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

On July 12, 2019 (the “Separation Date”), Robert Clemons resigned from his position as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc., (the “Company”), effective as of the Separation Date. There were no disagreements between Mr. Clemons and the Company.

Mr. Clemons entered into a Separation and Consulting Agreement with the Company on July 12, 2019 (the “Separation Agreement”) to specify the terms of his separation from the Company. Contingent upon Mr. Clemons’ execution and delivery of an effective general release of claims (the “Release”), the Separation Agreement provides that the Company will reimburse Mr. Clemons for the employer-portion of COBRA premiums for a period of up to 12 months following the Separation Date. In addition, Mr. Clemons’ unvested stock options to acquire 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock will vest and become exercisable (including previously approved awards of stock options to acquire 12,500 shares of the Company’s common stock which will be priced as of the Separation Date) and, contingent on his delivery of the Release, such options will remain exercisable through the expiration of the full original term of those stock options, as applicable. Mr. Clemons’ 46,020 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock will also vest.

In addition, Mr. Clemons has agreed to serve as a consultant to the Company on an as-needed basis regarding the Company’s business and operations, and the transition of his responsibilities as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, beginning on July 13, 2019 and continuing for a period of up to six months. For these services, Mr. Clemons will receive a consulting fee of $24,166.67 per month.

The foregoing description is qualified by reference to the full text of the Separation Agreement which will be filed as an exhibit in the Company’s next Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

A copy of the Company’s press release regarding Mr. Clemons’ departure is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
