(Reuters) - Prudential said on Tuesday it was actively evaluating other options in relation to its U.S. business Jackson along with preparations for a minority public offering, due to continued market turmoil on the coronavirus outbreak.
“Our business continues to be financially resilient,” Prudential said in a statement as businesses and organisations globally suffer disruptions as governments move to stymie the spread of coronavirus.
Prudential, Britain’s largest insurer, had announced plans earlier this month to float a minority stake in Jackson amid demands from rebel investor Third Point for a full break-up.
