Overview
We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on
January 29, 2021 for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange,
asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or other similar Business
Combination with one or more businesses. We intend to effectuate our Business
Combination using cash from the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and the
sale of the Private Placement Shares, and forward purchase shares, our capital
stock, debt or a combination of cash, stock and debt. We are an emerging growth
company and, as such, we are subject to all of the risks associated with
emerging growth companies.
Our Sponsor is Khosla Ventures SPAC Sponsor II LLC, a Delaware limited liability
company. The registration statement for our Initial Public Offering was declared
effective on March 23, 2021. On March 26, 2021, we consummated its Initial
Public Offering of 40,000,000 Public Shares, at $10.00 per share, generating
gross proceeds of $400,000,000. On March 30, 2021, the underwriters partially
exercised their over-allotment option, resulting in an additional 1,634,412
Public Shares issued for additional proceeds of $16,344,120. Total shares sold
in connection with the Initial Public Offering are 41,634,412 Public Shares. We
incurred offering costs of $23,576,984, inclusive of $14,572,044 in deferred
underwriting fees payable.
Simultaneously with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we consummated
the Private Placement of 1,100,000 Private Placement Shares at a price of $10.00
per Private Placement Share to the Sponsor, generating proceeds of $11,000,000.
In connection with the underwriters' partial exercise of their over-allotment
option, we also consummated the sale of an additional 32,688 Private Placement
Shares at $10.00 per Private Placement Share, generating total proceeds of
$326,880.
Following the closing of the Initial Public Offering, the partial exercise of
the over-allotment option and the Private Placement, $416,344,120 ($10.00 per
share) of the net proceeds of the Initial Public Offering and certain of the
proceeds of the Private Placement was held in a Trust Account ("Trust Account")
located in the United States with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company
acting as trustee, and invested only in United States "government securities"
within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act having a
maturity of 180 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain conditions
under Rule
2a-7
promulgated under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S.
government treasury obligations, as determined by us, until the earlier of:
(i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of the
Trust Account.
If we are unable to complete a Business Combination within 24 months from the
closing of the Initial Public Offering (March 23, 2023) or 27 months (June 23,
2023), if we have executed a letter of intent, agreement in principle or
definitive agreement for an initial Business Combination by March 23, 2023 (the
"Combination Period"), and our stockholders have not amended the Certificate of
Incorporation to extend such Combination Period, we will (i) cease all
operations except for the purpose of winding up; (ii) as

