NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation

Management prepared these unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for Zebra Technologies Corporation and subsidiaries (“Zebra”) according to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial information. These financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements. Therefore, these consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in Zebra’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2013 included in this Form 10-Q is taken from the audited consolidated balance sheet in our Form 10-K. These interim financial statements include all adjustments (of a normal, recurring nature) necessary to present fairly Zebra’s consolidated financial position as of June 28, 2014, the consolidated statement of earnings and consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013, and the consolidated statement of cash flows for the six months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013. These results, however, are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.

On April 14, 2014, Zebra entered into a definitive agreement under which Zebra will acquire a portion of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions, Inc. for $3.45 billion in an all-cash transaction. Zebra intends to fund the acquisition with a combination of approximately $200 million of available cash on hand and the issuance of $3.25 billion in new debt. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions including regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.

Note 2 – Fair Value Measurements

Financial assets and liabilities are to be measured using inputs from three levels of the fair value hierarchy. Fair value is based on the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Zebra uses a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes observable and unobservable inputs used to measure fair value into three broad levels:

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.

Level 2: Observable prices that are based on inputs not quoted on active markets, but corroborated by market data.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.

In determining fair value, we utilize valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible as well as consider counterparty credit risk in the assessment of fair value. Included in our investment portfolio at June 28, 2014, is an auction rate security which is classified as available for sale and is reflected at fair value. Due to events in credit markets, however, the auction event for the instrument held by Zebra is failed. Therefore, the fair value of this security is estimated utilizing broker quotations, discounted cash flow analysis and other types of valuation adjustment methodologies at June 28, 2014. These analyses consider, among other items, the collateral underlying the security instruments, the creditworthiness of the counterparty, the timing of expected future cash flows, estimates of the next time the security is expected to have a successful auction, and Zebra’s intent and ability to hold such securities until credit markets improve. The security was also compared, when possible, to other securities with similar characteristics.

The decline in the market value of our auction rate security discussed above is considered temporary and has been recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income loss on Zebra’s balance sheet. Since Zebra has the intent and ability to hold this auction rate security until it is sold at auction, redeemed at carrying value or reaches maturity, we have classified it as a long-term investment on the balance sheet.

1) Includes investments in notes issued by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, the Federal National Mortgage Association, the Federal Farm Credit Banks and the Federal Home Loan Bank.

 

2) The fair value of forward contracts are calculated as follows:

 

  a. Fair value of a collar or put option contract associated with forecasted sales hedges are calculated using bid and ask rates for similar contracts.

 

  b. Fair value of regular forward contracts associated with forecasted sales hedges are calculated using the period-end exchange rate adjusted for current forward points.

 

  c. Fair value of balance sheet hedges are calculated at the period end exchange rate adjusted for current forward points unless the hedge has been traded but not settled at period end. If this is the case, the fair value is calculated at the rate at which the hedge is being settled.

 

3) The fair value of forward interest rate swap contracts are based upon a valuation model that uses relevant observable market inputs at quoted intervals, such as forward yield curves, and is adjusted for Zebra’s own credit risk and the interest rate swap terms.

Note 3 – Investments and Marketable Securities

Investments in marketable debt securities are classified based on intent and ability to sell the investment securities. We intend to use Zebra’s available-for-sale securities to fund future acquisitions and other operating needs and therefore may be sold prior to maturity. Investments in marketable debt securities for which Zebra intends to sell within the next year are classified as current and those that we intend to hold in excess of one-year are classified as non-current.

Changes in the market value of available-for-sale securities are reflected in the “Accumulated other comprehensive income” caption of stockholders’ equity in the balance sheet, until we dispose of the securities. Once these securities are disposed of, either by sale or maturity, the accumulated changes in market value are transferred to investment income. On the statement of cash flows, changes in the balances of available-for-sale securities are shown as purchases, sales and maturities of investments and marketable securities under investing activities.

Changes in market value of trading securities would be recorded in investment income as they occur, and the related statement of cash flows would include changes in the balances of trading securities as operating cash flows.

Included in Zebra’s cash and investments and marketable securities are amounts held by foreign subsidiaries which are generally invested in U.S. dollar-denominated holdings. Zebra had foreign cash and investments of $301,330,000 as of June 28, 2014, and $251,658,000 as of December 31, 2013. Amounts held by foreign subsidiaries are generally subject to U.S. income taxation upon repatriation. Zebra does not currently see a need to repatriate these funds.

Zebra had $155,800,000 of goodwill recorded as of June 28, 2014 and December 31, 2013.

In the fourth quarter 2013, Zebra acquired all of the outstanding membership interests in Hart Systems, LLC (a New York limited liability company) with $60,858,000 of the purchase price allocated to goodwill. This acquisition is considered a separate reporting unit for purposes of Zebra’s goodwill impairment test.

