This Amendment No. 2 (“Amendment No. 2”) amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 23, 2019 (the “Original Schedule 13D”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 to the Original Schedule 13D filed on July 30, 2019 (“Amendment No. 1”) (Amendment No. 1 and the Original Schedule 13D as amended hereby, the “Schedule 13D”), with respect to the shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), of FedNat Holding Company, a Florida corporation (the “Company” or the “Issuer”). This Amendment No. 2 amends Items 4, 6 and 7 as set forth below. Capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined in this Amendment No. 2 have the meanings set forth in the Original Schedule 13D.

 

Item 4.

PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION

 

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented with the following:

 

On August 9, 2019 (the “Effective Date”), Capital Returns Management, LLC (“CRM”) entered into a cooperation agreement with the Company (the “Cooperation Agreement”). Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement, the parties agreed, among other things, that the Company will expand its board of directors (the “Board”) from seven to nine seats and appoint David Warner Michelson as a director in the class that is up for election at the Company’s 2019 annual meeting of shareholders of the and David Patterson as a director in the class that is up for election at the Company’s 2020 annual meeting of shareholders (each of Mr. Michelson and Mr. Patterson, a “New Independent Director”). However, the appointment as directors would not be effective until the earliest of (i) written notice delivered by CRM to the Company of the receipt of approval or non-disapproval by the Louisiana Department of Insurance (the “LDI”) of the disclaimer of control filed by CRM (the “Disclaimer”), (ii) the date on which the Company is lawfully able to appoint the New Independent Directors under applicable law and (iii) 75 days after the Effective Date if the LDI has not taken any action with respect to the Disclaimer by such 75th day. Until the effective time of their appointment to the Board, the New Independent Directors will serve as non-voting Board observers. As a director, each New Independent Director would be appointed to each of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee and the Nominating Committee of the Board. CRM will have replacement rights with respect to Mr. Michelson (and consent rights with respect to Mr. Patterson) if he resigns from, refuses to serve or is unable to serve on the Board for any reason so long as CRM and its affiliates continue to beneficially own an aggregate net long position of at least 385,093 Shares (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reverse stock splits and similar events).

 

Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement, CRM agreed that, until the earlier of July 31, 2020 or the date that is 15 days prior to the beginning of the Company’s advance notice period for the nomination of directors at the 2020 annual meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Standstill Period”), CRM and its affiliates will vote their Shares in accordance with the recommendations of the Board, subject to certain exceptions. CRM also agreed that it will, within two days of the Effective Date, file a notice of dismissal without prejudice of the action filed in the Circuit Court of the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida seeking an order to compel the Company to hold its 2019 annual meeting of shareholders. The terms of the Cooperation Agreement further provide that CRM is subject to certain customary standstill provisions that apply during the Standstill Period.

 

The description of the Cooperation Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Cooperation Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit C to this Amendment No. 2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
