Third quarter 2011 operating income compared to the prior year period was adversely impacted by equity market performance and mortality experience, partially offset by improved spreads.

For further information on this non-GAAP financial measure, please refer to Note (1) and the reconciliation provided within this release.

"FBL Financial Group delivered solid third quarter results with net income of $0.88 per share and operating income of $0.79 per share," said James E. Hohmann, Chief Executive Officer of FBL Financial Group, Inc. "Despite challenging economic conditions, we've been proactive in our approach to increase profitability. These results show FBL's continued momentum and resilience."
