Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 8, 2022, Azenta, Inc. (“Azenta”), and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Azenta Luxembourg S.á r.l. (“Azenta Luxembourg”), entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with B Medical Systems Holding S.A. (the “Seller”), pursuant to which Azenta Luxembourg has agreed to acquire and the Seller has agreed to sell, all of the issued and outstanding capital shares of B Medical Systems S.á r.l. (“B Medical”). B Medical is a leading global provider of temperature-controlled storage and transportation solutions.

The total purchase price to be paid by Azenta Luxembourg is approximately €410,000,000, plus up to an additional €50,000,000 in contingent consideration that may be earned based upon achievement of certain financial metrics by B Medical and its subsidiaries following the closing. The consummation of the transaction contemplated by the Agreement is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to occur in October 2022.

The Agreement also includes customary representations, warranties, and covenants of the parties. The representations and warranties made by each party were made solely for the benefit of the other party and (i) were not intended to be treated as categorical statements of fact, but rather as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the Agreement if those statements prove to be inaccurate; (ii) may have been qualified in the Agreement by disclosures that were made to the other party in disclosure schedules to the Agreement; (iii) may apply contract standards of “materiality” that are different from “materiality” under the applicable securities laws; and (iv) were made only as of the date of the Agreement or such other date or dates as may be specified in the Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the Agreement. A copy of the Agreement is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On August 8, 2022, Azenta issued a press release announcing entry into the Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
