ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This report and the exhibits hereto are not a proxy statement or solicitation of a proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any securities or in respect of the proposed transaction and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities of andina or THE COMPANY, nor shall there be any sale of any such securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction.

 

This report and the exhibits hereto include “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. COMPANY’s actual results may differ from its expectations, estimates and projections and, consequently, you should not rely on these forward looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as “expect,” “estimate,” “project,” “budget,” “forecast,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “believes,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, andina’s and THE COMPANY’s expectations with respect to future performance, anticipated financial impacts of the merger and related transactions; approval of the merger and related transactions by security holders; the satisfaction of the closing conditions to the merger and related transactions; and the timing of the completion of the merger and related transactions.

 

These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside the parties’ control and difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include: business conditions; weather and natural disasters; changing interpretations of GAAP; outcomes of government reviews; inquiries and investigations and related litigation; continued compliance with government regulations; legislation or regulatory environments, requirements or changes adversely affecting the business in which THE COMPANY is engaged; fluctuations in customer demand; management of rapid growth; intensity of competition from other providers of SERVICES THAT THE COMPANY PROVIDES; general economic conditions; and geopolitical events and regulatory changes. Other factors include the possibility that the merger does not close, including due to the failure to receive required security holder approvals, or the failure of other closing conditions.

 

The foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. Additional information concerning these and other risk factors is contained in ANDINA’s most recent filings with the SEC. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning ANDINA and THE COMPANY, the merger, the related transactions or other matters and attributable to andina and THE COMPANY or any person acting on their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements above. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Neither ANDINA nor THE COMPANY undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statement to reflect any change in their expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed as an amendment (“Amendment No. 1”) to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Andina Acquisition Corporation (“Andina”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 22, 2013 (the “Original Filing”).

 

The purpose of this Amendment No. 1 is to correct the share price target for the fiscal year ending 2/29/16 referred to in Item 1.01 of the Original Filing under the heading “Merger Consideration – Earnout Shares,” which mistakenly indicated $14.00 per share instead of $15.00 per share, and to file a revised investor presentation referred to in Item 1.01 of the Original Filing under the heading “Investor Presentation.”

 

Item 1.01 and 9.01 of the Original Filing are accordingly being amended and restated in their entirety below. No other changes are being made to the Original Filing and all information speaks as of the date of the Original Filing.

 

Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

General; Structure of Merger

 

On August 17, 2013, Andina Acquisition Corporation, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Andina”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among Andina, Andina Merger Sub, Inc., a Cayman Islands exempted company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Andina (“Merger Sub”), Tecnoglass S.A., a Colombian company (“Tecnoglass”), and C.I. Energia Solar S.A. E.S. Windows, a Colombian company (“ES”). Prior to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, Tecnoglass and ES will effect a corporate reorganization such that the shareholders of Tecnoglass and/or ES shall cease being shareholders of Tecnoglass and/or ES and shall become shareholders of a newly formed Cayman Islands exempted company. Tecnoglass and ES will each then become direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of such newly formed entity. References to the “Company” in this Form 8-K are references to this newly formed entity, including the operations of Tecnoglass and ES, as applicable. Upon the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company, with the Company surviving the merger and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Andina. Upon the consummation of the merger contemplated by the Merger Agreement, Andina will change its name to “Tecnoglass Inc.”

 

The Company is a leading manufacturer of hi-spec, architectural glass and windows for the western hemisphere residential and commercial construction industries. Headquartered in Barranquilla, Colombia, the Company operates out of a 1.2 million square foot vertically-integrated, state-of-the-art manufacturing complex that provides easy access to the Americas, the Caribbean, and the Pacific. The Company exports 43% of its production to foreign countries and sells to more than 300 customers in North, Central and South America. The United States accounted for approximately 30% of its revenues in 2012. The Company’s tailored, high-end products are found on some of the world’s most distinctive properties, including the El Dorado Airport (Bogota), Imbanaco Medical Center (Cali), Trump Plaza (Panama), Trump Tower (Miami), and The Woodlands (Houston).

 

The merger is expected to be consummated after the required approval by the shareholders of Andina and the fulfillment of certain other conditions, as described herein and in the Merger Agreement.

 

The following summaries of the merger and related transactions, the Merger Agreement and the other agreements to be entered into by the parties are qualified in their entirety by reference to the text of the agreements, certain of which are attached as exhibits hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.

 

Merger Consideration

 

Closing Merger Consideration. The Company shareholders, in exchange for all of the ordinary shares of Company outstanding immediately prior to the merger, will receive from Andina:

 

·An aggregate of 17,525,000 ordinary shares of Andina, subject to adjustment upon certain events; and
·an aggregate of 3,000,000 ordinary shares (the “Earnout Shares”) to be released upon the achievement of certain targets described below.

