Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement

On February 22, 2019, Terex Corporation (“Terex” or the “Company”) entered into an Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “ASPA”) with Tadano Ltd. (“Tadano”). Pursuant to the ASPA, Terex is selling its Demag mobile cranes business to Tadano for an enterprise value of $215 million (the “Transaction”). The consideration is being paid in cash and the cash received will be net of indebtedness, as such term is defined in the ASPA. The purchase price is subject to post-closing adjustments based upon the level of net working capital and cash and debt in the Demag mobile cranes business at the closing date.

The products to be divested by Terex are Demag® all terrain cranes and large crawler cranes. The Transaction, which is subject to governmental regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, is targeted to close in mid-2019.

There are no material relationships among the Company and Tadano or any of their respective affiliates, other than with respect to the ASPA and the related ancillary agreements.

The representations, warranties and covenants of the parties contained in the ASPA 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 ASPA, (ii) have been qualified by confidential disclosures made by the parties to each other in connection with the ASPA, (iii) are subject to materiality qualifications contained in the ASPA which may differ from what may be viewed as material by investors, (iv) were made only as of the date of the ASPA or such other date as is specified in the ASPA and (v) have been included in the ASPA for the purpose of allocating risk between the contracting parties rather than establishing matters as facts. Accordingly, the ASPA is included with this report only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the ASPA, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the parties or their respective businesses. 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. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the ASPA, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the parties' public disclosures.

The foregoing summary of the material terms of the ASPA does not purport to be completed and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the ASPA, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 2.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
