Form 8-K for CBRE GROUP, INC.


13-Nov-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial Oblig


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On November 12, 2013, the Company announced that it and its subsidiaries-CBRE Holdings Limited and CBRE UK Acquisition Company Limited (together, the "Purchasing Parties")-entered into a Share Sale Agreement (the "Share Sale Agreement") with William Investments Limited and certain individuals named therein. Under the terms of the Share Sale Agreement, at the closing the Purchasing Parties will acquire Norland Holdings Ltd, a private limited company established under the laws of England and Wales ("Norland"), for 250 million
(approximately $400 million), plus up to 50 million (approximately $80 million)
of deferred contingent consideration as well as a payment for excess working capital and related items. This amount will be payable in cash, except for 5.6 million (approximately $9 million), the value of which is payable in Class A Common Stock of the Company to Norland senior management. The closing is conditioned upon the receipt of clearance from the European Commission. The Share Sale Agreement may be terminated by the Purchasing Parties prior to the closing if the sellers are in material breach of their obligations under the Share Sale Agreement. The closing is expected to occur before year end 2013.

The foregoing description of the Share Sale Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Share Sale Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 1.01 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The Share Sale Agreement has been included as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K to provide investors and stockholders with information regarding its terms. The Share Sale Agreement is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company or Norland Holdings Ltd. The Share Sale Agreement contains representations and warranties that the parties to the Share Sale Agreements made to each other (and solely for the benefit of each other). The assertions embodied in such representations and warranties are qualified by information contained in confidential disclosure schedules that the parties exchanged in connection with signing the Share Sale Agreement. Accordingly, investors and stockholders should not rely on such representations and warranties as characterizations of the complete state of facts or circumstances, as they were only made as of the date of the Share Sale Agreement and are modified in important part by the underlying disclosure schedules. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of such representations and warranties may change after the date of the Share Sale Agreement, and subsequent information may not be fully reflected in the Company's public disclosures.



Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
