OneMain Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Springleaf Financial Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Selling Stockholder”), confirm their respective agreements with you and each of the other Underwriters named in Schedule A hereto (collectively, the “Underwriters,” which term shall also include any underwriter substituted as hereinafter provided in Section 10 hereof), for whom you are acting as representative (in such capacity, the “Representative”), with respect to the sale by the Selling Stockholder and the purchase by the Underwriters, acting severally and not jointly, of the respective numbers of shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (“Common Stock”) set forth in Schedules A and B hereto (the “Securities”). To the extent that only one Underwriter is listed on Schedule A hereto, all references herein to the Representative and the Underwriters shall refer just to you.

SECTION 1.          Representations and Warranties.

(a)          Representations and Warranties by the Company.  The Company represents and warrants to each Underwriter as of the date hereof, the Applicable Time and the Closing Time (as defined below), and agrees with each Underwriter, as follows:

(i)          Registration Statement and Prospectuses.  The Company meets the requirements for use of Form S-3 under the 1933 Act.  The Registration Statement is an “automatic shelf registration statement” (as defined in Rule 405) and the Securities are eligible for registration by the Company on such automatic shelf registration statement.  Each of the Registration Statement and any post-effective amendment thereto has become effective under the 1933 Act.  No stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto has been issued under the 1933 Act, no order preventing or suspending the use of any preliminary prospectus or the Prospectus has been issued and no proceedings for any of those purposes have been instituted or are pending or, to the knowledge of the Company, threatened by the Commission.  The Company has complied with each request (if any) from the Commission for additional information.

Each of the Registration Statement and any post-effective amendment thereto, at the time of its effectiveness and at each deemed effective date with respect to the Underwriters pursuant to Rule 430B(f)(2) under the 1933 Act Regulations, complied in all material respects with the requirements of the 1933 Act and the 1933 Act Regulations.  Each preliminary prospectus, the Prospectus and any amendment or supplement thereto, at the time each was filed with the Commission, complied in all material respects with the requirements of the 1933 Act and the 1933 Act Regulations and each preliminary prospectus and the Prospectus delivered by the Company to the Underwriters for use in connection with this offering was identical to the electronically transmitted copies thereof filed with the Commission pursuant to EDGAR, except to the extent permitted by Regulation S-T.
 
 
3


The documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus, when they became effective or at the time they were or hereafter are filed with the Commission, complied and will comply in all material respects with the requirements of the 1934 Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission under the 1934 Act (the “1934 Act Regulations”).

(ii)          Accurate Disclosure.  Neither the Registration Statement nor any amendment thereto, at its effective time or at the Closing Time, contained, contains or will contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted, omits or will omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading.  As of the Applicable Time, neither (A) the General Disclosure Package nor (B) any individual Issuer Limited Use Free Writing Prospectus, when considered together with the General Disclosure Package, included, includes or will include an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted, omits or will omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  Neither the Prospectus nor any amendment or supplement thereto (including any prospectus wrapper), as of its issue date, at the time of any filing with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) or at the Closing Time, included, includes or will include an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted, omits or will omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  The documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, at the time the Registration Statement became effective or when such documents incorporated by reference were filed with the Commission, as the case may be, when read together with the other information in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus, as the case may be, did not and will not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading.

The representations and warranties in this subsection shall not apply to statements in or omissions from the Registration Statement (or any amendment thereto), the General Disclosure Package, any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by any Underwriter through the Representative expressly for use therein.  For purposes of this Agreement, the only information so furnished shall be the information in the second paragraph under the heading “Underwriting,” the information in the second and third paragraphs under the heading “Underwriting—Price Stabilization, Short Positions,” and the information under the heading “Underwriting—Electronic Distribution,” in each case contained in the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus (collectively, the “Underwriter Information”).
4


(iii)          Issuer Free Writing Prospectuses.  No Issuer Free Writing Prospectus conflicts or will conflict with the information contained in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus, including any document incorporated by reference therein, and any preliminary or other prospectus deemed to be a part thereof that has not been superseded or modified.  Any offer that is a written communication relating to the Securities made prior to the initial filing of the Registration Statement by the Company or any person acting on its behalf (within the meaning, for this paragraph only, of Rule 163(c) of the 1933 Act Regulations) has been filed with the Commission in accordance with the exemption provided by Rule 163 under the 1933 Act Regulations (“Rule 163”) and otherwise complied with the requirements of Rule 163, including without limitation the legending requirement, to qualify such offer for the exemption from Section 5(c) of the 1933 Act provided by Rule 163.

