Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 8, 2013, Matrix Service Company (the "Company"), and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Matrix North American Construction, Inc. ("US Buyer"), and Matrix Canadian Holdings, Inc. ("Canadian Buyer" and, together with US Buyer, the "Buyers"), entered into a Sale and Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement"), with Kvaerner AS, Kvaerner North American Construction Inc. ("KNAC Inc." and, together with Kvaerner AS, the "Sellers"), and Kvaerner ASA (the "Sellers' Guarantor"), pursuant to which the Buyers will acquire the Sellers' business of union construction, fabrication and maintenance services to the iron and steel, power, and industrial sectors in the US and Canada, respectively (the "Acquisition"). Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, US Buyer will acquire substantially all of the assets of KNAC Inc. and Canadian Buyer will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Kvaerner North American Construction Ltd. from Kvaerner AS. Certain assets and liabilities, primarily all assets and liabilities related to a KNAC Inc. contract with Longview Power LLC, including any financial effects of the arbitration related thereto, will be retained by KNAC Inc. and is not part of the Acquisition.
At the closing of the Acquisition (the "Closing"), expected to be by late December 2013, Buyers will pay closing consideration valued at $80.3 million, net of cash acquired and certain adjustments. As a source of funds for any indemnification liabilities of the Sellers, the Purchase Agreement requires the Sellers to obtain, and provide the Buyers with, a letter of credit in the amount of $14,580,000, which, under certain circumstances, may be reduced to $9,720,000 at the six-month anniversary of the Closing and $4,860,000 at the 12-month of the Closing, and terminated on the 18-month anniversary of the Closing. The Purchase Agreement includes a guarantee by the Sellers' Guarantor of the indemnification obligations of the Sellers. The Company is jointly and severally liable for the indemnification obligations of the Buyers under the Purchase Agreement.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants, indemnities and termination rights of the parties to the agreement. The completion of the Acquisition is subject to the satisfaction of various customary closing conditions, including expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, which address activities, events or developments the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such things as the expected date of Closing, are forward-looking statements. A number of risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from these statements, including the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Purchase Agreement and the inability to complete the proposed Acquisition due to, among other things, the failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, as well as other risk factors described from time to time in the Company's documents and reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company assumes no obligation to update publicly such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
