Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 31, 2019, Workhorse Group Inc. (the “Company”) and ST Engineering Hackney, Inc. (“Seller”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to purchase certain assets of Seller (the “Acquired Assets”) and assume certain liabilities of Seller. The closing under the Purchase Agreement (the “Closing”) shall occur within five business days after the satisfaction of certain conditions.

The Purchase Agreement provides that the Company will be required to deliver shares of its common stock to the Seller if it does not make the Second Payment (as defined below) on a timely basis. Accordingly, upon execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Company deposited $1.0 million in cash and shares of its common stock having an aggregate value of $6.6 million based on the closing price as of the day immediately preceding the date of the Purchase Agreement (the “Escrow Shares”) into an escrow account (the “Escrow Account”) with U.S. Bank National Association to be held pursuant to the terms of an escrow agreement by and among U.S. Bank National Association, the Company and Seller. The number of Escrow Shares shall be subject to adjustment if the aggregate value of the Escrow Shares is less than $5.28 million or greater than $7.92 million on certain dates.

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to pay $7.0 million for the purchase of the Acquired Assets, $1.0 million of which shall be payable from the Escrow Account upon satisfaction of certain conditions, and the remaining $6.0 million of which (the “Second Payment”) shall be payable in cash within 45 days if certain additional conditions are attained. The Purchase Agreement provides that the Company shall make additional payments to Seller in the event the Second Payment is not made within 45 days of when such payment is due. In the event payment of the Second Payment is not made to Seller within 105 days after such payment is due, Seller may, at its option, require that the Escrow Agent release to Seller Escrow Shares with a value (based on the then-current market price of the shares) equal to $6,000,000 in satisfaction of the Second Payment.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants from Seller.

The Company and Seller will also provide each other customary indemnities including, among other things, losses resulting from breaches or misrepresentations under the Purchase Agreement and failure to perform covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement. The Company’s indemnification rights are subject to a $110,000 deductible basket and $1.05 million cap for claims arising out of Seller’s breaches of representations and warranties.

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

The information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the issuance of the Escrow Shares is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. The Escrow Shares that may be delivered to the Seller pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and the Escrow Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby have not been registered under the Securities Act, and, if any such Escrow Shares are delivered or transactions are consummated, such delivery or consummation will be made in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements thereof provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act or Regulation D thereunder as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering of securities.
