EXPLANATORY NOTE

DEREGISTRATION OF UNSOLD SECURITIES

This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 (this “Post-Effective Amendment”), filed by FGL Holdings, a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company”), removes from registration all of the unsold securities registered under the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration Number 333-222232) filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on December 21, 2017 and amended on Form S-3/A by the Company on January 11, 2018 (the “Registration Statement”), pertaining to the registration of 216,253,335 Ordinary Shares, 600,000 Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares, 250,000 Series B Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares and 36,383,335 Warrants.

On June 1, 2020, pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of February 7, 2020 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Fidelity National Financial, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“FNF”), F I Corp., a Cayman Islands exempted company and wholly owned subsidiary of FNF (“Merger Sub I”), and F II Corp., a Cayman Islands exempted company and wholly owned subsidiary of FNF (“Merger Sub II” and, together with Merger Sub I, “Merger Subs”), as amended, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the time of the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement: (i) Merger Sub I merged with and into the Company (the “first merger”), with the Company surviving the first merger (the “surviving company”) and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF as a result of the first merger in accordance with the Companies Law (2020 Revision) of the Cayman Islands (the “CICL”); and (ii) immediately following the first merger, the surviving company merged with and into Merger Sub II (the “second merger”), with Merger Sub II surviving the second merger and remaining a wholly owned subsidiary of FNF as a result of the second merger in accordance with the CICL.

As a result of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the Company is terminating all offerings of its securities pursuant to the Registration Statement. The Company, by filing this Post-Effective Amendment, hereby terminates the effectiveness of the Registration Statement and removes from registration any and all securities registered but unsold under the Registration Statement as of the date hereof. This filing is made in accordance with an undertaking in the Registration Statement to remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities that were registered but which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
