(Merger Sub) and Stevens Holding Company, Inc. (Newco), pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement and a Separation and Distribution Agreement, dated March 7, 2018, among Altra, Fortive and Newco, (1) Fortive will transfer certain assets, liabilities and entities within its Automation & Specialty platform, but excluding its Hengstler and Dynapar businesses (such businesses to be transferred, the A&S Business) to Newco, (2) Fortive will distribute to its stockholders all of the issued and outstanding shares of Newco common stock held by Fortive by way of an exchange offer or a combination of an exchange offer and a pro rata dividend and (3) Merger Sub will merge with and into Newco, with Newco as the surviving corporation, and the issued and outstanding shares of Newco common stock will be converted into shares of Altra common stock (the Merger).
On August 8, 2018, a purported class action was filed against Altra and each of the members of its board of directors and Fortive in the Superior Court of Norfolk County, Massachusetts, by an individual who purports to be a stockholder of Altra. In connection with the complaint, the plaintiff, among other things, filed a motion to preliminarily enjoin the stockholders vote on matters related to the Merger at the special meeting of stockholders of Altra (the special meeting).

On September 13, 2018, the plaintiff and all defendants named in the complaint, by and through their respective counsel, agreed to dismiss the class action without prejudice.
