1.06Closing.  The closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Closing”) shall take place electronically by the mutual exchange of facsimile or portable document format (PDF) signatures (a) on the last day of the month in which satisfaction or waiver of all of the closing conditions set forth in Article V hereof occurs at least two (2) Business Days prior to the last day of the month (other than those to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to their

- 4 -

 

 


 

satisfaction at the Closing), (b) at the option of Seller, on December 31, 2020 assuming satisfaction or waiver of all of the closing conditions set forth in Article V hereof occurs (other than those to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to their satisfaction at the Closing), or (c) on such other date as is mutually agreed in writing by Buyer and Seller.  The date on which Closing actually occurs is referred to herein as the “Closing Date”; provided, however, that the Closing shall not occur prior to (i) November 11, 2020 (the “Inside Date”) or (ii) a date prior to the Inside Date that is specified by Buyer on not less than two (2) Business Days’ written notice to the Company (it being understood that the Closing occurring on such date may be conditioned on the simultaneous closing of the Debt Financing).  If the Closing occurs, all transactions contemplated herein to occur on or as of the Closing Date shall be deemed to have occurred simultaneously and to be effective as of 11:59 p.m. (Chicago time) on the Closing Date.

1.07Estimated Cash Payment.  Not less than two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Buyer an estimate of the Cash Amount, the Working Capital Surplus, if any, and the Working Capital Deficit, if any, along with  and, based on such estimates, an estimate of the Cash Payment (the “Estimated Cash Payment”).  Seller shall consider in good faith any comments to the Estimated Cash Payment and the calculations therein delivered by Buyer and shall deliver an updated Estimated Cash Payment no later than one (1) Business Day prior to the Closing Date taking into account any comments it accepts in its discretion, while acting in good faith, which shall be the definitive Estimated Cash Payment for all purposes hereunder.  For the avoidance of doubt, agreement on the Estimated Cash Payment is not a condition to Closing.

1.08Closing Payments.  At the Closing Buyer shall pay the Estimated Cash Payment to Seller.  All payments pursuant to this Section 1.08 shall be by wire transfer of immediately available U.S. dollars to an account or accounts specified by Seller.

1.09Cash Payment Adjustment.

(a)Within sixty (60) days after the Closing Date, Buyer (i) shall prepare and deliver to Seller a statement setting forth Buyer’s good faith calculation of (A) the Working Capital (and the Working Capital Surplus or Working Capital Deficit, if any), (B) the Cash Amount, and (C) based on the amounts set forth in clauses (A) and (B), the Cash Payment (the “Closing Statement”), and (ii) shall provide access to all records and work papers necessary to compute and verify the information set forth in the Closing Statement promptly upon request by Seller.  After delivery of the Closing Statement, Seller and its accountants shall be permitted to make inquiries of Buyer and the Company and their accountants regarding questions concerning, or disagreements with, the Closing Statement arising in the course of their review thereof.  If Seller has any objections to the Closing Statement, then Seller shall deliver to Buyer a statement (an “Objection Statement”) setting forth its disputes or objections (the “Objection Disputes”) to the Closing Statement and, to the extent practical, Seller’s proposed resolution of each such Objection Dispute.  If an Objection Statement is not delivered to Buyer within forty-five (45) days after receipt of the Closing Statement by Seller, then the Closing Statement as originally received by Seller shall be final, binding and non-appealable by the Parties.  If an Objection Statement is timely delivered, then Buyer and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any Objection Disputes, but if they do not reach a final resolution within thirty (30) days after the delivery of the Objection Statement, Seller and Buyer shall submit each unresolved Objection Dispute to BDO USA LLP (the

- 5 -

 

 


 

Independent Auditor”) to resolve such Objection Disputes.  The Independent Auditor shall be instructed to set forth a procedure to provide for prompt resolution of any unresolved Objection Disputes (and only such Objection Disputes) and, in any event, to make its determination in respect of such Objection Disputes (and only such Objection Disputes) within thirty (30) days following its retention.  The Independent Auditor’s determination of such Objection Disputes shall be final and binding upon the Parties and not subject to review by a court or other tribunal; provided, however, that no such determination with respect to any item reflected in the Objection Statement shall be any more favorable to Buyer than is set forth in the Closing Statement or any more favorable to Seller than is proposed in the Objection Statement.  Each Party shall pay its own costs, fees and expenses and shall split equally the costs, fees, and expenses of the Independent Auditor.  The final Closing Statement, however determined pursuant to this Section 1.09(a), will produce the Working Capital Surplus or Working Capital Deficit, if any, and the Cash Amount, in each case to be used to determine the final Cash Payment.  The process set forth in this Section 1.09(a) shall be the exclusive remedy of the Parties for any disputes related to items required to be reflected on the Closing Statement or included in the calculation of the Working Capital and the Cash Amount, whether or not the underlying facts and circumstances constitute a breach of any representations or warranties.

