Omega Insurance Holdings Limited ("Omega" or the "Company")
Further Re Recommended Cash Acquisition
Omega announces that in connection with the recommended cash acquisition (the "Acquisition") by Canopius Group Limited ("Canopius") the Company has been served with an originating summons by Mr. John Robinson, who holds 18,089,286 Omega common shares, instituting proceedings under the Bermuda Companies Act for the Supreme Court to appraise the fair value of his shares relative to the 67p price payable pursuant to the Acquisition. The Company will defend the proceedings. This is the sole claim that has been made within the requisite one-month period.
This action will not affect the timetable for completion of the Acquisition, which was approved by holders of 90.3% of Omega's common shares voted at the special general meeting and is expected to complete once the remaining regulatory conditions have been satisfied.
