Item 1.01         Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
BasX Acquisition

On December 10, 2021, AAON, Inc. (the “Company”) completed the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding equity ownership interests of BasX, LLC, an Oregon limited liability company doing business as BasX Solutions (“BasX”), for a purchase price of (i) $100 million payable in cash, and (ii) up to $80 million in the aggregate of contingent consideration payable in shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.004 per share (the “Shares”). The potential future issuance of the Shares is contingent upon BasX meeting certain post-closing earn-out milestones during each of 2021, 2022 and 2023. The Company funded the BasX acquisition cash portion of the purchase price and related transaction costs with cash on hand and borrowings under its Amended and Restated Loan Agreement (entered into on November 24, 2021).

Additionally, as a condition to closing, the Company entered into a real estate purchase agreement with BasX Properties, LLC, an affiliate of BasX, to acquire the principal real property and improvements utilized by BasX for an additional $22 million, subject to customary closing conditions and adjustments. The Company expects this real estate transaction to close by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Item 3.02        Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

The disclosure set forth in Item 1.01 is incorporated into this Item 3.02 by reference. The Company intends to issue the Shares, when and to the extent earned, in reliance on the exemption from registration requirements under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) thereof and rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The Company will rely upon representations, warranties, certifications and agreements of the Seller Parties and certain others in support of the satisfaction of the conditions contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

Item 7.01     Regulation FD Disclosure.

On December 13, 2021, the Company issued a press release, filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, announcing the completion of the BasX acquisition. The press release is incorporated by reference in this Current Report on Form 8-K.

All statements in the press release and the BasX Presentation, incorporated by reference in the press release, other than historical financial information, may be deemed “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “seeks”, “estimates”, “should”, “will”, and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. Investors and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made. The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements contained in the BasX Presentation, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Important factors that could cause results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not necessarily limited to (1) the timing and extent of changes in raw material and component prices, (2) the effects of fluctuations in the commercial/industrial new construction market, (3) the timing and extent of changes in interest rates, as well as other competitive factors during the year, and (4) general economic, market or business conditions.

In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits attached hereto are deemed to be “furnished” and shall not be deemed "filed" for the purpose of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information and exhibits be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing.
