Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Other Events, Financi


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On November 9, 2012, OneBeacon U.S. Holdings, Inc. (the "Issuer") closed its previously announced offering (the "Offering") of $275 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.60% Senior Notes due 2022 (the "Notes"). The Notes have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Notes are unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer and are guaranteed on an unsecured basis by the company's indirect parent, OneBeacon Insurance Group, Ltd. (the "Guarantor"). The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to redeem all of the Issuer's outstanding 5.875% Senior Notes due 2013 (the "2013 Notes").

The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, dated as of November 9, 2012, among the Issuer, the Guarantor and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the "Base Indenture") as amended and supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture" and, together with the Base Indenture, the "Indenture"), dated as of November 9, 2012, among the Issuer, the Guarantor and the Trustee. The Issuer may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part (equal to an integral multiple of $1,000), at its option at any time and from time to time. The redemption price for the Notes to be redeemed will be equal to the greater of (i) the principal amount being redeemed, or (ii) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of interest and principal on the Notes to be redeemed (exclusive of interest accrued and unpaid to, but not including, the date of redemption) discounted to the date of redemption on a semiannual basis, assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months, at the Treasury Rate (as defined in the specimen of the Note) plus 45 basis points, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption.

The covenants in the Indenture limit the ability of the Issuer and the Guarantor to, among other things: (1) incur liens; (2) enter into sale leaseback transactions; and (3) merge or consolidate with any other person.

The Indenture provides for customary events of default which include, among others, (1) nonpayment of principal or interest; (2) breach of certain agreements in the Indenture; (3) failure to make payments on certain other indebtedness; and (4) certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency.

The foregoing summary of the Indenture does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Base Indenture and the Supplemental Indenture, which are filed as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2 hereto, respectively, and incorporated by reference herein.



Item 8.01 Other Events

On November 9, 2012, the Issuer also delivered notice that it had called for redemption of all of the 2013 Notes that remain outstanding.
