SNS REAAL announced today that it has signed an agreement with Anbang Group Holdings Co. Ltd., a 100% subsidiary of Anbang Insurance Group Co. Ltd. (Anbang), a leading Chinese insurance company, for the sale of VIVAT Verzekeringen (REAAL NV).
Under the agreement, Anbang acquires 100% of the shares of VIVAT for a consideration of € 150 million. The solvency of VIVAT will be strengthened to adequate levels through a capital injection.
