Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Stock Purchase Agreement

The information set forth in Item 2.01 is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Loan Agreement
 
Effective July 1, 2012, we and our wholly-owned subsidiaries entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Deerpath Funding, LP, a Delaware limited partnership, as lender, administrative agent and collateral agent (“Deerpath”).

The Loan Agreement provides for a single advance senior secured term loan in the amount of $14,500,000, made on July 5, 2012, which were used to (i) finance the cash purchase consideration for the acquisition described in Item 2.01 below, (ii) pay outstanding indebtedness under the 15% subordinated promissory notes due September 2014 (including partial interest and subordination consent payments of $134,375 to Patrick Goepel, our Chief Executive Officer, and $80,625 to Pinnacle Fund, which is controlled by David Sandberg, our Chairman of the Board of Directors) and the JPMorgan Chase Bank line of credit, and (iii) pay transaction costs and expenses of the term loan and the acquisition.

The Loan Agreement also provides for a conditional commitment to provide additional single advance senior secured term loans from time to time in an aggregate amount not to exceed $5,000,000 to be used for refinancing certain other indebtedness, funding permitted acquisitions or other growth initiatives, and paying fees and expenses of the term loans and permitted acquisitions.

The term loan bears interest at a floating annual rate equal to LIBOR plus 8.00%, subject to a LIBOR floor of 2.00%, and requires monthly payments of interest only beginning on August 1, 2012 and quarterly principal payments of $362,500 beginning on October 1, 2012, with any remaining principal due on July 1, 2016.  We may prepay all or a portion of the principal amount outstanding at any time, subject to a premium ranging from 1% to 5% of the principal amount being prepaid depending on if the prepayment occurs on or before the first, second or third anniversary of the closing date.  The term loan requires mandatory prepayments of outstanding principal with 75% of excess cash flow (such percentage to be reduced to 50% if a specified senior debt to EBITDA ratio is achieved) and, at Deerpath’s election, with proceeds from certain events, including 100% of the net proceeds of any asset sales and issuance of equity securities.
 
The term loan is secured by a first priority lien on all of our and our subsidiaries’ assets and pledges of 100% of the equity interests in our domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the equity interests in our foreign subsidiaries.
 
 
 

 
 
The Loan Agreement contains customary covenants, including but not limited to limitations with respect to debt, liens, mergers and acquisitions, sale of assets, loans or advances to and investments in others, dividends or other distributions, capital expenditures and management compensation. We are also required to maintain EBITDA of not less than $5.65 million beginning with the quarter ending September 30, 2012, with the amount stepping up thereafter; a total debt to EBITDA ratio of not greater than 3.75 to 1.00 beginning with the quarter ending September 30, 2012, with the levels stepping down thereafter; a senior debt to EBITDA ratio of not greater than 2.75 to 1.00   beginning with the quarter ending September 30, 2012, with the levels stepping down thereafter; and a fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 0.60 to 1.00 beginning with the quarter ending September 30, 2012, with the levels stepping up thereafter. Deerpath may designate one representative to attend all meetings of our and our subsidiaries’ boards of directors as a non-voting observer.

The Loan Agreement contains customary events of default, including, among others, (i) payment defaults, (ii) covenant defaults, (iii) incorrect representations or warranties, (iv) bankruptcy and insolvency events, (v) certain cross defaults and cross accelerations, (vi) certain change of control or change of management events and (vii) certain material adverse events. In some cases, the defaults are subject to customary notice and grace period provisions.

The foregoing description of the Loan Agreement does not summarize or include all terms relating to the financing or all other actions contemplated by the Loan Agreement, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Loan Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Effective July 1, 2012, we acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Shares”) of Meeting Maker – United States, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Meeting Maker - US”), pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) by and among Meeting Maker Holding BV, a besloten vennootschap organized under the laws of the Netherlands (“Seller”), PeopleCube Holding BV, a besloten vennootschap organized under the laws of the Netherlands, and us.

The aggregate consideration for the Shares consisted of (i) $9.8 million in cash, subject to a post-closing working capital adjustment, (ii) 255,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.01 per share, and (iii) an additional $3 million in cash that is due on October 31, 2014, subject to offset of any amounts owed by Seller under the indemnification provisions of the Stock Purchase Agreement. The $9.8 million cash portion of the purchase price was funded with proceeds from the Loan Agreement. As a result of the acquisition, Meeting Maker - US became our direct wholly-owned subsidiary.

