The Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting of CNP Assurances was held on 22 April 2022 at 2:30 p.m. at the Company's headquarters in Paris, chaired by Véronique Weill, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of CNP Assurances.
During the meeting, Véronique Weill presented the main events of the past year, in particular the acquisition by CNP Assurances of Aviva's life insurance business in Italy. She also described the launch of the simplified public tender offer initiated by La Banque Postale as well as work on CNP Assurances' corporate mission, which was written into the Company's Articles of Association further to the Annual General Meeting of 16 April 2021.
Stéphane Dedeyan, Chief Executive Officer, then presented the Group's 2021 results and the outlook through to 2030. The 2021 results were significantly better than those of 2020, stronger even than 2019, and were chiefly attributable to the transformation of technical reserves and the development of international growth drivers in Europe and Brazil. On this occasion, he announced that the Group's SCR coverage ratio at end-March 2022 is expected to come out at between 235% and 245%, based on initial estimates.
All of the resolutions proposed to the shareholders were adopted and the results of the votes were detailed during the meeting.