We test goodwill for impairment on an annual basis or more frequently if we believe indicators of impairment exist. We performed our assessment in accordance with Accounting Standards update (ASU) 2011-08, which allows for the option to make a qualitative evaluation about the likelihood of goodwill impairment to determine whether the fair value needs to be reassessed. We performed our qualitative assessment, which excluded Hart Systems, LLC, in June 2014 and determined that our goodwill was not impaired as of the end of May 2014. Impairment testing for Hart Systems, LLC will occur in Q4 of this year.

Note 9 – Derivative Instruments

Portions of our operations are subject to fluctuations in currency values. We manage these risks using derivative financial instruments. We conduct business on a multinational basis in a wide variety of foreign currencies. Our exposure to market risk for changes in foreign currency exchange rates arises from international financing activities between subsidiaries, foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities and transactions arising from international trade. Our objective is to preserve the economic value of non-functional currency denominated cash flows. We attempt to hedge transaction exposures with natural offsets to the fullest extent possible and, once these opportunities have been exhausted, through foreign exchange forward and option contracts with third parties.

In addition, we have exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates resulting from the announced acquisition of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions, Inc. During the three months ended June 28, 2014, we entered into a commitment letter for a new variable rate credit facility to fund the announced acquisition and we also entered into two tranches of floating-to-fixed forward interest rate swaps to economically hedge the interest rate risk.

The fair value of the forward interest rate swap contracts are estimated using market quoted forward interest rates for the London Interbank Offered Rate “LIBOR” at the balance sheet date and the application of such rates subject to the interest rate swap terms. In accordance with ASC 815 we recognize derivative instruments and hedging activities as either assets or liabilities on the balance sheet and measure them at fair value. Gains and losses resulting from changes in fair value are accounted for depending on the use of the derivative and whether it is designated and qualifies for hedge accounting.

Credit and market risk

Financial instruments, including derivatives, expose us to counter party credit risk for nonperformance and to market risk related to interest and currency exchange rates. We manage our exposure to counterparty credit risk through specific minimum credit standards, diversification of counterparties, and procedures to monitor concentrations of credit risk. Our counterparties in derivative transactions are commercial banks with significant experience using derivative instruments. We monitor the impact of market risk on the fair value and cash flows of our derivative and other financial instruments considering reasonably possible changes in interest rates and currency exchange rates and restrict the use of derivative financial instruments to hedging activities. We continually monitor the creditworthiness of our customers to which we grant credit terms in the normal course of business. The terms and conditions of our credit sales are designed to mitigate or eliminate concentrations of credit risk with any single customer.

Fair Value of Derivative Instruments

Zebra has determined that derivative instruments for hedges that have traded but have not settled are considered Level 1 in the fair value hierarchy, and hedges that have not traded are considered Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy. Derivative instruments are used to manage risk and are not used for trading or other speculative purposes, nor do we use leveraged derivative financial instruments. Our foreign currency exchange and forward interest-rate swap contracts are valued using broker quotations or market transactions, in either the listed or over-the-counter markets.

Hedging of Net Assets

We use forward contracts to manage exposure related to our pound and euro denominated net assets. Forward contracts typically mature within three months after execution of the contracts. We record gains and losses on these contracts and options in income each quarter along with the transaction gains and losses related to our net asset positions, which would ordinarily offset each other.

Summary financial information related to these activities included in our consolidated statement of earnings as other income (expense) is as follows (in thousands):

Hedging of Anticipated Sales

We manage the exchange rate risk of anticipated euro-denominated sales using purchased options, forward contracts, and participating forwards. We designate these contracts as cash flow hedges which mature within twelve months after the execution of the contracts. Gains and losses on these contracts are deferred in other comprehensive income until the contracts are settled and the hedged sales are realized. The deferred gains or losses will then be reported as an increase or decrease to sales.

Forward Interest Rate Swaps

The forward interest rate swap contracts economically hedge the interest rate risk associated with the variable rate commitment entered into for the announced acquisition of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions, Inc.

These forward interest rate swaps did not qualify for hedge accounting as of June 28, 2014, and as such, were recognized at their fair value through the Statement of earnings in other income (expense).

