Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Stock Purchase Agreement

On March 20, 2016, we signed an agreement for, and on March 21, 2016, we closed on, the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Shares”) of Mangrove Employer Services, Inc. of Tampa, Florida (“Mangrove”), pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement dated March 18, 2016 (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”), among us, Mangrove, the sellers identified therein, and Richard S. Cangemi, as Stockholder Representative. Pursuant to this stock purchase, we acquired the payroll division of Mangrove. The aggregate consideration for the Shares consisted of (i) $11,348,000 in cash, a portion of which was used to pay certain obligations of Mangrove and (ii) a secured subordinated promissory note (the “Note”) in the principal amount of $6 million, subject to adjustment as provided in the Stock Purchase Agreement. We funded the cash payment with proceeds from our credit agreement with Wells Fargo. The Note bears interest at an annual rate of 3.50% and matures on March 18, 2018, with the first installment of principal due on March 18, 2017 and the second installment of principal due on March 18, 2018. The Stock Purchase Agreement contains certain customary representations, warranties, indemnities and covenants.

The foregoing description of the Stock Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Stock Purchase Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Asset Purchase Agreement

On March 20, 2016, we signed an agreement for, and on March 21, 2016, we (through a wholly owned subsidiary) closed on, the acquisition of substantially all the assets of Mangrove COBRAsource Inc., then a wholly owned subsidiary of Mangrove (“Mangrove COBRAsource”), pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement, dated March 18, 2016 (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”). The aggregate consideration for the assets was $1,036,000, which Mangrove COBRAsource applied to payoff certain loan balances. The Asset Purchase Agreement contains certain customary representations, warranties, indemnities and covenants.

The foregoing description of the Asset Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Asset Purchase Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Amendment to Credit Agreement

On March 21, 2016, we entered into Amendment Number Five to Credit Agreement (the “Fifth Amendment”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, amending the terms of the Credit Agreement dated effective as of March 20, 2014, as amended.

Under the Fifth Amendment, we expanded our overall credit facility by $12,500,000 to $29,187,500. This includes a $26,187,500 term facility which is due March 21, 2019 and a $3,000,000 revolving credit facility.  The Fifth Amendment also amends the applicable margin rates for determining the interest rate payable on the loan as follows:

Total Leverage Ratio
Base Rate Margin
LIBOR Rate Margin
≤ 2.75:1
3.50%
4.50%
> 2.75:1 but ≤ 3.25:1
4.00%
5.00%
3.25:1
4.50%
5.50%

The outstanding principal amount of the term loan is payable follows:
·  $491,015.63 on June 30, 2016 and the last day of each fiscal quarter thereafter up to March 31, 2017; and
·  $654,687.50 on June 30, 2017 and the last day of each fiscal quarter thereafter.

The Fifth Amendment also amended our leverage ratio requirements under the Credit Agreement.  We have now agreed to a leverage ratio not to exceed 5.00:1 at March 31, 2016, stepping down to 2.25:1 at December 31, 2018.

The foregoing description of the Fifth Amendment does not summarize or include all terms relating to the Fifth Amendment, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Fifth Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

(a)   Third Party Claims . If any Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party with respect to which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (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 Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party, 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 Indemnified Party shall cooperate in good faith in such defense. In the event that the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any Third Party Claim, subject to Section 9.05(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 Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party, provided, that if in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party, (A) there are legal defenses available to an Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party that cannot be waived, the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Indemnified Party in each jurisdiction for which the Indemnified Party determines counsel is required. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend such Third Party Claim, fails to promptly notify the Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party may, subject to Section 9.05(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. Stockholder Representative and Buyer shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third Party Claim, including making available 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.

(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 Indemnified Party, except as provided in this Section 9.05(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 Indemnified Party and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party. If the Indemnified Party fails to respond or consent to such firm offer within ten (10) days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnifying Party 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 Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 9.05(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 a party (still referred to herein as an “Indemnified Party”) on account of a Loss which does not result from a Third Party Claim (a “ Direct Claim ”) shall be asserted by the Indemnified Party giving the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (30) days after the Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have thirty (30) days after its receipt of such notice to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. The Indemnified Party 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 Indemnified Party 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 thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which case the Indemnified Party shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnified Party on the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

Section 9.06   Payments .
 
(a)   Once a Loss is agreed to by the Indemnifying Party or finally adjudicated to be payable pursuant to this Article IX, the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations within fifteen (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 fifteen (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 3%. Such interest shall be calculated daily on the basis of a 365/366 day year and the actual number of days elapsed, without compounding. Any Losses payable to a Buyer Indemnitee pursuant to Article IX shall first be satisfied from the Principal Shareholders, jointly, by offset of the Loss amount (up to the Cap, if applicable) from the Second Installment otherwise due under the Promissory Note, but only if the Basket amount (to the extent applicable) has been exceeded.
 
(b)   Notwithstanding the above, in the event that Buyer in good faith determines that, after having given PeopleGuru one or more Deliverable Deficiency Notices at least 60 days prior to January 1, 2017, PeopleGuru has not completed by January 1, 2017 to Buyer’s reasonable satisfaction all deliverables as required under the Statements of Work pursuant to the Software Development Agreement, then the face amount of the Promissory Note shall be reduced as follows by reduction of the amount of the First Installment thereof:
 
(i)   by $200,000 if any one or more of such deliverables is not so timely completed;
 
(ii)   by $50,000 if the deliverable relating to the Affordable Care Act modules is not so timely completed;
 
 
52

 
 
(iii)   by $125,000 if the deliverable relating to the version 5 Mangrove Software user interface is not so timely completed;  and
 
(iv)   by $125,000 if the deliverable relating to integration of Buyer’s AsureForce software with the version 5 Mangrove Software is not so timely completed.
 
