Introductory Notes

On July 23, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 14, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Electronics for Imaging, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“EFI” or the “Company”), East Private Holdings II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Parent”), and East Private Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”), and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent, Merger Sub was merged with and into EFI (the “Merger”), with EFI surviving the Merger (the “Surviving Company”) as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

The events described in this Current Report on Form 8-K took place in connection with the completion of the Merger.

Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

The information set forth in the Introductory Note of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

The Merger became effective on July 23, 2019, when the certificate of merger of EFI and Merger Sub was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Effective Time”). At the Effective Time, each share of EFI’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Company Common Stock”), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares of Company Common Stock then (i) held by the Company as a treasury share, (ii) owned by Parent or Merger Sub, or (iii) owned by any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Parent or Merger Sub, which were cancelled and extinguished without any conversion thereof or consideration paid therefor) was cancelled and converted into the right to receive $37.00 in cash, without interest and subject to any applicable withholding of taxes (the “Merger Consideration”).

In addition, at or immediately prior to the Effective Time, each of the Company’s outstanding restricted stock units that were subject to time-based vesting requirements only (a “Company RSU”) and each of the Company’s outstanding restricted stock units that were subject to both time-based and performance-based vesting requirements (a “Company PSU”) were treated, as follows: (1) each Company RSU that was outstanding as of the date of the Merger Agreement that is vested or scheduled to vest within 12 months after the closing of the Merger (the “Closing”) was converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration promptly following the Closing; (2) each other Company RSU was assumed by Parent and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, subject to applicable tax withholding, in accordance with its existing vesting schedule and applicable terms and conditions immediately prior to the Effective Time, including the holder’s continued employment or service through the applicable vesting date; (3) each Company PSU granted pursuant to the Company’s 2019 annual bonus program was assumed by Parent and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, subject to applicable tax withholding, in accordance with its existing vesting schedule and applicable terms and conditions immediately prior to the Effective Time, including achievement of the applicable performance goals and the holder’s continued employment or service through the applicable vesting date; (4) each other Company PSU (a “Company LTIP PSU”), to the extent it would vest if the target level of performance established for the award had been attained, was assumed by Parent and converted into a right to receive the Merger Consideration, subject to applicable tax withholding, in accordance with the time-based vesting schedule for the award (but in no event earlier than the end of the applicable performance period) and the applicable terms and conditions immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than the performance-based vesting conditions), including the holder’s continued employment through the applicable vesting date; and (5) each Company LTIP PSU, to the extent eligible to vest only if the target level of performance under the award was exceeded and held by an individual employed by the Company or one of its subsidiaries at the Effective Time, was assumed by

 

2


Parent and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, subject to applicable tax withholding, in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions immediately prior to the Effective Time, including the time-based and performance-based vesting requirements applicable to the award, and any such Company LTIP PSU held by an individual not employed by the Company or one of its subsidiaries at the Effective Time was cancelled without payment. Any Company PSUs as to which the applicable performance period has ended prior to the Effective Time and that remain subject only to time-based vesting conditions were treated as Company RSUs as described above. In addition, at or immediately prior to the Effective Time, each of the Company’s stock options (whether vested or unvested) were cancelled and converted into the right to receive, for each share subject to the option, the Merger Consideration less the per-share exercise price of the option (with any option that has a per-share exercise price equal to or greater than the Merger Consideration being cancelled without payment at the Effective Time), subject to applicable tax withholding. In each case, any existing provisions for accelerated vesting of Company equity awards in connection with the transaction or in connection with a severance event under an employment or similar agreement will continue in effect in accordance with their terms.

The foregoing description of the Merger, the Merger Agreement and related transactions does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to EFI’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 15, 2019.

Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

In connection with the consummation of the Merger, EFI notified The Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”) of the effectiveness of the Merger and of its intent to remove the Company Common Stock from listing on Nasdaq and requested that Nasdaq file a Notification of Removal from Listing under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) on Form 25 to delist and deregister the shares of Company Common Stock. In accordance with Nasdaq requirements, trading of the Company Common Stock was suspended immediately following the after-hours session at 8 p.m. Eastern time on July 22, 2019.

