Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Agreement and Plan of Merger


On May 5, 2021, Jamf Holding Corp. (“Jamf”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Jamf, JAMF Software, LLC (the “Buyer”), a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Jamf, White Wolf Merger Sub, Inc., (“Merger Sub”), a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Buyer, Wandera, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Wandera”), and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, a Colorado limited liability company, solely in its capacity as the representative of the equityholders of Wandera, pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into Wandera (the “Merger”), with Wandera surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Buyer. Wandera is a leader in zero trust cloud security and access for mobile devices.


Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, upon the consummation of the Merger, the Buyer will acquire all of the equity interests of Wandera for $400.0 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments as set forth in the Merger Agreement (the “Merger Consideration”), provided that $25.0 million of the Merger Consideration will be payable on October 1, 2021 and $25.0 million of the Merger Consideration will be payable on December 15, 2021. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, (i) each outstanding share of common stock and preferred stock of Wandera, each vested option exerciseable for shares of common stock of Wandera, and each warrant exerciseable for shares of preferred stock of Wandera will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive a portion of the Merger Consideration on the applicable payment dates; and (ii) each unvested Wandera option will be cancelled for no consideration. In addition, Jamf agreed to provide an aggregate of at least $15.0 million of restricted stock units of Jamf to certain Wandera employees who will serve at Jamf following consummation of the Merger.


The Buyer, Merger Sub and Wandera each made customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Merger Agreement, including covenants from Wandera to conduct its business in the ordinary course and not to take certain actions during the period between the signing of the Merger Agreement and the closing of the Merger. Additionally, upon consummation of the Merger, an aggregate of $650,000 of the Merger Consideration will be subject to escrow and holdback arrangements in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement for up to 90 days following the consummation of the Merger to fund potential payment obligations of former equityholders of Wandera with respect to post-closing adjustments to the Merger Consideration. Jamf has obtained representation and warranty insurance to cover, subject to certain limitations, losses resulting from potential breaches of Wandera’s representations and warranties made in the Merger Agreement.


Completion of the Merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among other things, the expiration or termination of required waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. Each party’s obligation to consummate the Merger is also subject to the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the other parties (subject to certain exceptions) and the performance in all material respects of the other parties’ respective covenants under the Merger Agreement.  The Merger Agreement contains certain customary termination rights for the Buyer and Wandera, including the right to terminate if the Merger is not consummated on or before August 3, 2021.


The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Merger Agreement have been made solely for the benefit of the parties thereto. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (1) have been made only for purposes of the Merger Agreement, (2) have been qualified by confidential disclosures made in confidential disclosure schedules delivered in connection with the Merger Agreement, (3) are subject to materiality qualifications contained in the Merger Agreement which may differ from what may be viewed as material by investors, (4) were made only as of the date of the Merger Agreement, the closing date of the Merger or such other date as is specified in the Merger Agreement, and (5) have been included in the Merger Agreement for the purpose of allocating risk between the contracting parties rather than establishing matters as fact. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the parties to the Merger Agreement 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 Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in Jamf’s public disclosures.


The foregoing description of the Merger and the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement. A copy of the Merger Agreement will be filed with Jamf’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.






Jamf currently intends to finance the Merger with a combination of cash and debt financing. On  May 5, 2021, JAMF Holdings, Inc. (the “Borrower”), a subsidiary of Jamf, entered into (i) a commitment letter (the “Commitment Letter”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and the other commitment parties thereto (the “Commitment Parties”), pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, the Commitment Parties have committed to provide a 364-day term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $250.0 million (“Incremental Term Loan Facility”), on substantially the same terms and conditions as the Borrower’s current Credit Agreement, dated as of July 27, 2020, with the lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (the “Credit Agreement”) and (ii) an engagement letter (the “Engagement Letter”), pursuant to which the Borrower engaged JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as sole and exclusive lead arranger and bookrunner in connection with an optional alternate term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $250.0 million (the “Alternate Incremental Term Loan Facility”). The funding of the Incremental Term Loan Facility or Alternate Incremental Term Loan Facility, as applicable, provided for by the Commitment Letter or Engagement Letter, as applicable, is contingent on the satisfaction of customary conditions, including the execution and delivery of definitive documentation with respect to Incremental Term Loan Facility or Alternate Incremental Term Loan Facility, as applicable, in accordance with the terms set forth in the Commitment Letter or the Engagement Letter, as applicable.

Exhibit 99.1


Jamf announces intent to acquire Wandera, furthering its leadership in Apple Enterprise Management


Wandera extends Jamf’s mobile security and access capabilities with Zero Trust Network Access, threat defense and data policy enforcement


MINNEAPOLIS – May 11, 2021 – Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, today announced it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Wandera, a leader in zero trust cloud security and access for mobile devices.


As an Apple-first provider of unified cloud security, Wandera expands Jamf’s security offering for the enterprise. Building on Jamf’s existing capabilities, Wandera adds Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), mobile threat defense and data policy features to ensure mobile workers can simply and safely access the network resources they need while complying with organizational policies and reducing mobile charges. This acquisition uniquely positions Jamf to help IT and security teams confidently protect the devices, data and applications used by a mobile workforce, while extending the intended Apple experience through the most robust and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform in the market.


“In order to lead Apple Enterprise Management and best serve the growing number of organizations using Apple at work, Jamf needs to fill the gap between what users want and what the enterprise requires,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. “The combination of Wandera and Jamf will provide our customers a single source platform that handles deployment, Application Lifecycle Management, policies, filtering, and security capabilities across all Apple devices while delivering Zero Trust Network Access for all mobile workers.”


The consumerization of IT and strong demand for Apple continues to proliferate Apple devices in the enterprise. According to IDC's 2020 U.S. enterprise survey, the average penetration of macOS devices is around 23%, compared with 17% in 2019. Additionally, iPhone devices account for 49% of the smartphone installed base among enterprises, while iPad devices make up the majority of tablets used in business. As a result of this growth, Apple devices are now a bigger target for security threats. Additionally, according to Gartner’s Market Guide for ZNTA, “recent movements to largely remote workforces have accelerated the adoption of ZTNA to address hardware and bandwidth limitations of traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) access.” In the report, Gartner predicts that by 2023, 60% of enterprises will phase out their VPNs in favor of a ZTNA solution.


“Jamf and Wandera are able to take advantage of the immense market opportunity to shape the future of the zero trust cloud. We are thrilled to be joining forces with the leader in Apple Enterprise Management,” said Eldar Tuvey, CEO and co-founder, Wandera. “We founded Wandera to make security simple in a zero trust world. By combining with Jamf, we can offer our customers a truly integrated access and security platform, with exceptional ease of use, speed, scalability and reliability. Together, we accelerate our customers’ ability to seamlessly and securely keep their employees connected, no matter where they are.”




Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Jamf will acquire Wandera for total consideration of $400 million, subject to customary adjustments as set forth in the merger agreement. The total consideration consists of an initial payment of $350 million at close and deferred consideration of $50 million to be paid in $25 million increments on October 1, 2021 and December 15, 2021. The transaction is expected to close during the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including required U.S. regulatory approvals. Until close, the companies will continue to operate independently.


Jamf currently intends to finance the acquisition with a combination of cash on hand and debt financing.


For more information on the acquisition, please see the accompanying pdf.


Jamf will be discussing the acquisition along with its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 on its previously scheduled earnings conference call and webcast scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Central Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) on May 11, 2021.


Parties in the United States and Canada can access the call by dialing +1 (833) 519-1319, and international parties can access the call by dialing +1 (914) 800-3885.  The webcast will be accessible on Jamf’s investor relations website at https://ir.jamf.com.
