Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets, Notice of Delisting o


Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On March 31, 2014, XPO Logistics, Inc. ("XPO") completed the acquisition of Pacer International, Inc., a Tennessee corporation ("Pacer"), pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of January 5, 2014 (the "Merger Agreement"), by and among XPO, Pacer and Acquisition Sub, Inc., a Tennessee corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of XPO ("Merger Sub"). Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into Pacer (the "Merger") with Pacer surviving the Merger as an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of XPO. The Merger was effective at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on March 31, 2014 (the "Effective Time").

At the Effective Time, each share of Pacer's common stock, par value $0.01 per share, issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (i) shares owned by XPO, Merger Sub or any other direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiary of XPO and not, in each case, held on behalf of third parties and (ii) shares owned by any direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Pacer and not, in each case, held on behalf of third parties) was converted into the right to receive (i) $6.00 in cash (the "Per Share Cash Consideration") and
(ii) 0.1017 of a share of XPO Common Stock, which amount is equal to $3.00 divided by the average of the volume-weighted average closing prices of XPO Common Stock for the ten trading days prior to the closing, with such fraction rounded to the nearest 1/10,000 (the "Per Share Stock Consideration," and together with the Per Share Cash Consideration, the "Merger Consideration").

No fractional shares of XPO common stock will be issued in the Merger, and Pacer shareholders who otherwise would have received a fraction of a share of XPO common stock will receive an amount in cash.

As a result of the Merger, XPO will deliver approximately 3,615,342 shares of XPO common stock in aggregate to Pacer shareholders.

This description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is incorporated by reference to Exhibit 2.1.



Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

In connection with the consummation of the Merger, the NASDAQ Stock Market's Global Select Market ("NASDAQ") was notified that each outstanding share of Pacer common stock was converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement. XPO requested that NASDAQ file a notification of removal from listing on Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") with respect to the delisting of Pacer's shares of common stock. Pacer's common stock was delisted and removed from trading on NASDAQ on April 1, 2014.



Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each share of Pacer's common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger (other than (i) shares owned by XPO, Merger Sub or any other direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiary of XPO and not, in each case, held on behalf of third parties and (ii) shares owned by any direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Pacer and not, in each case, held on behalf of third parties) was converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration.

At the Effective Time, holders of Pacer's shares of common stock ceased to have any rights as shareholders of Pacer, other than the right to receive the Merger Consideration.

At the Effective Time, each outstanding option to purchase shares under Pacer's stock plans, vested or unvested, was cancelled and converted in to the right to receive an amount in cash (less applicable taxes required to be withheld) equal to the total number of shares subject to the option immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied


by the excess, if any, of (1) the sum of (a) the Per Share Cash Consideration plus (b) an amount in cash equal to the product of (i) the XPO Reference Stock Price and (ii) the Per Share Stock Consideration (such sum, the "Option Cash Amount"), over (2) the exercise price per share under the stock option. If the exercise price of a Pacer option was greater than or equal to the Option Cash Amount, the option was cancelled for no consideration.

At the Effective Time, each outstanding Pacer common share subject to vesting, repurchase or other lapse restrictions (a "Restricted Share") was, by virtue of the Merger, cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration with respect to each Restricted Share, less applicable taxes required to be withheld (which were withheld from the Per Share Cash Consideration portion of the Merger Consideration).

At the Effective Time, each outstanding restricted stock unit granted under Pacer's stock plans was, by virtue of the Merger, cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration with respect to the restricted stock unit, less applicable taxes required to be withheld (which were withheld from the Per Share Cash Consideration portion of the Merger Consideration).

At the Effective Time, each performance stock unit under Pacer's stock plans, to the extent that they were unvested, vested as follows: for completed performance periods, the portion of the performance stock unit eligible for vesting based on achievement of the applicable performance targets set forth in the applicable award agreement vested, and for performance periods that were not completed as of the Effective Time, the related performance stock units vested as if the target level of performance had been achieved as of the Effective Time. All of such vested performance stock units were, by virtue of the Merger, cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, less applicable taxes required to be withheld with respect to such payment (which was withheld from the Per Share Cash Consideration portion of the Merger Consideration).

The information in Item 2.01 is incorporated by reference herein.



Item 5.01. Changes in Control of Registrant.

As a result of the Merger, a change of control of Pacer occurred on March 31, 2014, on which date Merger Sub was merged with and into Pacer with Pacer surviving the Merger as an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of XPO. At the Effective Time, each share of Pacer common stock was converted into the Merger Consideration.