 

4
 

 

Earnout Shares. The Earnout Shares have been issued and placed in escrow to be released to the Company shareholders upon the Company’s achievement of specified share price targets or targets based on the Company’s net earnings before interest income or expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and any expenses arising solely from the merger charged to income (“EBITDA”) in the fiscal years ending February 28, 2014, February 28, 2015 or February 29, 2016.

 

The following table sets forth the targets and the number of Earnout Shares issuable to Company shareholders upon the achievement of such targets:

 

   Ordinary Share
Price Target
  EBITDA Target   Number of Earnout Shares 
      Minimum   Maximum   Minimum   Maximum 
Fiscal year ending 2/28/14  $12.00 per share  $30,000,000   $36,000,000    416,667    500,000 
Fiscal year ending 2/28/15  $13.00 per share  $35,000,000   $40,000,000    875,000    1,000,000 
Fiscal year ending 2/29/16  $15.00 per share  $40,000,000   $45,000,000    1,333,333    1,500,000 

 

If either the ordinary share target or the maximum EBITDA target is met in any fiscal year, Company shareholders receive the maximum number of Earnout Shares indicated for the year.

 

In the event the ordinary share target is not met but the combined company’s EBITDA falls within the minimum and maximum EBITDA target for a specified year, the number of Earnout Shares to be issued will be interpolated between such targets.

 

In the event neither the ordinary share target nor the minimum EBITDA target is met in a particular year, but a subsequent year’s share price or EBITDA target is met, the Company shareholders will earn the Earnout Shares for the previous year as if the prior year’s target had been met.

 

Lock-Up

 

The shareholders of the Company will not be able to sell any of the ordinary shares of Andina that they receive for one year after the closing, subject to certain exceptions.

 

Registration Rights

 

The Company shareholders will be granted the right to demand that Andina register for resale under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), all of the ordinary shares of Andina to be issued to them in the transaction following the closing. In addition, such shareholders will be granted certain “piggyback” registration rights with respect to such shares.

Indemnification of Andina and Company Shareholders

 

Andina and the Company shareholders have agreed to indemnify and hold harmless the other for their inaccuracies or breaches of the representations and warranties or for the non-fulfillment or breach of any covenant or agreement contained in the Merger Agreement and for certain other matters.

 

To provide a fund for payment to Andina with respect to its post-closing rights to indemnification under the Merger Agreement, there will be placed in escrow (with an independent escrow agent) an aggregate of 890,000 of the ordinary shares issuable to the Company shareholders at closing (“Indemnity Escrow Fund”). The escrow will be the sole remedy for Andina for its rights to indemnification under the Merger Agreement. On the date that is the earlier of (i) 30 days after the date on which Andina has filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ending February 28, 2015 or (ii) June 30, 2015, the shares remaining in the Indemnity Escrow Fund will be released to the Company holders except for any shares subject to pending claims and certain other matters.

 

No amount for indemnification shall be payable to either Andina on the one hand or the Company’s shareholders on the other unless and until the aggregate amount of all indemnifiable losses otherwise payable exceed a set deductible amount. The aggregate liability for losses of Andina on the one hand or the Company’s shareholders on the other shall not in any event exceed the value of the Escrow Fund. Andina shall have no claim for indemnity against the Company’s shareholders other than for any of the shares placed in escrow and the Company’s shareholders shall have no claim for indemnity against Andina other than for the issuance of additional ordinary shares of Andina.

 

Representations and Warranties

 

The Merger Agreement contains representations and warranties of the Company, Andina and Merger Sub relating to, among other things, (a) proper organization and similar corporate matters, (b) capital structure of each constituent company, (c) the authorization, performance and enforceability of the Merger Agreement, (d) licenses and permits, (e) taxes, (f) financial information and absence of undisclosed liabilities, (g) holding of leases and ownership of real property and other properties, including intellectual property, (h) accounts receivable, (i) contracts, (j) title to, and condition of, properties and environmental condition thereof, (k) absence of certain changes, (l) employee matters, (m) compliance with laws, (n) litigation and (o) regulatory matters.

If the maximum number of Public Shares are converted into cash as permitted by Andina’s Charter Documents, such percentages will be approximately 91.9% and 8.1%, respectively. The foregoing does not take into account shares that would be released to the Company’s shareholders upon achievement of the Earnout Targets.

 

At the closing of the merger, subject to shareholder approval, Andina will create a share option plan for the benefit of employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, and shall allocate to the share option plan for issuance thereunder the number of shares equal to six percent (6%) of the ordinary shares outstanding immediately after the closing of the merger.
