GENERALI sales its Panama business to ASSA Compania de Seguros

The GENERALI Group has entered into an agreement to sell its business in Panama. The transaction is part of its strategy to optimize its geographical presence, increase operational efficiency and improve capital allocation.

GENERALI operates in Panama as a Branch since 1970 mainly in the P&C segment. The Group has agreed to the disposal of the assets and liabilities of the Branch, including its insurance portfolio, to ASSA Compania de Seguros S.A., a leading insurance player in the region, for a consideration of USD172 million, subject to adjustment on closure.

Through ASSA, the GENERALI Group will remain active in Panama with its international business lines, namely, GENERALI Employee Benefits, GENERALI Global Corporate & Commercial and EUROP ASSISTANCE.

Frederic de COURTOIS, Group CEO Global Business Lines & International, commented: "This transaction is another step forward in the rebalancing of GENERALI Group's geographical presence across the world. We are making good progress in the optimization of our geographical footprint. We just announced the disposal of Colombia and the transaction of Guatemala and this deal will further help us to achieve our targets and to pursue our strategy to make Generali a simpler and smarter company".

Antonio Cassio dos SANTOS, Group Regional Manager for Latin America, explained: "We are executing our plan with discipline with the objective to be more focused and stronger in Latin America".

The transaction is subject to the approval of the competent authorities.
