Lancashire Holdings Limited                          

16 February 2009
Hamilton, Bermuda

             Admission to the Official List and to trading on the          
             London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities              

Lancashire Holdings Limited ("Lancashire" or the "Company") today announces
that, further to the announcement on 6 October 2008 of its intention to apply
for admission of its common shares to the Official List of the UK Listing
Authority (the "Official List"), an application will be made for the Company's
common share capital to be admitted to the Official List and to trading on the
London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities ("Admission") and pursuant
to Rule 41 of the AIM Rules the Company hereby gives notice of the intended
cancellation of trading of the Company's common shares on AIM, a market
operated by the London Stock Exchange.

It is expected that Admission will become effective and dealings in
Lancashire's common shares on the Official List will commence at 8.00 a.m. on
16 March 2009, subject to receipt of the necessary approvals from the UK
Listing Authority and the London Stock Exchange. Cancellation of trading in the
Company's common shares on AIM is expected to occur at the same time. No new 
shares of the Company are being issued.

Since its admission to AIM in 2005, the Company has both grown significantly
and matured as an insurance underwriter and the directors of Lancashire believe
that a move to the Official List is now appropriate for the next stage of the
Company's development. The directors also believe that due to the higher number
of institutional investors who regularly trade in companies admitted to the
Official List and the higher profile of such companies, the Company will be
better placed to achieve improved liquidity and visibility in its common shares
following Admission. Furthermore, the directors believe that a move to the
Official List will improve the Company's profile in the insurance market and
increase public awareness of Lancashire. This move underlines the success and
progress that the Lancashire Group has made since December 2005.

A prospectus prepared by the Company in connection with Admission will be
published shortly before Admission takes place with a copy submitted to the
Financial Services Authority for publication through the document viewing
facility which is situated at The Financial Services Authority, 25 North
Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London E14 5HS. A copy of the published prospectus
will also be available for viewing on the Company's website at 
www.lancashiregroup.com.

Merrill Lynch International has been appointed as sponsor to the Company in
relation to the Admission.
