The Hartford Completes Capital Raise; Plans to Return Treasury Investment

The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: HIG) today announced that it has completed its previously announced equity and debt offerings as part of its plan to fully repurchase the $3.4 billion of The Hartford’s preferred shares issued to the U.S. Treasury under Treasury’s Capital Purchase Program (CPP).

“We were pleased with the execution of the capital raise,” said Liam E. McGee, The Hartford’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “There was a high level of investor interest in our offerings and pricing was favorable, reflecting confidence in The Hartford’s future. With the funds secured, we are moving forward with our plans to repurchase Treasury’s preferred shares.”

Investors purchased 59.59 million shares of The Hartford’s common stock; 23 million depositary shares, each representing a 1/40th interest in a share of The Hartford’s 7.25% Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock, Series F; and $1.1 billion of its senior notes, consisting of $300 million of its 4.00% Senior Notes due 2015, $500 million of its 5.50% Senior Notes due 2020 and $300 million of its 6.625% Senior Notes due 2040. The number of securities sold in the common stock and depositary shares offerings included 7.3 million shares of common stock and 3 million depositary shares issued to the underwriters of those offerings upon the exercise of their respective options to purchase additional securities.

The Hartford plans, subject to approval, to use $425 million of the net proceeds from the debt offering, together with the net proceeds of its common stock and depositary shares offerings and available funds, to repurchase the $3.4 billion of preferred shares issued to the U.S. Treasury under Treasury’s Capital Purchase Program. Remaining proceeds from the senior notes offering are planned to be used to pre-fund the maturity of The Hartford’s senior debt maturing in 2010 and 2011.
