the Note Assumption and to make certain other amendments to the Indenture as permitted therein (the “Amended and Restated Indenture”). Following the Note Assumption, Prosper Funding will be the obligor with respect to the PMI Notes and the Indenture, and PMI will no longer have any obligations with respect thereto. The Supplemental Indenture and the Amended and Restated Indenture (which includes the form of Note) are attached as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Under the Amended and Restated Indenture, if an event of default occurs with respect to a series of Notes due to a reason other than bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, then, upon notification by the Trustee or by holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series, the stated principal amount of such series of outstanding Notes and all interest accrued thereon shall become due and payable immediately. For a more complete discussion of the terms of the Amended and Restated Indenture, see the Registration Statement on Form S-1 filed by Prosper Funding and PMI (SEC File No. 333-179941 and 333-179941-01).
Prosper Funding has not engaged in any other transactions with its directors, executive officers, holders of more than 5% of its voting securities, or immediate family members or other affiliates of its directors, executive officers or 5% stockholders.
In connection with the entry into the Asset Transfer Agreement, the Supplemental Indenture and the Amended and Restated Indenture, Prosper Funding and PMI finalized and executed versions of other agreements relating to the transfer of the platform that have been previously filed by Prosper Funding and PMI, including the Administration Agreement between Prosper Funding and PMI; three agreements between Prosper Funding, PMI and FOLIOfn Investments, Inc.: an Amended and Restated Services Agreement, Amended and Restated Hosting Services Agreement and an Amended and Restated License Agreement; one agreement between Prosper Funding, PMI and Webbank: a Second Amended and Restated Loan Sale Agreement; and two agreements between PMI and Webbank: a Second Amended and Restated Loan Account Program Agreement and a Stand By Loan Purchase Agreement. Each of these executed agreements is filed as an exhibit to this Form 8-K, along with an amendment to Prosper Funding’s operating agreement dated January 10, 2013.
Recapitalization and Management Changes
As previously disclosed, on January 15, 2013, PMI entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain new investors and certain of its existing investors (each, a “Share Purchaser” and, collectively, the “Share Purchasers”), pursuant to which PMI issued and sold to such Share Purchasers (either directly or through certain of their respective affiliates) 138,681,680 shares of PMI’s Series A Preferred Stock (the “Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of $20 million. The Share Purchasers included: SC Prosper Holdings LLC, Merlin Acorn, LP, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, TomorrowVentures 2010 Fund, LLC, QED Fund I, L.P. and Eric & Erica Schwartz Investments LLC.
Under the terms of the Shares, the Share Purchasers have the right to convert the Shares into PMI common stock at any time. In addition, the Shares automatically convert into common stock (i) immediately prior to the closing of an IPO that values PMI at least at $200 million and that results in aggregate proceeds to PMI of at least $40 million or (ii) upon a written request from the holders of at least 70% of the voting power of the outstanding preferred stock (on an as-converted basis). In addition, if a holder of the Shares has converted any of the Shares, then all of such holder’s shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock also will be converted upon a liquidation event. In lieu of any fractional shares of common stock to which a holder would otherwise be entitled, PMI shall pay such holder cash in an amount equal to the fair market value of such fractional shares, as determined by PMI’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). At present, the Series A Preferred Stock converts into PMI common stock at a 1:1 ratio while the Series A-1 Preferred Stock converts into PMI common stock at a 1,000,000:1 ratio.
In connection with that sale, PMI also issued 51,171,951 shares at the par value $0.001 per share of Series A-1 convertible preferred stock (Series A-1 Preferred Stock) to certain previous holders of PMI’s preferred stock who participated in the sale. The Series A-1 shares established certain liquidation rights, have no voting rights and are convertible into one share of PMI common stock for every one million shares of Series A-1. PMI allocated the fair value of the shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock at the par value of $.001 per share from the proceeds of Series A. Upon issuance of PMI Series A and Series A-1 Preferred Stock, all of PMI’s preferred stock existing prior to such issuance was converted into PMI common stock at a 1:1 ratio if the holder of the preferred stock participated in this offering or at a 10:1 ratio if the holder of the preferred stock did not so participate.
