PRELIMINARY—SUBJECT TO COMPLETION, DATED OCTOBER 18, 2017

Fidelity National Financial, Inc.
601 Riverside Avenue
Jacksonville, Florida 32204
(904) 854-8100

Dear Stockholder:   [·], 2017

        You are cordially invited to a special meeting of stockholders of Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (FNF) FNFV Group common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (FNFV common stock), to be held at [    ·    ] local time, on [    ·    ], 2017, at the corporate offices of Fidelity National Financial, Inc., 601 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32204 (the special meeting). A notice of the special meeting, a proxy card, and a proxy statement/prospectus containing important information about the matters to be acted on at the special meeting accompany this letter.

        In accordance with FNF's fourth amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the FNF charter), at the special meeting, holders of FNFV common stock will be asked to consider and vote on a proposal (the redemption proposal), to approve the redemption by FNF of all of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for outstanding shares of common stock of a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF, Cannae Holdings, Inc. (Splitco), amounting to a redemption on a per share basis of each outstanding share of FNFV common stock for one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Splitco (Splitco common stock). Cash will be paid in lieu of any fractional shares (after taking into account all of the shares of FNFV common stock and Splitco common stock owned by each holder thereof, as applicable). Prior to the redemption, except as disclosed in this proxy statement/prospectus, all of the businesses, assets and liabilities attributed to FNF's FNFV Group common stock (including any liabilities relating to the FNFV Group's businesses that were incurred prior to the Split-Off) will be contributed to Splitco. Except as disclosed in this proxy statement/prospectus, all of FNF's core title insurance, real estate, technology and mortgage related businesses, assets and liabilities attributed to FNF's FNF Group tracking stock that are not held by Splitco would remain with FNF. We refer to the redemption and the resulting separation of Splitco from FNF pursuant to the redemption as the Split-Off. The Split-Off is conditioned on the receipt of the requisite stockholder approval of the redemption proposal, among other things. Holders of FNFV common stock will also be asked to consider and vote on a proposal (the adjournment proposal, and together with the redemption proposal, the Proposals) to authorize the adjournment of the special meeting by FNF to permit further solicitation of proxies, if necessary or appropriate, if sufficient votes are not represented at the special meeting to approve the redemption proposal.

        If all conditions to the Split-Off are satisfied or, where permissible, waived, on the date designated by the FNF board of directors (the redemption date), FNF would redeem all of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for outstanding shares of Splitco common stock, amounting to a redemption on a per share basis of each outstanding share of FNFV common stock for one share of Splitco common stock. In such case, cash will be paid in lieu of any fractional shares (after taking into account all of the shares of FNFV common stock and Splitco common stock owned of record by each holder thereof, as applicable).

        As of October 16, 2017, there were 64,864,950 outstanding shares of FNFV common stock. Based on these outstanding share numbers, Splitco expects to issue approximately 64,864,950 shares of Splitco common stock (not taking into account Splitco common stock that will be issued to FNF or its subsidiaries in connection with the Split-Off in exchange for a $100.0 million cash contribution to Splitco, as disclosed in this proxy statement/prospectus). Splitco expects to list its Splitco common stock on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol "CNNE".

        The FNF board of directors has unanimously approved each of the Proposals and unanimously recommends that the holders of FNFV common stock vote "FOR" each of the Proposals.

        Your vote is important, regardless of the number of shares you own. Whether or not you plan to attend the special meeting, please vote as soon as possible to make sure that your shares are represented.

        Thank you for your cooperation and continued support and interest in FNF.

    Very truly yours,

 

 

Raymond R. Quirk
Chief Executive Officer

INDEX TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

  F-1

        This proxy statement/prospectus describes the businesses and assets of Splitco as though they were its businesses and assets for all historical periods described. However, Splitco is a newly formed entity that will not have conducted any operations prior to the Split-Off and instead will have had such businesses and assets transferred to it prior to the Split-Off. References in this proxy statement/prospectus to the historical assets, liabilities, businesses or activities of Splitco's businesses or the businesses in which it has interests are intended to refer to the historical assets, liabilities, businesses or activities as they were conducted or held by FNF prior to the Split-Off. Upon completion of the Split-Off, Splitco will be a separate publicly traded company. The historical combined financial information of Splitco as part of FNF contained in this proxy statement/prospectus is not necessarily indicative of Splitco's future financial position, future results of operations or future cash flows, nor does it reflect what the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of Splitco would have been had it been operated as a stand-alone company during the periods presented.

        You should not assume that the information contained in this proxy statement/prospectus is accurate as of any date other than the date set forth on the cover page of this proxy statement/prospectus. Changes to the information contained herein may occur after that date and we do not undertake any obligation to update the information unless required to do so by law.

Table of Contents


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

        The questions and answers below highlight only selected information about the special meeting and how to vote your shares. You should read carefully the entire proxy statement/prospectus, including the additional documents incorporated by reference herein, to fully understand the Proposals.

Q:
When and where is the special meeting?

A:
The special meeting will be held at [    ·    ] Eastern time, on [    ·    ], 2017 at the corporate offices of Fidelity National Financial, Inc., 601 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32204.

Q:
What is the record date for the special meeting?

A:
The record date for the special meeting is on October 6, 2017. All record holders as of the close of business on October 6, 2017 are entitled to vote.

Q:
What is the purpose of the special meeting?

A:
To consider and vote on the Proposals.

Q:
What stockholder vote is required to approve the Proposals?

A:
Each of the Proposals requires the approval of the holders of record, as of the record date for the special meeting, of FNFV common stock representing a majority of the aggregate voting power of the FNFV common stock that are present in person or by proxy at the special meeting, voting together as a separate class.
Q:
How many votes do stockholders have?

A:
At the special meeting, holders of FNFV common stock have one vote per share. Only shares owned as of the record date are eligible to vote at the special meeting.

Q:
What if the redemption proposal is not approved?

A:
The redemption proposal must be approved for the Split-Off to be completed. If the redemption proposal is not approved, no shares of FNFV common stock will be redeemed for shares of Splitco common stock.

Q:
Why is FNF seeking approval of the adjournment proposal?

A:
To ensure that a sufficient number of shares of FNFV common stock are present and entitled to vote at the special meeting on the redemption proposal, FNF may need to adjourn the special meeting to solicit additional proxies. If no adjournment were effected and the redemption proposal did not receive the requisite approval at the special meeting because there were insufficient votes represented at the special meeting, FNF would need to call a new special meeting at which it may again seek the approval of holders of FNFV common stock of the redemption proposal, which could significantly delay FNF's ability to implement the Split-Off.

Table of Contents

Q:
What do stockholders need to do to vote on the Proposals?

A:
After carefully reading and considering the information contained in this proxy statement/prospectus, you should complete, sign, date and return the enclosed proxy card by mail, or vote by the telephone or through the Internet, in each case as soon as possible so that your shares are represented and voted at the special meeting. Instructions for voting by telephone or through the Internet are printed on the proxy voting instructions attached to the proxy card. In order to vote through the Internet, have your proxy card available so you can input the required information from the card, and log into the Internet website address shown on the proxy card. When you log on to the Internet website address, you will receive instructions on how to vote your shares. The telephone and Internet voting procedures are designed to authenticate votes cast by use of a personal identification number, which will be provided to each voting stockholder separately. Alternatively, you may also vote in person at the special meeting.
Q:
If shares are held in "street name" by a broker, bank or other nominee, will the broker, bank or other nominee vote those shares for the beneficial owner on the Proposals?

A:
If you hold your shares in street name and do not provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other nominee, your shares will not be voted on the Proposals. Accordingly, your broker, bank or other nominee will vote your shares held in "street name" on the Proposals only if you provide instructions on how to vote.
Q:
What if I do not vote on the Proposals?

A:
If you do not submit a proxy or you do not vote in person at the special meeting, your shares will not be counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining a quorum, but your failure to vote will have no effect on determining whether either of the Proposals is approved (if a quorum is present). If you submit a proxy but do not indicate how you want to vote, your proxy will be counted as a vote "FOR" each of the Proposals.

2


Table of Contents

Q:
What if a quorum is not present at the special meeting?

A:
In order to conduct the business of the special meeting, a quorum must be present. This means that stockholders who hold shares representing at least a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote at the special meeting must be represented at the special meeting either in person or by proxy. If a quorum is not present or represented at the special meeting, the stockholders entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall have the power to adjourn the meeting, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or represented.

Q:
What if I respond and indicate that I am abstaining from voting?

A:
If you submit a proxy in which you indicate that you are abstaining from voting, your shares will count as present for purposes of determining a quorum, but your proxy will have the same effect as a vote "AGAINST" each of the Proposals.

Q:
May stockholders change their vote after returning a proxy card or voting by telephone or over the Internet?

A:
Yes. If you have submitted your proxy and later wish to revoke it, you may do so by doing one of the following: giving written notice to the Corporate Secretary prior to the special meeting; submitting another proxy bearing a later date (in any of the permitted forms) prior to the special meeting; or casting a ballot in person at the special meeting.

SUMMARY

        The following summary includes information contained elsewhere in this proxy statement/prospectus. This summary does not contain all of the important information that you should consider before voting on the Proposals. You should read the entire proxy statement/prospectus, including the documents incorporated by reference herein, carefully.

Splitco

        Splitco is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF, and prior to the contribution (as defined below) Splitco will have no assets or operations. Prior to the redemption, except as disclosed in this proxy statement/prospectus, FNF will contribute to Splitco all of the businesses, assets and liabilities attributed to FNF's FNFV Group common stock (including any liabilities relating to the FNFV Group's businesses that were incurred prior to the Split-Off) (such businesses, assets and liabilities, the Splitco Assets and Liabilities, and such contribution, the contribution). Following the contribution, FNF will redeem all of the outstanding shares (the redemption) of FNFV common stock for shares of Splitco common stock, amounting to a redemption on a per share basis of each outstanding share of FNFV common stock for one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share of Splitco (Splitco common stock). In connection with the Split-Off, FNF or its subsidiaries will receive shares of Splitco common stock in exchange for a $100.0 million cash contribution to Splitco (such shares, the FNF Splitco shares) and as a result, following the Split-Off, due to its ownership of the FNF Splitco shares, FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, are expected to own, in the aggregate, approximately 8% of the outstanding shares of Splitco common stock. FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will dispose of such FNF Splitco shares as soon as a disposition is warranted consistent with the business reasons for the ownership of such shares, but in no event later than five years after the Split-Off, and be subject to certain restrictions regarding voting of such Splitco shares. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Voting Agreement." In addition, in connection with the Split-Off, FNF expects to extend a $100.0 million line of credit to Splitco (the revolver note), which will allow Splitco to borrow revolving loans, the proceeds of which may be used for investment purposes and working capital needs, from FNF from time to time. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Revolver Note." This line of credit will be in place of the $100.0 million line of credit which was previously extended by FNF to the FNFV Group upon the formation of the tracking stock.

        Splitco is a holding company, and after the Split-Off will be engaged in actively managing and operating a group of companies and investments with a net asset value of approximately $1,104.9 million as of June 30, 2017. Splitco's business will consist of managing and operating certain majority-owned subsidiaries, as well as making additional majority and minority equity portfolio investments in businesses, in order to achieve superior financial performance and maximize the value of these assets. The businesses that we will have an interest in following the Split-Off primarily consist of the FNFV Group's business and investments, including American Blue Ribbon Holdings, LLC (ABRH), Ceridian Holding, LLC (Ceridian), Triple Tree Holdings LLC, Wine Direct, Inc., Fidelity National Timber Resources, Inc., Fidelity National Environmental Solutions, LLC, Northern California Mortgage Fund, and the debt of Colt Defense, LLC (Colt Defense) (collectively, the portfolio companies).

        Acquisitions will be an important part of our growth strategy, and we may dispose of portfolio companies if we believe the transaction is attractive. On an ongoing basis, with assistance from our advisors, we will actively evaluate possible transactions, such as acquisitions and dispositions of business units and operating assets and business combination transactions. Following the Split-Off, we will have controlling investments in a number of entities which we will actively manage.

        In the future, we may seek to sell certain portfolio companies or other assets to increase our liquidity. Further, our management has stated that we may make acquisitions in lines of business that

4


Table of Contents

are not directly tied to or synergistic with, our core operating segments. Fundamentally our goal will be to acquire and manage quality companies that are well-positioned in their respective industries, run by best in class management teams in industries that have attractive organic and acquired growth opportunities. We will leverage our operational expertise and track record of growing industry leading companies and also our active interaction with the acquired company's management directly or through our board of directors, to ultimately provide value for our stockholders.

        There can be no assurance that any suitable opportunities will arise or that any particular transaction will be completed. FNF has made a number of acquisitions and dispositions over the past several years to strengthen and expand its service offerings and customer base in the various businesses of the FNFV Group and to expand into other businesses where it otherwise saw value.

        In connection with the Split-Off, Splitco expects to enter into certain agreements, including (i) a reorganization agreement with FNF to provide for, among other things, the principal corporate transactions required to effect the Split-Off, certain conditions to the Split-Off and provisions governing the relationship between Splitco and FNF with respect to and resulting from the Split-Off, (ii) a tax matters agreement with FNF that governs FNF's and Splitco's respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to taxes and tax benefits, the filing of tax returns, the control of audits and other tax matters, (iii) a corporate services agreement with FNF, pursuant to which FNF will provide Splitco with certain "back office" services, including insurance administration and risk management services, other services typically performed by FNF's legal, investor relations, tax, human resources, accounting, and internal audit departments, and such other similar services that Splitco may from time to time request or require, (iv) a voting agreement with FNF, pursuant to which FNF agrees to appear or cause all shares of Splitco common stock that FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, own after the Split-Off to be counted as present at any meeting of the stockholders of Splitco, for the purpose of establishing a quorum, and agrees to vote all of such Splitco shares (or cause them to be voted) in the same manner as, and in the same proportion to, all shares voted by holders of Splitco common stock (other than FNF and its subsidiaries), (v) a registration rights agreement pursuant to which FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will receive registration rights with respect to the FNF Splitco shares and (vi) a revolver note with FNF, pursuant to which Splitco may borrow revolving loans, the proceeds of which may be used for investment purposes and working capital needs, from FNF from time to time in an aggregate amount not to exceed $100.0 million. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF."

        Splitco is a Delaware corporation that was incorporated on April 21, 2017. Splitco's principal executive offices are located at 1701 Village Center Circle, Las Vegas, Nevada 89134, and its main telephone number is (702) 323-7334.

FNF's Corporate Structure

        On June 30, 2014, FNF completed a recapitalization of its common stock into two tracking stocks, the FNF Group and the FNFV Group, for the purpose of providing stockholders with greater transparency and increased investor choice, among other reasons. Both the FNF Group and FNFV Group common stocks began regular trading on July 1, 2014 and both classes of common stock continue to trade on the NYSE. Tracking stock is a type of common stock that the issuing company intends to reflect or "track" the economic performance of a particular business or "group," rather than the economic performance of the company as a whole. While the FNF Group and the FNFV Group have separate collections of businesses, assets and liabilities attributed to them, no group is a separate legal entity and therefore no group can own assets, issue securities or enter into legally binding agreements. Holders of tracking stocks have no direct claim to the group's stock or assets and are not

5


Table of Contents

represented by separate boards of directors. Instead, holders of tracking stock are stockholders of the parent corporation, FNF, with a single board of directors and subject to all of the risks and liabilities of the parent corporation.

        The FNF Group consists primarily of FNF's businesses that provide (i) title insurance, technology and transaction services to the real estate and mortgage industries (including FNF's title insurance underwriters Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title Insurance Company, Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company, Alamo Title Company and National Title Insurance of New York) and (ii) mortgage technology solutions and transaction services (such services being provided primarily through FNF's majority-owned subsidiaries, Black Knight Financial Services, LLC and ServiceLink Holdings, LLC).

        The FNFV Group consists primarily of businesses and investments that FNF controls, operates or holds, as applicable, including American Blue Ribbon Holdings, LLC (ABRH), Ceridian Holding, LLC (Ceridian), Triple Tree Holdings LLC, Wine Direct, Inc., Fidelity National Timber Resources, Inc., Fidelity National Environmental Solutions, LLC, Northern California Mortgage Fund and the debt of Colt Defense, LLC (Colt Defense) (collectively, the portfolio companies).

        Although the public markets have responded favorably to these two tracking stocks, FNF believes that additional stockholder value can be created by separating the two tracking stocks into separate legal entities. Accordingly, in December 2016, the FNF board of directors determined to pursue the Split-Off. See "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal—Reasons for the Split-Off."

The Proposals

        In accordance with the terms of the FNF charter, the FNF board of directors has determined to seek the approval of the holders of FNFV common stock to redeem each outstanding share of FNFV common stock, for shares of Splitco common stock. The redemption is summarized under "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal" below. In connection with the Split-Off, except as described in this proxy statement/prospectus, no changes will be made to the assets and liabilities that are attributed to the FNF Group.

        Pursuant to the redemption proposal, holders of FNFV common stock are being asked to approve the redemption by FNF of all of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for shares of Splitco common stock, amounting to a redemption on a per share basis of each outstanding share of FNFV common stock for one share of Splitco common stock, in accordance with the FNF charter. As described herein, cash will be paid in lieu of fractional shares.

        Pursuant to the adjournment proposal, holders of FNFV common stock are also being asked to approve the authorization of the adjournment of the special meeting by FNF to permit further solicitation of proxies, if necessary or appropriate, if sufficient votes are not represented at the special meeting to approve the redemption proposal.

        The following is a brief summary of the terms of the Proposals and the Split-Off. See "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal" and "Adjournment Proposal" for a more detailed description of the matters described below.

Q:
What is the Split-Off?

