Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 31, 2018, One Stop Systems GmbH, a limited liability company under the laws of Germany (the “Purchaser”), and wholly-owned subsidiary of One Stop Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with the shareholders (the “Sellers”) of Bressner Technology GmbH, a limited liability company under the laws of Germany (“Bressner”).

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, acquired all of the outstanding stock of Bressner from the Sellers (the “Transaction”). The Transaction closed concurrently with the execution of the Purchase Agreement on October 31, 2018 (the “Closing Date”). As a result, Bressner will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Purchaser, which financials will be consolidated with those of the Company. Due to the structure of the Transaction, neither the Company nor Bressner are parties to the Purchase Agreement.

As consideration for the Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser delivered to the Sellers on the Closing Date the purchase price of €5,025,000, consisting of the following consideration: (i) a cash purchase price of €4,725,000 (the “Cash Consideration”) and (ii) 106,463 duly authorized, newly and validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable shares of restricted common stock of the Company (the “Stock Consideration,” and together with the “Cash Consideration,” the “Purchase Price”). The Stock Consideration has a value of €300,000 and the number of shares of common stock of the Company issued was equal to (y) €300,000 divided by (z) the average closing price of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Stock Market for the fifteen (15) consecutive trading day period ending prior to the Closing Date.

The entire Stock Consideration issued to the Sellers which is valued at €300,000 will be held in an indemnification escrow holdback for two years.

The Purchase Agreement is between German parties and is being governed by German law. The Purchase Agreement includes representations, warranties and covenants customary of such a German transaction which may not be as expansive as those in similar transactions between U.S. parties. The Sellers have represented to, among other things, their authority to enter and perform under the Purchase Agreement, title to the shares of Bressner, financial statements, lack of legal proceedings, compliance with tax filing obligations, title to intellectual property, largest suppliers/ customers, employment matters and material contracts. The Purchaser has represented to, among other things, its authority to enter into and perform under the Purchase Agreement, financial ability to pay the Purchase Price, lack of legal proceedings, and ability to issue the Stock Consideration.

On the Closing Date, Bressner delivered financial statements audited in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles within the country of Germany. The Purchaser agreed to waive the contractual requirement for such financial statements being in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) as well as the requirement to deliver certain third party consents, including those of, certain lenders, landlords and distribution partners. The Company will prepare financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP not later than 71 days after the date upon which this Current Report on Form 8-K must be filed as required by Item 9.01.

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement and the Transaction contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
