(e)

As previously disclosed, on September 28, 2018, CafePress Inc. (the “Company”), Snapfish, LLC, a California limited liability company (“Parent”) and Snapfish Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will commence a tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase all of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value, at a price of $1.48 per share in cash, without interest, subject to any applicable withholding taxes.

On October 10, 2018, and in connection with the Merger Agreement, the Compensation Committee of the Company approved the following actions, each of which is conditioned on the consummation of the merger pursuant to the Merger Agreement, with respect to equity awards held by the Company’s named executive officers Fred E. Durham III, Phillip L. Milliner, Jr., and Ekumene M. Lysonge:

 

   

All outstanding options to purchase common stock of the Company held by the named executive officers that provide for time-based vesting, will be amended such that, immediately prior to the effective time of the merger, such stock options will be converted into restricted stock units (RSUs) at the ratio of 1 RSU for every 2 shares underlying the outstanding stock options. When issued, the new RSUs will be 100% vested.

 

   

All outstanding options to purchase common stock of the Company held by the named executive officers that provide for performance-based vesting, will terminate at the closing with no portion of such option being earned;

 

   

All outstanding performance-based restricted stock units (PSUs) granted prior to 2018 and held by the named executive officers will terminate at closing with no portion of such PSUs being earned;

 

   

The outstanding performance-based restricted stock units (PSUs) granted effective May 1, 2018 and held by the named executive officers, will be amended, subject to the consent of the participant holding such award pursuant to the form of Amendment to the May 1, 2018 Notice of Performance-Based Restricted Stock Unit Award, to provide that the achievement of the performance criteria for calendar year 2018 will be determined by Snapfish, LLC following December 31, 2018, with payment for the earned portion of the award subject to such holder continuing to be employed by the Company or its successor on the payment date, and subject to the merger occurring prior to December 31, 2018;

 

   

each outstanding time-based restricted stock unit held by the named executive officers will become fully vested as of immediately prior to the effective time of the merger so long as such individual remains employed by the Company as of the closing date.

Additionally, the Compensation Committee approved the following, each of which is conditioned on the consummation of the merger pursuant to the Merger Agreement:

 

   

the bonuses that each of Phillip L. Milliner, Jr. and Ekumene M. Lysonge are entitled to receive pursuant to the Company’s cash bonus plan and form of change in control agreement for senior management, shall be revised such that (a) a pro rata amount of the 2018 bonus to which each executive officer is entitled shall be paid at the closing of the merger based on those quarters ending prior to the merger for which the Company has received audited financial statements, and (b) in the event the executive officer is terminated without cause or is constructively terminated prior to one year following the merger, he will receive the remaining portion of the 2018 bonus upon such termination. In the event the June 30, 2018 financial statements are the final audited quarterly financial statements, then Mr. Milliner would receive a pro-rata bonus of $125,000 at closing and be eligible to receive $62,500 in the event he is terminated without cause or constructively terminated within one year, and Mr. Lysonge would receive a pro-rata bonus of $96,000 at closing and be eligible to receive $48,000 in the event he is terminated without cause or constructively terminated within one year.


   

An amendment to the Retention Award Agreement with each of Phillip L. Milliner, Jr. and Ekumene M. Lysonge pursuant to a form of Amendment to the CafePress Inc. Form of Retention Award Agreement, to provide for 100% payment of the retention bonus at closing, so long as each individual remains employed by the Company as of the closing date. In the event that Mr. Milliner and Mr. Lysonge remain employed by the Company as of the closing date of the merger, then Mr. Milliner would receive a retention bonus of $175,000 at closing and Mr. Lysonge would receive a retention bonus of $146,000 at closing.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K are forward-looking statements, including statements with respect to the proposed Offer and merger, the treatment of equity awards in connection therewith, and the payment of certain bonus amounts in connection therewith. Forward-looking statements may be typically identified by such words as “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “likely,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “intend,” and other similar expressions among others. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any or all of such forward-looking statements may prove to be incorrect. Consequently, no forward-looking statements may be guaranteed and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by such forward looking statements will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, the Company or its businesses or operations.

Factors which could cause actual results to differ from those projected or contemplated in any such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following factors: (1) the risk that the conditions to the closing of the transaction are not satisfied, including the risk that Parent may not receive sufficient number of shares tendered from the Company’s stockholders to complete the Offer; (2) litigation relating to the transaction; (3) uncertainties as to the timing of the consummation of the transaction and the ability of each of Parent and the Company to consummate the transaction; (4) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts the current plans and operations of Parent or the Company; (5) the ability of Parent or the Company to retain and hire key personnel; (6) competitive responses to the proposed transaction; (7) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the transaction; (8) potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the transaction; (9) Parent’s ability to achieve the synergies and value expected from the transaction, as well as delays, challenges and expenses associated with integrating the Company with Parent’s existing businesses; and (10) legislative, regulatory and economic developments.


The foregoing factors that could cause actual events to differ from expectations should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with statements that are included herein and elsewhere, including the risk factors included in the Company’s most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and more recent reports filed with the SEC. The Company cannot give assurance that the conditions to the transaction will be satisfied. Company does not undertake any intent or obligation to publicly update or revise any of these forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

AMENDMENT TO THE

MAY 1, 2018 NOTICE OF PERFORMANCE-BASED

RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD

WHEREAS,                      (“Executive”) was granted Performance-Based Restricted Stock Units (“PSUs”) by CafePress Inc. (the “Company”) pursuant to the Notice of Restricted Stock Unit Award (the “Award”) dated May 1, 2018;

WHEREAS, the Company, Snapfish, LLC (“Parent”) and Snapfish Merger Sub, Inc. have entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of September 28, 2018 (the “Merger Agreement”) and

WHEREAS, both the Company and Parent desires to provide for continued consideration of performance after the Closing Date and, therefore, subject to the consummation of the Merger Agreement, desire to amend the terms of the Award.

THEREFORE, instead of the terms of the Award which apply in the case of a Change in Control, the following shall apply with respect to the Change in Control resulting from consummation of the Merger Agreement:

Upon a Change in Control prior to the end of the Performance Period, the Company’s performance against the performance criteria shall be determined by the Company following the end the Performance Period. Based on such performance, the number of stock units earned shall be determined as soon as practical thereafter. Executive shall be entitled to payment with respect to the earned stock units as determined and in the amount for each unit as provided for under the Merger Agreement provided that Executive is employed as of the payment date for such Award. For the avoidance of doubt, following the Merger, all determinations shall be made in good faith by the Company and without regard to the Company no longer filing an annual report on Form 10-K.

All terms not otherwise defined in this Amendment are defined in the Merger Agreement.

All other terms and conditions of the Award remain unchanged.

In the event the Merger Agreement is terminated, abandoned or does not occur for any reason, this amendment shall terminate and be void ab initio.
