Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On February 12, 2020, Smith Micro Software, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the operator business of Circle Media Labs Inc. (“Circle”), a Delaware corporation, pursuant to a certain Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and between the Company and Circle.

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired certain assets, including customer contracts and a perpetual license, for a purchase price of Thirteen Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($13,500,000) in cash. An amount of One Million Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($1,350,000) is being withheld by the Company from the purchase price as a source of funds for indemnity claims for a period of six months. The Company and Circle entered into a license agreement and support agreement in connection with the transaction.

The foregoing description of the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

The Purchase Agreement governs the contractual rights between the parties in relation to the purchase and sale of the assets. The Purchase Agreement is being filed as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K to provide information regarding its terms and is not intended to provide, modify or supplement any information about the Company, Circle or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates, or their respective businesses. In particular, the Purchase Agreement is not intended to be, and should not be relied upon as, disclosures regarding any facts and circumstances relating to the Company or Circle. The representations and warranties contained in the Purchase Agreement have been negotiated with the principal purpose of allocating risk between the parties, rather than establishing matters as facts. The representations and warranties may also be subject to contractual standards of materiality that may be different from those generally applicable under the securities laws. For the foregoing reasons, the representations and warranties should not be relied upon as statements of factual information.

Item 2.01.  Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

See Item 1.01 above, which is incorporated herein by reference. On February 12, 2020, the Company completed the transaction described in Item 1.01, simultaneous with the execution of the Purchase Agreement.

On February 13, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the acquisition of Circle’s operator business, which is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto. The information in Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section.

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
