Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On August 31, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), TRHC MEC Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Purchaser”) and wholly-owned subsidiary of Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“TRHC”) entered into, and consummated the transactions contemplated by, a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and among Purchaser, each member (each, a “Seller” and collectively, the “Sellers”) of Mediture LLC, a Minnesota limited liability company (“Mediture”), and eClusive L.L.C., a Minnesota limited liability company (“eClusive” and together with Mediture, the “Targets”), and Kelley Business Law, PLLC, solely in its capacity as the Seller Representative. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, each Seller assigned, transferred and sold to Purchaser, and Purchaser purchased from such Sellers, all of the issued and outstanding membership and/or economic interests of Mediture and eClusive (collectively, the “Transaction”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined have the meaning set forth in the Purchase Agreement.


At the closing of the Transaction, TRHC paid (i) $18.5 million in cash consideration, subject to adjustments set forth in the Purchase Agreement, and (ii) issued 45,561 shares of TRHC common stock (valued at $76.82 per share) (the “Closing Consideration”).  A portion of the cash consideration is being held in escrow to secure potential claims by TRHC for indemnification under the Purchase Agreement and in respect of adjustments to the purchase price.


The Purchase Agreement includes customary terms and conditions, including provisions that require the Sellers to indemnify Purchaser for certain losses that it incurs, including as a result of a breach by any Seller of his respective representations, warranties or covenants under the Purchase Agreement. The foregoing description of the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement. TRHC expects to file a copy of the Purchase Agreement with its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2018.


The representations, warranties and covenants of the parties contained in the Purchase Agreement have been made solely for the benefit of the parties thereto. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) have been made only for purposes of the Purchase Agreement, (ii) have been qualified by confidential disclosures made by the Targets to Purchaser in connection with the Purchase Agreement, (iii) are subject to materiality qualifications contained in the Purchase Agreement which may differ from what may be viewed as material by investors, (iv) were made only as of the date of the Purchase Agreement or such other date as is specified in the Purchase Agreement and (v) have been included in the Purchase Agreement for the purpose of allocating risk between the contracting parties rather than establishing matters as facts. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties or covenants, or any descriptions thereof, as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the parties or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates.


Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets


The disclosures set forth in Item 1.01 above are incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01.


The financial statements of the Targets and the pro forma financial information of TRHC required under Item 9.01 of this report will be filed by amendment not later than 71 calendar days after the date on which this Current Report on Form 8-K is required to be filed.


Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant


The disclosures set forth in Item 1.01 above are incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.


Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities


The disclosures set forth in Item 1.01 above are incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02.  TRHC issued common stock in connection with the closing of the Transaction in a private placement exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  TRHC relied on representations made by the individuals who received TRHC common stock to the effect that they were acquiring the TRHC common stock for investment purposes and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, the distribution of such securities in violation of applicable securities laws and that they had sufficient knowledge and experience in business and financial matters to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in such securities.




Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure


On September 4, 2018, TRHC issued a press release announcing the completion of the Transaction.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and is incorporated by reference herein.


The information furnished pursuant to this Item 7.01 and the accompanying Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, and is not to be incorporated by reference into any filing of TRHC.


Item 8.01 Other Events


The following risk factors are provided to update the risk factors of TRHC previously disclosed in TRHC’s periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017:


We face additional risks as a result of the Transaction and may be unable to integrate our businesses successfully and realize the anticipated synergies and related benefits of the Transaction or do so within the anticipated timeframe.


On August 31, 2018, we completed our acquisitions of the Targets. As a result of the Transaction, the company faces various additional risks, including, among others, the following:


·                  our inability to successfully evaluate and utilize the Targets’ products, services, technologies or personnel;


·                  disruption to the Targets’ businesses and operations and relationships with service providers, customers, employees and other partners;


·                  negative effects on our products, product pipeline and services from the changes and potential disruption that may follow the acquisition;


·                  diversion of our management’s attention from other strategic activities;


·                  our inability to successfully combine the businesses in a manner that permits us to achieve the cost savings anticipated to result from the Transaction;


·                  diversion of significant resources from the ongoing development of our existing products, services and operations; and


·                  greater than anticipated costs related to the integration of the Targets’ businesses and operations into ours.


Our ability to execute all such plans will depend on various factors, many of which remain outside our control. Any of these risks could adversely affect our business and financial results.


The process of integrating the Targets’ operations into our operations could result in unforeseen operating difficulties and require significant resources.


The following factors, among others, could reduce our revenues and earnings, increase our operating costs, and result in a loss of projected synergies:


·                  if we are unable to successfully integrate the duties, responsibilities, and other factors of interest to the management and employees of the acquired businesses, we could lose employees to our competitors, which could significantly affect our ability to operate the businesses and complete the integration;




·                  if we are unable to implement and retain uniform standards, controls, policies, procedures and information systems; and


·                  if the integration process causes any delays with the delivery of our services, or the quality of those services, we could lose customers, which would reduce our revenues and earnings.