As a result of the recapitalization described above, there have been substantial changes to the management team at PMI, as well as to PMI’s capital structure. These changes are discussed below.

Principal Security Holders of PMI following the Recapitalization
The following table sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership of PMI’s common stock as of January 23, 2013, by:
Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC. These rules generally attribute beneficial ownership of securities to persons who possess sole or shared voting power or investment power with respect to those securities and include shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of stock options or warrants that are immediately exercisable or exercisable within 60 days after January 23, 2013. Except as otherwise indicated in the footnotes to the table below, all of the shares reflected in the table are shares of common stock and all persons listed below have sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares beneficially owned by them, subject to applicable community property laws. The information is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose.
Percentage ownership calculations are based on 64,919,447 shares of common stock outstanding as of January 23, 2013. Each share of PMI preferred stock is convertible at any time at the discretion of the holder. Shares of PMI’s Series A Preferred Stock convert into shares of PMI common stock at a ratio of 1 to 1. Shares of PMI’s Series A-1 Preferred Stock convert into shares of PMI common stock at a ratio of 1,000,000 to 1.
In computing the number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by a person or entity and the percentage ownership of that person or entity, PMI deemed outstanding all shares of common stock subject to options and warrants held by that person or entity that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of January 23, 2013. PMI did not deem these shares outstanding, however, for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person. Beneficial ownership representing less than 1.0% is denoted with an asterisk (*). Except as otherwise indicated in the footnotes to the table below, addresses of named beneficial owners and officers are in care of Prosper Marketplace, Inc., 111 Sutter Street, 22nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94104.
Executive Officer Compensation
Summary Compensation Table
The following table provides information regarding the compensation earned during the year ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012 by each person serving during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 as PMI’s principal executive officer or other executive officer, who are collectively referred to as PMI’s “named executive officers.”
(1) Calculated in accordance with ASC 718 using the Black-Scholes model without consideration of forfeitures for outstanding options to purchase shares of PMI’s common stock. There were no forfeitures by the above named executives during 2012 and 2011. The key assumptions used in PMI’s ASC 718 calculation are discussed in Note 2 of PMI’s consolidated financial statements located in its annual report on Form 10-K/A.
(2) Mr. Larsen resigned as CEO and President of PMI as of March 15, 2012. Ms. Lepore was appointed to serve as PMI’s acting Chief Executive Officer, effective as of the same date.

Narrative Discussion of the Summary Compensation Table
The executive officers named above have been granted stock option awards upon employment with PMI and for merit increases as further discussed below under “Outstanding Equity Awards at December 31, 2012.” PMI has no formal incentive compensation programs in place for its officers. PMI does not believe that its compensation policies promote inappropriate or excessive risk taking. The compensation it pays to its executive officers consists of three components: base salary, a discretionary bonus and stock option awards. Base salary is a fixed amount, and is not tied to any metric relating to the performance of PMI’s business as a whole. Discretionary bonuses, which PMI has only paid out on a limited number of occasions, also are not tied to any specific metrics regarding PMI’s performance. Except for the options granted to Mr. Larsen and Ms. Lepore, PMI’s stock option awards are generally structured so that they vest over multiple years, which align the interests of the grantees with the long-term interests of PMI’s stockholders. The options granted to Mr. Larsen vest normally over multiple years, but will vest immediately if Mr. Larsen ceases to be Chairman of the Board at PMI’s request.1
The options granted to Ms. Lepore vested as follows: (i) 50% vested immediately upon grant, (ii) approximately 16.67% vested upon the completion of four months of employment, (iii) approximately 16.67% vested upon the completion of five months of employment and (iv) approximately 16.67% vested upon the completion of six months of employment. Any incentives awarded and salary adjustments to the executive officers named above are made at the discretion of PMI’s compensation committee. The compensation committee reviews and approves all compensation, including option awards, for PMI’s executive team. There were no forfeitures by any of the above named executives for the year ended December 31, 2012.
Mr. Larsen was granted 623,353 share option awards on September 20, 2011 with an exercise price of $0.12, which are subject to the terms and conditions of the 2005 Stock Option Plan as set forth below.
