On September 18, 2009, Midway Games Inc. (the Registrant) and two of its United States subsidiaries, Midway Home Entertainment Inc. (MHE) and Midway Studios Los-Angeles Inc. (MSLA, together with the Registrant and MHE, the Sellers) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the Asset Purchase Agreement) with SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (SouthPeak).
Under the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, SouthPeak agreed to purchase certain assets created under a license agreement between TNA Entertainment, LLC and MHE, with certain exclusions (the Purchased Assets). The purchase price for the assets is One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) plus the aggregate of any cure amounts and other assumed liabilities under assumed contracts.
The consummation of the transaction contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement was subject to (i) entry of an order of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the Court) approving the proposed transaction and (ii) other customary closing conditions.
On October 2, 2009, pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Sellers completed the sale of the Purchased Assets to SouthPeak in a sale conducted under the provisions of Section 363 of the United States Bankruptcy Code and approved by the Court on October 1, 2009 (the SouthPeak Section 363 Sale).
The Registrant is unable to determine whether or not a material impairment to its assets will be required as a result of the SouthPeak Section 363 Sale. In the event the Registrant is required to take a material charge for impairment under generally accepted accounting principles as a result of the SouthPeak Section 363 Sale, the Registrant will file an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K within four days of determining such charge.
The above description of the Asset Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
