Bermuda’s XL Capital Ltd. announced that to the extent the holders of XL’s Zero-Coupon Convertible Debentures due 2021 are tendered for repurchase by XL on May 23, 2004 (the “Purchase Date”), XL has elected to pay all of the purchase price for such Debentures in cash.

XL said it “has provided a company notice containing details of the Debentures’ repurchase to U.S. Bank National Association (the trustee under the indenture governing the Debentures) to be forwarded to each holder of Debentures who wishes to tender their Debentures for repurchase by XL.”
