Waiver & Release of Claims

Investor Relations Form

  • Although most public company merger transactions generate litigation, BBX Capital and BFC do not want to be in the position of paying or issuing the merger consideration to shareholders of BBX Capital while continuing to be subject to the risk of litigation from such shareholders. Accordingly, BBX Capital’s board of directors and special committee and BFC’s board of directors determined that it was advisable that the merger be subject to the closing condition described below.

    Unless waived by BFC and BBX Capital, it is a condition to closing the merger that, among other things, (i) any litigation or threatened litigation against BFC, BBX Capital or their affiliates relating to the merger shall be resolved to the satisfaction of BFC and BBX Capital or (ii) the holders of at least 2,250,000 shares of BBX Capital’s Class A Common Stock shall execute and deliver to BBX Capital this Waiver and Release of Claims. Additional information regarding this closing condition and the other conditions to closing the merger is contained in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus of BBX Capital and BFC relating to the merger.
