(the "Buyer"), an Ohio corporation, Texas Coinphone (the "Seller"), a Texas general partnership, and Pete W. Catalena and Dennis H. Goehring, all of the Partners of the Seller (each, a "Partner" together, the "Partners"). WHEREAS, the Seller is engaged in the business of owning and operating microprocessor-based pay telephones (the "Business"); and WHEREAS, the Buyer desires to purchase, and the Seller desires to sell, all of the assets and property owned by the Seller and related to the Business and 5% of the capital stock (the "Shares") of International Communication Solutions, Inc. (collectively, the "Assets"), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein; NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements, covenants, representations and warranties set forth herein, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto agree as follows: ARTICLE I PURCHASE AND SALE OF THE ASSETS; THE CLOSING 1.1 Purchase and Sale ----------------- (a) Upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereof, and in reliance upon the representations, warranties and agreements contained herein, at the Closing (as defined in Section 1.7 hereof) the Seller will sell, assign, transfer and deliver to the Buyer, and the Buyer will accept and purchase from the Seller, free and clear of all Encumbrances, the Assets. The Assets shall not include the name "Texas Coinphone", provided that (i) the Seller and the Partners shall not use the name "Texas Coinphone" (or any confusingly similar name) in connection with any pay telephone business and (ii) the Buyer shall be entitled to use the name "Texas Coinphone" for a reasonable transition period. (b) INSTRUMENTS OF CONVEYANCE. To effectuate the sale, assignment, transfer and conveyance contemplated by this Article I, the Seller will execute and deliver to the Buyer at the Closing (i) all bills of sale (including a bill of sale in the form of Exhibit A hereto), deeds, documents or instruments of sale, assignment, transfer or conveyance (collectively, the "Bills of Sale"), as the Buyer shall reasonably deem necessary or appropriate to vest in the Buyer good, valid and marketable title to all of the Assets, (ii) a valid assignment of all of the Seller's right, title and interest in all of the Assets which are contracts, leases or licenses and (iii) one or more stock certificates for the Shares, in each case free and clear of any Encumbrances, including assistance in the transfer of any required consents and Permits from municipalities. (c) LIABILITIES ASSUMED OR NOT ASSUMED BY THE BUYER. In connection with the purchase of Assets, this Agreement or otherwise, the Buyer shall not assume or in any manner be or become responsible for any Liabilities of the Seller or its affiliates except those Liabilities set forth on Exhibit B hereto (the "Assumed Liabilities"). Without limiting the foregoing, the Buyer shall not be liable for any and all liabilities and obligations, direct and indirect, fixed or contingent, for (i) Taxes payable with respect to the sale of the Assets by the Seller to the Buyer, (ii) Taxes attributable to or incurred in connection with the Assets prior to or on the Closing Date, (iii) Taxes of the Seller or the Partners for any Taxable Period, or (iv) any claims or legal actions against the Seller relating to matters prior to Closing. 1.2 Consideration ------------- (a) Upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereof, in reliance upon the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of the Seller and the Partners contained herein, the Buyer will deliver to the Seller an amount equal to the product of $3,050 and the number of the Seller Phones as of the Closing Date, minus $550 for each of the Seller Phones acquired from Amtel Communications, Inc. or its affiliates, subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 1.4 hereof (the "Consideration"). (b) The foregoing payment shall constitute the full purchase price for the Assets. Any portion of the Escrow Amount (as defined herein) paid to the Buyer shall be deemed a reduction in the purchase price required to be paid by the Buyer for the Assets. 1.3 Closing Payment. --------------- (a) Not later than three business days prior to the Closing, the Seller shall deliver to the Buyer a good faith estimate of the adjustments to the Consideration required by Section 1.4 hereof, as of the Closing Date, including all the detail required by Section 1.4 hereof. (b) At the Closing, the Buyer shall pay to the Seller by wire transfer or certified check an amount equal to the Consideration which would be payable if adjusted pursuant to Section 1.4 (using the good faith estimate delivered pursuant to paragraph (a) above); provided that such amount shall be reduced by the Escrow Amount. 