Director Resignation

On November 11, 2021, Jan Hammer notified Robinhood Markets, Inc. ("Robinhood" or "the Company”) of his resignation as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors (the "Board"), effective as of December 31, 2021.

Mr. Hammer's resignation was not the result of any disagreement between Mr. Hammer and the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

Appointment of New Director

On November 15, 2021, the Board appointed Frances Frei to the Board, effective as of November 15, 2021. The Board also appointed her to serve on the Audit Committee and the People and Compensation Committee, commencing concurrently with her Board service. Professor Frei is a Class II director, with an initial term expiring at Robinhood’s 2023 annual meeting of stockholders. In connection with Professor Frei’s appointment, the Board increased the number of directors on the Board from eight to nine.

Professor Frei will participate in Robinhood’s Non-Employee Director Compensation Program as described under “Director Compensation” in the Company’s final IPO prospectus, dated July 28, 2021, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 30, 2021. In addition, the Company has entered into an indemnification agreement with Professor Frei, the form of which appears as Exhibit 10.1 to Robinhood’s Amendment No. 1 to Form S-1 Registration Statement filed July 19, 2021.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Professor Frei and any other persons pursuant to which she was selected as a director, she has no family relationships with any of Robinhood’s directors or executive officers, and she has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

On November 16, 2021, Robinhood published a blog post announcing Professor Frei’s appointment to the Board. A copy of that blog post is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Robinhood intends to use its blog, Under the Hood, as a means of disclosing material information to the public in a broad, non-exclusionary manner for purposes of the SEC’s Regulation Fair Disclosure (Reg. FD). Under the Hood can be accessed at https://blog.robinhood.com/ and investors should routinely monitor that website, in addition to the Company’s press releases, SEC filings, and public conference calls and webcasts, as information posted on the Company’s blog could be deemed to be material information.
