Item 1.01              Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Stock Purchase Agreement

 

On July 25, 2013, Activision Blizzard, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), ASAC II LP, an exempted limited partnership established under the laws of the Cayman Islands (“ASAC”), and acting by ASAC II LLC, its general partner, and Vivendi S.A., a société anonyme organized under the laws of France and an approximately 61% majority shareholder of the Company (the “Seller”), entered into a stock purchase agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”).  Robert A. Kotick, chief executive officer of the Company, and Brian G. Kelly, co-chairman of the board of directors of the Company, are affiliates of ASAC II LLC.

 

The Stock Purchase Agreement provides for the Company to, upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, acquire all of the capital stock of Amber Holding Subsidiary Co., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Seller (“New VH”), which at the time of purchase will be the direct owner of 428,676,471 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value, $0.000001 (the “Company Common Stock”), in consideration of a cash payment of $5,830,000,005.60, or $13.60 per share for the shares of Company Common Stock being acquired by the Company (the “Purchase Transaction”).  The Stock Purchase Agreement further provides for ASAC to, upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, purchase from the Seller 171,968,042 shares of Company Common Stock immediately following the consummation of the Purchase Transaction for an aggregate cash payment of $2,338,765,371.20 or $13.60 per share (the “Private Sale”), provided that such amounts may be reduced under certain circumstances as provided in the Stock Purchase Agreement.

 

After giving effect to the Purchase Transaction and the Private Sale (without any reduction), (i) the Seller is expected to hold approximately 83 million shares of Company Common Stock (the “Remaining Shares”) or approximately 12% of the Company’s Common Stock, and (ii) ASAC is expected to hold approximately 172 million shares or approximately 24.9% of the outstanding shares of Company Common Stock.  In addition, the Company expects to succeed to certain tax attributes of New VH.

 

The Stock Purchase Agreement contains covenants, including covenants relating to certain tax matters and proceedings and providing for restrictions on the Seller’s and ASAC’s ability to transfer Company Common Stock, requirements for the Company to file registration statements under certain circumstances and requirements for the Company and ASAC to use their reasonable best efforts to consummate the “Company Debt Financing” and “ASAC Debt Financing”, each as defined in the Stock Purchase Agreement, on or before the closing of the transactions, subject to certain limitations.  The Stock Purchase Agreement further provides that (i) the Seller and its “controlled affiliates”, as defined in the Stock Purchase Agreement, shall not transfer the Remaining Shares for fifteen months following the closing of the Purchase Transaction and Private Sale, with the exception of a three-month window after the first six months in which Seller will be able to sell up to the lesser of (a) 50% of the Remaining Shares and (b) nine percent of the issued and outstanding shares of Company Common Stock as of the date of such sale, and (ii) ASAC shall not transfer its approximately 24.9% ownership interest in the Company Common Stock until the earlier of (a) the end of the 18-month period following the closing of the Purchase Transaction and Private Sale, and (b) the date on which the Seller Entities, as defined in the Stock Purchase Agreement, no longer own 20% or more of the Remaining Shares (subject to certain exceptions to pay off debt incurred by ASAC in connection with the Private Sale as set forth in the Stock Purchase Agreement).

The Stock Purchase Agreement contemplates that the Seller may commence, after the consummation of the Purchase Transaction and Private Sale, one or more registered public offerings (the “Market Offerings”) for the sale of up to all of the Remaining Shares and provides that the Company shall file a shelf registration statement for such Market Offerings, subject to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, including the restrictions set forth above, and the Investor Agreement (defined below).

 

The conditions to consummation of the Purchase Transaction and Private Sale include, among others, (i) the expiration or termination of any waiting period under the Hart–Scott–Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 or any similar foreign antitrust, competition or similar applicable law; (ii) in the case of the Company’s obligations to complete the Purchase Transaction, the Company’s receipt of the proceeds of the Company Debt Financing; and (iii) in the case of ASAC’s obligations to complete the Private Sale, ASAC’s receipt of the proceeds of the ASAC Debt Financing.  In addition, the Stock Purchase Agreement specifies that, unless mutually agreed to by the parties, in no event shall the Purchase Transaction be consummated unless the parties are prepared to consummate the Private Sale immediately following the consummation of the Purchase Transaction.

