On October 13, 2021, BFT Franchise Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Buyer”), a subsidiary of Xponential Fitness, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“APA”) with GRPX Live Pty Ltd., an Australian corporation, as trustee for GRPX Live Unit Trust (“GRPX Live”), Body Fit Training Company Pty Ltd, an Australian corporation, as trustee for the Body Fit Training Unit (“Body Fit Training”), Body Fit Training USA, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“BFT USA”, and together with GRPX Live and Body Fit Training, the “Sellers”), all of the shareholders and/or equity holders of each of Sellers that are party thereto (the “Shareholders”, and together with the Sellers and representative of the Sellers, the “Seller Parties”). Pursuant to the APA, Buyer (i) acquired from the Sellers certain assets relating to the concept and brand known as Body Fit Training™, BFT™ and certain derivatives thereof, including ownership of all intellectual property rights and the rights to license and franchise the concept and brand globally, including franchise systems (the “Franchise System”) in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore and the United States (the “Purchased Assets”), and (ii) assumed certain liabilities associated with the Purchased Assets, but excluding certain liabilities such as indebtedness and tax liabilities of the Sellers (the “BFT Acquisition”).
As consideration to acquire the Purchased Assets, the Company paid the Sellers in cash a purchase price of AUD $60,000,000 or U.S.$44,322,000 based on the currency exchange rate as of October 13, 2021. In addition, conditioned upon the execution and continued effectiveness of a Master Franchise Agreement (the “MFA”) between an affiliate of Buyer and the Company and Body Fit Training as described more fully in Item 8.01 below, Buyer agreed to pay certain sale bonus payments (the “Sale Bonus Payments”) to the Sellers consisting of quarterly cash payments based on the sales of the Franchise System and equipment packages in the U.S. and Canada, as well as a percentage of royalties collected by Buyer, provided that (i) aggregate minimum Sale Bonus Payments of AUD $5,000,000, or U.S.$3,693,500, shall be paid for the two year period ended December 31, 2023 and (ii) in no event shall the aggregate amount of the Sale Bonus Payments exceed AUD $14,000,000, or U.S.$10,341,800. The BFT Acquisition was closed on October 13, 2021.
The APA contains customary representations, warranties, and covenants by Buyer and the Seller Parties and customary closing conditions. Buyer and the Company, on the one hand, and the Seller Parties, on the other hand, also agreed to indemnify, subject to certain baskets and thresholds, the other party for losses incurred as a result of specified events, including breaches of representations, warranties and covenants by Buyer or the Seller Parties, as the case may be. In addition, Buyer and the Company agreed to indemnify any Seller (and any other Seller entity) named as a party to certain pending lawsuits specified in the APA (the “Seller Action Indemnitees”) for losses resulting from such lawsuits, provided that Buyer’s indemnification obligations to the Seller Action Indemnitees are limited to the claims made in the current filings as of the date of the APA.
The foregoing is only a summary of the material terms of the APA and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder, and such summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the APA, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
