Panamanians Buy Insurance Company in Costa Rica

Seventy-six percent of the capital stock of Adisa Costa Rica, hitherto owned by Istmo Compañía de Reaseguros, has been purchased by Compañía Internacional de Seguros.

Thursday, June 8, 2017

The remaining 24% of the shares of the company Aseguradora del Istmo S.A. remains in the hands of the Costa Rican cooperative Coopenae. 

Istmo Compañía de Reaseguros, which until recently owned 76% of the shares of Adisa Costa Rica, was taken over by the Superintendency of Insurance of Panama in December last year for not having the required assets, among other breaches.

From a statement issued by the Superintendency of Banks in Panama:

The Superintendency of Insurance and Reinsurance of Panama wishes to make the Public aware that within the Forced Liquidation Process initiated on ISTMO COMPAÑÍA DE REASEGUROS INC, the sale has been finalised of 76% of the capital stock of ASEGURADORA DEL ISTMO, S.A. "ADISA Costa Rica", one of the assets of the reinsurer in liquidation.  

"ADISA Costa Rica", has been acquired by COMPAÑÍA INTERNACIONAL DE SEGUROS, SA, a Panamanian insurance company with a trajectory of more than 105 years and that has license to operate in Panama in general branches, bonds and life insurance. This transaction is subject to notification by the Costa Rican authorities.