(b)If after the final determination pursuant to clause (a) above, the final Cash Payment is greater than the Estimated Cash Payment, then Buyer shall promptly (but in any event within five (5) Business Days of the final determination thereof) pay to Seller such difference by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account or accounts designated by Seller.  If after the final determination pursuant to clause (a) above, the Estimated Cash Payment is greater than the final Cash Payment, then Seller shall promptly (but in any event within five (5) Business Days of the final determination thereof) pay to Buyer such difference by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account or accounts designated by Buyer.  

1.10Preparation of Closing Statement; Cooperation.

(a)Preparation of Closing Statement.  The Closing Statement (and all calculations of Working Capital and the Cash Amount) shall be prepared and calculated in accordance with the same accounting methodologies, principles and procedures used in, and on a basis consistent with, those applied in preparing the Year-End Financial Statements (including calculating reserves in accordance with the same methodology used to calculate such reserves in preparation of the Year-End Financial Statements), except that the Closing Statement (and all calculations of Working Capital and the Cash Amount) shall:  (i) not include any purchase accounting or other adjustment arising out of the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; (ii) be based on facts and circumstances as they exist prior to the Closing and shall exclude the effect of any act, decision or event occurring on or after the Closing; (iii) include general ledger accounts and line items (and only those general ledger accounts and line items) set forth on Schedule 1.10(a) (the “Included Current Assets” and “Included Current Liabilities,” as applicable); and (iv) not reflect, directly or indirectly, any additional reserve or accrual that is not reflected on the Year-End Financial Statements, except those that: (a) result from material developments occurring after December 31, 2019 that are not listed on Section 3.08 of the Disclosure Schedule, and (b) would be required to be reflected on the face of a balance sheet prepared in accordance with the accounting methodologies, principles and procedures used in, and

- 6 -

 

 


 

on a basis consistent with, those applied in preparing the Year-End Financial Statements or, in the event there was no applicable methodology, principle or procedure used in the preparation of the Year-End Financial Statements, would be required to be reflected on the face of a balance sheet prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(b)Cooperation.  Prior to the Closing, Seller shall, and shall cause the Company, its subsidiaries and their respective officers, employees, consultants, accountants and agents to (i) cooperate fully with Buyer and its accountants and agents in connection with its review of the calculation of the Estimated Cash Payment (including by providing Buyer with reasonable access to the employees of the Business who are knowledgeable about the information contained in, and the preparation of, the calculation of the Estimated Cash Payment) and (ii) provide any books, records and other information reasonably requested by Buyer and its accountants in connection therewith.  Following the Closing, Buyer shall, and shall cause the Company, its Subsidiaries and their respective officers, employees, consultants, accountants and agents to (i) cooperate fully with Seller and its accountants and agents in connection with its review of the Closing Statement and the preparation of the Objection Statement (including by providing Seller with reasonable access to the employees of the Business who are knowledgeable about the information contained in, and the preparation of, the Closing Statement) and (ii) provide any books, records and other information reasonably requested by Seller and its accountants in connection therewith or in connection with resolving any Objection Dispute.  

1.11Allocation of Purchase Price.  Buyer and Seller agree to allocate the purchase price (as finally determined for applicable U.S. federal income Tax purposes, taking into account the applicable Assumed Liabilities and any other amounts to the extent properly taken into account under the Code) among the Acquired Assets and the assets of the Company in accordance with the methodologies set forth on Exhibit C attached hereto (the “Allocation”).  The Allocation shall be prepared in accordance with the principles of Section 1060 of the Code and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder to the extent applicable. None of Seller or Buyer shall (and Seller and Buyer shall cause their respective Affiliates not to) take any position inconsistent with the Allocation on any Tax Return (including but not limited to Internal Revenue Service Form 8594) or in any Tax Proceeding, in each case, except to the extent otherwise required pursuant to a “determination” within the meaning of Section 1313(a) of the Code (or any similar provision of state, local or foreign Law).

