Altisource Asset Management Corporation Repurchases Preferred Shares in Global Settlement With Luxor Capital

CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, January 16, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altisource Asset Management Corporation ("AAMC" or the "Company") (NYSE American: AAMC) announces that it has settled litigation with Luxor Capital Group, LP and related entities (collectively "Luxor") in respect of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Preferred Shares"), as well as separate litigation with former AAMC director Nathanel Redleaf.

Settlement Highlights

  • Luxor surrenders all 144,212 of its Preferred Shares, thereby extinguishing all rights under the related Securities Purchase Agreement and Certificate of Designations.

  • The Company provides the following consideration to Luxor:

  • A $1,000,000 cash payment now, plus

  • Three Promissory Notes in the following amounts and durations:

  • $2,000,000 due in three years;

  • $3,000,000 due in five years; and

  • $6,000,000 due in eight years

Each Note bears annual interest at either 7.5% on a cash basis or 10% paid-in-kind ("PIK") basis, at the election of AAMC. The Company shall refrain from making common stock repurchases or issuing dividends at any time the PIK option is in effect and is subject to certain other covenants.

 

  • AAMC shall also pay Luxor 50% of any proceeds received in respect of the Company’s damage claims in litigation brought by Erbey Holding Corporation pending in USVI Superior Court with case number SX-2018-CV-146, up to a cumulative payout cap of $50,000,000.

  • The Parties agree to dismissals of their litigation with prejudice and exchange mutual releases of all claims with no admission by any Party of liability, violation of law or wrongdoing.

As a result of the settlement, which has the effect of increasing the Company’s Stockholders’ Equity to an amount exceeding $6,000,000, the New York Stock Exchange informed the Company that its November 30, 2023 notice of intent to delist the Company’s common stock would be rescinded.
