Man sells residual Lehman exposure

Man Group has entered into a series of transactions with Hutchinson Investors, managed by the Baupost Group, to sell the residual exposure to the Lehman estates that it acquired in July 2011 from certain GLG managed funds.

The total consideration for the transactions is USD456m, payable in cash by the buyer.

Man may receive up to a further USD5m if overall recoveries by the buyer exceed certain thresholds in the future.

The Lehman claims were valued at USD346m as at 30th June 2012.
          
The transaction allows Man to benefit from the payment of the total consideration, while retaining certain obligations to the funds.

The proceeds will increase Man's regulatory capital surplus and further enhance its net cash position.