The fair value of share-based compensation is estimated on the date of grant using a binomial model. Volatility is based on an average of the implied volatility in the open market and the annualized volatility of Zebra stock prices over our entire stock history. Stock option grants in the table below include both stock options, all of which were non-qualified and stock appreciation rights (SAR) that will be settled in Zebra stock. Restricted stock grants are valued at the market closing price on the date of the grant. The following table shows the weighted-average assumptions used for grants of SARs as well as the fair value of the grants based on those assumptions:

The terms of the SARs are established under either the 2006 Incentive Compensation Plan or the 2011 Long-term Incentive Plan (the “Plans”) and the applicable SAR agreement. Once vested, a SAR entitles the holder to receive a payment equal to the difference between the per-share grant price of the SAR and the fair market value of a share of Zebra stock on the date the SAR is exercised, multiplied by the number of SARs exercised. Exercised SARs are settled in whole shares of Zebra stock, and any fraction of a share is settled in cash. The SARs granted typically vest annually in four equal amounts on each of the first four anniversaries of the grant date, with some SARs vesting over a period of five years. All SARs expire 10 years after the grant date.

The terms of Zebra’s restricted stock grants are defined in the Plans and the applicable award agreements. Restricted grants consist of time vested restricted stock awards (RSA’s), restricted stock units (RSU’s) and performance share awards (PSA’s). Zebra’s restricted stock awards and units are expensed over the vesting period of the related award, typically three to five years. Compensation cost is calculated as the market date fair value on the grant date multiplied by the number of shares granted. Restricted stock units of 8,992 were granted in the second quarter of 2014.

Note 15 – Income Taxes

Zebra has identified, evaluated, and measured the amount of income tax benefits to be recognized for all of our income tax positions. Included in deferred tax assets are amounts related to federal and state net operating losses that resulted from our acquisition of WhereNet Corp in 2007. We intend to utilize these net operating loss carryforwards to offset future income taxes prior to expiration. Under the United States Tax Reform Act of 1986, the amount of benefits from net operating loss carryforwards may be impaired or limited in certain circumstances, including significant changes in ownership interests. The company has reviewed the impact of ownership changes and believes that this will not have an impact on the realizability on the related Deferred Tax Asset recorded as of June 28, 2014.

Zebra earns a significant amount of our operating income outside of the U.S., which is deemed to be permanently reinvested in foreign jurisdictions. We do not intend to repatriate funds. Repatriation would result in higher effective tax rates. Borrowing in the U.S. would result in increased interest expense.

In 2014, we completed an audit of the 2011 and 2012 US federal income tax returns with no material impact on the financial statements. Various tax years remain open to examination by multiple state taxing jurisdictions. Tax authorities in the United Kingdom have completed income tax audits for tax years through 2011 with no material impact on the financial statements.

At June 28, 2014 Zebra’s unrealized tax benefit was $4,000. Zebra’s continuing practice is to recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters as part of income tax expense. For the six months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013, we did not accrue any interest or penalties into income tax expense.

Effective tax rate

     11.1     19.0     18.2     18.6

The effective income tax rate for the first six months of 2014 was 18.2% compared with 18.6% for 2013. In order to streamline the management, financing and capital structure of its foreign affiliates, in 2012, Zebra established a foreign holding company and restructured the ownership of its foreign affiliates. This new holding company structure allows Zebra to consolidate the ownership of its significant foreign affiliates under a single holding company. In addition, the structure introduced leverage which gives Zebra the ability to facilitate cash pooling and improve the capital structure of its non-US operations. The new capital structure and global financing favorably impacts the Zebra’s effective tax rate, and facilitates the tax efficient movement of Zebra’s foreign cash to finance the ongoing operating and investment needs of the foreign subsidiaries. The restructuring was completed in the second quarter of 2012 and was in place for the full year in 2013. Income tax expense for the second quarter of 2014 includes a discrete charge of $2.55 million related to the acquisition expenses incurred for which no tax benefit was recorded. These acquisition expenses relate to the recent announcement that Zebra entered into a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions, Inc.

Note 16 – Other Comprehensive Income

Stockholders’ equity includes certain items classified as accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI), including:

 

   

Unrealized gains (losses) on hedging transactions relate to derivative instruments used to hedge the currency exchange rates for forecasted euro sales. These hedges are designated as cash flow hedges, and we have deferred income statement recognition of gains and losses until the hedged transaction occurs. See Note 9 for more details.

   

Unrealized gains (losses) on investments are deferred from income statement recognition until the gains or losses are realized.

   

Foreign currency translation adjustment relates to our non-U.S. subsidiary companies that have designated a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar. We are required to translate the subsidiary functional currency financial statements to dollars using a combination of historical, period-end, and average foreign exchange rates. This combination of rates creates the foreign currency translation adjustment component of other comprehensive income.

