CUSIP NO. 431466101    SCHEDULE 13D    PAGE 6 OF 12

 

Item 1. Security and Issuer.

This Statement on Schedule 13D (this “Schedule 13D”) relates to shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value (the “Hill Common Stock”), of Hill International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Hill”). Hill’s principal executive offices are located at One Commerce Square, 2005 Market Street, 17th Floor, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103.

Item 2. Identity and Background.

(a) – (c) This Schedule 13D is being filed jointly by:

 

  1.

Global Infrastructure Solutions Inc., a Delaware corporation (“GISI”);

 

  2.

Hill International Credit Co. LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and direct wholly owned subsidiary of GISI (“HICC”);

 

  3.

GISI International Services LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and direct wholly owned subsidiary of HICC (“GIS International”); and

 

  4.

Liberty Acquisition Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly owned subsidiary of GIS International (“Merger Sub”).

GISI, HICC, GIS International and Merger Sub are each referred to herein as a “Reporting Person” and collectively as the “Reporting Persons.” The principal business and office address for each of GISI, HICC, GIS International and Merger Sub is 660 Newport Center Drive, Suite 940, Newport Beach, California 92660.

GISI and its affiliated group of companies, of which HICC, GIS International and Merger Sub are members, is a leading construction management, engineering and consulting, and impact and sustainability firm.

HICC serves primarily as a holding company, holding all of the membership interests in GIS International. GIS International serves primarily as a holding company, holding all of the equity interests in Merger Sub. Merger Sub was formed for the sole purpose of entering into the Amended Agreement (as defined below) and consummating the transactions contemplated thereby. Because of the relationship of Merger Sub to GIS International, HICC and GISI, each such Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own the Hill Common Stock.

Set forth on Annex A to this Schedule 13D, and incorporated herein by reference, is a list of the executive officers and directors of the Reporting Persons, which contains the following information with respect to each such person: (a) name, (b) business address, (c) present principal occupation or employment and the name, principal business and address of the corporation or other organization in which such employment is conducted, and (d) citizenship.

(d) – (e) During the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons and, to the best of the Reporting Persons’ knowledge, none of the persons listed on Annex A has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or has been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction as a result of which such person 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) The citizenship of each executive officer and director of the Reporting Persons is set forth on Annex A.

The Reporting Persons have entered into a Joint Filing Agreement, dated as of September 2, 2022, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 1.03 hereto, pursuant to which the Reporting Persons have agreed to file this Schedule 13D jointly in accordance with the provisions of Rule 13d-1(k)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).


CUSIP NO. 431466101    SCHEDULE 13D    PAGE 7 OF 12

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

The information set forth or incorporated in Item 4 is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 3.

As more fully described in Item 4 hereof, the Supporting Stockholders (as defined below), who are the record and/or beneficial owners of 5,799,621 shares of Hill Common Stock (the shares of Hill Common Stock beneficially owned by the Supporting Stockholders along with any new shares of Hill Common Stock acquired by the Supporting Stockholders, collectively, the “Supporting Shares”), have entered into the New Support Agreement (as defined below) with GISI and Merger Sub. As a result of the New Support Agreement, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to have beneficial ownership of the 5,799,621 shares of Hill Common Stock beneficially owned by the Supporting Stockholders, however such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed by each Reporting Person. The Reporting Persons did not pay any consideration to the Supporting Stockholders in respect of the New Support Agreement. The Supporting Stockholders entered into the New Support Agreement to induce the Reporting Persons to enter into the Amended Agreement (as defined below), as more fully described in Item 4 hereof.

It is currently anticipated that GISI or Merger Sub will finance the acquisition of Hill Common Stock in the Merger through cash on hand.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

Merger Agreement

On August 26, 2022, GISI, Merger Sub, and Hill entered into an Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Amended Agreement”), which amended and restated the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 16, 2022, by and among Hill, GISI and Merger Sub (the “Original Agreement”).

Pursuant to the Amended Agreement, the acquisition of Hill by GISI and Merger Sub will be accomplished through a one-step merger, as opposed to a tender offer followed by a merger as contemplated in the Original Agreement. The Amended Agreement provides that, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Amended Agreement and in accordance with the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Hill (the “Merger”) with Hill surviving the Merger as the surviving corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of GISI.

The consummation of the Merger is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, (i) the receipt of the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Hill Common Stock represented and entitled to vote at a duly held meeting of Hill’s stockholders in favor of the adoption of the Amended Agreement (the “Hill Stockholder Approval”); (ii) expiration or termination of any waiting periods applicable to the consummation of the Transactions under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 and the receipt of consent or authorization under certain foreign antitrust laws; and (iii) the absence of any order that has the effect of preventing, making illegal or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the Transactions.

