Item 2.01
Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

On August 13, 2018, The Brink’s Company (the “Company”) completed its previously announced acquisition of Dunbar Armored, Inc. (“Dunbar”) pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, dated as of May 30, 2018 (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”), by and among the Company, Dunbar, the holders of all of the capital stock of Dunbar (the “Sellers”) and Kevin Dunbar, as the Sellers’ Representative.

Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired 100% of the capital stock of Dunbar for approximately $520 million in cash (the “Acquisition”). At the closing of the Acquisition, Dunbar became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

The foregoing description of the Stock Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Stock Purchase Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 31, 2018.

Item 7.01
Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 13, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the completion of its acquisition of Dunbar.
The Company expects the Acquisition to increase its annual non-GAAP earnings by approximately $0.90 per share within two years. The transaction is also expected to facilitate utilization of the Company’s existing tax attributes and reduce its non-GAAP effective tax rate by 100 to 200 basis points in 2019 and, combined with other actions, reduce its non-GAAP effective tax rate by 400 to 600 basis points over the next several years. The Company does not expect to pay federal cash taxes in the U.S. for at least six years due to utilization of its existing tax attributes and the benefit of an Internal Revenue Code 338(h)(10) election with respect to the Acquisition.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for the 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 in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific references in such a filing.
