OCH-ZIFF CAPITAL MANAGEMENT GROUP LLC (NYSE:OZM) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Och-Ziff Holding Corporation and Och-Ziff Holding LLC (collectively, the “General Partners”), as the general partners of OZ Management LP, OZ Advisors LP and OZ Advisors II LP (collectively, the “Operating Partnerships”), previously entered into a Relinquishment Agreement with Daniel S. Och and certain family trusts over which Mr. Och has investment control (the “Och Trusts”) dated as of March 1, 2017 (the “Relinquishment Agreement”). to the Relinquishment Agreement, Mr. Och and the Och Trusts agreed to cancel, in the aggregate, 30.0 million of their vested Class A common units in the Operating Partnerships. The Relinquishment Agreement also provided that if any of the Class D common units in the Operating Partnerships granted to James S. Levin on March 1, 2017 were forfeited, such forfeited units would be reallocated to Mr. Och and the Och Trusts to the terms of the limited partnership agreements of the Operating Partnerships, up to an aggregate amount of 30.0 million common units in each of the Operating Partnerships (one common unit in each Operating Partnership, collectively, a “Group Unit”).
Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC (the “Company”) and the parties to the Relinquishment Agreement have entered into a Cancellation, Reallocation and Grant Agreement, dated March 28, 2018 and effective as of February 16, 2018, which replaced and superseded the Relinquishment Agreement in its entirety (the “Reallocation Agreement”). to the Reallocation Agreement, Mr. Och and the Och Trusts relinquished their rights to receive the 30.0 million Group Units forfeited by Mr. Levin described above, which have been canceled, and Mr. Och will instead have the right to direct the General Partners to issue, for strategic hires and/or other business initiatives, up to 27.0 million Group Units (the “Reallocable Group Units”). Under the Reallocation Agreement, as an alternative to making grants of any number of such Reallocable Group Units, Mr. Och may determine to make awards of an equivalent number of Class A restricted share units under the Company’s 2013 Incentive Plan. To the extent that the Compensation Committee does not approve any such issuances or awards, an equal number of Group Units shall be reallocated to Mr. Och and the Och Trusts.