A:
If all conditions to the Split-Off are satisfied or, where permissible, waived, FNF will redeem 100% of the FNFV common stock outstanding on the redemption date for outstanding shares of Splitco common stock. Upon completion of the Split-Off, Splitco will be a separate, publicly traded company.

Table of Contents

Q:
Can FNF decide not to complete the Split-Off?

A:
Yes. The FNF board of directors has reserved the right, in its sole discretion, to amend, modify, delay or abandon the Split-Off and related transactions at any time prior to the redemption date. In addition, the Split-Off is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, some of which may be waived by the FNF board of directors in its sole discretion. See "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal—Conditions to the Split-Off." In the event the FNF board of directors amends, modifies, delays or abandons the Split-Off, FNF intends to promptly issue a press release and file a Current Report on Form 8-K to report such event.

Q:
What will I receive in the Split-Off?

A:
On the redemption date, each outstanding share of FNFV common stock will be redeemed for one outstanding share of Splitco common stock. By way of example, a holder of 100 shares of FNFV common stock would receive 100 shares of Splitco common stock. This redemption ratio was determined by the board of directors of FNF, in accordance with the FNF charter, based on their good faith determination of the percentage of the fair value of FNFV that is to be represented by Splitco.

    Any holder which would otherwise receive a fraction of a share of Splitco common stock or retain a fraction of a share of FNFV common stock will instead receive cash in lieu of any fractional shares.

Q:
Is the completion of the Split-Off subject to any conditions?

A:
The FNF board of directors has reserved the right, in its sole discretion, to amend, modify, delay or abandon the Split-Off and the related transactions at any time prior to the redemption effective time. In addition, the completion of the Split-Off and related transactions are subject to the satisfaction (as determined by the FNF board of directors in its sole discretion) of the following conditions, certain of which may be waived by the FNF board of directors in its sole discretion:

        (1)   the receipt of the requisite stockholder approval of the redemption proposal at the special meeting;

        (2)   the opinion from Deloitte Tax LLP (Deloitte Tax) dated as of the date of the closing of the redemption (the closing date), in form and substance reasonably acceptable to FNF, substantially to the effect that the contribution and the redemption should qualify as a tax-free reorganization under Sections 368(a)(1)(D) and 355 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), and a distribution to which Sections 355 and 361 of the Code applies, respectively;

        (3)   the effectiveness under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the Securities Act) of the Registration Statement on Form S-4, of which this proxy statement/prospectus forms a part, and the effectiveness of the registration of the Splitco common stock under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the Exchange Act);

        (4)   the approval of the NYSE for the listing of our common stock; and

        (5)   the receipt of any regulatory or contractual consents or approvals that the FNF board of directors determines to obtain.

    The first four conditions set forth above are non-waivable. The FNF board of directors may, however, waive the fifth condition set forth above. In the event the FNF board of directors waives a material condition to the Split-Off, FNF intends to promptly issue a press release and file a Current Report on Form 8-K to report such event.

Table of Contents

Q:
What is being distributed in the Split-Off?

A:
Approximately 64,864,950 shares of Splitco's common stock will be distributed in the Split-Off (not taking into account the FNF Splitco shares), based on the number of shares of FNFV common stock outstanding on October 16, 2017. The exact number of shares to be distributed in the Split-Off will not be known until the redemption effective time.

Q:
When will the Split-Off be effective?

A:
FNF intends to effect the Split-Off on the redemption date, which will be determined by the board of directors of FNF following the satisfaction or, where permissible, waiver of the conditions to the Split-Off (other than those which by their terms can only be satisfied concurrently with the completion of the Split-Off). FNF will issue a press release announcing the redemption date once established. The redemption will be as soon as practicable following the satisfaction or, where permissible, waiver, of all conditions to the Split-Off on a date to be designated by the board of directors of FNF (the redemption effective time). At such time, each holder of FNFV common stock will cease to own all of their shares of FNFV common stock but will receive shares of Splitco.

Q:
Why is FNF contributing $100.0 million to Splitco prior to the redemption?

A:
Prior to the redemption, FNF and its subsidiaries, as applicable, will contribute an aggregate $100.0 million to Splitco in exchange for Splitco shares (see "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal—The Redemption; Redemption Ratio" and "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF"). The $100.0 million will be used by Splitco following the Split-Off as working capital to support operations and make investments.

Q:
What will the relationship be between Splitco and FNF after the Split-Off?

A:
Upon completion of the Split-Off, Splitco and FNF will operate as separate companies, and FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, are expected to own, in the aggregate, approximately 8% of Splitco. FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will dispose of such Splitco shares as soon as a disposition is warranted consistent with the business reasons for the ownership of such shares, but in no event later than five years after the Split-Off, and be subject to certain restrictions regarding voting of such Splitco shares (see "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Voting Agreement").

In connection with the Split-Off, Splitco and FNF (or certain of their subsidiaries) are entering into certain agreements in order to govern the ongoing relationships between Splitco and FNF after the Split-Off and to provide for an orderly transition. Such agreements will include (i) a reorganization agreement with FNF to provide for, among other things, the principal corporate transactions (including the internal restructuring) required to effect the Split-Off, certain conditions to the Split-Off and provisions governing the relationship between Splitco and FNF with respect to and resulting from the Split-Off, (ii) a tax matters agreement with FNF that governs FNF's and Splitco's respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to taxes and tax benefits, the filing of tax returns, the control of audits and other tax matters, (iii) a corporate services agreement with FNF, pursuant to which FNF will provide Splitco with certain "back office" services, (iv) a voting agreement with FNF, pursuant to which FNF agrees to appear or cause all shares of Splitco common stock that FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, own after the Split-Off to be counted as present at any meeting of the stockholders of Splitco, for the purpose of establishing a quorum, and agrees to vote all of such Splitco shares (or cause them to be voted) in the same manner as, and in the same proportion to, all shares voted by holders of Splitco common stock (other than FNF and its subsidiaries), (v) a registration rights agreement pursuant to which

8


Table of Contents

    FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will receive registration rights with respect to the FNF Splitco shares and (vi) a revolver note with FNF, pursuant to which Splitco may borrow revolving loans, the proceeds of which may be used for investment purposes and working capital needs, from FNF from time to time in an aggregate amount not to exceed $100.0 million. For more information, see "Q: Does the Split-Off create any conflicts of interest for Splitco's management?" below and "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF."

    In addition, in connection with the Split-Off, FNF expects to extend a $100.0 million line of credit to Splitco, the terms of which are yet to be determined. This line of credit will be in place of the $100.0 million line of credit which was previously extended by FNF to the FNFV Group upon the formation of the tracking stock.

Q:
Does the Split-Off create any conflicts of interest for Splitco's board of directors or management?

A:
After the Split-Off, four of our executive officers, Brent B. Bickett, Richard L. Cox, Michael L. Gravelle and David Ducommun, also will be employed by FNF or FNF's subsidiaries and one of our directors, William P. Foley, II, also will serve on the boards of directors of FNF or its subsidiaries. Our executive officers and members of our board of directors have fiduciary duties to our stockholders. Likewise, any such persons who serve in similar capacities at FNF or any other public company have fiduciary duties to that company's stockholders. We also are party to a variety of related party agreements and relationships with FNF and certain of FNF's subsidiaries and FNF and subsidiaries of FNF will have an ownership interest in Splitco following the Split-Off. See "Risk Factors—Factors Relating to the Split-Off and the Proposals—Our company has an overlapping director and overlapping officers with FNF, which may lead to conflicting interests," and "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal—Interests of Certain Persons."

Q:
What are the reasons for the Split-Off?

A:
On June 30, 2014, FNF completed a recapitalization of its common stock into two tracking stocks, the FNF Group and the FNFV Group, for the purpose of providing stockholders with greater transparency and increased investor choice, among other reasons. Although the public markets have responded favorably to these two tracking stocks, FNF believes that additional stockholder value can be created by separating the two tracking stocks into separate legal entities. Accordingly, in December 2016, the FNF board of directors determined to pursue the Split-Off. The Split-Off is expected to enhance FNF's eligibility to be included in certain stock indices, thereby enhancing the liquidity and appeal of the FNF common stock, not only to its investors but also as acquisition currency and equity compensation. Because Standard & Poor's generally does not allow for tracking stocks to be included in their stock market indices, FNF was removed from the S&P Midcap 400 Index in July 2014 when both the FNF Group and the FNFV Group became tracking stocks. After the Split-Off, FNF will revert back to having a single class of outstanding common stock and again be eligible for inclusion in S&P indices, in particular the S&P 500 Index or the S&P Midcap 400 Index. The Split-Off is also expected to enhance Splitco's ability to issue equity for strategic acquisitions and other business combinations by creating a more efficiently priced equity security for Splitco and to enable it and FNF to more effectively tailor equity incentives for their respective management and employees with less dilution to public stockholders.

For a discussion of additional reasons, factors, costs and risks associated with the Split-Off considered by the FNF board of directors, see "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal—Reasons for the Split-Off."

Q:
What do I have to do to participate in the Split-Off?

A:
FNF will deliver or make available to all holders of certificated shares of FNFV common stock, from and after the redemption date, a letter of transmittal with which to surrender their shares that are subject to redemption. These holders must surrender their stock certificates together with the letter of transmittal (and any other documentation required thereby) in order to receive their Splitco shares in the Split-Off. See "Q: Will I receive certificates representing shares of Splitco common stock following the redemption?" below.

Accounts holding shares of FNFV common stock in book-entry form will be debited as of the redemption effective time, and promptly thereafter credited with the applicable number of shares of Splitco common stock. Holders of shares of FNFV common stock held in book-entry form will not need to take any action to receive their Splitco shares in the Split-Off.

Q:
Will I receive certificates representing shares of Splitco common stock following the redemption?

A:
No. In the redemption, no physical certificates representing shares of Splitco common stock will be delivered to stockholders. Instead, FNF, with the assistance of Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, Inc. (Continental), the exchange agent, will electronically distribute shares of Splitco common stock in book-entry form to you or your bank or brokerage firm on your behalf. If you are a record holder of FNFV common stock on the redemption date, Continental will mail you a book-entry account statement that reflects your shares of Splitco common stock. If you are a beneficial owner of FNFV common stock (but not a record holder) on the redemption date, your bank or brokerage firm will credit your account with the shares of Splitco common stock that you are entitled to receive.

Q:
How will outstanding FNFV restricted stock awards be treated?

A:
At the redemption effective time, each share of FNFV common stock subject to vesting and transfer restrictions (the FNFV restricted shares) will be redeemed for one share of Splitco common stock (such Splitco common stock issued to holders of FNFV restricted shares pursuant to the redemption, the Splitco restricted shares). The Splitco restricted shares will continue to have and be subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such FNFV restricted shares immediately before the redemption (including vesting and transfer restrictions).

Q:
What are the terms of the Splitco common stock?

A:
Each share of Splitco common stock has the following rights:

each share of Splitco common stock entitles its holder to one vote per share on all matters to be voted upon by the stockholders;

subject to preferences that may be applicable to any outstanding preferred stock, the holders of shares of common stock are entitled to receive ratably such dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by the board of directors out of funds legally available therefor; and

in the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of our affairs, the holders of common stock are entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining after payment of our debts and other liabilities, subject to prior distribution rights of preferred stock, then outstanding, if any.

See "Description of Capital Stock of Splitco" for more information.

Table of Contents

Q:
How do shares of FNFV common stock compare to shares of Splitco common stock?

A:
The FNFV common stock is a tracking stock of FNF. Accordingly, the FNFV common stock includes terms that are specific to a tracking stock and would not typically apply to a regular common stock, such as conversion at the option of the company, redemption for stock of a subsidiary and mandatory conversion, redemption or dividend provisions upon an asset disposition. None of these tracking stock-specific terms will apply to the Splitco common stock.

See "Description of Capital Stock of Splitco" and "Comparison of Rights of Stockholders Before and After the Split-Off" for more information.

Q:
What are the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Split-Off?

A:
FNF has structured the Split-Off to be treated as a tax-free transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In addition, FNF has received a private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding an issue relating to the tax-free treatment of the Split-Off, and the Split-Off is conditioned upon the receipt by FNF of the opinion of Deloitte Tax to the effect that the Split-Off should qualify as a tax-free transaction under Section 368(a), Section 355, and related provisions of the Code and a distribution to which Sections 355 and 361 of the Code applies. Accordingly, except with respect to the receipt of cash in lieu of fractional shares, FNF and holders of FNFV common stock generally should recognize no gain or loss with respect to the Split-Off. The ruling is, and the opinion will be, based upon various factual representations and assumptions, as well as certain undertakings made by FNF and Splitco. Any inaccuracy in the representations or assumptions upon which such ruling or tax opinion is based, or failure by FNF or Splitco to comply with any undertakings made in connection with such ruling or tax opinion, could alter the conclusions reached in such ruling or tax opinion. Opinions with respect to these matters are not binding on the IRS or the courts. As a result, the conclusions expressed in these opinions could be challenged by the IRS and a court could sustain such a challenge. The receipt of the opinion, as well as certain other conditions to the Split-Off, may not be waived by the FNF board of directors.

If, notwithstanding the receipt of the IRS ruling and the opinion of Deloitte Tax, the Split-Off was determined to be a taxable transaction, each holder of FNFV common stock who receives shares of Splitco common stock in the Split-Off would generally be treated as either (i) recognizing a capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the fair market value of the shares of Splitco common stock received and the stockholder's tax basis in the FNFV common stock exchanged therefor, or (ii) in certain circumstances, receiving a taxable distribution in an amount equal to the fair market value of the shares of Splitco common stock received. FNF would generally recognize taxable gain equal to the excess of the fair market value of the shares of Splitco common stock distributed by FNF in the Split-Off over FNF's tax basis in such stock.

See "Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Split-Off" for more information regarding the ruling, the opinion of Deloitte Tax and the potential tax consequences to you of the Split-Off.

Q:
Does Splitco intend to pay cash dividends?

A:
No. Splitco currently intends to retain future earnings, if any, following the Split-Off to finance the expansion of its businesses. As a result, Splitco does not expect to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. All decisions regarding the payment of dividends by Splitco will be made by its board of directors, from time to time, in accordance with applicable law.

Table of Contents

Q:
Where will Splitco common stock trade?

A:
Currently, there is no public market for Splitco common stock. Subject to the consummation of the Split-Off, Splitco expects to list its common stock on the NYSE under the symbol "CNNE".

Splitco expects that its common stock will begin trading on the first trading day following the redemption date. Splitco cannot predict the trading prices for its common stock when such trading begins.

Q:
What costs and risks were considered by the board of directors of FNF in determining whether to effect the Split-Off?

A:
The FNF board of directors also considered a number of costs and risks associated with the Split-Off in approving the Split-Off, including the following:

the risk of being unable to achieve the benefits expected from the Split-Off;

the loss of synergies from operating as one company, particularly in administrative and support functions;

the potential disruption of the businesses of FNF, as its management and employees devote time and resources to completing the Split-Off;

the substantial costs of effecting the Split-Off and continued compliance with legal and other requirements applicable to two separate public reporting companies;

the potential tax liabilities that could arise from the Split-Off, including the possibility that the IRS could successfully assert that the Split-Off is taxable to holders of FNFV common stock and/or to FNF. In the event such tax liabilities were to arise, Splitco's potential indemnity obligation to FNF is not subject to a cap; and

the potential for having to register Splitco as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (40 Act) in the future, such as in the event Splitco becomes primarily engaged in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading in securities and there is no exemption or grace period available to us at that time.

The FNF board of directors evaluated the costs and benefits of the transaction as a whole and did not find it necessary to assign relative weights to the specific factors considered. The FNF board of directors concluded, however, that the potential benefits of the Split-Off outweighed its potential costs, and that separating our company from FNF through the Split-Off is appropriate, advisable and in the best interests of FNF and its stockholders. The FNF board of directors did not consider alternatives to the Split-Off due to the nature of the particular assets and businesses to be held by Splitco upon completion of the Split-Off.

Q:
What will happen to the listing of FNF common stock?

A:
The FNF common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE following the Split-Off.

Q:
Will I have appraisal rights in connection with the Split-Off?

A:
No. Holders of FNFV common stock are not entitled to appraisal rights in connection with the Split-Off.

Q:
Who is the transfer agent and registrar for Splitco common stock?

A:
Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, Inc., 17 Battery Place, 8th Floor, New York NY 10004, telephone: (212) 509-4000.

RISK FACTORS

        An investment in Splitco common stock involves risks. You should consider carefully the risks described below together with all of the other information included in this proxy statement/prospectus in deciding whether to vote to approve the Proposals. Any of the following risks, if realized, could have a material adverse effect on the value of Splitco's common stock.

The risks described below are considered to be the most material. However, there may be other unknown or unpredictable economic, business, competitive, regulatory or other factors that also could have material adverse effects on Splitco's businesses. Past financial performance may not be a reliable indicator of future performance and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results or trends in future periods. If any of the events below were to occur, Splitco's businesses, prospects, financial condition, results of operations and/or cash flows could be materially adversely affected. This proxy statement/prospectus contains forward-looking statements that contain risks and uncertainties. Please refer to the section entitled "Cautionary Statements Concerning Forward Looking Statements" of this proxy statement/prospectus in connection with your consideration of the risk factors and other important factors that may affect future results described below.

        For purposes of these risk factors, unless the context otherwise indicates, we have assumed that the redemption proposal has been approved and that the Split-Off has occurred.

Our ability to pay interest on our outstanding debt, if any, and our other obligations and to pay dividends, if any, is dependent on the ability of our subsidiaries to pay dividends or make other distributions or payments to us (such ability of our subsidiaries also being subject to certain restrictions under their respective credit agreements and other debt instruments, as applicable). If our portfolio companies are not able to pay dividends to us, we may not be able to meet our obligations or pay dividends on our common stock. The ability of the FNFV Group portfolio companies, which will become portfolio companies of our company following the completion of the Split-Off, to pay dividends or to make other payments or advances to us depends on their individual operating results and any statutory, regulatory or contractual restrictions to which they may be or may become subject.