(iv)          Well-Known Seasoned Issuer.  (A) At the original effectiveness of the Registration Statement, (B) at the time of the most recent amendment thereto for the purposes of complying with Section 10(a)(3) of the 1933 Act (whether such amendment was by post-effective amendment, incorporated report filed pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the 1934 Act or form of prospectus), (C) at the time the Company or any person acting on its behalf (within the meaning, for this clause only, of Rule 163(c) under the 1933 Act) made any offer relating to the Securities in reliance on the exemption of Rule 163 under the 1933 Act, and (D) as of the Applicable Time, the Company was and is a “well-known seasoned issuer” (as defined in Rule 405).

(v)          Company Not Ineligible Issuer.  At the time of filing the Registration Statement and any post-effective amendment thereto, at the earliest time thereafter that the Company or another offering participant made a bona fide offer (within the meaning of Rule 164(h)(2) of the 1933 Act Regulations) of the Securities, and at the date hereof, the Company was not and is not an “ineligible issuer,” as defined in Rule 405, without taking account of any determination by the Commission pursuant to Rule 405 that it is not necessary that the Company be considered an ineligible issuer.

(vi)          Due Organization, Valid Existence and Good Standing.  Each of the Company and its subsidiaries has been duly organized, is validly existing and in good standing as a limited liability company, limited partnership, corporation or other business entity under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization and is duly qualified to do business and in good standing as a foreign limited liability company, limited partnership, corporation or other business entity in each jurisdiction in which its ownership or lease of property or the conduct of its businesses requires such qualification, except where the failure to be so qualified or in good standing would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), results of operations, members’ or stockholders’ equity, properties or business of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole (a “Material Adverse Effect”).  Each of the Company and its subsidiaries has all power and authority necessary to own or hold its properties and to conduct the businesses in which it is engaged.

(vii)          Capitalization.  The Company has an authorized capitalization as set forth in the Registration Statement as of the date set forth therein, and all of the authorized, issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company have been duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable.  All of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock or other equity interests of each subsidiary of the Company have been duly authorized and validly issued, are fully paid and non-assessable and are owned directly or indirectly by the Company, free and clear of all liens, encumbrances, equities or charges, except for such liens, encumbrances, equities or charges as would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
 
 
5


(viii)          Authorization and Description of Securities.  The Securities to be purchased by the Underwriters from the Selling Stockholder have been duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable; and have not been issued in violation of any preemptive or other similar rights of any securityholder of the Company. The Common Stock conforms in all material respects to all statements relating thereto contained in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus and such description conforms in all material respects to the rights set forth in the instruments defining the same.

(ix)          Power and Authority.  The Company has all requisite corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement.  This Agreement has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company.

(x)          Absence of Violations, Defaults and Conflicts with this Agreement.  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated herein and in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus (including the sale of the Securities and the use of the proceeds from the sale of the Securities as described therein under the caption “Use of Proceeds”) will not (i) conflict with or result in a breach or violation of any of the terms or provisions of, impose any lien, charge or encumbrance upon any property or assets of the Company or its subsidiaries, or constitute a default under, any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan agreement, license, lease or other agreement or instrument to which the Company or its subsidiaries is a party or by which the Company or its subsidiaries is bound or to which any of the property or assets of the Company or its subsidiaries is subject, (ii) result in any violation of the provisions of the charter or by-laws (or similar organizational documents) of the Company or its subsidiaries or (iii) result in any violation of any statute or any judgment, order, decree, rule or regulation of any court or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over the Company or its subsidiaries or any of their respective properties or assets, except, with respect to clauses (i) and (iii), conflicts or violations that would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(xi)          Absence of Further Requirements.  No consent, approval, authorization or order of, or filing, registration or qualification with, any court or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over the Company or its subsidiaries or any of their properties or assets is required for the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Agreement and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, except (A) such as have been already obtained or as may be required under the 1933 Act, the 1933 Act Regulations, the rules of the New York Stock Exchange, state securities or Blue Sky laws or the rules of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) and (B) such consents, approvals, authorizations or orders that would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(xii)          Accuracy of Exhibits.  There are no contracts or documents which are required to be described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus or to be filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement which have not been so described and filed as required.

(xiii)          Financial Statements; Non-GAAP Financial Measures.  The historical financial statements (including the related notes and supporting schedules) included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus present fairly in all material respects the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the entities purported to be shown thereby, at the dates and for the periods indicated, and have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods involved except for any annual year-end adjustment, the adoption of new accounting principles, and except as otherwise noted therein.  The supporting schedules, if any, present fairly in accordance with GAAP the information required to be stated therein.  The selected financial data and the summary financial information included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus present fairly the information shown therein and have been compiled on a basis consistent with that of the audited financial statements included or incorporated by reference therein.  The pro forma financial statements and the related notes thereto included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus present fairly in all material respects the information shown therein on the bases described therein, have been prepared in accordance with the Commission’s rules and guidelines with respect to pro forma financial statements, and the assumptions used in the preparation thereof are reasonable and the adjustments used therein are appropriate to give effect to the transactions and circumstances referred to therein.  Except as included or incorporated by reference therein, no historical or pro forma financial statements or supporting schedules are required to be included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus under the 1933 Act or the 1933 Act Regulations.  All disclosures contained in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus, or incorporated by reference therein, regarding “non-GAAP financial measures” (as such term is defined by the rules and regulations of the Commission) comply in all material respects with Regulation G of the 1934 Act and Item 10 of Regulation S-K of the 1933 Act, to the extent applicable.  The interactive data in eXtensible Business Reporting Language included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus fairly presents the information called for in all material respects and has been prepared in accordance with the Commission’s rules and guidelines applicable thereto.

