Item 1.02 Termination Of A Material Definitive Agreement



               The information provided in the Introductory Note of this Current

Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference herein.


               Effective November 26, 2012, in connection with the completion of

the Mergers, Flagstone voluntarily terminated its secured letter of credit facility with Barclays Bank Plc (the "Barclays Facility"). At the time of termination, there were no outstanding letters of credit issued under the Barclays Facility.

Item 3.01 Notice Of Delisting Or Failure To Satisfy A Continued Listing Rule Or

Standard; Transfer Of Listing



               The information provided in the Introductory Note of this Current

Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.


               On November 30, 2012, Validus UPS, the successor-in-interest to

Flagstone, notified the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") of the effectiveness of the Mergers and requested that the NYSE file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") a Form 25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), in order to effect the delisting of Flagstone shares from the NYSE. Such delisting will result in the termination of the registration of Flagstone's shares under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. Additionally, Validus UPS will be filing a Form 15 with the SEC, requesting the termination of the registration of Flagstone's shares under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act and suspension of reporting obligations of Flagstone under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act.

               In connection with the completion of the Mergers, each Flagstone

share issued and outstanding immediately prior to the First-Step Merger was converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, and Flagstone's shareholders immediately prior to the First-Step Merger ceased to have any rights as shareholders of Flagstone (other than their right to receive the Merger Consideration).
