WHEREAS, in connection with the Offering and the Reorganization, the Parties desire to, among other things, (i) establish the economic terms of the Reorganization, and (ii) enter into certain agreements to effectuate the foregoing; and

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the Parties hereby agree as follows, and further agree that the actions set forth in Article I shall be deemed to have been taken and become effective in the order set forth therein.

 

ARTICLE I
RESTRUCTURING TRANSACTIONS

 

Section 1.1.                                Underwriting Agreement.  Effective prior to the Merger Effective Time, the Company, the Selling Stockholders and the Underwriters shall enter into the Underwriting Agreement, pursuant to which the Company shall issue and sell, and the Selling Stockholders shall sell, shares of Common Stock to the Underwriters at a price per share equal to the IPO Price, less the underwriting discount applied to any shares of Common Stock to be sold by the Company or such Selling Stockholders to the public in the Offering.

 

Section 1.2.                                Jagged Peak LLC. Effective following the transactions described in Section 1.1 and immediately prior to the Merger Effective Time, the Limited Liability Company Agreement of Jagged Peak LLC dated as of April 3, 2013, as amended (the “LLC Agreement”), shall be deemed amended and restated to effect a recapitalization of the Capital Interests (as defined in the LLC Agreement) and the Management Incentive Units (as defined in the LLC Agreement) into a single class of units representing membership interests in Jagged Peak LLC

 



 

(the “Units”).  Each member of Jagged Peak LLC (collectively, the “Jagged Peak Members” and each a “Jagged Peak Member”) shall receive such number of Units as such Jagged Peak Member would have received pursuant to Section 4.2 of the LLC Agreement if Jagged Peak LLC were to make distributions of Units to the Jagged Peak Members in an aggregate amount equal to the Pre-IPO Value valuing such Units at the IPO Price (it being understood that such distribution shall, with respect to each applicable Management Member, be offset by the amount of the 2016 MIU Distribution (as defined in the LLC Agreement) received by such Management Member as set forth in Section 4.2 of the LLC Agreement). The aggregate number of Units to be distributed to the members of Jagged Peak LLC shall be determined by the board of directors of Jagged Peak LLC.

 

Section 1.3.                                Management Holdco.  Effective immediately following the transactions described in Section 1.2 and prior to the Merger Effective Time, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the LLC Agreement or any Award Letter entered into between Jagged Peak LLC and a Management Member, (i) Q-Jagged Peak and the Management Members shall adopt the Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of Management Holdco, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, as the limited liability company agreement of Management Holdco (the “Management Holdco LLC Agreement”) and (ii) each Management Member hereby conveys, transfers, assigns and delivers to Management Holdco all of its right, title and interest in and to (A) such Management Member’s pro rata portion (calculated based on such Management Member’s relative ownership of Management Incentive Units prior to the recapitalization described in Section 1.2) of a number of Units equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) $10,000,000 by (y) the IPO Price (it being understood that such Units represent a portion of the Units issued in respect of the unallocated Management Incentive Units) and (B) (x) with respect to each Group I Member, 35% of (I) the Units received by such Management Member pursuant to Section 1.2 in respect of such Management Member’s Management Incentive Units less (II) the number of Units contributed by such Management Member to Management Holdco pursuant to clause (A) of this sentence and (y) with respect to each Group II Member, 25% of (I) the Units received by such Management Member pursuant to Section 1.2 in respect of such Management Member’s Management Incentive Units less (II) the number of Units contributed by such Management Member to Management Holdco pursuant to clause (A) of this sentence.  For the avoidance of doubt, the execution by each Management Member of this Agreement shall be effective to admit such Management Member as a member of Management Holdco and each Management Member hereby agrees to be bound by, and subject to, all of the terms and conditions of the Management Holdco LLC Agreement.

2



 

number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Units held by such holder immediately prior to the Merger.

 

Section 1.5.                                Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Company.  Effective immediately following the Merger Effective Time, the Company shall (i) file with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware an Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C and (ii) enter into an Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company (the “Bylaws”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D.

 

Section 1.6.                                Registration Rights Agreement. Immediately following the Merger Effective Time, Q-Jagged Peak and the Group I Members shall enter into the Registration Rights Agreement, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E.
