Item 8.01Other Events.
On December 7, 2023 James River Group Holdings, Ltd. (the “Company”) reached an agreement in principle to settle the securities class action lawsuit, Employees’ Retirement Fund of the City of Fort Worth v. James River Group Holdings, Ltd., and certain of its present and former officers, Case No. 3:21-cv-00444-DJN, pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The agreement in principle provides for a single cash payment in exchange for the release of all of the defendants from all alleged claims therein and remains subject to final documentation, court approval and other conditions. The full amount of the settlement will be paid by the Company’s insurance carriers under applicable insurance policies.
There can be no assurance that the final settlement agreement will be executed, that the settlement agreement, if executed, will include the terms and conditions currently anticipated by the Company or that such agreement will be approved by the court. A final, non-appealable closure of the litigation could take several months.
Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains certain statements that are, or may be deemed to be, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, regarding the Company’s plans, expectations, thoughts, beliefs, estimates, goals, and outlook for the future that are intended to be covered by the protections provided under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipates,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans”, “seeks” and “believes,” and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “should,” “would,” “may” and “could.” Forward-looking statements are based on management’s expectations as well as certain assumptions and estimates made by, and information available to, management at the time. Those statements are not guarantees of future results or performance and are subject to certain known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, such forward-looking statements. The risks, uncertainties, and other factors detailed from time to time in our public filings, including those included in the disclosures under the headings “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, subsequent periodic reports and future periodic reports, could affect future results and events, causing those results and events to differ materially from those views expressed or implied in the Company’s forward-looking statements. Should one or more of the foregoing risks materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results or outcomes may vary materially from those projected in, or implied by, such forward-looking statements. The Company disclaims any obligation to update, revise, or correct any forward-looking statements based on the occurrence of future events, the receipt of new information, or otherwise.
