If FNF’s average common stock price at closing is greater than $24.215, the exchange ratio remains fixed at 0.65224 per share of FNF common stock and LPS stockholders will receive the benefit of any price appreciation on the FNF common stock portion of the purchase consideration.
If FNF’s average common stock price at closing is between $20.00 and $24.215 per share, FNF will increase the number of shares of FNF common stock to be received by LPS stockholders such that LPS stockholders receive a minimum of $15.794 per share in value on the stock portion of the consideration, or $32.419 per share in total.
If FNF’s average common stock price at closing is less than $20.00, the exchange ratio will be fixed at 0.7897 per share of FNF common stock, in which event LPS will have a right to terminate the transaction.
Additionally, on or before three trading days prior to the anticipated date of effectiveness of FNF’s registration statement on Form S-4, FNF has the option to increase the cash portion of the consideration from $16.625 per share of LPS common stock up to $33.25 per share of LPS common stock with a corresponding decrease in the stock portion of the merger consideration as provided for under the terms of the merger agreement, in which case the exchange ratio will be adjusted to reflect the new consideration mix.
