During this process, we will continue to focus on delivering an excellent service to our customers and improving the performance of the combined company, by capturing the opportunities of these markets and realising the expected synergy benefits. We welcome MetLife Poland and Greece’s employees, customers and partners and look forward to a successful joint future.’
