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”.

Validus prices IPO


HAMILTON, Bermuda--Validus Holdings Ltd. on Wednesday priced its initial public offering of 15.2 million shares at $22 per share.

The IPO came in slightly lower than expected, as Hamilton, Bermuda-based Validus earlier this month said it would offer 15.7 million shares at between $24 and $26 per share.

Underwriters of the offering have the option to purchase up to 2.3 million additional shares.

The shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange, trading under the symbol "VR."

As the reinsurer previously reported, proceeds from the share offer will be used towards funding the company's acquisition of Hamilton, Bermuda-based Talbot Holdings Ltd. and capitalizing Validus Reinsurance Ltd., among other things.
