Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE:SAIC) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01. Entry into Material Definitive Agreement
Agreement and Plan of Merger
On September 9, 2018, Science Applications International Corporation (“SAIC”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Engility Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Engility”), and Raptors Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC (the “Merger Sub”).
to the Merger Agreement and upon the terms and subject to the conditions described therein, Merger Sub will merge with and into Engility, with Engility continuing as the surviving entity and as a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC (the “Merger”). to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each issued and outstanding share of Engility’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share ( “Engility Common Stock”), will be converted into the right to receive 0.450 of a share (the “Exchange Ratio”) of SAIC’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share(“SAIC Common Stock”). Outstanding Engility equity awards will be converted, based upon the Exchange Ratio, into equivalent equity awards of SAIC on substantially the same terms and conditions; provided that Engility’s performance-based awards will convert into an equivalent number of SAIC time-vesting restricted stock units based on the terms of the applicable Engility award agreement. Following the Effective Time, SAIC will expand its board of directors to consist of eleven members, two of which will be Engility designees.
The Merger Agreement contains customary representations and warranties from both SAIC and Engility, each with respect to its and its subsidiaries’ businesses, and each party has agreed to customary covenants, including, among others, covenants relating to the conduct of its business during the period between the execution of the Merger Agreement and the Effective Time. Each party has resolved to call a meeting of its stockholders to approve, in the case of SAIC, the issuance of the shares of SAIC Common Stock constituting the consideration to be received by Engility’s stockholders in the Merger (the “SAIC Stockholder Approval”), and, in the case of Engility, the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger (the “Engility Stockholder Approval”). Each party’s board of directors has resolved to recommend that its stockholders vote in favor of such approvals, and not to withhold, withdraw, qualify or modify in an adverse manner, such recommendation, subject to certain limited exceptions described below.
The SAIC board of directors may change its recommendation if, as a result of a material development or change in circumstances that was not known to, or reasonably foreseeable by, the SAIC board prior to the execution of the Merger Agreement (an “Intervening Event”), the SAIC board determines in good faith (after consultation with its outside counsel and its financial advisor) that the failure to take such action would be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable law. The Engility board of directors has a similar right to change its recommendation in the event of an Intervening Event relating to Engility. The Engility board also is permitted to change its recommendation if it receives an unsolicited alternative proposal that the board determines (after consultation with outside counsel and its financial advisor) is more favorable to the Engility stockholders than the Merger, and that the failure to change its recommendation would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable law.
Both SAIC and Engility have agreed to customary non-solicitation covenants that prohibit them from soliciting proposals or entering into discussions or negotiations or providing confidential information in connection with certain proposals for an alternative acquisition. However, if the Engility board determines in good faith (after consultation with outside counsel and its financial advisor) that an alternative acquisition proposal constitutes or could reasonably be expected to result in a “superior proposal,” and that the failure to take any action would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable law, Engility may furnish information to, and negotiate with, the third party making such alternative proposal.
If SAIC receives an unsolicited proposal (whether for stock or cash consideration) to acquire SAIC, SAIC has the right to respond to such proposal and furnish information to and negotiate with the third party making such proposal, only if the proposal requires, as a condition to the consummation of such proposal, either that SAIC first consummate the Merger with Engility or that the Merger Agreement is terminated as a result of the Engility Stockholder Approval not being obtained.
The completion of the Merger is subject to customary conditions, including: (a) receipt of the SAIC Stockholder Approval and the Engility Stockholder Approval; (b) the termination or expiration of the Hart-Scott-Rodino waiting period; (c) the absence of any law or order from any court or governmental entity preventing or prohibiting the Merger; (d) the approval for listing by the NYSE of the SAIC Common Stock to be issued in the Merger; (e) that a registration statement on Form S-4 for the SAIC Common Stock to be issued in the Merger will have been declared
effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission; (f) the receipt by Engility of a tax opinion and other certificates; (g) the representations and warranties of Engility and SAIC being true and correct, subject to the materiality standards contained in the Merger Agreement; (h) the parties having complied in all material respects with their respective obligations under the Merger Agreement; and (i) no Company Material Adverse Effect or Parent Material Adverse Effect (each as defined in the Merger Agreement) having occurred since signing of the Merger Agreement.
