Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by Collectors Universe, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), on November 30, 2020, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Cards Parent LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Parent”), and Cards Acquisition Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub has commenced a tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase any and all issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Shares”) at an offer price of $75.25 per Share, without interest and subject to any required withholding taxes (the “Original Offer Price”), net to the seller in cash. The Merger Agreement also provides, among other things, that promptly following the completion of the Offer and upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company surviving as an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger” and together with the Offer, the “Transactions”).
On January 20, 2021, the Company, Parent and Merger Sub entered into an Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “A&R Merger Agreement”), which amended and restated the Merger Agreement in its entirety. Pursuant to the A&R Merger Agreement, the Original Offer Price was increased from $75.25 per Share to $92.00 per Share, without interest and subject to any required withholding taxes, net to the seller in cash, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Offer (as so amended). In connection with the entry into the A&R Merger Agreement, the parties agreed to extend the expiration time for the Offer from January 19, 2021, to February 3, 2021, subject to further extensions in accordance with the terms of the A&R Merger Agreement.
The foregoing description of the A&R Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the A&R Merger Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated by reference.
