Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On March 17, 2022, Travelzoo, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), as Buyer, entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”) with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Azzurro Capital Inc., Metaverse Travel Experiences, Inc. (formerly Azzurro Brands Inc.), a New York corporation (the “Seller”). Azzurro Capital Inc. is the Company’s largest shareholder.

Pursuant to the APA, the Company acquired certain assets, primarily comprised of all U.S. members of Secret Escapes Limited, which Seller acquired in March of 2021 and exclusively licensed to Travelzoo pursuant to the previously disclosed License Agreement, dated as of March 12, 2021 (the “License Agreement”), in accordance with data privacy and other applicable laws. The License Agreement allowed the Company to utilize the assets in exchange for a license fee of $412,500 per quarter with a one-year term that automatically renewed. The License Agreement was reviewed and unanimously approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, which consists solely of independent directors (the “Committee”).

The purchase price for the transaction was $1.75M, with $600,000 payable in cash upon closing and the remaining $1.15M payable in the form of a credit with Seller in exchange for waived pre-paid license fees through Q3 2022 under the License Agreement. The remaining payment obligations of the Company under the License Agreement for the then-current term (equal to $825,000) were eliminated.

The APA contains customary representations and warranties for transactions of this type, including but not limited to representations and warranties made by the Company and Seller.

The APA was reviewed and unanimously approved by the Committee.

The Company expects this transaction to result in lower operating expenses for the Company going forward.

The information set forth above relating to the APA is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Form 8-K, and which is incorporated by reference herein.

    THIS ASSET PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), by and between Metaverse Travel Experiences, Inc. (f/k/a Azzurro Brands Inc.), a New York corporation (“Seller”), and Travelzoo, a Delaware corporation (“Buyer”), is dated as of March 17, 2022.

    WHEREAS, on March 12, 2021, Seller entered into that certain Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”), by and between Seller and Secret Escapes Limited, a limited company organized under the laws of England (“Secret Escapes”), whereby Seller purchased certain assets, including but not limited to the Database (as such term is defined in the APA);

WHEREAS, Buyer now desires to acquire such assets from Seller and Seller desires to transfer such assets.

    NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual covenants contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1.SALE AND PURCHASE OF ASSETS AND ASSUMPTION OF LIABILITIES
1.1Assets. Upon the terms hereinafter set forth, at the Closing (as defined below), Seller hereby sells, conveys, assigns, transfers and delivers to Buyer, and Buyer hereby purchases and acquires from Seller, free and clear of any pledge, security interest, lien, reservation, exception, covenant, condition, restriction, lease or other similar title exception or encumbrance (a “Lien”), all right, title and interest of Seller in and to the following assets (the “Acquired Assets” or “Database”), effective January 1, 2022 (the “Ownership Transfer Date”):
a.Seller’s entire database of Personal Data acquired by Seller pursuant to the APA, which includes, but is not limited to, Personal Data (i) collected from users that registered to the website provided by Secret Escapes via the domain us.secretescapes.com or (ii) that was acquired by Secret Escapes through paid advertising campaigns in the United States or from third parties, including, without limitation, the following information to the extent contained in the Database: (A) name; (B) email address, (C) physical address (including zip code), (D) phone number, (E) sign-up date, (F) sign-up channel, (G) user activity, and (H) subscription information (e.g. preference for daily or weekly); and
b.with respect to the Database, documentation pertaining to opt-ins, data access requests, opt-outs, data processing choices and requests with respect to such individual’s data, and all information pertaining to how Secret Escapes responded to all such requests and actions taken by Secret Escapes and/or Seller with respect thereto.
1.2Liabilities. On the terms set forth in this Agreement, on and as of the Closing, Buyer hereby assumes and agrees to pay, perform and discharge all of the liabilities that arise from and after the Closing Date (as defined below) relating to the Acquired Assets and the actions or inactions of Buyer with respect thereto (the “Assumed Liabilities”). Buyer hereby agrees to be responsible for all Assumed Liabilities, and as hereinafter set forth, indemnify Seller from all Assumed Liabilities. Buyer shall not assume and in no event be liable for any liabilities incurred prior to, or proximately resulting from actions or inactions of Seller prior to, the Closing, whether absolute, contingent, accrued, known or unknown or any tax liability relating to the Acquired Assets with respect to taxable periods (or portions thereof) ending on or prior to the Closing (such liabilities, the “Excluded Liabilities”). Except for the Assumed Liabilities, Buyer is not assuming, or agreeing to otherwise become liable for, any liabilities of any nature of Seller. Seller hereby agrees to be responsible for all Excluded Liabilities, and as hereinafter set forth, indemnify Buyer from all Excluded Liabilities.     



2.PURCHASE PRICE
2.1Purchase Price. The purchase price to be paid by Buyer in full consideration for the Acquired Assets shall be ONE MILLION SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND ($1,750,000) (such amount, the “Purchase Price”), with (a) SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND ($600,000) payable in cash on the Closing Date (the “Cash Payment”) and (b) ONE MILLION ONE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND ($1,150,000) payable in the form of a credit with Seller for Buyer in exchange for the Waived License Fees, pursuant to the terms hereof (the “Credit”).

Any amounts so deducted and withheld will be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the person in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Buyer determines that any deduction or withholding is required by law, Buyer shall give Seller at least five (5) business days’ written notice before deducting or withholding. Buyer shall reasonably cooperate with Seller to minimize the amounts to be deducted or withheld.