Note 17 – New Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the FASB issued update 2014-09, ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. This guidance is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that requires a company to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. This standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those annual periods. Management is still assessing the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

Note 18 – Subsequent Event

During 2012, Zebra established a foreign holding company and restructured the ownership structure of its foreign affiliates. The new structure introduced leverage which favorably impacted Zebra’s effective tax rate and the Company recorded a benefit of $6.1 million during the first two quarters of 2014. However, the change in UK tax code, signed into law on July 17, 2014, will impact the tax position of the Company due to limitations on interest deductions and the Company expects to record a discrete charge of $6.1 million in the third quarter of 2014. This discrete charge is expected to be fully offset in the fourth quarter of 2014, if the Company is able to close the recently announced acquisition transaction of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions, Inc. in 2014. In addition, if this is the case, the interest deduction currently disallowed in Q3 will be taken as a benefit in Q4. At this time, the Company expects the acquisition transaction to close in 2014 and will record the full year tax benefit in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Consolidated Results of Operations – Second Quarter

Sales

Net sales for the second quarter of 2014, compared with the corresponding 2013 quarter, increased 13.9% as a result of growth across all product categories with notable increases in supplies, services, and tabletop, desktop and mobile printers. The increase in service revenue was favorably affected by the December 2013 acquisition of Hart Systems LLC. The increase in North American sales was favorably affected by higher shipments of large enterprise deals, as well as, modest revenues from Hart Systems. The Europe, Middle East and Africa region benefited from improved business activity, with notable sales to retail customers. Movement in foreign currency, net of hedges, increased sales by $3,523,000.

Gross Profit

Gross margin of 49.3%, versus 47.8% for 2013, reflects the favorable impact of lower product costs, improved absorption of fixed costs from higher sales across all regions and across all product categories, and a reduction in freight costs. Favorable movements in foreign currency, net of hedges, increased second quarter gross profit by $1,867,000.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for the second quarter increased 28.9%, primarily due to increased compensation and amortization costs as a result of the December 2013 acquisition of Hart Systems LLC, as well as acquisition costs related to the pending acquisition of substantially all of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions announced in April 2014. Acquisition and integration costs consist of transactions costs and integration costs.

Income Taxes

Effective income tax rate of 11.1% reflects the effect of acquisition and integration costs on income primarily in the U.S. These higher costs are resulting in a higher than normal percentage of income jurisdictions that have lower effective income tax rates.

Loss on Forward Rate Swaps

We entered into two tranches of forward interest rate swaps that will economically hedge the planned indebtedness related to the pending acquisition of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions announced in April 2014. The forward interest rate yield curve decreased between the time we traded the interest rate swaps and the second quarter close. Other expense for the second quarter increased principally due to the Loss on forward interest rate swap contracts. Accordingly, a loss of $2,433,000 was recognized in the Statement of Earnings as the swaps did not qualify for hedge accounting as of the second quarter close.

Consolidated Results of Operations – Year to date

Sales

Net sales for the first six months of 2014, compared with the corresponding 2013 period, increased 17.7% as a result of growth across all region and across all product categories, with notable increases in supplies, service contracts, and tabletop, desktop and mobile printers. Increased services and software revenue is primarily due to growth in services revenue attributable to both organic growth and the December 2013 acquisition of Hart Systems. The Europe, Middle East and Africa region benefited from improved business activity, with notable sales to retail customers. Movement in foreign currency, net of hedges, increased sales growth by $6,691,000.

Gross Profit

Gross margin of 50.3%, versus 47.7% for 2013, reflects the favorable impact of lower product costs, improved absorption of fixed costs, lower freight costs, and revenue related to the December 2013 acquisition of Hart Systems LLC. Favorable movements in foreign currency, net of hedges, increased sales for the first half of 2014 by $4,121,000.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for the first six months of 2014 increased 20.1% primarily as a result of increased compensation and amortization costs from the December 2013 acquisition of Hart Systems LLC, as well as acquisition costs related to the pending acquisition of substantially all of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions announced in April 2014. Acquisition and integration costs consist of transaction costs and integration costs.

Operating expenses are summarized below (in thousands, except percentages):

As of June 28, 2014, Zebra had $528,581,000 in cash and investments and marketable securities, compared with $415,795,000 at December 31, 2013. Factors affecting cash and investment balances during the first six months of 2014 include the following (changes below include the impact of foreign currency):

 

   

Accounts receivable decreased $11,359,000 due to timing of receipts.

 

   

Stock option exercises and purchases under the stock purchase plan contributed $7,711,000.

Zebra earns a significant amount of our operating income outside of the U.S., which is deemed to be permanently reinvested in foreign jurisdictions.

