COFACE SA: Publication of SFCR Group and Standalone as at 31st December 2016



COFACE SA has published today its Solvency and Financial Condition Report (SFCR) on COFACE SA and Compagnie française d'assurance pour le commerce extérieur (the « Compagnie »), in compliance with the new Solvency II requirements[1].
The SFCR for the financial year 2016 was approved by the Board of Directors of COFACE SA and the Compagnie, respectively. It is produced on an annual basis:
- for the Coface Group, involving COFACE SA and its main subsidiaries in France and outside France
- for the Compagnie, on a standalone basis.
  • COFACE SA is applying Coface's interpretation of the standard formula recommended by the Regulator to assess its solvency
  • As of December 31st, 2016, eligible own funds to cover the Group's SCR amounted to €2.0 billion at the end of 2016, which broke down as follows:
    • 77% of Tier 1 capital
    • 21% of Tier 2 capital, corresponding to the subordinated debt eligible under some transitional measures
    • 2% of Tier 3 capital, representing deferred tax assets
  • The Group's SCR cover ratio of 150%[2] at the end of 2016 reflects a comfortable solvency ratio within its target range (140% -160%). This level enables the Group to renew its commitment to distribute at least 60% of its net income.
  • The coverage rate of SCR Solo at the end of 2016 is 255%2
