the vesting or settlement of outstanding restricted share units (“RSUs”) subject to performance metrics (assuming the achievement of the applicable performance metrics at the target level of performance) multiplied by $35.00 per share; and
(3) 84,255 common shares issuable upon the vesting or settlement of outstanding RSUs not subject to performance metrics multiplied by $35.00 per share.

Introduction






This

Amendment No. 5 (this “Final Amendment”) to th

e  Rule 13E‑3 Transaction Statement on Schedule 13E‑3 filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission pursuant to Section 13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on January 4, 2021 (together with the exhibits thereto and as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed on February 1, 2021, Amendment No. 2 filed on February 8, 2021, Amendment
No. 3 filed on February 22, 2021 , and Amendment No. 4 filed on March 30, 2021, the “Transaction Statement”), is being filed by: (i) Watford Holdings Ltd., a Bermuda exempted company (the “Company”), (ii) Greysbridge Holdings Ltd., a
Bermuda exempted company (“Holdco”), (iii) Arch Capital Group Ltd. (“Arch”), Arch Reinsurance Ltd. (“ARL”), Gulf Reinsurance Limited., Nicolas Papadopoulo and Maamoun Rajeh (collectively, the “Arch Filing Persons”), (i v ) Kelso
Investment Associates X, L.P., KEP X, LLC, and KSN Fund X, L.P. (collectively, the “Kelso Filing Persons”), and (v) Warburg Pincus (Callisto) Global Growth (Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus (Europa) Global Growth (Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus Global
Growth-B (Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus Global Growth-E (Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus Global Growth Partners (Cayman), L.P., WP Global Growth Partners (Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus Financial Sector (Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus Financial Sector-D
(Cayman), L.P., Warburg Pincus Financial Sector Partners (Cayman), L.P. (collectively, the “Warburg Pincus Entities”) and WP Windstar Investments Ltd ( “WP Windstar” and together with the Warburg Pincus Entities, the “Warburg Pincus Filing
Persons”). The Company, Holdco, the Arch Filing Persons, the Kelso Filing Persons and the Warburg Pincus Filing Persons, collectively, are referred to herein as the “Filing Persons”. Capitalized terms used but not
defined in this Final Amendment shall have the meanings given to them in the Transaction Statement.








This Final Amendment relates to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 9, 2020 by and among Arch, Greysbridge Ltd. (“Merger Sub”) and the Company (as amended by Amendment No. 1 to
the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated November 2, 2020, and as assigned pursuant to the Assignment and Assumption Agreement dated as of November 2, 2020, between Arch to Holdco, the “Merger Agreement”), the related Statutory Merger
Agreement dated July 1, 2021 (the “Statutory Merger Agreement”) by and among Holdco, Merger Sub and the Company, and the Equity Financing pursuant to which ARL acquired a 40% interest in Holdco, certain investment funds managed by Kelso
Filing Persons acquired a 30% interest in Holdco and WP Windstar acquired a 30% interest in Holdco. As a result of the Equity Financing, Holdco ceased to be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arch and, therefore, is no longer an Arch Filing
Person. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement and the Statutory Merger Agreement, Merger Sub was merged with and into the Company with the Company being the surviving company in the merger. As a result of the merger, Merger Sub ceased to
exist as an independent entity and, therefore, is no longer a Filing Person , and the Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco .






This Final Amendment is being filed pursuant to Rule 13e-3(d)(3) to report the results of the transaction that was the subject of the Transaction Statement.









All information set forth in this Final Amendment should be read in conjunction with the information contained or incorporated by reference in the Transaction Statement.

.  Item 15(c) is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:






On March 30, 2021, at a special general meeting of the shareholders, the Company’s shareholders entitled to vote thereon voted to (i) approve and adopt the Merger Agreement and the related Statutory Merger
Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the merger, and (ii) approve, on an advisory (non-binding) basis, specified compensation that may become payable to the named executive officers of the Company in connection
with the merger.








On June 29, 2021, the Company received the final regulatory approval that was a condition to closing the merger.




On July 1, 2021, the Company completed the previously announced merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company, whereby the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub ceased and the Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdco. The merger
became effective on July 1, 2021 (the “Effective Time”) pursuant to the Certificate of Merger that was issued by the Registrar of Companies in Bermuda on such date. At the Effective Time, (a) each issued and outstanding common share , par value
$0.01 per share ( the “common shares”), of the Company (other than ( i ) shares canceled pursuant to the Merger Agreement and ( ii ) restricted share units canceled and exchanged pursuant to the Merger Agreement) was
converted into the right to receive $35.00 per common share in cash, without interest and less any required withholding taxes and ( b) and each issued and outstanding 8½% Cumulative Redeemable Preference Share of the Company
(the “ Preference Shares”) remained outstanding as a preference share of the surviving company , with the same dividend and other relative rights, preferences, limitations and restrictions as were provided to the Preference
Shares prior to the Effective Time.









On July 1, 2021, following the closing of the merger, the Company notified the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“

Nasdaq

”) of the completion of the merger and requested that trading in the common shares
be suspended effective July 1, 2021 and that the common shares be withdrawn from listing on Nasdaq.  The Company also requested that Nasdaq file a Form 25 with the SEC to remove the common shares from listing on Nasdaq and to deregister the
common shares pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. On July 12, 2021, the Company filed with the SEC a certification on Form 15 under the Exchange Act, requesting the deregistration of the common shares under Section 12(g) of
the Exchange Act and the suspension of the Company’s reporting obligations under Section 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act with respect to the common shares.





In addition, on July 2, 2021, the Company notified Nasdaq that the Company intends to voluntarily delist the Preference Shares and file with the SEC (i) a Form 25 to remove the Preference Shares from listing on
Nasdaq and to deregister the Preference Shares pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act, and (ii) a certification on Form 15 under the Exchange Act, requesting the deregistration of the Preference Shares under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act
and the suspension of the Company’s reporting obligations under Section 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act with respect to the Preference Shares, and, on July 12, 2021, the Company filed with the SEC a Form 25 to remove the Preference Shares from
listing on Nasdaq and to deregister the Preference Shares pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act.
