Under the terms of the definitive agreement, FNF will pay 50 percent of the consideration for the LPS shares of common stock in cash and 50 percent in shares of FNF common stock, subject to adjustment as described below.

At closing, FNF will combine its ServiceLink business with LPS in a new consolidated holding company and sell a 19 percent minority equity interest in the new consolidated holding company to funds affiliated with Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. for approximately $381 million in cash. FNF will retain an 81 percent ownership interest in the new consolidated holding company.
