This Amendment No. 14 to Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 14”) amends the Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D filed by the Reporting Persons on June 18, 2015 (as amended, the “Schedule 13D” or this “Statement”), with respect to the Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of 1347 Property Insurance Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment No. 14 shall have the meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D. Except as amended and supplemented by this Amendment No. 14, the Schedule 13D remains unchanged.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

The total cost for purchasing the Common Stock reported as owned by the Reporting Persons, including brokerage commissions, was approximately as follows: FGPM, $4,080,175; FGAA, $38,969; FGGM, $33,118; FAFI, $6,060,061; FGIH, $3,740,789; BTN, $7,711,566; Mr. Cerminara, $26,003; and Mr. Johnson, $27,746. The source of these funds was working capital or personal funds, as applicable. The total cost for purchases of Common Stock by CWA’s customers was approximately $485,977. The source of funds for the shares of Common Stock acquired for the accounts of CWA’s customers were funds of such customers.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

(a) The Reporting Persons beneficially own in the aggregate 2,999,068 shares of Common Stock, which represents approximately 49.4% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock and includes 100,000 shares of Common Stock subject to a call option.

Each of Fundamental Global Investors, LLC and Messrs. Beynon, Ferguson, Cerminara and Johnson expressly disclaims beneficial ownership of such shares.

 

Each percentage ownership of shares of Common Stock set forth in this Statement is based on the 6,068,106 shares of Common Stock reported by the Company as outstanding as of March 25, 2020 in its annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 2020.

 

The Reporting Persons also beneficially own in the aggregate 34,620 shares of the Company’s 8.00% Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series A, $25.00 par value per share (the “Preferred Stock”), which represent approximately 4.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock is non-voting and non-convertible. FGPM directly holds all of the shares of Preferred Stock. In addition, for the accounts of individual investors, CWA also holds 33,519 shares of Preferred Stock, including 44 shares of Preferred Stock held by Mr. Cerminara in a joint account with his spouse.

 

(c) The following transactions have been effected by FGPM and FAFI in the Common Stock since the filing of Amendment No. 13 to the Schedule 13D/A with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 16, 2020: on April 16, 2020, FGPM acquired 32,000 shares at $4.75 per share; on April 16, 2020, FGPM and FAFI acquired 15,012 and 12 shares, respectively, at a weighted average price of $4.7499 per share; and on April 17, 2020, FGPM acquired 23,400 shares at a weighted average price of $4.7807 per share Each of these transactions was effected through the open market. The Reporting Persons undertake to provide to the Company, any security holder of the Company, or the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, upon request, full information regarding the number of shares purchased at each separate price.
