The information set forth below in Item 8.01 of this Current Report with respect to the issuance of the Merger Consideration (as defined below) and PIK Loan Consideration (as defined below) is incorporated by reference herein.

The Merger Consideration and PIK Loan Consideration was issued only to accredited investors in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided under Section 4(a)(2) and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) as a transaction not requiring registration under Section 5 of the Securities Act.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On December 31, 2021, pursuant an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) among SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), SEACOR Offshore OSV LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”) and SEACOR OSV PARTNERS I LP., a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), the Partnership merged with and into Merger Sub with Merger Sub surviving the merger (the “Merger”). As consideration for the Merger, the Company issued the Partnership’s limited partners (other than the Company and its subsidiaries) an aggregate of 531,872 shares of common stock of the Company, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) (the “Merger Consideration”). The Merger became effective upon the filing of the certificate of merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on December 31, 2021.

As a result of the Merger, the five 201’, 1,900 tons deadweight capacity, platform supply vessels (“PSVs”) owned by the Partnership are now 100% owned by the Company, bringing the Company’s owned PSV fleet to 20. Of the five PSVs previously owned by the Partnership, three are U.S. flagged and currently located in the Gulf of Mexico, and two are Marshall Island flagged and currently located in the Middle East. As of December 31, 2021, these five PSVs have an average age of seven years.

In connection with the Merger, the Company and Merger Sub assumed and guaranteed (such assumption and guarantee, the “Assumption and Guarantee”) approximately $18,050,000 of the Partnership’s third-party indebtedness outstanding under the amended and restated senior secured term loan credit facility agreement dated as of September 28, 2018 (as amended, restated, amended and restated or otherwise modified, the “Credit Facility”), by and among the Partnership and lenders and other parties thereto. The Credit Facility requires quarterly principal payments of $500,000. Interest accrues under the Credit Facility at a rate of Term SOFR (as defined in the Credit Facility) plus 4.68% plus Mandatory Costs (as defined in the Credit Facility), if applicable. The Credit Facility matures on December 31, 2023 and may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an event of default.

In connection with the consummation of the Merger, the Partnership settled all amounts and other obligations outstanding under the Subordinated PIK Loan Agreement, dated September 28, 2018 (the “PIK Loan Agreement”), as amended by the amendment thereto dated December 22, 2021 (the “Amendment”) by issuing the former lenders an aggregate of 1,036,063 shares of Common Stock (the “PIK Loan Consideration”) as contemplated by the Amendment.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
