Please refer to the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus dated September 11, 2015 on the Chubb Investor relations website.
The receipt by U.S. holders (as defined in the section titled “Material United States Federal Income Tax Consequences”) of ACE common shares and cash pursuant to the merger will be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Accordingly, a U.S. holder will recognize capital gain or loss equal to the difference between (i) the sum of the fair market value of the ACE common shares on the date of the exchange and the cash consideration received as consideration in the merger and (ii) the U.S. holder’s adjusted tax basis in the shares of Chubb common stock surrendered in the exchange. A U.S. holder’s adjusted basis in the shares of Chubb common stock generally will equal the holder’s purchase price for such shares of Chubb common stock, as adjusted to take into account stock dividends, stock splits, or similar transactions. If a U.S. holder acquired different blocks of shares of Chubb common stock at different times and different prices, such holder must determine its adjusted tax basis and holding period separately with respect to each block of shares of Chubb common stock.
For a further discussion of certain U.S. federal income tax consequences of the merger to Chubb shareholders, see the section titled “Material United States Federal Income Tax Consequences - Tax Consequences of the Merger to U.S. Holders of Shares of Chubb Common Stock.”
Tax matters are very complicated and the tax consequences of the merger to each U.S. holder of Chubb common stock may depend on such shareholder’s particular facts and circumstances. Holders of Chubb common stock are urged to consult their tax advisors to understand fully the tax consequences to them of the merger.
