On December 11, 2018, The Brink’s Company (the “Company”) issued a press release to announce its entry into an accelerated share repurchase agreement to repurchase an aggregate of $50 million of the Company’s common stock. A copy of the Company's press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
On December 11, 2018, the Company also issued a press release to announce that it has received antitrust approval of its planned acquisition of the Rodoban group of companies in Brazil. A copy of the Company's press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific references in such a filing.
On December 11, 2018, the Company entered into an accelerated share repurchase ("ASR") agreement with Bank of America Merrill Lynch to repurchase an aggregate of $50 million of the Company's common stock. The Company is repurchasing these shares under the authority granted by the Board of Directors in May 2017 to purchase up to an aggregate $200 million of the Company’s common stock, which expires December 31, 2019. Upon completion of the ASR, the Company will have approximately $106 million remaining for share repurchases under this authorization.
Approximately 700,000 shares of the Company's common stock to be repurchased under the ASR will be received by the Company following execution of the ASR. The final number of shares to be repurchased will be based on the average of the daily volume-weighted average prices of the Company's common stock during the term of the transaction, less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms of the ASR agreement, and is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2019. At settlement, under certain circumstances, Bank of America Merrill Lynch may be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to the Company, or, under certain circumstances, the Company may be required to deliver shares of its common stock or may elect to make a cash payment to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The ASR agreement contains customary terms for these types of transactions, including the mechanisms to determine the number of shares or the amount of cash that will be delivered at settlement, the required timing of delivery upon settlement, the specific circumstances under which adjustments may be made to the transactions, the specific circumstances under which the transactions may be cancelled prior to the scheduled maturity and various acknowledgements, representations and warranties made by the Company and Bank of America Merrill Lynch to one another.
Bank of America Merrill Lynch performs normal banking (including as a lender under our credit facilities) and investment banking and advisory services from time to time for the Company and its subsidiaries, for which it receives customary fees and expenses.
