November 10, 2022 at 7:30 AM EST

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (NYSE: FNF) ("FNF" or the "Company"), a leading provider of title insurance and transaction services to the real estate and mortgage industries and a leading provider of insurance solutions serving retail annuity and life customers and institutional clients through FNF's wholly-owned subsidiary, F&G Annuities & Life, Inc. ("F&G"), today announced that its Board of Directors has set the record date, the distribution ratio and the expected distribution date for the pro rata distribution of approximately 15% of the outstanding shares of common stock of F&G to FNF shareholders. Following the distribution, FNF will retain control of F&G through an approximately 85% equity ownership stake.   

The record date for determining the FNF shareholders entitled to receive shares of F&G common stock in the distribution will be the close of business on November 22, 2022.

FNF shareholders will receive 68 shares of F&G common stock for every 1,000 shares of FNF common stock held as of the close of business on the record date. The distribution will be made in book-entry form. FNF expects the distribution to occur on December 1, 2022. FNF shareholders will not be required to take any action in order to receive the F&G distribution, meaning that FNF shareholders will not have to surrender or exchange any shares of FNF common stock in order to receive F&G common stock.

The distribution of shares of F&G common stock (and cash in lieu of any fractional shares) will be treated as a taxable distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Any holder of record who sells their shares of FNF common stock on or before the distribution date of December 1, 2022 will be selling their entitlement to shares of F&G common stock to the buyer of their shares of FNF common stock. Holders are encouraged to consult with their financial and tax advisors regarding consequences of buying, selling or holding any securities, including those described in this news release.

Currently, there is no trading market for shares of F&G common stock. F&G is seeking to list its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") under the symbol "FG" subject to its being in compliance with all applicable listing standards on the date it begins trading on the NYSE. F&G intends to satisfy all the requirements for that listing. The Company expects that F&G common stock will commence trading on a "when-issued" basis on the NYSE under the symbol "FG WI" one business day prior to the record date. "Regular-way" trading of F&G common stock on the NYSE is expected to begin on December 1, 2022 under the symbol "FG". Following the separation and distribution, FNF will continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol "FNF."

Completion of the distribution of F&G shares to FNF shareholders is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including that a registration statement on Form 10 filed by F&G with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is declared effective.  F&G Annuities & Life, Inc.'s registration statement on Form 10, including amendments thereto, can be found at
