From CNP Assurances SA to CNP Assurances group

Four historical shareholders have accompanied CNP Assurances SA in the development of its multi-partnership model since its IPO in 1998: Caisse des Dépôts, La Banque Postale, the BPCE group and the French State. 

On March 4, 2020, as part of the creation of a major public financial institution, La Banque Postale acquired the CNP Assurances SA shares held by the French State and Caisse des Dépôts.

On October 28, 2021, La Banque Postale announced its plan:

  1. to acquire the CNP Assurances SA shares held by Groupe BPCE
  2. to file a simplified tender offer with the AMF for the minority shareholders of CNP Assurances SA at a price of €21.90 per share, with a view to a compulsory delisting, if the conditions are met.

On December 16, 2021, the BPCE group announced the sale of its stake in CNP Assurances SA to La Banque Postale, as announced on October 28, 2021.

From 2 to 31 May 2022 inclusive, the Public Tender Offer for the shares of CNP Assurances announced by La Banque Postale took place.

On 3 June 2022, the AMF indicated the result of the simplified tender offer at its closing, i.e. the holding by La Banque Postale of 670,638,249 CNP ASSURANCES shares representing 1,101,676,969 voting rights, i.e. 97.67% of the capital and 98.49% of voting rights.

On 7 June 2022, the AMF confirmed the implementation of the squeeze-out for CNP Assurances shares.

On 20 June 2022, the compulsory buyback of CNP Assurances shares not yet held by La Banque Postale was triggered, resulting in the delisting of the CNP Assurances share. As a reminder, if at the end of the offer (Articles 237-1 and seq. of the AMF's General Regulations), minority shareholders do not represent more than 10% of the capital and voting rights of CNP Assurances, La Banque Postale had indicated at the time of the launch of the simplified takeover bid its intention to implement within three months of the closing of the offer, a squeeze-out procedure in order to transfer the CNP Assurances shares not tendered to the offer in return for compensation equal to the offer price (i.e. €21.90 per share, with a €1 dividend attached - mechanically adjusted for the detachment of this dividend on 27 April 2022, i.e. a price of €20.90).

The CNP Assurances share is therefore no longer listed on the market since that date.

On 12 April 2023, La Banque Postale and CNP Assurances announced the creation of a dedicated division bringing together all of the group’s insurance activities and their legal entities, hosted by CNP Assurances Holding, wich is wholly owned by La Banque Postale. CNP Assurances Holding combines CNP Assurances SA and the four insurance subsidiaries of La Banque Postale (IARD, Healthcare, Personal risk and Advisory).

This final phase consists of combining the property and personal insurance businesses of La Banque Postale and CNP Assurances to create a comprehensive, integrated bank insurer model, in France and internationally. This is now known as the CNP Assurances group.
