Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 20, 2012, DaVita Inc. (DaVita), Seismic Acquisition LLC, a California limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of DaVita (Merger Sub), HealthCare Partners Holdings, LLC, a California limited liability company (HCP), and Robert D. Mosher, as the Member Representative, entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement). Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, DaVita has agreed to acquire HCP through a merger of Merger Sub with and into HCP (the Merger), with HCP to be the surviving entity in the Merger (the Surviving Entity).
The total merger consideration to be paid to the holders of membership interests (HCP Common Units) and options to purchase HCP Common Units (whether or not vested) (HCP Options) is (a) $3,660,000,000 in cash, without interest, and 9,380,312 shares of DaVita common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the DaVita Common Stock). The merger consideration is subject to a customary adjustment for working capital.
Each HCP member may elect to receive, in exchange for each HCP Common Unit held by such member, the pro rata portion of the merger consideration in the form of cash or stock, or a combination thereof; provided, that the total consideration to be issued to all HCP members will be comprised of a maximum of $3,660,000,000 in cash and 9,380,312 shares of DaVita Common Stock. The Merger Agreement provides that, notwithstanding the election by an HCP member to receive all cash or all stock or a combination thereof, an HCP member may receive a combination of cash or stock that is different from what he or she may have elected, depending on the elections made by other HCP members, in order to ensure that no more than $3,660,000,000 in cash and 9,380,312 shares of DaVita Common Stock are paid in the Merger. No fractional shares of DaVita Common Stock will be issued in the Merger.
The cash portion of the merger consideration is expected to be financed through a combination of available cash, borrowings under DaVitas senior secured credit facilities, which facilities are expected to be amended to permit such additional borrowings, and additional debt financing. No assurance can be given that such debt financing will be available on terms acceptable to DaVita or at all.
Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, each HCP Option that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will accelerate and become fully vested and exercisable as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and, to the extent unexercised, will be cancelled, extinguished, and automatically converted into the right to receive, for each HCP Common Unit subject to such HCP Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, in consideration of such cancellation, as provided in and subject to the limitations set forth in the Merger Agreement, an amount of cash (without interest) equal to the excess of the pro rata merger consideration over the applicable per unit exercise price.
As additional merger consideration, a total of up to $275,000,000 in cash will be payable to the HCP members and holders of HCP Options subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement. Specifically, if the Earn-Out EBITDA (as defined in the Merger Agreement) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 is equal to or greater than $550,000,000, then DaVita will pay $137,500,000 in cash to the HCP members and holders of HCP Options, which will be allocated among the HCP members and holders of HCP Options in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. If the Earn-Out EBITDA for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 is equal to or greater than $600,000,000, then DaVita will pay $137,500,000 in cash to the HCP members and holders of HCP Options (subject to a potential reduction of up to $10,000,000), which will be allocated among the HCP members and the holders of HCP Options in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement.
The completion of the Merger is subject to various customary conditions, including, among others, (i) obtaining the approval of HCPs members, (ii) the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, (iii) subject to certain materiality exceptions, the accuracy of the representations and warranties made by DaVita and HCP, respectively, and compliance by DaVita and HCP with their respective obligations under the Merger Agreement, and (iv) declaration of the effectiveness by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) of the Registration Statement on Form S-4 (the S-4) filed by DaVita that will include a prospectus regarding the shares of DaVita Common Stock to be issued in the Merger.
The Merger Agreement contains (i) customary representations and warranties of HCP and DaVita and (ii) covenants of HCP to conduct its business in the ordinary course and to, among other things, cooperate on seeking regulatory approvals. HCP has also agreed not to (a) initiate, solicit, or encourage any proposal or any inquiry that may reasonably be expected to lead to any proposal concerning the sale of HCPs business or a sale of any material assets of HCP or any transaction the consummation of which would be inconsistent with or interfere with or prevent or delay, in any way whatsoever, the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (a Competing Transaction) or (b) hold any discussions or enter into any contracts or other arrangements with, or provide any information or respond to, any third party concerning a proposed Competing Transaction or cooperate in any way with, agree to, assist or participate in, solicit, consider, entertain, facilitate, or encourage any effort or attempt by any third party to do or seek any of the foregoing.
Under HCPs Operating Agreement, the principal terms of the Merger and the Merger Agreement must be approved by a vote of the majority of the HCP members. The Merger Agreement provides that the board of managers of HCP will make a recommendation to the HCP members to approve the principal terms of the Merger and the Merger Agreement. HealthCare Partners Medical Group (HCP Medical Group), which holds approximately 72% of the outstanding HCP Common Units, has entered into a Voting Agreement with DaVita pursuant to which it has agreed to vote in favor of the principal terms of the Merger and the Merger Agreement. Accordingly, the HCP member approval is assured.
The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for each of DaVita and HCP. The Merger Agreement also provides that DaVita will be required to pay HCP a reverse termination fee of $125,000,000 if (a) either party terminates the Merger Agreement because the closing has not occurred by November 30, 2012 and DaVitas conditions to closing are satisfied, (b) either party terminates the Merger Agreement because one or more of the conditions to closing becomes incapable of satisfaction due to DaVitas breach and DaVitas conditions to closing are satisfied other than those conditions not satisfied due to DaVitas breach, (c) HCP terminates the Merger Agreement because one or more of the conditions to closing cannot be satisfied due to DaVitas breach, or (d) either party terminates the Merger Agreement because the proceeds of the financing are not received and DaVitas conditions to closing have been satisfied. Although DaVita has the right to terminate the Merger Agreement and pay the reverse termination fee under certain circumstances where the proceeds of the financing are not received, there is no separate financing condition contained in the Merger Agreement.
The Merger Agreement provides that at the closing, Dr. Robert Margolis, who is the Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer of HCP, will be appointed to the DaVita Board of Directors (the DaVita Board) and, for a minimum of four annual meetings of stockholders of DaVita thereafter, Dr. Margolis prospective re-nomination for election to the DaVita Board shall be assessed in the same manner as is each other DaVita incumbent directors re-nomination when the Nominating and Governance Committee of the DaVita Board determines each year which directors it shall select as nominees or recommend to the DaVita Board for nomination for election.
The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference. The Merger Agreement has been included to provide stockholders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other information about DaVita or HCP or their respective subsidiaries and affiliates. The Merger Agreement contains representations and warranties by each of DaVita and HCP. These representations and warranties were made solely for the benefit of the other parties to the Merger Agreement and (a) may have been used for purposes of allocating risk between the respective parties rather than establishing matters as facts, (b) may have been qualified in the Merger Agreement by confidential disclosure schedules that were delivered to the other party in connection with the signing of the Merger Agreement, which disclosure schedules may contain information that modifies, qualifies, and creates exceptions to the representations, warranties, and covenants set forth in the Merger Agreement, (c) may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality applicable to the parties that differs from what a stockholder may view as material and (d) may have been made only as of the date of the Merger Agreement or as of another date or dates as may be specified in the Merger Agreement. Accordingly, stockholders should not rely upon representations and warranties or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of DaVita or HCP or their respective subsidiaries and affiliates.

Under the terms of the Escrow Agreement, $559,375,000 of the merger consideration, comprised of DaVita Common Stock and cash, will be deposited into an escrow account to serve as security for the indemnification obligations of the HCP members pursuant to the Merger Agreement and any downward adjustment to the merger consideration as a result of the working capital adjustment provided for in the Merger Agreement. Beginning on the second anniversary of the Closing, certain amounts in escrow, to the extent not previously released or reserved for certain indemnity claims, will be released on various dates, with the final release to occur on October 15, 2017.
