On June 7, 2017, CalAmp Corp. (CalAmp or the Company) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Original Form 8-K) to report an arbitration award decision and subsequent settlement concerning the award. This Amendment No. 1 to Current Report on Form 8-K/A (the Amended Form 8-K) is being filed solely to amend Item 8.01 of the Original Form 8-K to clarify the party responsible for payment of the settlement. Except as described above, this Amended Form 8-K does not modify or update the Original Form 8-K or the disclosures set forth therein or otherwise reflect events occurring after the filing thereof.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
On June 2, 2017, CalAmp Corp. (“CalAmp”) was notified that the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (the “Tribunal”) rendered a decision in arbitration proceedings involving the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries LoJack Corporation and LoJack Equipment Ireland DAC (collectively, “LoJack”) and EVE Energy Co., Ltd. (“EVE”), a former product supplier to LoJack. The Tribunal awarded damages to LoJack (the “Damage Award”) for EVE’s breach of contract.
On June 6, 2017, LoJack reached an agreement in principle with EVE and its controlling shareholder EVE Holdings Limited, as evidenced in a binding memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) between the parties, to resolve the Damage Award by EVE Holdings Limited making payment to LoJack of approximately US$46 million, which amount is net of LoJack’s attorneys’ fees and costs and LoJack’s insurance subrogation payment (the “Settlement”). Pursuant to the MOU, approximately 90% of the Settlement amount is in cash and approximately 10% is in the form of EVE common stock. The cash portion is payable to LoJack in installments on June 20, 2017, October 31, 2017 and February 28, 2018. CalAmp has not yet determined the income tax effects of the Settlement, as it will depend in part on how the award is apportioned between LoJack’s domestic and international operations. The amounts to be realized by LoJack pursuant to the Settlement are expected to be material to CalAmp’s consolidated financial position and results of operations in the periods that the Settlement installments are received and recorded.
LoJack was represented by Ropes & Gray LLP in this matter.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
