AVIVA TO ACQUIRE IRISH INSURER FRIENDS FIRST Aviva plc ("Aviva") today announces that it has reached an agreement to acquire Irish insurer Friends First Life Assurance Company dac ("Friends First") for a cash consideration of €130m (£116m[1]). As a result of this acquisition, Aviva will become one of the largest composite insurers in Ireland, with its market share in life insurance increasing to 15%, alongside its existing leading 15% market share in general insurance. This transaction is in line with Aviva's strategy to allocate capital in selected markets where it has scale or competitive advantage and where it can further expand its range of products across life and general insurance. The consideration represents a multiple of 0.8x Friends First's adjusted net asset value[2]. Aviva expects the transaction to meet the group's operating return on capital hurdle from year one and to significantly exceed the hurdle thereafter. The Irish economy has experienced a robust recovery in recent years and the prospects for continued growth remain strong[3]. The life insurance market in Ireland has grown by c.9% since 2014[4]. Aviva Ireland has demonstrated consistent growth over the past few years, with an operating profit growth at HY 2017 of 12%. Friends First, currently owned by Dutch insurer Achmea Holding NV, has been operating in Ireland for over 180 years with a focus on life protection, pension and investment products for individuals and companies. It has over 250,000 customers, a market share of 6% and is a market leader in group risk and income protection. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to complete in the first quarter of 2018. more.....

Utilities (water in particular) always have the worry government will turn off the dividend tap. But for years governments have allowed utilities to rip off customers, and talk about proper regulation always seems to die out as ministers see more "important" things to spend time on... Nevertheless I feel safer with insurers, being clearly private entities rather than state-sponsored monopolies.

A lot of defensive shares utilities, BT, GSK etc are at or near lows, so I don't really see why these would "correct". I have picked up a few recently hoping for better things longer term. AV remains in my top four though.

This stock is not alone. Lots of stocks seem underpriced to me and I seem to hold most of them. People talk of a pull back coming in the market, but I reckon it is already pricing in several interest rate rises, brexit, a Labour government and the next recession.

We may be having a little dip to discount any interest rate rise, but why the low price to start with. Seriously I can not understand why this is so low at present. Obviously out of favour with the big boys for some reason. Any ideas folks?

Shares are quoted ex-div on a Thursday JAF. Tomorrow is the book keeping date. We are ex-div now, hence the drop. (Although you would hardly notice yet another drop on our recent share price performance).

Ironhorse I sincerely hope and expect that your petition fails to garner sufficient support and even if it does, then our elected representatives will consign it to the dustbin of history. Two wrongs do not make a right.

Well there is £223m of it! Which is something less than half of the $650m

Perhaps they don't even need to replace the debt. That's circa £40 millions straight to the bottom line. Nice! Maybe that's why the shares have perked up in trading today.

Well that RNS says over $53m of interest payments sliced off the P&L... any replacement debt would be at a much lower rate of interest, though that is not mentioned.

Good day Spacecake The rectangle top shown by the brown and pink lines is the sideways movement. Whether it will hold for 18 months I couldn't possibly comment.

Great chart bracke, you missed off the possibility of the share price moving right in a holding pattern until the tories lead us into oblivion in 18 mth time.

Down below the 200 dma - probably needs to regain it to avoid further falls.

Support at 500p? Anyway, back to good value and some defensive qualities perhaps going through Brexit...