(d)   For purposes of this Article VIII , any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation or warranty shall be determined without regard to any materiality, Material Adverse Effect or other similar qualification contained in or otherwise applicable to such representation or warranty.
 
Section 8.05   Indemnification Procedures. The party making a claim under this Article VIII is referred to as the “ Indemnitee, ” and the party against whom such claims are asserted under this Article VIII is referred to as the “ Indemnifying Party ”.
 
(a)   Third Party Claims. If any Indemnitee receives notice of the assertion or commencement of any Action made or brought by any Person who is not a party to this Agreement or an Affiliate of a party to this Agreement or a Representative of the foregoing (a “ Third Party Claim ”) against such Indemnitee with respect to which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnitee shall give the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than 30 calendar days after receipt of such notice of such Third Party Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnitee shall describe the Third Party Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnitee. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnitee, to assume the defense of any Third Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense and by the Indemnifying Party’s own counsel, and the Indemnitee shall cooperate in good faith in such defense; provided, that if the Indemnifying Party is Seller, such Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to defend or direct the defense of any such Third Party Claim that (x) is asserted directly by or on behalf of a Person that is a supplier or customer of the Company, or (y) seeks an injunction or other equitable relief against the Indemnitee. In the event that the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any Third Party Claim, subject to Section 8.05(b) , it shall have the right to take such action as it deems necessary to avoid, dispute, defend, appeal or make counterclaims pertaining to any such Third Party Claim in the name and on behalf of the Indemnitee. The Indemnitee shall have the right to participate in the defense of any Third Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to the Indemnifying Party’s right to control the defense thereof. The fees and disbursements of such counsel shall be at the expense of the Indemnitee, provided, that if in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnitee, (A) there are legal defenses available to an Indemnitee that are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party; or (B) there exists a conflict of interest between the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnitee that cannot be waived, the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Indemnitee in each jurisdiction for which the Indemnitee determines counsel is required. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend such Third Party Claim, fails to promptly notify the Indemnitee in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Agreement, or fails to diligently prosecute the defense of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnitee may, subject to Section 8.05(b) , pay, compromise, defend such Third Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Losses based upon, arising from or relating to such Third Party Claim. Seller and Buyer shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third Party Claim, including making available (subject to the provisions of Section 5.02 ) records relating to such Third Party Claim and furnishing, without expense (other than reimbursement of actual out-of-pocket expenses) to the defending party, management employees of the non-defending party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of such Third Party Claim.
 
 
-49-

 
 
(b)   Settlement of Third Party Claims. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall not enter into settlement of any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, except as provided in this Section 8.05(b) . If a firm offer is made to settle a Third Party Claim without leading to liability or the creation of a financial or other obligation on the part of the Indemnitee and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnitee from all liabilities and obligations in connection with such Third Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party desires to accept and agree to such offer, the Indemnifying Party shall give written notice to that effect to the Indemnitee. If the Indemnitee fails to consent to such firm offer within ten days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnitee may continue to contest or defend such Third Party Claim and in such event, the maximum liability of the Indemnifying Party as to such Third Party Claim shall not exceed the amount of such settlement offer. If the Indemnitee fails to consent to such firm offer and also fails to assume defense of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle the Third Party Claim upon the terms set forth in such firm offer to settle such Third Party Claim. If the Indemnitee has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 8.05(a) , it shall not agree to any settlement without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
 
(c)   Direct Claims. Any Action by an Indemnitee on account of a Loss which does not result from a Third Party Claim (a “ Direct Claim ”) shall be asserted by the Indemnitee giving the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than 30 days after the Indemnitee becomes aware of such Direct Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnitee shall describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnitee. The Indemnifying Party shall have 30 days after its receipt of such notice to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. The Indemnitee shall allow the Indemnifying Party and its professional advisors to investigate the matter or circumstance alleged to give rise to the Direct Claim, and whether and to what extent any amount is payable in respect of the Direct Claim and the Indemnitee shall assist the Indemnifying Party’s investigation by giving such information and assistance (including access to the Company’s premises and personnel and the right to examine and copy any accounts, documents or records) as the Indemnifying Party or any of its professional advisors may reasonably request. If the Indemnifying Party does not so respond within such 30 day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which case the Indemnitee shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnitee on the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.
 
 
-50-

 
 
(d)   Cooperation. Upon a reasonable request by the Indemnifying Party, each Indemnitee seeking indemnification hereunder in respect of any Direct Claim, hereby agrees to consult with the Indemnifying Party and act reasonably to take actions reasonably requested by the Indemnifying Party in order to attempt to reduce the amount of Losses in respect of such Direct Claim. Any costs or expenses associated with taking such actions shall be included as Losses hereunder.
 
