Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On November 10, 2022, Two Harbors Investment Corp. (“Two Harbors,” “we,” “our” or “us”) entered into an equity distribution agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with JMP Securities LLC (the “Placement Agent”). In accordance with the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement, we may offer and sell up to 11,000,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), from time to time through the Placement Agent.

 

Sales of the Shares, if any, may be made in negotiated transactions or transactions that are deemed to be “at the market” offerings as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including sales made directly on the New York Stock Exchange or sales made to or through a market maker other than on an exchange. The Placement Agent will make all sales using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed upon terms between the Placement Agent and Two Harbors. The Placement Agent will be entitled to total compensation of up to 2% of the gross proceeds from the sale of the Shares sold under the Equity Distribution Agreement.

 

The Shares will be issued pursuant to Two Harbors’ shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-253606) (the “Registration Statement”), including the prospectus, dated February 26, 2021, and the prospectus supplement, dated November 10, 2022, as the same may be amended or supplemented.

 

Two Harbors has agreed to indemnify the Placement Agent against certain specified types of liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments that the Placement Agent may be required to make because of those liabilities. The Placement Agent or its respective affiliates have engaged and may in the future engage in various financing, commercial banking and investment banking serves with, and have provided and may in the future provide financial advisory services to, Two Harbors and its affiliates for which they have received or may receive customary fees and expenses.

 

The foregoing description of the Equity Distribution Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the entire Equity Distribution Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1, and incorporated herein by reference.

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there have been any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.
