Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously announced, on November 24, 2020, INSU Acquisition Corp. II (the “Company”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (as amended, the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, INSU II Merger Sub Corp. (“Merger Sub”), and MetroMile, Inc. (“Metromile”), which provides for, among other things, Merger Sub to be merged with and into Metromile with Metromile being the surviving corporation in the merger and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger” and together with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “Transactions”). As a result of the Transactions, Metromile and its various operating subsidiaries will become subsidiaries of the Company, with the former stockholders of Metromile becoming stockholders of the Company.

On January 19, 2021, Metromile discovered a cybersecurity incident arising out of a software bug related to its online pre-filled quote form and application process. Based on its initial investigation, Metromile determined that unknown persons exploited the software bug to obtain personal information of certain individuals, including individuals’ driver’s license numbers, but, at this time, no customer data has been compromised. Metromile immediately took steps to contain and remediate the issue, including by releasing software fixes, notified its insurance carrier, and has continued its ongoing operations. Metromile is working diligently with security experts and legal counsel to ascertain how the incident occurred, identify additional containment and remediation measures, and notify affected individuals, law enforcement, and regulatory bodies, as appropriate.

Additional Information About the Transactions and Where to Find It

The Company has filed with the SEC a Registration Statement on Form S-4 in connection with the Transactions and has mailed a definitive proxy statement/prospectus and other relevant documents to its stockholders. The Company’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the definitive proxy statement/prospectus in connection with the Company’s solicitation of proxies for its stockholders’ meeting to be held to approve the Transactions because the proxy statement/prospectus contains important information about the Company, Metromile and the Transactions. The definitive proxy statement/prospectus was mailed to stockholders of the Company as of December 30, 2020.

The Company, Metromile and certain of their directors and officers may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies of the Company’s stockholders with respect to the approval of the Transactions. Information regarding the Company’s directors and officers and a description of their interests in the Company is contained in the Company’s final prospectus relating to its initial public offering, which was filed with the SEC.
