SHARES 2. Power to Issue Shares 2.1 Subject to these Bye-laws and to any resolution of the Members to the contrary, and without prejudice to any special rights previously conferred on the holders of any existing shares or class of shares, the Board shall have the power to issue any unissued shares on such terms and conditions as it may determine and any shares or class of shares may be issued with such preferred, deferred or other special rights or such restrictions, whether in regard to dividend, voting, return of capital, or otherwise as the Board may prescribe. 2.2 Subject to the Act, any preference shares may be issued or converted into shares that (at a determinable date or at the option of the Company or the holder) are liable to be redeemed on such terms and in such manner as may be determined by the Board (before the issue or conversion). 3. Power and Obligation of the Company to Purchase its Shares 3.1 The Company may purchase its own shares for cancellation or acquire them as Treasury Shares in accordance with the Act on such terms as the Board shall think fit. 3.2 The Board may exercise all the powers of the Company to purchase or acquire all or any part of its own shares in accordance with the Act. 3.3 Subject to the Act, if the Board in its sole discretion determines that ownership of shares of the Company by any Person may result in adverse tax consequences or materially adverse legal or regulatory treatment to the Company, any Subsidiary of the Company or any other Person (including if such consequence arises as a result of any U.S. Person owning Controlled Shares of 9.5% or more of the value of the Company or the voting shares of the Company after giving effect to any adjustment to voting power required by Bye-law 5), the Company will have the option, but not the obligation, to purchase all or part of the shares of the Company held by such Person to the extent the Board, in the reasonable exercise of its discretion, determines it is necessary to avoid or cure such adverse consequences) for immediately available funds in an amount equal to the Fair Market Value of such shares on the business day immediately prior to the date the


 

6 1006141665v12 Company sends the Repurchase Notice referred to below (the “Repurchase Price”); provided, that the Board will use reasonable efforts to exercise this option equally among similarly situated Persons (to the extent possible under the circumstances). In the event that the Company determines to purchase any such shares, the Company will be entitled to assign its purchase right to a third party or parties, including one or more of the other Persons, with the consent of such assignee. Each Person shall be bound by the determination by the Company to purchase or assign its right to purchase such Person’s shares and, if so required by the Company, shall sell the number of shares of the Company that the Company requires it to sell. 3.4 In the event that the Company or its assignee(s) determines to purchase any such shares, the Company shall provide each Member concerned with written notice of such determination (a “Repurchase Notice”) at least seven (7) calendar days prior to such purchase or such shorter period as each such Member may authorise, specifying the date on which any such shares are to be purchased and the Repurchase Price. The Company may revoke the Repurchase Notice at any time before it (or its assignee(s)) pays for the shares. Neither the Company nor its assignee(s) shall be obligated to give general notice to any Person of any intention to purchase or the conclusion of any purchase of shares of the Company. The closing of any such purchase of shares of the Company shall occur not less than seven (7) calendar days after receipt of the Repurchase Notice by the Member, unless such Member agrees to a shorter period, and payment of the Repurchase Price by the Company or its assignee(s) shall be by wire transfer or certified check. 3.5 If the Company purchases any shares pursuant to Bye-laws 3.3 and 3.4, it shall do so only in a manner that the Board believes would not result, upon consummation of such transaction, in any U.S. Person owning Controlled Shares of 9.5% or more of the value of the Company or the voting shares of the Company (after giving effect to any adjustment to voting power required by Bye-law 5). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board, in its sole discretion and by unanimous consent of all of the Directors then in office, may waive the provisions of Bye-laws 3.3 and 3.4. 4. Rights Attaching to Shares 4.1 At the date these Bye-laws are adopted, the share capital of the Company is divided into two classes: (i) common shares (the “Common Shares”) and (ii) preference shares (the “Preference Shares”). 4.2 The holders of the Common Shares shall, subject to these Bye-laws (including, without limitation, the rights attaching to Preference Shares): (a) be entitled to one vote per share; (b) be entitled to such dividends as the Board may from time to time declare; (c) in the event of a winding-up or dissolution of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary or for the purpose of a reorganisation or otherwise or upon any distribution of capital, be entitled to the surplus assets of the Company; and


 

7 1006141665v12 (d) generally be entitled to enjoy all of the rights attaching to shares. 4.3 The Board is authorised to provide for the issuance of the Preference Shares in one or more series, and to establish from time to time the number of shares to be included in each such series, and to establish from time to time the number of shares to be included in each series, and to fix the terms, including designation, powers, preferences, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions of the shares of each such series (and, for the avoidance of doubt, such matters and the issuance of such Preference Shares shall not be deemed to vary the rights attached to the Common Shares or, subject to the terms of any other series of Preference Shares, to vary the rights attached to any other series of Preference Shares). The authority of the Board with respect to each series shall include, but not be limited to, determination of the following: (a) the number of shares constituting that series and the distinctive designation of that series; (b) the dividend rate on the shares of that series, whether dividends shall be cumulative and, if so, from which date or dates, and the relative rights of priority, if any, of the payment of dividends on shares of that series; (c) whether the series shall have voting rights, in addition to the voting rights provided by law and, if so, the terms of such voting rights; (d) whether the series shall have conversion or exchange privileges (including, without limitation, conversion into Common Shares) and, if so, the terms and conditions of such conversion or exchange, including provision for adjustment of the conversion or exchange rate in such events as the Board shall determine; (e) whether or not the shares of that series shall be redeemable or repurchaseable and, if so, the terms and conditions of such redemption or repurchase, including the manner of selecting shares for redemption or repurchase if less than all shares are to be redeemed or repurchased, the date or dates upon or after which they shall be redeemable or repurchaseable, and the amount per share payable in case of redemption or repurchase, which amount may vary under different conditions and at different redemption or repurchase dates; (f) whether that series shall have a sinking fund for the redemption or repurchase of shares of that series and, if so, the terms and amount of such sinking fund; (g) the right of the shares of that series to the benefit of conditions and restrictions upon the creation of indebtedness of the Company or any Subsidiary, upon the issue of any additional shares (including additional shares of such series or any other series) and upon the payment of dividends or the making of other distributions on, and the purchase, redemption or other acquisition by the Company or any Subsidiary of any issued shares of the Company;


 

