Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 18, 2020, Service Transport Company (“Service Transport”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”), between Service Transport and Comcar Industries, Inc. (“Comcar”) pursuant to which Service Transport will acquire substantially all of the assets of Comcar’s subsidiary, CTL Transportation, LLC (“CTL”), for approximately $9 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. Service Transport’s anticipated purchase of CTL’s assets is part of Comcar’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy process announced on May 17, 2020.

Comcar has filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware seeking approval of the Asset Purchase Agreement with Service Transport. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval, including through the bankruptcy court, and closing conditions. The Company expects to close the transaction as soon as practicable after such regulatory approvals and closing conditions have been satisfied, which is currently anticipated to occur in the third quarter or earlier.

The foregoing summary of the Asset Purchase Agreement is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Asset Purchase Agreement. The Company intends to file the Asset Purchase Agreement as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2020, or in an earlier filing.
