ITEM 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 16, 2022 (the "Closing Date"), Hagerty, Inc. (the "Company") closed the transaction it entered into by executing that certain Contribution and Exchange Agreement, dated August 9, 2022 (the "Contribution Agreement"), among The Hagerty Group, LLC, a subsidiary of the Company ("OpCo"), Broad Arrow Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation in which OpCo owned a 39.74% ownership interest prior to the Closing Date ("Broad Arrow"), Broad Arrow Holdings LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, the stockholders of Broad Arrow (each a Contributor, as defined in the Contribution Agreement), and the Contributor Representative (as defined in the Contribution Agreement)(such transaction, the “Transaction”). As previously reported, in January 2022, OpCo purchased 39.74% of the outstanding capital stock of Broad Arrow for a purchase price of $15.25 million and entered into a joint venture with Broad Arrow to enhance the Company's portfolio of automotive-focused offerings. Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, as of the Closing Date, the Contributors contributed all of the remaining 60.26% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock in Broad Arrow to OpCo in exchange for equity interests in OpCo and the Company pursuant to a valid exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). As result of the Transaction, Broad Arrow is a wholly-owned subsidiary of OpCo, and the Company and Broad Arrow expect to further leverage their respective product offerings and continue to build the Hagerty Marketplace, a proprietary digital platform to facilitate buying, selling and financing of collector vehicles.

The foregoing description of the Contribution Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Contribution Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10, 2022 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Pursuant to General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 of Form 8-K is being furnished and shall not be deemed "filed" for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") or otherwise be subject to the liabilities of that section, nor is it incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
