    Generali Talks to Buy MetLife Europe Assets Stall Over Price

    (Bloomberg) -- Assicurazioni Generali SpA’s talks over the purchase of MetLife Inc.’s European assets have stalled over price, people with knowledge of the matter said.The Italian insurer was preparing to make a formal offer for most of the U.S. company’s business in the region by the end of the year but talks hit a snag because the likely offer was far lower than MetLife expected, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.Spokesmen for Generali and MetLife declined to comment.Talks between the two companies began earlier in the year and reached a stage where Generali was working on presenting a formal bid in 2019, Bloomberg reported. The businesses, concentrated in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania, may be worth more than 2 billion euros ($2.24 billion), people familiar with the matter have said.Expansion is one of the pillars of Chief Executive Officer Philippe Donnet’s strategy as deals reshape the insurance industry. Generali has said that it’s willing to consider acquisitions to enter new countries as one of the top-five players in that market and had signaled that it was interested in pursuing opportunities in central and eastern Europe.(Adds MetLife’s decline to comment in third paragraph.)\--With assistance from Lananh Nguyen.To contact the reporters on this story: Dinesh Nair in London at dnair5@bloomberg.net;Sonia Sirletti in Milan at ssirletti@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Dale Crofts at dcrofts@bloomberg.net, Michael J.

    Generali Said to Eye Bid for MetLife EU Assets by Year-End

    (Bloomberg) -- Assicurazioni Generali SpA is preparing to make a formal bid for the European assets of MetLife Inc. following months of talks, people with knowledge of the matter said.The Italian insurer has been finishing due diligence and aims to make an offer for most of MetLife’s business on the continent by the end of the year, according to the people. A deal could be valued at about 3 billion euros ($3.3 billion), one of the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.No final agreements have been reached, and discussions could still fail to produce a result. Representatives for Generali and MetLife declined to comment.“External growth in central and eastern Europe makes perfect sense, as the region is the jewel in Generali’s crown,” said Gianluca Ferrari an analyst at Mediobanca SpA. “We believe Generali has plenty of internal resources to finance a potential deal of this magnitude.”Bloomberg reported earlier this year that Generali was in early stage talks to buy the central and eastern European assets of MetLife for more than 2 billion euros as part of its plans to expand through acquisitions.Expansion is one of the pillars of Chief Executive Officer Philippe Donnet’s strategy as dealmaking reshapes the insurance industry.Poland is one of MetLife’s largest operations in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, according to a company filing. In 2012, MetLife agreed to buy life insurance businesses from Aviva Plc in the Czech Republic and Hungary, as well as Aviva’s life insurance and pension operations in Romania.Generali rose 0.5% to 18.75 euros in Milan trading as of 9:27 a.m., giving the insurer a market value of 29.4 billion euros.(Updates with analyst comment in fourth paragraph, shares in last.)\--With assistance from Lananh Nguyen.To contact the reporter on this story: Sonia Sirletti in Milan at ssirletti@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Dale Crofts at dcrofts@bloomberg.net, Ross LarsenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
