On November 1, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement and plan of merger, dated as of November 1, 2016 with American DG Energy (NYSE MKT: ADGE) ("American DG"), and Tecogen.ADGE Acquisition Corp Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tecogen ("Merger Subsidiary").
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Subsidiary will merge with and into American DG, with American DG becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tecogen and the surviving corporation of the transaction (the "Merger"). The Merger is intended to qualify for federal income tax purposes as a tax-free reorganization under the provisions of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement and shareholder approval, at the closing of the Merger, each outstanding share of American DG common stock will be converted into the right to receive approximately 0.092 shares of common stock of Tecogen ("the Exchange Ratio"). Consummation of the Merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among other things, approval by the stockholders of Tecogen and American DG. The Merger Agreement does not contain any termination, prohibitions on termination, no-shop clause, or reimbursements of Merger related expenses. As part of the Merger Agreement, American DG and Tecogen have made customary mutual representations and warranties.
The Company filed a registration statement on Form S-4, which contains a proxy statement of the Company and a prospectus of the Company (the “Registration Statement”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). On April 12, 2017, the Registration Statement was declared effective by the SEC, and the Company announced that a special meeting of the Company’s stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) is scheduled to be held on May 18, 2017, at 11 a.m., Eastern Time, at the Company’s principal executive offices at 45 First Avenue, Waltham, Massachusetts 02451, to consider and vote on (1) a proposal to approve the issuance of the shares of common stock, par value $.001 per share, of the Company pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of November 1, 2016, as subsequently amended (the “Merger Agreement”), among the Company, Tecogen.ADGE Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), and American DG Energy Inc. (“ADGE”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into ADGE, with ADGE as the surviving entity such that ADGE will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”), and (2) a proposal to approve the adjournment or postponement of the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies. Stockholders of record of the Company at the close of business on April 24, 2017, will be entitled to vote by proxy or in person at the Special Meeting.