1.4 Consideration Adjustments. ------------------------- (a) THE SELLER PHONES. The Consideration shall be adjusted to reflect the actual number of Seller Phones as of the Closing Date. In addition, the Consideration shall be further adjusted by the following calculations: (b) RECEIVABLES AND PAYABLES. The Consideration shall be increased by the excess of (A) all receivables as of the Closing Date actually collected by the Buyer, including receivables for dial around compensation, over (B) the amount of all site commissions and other accounts payable accrued or payable in respect of all periods ending prior to the Closing Date. In the event the amount specified in clause (B) above exceeds the amount in clause (A) above, the Consideration shall be decreased by the amount of such excess. (c) AVERAGE TERM. If at the Closing Date the Average Term is less than 34 months, then the Consideration (as adjusted pursuant to Sections 1.4(a) and (b)) shall be further adjusted by multiplying it by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Average Term and the denominator of which is 34. (d) AVERAGE INCOME. If the Average Income is less than $90 per phone then the Consideration shall be reduced by multiplying (A) the amount calculated pursuant to Section 1.2(a) (as adjusted by Section 1.4(a), (b) and (c) by (B) a fraction, the numerator of which will be the Average Income and the denominator of which will be 90. (e) LIABILITIES. The Consideration shall be decreased by the amount of any Liabilities of the Seller assumed by the Buyer as of the Closing. 1.5 Adjustment Schedule. ------------------- (a) As soon as practicable after the Closing Date (but in any event not more than 90 days after the Closing Date), the Buyer shall cause to be prepared and delivered to the Seller and the Escrow Agent a schedule (the "Adjustment Schedule") which shows, as of the Closing Date, the calculation of the Consideration as provided in Section 1.2(a) and as adjusted pursuant to Section 1.4. (b) Upon receipt of the Adjustment Schedule, the Seller shall have the right during the succeeding 10-day period to examine the Adjustment Schedule and all records used to prepare such Adjustment Schedule. The Seller shall notify the Buyer in writing, on or before the last day of the 10-day period, of any good faith objections to the Adjustment Schedule, setting forth a reasonably specific description of such objections and the dollar amount of each objection. (c) If the Seller in good faith objects to the Adjustment Schedule, the Seller and the Buyer shall attempt to resolve any such objections within 10 days of Buyer's receipt of such objections. If the Buyer and the Seller are unable to resolve the matter within such 10-day period, they shall jointly appoint a mutually acceptable firm of independent certified public accountants (or, if they cannot agree on a mutually acceptable firm, they shall cause their respective accounting firms to select such firm) within five days after the end of such 10-day period. The fees of such independent certified public accountants shall be divided equally between the Buyer and the Seller. Such firm's resolution of the dispute shall be conclusive and binding upon the Seller and the Buyer. (d) The Adjustment Schedule shall be deemed complete upon the earlier of (i) the eleventh (11th) day after the Buyer's delivery of the Adjustment Schedule to the Seller, unless prior to such day the Seller shall have notified the Buyer of an objection in accordance with Section 1.5(b), and (ii) the resolution of all objections, pursuant to Section 1.5(c). Within two business days following completion of the Adjustment Schedule as aforesaid, either (A) The Buyer shall pay the Seller the amount, if any, by which the Consideration (as adjusted) exceeds the amount paid pursuant to Section 1.3(b); or (B) The Seller (or the Partners, Pro Rata) shall pay to the Buyer the amount, if any, by which the amount paid pursuant to Section 1.3(b) exceeds the Consideration (as adjusted). All payments pursuant to this Section 1.5(d) shall be made by wire transfer or certified check. 1.6 Escrow. ------ (a) Simultaneously herewith, the Buyer, the Seller, the Partners and West, Webb, Allbritton & Gentry, P.C., as escrow agent (the "Escrow Agent") are entering into an Escrow Agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, and the Buyer is depositing $150,000 (as may be increased by paragraph (b) below, the "Escrow Amount") with the Escrow Agent, to be held and disposed of by the Escrow Agent pursuant to the Escrow Agreement. In the event the Closing does not occur due to a material breach of this Agreement by the Buyer, the Seller shall be entitled to receive the entire Escrow Amount, as liquidated damages, and the Seller and the Partners shall have no other rights or remedies in respect of this Agreement. (b) At the Closing, the Buyer shall deposit an additional $180,000 with the Escrow Agent, which shall become part of the Escrow Amount. (c) Delivery of funds by the Escrow Agent to the applicable parties shall be pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement. 1.7 THE CLOSING. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions contained in this Agreement, the Closing of the transactions contemplated hereby (the "Closing") will take place at the offices of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, 919 Third Avenue, New York, New York (or such other place as the Buyer and the Seller may agree), simultaneously with the execution of the other agreements, documents, instruments and writings to be executed and delivered pursuant hereto or in connection herewith (collectively, the "Other Documents"), on a date mutually agreeable to all parties, but no later than January 15, 1997 (the "Closing Date"); PROVIDED, that at the written request of the Buyer, the Seller shall extend the latest date of Closing until February 15, 1997, during which time no penalties shall attach to the Buyer and during which time all provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
