Report: Hartford nears sales of Japanese ops to Orix for $875M

Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is reportedly close to an agreement to sell its Japan operations to Orix Corp for $875M.

The sale would be part of Hartford's efforts to limit liabilities connected to life and retirement plans that were issued in the past.

Sterne Agee & Leach analyst John Nadel expects any sale to free up at least $600M that was supporting Hartford's Japanese obligations.

    Continues to make progress in increasing value for shareholders. Becoming a buyout targets as it reduces potential exoposures. Significantly under valued. Strong buy.

    Hartford is certainly one of the best values in the present market.

    The question is: Would this event modify in some way the capital management plans announced in Feb 2014 during the 4Q CC?
