Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On June 16, 2014, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (the "Company") completed the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of certain insurance brokerage businesses of Wesfarmers Insurance Investments Pty Ltd and OAMPS Ltd (together with Wesfarmers Insurance Investments Pty Ltd, the "Seller") in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The Acquisition was completed pursuant to a Share Sale Agreement entered into on April 6, 2014 (the "Share Sale Agreement") among the Company, the Seller, Wesfarmers Limited and Pastel Purchaser Pty Limited, as previously disclosed by the Company in a Current Report on Form 8-K dated April 7, 2014 under Item 1.01. The Share Sale Agreement was amended and restated on June 15, 2014 in order to (i) increase the purchase price by A$10,000,000 and
(ii) provide for a June 16, 2014 closing of the Acquisition (rather than June 30, 2014). Except as modified by the preceding sentence, the description of the Share Sale Agreement set forth under Item 1.01 of the Company's April 7, 2014 Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

The Purchase Price is subject to a net current asset adjustment, as provided in the Share Sale Agreement. Other than with respect to the Acquisition, there is no material relationship between the Company and the Seller. The Company funded the Purchase Price using proceeds from an equity offering, cash on hand and proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility.
