Ken Stecher

Welcome everyone. It's an honor to be with you at Cincinnati Financial's Corporation's annual meeting of shareholders. I am Ken Stecher, Chairman of Cincinnati Financial Corporation. While I have attended many of these meetings, this is the first time I will be your host.

At this time I would like to formulate and call the meeting to order. If any registered shareholder wishes to turn in a proxy, please raise your hand and one of the inspectors of election will collect it. Also any registered shareholder wishing to vote in person can now come to see the inspectors of election here to my left to facilitate your voting in person. I will now ask Lisa Love, the Corporation's Secretary, General Counsel to read the notice of the meeting.

Lisa Love

Thank you Mr. Chairman. I certify that on March 16 th 2012 notice of the annual meeting of the shareholders was mailed to those persons who were shareholders of record of the company on March 1, 2012. That notice provided that the annual meeting be held at 9:30 AM on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at the Cincinnati Art Museum. And that the items of business to be considered at the meeting are; electing 10 directors for one-year terms; ratifying the selection of Deloitte & Touché LLP as the company's independent registered public accounting firm for 2012; voting on a non-binding proposal to approve compensation for the company's named executive officers, adopting the Cincinnati Financial Corporation 2012 stock compensation plan; and any other business that may properly come before the meeting. I will include a copy of the notice along with the minutes of the meeting in the company's records.

Ken Stecher
