COFACE SA: Publication of Group and Standalone SFCR as of 31 December 2022

Paris, 28 April 202317.45

COFACE SA has published today its Solvency and Financial Condition Report (SFCR) for COFACE SA (Group) and Compagnie française d’assurance pour le commerce extérieur (the « Compagnie »), in compliance with the Solvency II requirements1.

The Board of Directors of COFACE SA and the Compagnie, respectively approved the SFCR for the financial year 2022. This report is produced on an annual basis:

  • for Coface Group, involving COFACE SA and its main subsidiaries in France and outside France;
  • for the Compagnie, on a standalone basis.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • To assess its solvency, COFACE SA uses the partial internal model approved by the ACPR in 2019. The Compagnie’s solvency is still assessed using the interpretation of the standard formula.
  • As of 31 December 2022, eligible own funds to cover the Group’s SCR amounted to €2,404 million, which broke down as follows:
    • 78% of Tier 1 capital;
    • 21% of Tier 2 capital, corresponding to the subordinated debt eligible thanks to transitional measures;
    • 1% of Tier 3 capital, representing deferred tax assets.
  • The Group’s SCR coverage ratio of 202%2 at the end of 2022 reflects a solvency ratio above its target range (155% -175%). This level supports the Group’s decision to distribute 80% of its net profit for 2022 by a €1.523 dividend per share.
  • The coverage ratio of the Compagnie SCR (Solo) at the end of 2022 is 207%4.
