Item 1.01   Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

On September 30, 2020, PAR Technology Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Jefferies LLC, as underwriter (the “Underwriter”), relating to an underwritten public offering of 3,350,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.02 per share (the “Common Stock”). All of the Shares are being sold by the Company. The price to the public is $38.00 per share, and the Underwriter has agreed to purchase the Shares from the Company pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement at a price of $36.48 per share. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriter an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 502,500 shares of Common Stock (the “Additional Shares”) at the same price per share as the Shares.

The Company estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $121.7 million, or approximately $140.0 million if the Underwriter exercises in full its option to purchase Additional Shares, in each case after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses.

The Shares, and any Additional Shares, will be sold pursuant to an automatically effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 30, 2020 (File No. 333-249142). A prospectus supplement relating to the offering has been filed with the SEC. The closing of the offering is expected to take place on or about October 5, 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriter, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is attached as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the material terms of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