On April 14, 2014, Zebra entered into a definitive agreement under which Zebra will acquire substantially all of the Enterprise business of Motorola Solutions, Inc. for $3.45 billion in an all-cash transaction. Zebra intends to fund the acquisition with a combination of approximately $200 million of available cash on hand and the issuance of $3.25 billion in new debt, a portion of which will be subject to variable interest rates. To mitigate our exposure to these variable interest rates, we entered into forward interest rate swap contracts that exchange variable-for-fixed cash flows with a single counterparty. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions including regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q. The evaluation was conducted under the supervision of our Disclosure Committee, and with the participation of management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that (i) the information required to be disclosed by us in this report on Form 10-Q was recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and (ii) information required to be disclosed by us in our reports that we file or furnish under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

During the quarter covered by this report, there have been no changes in our internal controls that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

Inherent Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within Zebra have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

See Note 11 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

Recent Developments

On April 14, 2014, Zebra Technologies Corporation, a Delaware corporation, (“Zebra” or “Company”) and Motorola Solutions, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Motorola Solutions”), entered into a Master Acquisition Agreement (the “Master Acquisition Agreement”), an Intellectual Property Agreement and an Employee Matters Agreement (the “IP Agreement”, “Employee Matters Agreement” and collectively, the “Principal Agreements”). Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Principal Agreements, which have been approved by our board of directors, we have agreed to acquire (the “Acquisition”) Motorola Solution’s Enterprise business (the “Enterprise business”). Certain assets of Motorola Solutions relating to the Enterprise business will be excluded from the transaction and retained by it, including Motorola Solution’s iDEN infrastructure business and other assets and certain liabilities as specified in the Principal Agreements. The Acquisition is structured as a combination of stock and asset sales and a merger of certain U.S. entities. Upon the closing of the Acquisition, we will pay to Motorola Solutions $3.45 billion in cash, subject to a working capital adjustment. In addition, we will assume certain liabilities related to the Enterprise business under the terms of the Principal Agreements.

Completion of the Acquisition is subject to various conditions, including, among others, (i) no order or other legal restraint or prohibition being in effect that would prohibit or prevent the transactions from being consummated; (ii) no legal proceeding having been commenced by any governmental entity that seeks to prevent, prohibit or make illegal the transactions to be consummated; (iii) certain specified filings with governmental entities having been made; (iv) all consents and approvals of certain specified governmental entities having been obtained; and (v) the applicable waiting period (and any extensions thereof) under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act having expired or otherwise having been terminated. Each party’s obligation to consummate the Acquisition is also subject to certain additional conditions, including performance in all material respects by the other party of its obligations under the Principal Agreements. The Master Acquisition Agreement contains certain termination rights for both us and Motorola Solutions, including if the initial closing of the Acquisition has not occurred by April 13, 2015.

We intend to fund the Acquisition and the related fees, commissions and expenses with a combination of cash on hand and new financing. Concurrently with the signing of the Master Acquisition Agreement, we entered into a financing commitment letter (the “Commitment Letter”) with Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. (the “Lender”) whereby the Lender committed to fund $2.0 billion under a new senior secured term loan facility, provide a $250 million new senior secured revolving credit facility, and up to $1.25 billion under a bridge facility (less the aggregate proceeds of new unsecured senior notes that would be issued in a Rule 144A offering) (together, the “Financing”). We expect the Financing, together with cash balances, to be sufficient to provide the financing necessary to consummate the Acquisition. The financing commitment of the Lender is subject to certain conditions set forth in the Commitment Letter.

We have agreed to use reasonable best efforts to obtain the Financing and Motorola Solutions agreed to reasonably cooperate in our efforts to obtain the Financing. There is no financing condition to the Acquisition. However, in the event of a Financing Failure (as defined in the Master Acquisition Agreement) and subsequent termination of the Master Acquisition Agreement, Motorola Solutions may be entitled to a termination fee in the amount of $250 million as Motorola Solution’s sole and exclusive remedy. In circumstances where the fee is not the sole and exclusive remedy, Motorola Solutions will have available to it all other remedies as permitted by the Master Acquisition Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Principal Agreements and Commitment Letter does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Master Acquisition Agreement, the IP Agreement, the Employee Matters Agreement and the Commitment Letter, which were filed as Exhibits 2.1, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 to our Form 8-K filed April 16, 2014 and incorporated herein by reference. The Principal Agreements and the Commitment Letter are filed to provide security holders with information regarding their terms. They are not intended to provide any other factual information about us, Motorola Solutions or their respective subsidiaries and affiliates, or the Enterprise business. These agreements contain representations and warranties by each of the parties to the applicable agreement. These representations and warranties were made solely for the benefit of the other parties to each such agreement and (a) are not intended to be treated as categorical statements of fact, but rather as a way of allocating risk to one of the parties if those statements prove to be inaccurate, (b) may have been qualified in the applicable agreement by

 

32


confidential disclosure schedules that were delivered to the other party in connection with the signing of the agreements, which disclosure schedules contain information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations, warranties and covenants set forth in such agreements, (c) may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the parties that differ from what might be viewed as material to stockholders and (d) were made only as of the date of the agreement or such other date or dates as may be specified in the agreement. Accordingly, investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of us, our subsidiaries and affiliates, Motorola Solutions, their subsidiaries and affiliates or the Enterprise business.