We have no operating history as a separate company upon which you can evaluate our performance.

        We do not have an operating history as a separate public company. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that our business will be successful on a long-term basis. We may not be able to grow our businesses as planned and may not be profitable.

We may become subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940.

        We do not believe that, upon completion of the Split-Off, we will be subject to regulation under the 40 Act. We were formed for the purpose of effecting the Split-Off and for controlling, operating or holding, as applicable, the FNFV Group's business and investments, including the portfolio companies. We intend to engage primarily in the business of managing and operating our controlled subsidiaries. Our officers and any employees who provide services to us pursuant to the terms of the corporate services agreement with FNF will devote their activities with respect to us to the businesses of these portfolio companies. Following the Split-Off, our interest in the portfolio companies will comprise substantially all of our assets and substantially all of our income, if any, will be derived from restaurant revenue from ABRH and dividends and other distributions made on our interests in portfolio companies. Based on these factors, we believe that we are not an investment company under the 40 Act, including under Section 3(b)(1) of the 40 Act. If, at any time, we become primarily engaged in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading in securities, we could become subject to regulation under the 40 Act. Following any such change in our business and after giving effect to any applicable grace periods, we may be required to register as an investment company, which could result in significant registration and compliance costs, could require changes to our corporate governance structure and financial reporting, and could restrict our activities going forward. In addition, if we were to become inadvertently subject to the 40 Act, any violation of the 40 Act could subject us to material adverse consequences, including potentially significant regulatory penalties and the possibility that certain of our contracts would be deemed unenforceable.

Factors Relating to Splitco's Restaurant Businesses

There is no assurance that the pending transaction related to our Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub restaurant concept will be consummated in a timely manner or at all.

        On August 3, 2017, Fidelity National Financial Ventures, LLC (FNFV LLC) entered into a definitive agreement (the 99 Merger Agreement), by and among J. Alexander's Holdings, Inc. (J. Alexander's), its subsidiary J. Alexander's Holdings, LLC (JAX Op), Nitro Merger Sub, Inc. (Merger Sub), a wholly-owned subsidiary of JAX Op, Fidelity Newport Holdings, LLC (FNH, together with FNFV LLC, the 99 Sellers), and 99 Restaurants, LLC (99 Restaurants), to merge Merger Sub with and into 99 Restaurants, whereupon the separate existence of Merger Sub shall cease and 99 Restaurants shall continue as the surviving company and a subsidiary of JAX Op (the 99 Merger). 99 Restaurants is the owner of our Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub restaurant concept. Pursuant to the 99 Merger Agreement, FNH will exchange 100% of its ownership interest in 99 Restaurants for common share equivalents of J. Alexander's (as described below).

        Under the terms of the 99 Merger Agreement, 99 Restaurants will be valued at an enterprise value of $199 million, with consideration to be paid to the 99 Sellers by J. Alexander's and JAX Op consisting of newly issued equity valued at $179 million, issued in the form of 16,272,727 new Class B Units of JAX Op and 16,272,727 shares of new Class B Common Stock of J. Alexander's, and the assumption of $20 million of net debt. For purposes of the 99 Merger, each Class B Unit, together with one share of Class B Common Stock, will be issued at an agreed price of $11.00. Prior to the 99 Merger, 99 Restaurants will assume $60 million of currently outstanding debt of certain of its affiliates and FNFV LLC will contribute $40 million to 99 Restaurants in exchange for newly issued membership interest in 99 Restaurants. The proceeds of this cash contribution will be used by J. Alexander's to repay a portion of the assumed debt immediately following the closing of the 99 Merger. William P. Foley, II will join the J. Alexander's Board of Directors and it is expected that Lonnie J. Stout II will remain Chief Executive Officer of the combined company.

        Closing of the 99 Merger is contingent on customary closing conditions, including approval of the shareholders of J. Alexander's and certain regulatory clearances, and is expected in the fourth quarter

of 2017, but there is no assurance that the 99 Merger will be consummated in a timely manner or at all. The potential risks and uncertainties that could impact the consummation of the 99 Merger include, among others, that the J. Alexander's shareholders do not approve the transaction, the inability to obtain or delays in obtaining the necessary regulatory approvals, or satisfaction of other conditions to the closing of the 99 Merger, and the existence or occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the 99 Merger Agreement. The information set forth in the "Selected Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Data" section of this proxy statement/prospectus assumes the consummation of the 99 Merger, and does not reflect or consider the potential risks and uncertainties described above or any other factors that may impact the consummation of the 99 Merger.

General macroeconomic factors, including unemployment, energy prices and interest rates, and certain economic and business factors specific to the restaurant and bakery industries that are largely out of our restaurant businesses' control may materially and adversely affect consumer behavior and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        General economic conditions may materially and adversely affect the financial condition and results of operations of our restaurant businesses, which we also refer to as our Restaurant Group companies. Recessionary economic cycles, a protracted economic slowdown, a worsening economy or continued weakness in the economy, increased unemployment, increased energy prices, rising interest rates, a downgrade of the United States (U.S.) government's long-term credit rating, financial market volatility and unpredictability or other national, regional and local regulatory and economic conditions or other industry-wide cost pressures could affect consumer behavior and spending for restaurant dining occasions and result in increased pressure with respect to our Restaurant Group companies' pricing, guest count levels and commodity costs, which could lead to a decline in our Restaurant Group companies' sales and earnings. Job losses, foreclosures, bankruptcies and falling home prices could cause customers to make fewer discretionary purchases, and any significant decrease in our Restaurant Group companies' guest counts or profit will negatively impact their financial performance. In addition, if gasoline, natural gas, electricity and other energy costs increase, or credit card, home mortgage and other borrowing costs increase with rising interest rates, our Restaurant Group companies' customers may have lower disposable income and reduce the frequency with which they dine at restaurants, may spend less during each visit at our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants or may choose more inexpensive restaurants. These factors could also cause the Restaurant Group companies to, among other things, reduce the number and frequency of new restaurant openings, close restaurants or delay the reimaging of the Restaurant Group companies' existing restaurant locations.

        Furthermore, we cannot predict the effects that actual or threatened armed conflicts, terrorist attacks, efforts to combat terrorism, including military action against any foreign state or local group located in a foreign state, heightened security requirements on local, regional, national or international economies or a failure to protect information systems for critical infrastructure, such as the electrical grid and telecommunications systems, could have on the Restaurant Group companies' operations, the economy or consumer confidence generally. Any of these events could affect consumer spending patterns or result in increased costs for the Restaurant Group companies due to security measures.

        The business results of our Restaurant Group companies depend on a number of industry-specific factors as well, many of which are beyond the Restaurant Group companies' control. The full service dining sector of the restaurant industry is affected by seasonal fluctuation of sales volumes, consumer confidence, consumer spending patterns and consumer preferences, including changes in consumer tastes and dietary habits, and the level of consumer acceptance of our restaurant brands. The performance of individual restaurants may also be materially and adversely affected by factors such as demographic trends, severe weather, traffic patterns and the type, number and location of competing restaurants.

17


Table of Contents

        Unfavorable changes in the above factors or in other business and economic conditions affecting our Restaurant Group companies' customers or industry could increase their costs, reduce guest counts in some or all of their restaurants or impose practical limits on pricing, any of which could lower their profit margins and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

The Restaurant Group companies could face significant competition for customers, real estate and employees and competitive pressure to adapt to changes in conditions driving customer demand. The Restaurant Group companies' inability to compete effectively may affect guest counts, sales and profit margins, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The restaurant industry is intensely competitive with a substantial number of restaurant operators that compete directly and indirectly with the Restaurant Group companies in respect to price, service, ambiance, brand, customer service, dining experience, location, food quality and variety and value perception of menu items and there are other well established competitors with substantially greater financial and other resources than the Restaurant Group companies. Some of our Restaurant Group companies' competitors advertise on national television, which may provide them with greater awareness and name recognition than our Restaurant Group companies can achieve through their advertising efforts. There is also active competition for management personnel and attractive suitable real estate sites. Consumer tastes and perceptions, nutritional and dietary trends, guest count patterns and the type, number and location of competing restaurants often affect the restaurant business, and our Restaurant Group companies' competitors may react more efficiently and effectively to those conditions. For instance, if prevailing health or dietary preferences or perceptions of our Restaurant Group companies' products cause consumers to avoid certain menu items or products our Restaurant Group companies offer in favor of foods that are perceived as more healthy, and such choices by consumers could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. Further, our Restaurant Group companies face growing competition from the supermarket industry, with the improvement of their "convenient meals" in the deli and prepared food sections, from quick service and fast casual restaurants and online food delivery services as a result of food and beverage offerings by those food providers. As our Restaurant Group companies' competitors expand operations in markets where our restaurant businesses operate or expect to operate, we expect competition to intensify. If our Restaurant Group companies are unable to continue to compete effectively, their guest counts, sales and profit margins could decline, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Historically, customer spending patterns for the Restaurant Group companies' restaurants are generally highest in the fourth quarter of the year and lowest in the third quarter of the year. Sales activity during the holidays may affect seasonal sales volumes in some of the markets in which our restaurant businesses operate. The quarterly results of our Restaurant Group companies have been and will continue to be affected by the timing of new restaurant openings and their associated costs (which are often materially greater during the first several months of operation than thereafter), restaurant closures and exit-related costs, labor availability and costs for hourly and management personnel, profitability of restaurants, especially in new markets, trends in comparable restaurant sales, changes in borrowings and interest rates, changes in consumer preferences and competitive conditions, fluctuations in food and commodity prices, fluctuations in costs attributable to public company compliance and impairments of goodwill, intangible assets and property, fixtures and equipment. As a result of these and other factors, the Restaurant Group companies' financial results for any quarter may not be indicative of the results that may be achieved for a full fiscal year.

If our restaurant businesses are unable to effectively grow revenue and profitability at certain of their locations, our Restaurant Group companies may be required to record impairment charges to their restaurant assets, the carrying value of their goodwill or other intangible assets, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

        Our Restaurant Group companies assess the potential impairment of their long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of the assets or asset group may not be recoverable. Factors considered include, but are not limited to, significant underperformance relative to historical or projected future operating results, significant changes in the manner in which an asset is being used, an expectation that an asset will be disposed of significantly before the end of its previously estimated useful life and significant negative industry or economic trends. Our Restaurant Group companies annually review and compare the carrying value of intangible assets, including goodwill, to the fair value. We cannot accurately predict the amount and timing of any recorded impairment to our Restaurant Group companies' assets. Should the value of goodwill or other intangible or long-lived assets become impaired, there could be a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

Increased commodity, energy and other costs could decrease our Restaurant Group companies' profit margins or cause the Restaurant Group companies to limit or otherwise modify their menus, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The cost, availability and quality of ingredients restaurant operations use to prepare their food is subject to a range of factors, many of which are beyond their control. A significant component of our restaurant businesses' costs will be related to food commodities, including beef, pork, chicken, seafood, poultry, dairy products, oils, produce, fruit and flour and other related costs such as energy and transportation over which we may have little control, which can be subject to significant price fluctuations due to seasonal shifts, climate conditions, industry demand, changes in international commodity markets and other factors. If there is a substantial increase in prices for these commodities, our Restaurant Group companies' results of operations may be negatively affected. In addition, the Restaurant Group companies' restaurants are dependent upon frequent deliveries of perishable food products that meet certain specifications. Shortages or interruptions in the supply of perishable food products caused by unanticipated demand, problems in production or distribution, disease or food-borne illnesses, inclement weather or other conditions could adversely affect the availability, quality, and cost of ingredients, which would likely lower revenues, damage the Restaurant Group companies' reputation or otherwise harm their business.

        The Restaurant Group companies are also subject to the general risks of inflation. The performance of our Restaurant Group companies' business is also adversely affected by increases in the price of utilities, such as natural gas, whether as a result of inflation, shortages or interruptions in supply, or otherwise. The Restaurant Group companies' business will also incur significant costs for insurance, labor, marketing, taxes, real estate, borrowing and litigation, all of which could increase due to inflation, changes in laws and regulations, competition or other events beyond the Restaurant Group companies' control.

Negative customer experiences or negative publicity surrounding our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants or other restaurants could adversely affect sales in one or more of our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants and make our concepts less valuable, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Because we believe our Restaurant Group companies' success depends significantly on their ability to provide exceptional food quality, outstanding service and an excellent overall dining experience, adverse publicity, whether or not accurate, relating to food quality, public health concerns, illness, safety, injury or government or industry findings concerning our Restaurant Group companies'

19


Table of Contents

restaurants, restaurants operated by other foodservice providers or others across the food industry supply chain could affect our Restaurant Group companies more than it would other restaurants that compete primarily on price or other factors. If customers perceive or experience a reduction in the food quality, service or ambiance at our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants or in any way believe our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants have failed to deliver a consistently positive experience, the value and popularity of one or more of our Restaurant Group companies' concepts could suffer. Further, because our restaurant businesses rely heavily on "word-of-mouth," as opposed to more conventional mediums of advertisement, to establish concept recognition, our restaurant businesses may be more adversely affected by negative customer experiences than other dining establishments, including those of our restaurant businesses' competitors.

Our restaurant businesses could suffer due to reduced demand for our restaurant businesses' brands or specific menu offerings if our restaurant businesses are the subject of negative publicity or litigation regarding allegations of food-related contaminations or illnesses, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Food safety is a top priority, and our Restaurant Group companies dedicate substantial resources to ensuring that their customers enjoy safe, quality food products. Food-related contaminations and illnesses may be caused by a variety of food-borne pathogens, such as e-coli or salmonella, which are frequently carried on unwashed fruits and vegetables, from a variety of illnesses transmitted by restaurant workers, such as hepatitis A, which may not be diagnosed prior to being infectious, and from contamination of food by foreign substances. Contamination and food borne illness incidents could also be caused at the point of source or by food suppliers and distributors. As a result, we cannot control all of the potential sources of contamination or illness that can be contained in or transmitted from our Restaurant Group companies' food. Regardless of the source or cause, any report of food-borne illnesses or other food safety issues including food tampering or contamination, at one of our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants could adversely affect the reputation of our Restaurant Group companies' brands and have a negative impact on their sales. Even instances of food-borne illness, food tampering or food contamination occurring solely at restaurants of our Restaurant Group companies' competitors or at one of our Restaurant Group companies' suppliers could result in negative publicity about the food service industry generally and adversely impact our Restaurant Group companies' sales.

        If any person becomes injured or ill, or alleges becoming injured or ill, as a result of eating our Restaurant Group companies' food, our Restaurant Group companies may temporarily close some restaurants or their bakery facilities, which would decrease their revenues, and our restaurant businesses may be liable for damages or be subject to governmental regulatory action, either of which could have long-lasting, negative effects on our restaurant businesses' reputation, financial condition and results of operations, regardless of whether the allegations are valid or whether our restaurant businesses are found liable. The occurrence of food-borne illnesses or food safety issues could also adversely affect the price and availability of affected ingredients, resulting in higher costs and lower margins.

Our Restaurant Group companies' failure to comply with government regulation, and the costs of compliance or non-compliance, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The Restaurant Group companies are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations affecting their business. Each of their restaurants and their bakery division are subject to licensing and regulation by a number of federal, state and local governmental authorities, which may include, among others, alcoholic beverage control, health and safety, nutritional menu labeling, health care, environmental and fire agencies. Difficulty in obtaining or failure to obtain the required licenses,

20


Table of Contents

including liquor or other licenses, permits or approval could delay or prevent the development of a new restaurant in a particular area. Additionally, difficulties or inabilities to retain or renew licenses, or increased compliance costs due to changed regulations, could adversely affect operations at existing restaurants.

        While only approximately 8.7% of the Restaurant Group companies' consolidated restaurant sales in 2016 were attributable to the sale of alcoholic beverages, approximately 18.6% of the restaurant sales at Ninety Nine were attributable to the sale of alcoholic beverages in 2016. Alcoholic beverage control regulations require each restaurant to apply to a state authority and, in certain locations, county or municipal authorities for a license or permit to sell alcoholic beverages on the premises and to provide service for extended hours and on Sundays. Typically, licenses must be renewed annually and may be revoked or suspended for cause at any time. Alcoholic beverage control regulations relate to numerous aspects of daily operations of the Restaurant Group companies' restaurants, including minimum ages of patrons and employees, hours of operation, advertising, training, wholesale purchasing, inventory control and the handling, storage and dispensation of alcoholic beverages. The failure of a restaurant to obtain or retain liquor or food service licenses would adversely affect the restaurant's operations. Additionally, our restaurant businesses will be subject in certain states to "dram shop" statutes, which generally provide a person injured by an intoxicated person the right to recover damages from an establishment that wrongfully served alcoholic beverages to the intoxicated person.

        Our restaurant businesses' operations are also subject to federal and state labor laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, governing such matters as minimum wages, overtime, tip credits and worker conditions. The Restaurant Group companies' employees who receive tips as part of their compensation, such as servers, are generally paid at a minimum wage rate, after giving effect to applicable tip credits. The Restaurant Group companies rely on their employees to accurately disclose the full amount of their tip income, and they base their Federal Insurance Contributions Act tax reporting on the disclosures provided to them by such tipped employees. Significant numbers of these personnel are paid at rates related to the applicable minimum wage and thus, further increases in the federal or state minimum wage or other changes in these laws could increase our Restaurant Group companies' labor costs. Their ability to respond to minimum wage increases by increasing menu prices will depend on the responses of their competitors and customers.

