On February 11, 2020, Qumu entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) for a proposed “merger of equals” transaction with Synacor, Inc. (“Synacor”), and Quantum Merger Sub I, Inc., a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Synacor (“Merger Sub”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and subject to the conditions in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into Qumu (the “Merger”), with Qumu surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Synacor. At the effective time of the Merger, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Synacor, Qumu, Merger Sub or any holder of any of the securities of Synacor, Qumu or Merger Sub, each share of common stock of Qumu issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time (other than the shares that are owned by Qumu, Synacor or Merger Sub) will be converted into the right to receive 1.61 newly issued shares of common stock of Synacor.
Immediately prior to the effective time, each currently outstanding Qumu restricted stock award, restricted stock unit and stock option (the “Qumu Stock Awards”) will become fully vested and any restrictions or risk of forfeiture will lapse. Any Qumu Common Stock required to be issued to the holder of such Qumu Stock Award following such acceleration of vesting or lapse of restrictions shall be deemed to be issued and outstanding as of immediately prior to the effective time and converted into the right to receive Synacor Common Stock at the exchange ratio.
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the effective time, each currently outstanding Qumu stock option will terminate and be cancelled, with the holder thereof becoming entitled to receive, on the date on which the effective time occurs, an amount in cash, without interest and subject to applicable withholding, equal to: (i) the excess, if any, of (A) the last reported sales price on Nasdaq of one share of Qumu Common Stock on the Closing Date over (B) the exercise price per share of Qumu Common Stock subject to such Qumu stock option multiplied by (ii) the number of shares of Qumu Common Stock subject to such Qumu stock option at the effective time. However, if the exercise price of such Qumu stock option is equal to or greater than the last reported sales price on Nasdaq on such date, such Qumu stock option will terminate and be cancelled without any consideration being payable in respect thereof.
At the effective time, by virtue of the Merger and without necessity of any further action, each Qumu equity award that is granted on or after February 11, 2020, is held by a then current service provider of Qumu and is outstanding immediately prior to the effective time will be assumed by Synacor as specified in the Merger Agreement.
The consummation of the Merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, the approval of the Merger Agreement by Qumu shareholders and the approval of the issuance of shares of Synacor common stock pursuant to the Merger Agreement by the Synacor stockholders. The parties expect the Merger will be completed in the second quarter of calendar year 2020.
The foregoing description of the Merger and Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC on February 11, 2020. In addition, see Part I – Item 1A – Risk Factors – Risks Relating to the Merger.
In connection with the Merger, each holder of a warrant will have the right to receive, upon exercise of the warrant, 1.61 newly issued shares of common stock of Synacor for each share of Qumu common stock then issuable upon such exercise of the warrant. Alternatively, the ESW warrant and Hale warrant each provide that at the request of the holder, Qumu must purchase the warrant from such holder for a purchase price, payable in cash, equal to the greater of the original issuance value in respect of the remaining unexercised portion of the warrant and the Black-Scholes value of the remaining unexercised portion of the warrant through the date of the consummation of the Merger as determined in accordance the warrant. The original issuance value of the ESW warrant is $1,936,535 and the original issuance value of the Hale warrant is $915,389. The iStudy warrant holder has no right to require a cash purchase of the warrant and the portion of the iStudy warrant not exercised prior to the closing of the Merger will expire at the time of the closing of the Merger. The rights of the holders of the ESW warrant and the Hale warrant to exercise the warrants will expire at the closing of the Merger and any cash purchase price must be paid within five trading days of the request that Qumu purchase the warrant.