Risks Related to the Acquisition

There can be no assurance that the Acquisition will be consummated on the terms or timetable currently anticipated or at all.

Although we expect to close the Acquisition prior to December 31, 2014, there can be no assurance that the acquisition will be consummated on the terms or timetable currently anticipated or at all. In order to consummate the acquisition, we must obtain certain regulatory and other approvals and consents in a timely manner. If these approvals or consents are not received, or they are not received on terms that satisfy the conditions set forth in the Master Acquisition Agreement, then we and/or Motorola Solutions will not be obligated to complete the acquisition. The Master Acquisition Agreement also contains other closing conditions, which may not be satisfied or waived. In addition, under circumstances specified in the Master Acquisition Agreement, we or Motorola Solutions may terminate the Master Acquisition Agreement. There is no financing condition to the Acquisition. However, in the event of a Financing Failure (as defined in the Master Acquisition Agreement) and subsequent termination of the Master Acquisition Agreement, Motorola Solutions may be entitled to a termination fee in the amount of $250 million as its sole and exclusive remedy. In circumstances where the fee is not the sole and exclusive remedy, Motorola Solutions will have available to it all other remedies as permitted by the Master Acquisition Agreement. Additionally, we will be required to pay significant costs incurred in connection with the Acquisition, including legal, accounting, financial advisory and other costs, whether or not the Acquisition is completed. The occurrence of any of these events individually or in combination could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, cash flows and growth prospects.

If we do not obtain financing, we will be unable to consummate the Acquisition.

We intend to fund the Acquisition and the related fees, commissions and expenses with a combination of cash on hand and new financing. Concurrently with the signing of the Master Acquisition Agreement, we entered into the Commitment Letter with the Lender to provide Financing for the Acquisition. We currently expect the financing under the Commitment Letter, together with cash balances, to be sufficient to provide the financing necessary to consummate the Acquisition. However, the financing commitment of the Lender is subject to certain conditions set forth in the Commitment Letter and we can provide no assurance that the Lender will ultimately provide the financing contemplated by the Commitment Letter. If the necessary financing is not available pursuant to the Commitment Letter, we will seek alternative sources of financing for the Acquisition. We cannot assure you that any additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms, if at all. To the extent that financing proves to be unavailable when needed to consummate the Acquisition, we may be unable to complete the Acquisition. See “There can be no assurance that the Acquisition will be consummated on the terms or timetable currently anticipated or at all.”

We may be unable to effectively integrate the Enterprise business into our existing business after the Acquisition.

We cannot assure you that we will be able to integrate the Enterprise business effectively into the Company. The integration of the Enterprise business, which is significantly larger than our existing business, into our operations will be a significant undertaking and will require significant attention from our management. The Acquisition, with an approximate enterprise value of $3.45 billion, is significantly larger than prior acquisitions we have completed and will significantly increase the size of our operations, increase our number of employees and operating facilities and expand our geographic scope. There can be no assurance that we will be able to successfully integrate the Enterprise business, or if such integration is successfully accomplished, that such integration will not be more costly than presently contemplated. There can also be no assurance that we can successfully manage the combined business due to our greatly increased size and scope. If we cannot successfully integrate and manage the Enterprise business within a reasonable time following the Acquisition, we may not be able to realize the potential and anticipated benefits of the acquisition, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, cash flows and growth prospects.

 

33


We may be unable to realize the expected growth opportunities and cost savings from the Acquisition.

In connection with the integration of the Enterprise business into our existing operating structure, we will seek to realize growth opportunities, along with cost savings. We currently expect to realize cost savings of approximately $100 million per year to be fully achieved by 2017. The anticipated cost savings are based upon assumptions about our ability to implement integration measures in a timely fashion and within certain cost parameters. Our ability to achieve the planned cost synergies is dependent upon a significant number of factors, some of which may be beyond our control. For example, we may be unable to eliminate duplicative costs in a timely fashion or at all. Our inability to realize anticipated cost savings, and revenue enhancements from the acquisition could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, cash flows and growth prospects.

The Acquisition could divert the attention of management.

If we complete the Acquisition, we will be entering new lines of business that we lack experience managing. Similarly, because the Enterprise business is significantly larger than our existing business, we will be required to manage new and larger lines of business, and consequently the integration process will require significant attention from management, which may divert management’s attention from our existing businesses. Management may also have difficulty assimilating the corporate cultures, maintaining employee morale and retaining key employees. These diversions, together with other difficulties we may have integrating the Enterprise business, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, cash flows and growth prospects.