(xiv)          Independent Auditors.  PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, which have audited certain financial statements of the Company, the reports of which appear or are incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus and which have delivered the initial letter referred to in Section 5(f) hereof, are independent auditors with respect to the Company as required by the 1933 Act, the 1933 Act Regulations, the 1934 Act, the 1934 Act Regulations and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

(xv)          Accounting Controls and Disclosure Controls.  The Company maintains effective internal control over consolidated financial reporting (as defined under Rule 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the 1934 Act Regulations and a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to provide reasonable assurances that (A) transactions are executed in accordance with management’s general or specific authorization; (B) transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP and to maintain accountability for assets; (C) access to assets is permitted only in accordance with management’s general or specific authorization; (D) the recorded accountability for assets is compared with the existing assets at reasonable intervals and appropriate action is taken with respect to any differences; and (E) the interactive data in eXtensible Business Reporting Language included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus fairly presents the information called for in all material respects and is prepared in accordance with the Commission’s rules and guidelines applicable thereto.  Except as described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, since the end of the Company’s most recent audited fiscal year, there has been (1) no material weakness in the Company’s internal control over consolidated financial reporting (whether or not remediated) and (2) no change in the Company’s internal control over consolidated financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over consolidated financial reporting.  Except as described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, the Company and each of its subsidiaries maintain an effective system of disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15 and Rule 15d-15 under the 1934 Act Regulations) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the 1934 Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms, and is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive officer or officers and principal financial officer or officers, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.

(xvi)          No Material Changes.  Except as described in each of the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, since the date of the latest audited financial statements included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, neither the Company nor its subsidiaries has (A) sustained any material loss or interference with its business from fire, explosion, flood or other calamity, whether or not covered by insurance, or from any labor disturbance or dispute or court or governmental action, order or decree, (B) issued or granted any equity securities, (C) incurred any material liability or obligation, direct or contingent, other than liabilities and obligations that were incurred in the ordinary course of business, (D) entered into any material transaction not in the ordinary course of business, or (E) declared or paid any dividend on its capital stock, and (F) since such date, there has not been any change in the capital stock, limited partnership or membership interests, as applicable, or short- or long-term debt of the Company or its subsidiaries or any adverse change in or affecting the condition (financial or otherwise), results of operations, members’ or stockholders’ equity, properties, management or business of the Company or its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, in each case except as would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(xvii)          Title to Property.  Each of the Company and its subsidiaries has good and marketable title in fee simple to all real property and good and marketable title to all personal property owned by them, in each case free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and charges, except such liens, encumbrances and charges as are described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus or which would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  All assets held under lease by the Company or its subsidiaries are held by them under valid, subsisting and enforceable leases, with such exceptions as do not interfere with the use made and proposed to be made of such assets by the Company or its subsidiaries, except where the invalidity or unenforceability of any such lease would not, in the aggregate, be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(xviii)          Possession of Licenses and Permits.  The Company and its subsidiaries have such permits, licenses, patents, franchises, certificates of need and other approvals or authorizations of governmental or regulatory authorities (“Permits”) as are necessary under applicable law to own their properties and conduct their businesses in the manner described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, except for any of the foregoing that could not, singly or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect or except as described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus.  The Company and its subsidiaries have fulfilled and performed all of their obligations with respect to the Permits, and no event has occurred that allows, or after notice or lapse of time would allow, revocation or termination thereof or results in any other impairment of the rights of the holder or any such Permits, except for any of the foregoing that could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect or except as described in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus.  None of the Company or its subsidiaries has received notice of any revocation or modification of any such Permits or has reason to believe that any such Permits will not be renewed in the ordinary course, except for any of the foregoing that could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(xix)          Possession of Intellectual Property.  The Company and its subsidiaries own or possess adequate rights to use all material patents, patent applications, trademarks, service marks, trade names, trademark registrations, service mark registrations, copyrights, licenses, know-how, software, systems and technology (including trade secrets and other unpatented and/or unpatentable proprietary or confidential information, systems or procedures) necessary for the conduct of their respective businesses and have no reason to believe that the conduct of their respective businesses will conflict with, and have not received any notice of any claim of conflict with, any such rights of others, except for such rights or conflicts that would not, singly or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

SECTION 6.          Indemnification.

