** Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) As part of an annual compensation package that has cash and equity components, Mr. Colville received restricted shares of common stock valued at $30,122.95 following his recent election to the Board of Directors of Signature Group Holdings, Inc. The amount of his cash and equity compensation was prorated, pursuant to a resolution of the Board, for the interim period between August 6, 2012 and December 31, 2012. These shares are scheduled to vest on 1/1/2013.
(2) In June 2010, certain investors who made significant financial contributions to the Company received through a private placement unregistered shares of SGH common stock valued at $0.80 per share, subject to a Registration Rights Agreement (the "Agreement") signed by the Company and approved as part of the Plan of Reorganization to bring the former Fremont General Corporation out of bankruptcy. Mr. Colville held his shares as a tenant in common with Ms. Nancy Colville for the requisite two years pursuant to the Agreement, and neither Mr. Colville nor Ms. Colville were ever affiliated with SGH other than as investors until Mr. Colville became a director of the Company on 8/6/2012. The restrictions on transfer of the stock were removed on 12/29/2011.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, See Instruction 6 for procedure.
