BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

SCOR to issue new shares


PARIS— SCOR S.E. will formally control Converium Holding A.G. when it settles its offer for the reinsurer today.

SCOR, based in Paris, held 96.32% of Converium shares after a final offer period ended last week. Today it plans to issue 46.5 million new shares priced at €18.79.

The change in ownership means Converium's board of directors will step down at the company's Aug. 30 extraordinary general meeting. They will be replaced by a board that includes Denis Kessler, chairman and chief executive officer of SCOR, Jean-Luc Besson, SCOR's chief risk officer and Victor Peignet, CEO of SCOR Global P&C-Worldwide.
