U.S. Commerce Secretary Backs Calamos-EXIN Bid For Greek Insurer

The U.S. Commerce Secretary has backed a bid by an American-Dutch consortium to buy the insurance arm of National Bank of Greece S.A. (ATSE:ETE), saying a deal could help U.S. investment flows to the troubled Mediterranean country. Calamos Investments LLC and Exin Holding B.V. (EXIN Partners) are bidding for at least 75% of National Insurance. Calamos-EXIN is competing against three interested Chinese groups: Fosun International Limited (SEHK:656), Shanghai based Gongbao and Wintime Energy Co.,Ltd. (SHSE:600157). Greek media have reported the deal, which has to close by the end of 2017, could be worth about €800 million. U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross wrote a letter to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras that called for a transparent sale, a senior banker told Reuters. "It is a strong letter," a senior banker said. "The Secretary is fully supportive of the Calamos-EXIN bid, saying it would be a good start towards improving U.S. investment flows to Greece," said the banker, who asked not to be identified. Wilbur Ross's letter was copied to the Greek bank association, National Bank of Greece's (NBG) management and the central bank, Bank of Greece, the banker said. National Bank of Greece is selling the unit as part of a restructuring plan approved by the European Union to exit non-banking operations and focus on core banking. Another banker close to the procedure confirmed Wilbur Ross's letter had also been sent to National Bank of Greece management, saying the bank's intention was to complete the sale by the end of May, 2017, although it was not certain that it would be wrapped up by then. National Bank of Greece is being advised by Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS). Calamos Investments Chief Execuitev Officer John Koudounis said in May, 2017, Calamos-EXIN had presented a hard-to-match offer, but did not give details. John Koudounis said other Greek-American investors interested in Greece were watching closely.
