“Consistent with its fiduciary duties, in consultation with its financial and legal advisors, the SiriusPoint board of directors will carefully evaluate any proposal to acquire the company, if and when a proposal is received.”

SiriusPoint added that dialogue with its investors is “always welcome”.
