Item 1.01              Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On January 17, 2018, Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Wyndham Worldwide”), WHG BB Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Wyndham Worldwide (“Merger Sub”), and La Quinta Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (“La Quinta”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Wyndham Worldwide has agreed to acquire La Quinta’s franchising and management business (the “Acquired Business”).  In connection with the transaction, La Quinta and CorePoint Lodging, Inc. a Maryland corporation and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of La Quinta (“CorePoint”), entered into a Separation and Distribution Agreement dated January 17, 2018 (the “Separation Agreement”), pursuant to which (together with the documents further described in the Separation Agreement), on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Separation Agreement, immediately prior to the Merger (as defined below), La Quinta will, among other things, (i) effect a reclassification and combination of the La Quinta Common Stock (as defined below) whereby each share of La Quinta Common Stock (par value $0.01) will be reclassified and combined into one half of a share of La Quinta Common Stock (par value $0.02) (the “Reverse Stock Split”), (ii) convey La Quinta’s owned real estate assets and certain related assets and liabilities to CorePoint (the “CorePoint Business”) and, (iii) thereafter, distribute (the “Distribution”) to the La Quinta common stockholders all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of CorePoint, which will become a separate publicly traded company.  Immediately following the Distribution, in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into La Quinta (the “Merger”), with La Quinta continuing as the surviving company in the Merger and as a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Wyndham Worldwide.  The boards of directors of each of Wyndham Worldwide and La Quinta have approved the Merger Agreement.

 

Merger Agreement

 

On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, which will occur immediately after the effective time of the Distribution (the “Effective Time”), and as a result thereof, each share of common stock of La Quinta (“La Quinta Common Stock”) that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares of La Quinta Common Stock (i) held by La Quinta as treasury stock or (ii) owned by Wyndham Worldwide or Merger Sub immediately prior to the Effective Time (which will be canceled without payment of any consideration) and La Quinta Common Stock for which appraisal rights have been validly exercised and not withdrawn (collectively, the “Excluded Shares”)) will be converted into the right to receive $8.40 in cash per share, prior to giving effect to the Reverse Stock Split, and if the Reverse Stock Split is completed prior to the Effective Time, each share will instead be converted into the right to receive $16.80 in cash per share (the “Merger Consideration”). Any fractional shares of La Quinta Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger (other than any Excluded Shares), including any fractional shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split, will be converted into the right to receive a proportionate fraction of the Merger Consideration.

 

Except as otherwise agreed between Wyndham Worldwide and a holder in writing, immediately prior to the Effective Time, (i) each La Quinta restricted stock award that is then outstanding will, automatically and without any required action on the part of the holder thereof, vest and become free of restrictions as of the Effective Time and be cancelled and terminated, and each holder of a La Quinta restricted stock award will have the right to receive from the surviving corporation, in respect of such La Quinta restricted stock award, an amount in cash (less any applicable withholding taxes) equal to (A) the number of shares of La Quinta Common Stock subject to such La Quinta restricted stock award, multiplied by (B) the Merger Consideration and (ii) any vesting conditions applicable to each La Quinta restricted share unit that is then outstanding will, automatically and without any required action on the part of the holder thereof, accelerate in full, and such La Quinta restricted share unit will be cancelled and terminated, and each holder of a La Quinta restricted share unit will have the right to receive from the surviving corporation, in respect of such La Quinta restricted share unit, an amount in cash (less any applicable withholding taxes) equal to (A) the number of shares of La Quinta Common Stock previously subject to such restricted share unit award, multiplied by (B) the Merger Consideration.

 

Wyndham Worldwide and La Quinta have made customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Merger Agreement, including, among others, covenants that: (i) La Quinta will conduct the Acquired Business (and the CorePoint Business to the extent any action taken or not taken would reasonably be expect to adversely affect La Quinta, the Acquired Business or Wyndham Worldwide as the owner and operator of the Acquired

 

2



 

Business following the Effective Time in any material respect) in the ordinary course consistent with past practice during the interim period between the execution of the Merger Agreement and the Effective Time, (ii) La Quinta will not engage in certain kinds of transactions during such period without the consent of Wyndham Worldwide, (iii) unless the board of directors of La Quinta (the “La Quinta Board”) effects a Change of Board Recommendation (as defined in the Merger Agreement), La Quinta will cause a meeting of the La Quinta stockholders to be held to consider adoption of the Merger Agreement and approval of amendments to La Quinta’s certificate of incorporation necessary to effect the Reverse Stock Split (the “La Quinta Charter Amendments”), and (iv) subject to certain customary exceptions, the La Quinta Board will recommend adoption of the Merger Agreement and approval of the La Quinta Charter Amendments by the stockholders of La Quinta.  La Quinta has also made certain additional customary covenants, including, among others, covenants not to: (i) solicit or knowingly encourage any inquiries with respect to certain alternative business combination transactions or (ii) subject to certain exceptions designed to allow the La Quinta Board to fulfill its fiduciary duties to La Quinta’s stockholders (described further below), engage in any acquisitions or discussions concerning, or provide any confidential information to, any person relating to certain alternative business combination transactions.

