(the “Company”) (solely with respect to certain limited provisions) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with KIK International LLC (the “Buyer”), to which the Sellers agreed to sell to the Buyer certain assets (the “Purchased Assets”), including certain intellectual property rights, associated with a number of the Sellers’ household cleaning product business lines (the “Businesses”) and the Buyer agreed to assume certain liabilities related to the Businesses (collectively, the “Transaction”). The purchase price for the Purchased Assets was $69,000,000, subject to certain adjustments.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants from the parties and indemnification rights after the closing of the Transaction that are customary for transactions of this type, subject to certain limitations set forth therein. The Purchase Agreement also contains a non-competition clause to which the Company may not and may not permit its subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, engage in the business of developing, manufacturing, packaging, offering for sale, selling or marketing household cleaning product in North America, subject to certain exceptions described in the Purchase Agreement.

As a condition to the Purchase Agreement, the Sellers, the Buyer and Prestige Brands, Inc. (as guarantor only) entered into a Transition Services Agreement on the Closing Date, to which the Sellers will provide certain services to the Buyer related to the transition of the Businesses for the periods specified for the services in the Transition Services Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Transaction and the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which the Company intends to file as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

When filed, the Purchase Agreement will be included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It will not be intended to provide any other factual information about the Company or the Sellers. The Purchase Agreement contains warranties and covenants that the Sellers, on one hand, and the Buyer, on the other hand, made to each other as of specific dates. The assertions embodied in those warranties and covenants were made solely for purposes of the Purchase Agreement between the parties and may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by the parties in connection with negotiating its terms, including being qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties in connection with the execution of the Purchase Agreement. Moreover, the warranties may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality that may be different from what may be viewed as material to investors or security holders, or may have been used for the purpose of allocating risk between the parties to the Purchase Agreement rather than establishing matters as facts. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures. For the foregoing reasons, no person should rely on the warranties contained in the Purchase Agreement as statements of factual information at the time they were made or otherwise.
