Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On October 13, 2020 (the “Closing Date”) 10x Genomics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), completed its previously announced acquisition of ReadCoor, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“ReadCoor”), pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of October 5, 2020, by and among the Company, Library Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Sub I”), Library Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Sub II”), ReadCoor and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, a Colorado limited liability company, in its capacity as the representative of the securityholders of ReadCoor.
On the Closing Date, Sub I merged with and into ReadCoor, with ReadCoor continuing as the surviving entity and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “First Merger”) and, as a part of the same overall transaction, the surviving entity of the First Merger will be merged with and into Sub II, with Sub II continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Second Merger”, and together with the First Merger, the “Mergers”).
In connection with the consummation of the Mergers (the “Closing”), the Company will pay a total consideration of $350 million in exchange for all outstanding equity interests of ReadCoor, subject to customary purchase price adjustments and holdback arrangements in accordance with the Merger Agreement (the “Merger Consideration”). The Merger Consideration to be paid to the former equityholders of ReadCoor consists, in the aggregate, of $100 million in cash (reduced by the amount of any transaction-related expenses, indebtedness and any working capital shortfall of ReadCoor at the Closing) and the balance in shares (the “Stock Consideration”) of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Company Common Stock”). The Company will issue 1,901,402 shares of Company Common Stock in connection with the Stock Consideration.
The Company will issue the Company Common Stock in reliance upon the exemptions from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Each recipient of shares of Company Common Stock in the First Merger has represented to the Company that such recipient is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Company has agreed to file a registration statement on Form S-3 following the Closing covering the resale of the Stock Consideration to be issued to eligible former equityholders of ReadCoor.
The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties, covenants, closing conditions and indemnities customary for acquisitions of this type. The foregoing descriptions of the Merger Agreement, the Mergers and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the full text of the Merger Agreement, which the Company intends to file as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020.
