PZU seeks majority stake in Slovenian insurer Triglav
September 11, 2012
Poland's top insurer PZU will be interested in taking over Slovenian insurer Triglav if the Slovenian government decides to sell a majority stake in the company, CEO Andrzej Klesyk told PAP Polish news agency, commenting on news that Triglav could be on sale.
"We are waiting for the declaration of the Slovenian government about how many shares it wants to sell," Klesyk said. "We clearly say that we are interested exclusively in a stake assuring over 50% of the company."
"We want to have control over the entity we take over," he added.
Slovenian government could return to the plans of selling country's biggest insurer Triglav in the coming weeks, Triglav CEO Matjaz Rakovec told PAP.
"The new Slovenian government, which has 63% stake in Triglav, wants to exit the shareholder structure or to keep 25% plus one share," Rakovec said. "In my opinion the sale process will start in the coming weeks, probably at the beginning of October."
