Item 8.01 Other Events.


On January 18, 2023, Vroom, Inc. (the “Company” or “Vroom”) executed a reduction in force as part of the Company’s continued focus on reducing variable and fixed costs as we pursue our three key objectives of prioritizing unit economics, reducing operating expenses and maximizing liquidity, as outlined in our long-term roadmap. We reduced Vroom’s headcount by approximately 275 employees, or approximately 20% of Vroom employees, excluding United Auto Credit Corporation (“UACC”), or approximately 13% measured across the combined Company. Combined with prior reductions, this reflects an approximately 50% reduction of Vroom employees and contractors (excluding UACC) since January 2022.


The Company expects to incur total cash charges of approximately $4.0 million, primarily consisting of severance, and expects to achieve approximately $27.0 million of annualized cash savings as a result of the reduction in force.