8 1006141665v12 (h) the rights of the shares of that series in the event of voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, and the relative rights of priority, if any, of payment in respect of shares of that series; and (i) any other relative participating, optional or other special rights, qualifications, limitations or restrictions of that series. 4.4 Any Preference Shares of any series which have been redeemed (whether through the operation of a sinking fund or otherwise) or which, if convertible or exchangeable, have been converted into or exchanged for shares of any other class or classes shall have the status of authorised and unissued Preference Shares of the same series and may be reissued as a part of the series of which they were originally a part or may be reclassified and reissued as part of a new series of Preference Shares to be created by resolution or resolutions of the Board or as part of any other series of Preference Shares, all subject to the conditions and the restrictions on issuance set forth in the resolution or resolutions adopted by the Board providing for the issue of any series of Preference Shares. 4.5 At the discretion of the Board, whether or not in connection with the issuance and sale of any shares or other securities of the Company, the Company may issue securities, contracts, warrants or other instruments evidencing any shares, option rights, securities having conversion or option rights, or obligations on such terms, conditions and other provisions as are fixed by the Board including, without limiting the generality of this authority, conditions that preclude or limit any person or persons owning or offering to acquire a specified number or percentage of the issued Common Shares, other shares, option rights, securities having conversion or option rights, or obligations of the Company or transferee of the person or persons from exercising, converting, transferring or receiving the shares, option rights, securities having conversion or option rights, or obligations. 4.6 All the rights attaching to a Treasury Share shall be suspended and shall not be exercised by the Company while it holds such Treasury Share and, except where required by the Act, all Treasury Shares shall be excluded from the calculation of any percentage or fraction of the share capital, or shares, of the Company. 5. Adjustment to Voting Power 5.1 If the votes conferred by the Controlled Shares of any Person would otherwise cause such Person or any other Person to be treated as a 9.5% Shareholder with respect to any matter (including, without limitation, election of directors), the votes with respect to such matter conferred by the shares of such Person’s Controlled Group are hereby reduced (and shall be automatically reduced in the future) by whatever amount is necessary so that, after any such reduction, the votes conferred by the Controlled Shares of such Person shall not result in such Person or any other Person being treated as a 9.5% Shareholder with respect to the vote on such matter. 5.2 The reduction in votes pursuant to the preceding Bye-law shall be determined as follows:


 

9 1006141665v12 (a) Beginning with the Controlled Group of the Person whose Controlled Shares have the largest number of votes and continuing, as required, with the Controlled Group of each Person whose Controlled Shares successively have a smaller number of votes (after giving effect to prior reductions), the reduction in votes conferred by the shares of a Controlled Group shall be effected proportionately among all the shares of such Controlled Group in accordance with the relative voting power of such shares. Generally, the Board will effectuate the reduction of votes in the manner and order described in the preceding sentence. If varying the order in which votes are reduced would result in a more equitable allocation of the reduction of votes as determined by the Board, the Board shall have the discretion to vary the order in which votes are reduced. (b) If there is a Person whose activities have been determined by the Board to have caused the application of subparagraph (a), after all required reductions in votes conferred on shares of Controlled Groups are effected pursuant to subparagraph (a), (i) the amount of any reduction in the votes of the shares of each Controlled Group effected by application of subparagraph (a) above shall be reallocated within such Controlled Group and conferred on the shares held directly by the Person whose actions have been determined by the Board to have caused the application of such subparagraph and (ii) the voting power of the shares held by each other Person holding shares in such Controlled Group shall be increased by such Person’s proportionate share of such reduction, in each case, to the extent that so doing does not cause any Person to be treated as a 9.5% Shareholder. 5.3 The Board shall implement the foregoing in the manner set forth in this Bye-law 5. In addition to any other provision of this Bye-law 5, any shares shall not carry rights to vote or shall have reduced voting rights to the extent that the Board reasonably determines, by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Directors, that it is reasonably necessary that such shares should not carry the right to vote or shall have reduced voting rights in order to avoid adverse tax consequences or materially adverse legal or regulatory treatment to the Company, any Subsidiary of the Company or any Person or its Affiliates; provided that the Board will use reasonable efforts to ensure equal treatment to similarly situated Persons to the extent possible under the circumstances and; provided further that the Board shall reallocate the amount of any reduction in vote in the manner described in Bye-law 5.2(b). 5.4 The Board shall have the authority to request from any Member such information as the Board may reasonably request for the purpose of determining whether any Member’s voting rights are to be adjusted. If any Member fails to respond to such a request, or submits incomplete or inaccurate information in response to such a request, the Board may in its sole discretion determine that such Member’s shares shall carry no voting rights, in which case such shares shall not carry any voting rights until otherwise determined by the Board in its absolute discretion. Any Member shall give notice to the Company within ten days following the date that such Member acquires actual knowledge that it or, to the extent practicable, any Person who is a deemed or constructive owner of such Member’s Controlled Shares, is the


 

10 1006141665v12 actual, deemed or constructive owner of Controlled Shares of 9.5% or more of the Company. The determination by the Board, taking into account any written advice of outside legal counsel which the Board determines to obtain, as to any adjustments to voting power of any share made pursuant to this Bye-law 5 shall be final and binding on all Persons. 5.5 If the aggregate votes conferred by the Shares beneficially owned by the Investor, its Affiliates and its Related Persons (together, the “Investor Affiliated Group”) would cause the Investor Affiliated Group to be treated as a 9.9% Shareholder with respect to any matter at a general meeting of shareholders of the Company (including, without limitation, with respect to the election of directors), the votes with respect to such matter conferred by the Shares of the Investor Affiliated Group shall be reduced by whatever amount is necessary so that, after any such reduction and giving effect to reallocation of voting power to other holders of Shares, the votes conferred by the Shares beneficially owned by the Investor Affiliated Group shall be equal to (and not less than) 9.9% of the total outstanding vote of the Shares with respect to such matter. Such cutback shall be determined on a meeting by meeting basis. For the purposes of this Bye-law 5.5 only, “Affiliate”, “beneficially owned” and “Related Persons” shall have the respective meanings ascribed thereto in the Investor Rights Agreement. A reduction in votes pursuant to this Bye-law 5.5 shall be determined as follows: beginning with the Controlled Group of the Person whose Controlled Shares have the largest number of votes and continuing, as required, with the Controlled Group of each Person whose Controlled Shares successively have a smaller number of votes (after giving effect to prior reductions), the reduction in votes conferred by the shares of a Controlled Group shall be effected proportionately among all the shares of such Controlled Group in accordance with the relative voting power of such shares. Generally, the Board will effectuate the reduction of votes in the manner and order described in the preceding sentence. For the avoidance of doubt, such reduction shall be applied in such a manner as will not cause any other Person to be treated as a 9.5% Shareholder. 6. Certain Subsidiaries 6.1 Notwithstanding any other provision of these Bye-laws to the contrary, if the Company is required or entitled to vote at a general meeting of any subsidiary of the Company that is designated by the Board as subject to this Bye-Law, is not a corporation organized under the laws of the United States or any state (or limited liability company organized under the laws of the United States or any state that is taxable as a corporation for United States Federal income tax purposes) and is not treated as a pass-through vehicle or disregarded entity for United States federal income tax purposes (unless such disregarded entity owns, directly or indirectly, any subsidiary organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States that is treated as a corporation for United States federal income tax purposes) (together, the “Designated Companies”), the Board shall refer the subject matter of the vote (other than the removal and remuneration of auditors, the approval of financial statements and reports thereon, and the remuneration of Directors) to the Members of the Company on a poll (subject to Bye-law 5) and seek authority from the Members for the Company’s corporate representative or proxy to vote in favour of the


