July 16 (Reuters) - Aviva PLC AV.L said on Thursday that it had completed the sale of its Asia and Middle East-focused Friends Provident International business, but is retaining a stake in the business having revised the deal's terms.
Aviva said it has sold a 76% stake in Friends Provident International to International Financial Group (IFG) for 259 million pounds ($325.15 million). It had previously announced it was to sell 100% of the business to IFG for 340 million pounds.
The European insurer said the changes to the deal would have minimal impact on its capital ratio.
