Third Point Reinsurance Ltd will hold a special general meeting of shareholders to allow them to vote on matters in connection with its announced merger with Sirius International Group Ltd.

The merger is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, subject to approval by Third Point Re shareholders and Sirius Group shareholders and customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

The meeting will be held at Point House, on Waterloo Lane, Pembroke on November 23. Due to Covid-19 health and safety implications, the reinsurer strongly encourages shareholders to vote by proxy prior to the special meeting.

Among matters to be considered is the issuance of Third Point Re common shares to shareholders of Sirius Group.

Third Point Re shareholders of record, as of the close of business on October 1, will be entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the meeting.

The company is encouraging shareholders to read the joint proxy statement/prospectus, which includes the reasons for the Board's unanimous recommendation that shareholders vote "for" the issuance of Third Point Re common shares and other proposals.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