 

11 1006141665v12 resolution proposed by the Designated Company. The Board shall cause the Company’s corporate representative or proxy to vote the Company’s shares in the Designated Company pro rata to the votes received at the general meeting of the Company, with votes for or against the directing resolution being taken, respectively, as an instruction for the Company’s corporate representative or proxy to vote the appropriate proportion of its shares for and the appropriate proportion of its shares against the resolution proposed by the Designated Company. The Board shall have authority to resolve any ambiguity. 6.2 The Board in its discretion shall require that the Bye-laws or Articles of Association or similar organizational documents of each Designated Company shall contain provisions substantially similar to this Bye-law 6. The Company shall enter into agreements, as and when determined by the Board, with each such Designated Company, only if and to the extent reasonably necessary and permitted under applicable law, to effectuate or implement this Bye-law 6. 7. [Intentionally Omitted] 8. Calls on Shares 8.1 The Board may make such calls as it thinks fit upon the Members in respect of any moneys (whether in respect of nominal value or premium) unpaid on the shares allotted to or held by such Members (and not made payable at fixed times by the terms and conditions of issue) and, if a call is not paid on or before the day appointed for payment thereof, the Member may at the discretion of the Board be liable to pay the Company interest on the amount of such call at such rate as the Board may determine, from the date when such call was payable up to the actual date of payment. The Board may differentiate between the holders as to the amount of calls to be paid and the times of payment of such calls. 8.2 Any amount which, by the terms of allotment of a share, becomes payable upon issue or at any fixed date, whether on account of the nominal value of the share or by way of premium, shall for the purposes of these Bye-laws be deemed to be an amount on which a call has been duly made and payable on the date on which, by the terms of issue, the same becomes payable, and in case of non-payment all the relevant provisions of these Bye-laws as to payment of interest, costs and expenses, forfeiture or otherwise shall apply as if such amount had become payable by virtue of a duly made and notified call. 8.3 The joint holders of a share shall be jointly and severally liable to pay all calls and any interest, costs and expenses in respect thereof. 8.4 The Company may accept from any Member the whole or a part of the amount remaining unpaid on any shares held by him, although no part of that amount has been called up or become payable.


 

12 1006141665v12 9. Forfeiture of Shares 9.1 If any Member fails to pay, on the day appointed for payment thereof, any call pursuant to Bye-law 8 in respect of any share allotted to or held by such Member, the Board may, at any time thereafter during such time as the call remains unpaid, direct the Secretary to forward such Member a notice in writing in the form, or as near thereto as circumstances admit, of the following: Notice of Liability to Forfeiture for Non-Payment of Call SiriusPoint Ltd. (the “Company”) You have failed to pay the call of [amount of call] made on the [date], in respect of the [number] share(s) [number in figures] standing in your name in the Register of Members of the Company, on the [date], the day appointed for payment of such call. You are hereby notified that unless you pay such call together with interest thereon at the rate of [●] per annum computed from the said [date] at the registered office of the Company the share(s) will be liable to be forfeited. Dated this [date] [Signature of Secretary] By Order of the Board 9.2 If the requirements of such notice are not complied with, any such share may at any time thereafter before the payment of such call and the interest due in respect thereof be forfeited by a resolution of the Board to that effect, and such share shall thereupon become the property of the Company and may be disposed of as the Board shall determine. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the disposal may take place by sale, repurchase, redemption or any other method of disposal permitted by and consistent with these Bye-laws and the Act. 9.3 A Member whose share or shares have been so forfeited shall, notwithstanding such forfeiture, be liable to pay to the Company all calls owing on such share or shares at the time of the forfeiture, together with all interest due thereon and any costs and expenses incurred by the Company in connection therewith. 9.4 The Board may accept the surrender of any shares which it is in a position to forfeit on such terms and conditions as may be agreed. Subject to those terms and conditions, a surrendered share shall be treated as if it had been forfeited. 10. Share Certificates 10.1 Every Member shall be entitled to a certificate under the common seal (or a facsimile thereof) of the Company or bearing the signature (or a facsimile thereof) of a Director or the Secretary or a person expressly authorised to sign specifying the number and, where appropriate, the class of shares held by such Member and whether the same are fully paid up and, if not, specifying the amount paid on such shares. The Board may by resolution determine, either generally or in a particular case, that any or all signatures on certificates may be printed thereon or affixed by mechanical means.


 

13 1006141665v12 10.2 The Company shall be under no obligation to complete and deliver a share certificate unless specifically called upon to do so by the person to whom the shares have been allotted. 10.3 If any share certificate shall be proved to the satisfaction of the Board to have been worn out, lost, mislaid, or destroyed the Board may cause a new certificate to be issued and request an indemnity for the lost certificate if it sees fit. 10.4 Notwithstanding any provisions of these Bye-laws: (a) the Board shall, subject always to the Act and any other applicable laws and regulations and the facilities and requirements of any relevant system concerned, have power to implement any arrangements it may, in its absolute discretion, think fit in relation to the evidencing of title to and transfer of uncertificated shares and to the extent such arrangements are so implemented, no provision of these Bye-laws shall apply or have effect to the extent that it is in any respect inconsistent with the holding or transfer of shares in uncertificated form; and (b) unless otherwise determined by the Board and as permitted by the Act and any other applicable laws and regulations including applicable rules of the New York Stock Exchange, no person shall be entitled to receive a certificate in respect of any share for so long as the title to that share is evidenced otherwise than by a certificate and for so long as transfers of that share may be made otherwise than by a written instrument. 11. Fractional Shares The Company may issue its shares in fractional denominations and deal with such fractions to the same extent as its whole shares and shares in fractional denominations shall have in proportion to the respective fractions represented thereby all of the rights of whole shares including (but without limiting the generality of the foregoing) the right to vote, to receive dividends and distributions and to participate in a winding-up. REGISTRATION OF SHARES 12. Register of Members 12.1 The Board shall cause to be kept in one or more books a Register of Members and shall enter therein the particulars required by the Act. 12.2 The Register of Members shall be open to inspection without charge at the registered office of the Company on every business day, subject to such reasonable restrictions as the Board may impose, so that not less than two hours in each business day be allowed for inspection. The Register of Members may, after notice has been given in accordance with the Act, be closed for any time or times not exceeding in the whole thirty days in each year.