(a)          Indemnification of Underwriters by the Company.  The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Underwriter, its affiliates (as such term is defined in Rule 501(b) under the 1933 Act (each, an “Affiliate”)), its selling agents, officers, directors, employees and each person, if any, who controls any Underwriter within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act as follows:

(i)          against any and all loss, liability, claim, damage and expense whatsoever, as incurred, arising out of any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Registration Statement (or any amendment thereto), including any information deemed to be a part thereof pursuant to Rule 430B, or the omission or alleged omission therefrom of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or arising out of any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact included in any preliminary prospectus, any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto), or the omission or alleged omission in any preliminary prospectus, Issuer Free Writing Prospectus or in the Prospectus of a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading;

(ii)          against any and all loss, liability, claim, damage and expense whatsoever, as incurred, to the extent of the aggregate amount paid in settlement of any litigation, or any investigation or proceeding by any governmental agency or body, commenced or threatened, or of any claim whatsoever based upon any such untrue statement or omission, or any such alleged untrue statement or omission; provided that any such settlement is effected with the written consent of the Company and the Selling Stockholder;

(iii)          against any and all expense whatsoever, as incurred (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel chosen by the Representative), reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any litigation, or any investigation or proceeding by any governmental agency or body, commenced or threatened, or any claim whatsoever based upon any such untrue statement or omission, or any such alleged untrue statement or omission, to the extent that any such expense is not paid under (i) or (ii) above;

provided, however, that this indemnity provision shall not apply to any loss, liability, claim, damage or expense to the extent arising out of any untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission made in the Registration Statement (or any amendment thereto), including any information deemed to be a part thereof pursuant to Rule 430B, any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, any preliminary prospectus, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) in reliance upon and in conformity with the Underwriter Information.
 
24


(b)          Indemnification of Underwriters by Selling Stockholder.  The Selling Stockholder agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Underwriter, its Affiliates, its selling agents, officers, directors, employees and each person, if any, who controls any Underwriter within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act to the extent and in the manner set forth in clauses (a)(i), (ii) and (iii) above, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity with information furnished to the Underwriters by or on behalf of the Selling Stockholder specifically for use therein, it being understood and agreed that the only information furnished by the Selling Stockholder consists solely of the information relating to the Selling Stockholder under the caption “Selling Stockholder” in the General Disclosure Package. The liability of the Selling Stockholder under the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement and under the indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section 6 and Section 7, respectively, shall be limited to an amount equal to the aggregate net proceeds after underwriting commissions and discounts, but before expenses, received by the Selling Stockholder from the sale of Shares sold by the Selling Stockholder under this Agreement.

(c)          Indemnification of Company, Directors and Officers and Selling Stockholder.  Each Underwriter severally agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement, and each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act, and the Selling Stockholder against any and all loss, liability, claim, damage and expense described in the indemnity contained in subsection (a) of this Section, as incurred, but only with respect to untrue statements or omissions, or alleged untrue statements or omissions, made in the Registration Statement (or any amendment thereto), including any information deemed to be a part thereof pursuant to Rule 430B, any preliminary prospectus, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) or any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus in reliance upon and in conformity with the Underwriter Information.

(d)          Actions against Parties; Notification.  Each indemnified party shall give notice as promptly as reasonably practicable to each indemnifying party of any action commenced against it in respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder, but failure to so notify an indemnifying party shall not relieve such indemnifying party from any liability hereunder to the extent it is not materially prejudiced as a result thereof and in any event shall not relieve it from any liability which it may have otherwise than on account of this indemnity agreement.  In case any such action is brought against any indemnified party and such indemnified party seeks or intends to seek indemnity from an indemnifying party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in, and, to the extent that it shall elect, jointly with all other indemnifying parties similarly notified, by written notice delivered to the indemnified party promptly after receiving the aforesaid notice from such indemnified party, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; provided, however, if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that a conflict may arise between the positions of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party in conducting the defense of any such action or that there may be legal defenses available to it and/or other indemnified parties that are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, the indemnified party or parties shall have the right to select separate counsel to assume such legal defenses and to otherwise participate in the defense of such action on behalf of such indemnified party or parties. Upon receipt of notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of such indemnifying party’s election so to assume the defense of such action and approval by the indemnified party of counsel, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 6 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof unless (i) the indemnified party shall have employed separate counsel in accordance with the proviso to the preceding sentence (it being understood, however, that the indemnifying party shall not be liable for the expenses of more than one separate counsel (other than local counsel), reasonably approved by the indemnifying party (or by the Representative in the case of Section 6(c)), representing the indemnified parties who are parties to such action) or (ii) the indemnifying party shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party within a reasonable time after notice of commencement of the action, in each of which cases the fees and expenses of counsel shall be at the expense of the indemnifying party. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified parties, settle or compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment with respect to any litigation, or any investigation or proceeding by any governmental agency or body, commenced or threatened, or any claim whatsoever in respect of which indemnification or contribution could be sought under this Section 6 or Section 7 hereof (whether or not the indemnified parties are actual or potential parties thereto), unless such settlement, compromise or consent (i) includes an unconditional release of each indemnified party from all liability arising out of such litigation, investigation, proceeding or claim and (ii) does not include a statement as to or an admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any indemnified party.
 
