Assurant Closes Its $2.5 Billion Acquisition of The Warranty Group
Assurant, Inc. (NYSE:AIZ), a premier global provider of risk management solutions, today announced the closing of its acquisition of The Warranty Group from TPG Capital for a total enterprise value of approximately $2.5 billion. This reflects approximately 10.4 million Assurant shares, or $993 million based on the acquisition agreement closing price, and approximately $1.5 billion in cash, after considering the repayment of The Warranty Group's $594 million in existing debt. The transaction further cements Assurant's leadership position in vehicle protection and supports the company’s growth strategy in the broader global lifestyle market with an attractive product and client portfolio and a deepened global footprint.
“We are excited to close our acquisition of The Warranty Group, which significantly advances our global lifestyle growth strategy of helping consumers protect their appliances, mobile devices and electronics, while solidifying our global position as the premier provider of vehicle protection services,” said Assurant President and Chief Executive Officer Alan Colberg. “The combination of our two companies will support ongoing product and service innovation for the consumer, while we expect to realize significant operating synergies and generate more diversified and predictable earnings over time.”
Jointly operating across 21 countries, the addition of The Warranty Group deepens Assurant’s global footprint and provides additional resources to accelerate Assurant’s mobile strategy in key markets such as Asia-Pacific. The Warranty Group’s U.S. vehicle protection business brings new client partnerships and distribution channels, including dealer networks and national accounts to Assurant. The acquisition also amasses greater consumer insights, which will be used to capitalize on emerging trends in the auto market to better serve clients and consumers. With annualized revenue greater than $2 billion as of March 31, 2018,(1) The Warranty Group expands Assurant’s size and scale within vehicle protection, extended service contracts and financial services businesses.
As part of this transaction, Peter McGoohan and Eric Leathers, both representatives of TPG Capital, will join Assurant, Inc.’s board of directors and will serve on the board’s Compensation and Finance & Risk committees, respectively.
