Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


See the information set forth in Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


On August 20, 2019, 1347 Property Insurance Holdings, Inc. (the “Borrower”) entered into a $7.0 million Loan Agreement and a related Commercial Note (collectively, the “Loan Agreement”) with Hancock Whitney Bank (the “Lender”).


The Loan Agreement provides for a non-revolving line of credit of $7.0 million. The line of credit will expire on the earlier of (i) January 20, 2020, or (ii) the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Equity Purchase Agreement (as hereinafter defined). Proceeds of borrowings under the Loan Agreement may be used for providing short-term working capital to the Borrower’s subsidiaries and other general corporate purposes. The line of credit is secured by a collateral assignment of the Borrower’s right to receive cash proceeds under the Equity Purchase Agreement, dated February 25, 2019 (the "Equity Purchase Agreement"), by and among FedNat Holding Company, as Purchaser ("FedNat"), the Borrower, as Seller, and Maison Managers, Inc., Maison Insurance Company, and ClaimCor, LLC., subsidiaries of the Borrower (the "Subsidiaries"), pursuant to which the Borrower has agreed to sell the Subsidiaries to FedNat, pursuant to the terms and conditions thereof.  


Borrowings under the Loan Agreement will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to one-month ICE LIBOR (rounded up to the nearest one-eighth (1/8th) of one percent or rounded up to one-eighth (1/8th) of one percent if the reported one-month ICE LIBOR is less than zero) plus a margin of 3.00%. The initial interest rate is 5.25% per annum, to be adjusted on the first day of each calendar month. The line of credit is to be repaid in monthly payments of interest only, payable in arrears, commencing on September 1, 2019, with all principal and interest to be payable in full at maturity.


The Loan Agreement contains certain restrictive covenants customary for transactions of this type, including restrictions on liens, indebtedness, loans and guarantees, acquisitions and mergers, sales of assets, and stock repurchases.


The Loan Agreement also provides for customary events of default with corresponding grace periods, including: (1) failure to make payments under the Loan Agreement when due; (2) failure to comply with other covenants and agreements contained in the Loan Agreement; (3) breach of or default under the collateral assignment; (4) making of false or materially inaccurate representations and warranties; (5) certain defaults under other debt obligations of the Borrower; (6) money judgments, material adverse changes or events regarding the validity of the Loan Agreement or other loan documents; and (7) certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency affecting the Borrower. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, the Lender may declare the entire unpaid principal balance and accrued unpaid interest immediately due and payable and/or exercise any and all remedial and other rights under the Loan Agreement. The default interest rate is 18%, subject to the maximum rate permitted by law.


The foregoing description of the Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Loan Agreement and related Commercial Note, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
