Cheick Tidjane Thiam

Thank you, Hugh, and good morning, everybody, and welcome to Prudential's Q1 IMS teleconference. I am joined this morning, as usual, by Nic Nicandrou, our Group Chief Financial Officer.

Today, we are reporting a strong start to 2012 with good performances from all of our businesses and a robust balance sheet with an IGD surplus of GBP 3.8 billion at the end of March. In the first 3 months of the year, group sales were up 9% on an APE basis and new business profits were up 8%. Asia continues to be the driver of our growth as APE sales increased by 21% and new business profits by 22%. We remain on track to achieve our objective to double Asia's 2009 IFRS and new business profits by 2013, i.e. to double our profits in Asia in 4 years.
