Given that Transatlantic and Allied World have now mutually terminated their merger agreement, I am pleased to reinstate our proposal for National Indemnity Company to acquire all the outstanding shares of Transatlantic for a cash price of $52.00 a share. This offer is not subject to any financing contingencies or due diligence requirements.We have as you know reviewed the Allied World merger agreement, and we propose to essentially follow the terms and conditions of that agreement, including the terms and conditions of the break-up fee payable to us under various scenarios. We will obviously have to modify the Allied World agreement in light of the cash nature of our proposal, and otherwise make sensible revisions, such as pushing back the deadlines by 90 days, etc. In short, however, I am confident the Allied World merger agreement can quickly be revised into a merger agreement that would reflect our agreed terms.
