Introductory Note

On November 9, 2018, K2M Group Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), completed the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 29, 2018 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Stryker Corporation, a Michigan corporation (“Parent”), and Austin Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”). At the closing, Merger Sub merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger as the surviving corporation and as a wholly owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Parent.

 

Item 1.02.

Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

Concurrently with the closing of the Merger, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries terminated the revolving credit facility and otherwise satisfied their respective obligations, in each case, outstanding under that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of October 29, 2012 (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified on or prior to the date hereof, the “Credit Agreement”), among the Company, as a Guarantor, K2M, Inc., and K2M UK Limited, as Borrowers, the several lenders from time to time parties thereto and Silicon Valley Bank, as Administrative Agent, Issuing Lender and Swingline Lender, and terminated such Credit Agreement in accordance with its terms at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”) on November 9, 2018. The Credit Agreement provided for a $55,000,000 revolving credit facility, with a $10,000,000 letter-of-credit subfacility and a $5,000,000 swingline sub-facility. Amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement were repaid without any prepayment penalty or premium, other than customary LIBOR breakage costs.

 

Item 2.01.

Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

The information set forth in the Introductory Note and in Items 3.03, 5.01, 5.02, 5.03 and 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

On November 9, 2018, Parent completed the acquisition of the Company. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub was merged with and into the Company, with the Company surviving the Merger as a wholly owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Parent.

At the Effective Time, each share of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than any shares of Common Stock that may be held by the Company as treasury stock or held directly by Parent or any subsidiary of Parent (including Merger Sub), and other than any shares of Common Stock owned by stockholders of the Company who properly exercised and perfected such holder’s demand for appraisal rights pursuant to Section 262 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware), was converted into the right to receive $27.50 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes (the “Merger Consideration”).

At the Effective Time, each option to purchase shares of Common Stock that was outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, was cancelled and converted into the right to receive a cash payment (without interest) equal to the product of (A) the excess, if any, of the Merger Consideration over the per share exercise price of such option, and (B) the number of shares of Common Stock subject to such option as of the Effective Time, net of any applicable withholding taxes required to be withheld by applicable law. Options with a per share exercise price equal to or exceeding the Merger Consideration were cancelled without payment.

At the Effective Time, each K2M restricted stock award and K2M restricted stock unit award that was outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, was cancelled and converted into the right to receive a cash payment (without interest) equal to the product of (A) the Merger Consideration and (B) the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the award as of the Effective Time, net of any applicable withholding taxes required to be withheld by applicable law.

Participants who purchased shares of Common Stock under the Employee Stock-Purchase Plan will receive the same Merger Consideration in the same manner as other K2M stockholders for each such share of Common Stock that such participant held as of the Effective Time.

The total amount of funds to consummate the Merger and the related transactions, not including fees and expenses, was approximately $1.40 billion, including the funds needed to (i) pay K2M stockholders the Merger Consideration due to them under the Merger Agreement; (ii) make payments in respect of outstanding K2M stock options, K2M restricted stock awards and K2M restricted stock unit awards pursuant to the Merger Agreement; and (iii) pay the outstanding net indebtedness of K2M, including the consideration payable to holders of K2M’s outstanding 4.125% convertible senior notes due 2036 and 3.00% convertible senior notes due 2025.

The definitive proxy statement of the Company, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 5, 2018, contains additional information about the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including information concerning the interests of directors, executive officers and affiliates of the Company in the Merger.
