ITEM 1.01. ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT. Share Purchase Agreement On July 2, 2014, KVH Media Group Limited ("KMG UK"), an indirectly wholly owned subsidiary of KVH Industries, Inc. (the "Company"), entered into a Share Purchase Agreement with Nigel Cleave to acquire all of the issued share capital of Super Dragon Limited ("SDL") and Videotel Marine Asia Limited ("VMA", together with SDL referred to as "Videotel"), for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $49 million. Videotel is a maritime training services company based in London that produces and distributes training films and eLearning computer-based training courses to commercial customers in the maritime market. The acquisition was consummated on the same day. The purchase price was determined through arm's-length negotiation and is subject to a potential post-closing adjustment based on the value of the net assets delivered at the closing. The Share Purchase Agreement contains certain representations, warranties, covenants and indemnification provisions. The Share Purchase Agreement provides that 10% of the purchase price shall be held in escrow for a period of approximately 21 months after the closing in order to satisfy valid indemnification claims that KMG UK may assert for specified breaches of representations, warranties and covenants. In the Share Purchase Agreement, the Seller agreed to comply with certain confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation covenants with respect to the business of Videotel for a period of 18 months after the closing. Credit Agreement and Notes On July 1, 2014, the Company entered into (i) a five-year senior credit facility agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and the lenders named from time to time as parties thereto (the "Lenders"), for an aggregate amount of up to $80,000,000, including a revolving credit facility (the "Revolver") of up to $15,000,000 and a term loan ("Term Loan") of $65,000,000 to be used for general corporate purposes, including both (A) the refinancing of the Company's current $30,000,000 outstanding indebtedness under its existing credit facility and (B) permitted acquisitions, and (ii) revolving credit notes (together, the "Revolving Credit Note") to evidence the Revolver, (iii) term notes (together, the "Term Note," and together with the Revolving Credit Note, the "Notes") to evidence the Term Loan, (iv) a Security Agreement (the "Security Agreement") required by the Lenders with respect to the grant by the Company of a security interest in substantially all of the assets of the Company in order to secure the obligations of the Company under the Credit Agreement and the Notes, and (v) Pledge Agreements (the "Pledge Agreements") required by the Lenders with respect to the grant by the Company of a security interest in 65% of the capital stock of each of KVH Industries A/S and KVH Industries U.K. Limited held by the Company in order to secure the obligations of the Company under the Credit Agreement and the Notes. Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, was the sole lead arranger and sole book runner. The $65 million Term Note was executed in connection with the acquisition of all of the outstanding shares of Videotel pursuant to the Share Purchase Agreement, on July 1, 2014. The proceeds of $35 million were applied toward the payment of a portion of the purchase price for the acquired shares of Videotel, and approximately $30 million was applied toward the refinancing of the outstanding balance of the Company's existing credit facility. The Company must make principal repayments on the Term Loan in the amount of approximately $1,219,000 at the end of each of the first eight three-month periods following the closing; thereafter, the Company must make principal repayments in the amount of $1,625,000 for each succeeding three-month period until the maturity of the loan on July 1, 2019. On the maturity date, the entire remaining principal balance of the loan, including any future loans under the Revolver, is due and payable, together with all accrued and unpaid interest, penalties and other amounts due and payable under the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement contains provisions requiring the mandatory prepayment of amounts outstanding under the Term Loan and the Revolver under specified circumstances, including (i) 100% of the net cash proceeds from certain dispositions to the extent not reinvested in the Company's business within a stated period, (ii) 50% of the net cash proceeds from stated equity issuances and (iii) 100% of the net cash proceeds from certain receipts of more than $250,000 outside the ordinary course of business. The prepayments are first applied to the Term Loan, in inverse order of maturity, and then to the Revolver. In the discretion of the Administrative Agent, certain mandatory prepayments made on the Revolver can permanently reduce the amount of credit available under the Revolver.