 

14 1006141665v12 13. Registered Holder Absolute Owner The Company shall be entitled to treat the registered holder of any share as the absolute owner thereof and accordingly shall not be bound to recognise any equitable claim or other claim to, or interest in, such share on the part of any other person. 14. Transfer of Registered Shares 14.1 An instrument of transfer shall be in writing in the form of the following, or as near thereto as circumstances admit, or in such other form as the Board may accept: Transfer of a Share or Shares SiriusPoint Ltd. (the “Company”) FOR VALUE RECEIVED……………….. [amount], I, [name of transferor] hereby sell, assign and transfer unto [transferee] of [address], [number] shares of the Company. DATED this [date] Signed by: In the presence of: ____________________ __________________ Transferor Witness Signed by: In the presence of: ____________________ ________________ Transferee Witness 14.2 Such instrument of transfer shall be signed by (or in the case of a party that is a corporation, on behalf of) the transferor and transferee, provided that, in the case of a fully paid share, the Board may accept the instrument signed by or on behalf of the transferor alone. The transferor shall be deemed to remain the holder of such share until the same has been registered as having been transferred to the transferee in the Register of Members. 14.3 The Board may refuse to recognise any instrument of transfer unless it is accompanied by the certificate in respect of the shares to which it relates and by such other evidence as the Board may reasonably require showing the right of the transferor to make the transfer. 14.4 The joint holders of any share may transfer such share to one or more of such joint holders, and the surviving holder or holders of any share previously held by them jointly with a deceased Member may transfer any such share to the executors or administrators of such deceased Member. 14.5 The Board may in its absolute discretion and without assigning any reason therefore refuse to register the transfer of a share which is not fully paid up. The Board shall refuse to register a transfer unless all applicable consents, authorisations and permissions of any governmental body or agency in Bermuda have been obtained. If the Board refuses to register a transfer of any share the Secretary shall, within three months after the date on


 

15 1006141665v12 which the transfer was lodged with the Company, send to the transferor and transferee notice of the refusal. 14.6 Shares may be transferred without a written instrument if transferred by an appointed agent or otherwise in accordance with the Act. 15. Transmission of Registered Shares 15.1 In the case of the death of a Member, the survivor or survivors where the deceased Member was a joint holder, and the legal personal representatives of the deceased Member where the deceased Member was a sole holder, shall be the only persons recognised by the Company as having any title to the deceased Member’s interest in the shares. Nothing herein contained shall release the estate of a deceased joint holder from any liability in respect of any share which had been jointly held by such deceased Member with other persons. Subject to the Act, for the purpose of this Bye-law, legal personal representative means the executor or administrator of a deceased Member or such other person as the Board may, in its absolute discretion, decide as being properly authorised to deal with the shares of a deceased Member. 15.2 Any person becoming entitled to a share in consequence of the death or bankruptcy of any Member may be registered as a Member upon such evidence as the Board may deem sufficient or may elect to nominate some person to be registered as a transferee of such share, and in such case the person becoming entitled shall execute in favour of such nominee an instrument of transfer in writing in the form, or as near thereto as circumstances admit, of the following: Transfer by a Person Becoming Entitled on Death/Bankruptcy of a Member SiriusPoint Ltd. (the “Company”) I/We, having become entitled in consequence of the [death/bankruptcy] of [name and address of deceased/bankrupt Member] to [number] share(s) standing in the Register of Members of the Company in the name of the said [name of deceased/bankrupt Member] instead of being registered myself/ourselves, elect to have [name of transferee] (the “Transferee”) registered as a transferee of such share(s) and I/we do hereby accordingly transfer the said share(s) to the Transferee to hold the same unto the Transferee, his or her executors, administrators and assigns, subject to the conditions on which the same were held at the time of the execution hereof; and the Transferee does hereby agree to take the said share(s) subject to the same conditions. DATED this [date] Signed by: In the presence of: ____________________ __________________ Transferor Witness Signed by: In the presence of: ____________________ ________________ Transferee Witness


 

16 1006141665v12 15.3 On the presentation of the foregoing materials to the Board, accompanied by such evidence as the Board may require to prove the title of the transferor, the transferee shall be registered as a Member. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board shall, in any case, have the same right to decline or suspend registration as it would have had in the case of a transfer of the share by that Member before such Member’s death or bankruptcy, as the case may be. 15.4 Where two or more persons are registered as joint holders of a share or shares, then in the event of the death of any joint holder or holders the remaining joint holder or holders shall be absolutely entitled to such share or shares and the Company shall recognise no claim in respect of the estate of any joint holder except in the case of the last survivor of such joint holders. ALTERATION OF SHARE CAPITAL 16. Power to Alter Capital 16.1 The Company may if authorised by resolution of the Members increase, divide, consolidate, subdivide, change the currency denomination of, diminish or otherwise alter or reduce its share capital in any manner permitted by the Act. 16.2 Where, on any alteration or reduction of share capital, fractions of shares or some other difficulty would arise, the Board may deal with or resolve the same in such manner as it thinks fit. 17. Variation of Rights Attaching to Shares If, at any time, the share capital is divided into different classes of shares, the rights attached to any class (unless otherwise provided by the terms of issue of the shares of that class) may, whether or not the Company is being wound-up, be varied with the consent in writing of the holders of three-fourths of the issued shares of that class or with the sanction of a resolution passed by a majority of the votes cast at a separate general meeting of the holders of the shares of the class at which meeting the necessary quorum shall be two persons at least holding or representing by proxy one-third of the issued shares of the class. The rights conferred upon the holders of the shares of any class or series issued with preferred or other rights shall not, unless otherwise expressly provided by the terms of issue of the shares of that class or series, be deemed to be varied by the creation or issue of further shares ranking pari passu therewith. DIVIDENDS AND CAPITALISATION 18. Dividends 18.1 The Board may, subject to these Bye-laws and in accordance with the Act, declare a dividend to be paid to the Members, in proportion to the number of shares held by them, and such dividend may be paid in cash or wholly or partly in specie in which case the Board may fix the value for distribution in specie of any assets. No unpaid dividend shall bear interest as against the Company.


