Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Stock Purchase Agreement
On February 17, 2012, Access Plans, Inc. (Access Plans) and Reliant Financial Group, LLC (Reliant) entered into the Stock Purchase Agreement (the Sale Agreement), providing for the sale of Access Plans subsidiary, Americas Health Care/Rx Plan Agency, Inc. (AHCP) to Reliant. Access Plans Insurance Marketing Division activities were principally conducted by AHCP.
The sale of AHCP was completed on February 22, 2012 (the Closing Date). The $1.85 million purchase price was paid in a combination of $.35 million in cash and Access Plans receipt of Reliants promissory note in the principal amount of $1.5 million. The purchase price is subject to adjustment in the event the current assets are less than or greater than current liabilities of AHCP and its subsidiary on the Closing Date. To the extent current liabilities exceed current assets, Access Plans agreed to pay Reliant an amount equal to excess. Alternatively, to the extent current assets exceed current liabilities, the principal amount of the promissory note will be reduced by an amount equal to the excess.
The principal amount of the promissory note, subject to adjustment, is payable in three installments of $.4 million by March 22, 2013, $.5 million by March 22, 2014 and $.6 million on March 22, 2015, in each case plus accrued interest at the rate of 5% per annum. The promissory note is secured by the 10,000 shares of AHCP common stock, subject to release as security upon Reliants payment of each of the first and second installment payments and the occurrence of certain other events.
Each of Reliant and Access Plans made representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement that expired on the Closing Date and agreed to certain covenants and agreements that expire by the earlier of their terms or February 22, 2014.
The foregoing summary of the Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby contained in this Item 1.01 does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
The Purchase Agreement has been included in this report to provide investors and Access Plans shareholders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Access Plans. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for purposes of that agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Purchase Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors and Access Plans shareholders. Investors are not third-party beneficiaries under the Purchase Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of Access Plans and AHCP or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in Access Plans public disclosures.
