Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Asset Purchase Agreement

On June 17, 2020, Monitronics International, Inc. (the “Company”), as buyer, entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Protect America, Inc. (“Protect America”), as seller. Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired (the “Acquisition”) certain contracts for the provision of alarm detection and related services (the “Accounts”), related accounts receivable, intellectual property and equipment inventory of Protect America. The Asset Purchase Agreement provides for an up-front purchase price of $16.6 million cash at closing, subject to certain adjustments. The Asset Purchase Agreement also provides for 50 monthly payments (“Earnout Payments”) consisting of a portion of the revenue attributable to the Accounts, subject to adjustment for Accounts that are no longer active. The Asset Purchase Agreement provides for the acceleration of Earnout Payments upon a Change of Control (as specified in the Asset Purchase Agreement) or the sale of more than 5% of Active Accounts (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement).

The Asset Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants. Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company shall indemnify Protect America for breaches of its representations and warranties, breaches of covenants and any assumed liabilities. The representations and warranties set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement generally survive for one year following the closing, with longer survival periods for certain fundamental representations and warranties.

The foregoing description of the Asset Purchase Agreement is a summary, and does not purport to be complete, and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the Asset Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.

Amendments to Credit Agreements

The Amendments amended the applicable Credit Agreement to, among other things, (a) exclude earnouts, holdbacks, and similar payments (including the Earnout Payment) from consideration in the determination of the maximum amount of bulk purchases of alarm monitoring contracts permitted annually, (b) limit the recurring monthly revenue attributable to monitoring contracts with an active earnout, holdback or similar payment for the calculation of certain leverage ratios, (c) limit the annual amount permitted to be paid by the Company to buy out, accelerate, or settle any earnout, holdback or similar payments for future acquisitions structured similarly to the Acquisition prior to the original due date of such payments and (d) permit a board observer appointed by a majority of the lenders party to the Takeback Loan Facility Credit Agreement to attend meetings of the board of directors of the Company.

The foregoing description of the Amendments is a summary, and does not purport to be complete, and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the Exit Facilities Amendment and the Takeback Facility Amendment, as applicable, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
