Storebrand ASA: SPP sells SPP Liv Pensionstjänst AB to KPA Pension

SPP, a subsidiary of Storebrand, has signed an agreement to sell SPP Liv Pensionstjänst AB to KPA Pension. Under the agreement, the administration associated with SPPs municipal customers is transferred to KPA Pension. The agreement also includes the transfer of approximately NOK 1.2 billion from SPPs guaranteed portfolios to KPA Pension.

The deal is subject to regulatory approval. Given regulatory approval, the estimated result effect for SPP is positive with approximately NOK 100 million. The result effect is expected to be booked in the 2nd quarter of 2013. The result impact is a combination of low booked values of the shares for SPP Liv Pensionstjänst AB and release of reserves.

The parties have agreed not to comment on the purchase price.

The agreement will strengthen the Solvency position through reduced capital requirements.