        In 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (the PPACA) was signed into law in the U.S. to require healthcare coverage for many uninsured individuals and expand coverage to those already insured. Starting in 2015, the PPACA required the Restaurant Group companies to offer healthcare benefits to all full-time employees (including full-time hourly employees) that meet certain minimum requirements of coverage and affordability, or face penalties. Starting in 2014, the PPACA also required most individuals to obtain coverage or face individual penalties. The amount of the individual penalty will increase significantly in future years. It is also possible that by making changes or failing to make changes in the healthcare plans offered by our Restaurant Group companies they will become less competitive in the market for labor. Finally, continued compliance with the requirements of the PPACA and rising costs of healthcare may impose additional administrative costs. The costs and other effects of these healthcare requirements are not anticipated to have a significant effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations in fiscal year 2017 but they may significantly increase our Restaurant Group companies' healthcare coverage costs in future periods and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Additionally, the PPACA, in part, amended the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, to require chain restaurants with 20 or more locations in the U.S. to comply with federal nutritional disclosure requirements. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published final regulations to implement the nutritional menu labeling provisions, it has extended the compliance date until May 7, 2018, for those covered by the rule. We do not expect our restaurant businesses to incur any material costs from compliance with this provision, but cannot anticipate any changes in customer behavior

21


Table of Contents

resulting from the implementation of this portion of the law, which could have an adverse effect on our Restaurant Group companies' sales and results of operations. A number of states, counties and cities have also enacted menu labeling laws requiring multi-unit restaurant operators to disclose certain nutritional information to customers, or have enacted legislation restricting the use of certain types of ingredients in restaurants. Many of these requirements are inconsistent or are interpreted differently from one jurisdiction to another.

        There is also a potential for increased regulation of certain food establishments in the U.S., where compliance with Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) management systems may now be required. HACCP refers to a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of potential hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product. Many states have required restaurants to develop and implement HACCP programs and the U.S. government continues to expand the sectors of the food industry that must adopt and implement HACCP programs. For example, the Food Safety Modernization Act, signed into law in January 2011, granted the FDA new authority regarding the safety of the entire food system, including through increased inspections and mandatory food recalls. We anticipate that the new requirements may impact the restaurant industry. Additionally, our Restaurant Group companies' suppliers may initiate or otherwise be subject to food recalls that may impact the availability of certain products, result in adverse publicity or require the Restaurant Group companies' to take actions that could be costly for them or otherwise harm their business.

        In addition, in order to develop and construct restaurants, the Restaurant Group companies must comply with applicable zoning, land use and environmental regulations. Such regulations have not had a material effect on its operations to date, but more stringent and varied requirements of local governmental bodies could delay or prevent construction and increase development costs for new restaurants. The Restaurant Group companies are also subject to federal and state laws which prohibit discrimination and other accessibility standards as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), which generally, among other things, prohibits discrimination in accommodation or employment based on disability. The ADA became effective as to public accommodations and employment in 1992. Pursuant to the ADA, our restaurant businesses may in the future have to modify restaurants, by adding access ramps or redesigning certain architectural fixtures for example, to provide service to or make reasonable accommodations for disabled persons. While these expenses could be material, the Restaurant Group companies' current expectation is that any such actions will not require substantial capital expenditures.

        The Restaurant Group companies are subject to a variety of federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the use, storage, discharge, emission and disposal of hazardous materials. There also has been increasing focus by the U.S. on other environmental matters, such as climate change, the reduction of greenhouse gases and water consumption. This increased focus may lead to new initiatives directed at regulating an as yet unspecified array of environmental matters, such as the emission of greenhouse gases, and "cap and trade" initiatives could effectively impose a tax on carbon emissions. Legislative, regulatory or other efforts to combat climate change or other environmental concerns could result in future increases in the cost of raw materials, commodities, taxes, transportation and utilities, which could decrease our Restaurant Group companies' operating profits and necessitate future investments in facilities and equipment.

        The Restaurant Group companies are subject to laws and regulations relating to information security, privacy, cashless payments, gift cards and consumer credit, protection and fraud, and any failure or perceived or alleged failure to comply with these laws and regulations could harm their reputation or lead to litigation, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

22


Table of Contents

        The impact of current laws and regulations, the effect of future changes in laws or regulations that impose additional requirements and the consequences of litigation relating to current or future laws and regulations, or an insufficient or ineffective response to significant regulatory or public policy issues, could increase our Restaurant Group companies' cost structure or lessen their operational efficiencies and talent availability, and therefore have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations. Failure to comply with the laws and regulatory requirements of federal, state and local authorities could result in, among other things, revocation of required licenses, administrative enforcement actions, fines and civil and criminal liability. Compliance with these laws and regulations can be costly and can increase the Restaurant Group companies' exposure to litigation or governmental investigations or proceedings.

Restaurant companies, including our restaurant companies, are the target of claims and lawsuits from time to time in the ordinary course of business. Proceedings of this nature, if successful, could result in our payment of substantial costs and damages, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Our Restaurant Group companies and other restaurant companies have been subject to claims and lawsuits alleging various matters from time to time in the ordinary course of business, including those that follow. Claims and lawsuits may include class action lawsuits, alleging violations of federal and state laws regarding workplace and employment matters, discrimination and similar matters. A number of these lawsuits have resulted in the payment of substantial damages by the defendants. Similar lawsuits have been instituted from time to time alleging violations of various federal and state wage and hour laws regarding, among other things, employee meal deductions, the sharing of tips amongst certain employees, overtime eligibility of assistant managers and failure to pay for all hours worked. Although our restaurant businesses will maintain what we believe to be adequate levels of insurance, insurance may not be available at all or in sufficient amounts to cover any liabilities with respect to these matters. Accordingly, if our restaurant businesses are required to pay substantial damages and expenses as a result of these types or other lawsuits, such payments or expenses could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

        Occasionally, our Restaurant Group companies' customers may file complaints or lawsuits against the Restaurant Group companies alleging that they are responsible for some illness or injury the customers suffered at or after a visit to one of the Restaurant Group companies' restaurants, including actions seeking damages resulting from food-borne illness and relating to notices with respect to chemicals contained in food products required under state law. Our Restaurant Group companies may also be subject to a variety of other claims from third parties arising in the ordinary course of their business, including personal injury claims, contract claims and claims alleging violations of federal and state laws. In addition, most of our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants are subject to state "dram shop" or similar laws which generally allow a person to sue our restaurant businesses if that person was injured by a legally intoxicated person who was wrongfully served alcoholic beverages at one of our Restaurant Group companies' restaurants. The restaurant industry has also been subject to a growing number of claims that the menus and actions of restaurant chains have led to the obesity of certain of their customers. In addition, the Restaurant Group companies may also be subject to lawsuits from their employees or others alleging violations of federal and state laws regarding workplace and employment matters, discrimination and similar matters. A number of these lawsuits in the restaurant industry have resulted in the payment of substantial damages by the defendants.

        Additionally, certain of the Restaurant Group companies' tax returns and employment practices are subject to audits by the IRS and various state tax authorities. Such audits could result in disputes regarding tax matters that could lead to litigation that would be costly to defend or could result in the payment of additional taxes, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

23


Table of Contents

        Regardless of whether any claims against the Restaurant Group companies are valid or whether they are liable, claims may be expensive to defend and may divert resources away from their operations. In addition, such claims may generate negative publicity, which could reduce customer traffic and sales. Although our restaurant businesses will maintain what they believe to be adequate levels of insurance, insurance may not be available at all or in sufficient amounts to cover any liabilities with respect to these or other matters. Defense costs, even for unfounded claims, or a judgment or other liability in excess of our restaurant businesses' insurance coverage for any claims or any adverse publicity resulting from claims could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

The Restaurant Group companies rely heavily on information technology and any material failure, interruption, or security breach in their systems could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The Restaurant Group companies rely heavily on information technology systems across their operations and corporate functions, including for order and delivery from suppliers and distributors, point-of-sale processing in their restaurants, management of their supply chains, payment of obligations, collection of cash, bakery production, data warehousing to support analytics, finance or accounting systems, labor optimization tools, gift cards, online business and various other processes and transactions, including the storage of employee and customer information. The Restaurant Group companies' ability to effectively manage their business and coordinate the production, distribution and sale of their products will depend significantly on the reliability and capacity of these systems. In August 2015, the Restaurant Group companies upgraded their information systems using FIS commercial services. However, the failure of these systems to operate effectively, maintenance problems or problems with transitioning to upgraded or replacement systems could cause delays in product sales and reduced efficiency of our restaurant businesses' operations, and significant capital investments could be required to remediate the problem.

        The regulatory environment surrounding information security and privacy is increasingly demanding, with the frequent imposition of new and constantly changing requirements. Compliance with these requirements may result in cost increases due to necessary systems changes and the development of new administrative processes. In addition, customers and employees have a high expectation that our restaurant businesses will adequately protect their personal information. The majority of our restaurant businesses' restaurant sales are by credit or debit cards. We and other restaurants and retailers have experienced security breaches in which credit and debit card information of their customers has been stolen. For example, a cyber-security investigation at O'Charley's identified signs of unauthorized access to the payment card network of O'Charley's restaurants from March 18, 2016 to April 8, 2016, during which period credit cards used at all O'Charley's restaurants (other than three franchised locations) may have been affected. In connection with this matter, ABRH has reimbursed Fifth Third Bank for fines arising under the MasterCard Security Rules and Procedures (Merchant Edition) in the amount of $0.6 million and expects to receive an assessment from Visa relating to the data breach in June 2017. Any additional amounts incurred by O'Charley's in connection with this matter will depend on a variety of factors, including the specific facts and circumstances of the incident (e.g., how many cards were actually affected and then used to make unauthorized purchases) and the exercise of discretion by each card network. O'Charley's could also face lawsuits by individual cardholders for unauthorized charges if the individuals are not fully compensated by the card brands, although O'Charley's has received no notice of any such lawsuits to date. In addition, any breach in customer payment information could result in investigations by the U.S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force (ECTF) and increased cost in our restaurant businesses' efforts to cooperate with the ECTF.

Table of Contents

        The Restaurant Group companies also maintain certain personal information regarding their employees. In addition to government investigations, the Restaurant Group companies may in the future become subject to lawsuits or other proceedings for purportedly fraudulent transactions arising out of the actual or alleged theft of their customers' credit or debit card information or if customer or employee information is obtained by unauthorized persons or used inappropriately. If the Restaurant Group companies fail to comply with these laws and regulations or experience a significant breach of customer, employee or company data, their reputation could be damaged and they could experience lost sales, fines or lawsuits. Additionally, if a person is able to circumvent the security measures intended to protect our Restaurant Group companies' employee or customer private data, he or she could destroy or steal valuable information and disrupt our restaurant businesses' operations. The Restaurant Group companies may also be required to incur additional costs to modify or enhance their systems in order to prevent or remediate any such attacks.

The Restaurant Group's current and future indebtedness could have a material adverse effect on its liquidity and our business, financial condition and results of operation.

        In August 2014, ABRH entered into a senior secured credit facility (the ABRH Credit Facility) with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as Joint Lead Arrangers, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, Swingline Lender and Issuing Lender, Bank of America, N.A., as Syndication Agent and the lenders from time to time party thereto. The ABRH Credit Facility provides for (i) a revolving credit facility with aggregate commitments in the amount of $100.0 million (the ABRH Revolver) and (ii) a term loan in the initial principal amount of $110.0 million (the ABRH Term Loan), plus an accordion feature granting ABRH the ability to increase the size of the facilities on terms and conditions mutually acceptable to the parties. As of June 30, 2017, the ABRH Term Loan had an aggregate outstanding principal amount of $89.7 million, excluding unamortized debt issuance costs, and there was $17.5 million drawn under the ABRH Revolver.

        The ABRH Credit Facility contains, among other things, restrictive covenants that limit ABRH and its subsidiaries' ability to finance future operations or capital needs or to engage in other business activities. The ABRH Credit Facility restricts, among other things, ABRH's ability and the ability of its subsidiaries to incur additional indebtedness or issue guarantees, create liens on their respective assets, make distributions on or redeem equity interests, make investments, transfer or sell properties or other assets, and engage in mergers, consolidations or acquisitions, in each case, subject to certain customary exceptions. In addition, the ABRH Credit Facility will require ABRH to meet specified financial ratios and tests. For additional information regarding ABRH's indebtedness and the covenants related thereto, see Note K of the Notes to Combined Financial Statements.

        On February 24, 2017, the ABRH Credit Facility was amended to reduce the ABRH Revolver capacity from $100.0 million to $60.0 million, reduce the letters of credit sublimit from $40.0 million to $20.0 million and remove the provision which allowed ABRH to enter into up to $250.0 million of incremental loans. The amendment also modifies the existing financial covenants to be less restrictive.

        ABRH's indebtedness may increase from time to time in the future for various reasons, including fluctuations in operating results, capital expenditures and potential acquisitions. Any indebtedness incurred by ABRH and restrictive covenants contained in the agreements related thereto could:

Table of Contents

        If any of these events were to occur, or if ABRH is unable to comply with its obligations under the ABRH Credit Facility, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations or cause a significant decrease in ABRH's liquidity and impair its ability to pay amounts due on its indebtedness.

Factors Relating to Ceridian

General economic factors could have a material adverse effect on Ceridian's financial performance and on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        General economic conditions and trade, monetary and fiscal policies impact Ceridian's business and the industries it serves. The Ceridian business has been negatively affected in the past by weak global and U.S. and Canadian economic environments which have included high unemployment rates, low interest rates and soft retail sales. Although elements of the challenging economic environment have become more favorable or stabilized in at least the U.S. and Canada, a prolonged slowdown in the economy or other economic conditions affecting overall unemployment levels, business and consumer spending and retail strength may adversely affect Ceridian's operating results by, among other things, decreasing its revenue through low customer employee counts or amounts of employee wage and bonus payments, diminished or slowing customer orders and timing of product installations and reduced spending on outsourcing or pressure to renegotiate existing contacts. Additionally, lower interest rates and risk associated with certain investment options have caused a decrease in Ceridian's revenue from interest in customer funds held in trust. Current global economic conditions and uncertainties concerning the potential for failures or realignments of financial institutions and the related impact on available credit may also adversely affect Ceridian or its business partners and customers by reducing access to capital or credit, increasing cost of debt and limiting ability to manage interest rate risk, and increasing the risk of bankruptcy of parties with which Ceridian does business, including credit or debt related counterparties. Such economic conditions and uncertainties may also adversely affect Ceridian and its business partners and customers through increased investment related risks by decreasing liquidity and/or increasing investment losses. In addition, Ceridian is dependent upon various large banks to execute payment transactions as part of its client payroll and tax services.

Failure to comply with anti-corruption laws and regulations, anti-money laundering laws and regulations, economic and trade sanctions and similar laws could have a material adverse effect on Ceridian's reputation, and on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Regulators worldwide are exercising heightened scrutiny with respect to anti-corruption, anti-money laundering laws and regulations and economic and trade sanctions. Such heightened scrutiny has resulted in more aggressive enforcement of such laws and more burdensome regulations, which could adversely impact Ceridian's business. We will operate Ceridian around the world, including in some economies where companies and government officials may be more likely to engage in business practices that are prohibited by domestic and foreign laws and regulations, including the U.S. Foreign

26


Table of Contents

Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the U.K. Bribery Act. Such laws generally prohibit improper payments or offers of payments to foreign government officials and leaders of political parties, and in some cases, to other persons, for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Ceridian will also be subject to economic and trade sanctions programs, including those administered by the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, which prohibit or restrict transactions or dealings with specified countries, their governments, and in certain circumstances, their nationals, and with individuals and entities that are specially designated, including narcotics traffickers and terrorists or terrorist organizations, among others.

        Ceridian has implemented policies and procedures to monitor and address compliance with applicable anti-corruption laws and regulations and economic and trade sanctions, and annually reviews and evaluates the suitability of its policies; however, there can be no assurance that none of Ceridian's employees, consultants or agents will take actions in violation of these policies, for which Ceridian may be ultimately responsible, or that Ceridian's policies and procedures will be adequate or will be determined to be adequate by regulators. Any violations of applicable anti-corruption laws and regulations or economic and trade sanctions could limit certain of Ceridian's business activities until they are satisfactorily remediated and could result in civil and criminal penalties, including fines that could damage its reputation and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. Further, bank regulators are imposing additional and stricter requirements on banks to ensure they are meeting their obligations under The Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, as amended by the USA PATRIOT Act of 2000, and banks are, therefore, placing increased scrutiny on vendors and partners. As a result, Ceridian's banking partners may limit the scope of services they provide to Ceridian or may impose additional requirements on Ceridian. These regulatory restrictions on banks and changes to banks' internal risk-based policies and procedures may place an additional burden on Ceridian operations, or may require Ceridian to change the manner in which it conducts some aspects of its business, which may decrease its revenues and earnings and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Ceridian's indebtedness could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        In November 2014, Ceridian HCM Holding Inc. entered in a senior secured credit facility (the Ceridian Credit Facility) with Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, as administrative agent and collateral agent and Deutsche Bank AG Canada Branch, as Canadian sub-agent, and the lenders from time to time party thereto. The Ceridian Credit Facility provides for (i) a revolving credit facility with aggregate commitments in the amount of $130.0 million (the Ceridian Revolver) consisting of an $88.4 million sub-facility for U.S. Dollar revolving loans and a $41.6 million sub-facility for multicurrency revolving loans and (ii) a term loan in the initial principal amount of $702.0 million (the Ceridian Term Loan), plus an accordion feature granting Ceridian the ability to increase the size of the facilities on the terms specified in the Ceridian Credit Facility. In October 2013, Ceridian issued senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the Ceridian Notes, and together with the Ceridian Credit Facility, the Ceridian Debt Facilities) pursuant to that certain Indenture with Wells Fargo Bank National Association in an original principal amount of $475.0 million. As of December 31, 2016, the Ceridian Revolver had no outstanding principal amount, the Ceridian Term Loan had an aggregate outstanding principal amount of $683.2 million and the Ceridian Notes had an aggregate outstanding principal amount of $475.0 million.