EFI intends to file with the SEC a certification on Form 15 under the Exchange Act, requesting the deregistration of the Company Common Stock and the suspension of EFI’s reporting obligations under Sections 13(a) and 15(d) of the Exchange Act, as amended, with respect to the Company Common Stock, as promptly as practicable.

Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

At the Effective Time, each share of Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time was cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration (other than shares of Company Common Stock then (i) held by the Company as a treasury share, (ii) owned by Parent or Merger Sub, or (iii) owned by any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Parent or Merger Sub, which were cancelled and extinguished without any conversion thereof or consideration paid therefor).

At the Effective Time, the officers of the Company immediately prior to the Effective Time became the officers of the Surviving Company, each to hold office in accordance with the certificate of incorporation and bylaws of the Surviving Company until their respective successors are duly appointed.

Exhibit 3.1

SECOND AMENDED AND RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION

OF

ELECTRONICS FOR IMAGING, INC.

July 23, 2019

FIRST: The name of the corporation is Electronics for Imaging, Inc. (the “Corporation”).

SECOND: The Corporation shall have the authority to issue 500,000 shares of $0.01 par value common stock and 100,000 shares of $0.01 par value preferred stock.

THIRD: The Board of Directors is hereby expressly authorized to provide, out of the unissued shares of preferred stock, for one or more series of preferred stock and, with respect to each such series, to fix the number of shares constituting such series and the designation of such series, the voting powers, if any, of the shares of such series, and the preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights, if any, and any qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, of the shares of such series. The powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional and other special rights of each series of preferred stock, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, if any, may differ from those of any and all other series at any time outstanding.

FOURTH: The registered office of the Corporation shall be at 1209 Orange Street, City of Wilmington, County of New Castle, State of Delaware 19801. The registered agent of the Corporation at such address shall be The Corporation Trust Company.

FIFTH: The purpose of the Corporation is to engage in any lawful act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.

SIXTH: In furtherance and not in limitation of the powers conferred by statute, the Board of Directors is expressly authorized to make, alter, amend or repeal the Bylaws of the Corporation, but the stockholders may make additional bylaws and may alter, amend or repeal any Bylaws of the Corporation whether adopted by them or otherwise.

SEVENTH: The number of directors of the Corporation shall be fixed from time to time by, or in the manner provided in, the Bylaws of the Corporation. Elections of directors need not be by written ballot unless the Bylaws of the Corporation so provide.

EIGHTH: A director of the Corporation shall not be personally liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the Corporation or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal


benefit. If the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware is amended to authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting the personal liability of directors, then the liability of a director of the Corporation shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent permitted by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as so amended. Any repeal or modification of the foregoing provisions of this Article Eighth by the stockholders of the Corporation shall not adversely affect the elimination or limitation of liability or alleged liability pursuant hereto of any director of the Corporation for or with respect to any alleged act or omission of the director occurring prior to such repeal or modification.

NINTH: To the fullest extent permitted by Section 145 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, the Corporation shall indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law as it presently exists or may hereafter be amended, any director or officer of the Corporation who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (a “Proceeding”), by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director or officer of the Corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to employee benefits plans, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, losses, fines and amounts paid in settlement (collectively, “Losses”) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such Proceeding if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe such person’s conduct was unlawful. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Corporation shall be required to indemnify a person in connection with a Proceeding commenced by such person only if the commencement of such Proceeding was authorized in the specific case by the Board of Directors.

The Corporation shall have the power to indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law as it presently exists or may hereafter be amended, any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any Proceeding by reason of the fact that such person is or was an employee or agent of the Corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to employee benefits plans, against Losses actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such Proceeding if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe such person’s conduct was unlawful.

