Navigators announces November date for shareholder approval vote

Navigators will hold a special meeting on 16 November primarily to consider and vote on its planned merger with The Hartford, announced late August.

The meeting will include stockholders of record as of 10 October, and will take place at 10 AM New York time at Navigators’ office in Stamford, Connecticut.

The Hartford’s $2.1bn acquisition of Navigators was announced on 22 August.

Navigators’ go-shop period ended on 26 September after outreach to 44 suitors yielded no takeover bids to rival that proposed by The Hartford.
