Fairfax Financial Closes Sale of Brit Stake to Omers for About $375M

By Josh Beckerman

Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. sold a 14% stake in Brit Ltd. to Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System Ltd. for about $375 million.

Under the transaction announced in February, Fairfax will be able to repurchase Omers’s interest in the insurance company over time.

In May, S&P Global said the sale of the Brit stake, along with the sale of Riverstone Barbados to CVC Capital Partners, would “help improve the company’s risk-adjusted capitalization and reduce leverage.”