        The Ceridian Debt Facilities contain, among other things, restrictive covenants that limit Ceridian and its subsidiaries' ability to finance future operations or capital needs or to engage in other business activities. The Ceridian Debt Facilities restrict, among other things, Ceridian's ability and the ability of its subsidiaries to incur additional indebtedness or issue guarantees, create liens on their respective assets, make distributions on or redeem equity interests, make investments, transfer or sell properties

or other assets, and engage in mergers, consolidations or other fundamental change transactions, engage in transactions with affiliates and/or enter into burdensome agreements, in each case, subject to certain customary exceptions. In addition, if the usage of the Ceridian Revolver exceeds a specified threshold, the Ceridian Credit Facility will require Ceridian to meet a specified financial ratio.

        The Ceridian indebtedness, including the related restrictive covenants that impose operating and financial restrictions on Ceridian, and its other financial obligations could have important consequences to us, such as:

        If Ceridian fails to make any required payment under its indebtedness or to comply with any of the financial and operating covenants related thereto, it will be in default. Ceridian's lenders could then vote to accelerate the maturity of the indebtedness and, in the case of the Ceridian Credit Facility, foreclose upon Ceridian and its subsidiaries' assets securing such indebtedness. Other creditors might then accelerate other indebtedness. If any of Ceridian's creditors accelerate the maturity of their indebtedness, Ceridian may not have sufficient assets to satisfy its obligations under its indebtedness.

A breach of Ceridian's security, loss of customer data or system disruption could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Ceridian is dependent on its respective payroll, transaction, financial, accounting and other data processing systems. Ceridian relies on these systems to process, on a daily basis, a large number of complicated transactions. Any security breach in these business processes and/or systems has the potential to impact Ceridian's customer information and its financial reporting capabilities which could result in the potential loss of business and its ability to accurately report financial results. If any of these systems fail to operate properly or become disabled even for a brief period of time, Ceridian could potentially lose control of customer data and Ceridian could suffer financial loss, a disruption of its businesses, liability to clients, regulatory intervention or damage to its reputation.

        In addition, any issue of data privacy as it relates to unauthorized access to or loss of customer and/or employee information could result in the potential loss of business, damage to Ceridian's market reputation, litigation and regulatory investigation and penalties. Ceridian's continued investment in the security of its IT systems, continued efforts to improve the controls within its IT systems, business processes improvements, and the enhancements to its culture of information security may not

28


Table of Contents

successfully prevent attempts to breach its security or unauthorized access to confidential, sensitive or proprietary information.

        In addition, in the event of a catastrophic occurrence, either natural or man-made, Ceridian's ability to protect its infrastructure, including client data, and maintain ongoing operations could be significantly impaired. Ceridian's business continuity and disaster recovery plans and strategies may not be successful in mitigating the effects of a catastrophic occurrence. If Ceridian's security is breached, confidential information is accessed or it experiences a catastrophic occurrence, such an occurrence could have a material adverse effect on our business and operating results.

Litigation and governmental inquiries, investigations and proceedings related to Ceridian could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Ceridian may be adversely affected by judgments, settlements, unanticipated costs or other effects of legal and administrative proceedings now pending or that may be instituted in the future, or from investigations by regulatory bodies or administrative agencies. From time to time in the ordinary course of business, Ceridian has had inquiries from regulatory bodies and administrative agencies relating to the operation of its business. It is Ceridian's practice to cooperate with such inquiries. Such inquiries may result in various audits, reviews and investigations. An adverse outcome of any investigation by, or other inquiries from, such bodies or agencies could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations and result in the institution of administrative or civil proceedings, sanctions and the payment of fines and penalties, changes in personnel, and increased review and scrutiny of Ceridian by its customers, regulatory authorities, the media and others. Ceridian is also subject to claims and a number of judicial and administrative proceedings considered normal in the course of its current and past operations, including employment-related disputes, contract disputes, intellectual property disputes, government audits and proceedings, customer disputes and tort claims. Responding to such claims may be difficult and expensive, and Ceridian may not prevail. In some proceedings, the claimant seeks damages as well as other relief, which, if granted, would require expenditures on Ceridian's part. There can be no certainty that Ceridian may not ultimately incur charges in excess of presently or established future financial accruals or insurance coverage, or that Ceridian would prevail. Whether or not Ceridian prevails, such litigation may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

The failure of Ceridian's business to comply with applicable laws could result in substantial taxes, penalties and liabilities that could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Ceridian is subject to various laws and regulations, and its failure to comply with such laws and regulations could adversely affect our business. For example, Ceridian's customers remit employer and employee tax funds to its businesses. Ceridian processes the data received from its customers and remits the funds along with a tax return to the appropriate taxing authorities when due. Under various service agreements with its customers, Ceridian assumes financial responsibility for the payment of the taxes, penalties and liabilities assessed against its customers arising out of its failure to fulfill its obligations under its agreements with these customers, unless these taxes, penalties or liabilities are attributable to the customer's failure to comply with the terms of the agreement the customer has with Ceridian. These taxes, penalties and liabilities could, in some cases, be substantial and could adversely affect Ceridian's business and operating results. Additionally, Ceridian's failure to fulfill its obligations under its customer agreements could adversely affect Ceridian's reputation, its relationship with its customers and its ability to gain new customers. In addition, mistakes may occur in connection with this service. Ceridian and its customers may be subject to penalties imposed by tax authorities for late filings or underpayment of taxes.

Ceridian is subject to risks related to its international operations, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Approximately 35% of Ceridian's revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 was obtained from its international operations. Ceridian's Canada operations provide certain human capital management (HCM) services for Ceridian's Canadian customers. Ceridian is continuing to expand its international HCM business into other countries by (i) engaging a partner within a country to provide it with managed payroll administration and processing services for that country and (ii) expanding the features and functionality of its Dayforce product for use in such other countries. As such, Ceridian's international operations are subject to risks that could adversely affect those operations or its business as a whole, including costs of localizing products and services for foreign customers; difficulties in managing and staffing international operations; difficulties and increased expenses introducing corporate policies and controls in its international operations; difficulties with or inability to engage global partners; reduced or varied protection of intellectual property and other legal rights in some countries; longer sales and payment cycles; the burdens of complying with a wide variety of foreign laws; compliance with applicable anti-bribery laws, including the FCPA; exposure to legal jurisdictions that may not recognize or interpret customer contracts appropriately; potentially adverse tax consequences, including the complexities of foreign value added tax systems, restrictions on the repatriation of earnings and changes in tax rates; exposure to local economic and political conditions; and changes in currency exchange rates.

        In addition, we anticipate that Ceridian's customers and potential customers may increasingly require and demand that a single vendor provide HCM solutions and services for their employees in a number of countries. If Ceridian is unable to provide the required services on a multinational basis, there may be a negative impact on its new orders and customer retention, which would negatively impact revenue and earnings. Although Ceridian has a multinational strategy, additional investment and efforts may be necessary to implement such strategy.

Factors Relating to Splitco's Corporate and Other Businesses

Competition and technology may erode the Corporate and Other business franchises and result in lower earnings, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Each of the Corporate and Other businesses face intense competitive pressures within markets in which they operate. While we will manage our businesses with the objective of achieving long-term sustainable growth by developing and strengthening competitive advantages, many factors, including market and technology changes, may erode or prevent the strengthening of competitive advantages. Accordingly, future operating results will depend to some degree on whether our Corporate and Other businesses are successful in protecting or enhancing their competitive advantages. If our Corporate and Other businesses are unsuccessful in these efforts, our periodic operating results in the future may decline from current levels.

The Corporate and Other businesses, from time to time in the ordinary course of business, are involved in legal proceedings and may experience unfavorable outcomes, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The Corporate and Other businesses, from time to time in the ordinary course of business, are involved in pending and threatened litigation matters, some of which include claims for punitive or exemplary damages. These companies are also subject to compliance with extensive government laws and regulations related to employment practices and policies. The Corporate and Other businesses may not be able to successfully resolve these types of conflicts to their satisfaction, and these matters may involve claims for substantial amounts of money or for other relief that might necessitate changes to

30


Table of Contents

their business or operations. The defense of these actions may be both time consuming and expensive and their outcomes cannot be predicted with certainty. Determining reserves for pending litigation is a complex, fact-intensive process that requires significant legal judgment. It is possible that unfavorable outcomes in one or more such proceedings could result in substantial payments that could have a material adverse effect on the Corporate and Other businesses' cash flows in a particular period or on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Failure to comply with, or changes in, laws or regulations applicable to the Corporate and Other businesses could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The Corporate and Other businesses will be subject to certain laws, such as certain environmental laws, takeover laws, anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, escheat or abandoned property laws, and antitrust laws, that may impose requirements on us and them as an affiliated group. As a result, we could become jointly and severally liable for all or part of fines imposed on our Corporate and Other businesses or be fined directly for violations committed by these businesses, and such fines imposed directly on us could be greater than those imposed on such businesses. Compliance with these laws or contracts could also require us to commit significant resources and capital towards information gathering and monitoring thereby increasing our operating costs.

        Similarly, the Corporate and Other businesses may be subject to contractual obligations which may impose obligations or restrictions on their affiliates. The interpretation of such contractual provisions will depend on local laws. Given that we do not control all of the Corporate and Other businesses and that they generally operate independently of each other, there is a risk that we could contravene one or more of such laws, regulations and contractual arrangements due to limited access and opportunities to monitor compliance. In addition, compliance with these laws or contracts could require us to commit significant resources and capital towards information gathering and monitoring thereby increasing our operating costs.

We need qualified personnel to manage and operate our Corporate and Other businesses, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        In our decentralized business model, we need qualified and competent management to direct day-to-day business activities of our Corporate and Other businesses. Our Corporate and Other businesses also need qualified and competent personnel in executing their business plans and serving their customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. Changes in demographics, training requirements and the unavailability of qualified personnel could negatively impact our Corporate and Other businesses' ability to meet demands of customers to supply goods and services. Recruiting and retaining qualified personnel is important to all of our Corporate and Other businesses' operations. Although our Corporate and Other businesses have adequate personnel for the current business environment, unpredictable increases in demand for goods and services may exacerbate the risk of not having sufficient numbers of trained personnel, which could have a negative impact on our operating results, financial condition and liquidity.

Factors Relating to Splitco's Investments

Our management may seek growth through acquisitions in lines of business that will not necessarily be limited to our current areas of focus or geographic areas. This expansion of our business subjects us to associated risks, such as the diversion of management's attention and lack of experience in operating such businesses, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        We may make acquisitions in lines of business that are not directly tied to or synergistic with our current portfolio companies. Accordingly, we may in the future acquire businesses in industries or geographic areas with which management is less familiar than we are with our current businesses.

31


Table of Contents

        The acquisition and integration of any business we may acquire involves a number of risks and may result in unforeseen operating difficulties and expenditures in assimilating or integrating the businesses, technologies, products, personnel or operations of the acquired business. Furthermore, acquisitions may:

        To complete future acquisitions, we may determine that it is necessary to use a substantial amount of our cash or engage in equity or debt financing. If we raise additional funds through further issuances of equity or convertible debt securities, our existing stockholders could suffer significant dilution, and any new equity securities we issue could have rights, preferences and privileges senior to those of holders of our common stock. Any debt financing obtained by us in the future could involve restrictive covenants relating to our capital-raising activities and other financial and operational matters that make it more difficult for us to obtain additional capital in the future and to pursue other business opportunities, including potential acquisitions. In addition, we may not be able to obtain additional financing on terms favorable to us, if at all, which could limit our ability to engage in acquisitions. Moreover, we can make no assurances that the anticipated benefits of any acquisition, such as operating improvements or anticipated cost savings, would be realized or that we would not be exposed to unexpected liabilities in connection with any acquisition.

        Further, an acquisition may negatively affect our operating results because it may require us to incur charges and substantial debt or other liabilities, may cause adverse tax consequences, substantial depreciation and amortization of deferred compensation charges, may require the amortization, write-down or impairment of amounts related to deferred compensation, goodwill and other intangible assets, may include substantial contingent consideration payments or other compensation that reduce our earnings during the quarter in which incurred, or may not generate sufficient financial return to offset acquisition costs.

We may often pursue investment opportunities that involve business, regulatory, legal or other complexities, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        As an element of our investment style, we may pursue unusually complex investment opportunities. This could often take the form of substantial business, regulatory or legal complexity. Our tolerance for complexity may present risks, as such transactions can be more difficult, expensive and time-consuming to finance and execute; it may be more difficult to manage or realize value from the assets acquired in such transactions; and such transactions may sometimes entail a higher level of regulatory scrutiny or a greater risk of contingent liabilities. Any of these risks could harm our performance.

The loss of key personnel could impair our operating abilities and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Our success will substantially depend on our ability to attract and retain key members of our senior management team and officers. If we lose one or more of these key employees, our operating results and in turn the value of our common stock could be materially adversely affected. Although we

32


Table of Contents

will have employment agreements with many of our officers, there can be no assurance that the entire term of the employment agreement will be served or that the employment agreement will be renewed upon expiration.

Deterioration of general economic conditions may significantly reduce our operating earnings and impair our ability to access capital markets at a reasonable cost, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        The portfolio companies are subject to normal economic cycles affecting the economy in general or the industries in which they operate. To the extent that the economy deteriorates for a prolonged period of time, one or more of our significant operations could be materially harmed.

        Following the Split-Off, we will make investments in certain equity securities and preferred stock in order to take advantage of perceived value and for strategic purposes. In the past, economic and credit market conditions have adversely affected the ability of some issuers of investment securities to repay their obligations and have affected the values of investment securities. If the carrying value of our investments exceeds the fair value, and the decline in fair value is deemed to be other-than-temporary, we will be required to write down the value of our investments, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

        Following the Split-Off, although we will share control of its management, we will own a minority economic interest in Ceridian, a leading provider of global human capital management. If the fair value of this company were to decline below book value, we would be required to write down the value of our investment, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations. If this company were to experience significant negative volatility in its results of operations, it would have a material adverse effect on our own results of operations due to our inclusion of our portion of its earnings in our results of operations.

The due diligence process that we undertake in connection with new acquisitions may not reveal all facts that may be relevant in connection with an investment.

        Before making acquisitions, we will conduct due diligence that we deem reasonable and appropriate based on the facts and circumstances applicable to each investment. When conducting due diligence, we may be required to evaluate important and complex business, financial, tax, accounting, environmental and legal issues. Outside consultants, legal advisers, accountants and investment banks may be involved in the due diligence process in varying degrees depending on the type of investment. Nevertheless, when conducting due diligence and making an assessment regarding an acquisition, we will rely on the resources available to us, including information provided by the target of the investment and, in some circumstances, third party investigations. The due diligence investigation that we will carry out with respect to any opportunity may not reveal or highlight all relevant facts (including fraud) that may be necessary or helpful in evaluating such opportunity. Moreover, such an investigation will not necessarily result in the investment being successful.

Factors Relating to the Split-Off and the Proposals

The Split-Off could result in a significant tax liability to FNF and to holders of FNFV common stock and under certain circumstances we may have a significant indemnity obligation to FNF, which is not limited in amount or subject to any cap, if the Split-Off is treated as a taxable transaction.

        FNF has structured the Split-Off to be treated as a tax-free transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In addition, FNF has received a private letter ruling from the IRS regarding an issue relating to the tax-free treatment of the Split-Off, and the Split-Off is conditioned upon the receipt by FNF of the opinion of Deloitte Tax to the effect that the Split-Off should qualify as a tax-free transaction under Section 368(a), Section 355, and related provisions of the Code and a distribution to which

33


Table of Contents

Sections 355 and 361 of the Code applies. Accordingly, FNF and holders of FNFV common stock generally should recognize no gain or loss with respect to the Split-Off. The ruling is, and the opinion will be, based upon various factual representations and assumptions, as well as certain undertakings made by FNF and Splitco. Any inaccuracy in the representations or assumptions upon which such ruling or tax opinion is based, or failure by FNF or Splitco to comply with any undertakings made in connection with such ruling or tax opinion, could alter the conclusions reached in such ruling or tax opinion. Opinions with respect to these matters are not binding on the IRS or the courts. As a result, the conclusions expressed in these opinions could be challenged by the IRS and a court could sustain such a challenge.

        Even if the Split-Off otherwise qualifies under Sections 355, 361 and 368 of the Code, the Split-Off would result in a significant U.S. federal income tax liability to FNF (but not to holders of FNFV common stock) under Section 355(e) of the Code if one or more persons acquire, directly or indirectly, a 50% or greater interest (measured by vote or value) in the stock of Splitco as part of a plan or series of related transactions that includes the Split-Off. Current law generally creates a presumption that any acquisitions of the stock of Splitco within two years before or after the Split-Off are part of a plan that includes the Split-Off, although the parties may be able to rebut that presumption. The process for determining whether an acquisition is part of a plan under these rules is complex, inherently factual and subject to interpretation of the facts and circumstances of a particular case. Notwithstanding the IRS ruling and the opinion of Deloitte Tax described above, Splitco might inadvertently cause or permit a prohibited change in the ownership of Splitco to occur, thereby triggering a tax liability to FNF. If the Split-Off is determined to be taxable to FNF, FNF would recognize gain equal to the excess of the fair market value of the Splitco common stock held by it immediately before the Split-Off over FNF's tax basis therein. Open market purchases of Splitco common stock by third parties without any negotiation with Splitco will generally not cause Section 355(e) of the Code to apply to the Split-Off.

