Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Charter Amendment

On December 8, 2017, WMIH Corp. (the “Company”) filed a certificate of amendment (the “Charter Amendment”) to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Existing Charter” and, as amended by the Charter Amendment, the “Amended Charter”). The Charter Amendment becomes effective at 12:00 a.m., New York City time, on January 5, 2018 (the “Amendment Effective Time”), unless a Qualified Acquisition (as defined in the Existing Charter) has occurred prior to such time, in which case, the Amended Charter will have no force or effect.

The Charter Amendment, which was approved by the holders of 308,731, or approximately 51%, of the 600,000 issued and outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock, amends certain terms of the Company’s issued and outstanding 3.00% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock”), to, among other things:

 

    extend the Mandatory Redemption Date (as defined in the Existing Charter) from January 5, 2018 to October 5, 2019 (subject to a six month extension in accordance with the terms of the Charter Amendment);

 

    amend the Conversion Price (as defined in the Existing Charter) relating to a Mandatory Conversion (as defined in the Existing Charter) of the Series B Preferred Stock to $1.35 per share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”);

 

    change the quarterly 3.00% dividend payable in cash to a semi-annual 5.00% dividend payable in Common Stock (the “Regular Dividend”) if, as and when declared by the Company’s Board of Directors;

 

    provide for a special distribution (the “Special Distribution”) of 19.04762 shares of Common Stock per share of Series B Preferred Stock upon the closing of any Acquisition (as defined in the Amended Charter); and

 

    provide for a special stub dividend payable if, as and when declared by the Company’s Board of Directors in cash for dividends accruing on the Series B Preferred Stock payable in arrears for the period December 15, 2017 to January 4, 2018.

The foregoing description of the Charter Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Charter Amendment, which is included as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

RRA Amendment

In connection with the Charter Amendment, prior to the Amendment Effective Time, the Company has agreed to enter into a first amendment (the “RRA Amendment”) to that certain Registration Rights Agreement, dated January 5, 2015, among the Company, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (“Citi”), and KKR Capital Markets LLC (“KCM”), which is an affiliate of KKR Fund Holdings L.P. (“KKR Fund”) and KKR Wand Investors L.P. (“KKR Wand”) (the “Existing Registration Rights Agreement” and, as will be amended by the RRA Amendment, the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company will agree to use reasonable efforts to file a shelf registration statement (or, as permitted, an amendment to any existing shelf registration statement) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) as promptly as practicable after the Amendment Effective Time, but no later than June 15, 2018, with respect to (i) resales of the shares of the Series B Preferred Stock that are Transfer Restricted Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) and (ii) resales of the shares of Common Stock that are Transfer Restricted Securities and (a) issuable upon the conversion of shares of the Series B Preferred Stock, (b) issuable as a Regular Dividend and (c) issuable as a Special Distribution.

Escrow Amendment

The Escrow Amendment will amend and restate certain annexes to the Existing Escrow Agreement to reflect changes consistent with the Charter Amendment and will include a new exhibit that extends the timing of payment and reduces the aggregate amount of fees payable to Citi and KCM.


The foregoing description of the Escrow Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the form of Escrow Amendment, which is included as Exhibit 10.3 and is incorporated herein by reference.
