CHICAGO, June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Old Republic International Corporation (NYSE: ORI) today reported that it has withdrawn the previously announced spin-off of its Republic Financial Indemnity Group, Inc. ("RFIG") subsidiary stock to ORI shareholders. Concurrently the financial effect of the partial RFIG leveraged buy-out has been reversed.
These decisions respond to objections raised by certain stakeholders that RFIG's separation from Old Republic would be disadvantageous to their interests and expectations.
As a result of these decisions the RFIG registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the spin-off has now been withdrawn.