                                       16

promptly as reasonably possible but no more than ten business days thereafter
subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem the Public Shares, at a
per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit
in the Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust
Account and not previously released to us to pay our taxes as well as expenses
relating to the administration of the Trust Account (less up to $100,000 of
interest to pay dissolution expenses) divided by the number of the then
outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish Public
Stockholders' rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further
liquidation distributions, if any), subject to applicable law; and (iii) as
promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the
approval of the remaining stockholders and the board of directors, liquidate and
dissolve, subject in each case to our obligations under Delaware law to provide
for claims of creditors and the requirements of other applicable law.
On July 6, 2021, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger
Agreement") with Nextdoor, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Nextdoor"), and
Lorelei Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned
subsidiary of KVSB ("Merger Sub"). We have incurred minimal transaction expenses
for the period from January 29, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021 in
connection with the negotiation and consummation of the transactions
contemplated by the Merger Agreement. On October 1, 2021, Khosla Ventures
Acquisition Co. II ("KVSB") entered into an amendment (the "Amendment") to the
previously disclosed Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement"),
dated as of July 6, 2021, among KVSB, Nextdoor, Inc., a Delaware corporation
("Nextdoor") and Lorelei Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct
wholly-owned subsidiary of KVSB. Pursuant to the Amendment, in addition to KVSB
stockholder approval of the amendment and restatement of the certificate of
incorporation of KVSB (the "Proposed Charter") pursuant to the governing
documents of KVSB and applicable law, the parties agreed to a mutual closing
condition that the Proposed Charter will have been approved at the Acquiror
Stockholders' Meeting by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of
the shares of KVSB's Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share ("KVSB
Class A Common Stock"), then outstanding and entitled to vote thereon at the
Acquiror Stockholders' Meeting, voting separately as a single series. The
Amendment provides that such condition may not be waived by the parties. The
form of Proposed Charter is attached as Annex C to the registration statement on
Form S-4 that
KVSB filed with the SEC on July 20, 2021. The transaction is expected to close
on November 5, 2021.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $572,360 in its cash account,
$416,354,760 in securities held in the Trust Account to be used for a Business
Combination or to repurchase or redeem its common stock in connection therewith
and a working capital deficiency of $619,445. As of September 30, 2021, $10,640
of the amount on deposit in the Trust Account represented interest income, which
is available for payment of franchise taxes and expenses in connection with the
liquidation of the Trust Account.
If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to take
additional measures to conserve liquidity, which could include, but not
necessarily be limited to, suspending the pursuit of a Business Combination. The
Company cannot provide any assurance that new financing will be available to it
on commercially acceptable terms, if at all.
As a result of the above, in connection with the Company's assessment of going
concern considerations in accordance with Accounting Standards Update ("ASU")
2014-15,
"Disclosures of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going
Concern," management has determined that the liquidity condition and date for
mandatory liquidation and dissolution raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern through approximately one year
from the date of filing. These financial statements do not include any
adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the
classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be
unable to continue as a going concern.
Prior to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company's
liquidity needs have been satisfied through receipt of a $25,000 capital
contribution from the Sponsor in exchange for the issuance of the Founder Shares
to the Sponsor, and a $300,000 promissory note payable to the Sponsor.
Subsequent to the consummation of the Initial Public Offering, the Company
received the net proceeds not held in the Trust Account of approximately
$3,000,000. The Company fully repaid the note to the Sponsor in April 2021. In
addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business
Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the
Company's officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, loan the Company
Working Capital Loans. Except for the foregoing, the terms of such Working
Capital Loans, if any, have not been determined and no written agreements exist
with respect to such loans.
The Working Capital Loans would either be repaid upon consummation of a Business
Combination, without interest, or, at the lender's discretion, up to $1,500,000
of such Working Capital Loans may be convertible into shares of the
post-transaction company at $10.00 per share at the option of the lender. As of
September 30, 2021, the Company has no borrowings under the Working Capital
Loans.
Results of Operations
We have neither engaged in any operations (other than searching for a Business
Combination after our Initial Public Offering) nor generated any revenues to
date. Our only activities from January 29, 2021 (inception) through September
30, 2021 were organizational activities and those necessary to prepare for the
Initial Public Offering, described below. We do not expect to generate any
operating revenues until after the completion of our Business Combination. We
expect to generate non-operating income in the form of interest income on
marketable securities held after the Initial Public Offering. We incur expenses
as a result of being a public company (for legal, financial reporting,
accounting and auditing compliance), as well as for due diligence expenses.
For the period from January 29, 2021 (inception) through September 30, 2021, we
had a loss from operations of $2,654,906, which consisted of $25,000 in
formation costs, $2,479,906 in general administrative expenses, and $150,000 in
franchise tax expenses. We also incurred $36,537,500 in financing expenses on
derivative classified instrument, offset the change in fair value of derivative
liabilities of $26,250,000 and gains on marketable securities (net), dividends
and interest, held in the Trust Account of $10,640, resulting in a net loss of
$12,931,766 for the period from January 29, 2021 (inception) through September
30, 2021.
For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had a loss from operations of
$2,245,939, which consisted of $2,195,939 in general and administrative
expenses, and $50,000 in franchise tax expenses. The loss from operations was
offset by a change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $6,250,000 and
gains on marketable securities (net), dividends and interest, held in Trust
Account of $4,313, resulting in net income of $4,008,374 for the three months
ended September 30, 2021.

