Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 3, 2013, Aaron’s, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a discounted share buyback agreement (the “Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells Fargo”) to repurchase $125 million (the “Repurchase Price”) of shares of the Company’s common stock.  The Company is repurchasing shares under the Agreement as part of its previously announced share repurchase program.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company paid the Repurchase Price to Wells Fargo on December 4, 2013, using cash on hand, for a number of shares of common stock at a per share price equal to the discounted average of the volume-weighted average prices per share of the Company’s common stock during the Agreement’s valuation period. The valuation period began on December 4, 2013, and is expected to end no later than May 2014. Certain events, such as market disruption events or regulatory disruption events, may result in the valuation period being extended.

Wells Fargo has made an initial delivery to the Company of 3,502,627 shares of the Company’s common stock, which is currently estimated to be approximately 80% of the total number of shares to be repurchased under the Agreement. At the end of the valuation period, upon final settlement of the Agreement, the Company may be entitled to receive additional shares of the Company’s common stock from Wells Fargo or, under certain circumstances specified in the Agreement, the Company may be required to deliver shares of the Company’s common stock or remit a settlement amount in cash, at the Company’s option, to Wells Fargo.
The Agreement is subject to terms customary for similar agreements, including terms providing for the effect of extraordinary corporate transactions and setting forth the circumstances under which the Agreement may be terminated early.

From time to time, Wells Fargo and/or its affiliates have directly and indirectly engaged, and may engage in the future, in investment and/or commercial banking transactions with the Company for which they have received, or may receive, customary compensation, fees and expense reimbursement.

Statements in this Current Report regarding the Company that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. For these statements, the Company claims the protection of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Statements in this Current Report that are “forward-looking” include without limitation the results of the settlement of the Agreement, including the final number of shares that may be purchased pursuant to the Agreement, and whether Wells Fargo may ultimately deliver additional shares to the Company, or whether the Company may instead be obligated to deliver shares or make a cash payment to Wells Fargo.

Item 7.01    Regulation FD Disclosure.

The Company issued a press release on December 4, 2013 concerning the Agreement and the related repurchase program.  The press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