We may be unable to retain key employees who are currently employed by the Enterprise business.

Generally, employees of the Enterprise business are not contractually obligated to continue their employment with the Enterprise business. Our ability to successfully integrate and operate the Enterprise business depends in part on the continued service of senior management and other key personnel of the Enterprise business. We can provide no assurance that we will be successful in retaining the service of the Enterprise business’s senior managers and key employees, and the failure to do so could have a material adverse effect on our ability to integrate the Enterprise business.

The Enterprise business may have liabilities that are not known to us.

As part of the Acquisition, we will assume certain liabilities of the Enterprise business. There may be liabilities that we failed or were unable to discover in the course of performing due diligence investigations into the Enterprise business. Any such liabilities, individually or in the aggregate, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results, cash flows and growth prospects.

The Acquisition will entitle certain customers of the Enterprise business to terminate their agreements with it as a result of change of control provisions.

The Acquisition may entitle certain Enterprise customers to terminate certain of their agreements with the Enterprise business. We cannot avoid the possibility that some customers may exercise their termination rights and opt to discontinue business with the Enterprise business once we complete the Acquisition, which could have an adverse effect on our expected revenues following the Acquisition.

Moreover, the Acquisition may cause some of our existing customers to conclude that they are overly reliant on a single provider. In such circumstance, our customers may engage our competitors or facilitate the emergence of new competitors to diversify sourcing and service options, which could have an adverse effect on our expected revenues following the Acquisition.

 

34


Risks Related to the Indebtedness

In connection with the Acquisition, we will incur substantial debt obligations, which could adversely affect our financial condition.

As of March 29, 2014, after giving pro forma effect to the Acquisition, our total outstanding debt for borrowed money would have been approximately $3.25 billion, assuming we did not issue any convertible preferred stock to finance the Acquisition. In addition, subject to restrictions in the agreements governing our existing and future indebtedness, we may incur additional indebtedness. Our substantial level of indebtedness could have important consequences, including the following:

 

   

it may be more difficult for us to satisfy our obligations with respect to our existing indebtedness or future indebtedness, including indebtedness we incur in connection with the Acquisition;

 

   

our ability to obtain additional financing for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions or general corporate purposes may be impaired;

 

   

a substantial portion of cash flow from operations will be used to pay interest and principal on the indebtedness, which may reduce the funds available to us for other purposes, such as acquisitions and capital expenditures;

 

   

it may limit our ability to borrow additional funds;

 

   

result in our being at a competitive disadvantage with reduced flexibility in planning for, or responding to, changing conditions in the industry, including increased competition; and

 

   

make us more vulnerable to economic downturns and adverse developments in the business.

We expect to fund our expenses and to pay the principal and interest on our indebtedness from cash flow from operations. Our ability to meet our expenses and to pay principal and interest on our indebtedness when due thus depends on our future performance, which will be affected by financial, business, economic and other factors. We will not be able to control many of these factors, such as economic conditions in the markets where we operate and pressure from competitors. Additionally, we have not previously undertaken substantial amounts of indebtedness. Historically, we have operated our business without incurring significant indebtedness for borrowed money and have limited experience operating our business subject to the constraints imposed by agreements governing such indebtedness.

Despite the indebtedness to be incurred in connection with the Acquisition, we may be able to incur substantially more indebtedness and take other actions that could further exacerbate the risk associated with our substantial indebtedness.

We plan to incur approximately $3.25 billion of indebtedness in connection with the Acquisition. In addition to the planned financing activities, we may be able to incur substantially more indebtedness in the future, resulting in higher leverage. Subject to the limits contained in the agreements governing our indebtedness, we may incur additional indebtedness from time to time to finance working capital, capital expenditures, investments or acquisitions, or for other purposes. To the extent we incur additional indebtedness, the risks associated with our substantial indebtedness will be exacerbated.

Our use of derivative financial instruments to reduce interest rate risk associated with the Acquisition may result in added volatility in our quarterly operating results.

We do not hold or issue derivative financial instruments for trading purposes. However, we do utilize derivative financial instruments to reduce interest rate risk associated with the planned indebtedness for the Acquisition. To manage the planned variable interest rate risk, we entered into forward interest rate swap agreements, which will effectively convert a portion of our planned indebtedness into a fixed rate loan. Under generally accepted accounting principles, the fair values of the swap contracts, which will either be amounts receivable from or payable to counterparties, are reflected as either assets or liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. We record its fair value change in our Consolidated Statements of Earnings, as a component of “Other income (expense)”. The associated impact on our quarterly operating results is directly related to changes in prevailing interest rates. If interest rates increase, we would have a non-cash gain on the swaps, and vice versa. Consequently, these swap contracts will introduce volatility to our operating results.

