Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Agreement and Plan of Merger

On January 11, 2018 (the “Execution Date”), ZAIS Group Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Z Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Z Acquisition”), and ZGH Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub” and together with the Company and Z Acquisition, each a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger as a subsidiary of Z Acquisition. ChristianZugel, the founder of ZAIS Group, LLC, the Company’s operating subsidiary, the Company’s Chief Investment Officer, and the chairman of the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”), is the sole managing member of Z Acquisition. In addition, Mr. Zugel is the sole trustee of the Class B Voting Trust (as defined below), which provides Mr. Zugel effective voting control over matters put to a vote of the Company’s stockholders. Z Acquisition was formed in connection with the execution of the Share Purchase Agreement (as defined below) and has limited assets. The proposed Merger is a “going private transaction” under the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules.

to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of Class A common stock (“Class A Common Stock”), other than shares (i) beneficially owned by Mr. Zugel, Z Acquisition, the members of Z Acquisition (including Mr. Zugel and Daniel Curry, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer), certain trusts for members of Mr. Zugel’s family, and Mr. Zugel’s current spouse (collectively, the “Purchaser Group”), (ii) owned by stockholders who agree with Z Acquisition to retain certain of their Class A Common Stock (“Rollover Shares”) in connection with the Merger, (iii) acquired by a holder of Class A Units (as defined below) to an exercise of “exchange rights” prior to the Closing (“Exchange Shares”), and (iv) owned by holders of Class A Common Stock who shall neither have voted in favor of the Merger nor consented thereto in writing and who shall have properly and validly perfected, and not withdrawn or lost, their statutory appraisal rights under Delaware law (such shares of Class A Common Stock, “Appraisal Shares”), will be converted into the right to receive US $4.10 per share in cash without interest (the “Merger Consideration”), subject to any required withholding taxes. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, each restricted stock unit in respect of shares of Class A Common Stock (“RSU”), whether or not vested, will be converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration multiplied by the number of shares underlying the RSU, unless the holder thereof enters into an agreement with Z Acquisition (which is approved by the Company) to have such RSUs remain outstanding.

The Purchaser Group currently collectively (i) owns approximately 3.35% of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, (ii) exercises voting control over 50% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Class B common stock (“Class B Common Stock” and together with Class A Common Stock, “Common Stock”), which, as noted above, provides the Purchaser Group effective voting control over matters put to a vote of the Company’s stockholders, and (iii) owns 25.98% of the outstanding Class A Units (“Class A Units”) of ZAIS Group Parent, LLC, the Company’s majority-owned subsidiary (“ZGP”), which Class A Units are exchangeable, under certain circumstances, for, at the Company’s option, cash, shares of Class A Common Stock (on a one-for-one basis), or a combination of the two. Shares of Class B Common Stock hold no economic interest in the Company, but shares of Class B Common Stock may, as a single class, be voted with the shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company and carry 10 votes per share. In his capacity as sole trustee of a voting trust (the “Class B Voting Trust”) that holds all of the outstanding shares of the Class B Common Stock, Mr. Zugel has voting power over the shares of Class B Common Stock held in the Class B Voting Trust.

As previously disclosed on September 5, 2017, Z Acquisition and Mr. Zugel entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (as amended and restated as of January 11, 2018, the “Share Purchase Agreement”) with Ramguard LLC (“Ramguard”) to purchase from Ramguard 6,500,000 shares of Class A Common Stock at US $4.00 per share (the “Share Purchase”). to the amended and restated Share Purchase Agreement, the purchase price for the Ramguard shares will be the same US $4.10 per share price to be paid in the merger. Once this Share Purchase is completed, Z Acquisition will own, before consummation of the Merger, approximately 44.66% of the Company’s outstanding Class A Common Stock and Purchaser Group will overall own approximately 48.01% of the outstanding Class A Common Stock, not including shares of Class A Common Stock that may be issued upon exchange of Class A Units of ZGP, which Class A Units are exchangeable under certain circumstances as described above.

