Bain completes takeover of UK insurer Esure

The scheme of arrangement by which entities affiliated with Bain Capital Private Equity LP will acquire U.K.-based insurer Esure Group PLC became effective, marking the completion of the £1.21 billion takeover.

The completion follows approval of the scheme by the High Court of England and Wales on Dec. 17. Esure's shares were delisted from the London Stock Exchange as of 8 a.m. Dec. 19.

As a result of the completion, Steve Long, Robin Marshall, Luca Bassi, Philip Loughlin and Matthew Bryant were appointed to Esure's board, and Angela Seymour-Jackson, Nick Hugh and Martin Pike resigned. Founder Peter Wood will remain as chairman of the company; he had also owned the largest stake in Esure at just over 30%.

Under the terms of the deal, Esure was acquired by Blue (BC) Bidco Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of funds advised by Bain and its affiliates. The consideration for the offer also included minority equity from funds advised by HarbourVest, Lexington Partners and LGT Capital Partners.

In addition, the Bain Capital funds planned to syndicate some of their funding commitments to the board of guardians of the Future Fund, Australia's sovereign wealth fund.
