In response to the exchange offer commenced by Validus, Transatlantic has filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with the SEC.   Investors and security holders are urged to read the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 because it contains important information about the Validus exchange offer. All documents, when filed, will be available free of charge at the SEC's website ( www.sec.gov). You may also obtain these documents by contacting Transatlantic's Investor Relations department at Transatlantic Holdings, Inc., 80 Pine Street, New York, New York 10005, or via e-mail at investor_relations@transre.com.

Additional Information about the Validus Consent Solicitation

On September 14, 2011, Validus filed a preliminary consent solicitation statement with the SEC relating to Validus' proposals to, among other things, remove all of Transatlantic's directors and nominate three new directors to the Transatlantic board of directors. Transatlantic has filed with the SEC a preliminary consent revocation statement on Schedule 14A (the "Preliminary Revocation Statement") in connection with Validus' solicitation of written consents. Investors and security holders are urged to read the Preliminary Revocation Statement and Transatlantic's definitive consent revocation statement, when it is available, because they contain important information. Investors can get the Preliminary Revocation Statement, the definitive revocation statement, when it is available, and any other relevant documents for free at the SEC's website ( www.sec.gov).
