This amendment is filed by the Reporting Persons in accordance with Rule 13d-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and refers only to information that has materially changed since the filing of the Schedule 13D. The items identified below, or the particular paragraphs of such items which are identified below, are amended as set forth below. Unless otherwise indicated, all capitalized terms used and not defined herein have the respective meanings assigned to them in the Schedule.

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

 

Item 3 is hereby amended by adding the following at the end thereof:

 

On July 1, 2021, the merger pursuant to the Merger Agreement was consummated. Upon consummation of the merger, Merger Sub merged with and into the Issuer, with the Issuer surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco. Holdco funded payment of the cash merger consideration due pursuant to the Merger Agreement with the proceeds of Equity Financing received from Arch Re Bermuda, the Kelso Funds and WP Windstar, whereby the Kelso Funds made an aggregate cash contribution of $201,140,310 and contributed to Holdco the 230,400 common shares of the Issuer owned by the Kelso Funds. The source of funds for the Kelso Funds’ cash contribution was capital contributions from their respective limited partners.

 

 

 

 

As a result of the Equity Financing, Greysbridge Holdings Ltd. is no longer a subsidiary of Arch, Arch Re Bermuda owns 40% of Holdco, the Kelso Funds own 30% of Holdco and WP Windstar owns 30% of Holdco. At the effective time of the merger, the directors and officers of Merger Sub immediately prior to the effective time, including Christopher L. Collins, Vice President and Assistant Treasurer of KEP and Kelso GP, and Stephen C. Dutton, Vice President and Assistant Treasurer of KEP and Kelso GP, became the directors and officers of the Issuer. The Issuer’s dividend policy with respect to its common shares will be determined by the board of directors of the Issuer. Holders of the Issuer’s preference shares are entitled to the same dividend and other relative rights, preferences, limitations and restrictions after the merger as applied to such preference shares prior to the merger. Following the effectiveness of the merger, the Issuer notified the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”) of consummation of the merger and, on July 1, 2021, Nasdaq filed a Form 25 to commence delisting of the Issuer’s common shares from Nasdaq. On July 2, 2021, the Issuer notified Nasdaq of its intent to delist the Issuer’s preference shares from Nasdaq. Accordingly, the Reporting Persons expect that the registrations of the Issuer’s common shares and preference shares under the Exchange Act will be terminated pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Exchange Act.

 

Item4.Purpose of Transaction

 

The information set forth in Item 3 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 4.

 

The first paragraph of Item 5 of hereby amended by amending and restating it as follows:

 

The purpose of the merger was to enable Holdco to acquire all of the common shares of the Issuer so that Holdco can operate the Issuer as a privately held company while retaining access to the Issuer’s underwriting platform and its licenses in Bermuda, the United States and Europe.

 

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 5 is hereby amended by amending and restating it as follows:

 

(a) and (b) As of the date hereof, none of the Reporting Persons owns any common shares of the Issuer and none of the directors or executive officers of the Reporting Persons owns any common shares of the Issuer.

 

The following table sets forth the beneficial ownership of common shares of the Issuer as of the date hereof by certain persons that may, together with the Reporting Persons, be deemed to comprise a group within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act. Each of the Reporting Persons disclaims beneficial ownership of all of the securities of the Issuer owned of record, or deemed beneficially owned by such persons, and inclusion of these securities in this report shall not be deemed an admission of beneficial ownership of all the reported securities for any purpose.

 

Name of beneficial owner Number of common shares Percentage of outstanding common shares
Greysbridge Holdings Ltd.  1           100%

 

The information contained in Item 3 above is incorporated herein by reference.

 

(c) Excepted as disclosed in Item 3, there have been no transactions in the Issuer’s common shares effected by the Reporting Persons within the 60 days prior to this filing.

 

(d) No person has the power to direct the receipt of dividends from or the proceeds from the sale of, the common shares of the Issuer beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.
