Athene closes on Aviva USA deal

It took nine months and a lot of regulatory wrangling, but Athene Holding Ltd. has closed on its acquisition of Aviva USA Corp. The new entity, now to be known as Athene USA, will make its headquarters in West Des Moines, Iowa, and operate as Athene’s U.S. arm.

The purchase price, first set at $1.55 billion, closed $800 million higher than that figure. In a statement, the seller, Aviva PLC in London, attributed the increase to the repayment of a $290 million loan and “estimated earnings and other improvements in statutory surplus over the period from June 30, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013.”
