Item 8.01
Other Events.
On September 12, 2019, Markel Corporation (the Company) issued a press release announcing that the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alterra Finance LLC (Alterra), have commenced cash tender offers (the tender offer) for any and all of the (1) 6.25% Senior Notes due 2020 issued by Alterra, and fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company (the Alterra notes), and (2) 5.35% Senior Notes due 2021 issued by the Company (the Markel notes and, together with the Alterra notes, the notes).
The tender offer is being made upon, and is subject to, the terms and conditions set forth in an offer to purchase dated September 12, 2019, and a related letter of transmittal and notice of guaranteed delivery. The tender offer is subject to a number of conditions, including the completion of certain debt financing by the Company (the proposed debt financing), that may be waived or changed. Assuming that the proposed debt financing is completed, the Company and Alterra currently intend, but are not obligated, to issue on the settlement date for the proposed debt financing notices of redemption in respect of their notes that are not purchased in the tender offer.
This report shall not constitute a notice of redemption. In addition, this report shall not constitute an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy or an offer to purchase or sell any securities. The tender offer is being made only pursuant to the offer to purchase and only in such jurisdictions as is permitted under applicable law.
A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated into this Item 8.01 by reference.
