The disclosure set forth below under Item 1.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-Kis incorporated by reference herein.

Item 1.02.

Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously disclosed, on December 21, 2020, Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Great Outdoors Group, LLC, ("Great Outdoors Group") and Phoenix Merger Sub I, Inc., ("Merger Subsidiary"), pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Merger Subsidiary would be merged with and into the Company (the "Merger"), with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation in the Merger and a wholly owned subsidiary of Great Outdoors Group. On December 2, 2021, the Company, Great Outdoors Group and Merger Subsidiary entered into a Termination Agreement (the "Termination Agreement") under which the parties agreed to terminate the Merger Agreement effective immediately. The decision to terminate the Merger Agreement follows feedback from the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") that led the parties to believe that they would not have obtained FTC clearance to consummate the Merger. Under the Termination Agreement, Great Outdoors Group agreed to pay the Company the Parent Termination Fee (as defined in the Merger Agreement) of $55.0 million by wire transfer of immediately available funds concurrently with the execution of the Termination Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement and the Termination Agreement are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, the full text of the Merger Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-Kfiled by the Company on December 21, 2020, and the full text of the Termination Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and each of which is incorporated herein by reference.
