Exhibit 10.25





This Amendment to Promissory Note (“Amendment”) is dated June 19, 2020 (and is effective as of June 19, 2020), and made by and between CONIFER HOLDINGS, INC. (“Borrower”), and THE HUNTINGTON NATIONAL BANK (“Lender”).




WHEREAS, Borrower has executed and delivered that certain Promissory Note dated as of June 21, 2018, in the original principal amount of Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) payable to Lender, as amended (the “Note”);


WHEREAS, Borrower and Lender desire to amend the Note as set forth herein; NOW, THEREFORE, the parties agree as follows:



The Maturity Date of the Note is now June 18, 2021.



The definitions of LIBO Rate and Replacement Index in the Note are amended to read as follows: “LIBO Rate” shall mean the rate obtained by dividing: (1) the actual or estimated per


annum rate, or the arithmetic mean of the per annum rates, of interest for deposits in U.S. dollars in the London interbank market for the related LIBO Rate Interest Period, as determined by Bank in its discretion based upon reference to information which appears on page LIBOR01, captioned ICE Benchmark Administration Interest Settlement Rates, of the Reuters America Network, a service of Reuters America Inc. (or such other page that may replace that page on that service for the purpose of displaying London interbank offered rates; or, if such service ceases to be available or ceases to be used by Bank, such other reasonably comparable money rate service as Bank may select) or upon information obtained from any other reasonable procedure, as of two Business Days prior to the first day of a LIBO Rate Interest Period; by (2) an amount equal to one minus the stated maximum rate (expressed as a decimal), if any, of all reserve requirements (including, without limitation, any marginal, emergency, supplemental, special or other reserves) that is specified on the first day of each LIBO Rate Interest Period by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor agency thereto) for determining the maximum reserve requirement with respect to eurocurrency funding (currently referred to as "Eurocurrency liabilities" in Regulation D of such Board) maintained by a member bank of such System, or any other regulations of any governmental authority having jurisdiction with respect thereto as conclusively determined by Bank. Subject to any maximum or minimum interest rate limitation specified herein or by applicable law, any variable rate of interest on the obligation evidenced hereby shall change automatically, without notice to the Borrower, on the first day of each LIBO Rate Interest Period. The interest rate change will not occur more often than each month. The reference sources for the index used by Bank, as stated in this Note, may quote the index on any given day to as many as 5 places to the right of the decimal point. Therefore, the index value used to calculate the interest rate on and the amount of interest due under this Note will be up to 5 places to the right of the decimal point. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the LIBO Rate shall be less than one half of one percent (1/2%), such rate shall be deemed to be one half of one percent (1/2%) for purposes of this Note.


“Replacement Index” means the sum of: (x) the alternate index rate (which may be based on the Secured Overnight Financing Rate) that has been selected by Bank and (y) the adjustment factor (which may be a positive or negative value or zero) that has been selected by Bank; provided, that if the Replacement Index is less than one half of one percent (1/2%), it shall be deemed to be one half of one percent (1/2%) for purposes of this Note. In making such selections, Bank shall give due consideration to (i) any selection or recommendation by the Federal Reserve Board and/or the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (or a committee officially endorsed or









convened thereby) or any successor thereto or (ii) any evolving or then-prevailing market convention for such rate or adjustment.”




This Amendment may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall constitute an original and all of which shall together constitute one and the same Amendment.





Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Note.




Borrower is responsible for all costs incurred by Lender, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, with regard to the preparation and execution of this Amendment.





The execution of this Amendment shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any Event of Default.




This Amendment is not an agreement to any further or other amendment of the Note.




Borrower expressly acknowledges and agrees that except as expressly amended by this Amendment, the Note, as amended, remains in full force and effect and is ratified, confirmed and restated.