 

17 1006141665v12 18.2 The Board may fix any date as the record date for determining the Members entitled to receive any dividend. 18.3 The Company may pay dividends in proportion to the amount paid up on each share where a larger amount is paid up on some shares than on others. 18.4 The Board may declare and make such other distributions (in cash or in specie) to the Members as may be lawfully made out of the assets of the Company. No unpaid distribution shall bear interest as against the Company. 19. Power to Set Aside Profits The Board may, before declaring a dividend, set aside out of the surplus or profits of the Company, such amount as it thinks proper as a reserve to be used to meet contingencies or for equalising dividends or for any other purpose. 20. Method of Payment 20.1 Any dividend, interest, or other moneys payable in cash in respect of the shares may be paid by cheque or draft sent through the post directed to the Member at such Member’s address in the Register of Members, or to such person and to such address as the holder may in writing direct. 20.2 In the case of joint holders of shares, any dividend, interest or other moneys payable in cash in respect of shares may be paid by cheque or draft sent through the post directed to the address of the holder first named in the Register of Members, or to such person and to such address as the joint holders may in writing direct. If two or more persons are registered as joint holders of any shares any one can give an effectual receipt for any dividend paid in respect of such shares. 20.3 The Board may deduct from the dividends or distributions payable to any Member all moneys due from such Member to the Company on account of calls or otherwise. 20.4 The Company shall be entitled to cease sending dividend cheques and warrants by post or otherwise to a Member if those instruments have been returned undelivered to, or left uncashed by, that Member on at least two consecutive occasions or, following one such occasion, reasonable enquiries have failed to establish the Member’s new address. The entitlement conferred on the Company by this Bye-law in respect of any Member shall cease if the Member claims a dividend or cashes a dividend cheque or warrant. 21. Capitalisation 21.1 The Board may capitalise any amount for the time being standing to the credit of any of the Company’s share premium or other reserve accounts or to the credit of the profit and loss account or otherwise available for distribution by applying such amount in paying up unissued shares to be allotted as fully paid bonus shares pro rata (except in connection with the conversion of shares of one class to shares of another class) to the Members.


 

18 1006141665v12 21.2 The Board may capitalise any amount for the time being standing to the credit of a reserve account or amounts otherwise available for dividend or distribution by applying such amounts in paying up in full, partly or nil paid shares of those Members who would have been entitled to such amounts if they were distributed by way of dividend or distribution. MEETINGS OF MEMBERS 22. Annual General Meetings Notwithstanding the provisions of the Act entitling the Members of the Company to elect to dispense with the holding of an annual general meeting, an annual general meeting shall be held in each year (other than the year of incorporation) at such time and place, which shall not be in the United States, as the Chairman (if any) or any two Directors or any Director and the Secretary or the Board shall appoint. 23. Special General Meetings The Chairman (if any) or any two Directors or any Director and the Secretary or the Board may convene a special general meeting which shall not be in the United States whenever in their judgment such a meeting is necessary. 24. Requisitioned General Meetings and Other Business 24.1 The Board shall, on the requisition of Members holding at the date of the deposit of the requisition not less than one-tenth of such of the paid-up share capital of the Company as at the date of the deposit carries the right to vote at general meetings, forthwith proceed to convene a special general meeting and the provisions of the Act shall apply. 24.2 In addition to any rights of Members under the Act or these Bye-laws, business may be brought before any annual general meeting or any special general meeting by any person who: (i) is a Member of record on the date of the giving of the notice provided for in this Bye-law 24 and on the record date for the determination of Members entitled to receive notice of and vote at such meeting; and (ii) complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Bye-law 24; provided always that the business to be brought before any general meeting is, under applicable law, a proper subject for determination by the Members. 24.3 In addition to any other applicable requirements, for other business to be proposed by a Member pursuant to Bye-law 24.2, such Member must have given timely notice thereof in proper written form to the Secretary. 24.4 To be timely, a notice given to the Secretary pursuant to Bye-law 24.3 must be delivered to or mailed and received by the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Company as set forth in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: (i) in the case of an annual general meeting, not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days before the anniversary of the last annual general meeting or, in the event the annual general meeting is called for a date that is greater than 30 days before or after such anniversary, the notice must be so delivered or mailed and received not later than 10


 

19 1006141665v12 days following the earlier of the date on which notice of the annual general meeting was posted to Members or the date on which initial public disclosure of the date of the annual general meeting was made; and (ii) in the case of a special general meeting, not later than 7 days following the earlier of the date on which notice of the special general meeting was posted to Members or the date on which initial public disclosure of the date of the special general meeting was made. In no event shall the adjournment or postponement of any meeting, or the public announcement thereof, commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a Member’s notice as described in Bye-law 24.4. 24.5 To be in proper written form, a notice given to the Secretary pursuant to Bye-law 24.3 must set forth as to each matter such Member proposed to bring before the general meeting: (i) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the general meeting, the text of the proposal or business (including the text of any resolutions proposed for consideration and, in the event that such business includes a proposal to amend the Bye-laws of the Company, the language of the proposed amendment) and the reasons for conducting such business at the general meeting; (ii) the name and record address of such Member and of the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the business is being proposed; (iii) the class or series and number of shares of the Company which are registered in the name of or beneficially owned by such Member and such beneficial owner (including any shares as to which such Member or such beneficial owner has a right to acquire ownership at any time in the future); (iv) a description of all derivatives, swaps or other transactions or series of transactions engaged in, directly or indirectly, by such Member or such beneficial owner, the purpose or effect of which is to give such Member or such beneficial owner economic risk similar to ownership of shares of the Company; (v) a description of all agreements, arrangements, understandings or relationships engaged in, directly or indirectly, by such Member or such beneficial owner (including, regardless of the form of settlement, any derivative, long or short positions, profit interests, forwards, futures, swaps, options, warrants, convertible securities, stock appreciation or similar rights, hedging transactions and borrowed or loaned shares), the purpose or effect of which is to mitigate loss to, reduce the economic risk (or ownership or otherwise) of any shares or any class or series of shares of the Company, manage the risk of share price changes for, or increase or decrease the voting power of, such Member or beneficial owner, or which provides, directly or indirectly, such Member or beneficial owner with the opportunity to profit from any decrease in the price or value of the shares or any class or series of shares of the Company; (vi) a description of all agreements, arrangements, understandings or relationships between such Member or such beneficial owner or any of their respective affiliates or associates, and any other person or persons (including their names) in connection with the proposal of such business by such Member and any material interest of such Member or such beneficial owner or any of their respective affiliates or associates in such business; (vii) a representation that such Member intends to appear in person or by proxy at the general meeting to bring such business before the general meeting; (viii) a representation as to whether such Member or any such beneficial owner intends or is part of a group that intends to (A) deliver a proxy statement and/or form of proxy to Members of at least the percentage of the voting power of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares required to pass such proposed business and/or (B) otherwise solicit proxies from Members in support of such proposed business;


