Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 25, 2013, KiOR, Inc. (the "Company") received an Investment Commitment letter (each, a "Commitment Letter" and collectively, the "Commitment Letters") from each of Khosla Ventures and Vinod Khosla, pursuant to which Khosla Ventures and Vinod Khosla have each commited to invest in the Company cash in an amount of up to $25,000,000 in immediately available funds, for an aggregate investment of up to $50,000,000 (the "Commitment"). The Commitment is to support (i) the Company's plan to pursue an expanded build out strategy at its existing Columbus based facility and (ii) the Company's liquidity needs.

The Commitment is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Commitment Letters, which require one of the following (i) the negotiation and execution of financing documents, if the investment is made as a part of a broader debt and/or equity financing structure, (ii) the negotiation and execution of a convertible note with a conversion premium or (iii) alternative terms, if requested by the Company, and mutually agreed by the parties, as in the best interest of the Company and its stockholders.

Khosla Ventures is a significant stockholder of the Company. Vinod Khosla is the managing member of VK Services, LLC which is the manager of Khosla Ventures Associates II, LP ("KVA II") and Khosla Ventures Associates III, LP ("KVA III"). KVA II and KVA III are the general partners of Khosla Ventures II, LP and Khosla Ventures III, LP, respectively, who are stockholders of the Company. Certain shares of Class A common stock of the Company are held by an entity affiliated with Mr. Khosla, and Mr. Khosla may be deemed to have indirect beneficial ownership of such shares. As a result, each of Khosla Ventures and Mr. Khosla may be deemed to possess voting and investment control over (and indirect beneficial ownership of) approximately 60% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock of the Company. Samir Kaul, a director of the Company, is also a member of KVA II and KVA III.
