The name of the issuer is Horizon Global Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). The address of the Issuer’s principal executive offices is 2600 W. Big Beaver Road, Suite 555, Troy, Michigan 48084. This Schedule 13D relates to the Issuer’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”).
Item 2.
Identity and Background
(a)    This Schedule 13D is being filed by (i) Harry Wilson (“Wilson”), (ii) Travis Nelson (“Nelson”), (iii) Resurgent Capital, LLC (“Resurgent”), a Delaware limited liability company, the managers of which are Wilson and Nelson, (iv) and Eclipse Investors LLC (“Eclipse” and collectively with Wilson, Nelson and Resurgent, the “Reporting Persons”), a New York limited liability company, the sole member of which is Nelson. The Reporting Persons have entered into a Joint Filing Agreement, dated as of August 30, 2019, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 1 to this Schedule 13D, and which is incorporated herein by reference.
(b)    The business address of Wilson and Resurgent is MAEVA Group, LLC, 360 Hamilton Avenue, 4th Floor, White Plains, New York 10601. The business address of Nelson and Eclipse is Eclipse Investors LLC, 182 W. 82nd Street, Apt. THW, New York, New York 10024.
(c)    Wilson is currently the founder and chief executive officer of MAEVA Group, LLC, a turnaround and restructuring firm, and a member of the Issuer’s board of directors. Nelson is an individual investor. Resurgent was formed by Wilson and Nelson to invest in marketable securities, including the Shares. Eclipse is a single-member limited liability company formed by Nelson to invest in marketable securities.
(d)    Within the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons has been convicted in any criminal proceedings.
(e)    Within the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.
(f)    Wilson and Nelson are citizens of the United States of America. Resurgent was organized in Delaware. Eclipse was organized in New York.
Item 3.

The Shares purchased by the Reporting Persons were purchased from personal and/or internal funds.
Item 4.
Purpose of the Transaction

(a) Wilson directly owns 755,291 Shares. Nelson indirectly owns 157,540 Shares. Resurgent directly owns 401,770 Shares. Eclipse directly owns 157,540 Shares. Because Wilson and Nelson are the managers of Resurgent, they have beneficial ownership of the Shares owned by Resurgent. Because Nelson is the sole member of Eclipse, he has beneficial ownership of the Shares owned by Eclipse.
For his service as a member of the Issuer’s board of directors, Wilson was granted a restricted stock unit award covering 44,199 Shares on May 15, 2019. However, the restricted stock unit award does not vest until the first anniversary of grant and, therefore, such Shares are not included in the number of Shares owned by Wilson indicated above.
The Reporting Persons may be deemed to constitute a group for purposes of Section 13(d) or Section 13(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, by virtue of the formation of Resurgent and the acquisition of Shares by Resurgent. Accordingly, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own more than 5% of the Issuer’s outstanding Shares.
(b) The information provided in Item 5(a) of this Schedule 13D and in Items 7 through 11 of the cover pages is incorporated herein by reference.
