Form 8-K for BROWN & BROWN INC


Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On January 15, 2014, Brown & Brown, Inc. (the "Company"), a Florida corporation, Brown & Brown Acquisition Group, LLC ("Merger Sub"), a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, The Wright Insurance Group LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Wright"), and Teiva Securityholders Representative, LLC, solely in its capacity as the representative of Wright's securityholders (the "Representative"), entered into a merger agreement (the "Agreement"). The Agreement contemplates that the Merger Sub will merge with and into Wright, with Wright as the surviving corporation (the "Merger").

Immediately upon the consummation of the Merger, Wright's equity interests will be converted into the rights to receive cash equal, collectively, to $602.5 million. This amount is composed of cash payments of $587.5 million for the Programs Business, $7.5 million for Wright National Flood Insurance Company ("WNFIC") and $7.5 million for WNFIC statutory surplus. In addition, Wright's equityholders may receive additional consideration of up to $37.5 million in cash in the event of the closing of certain acquisition transactions by Wright and its affiliates (or, after the closing of the acquisition of Wright, by the Company and its affiliates) prior to July 15, 2015.

Under the Agreement, the Merger is subject to certain closing conditions including the receipt of required regulatory approvals for the transaction (including the approval of antitrust authorities necessary to complete the acquisition). In addition, the Merger is subject to approval by Wright's equityholders (which include a relatively small number investors who effectively control Wright) and this approval is anticipated to be sought later this week. If the Merger is not closed by July 15, 2014 (which may potentially be extended to October 15, 2104 if the only then-outstanding conditions are obtaining regulatory approvals), either party may terminate the Agreement.

A copy of the Agreement will be filed as an exhibit to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2014.

Other than in respect of the Agreement, the Company and the Merger Sub have no material relationship with Wright or the Representative.

This Form 8-K contains Forward Looking Statements, including those regarding the closing of the Merger. These statements are not historical facts, but instead represent only the Company's current belief regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of the Company's control. It is possible that actual events may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated events indicated in these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to those set forth in the Press Release attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