Given that certain jointly indemnifiable claims (as defined below) may arise due to indemnification provided by certain indemnitee-related entities (as defined below) to the indemnified parties pursuant to this Article Ninth (the “Indemnified Parties”), the Corporation shall be fully and primarily responsible for the payment to the Indemnified Parties in respect of indemnification or advancement of expenses in connection with any such jointly indemnifiable claims, pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of this Article Ninth, irrespective of any right of recovery the Indemnified Parties may have from the indemnitee-related entities. Under no circumstance shall the Corporation be entitled to any right of subrogation or contribution by the indemnitee-related entities, and no right of advancement or recovery the Indemnified Parties may


have from the indemnitee-related entities shall reduce or otherwise alter the rights of the Indemnified Parties or the obligations of the Corporation hereunder. In the event that any of the indemnitee-related entities shall make any payment to any of the Indemnified Parties in respect of indemnification or advancement of expenses with respect to any jointly indemnifiable claim, the indemnitee-related entity making such payment shall be subrogated to the extent of such payment to all of the rights of recovery of such Indemnified Parties against the Corporation, and the Indemnified Parties shall execute all documents reasonably required and shall do all things that may be reasonably necessary to secure such rights, including the execution of such documents as may be necessary to enable the indemnitee-related entities effectively to bring suit to enforce such rights. Each of the indemnitee-related entities shall be third-party beneficiaries with respect to this Article Ninth, entitled to enforce this Article Ninth.

A right to indemnification arising under this Certificate of Incorporation shall not be eliminated or impaired by an amendment to this Certificate of Incorporation after the occurrence of the act or omission that is the subject of the Proceeding for which indemnification is sought.

For purposes of this Article Ninth, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

(i) the term “indemnitee-related entities” means any corporation, limited liability company, partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise (other than the Corporation) from whom an Indemnified Party may be entitled to indemnification or advancement of expenses on account of Proceedings or Losses with respect to which, in whole or in part, the Corporation may also have an indemnification or advancement obligation.

(ii) the term “jointly indemnifiable claims” shall be broadly construed and shall include, without limitation, Proceeding for which any of the Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to indemnification or advancement of expenses from both (i) the Corporation, on the one hand, and (ii) any indemnitee-related entity pursuant to any other agreement between any indemnitee-related entity and the Indemnified Party pursuant to which such Indemnified Party is indemnified, the laws of the jurisdiction of incorporation or organization of any indemnitee-related entity and/or the certificate of incorporation, certificate of organization, bylaws, partnership agreement, operating agreement, certificate of formation, certificate of limited partnership or other organizational or governing documents of any indemnitee-related entity, on the other hand.

TENTH:

(A) In recognition and anticipation that (i) certain directors, principals, officers, employees and/or other representatives of Siris Capital Group, LLC (“Siris”) and its Affiliates (as defined below) may serve as directors, officers or agents of the Corporation, (ii) Siris and its Affiliates may now engage and may continue to engage in the same or similar activities or related lines of business as those in which the Corporation, directly or indirectly, may engage and/or other business activities that overlap with or compete with those in which the Corporation, directly or indirectly, may engage, and (iii) members of the Board of Directors who are not employees of the Corporation (“Non-Employee Directors”) and their respective Affiliates may now engage and may continue to engage in the same or similar activities or related lines of business as those in which the Corporation, directly or indirectly, may engage and/or other business activities that


overlap with or compete with those in which the Corporation, directly or indirectly, may engage, the provisions of this Article Tenth are set forth to regulate and define the conduct of certain affairs of the Corporation with respect to certain classes or categories of business opportunities as they may involve any of Siris, the Non-Employee Directors or their respective Affiliates and the powers, rights, duties and liabilities of the Corporation and its directors, officers and stockholders in connection therewith.

