On April 16, 2018, DST Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “ Company ” or “ DST ”), completed its previously announced merger with SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“ SS&C ”), pursuant to the terms of that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of January 11, 2018 (the “ Merger Agreement ”), by and among the Company, SS&C and Diamond Merger Sub, Inc. a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of SS&C (“ Merger Sub ”) providing for, among other things, the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company (the “Merger”). Upon consummation of the Merger, the Company became a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of SS&C, surviving as the surviving company (the “ Surviving Corporation ”).

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time (as defined in the Merger Agreement), each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (the “ Common Stock ”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (i) shares to be canceled or converted into shares of the Surviving Corporation, (ii) Company Options, shares of Company RSUs and Company Performance Stock Units, in each case, as defined in the Merger Agreement, and (iii) any shares of Common Stock held by any holder who has not voted in favor of the Merger and who is entitled to demand and properly demands appraisal of such Common Stock under Delaware law and has neither failed to perfect, nor effectively withdrawn or lost rights to appraisal under Delaware law) were automatically cancelled and converted into the right to receive $84.00 per share in cash (“ Merger Consideration ”), without interest.

 

At the Effective Time, (i) each outstanding vested DST equity award was cancelled and converted into the right to receive a cash payment equal to the product of (a) (1) for each DST equity award of options to purchase shares of Common Stock (“ Option ”), the excess, if any, of the Merger Consideration over the exercise price per share of Common Stock represented by such Option and (2) for each other DST equity award, the Merger Consideration, multiplied by (b) the number of shares of Common Stock subject to such DST equity award, (ii) each outstanding unvested Option and outstanding unvested award of restricted stock units was converted into an equivalent equity award with respect to common stock of SS&C (the “ SS&C Stock ”), subject to the same terms and conditions as generally applicable to the converted DST equity award and (iii) each outstanding unvested award of performance stock units was, according to its terms, converted into an award of time-vesting restricted stock units with respect to SS&C Stock (based on actual performance for the applicable performance period), subject to the same terms and conditions as generally applicable to the converted DST equity award.

In addition, the Company intends to file with the SEC a certification and notice of termination on Form 15 with respect to the Common Stock, requesting that the Common Stock be deregistered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “ Exchange Act ”), and that the reporting obligations of the Company with respect to the Common Stock under the Exchange Act be suspended.

On April 16, 2018, SS&C issued a press release announcing the completion of the Merger. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

 

The description of the Merger Agreement contained herein does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on January 11, 2018 and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.. This summary is not intended to modify or supplement any factual disclosures about the Company or SS&C and should not be relied upon as disclosure about the Company or SS&C without consideration of any periodic and current reports and statements that the Company and SS&C may file with the SEC. The terms of the Merger Agreement govern the contractual rights and relationships, and allocate risks, among the parties in relation to the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Merger Agreement were made only for purposes of the Merger Agreement and as of specific dates; were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Merger Agreement; may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures; may not have been intended to be statements of fact, but rather, as a method of allocating contractual risk and governing the contractual rights and relationships between the parties to the Merger Agreement; and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of SS&C, DST or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in SS&C’s or DST’s public disclosures.
