Item 7.01.  Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On November 21, 2018, AAC Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), certain of its subsidiaries, and certain of its current and former officers entered into a settlement with plaintiffs to settle the litigation styled Smith, et al. v. American Addiction Centers, Inc., et al., Case No. BC667311, pending in the Superior Court of the State of California (the “Smith Litigation”).  The settlement provides for (i) the Company to pay plaintiffs an aggregate of $8,000,000 (the “Settlement Payment”) in payments to be made throughout 2019, (ii) a mutual exchange of releases, (iii) dismissal of the litigation, and (iv) other non-monetary terms.  The Company intends to pursue efforts to recover amounts from its insurance carriers to pay a portion of the Settlement Payment.  The Company cannot, however, assure the amount of any recovery from its insurance carriers.

 

Also on November 21, 2018, the Company entered into a settlement with its former officer and director, Jerrod N. Menz (“Menz”).  In exchange for Menz releasing his claim for indemnification in the Smith Litigation, the Company has agreed to release Menz from his agreement to contribute 300,000 shares to the settlement of the securities class action lawsuit (Kasper v. AAC Holdings, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:15-cv-923, United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee) that was finally settled on June 11, 2018.
