Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On April 30, 2021, Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a $1.0 billion accelerated share repurchase agreement (the “ASR Agreement”) with Barclays Bank PLC (the “Bank”). The Company will acquire shares under the ASR Agreement as part of its existing $1.0 billion share repurchase program authorization. As of April 30, 2021, before giving effect to the ASR Agreement, $1.0 billion remained available for share repurchases pursuant to this authorization.
Pursuant to the terms of the ASR Agreement, on May 3, 2021, the Company will pay the Bank $1.0 billion in cash and will receive approximately 2.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock. At final settlement, the Bank may be required to deliver additional shares to the Company, or, under certain circumstances, the Company may be required to deliver shares of its common stock or may elect to make a cash payment to the Bank, based generally on the average of the daily volume-weighted average prices of the Company’s common stock during the term of the ASR Agreement, less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms of the ASR Agreement. The ASR Agreement contains the principal terms and provisions governing the accelerated share repurchase customary for agreements of this type, including provisions for adjustments to the transaction terms, the circumstances generally under which the ASR Agreement may be accelerated, extended or terminated early by the Bank and various acknowledgments, representations and warranties made by the parties to one another. Final settlement of the ASR Agreement is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2021, although the settlement may be accelerated at the Bank’s option.
The foregoing description of the ASR Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the ASR Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
