  • Allstate Completes Exit of Life and Annuity Businesses

    March 29, 2021 by The Allstate Corporation

    NORTHBROOK, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) has agreed to a transaction in which Wilton Re will pay $220 million to acquire Allstate Life Insurance Company of New York (ALNY). The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2021, subject to regulatory approval and other closing conditions.

    This transaction, along with the previously announced agreement to sell Allstate Life Insurance Company (ALIC) and certain affiliates to entities managed by Blackstone, completes Allstate’s exit from the life and annuity businesses. Allstate agents and exclusive financial specialists will continue to meet customers’ needs by offering a full suite of life insurance and retirement solutions from third-party providers.

    “This transaction has minimal impact on our strategy of increasing market share in personal property-liability and expanding protection solutions for customers. Wilton Re is a trusted name with a history of excellent customer service and expert management of life insurance and annuity portfolios, so ALNY customers will be well protected,” said Mario Rizzo, Chief Financial Officer of Allstate.

    Transaction details

    Allstate has entered into a definitive agreement with Wilton Re to divest ALNY, including termination of an ALIC stop-loss reinsurance treaty. Allstate has agreed to contribute $660 million of capital into ALNY, then receive a payment of $220 million from Wilton Re. The transaction will reduce GAAP reserves and invested assets by $5 billion and $6 billion respectively. The combined divestitures of ALIC and ALNY will result in an estimated GAAP net loss of approximately $4 billion, which will be recorded in the first quarter of 2021, and generate approximately $1.7 billion of deployable capital.

    Both transactions are expected to close in the second half of 2021, subject to regulatory approval and other closing conditions.

    J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Ardea Partners LP acted as financial advisers, and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP was the legal adviser to Allstate.
