The Company is a life insurance company incorporated in Luxembourg since 1990. The sole shareholder and parent of the Company is The OneLife Holding S.à r.l. which is also incorporated in Luxembourg. Since 2019, the OneLife Group is owned by APICIL Prévoyance (Institution de Prévoyance incorporated under French law) and by APICIL Epargne S.A. (company incorporated under French law) itself entirely owned by APICIL Prévoyance. The Company’s accounts are consolidated for Groupe APICIL within the combined accounts at the level of Société de Groupe Assurantiel de Protection Sociales (France).

The process will comply with the requirements and the legal framework for the renewal or appointment of a statutory auditor, as stated by the CSSF for Public Interest Entities. In addition, Groupe APICIL has set some internal rules and guidelines for such tendering process in order to ensure the internal consistency of the selection or renewal process for the statutory auditors of its entities.
