On January 2, 2018, pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of September 25, 2017, between the Company, Folio Dynamics Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“FolioDynamix”), FCD Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), and Actua USA Corporation, a Delaware corporation, solely in its capacity as the representative of the stockholders of FolioDynamix, the Company completed the merger of Merger Sub with and into FolioDynamix, with FolioDynamix continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Acquisition”) and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The completion of the Acquisition on January 2, 2018 followed the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and third party consents.


In connection with the Acquisition, the Company paid $195,000 in cash for all the outstanding shares of FolioDynamix, subject to certain closing and post-closing adjustments. The Company funded the Acquisition price with a combination of cash on the Company’s balance sheet and with borrowings under its revolving credit facility.


FolioDynamix provides financial institutions, registered investment advisors, and other wealth management clients with an end-to-end technology solution paired with a suite of advisory tools including model portfolios, research, and overlay management services.


The acquisition of FolioDynamix added complementary trading tools as well as commission and brokerage support to the Company’s existing suite of offerings. The acquisition also added one RIA. The Company expects to integrate the technology and operations of FolioDynamix into the Company’s wealth management business, enabling the Company to further leverage its operating scale and data analytics capabilities.
