Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Separation-Related Agreements

On June 27, 2019, KAR Auction Services, Inc. (“KAR”) entered into a Separation and Distribution Agreement (the “Separation and Distribution Agreement”) with IAA, Inc. (f/k/a IAA Spinco Inc.), a wholly owned subsidiary of KAR at that time (“IAA”), that sets forth, among other things, certain agreements between KAR and IAA regarding the principal transactions necessary to effect the separation of IAA from KAR and the distribution (as described below). On June 27, 2019, in connection with the completion of the separation and distribution, KAR entered into certain other agreements with IAA as contemplated by the Separation and Distribution Agreement that provide for the separation and allocation between KAR and IAA of the assets, employees, liabilities and obligations of KAR and its subsidiaries attributable to periods prior to, at and after IAA’s separation from KAR and govern the relationship between KAR and IAA subsequent to the completion of the separation and distribution. These agreements include:


a Transition Services Agreement;


a Tax Matters Agreement; and


an Employee Matters Agreement.

The description of the agreements set forth under this Item 1.01 does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of those agreements, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 2.1, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3.

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Effective as of 12:01 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time (“EDT”), on June 28, 2019, the distribution date, KAR distributed all of the issued and outstanding shares of IAA common stock to KAR’s common stockholders of record as of 5:00 pm EDT on June 18, 2019, the record date for the distribution, on a pro rata basis. On the distribution date, each KAR common stockholder of record received one share of IAA common stock for every one share of KAR common stock held by such stockholder as of the record date. No fractional shares of IAA’s common stock were distributed. Fractional shares of IAA’s common stock were aggregated and sold in the public market, and the aggregate net cash proceeds of these sales were distributed pro rata to KAR common stockholders who would otherwise have been entitled to receive fractional shares of IAA’s common stock. As a result of the distribution, KAR does not beneficially own any shares of IAA common stock. The separation and distribution resulted in IAA becoming an independent, publicly traded company, trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “IAA.”

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Effective as of 11:59 p.m., EDT, on June 27, 2019, the time of the separation, Lynn Jolliffe and John P. Larson each resigned as a director of KAR. Ms. Jolliffe and Mr. Larson are now directors of IAA. KAR intends to fill the vacancies created by the resignations at the next meeting of its board of directors in July 2019.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

On June 28, 2019, KAR issued a press release announcing the completion of the separation and distribution. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
