Allstate Completes Sale of Life and Annuity Businesses
NORTHBROOK, Ill., Nov. 1, 2021 – The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) today announced that it has closed the sale of Allstate Life Insurance Company (ALIC) and certain subsidiaries to entities managed by Blackstone for total proceeds of $4 billion, which is inclusive of Blackstone’s approximately $2.8 billion purchase price, as well as increases in statutory surplus since March 31, 2020.
“Allstate’s strategy is to increase personal property-liability market share and expand protection offerings to customers. This sale redeploys capital into highly attractive property-liability and protection service businesses and reduces interest-rate exposure,” said Tom Wilson, chair, president and CEO of The Allstate Corporation.
Gilles Dellaert, Global Head of Blackstone Insurance Solutions, said: “We are pleased to complete this transaction. We believe the investment outperformance we can deliver through our industry-leading private credit origination platforms – while maintaining strong policyholder protections – will play a vital role in helping meet long-term customer obligations, especially at a time of historically low interest rates.”
The sale of ALIC, along with the previously announced sale of Allstate Life Insurance Company of New York (ALNY) to Wilton Re, reduces assets by approximately $34 billion to $99 billion and liabilities by approximately $33 billion to $72 billion as of June 30, 2021, and resulted in a GAAP book loss of approximately $3.8 billion in the first quarter of 2021.
Approximately $1.7 billion of deployable capital was generated by these transactions and was considered when authorizing the current $5 billion share repurchase program.
Allstate agents and exclusive financial specialists will meet customers’ needs by offering a full suite of life insurance and retirement solutions from third-party providers.
The ALIC business is being renamed Everlake Life Insurance (“Everlake”) under its new ownership by entities managed by Blackstone.
The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) protects people from life’s uncertainties with a circle of protection including cars, homes, electronic devices, benefits and identity theft. Products are available through a broad distribution network including Allstate agents, independent agents, major retailers, online and at the workplace.