1.12Non-Assignment; Consents; Shared Contracts; Enterprise Contracts.  

(a)Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement shall not constitute an assignment or an agreement to assign any Contract, franchise or Permit if the transactions contemplated hereby, including an attempted assignment thereof, without the consent of another Person or any Governmental Authority, would constitute a breach thereof or in any way affect the rights of Seller or the Company thereunder (such Contracts, franchises or Permits that are not Affiliate Assignable Contracts, the “Delayed Assets”); provided, however, that to the extent not inconsistent with the terms of any Delayed Asset or Law, the Parties shall treat Buyer as the owner thereof for Tax purposes as of the Closing Date. Without limiting the generality of Section 4.15 (Further Assurances), Seller and Buyer shall, for a period of three (3) months following the Closing, use, and shall cause their respective Subsidiaries to use,

- 7 -

 

 


 

commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all consents, amendments, novations and waivers and to resolve all impracticalities of assignments, novations or transfers necessary to convey the Delayed Assets to Buyer following the Closing Date; provided, however, that none of Seller, Buyer or any other Person shall be required to offer to make or make any payment to any counterparty with respect to any Delayed Asset or incur any liability to secure any such consent, amendment, novation or waiver, other than payments that Buyer advances to Seller.  If such consents, amendments, novations or waivers are not obtained (or until such consents, amendments, novations and waivers are obtained), then Seller and Buyer will cooperate in a reasonable arrangement designed to obtain for Buyer all benefits and privileges of the applicable Delayed Asset, including by Seller holding such Delayed Asset, as of and from the Closing, in trust for Buyer, with Buyer performing the covenants and obligations and liabilities thereunder in Seller’s name, with all benefits and obligations existing thereunder being for Buyer’s account; provided, however, that in no event shall Seller or any of its Affiliates be required to take any action or enter into any arrangement that would result in Seller or any its Affiliates incurring additional liabilities or obligations thereunder.

(b)Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Enterprise Contracts shall be retained by Seller or its applicable Affiliate, and are not included in the Acquired Assets.

(c)(i) To the extent any Shared Contract may be split and assigned in part to Buyer or replicated for the benefit of Buyer pursuant to its terms, without the consent of the counterparty thereto or other conditions, including the payment of a transfer or other fee (the “Assignable Shared Contracts”), such Assignable Shared Contracts shall thereafter be deemed (to the extent of the split or replication with respect to the portion of such Assignable Shared Contract that relates exclusively to the Business) to be an Acquired Asset hereunder and Seller shall split and partially assign to Buyer, or have replicated for the benefit of Buyer, as of the Closing Date such Contract in accordance with its terms. (ii) With respect to each Shared Contract that is not an Assignable Shared Contract and is not an Affiliate Assignable Contract (the “Non-Assignable Shared Contracts”), each Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts from the date hereof until three (3) months after the Closing Date to cause the counterparty to each such Non-Assignable Shared Contract to consent to the split and partial assignment or replication of such Non-Assignable Shared Contract to Buyer (with respect to the portion of such Non-Assignable Shared Contract that exclusively relates to the Business), or to otherwise enter into a new Contract with Buyer on substantially the same terms as exist under the applicable Shared Contract as of the Closing Date. Each such Non-Assignable Shared Contract for which the Parties have received consent to the split and partial assignment or replication shall thereafter be deemed (to the extent of the split or replication with respect to the portion of such Non-Assignable Shared Contract that exclusively relates to the Business) to be an Acquired Asset hereunder and Seller shall split and partially assign to Buyer, or have replicated, as of the Closing Date such Contract in accordance with its terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller and its Affiliates shall not be required to split and partially assign to Buyer or have replicated any of the Non-Assignable Shared Contracts for which consent has not been obtained. Buyer shall be responsible for the payment of any transfer or other fee for the split and partial assignment or replication of such Shared Contract. As to any Non-Assignable Shared Contract for which the Parties have not received consent as of the Closing, then Seller and Buyer will cooperate in a reasonable arrangement designed to obtain for Buyer all benefits and privileges of the portion of the applicable Non-Assignable Shared Contract

- 8 -

 

 


 

exclusively relating to the Business, with Buyer performing and assuming the covenants, obligations and liabilities related thereto in Seller’s name; provided, however, that in no event shall Seller or any of its Affiliates be required to take any action or enter into any arrangement that would result in Seller or any its Affiliates incurring additional liabilities or obligations thereunder.

