Societe Generale is in exclusive talks to sell most of asset manager Lyxor to Amundi for 825 million euros ($979 million) and complete the French bank’s corporate restructuring while boosting Amundi’s market share.

SocGen said on Wednesday that the capital gain from the Lyxor sale would be around 430 million euros, adding that the transaction would conclude the “refocusing programme” it launched in 2018.
