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”.

HARTFORD, Conn.—The Travelers Cos. said Tuesday that its subsidiary, St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Co., agreed to sell Unionamerica Holdings Ltd. to a subsidiary of Enstar Group Ltd. for $343.4 million.

Unionamerica Holdings, which handles runoffs for Travelers' U.K.-based London company market insurance and reinsurance businesses, was sold to Royston Run-Off Ltd. Unionamerica handles medical malpractice, asbestos and environmental reserves, and has gross liabilities of approximately $1 billion.

Hartford, Conn.-based Travelers expects to record an immaterial fourth-quarter gain in connection with the transaction. The completion of the deal is still subject to approval by the U.K. Financial Services Authority.
