07/26/2019

WASHINGTON D.C. and FORT WAYNE, INDIANA, July 26, 2019 – In anticipation of the previously announced proposed business combination (the “proposed business combination”) of Nesco Holdings I, Inc. (“Nesco”) with and into a subsidiary of Capitol Investment Corp. IV (NYSE: CIC; “Capitol”), Capitol Investment Merger Sub 2, LLC, the indirect subsidiary of Capitol (the “Issuer”) announced today that it priced an offering of $475 million aggregate principal amount of 10% senior secured second lien notes due 2024 (the “Notes”). The sale of the Notes is expected to be consummated on or about July 31, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions. The net proceeds from the offering of the Notes, together with borrowings under a new asset-based lending facility to be entered into by the Issuer, as well as at least $200 million of cash equity contributions, will be used to fund the proposed business combination-related transactions, to refinance Nesco’s existing indebtedness and to pay related fees and expenses.

The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or any state securities laws, and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or pursuant to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and state securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. This notice is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
