CATCo investors vote “overwhelmingly” in favour of buyout

Financiers in the Markel CATCo retrocessional reinsurance financial investment funds have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the proposed and upgraded buyout terms, putting the procedure on course for a resolution and completion by the end of the month.Scheme Meetings, in respect of the Schemes of Arrangement of the buy-out offer, were held at which investors holding shares in the CATCo Reinsurance Opportunities Fund Ltd., the noted, retrocession focused insurance-linked securities (ILS) fund method handled by Markel CATCo Investment Management, and the private CATCo retro ILS funds voted once again.
CATCo stated “financiers in all classes voted extremely in favour of the Buy-Out Transaction.”
The Chairman of the noted fund said that a preliminary count of the votes at each meeting indicated that the resolutions to authorize the Schemes had passed.
Shares from the general public fund are being launched from escrow and investors can expect their 2% Early Consent Fee perks once the buyout transaction is finished.
A Bermuda Court hearing will seek sanction approval for the schemes on March 11th after which the only remaining hurdle is the US bankruptcy court support, which is also being sought.
” Subject to those orders being given, the Funds are intending for the conclusion date of the Schemes to happen in late March 2022,” Markel CATCo stated.
Distributions to investors will occur as quickly as possible after the deal completion date.
With investor support secured, Markel can now look towards the last buying out of investors stakes in the CATCo retro reinsurance mutual fund, which it is funding.

It indicates they no longer have the hazard of financier legal action and can proceed to run the funds off in private, while not having to report to the stock exchange for the public fund any more.
That will imply CATCo totally drops out of sight and the saga will end, any additional legal process in the states aside.
Some financiers have done extremely well out of the entire process, especially if you purchased into the public fund at the most affordable NAVs, on which you might now be making a tidy earnings at the buyout terms.
