KAR AUCTION SERVICES, INC. : Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

08/23/2021 | 07:12am EDT

Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 20, 2021, ADESA, Inc. ("ADESA"), a subsidiary of KAR Auction Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement"), by and among (i) ADESA, (ii) Carwave Holdings LLC ("Carwave"), (iii) KKR Chevy Blocker, LLC ("SMA Blocker") and KKR NGT II (Chevy) Blocker L.P. ("NGT2 Blocker" and, together with the SMA Blocker, the "Blockers"), (iv) KKR Chevy Aggregator L.P. (the "Aggregator"), John Lauer, William Lauer, Joseph Lauer, Lauer Holdings Inc., KKR-Milton Strategic Partners L.P., KKR DAF Private Assets Fund Designated Activity Company and KKR NGT II (Chevy) Blocker Parent L.P. (collectively, the "Sellers") and (v) the Aggregator, in its capacity as seller representative. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, ADESA will purchase from the Sellers all of the equity interests of Carwave and the Blockers (the "Transaction").

The aggregate cash consideration payable by ADESA in connection with the Transaction is $450 million, subject to certain adjustments pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. The Transaction and the Purchase Agreement have been unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.

Consummation of the Transaction is subject to customary conditions, including the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the "HSR Act"). Under certain circumstances, upon the termination of the Purchase Agreement relating to the failure of ADESA to perform certain covenants, ADESA would be required to pay a termination fee of $22.5 million to the Sellers on the terms and conditions further set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

The Purchase Agreement also contains customary representations and warranties and covenants, including, among other things, covenants with respect to the operation of the business of Carwave and its subsidiaries between the signing of the Purchase Agreement and the closing of the Transaction. In connection with the entry into of the Purchase Agreement, ADESA has obtained a customary representations and warranties insurance policy as recourse for certain losses arising out of breaches of the representations and warranties of the Sellers, the Blockers and Carwave and its subsidiaries in the Purchase Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Transaction does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On August 23, 2021, the Company issued a press release (the "Press Release") announcing the execution of the Purchase Agreement. A copy of the Press Release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
