Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On October 27, 2004, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc. (the Company) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) among the Company, certain selling stockholders named therein, and Credit Suisse First Boston LLC (CFSB) and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (Citigroup), as representatives (the Representatives) of the several underwriters named therein (the Underwriters), in connection with the Companys initial public offering.
The Underwriting Agreement provides for, among other things, the sale by the Company of an aggregate of 1,500,000 shares and the sale by certain selling stockholders of an aggregate of 5,982,000 shares to the Underwriters for sale to the public. In addition, certain selling stockholders granted the Underwriters an option to purchase up to 1,122,300 shares to cover over-allotments, if any. The Underwriters exercised this option for the full amount of 1,122,300 shares on November 1, 2004.
The Company and the selling stockholders made certain representations and warranties. The Company agreed that it would not offer, sell or register under the Securities Act shares of its common stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such shares, without the prior written consent of the Representatives for a period of 180 days after October 28, 2004, the date of the final prospectus related to the offering, with certain exceptions specified in the Underwriting Agreement. Similarly, the Companys executive officers and directors and the selling stockholders agreed that they will not, other than as contemplated by the related prospectus, offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge or otherwise dispose of shares of the Companys common stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for any such shares, or enter into a transaction that would have the same effect, or enter into any swap, hedge or other arrangement that transfers, in whole or in part, any of the economic consequences of ownership of the Companys common stock, without, in each case, the prior written consent of the Representatives for a period of 180 days after such date, subject to various exceptions specified in the Underwriting Agreement and relevant lock-up agreements. Under certain circumstances, the expiration of the lock-up period will be extended until the expiration of the 18-day period beginning on the date of announcement of certain developments, as specified in the Underwriting Agreement, unless the Representatives waive such an extension.
The Company and the selling stockholders agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against liabilities under the Securities Act, or contribute to payments that the Underwriters may be required to make in that respect.
A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein. The description of the Underwriting Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by the full text of such exhibit.
