Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

The disclosure included in Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets. 

 

As previously disclosed, on May 15, 2023, HEICO Corporation, a Florida corporation (the “Company”) and its newly formed wholly owned subsidiary Magnolia MergeCo Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) to acquire Jazz Parent, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Target”), the owner of Wencor Group (“Wencor”), with the Target and Jazz Topco GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, solely in its capacity as representative for purposes of certain provisions of the Merger Agreement. Wencor is a large commercial and military aircraft aftermarket company offering factory-new FAA-approved aircraft replacement parts, value-added distribution of high-use commercial & military aftermarket parts and aircraft & engine accessory component repair and overhaul services.

 

On August 4, 2023, the Company consummated the previously announced Merger (as defined below). As contemplated by the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into the Target, with the Target continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Target's stockholders received (i) cash consideration in an amount equal to $1.9 billion, less certain working capital, debt and other customary adjustments set forth in the Merger Agreement and (ii) 1,137,628 validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Class A Common Stock"). The Company funded the cash consideration with proceeds from its recent offering of $600 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.250% Senior Notes due 2028 and $600 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.350% Senior Notes due 2033 and funds available under its revolving credit facility. Also, on August 8, 2023, the Company terminated the commitment letter, dated May 14, 2023, with Truist Bank and Truist Securities, Inc., as amended, relating to a bridge financing to finance a portion of the Merger as such financing was no longer necessary.

 

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

 

In connection with the Merger, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement, dated August 4, 2023 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), by and among the Company and Holders (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement (i) the Company agreed to file a resale registration statement for the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) immediately following the closing of the Merger and (ii) the Holders were granted certain registration rights with respect to registration statements filed subsequent to the closing of the Merger. On August 4, 2023, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-3ASR to register the resale of 1,054,606 shares of Class A Common Stock issued in connection with the Merger (the “Registration Statement”). The Registration Statement was automatically effective upon filing pursuant to Rule 462(e) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

 

The foregoing description of the Registration Rights Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety to the full text of the Registration Rights Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The disclosure included in Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference. The issuance of the shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock in Item 2.01 were not registered under the Securities Act, in accordance with Section 4(a)(2) of Regulation D as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering.
