Pursuant to the SPA, the Company has agreed to purchase from TIB 100% of the share capital (the “Shares”) of Studio397 BV (“Studio397”). The purchase price for the Shares will be U.S. $16,000,000, payable in two installments, as follows: U.S. $12,800,000 at closing (the “Completion Payment”) and U.S. $3,200,000 on the first-year anniversary of closing (the “Deferred Payment”).

 

To secure payment by the Company of the Deferred Payment, the Company agreed to grant a right of pledge on 20% of the Shares (“Pledged Shares”) by means of execution of the Deed of Pledge at closing of the transactions contemplated by the SPA. The voting rights attached to the Pledged Shares will be transferred to TIB if and to the extent that the Company fails to pay the Deferred Payment within 30 business days following receipt of TIB’s notice of such failure.

 

TIB agreed to fund Studio397 with sufficient funds from its proceeds of the Completion Payment at closing by way of share premium contribution so as to enable Studio397 to fully settle at closing the royalty payment amounts to be paid to Image Space Incorporated by Studio397 pursuant to the buy-out agreement, dated December 7, 2020, between Image Space Incorporated and Studio397.

 

The SPA contains customary for a transaction of this nature representations, warranties, covenants, restrictive covenants and indemnities. Closing of the transactions contemplated under the SPA is subject to the satisfaction of various conditions required prior to closing customary for transactions of this nature, including, without limitation, Studio397 having acquired full ownership and title to all intellectual property rights or other rights vesting in rF2, the rF2 Brand, rF2 Content and rF2 Software and in any derived or amended racing and driving simulation games or software applications thereof without any encumbrance by way of transfer and/or assignment from all relevant parties.

 

The closing of the transactions contemplated by the SPA are expected to occur on or before April 30, 2021. If any of the conditions to closing set forth in the SPA are not satisfied or waived before April 30, 2021 23:59 CET, the SPA may be terminated by the Company by written notice to TIB and Luminis.

 

The foregoing description of the SPA does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the SPA, a copy of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
