Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 13, 2021, Rush Enterprises, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Form 8-K to disclose that certain subsidiaries of the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) to acquire substantially all of the assets and assume certain liabilities (the “Transaction”) of Summit Truck Group, LLC, a Texas limited liability company, and certain of its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, the “Seller”), which assets are currently used in the conduct of commercial vehicle sales, leasing, rental, parts and service business operated by Seller at twenty-four dealership facilities located in Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas (the “Business”).
After discussions with certain of the commercial vehicle manufacturers that the Seller represents and the Seller, it has been determined that the Company will not ultimately acquire the assets of the Business that are located in Oklahoma and Mississippi, which include four full-service dealerships and one service-only facility. Subject to regulatory approval and the satisfaction of the closing conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, the Company continues to expect that the Transaction will close during the fourth quarter of 2021 with respect to the nineteen other dealership facilities located in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas.
Excluding the assets located at the Oklahoma and Mississippi dealership facilities, the Company estimates that the purchase price for the Business, including goodwill, but excluding any real property, will be approximately $223.0 million (the “Purchase Price”). In connection with the Transaction and excluding the Oklahoma and Mississippi dealership facilities, the Company anticipates purchasing certain real property of the Seller for approximately $60.0 million pursuant to one or more real property purchase agreements. At the closing, the Company anticipates that it will finance approximately $114.0 million of the Purchase Price.
At this time, the Company does not anticipate entering into an amendment of the Purchase Agreement, but it does anticipate assigning all of its rights and obligations with respect to the Seller’s assets located at the Oklahoma and Mississippi dealerships to other entities that are not affiliated with the Company.
Consummation of the Transaction continues to remain subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain closing conditions including, among other things, (i) the receipt of approval of the Transaction by certain manufacturers the Seller currently represents and Idealease, Inc. and (ii) the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. In addition, the foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which was previously filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on September 13, 2021, and is incorporated herein by reference.