Following the Merger and the Share Purchase, 50% of the outstanding equity interests in the Company will be beneficially owned by Purchaser Group and holders of Rollover Shares and Exchange Shares, the Company would cease to be registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Class A Common Stock would cease to trade on NASDAQ.

As previously disclosed, during most of 2016 and 2017, the Company explored strategic alternatives for the Company. Over this time period, the Company’s financial advisors reached out to more than 45 potential counterparties, including financial sponsors, potential strategic buyers, potential strategic sellers, and private investors. Approximately 29 parties executed non-disclosure agreements and 15 parties ultimately made proposals.

The Board (other than Mr. Zugel and Daniel Curry, each of whom recused himself from the vote of the Board), acting upon the unanimous recommendation of a special committee of independent and disinterested directors (the “Special Committee”): (i) determined that the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby (the “Contemplated Transactions”), including the Merger, are advisable and in the best interests of and fair to the Company’s stockholders, other than Purchaser Group, Ramguard, any holders of Rollover Shares or Exchange Shares, and their respective affiliates, as to whom no view was expressed, (ii) approved the Merger Agreement and the Contemplated Transactions, including the Merger, and (iii)resolved to recommend that the Company’s stockholders approve the adoption of the Merger Agreement and the Merger. In connection with making their respective recommendations and determinations, the Special Committee and the Board were provided the financial analysis of the Merger Consideration from Houlihan Lokey (“Houlihan”), which also delivered an oral opinion to the Special Committee and confirmed such opinion in writing after the execution of the Merger Agreement to the effect that, as of the date of its opinion and based on and subject to the procedures followed, assumptions made, qualifications and limitations on the review undertaken and other matters considered by Houlihan in preparing its opinion, the Merger Consideration to be received by the holders of the Company’s Class A Common Stock (other than other than shares held by the Purchaser Group, Ramguard, any holders of Rollover Shares or Exchange Shares, and their respective affiliates) to the Merger Agreement was fair to such holders, from a financial point of view.

Stockholders of the Company will be asked to vote on the adoption of the Merger Agreement at a special stockholders meeting to be held on a date to be announced. Under Delaware law and the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, the affirmative vote of the holders of the majority of the aggregate voting power of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (the “Statutory Stockholder Approval”) is required to adopt the Merger Agreement. In addition, the consummation of the Merger is subject to anon-waivablecondition that the holders of a majority of outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock not beneficially owned by any member of Purchaser Group, any director or executive officer of the Company, Ramguard, any holder of Class A Common Stock constituting Rollover Shares or Exchange Shares, or any affiliates of the foregoing persons (the “Majority of the Minority Stockholder Approval”) shall have voted in favor of the adoption of the Merger Agreement.

Each Party’s obligation to consummate the Merger is also subject to certain other conditions, including (i) obtaining the Statutory Stockholder Approval and the Majority of the Minority Stockholder Approval; (ii) the absence of any legal restraint with respect to the Merger; (iii) the Company’s obtaining an opinion from an independent appraisal or valuation firm that, after taking into account the payment of the total Merger Consideration payable in respect of all shares of Class A Common Stock and RSUs entitled to receive the Merger Consideration, the Company is solvent; (iv) the continued accuracy of the representations and warranties of Z Acquisition, in the case of the Company, and of the Company, in the case of Z Acquisition, as contained in the Merger Agreement (subject to certain qualifiers, as applicable); and (v) compliance in all material respects with the covenants and agreements contained in the Merger Agreement by Z Acquisition, in the case of the Company, and by the Company, in the case of Z Acquisition. The Company has made customary representations and warranties and covenants in the Merger Agreement. Further, the Company’s obligation to consummate the Merger is subject to additional conditions, including that (1) the Share Purchase shall have been consummated in accordance with the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement; and (2)the acquisition of additional Class A Units by Z Acquisition to the Investment Agreement (as defined below) shall have been consummated in accordance with the terms of the Investment Agreement. Z Acquisition’s obligation to consummate the Merger is also subject to additional conditions, including that (A) certain of the Company’s expenses in connection with the Merger and other Contemplated Transactions do not exceed $4,500,000; (B) the number of Appraisal Shares immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger does not exceed 500,000 shares of Class A Common Stock (other than any Appraisal Shares held by members of Purchaser Group, Ramguard, holders of Rollover Shares or Exchange Shares, or their respective affiliates); and (C) the Company shall have not suffered a material adverse effect.

