On July 18, 2017, OneBeacon Insurance Group, Ltd. (the “Company”) held a special general meeting of its shareholders (the “Special General Meeting”). The proposals submitted to the Company’s shareholders at the Special General Meeting were:

to approve the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 2, 2017, by and among the Company, Intact Financial Corporation, Intact Bermuda Holdings Ltd. and Intact Acquisition Co. Ltd. (the “Merger Agreement”), the merger of Intact Acquisition Co. Ltd. into the Company, as contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the “Merger”), and the Statutory Merger Agreement, the form of which is attached as Exhibit A to the Merger Agreement (the “Merger Proposal”); and

to approve, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the compensation that may be paid or become payable to the named executive officers of the Company that is based on or otherwise relates to the Merger, and the agreements or understandings to which such compensation may be paid or become payable (the “Compensation Advisory Proposal”).

The Merger Proposal and the Compensation Advisory Proposal were each described in greater detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 8, 2017. The Company’s shareholders approved both the Merger Proposal and the Compensation Advisory Proposal. The voting results for the Merger Proposal and the Compensation Advisory Proposal, including the number of votes cast for, against or withheld, and the number of abstentions with respect to each such proposal, are as follows:

In connection with the Special General Meeting, the Company also solicited proxies with respect to the adjournment of the Special General Meeting to a later date or time, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies in the event there were insufficient votes at the time of the Special General Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof to approve the Merger Proposal. As there were sufficient votes at the time of the Special General Meeting to approve the Merger Proposal, the adjournment of the Special General Meeting to solicit additional proxies for such purpose was unnecessary and such proposal was not submitted to the Company’s shareholders for approval at the Special General Meeting.

The Merger remains subject to other customary closing conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals.
