Section 2.1 The Separation. Prior to the Effective Time and pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Separation Agreement, TWDC and Spinco shall effect the Separation.
Section 2.2 The Merger.
(a) Immediately prior to the Effective Time, the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Merger Sub shall consist of only shares of the common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Merger Sub (Merger Sub Common Stock), all of which shall be owned directly by Company.
(b) Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Spinco (the Merger) at the Effective Time in accordance with the DGCL and upon the terms set forth in this Agreement. Following the Merger, the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub will cease, and Spinco will continue as the surviving corporation (Spinco as the surviving corporation following the Merger is sometimes referred to herein as the Surviving Corporation) and will succeed to and assume all the rights, powers, privileges and franchises, and be subject to all of the obligations of Merger Sub in accordance with the DGCL and upon the terms set forth in this Agreement. As a result of the Merger, the Surviving Corporation will be a wholly-owned Subsidiary of Company.
Section 2.3 Closing. The closing of the Merger will take place at 10:00 a.m., New York time, on a date to be specified by the Parties, which will be no later than the second Business Day after the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Article VII hereof (the Closing Date) at the offices of Dewey Ballantine LLP, 1301 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10019, unless another date or place is agreed to in writing by the Parties. If as of immediately prior to the Effective Time the number of Spinco Shares calculated pursuant to the provisos to the definitions of Company Shares Outstanding and Company Diluted Shares Outstanding is greater than the number of Spinco Shares as originally calculated as of the Spinco Funding Date, TWDC, may at its option, cause the Closing Date to be delayed until such time as all calculations of amounts pursuant to defined terms in this Agreement and the Separation Agreement incorporating the term Spinco Shares are recalculated utilizing such recalculated number of Spinco Shares and the parties shall take all necessary actions to effectuate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Separation Agreement (including, but not limited to, the Spinco Debt, the Distribution and Per-Share Special Dividend) taking into account such recalculated amounts.
Section 2.4 Effective Time. On the Closing Date, the Parties will execute and file in the office of the Secretary of State of Delaware a certificate of merger (the Certificate of Merger) executed in accordance with the DGCL. The Merger will become effective at the time of filing of the Certificate of Merger with the Secretary of State of Delaware in accordance with the DGCL, or at such later time as is agreed upon by the Parties and set forth in the Certificate of Merger (such time as the Merger becomes effective is referred to herein as the Effective Time).
Section 2.5 Effects of the Merger.
(a) The Merger will have the effects set forth in this Agreement, the Certificate of Merger and the DGCL.
(b) Immediately following the Effective Time, Spincos name shall be Alphabet Acquisition Corp. and its headquarters shall be located at 7201 W. Lake Mead Blvd, Suite 400, Las Vegas, Nevada 89128.
Section 2.6 Certificates of Incorporation and Bylaws.
(a) Certificates of Incorporation. At the Effective Time, the certificate of incorporation of Surviving Corporation as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be amended so as to contain only the provisions contained in the certificate of incorporation of Merger Sub until thereafter amended in accordance with the terms thereof and applicable Law.
(b) Bylaws. At the Effective Time, the bylaws of Merger Sub as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall become the bylaws of the Surviving Corporation until thereafter amended in accordance with the terms thereof and applicable Law.
Section 2.7 Additional Actions. If TWDC or Company determines that it is necessary or advisable to restructure the Transaction to yield the Intended Tax Consequences, then the Parties will collaborate reasonably and in good faith in order to determine an alternative structure for the Transactions, and the Parties agree to use their reasonable best efforts to modify the relevant provisions of this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements accordingly. In all events, the chosen structure will preserve to the greatest extent possible the economics of the Transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreements (disregarding any cost associated with the Company Convertible Notes). In furtherance of the foregoing, each of the Parties shall take all actions reasonably necessary to modify the IRS Rulings and Opinions of Counsel to reflect the transactions as so modified and to effectuate the change in transaction structure contemplated by this Section 2.7, and each such Party shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause the transactions contemplated hereby, as so modified, to be consummated as soon as practicable thereafter.
