Aspen Prices Public Offering Of $150 Million Of Perpetual Non-Cumulative Preference Shares

Stocks in this article: AHL

Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited (“Aspen”) (NYSE:AHL) has priced an underwritten public offering of 6,000,000 shares of 7.25% of Perpetual Non-Cumulative Preference Shares (the “Preference Shares”).

The Preference Shares have a liquidation preference of $25 per share (or $150,000,000 in aggregate liquidation preference). The underwriters have the option to purchase from Aspen up to an additional 900,000 Preference Shares (or $22,500,000 in aggregate liquidation preference).

The offering was made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement and is expected to close on April 11, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions. Aspen intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including supporting its insurance and reinsurance activities through its operating subsidiaries as well as repurchasing its outstanding ordinary shares as determined from time to time.

The Preference Shares rank equally with preference shares previously issued by Aspen, and have no fixed maturity date. Aspen may redeem all or a portion of the shares at a redemption price of $25 per share on or after July 1, 2017. Aspen intends to list the Preference Shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “AHLPRB”.

The offering was led by Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Barclays Capital Inc., UBS Securities LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC as joint book-running managers.
