Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 1, 2016, Air T, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) with Sardar Biglari, Biglari Capital Corp. and The Lion Fund II, L.P. (collectively, the “Biglari Group”), pursuant to which the Company purchased 329,738 shares of common stock, par value $0.25 (the “Common Stock”), of the Company for $24.01 per share (the “Per Share Purchase Price”), resulting in an aggregate purchase price of $7,917,009.38. The Per Share Purchase Price is equal, and was determined by reference, to the volume-weighted average price of the Common Stock for the thirty (30) trading days preceding the date of the Agreement.

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, for a period of four years following the date of the Agreement, each member of the Biglari Group agreed to customary standstill restrictions (including customary provisions regarding matters submitted to shareholders and other governance matters), and the parties to the Agreement agreed to abide by customary non-disparagement provisions in connection with the parties’ relationship with the Company.

Under the terms of the Agreement, each party to the Agreement has released each other party to the Agreement from all claims that the releasing party has, had or may have against the released party that relate to the investment by The Lion Fund II, L.P. in the Company. The Lion Fund II, L.P. also withdrew its request received by the Company on June 8, 2016 to inspect certain of the Company’s records.

The full text of the Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description does not purport to be a complete summary of the terms of the Agreement and is qualified by reference to Exhibit 10.1.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
