Bexil Corporation Agrees To Sell Interest in York Insurance Services Group

NEW YORK -- Thomas B. Winmill, President and CEO of Bexil Corporation (AMEX: BXL), announced today that Bexil had entered into an agreement for the sale of its 50% interest in privately held York Insurance Services Group, Inc. ("York") to York Insurance Holdings, Inc. ("York Insurance"), a newly formed entity controlled by Odyssey Investment Partners, LLC ("Odyssey") and certain other investors for approximately $39 million in cash.

A special committee of independent directors, having evaluated the fairness of the transaction, and the Board of Directors of Bexil have approved the transaction, which is subject to the approval of the holders of at least 50% of Bexil's outstanding common stock. Holders of approximately 32% of Bexil's stock have entered into an agreement in which they have agreed to vote their shares in favor of the sale and against any action that would reasonably be expected to prevent the transactions contemplated by the sale. Preliminary proxy material is expected to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and upon approval, definitive proxy material is anticipated to be distributed to stockholders seeking approval in the first quarter of 2006. Completion of the transaction is also subject to the consummation of an agreement by the other 50% owner of York, Thomas C. MacArthur, to sell a portion and rollover a portion of his shares to York Insurance, and other customary conditions to closing. 

Mr. Winmill said "We are pleased with our involvement in York. Since its acquisition in 2002 for $3 million plus assumption of debt, Bexil has eliminated the assumed debt and received over $12 million in dividends as it grew York's revenue from $25 to $71 million and net income from $.7 to $6.0 million from 2001 to 2004."

A conference call to discuss the transaction has been scheduled for December 30, 2005 at 10 a.m., Eastern Time. To access the conference call, call toll free 1-888-245-4141 (international toll phone number: (630) 364-3730) room number: 452358.
