TFG and its subsidiary, the Tetragon Financial Group Master Fund Limited (the "Master Fund") today announced the commencement of a tender offer (the "Offer") to purchase a portion of the outstanding non-voting shares of TFG for a maximum aggregate payment of $50,000,000 in cash. The Offer, which was initially announced by TFG on January 31, 2014, will be conducted as a "modified Dutch auction" with shareholders able to tender their TFG non-voting shares at prices ranging from $10.30 up to and including $11.50 per share (in increments of $0.10).

The determined purchase price, as well as the proration factor (if applicable) is expected to be announced on or about March 14, 2014, and TFG expects the purchase of shares in the Offer would be settled promptly thereafter.
