Societe Generale (societegenerale.com) is announcing that it has reached an agreement to acquire Commerzbank’s Equity Markets and Commodities business (EMC), a leading European manufacturer, distributor and market maker of structured and flow products as well as asset management solutions. With a state of the art technology platform, it benefits from significant franchises in diversified and complementary segments. The activities in the scope of this transaction are based in Frankfurt, London, Hong Kong, Paris, Luxembourg and Zurich. The transaction excludes the Cash Equity brokerage and commodities hedging businesses of Commerzbank.

In line with Societe Generale's strategy to further extend its Global Banking and Investor Solutions activities by leveraging on its strengths, the acquisition of these activities from Commerzbank (commerzbank.com) would reinforce the bank’s global leadership in derivatives and investment solutions across asset classes and would contribute to Lyxor’s development in Europe by boosting its ETF franchise and complementing its active management offering with a set-up and a product range well-suited to answer the needs of German institutional clients in particular.

“Societe Generale and Commerzbank’s EMC franchises are complementary and present an important potential of synergies. This acquisition would further reinforce our Global Banking and Investor Solutions activities in line with our 2016-2020 strategic plan, said Séverin Cabannes, Deputy Chief Executive Officer. In addition, while complementing Lyxor’s ETF franchise, this acquisition would be transformational for our activities in Germany as it would enable Societe Generale to reach a new scale in the leading Eurozone economy. Upon integration, this transaction would bring numerous benefits to clients: the reach and geographical footprint, an extended cross-asset product set, the technology and expertise from two associated leading platforms”.

The transaction is subject to pre-clearance with competent tax authorities, approval by further relevant authorities and the required steps towards social partners as well as the finalization of legal documentation. Societe Generale anticipates receiving clearance in the 2nd semester of 2018. The transaction would include the transfer of EMC’s trading books, client franchise as well as part of the IT infrastructure. The integration of activities and associated teams are expected to take place gradually from end of 2018.

After integration of activities, this transaction would result in a positive impact on the Group’s ROTE (Return On Tangible Equity) and it would have a limited impact on the Group’s Core Equity Tier One ratio.

Both Societe Generale and Commerzbank are committed to ensuring a smooth and seamless implementation for clients.
