Cable TV Segment Stock Purchase Agreement with Leveling 8 Inc

On December 26, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement to sell the Cable TV segment business to Leveling 8 Inc, a company controlled by David Chymiak, the Company’s Chief Technology Officer, director and a substantial shareholder.

The Agreement provides for a purchase price of $10.3 million, which consists of $3.9 million payable in cash at closing and a $6.4 million promissory note to be paid in semi-annual installments over five years with an interest rate of 6.0%. The transaction was negotiated and approved by a committee of independent directors and is subject to shareholder approval, including approval by the holders of a majority of the shares which are unaffiliated with the buyer, and is anticipated to occur in the third fiscal quarter of 2019.

Although the Company is prohibited from soliciting other offers for its Cable TV segment, the agreement does permit its board of directors to consider and approve a superior unsolicited acquisition proposal.
