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”.

Chubb 'disappointed' after Hartford snubs buyout bid


(Reuters) — Property and casualty insurer Chubb Ltd. said Monday it was “disappointed” that smaller rival Hartford Financial Services Inc. had declined to engage in talks on its $23.24 billion takeover offer.

Chubb made an offer of $65 per share on March 18, a premium of about 13% to Hartford's closing stock price a day earlier.

Hartford’s rejection, which came five days later, was widely expected, as analysts had said the company was worth $80 per share or more.

A deal between Hartford and Chubb would be the biggest in the sector since Aon PLC's $30 billion bid to buy Willis Towers Watson PLC last year, and the largest in the U.S. property/casualty insurance space since Chubb was created in its current form in January 2016.
