After several weeks of speculation, it was announced on 8th September that the Amlin board has recommended that its shareholders accept a cash offer from Japanese carrier Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance of 670p per share.

The £3.5bn offer is equivalent to 2.4 times the company’s net tangible book value and represents a premium of some 36 percent on the closing FTSE share price listed prior to the announcement.

Following the merger of Catlin and XL in May and the purchase of Brit by Fairfax in 2014, the successful completion of Amlin’s takeover will leave only four Lloyd’s platforms listed on the stock exchange; namely Hiscox, Beazley, Novae and Lancashire (owners of Cathedral syndicate).