 

35


Restrictive covenants in the agreements governing our indebtedness may limit our current and future operations, particularly our ability to respond to changes in our business or to pursue our business strategies.

The agreements governing the indebtedness we expect to incur to fund the Acquisition, and instruments governing any future indebtedness will contain, a number of restrictive covenants that impose significant operating and financial restrictions, including restrictions on our ability to take actions that we believe may be in our interest. We expect these covenants will limit our ability to:

 

   

incur additional indebtedness or guarantees;

 

   

pay dividends or make other distributions or repurchase or redeem our stock or prepay or redeem certain indebtedness;

 

   

sell or dispose of assets and issue capital stock of restricted subsidiaries;

 

   

incur liens or enter into sale-lease-back transactions;

 

   

enter into agreements restricting our subsidiaries’ ability to pay dividends;

 

   

enter into transactions with affiliates;

 

   

engage in new lines of business;

 

   

consolidate, merge or enter into other fundamental changes;

 

   

make loans, investments and/or acquisitions; and

 

   

enter into amendments or modifications of certain material subordinated debt agreements or organizational documents.

Additionally, the senior credit facility we plan to enter into to fund a portion of the Enterprise acquisition will require us to maintain in certain circumstances compliance with a consolidated total secured net leverage ratio. Our ability to comply with this ratio may be affected by events beyond our control, and we cannot assure you that we will meet this ratio.

The restrictions could adversely affect our ability to:

 

   

finance operations;

 

   

make needed capital expenditures;

 

   

make strategic acquisitions or investments or enter into alliances;

 

   

withstand a future downturn in our business or the economy in general;

 

   

engage in business activities, including future opportunities, that may be in our interest; and

 

   

plan for or react to market conditions or otherwise execute our business strategies.

A breach of any of the covenants contained in the agreements governing the indebtedness (including an inability to comply with the financial maintenance covenants) that is not remedied within the applicable cure period, if any, would result in an event of default under the indebtedness we plan to incur to fund the Acquisition. If, when required, we are unable to repay or refinance our indebtedness or amend the covenants contained in the agreements governing our indebtedness, or if a default otherwise occurs that is not cured or waived, the lenders or holders of our debt securities could elect to declare all borrowings outstanding, together with accrued interest and other fees, to be immediately due and payable or institute foreclosure proceedings against those assets that secure the borrowings. Should the outstanding obligations be accelerated and become due and payable because of any failure to comply with the applicable covenants in the future, we would be required to search for alternative measures to finance current and ongoing obligations of our business. There can be no assurance that such financing will be available on acceptable terms, if at all. Any of these scenarios could adversely impact our liquidity, financial condition and results of operations.

A significant amount of cash will be required to service the indebtedness we plan to incur to fund the Acquisition.

Our ability to make payments on and to refinance the indebtedness we plan to incur to fund the Acquisition and to fund working capital needs, general corporate expenditures and planned capital expenditures will depend on our ability to generate a significant amount of cash in the future. This, to a certain extent, is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, business, legislative, regulatory and other factors that are beyond our control. Additionally, the specific interest rates with respect to the Financing have not been determined, and will not be determined for some time. As a result, we currently do not know with certainty the exact amount of interest expense we will be subject to as a result of the Financing.

If our business does not generate sufficient cash flows from operations or if future borrowings are not available to us in an amount sufficient to enable us to pay our indebtedness or to fund our other liquidity needs, we may need to refinance all or a portion of our indebtedness on or before the maturity thereof, sell assets, reduce or delay capital investments or seek to raise additional capital, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our operations. In addition, we may

not be able to affect any of these actions, if necessary, on commercially reasonable terms or at all. Our ability to restructure or refinance our indebtedness will depend on the condition of the capital and debt markets and our financial condition at such time. Any refinancing of our indebtedness could be at higher interest rates and may require us to comply with more onerous covenants, which could further restrict business operations. The terms of anticipated or future debt instruments may limit or prevent us from taking any of these actions. In addition, any failure to make scheduled payments of interest and/or principal on outstanding indebtedness would likely result in a reduction of our credit rating, which could harm our ability to access additional capital on commercially reasonable terms or at all. Our inability to generate sufficient cash flow to satisfy our debt service obligations, or to refinance or restructure our obligations on commercially reasonable terms or at all, would have an adverse effect, which could be material, on our business, financial condition and results of operations, as well as on our ability to satisfy the obligations in respect of our indebtedness.

In addition to the other information included in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, and the factors identified under “Safe Harbor” at the end of Item 2 of Part I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which could materially affect our business, financial condition, cash flows or results of operations. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, are not the only risks facing Zebra. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, cash flows and/or results of operations.
