Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 21, 2021, Verra Mobility Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Redflex Holdings Limited, a public company limited by shares, incorporated in Australia and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (“Redflex”), entered into a Scheme Implementation Agreement (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which, among other things and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of specified conditions, all of the holders of outstanding equity of Redflex on the record date will sell, and the Company will, or will cause its applicable subsidiary to, purchase one hundred percent (100%) of the outstanding equity of Redflex (the “Transaction”). The aggregate consideration payable by the Company under the Agreement will be A$146.1 million, or approximately US$113.5 million based on the exchange rate between the Australian Dollar and U.S. Dollar as of the date of this report. The Company will also assume Redflex’s existing cash and indebtedness at the closing of the Transaction.
The Company and Redflex have made customary warranties and Redflex has agreed to customary undertakings, including relating to the conduct of its business from the date of the Agreement until the closing of the Transaction, which is expected to take place in the second quarter of 2021. The Agreement also includes provisions that provide the Company will not have any claim against certain Redflex Released Persons (as defined in the Agreement) as a result of a breach by Redflex of its warranties or undertakings under the Agreement except to the extent that the relevant Redflex Released Person has acted fraudulently or has engaged in willful misconduct.
Each party’s obligation to consummate the Transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions including receipt of required regulatory and court approvals, the approval of the Transaction by the requisite majorities of Redflex shareholders, the accuracy of the other party’s warranties and the performance, in all material respects, by the other party of its obligations under the Agreement, and an independent expert issuing a report which concludes that the Transaction is in the best interests of Redflex shareholders. Under the Agreement, Redflex would be obligated to pay the Company a fee in the amount set forth in the Agreement, if (a) any director of Redflex fails to recommend the Transaction or makes a public statement indicating that he or she does not support Transaction (except in limited circumstances), (b) Redflex consummates a transaction within a certain period under the terms of a deal constituting a Competing Proposal under the Agreement, or (c) the Agreement is validly terminated by the Company due to a material breach by Redflex. Additionally, the Company would be obligated to pay Redflex a fee in the amount set forth in the Agreement if the Company does not pay the consideration in accordance with the Agreement or the Agreement is validly terminated by Redflex due to a material breach by the Company.
The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.
The Agreement has been attached to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms and is not intended to provide any factual information about the Company or Redflex. The warranties and undertakings in the Agreement were made only for the purpose of the Agreement and solely for the benefit of the parties to the Agreement as of specific dates. Such warranties and undertakings may have been made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, may or may not have been accurate as of any specific date, and may be subject to important limitations and qualifications and may therefore not be complete. The warranties and undertakings in the Agreement may also be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that may differ from those applicable to investors. Investors should not rely on the warranties and undertakings or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company, Redflex or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the warranties and undertakings may change after the date of the Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