(B) None of (i) Siris or any of its Affiliates or (ii) any Non-Employee Director or his or her Affiliates (the Persons (as defined below) identified in (i) and (ii) above being referred to, collectively, as “Identified Persons”) shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, have any duty to refrain from directly or indirectly (1) engaging in the same or similar business activities or lines of business in which the Corporation or any of its Affiliates now engages or proposes to engage or (2) otherwise competing with the Corporation or any of its Affiliates, and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, no Identified Person shall be liable to the Corporation or its stockholders or to any Affiliate of the Corporation for breach of any fiduciary duty solely by reason of the fact that such Identified Person engages in any such activities. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Corporation hereby renounces any interest or expectancy in, or right to be offered an opportunity to participate in, any business opportunity which may be a corporate opportunity for an Identified Person and the Corporation or any of its Affiliates, except as provided in Section (C) of this Article Tenth. Subject to said Section (C) of this Article Tenth, in the event that any Identified Person acquires knowledge of a potential transaction or other business opportunity which may be a corporate opportunity for itself, herself or himself and the Corporation or any of its Affiliates, such Identified Person shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, have no duty to communicate or offer such transaction or other business opportunity to the Corporation or any of its Affiliates and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, shall not be liable to the Corporation or its stockholders or to any Affiliate of the Corporation for breach of any fiduciary duty as a stockholder, director or officer of the Corporation solely by reason of the fact that such Identified Person pursues or acquires such corporate opportunity for itself, herself or himself, or offers or directs such corporate opportunity to another Person.

(C) The Corporation does not renounce its interest in any corporate opportunity offered to any Non-Employee Director if such opportunity is expressly offered to such person solely in his or her capacity as a director or officer of the Corporation, in which event the provisions of Section (B) of this Article Tenth shall not apply to any such corporate opportunity.

(D) In addition to and notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Article Tenth, a corporate opportunity shall not be deemed to be a potential corporate opportunity for the Corporation if it is a business opportunity that (i) the Corporation is either financially or legally unable, or not contractually permitted, to undertake, (ii) from its nature, is not in the line of the Corporation’s business or is of no practical advantage to the Corporation or (iii) is one in which the Corporation has no interest or reasonable expectancy.

(E) For purposes of this Article Tenth, (i) “Affiliate” shall mean (a) in respect of Siris, any Person that, directly or indirectly, is controlled by Siris, controls Siris or is under common control with Siris and shall include any principal, member, manager, director, partner, stockholder, officer, employee or other representative of any of the foregoing (other than the Corporation and any entity that is controlled by the Corporation), (b) in respect of a Non-Employee


Director, any Person that, directly or indirectly, is controlled by such Non-Employee Director (other than the Corporation and any entity that is controlled by the Corporation) and (c) in respect of the Corporation, any Person that, directly or indirectly, is controlled by the Corporation; and (ii) “Person” shall mean any individual, corporation, general or limited partnership, limited liability company, joint venture, trust, association or any other entity.

(F) To the fullest extent permitted by law, any Person purchasing or otherwise acquiring any interest in any shares of capital stock of the Corporation shall be deemed to have notice of and to have consented to the provisions of this Article Tenth.

Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast in the election of directors. Each other question shall, unless otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, be decided by the vote of the holders of stock having a majority of the votes which could be cast by the holders of all stock entitled to vote on such question which are present in person or by proxy at the meeting.

(b) Each stockholder entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders or to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting may authorize another person or persons to act for such stockholder by proxy, but no such proxy shall be voted or acted upon after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period. A proxy shall be irrevocable if it states that it is irrevocable and if, and only as long as, it is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power. A stockholder may revoke any proxy which is not irrevocable by attending the meeting and voting in person or by delivering to the secretary of the Corporation a revocation of the proxy or a new proxy bearing a later date. Voting at meetings of stockholders need not be by written ballot.

(c) Any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of stockholders may, except as otherwise required by law or the Certificate of Incorporation, be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by the holders of record of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Corporation having a majority of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted, and the writing or writings are filed with the minutes of proceedings of the stockholders.
