  • Lincoln Financial Group Announces Reinsurance Transaction with Athene and Accelerated Share Repurchase Program

    December 10, 2018 by Lincoln Financial Group

    RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today announced it has entered into an agreement with a subsidiary of Athene Holding Ltd. (NYSE: ATH), to reinsure approximately $7.7 billion of in-force fixed and fixed indexed annuity products. The capital generated from the transaction, including a ceding commission paid by Athene combined with the release of capital, will predominantly be used to fund share repurchases up to $500 million, most of which will be executed through an accelerated share repurchase program. The transaction is expected to be accretive to Lincoln Financial’s earnings per share in 2019.

    “As demonstrated by our record third quarter earnings, we remain focused on executing our business strategy, which includes manufacturing and distributing high-quality products,” said Dennis R. Glass, president and CEO of Lincoln Financial Group. “Organic growth momentum remains strong in the fourth quarter. At the same time we are committed to identifying incremental opportunities, like this transaction, to maximize the value of our attractive in-force business to reward shareholders.”

    Under the terms of the reinsurance agreement, Lincoln Financial will retain account administration and recordkeeping of the annuity policies. The transaction will have no impact on Lincoln Financial’s relationship with, and commitments to, its distribution partners and policyholders. Additionally, Lincoln Financial remains focused on the continued growth of both its fixed and variable annuity businesses, with plans to introduce new products and further expand distribution partners to achieve successful long-term growth.

    The transaction was dated December 7, 2018 and is effective as of October 1, 2018. The agreement is structured as a modified coinsurance treaty with counterparty protections around investment guidelines and overcollateralization established to meet Lincoln Financial’s risk management objectives.

    Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC acted as financial advisor to Lincoln Financial.
