Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Purchase and Sale Agreement

 

On August 2, 2019, SEACOR Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), through certain subsidiaries, became the sole owner of the SEA-Vista joint venture. SEACOR Tankers II LLC (“Tankers II”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, acquired the 49% interest therein (the “Remaining SEA-Vista Interest”) that had been owned by ACP III Tankers, LLC, (“ACP”), an affiliate of Avista Capital Partners (“Avista”), pursuant to a purchase and sale agreement, dated as of August 2, 2019, by and among the Company, Tankers II and ACP a subsidiary of Avista (the “Seller” and, such agreement, the “Purchase and Sale Agreement”). As consideration for the Remaining SEA-Vista Interest, (i) the Company issued 1,500,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (“Common Stock”) to the Seller (the “Consideration Shares”) in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and (ii) Tankers II paid the Seller $105,998,082 in cash, which amount is inclusive of expenses related to the transaction.

 

Registration Rights Agreement.

 

In connection with the purchase of the Remaining SEA-Vista Interest and the issuance of the Consideration Shares, the Company and the Seller entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated August 2, 2019 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). The Registration Rights Agreement grants the holders of the Consideration Shares demand registration rights (available on or after November 1, 2019) and piggyback registration rights, in both cases subject to customary limitations.

 

Lock-Up Agreement

 

In connection with the issuance of the Consideration Shares, the Seller agreed to certain restrictions on its ability to dispose of the Consideration Shares pursuant to a Lock-Up Agreement, dated August 2, 2019, between the Company and the Seller (the “Lock-Up Agreement”). Pursuant to the Lock-Up Agreement, the Seller is prohibited from distributing the Consideration Shares to its limited partners prior to November 1, 2019 and from transferring or disposing of the Consideration Shares in any other manner on or prior to February 2, 2020. After February 2, 2020, one-third of the Consideration Shares cease to be subject to such transfer restrictions, with another one-third of the Consideration Shares ceasing to be subject to such restrictions after August 2, 2020, and the final one-third of the Consideration Shares ceasing to be subject to such restrictions after February 2, 2021. The lock-up restrictions are subject to customary exceptions detailed in the Lock-Up Agreement. Additionally, for so long as the Seller beneficially owns shares of Common Stock representing 5% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Lock-Up Agreement imposes certain standstill obligations on the Seller, including a restriction on its ability to acquire additional shares of Common Stock or to influence management of the Company.

The issuance of the Consideration Shares as described under Section 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K was effected as a private placement of securities and such description is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02

 

The issuance of the Consideration Shares was made in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). In determining that the issuance of the Consideration Shares qualified for an exemption under Section 4(a)(2), the Company relied on the following facts: (i) the Seller is an accredited investor, (ii) the Company did not use any form of general solicitation or advertising to offer the Consideration Shares and (iii) the investment intent of the Seller.