The process of integrating the Targets and their associated services and technologies involves numerous risks that could materially and adversely affect our results of operations or stock price.


The following factors, among others, could materially and adversely affect our results of operations or stock price:


·                  expenses related to the acquisition process and impairment charges to goodwill and other intangible assets related to the acquisition;


·                  the dilutive effect on earnings per share as a result of issuances of stock and incurring operating losses;


·                  stock volatility due to investors’ uncertainty regarding the value of the Targets;


·                  diversion of capital from other uses;


·                  failure to achieve the anticipated benefits of the acquisition in a timely manner, or at all; and


·                  adverse outcome of litigation matters or other contingent liabilities assumed in or arising out of the acquisition.


Notwithstanding the due diligence investigation we performed in connection with the Transaction, the Targets may have liabilities, losses, or other exposures for which we do not have adequate insurance coverage, indemnification, or other protection.


While we performed significant due diligence on the Targets prior to signing the Purchase Agreement, we are dependent on the accuracy and completeness of statements and disclosures made or actions taken by the Targets and their representatives when conducting due diligence and evaluating the results of such due diligence.  We did not control and may be unaware of activities of the Targets before the acquisition, including intellectual property and other litigation claims or disputes, information security vulnerabilities, violations of laws, policies, rules and regulations, commercial disputes, tax liabilities and other known and unknown liabilities.


Our post-closing recourse is limited under the Purchase Agreement.


The Sellers’ obligations to indemnify us is limited to, among others, breaches of specified representations and warranties and covenants included in the Purchase Agreement and other specific indemnities as set forth in the Purchase Agreement. In the event that any Seller breaches a representation or warranty other than a Fundamental Representation (as defined in the Purchase Agreement), we cannot recover in respect of a claim for indemnification pursuant to the Purchase Agreement with respect to such non-Fundamental Representation unless and until the indemnifiable losses exceed $165,000, and we cannot make an indemnification claim against the Sellers for a breach of a non-Fundamental Representation after the date that is 18 months after the date of closing of the Transaction.  If any issues arise post-closing, we may not be entitled to sufficient, or any, indemnification or recourse from the Sellers, which could have a material adverse impact on our business and results of operations.


Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits


(a)                                 Financial Statements of Businesses Acquired


The audited financial statements and unaudited interim financial statements of the Targets required by this Item 9.01(a) will be filed by amendment not later than 71 calendar days after the date on which this Current Report on Form 8-K is required to be filed.


(b)                                 Pro Forma Financial Information




The unaudited pro forma financial information of TRHC required by this Item 9.01(b) will be furnished by amendment not later than 71 calendar days after the date on which this Current Report on Form 8-K is required to be filed.


(d)                                 Exhibits.

Tabula Rasa HealthCare Acquires Mediture and eClusive


Mediture’s Electronic Health Record software solution and eClusive’s third party administrator services will expand TRHC’s presence in the PACE market and with other At-risk Providers


Moorestown, NJ, September 4, 2018 — Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (“TRHC”) (NASDAQ:TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, today announced it has acquired Mediture and eClusive, a leading electronic health record solution and provider of third party administrator services in the PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) market. Mediture and eClusive also service several managed long-term care organizations in the State of New York.


“We are thrilled to join the TRHC family, which shares our commitment to quality care,” said Steve Wosje, Mediture’s newly-appointed Chief Operations Officer and previous Director of Operations. “We have had a long-standing and productive relationship with the leadership of TRHC over the years and together have brought innovative integration solutions to clients.”


Mediture and eClusive will become part of TRHC’s new CareVention HealthCare (“CareVention”) technology and service division, which was created in response to PACE 2.0, a National PACE Association initiative to accelerate PACE growth. The CareVention division will offer an integrated technology platform, including advanced data analytics, as well as consulting services for PACE and other financially at-risk healthcare organizations to support growth and optimize the care they provide to their participants. PACE is a federal program, with 250 centers located in 31 states serving a growing number of eligible Medicare and Medicaid participants.


According to Joseph Filippoli, TRHC’s Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer, “Mediture and eClusive’s transition to Tabula Rasa HealthCare will be seamless for clients. Our number one priority is to ensure that our clients see a tangible benefit from the alignment of all of these services and technology. We expect to be able to present data to our clients in a way that will provide them with insights that were not available to them before, enhancing their ability to manage their PACE organizations and improving the quality of care they provide.”


TRHC’s CareVention division also includes TRHC subsidiary Capstone Performance Systems, its Peak Health Plan Management Services division, and will offer CareKinesis’ medication risk management and pharmacy services for PACE organizations across the country.
