Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Item 2.01Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

On July 30, 2014, WPCS International Incorporated (the “Company”) entered into a waiver agreement (the “Waiver”) with holders (“Holders”) of a majority of the outstanding senior secured convertible notes (“Notes”) and warrants that were sold pursuant to a securities purchase agreement dated December 4, 2012. The Notes are secured by a first priority lien on the assets of the Company and subsidiaries pursuant to a security and pledge agreement (the “Security Agreement”) dated December 4, 2012 by the Company and subsidiaries in favor of Worldwide Stock Transfer LLC (the “Collateral Agent”), in its capacity as collateral agent for the Holders. As a result of the Waiver, the Collateral Agent released the stock of The Pride Group (QLD) Pty Ltd. (“Pride”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, from Collateral pursuant to the Security Agreement.

 

On July 31, 2014 (the “Closing Date”), the Company completed the sale of Pride to Turquino Equity LLC, a limited liability company (“Turquino”), whose managing member is Andrew Hidalgo (“Hidalgo”), former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. The closing of the sale was pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated September 19, 2013, by and between WPCS Australia Pty Ltd (“WPCS Australia”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and Turquino (the “Agreement”).

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, WPCS Australia agreed to sell 100% of the shares of Pride to Turquino for $1,400,000 (“Purchase Price”), which Purchase Price was subject to adjustment based on the net tangible asset value (“NTAV”) of Pride on the Closing Date. In the event that the NTAV was less than AUD$1.4 million on the Closing Date, WPCS Australia was required to pay Turquino an amount equal to the shortfall between the NTAV as of the Closing Date and AUD$1.4 million. At the closing, the Purchase Price was to be settled by applying the net after tax severance balance due Hidalgo under his separation agreement, dated July 24, 2013 by and between Hidalgo and the Company (the “Severance Agreement”), as payment towards the Purchase Price. As of July 31, 2014, the total severance amount due to Hidalgo pursuant to the Severance Agreement was $1,137,500.

 

Pursuant to a letter agreement, dated July 31, 2014, by and between WPCS Australia and Turquino (the “Letter Agreement”), the parties agreed that the NTAV of Pride on the Closing Date was AUD $1,029,110 (USD $970,010). By the Letter Agreement, Hidalgo agreed to reduce the total severance owed to him under the Severance Agreement by $167,490, which reduced the total severance due Hidalgo to $970,010, the NTAV of Pride on the Closing Date. As a result, the Company was not required to make any further payment to Hidalgo pursuant to the Severance Agreement.

 

The foregoing information is a summary of the Waiver, Agreement and Letter Agreement described above, is not complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such documents, copies of which are attached as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K.  Readers should review such documents for a complete understanding of the terms and conditions associated with this transaction.