The Merger Agreement provides customary termination rights for both SAIC and Engility including if (a) the Merger is not consummated by June 10, 2019 (the “Termination Date”), (b) the Engility Stockholder Approval is not obtained, (c) the SAIC Stockholder Approval is not obtained and (d) any final and non-appealable law or judgment prohibits consummation of the Merger. The Merger Agreement also provides certain termination rights for the benefit of SAIC, including (i) if Engility’s board of directors changes its recommendation in relation to the Merger or (ii) for a breach of any representation, warrant, covenant or agreement made by Engility under the Merger Agreement (subject to certain procedures and materiality exceptions). The Merger Agreement also provides certain termination rights for the benefit of Engility, including (i) if the SAIC board of directors changes its recommendation in relation to the Merger and (ii) for a breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made by SAIC under the Merger Agreement (subject to certain procedures and materiality exceptions).
Engility would be required to pay a termination fee of $50,000,000 plus SAIC’s expenses upon termination of the Merger Agreement by SAIC, if the Engility board of directors changes its recommendation that its stockholders vote in favor of the transaction or if Engility consummates an alternative acquisition proposal within twelve (12) months following the date of termination of the Merger Agreement as a result of failing to (i) consummate the transaction prior to the Termination Date or (ii) obtain the Engility Stockholder Approval; provided that an acquisition proposal was publicly made and not withdrawn prior to such termination. SAIC’s expenses have been fixed at $10,000,000.
SAIC would be required to pay a termination fee of $100,000,000 plus Engility’s expenses upon termination of the Merger Agreement by Engility, if the SAIC board of directors changes its recommendation that its stockholders vote in favor of the transaction or if SAIC consummates an alternative acquisition proposal within twelve (12) months following the date of termination of the Merger Agreement as a result of failing to (i) consummate the transaction prior to the Termination Date or (ii) obtain the SAIC Stockholder Approval; provided that an acquisition proposal was publicly made and not withdrawn prior to such termination. Engility’s expenses have been fixed at $10,000,000.
In addition, on September 9, 2018, to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Birch Partners, L.P. a Delaware limited partnership (“Birch”), entered into a Voting Agreement (the “Voting Agreement”) with SAIC and Engility and, for purposes of certain sections thereof, certain investment funds affiliated with Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (“KKR”) and certain investment funds affiliated with General Atlantic LLC (“GA”). Birch owns 17,920,892 shares, or approximately 48.48% of the total outstanding shares, of Engility’s Common Stock as of September 5, 2018 (such shares, the “Covered Shares”).
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Voting Agreement, Birch has agreed, among other things, to vote the Covered Shares in favor of the adoption of the Merger Agreement to fullest extent Birch is permitted to do so under the existing Stockholders Agreement, dated as of February 26, 2015, among Engility, Birch and, for certain limited purposes set forth therein, KKR and GA, as amended by that First Amendment to the Stockholders Agreement, dated February 28, 2018 (as amended, the “Stockholders Agreement”). to the Stockholders Agreement, Birch is entitled to vote 30% of the total outstanding shares of Engility Common Stock in favor of the adoption of the Merger Agreement. In addition, under the Stockholders Agreement, Birch is obligated to vote its shares of Engility Common Stock in excess of 30% of the total outstanding shares of Engility Common Stock in the same manner as, and in the same proportion to, all shares of Engility Common Stock voted by holders of Engility Common Stock (excluding those votes of Birch that represent up to 30% of all issued and outstanding shares of Engility Common Stock).
The Voting Agreement also restricts Birch, among other things, from transferring or agreeing to transfer any of the Covered Shares during its term, except to an equityholder of Birch who agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Voting Agreement. Birch, GA and KKR are also restricted from initiating or engaging in discussions or solicitations, or encouraging inquiries, with respect to alternate transactions involving Engility. The Voting Agreement terminates upon the earliest of (i) the Effective Time, (ii) the termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms, (iii) if the Engility board changes its recommendation to its stockholders to vote in favor of the Merger and (iv) if the Merger Agreement is amended without the prior written consent of Birch which
amendment either reduces the amount or changes the form of the merger consideration to be received by Engility stockholders or otherwise materially adversely affects Birch.
The foregoing descriptions of the Merger Agreement and Voting Agreement are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto, and the Voting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.2 hereto, both of which are incorporated herein by reference.
