Why clothing sponsor was changed?

Anyone know the details on why Novak changed clothing sponsors? Usually the top pros don't do this too often. I wonder if there was some kind of a falling out or if it just came down to who pays bigger $$$.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

I don't think that was it, since Uniqlo isn't really that famous. I doubt they could pay him more than ST.

Uniqlo should be able to pay him much more $$$, they are far bigger than ST. Basically, ST was unprepared in every way possible for Novak's 2011 season, when they signed him he was floating between #3 and #4, and hardly winning anything, suddenly he went on the run and they couldn't keep up with his bonuses and demands for merchandise

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
