AFLAC Seeks Acquisitions
May 21 15
AFLAC Inc. (NYSE:AFL) is looking for acquisitions. Robin Wilkey, Senior Vice President, Investor and Rating Agency Relations of AFLAC said, "The other key aspect of our capital plan is the evaluation of opportunities for capital usage. First, we have opportunities to drive organic growth. This can include items internal to Aflac, such as new product opportunities or other costs relative for growing the business. Additionally, it might also include targeted acquisitions for organic or inorganic growth within the insurance space. Capital deployment would also include debt buybacks, similar to the transaction we executed in March of 2015. We do expect operating EPS accretion of $0.07 per diluted share in 2015 and $0.10 a share in 2016 from reduced interest expense, as a result of this last transaction."
