Item 8.01. Other Events

On May 18, 2018, Endurance International Group Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it has reached agreements in principle to settle each of the purported class action securities lawsuits captioned Machado v. Endurance International Group Holdings, Inc., et al. and William McGee v. Constant Contact, Inc., et al., each pending against the Company in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts and described in the Company’s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 4, 2018.

The agreements in principle contemplate settlement payments by the Company in an aggregate amount approximately equal to the amounts that the Company reserved for those cases in its financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, with the balance of the settlement amounts to be paid by the Company’s insurers. The agreements are each subject to negotiation and execution of a definitive settlement agreement, notice to the putative class, and approval by the court, which process may take several months. There can be no assurance that either or both actions will be finally resolved in accordance with the agreements in principle or at all.

The information in this report relating to the prospective resolution of the purported class action lawsuits are forward-looking statements reflecting the current beliefs and expectations of management made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements involve substantial risks and uncertainties, including, among others, risks and uncertainties associated with negotiating final terms of settlement agreements, obtaining court approval of the proposed settlements, the number of purported class members who may opt-out of the proposed settlements, whether any proposed settlement is appealed, and the timing of the settlement payments. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. For a further description of the risks and uncertainties relating to the business of the Company in general, see the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
