Cigna CEO Says Seeking Acquisitions as Global Business Grows

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Cigna Corp., the world’s largest provider of employer-purchased medical insurance for expatriates, is “perpetually” looking at acquiring companies and has the capability to make purchases of more than $1 billion, chief executive David Cordani said.

Cigna’s capital position and profit growth of 19 percent a year allow the company to be “opportunistic with acquisitions,” Cordani said at a meeting with reporters in Istanbul today. The company received a license to operate in Turkey in August.