Ms. Lepore was granted 224,063 share option awards on March 15, 2012 with an exercise price of $0.17, which are subject to the terms and conditions of the 2005 Stock Option Plan as set forth below.
Mr. Inglis was granted 200,000 share option awards on July 19, 2012 with an exercise price of $0.17 and was granted 382,618 share option awards on September 20, 2011 with an exercise price of $0.12, which are subject to terms and conditions of the 2005 Stock Option Plan as set forth below.
Mr. Toms was granted 982,926 share option awards on June 27, 2011 with an exercise price of $0.12, which are subject to the terms and conditions of the 2005 Stock Option Plan as set forth below.
All stock options granted to PMI’s named executive officers are incentive stock options, to the extent permissible under the Internal Revenue Code, as amended. All equity awards to PMI’s employees and directors were granted at no less than the fair market value of PMI’s common stock on the date of each award. In the absence of a public trading market for PMI’s common stock, PMI’s board of directors has determined the fair market value of PMI’s common stock in good faith based upon consideration of a number of relevant factors including the status of PMI’s development efforts, financial status and market conditions. See “Item 15. - Note to Consolidated Financial Statements” located in PMI’s annual report on Form 10-K/A.

As of December 31, 2012, except for Mr. Larsen’s Separation Agreement, there were no material contracts, agreements, plans or arrangements, written or unwritten, that provided for payments or stock option awards to the named executive officers above in connection with their respective resignation, retirement or other termination. All options granted to PMI’s executive officers, except as otherwise provided, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the 2005 Stock Option Plan as set forth below.
As reflected in the table below, PMI occasionally grants options to its directors for their service on the Board but does not otherwise compensate directors for their service on the board.
From time to time, PMI reimburses certain of its non-employee directors for travel and other expenses incurred in connection with attending board meetings. PMI has agreed to reimburse certain of its directors for legal expenses incurred by them stemming from the class action lawsuit as described in the “Information About Prosper Marketplace, Inc.—Legal Proceedings” section included in PMI’s annual report on Form 10-K/A, pursuant to PMI’s indemnification agreements with its directors as discussed below.
Employee Benefit Plans
Stock Option Plan
In 2005, PMI’s stockholders approved the adoption of the 2005 Stock Option Plan. On December 1, 2010, PMI’s stockholders approved the adoption of the Amended and Restated 2005 Stock Plan (as amended and restated, the “2005 Plan”). The 2005 Plan will terminate upon the earliest to occur of (i) December 1, 2020, (ii) the date on which all shares of common stock available for issuance under the 2005 Plan have been issued as fully vested shares of common stock, and (iii) the termination of all outstanding stock options granted pursuant to the 2005 Plan. The 2005 Plan provides for the grant of the following:
Share Reserve. On June 3, 2011 PMI’s Board of Directors and stockholders approved an amendment to the 2005 Plan to increase the total pool of shares subject to options issuable under the 2005 Plan by 3,550,875 shares. On September 20, 2011 and October 17, 2011, respectively, PMI’s Board and stockholders approved another amendment to the 2005 Plan increasing the share pool by 1,000,000 shares. On May 10, 2012 and July 17, 2012, respectively, PMI’s Board’s Compensation Committee and stockholders approved another amendment to the 2005 Plan increasing the share pool by 1,700,000 shares. On January 14, 2013, PMI’s Board and stockholders approved another amendment to the 2005 Plan increasing the share pool by 56,483,417 shares. As of the date hereof, an aggregate of 71,723,081 shares of PMI’s common stock are authorized for issuance under the 2005 Plan. Shares of PMI’s common stock subject to options that have expired or otherwise terminate under the 2005 Plan without having been exercised in full will again become available for grant under the plan. Shares of PMI’s common stock issued under the 2005 Plan may include previously unissued shares or reacquired shares bought on the market or otherwise.
Administration. The 2005 Plan is administered by PMI’s board of directors, which may in turn delegate authority to administer the plan to a committee (the “Administrator”). Subject to the terms of the 2005 Plan, the Administrator determines recipients, the numbers and types of stock awards to be granted and the terms and conditions of the stock awards, including the period of their exercisability and vesting. Subject to the limitations set forth below, the Administrator will also determine the exercise price of options granted under the 2005 Plan.
