On 18 November 2020, it was announced that Tryg A/S ("Tryg" or the "Company") and Intact Financial Corporation ("Intact") have made a recommended cash offer jointly through Regent Bidco Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intact) ("Bidco") pursuant to which Bidco will acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of RSA Insurance Group plc ("RSA") (the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition will be effected by means of a Court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the UK Companies Act 2006 (the "Scheme"). The circular in relation to the Scheme (the "Scheme Document") was published and posted to RSA Shareholders on 16 December 2020.

The Acquisition is subject to the conditions set out in Part III of the Scheme Document, including the receipt of certain anti-trust and regulatory approvals. RSA has today announced, on behalf of Tryg, Intact and RSA, that all of the conditions relating to anti-trust and regulatory approvals under the Scheme Document have now been satisfied or (where capable of waiver) waived (the "RSA Announcement"). In particular, Intact has now received unconditional approval from the UK Prudential Regulation Authority and the UK Financial Conduct Authority in respect of the change in control of Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc, Royal & Sun Alliance Reinsurance Limited and The Marine Insurance Company Limited and from the UK Financial Conduct Authority in respect of the change in control of RSA Northern Ireland Insurance Limited.

The Scheme is expected to become effective on 1 June 2021 following the satisfaction of certain other conditions, including the re-registration of RSA as a private limited company and the completion of the Scheme Court Hearing procedure, which is expected to take place on 25 May 2021.

Defined terms used in this announcement shall, unless otherwise defined herein, have the same meanings as set out in RSA Announcement.
