Section 1 — Registrant’s Business and Operations

 

Item 1.01.              Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On September 19, 2011, Selective Insurance Group, Inc. (“Selective”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Montpelier Re U.S. Holdings Ltd. (“Montpelier”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Montpelier Re Holdings Ltd. (“Montpelier Re”).  Under the terms of the Agreement, Selective agreed to acquire from Montpelier all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Montpelier U.S. Insurance Company, an excess and surplus lines insurance company (“MUSIC”) and, along with certain of their respective affiliates, enter into certain ancillary agreements (the “Transaction”).

 

The Transaction, which is expected to close in late 2011 (the “Closing”), is subject to applicable regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, including execution and delivery of related transaction documents and the receipt of third party contractual consents.  Pursuant to the Agreement, and based on MUSIC’s net asset value at June 30, 2011, the Transaction is valued at approximately $55 million, which includes tax benefit carry-forwards of approximately $3 million.

 

Upon Closing, Montpelier Reinsurance Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Montpelier Re, and MUSIC will enter into several reinsurance agreements that will indemnify Selective for any adverse loss development and any other obligations of MUSIC that relate to business written prior to the date of the Closing.  The reinsurance obligations of Montpelier Reinsurance Ltd. will be collateralized through a trust arrangement.

 

The Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.  The foregoing description of the material terms of the Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to that exhibit.
