On January 18, 2023, Live Ventures acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests (“Equity Interests”) of Flooring Liquidators, Inc., Elite Builder Services, Inc., 7 Day Stone, Inc., Floorable, LLC, K2L Leasing, LLC, and SJ & K Equipment, Inc. (collectively, the “Acquired Companies”). The Acquired Companies are leading retailers and installers of floors, carpets, and countertops to consumers, builders and contractors in California and Nevada.

The acquisition was pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an effective date of January 18, 2023 (the “Effective Date”) by and among the Company, Buyer, Stephen J. Kellogg, as the seller representative of the equity holders of the Acquired Companies and individually in his capacity as an equity holder of the Acquired Companies (“Kellogg” or the “Seller Representative”), and the other equity holders of the Acquired Companies (collectively with Kellogg, the “Sellers”). The purchase price for the Equity Interests was $85.0 million less Estimated Indebtedness (other than Repaid Indebtedness), Estimated Selling Expenses (inclusive of $1.2 million of transaction bonuses which are deemed to be assumed liabilities for accounting purposes, such that the net purchase price for accounting purposes is $83.8 million), the RSU Value and the Retention Bonus (each as defined in the Purchase Agreement) (subject to adjustment, the “Purchase Price”). On the Effective Date, the Purchase Price was paid as follows:

$41.4 million in cash to the Seller Representative (on behalf of and for further distribution to the Sellers), calculated as follows: (A) the Purchase Price minus (B) the Holdback Amount of $2.0 million (defined in the Purchase Agreement), minus (C) the Note Amount (defined below) minus (D) the Share Amount (defined below), minus (E) Estimated Selling Expenses of $1.6 million (inclusive of $1.2 million of transaction bonuses), and minus (F) $2.0 million of additional consideration (described below) and was funded in part through cash in the Acquired Companies’ bank accounts on the Effective Date;
$34.0 million (the “Note Amount”) to certain trusts for the benefit of Kellogg and members of his family (the “Kellogg Trusts”) pursuant to the issuance by Buyer of a subordinated promissory note (the “Note”) in favor of the Kellogg Trusts;
$4.0 million to the Kellogg 2022 Family Irrevocable Nevada Trust by issuance of 116,441 shares of Parent Common Stock (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) (the “Share Amount”), calculated in the manner described in the Purchase Agreement; and
$2.0 million of additional consideration, comprised of $1.0 million in cash and $1.0 million in restricted stock units.
