ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT
On July 10, 2017, Logitech Europe S.A. (the “Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Logitech International S.A. (the “registrant” or “Logitech”), and AG Acquisition Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Seller”), entered into an asset purchase agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company will acquire certain of the assets and assume certain specified liabilities of Seller in exchange for approximately eighty five million dollars ($85,000,000) in cash.
The Asset Purchase Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants of the parties, closing conditions and certain indemnification obligations of Seller to the Company and its affiliates supported by an escrow fund. The summary of the Asset Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the Asset Purchase Agreement.
The representations and warranties by each of the Company and Seller in the Asset Purchase Agreement were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Asset Purchase Agreement and (i) should not be treated as categorical statements of fact, but rather as a way of allocating the risk to one of the parties if those statements prove to be inaccurate, (ii) may have been qualified in the Asset Purchase Agreement by disclosures that were made to the other party in accordance with the Asset Purchase Agreement, (iii) may apply contractual standards of “materiality” that are different from “materiality” under applicable securities laws, and (iv) were made only as of the date of the Asset Purchase Agreement or such other date or dates as may be specified in the Asset Purchase Agreement.
