Premier Diversified Holdings Inc. Announces Share Purchase

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 17, 2016) -


Premier Diversified Holdings Inc. ("Premier" or the "Company") (CSE:PDH) announces that it intends to acquire common shares of the parent company, Sequant Re Holdings Limited ("SRHL"), of a reinsurance company registered in Bermuda, Sequant Reinsurance Company Limited. The purchase price of the common shares is USD$2.00 per common share. Premier intends to acquire up to USD$316,000 worth of shares, and intends to hold the shares for investment purposes only. The purchase price will be paid in cash. Premier currently holds approximately 33.04% (32.26% on a fully diluted basis) of the issued and outstanding common shares of SRHL.

"As a primary shareholder behind SRHL, Premier continues to support this boutique reinsurance company as it continues to build out its book of business, reputation and its unique offering in the insurance-linked securities market under Guy Cloutier," said Premier CEO and SRHL director, Sanjeev Parsad. "We believe SRHL will begin to generate fee income in 2016 and offset our future funding requirements."

The reinsurance company underwrites various reinsurance transactions and collateralizes its obligations through the issuance of insurance-linked securities ("ILSs"). The ILSs are offered to third party investors, and the capital from the sale of the ILSs is used to fund the reinsurance business.
