Note 15. Subsequent Events:
On July 1, 2016 Bio-Techne acquired Space Import-Export Srl (Space) of Milan, Italy for approximately $11 million. Space is a long and trusted partner of Bio-Techne, distributing its products since 1985 and creating a very effective and visible presence in the Italian market. Space’s Mr. Luca Cicchetti, will remain with Bio-Techne as Managing Director and lead the Company’s southern European commercial operations.
On August 1, 2016, Bio-Techne closed on the acquisition of Advanced Cell Diagnostics (ACD) for $250 million in cash plus contingent consideration of $75 million due upon the achievement of certain milestones. The transaction was financed through a combination of cash on hand and a revolving line of credit facility that Bio-Techne obtained prior to the closing of the acquisition.
In connection with the acquisition of Advanced Cell Diagnostics on August 1, 2016, the Company entered into a new revolving credit facility, governed by a Credit Agreement dated July 28, 2016. The Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility of $400 million. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a variable rate. As of August 26, 2016, the Company had drawn $250 million under the Credit Agreement.
