The information in this Item 2.02 and Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 of this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
On August 6, 2018, Zillow Group announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, ZGM Holdco, Inc., has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Mortgage Lenders of America, L.L.C. (“MLOA”), a national mortgage lender headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas. The purchase agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the parties as well as conditions to closing, including, among other things, the receipt of certain third-party consents and governmental approvals and the absence of a material adverse effect on MLOA. Zillow Group currently expects the transaction to close in the fourth quarter of 2018. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts and generally may be identified by terms such as “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect” or the negative or plural of these words or similar expressions. Differences may result from actions taken by Zillow Group, as well as from risks and uncertainties beyond the company’s control, including the satisfaction of conditions precedent to the closing of Zillow Group’s acquisition of MLOA. Additional factors that could cause results to differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements can be found under the caption “Risk Factors” in Zillow Group, Inc.’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2018 and in the company’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
