Item 1.01    Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 10, 2021, Tenable Network Security Ireland Limited (the “Purchaser”), an Irish private company limited by shares and indirect wholly-owned subsidiary or Tenable Holdings, Inc. (“Tenable”), entered into a share purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and among the Purchaser, Alsid SAS, a company organized under the laws of France (“Alsid”), the shareholders and warrantholders of Alsid (collectively, the “Sellers”) identified in the Purchase Agreement or joined to the Purchase Agreement pursuant to a Joinder Agreement (as defined in the Purchase Agreement), and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, as the representative of the Sellers (the “Sellers’ Representative”), pursuant to which Purchaser will acquire all of the outstanding share capital of Alsid (the “Acquisition”). The aggregate purchase price for the Acquisition is approximately $98 million in cash, subject to customary purchase price adjustments set forth in the Purchase Agreement.
Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, all unvested options to acquire ordinary shares of Alsid immediately prior to closing will vest and be canceled in exchange for a right to receive a portion of the cash consideration as described in the Purchase Agreement. In addition, all holders of outstanding warrants will exercise such warrants prior to the closing date of the Acquisition and shall be entitled to receive a portion of the cash consideration as described in the Purchase Agreement. Any unexercised warrants shall automatically lapse, terminate and cease to be exercisable at closing.
The Purchase Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants of Purchaser, Alsid and the Sellers that are customary for a transaction of this nature. The Acquisition is expected to close early in the second quarter of 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and regulatory approval of the Ministry of the Economy of France. The Purchase Agreement also contains customary indemnification provisions whereby the Sellers will indemnify the Purchaser for certain damages arising out of inaccuracies in, or breaches of, the representations, warranties and covenants of Alsid, pre-closing taxes of Alsid, and certain other matters, subject to certain caps and thresholds.
The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein. The Purchase Agreement has been attached to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Purchaser, Alsid or the Sellers. In particular, the assertions embodied in the representations and warranties contained in the Purchase Agreement are qualified by information in a confidential disclosure schedule provided by Alsid to the Purchaser in connection with the signing of the Purchase Agreement. This confidential disclosure schedule contains information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations and warranties and certain covenants set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement were used for the purposes of allocating risk between the Purchaser and Alsid rather than establishing matters of fact. Accordingly, the representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement should not be relied on as characterization of the actual state of facts about the Purchaser, Alsid or the Sellers.
Item 7.01    Regulation FD Disclosure
On February 10, 2021, Tenable issued a press release relating to the Acquisition. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The information shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any other filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission made by the Company, whether made before or after today’s date, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific references in such filing.
