The contingent consideration is payable quarterly over the 12 consecutive calendar quarters following the acquisition, contingent upon the acquired business achieving certain quarterly revenue targets during the period. To the extent that the quarterly revenue target is not met in any particular quarter, the earn-out period will be extended for up to four additional quarters.

The parties to the Merger Agreement made customary representations, warranties and covenants therein, and the completion of the acquisition of Elements Local was subject to customary conditions described therein. In addition, the Merger Agreement prohibits the Stockholders from competing with Bridgeline Digital for a period of three years ending on the second anniversary of the completion of the earn-out period.

In connection with the acquisition, Bridgeline Digital will employ Jeremy LaDuque as Senior Vice President of Franchise and Large Dealer Network Sales.
