Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure, Othe


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 2, 2014, Tyco International Ltd. ("Tyco"), together with its wholly-owned subsidiary Tyco Far East Holdings Ltd., an Irish incorporated company tax resident in the Netherlands ("Seller"), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Stock Purchase Agreement") with Siren Investment, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company ("Purchaser"). Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, Seller will sell, and Purchaser will acquire, 100% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Tyco Fire & Security Services Korea Co., Ltd., a Korean company (the "Company"), for a purchase price of U.S.$ 1,930,000,000 (the "Purchase Price") at the Closing (the "Closing"). The Purchase Price is subject to customary adjustments as described in the Stock Purchase Agreement.

The consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Stock Purchase Agreement is subject to certain customary conditions, including, among others:
(i) the accuracy of representations and warranties; (ii) compliance with agreements and covenants; and (iii) the receipt of regulatory approvals, including those pursuant to the Korean Monopoly Regulation and Fair Trade Act.

The Stock Purchase Agreement contains termination rights for each of Seller and Purchaser, including the right to terminate if the transactions contemplated by the Stock Purchase Agreement have not been completed by September 2, 2014 (the "Outside Date"), unless the party seeking to terminate has breached the Stock Purchase Agreement and such breach is the primary cause of the failure of the Closing to occur by the Outside Date. The Stock Purchase Agreement also provides that Purchaser will pay Seller a termination fee of U.S.$ 96,500,000 if the Stock Purchase Agreement is terminated because: (i) Purchaser breaches or fails to perform any of its representations, warranties or covenants, and such breach or failure to perform (A) would give rise to the failure of a closing condition, (B) cannot be or has not been cured upon 30 days' notice (or if earlier by the Outside Date) and (C) has not been waived by Seller; or (ii) Purchaser's applicable closing conditions have been satisfied (or are capable of being satisfied at the Closing were the Closing to occur on the date of termination) and Purchaser has failed to complete the Closing within 2 business days after the date on which the Closing should have occurred. Under the Stock Purchase Agreement, Closing will occur on (i) the date that is the later of (A) May 31, 2014 and (B) three business days after satisfaction or waiver of the closing conditions (excluding conditions that, by their terms, cannot be satisfied until the Closing but subject to the satisfaction or waiver of those conditions), or
(ii) such other date as Seller and Purchaser may mutually agree.

The Stock Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of Seller and Purchaser. From the date of the Stock Purchase Agreement until the Closing, the Company is required to conduct its business in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practices and to comply with certain covenants regarding the operation of its business. Subject to certain limitations, Seller and Purchaser are also obligated to indemnify each other for breaches of representations, warranties and covenants made in the Stock Purchase Agreement, taxes and certain other matters. Tyco guarantees all obligations of Seller under the Stock Purchase Agreement. Such guarantee will expire seven years from the Closing and Tyco's liability is capped at the purchase price.

Buyer has obtained equity and debt financing commitments to fund the transactions and associated expenses, which are subject to customary conditions. The Closing is not conditioned on the receipt of debt financing by Purchaser.

The foregoing description of the Stock Purchase Agreement, and the transactions contemplated thereby, is included to provide you with information regarding its terms. It does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1, and incorporated herein by reference.
