Tender Offer: Eligibility to Participate in the DRIP in respect of the Q4 Dividend

On 10 February 2014, TFG's subsidiary, Tetragon Financial Group Master Fund Limited (the "Master Fund"), commenced a tender offer (the "Offer") to purchase a portion of the outstanding non-voting Shares of TFG ("Shares") for a maximum aggregate payment of $50,000,000 in cash.  Shareholders who tender their Shares pursuant to the Offer on or prior to the Record Date will not be eligible to participate in the DRIP unless they (i) properly withdraw such Shares, (ii) make a valid election under the DRIP and then (iii) re-tender such Shares after the Record Date.  Otherwise, such shareholders will receive the Q4 Dividend in cash only.  Shareholders who tender their Shares after the Record Date will be able to elect to receive the Q4 Dividend in cash or, if a valid election is made under the DRIP, in the form of newly issued Shares pursuant to the DRIP.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, directors of TFG and the Master Fund, the TFM Principals (as defined in the Offer), and affiliates of TFG or the Master Fund or any of their subsidiaries will not be eligible to participate in the DRIP with respect to the Q4 Dividend and, accordingly, will receive the Q4 Dividend in cash only.  Additionally, all shareholders who elect to receive the Q4 Dividend in the form of newly issued Shares pursuant to the DRIP are hereby advised that, by electing to participate in the DRIP, they are representing and warranting to TFG that they are not a "covered person" within the meaning of Rule 14e-5 promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Rule 14e-5 prohibits, from the time of public announcement of a tender offer until the tender offer expires, a "covered person" from directly or indirectly purchasing or arranging to purchase any of the securities that are sought to be acquired in the tender offer or any related securities, except as part of the tender offer.  Under Rule 14e-5, a "covered person" means: (i) the offeror and its affiliates; (ii) the offeror's dealer-manager and its affiliates; (iii) any advisor to any of the persons specified in (i) and (ii) above, whose compensation is dependent on the completion of the offer; and (iv) any person acting directly or indirectly in concert with any of the persons specified in (i), (ii) or (iii) above in connection with any purchase or arrangement to purchase any of the securities that are sought to be acquired in the tender offer or any related securities.  Under Rule 14e-5, an "affiliate" of, or a person "affiliated" with, a specified person, is a person that directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, or is controlled by, or is under common control with, the person specified.

TFG reserves the right to exclude any shareholder from electing to receive the Q4 Dividend in the form of newly issued Shares pursuant to the DRIP, if TFG reasonably determines in its sole discretion that the shareholder is or is likely to be a "covered person" within the meaning of Rule 14e-5.

The TFG website (http://www.tetragoninv.com) includes additional information on the DRIP for those shareholders electing to receive dividends in the form of newly issued Shares.
