Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 26, 2021 (the “Effective Time”), pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Third Point Reinsurance Ltd. (“TPRE”), a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares, Sirius International Insurance Group, Ltd. (“Sirius”), a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares, and Yoga Merger Sub Limited (“Merger Sub”), a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares and wholly owned subsidiary of TPRE, Merger Sub was merged with and into Sirius (the “Merger”), with Sirius continuing as the surviving company in the Merger, as a wholly owned subsidiary of TPRE. TPRE was renamed SiriusPoint Ltd. following the Merger and is continuing as the parent company (the “Company” or “SiriusPoint”). SiriusPoint trades on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the ticker symbol “SPNT”.
At the Effective Time, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each common share, par value $0.01 per share, of Sirius (each, a “Sirius Share”) that was issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time was canceled and converted into the right to receive one of the following three consideration options at the shareholder’s election:
$9.50 in cash;
a combination of common shares, par value $0.10 per share, of the Company (“Company Shares”), and CVR consideration (a “Share & CVR Election”) comprising (1) 0.743 of a Company Share and (2) one contractual contingent value right (each, a “CVR”), which represents the right to receive a contingent cash payment, which, taken together with the fraction of the Company Share received, guarantee that on the second anniversary of the Effective Time, the electing shareholder will have received equity and cash valued at least $13.73 per Sirius Share (together, the “Share & CVR Consideration”); or
a combination of cash, Company Shares, Series A Preference Shares, Warrants and Upside Rights (a “Mixed Election”) comprising (1) $0.905 in cash, (2) 0.496 Company Shares, (3) 0.106 Series A preference shares, par value $0.10 per share, of the Company (the “Series A Preference Shares”), (4) 0.190 of a warrant (each, a “Warrant”) and (5) $0.905 aggregate principal amount of an “upside right” issued by the Company (collectively, the “Upside Rights”).
Based on the preliminary report provided at the Effective Time by the election and exchange agent retained by the Company in connection with the Merger, the election results with respect to the merger consideration were as follows:
Holders of approximately 32,257 Sirius Shares outstanding (or approximately 0.03%) immediately prior to the Effective Time elected to receive cash.
Holders of approximately 4,691,699 Sirius Shares outstanding (or approximately 4.07%) immediately prior to the Effective Time made the Share & CVR Election or did not make an election and received the Share & CVR Consideration.
Holders of approximately 110,575,385 Sirius Shares outstanding (or approximately 95.9%) immediately prior to the Effective Time made the Mixed Election.

Each Series A Preference Share has voting power equal to the number of Company Shares into which it is convertible, and the Series A Preference Shares and Company Shares shall vote together as a single class with respect to any and all matters. Upon the third anniversary of the Effective Time, as described in the Series A Certificate of Designation and pursuant to the analysis of an independent actuarial team, the Company will calculate the total amount of TPRE’s COVID-19 losses in excess of $51.1 million (the “TPRE Net COVID Loss”) and the total amount of Sirius’s COVID-19 losses in excess of $150 million (the “Sirius Net COVID Loss”). If TPRE’s COVID-19 losses are less than or equal to $51.1 million, the TPRE Net COVID Loss will equal $0, and if Sirius’ COVID-19 losses are less than or equal to $150 million, the Sirius Net COVID Loss will equal $0. Should the Sirius Net COVID Loss be greater than the TPRE Net COVID Loss, then a number of Series A Preference Shares will be forfeited equal to (x) the lesser of (i) the Sirius Net COVID Loss minus the TPRE Net COVID Loss and (ii) $100 million divided by (y) the VWAP measured over the thirty business day (where normal trading occurs on U.S. national and regional exchanges) (“Trading Day”) period prior to the date five business days after the calculation of the TPRE Net COVID Loss and Sirius Net COVID Loss (the “Final Adjustment Determination Date”). Should the TPRE Net COVID Loss be greater than the Sirius Net COVID Loss, then a number of Series A Preference Shares will be issued equal to (x) the TPRE Net COVID Loss minus the Sirius Net COVID Loss divided by (y) the 30-Trading Day VWAP during the period prior to the Final Adjustment Determination Date. After either such adjustment occurs, the Series A Preference Shares will convert into Common Shares based on the conversion ratio of one Series A Preference Share to one Company Share, subject to the adjustment as set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation.
The foregoing description of the terms of the Series A Preference Shares does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Series A Certificate of Designation, which is filed as Exhibit 3.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated by reference herein.
