Merger Agreement with Synacor, Inc.
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.
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 mid-2020.
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recognized transaction-related expenses related to the Company's Merger Agreement with Synacor, Inc. totaling $811,000, which are included within general and administrative expenses in the Company's condensed consolidated statement of operations.
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.