25


(e)          Other Agreements with Respect to Indemnification.  The provisions of this Section shall not affect any agreement between the Company and the Selling Stockholder with respect to indemnification.

SECTION 7.          Contribution.  If the indemnification provided for in Section 6 hereof is for any reason unavailable to or insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party in respect of any losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses referred to therein, then each indemnifying party shall contribute to the aggregate amount of such losses, liabilities, claims, damages and expenses incurred by such indemnified party, as incurred, (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and the Selling Stockholder, respectively, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, from the offering of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but also the relative fault of the Company and the Selling Stockholder, respectively, on the one hand, and of the Underwriters, on the other hand, in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.

The relative benefits received by the Company and the Selling Stockholder, respectively, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, in connection with the offering of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement shall be deemed to be in the same respective proportions as the total net proceeds from the offering of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement (before deducting expenses) received by the Company and the Selling Stockholder, respectively, on the one hand, and the total underwriting discount received by the Underwriters, on the other hand, in each case as set forth on the cover of the Prospectus, bear to the aggregate initial public offering price of the Securities as set forth on the cover of the Prospectus.
 
26


The relative fault of the Company and the Selling Stockholder, respectively, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any such untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Company or the Selling Stockholder or by the Underwriters and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.

The Company, the Selling Stockholder and the Underwriters agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 7 were determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Underwriters were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to above in this Section 7.  The aggregate amount of losses, liabilities, claims, damages and expenses incurred by an indemnified party and referred to above in this Section 7 shall be deemed to include any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in investigating, preparing or defending against any litigation, or any investigation or proceeding by any governmental agency or body, commenced or threatened, or any claim whatsoever based upon any such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission.

Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7, no Underwriter shall be required to contribute any amount in excess of the underwriting commissions received by such Underwriter in connection with the Shares underwritten by it and distributed to the public.

No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

For purposes of this Section 7, each person, if any, who controls an Underwriter within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act and each Underwriter’s Affiliates, officers, directors, employees and selling agents shall have the same rights to contribution as such Underwriter, and each director of the Company, each officer of the Company who signed the Registration Statement, and each person, if any, who controls the Company or the Selling Stockholder within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act shall have the same rights to contribution as the Company or the Selling Stockholder.  The Underwriters’ respective obligations to contribute pursuant to this Section 7 are several in proportion to the number of Securities set forth opposite their respective names in Schedule A hereto and not joint.

The provisions of this Section shall not affect any agreement between the Company and the Selling Stockholder with respect to contribution.
 
27


SECTION 8.          Representations, Warranties and Agreements to Survive.  All representations, warranties and agreements contained in this Agreement or in certificates of officers of the Company or the Selling Stockholder submitted pursuant hereto, shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of (i) any investigation made by or on behalf of any Underwriter or its Affiliates or selling agents, any person controlling any Underwriter, its officers or directors, any person controlling the Company or any person controlling the Selling Stockholder and (ii) delivery of and payment for the Securities.

SECTION 9.          Termination of Agreement.

(a)          Termination.  The Representative may terminate this Agreement, by notice to the Company and the Selling Stockholder, at any time at or prior to the Closing Time (i) if there has been, in the judgment of the Representative, since the time of execution of this Agreement or since the respective dates as of which information is given in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus, any material adverse change in the condition, financial or otherwise, or in the earnings, business affairs or business prospects of the Company and its subsidiaries, considered as one enterprise, whether or not arising in the ordinary course of business, or (ii) if there has occurred any material adverse change in the financial markets in the United States or the international financial markets, any outbreak of hostilities or escalation thereof or other calamity or crisis or any change or development involving a prospective change in national or international political, financial or economic conditions, in each case the effect of which is such as to make it, in the judgment of the Representative, impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the completion of the offering or to enforce contracts for the sale of the Securities, or (iii) if trading in any securities of the Company has been suspended or materially limited by the Commission or the New York Stock Exchange, or (iv) if trading generally on the NYSE MKT or the New York Stock Exchange or in the Nasdaq Global Market has been suspended or materially limited, or minimum or maximum prices for trading have been fixed, or maximum ranges for prices have been required, by any of said exchanges or by order of the Commission, FINRA or any other governmental authority, or (v) a material disruption has occurred in commercial banking or securities settlement or clearance services in the United States, or (vi) if a banking moratorium has been declared by either Federal or New York authorities.