 

The Stock Purchase Agreement contains certain termination rights for the Company, ASAC and the Seller, including (i) by mutual written consent of the Company, ASAC and the Seller; (ii) by any of the parties if the closing shall not have occurred by October 15, 2013; and (iii) by any party in the event of certain legal restraints prohibiting the consummation of the transactions.

 

Prior to or concurrently with the closing of the Purchase Transaction and the Private Sale, pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Seller will cause each of its designees to the Company’s board of directors (Philippe G. H. Capron, Jean-Yves Charlier, Frédéric R. Crépin, Jean-François Dubos, Lucian Grainge and Régis Turrini) to resign his position as a director on the Company’s board of directors and all committees of the board of directors, effective as of the closing of the transactions.

 

The Company plans to fund the Purchase Transaction with a combination of approximately $1.2 billion cash on hand and $4.75 billion of debt accessed through the capital markets and bank financings.  The commitment letter for the Company Debt Financing is described further below.  ASAC plans to fund the Private Sale through equity commitments from its investors and debt financing.  ASAC has delivered to the Seller and the Company executed equity commitment letters and subscription agreements from its investors and executed commitment letters with each of Merrill Lynch International and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., London Branch related to the ASAC Debt Financing.

 

A copy of the Stock Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Stock Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Stock Purchase Agreement.

 

The Stock Purchase Agreement has been included solely to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to be a source of financial, business or operational information about the Company, ASAC, the Seller or their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Stock Purchase Agreement are made only for purposes of the agreement and are made as of specific dates; are solely for the benefit of the parties; may be subject to qualifications and limitations agreed upon by the parties in connection with negotiating the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement; and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors or security holders.

Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Stock Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.  This Report on Form 8-K and its exhibits contain, or incorporate by reference, certain forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements consist of any statement other than a recitation of historical fact and include, but are not limited to: (1) projections of revenues, expenses, income or loss, earnings or loss per share, cash flow or other financial items; (2) statements of our plans and objectives; (3) statements of future financial or operating performance; (4) statements of assumptions underlying such statements; and (5) statements about the completion, timing, financing and impact of the transactions described herein.

Forward looking statements are subject to business and economic risk, reflect management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about our business, and are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict. Our actual results could differ materially. Risks and uncertainties that may affect our future results include, but are not limited to, sales levels of the Company’s titles, increasing concentration of titles, shifts in consumer spending trends, the impact of the current macroeconomic environment, the Company’s ability to predict consumer preferences, including interest in specific genres such as first-person action and massively multiplayer online games and preferences among competing hardware platforms, the seasonal and cyclical nature of the interactive game market, changing business models including digital delivery of content, competition including from used games and other forms of entertainment, possible declines in software pricing, product returns and price protection, product delays, adoption rate and availability of new hardware (including peripherals) and related software, particularly during the expected console transition, rapid changes in technology and industry standards, litigation risks and associated costs, protection of proprietary rights, maintenance of relationships with key personnel, customers, licensees, licensors, vendors, and third-party developers, including the ability to attract, retain and develop key personnel and developers that can create high quality “hit” titles, counterparty risks relating to customers, licensees, licensors and manufacturers, domestic and international economic, financial and political conditions and policies, foreign exchange rates and tax rates, the identification of suitable future acquisition opportunities and potential challenges associated with geographic expansion, capital market risks, the possibility that expected benefits related to the transactions may not materialize as expected, the transactions not being timely completed, if completed at all, and the other  factors  identified in “Risk Factors” included in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, as amended. The forward-looking statements contained herein are based upon information available to us as of the date of this Report on Form 8-K and we assume no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements. Although these forward-looking statements are believed to be true when made, they may ultimately prove to be incorrect. These statements are not guarantees of our future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond our control and may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations.
