The Merger Agreement amends and restates in its entirety that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger entered into by the Company, TWG, TWG Re and TWG Merger Sub on October 17, 2017. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions therein, in lieu of the transactions contemplated by the original Agreement and Plan of Merger, the Company will acquire TWG through a transaction in which Merger Sub will merge with and into TWG, with TWG continuing as the surviving corporation and as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”).

The following table sets forth summary consolidated income statement and balance sheet financial data of TWG as of the dates and for each of the periods indicated. The summary financial data have been derived from financial records of TWG made available to the Company’s management and adjusted to conform to the Company’s accounting policy of reporting revenue as the actual amounts paid by consumers (retail basis). TWG’s accounting for a portion of their revenues is presented net of amounts paid to the selling dealer or retailer acting as TWG’s agent (dealer basis) as compared to the Company’s accounting, which generally recognizes revenues for such contracts based on the actual retail amount paid by the consumer, inclusive of the amounts paid to cover dealer or retailer selling costs. The conforming adjustments to the summary financial data are reflected in the table below. After the closing of the Merger, the presentation will conform to the Company’s accounting policies. This summary financial data does not purport to reflect what such financial results would have been if the transaction had been completed on or for the periods indicated, nor may be indicative of what the results may be following the Merger and related transactions.
