Aug 19 14
Fosun International Limited (SEHK:656) is in talks to acquire a U.S. life insurance arm of Swiss Re Ltd (SWX:SREN), reported Bloomberg citing people with knowledge of the matter. Fosun is seeking to buy Aurora National Life Assurance Company for $400 million to $500 million, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. A deal hasn’t been reached and the talks could still fall through, added the people. The people said that Swiss Re began working with Barclays Plc in 2013, to sell Aurora. One person said that Wilton Re Holdings Limited, backed by Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, had also expressed interest in Aurora. Representatives for Swiss Re, Fosun, Canada Pension Plan, and Barclays all declined to comment to Bloomberg on the sale of Aurora. Ray Eckert, a spokesman for Wilton Re, didn’t return a call seeking comment by Bloomberg on its interest in Aurora.

Scentre In Talks To Sell Stake In New Zealand Shopping Mall Portfolio
Jul 2 14
Scentre is planning to sell half of its New Zealand shopping mall portfolio, reported Australian Financial Review. Australian Financial Review said that it is understood that GIC Pte. Ltd. and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board are frontrunners to acquire a stake, in a move that would value the Kiwi shopping malls at about NZD 3 billion ($2.8 billion) - far higher than the current book value of NZD Z2.7 billion. The deal is expected to meet with widespread support as the money will most likely be funnelled into early debt repayments, and the shopping centre landlord will still derive a management fee from running the malls.
