UnitedHealth Sells Brazilian Subsidiary as Insurers Rethink Global Expansion

UnitedHealth Group will sell its Brazilian subsidiary, Amil, the integrated managed care giant on Dec. 29 revealed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Other publicly traded insurers have similarly divested international health insurance divisions in recent years after a notable trend of international expansion during the early 2010s.

UnitedHealth said in the SEC filing that its earnings guidance remains unchanged, and it added that the deal is expected to incur a $7 billion charge “which will be excluded from adjusted earnings, the majority of which is non-cash and due to the cumulative impact of foreign currency translation losses.”