Support Agreement

As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Hill with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 17, 2022, concurrently with the execution of the Original Agreement, GISI and certain stockholders of Hill (the “Supporting Stockholders”) entered into a Tender and Support Agreement (the “Original Support Agreement”). Concurrently with the execution of the Amended Agreement and as an inducement to GISI and Merger Sub to enter into the Amended Agreement, GISI and the Supporting Stockholders terminated the Original Support Agreement and entered into a Support Agreement (the “New Support Agreement”), pursuant to which the Supporting Stockholders agreed, among other things, to vote in favor of the Transactions and in favor of adopting the Amended Agreement and against other proposals to acquire Hill. In addition, the Supporting Stockholders have granted GISI an irrevocable proxy to vote the Supporting Shares in connection with the Transaction. Under the New Support Agreement, the Supporting Stockholders are also prohibited from (1) except as expressly permitted by the New Support Agreement, transferring the shares of such stockholders prior to the record date of Hill’s shareholder meeting and (2) soliciting any Acquisition Proposals (as defined in the Amended Agreement) or having any discussions or negotiations with any third party, or entering into any agreement, whether written or


CUSIP NO. 431466101    SCHEDULE 13D    PAGE 8 OF 12

 

otherwise, with any third party regarding any Acquisition Proposals. The New Support Agreement terminates in certain circumstances, including in connection with (i) the Hill Board’s determination to change its recommendation with respect to the Transactions and (ii) any modification or amendment to, or the waiver of any provision of, the Amended Agreement as in effect on the date of the New Support Agreement that is effected, in either case, without the written consent of the Supporting Stockholders, that decreases the amount, or changes the form or terms of consideration payable for the shares of Hill Common Stock pursuant to the Amended Agreement or adversely affects the rights of the Supporting Stockholders.

The foregoing descriptions of the Amended Agreement and the New Support Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to such agreements. The Amended Agreement and the New Support Agreement are referenced herein as Exhibits 1.01 and 1.02 to this Schedule 13D and are incorporated by reference into this Item 4.

Following the Merger, the shares of Hill Common Stock will no longer be traded on the New York Stock Exchange, there will be no public market for the shares of Hill Common Stock, and registration of the shares of Hill Common Stock under the Exchange Act will be terminated. Except as set forth in this Schedule 13D and in connection with the Merger and the New Support Agreement described above, the Reporting Persons do not have any plan or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

The information contained in rows 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 on each of the cover pages of this Schedule 13D and the footnotes thereto, and the information set forth or incorporated in Items 2, 3 and 4 is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 5.

(a) – (b) As a result of the transactions described in Item 4, as of the date of this Schedule 13D, under the definition of “beneficial ownership” as set forth in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act, each Reporting Person may be deemed to have shared voting power with respect to (and therefore beneficially own) 5,799,621 shares of Hill Common Stock, representing approximately 10.2% of the outstanding shares of Hill Common Stock (based on the 57,086,992 shares of Hill Common Stock outstanding as of the close of business on August 15, 2022 (as set forth in the Amended Agreement). Accordingly, the percentage of the outstanding shares of Hill Common Stock that may be deemed to be beneficially owned by each of GISI, HICC, GIS International and Merger Sub as a result of the New Support Agreement is approximately 10.2%.

Except as set forth above, no Reporting Person beneficially owns any shares of Hill Common Stock. Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission by any of the Reporting Persons that it is the beneficial owner of any of the Hill Common Stock referred to herein for the purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act, or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed by each Reporting Person. All Supporting Shares are reported to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons based on the representations of Hill and the Supporting Stockholders. Each Reporting Person expressly disclaims any assertion or presumption that it and the other persons on whose behalf this Schedule 13D is filed constitute a “group” for the purposes of Sections 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules thereunder. The filing of this Schedule 13D should not be construed to be an admission that any member of the Reporting Persons are members of a “group” for the purposes of Sections 13(d) of the Exchange Act.

The foregoing descriptions of the Amended Agreement and the New Support Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to such agreements. The Amended Agreement and the New Support Agreement are referenced herein as Exhibits 1.01 and 1.02 to this Schedule 13D and are incorporated by reference into this Item 5(a) – (b).

(c) Except as described in this Schedule 13D, none of the Reporting Persons, and to the best knowledge of the Reporting Persons none of the persons named in Schedule A hereto, has effected any transactions in the shares of Hill Common Stock during the last 60 days.


CUSIP NO. 431466101    SCHEDULE 13D    PAGE 9 OF 12

 

(d) Except as described in this Schedule 13D, none of the Reporting Persons, and to the best knowledge of the Reporting Persons, none of the persons named in Schedule A hereto or any other person (except for the Supporting Stockholders), and no other person (except for the Supporting Stockholders), has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the shares of Hill Common Stock reported herein.

(e) Not applicable.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

The information set forth, or incorporated by reference, in Items 3, 4 and 5 of this Schedule 13D is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 6.

Except as otherwise described in this Schedule 13D, to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, there are no other contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships (legal or otherwise) among any of the Reporting Persons or any person listed on Annex A hereto, and any person with respect to any securities of Hill, including but not limited to transfer or voting of any of the securities of Hill, finder’s fees, joint ventures, loan or option arrangements, puts or calls, guarantees of profits, division of profits or loss, or the giving or withholding of proxies.
