BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Catlin Insurance Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Hamilton, Bermuda-based Catlin Group Ltd. has agreed to sell its investment in Box Innovation Group Ltd. a personalized auto insurance service that trades as Insure the Box, to Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Co. of Europe Ltd., for £85 million ($132.8 million), Catlin said Monday.

Catlin is in the process of accepting a $3.93 billion cash-and-stock takeover offer from Dublin-based XL Group P.L.C. which was made in mid-December.

Catlin expects to distribute to its shareholders any surplus capital arising from its divestment of Gibraltar-based BIGL, subject to board approval.

Details of any distribution will be announced following board consideration in early January.

Catlin said in a statement that “after detailed evaluation (it) determined the time is right to exit the investment and allow BIGL to find the right partner for the next phase of its development.”
