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”.

Axa further reduces stake in Axa Equitable

Reduced stake

(Reuters) — French insurer Axa SA said on Friday that it had sold an 8% stake in Axa Equitable Holdings through a secondary offering, as part of its plan to gradually divest from its U.S. life insurance business.

Axa sold 40 million shares at $20.85 a share for a total amount of $834 million, the company said. It reduced its stake in Axa Equitable to 40.1% from a previous 48.3%.

The sale of a majority stake in Axa Equitable is part of a plan by Axa to raise cash to pay for its $15 billion acquisition of Bermuda-based rival XL Group Ltd. last year.
