|Item 2.01.||Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.|
On April 25, 2013, following approval by the stockholders of AutoInfo, Inc. (“AutoInfo” or the “Company”), at a special meeting of the stockholders of the Company held on April 25, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (the “Special Meeting”), of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of February 28, 2013 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, AutoInfo Holdings, LLC (“Parent”) and AutoInfo Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), and the transactions contemplated thereunder, including the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company, with the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub thereupon ceasing, and the Company continuing as the surviving corporation, as contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the “Merger”), the Merger was completed. The aggregate purchase price paid for all of the equity securities of the Company, net of certain assumed liabilities, was approximately $56,000,000, which purchase price was funded by Parent from cash on hand and committed availability under its credit facility.
|Item 3.03.||Material Modifications to Rights of Security Holders.|
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each outstanding share of AutoInfo Common Stock (except for certain shares held by AutoInfo, Parent or Merger Sub and shares held by stockholders who have properly exercised appraisal rights) was converted into the right to receive $1.05 in cash, without interest (the “per share Merger consideration”), less any applicable withholding taxes. At the Effective Time, each outstanding option became fully vested and was converted into the right to receive cash equal to the excess of the per share Merger consideration of $1.05 over the per share exercise price under such option, less any applicable withholding taxes.
|Item 5.01.||Changes in Control of Registrant.|
As a result of the Merger, the Company became a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Parent resulting in a change of control of the Company. To the Company’s knowledge, there are no arrangements, including any pledge by any person of securities of the Company or Parent, the operation of which may at a subsequent date result in a further change of control of the Company.
The information set forth in Items 2.01, 3.03 and 5.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference in this Item 5.01.
|Item 5.02.||Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.|
At the Effective Time, each of the Company’s five directors (Peter C. Einselen, Mark Patterson, Thomas C. Robertson, Harry Wachtel and Mark Weiss) voluntarily resigned as directors of the Company.
At the Effective Time, Parent, as the sole stockholder of the Company, elected Harry Wachtel, Michael P. Williams, John Caple, Adam Bentkover and Cecilio M. Rodriguez as the directors of the Company, the surviving corporation of the Merger.
Harry Wachtel, Chief Executive Officer, ceased to be an officer of the Company as of the Effective Time.
|Item 5.03.||Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.|
Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, the Company’s certificate of incorporation and bylaws were amended and restated in their entirety. The Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and the Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company are attached as Exhibit 3.1 and Exhibit 3.2, respectively.
