Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 14, 2018, Arcosa Materials, Inc. (“Buyer”), a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Arcosa, Inc. (the “Company”), and Arcosa MS1, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Buyer (“Merger Sub”), entered into a Purchase Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Purchase and Merger Agreement”) with Harrison Gypsum Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“ACG Materials”), H.I.G. - HGC, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“HIG Seller”), and H.I.G. - HGC, LLC, in its capacity as the Representative of the unitholders of ACG Materials. Based in Norman, Oklahoma, ACG Materials (through its operating subsidiaries) mines, mills, processes, and distributes a broad range of specialty materials and aggregates. Its primary products are sold to infrastructure and building products markets, as well as to the agriculture, food, and pharmaceutical industries. ACG Materials’ operating facilities are located in Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Washington, Nevada, and British Columbia.
Pursuant to the Purchase and Merger Agreement, at the closing of the Transaction, Buyer will acquire from HIG Seller all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of H.I.G.-HGC Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“HIG Holdco”) and the holder of a majority of the issued and outstanding membership units of ACG Materials (the “Stock Purchase”), and Merger Sub will merge with and into ACG Materials, with ACG Materials surviving the merger and becoming an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Buyer (the “Merger” and, together with the “Stock Purchase” and all transactions contemplated by the Purchase and Merger Agreement, the “Transaction”), for a cash purchase price of approximately $315 million, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase and Merger Agreement.

The Purchase and Merger Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants. The closing of the Transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, (i) the expiration or termination of applicable waiting periods under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, (ii) the absence of legal restraints preventing the consummation of the acquisition, (iii) the receipt of letters of transmittal executed by the unitholders of ACG Materials that, when combined with the issued and outstanding membership units of ACG Materials owned by HIG Holdco, represent 94.5% of the issued and outstanding Class A Common Units of ACG Materials, and (iv) the issuance of (or binding commitment to issue) a representations and warranties insurance policy issued in the name of Buyer. In connection with the consummation of the Transaction, Buyer intends to purchase an environmental insurance policy insuring against specific environmental conditions at certain ACG Materials locations.

The Purchase and Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for Buyer and ACG Materials, including the right to terminate the Purchase and Merger Agreement if the Transaction has not been consummated by January 15, 2019 (unless a breach of the Purchase and Merger Agreement by the party seeking termination has substantially contributed to the failure of, or has prevented, the consummation of the Transaction by such date).


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
