Tetragon Financial Group Limit

Tetragon Financial Group Master Fund Limited


    TFG and its subsidiary, the Tetragon Financial Group Master Fund Limited 
(the "Master
Fund") today announced the commencement of a tender offer (the "Offer") to 
purchase a
portion of the outstanding non-voting shares of TFG for a maximum aggregate 
payment of
$150,000,000 in cash. The Offer, which was initially announced by TFG on October
29, 2012,
will be conducted as a "modified Dutch auction" with shareholders able to tender
their TFG
non-voting shares at prices ranging from $9.25 up to and including $10.65 per 
share (in
increments of $0.10). The Offer is expected to expire at 5:30 CET on December 4,
2012,
unless terminated earlier. Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch ("Deutsche Bank") 
will act as
dealer manager for the Offer and KAS BANK N.V. will act as tender agent for the
Offer.

    Eligible shareholders will be able to indicate how many TFG non-voting 
shares and at
what price or prices within the specified range they wish to tender. Based on 
the number
of shares tendered and the prices specified by the tendering shareholders, 
Deutsche Bank
will determine the lowest price per share within the range that will enable the
Master
Fund to purchase $150,000,000 in value of TFG non-voting shares, or a lower 
amount if the
Offer is not fully subscribed. All shares purchased by the Master Fund in the 
Offer will
be purchased at the same price. The determined purchase price, as well as the 
proration
factor (if applicable) is expected to be announced on or about December 10, 
2012, and TFG
expects the purchase of shares in the Offer would be settled promptly 
thereafter.

    The Offer is not conditioned upon the receipt of any minimum number of 
shares being
tendered.

    This release is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to 
buy nor the
solicitation of an offer to sell any shares of TFG. The full details of the 
tender offer,
including complete instructions on how to tender shares, are included in the
