“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to repurchase Hamilton shares at an attractive price and return capital to our shareholders,” said Pina Albo, CEO of Hamilton. “We are also grateful to BAS for its support and investment in Hamilton over the years. This transaction allows BAS to fully exit an investment that was made over ten years ago, resulting in meaningful earnings per share, book value per share, and ROE accretion to Hamilton shareholders.

“Along with the strength of our first quarter earnings, and our recent AM Best rating upgrade, this transaction should create significant value for our shareholders, while not impeding our plans for strategic growth in both specialty insurance and reinsurance at this favorable time in the market cycle.”

BAS commented, “We thank Hamilton for the partnership over the past ten years and wish them continued success in the future.”
