Introductory Note
 
As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by SEACOR Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or “SEACOR”), on December 7, 2020 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), SEACOR entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) on December 4, 2020, among Safari Parent, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), Safari Merger Subsidiary, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), and SEACOR. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, on December 18, 2020, Merger Sub commenced a tender offer (“Offer”) to purchase all of the outstanding shares of the common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (“Shares”), at a price of $41.50 per Share, net to the holder in cash, without interest, (the “Offer Price”) and subject to any applicable withholding of taxes in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement.
 
Item 1.01.         Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On April 11, 2021, SEACOR entered into the First Amendment to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement Amendment”), among Parent, Merger Sub and SEACOR. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement Amendment, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, the parties thereto agreed (i) to extend the End Date (as defined in the Merger Agreement) from April 5, 2021 to April 16, 2021 and (ii) for Merger Sub to pay SEACOR an extension fee of $1,250,000 per each calendar day that the Offer is extended from the last scheduled extension of April 9, 2021, for a total amount of $8,750,000 if the Offer is extended through April 16, 2021.
 
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements
 
This Current Report on Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Certain statements discussed in this communication as well as in other reports, materials and oral statements that SEACOR releases from time to time constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Generally, words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “believe,” “plan,” “target,” “forecast” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, including statements about the potential benefits of the proposed transaction, the prospective performance and outlook of the surviving company’s business, performance and opportunities, the ability of the parties to complete the proposed transaction and the expected timing of completion of the proposed transaction. Such forward-looking statements concern management’s expectations, strategic objectives, business prospects, anticipated economic performance and financial condition and other similar matters. Forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain and subject to a variety of assumptions, risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated or expected by management of SEACOR. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual events or results may differ significantly from these statements. Actual events or results are subject to significant known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors, including (i) uncertainties as to the timing and expected financing of the tender offer; (ii) the risk that the proposed transaction may not be completed, or if it is completed, that it will close in a timely manner; (iii) the possibility that competing offers or acquisition proposals for SEACOR will be made; (iv) uncertainty surrounding how many of the SEACOR’s stockholders will tender their shares in the tender offer; (v) the possibility that any or all of the various conditions to the consummation of the tender offer may not be satisfied or waived; (vi) the possibility of business disruptions due to transaction-related uncertainty and the response of business partners to the announcement, including customers; (vii) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement; (viii) the risk that stockholder litigation in connection with the proposed transaction may result in significant costs of defense, indemnification and liability; (ix) risks relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the volatility the pandemic has caused in the capital markets and the effects it has had and could continue to have on the global economy and (x) various other matters and factors discussed in Item 1A (Risk Factors) of SEACOR’s Annual report on Form 10-K and other reports filed by SEACOR with the SEC. It should be understood that it is not possible to predict or identify all such factors. Consequently, the preceding should not be considered to be a complete discussion of all potential risks or uncertainties. Given these factors, investors and analysts should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of the document in which they are made. SEACOR disclaims any obligation or undertaking to provide any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statement to reflect any change in SEACOR’s expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which the forward-looking statement is based, except as required by law. It is advisable, however, to consult any further disclosures SEACOR makes on related subjects in its filings with the SEC, including Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K (if any). These statements constitute SEACOR’s cautionary statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
