The final sale price of $850 million included ~$25 million that ANZ had already received for the sale of its Aligned Dealer Groups in October 2018.

ANZ estimates proceeds from the transaction will increase its CET1 capital ratio by ~20 basis points. This business has been reported within ANZ’s financial results as part of Discontinued Operations since 1H18.

This successful transaction also completes ANZ’s multi-year strategy to simplify its Wealth business which began in 2016.
