TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crosswinds Holdings Inc. (“Crosswinds” or the “Company” (TSX:CWI) is pleased to announce that following the satisfaction of all closing conditions, including receipt of regulatory approval from the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, it has completed the previously announced sale of all of its interests in Monarch Delaware Holdings LLC (“Monarch”) to an affiliate of its joint venture partner, Federated National Holding Company (“Federated National” or the “Purchaser”) (the “Transaction”). 

The interests in Monarch were sold by Crosswinds’ majority owned subsidiary, Crosswinds Investor Monarch LP (“CIML”), for an aggregate purchase price of USD$12,282,000 paid to CIML. Crosswinds, in its capacity as a majority limited partner of CIML, received approximately USD$10,500,000 of those proceeds.

Upon closing of the Transaction, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Crosswinds Re, entered into a right of first refusal (“ROFR”) agreement permitting it to write up to USD$10,000,000 of limit on reinsurance business with Federated National, at market terms and rates, during 2018. The agreement terminates on December 31, 2018 and its economic benefit to Crosswinds Re will depend upon market conditions.

In addition, Crosswinds AUM LLC (“Crosswinds AUM”), another of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, entered into an agreement with Federated National for Crosswinds AUM to consult on insurance market and general operational matters (the “Consulting Agreement”).  The Consulting Agreement will be in effect until it terminates on December 31, 2018.  Crosswinds AUM is entitled under the terms thereof to earn USD$300,000 in fees (less any fees already earned by it during 2018 under the existing investment advisory agreement in place between Crosswinds AUM LLC, Monarch and certain affiliates of Monarch, which agreement was terminated effective on Closing).  

Copies of the ROFR agreement, the Consulting Agreement and the purchase agreement for the Transaction will all be available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com and any summary herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable agreements.