 

Prior to the adoption of the Merger Agreement by La Quinta’s stockholders, the La Quinta Board may (i) withhold, withdraw or modify its recommendation that La Quinta’s stockholders adopt the Merger Agreement or approve, endorse or recommend a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement) or (ii) terminate the Merger Agreement to concurrently enter into a definitive agreement with respect to a Superior Proposal and pay the La Quinta Termination Fee (as defined below) prior to or concurrently with such termination. In connection with any such action, La Quinta must comply with certain notice and other specified conditions, including the requirement that the proposal did not result from a material breach of La Quinta’s non-solicitation obligations, giving Wyndham Worldwide the opportunity to propose revisions to the terms of the transaction contemplated by the Merger Agreement during a match right period and, if requested by Wyndham Worldwide, engaging in good faith negotiations with Wyndham Worldwide during such match right period.

 

Consummation of the Merger is subject to certain customary conditions, including (i) the adoption of the Merger Agreement and approval of the La Quinta Charter Amendments by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of La Quinta Common Stock (the “Stockholder Approval”), (ii) the absence of any law prohibiting or order preventing the consummation of the Merger or the Distribution, (iii) the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (“HSR Approval”), (iv) the absence of a material adverse effect with respect to La Quinta, (v) the receipt by La Quinta of the Cash Payment (as defined below) from CorePoint in accordance with the Separation Agreement, (v) the consummation of the Separation (as defined below) and the Distribution in accordance with the Separation Agreement and (vi) compliance in all material respects on the part of each of Wyndham Worldwide and La Quinta with such party’s covenants under the Merger Agreement, the Separation Agreement and the Employee Matters Agreement (as defined below). The obligation of each party to consummate the Merger is also conditioned upon the other party’s representations and warranties being true and correct (subject to certain materiality exceptions).The consummation of the Merger is not subject to a financing condition.

 

The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for both Wyndham Worldwide and La Quinta, including in the event the Stockholder Approval is not obtained at a duly convened meeting of La Quinta stockholders or in the event the Merger is not consummated on or before July 17, 2018 (which date may be extended by either party by 90 days in the event that all closing conditions are satisfied or waived, other than HSR Approval) (the “Outside Date”). The Merger Agreement further provides that, upon termination of the Merger Agreement in certain circumstances, including if the Merger Agreement is terminated by Wyndham Worldwide in the event the La Quinta Board effects a Change of Board Recommendation (as defined in the Merger Agreement), or by La Quinta in accordance with, and subject to, the terms of the Merger Agreement to enter into a definitive agreement with respect to a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), La Quinta would be required to pay Wyndham Worldwide a termination fee of $37,000,000 (the “La Quinta Termination Fee”).  The Merger Agreement also provides that if the Merger Agreement is terminated in certain circumstances in the event the Stockholder Approval is not obtained or in the event the Merger is not consummated on or before the Outside Date, and in connection with such termination La Quinta has not delivered to Wyndham Worldwide a certificate signed by an officer of La Quinta making certain representations with respect to the status of CorePoint’s debt financing contemplated by the Separation Agreement, La Quinta would be required to pay Wyndham Worldwide the La Quinta Termination Fee.  In no circumstance will La Quinta be obligated to pay more than one La Quinta Termination Fee.

Voting Agreement

 

Concurrently with and as a condition to Wyndham Worldwide’s execution of the Merger Agreement, certain entities affiliated with The Blackstone Group, L.P. (such entities, collectively, the “Blackstone Stockholders”), have entered into a voting agreement with Wyndham Worldwide (the “Voting Agreement”) covering shares of La Quinta Common Stock legally or beneficially owned by the Blackstone Stockholders (the “Voting Party Shares”), which constituted, in the aggregate, approximately 29.97% of La Quinta’s issued and outstanding shares as of January 17, 2018. Pursuant to and subject to the terms and conditions of the Voting Agreement, the Blackstone Stockholders have agreed to vote, or cause the holder of record to vote, the Voting Party Shares in favor of the Merger and certain related transactions and against certain other actions.  The Blackstone Stockholders have also agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to (i) solicit or knowingly encourage any inquiries with respect to certain alternative business combination transactions with respect to La Quinta or (ii) engage in any acquisitions or discussions concerning, or provide any confidential information to, any person relating to certain alternative business combination transactions with respect to La Quinta, and not to, subject to certain exceptions, transfer or dispose of the Voting Party Shares. The Voting Agreement will terminate upon the earliest of (i) the closing of the Merger, (ii) the termination of the Merger Agreement in accordance with its terms, (iii) any material change to the terms of the Merger without the prior written consent of the Blackstone Stockholders that (A) reduces the per-share Merger Consideration (other than certain adjustments in compliance with the Merger Agreement, including with respect to the Reverse Stock Split) or (B) changes the form of consideration payable in the Merger.

The foregoing descriptions of the Merger, the Merger Agreement, the Separation Agreement, the Voting Agreement and the other agreements referenced herein and the transactions contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference, the full text of the Voting Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.2 and incorporated herein by reference and the full text of such other agreements described herein.

 

The Merger Agreement governs the contractual rights between the parties in relation to the Merger. The Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement have been filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement and are not intended to provide, modify or supplement any information about Wyndham Worldwide, Merger Sub, La Quinta, CorePoint or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates, or their respective businesses. In particular, the Merger Agreement is not intended to be, and should not be relied upon as, disclosures regarding any facts and circumstances relating to Wyndham Worldwide or La Quinta.

The representations and warranties may also be subject to contractual standards of materiality that may be different from those generally applicable under the securities laws.
