ASSURED GUARANTY LTD FILES (8-K) Disclosing Regulation FD Disclosure

July 2, 2014



Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

Funds associated with WL Ross & Co. LLC and its affiliates (collectively, "WLR") sold their 10.9 million common shares of Assured Guaranty Ltd. ("Assured Guaranty" or the "Company") on June 30, 2014, according to a Schedule 13D/A filed by WL Ross Group, L.P. on July 1, 2014. WLR has been an Assured Guaranty shareholder for over six years, and during that period, Wilbur L. Ross, Jr. has been a member of the Assured Guaranty Board of Directors and a strong supporter of management and the Company. It is the Company's understanding that the common shares were sold for portfolio management reasons, as the funds that bought the shares appear to be moving toward their natural maturity. Mr. Ross remains a member of the Assured Guaranty Board of Directors. While Assured Guaranty did not participate in the WLR block trade, through June 30, 2014, Assured Guaranty had purchased 56% of its $400 million share repurchase authorization at an average price of $25.24.
