Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On March 23, 2017, Altisource Asset Management Corporation (the “Company”) completed the repurchase of an aggregate of 50,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock from an affiliated fund of Luxor Capital Partners Group (“Luxor”) in a block trade at a price of $52.50 per share, or an aggregate of $2.6 million, pursuant to the Company’s previously reported $300.0 million stock repurchase program.
Luxor may be considered a related party of the Company because Nathaniel Redleaf, a Luxor partner, is a member of the Board of Directors of the Company. The purchase price for the Shares was determined by the Audit Committee of the Company, with Mr. Redleaf recusing himself from the consideration and vote on the transaction. The price was negotiated with Luxor and represented a 9.4% discount to the closing share price of the Company’s common stock of $57.95 as reported by the NYSE MKT on March 22, 2017. The purchase price per share also represents a 16.7% discount to the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the previous five trading days, a 23.9% discount to the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the previous ten trading days and a 28.5% discount to the average closing price per share of the Company’s common stock for the previous 30 trading days. The repurchased Shares represented approximately 3.1% of the Company’s outstanding common stock.
Following the transaction, the Company now holds the acquired Shares as treasury shares.
Pursuant to the requirements of Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
