Item 1.01.      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Tangerine Promotions Acquisition


On November 30, 2017, BAMKO, LLC (“BAMKO”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Superior Uniform Group, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Tangerine Promotions, Ltd. and Tangerine Promotions West, Inc. (collectively, “Tangerine Promotions”) and their respective equity and phantom equity holders. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, BAMKO acquired substantially all of Tangerine Promotions’ assets effective as of December 1, 2017.


The purchase price for the transaction consists of the following, in each case subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement: (a) approximately $7.2 million in cash, subject to a working capital adjustment, (b) the issuance of 83,248 shares of restricted common stock of the Company (representing approximately $2.0 million), and (c) the potential future payment of $5.5 million in additional consideration through 2021 (the “Contingent Consideration”). As part of the transaction, BAMKO assumed certain liabilities of Tangerine Promotions.


The 83,248 shares of restricted common stock of the Company issued to Tangerine Promotions are subject to vesting conditions specified in the Purchase Agreement. Assuming that all vesting conditions are met, the shares will vest in increments of 25% each on the first and each subsequent anniversary of the closing date, subject to acceleration in the circumstances specified in Section 2.9(b) of the Purchase Agreement.


Payment of the Contingent Consideration is subject to a number of conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, including the acquired business exceeding specified earnings targets for the years ending December 31, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, and is subject to acceleration, irrespective of the level of earnings achieved, in the circumstances specified in Section 2.8 of the Purchase Agreement.


As part of the transaction, BAMKO assumed Tangerine Promotions’ obligations under leases related to several of Tangerine Promotions’ facilities, certain liabilities with respect to Tangerine Promotions’ employees, as well as other liabilities specified in the Purchase Agreement.


The Purchase Agreement contains negotiated representations, warranties, covenants and indemnification provisions by the parties, which are believed to be customary for transactions of this type. The obligations of Tangerine Promotions and their equity and phantom equity holders arising from breaches of representations or warranties, and their indemnification obligations, in specified cases only apply with respect to liabilities in excess of certain thresholds, are generally subject to an indemnification cap of $4.0 million and are only effective for specified periods of time. The indemnification obligations of Tangerine Promotions and their equity and phantom equity holders are secured, in part, by an escrow arrangement covering a portion of the cash purchase price.


The description of the Purchase Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this report.


In connection with the transaction, the Company has entered into various ancillary agreements, including a restricted stock agreement and registration rights agreement providing for piggy-back registration rights.
