The Austrian insurer grew 25 percent on the Romanian market in the third quarter this year especially after taking over local insurer Asirom which contributed significantly to the general business advance.

It reported six-month revenues of 374.9 million euros in Romania, 153.8 percent up from the similar period last year. Expenses climbed 130.2 percent, to 330.3 million euros.
