Coventry and Ritchie Reach Agreement on Protection of Policyowner Information
Date:1/4/2008

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Coventry said today that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York approved an agreement between the Company and Ritchie Risk-Linked Strategies Trading (Ireland) Ltd. I and II for the resolution of outstanding issues related to life settlement policies previously purchased by Ritchie. The Ritchie companies declared bankruptcy in June 2007.

"I am pleased the agreement includes significant safeguards to make certain the insureds' identities remain confidential," said Alan H. Buerger, Coventry's Chief Executive Officer. "As the leader and creator of the secondary market for life insurance, Coventry has been at the forefront of seeking privacy protections for the insureds. From my point of view, having this issue dealt with in a responsible way by the parties was of paramount importance."

As part of the agreement, Ritchie will pay Coventry $10 million and the parties agreed to mutual releases of all claims against one another in the bankruptcy litigation. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Burton Lifland approved the agreement at a hearing yesterday in Manhattan.