(d)With respect to any (i) Contract where assignment of such Contract to Buyer without the consent of another Person or any Governmental Authority would constitute a breach thereof or in any way affect the rights of Seller or the Company thereunder but where assignment to the Company without the consent of another Person or any Governmental Authority prior to the Closing would not constitute such a breach, and (ii) any Shared Contract that may not be split and assigned in part to Buyer or replicated for the benefit of Buyer but may be split and assigned in part to the Company prior to the Closing pursuant to its terms (the “Affiliate Assignable Contracts”), Seller and its Affiliates shall, prior to the Closing, assign such Contracts to the Company or split such Shared Contracts and partially assign such portion of the Affiliate Assignable Contracts that relates to the Business to the Company.

(e)So long as Seller satisfies its obligations pursuant to this Section, Seller shall have no liability whatsoever to Buyer arising out of or relating to the failure to obtain any such consent, amendment, novation or waiver or the termination of any Delayed Asset or Shared Contract as a result thereof.

1.13Withholding.  Buyer, or any of its agents, shall be entitled to deduct and withhold (or cause to be deducted and withheld) from amounts otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement any amounts as are required to be withheld or deducted with respect to such payment under the Code or any other applicable Tax Law.  To the extent that amounts are so deducted and withheld, and timely remitted to the appropriate Governmental Authority, such amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement and any Ancillary Agreement as having been paid to the Person in respect of which such deduction or withholding was made.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, to the extent there are any employee compensatory amounts subject to payroll reporting and withholding that are payable pursuant to or as contemplated by this Agreement and any Ancillary Agreement, such payments shall be payable in accordance with applicable payroll procedures.

(ii)Seller shall cause a newly formed limited liability company, the name and governing documents of which shall be provided by Buyer (the “New LLC”).  Except as otherwise provided under this subsection (ii), immediately preceding the Closing Date, Seller shall cause New LLC to make an offer of employment to each Continuing Employee in the United States, which offer shall be for employment in the same position and for the same compensation and benefits offered to such Continuing Employee by Seller immediately prior to such transfer of employment.  Each Inactive Business Employee shall not be transferred to New LLC by the Seller prior to Closing and Buyer or an Affiliate of Buyer shall make an offer of employment to each such Inactive Business Employee as of her or her return to active employment.  In the event that Buyer elects this alternative set forth in Section 4.16(a)(ii), (1) the parties shall execute an Employee Leasing Agreement for the Continuing Employees employed by New LLC and located in the United States to be leased to the Buyer for purposes of continuing services with the Company, with supporting processes to be established in good faith by Buyer and Seller prior to Closing to address management and direction of such employees; and (2) Seller shall transfer all

units of the New LLC to Buyer on December 31, 2020, along with any supporting documentation that may be requested by Buyer and that is consistent with the scope of Section 4.14.

- 37 -

 

 


 

implied, shall be construed to establish, amend or modify any benefit plan, program, agreement or arrangement.  The Parties acknowledge and agree that the terms set forth in this Section 4.16 shall not create any right in any employee or any other Person to any continued employment with any of Seller, the Company, Buyer or any of their respective Affiliates or compensation or benefits of any nature or kind whatsoever.

(d)Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 4.16 of this Agreement and to the extent permitted under applicable Law, neither Seller nor its Affiliates shall take any action to terminate the employment of any Inactive Business Employee until the earlier of (i) the date that is twelve (12) months following the Closing Date (except where required otherwise by applicable Law), (ii) the date when such Inactive Business Employee returns to active employment, and (iii) the date on which such Inactive Business Employee exhausts his or her maximum period of leave under Seller policies or applicable Law.  Buyer, the Company or an Affiliate or Buyer shall offer employment to each Inactive Business Employee upon his or her return to active employment, so long as such Inactive Business Employee returns to active employment within twelve (12) months following the Closing Date (or such longer period required by applicable Law), and each such Inactive Business Employee shall become a Continuing Employee only upon their commencement of active employment with Buyer, the Company or an Affiliate of Buyer.  Seller agrees to promptly notify, or cause its applicable Affiliate to notify, Buyer upon receiving notice of an Inactive Business Employee’s pending return to work or upon an Inactive Business Employee’s exhaustion of leave under Seller policies.

(e)During the Continuation Period, Buyer shall honor in accordance with their terms all severance arrangements between Seller, on the one hand, and the Continuing Employees, on the other hand, in effect prior to the Closing Date, as well as all applicable Laws relating to the termination and severance of employment.
