To the best of the Directors' knowledge, information and belief, having made all reasonable enquiry, Ironshore and its ultimate beneficial owners are third parties independent of the Company and connected persons of the Company, and are not themselves connected persons of the Company.

Subject Shares:

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Equity Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser agreed to purchase and Ironshore agreed to issue and sell to the Purchaser, its class A ordinary shares, par value USD0.01 per share, representing 20% of the total outstanding ordinary shares of Ironshore, on a Fully Diluted Basis, as of the Closing and after giving effect to the

The Purchase Price shall be USD463,831,645, plus (or minus) 1.246 times

30 June 2014 through the end of the fiscal quarter immediately preceding the Closing, which in any event shall not exceed USD477,887,150 or be less than USD456,803,893. The Purchase Price will be paid upon Closing, which shall be satisfied by a combination of the Company's own fund and external financing.
The Purchase Price was determined at arm's length negotiations between the Purchaser and Ironshore and calculated by multiplying USD16.50 by

REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE ACQUISITION

The Group has been endeavouring determined efforts in establishing insurance as its core business and developing insurance as one of the key growth engines of the Group. The Group regards the development of the insurance business as a premium path in connecting the Group's investment capability to long-term high-quality capital. The Acquisition will further expand the Group's insurance business and strengthen the Group's capability to access long-term high-quality capital.
The parties will explore areas of cooperation and collaboration that may provide mutual benefits by leveraging respective areas of management expertise, geographic reach, industry relationships and operating capabilities, thereby enhancing the global strength of both parties.
The Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) are of the view that the Acquisition is in the ordinary and usual course of business of the Group, and that the terms of the Equity Purchase Agreement are on normal commercial terms, fair and reasonable and in the interest of the Company and its shareholders as a whole.

LISTING RULES IMPLICATIONS

As one of the applicable percentage ratios (as defined under Rule 14.04(9) of the Listing Rules) in relation to the Acquisition exceeds 5% and is less than 25%, the Acquisition constitutes a discloseable transaction for the Company under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules and is subject to notification and announcement requirements under the Listing Rules.
