This Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 4, 2018 (the “Schedule 13D”) with respect to the common stock (the “Securities”) of Emergent Capital, Inc., a Florida corporation (the “Issuer”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined in this Amendment shall have the meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D. This Amendment amends Items 4, 6 and 7 as set forth below.

 

The Reporting Persons have updated the Beneficial Ownership information, namely the number of shares beneficially owned and the percent of the class represented thereby, in the preceding pages. Such updates are presented solely to present such information as of the date of this Amendment and reflect the change in the number of outstanding shares of common stock of the Issuer and the exercisability of warrants within 60 days of the date hereof. None of the Reporting Persons has acquired or disposed of either shares of common stock or warrants to acquire common stock of the Issuer since the filing of the Schedule 13D.

 

ITEM 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION.

 

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

 

On July 28, 2017, as part of the Closing of the Recapitalization, the Issuer issued an aggregate amount of $30.0 million of 8.5% Senior Secured Notes due 2021 (the “Senior Secured Notes”), pursuant to the Amended and Restated Indenture, dated as of July 28, 2017 (the “Senior Secured Indenture”), between the Issuer and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as Indenture Trustee (the “Trustee”). Certain investment advisory clients of Evermore Global Advisors, LLC (“Evermore”) acquired an aggregate principal amount of $21.0 million of those Senior Secured Notes.

 

A copy of the Senior Secured Indenture was filed with the SEC on August 1, 2017 as Exhibit 4.4 to the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

In December 2018, the Issuer authorized the sale and issuance to certain investors of up to $8.5 million principal amount of its Senior Secured Notes to be issued pursuant to the Senior Secured Indenture, as amended by the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of January 10, 2018 and the Second Supplemental Indenture dated as of December 10, 2018. On December 28, 2018, certain investment advisory clients of Evermore subscribed to purchase an aggregate principal amount of $5.0 million of newly-issued Senior Secured Notes for an aggregate purchase price of $3.75 million. A copy of the form of subscription agreement was filed with the SEC on January 3, 2019 as Exhibit 10.1 to the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

On December 31, 2018, the Issuer issued such notes and Evermore investment advisory clients acquired notes in an aggregate principal amount of $5 million, with Evermore Global Value Fund, a series of Evermore Funds Trust (“EGVF”), acquiring notes in the principal amount of $2,228,000 and Sirius International Insurance Corporation acquiring notes in the principal amount of $1,842,000.

 

A copy of the First Supplemental Indenture was filed with the SEC on August 20, 2018 as Exhibit 4.1 to the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the Second Supplemental Indenture was filed with the SEC on December 14, 2018 as Exhibit 10.1 to the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

For a more detailed discussion of the issuance and sale of Senior Secured Notes by the Issuer on December 31, 2018, see the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on January 3, 2019.

 

ITEM 6. CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

 

Item 6 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following:

 

See Item 4 above for a description of the Reporting Persons’ subscription agreeing to purchase an aggregate principal amount of the newly-issued Senior Secured Notes of the Issuer for an aggregate purchase price of $3.75 million.