Stock options will be granted pursuant to stock option agreements. The exercise price for ISOs cannot be less than 100% of the fair market value of the common stock subject to the option on the date of grant. The exercise price for NSOs cannot be less than 85% of the fair market value of the common stock subject to the option on the date of grant. Options granted under the 2005 Plan will vest at the rate specified in the option agreement. Unvested shares of PMI’s common stock issued in connection with an early exercise may be repurchased by PMI. In general, the term of stock options granted under the 2005 Plan may not exceed ten years. Unless the terms of an optionholder’s stock option agreement provide for earlier or later termination, if an optionholder’s service relationship with PMI, or any affiliate of PMI, ceases due to disability or death, the optionholder, or his or her beneficiary, may exercise any vested options for up to 12 months after the date the service relationship ends, unless the terms of the stock option agreement provide for earlier termination. If an optionholder’s service relationship with PMI, or any affiliate of PMI, ceases without cause for any reason other than disability or death, the optionholder may exercise any vested options for up to three months after the date the service relationship ends, unless the terms of the stock option agreement provide for a longer or shorter period to exercise the option.
Acceptable forms of consideration for the purchase of PMI’s common stock under the 2005 Plan, to be determined at the discretion of the Administrator at the time of grant, include (i) cash or (ii) the tendering of other shares of common stock or the attestation to the ownership of shares of common stock that otherwise would be tendered to PMI in exchange for PMI’s reducing the number of shares necessary for payment in full of the option price for the shares so purchased (provided that the shares tendered or attested to in exchange for the shares issued under the 2005 Plan may not be shares of restricted stock at the time they are tendered or attested to), or (iii) any combination of (i) and (ii) above.
Generally, an optionholder may not transfer a stock option other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution or a domestic relations order. However, an optionholder may designate a beneficiary who may exercise the option following the optionholder’s death.
Limitations. The aggregate fair market value, determined at the time of grant, of shares of PMI’s common stock with respect to ISOs that are exercisable for the first time by an optionholder during any calendar year under all of PMI’s stock plans may not exceed $100,000. The options or portions of options that exceed this limit are treated as NSOs. No ISO may be granted to any person who, at the time of the grant, owns or is deemed to own stock possessing more than 10% of PMI’s total combined voting power unless the following conditions are satisfied:
Option Grants to Outside Directors. Options may be granted to outside directors in accordance with the policies established from time to time by the Administrator specifying the number of shares, if any, to be subject to each award and the time(s) at which such awards shall be granted. All options granted to outside directors shall be NSOs and, except as otherwise provided, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the 2005 Plan.
Adjustments. In the event that there is a specified type of change in PMI’s capital structure not involving the receipt of consideration by PMI, such as a stock split or stock dividend, the number of shares reserved under the 2005 Plan and the maximum number and class of shares issuable to an individual in the aggregate, and the exercise price or strike price, if applicable, of all outstanding stock awards will be appropriately adjusted.
Dissolution or Liquidation. In the event of a proposed dissolution or liquidation of PMI, the Administrator shall provide written notice to each participant at least 20 days prior to the effective date of such proposed transaction. To the extent it has not been previously exercised, an award will terminate immediately prior to the consummation of such proposed action. The Administrator may specify the effect of a liquidation or dissolution on any award of restricted stock or other award at the time of grant of such award.
Reorganization. Upon the occurrence of a Reorganization Event (as defined below), each outstanding option shall be assumed or an equivalent option substituted by the successor corporation, except in the event that the successor corporation does not assume the option or an equivalent option is not substituted, then the Administrator shall notify the optionholder that one of the following will occur:
A “Reorganization Event” is defined as (i) a merger or consolidation of PMI with or into another entity, as a result of which all of PMI’s common stock is converted into or exchanged for the right to receive cash, securities or other property or (ii) any exchange of all of PMI’s common stock for cash, securities or other property pursuant to a share exchange transaction.
PMI maintains through its payroll and benefits service provider, a defined contribution employee retirement plan that covers all of its employees meeting certain eligibility requirements. The 401(k) plan is designed to provide tax-deferred retirement benefits in accordance with the provisions of Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code.