 

20 1006141665v12 and (ix) such other information relating to the proposed business as the Company may reasonably require. 24.6 Once business has been properly brought before the general meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Bye-law 24, nothing in this Bye-law shall be deemed to preclude discussion by any Member of such business. If the chairman of a general meeting determines that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with this Bye-law 24, the chairman shall declare to the meeting that the business was not properly brought before the meeting and the determination of the chairman shall be final and such business shall not be transacted. 24.7 No business may be transacted at a general meeting, other than business that is either (i) properly brought before the general meeting by or at the direction of the Board (or any duly authorised committee thereof); or (ii) properly brought before the general meeting by any Member or Members in accordance with the Act or these Bye-laws. 24.8 If requested by the Company, the information required under Bye-laws 24.5(iii), (iv), (v) and (vi) shall be supplemented by such Member and any such beneficial owner not later than 10 days after the record date for the meeting to disclose such information as of the record date. 25. Notice 25.1 At least 21 days’ notice of an annual general meeting shall be given to each Member entitled to attend and vote thereat, stating the date, place and time which shall not be in the United States at which the meeting is to be held, that the election of Directors will take place thereat, and as far as practicable, the other business to be conducted at the meeting. 25.2 At least 21 days’ notice of a special general meeting shall be given to each Member entitled to attend and vote thereat, stating the date, time, place which shall not be in the United States and the general nature of the business to be considered at the meeting. 25.3 The Board may fix any date as the record date for determining the Members entitled to receive notice of and to vote at any general meeting. 25.4 A general meeting shall, notwithstanding that it is called on shorter notice than that specified in these Bye-laws, be deemed to have been properly called if it is so agreed by (i) all the Members entitled to attend and vote thereat in the case of an annual general meeting; and (ii) by a majority in number of the Members having the right to attend and vote at the meeting, being a majority together holding not less than 95% in nominal value of the shares giving a right to attend and vote thereat in the case of a special general meeting. 25.5 The accidental omission to give notice of a general meeting to, or the non-receipt of a notice of a general meeting by, any person entitled to receive notice shall not invalidate the proceedings at that meeting.


 

21 1006141665v12 26. Giving Notice and Access 26.1 A notice may be given by the Company to a Member: (a) by delivering it to such Member in person, in which case the notice shall be deemed to have been served upon such delivery; or (b) by sending it by letter mail or courier to such Member’s address in the Register of Members, in which case the notice shall be deemed to have been served seven days after the date on which it is deposited, with postage prepaid, in the mail; or (c) by sending it by courier to such Member’s address in the Register of Members, in which case the notice shall be deemed to have been served two days after the date on which it is deposited, with courier fees paid, with the courier service; or (d) by transmitting it by electronic means (including facsimile and electronic mail, but not telephone) in accordance with such directions as may be given by such Member to the Company for such purpose in which case the notice shall be deemed to have been served at the time that it would in the ordinary course be transmitted; or (e) by delivering it in accordance with the provisions of the Act pertaining to delivery of electronic records by publication on a website, in which case the notice shall be deemed to have been served at the time when the requirements of the Act in that regard have been met. 26.2 Any notice required to be given to a Member shall, with respect to any shares held jointly by two or more persons, be given to whichever of such persons is named first in the Register of Members and notice so given shall be sufficient notice to all the holders of such shares. 26.3 In proving service under paragraphs 26.1 (b), (c) and (d), it shall be sufficient to prove that the notice was properly addressed and prepaid, if posted or sent by courier, and the time when it was posted, deposited with the courier, or transmitted by electronic means. 27.

23 1006141665v12 regulations promulgated thereunder. Such notice must be accompanied by a written consent of each proposed nominee to being named as a nominee and to serve as a Director if elected. (d) No person shall be eligible for election as a Director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Bye-law 27. If the Chairman of the meeting determines that a nomination was not made in accordance with the foregoing procedures, the Chairman shall declare to the meeting that the nomination was defective and such defective nomination shall be disregarded. (e) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Bye-law 27, unless otherwise required by the Act, if the Member (or a qualified representative of the Member) does not appear at the annual general meeting or special general meeting to present a nomination, such nomination shall be disregarded notwithstanding that proxies in respect of such vote may have been received by the Company.

Postponement or Cancellation of General Meeting The Secretary may, and on instruction of the Chairman or president the Secretary shall, postpone or cancel any general meeting called in accordance with these Bye-laws (other than a meeting requisitioned under these Bye-laws) provided that notice of postponement or cancellation is given to the Members before the time for such meeting. Fresh notice of the date, time and place for the postponed or cancelled meeting shall be given to each Member in accordance with these Bye- laws. 29. Electronic Participation and Security in Meetings 29.1 Members may participate in any general meeting by such telephonic, electronic or other communication facilities or means as permit all persons participating in the meeting to communicate with each other simultaneously and instantaneously, and participation in such a meeting shall constitute presence in person at such meeting.


 

24 1006141665v12 29.2 The Board may, and at any general meeting, the Chairman of such meeting may, make any arrangement and impose any requirement or restriction it or he considers appropriate to ensure the security of the general meeting including, without limitation, requirements for evidence of identity to be produced by those attending the meeting, the searching of their personal property and the restriction of items that may be taken into the meeting place. The Board and, at any general meeting, the chairman of such meeting are entitled to refuse entry to a person who refuses to comply with any such arrangements, requirements or restrictions. 30. Quorum at General Meetings 30.1 At any general meeting two or more persons present in person throughout the meeting and representing in person or by proxy in excess of 50% of the total issued voting shares in the Company throughout the meeting shall form a quorum for the transaction of business, provided, however that no Member may participate in any general meeting during which that Member (or, if any Member is an entity, its representative) is physically present in the United States. 30.2 If within half an hour from the time appointed for the meeting a quorum is not present, then, in the case of a meeting convened on a requisition, the meeting shall be deemed cancelled and, in any other case, the meeting shall stand adjourned to the same day one week later, at the same time and place (which shall not be in the United States) or to such other day, time or place (which shall not be in the United States) as the Secretary may determine. Unless the meeting is adjourned to a specific date, time and place (which shall not be in the United States) announced at the meeting being adjourned, fresh notice of the resumption of the meeting shall be given to each Member entitled to attend and vote thereat in accordance with these Bye-laws. 31. Chairman to Preside at General Meetings Unless otherwise agreed by a majority of those attending and entitled to vote thereat, the Chairman, if there be one, shall act as chairman of the meeting at all general meetings at which such person is present. In their absence a chairman of the meeting shall be appointed or elected by those present at the meeting and entitled to vote. 32. Voting on Resolutions 32.1 Subject to the Act and these Bye-laws, any question proposed for the consideration of the Members at any general meeting shall be decided by the affirmative votes of a majority of the votes cast in accordance with these Bye-laws and in the case of an equality of votes the resolution shall fail. 32.2 No Member shall be entitled to vote at a general meeting unless such Member has paid all the calls on all shares held by such Member. 32.3 At any general meeting a resolution put to the vote of the meeting shall, in the first instance, be voted upon by a show of hands and, subject to any rights or restrictions for


