Information Regarding the Surrender and Redemption of FNFV Group Shares in the Split-Off
Holders of certificated shares of FNF's FNFV Group tracking stock will receive a letter of transmittal from Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, Inc., the exchange agent ("Continental"), with instructions on how to surrender such holder's shares that are subject to redemption for shares of Cannae's common stock. A holder must surrender its stock certificates, together with a completed and duly executed letter of transmittal (and any other documentation required thereby) to Continental as instructed in the letter of transmittal in order to receive their Cannae shares. A holder that properly surrenders its certificates will receive shares of Cannae common stock in book-entry form.
