Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Unregistered Sale of Equity Se


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Merger Agreement

On December 20, 2013, Dynamics Research Corporation, a Massachusetts corporation (the "Company"), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Engility Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("Engility") and wholly-owned subsidiary of Engility Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Holdings"), and Engility Solutions, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Engility ("Merger Sub"), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company, resulting in the Company being the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Engility (the "Merger"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, Merger Sub has agreed to commence a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.10 per share (the "Shares"), for a purchase price of $11.50 per Share, net to the holder thereof in cash (the "Offer Price"), without interest and net of withholding taxes (the "Offer").

On December 20, 2013, the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") unanimously approved the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Offer and the Merger, and intends to file a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") recommending that the Company's shareholders tender their Shares into the Offer.

The Offer is not subject to a financing condition. The acceptance of Shares for payment of the Offer Price at the expiration of the Offer will be conditioned on:

at least two-thirds of all outstanding Shares on a fully-diluted basis having been validly tendered into (and not withdrawn from) the Offer prior to the expiration date of the Offer,

expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended,

the absence of legal restraints enjoining or otherwise preventing or prohibiting the consummation of the Offer, the Top-Up Option (defined below), and

other customary conditions.

Following the acceptance of Shares tendered in the Offer for payment, Engility has an option to purchase from the Company the number of Shares required for the Merger to become effective without a meeting of shareholders in accordance with
Section 11.05 of the Massachusetts Business Corporation Act (the "Top-Up Option"). If the Top-Up Option is not exercised after completion of the Offer, or cannot be exercised because the Company does not have enough authorized Shares to permit such a Merger, then each of the Company and Engility has the right to cause the Company to call a meeting of the shareholders of the Company for the purpose of approving the Merger.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, the Merger will be consummated as soon as practicable following the completion of the Offer, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the remaining conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of the Company's common stock, par value $0.10 per share, other than Shares held by the Company, Engility, Merger Sub or any of their respective direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries and any shares held by shareholders who perfect their appraisal rights (if applicable), will be converted into the right to receive the Offer Price.


Immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, each Share that is subject to vesting or forfeiture conditions shall become fully vested and shall, at the effective time of the Merger, be converted into the right to receive the . . .


Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

The information set forth under Item 1.01 regarding the Top-Up Option is incorporated by reference into this item. The Top-Up Option was issued without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), in reliance upon the exemption from registration set forth in
Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, as a transaction by an issuer not involving a public offering.




Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

The information included in Item 1.01 under the heading "Amendment to Rights Agreement" and in Item 5.03 under the heading "Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year" is incorporated by reference into this item.



Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

In connection with the approval by the Board of the Merger Agreement, the Company agreed to terminate its Change of Control Agreement and Employment Agreement with James P. Regan, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, subject to the consummation of the Offer. In lieu thereof, the Company entered into a letter agreement, pursuant to which Mr. Regan would receive a special transaction success bonus of $2.5 million, contingent on the successful completion of the Merger and Mr. Regan's continued employment by the Company through completion of the Merger, among other things. The Company also entered into letter agreements with each of David Keleher, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, and Helen E. Tsingos, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary of the Company, pursuant to which they would receive transaction success retention bonuses of $600,000 and $100,000, respectively, in each case contingent upon the successful completion of the Merger and continued employment by the Company through completion of the Merger, among other things. Half of such retention bonus would be payable at the closing of the Merger, and the other half would be paid at the earlier of (i) the six-month anniversary of the closing of the Merger or (ii) the employee's termination without cause, or the employee's voluntary termination without good reason.

Furthermore, the Company's Special Severance Plan is due to expire at year end. In lieu thereof, the Company has entered into a new Special Severance Plan pursuant to which the participants would receive a lump sum cash payment if the participant is terminated without cause or terminates his or her employment for good reason within a period following a change in control. The amount of such payment would be equal to a multiple of such participant's monthly salary and monthly pro-rated portion of target annual incentive compensation, plus a multiple of monthly premiums for health benefits. If they become eligible for payment under the Company's new Special Severance Plan:

Mr. Keleher would receive payment for 18 months of benefit, presently valued at approximately $631,314;

Ms. Tsingos would receive payment for 12 months of benefit, presently valued at approximately $216,370; and

Steven P. Wentzell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Human Resources, would receive payment for 12 months of benefit, presently valued at approximately $347,580.

Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, regarding future events and the future results of the Company that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about the Company and the beliefs and assumptions of the management of the Company. Words such as "anticipates", "believes", "estimates", "expects", "intends", "plans", "projects", "may", "will", "should" and other similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are predictions of future events or trends and are not statements of historical matters. These statements are based on current expectations and beliefs of the Company and involve a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual results may differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Among others, the following risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: (i) that the Offer or the Merger may not be consummated in a timely manner, if at all; (ii) uncertainty as to the number of shareholders who will tender their Shares in the Offer; (iii) failure to obtain applicable regulatory approvals, or that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay or enjoin the Merger; (iv) that the Merger Agreement may be terminated in circumstances that would cause the Company to pay Engility a termination fee, (v) that the business of the Company may suffer as a result of the proposed Merger and the Merger Agreement is terminated; (vi) failure to satisfy conditions to the acceptance of Shares for payment in the Offer or the consummation of the Merger; and
(vii) general economic and business conditions. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this document or in the case of the statements incorporated by reference. Additional risk factors that may affect future results are contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 18, 2013 and in the Company's other filings with the SEC. Except to the extent required by applicable law or regulation, the Company undertakes no obligation to revise or update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason.
