Here is my best explanation:

'confirm' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'result's about right' is the subsidiary indication.
'result' becomes 'ensue' ('ensue' can be a synonym of 'result').
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).
'ensue' placed around 'r' is 'ensure'.
