Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 20, 2011, Westell Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Westell Technologies” or the “Company”), Arkadin S.A.S., an entity organized under French law (“Parent”), and Arkadin Inc., a Delaware corporation and subsidiary of Parent ( and together with Parent, “Buyer”), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which Westell Technologies has agreed to sell its wholly-owned subsidiary, Conference Plus, Inc.