The Company intends to partially fund the payment of the aggregate Merger Consideration from cash on hand. To increase the amount of cash held by the Company, immediately before the Merger, Z Acquisition intends to contribute cash to ZGP in exchange for Class A Units, which cash will then be paid to the Company by ZGP for the redemption of Class A Units held by the Company. This contribution will be effected to an Investment Agreement (as described below) between ZGP, Z Acquisition, and, for limited purposes, Mr. Zugel. The Merger is not subject to a financing condition. However, if the Company does not receive the cash to the Investment Agreement (as described below), it is unlikely the Company will be able to fund the Merger Consideration and consummate the Merger. There can be no assurance that Z Acquisition will have sufficient funds to consummate the purchase of Class A Units the Investment Agreement, and if Z Acquisition fails to perform its obligations to the Investment Agreement, as a result of Z Acquisition’s limited assets, the Company will, in such event, have limited recourse other than the ability to exercise its rights against the Covered Stockholders (as defined below) under the Support Agreement (as described below), to the extent such Covered Stockholders have breached their related obligations under the Support Agreement.

The Company is subject to customarynon-solicitationprovisions, whereby, among other things, the Company and its subsidiaries have agreed not to solicit or initiate, or knowingly facilitate or knowingly encourage the submission of, an alternative acquisition proposal. However, the Company will be able to respond to and engage in discussions of certain unsolicited acquisition proposals, subject to certain conditions, if the Board or an independent committee of the Board (including the Special Committee) determines in good faith that such proposals are or could lead to superior proposals, such proposals did not result from the Company’s material breach of its obligations under suchnon-solicitationprovisions of the Merger Agreement, and, if the Board or an independent committee of the Board (including the Special Committee) determines, after consultation with its counsel, that the failure to take action concerning such proposals could reasonably be expected to be contrary to its fiduciary duties under applicable law. The Board or an independent committee of the Board (including the Special Committee) may change its recommendation to approve the Merger if (i)in response to an intervening event either not known or the consequences of which were not foreseeable to the Special Committee on the Execution Date, the Board or an independent committee of the Board (including the Special Committee) determines, after consultation with its outside legal counsel, that the failure to take action concerning such intervening event could reasonably be expected to be contrary to its fiduciary duties under applicable law or (ii)in response to an alternative acquisition proposal, the Board or an independent committee of the Board (including the Special Committee) determines in good faith, after consultation with its financial advisor and outside legal counsel, that such acquisition proposal constitutes a superior proposal and that the failure to take such action could reasonably be expected to be contrary to its fiduciary duties under applicable law.

The Company is also subject to certain covenants regarding its operations from the Execution Date until the closing of the Merger. The Merger Agreement provides that, subject to certain exceptions, from the Execution Date until the closing of the Merger, the Company must ensure that the business and operations of the Company and each of its subsidiaries are conducted in the ordinary course of business and in accordance with past practice, and use its reasonable best efforts to maintain the Company’s assets and properties and preserve its business organization and goodwill of those having business relationships with the Company. The Company also agreed not to undertake, and to cause its subsidiaries not to undertake, certain actions, without the written consent of Z Acquisition.

The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for both Z Acquisition and the Company (with respect to the Company, only to a resolution adopted by the Special Committee), and further provides that upon the termination of the Merger Agreement under certain circumstances, the Company will be required to pay Z Acquisition and other members of Purchaser Group, as applicable, an expense reimbursement amount up to a maximum of $1,500,000. Subject to certain limitations, either the Company or Z Acquisition may terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger is not consummated by July 11, 2018 (the “Termination Date”); provided that the Company or Z Acquisition may extend the Termination Date under certain circumstances or waive certain obligations under the Merger Agreement.
