The Romanian Insurance Guarantee fund will take over the claims obligations of ASTRA Asigurari within 30 days after this announcement.

Starting from February 2014, the FSA named KPMG Advisory as special administrator of ASTRA Asigurari after discovering that the solvency and liquidity indicators of the insurer where not meeting the legal requirements.

ASTRA needed a EUR 100 million capital increase but the shareholders were unable to provide the funds nor was another investor found.
