A large Dutch insurer says it will be paying more for an executive benefits consulting firm.

AUSA Holding Company, a unit of AEGON N.V., The Hague, Netherlands, says it is increasing the price it is offering for Clark Inc., North Barrington, Ill., 3.9%, to $17.21 per share.

The change would increase the total value of the deal to $304 million, from $293 million, AEGON says.

AUSA is increasing its offer because Clark now expects to get more from selling some of its operations to company managers, AEGON says.
