Fairfax Declares Annual Dividend

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 4, 2013) - Fairfax Financial Holdings
Limited (TSX:FFH)(TSX:FFH.U) announces that it has declared a dividend of
US$10.00 per share on its outstanding multiple voting and subordinate voting
shares, payable on January 29, 2013 to shareholders of record on January 22,
2013. Applicable Canadian withholding tax will be applied to dividends payable
to non-residents of Canada.

Consistent with the practice of prior years, the amount of this dividend was
determined taking into account the current operating results of Fairfax and
its insurance and reinsurance companies and the current cash position at the
Fairfax holding company. Consequently, as each year's circumstances are
different, this dividend should not be regarded as indicative of the amount of
any future annual dividends.

Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited is a financial services holding company
which, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in property and casualty insurance
and reinsurance and investment management.