(e)   Tax Claims. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the control of any claim, assertion, event or proceeding in respect of Taxes of the Company (including, but not limited to, any such claim in respect of a breach of the representations and warranties in Section 3.22 hereof or any breach or violation of or failure to fully perform any covenant, agreement, undertaking or obligation in Article VI ) shall be governed exclusively by Article VI hereof.
 
Section 8.06   Payments; Offset and Holdback from Deferred Purchase Payment. Once a Loss is agreed to by the Indemnifying Party or finally adjudicated to be payable pursuant to this Article VIII , the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations within 15 Business Days of such final, non-appealable adjudication by wire transfer of immediately available funds. The parties hereto agree that should an Indemnifying Party not make full payment of any such obligations within such 15 Business Day period, any amount payable shall accrue interest from and including the date of agreement of the Indemnifying Party or final, non-appealable adjudication to and including the date such payment has been made at a rate per annum equal to 8%. Such interest shall be calculated daily on the basis of a 365 day year and the actual number of days elapsed, without compounding, and the party owing the payment shall be responsible for any costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. If the Indemnifying Party is the Seller, Buyer may, at its option, elect to offset any amount owing from Seller under this Article VIII or under Article VI against any unpaid portion of the Deferred Purchase Payment. Further, to the extent that Third Party Claim or Direct Claim, or any matter that is the subject of Article VI , pursuant to which Seller is the Indemnifying Party under this Article VIII or prospectively obliged to reimburse and/or pay pursuant to Article VI , is not resolved prior to the due date of the Deferred Purchase Payment, the Buyer may withhold from the Deferred Purchase Payment such amounts as it reasonably determines will be required to resolve the pending matter. Upon resolution thereof, the Buyer shall promptly remit any remaining portion of the Deferred Purchase Payment to Seller. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that an amount is so withheld after the deadline for the Deferred Purchase Payment, such withheld amount shall be placed in escrow with a third party pursuant to a written agreement whose terms shall be subject to Seller’s approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
 
 
-51-

 
 
Section 8.07   Tax Treatment of Indemnification Payments. All indemnification payments made under this Agreement shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Law.
 
Section 8.08   Effect of Investigation. The representations, warranties and covenants of the Indemnifying Party, and the Indemnitee’s right to indemnification with respect thereto, shall not be affected or deemed waived by reason of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Indemnitee (including by any of its Representatives) or by reason of the fact that the Indemnitee or any of its Representatives knew or should have known that any such representation or warranty is, was or might be inaccurate or by reason of the Indemnitee’s waiver of any condition set forth in Section 7.02 or Section 7.03 , as the case may be.
 
Section 8.09   Exclusive Remedies. Subject to Section 5.03 and Article VI, the parties acknowledge and agree that their sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims (other than claims arising from fraud, criminal activity or willful misconduct on the part of a party hereto in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation set forth herein or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in Article VI and this Article VIII . In furtherance of the foregoing, each party hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted under Law, any and all rights, claims and causes of action for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation set forth herein or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement it may have against the other parties hereto and their Affiliates and each of their respective Representatives arising under or based upon any Law, except pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in Article VI and this Article VIII . Nothing in this Section 8.09 shall limit any Person’s right to seek and obtain any equitable relief to which any Person shall be entitled or to seek any remedy on account of any Person’s fraudulent, criminal or intentional misconduct.

(a)   Term Loan Interest Rate .  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Term Loan Principal Debt shall accrue interest at a floating annual rate equal to LIBOR plus eight percent (8.00%) per annum (the “ Term Loan Interest Rate ”).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Term Loan Interest Rate shall not at any time be (i) less than ten percent (10.00%) per annum nor (ii) greater than the Maximum Rate.
 
(b)   Changes in Maximum Rate .  Each change in the Maximum Rate is effective as of the effective date of such change without notice to Borrowers or any other Person.
 
3.5.   Default Rate .  To the extent permitted by Law, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Default, Term Loan Principal Debt shall accrue interest, payable on demand, at an annual rate equal to the lesser of (a) three percent (3.00%) per annum plus the Term Loan Interest Rate and (b) the Maximum Rate (such interest rate, the “ Default Rate ”).  Subject to Section 3.7 , Lenders may, to the extent permitted by Law, in their sole discretion, add accrued and unpaid interest to the Term Loan Principal Debt, as applicable, after any such amount is due in accordance with this Agreement, and such amount will accrue interest until paid at the applicable interest rate.

