In relation to the current reports No. 2/2017 and No. 11/2017, the Management Board of Work Service S.A. (“Issuer”) informs that on 15 March 2018, Exact Systems S.A. with its seat in Częstochowa (“Exact Systems”) concluded an Annex to the Agreement for the purchase of 100% of shares in the Portuguese limited liability company under the business name QLS AUTOMOTIVE - SERVIÇOS DE CONTROLO DE QUALIDADE, LDA dated 1 February 2017 (“Portuguese Company”) (“Shares”) (“Agreement”). The Agreement was concluded with two foreign companies (“Sellers”). The Annex concerns the change of the date of payment for the Shares and the date of their acquisition by Exact Systems, as well as the establishment of a collateral.
The total purchase price of shares will be EUR 9,650,000.00 and shall be paid as follows:
- an advance payment in the amount of EUR 500,000.00 is payable on 16 March 2018. After the payment of the advance payment plus amounts of previous advance payments, in the total amount EUR 2,120,000.00, Exact Systems will own 10% of shares in the Portuguese Company.
- the remaining 90% of shares in the Portuguese Company shall be acquired by Exact Systems after the payment of the remaining amount of EUR 7,030,000.00. The payment of the remaining price for the shares shall be made on 28 June 2018.
As the collateral to the Agreement, Exact Systems has committed to establish two pledges on 10% of shares in the Portuguese Company acquired on 16 March 2018 in favour of the Sellers: one up to the amount of EUR 1,834,000.00 and the other up to the amount of EUR 786,000.00.
If payment of the price for the remaining 90% of shares in the Portuguese Company is not made on 28 June 2018 due to the reasons attributable to Exact Systems, the Sellers may terminate the agreement and satisfy with established pledges.
If payment of the price for the remaining 90% of shares in the Portuguese Company is not made on 28 June 2018 due to the reasons attributable to the Sellers, Exact Systems may terminate the agreement. The termination of the Agreement in this manner shall result in the exercise of call options for 10% of shares acquired by Exact Systems in the Portuguese Company.
Shall the Agreement be infringed (as defined in the agreement for the sale of shares) until 28 June 2018 which will result in the loss of over 20% of the value of shares in the Portuguese Company, each Party may terminate the Agreement. The termination of the Agreement in this manner shall result in the exercise of call options for 10% of shares acquired by Exact Systems in the Portuguese Company.
The Sellers may also terminate the Agreement in case of failure of Exact Systems to deliver the original signed power of attorney for the establishment of shares referred to in above on behalf of the Exact Systems within 15 working days from the date of signing of the Agreement. In this case, the Sellers shall also have the right to hold the amount paid by the Exact Systems for 10% of Shares in the Portuguese Company and to re-transfer 10% of the Shares in the Portuguese Company.
If the payment of the price for the remaining 90% of shares in the Portuguese Company is made on 28 June 2018, the above-mentioned pledges shall expire.
The Agreement provides for the call option for 10% of Shares in the Portuguese Company which may be exercised by the Sellers within ten working days from termination of the Agreement upon payment of EUR 500,000.00 for Exact Systems. The ownership of 10% of Shares in the Portuguese Company shall be transferred to the Sellers upon crediting of the payment on the bank account of Exact Systems. In case the Sellers do not exercise the call options (each one individually) within ten working days from the termination of the Agreement, the above-mentioned pledges shall expire.