(b)          Liabilities.  If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to this Section, such termination shall be without liability of any party to any other party except as provided in Section 4 hereof, and provided further that Sections 1, 6, 7, 8, 15, 16 and 17 shall survive such termination and remain in full force and effect.
 
 
28


SECTION 10.          Default by One or More of the Underwriters.  If one or more of the Underwriters shall fail at the Closing Time to purchase the Securities which it or they are obligated to purchase under this Agreement (the “Defaulted Securities”), the Representative shall have the right, within 24 hours thereafter, to make arrangements for one or more of the non-defaulting Underwriters, or any other underwriters, to purchase all, but not less than all, of the Defaulted Securities in such amounts as may be agreed upon and upon the terms herein set forth; if, however, the Representative shall not have completed such arrangements within such 24 hour period, then:

(i)          if the number of Defaulted Securities does not exceed 10% of the number of Securities to be purchased on such date, each of the non-defaulting Underwriters shall be obligated, severally and not jointly, to purchase the full amount thereof in the proportions that their respective underwriting obligations hereunder bear to the underwriting obligations of all non-defaulting Underwriters, or

(ii)          if the number of Defaulted Securities exceeds 10% of the number of Securities to be purchased on such date, this Agreement shall terminate without liability on the part of any non-defaulting Underwriter.

No action taken pursuant to this Section shall relieve any defaulting Underwriter from liability in respect of its default.

In the event of any such default which does not result in a termination of this Agreement either the (i) Representative or (ii) the Company and the Selling Stockholder shall have the right to postpone Closing Time for a period not exceeding seven days in order to effect any required changes in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus or in any other documents or arrangements.  As used herein, the term “Underwriter” includes any person substituted for an Underwriter under this Section 10.

SECTION 11.          Default by the Company or the Selling Stockholder.  (a)  If the Company shall fail at the Closing Time to sell the number of Securities that it is obligated to sell hereunder, then this Agreement shall terminate without any liability on the part of any non-defaulting party; provided, however, that the provisions of Sections 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 15, 16 and 17 shall remain in full force and effect.  No action taken pursuant to this Section shall relieve the Company from liability, if any, in respect of such default.

(a)          If the Selling Stockholder shall fail at the Closing Time to sell and deliver the number of Securities which the Selling Stockholder is obligated to sell hereunder, then the Underwriters may, at the option of the Representative, by notice from the Representative to the Company, either (i) terminate this Agreement without any liability on the fault of any non-defaulting party except that the provisions of Sections 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 15, 16 and 17 shall remain in full force and effect or (ii) elect to purchase the Securities which the Company has agreed to sell hereunder. No action taken pursuant to this Section 11 shall relieve the Selling Stockholder so defaulting from liability, if any, in respect of such default.  In the event of a default by the Selling Stockholder as referred to in this Section 11, each of the Representative and the Company shall have the right to postpone the Closing Time for a period not exceeding seven days in order to effect any required change in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or the Prospectus or in any other documents or arrangements.

SECTION 13.          No Advisory or Fiduciary Relationship.  Each of the Company and the Selling Stockholder, severally and not jointly, acknowledges and agrees that (a) the purchase and sale of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement, including the determination of the initial public offering price of the Securities and any related discounts and commissions, is an arm’s-length commercial transaction between the Company and the Selling Stockholder, on the one hand, and the several Underwriters, on the other hand, (b) in connection with the offering of the Securities and the process leading thereto, each Underwriter is and has been acting solely as a principal and is not the agent or fiduciary of the Company, any of its subsidiaries or the Selling Stockholder, or their respective stockholders, creditors, employees or any other party, (c) no Underwriter has assumed or will assume an advisory or fiduciary responsibility in favor of the Company or the Selling Stockholder with respect to the offering of the Securities or the process leading thereto (irrespective of whether such Underwriter has advised or is currently advising the Company, any of its subsidiaries or the Selling Stockholder on other matters) and no Underwriter has any obligation to the Company or the Selling Stockholder with respect to the offering of the Securities except the obligations expressly set forth in this Agreement, (d) the Underwriters and their respective affiliates may be engaged in a broad range of transactions that involve interests that differ from those of each of the Company and the Selling Stockholder, and (e) the Underwriters have not provided any legal, accounting, regulatory or tax advice with respect to the offering of the Securities and the Company and the Selling Stockholder have consulted their own respective legal, accounting, regulatory and tax advisors to the extent it deemed appropriate. The Company and the Selling Stockholder hereby waive any claims that the Company and the Selling Stockholder may have against the Underwriters with respect to any breach of fiduciary duty in connection with the Securities.