        If it is subsequently determined, for whatever reason, that the Split-Off does not qualify for tax-free treatment, holders of FNFV common stock immediately prior to the Split-Off, and/or FNF could incur significant tax liabilities. Under the tax matters agreement, Splitco will be obligated to indemnify FNF and its subsidiaries for any losses and taxes resulting from the failure of the Split-Off to be a tax-free transaction described under Sections 355, 361 and 368 of the Code unless such failure results from (i) any action by FNF or its subsidiaries, or the failure to take any action within their control, after the Split-Off, which negates the tax-free status of the transactions, or (ii) direct or indirect changes in ownership of FNF equity interests after the Split-Off that cause the Split-Off to be a taxable event to FNF as a result of the application of Section 355(e) of the Code or to be a taxable event as a result of a failure to satisfy the "continuity of interest" or "device" requirements for tax-free treatment under Section 355 of the Code.

We may determine to forgo certain transactions in order to avoid the risk of incurring significant tax-related liabilities.

        Under the tax matters agreement, Splitco will covenant not to take or fail to take any reasonably required action, following the Split-Off, which action or failure to act, would (i) be inconsistent with any covenant or representation made by Splitco in any document related to the Spin-Off, or (ii) prevent, or be reasonably likely to prevent, the tax-free status of the Split-Off. Further, the tax matters agreement will require that Splitco generally indemnify FNF and its subsidiaries for any taxes or losses resulting from the failure of the Split-Off to be a tax-free transaction described under Sections 355, 361 and 368 of the Code unless such failure results from (i) any action by FNF or its subsidiaries, or the failure to take any action within their control, after the Split-Off, which negates the tax-free status of the transactions, or (ii) direct or indirect changes in ownership of FNF equity interests after the Split-Off that cause the Split-Off to be a taxable event to FNF as a result of the application of Section 355(e) of the Code or to be a taxable event as a result of a failure to satisfy the

34


Table of Contents

"continuity of interest" or "device" requirements for tax-free treatment under Section 355 of the Code. As a result, Splitco might determine to forgo certain transactions that might have otherwise been advantageous in order to preserve the tax-free treatment of the Split-Off.

        In particular, Splitco might determine to continue to operate certain of its business operations for the foreseeable future even if a liquidation or sale of such business might otherwise be advantageous. Moreover, in light of the requirements of Section 355(e) of the Code, Splitco might determine to forgo certain transactions, including share repurchases, stock issuances, certain asset dispositions and other strategic transactions, for some period of time following the Split-Off. In addition, Splitco's indemnity obligation under the tax matters agreement might discourage, delay or prevent a third party from entering into a change of control transaction with us for some period of time following the Split-Off.

We may incur material costs as a result of our separation from FNF, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        We will incur costs and expenses not previously incurred as a result of our separation from FNF. These increased costs and expenses may arise from various factors, including financial reporting, costs associated with complying with the federal securities laws (including compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (Sarbanes-Oxley)), tax administration and human resources related functions. Although FNF will continue to provide many of these services for us at no-cost (other than reimbursement of FNF's out-of-pocket costs and expenses) under the corporate services agreement for up to three years following the Split-Off (after the initial three-year term, if the corporate services agreement is not mutually terminated by Splitco and FNF prior to the expiration of the initial three-year term, the corporate services agreement will automatically renew for successive one-year terms on mutually agreeable arm's length terms unless FNF and Splitco mutually agree to terminate the agreement), we cannot assure you that we will not incur third-party vendor costs or out-of-pocket expenses under the corporate services agreement that are material to our business. Moreover, we will have to develop internal departments/functions to perform the services at the end of the term of the corporate services agreement. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Corporate Services Agreement."

Prior to the Split-Off, we will not have been a separate company and we may be unable to make, on a timely or cost-effective basis, the changes necessary to operate as a separate company, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Prior to the Split-Off, our business was operated by FNF as part of its broader corporate organization, rather than as a separate company. FNF's senior management oversaw the strategic direction of our businesses and FNF performed various corporate functions for us, including, but not limited to:

        Following the Split-Off, FNF will not have any obligation to provide these functions to us other than those services that will be provided by FNF pursuant to the corporate services agreement between us and FNF. If, once our corporate services agreement terminates, we do not have in place our own systems and business functions, we do not have agreements with other providers of these services or we

are not able to make these changes cost effectively, we may not be able to operate our business effectively and our profitability may decline. If FNF does not continue to perform effectively the services to be provided to us under the corporate services agreement, we may not be able to operate our business effectively after the Split-Off.

We may not realize the potential benefits from the Split-Off in the near term or at all.

        In this proxy statement/prospectus, we have described anticipated strategic and financial benefits we expect to realize as a result of our separation from FNF. See "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal—Reasons for the Split-Off." In particular, we believe that the Split-Off will better position us to take advantage of business opportunities, strategic alliances and other acquisitions through Splitco's enhanced acquisition currency. We also expect the Split-Off to enable Splitco to provide its employees with more attractive equity incentive awards. However, no assurance can be given that the market will react favorably to the Split-Off, thereby causing Splitco's equity to not be as attractive to its employees as well as any potential acquisition counterparties. In addition, no assurance can be given that any investment, acquisition or other strategic opportunities will become available following the Split-Off on terms that Splitco finds favorable or at all. Given the added costs associated with the completion of the Split-Off, including the separate accounting, legal and other compliance costs of being a separate public company, our failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the Split-Off in the near term or at all could adversely affect our company.

Our company has an overlapping director and overlapping officers with FNF, which may lead to conflicting interests.

        After the Split-Off, four of our executive officers, Brent B. Bickett, Richard L. Cox, Michael L. Gravelle and David Ducommun, also will be employed by FNF or FNF's subsidiaries and one of our directors, William P. Foley, II, also will serve on the boards of directors of FNF or its subsidiaries. Our executive officers and members of our board of directors have fiduciary duties to our stockholders. Likewise, any such persons who serve in similar capacities at FNF or any other public company have fiduciary duties to that company's stockholders. We also are party to a variety of related party agreements and relationships with FNF and certain of FNF's subsidiaries and FNF and subsidiaries of FNF will have an ownership interest in Splitco following the Split-Off. From time to time, we may enter into transactions with FNF and/or its respective subsidiaries or other affiliates. There can be no assurance that the terms of any such transactions will be as favorable to our company, FNF or any of our or its respective subsidiaries or affiliates as would be the case where there is no overlapping officer or director.

Our inter-company agreements are being negotiated while we are a subsidiary of FNF.

        We are entering into a number of inter-company agreements covering matters such as tax sharing and our responsibility for certain liabilities previously undertaken by FNF for certain of our businesses. In addition, we are entering into (i) a corporate services agreement with FNF, pursuant to which FNF will provide to us certain "back office" services at no-cost (other than reimbursement of FNF's out-of-pocket costs and expenses), (ii) a voting agreement with FNF, pursuant to which FNF agrees to appear or cause all shares of Splitco common stock that FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, own after the Split-Off to be counted as present at any meeting of the stockholders of Splitco, for the purpose of establishing a quorum, and agrees to vote all of such Splitco shares (or cause them to be voted) in the same manner as, and in the same proportion to, all shares voted by holders of Splitco common stock (other than FNF and its subsidiaries), (iii) a registration rights agreement, pursuant to which FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will receive registration rights with respect to the FNF Splitco shares and (iv) a revolver note with FNF, pursuant to which Splitco may borrow revolving loans, the proceeds of which may be used for investment purposes and working capital needs, from FNF from

time to time in an aggregate amount not to exceed $100.0 million, (see "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Corporate Services Agreement", "—Voting Agreement", "—Registration Rights Agreement" and "—Revolver Note" respectively). The terms of all of these agreements are being established while we are a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF, and hence may not be the result of arm's length negotiations. We believe that the terms of these inter-company agreements are commercially reasonable and fair to all parties under the circumstances; however, conflicts could arise in the interpretation or any extension or renegotiation of the foregoing agreements after the Split-Off. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions."

The FNF board of directors may abandon the Split-Off at any time, or the board of directors may determine to amend the terms of any agreement we enter into relating to the Split-Off.

        No assurance can be given that the Split-Off will occur, or if it occurs that it will occur on the terms described in this proxy statement/prospectus. In addition to the conditions to the Split-Off described herein (certain of which may be waived by the FNF board of directors in its sole discretion), the FNF board of directors may abandon the Split-Off at any time prior to the redemption effective time for any reason or for no reason. Additionally, the agreements to be entered into by Splitco with FNF in connection with the Split-Off (including the reorganization agreement, the tax matters agreement, the corporate services agreement, the voting agreement and the registration rights agreement) may be amended or modified prior to the redemption effective time in the sole discretion of FNF, as applicable. If any condition to the Split-Off is waived or if any material amendments or modifications are made to the terms of the Split-Off or to such ancillary agreements prior to the Split-Off, FNF intends to promptly issue a press release and file a Current Report on Form 8-K informing the market of the substance of such waiver, amendment or modification.

Factors Relating to Splitco's Common Stock and the Securities Market

We cannot be certain that an active trading market will develop or be sustained after the Split-Off, and following the Split-Off, our stock price may fluctuate significantly, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        There can be no assurance that an active trading market will develop or be sustained for our common stock after the Split-Off. We cannot predict the price at which our common stock may trade after the Split-Off, the effect of the Split-Off on the trading prices of the FNF common stock or whether the market value of the shares of our common stock held by a stockholder after the Split-Off will be less than, equal to or greater than the market value of a share of the FNFV common stock held by such stockholder prior to the Split-Off.

        The market price of our common stock may fluctuate significantly due to a number of factors, some of which may be beyond our control, including:

37


Table of Contents

If, following the Split-Off, we are unable to satisfy the requirements of Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley, or our internal control over financial reporting is not effective, the reliability of our financial statements may be questioned and our stock price may suffer, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

        Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley requires any company subject to the reporting requirements of the U.S. securities laws to do a comprehensive evaluation of its and its consolidated subsidiaries' internal control over financial reporting. To comply with this statute, we will be required to document and test our internal control procedures, our management will be required to assess and issue a report concerning our internal control over financial reporting, and our independent auditors will be required to issue an opinion on management's assessment of those matters. Our compliance with Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley will first be tested in connection with the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018. The rules governing the standards that must be met for management to assess our internal control over financial reporting are complex and require significant documentation, testing and possible remediation to meet the detailed standards under the rules.

        During the course of its testing, our management may identify material weaknesses or significant deficiencies which may not be remedied in time to meet the deadline imposed by Sarbanes-Oxley. If our management cannot favorably assess the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting or our auditors identify material weaknesses in our internal controls, investor confidence in our financial results may weaken, and our stock price may suffer.

Our charter, bylaws and provisions of Delaware law may discourage or prevent strategic transactions, including a takeover of our company, even if such a transaction would be beneficial to our stockholders.

        Provisions contained in our charter and bylaws and provisions of the Delaware General Corporate Law (DGCL), could delay or prevent a third party from entering into a strategic transaction with us, as applicable, even if such a transaction would benefit our stockholders. For example, our charter and bylaws:

        These restrictions and provisions could keep us from pursuing relationships with strategic partners and from raising additional capital, which could impede our ability to expand our business and strengthen our competitive position. These restrictions could also limit stockholder value by impeding a sale of our company. See "Description of Capital Stock of Splitco" and "Comparison of Rights of Stockholders Before and After the Split-Off."

CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS CONCERNING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

        Certain statements in this proxy statement/prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference herein constitute forward-looking statements, including certain statements relating to the business strategies, market potential and future financial performance of Splitco and its subsidiaries, and other matters. In particular, information included under "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal," "Risk Factors," "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," "Description of Splitco's Business," "Combined Financial Statements" and "Consolidated Financial Statements" contain forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements inherently involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in these statements. Where, in any forward-looking statement, Splitco or FNF express an expectation or belief as to future results or events, such expectation or belief is expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis, but such statements necessarily involve risks and uncertainties and there can be no assurance that the expectation or belief will result or be achieved or accomplished. The use of words such as "anticipates," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "plans" and "believes," among others, generally identify forward-looking statements; however, these words are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements.

        These forward-looking statements and such risks, uncertainties and other factors speak only as of the date of this proxy statement/prospectus, and Splitco or FNF expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to disseminate any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statement contained herein or therein, to reflect any change in our expectations with regard thereto, or any other change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. When considering such forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the factors described in "Risk Factors" and other cautionary statements contained or incorporated in this document. Such risk factors and statements describe circumstances which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

THE SPECIAL MEETING

Time, Place and Date

        The special meeting of the stockholders is to be held on [    ·    ], 2017 at [    ·    ], Eastern time, at the corporate office of Fidelity National Financial, Inc., 601 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32204.

Purpose

        At the special meeting, holders of FNFV common stock will be asked to consider and vote on (i) the redemption proposal, which would allow FNF to redeem all of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for outstanding shares of Splitco, and (ii) the adjournment proposal. See "The Split-Off and Redemption Proposal" and "Adjournment Proposal" for more information regarding the Proposals.

Quorum

        In order to conduct the business of the special meeting, a quorum must be present. This means that stockholders who hold shares representing at least a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote at the special meeting must be represented at the special meeting either in person or by proxy. For purposes of determining a quorum, your shares will be included as represented at the meeting even if you indicate on your proxy that you abstain from voting.

        Under NYSE rules, banks, brokers and other nominees may use their discretion to vote "uninstructed" shares (i.e., shares held of record by banks, brokerage firms or other nominees but with respect to which the beneficial owner of such shares has not provided instructions on how to vote on a particular proposal) with respect to matters that are considered to be "routine," but not with respect to "non-routine" matters. "Non-routine" matters are matters that may substantially affect the rights or privileges of stockholders, such as mergers, stockholder proposals, elections of directors (even if not contested), executive compensation (including any advisory stockholder votes on executive compensation) and certain corporate governance proposals, even if management-supported. A "broker non-vote" occurs on an item when (i) a broker, nominee or intermediary has discretionary authority to vote on one or more proposals to be voted on at a meeting of stockholders, but is not permitted to vote on other proposals without instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares and (ii) the beneficial owner fails to provide the broker, nominee or intermediary with such instructions. Because none of the proposals to be voted on at the special meeting are routine matters for which brokers may have discretionary authority to vote, there will not be any broker non-votes at the special meeting.

        If a quorum is not present or represented at the special meeting, the stockholders entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall have the power to adjourn the meeting, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or represented.

Who May Vote

        Holders of shares of FNFV common stock, as recorded in FNF's stock register as of the close of business on October 6, 2017, the record date for the special meeting, may vote together, as a separate class, on the Proposals at the special meeting or at any adjournment or postponement thereof. Holders of shares of FNF common stock are not entitled to vote at the special meeting.

Votes Required

        Each of the Proposals requires the approval of the holders of record, as of the record date for the special meeting, of FNFV common stock that are present in person or by proxy at such meeting, voting together as a separate class.

40


Table of Contents

        As of the record date for the special meeting, FNF's directors and executive officers beneficially owned approximately 6.1% of the total voting power of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock. FNF has been informed that all of its executive officers and directors intend to vote "FOR" each of the Proposals.

Votes You Have

        At the special meeting, holders of shares of FNFV common stock will have one vote per share for each share that FNF's records show they owned as of the record date.

Shares Outstanding

        As of the record date, an aggregate of 64,864,950 shares of FNFV common stock were issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the special meeting.

Number of Holders

        There were, as of the record date, approximately 5,300 record holders of FNFV common stock (which amount does not include the number of stockholders whose shares are held of record by banks, brokers or other nominees, but include each such institution as one holder).

Voting Procedures for Record Holders

        Holders of record of FNFV common stock as of the record date may vote in person at the special meeting. Alternatively, they may give a proxy by completing, signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card by mail, or by voting by telephone or through the Internet. Instructions for voting by using the telephone or the Internet are printed on the proxy voting instructions attached to the proxy card. In order to vote through the Internet, holders should have their proxy cards available so they can input the required information from the card, and log onto the Internet website address shown on the proxy card. When holders log onto the Internet website address, they will receive instructions on how to vote their shares. The telephone and Internet voting procedures are designed to authenticate votes cast by use of a personal identification number, which will be provided to each voting stockholder separately. Unless subsequently revoked, shares of FNFV common stock represented by a proxy submitted as described herein and received at or before the special meeting will be voted in accordance with the instructions on the proxy.

        YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT.    It is recommended that you vote by proxy even if you plan to attend the special meeting. You may change your vote at the special meeting.

        If a proxy is signed and returned by a record holder without indicating any voting instructions, the shares of FNF common stock represented by the proxy will be voted "FOR" the approval of each of the Proposals.

        If you submit a proxy card on which you indicate that you abstain from voting, it will have the same effect as a vote "AGAINST" each of the Proposals.

        If you fail to respond with a vote, your shares will not be counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining a quorum, but your failure to vote will have no effect on determining whether the Proposals are approved (if a quorum is present).

Voting Procedures for Shares Held in Street Name

        General.    If you hold your shares in the name of a broker, bank or other nominee, you should follow the instructions provided by your broker, bank or other nominee when voting your shares of FNFV common stock or when granting or revoking a proxy.

41


Table of Contents

        No Effect of Broker Non-Votes.    Under NYSE rules, banks, brokers and other nominees may use their discretion to vote "uninstructed" shares (i.e., shares held of record by banks, brokerage firms or other nominees but with respect to which the beneficial owner of such shares has not provided instructions on how to vote on a particular proposal) with respect to matters that are considered to be "routine," but not with respect to "non-routine" matters. "Non-routine" matters are matters that may substantially affect the rights or privileges of stockholders, such as mergers, stockholder proposals, elections of directors (even if not contested), executive compensation (including any advisory stockholder votes on executive compensation) and certain corporate governance proposals, even if management-supported. A "broker non-vote" occurs on an item when (i) a broker, nominee or intermediary has discretionary authority to vote on one or more proposals to be voted on at a meeting of stockholders, but is not permitted to vote on other proposals without instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares and (ii) the beneficial owner fails to provide the broker, nominee or intermediary with such instructions. Because none of the proposals to be voted on at the special meeting are routine matters for which brokers may have discretionary authority to vote, there will not be any broker non-votes at the special meeting. You should follow the directions your broker, bank or other nominee provides to you regarding how to vote your shares of common stock or when granting or revoking a proxy.

