May 12 British insurer Liverpool Victoria
Friendly Society Ltd (LV=) said on Friday it had received
approaches from several possible buyers about a deal involving
its general insurance division.
"Discussions are at a very early stage, no decisions have
been made as to the nature of any transaction(s) and there can
be no certainty that any transaction will be agreed or with
whom," LV= said in a statement, without naming any of the
Sky News reported earlier on Friday that LV= was in talks
with Germany's Allianz over the sale of a minority