 

25 1006141665v12 the time being lawfully attached to any class of shares and subject to these Bye-laws, every Member present in person and every person holding a valid proxy at such meeting shall be entitled to one vote and shall cast such vote by raising his hand. 32.4 In the event that a Member participates in a general meeting by telephone, electronic or other communication facilities or means, the chairman of the meeting shall direct the manner in which such Member may cast his vote on a show of hands. 32.5 At any general meeting if an amendment is proposed to any resolution under consideration and the chairman of the meeting rules on whether or not the proposed amendment is out of order, the proceedings on the substantive resolution shall not be invalidated by any error in such ruling. 32.6 At any general meeting a declaration by the chairman of the meeting that a question proposed for consideration has, on a show of hands, been carried, or carried unanimously, or by a particular majority, or lost, and an entry to that effect in a book containing the minutes of the proceedings of the Company shall, subject to these Bye-laws, be conclusive evidence of that fact. 33. Power to Demand a Vote on a Poll 33.1 Notwithstanding the foregoing, a poll may be demanded by any of the following persons: (a) the chairman of such meeting; or (b) at least three Members present in person or represented by proxy; or (c) any Member or Members present in person or represented by proxy and holding between them not less than one-tenth of the total voting rights of all the Members having the right to vote at such meeting; or (d) any Member or Members present in person or represented by proxy holding shares in the Company conferring the right to vote at such meeting, being shares on which an aggregate sum has been paid up equal to not less than one-tenth of the total amount paid up on all such shares conferring such right. 33.2 Where a poll is demanded, subject to any rights or restrictions for the time being lawfully attached to any class of shares, every person present at such meeting shall have one vote for each share of which such person is the holder or for which such person holds a proxy and such vote shall be counted by ballot as described herein, or in the case of a general meeting at which one or more Members are present by telephone, electronic or other communication facilities or means, in such manner as the chairman of the meeting may direct and the result of such poll shall be deemed to be the resolution of the meeting at which the poll was demanded and shall replace any previous resolution upon the same matter which has been the subject of a show of hands.

Any business other than that upon which a poll has been demanded may be conducted pending the taking of the poll. 33.4 Where a vote is taken by poll, each person physically present and entitled to vote shall be furnished with a ballot paper on which such person shall record his vote in such manner as shall be determined at the meeting having regard to the nature of the question on which the vote is taken, and each ballot paper shall be signed or initialled or otherwise marked so as to identify the voter and the registered holder in the case of a proxy. Each person present by telephone, electronic or other communication facilities or means shall cast his vote in such manner as the chairman of the meeting shall direct. At the conclusion of the poll, the ballot papers and votes cast in accordance with such directions shall be examined and counted by a committee of not less than two Members or proxy holders appointed by the chairman of the meeting for the purpose and the result of the poll shall be declared by the chairman of the meeting. 34.

Instrument of Proxy 35.1 An instrument appointing a proxy shall be in writing in substantially the following form or such other form as the chairman of the meeting shall accept: Proxy SiriusPoint Ltd. (the “Company”) I/We, [insert names here], being a Member of the Company with [number] shares, HEREBY APPOINT [name] of [address] or failing him, [name] of [address] to be my/our proxy to vote for me/us at the meeting of the Members to be held on the [date] and at any adjournment thereof. [Any restrictions on voting to be inserted here.] Signed this [date] Member(s) 35.2 The instrument appointing a proxy must be received by the Company at the registered office or at such other place or in such manner as is specified in the notice convening the meeting or in any instrument of proxy sent out by the Company in relation to the meeting at which the person named in the instrument appointing a proxy proposes to vote, and an instrument appointing a proxy which is not received in the manner so prescribed shall be invalid.


 

27 1006141665v12 35.3 A Member who is the holder of two or more shares may appoint more than one proxy to represent him and vote on his behalf in respect of different shares. 35.4 The decision of the chairman of any general meeting as to the validity of any appointment of a proxy shall be final. 35.5 Any Member may irrevocably appoint a proxy and in such case: (i) such appointment shall be irrevocable in accordance with the terms of the instrument of appointment; (ii) the Company shall be given notice of the appointment, such notice to include the name, address, telephone number and electronic mail address of the proxy, and the Company shall give to such proxy notice of all meetings of shareholders of the Company; (iii) such proxy shall be the only person entitled to vote the relevant Shares at any meeting at which such proxy is present; and (iv) the Company shall be obliged to recognise the proxy until such time as such proxy shall notify the Company in writing that the appointment of such proxy is no longer in force. 36. Representation of Corporate Member 36.1 A corporation which is a Member may, by written instrument, authorise such person or persons as it thinks fit to act as its representative at any meeting and any person so authorised shall be entitled to exercise the same powers on behalf of the corporation which such person represents as that corporation could exercise if it were an individual Member, and that Member shall be deemed to be present in person at any such meeting attended by its authorised representative or representatives. 36.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, the chairman of the meeting may accept such assurances as he thinks fit as to the right of any person to attend and vote at general meetings on behalf of a corporation which is a Member. 37. Adjournment of General Meeting 37.1 The chairman of a general meeting at which quorum is present may, with the consent of the Members holding a majority of the voting rights of those Members present in person or by proxy (and shall if so directed by Members holding a majority of the voting rights of those Members present in person or by proxy) adjourn the meeting. 37.2 The chairman of a general meeting may adjourn a meeting to another time and place without the consent or direction of the Members if it appears to him that: (a) it is likely to be impractical to hold or continue that meeting because of the number of Members wishing to attend who are not present; or (b) the unruly conduct of persons attending the meeting prevents, or is likely to prevent, the orderly continuation of the business of the meeting; or (c) an adjournment is otherwise necessary so that the business of the meeting may be properly conducted.