Revoking a Proxy

        Before the start of the special meeting, you may change your vote by voting in person at the special meeting or by delivering a signed proxy revocation or a new signed proxy with a later date to Fidelity National Financial, Inc., 601 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32204, Attention: Corporate Secretary. Any proxy revocation or new proxy must be received before the start of the special meeting. In addition, you may change your vote through the Internet or by telephone (if you originally voted by the corresponding method) not later than [    ·    ], Eastern time, on [    ·    ], 2017.

        Your attendance at the special meeting will not, by itself, revoke your proxy.

        If your shares are held in an account by a broker, bank or other nominee, you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee to change your vote.

Solicitation of Proxies

        The accompanying proxy for the special meeting is being solicited on behalf of the FNF board of directors. In addition to this mailing, FNF's employees may solicit proxies personally, by telephone or by electronic communication. FNF pays the cost of soliciting these proxies. FNF also reimburses brokers and other nominees for their expenses in sending these materials to you and getting your voting instructions. FNF has also retained Georgeson to assist in the solicitation of proxies at a cost of $9,500.00, plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses.

        If you have any further questions about voting or attending the special meeting, please contact FNF Investor Relations at (904) 854-8100 or its proxy solicitor, Georgeson, at 1-888-680-1529.

THE SPLIT-OFF AND REDEMPTION PROPOSAL

General

        Under the terms of the FNF charter, the FNF board of directors may, subject to the approval of the holders of the FNFV common stock voting as a separate class, redeem all of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for outstanding shares of Splitco common stock. The FNF board of directors has determined to redeem all of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for outstanding shares of common stock of Splitco, subject to the receipt of the requisite stockholder approval and the satisfaction or, where permissible, waiver of the other conditions described below.

        Accordingly, the FNF board of directors has determined to submit the redemption proposal for the approval of the FNFV stockholders.

Background for the Split-Off

        FNF's management and board of directors regularly look for opportunities to maximize profitability in all of its businesses and continue to strive to create as much value as possible for its stockholders.

        On June 30, 2014, FNF completed a recapitalization of its common stock into two tracking stocks, the FNF Group and the FNFV Group, for the purpose of providing stockholders with greater transparency and increased investor choice, among other reasons. Both the FNF Group and FNFV Group common stocks began regular trading on July 1, 2014 and both classes of FNF common stock continue to trade on the NYSE. Tracking stock is a type of common stock that the issuing company intends to reflect or "track" the economic performance of a particular business or "group," rather than the economic performance of the company as a whole. While the FNF Group and the FNFV Group have separate collections of businesses, assets and liabilities attributed to them, no group is a separate legal entity and therefore no group can own assets, issue securities or enter into legally binding agreements. Holders of tracking stocks have no direct claim to the group's stock or assets and are not represented by separate boards of directors. Instead, holders of tracking stock are stockholders of the parent corporation, FNF, with a single board of directors and subject to all of the risks and liabilities of the parent corporation.

        The FNF Group consists primarily of FNF's businesses that provide (i) title insurance, technology and transaction services to the real estate and mortgage industries (including FNF's title insurance underwriters Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title Insurance Company, Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company, Alamo Title Company and National Title Insurance of New York) and (ii) mortgage technology solutions and transaction services (such services being provided primarily through FNF's majority-owned subsidiaries, Black Knight Financial Services, LLC and ServiceLink Holdings, LLC).

        The FNFV Group consists primarily of businesses and investments that FNF controls, operates or holds, as applicable, including the portfolio companies.

        Although the public markets have responded favorably to these two tracking stocks, FNF believes that additional stockholder value can be created by separating the two tracking stocks into separate legal entities. Accordingly, in December 2016, the FNF board of directors determined to pursue the Split-Off, as described in more detail below.

        Our company is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF. Upon completion of the Split-Off, our principal businesses, assets and liabilities will consist of FNF's ownership interests in the portfolio companies, anticipated corporate level cash and cash equivalents of $235.5 million, which will include the $100.0 million cash contribution by FNF or its subsidiaries to Splitco (see "—The Redemption; Redemption Ratio" below) and $128.5 million in indebtedness.

43


Table of Contents

Reasons for the Split-Off

        In determining to approve the Split-Off, it was believed that the Split-Off would result in the creation of stockholder value because, among other things, the trading value of Splitco's common stock would exceed the trading value of the existing FNFV common stock, although there can be no assurance that this will occur. The FNF board of directors took into account a number of factors approving the Split-Off, including the following:

        The FNF board of directors also considered a number of costs and risks associated with the Split-Off in approving the Split-Off, including the following:

44


Table of Contents

        The FNF board of directors evaluated the costs and benefits of the transaction as a whole and did not find it necessary to assign relative weights to the specific factors considered. The FNF board of directors concluded, however, that the potential benefits of the Split-Off outweighed its potential costs, and that separating our company from FNF through the Split-Off is appropriate, advisable and in the best interests of FNF and its stockholders. The FNF board of directors did not consider alternatives to the Split-Off due to the nature of the particular assets and businesses to be held by Splitco upon completion of the Split-Off.

Vote and Recommendation

        The approval of a majority of the aggregate voting power of the shares of FNFV common stock, outstanding on the record date, that are present in person or by proxy at the special meeting, voting together as a separate class, is required to approve the redemption proposal.

        The FNF board of directors has unanimously approved the redemption proposal and believes that the adoption of the redemption proposal is in the best interests of FNF and its stockholders. Accordingly, the FNF board of directors unanimously recommends that the holders of FNFV common stock vote in favor of the redemption proposal.

The Redemption; Redemption Ratio

        Pursuant to the redemption proposal, holders of FNFV common stock are being asked to approve the redemption of all of such holders' outstanding shares of FNFV common stock for shares of Splitco common stock. Prior to the redemption, the Splitco Assets and Liabilities would be contributed to Splitco. The assets and liabilities that are attributed to FNF's other tracking stock group, the FNF Group, will not change as a result of the Split-Off, except as described in the "Description of Splitco's Business" in this proxy statement/prospectus.

        A more complete description of the businesses and assets that will be contributed to Splitco at the time of the Split-Off can be found in "Description of Splitco's Business" in this proxy statement/prospectus.

        Splitco common stock will not have the attributes of a tracking stock and thus, the Splitco charter will not contain any provisions specific to a tracking stock structure. For a comparison of rights of holders of Splitco common stock and FNFV common stock, see "Description of Capital Stock of Splitco" and "Comparison of Rights of Stockholders Before and After the Split-Off."

        If all conditions to the Split-Off are satisfied or, where permissible, waived, FNF will redeem 100% of the shares of FNFV common stock outstanding on the redemption date for shares of Splitco. Accordingly, on the redemption date, each outstanding share of FNFV common stock will be redeemed for one share of Splitco common stock, subject, in each case, to the payment of cash in lieu of any fractional shares. By way of example, a holder of 100 shares of FNFV common stock would receive 100 shares of Splitco common stock.

        The actual redemption date will be established by the FNF board of directors following the satisfaction or, where permissible, waiver of all conditions to the Split-Off (other than those which by their terms can only be satisfied concurrently with the redemption date). Once established, the redemption date will be publicly announced by FNF. The redemption effective time is expected to be 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on the redemption date.

        Prior to the redemption, the board of FNF expects to create an inter-group interest in the FNFV Group in favor of the FNF Group through a $100.0 million investment in Splitco by FNF or its subsidiaries (the FNF Splitco inter-group investment). An inter-group interest is a quasi-equity interest that one group is deemed to hold in the other group. Inter-group interests are not represented by outstanding shares of common stock, rather they have an attributed value which is generally stated in

45


Table of Contents

terms of a number of shares of stock issuable to one group with respect to an inter-group interest in the other group.

        Pursuant to the terms of the FNF charter, if the FNF Group has an inter-group interest in the FNFV Group at such time as any extraordinary action is taken with respect to the FNFV common stock (such as the redemption of such stock for stock of a subsidiary, as is the case in the Split-Off), the FNF board of directors will consider what actions are required, or permitted, to be taken under the FNF charter with respect to the FNF Group's inter-group interest in the FNFV Group. In the case of a redemption of FNFV common stock for the stock of a subsidiary, as is the case in the Split-Off, the board of directors of FNF in its discretion may settle the inter-group interest with shares of the stock of such subsidiary. In connection with the redemption, the FNF board intends to approve the transfer of the FNF Splitco shares, and, as a result, the FNF Splitco inter-group investment will be eliminated and FNF will hold the FNF Splitco shares.

        As of October 16, 2017, there were 64,864,950 outstanding shares of FNFV common stock. Based on the number of shares of FNFV common stock outstanding on October 16, 2017, Splitco expects to issue approximately 64,864,950 shares of its common stock (not taking into account the FNF Splitco Shares). Following the Split-Off, due to its ownership of the FNF Splitco shares, FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, are expected to own, in the aggregate, approximately 8% of Splitco. FNF or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will dispose of such Splitco shares as soon as a disposition is warranted consistent with the business reasons for the ownership of such shares, but in no event later than five years after the Split-Off, and be subject to certain restrictions regarding voting of the FNF Splitco shares. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Voting Agreement."

Effect of the Redemption

        From and after the redemption effective time, holders of FNFV common stock will no longer have any rights with respect to those shares of FNFV common stock, except for the right to receive the applicable whole number of shares of Splitco common stock to which such holders are entitled, and any payments of cash in lieu of fractional shares.

        FNF will deliver or make available to all holders of certificated shares of FNFV common stock a letter of transmittal with which to surrender those of their certificated shares to be redeemed in exchange for shares of Splitco common stock in book-entry form. Holders of certificated shares of FNFV common must surrender their stock certificates together with a duly executed letter of transmittal (and any other documentation required thereby) in order to receive their Splitco shares in the Split-Off. Registration in book-entry form refers to a method of recording stock ownership when no physical share certificates are issued to stockholders, as is the case in the Split-Off.

        Accounts holding shares of FNFV common stock in book-entry form will be debited for the number of shares to be redeemed as of the redemption effective time, and promptly thereafter credited with the applicable number of shares of Splitco common stock. No letters of transmittal will be delivered to holders of shares in book-entry form, and holders of book-entry shares of FNFV common stock will not need to take any action to receive their Splitco shares in the Split-Off.

        After the redemption, the number of shares of FNF common stock outstanding prior to the Split-Off will not change as a result of the Split-Off.

        In considering the recommendation of the FNF board to vote to approval the redemption proposal, holders of FNFV common stock should be aware that the certain executive officers and directors of FNF will receive Splitco restricted shares in exchange for any FNFV restricted shares they

Table of Contents

hold at the time of the Split-Off. See "—Effect of the Split-Off on Outstanding FNFV Group Incentive Awards" below for more information.

        Holders of FNFV common stock should also be aware that certain current executive officers of FNF will also serve as executive officers of Splitco immediately following the Split-Off. See "Risk Factors—Factors Relating to the Split-Off and the Proposals—Our company has an overlapping director and overlapping officers with FNF, which may lead to conflicting interests" and "Management of Splitco." Furthermore, the executive officers of FNF and Splitco are entitled to indemnification with respect to actions taken by them in connection with the Split-Off under the organizational documents of FNF and Splitco. See "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions—Relationships Between Splitco and FNF—Reorganization Agreement."

        As of October 6, 2017, FNF's executive officers and directors beneficially owned shares of FNFV common stock representing in the aggregate approximately 6.1% of the aggregate voting power of the outstanding shares of FNFV common stock. FNF has been informed that all of its executive officers and directors intend to vote "FOR" the redemption proposal.

        The FNF board of directors was aware of these interests and considered them when it approved the redemption proposal.

Conditions to the Split-Off

        The FNF board of directors has reserved the right, in its sole discretion, to amend, modify, delay or abandon the Split-Off and the related transactions at any time prior to the redemption effective time. In addition, the completion of the Split-Off and related transactions are subject to the satisfaction (as determined by the FNF board of directors in its sole discretion) of the following conditions, certain of which may be waived by the FNF board of directors in its sole discretion:

        The first four conditions set forth above are non-waivable. The FNF board of directors may, however, waive the fifth condition set forth above. In the event the FNF board of directors waives a material condition to the Split-Off, FNF intends to promptly issue a press release and file a Current Report on Form 8-K to report such event.

Effect of the Split-Off on Outstanding FNFV Group Incentive Awards

        At the redemption effective time, each FNFV restricted share will be redeemed for one share of Splitco restricted share. The Splitco restricted shares will continue to have and be subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such FNFV restricted shares immediately before the redemption (including vesting and transfer restrictions).

Effect of the Split-Off on FNF Convertible Notes

        As a result of the prior recapitalization of FNF's common stock into two tracking stocks, the FNF Group and the FNFV Group, completed on June 30, 2014, FNF's 4.25% Convertible Notes due 2018 (the Convertible Notes) are convertible into FNF common stock and FNFV common stock. Following the Split-Off, the Convertible Notes will be convertible only into shares of FNF common stock, and at the redemption effective time, the Conversion Rate (as defined in the indenture governing the Convertible Notes) shall be increased to give effect to the Split-Off. FNF will continue to have the option to settle conversions in stock, cash or a combination of stock and cash.

MATERIAL U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE SPLIT-OFF

        The following is a discussion of the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Split-Off to U.S. holders (as defined below) of Splitco common stock. This discussion is consistent with the tax opinion to be received from Deloitte Tax as to the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Split-Off to U.S. holders of Splitco common stock. This discussion is based on the Code, applicable Treasury regulations, administrative interpretations and court decisions as in effect as of the date of this proxy statement/prospectus, all of which may change, possibly with retroactive effect. This discussion assumes that the Split-Off will be completed in accordance with the terms of the reorganization agreement. FNF has received a private letter ruling from the IRS regarding an issue relating to the tax-free treatment of the Split-Off. However, no ruling has been or will be sought from the IRS as to the general U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Split-Off, and the following summary is not binding on the IRS or the courts. As a result, the IRS could adopt a contrary position, and such a contrary position could be sustained by a court.

        For purposes of this discussion, a "U.S. holder" is a beneficial owner of a share of Splitco common stock that is:

        This discussion does not purport to be a complete analysis of all potential U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Split-Off, and, in particular, does not address U.S. federal income tax considerations applicable to stockholders subject to special treatment under U.S. federal income tax law (including, for example, non-U.S. holders, brokers or dealers in securities, financial institutions, mutual funds, real estate investment trusts, insurance companies, tax-exempt entities, holders who hold FNFV common stock as part of a hedge, appreciated financial position, straddle, conversion transaction or other risk reduction strategy, holders who acquired FNFV common stock pursuant to the exercise of an employee stock option or right or otherwise as compensation, holders that are partnerships or other pass-through entities or investors in partnerships or other pass-through entities and U.S. holders liable for the alternative minimum tax). In addition, this discussion does not address U.S. federal income tax considerations applicable to holders of options or warrants to purchase FNFV common stock. No information is provided herein with respect to the tax consequences of the Split-Off under applicable state, local or non-U.S. laws or under any proposed Treasury regulations that have not taken effect as of the date of this proxy statement/prospectus, or as relates to the Medicare tax on net investment income. This discussion only addresses U.S. holders who hold shares of FNFV common stock as capital assets within the meaning of Section 1221 of the Code.

        Holders of FNFV common stock should consult their own tax advisors concerning the tax consequences of the Split-Off to them, including the application of U.S. federal, state, local, foreign and other tax laws in light of their particular circumstances.

        FNF has structured the Split-Off to be treated as a tax-free transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In addition, FNF will receive an opinion from Deloitte Tax, tax advisor to FNF, to the effect that the contribution and the Split-Off should qualify as a tax-free reorganization under Sections 368(a) and 355 of the Code and a distribution to which Sections 355 and 361 of the Code applies. The opinion will be subject to customary qualifications and assumptions, including that the Split-Off will be completed according to the terms of the reorganization agreement. In rendering such tax opinion,

49


Table of Contents

Deloitte Tax will rely upon certain representations, covenants and assumptions, including representations made by officers of FNF and Splitco. If any of those representations, covenants or assumptions is inaccurate, the tax consequences of the Split-Off could differ from those described below. Opinions of tax advisors do not bind the IRS or the courts nor preclude the IRS from adopting a contrary position. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the IRS or the courts will not challenge such conclusions or that a court will not sustain such a challenge. As stated, FNF is not permitted to and does not intend to seek a ruling from the IRS regarding the general tax consequences of the Split-Off.

        Holders of FNFV common stock who have blocks of FNFV common stock with different per share tax bases should consult their own tax advisors regarding the possible tax basis consequences to them of the Split-Off.

Principal U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences to FNF

        Assuming the contribution and Split-Off qualifies for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a tax-free reorganization under Sections 368(a) and 355 of the Code and a distribution to which Sections 355 and 361 of the Code applies, no gain or loss will be recognized by, and no amount will be includible in the income of, FNF as a result of the Split-Off.

Principal U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences to Holders of FNFV Common Stock

        Assuming the Split-Off qualifies for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a tax-free distribution under Section 355 of the Code, the Split-Off generally will have the following tax consequences to holders of FNFV common stock who receive shares of Splitco common stock:

        If a stockholder receives cash in lieu of fractional shares of Splitco common stock, the stockholder will be treated as receiving such fractional shares in the Split-Off and then selling such fractional shares for the amount of cash received. The sale will generally result in the recognition of capital gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes, measured by the difference between the amount of cash received for such fractional shares and the stockholder's tax basis in such fractional shares (determined as described above).

