Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On March 13, 2013, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Acquisition (the “Acquisition Agreement”) with Trident Manufacturing, Inc., a Utah corporation, based in Salt Lake City, Utah (“Trident”), and the shareholders of Trident, whereby we acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding common stock shares of Trident in exchange for 1,600,000 shares of our restricted shares of common stock (the “Acquisition”).  Upon completion of the Acquisition, Trident will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Probe Manufacturing, Inc.

The Acquisition Agreement contains representations and warranties customary for transactions of this type. Trident has agreed to various customary covenants and agreements, including, among others, agreements to conduct its business in the ordinary course during the period between the execution of the Acquisition Agreement and the closing date which is scheduled to be completed by no later than March 20, 2013, not to engage in certain kinds of transactions during this period, and to convene and hold a meeting of Trident’s shareholder for the purpose of obtaining the shareholder approval.

Completion of the Acquisition is subject to certain conditions, including, among others: (i) Trident’s shareholder holder approval; (ii) the approval by both companies board of directors; (iii) the entry into employment agreements with two of Trident’s executives; (iv) the approval from all necessary state and federal regulatory bodies; and (v) entry into a stock exchange/purchase agreement between us and the Trident shareholders. Failure to comply with the closing conditions could result in the termination of the Acquisition Agreement. Completion of the Acquisition is anticipated to occur by March 20, 2013, although in light of the necessary approvals, the occurrence of the closing conditions and entry into the related agreements there can be no assurance the Acquisition will occur within the expected timeframe or at all.
