Imperial Still In Talks To Sell Stakes In Regent Insurance And Regent Life

Imperial Holdings Limited (JSE:IPL) said that negotiations are still in progress between Imperial, The Hollard Insurance Company Limited and an associated party regarding acquisition by Hollard of Imperial's interest in Regent Insurance Company Ltd. and Regent Life Assurance Company Limited.

Imperial To Sell Interests In Regent To Hollard

Imperial Holdings Limited (JSE:IPL) and The Hollard Insurance Company Limited published a cautionary announcement stating that the two companies have begun negotiations. According to the notice, published on May 27, 2015, Hollard will look to acquire interest in Imperial subsidiary, Regent Insurance Company Ltd. and Regent Life Assurance Company Limited. “The Regent business consists of long and short term licenses in South Africa, Botswana and Lesotho. It covers both motor-related insurance as well as a number of non-motor areas. While the business of Regent has grown strongly since its establishment, a large fast growing portion of Regent’s revenue and profits are unrelated to the group’s core vehicle and logistics businesses and enjoy no strategic, competitive or financial advantage from Imperial’s ownership,” Imperial stated in its announcement. “The growth prospects and value of these unrelated businesses will be better advanced by owners with established capability and scale in financial services and insurance. Therefore, and consistent with its espoused strategy to invest in its core capabilities, Imperial has decided to dispose of the business and insurance licenses of Regent, in a transaction structured to allow the group continued access to the income flows generated by the distribution of vehicle related insurance and value added products, through Imperial’s extensive dealership network,” Imperial continued. Spokesperson for Hollard, Warwick Bloom, tells RISKSA that Hollard will shortly begin a due diligence process in terms of the agreement, with a view to formulating an offer for the businesses. Imperial has stated that the proceeds from the proposed transaction will be invested in due course in the expansion of the group’s core businesses while initially reducing short term debt. The exclusivity period for the negotiations is three months.
