TO THE MEMBERS

SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE UNITED KINGDOM MUTUAL STEAM SHIP ASSURANCE ASSOCIATION +EUROPE, LIMITED ) PROPOSED CHANGE OF COMPANY NAME

Please find enclosed papers for a Special General Meeting to be held at 9:30am on 24th September 2020 at the Four Seasons Hotel, 10 Trinity Square, London EC3N 4AJ.The purpose of the SGM is to pass a Special Resolution to change the name of the Company.The Board proposes to remove “Europe” from the name of THE UNITED KINGDOM MUTUAL STEAM SHIP ASSURANCE ASSOCIATION (EUROPE) LIMITED.

Reasons for proposed name change

Following the decision in 2016 of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, the UK P&I Club established a new European subsidiary in the Netherlands – UK P&I Club N.V., (“UKNV”) – in order to insure P&I risks located in the European Economic Area (EEA). As the Club’s London based holding company will no longer directly insure EEA risks, it is proposed to remove the word “Europe” from its name with effect from 20 February 2021. In changing the name to THE UNITED KINGDOM MUTUAL STEAM SHIP ASSURANCE ASSOCIATION LIMITED, the Club will revert to the name of the original founding mutual of the UK Club.

Impact on Members

The new name will be reflected in Club documentation current with effect from 20 February 2021.Members will first see this in renewal documentation, including blue cards for the 2021 policy year sent out in advance of renewal. Mutual members with ships registered in the EEA (i.e. those Members with EEA flagged ships) and charterer Members located in the EEA will continue to be insured through the UK Club’s European subsidiary,UKNV.

A proxy form and Schedule of Votes are enclosed in respect of the resolution contained in the Notice of Meeting. Please note that completed proxy forms must reach the Club Secretariat, at the latest, 48 hours before theMeeting.

Yours faithfully,

THE MANAGER
