10:24 EDTVR, MRH, ENH, PTP, AHLAspen Insurance jumps after receiving buyout proposal
Shares of Aspen Insurance (AHL) are rising after a peer in the insurance and reinsurance industry, Endurance Specialty (ENH), offered to buy the company. WHAT'S NEW: Endurance Specialty announced that it had sent a takeover proposal to Aspen, offering to buy the company for $3.2B, or $47.50 per share. Endurance offered Aspen shareholders the right to receive, at their election, all cash, all Endurance common shares, or a combination of cash and Endurance common shares in exchange for their stake in Aspen. Endurance, which said the cash consideration to be offered will be funded from cash resources and $1.05B of newly issued common shares to investors, argues that the combined company would be a global leader in specialty insurance and reinsurance with increased scale, market presence, diversification and profit potential and over $5 billion of combined annual gross premiums written. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Aspen climbed $6.01, or 15.27%, to $45.38 and Endurance Specialty fell 2.95% to $52.23 before shares of both companies were halted for trading around 10 am ET.