 

28 1006141665v12 37.3 Unless the meeting is adjourned to a specific date, place and time announced at the meeting being adjourned, fresh notice of the date, place and time for the resumption of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each Member entitled to attend and vote thereat in accordance with these Bye-laws. 38.

Election of Directors 40.1 Only persons who are proposed or nominated in accordance with Bye-law 27 shall be eligible for election as Directors. 40.2 Where persons are validly proposed for re-election or election as a Director, the persons receiving the most votes (up to the number of Directors to be elected) shall be elected as Directors, and an absolute majority of the votes cast shall not be a prerequisite to the election of such Directors. 40.3 At any general meeting the Members may authorise the Board to fill any vacancy in their number left unfilled at a general meeting. 41. Number of Directors The Board shall consist of such number of Directors, not fewer than five Directors, as the Board may from time to time determine in its sole discretion, up to a maximum of thirteen Directors. 42. Term of Office of Directors 42.1 The Directors shall be classified with respect to the time for which they severally hold office, into three classes, as nearly equal in number as possible, one class (“Class I”) whose initial term expires at the 2014 annual general meeting of the Members will be elected for a three year term, another class (“Class II”) whose initial term expires at the 2015 annual general meeting of the Members will be elected for a three year term, and another class (“Class III”) whose initial term expires at the 2016 annual general meeting of the Members will be elected for a three year term, with each class to hold office until its successors are elected and qualified. 42.2 At each succeeding annual general meeting, successors to the class of Directors whose term expires at that annual general meeting shall be elected for a three year term. If the number of Directors is changed, any increase or decrease shall be apportioned by the


 

29 1006141665v12 Board among the classes so as to maintain the number of Directors in each class as nearly equal as possible, and any Director of any class elected to fill a vacancy shall hold office for a term that shall coincide with the remaining term of the other Directors of that class, but in no case shall a decrease in the number of Directors shorten the term of any Director then in office. A Director shall hold office until the annual general meeting for the year in which his term expires, subject to his office being vacated pursuant to Bye- law 45.1. 43. Alternate Directors 43.1 At any general meeting, the Members may elect a person or persons to act as a Director in the alternative to any one or more Directors or may authorise the Board to appoint such Alternate Directors. 43.2 Unless the Members otherwise resolve, any Director may appoint a person or persons to act as a Director in the alternative to himself by notice deposited with the Secretary. Any person so elected or appointed shall have all the rights and powers of the Director or Directors for whom such person is elected or appointed in the alternative provided that such person shall not be counted more than once in determining whether or not a quorum is present. 43.3 An Alternate Director shall be entitled to receive notice of all Board meetings and to attend and vote at any such meeting at which a Director for whom such Alternate Director was appointed in the alternative is not personally present and generally to perform at such meeting all the functions of such Director for whom such Alternate Director was appointed. 43.4 An Alternate Director shall cease to be such if the Director for whom he was appointed to act as a Director in the alternative ceases for any reason to be a Director, but he may be re-appointed by the Board as an alternate to the person appointed to fill the vacancy in accordance with these Bye-laws. 44. Removal of Directors 44.1 Subject to any provision to the contrary in these Bye-laws, the Members holding a majority of the voting shares of the Company may, at any special general meeting convened and held in accordance with these Bye-laws, by the affirmative vote of all such Members, remove a Director only with cause, provided that the notice of any such meeting convened for the purpose of removing a Director shall contain a statement of the intention so to do and be served on such Director not less than 14 days before the meeting and at such meeting the Director shall be entitled to be heard on the motion for such Director’s removal. 44.2 If a Director is removed from the Board under this Bye-law the Members may fill the vacancy at the meeting at which such Director is removed. In the absence of such election or appointment, the Board may fill the vacancy.


 

30 1006141665v12 44.3 For the purposes of this Bye-law, “cause” shall mean a conviction for a criminal offence involving dishonesty or engaging in conduct which brings the Director or the Company into disrepute and which results in material financial detriment to the Company. 45. Vacancy in the Office of Director 45.1 The office of Director shall be vacated if the Director: (a) is removed from office pursuant to these Bye-laws or is prohibited from being a Director by law; (b) is or becomes bankrupt, or makes any arrangement or composition with his creditors generally; (c) is or becomes of unsound mind or dies; or (d) resigns his office by notice to the Company. The Board shall have the power to appoint any person as a Director to fill a vacancy on the Board occurring as a result of the death, disability, disqualification or resignation of any Director or as a result of an increase in the size of the Board and to appoint an Alternate Director to any Director so appointed and any such appointment shall only be for a term of office equal to the remainder of the full term of the class of Directors to which the Director was appointed or in which the vacancy was created from any increase in the number of Directors, as the case may require. A Director who is appointed by the Board to fill the vacancy resulting from the removal of a Director pursuant to Bye-law 44 shall hold office for the remainder of the full term of the class of Directors of the removed Director. 46. Remuneration of Directors The remuneration (if any) of the Directors shall be determined by the Board of Directors or a committee thereof and shall be deemed to accrue from day to day. The Directors and any board observers appointed pursuant to Bye-law 43.5 will also be paid all travel, hotel and other expenses properly incurred by them in attending and returning from the Board meetings, any committee appointed by the Board, general meetings, or in connection with the business of the Company or their duties as Directors generally. 47. Defect in Appointment All acts done in good faith by the Board, any Director, a member of a committee appointed by the Board, any person to whom the Board may have delegated any of its powers, or any person acting as a Director shall, notwithstanding that it be afterwards discovered that there was some defect in the appointment of any Director or person acting as aforesaid, or that he was, or any of them were, disqualified, be as valid as if every such person had been duly appointed and was qualified to be a Director or act in the relevant capacity.

Nothing herein contained shall authorise a Director or Director’s firm, partner or company to act as Auditor to the Company. 56.2 A Director who is directly or indirectly interested in a contract or proposed contract or arrangement with the Company shall declare the nature of such interest as required by the Act. 56.3 Following a declaration being made pursuant to this Bye-law, a Director may vote in respect of any contract or proposed contract or arrangement in which such Director is interested and may be counted in the quorum for such meeting and shall not be liable to account to the Company for any profit realised thereby. 56.4 Subject to the Act and any further disclosure required thereby, a general notice to the Directors by a Director or officer declaring that he is a director or officer of or has an interest in any person and is to be regarded as interested in any transaction or arrangement made with that person shall be sufficient declaration of interest in relation to any transaction or arrangement so made. 57.