SECTION 14.          Parties.  This Agreement shall each inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the Underwriters, the Company and the Selling Stockholder and their respective successors.  Nothing expressed or mentioned in this Agreement is intended or shall be construed to give any person, firm or corporation, other than the Underwriters, the Company and the Selling Stockholder and their respective successors and the controlling persons and officers and directors referred to in Sections 6 and 7 and their heirs and legal representatives, any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or in respect of this Agreement or any provision herein contained.  This Agreement and all conditions and provisions hereof are intended to be for the sole and exclusive benefit of the Underwriters, the Company and the Selling Stockholder and their respective successors, and said controlling persons and officers and directors and their heirs and legal representatives, and for the benefit of no other person, firm or corporation.  No purchaser of Securities from any Underwriter shall be deemed to be a successor by reason merely of such purchase.

SECTION 15.          TRIAL BY JURY.  THE COMPANY (ON ITS BEHALF AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ON BEHALF OF ITS STOCKHOLDERS AND AFFILIATES), THE SELLING STOCKHOLDER AND EACH OF THE UNDERWRITERS HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.

SECTION 16.          GOVERNING LAW.  THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY CLAIM, CONTROVERSY OR DISPUTE ARISING UNDER OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF, THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CHOICE OF LAW PROVISIONS.

EXHIBIT A-1

Based upon the foregoing and subject to the qualifications and assumptions stated herein, we are of the opinion that:

1.
Based solely on our review of the Delaware Certificates, the Company is duly incorporated and is validly existing and in good standing under the DGCL.

2.
Based solely on our review of the Delaware Subsidiary Certificates, each of the Delaware Subsidiaries is duly formed or incorporated, as applicable, is validly existing as a limited liability company or corporation, as applicable, and is in good standing under the DGCL or DLLCA, as applicable.

3.
The Company has the corporate power and authority under the DGCL to execute and deliver the Underwriting Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated thereby.

4.
The Underwriting Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by all requisite corporate action on the part of the Company under the DGCL.

5.
The execution and delivery by the Company of the Underwriting Agreement does not: (i) conflict with the Company Organizational Documents, (ii) constitute a violation of, or a default under, any Scheduled Contract,  (iii) contravene any Scheduled Order or (iv) violate any law, rule or regulation of the State of New York, the United States of America or the DGCL.

6.
The execution and delivery by the Company of the Underwriting Agreement does not require the consent, approval, licensing or authorization of, or any filing, recording or registration with, any governmental authority under any law, rule or regulation of the State of New York, the United States of America or the DGCL, except for those consents, approvals, licenses and authorizations already obtained and those filings, recordings and registrations already made.

7.
The Securities being sold by the Selling Stockholder have been duly authorized by all requisite corporate action on the part of the Company under the DGCL, and have been validly issued and are fully paid and nonassessable, and were issued free and clear of any preemptive rights or any similar rights arising under the DGCL.

8.
The Company has authority under its Certificate of Incorporation to issue 2,000,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 300,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share, and such authorized capital stock of the Company conforms as to legal matters to the description thereof contained under the caption “Description of Capital Stock” in the Base Prospectus and the Disclosure Package.

9.
The statements in the Prospectus Supplement and the Disclosure Package under the caption “Underwriting,” insofar as such statements purport to summarize certain provisions of the Underwriting Agreement, fairly summarize such provisions in all material respects.

10.
The Company is not and, solely after giving effect to the offering and sale of the Securities, will not be, an “investment company” as such term is defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
 
Ex. A-1

11.
The Underwriting Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by all requisite limited liability company action on the part of the Selling Stockholder under the DLLCA.

12.
An action based on an adverse claim to the financial asset consisting of the Securities held by the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), whether such action is framed in conversion, replevin, constructive trust, equitable lien, or other theory, may not be successfully asserted against Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, assuming that Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC acquires security entitlements with respect to such Securities from DTC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC does not have notice of any adverse claims with respect to such financial asset.

13.
(i) The Registration Statement, at the Effective Time, and the Prospectus, as of the date of the Prospectus, appeared on their face to be appropriately responsive in all material respects to the requirements of the Securities Act and the Rules and Regulations (except that in each case we do not express any view as to the financial statements, schedules and other financial information, including the financial statements, schedules and other financial information of OneMain, included or incorporated by reference therein or excluded therefrom) and (ii) no facts have come to our attention that have caused us to believe that the Registration Statement, at the Effective Time, contained an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, or that the Prospectus, as of the date of the Prospectus Supplement and as of the date hereof, contained or contains an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted or omits to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading (except that in each case we do not express any view as to the financial statements, schedules and other financial information, including the financial statements, schedules and other financial information of OneMain, included or incorporated by reference therein or excluded therefrom, the reports of management’s assessment of the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting or the auditors’ reports on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting or the statements contained in the exhibits to the Registration Statement).  In addition, on the basis of the foregoing, no facts have come to our attention that have caused us to believe that the Disclosure Package, as of the Applicable Time (as defined below), contained an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading (except that we do not express any view as to the financial statements, schedules and other financial information, including the financial statements, schedules and other financial information of OneMain, included or incorporated by reference therein or excluded therefrom, the reports of management’s assessment of the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting or the auditors’ reports on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting or the statements contained in the exhibits to the Registration Statement).
 
