Item 8.01 Other Events.

On September 27, 2022, the parties to the litigation styled Fryman v. Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc., No. 1:18-cv-01640 (N.D. Ill.), in which the plaintiffs have asserted claims under the federal securities laws against Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) and two of its executive officers on behalf of a putative class of purchasers of the Company’s securities, reached an agreement in principle to settle the action for a settlement payment of $5 million to be paid by the Company’s insurers. The settlement is subject to the negotiation and execution of a definitive stipulation of settlement and approval by the court after providing notice to members of the putative class. The defendants deny that they committed any violation of law or engaged in any wrongdoing with respect to any of the matters alleged in the complaint.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K includes forward-looking statements and information within the meaning of the federal securities laws regarding the Company and its businesses. Such statements are based on the current expectations, estimates, projections, and assumptions made by management. The words “anticipate,” “expect,” “believe,” “may,” “should,” “estimate,” “project,” “outlook,” “forecast” or similar words are used to identify such forward looking information. The forward-looking events and circumstances discussed in this report may not occur and could differ materially as a result of known and unknown risk factors and uncertainties affecting the Company, including risks regarding the effects and duration of the COVID-19 outbreak, the insurance industry, economic factors, and the equity markets generally and the other risk factors discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 and subsequent periodic reports. Many of these uncertainties and risks are difficult to predict and beyond management’s control. No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed. Except as required by applicable securities laws, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and the Company and its subsidiaries undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
