Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets
On December 31, 2021, ICF International, Inc. (the “Company”) completed the previously announced purchase transaction, contemplated in that certain Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and among ICF Incorporated, L.L.C. (“Purchaser”), Creative Systems and Consulting, L.L.C., a Virginia limited liability company (“Creative”), Project Apple Holdings, LLC, a Virginia limited liability company and parent company of Creative, and Vinetha Khera, individually and Vishal Khera, individually and as Trustee of the Dewdrop Trust. By the terms of the Purchase Agreement, Purchaser acquired 100% of the membership interests in Creative (the “Acquisition”), which became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Purchaser and an indirect subsidiary of the Company. The Company paid the base purchase price under the Purchase Agreement in cash to Creative (which is subject to adjustment as provided in the Purchase Agreement) as previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on December 13, 2021, as amended by the amendment to the Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed on December 17, 2021.
The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement, which was filed as an exhibit by an amendment to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 13, 2021.
Cautionary Note Regarding the Purchase Agreement
The Purchase Agreement will provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms and conditions and is not intended to provide any factual information about the Company or Lucky. In particular, the assertions embodied in the representations and warranties contained in the Purchase Agreement are qualified by information in confidential disclosure schedules that the parties have exchanged in connection with the signing of the Purchase Agreement. Moreover, certain representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement were used for the purpose of allocating risk, rather than establishing matters as facts. Accordingly, investors and security holders should not rely on the representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement as characterizations of the actual state of facts, since they were made only as of the date of the Purchase Agreement and are modified in important part by the underlying confidential disclosure schedules. In addition, the representations and warranties, covenants and other terms of the Purchase Agreement may be subject to subsequent waiver or modification. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties, covenants and other terms may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
Cautionary Statements
This filing and the exhibit attached hereto contain forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If such risks or uncertainties materialize or such assumptions prove incorrect, the results of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries could differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and assumptions. All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including the expected benefits and costs of the Acquisition.
