BROOKFIELD, NEWS, Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Reinsurance (NYSE, TSX: BNRE) today announced the preliminary results of its previously announced offer (the “Offer”) through which holders of Class A Limited Voting Shares (“BN Shares”) of Brookfield Corporation (NYSE, TSX: BN) were given the opportunity to voluntarily exchange BN Shares for newly-issued class A-1 exchangeable non-voting shares of Brookfield Reinsurance (“class A-1 exchangeable shares”) on a one-for-one basis. The Offer expired at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on November 13, 2023.

The Offer also enabled holders of BN Shares whose personal circumstances favor investing in the paired entity through the ownership of Brookfield Reinsurance shares an opportunity to exchange their BN Shares for Brookfield Reinsurance class A-1 exchangeable shares.

Brookfield Reinsurance expects to take up approximately 32.5 million BN Shares under the Offer. After giving effect to the Offer, it is expected that there will be approximately 10.5 million class A exchangeable limited voting shares of Brookfield Reinsurance and approximately 32.5 million class A-1 exchangeable shares outstanding.
