Form 8-K for ASSURED GUARANTY LTD


3-Jun-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial O


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 31, 2013, Assured Guaranty Ltd. ("Assured Guaranty") entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") with funds associated with WL Ross & Co. LLC and its affiliates (collectively, the "WLR Funds") and Wilbur L. Ross, Jr. to purchase from the WLR Funds and Mr. Ross an aggregate of 5 million of Assured Guaranty's common shares for $109.7 million. The purchase price of $21.94 per share represents a 3% discount from the closing price of Assured Guaranty's common shares on the New York Stock Exchange on May 31, 2013. This share purchase will reduce the WLR Funds' and Mr. Ross's ownership of Assured Guaranty's common shares to approximately 14.9 million common shares, or to approximately 8% of Assured Guaranty's total common shares outstanding, from approximately 10.5% of such outstanding common shares. The purchase of these shares will be funded with existing funds and is part of Assured Guaranty's previously announced share repurchase plan. The transaction is expected to close on June 5, 2013. After giving effect to the transaction, approximately $71 million remains available under Assured Guaranty's current share repurchase authorization.

A copy of the Agreement is attached as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
