AXA and AMP agree Asia Pacific scheme

AXA has announced that it has entered into an agreement whereby Australian banking and insurance group, AMP Limited, will acquire 100% of AXA Asia Pacific Holdings (AXA AP), while AXA SA will acquire 100% of AXA AP’s Asian businesses.

The transaction involves a Scheme of Arrangement that allows the merger of AMP and AXA APH, followed by a sale to AXA by AMP of AXA APH’s Asian assets.

AXA chairman and chief executive officer, Henri de Castries, says: “We are very pleased to announce this agreement with AMP and AXA APH, which we believe will create significant value for the three parties and is a recognition of the quality of the franchise built over the years by AXA APH teams, both in Asia and in Australia and New-Zealand.”

He adds: “Upon completion, this transaction will double AXA’s exposure to the Asian Life & Savings insurance market, support our continued development in the region and further optimise the corporate structure of the group.”

The deal is subject to a number of conditions, including confirmatory due diligence, court approvals and regulatory approvals but completion is expected during the second quarter of 2011.
