Item 1.01.              Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On November 6, 2007, priceline.com Incorporated (the “Company”) and a newly-formed, indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Priceline Subsidiary” and together with the Company, the “Purchasers”), entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of Agoda Company, Ltd. (“Agoda”) and membership interest holders (the “Members,” and together with the Shareholders, the “Sellers”) of AGIP LLC (“AGIP,” and together with Agoda, the “Agoda Companies”).  Pursuant to the Agreement, Priceline Subsidiary acquired all of the outstanding shares and convertible debt of Agoda and the Company acquired all of the outstanding membership interests of AGIP (the “Acquisition”).  The purchase price for the Acquisition consists of (i) an initial purchase price payable by the Purchasers in cash of $15,074,693, (a) subject to a post-closing net working capital adjustment and (b) a portion of which is being held in escrow to secure certain indemnification and other obligations of the Sellers under the Agreement, and (ii) up to an additional $141,600,000 in cash (the “Earnout Amount”), which is payable by Priceline Subsidiary to the Sellers participating in the earn out (the “Earnout Participants”) if the Agoda Companies achieve the maximum “gross bookings” and earnings targets from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2010.  The Earnout Amount, if any, or any portion thereof, is payable by Priceline Subsidiary on April 2, 2011, or a later date following the expiration of a period in which the Earnout Participants may give notice to Priceline Subsidiary of a disagreement with respect to the Earnout Amount or if there is a dispute between the Earnout Participants and Priceline Subsidiary as to the Earnout Amount.  Under certain circumstances, if there are disruptions in the Asian travel market during 2010, then the date in which the Earnout Amount, if any, or any portion thereof, is payable to the Earnout Participants is extended to a date not earlier than April 2, 2012.  There can be no assurance that the Agoda Companies will achieve the gross bookings and earnings targets, and depending on whether and the extent to which such targets are achieved by the Agoda Companies, Priceline Subsidiary may be obligated to pay all, a portion or none of the Earnout Amount to the Earnout Participants.  The Acquisition was completed on November 6, 2007.

 

The foregoing description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions of the Agreement, which the Company will file as an exhibit with its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007.
