The Credit Rating (ratings) of Wawanesa General have been placed under review with positive implications following the announcement that its parent company, The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its U.S. subsidiary, Wawanesa General, to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s affiliated insurer, Interinsurance Exchange of the Automobile Club, a member of Auto Club Enterprises Insurance Group (ACE). The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. The under review with positive implications status reflects the expected benefits Wawanesa General will receive from joining ACE and the greater financial strength of the organization. The ratings will remain under review until the acquisition is approved by the California Department of Insurance and the transaction closes.