Principal U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences to FNF and Holders of FNFV Common Stock if the Split-Off is Taxable

        If the contribution and Split-Off were to fail to qualify for tax-free treatment under Sections 355, 361 and 368 of the Code, then FNF would recognize gain equal to the excess of the fair market value of the Splitco common stock distributed by FNF in the Split-Off over FNF's tax basis in such stock. Each holder of FNFV common stock who receives shares of Splitco common stock in the Split-Off would generally be treated as either (i) recognizing a capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the fair market value of the shares of Splitco common stock received and the stockholder's tax

50


Table of Contents

basis in the FNFV common stock exchanged therefor, or (ii) in certain circumstances, receiving a taxable distribution in an amount equal to the total fair market value of the shares of Splitco common stock received, which would generally be taxed (a) as a dividend to the extent of FNF's current and accumulated earnings and profits, then (b) as a non-taxable return of capital to the extent of the stockholder's tax basis in its shares of FNFV common stock with respect to which the distribution was made (although there may be certain other alternatives for determining the amount of such non-taxable return of capital if the stockholder owns shares of FNFV common stock other than those upon which the distribution was made), and thereafter (c) as a capital gain with respect to the remaining value. A stockholder would have a tax basis in its shares of Splitco common stock following the Split-Off equal to the fair market value of such stock. Certain stockholders may be subject to special rules governing taxable distributions, such as those that relate to the dividends received deduction and extraordinary dividends.

        Even if the contribution and the Split-Off otherwise qualifies for tax-free treatment under Sections 355, 361 and 368 of the Code, the Split-Off would result in a significant U.S. federal income tax liability to FNF (but not to holders of FNFV common stock) under Section 355(e) of the Code if one or more persons acquire, directly or indirectly, a 50% or greater interest (measured by vote or value) in the stock of Splitco as part of a plan or series of related transactions that includes the Split-Off. Current law generally creates a presumption that any acquisitions of the stock of Splitco within two years before or after the Split-Off are part of a plan that includes the Split-Off, although the parties may be able to rebut that presumption. The process for determining whether an acquisition is part of a plan under these rules is complex, inherently factual and subject to interpretation of the facts and circumstances of a particular case. Splitco might inadvertently cause or permit a prohibited change in the ownership of Splitco to occur, thereby triggering a tax liability to FNF. If the Split-Off is determined to be taxable to FNF, FNF would recognize gain equal to the excess of the fair market value of the Splitco common stock held by it immediately before the Split-Off over FNF's tax basis therein. Open market purchases of Splitco common stock by third parties without any negotiation with Splitco will generally not cause Section 355(e) of the Code to apply to the Split-Off.

        In the tax matters agreement, Splitco will covenant not to take or fail to take any reasonably required action, following the Split-Off, which action or failure to act, would (i) be inconsistent with any covenant or representation made by Splitco in any document related to the Spin-Off, or (ii) prevent, or be reasonably likely to prevent, the tax-free status of the Split-Off. Further, the tax matters agreement will require that Splitco generally indemnify FNF and its subsidiaries for any taxes or losses resulting from the failure of the Split-Off to be a tax-free transaction described under Sections 355, 361 and 368 of the Code unless such failure results from (i) any action by FNF or its subsidiaries, or the failure to take any action within their control, after the Split-Off, which negates the tax-free status of the transactions, or (ii) direct or indirect changes in ownership of FNF equity interests after the Split-Off that cause the Split-Off to be a taxable event to FNF as a result of the application of Section 355(e) of the Code or to be a taxable event as a result of a failure to satisfy the "continuity of interest" or "device" requirements for tax-free treatment under Section 355 of the Code.

Backup Withholding

        Under the Code, a stockholder that receives cash in lieu of fractional shares of Splitco common stock may be subject, under certain circumstances, to backup withholding with respect to such cash at the rates provided for in the Code unless the stockholder provides proof of an applicable exemption or a correct taxpayer identification number, and otherwise complies with applicable requirements of the backup withholding rules. Amounts withheld under the backup withholding rules are not additional taxes and may be refunded or credited against such stockholder's U.S. federal income tax liability, provided that the stockholder furnishes the required information to the IRS.

Conduct of the Business of the FNFV Group if the Split-Off is Not Completed

        If the Split-Off is not completed, FNF intends to continue to conduct the business of the FNFV Group substantially in the same manner as it is operated today. From time to time, FNF will evaluate and review its business operations, properties, dividend policy and capitalization, and make such changes as are deemed appropriate, and continue to seek to identify strategic alternatives to maximize stockholder value.

Amount and Source of Funds and Financing of the Transaction; Expenses

        It is expected that FNF will incur an aggregate of approximately $5.533 million in expenses in connection with the Split-Off. These expenses will be comprised of:

        These expenses will be paid by FNF from its existing cash balances. These fees and expenses, however, do not include the payment of cash in lieu of the issuance of fractional shares of our common stock. Continental, as our company's transfer and exchange agent, will aggregate all fractional shares into whole shares and sell the whole shares at prevailing market prices on behalf of those holders who would have been entitled to receive a fractional share. Continental will determine, in its sole discretion, when, how and through which broker-dealers such sales will be made without any influence by us. We anticipate that these sales will occur as soon as practicable after the Split-Off is completed. Neither we nor Continental will guarantee any minimum sale price for any fractional shares.

Accounting Treatment

        The Split-Off will be accounted for at historical cost due to the fact that our common stock is to be distributed pro rata to holders of FNFV common stock.

No Appraisal Rights

        Under the DGCL, holders of FNFV common stock will not have appraisal rights in connection with the Split-Off.

Results of the Split-Off

        Immediately following the Split-Off, we expect to have outstanding approximately 64,864,950 shares of our common stock (not taking into account the FNF Splitco Shares), based upon the number of shares of FNFV common stock, outstanding as of the close of business on October 16, 2017. The actual number of shares of our common stock to be distributed in the Split-Off will depend upon the actual number of shares of FNFV common stock outstanding at the redemption effective time.

        Immediately following the Split-Off, we expect to have approximately 5,300 holders of record of our common stock, based upon the number of holders of record of FNFV common stock, as of October 6, 2017 (which amount does not include the number of stockholders whose shares are held of record by banks, brokerage houses or other institutions, but includes each such institution as one stockholder).

52


Table of Contents

Listing and Trading of our Common Stock

        On the date of this proxy statement/prospectus, we are a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF. Accordingly, there is no public market for our common stock. We expect to list our common stock on the NYSE under the symbol "CNNE". Neither we nor FNF can assure you as to the trading price of either series of our common stock after the Split-Off. The approval of NYSE for the listing of our common stock is a condition to the Split-Off, which may not be waived by the FNF board of directors.

Stock Transfer Agent and Registrar

        Continental is the transfer agent and registrar for all series of FNF common stock, including the FNFV common stock, and Splitco common stock.

ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL

        FNF is seeking the approval of holders of FNFV common stock to adjourn the special meeting even if a quorum is present, if necessary and appropriate, to solicit additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes at the special meeting to determine if stockholders are in favor of the redemption proposal. If the special meeting is adjourned, and the adjournment is for a period of 30 days or less, no notice of the time or place of the reconvened meeting will be given to holders of FNFV common stock other than an announcement made at the special meeting. At the adjourned meeting any business may be transacted that might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than 30 days, however, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each holder of record of FNFV common stock entitled to vote at the original meeting. If after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, the board of directors of FNF shall fix a new record date for notice of such adjourned meeting in accordance with Delaware law, and shall give notice of the adjourned meeting to each holder of record of FNFV common stock entitled to vote at such adjourned meeting as of the record date fixed for notice of such adjourned meeting.

Vote and Recommendation

        The approval of a majority of the aggregate voting power of the shares of FNFV common stock, outstanding on the record date, that are present in person or by proxy at the special meeting, voting together as a separate class, is required to approve the adjournment proposal.

        The FNF board of directors has unanimously approved the adjournment proposal and believes that the adoption of the adjournment proposal is in the best interests of FNF and its stockholders. Accordingly, the FNF board of directors unanimously recommends that the holders of FNFV common stock vote in favor of the adjournment proposal.

SELECTED UNAUDITED PRO FORMA FINANCIAL DATA

        On August 3, 2017, FNFV LLC entered into a definitive agreement (the 99 Merger Agreement), by and among J. Alexander's Holdings, Inc. (J. Alexander's), its subsidiary J. Alexander's Holdings, LLC (JAX Op), Nitro Merger Sub, Inc. (Merger Sub), a wholly-owned subsidiary of JAX Op, Fidelity Newport Holdings, LLC (FNH, together with FNFV LLC, the 99 Sellers), a 55% owned subsidiary of FNFV LLC, and 99 Restaurants, LLC (99 Restaurants), a wholly-owned subsidiary of FNH, to merge Merger Sub with and into 99 Restaurants, whereupon the separate existence of Merger Sub shall cease and 99 Restaurants shall continue as the surviving company and a subsidiary of JAX Op (the 99 Merger). 99 Restaurants is the owner of our Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub restaurant concept. Pursuant to the 99 Merger Agreement, FNH will exchange 100% of its ownership interest in 99 Restaurants for common share equivalents of J. Alexander's (as described below).

        Under the terms of the 99 Merger Agreement, 99 Restaurants will be valued at an enterprise value of $199.0 million, with consideration to be paid to the 99 Sellers by J. Alexander's and JAX Op consisting of newly issued equity valued at $179.0 million, issued in the form of 16,272,727 new Class B Units of JAX Op and 16,272,727 shares of new Class B Common Stock of J. Alexander's, and the assumption of $20.0 million of net debt. FNH and FNFV LLC will receive approximately 12.64 million and 3.63 million of each of the Class B Common Stock and Class B Units issued, respectively. Therefore, Splitco will directly control 11.7% of the voting interest through its directly held Class B shares and indirectly control 40.8% of the voting interest through its control of FNH's directly held Class B shares. For purposes of the 99 Merger, each Class B Unit, together with one share of Class B Common Stock, will be issued at an agreed price of $11.00. Prior to the 99 Merger, 99 Restaurants will assume $60.0 million of currently outstanding debt of certain of its affiliates and FNFV LLC will contribute $40.0 million to 99 Restaurants in exchange for newly issued membership interest in 99 Restaurants. The proceeds of this cash contribution will be used by J. Alexander's to repay a portion of the assumed debt immediately following the closing of the 99 Merger. William P. Foley, II will join the J. Alexander's Board of Directors, and it is expected that Lonnie J. Stout II will remain Chief Executive Officer of the combined company. Closing is contingent on customary closing conditions, including approval of the shareholders of J. Alexander's and certain regulatory clearances, and is expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.

        As a result of the 99 Merger, FNFV LLC will, together with its majority-owned subsidiary FNH, control approximately 52.5% of the voting interest of J. Alexander's through its direct and indirect ownership of approximately 52.5% of J. Alexander's Class B Common Shares. In accordance with ASC 805-10-25-5 we have preliminarily determined that FNFV LLC will obtain control of the majority of the outstanding voting shares of J. Alexander's as defined by ASC Subtopic 810-10 indicating FNFV LLC is the accounting acquirer in the 99 Merger and will consolidate the results of J. Alexander's.

        We further considered ASC 805-10-55-11 through 55-15 which further support the preliminary conclusion that FNFV LLC will be the accounting acquirer as FNFV LLC is expected to: (1) gain control of J. Alexander's through its majority voting rights acquired by it and its majority-owned subsidiary FNH (ASC 805-10-55-12(a)), (2) have control over the composition of the board of directors of J. Alexander's (ASC 805-10-55-12(c)), (3) be the combining entity which dominates the composition of the combined company's senior management (ASC 805-10-55-15(d)), and (4) be the combining entity with larger relative size in terms of assets and revenues (ASC 805-10-55-13). Furthermore, FNFV LLC's initiation of the transaction is a further indication of its identification as the accounting acquirer (ASC 805-10-55-14). We also considered ASC 805-10-55-11, 55-12(b), 55-12(e) and 55-15 and

56


Table of Contents

do not believe that they are determining factors in the accounting conclusions reached related to the 99 Merger. As a result of these considerations, we expect to account for the 99 Merger by applying the acquisition method with FNFV LLC, the accounting acquirer, recording the assets acquired and liabilities and noncontrolling interests assumed of J. Alexander's at fair value as of the acquisition date. Given 99 Restaurants' continuing consolidation within Splitco's consolidated financial statements, 99 Restaurants' assets and liabilities will remain at the same carrying value prior to and after the 99 Merger.

        While we expect to control the voting shares and consolidate the results of J. Alexander's based on the voting interest model of ASC 810-10, Splitco will own approximately 34.1% of the economic interests of J. Alexander's after taking into effect the minority interest holders of FNH which will ultimately be issued a majority of the Class B Common Stock and Class B Units by J. Alexander's and JAX Op, respectively.

        The total value of the consideration of $199.0 million was based on valuations of 99 Restaurants and negotiations between J. Alexander's, FNH and FNFV LLC and is representative of the fair value of 99 Restaurants. FNF's management also had access to the financial analyses provided to the Board of Directors of J. Alexander's by a third party in connection with the transaction, which included a selected public companies analysis, a selected comparable transaction analysis, and a discounted cash flow analysis. Based on both management's internal valuations of 99 Restaurants and the third-party evaluation, the total value of the consideration of $199.0 million, consisting of $179.0 million of equity and $20.0 million of debt, represents our best estimate of the fair value of the consideration which will be transferred and is subject to adjustments upon consummation of the 99 Merger.

        The $11 per share value was determined through the aforementioned negotiations between the participants and reflected a premium of 9% to the closing price of J. Alexander's Class A Common Stock of $10.10 as of the date the definitive agreement was executed. Subsequent to the date we announced the 99 Merger the trading value of J. Alexander's Class A Common Stock has moved closer to the $11 per share value derived through the negotiations which we believe is an indication of the validity of our estimated per share value. The implied total value of $199 million consisting of the equity issued and debt assumed by J. Alexander's is consistent with management's internal valuations of the 99 Restaurants business. Given the subsequent movement in the share price of J. Alexander's Class A Common Stock and our preliminary valuations of 99 Restaurants, $199 million and $11 per share of J. Alexander's Class B Common Stock to be issued is our best estimate of the fair value of both the consideration transferred and the resulting noncontrolling interest assumed. With the information currently available, the pro-forma presentation below reflects these related estimates of fair value, which will be adjusted with the consummation of the transaction.

        The following tables present information about Splitco's financial condition and results of operations, after giving effect to the 99 Merger. The information under "Summarized Pro Forma Balance Sheet Data" in the table below assumes the 99 Merger was completed on June 30, 2017.

Represents adjustments to reflect the consolidation of the assets and liabilities of J. Alexander's resulting from the 99 Merger. The net decrease to cash reflects an increase for the recognition of J. Alexander's cash on hand of $6.8 million and a decrease of $40.0 million for the debt paid as part of the transaction. The net decrease to notes payable, long term of $26.8 million includes an increase for the recognition of J. Alexander's outstanding long term debt of $13.2 million offset by a decrease of $40.0 million to reflect the debt paid as part of the merger. The increase to other intangible assets, net includes the historical assets of J. Alexander's of $25.9 million and adjustments of $35.6 million reflecting the estimated purchase price allocation to identifiable intangible assets. The increase to goodwill includes the historical assets of J. Alexander's of $15.7 million and adjustments of $34.0 million reflecting the estimated allocation of the excess purchase price over identifiable assets. All other adjustments reflect the recognition of the assets and liabilities of J. Alexander's.

Noncontrolling interest assumed in the 99 Merger will be recorded based on the acquisition date fair value of the interest in J. Alexander's held by minority holders. We expect to record noncontrolling interest related to the 99 Merger for the following: (a) the noncontrolling interest associated with Splitco's expected 52.5% consolidated ownership of J. Alexander's, (b) the noncontrolling interest associated with the portion of Splitco's expected ownership of J. Alexander's through its non-wholly owned subsidiary FNH, and (c) the noncontrolling interest associated with the overall reduction in Splitco's consolidated ownership of 99 Restaurants due to its contribution to J. Alexander's. Noncontrolling interest for each portion outlined above has been estimated as follows: (a) $76.7 million, calculated as the total fair value of J. Alexander's of $161.6 million multiplied by the percentage of equity held by noncontrolling interests of 47.5%, (b) $29.7 million, calculated as the total fair value of J. Alexander's of $161.6 million multiplied by the percentage of equity held by FNH's minority interest holders of 18.4%, and (c) 10.8 million, calculated as the estimated difference in noncontrolling interest due to Splitco's reduction in ownership of 99 Restaurants as a result of the transaction. The total amount of $117.2 million included in the pro forma financial statements is considered preliminary and subject to change.

In accordance with applicable accounting literature, we expect to record the acquired assets and assumed liabilities of J. Alexander's based on their acquisition date fair values. The preliminary fair value of acquired intangibles assets, which is comprised of the tradenames of the J. Alexander's and Stoney River brands, was estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis and a weighted average useful life of 20 years. The fair value of current assets and current liabilities has been estimated using their current carrying value. All remaining assets and liabilities have been preliminarily presented in our pro forma financial statements at their current carrying values, however fair value approaches commonly used in accounting for business combinations will ultimately be utilized to determine the fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired at the acquisition date. Goodwill has been estimated as the purchase price over the estimated fair value of net identifiable assets. Refer to Note 2 to these pro forma financial statements for further discussion of the fair value of the noncontrolling interest assumed. All amounts are considered preliminary and are subject to change based on the estimated fair value on the acquisition date and our continued analysis after the consummation of the transaction. The following table summarizes the total purchase price consideration and the preliminary fair value amounts expected to be recognized for the assets acquired and liabilities assumed (in millions):
