Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Offices; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On April 22, 2021, Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) granted an aggregate of 1,016,000 options (“Options”) with an exercise price of $0.49 per common share of the Company to directors and managers, including each of Scott Wollney, Paul Romano and Joseph Shugrue, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, respectively (each such individual, a “Named Executive”). This exercise price is the average of the high bid and low asked prices on the date of the grant quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board Service.

The individual Option grant for each Named Executive is as follows:
Executive Option Grant Amount
Mr. Wollney 175,000 Shares
Mr. Romano 115,000 Shares
Mr. Shugrue 100,000 Shares

In addition to the named officers, an aggregate of 255,000 Options were granted to independent directors and an aggregate of 371,000 Options were granted to management employees other than the Named Executives above. The Options granted to management shall vest in three equal installments, with each installment vesting on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd anniversary of the date of the grant. The Options granted to independent directors vested immediately upon the date of the grant. The Options will expire on the 7th anniversary of the date of the grant. In the event of a change of control of the Company, or should a director or employee’s service with the Company be terminated other than for cause or voluntary resignation, any unvested Options will immediately vest.

All grants are made pursuant to the Company’s 2013 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) as previously approved by shareholders, and the description set forth herein is qualified in its entirety by the terms of such Plan.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Board of Directors of Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) has determined to hold the Company’s annual general meeting of shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) on Monday, July 12, 2021 at a time and place to be specified in the Company’s proxy materials for the Annual Meeting.

Because the scheduled date of the Annual Meeting is more than 30 days after the anniversary date of the Company’s 2018 annual general meeting of shareholders, prior deadlines regarding the submission of shareholder proposals in connection with the Annual Meeting are no longer applicable. Pursuant to Rule 14a-5(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company is providing notice of certain revised deadlines for the submission of shareholder proposals in connection with the Annual Meeting. In order for a shareholder proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act (“Rule 14a-8”) to be considered timely for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement and form of proxy for the Annual Meeting, such proposal must be received by the Company by May 3, 2021. The Company has determined this to be a reasonable time prior to the printing and mailing of our definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting. In addition, in order for a shareholder proposal made other than pursuant to Rule 14a-8 to be considered timely, such proposal must also be received by the Company by May 3, 2021. Shareholders should submit proposals to the Company’s executive offices, 953 American Lane, 3rd Floor, Schaumburg, Illinois 60173, Attention: Scott Wollney. The Company reserves the right to reject, rule out of order or take other appropriate action with respect to any proposal that does not comply with these and other applicable requirements.
