Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets, Other Events, Financi


Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On February 18, 2014, Akamai Technologies, Inc. (the "Company" or "Akamai") completed its acquisition of Prolexic Technologies, Inc. ("Prolexic") pursuant to the terms of an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated December 2, 2013 by and among Akamai, Panther Acquisition Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Akamai (the "Sub"), Prolexic, certain principal shareholders of Prolexic (the "Principal Stockholders") and a representative of the selling equity holders of Prolexic (the "Representative") (the "Original Merger Agreement"), as amended by that certain First Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger dated January 27, 2014 by and among Akamai, the Sub, Prolexic, the Principal Stockholders and the Representative (the "First Amendment" and, together with the Original Merger Agreement, the "Merger Agreement"). The acquisition of Prolexic was accomplished through the merger of the Sub with and into Prolexic (the "Merger"). In accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement and the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, Prolexic survived the Merger as the surviving corporation and, as the surviving corporation, became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.
On February 18, 2014, at the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger (the "Closing"), the Company paid to the holders of Prolexic's capital stock and the holders of vested warrants and options to purchase shares of Prolexic capital stock (collectively, the "Equityholders") an aggregate of approximately $337.1 million in cash. The amount paid to the Equityholders at the Closing is subject to a post-closing purchase price adjustment process with respect to the net amount of cash, unpaid transaction expenses, working capital and specified other debt and liabilities of Prolexic at Closing. Akamai also assumed all unvested options to purchase shares of Prolexic capital stock; such options have been converted into options to purchase shares of the Company's common stock based on a conversion ratio calculated in accordance with the provisions of the Merger Agreement. The Company deposited $50.4 million in cash into an escrow fund for the purposes of securing the indemnification obligations of the Equityholders to the Company for any and all losses for which the Company is entitled to indemnification pursuant to the Merger Agreement and to provide the source of recovery for any amounts payable to the Company as a result of the post-closing purchase price adjustment process.

The foregoing descriptions of the Merger and the Merger Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the complete text of the Original Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 99.1 to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 2, 2013 and is incorporated herein by reference, and the First Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 99.2 hereto and incorporated by herein by reference.

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Merger Agreement were made only for the purposes of the Merger Agreement, were made as of specific dates, were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Merger Agreement and may not have been intended to be statements of fact but, rather, as a method of allocating risk and governing the contractual rights and relationships among the parties thereto.
