All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included or referenced in this release which address activities, events or developments which we expect or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The words "will," "believe," "intend," "expect,"

-- future capital expenditures.

These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by OneBeacon in light of its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors believed to be appropriate in the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform to our expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations, including:

-- claims arising from catastrophic events, such as hurricanes, windstorms,

earthquakes, floods, or terrorist attacks;

-- business opportunities (or lack thereof) that may be presented to it and

pursued;

-- competitive forces, including the conduct of other property and casualty

-- changes in domestic or foreign laws or regulations, or their

interpretation, applicable to OneBeacon, its competitors, its agents or

its customers;

-- an economic downturn or other economic conditions adversely affecting

its financial position including stock market volatility;

-- actions taken by ratings agencies from time to time, such as financial

strength or credit ratings downgrades or placing ratings on negative

watch;

-- the risks that are described from time to time in OneBeacon's filings

with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited

to OneBeacon's Annual Report on the Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended

December 31, 2012 filed February 28, 2013 Consequently, all of the forward-looking statements made in this press release are qualified by these cautionary statements, and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by OneBeacon will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, OneBeacon or its business or operations. OneBeacon assumes no obligation to update publicly any such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
