Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 30, 2013, we entered into a common stock purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with various investors relating to the sale of 662,003 shares (“Shares”) of our common stock, par value $0.01 per share, at a price per share of $5.31.  We sold the Shares pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-185448) and a related prospectus supplement.

We received net proceeds from the offering of approximately $3.5 million, after deducting estimated expenses. On May 31, 2013, we used $2 million of the funds to make a principal payment under our loan agreement with Deerpath Funding, LP.  We plan to use the balance of the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of additional outstanding debt.

Some of our directors and entities affiliated with our directors participated in the offering:

·  
Patrick Goepel, one of our directors and our Chief Executive Officer, purchased 37,664 shares of common stock in the offering.

·  
Matt Behrent, one of our directors, purchased 7,532 shares of common stock in the offering.

·  
J. Randall Waterfield, one of our directors, purchased 94,161 shares of common stock in the offering.

·  
David Sandberg, our Chairman, purchased, directly or through his affiliated entities, 94,161 shares of common stock in the offering.

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, the form of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Item 8.01  Other Events

In December 2012, we demanded a purchase price adjustment from PeopleCube Holding B.V. and Meeting Maker Holding B.V., the sellers of the capital stock of Meeting Maker – United States, Inc. (dba PeopleCube) that we purchased in July 2012, based on matters we discovered after closing.  After we made our demand, the sellers filed a complaint against us in Suffolk County, Massachusetts (File No. SUCV2013-0880-BLS1) seeking an order declaring that we waived the right to obtain a purchase price reduction.  The sellers allege that we did not comply with the certain provisions in the purchase agreement.  We maintain that we did comply with the purchase price adjustment provisions and are vigorously defending against the sellers’ claim.  We also have our own   lawsuit pending in federal court in Austin, Texas seeking an order for the sellers to comply with the purchase agreement purchase price adjustment provisions.

In May 2013, the sellers amended their original complaint to allege misrepresentations and omissions by us in connection with the purchase transaction.  The sellers seek an unspecified amount of damages and the trebling of such damages once calculated.  We believe these claims for damages are without merit and are defending against them vigorously.

           Re:           Prospectus Supplement to Registration Statement on Form S-3
 
Ladies and Gentlemen:
 
We have acted as counsel to Asure Software, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the preparation and filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) of a Prospectus Supplement, dated May 29, 2013 (the “Prospectus Supplement”), to a Registration Statement (File No 333-185448 ) on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Prospectus Supplement relates to the sale of an aggregate of 662,003 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) pursuant to a common stock purchase agreement dated May 30, 2013 by and between the Company and each purchaser that is a signatory thereto.  The form of the common stock purchase agreement will be filed as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company in connection with the sale of the Shares.
 
We have examined such documents and have reviewed such questions of law as we have considered necessary and appropriate for the purpose of rendering this opinion.  We have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the legal capacity of natural persons, the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, and the conformity to authentic originals of all documents submitted to us as copies.
 
Based upon and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, when issued and sold in accordance with the common stock purchase agreement and the Prospectus Supplement, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
 
We consent to the filing of this opinion with SEC as an exhibit to the Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company in connection with the sale of the Shares and to the use of our name in the Prospectus Supplement under the caption “Legal Matters.”  In giving this consent, we do not admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and regulations of the SEC.
 
Very truly yours,
 
/s/ MESSERLI & KRAMER P.A.