3.6.   Interest Calculations .  Interest on the Loans and all other amounts due under any Loan Document will be calculated on the basis of actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) but computed as if each calendar year consisted of 360 days (unless such computation would result in an interest rate in excess of the Maximum Rate or interest in excess of the Maximum Amount, in which event the computation is made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be).  All interest rate determinations and calculations by Lenders are presumptively correct absent manifest error.
 
3.7.   Maximum Rate .  Regardless of any provision in any Loan Document, it is the intention of Borrowers and Lenders that Lenders not (a) contract for, charge, take, reserve, receive, or apply, as interest on all or any part of the Obligation any amount in excess of the Maximum Rate or the Maximum Amount or (b) receive any unearned interest, in violation of any applicable Law.  If any acceleration of the maturity of the Notes or any payment under the Loan Documents produces a rate in excess of the Maximum Rate, or if Lenders shall for any reason receive any such unearned interest, or if any transaction contemplated hereby or by any other Loan Document would otherwise be usurious under applicable Law, then (i) the aggregate of all interest under applicable usury laws that is contracted for, charged, taken, reserved, received or applied under this Agreement, or under any of the other Loan Documents or otherwise shall under no circumstances exceed the Maximum Amount, (ii) no Borrower nor any other Person shall be obligated to pay the amount of such interest to the extent that it is in excess of the Maximum Amount, (iii) any excess or unearned interest shall be deemed to be and shall be treated as a partial prepayment or repayment of principal (not subject to any prepayment premium under Section 2.4 ) and any remaining excess or unearned interest will be refunded to Borrowers, and (iv) the provisions of this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents immediately shall be deemed reformed, without the necessity of the execution of any new document or instrument, so as to comply with all applicable usury laws.  In determining whether interest paid or payable exceeds the Maximum Rate or the Maximum Amount, Borrowers and Lenders shall, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable Law (w) treat all Loans as a single extension of credit (Lenders and Borrowers agree that such is the case), (x) characterize any non-principal payment as an expense, fee or premium rather than as interest, (y) exclude voluntary prepayments or repayments and their effects, and (z) amortize, prorate, allocate and spread the total amount of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of the Obligation.  However, if the Obligation is paid in full before the end of its full contemplated term, and if the interest received for its actual period of existence exceeds the Maximum Rate or the Maximum Amount, Lenders shall refund any excess (and Lenders may not, to the extent permitted by Law, be subject to any penalties provided by any Laws for contracting for, charging, taking, reserving or receiving interest in excess of the Maximum Amount).  If the applicable Law is amended in the future to allow a greater rate of interest to be charged under this Agreement than is presently allowed by applicable Law, then the “ Maximum Rate ” shall be increased to the maximum rate of interest allowed by applicable Law as amended, which increase shall be effective hereunder on the effective date of such amendment, to the extent permitted by applicable Law.
 
3.8.   Cost of Money Ceiling .  If the “cost of money” (including interest and certain prepayment penalties and other consideration, as more fully defined in 13 C.F.R. §107.855) payable on the Loans is in excess of the maximum permissible rate (the “ SBA Maximum Rate ”) permitted under 13 C.F.R. §107.855, that is the greater of nineteen percent or the cost of money ceiling calculated pursuant to that section, then at the election of any Lender (a) any “cost of money” payable on the Loans in excess of that SBA Maximum Rate shall be treated as a repayment of principal (not subject to any prepayment premium under Section 2.4 ), (b) any remaining cost of money will be refunded to Borrowers, and (c) the provisions of this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents immediately shall be deemed reformed, without the necessity of the execution of any new document or instrument, so as to comply with 13 C.F.R. §107.855.

(b)   Tranche B Loan .  On the Loan Date for any Additional Term Loan, Borrowers shall pay to Lenders (i) a structuring fee with respect to such Additional Term Loan in an amount equal to one percent (1.00%) of such Additional Term Loan, and (ii) a closing fee with respect to such Additional Term Loan in an amount equal to two percent (2.00%) of such Additional Term Loan.
 
(c)   Other Fees and Expenses .  On the date of each advance of a Loan to Borrowers, Borrowers shall pay in cash to Lenders any other fees and expenses provided for in Section 8.11 hereof (net of any expense deposit).
