  • On May 22, 2018, the Superintendent of Financial Services of the State of New York (the Superintendent) granted MLMIC permission to file its Plan of Conversion from a mutual insurance company to a stock insurance company with the Department.
  • The proposed transaction was also recently reviewed by the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. On May 24, 2018, both MLMIC and BHI were notified that this review was complete.
  • On May 31, 2018, MLMIC’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the Company’s Plan of Conversion and submitted it to the Department for approval.  The Plan, among other items, outlines how eligible policyholders will be allocated cash consideration from the Sponsor if the transaction is approved by MLMIC policyholders eligible to vote on the transaction and by the Department.
  • On June 1, 2018, the Department completed its financial examination of MLMIC.