Off-Balance
Sheet Arrangements
We did not have any
off-balance
sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2021.
Contractual Obligations
We do not have any long-term debt, capital lease obligations, operating lease
obligations or long-term liabilities.
The underwriters are entitled to a deferred fee of $0.35 per Public Share, or
$14,572,044 in the aggregate. The deferred fee will be waived by the
underwriters in the event that the Company does not complete a Business
Combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.
On March 23, 2021, we entered into a forward purchase agreement pursuant to
which the Sponsor (together with any permitted transferees under the forward
purchase agreement, the "Khosla Entities") have agreed to purchase an aggregate
of up to 1,000,000 forward purchase shares for $10.00 per share, or an aggregate
maximum amount of $10,000,000, in a private placement that will close
simultaneously with the closing of the initial Business Combination. The Khosla
Entities will purchase a number of forward-purchase shares that will result in
gross proceeds to us necessary to enable us to consummate our initial Business
Combination and pay related fees and expenses, after first applying amounts
available to us from the Trust Account (after paying the deferred underwriting
discount and giving effect to any redemptions of Public Shares) and any other
financing source obtained by us for such purpose at or prior to the consummation
of our initial Business Combination, plus any additional amounts mutually agreed
by us and the Khosla Entities to be retained by the post-Business Combination
company for working capital or other purposes. The Khosla Entities' obligation
to purchase forward-purchase shares will, among other things, be conditioned on
the Business Combination (including the target assets or business, and the terms
of the Business Combination) being reasonably acceptable to the Khosla Entities
and on a requirement that such initial Business Combination is approved by a
unanimous vote of our board of directors. In determining whether a target is
reasonably acceptable to the Khosla Entities, we expect that the Khosla Entities
would consider many of the same criteria as we will consider but will also
consider whether the investment is an appropriate investment for the Khosla
Entities.
Critical Accounting Policies
The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity
with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America
requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and
liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and income and expenses
during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those
estimates. We have not identified any critical accounting policies other than
the following.
Class K Founder Shares Derivative Liabilities
Class K Founder Shares was accounted for as a liability in accordance with ASC
Topic 815 and presented as derivative liability on the accompanying September
30, 2021, balance sheet. The derivative liability was measured at fair value at
inception and on a recurring basis, which changes in fair value presented within
change in fair value of derivative liability in the statements of operations. In
order to capture the market conditions associated with the Class K Founder
Shares derivative liabilities, the Company applied an approach that incorporated
a Monte Carlo simulation, which involved random iterations of future stock-price
paths over the contractual life of the Class K Founder Shares. Based on
assumptions regarding potential changes in control of the Company, and the
probability distribution of outcomes, the payoff to the holder was determined
based on the achievement of the various market thresholds within each simulated
path. The present value of the payoff in each simulated trial is calculated, and
the fair value of the liability is determined by taking the average of all
present values.
The inputs used as of September 30, 2021 was as follow: risk free rate of 1.53%;
term in years to business combination 0.3 years; expected volatility 12.5% and
the stock price was $10.18.

  Table of Contents
Recent accounting standards
Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective,
accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our
financial statements.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
As of September 30, 2021 the Company's portfolio of investments held in the
Trust Account are comprised solely of U.S. government securities, within the
meaning set forth in Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act, with a
maturity of 180 days or less, classified as trading securities. Trading
securities are presented on the balance sheet at fair value at the end of each
reporting period. Gains and losses resulting from the change in fair value of
these securities is included in gain on marketable securities, dividends and
interest held in the Trust Account in the accompanying statement of operations.
The fair value for trading securities is determined using quoted market prices
in active markets. Due to the short-term nature of these investments, we believe
there will be no associated material exposure to interest rate risk.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information
required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded,
processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the
SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated
to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal
financial officer or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to
allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

  Table of Contents
Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including
our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer,
we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and
procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021, as such
term is defined in Rules
13a-15(e)
and
15d-15(e)
under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive
officer and principal financial and accounting officer have concluded that
during the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures
were not effective due to material weaknesses in internal controls over
financial reporting related to the inaccurate accounting. Management identified
errors in its historical financial statements related to the accounting for the
Class A common stock and the Class K Founder Shares. Because the Class A common
stock issued in the Initial Public Offering can be redeemed or become redeemable
subject to the occurrence of future events considered outside of the Company's
control, the Company should have classified all of these redeemable shares in
temporary equity and remeasured these redeemable shares to their redemption
value (i.e., $10.00 per share) as of the end of the first reporting period after
the date of the Company's Initial Public Offering. Management also concluded
that it incorrectly accounted for the Class K Founder Shares as permanent equity
versus a derivative liability. To address these material weaknesses, management
has devoted, and plans to continue to devote, significant effort and resources
to the remediation and improvement of its internal control over financial
reporting and to provide processes and controls over the internal communications
within the Company, financial advisors and independent registered public
accounting firm. While we have processes to identify and appropriately apply
applicable accounting requirements, we plan to enhance these processes to better
evaluate our research and understanding of the nuances of the complex accounting
standards that apply to our financial statements. We plan to include providing
enhanced access to accounting literature, research materials and documents and
increased communication among our personnel and third-party professionals with
whom we consult regarding complex accounting applications. The elements of our
remediation plan can only be accomplished over time, and we can offer no
assurance that these initiatives will ultimately have the intended effects.
Other than this issue, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at
a reasonable assurance level and, accordingly, provided reasonable assurance
that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the
Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time
periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
During the quarter ended September 30, 2021, there has been no change in our
internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is
reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial
reporting, as the circumstances that led to the material weakness described
above had not yet been identified. We are in the process of implementing changes
to our internal control over financial reporting to remediate such material
weaknesses, as more fully described above. The elements of our remediation plan
can only be accomplished over time, and we can offer no assurance that these
initiatives will ultimately have the intended effects.