 
2

 
EXHIBIT A-2
Based upon and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that under current U.S. federal income tax law, although the discussion set forth in the Prospectus Supplement under the heading “United States Federal Income Tax Considerations for Non-U.S. Holders of Common Stock” does not purport to discuss all possible U.S. federal income tax consequences of the purchase, ownership or disposition of the Securities, such discussion constitutes, in all material respects, a fair and accurate summary of the U.S. federal income tax consequences that are anticipated to be material to non-U.S. holders who purchase the Securities pursuant to the Prospectus Supplement, subject to the qualifications set forth in such discussion.

LLC, directly or indirectly, (i) offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant for the sale of, or otherwise dispose of or transfer any shares of the Company’s Common Stock or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for Common Stock, whether now owned or hereafter acquired by the undersigned or with respect to which the undersigned has or hereafter acquires the power of disposition (collectively, the “Lock-Up Securities”), or exercise any right with respect to the registration of any of the Lock-up Securities, or file or cause to be filed any registration statement in connection therewith, under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or (ii) enter into any swap or any other agreement or any transaction that transfers, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, the economic consequence of ownership of the Lock-Up Securities, whether any such swap or transaction is to be settled by delivery of Common Stock or other securities, in cash or otherwise, in each case other than the Securities to be sold by the undersigned pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement.
 
 
Ex. B-1

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, and subject to the conditions below, the undersigned may transfer the Lock-Up Securities without the prior written consent of Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, provided that, (i) with respect to (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) below (irrespective of whether such transfer involves a disposition of value, to the extent permitted by this Agreement), Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC receives a signed lock-up agreement for the balance of the Lock-up Period from each donee, trustee, distributee, or transferee, as the case may be, (ii) any transfer described under (a), (b) or (c) below shall not involve a disposition for value, (iii) with respect to (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) below, such transfers (irrespective of whether such transfer involves a disposition of value, to the extent permitted by this Agreement) are not required to be reported with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 4 in accordance with Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and (iv) the undersigned does not otherwise voluntarily effect any public filing or report regarding such transfers (other than a filing on Form 5 made after the expiration of the Lock-up Period referred to above), irrespective of whether such transfer involves a disposition of value, to the extent permitted by this Agreement:

(a)          as a bona fide gift or gifts; or

(b)          to any trust for the direct or indirect benefit of the undersigned or the immediate family of the undersigned (for purposes of this lock-up agreement, “immediate family” shall mean any relationship by blood, marriage or adoption, not more remote than first cousin); or

(c)          (1) to another corporation, partnership or other business entity that is a controlled or managed affiliate of the undersigned or (2) as a distribution to limited or general partners, members, stockholders or other equity holders of the undersigned; or

(d)          to funds managed by an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC; or

(e)          to the undersigned’s affiliates or to any investment fund or other entity controlled or managed by the undersigned; or

(f)          by will or intestacy or if the transfer occurs by operation of law, such as rules of descent and distribution, or pursuant to a qualified domestic order or in connection with a divorce settlement; or

(g)          under any written plan meeting the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act in effect on the date hereof; or

(h)          the Common Stock to be sold by the undersigned pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement; or

(i)           the exercise of options or warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock of the Company or the conversion of outstanding preferred stock of the Company into shares of Common Stock of the Company, provided that any shares of Common Stock issued pursuant thereto will remain subject to the terms of this Agreement for the remainder of the Lock-up Period; or

(j)           the disposition of any shares of Common Stock in order to pay taxes in connection with the vesting of any restricted stock units or restricted stock awards issued pursuant to the Company’s existing equity incentive plans.
 
 
Ex. B-2

 

Furthermore, the undersigned may sell shares of Common Stock of the Company purchased by the undersigned on the open market following the Public Offering if and only if (i) such sales are not required to be reported in any public report or filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or otherwise and (ii) the undersigned does not otherwise voluntarily effect any public filing or report regarding such sales.

The undersigned also agrees and consents to the entry of stop transfer instructions with the Company’s transfer agent and registrar against the transfer of the Lock-Up Securities except in compliance with the foregoing restrictions.

This agreement shall lapse and become null and void if (i) prior to entering the Underwriting Agreement, the Company notifies Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC in writing that the Company does not intend to proceed with the offering of the Common Stock, (ii) the Company, the Selling Stockholder and the Representative have not entered into the Underwriting Agreement on or before February 28, 2018, or (iii) for any reason the Underwriting Agreement is terminated prior to the Closing Time (as defined therein).
