Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 19, 2013, Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (“Parent”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Altisource Solutions S.à r.l., entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which Altisource Solutions S.à r.l. (the “Purchaser”) agreed to purchase from Christopher L. Saitta, Mark A. McKinley and various trusts created by and for the benefit of Saitta’s and McKinley’s families (collectively, the “Sellers”), all of the outstanding limited liability company interests of Equator, LLC, a California limited liability company (“Equator”).  The aggregate consideration payable by the Purchaser under the Purchase Agreement is up to $150,000,000, comprised of (i) $70,000,000 in base consideration and (ii) up to an additional $80,000,000 in potential additional consideration, the payment of which is dependent upon the Equator business meeting targeted levels of Adjusted EBITA (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) for three consecutive 12-month periods following closing.  The Purchaser may, in its discretion, pay up to 20% of the base consideration and up to 20% of each payment of any additional consideration in shares of Parent restricted stock, with the balance to be paid in cash (the foregoing is referred to herein as the “Transaction”).


The Transaction is expected to close within 30 days of signing and is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing terms and conditions, including without limitation, the absence of any change that has a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or results of operations of Equator and its business, taken as a whole.  Moreover, each party’s obligation to consummate the Transaction is subject to certain other conditions, including without limitation (i) the accuracy of the other party’s representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement, subject to specified materiality standards and (ii) the other party’s material compliance with its covenants and obligations contained in the Purchase Agreement. Consummation of the Transaction is not subject to a financing condition.  The purchase price is subject to certain adjustments based on targeted amounts of current assets and current liabilities of Equator at closing, to be settled within 90 days of the closing date.


The Purchase Agreement contains customary termination rights, including without limitation the right of either the Purchaser or the Sellers to terminate the Purchase Agreement (i) if the Transaction is not consummated by December 31, 2013 or (ii) in the event of a material, uncured breach by the other party of any provision of the Purchase Agreement, subject to certain conditions.


This description of the Purchase Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the entire Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
