Prudential Financial Inc. said on Thursday it completed the planned sale of its minority stake in a retail brokerage to Wells Fargo & Co. for $4.5 billion in cash.
The second-largest U.S. life insurer also received $418.4 million in principal and interest on a note connected to the joint venture, according to a regulatory filing.
San Francisco-based bank Wells Fargo inherited a majority stake in the joint venture, originally agreed between Wachovia and Prudential, when it acquired Wachovia last year.
Prudential said earlier this month in a filing that it expected a gain on the sale of about $2.3 billion before tax, or $1.5 billion after tax.
