Asset Purchase Agreement

On October 13, 2017, Concurrent Computer Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Vecima Networks Inc. (the “Purchaser”). The Asset Purchase Agreement contemplates the sale and transfer of all of the Company’ assets and certain liabilities primarily related to the Company’s “content delivery” business to the Purchaser for a purchase price of $29 million (subject to an adjustment for net working capital). The transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement will result in the sale of substantially all of the Company’s remaining operating assets. The Asset Purchase Agreement includes customary terms and conditions, including an adjustment to the purchase price based on a normalized level of net working capital and provisions that require the Company to indemnify the Purchaser for certain losses that it incurs as a result of a breach by the Company of its representations and warranties in the Asset Purchase Agreement and certain other matters.

Proceeds from the sale will be payable to the Company as follows: (1) a $27.55 million payment to the Company in cash on the closing date (subject to an adjustment for estimated net working capital), and (2) $1.45 million placed in escrow on the closing date as security for the Company’s indemnification obligations to the Purchaser under the Asset Purchase Agreement, which amount will be released to the Company on or before the date that is twelve months from the closing date (less any portion of the escrow used to make indemnification or purchase price adjustment payments to the Purchaser).

The Asset Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of each of the parties. The Asset Purchase Agreement contains indemnification rights in favor of the Company following closing for (i) breaches of any of the representations or warranties by the Purchaser including, but not limited to, breaches related to organization, authorization, and governmental authorization, (ii) breaches of the covenants or agreements of the Purchaser in the Asset Purchase Agreement, and (iii) liabilities which the Purchaser agrees to assume in the Asset Purchase Agreement. In addition, the Asset Purchase Agreement contains indemnification rights in favor of the Purchaser following closing for (i) breaches of certain fundamental representations and warranties by the Company, including breaches related to organization, authorization, capitalization, title to purchased assets, finders’ fees, and sufficiency of purchased assets, (ii) breaches of any of the representations and warranties by the Company, (iii) breaches of the covenants or agreements of the Company in the Asset Purchase Agreement, and (iv) liabilities which the parties agreed the Purchaser would not assume to the Asset Purchase Agreement.

The completion of the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement are subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of the transactions by the Company’s stockholders.

The Asset Purchase Agreement contains specified termination rights for the parties. The Company has the right to terminate the Asset Purchase Agreement if it enters into a definitive agreement in respect of a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement), provided that the Company complies with certain notice and other requirements set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement. In such event, the Company may be required to pay Vecima a termination fee equal to $1.45 million. The Company may also be required to pay a termination fee if the Asset Purchase Agreement is terminated under certain circumstances when, prior to the termination of the Asset Purchase Agreement, an Acquisition Proposal (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) shall have been communicated to the Company and announced publically and within six (6) months after such termination the Company enters into a definitive agreement with respect to any Acquisition Proposal with another Person.

Under the terms of a non-compete agreement to be executed simultaneously with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company will agree for a period of three years following the closing of the transaction not to (i) directly or indirectly, alone or in association with any other person, own, manage, operate, control, participate in, invest in, perform services for, or otherwise carry on or engage in any business focused on the development, marketing, and supporting of software applications and solutions for video content delivery and storage technologies (a “Content Delivery Business”) anywhere in the world, (ii) without the written consent of the Purchaser, have any direct or indirect interest in any person that engages in any Content Delivery Business or competes with the Content Delivery Business of the Seller, as conducted as of the date of the closing of the transactions under the Asset Purchase Agreement, or (iii) directly or indirectly, solicit or recruit any employees being transferred as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement or to encourage any such employee to terminate his or her employment with the Purchaser.

Simultaneously with the execution of the Asset Purchase Agreement, certain stockholders of the Company that hold, in the aggregate, approximately 17% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, entered into a Voting Agreement with Vecima (the “Voting Agreement”). The Voting Agreement requires the signatories to thereto, so long as the Voting Agreement has not terminated in accordance with its terms, to vote in favor of the Company’s consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement and against any action or proposal in favor of an alternative acquisition proposal. The Voting Agreement and the obligations of the stockholders’ thereunder will terminate upon, among other things, the termination of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the withdrawal by the board of directors of its recommendation that stockholders vote to approve the Asset Purchase Agreement, or the entry by the Company, without the prior written consent of the signatories to the Voting Agreement, of an amendment to the Asset Purchase Agreement or a waiver of any term thereof which results in a material decrease in, or material change in the composition of, the purchase price payable under the Asset Purchase Agreement. The stockholders executing the Voting Agreement include all of the directors and officers of the Company that are stockholders, but solely in their capacity as stockholders. The Voting Agreement (i) does not limit or affect any actions or omissions taken by any stockholder in its capacity as a director or officer of the Company and (ii) may not be construed to prohibit, limit, or restrict any stockholder from exercising its fiduciary duties as an officer or director of the Company or its remaining stockholders. JDS1, LLC, the Company’s largest stockholder, is also a signatory to the Voting Agreement.

Simultaneously with the approval by the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) of the Company’s execution of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Board formed a subcommittee of the Board (the “Investment Committee”) to evaluate options to maximize the value of the Company’s remaining assets, which, following the closing of the transactions contemplated under the Asset Purchase Agreement, will consist primarily of (i) cash and cash equivalents and (ii) the Company’s remaining net operating loss carryforwards under federal, state, and foreign tax laws. The Board has authorized the Investment Committee to retain such counsel, experts, consultants or other professionals as the Investment Committee shall deem appropriate from time to time to aid in the Investment Committee in the performance of its duties.
