(1) Calculated based on the bid-side price of the Reference Treasury Security as quoted on the Bloomberg Reference Page at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on April 4, 2024.

(2) The total consideration offered per $1,000 principal amount of 2026 Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase prior to the Early Expiration Time (as defined below) pursuant to the Tender Offer (the“Total Consideration”) was determined by the Dealer Managers (as defined below) in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase and was made equal to the greater of (x) the sum of the present value of the remaining payments of principal and interest on the 2026 Notes from the settlement date to (but excluding) August 1, 2026 (three months prior to the maturity date of the 2026 Notes), at a discount rate equal to the sum of the Fixed Spread plus the Reference Yield and (y) $1,000.

The Total Consideration includes an early tender payment of $50 for each $1,000 principal amount of 2026 Notes to holders who validly tender 2026 Notes and deliver consents by a deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 4, 2024, unless extended or earlier terminated by SiriusPoint (the“Early Expiration Time”). The 2026 Notes tendered may be withdrawn and consents for the Proposed Amendment delivered may be revoked at any time prior to the Early Expiration Time, but not thereafter, except as may be required by applicable law. Those who validly tender 2026 Notes and deliver consents before the Early Expiration Time will receive the Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of accepted 2026 Notes. Those who validly tender 2026 Notes and deliver consents after the Early Expiration Time will receive the Total Consideration, less $50, for each $1,000 principal amount of accepted 2026 Notes. In each case, holders of such accepted 2026 Notes will receive accrued and unpaid interest to (but excluding) the settlement date. The Tender Offer expires at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 19, 2024, unless extended or earlier terminated by SiriusPoint (the“Tender Offer Expiration”).

SiriusPoint intends to initiate settlement for Notes validly tendered by the Early Expiration Time on April 5, 2024.
