Item 8.01. Other Events

On February 18, 2014, Vistaprint N.V. entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of People & Print Group B.V., a limited company incorporated in the Netherlands, for a base purchase price of €24 million and a sliding-scale earn-out payment subject to both a minimum EBITDA margin for calendar year 2014 and revenue and EBITDA performance targets for calendar year 2015. Under the share purchase agreement, €20 million of the base purchase price is payable in cash upon the closing of the transaction, subject to customary purchase price adjustments, and the remaining €4 million is payable in Vistaprint’s ordinary shares in January 2016 and will be converted into shares at that time.

In calendar 2013, revenue from People & Print Group sites was approximately €34 million, reflecting year-over-year growth of over 20 percent. People & Print Group’s EBITDA in calendar 2013 was approximately €3 million, reflecting 16% year-over-year growth. The base purchase price represents a valuation multiple of 8.3 times trailing twelve month EBITDA.
