Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Events.

On July 29, 2013, Imperial Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") executed settlement agreements to settle previously disclosed purported class action litigation, asserting claims under Sections 11, 12 and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, certain derivative shareholder demands (together, with the class action litigation, the "Shareholder Action") and an insurance coverage declaratory relief complaint filed by the Company's primary director and officer insurance liability carrier (together, with the Shareholder Action, the "Actions"). A more detailed description of the Actions and the consideration for the settlements is included in Part II, Item 1, "Litigation" and in Note 15 "Commitments and Contingencies" of the Company's Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Upon the effectiveness of the settlement agreements, full and complete releases will be provided to the Company as well as to the individual defendants named in the Actions. All three settlement agreements are contingent upon the effectiveness of all of the other settlements, and the proposed Shareholder Action settlements are each subject to preliminary and final court approval. Final court approval of the Shareholder Action settlements are expected by early-2014 but could be delayed by appeals or other proceedings. In addition, the Company has the right to terminate the settlement agreements if more than a certain percentages of class members elect to opt-out of the class action settlement.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT - Certain information in this Current Report on Form 8-K is forward-looking, including our projections as to the timing of final court approval of the settlements of the Shareholder Action. Forward-looking information is based on management's estimates, assumptions and projections, and is subject to significant uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control. Important risk factors could cause actual future results and other future events to differ materially from those currently estimated by management, including, but not limited to: obtaining court approval of the proposed settlements, the number of plaintiffs who opt-out of the proposed class action settlement and whether any proposed Shareholder Action settlement is appealed.