In the event that Buyer uses a deliverable in a production manner (i.e., for any reason other than development, evaluation or acceptance testing), then that individual deliverable will be considered accepted notwithstanding the lack of any formal, written acceptance of such deliverable by Buyer.  Reduction of the Promissory Note upon PeopleGuru’s failure to timely complete one or more deliverables above does not bar Buyer from seeking specific performance of the Statements of Work pursuant to the Software Development Agreement.  Further, satisfying a deliverable requirement after January 1, 2017 will not affect reduction of the Promissory Note pursuant to this Section.  In jointly working to develop the deliverables and resolving issues arising under a Deliverable Deficiency Notice, the Buyer and the Principal Shareholders (by causing PeopleGuru to so act) agree to work in accordance with the Deliverable Work Standard.  Buyer shall not be entitled to issue a Deliverable Deficiency Notice if it has not fully complied with its obligations under the Deliverable Work Standard.  Buyer agrees not to unreasonably withhold acceptance of a deliverable as required under the Statements of Work pursuant to the Software Development Agreement.
 
(c)   Further notwithstanding the above, if a Buyer Indemnitee has delivered notice of a claim for indemnification in good faith pursuant to Section 9.02 in respect of Losses and such claim has not been finally resolved or agreed to on or before any required payment date of the Second Installment under the Promissory Note, the failure of Buyer to make the required Second Installment on the Promissory Note in full when due will not constitute an event of default under the Promissory Note;  provided that Buyer tenders the balance due under the Promissory Note less any amount claimed in good faith for the indemnification.
 
Section 9.07   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 9.08   Exclusive Remedies . Subject to Section 11.12, 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 VII and this Article IX. 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 VII and this Article IX. Nothing in this Section 9.08 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 party’s fraudulent, criminal or intentional misconduct.

In the event of the death, incapacity, resignation or removal of Stockholder Representative, a new Stockholder Representative shall be appointed by the vote or written consent of the Principal Shareholders.

(c)   The Stockholder Representative shall not be liable to the Sellers for actions taken pursuant to this Agreement, except to the extent such actions shall have been determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to have constituted gross negligence or involved fraud, intentional misconduct or bad faith (it being understood that any act done or omitted pursuant to the advice of counsel, accountants and other professionals and experts retained by Stockholder Representative shall be conclusive evidence of good faith). The Principal Shareholders shall jointly indemnify and hold harmless Stockholder Representative from and against, compensate him, her or it for, reimburse him, her or it for and pay any and all losses, liabilities, claims, actions, damages and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, arising out of and in connection with his, her or its activities as Stockholder Representative under this Agreement (the “ Representative Losses ”), in each case as such Representative Loss is suffered or incurred; provided, that in the event it is finally adjudicated that a Representative Loss or any portion thereof was primarily caused by the gross negligence, fraud, intentional misconduct or bad faith of the Stockholder Representative, the Stockholder Representative shall reimburse the Principal Shareholders the amount of such indemnified Representative Loss attributable to such gross negligence, fraud, intentional misconduct or bad faith. The Representative Losses shall be satisfied from the Principal Shareholders jointly.

These two workflows combined in one unified management platform increases company bottom-line performance through greater employee empowerment and engagement. It also gives companies new data metrics to manage their two most costly assets: their people and real estate.

It launches Asure into a new and much larger market where the rise of total workforce management and agile work environment initiatives are taking center stage for company leaders. The HCM market has a market cap in the billions and growing at a 9%+ CAGR with 22% of the market actively looking for new functionality. The way people work today has changed. A large portion of HCM applications today lack the comprehensive features and actionable data leaders need to manage their changing workforce.

“Our organization has a long history and strong track record of bringing new and innovative technology to market," said Asure Chief Executive Officer Pat Goepel . "The Mangrove acquisition marks the culmination of a five-year technology strategy to bring a unified, people-centric platform to the HCM market. We believe business success today and in the future will be centered on HCM effectiveness and efficiency of where, when, and how people get work done.”

Mangrove Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Rich Cangemi said, “The new platform expands the ability for businesses to manage more interconnected tasks than traditional HCM solutions, creating greater business continuity and increasing employee attraction, engagement, and retention. These combined solutions will give organizational leaders a powerful new lens and the data necessary to see and effectively understand their business. I am very excited that our comprehensive technology will be a part of this new HCM workforce and workspace platform. The trend and desire for managers to optimize the complete lifecycle of their workforce made this the right time to come together with Asure Software.”

By combining Mangrove’s HCM solutions with Asure’s time & labor and workspace solutions, Asure completes their vision of creating the People Success Platform. The new People Success Platform is:
 
 
·

Mr. Goepel said, “The way people work today has changed and shifted the landscape of the HCM marketplace. The macro trends of globalization, mobilization, and technology developments have continued to increase the pressure for companies to manage their business differently. Providing flexible work environments for employees has changed how a company needs to capture HCM data and has redefined the workstations needed to support those mobile employees. As a result, we feel company leaders are looking for new metrics to manage the entire workforce and workplace experience. We are excited to have a solution that enables corporations to respond in a meaningful way towards those growing market challenges. Asure’s People Success Platform provides corporations a bridge from the rapidly changing employee impact on today’s workplace to future on-going corporate success.”
