What is a Backstop Agreement?

A backstop agreement is a form of financial protection that can be included in many business agreements. If one party fails to meet its obligations, the backstop agreement will ensure that there is still enough money or assets to fulfill all other aspects of the deal.

A backstop agreement is an excellent way for businesses and individuals to protect themselves against unforeseen events and unforeseen circumstances when entering into contracts. For example, if an individual agrees to buy a house from someone but then falls behind on payments, the purchaser may not have enough money left over after paying their mortgage lender to pay for upkeep and any needed repairs on the property they purchased. A backstop agreement would allow them to sell off some part of their home to make that money available.

Common Sections in Backstop Agreements

Below is a list of common sections included in Backstop Agreements. These sections are linked to the below sample agreement for you to explore.

Backstop Agreement Sample

Exhibit 1

BACKSTOP AGREEMENT

This Backstop Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made as of August 16, 2006 by and between J. L. Halsey Corporation (the “Company”) and LDN Stuyvie Partnership (“LDN”). Except as otherwise indicated herein, capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section 8 hereof.

WHEREAS, the Company has determined to conduct a rights offering (the “Rights Offering”) to allow its stockholders (as of a record date to be determined) the right to purchase that number of shares (or fraction of a share, as the case may be) of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), to be set forth in a registration statement to be filed by the Company with the Commission (the “Registration Statement”) for each share of Common Stock that each stockholder of the Company owns as of the record date established for the Rights Offering (each a “Right” and, collectively, the “Rights”), at a price of $0.85 per share (the “Subscription Price”);

WHEREAS, LDN has committed (the “Backstop Commitment”) to purchase such number of shares of Company Common Stock so that, together with all Rights subscribed for and exercised in the Rights Offering (including any Rights subscribed for by LDN), the Company will receive gross proceeds (including offsets of principal amount of the Promissory Note, as hereinafter defined, as set forth in Section 2) in the Rights Offering of at least $10,000,000 (the “Backstop Amount”) at the Subscription Price (it being understood that other stockholders of the Company will not be offered the right to purchase Common Stock in respect of any Rights that go unsubscribed in the Rights Offering); and

WHEREAS, in consideration of LDN’s agreeing to provide the Backstop Commitment, the Company has agreed to grant LDN the option (the “Option”) to purchase an additional number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of shares of Common Stock purchasable pursuant to any Rights that remain unsubscribed for in the Rights Offering after LDN has fulfilled its Backstop Commitment (the “Option Amount”) at the Subscription Price (it being understood that other stockholders of the Company will not be offered the right to purchase Common Stock in respect of any Rights that go unsubscribed in the Rights Offering).

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

Section 1. Material Terms; Backstop; and Option.

(a) Material Terms of the Rights Offering. The material terms of the Rights Offering shall be as set forth on Exhibit A hereto. The Company shall not alter the terms of the Rights Offering set forth on Exhibit A hereto without the prior consent of LDN.

(b) Backstop. Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, in connection with the Rights Offering, the Company hereby offers LDN the right to purchase that number of shares of Company Common Stock having an aggregate value equal to the Backstop Amount at a price per share equal to the Subscription Price. As soon as reasonably practicable following the expiration date of the Rights Offering as


set forth in the Registration Statement (the “Expiration Date”), the Company and the subscription agent for the Rights Offering shall determine the Backstop Amount and provide notice thereof to LDN (the “Notice Date”). At the Closing (as hereinafter defined), LDN hereby agrees to purchase that number of shares of Company Common Stock having an aggregate value equal to the Backstop Amount at a price per share equal to the Subscription Price (it being understood that other stockholders of the Company will not be offered the right to purchase Common Stock in respect of any Rights that go unsubscribed in the Rights Offering).

(c) Option. Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, the Company hereby grants LDN the right, in connection with the Rights Offering, to purchase up to that number of shares of Company Common Stock having an aggregate value equal to the Option Amount at a price per share equal to the Subscription Price. As soon as reasonably practicable following the Expiration Date, the Company and the subscription agent for the Rights Offering shall determine the Option Amount. On the Notice Date, the Company shall provide notice of the Option Amount to LDN. If LDN determines to exercise the Option, it shall give the Company written notice (the “LDN Notice”) of such exercise (including the number of shares of Company Common Stock within the Option Amount that LDN elects to purchase) within two business days after receipt by LDN of notice of the Option Amount (the “Option Expiration Date”). The number of shares of Company Common Stock that LDN elects to purchase pursuant to the LDN Notice is hereinafter referred to as the “LDN Option Amount.” At the Closing, LDN agrees to purchase that number of shares of Company Common Stock equal to the LDN Option Amount at a price per share equal to the Subscription Price (it being understood that other stockholders of the Company will not be offered the right to purchase Common Stock in respect of any Rights that go unexercised in the Rights Offering).

Section 2. The Closing. LDN’s subscription for the Backstop Amount, if applicable, and the LDN Option Amount, if applicable, hereunder shall take place as soon as reasonably practicable following the Option Expiration Date at a place mutually agreeable to the Company and LDN (the “Closing”). At the Closing, the Company shall deliver to LDN the certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock subscribed for pursuant to Section 1, and LDN shall deliver to the Company the Promissory Note, the principal amount of which shall be offset by the amount of the Subscription Price multiplied by the sum of the LDN Option Amount and the number of shares of Company Common Stock included in the Backstop Amount (such aggregate amount is referred to herein as the “Total Price”), with any remainder of the amount of the Total Price above the principal amount of the Promissory Note being paid by LDN by delivering to the Company a cashier’s check or wire transfer of immediately available funds to a bank designated by the Company. In the event that the Total Price is less than the outstanding principal amount of the Promissory Note and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon, at the Closing the Company shall pay such remaining balance in cash or additional shares of Company Common Stock (as provided in the Promissory Note) and cancel the Promissory Note.
