In connection therewith, Synchronoss delivered all notices and took all other actions to facilitate and cause the termination of the Prior Credit Agreement, the repayment in full of all obligations then outstanding thereunder and the release of any security interests in connection therewith, effective as of November14, 2017. The aggregate payoff amount was approximately $898 million and included all accrued interest, fees and prepayment penalties associated therewith.

Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

to the Share Purchase Agreement, on November14, 2017, Synchronoss consummated the sale of Intralinks. At the closing of the Intralinks Transaction,Impala acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Intralinks for approximately $991 million in cash, subject to post-closing adjustments for changes in cash, debt and working capital. If, in the future,Impala receives net cash proceeds in excess of $440 million from any sale of equity or assets of Intralinks, or a dividend or distribution in respect of the shares of Intralinks, then Impala is required to pay Synchronoss up to an additional $25 million in cash or publicly traded securities. Immediately following the consummation of the Intralinks Transaction, Synchronoss paid to Impala $5 million as partial reimbursement of the out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred by Impala, Siris and their respective affiliates in connection with the execution of the Share Purchase Agreement and the Intralinks Transaction.

The total amount of funds used to complete the Intralinks Transaction and related transactions and pay related fees and expenses was approximately $1 billion, which was funded through a combination of equity and debt financing obtained by Impala.
