Item 8.01. Other Events
On September 25, 2012, in the legal proceeding styled State of Texas v. Life Partners Holdings, Inc. et al (Tex. Dist. [201st Judicial Dist.], Cause No. D-1-GV-12-001128), the district court ruled that the life settlement transactions facilitated by Life Partners Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiary, Life Partners, Inc. (“we”), are not securities under Texas law. Although subject to appeal, the ruling effectively ends the Texas Attorney General’s suit against us. The ruling also dissolves a temporary restraining order, which will permit us to pay the $0.10 dividend we had previously declared to shareholders of record as of September 3, 2012.
On September 26, 2012, we issued a press release about the ruling and its consequences. The press release is furnished as an exhibit and is posted on our website (www.lphi.com).
