“Second quarter operating results continued to be very solid across all operating segments,” said John D.

Encouraging developments in the quarter included favorable mortality results, sequentially higher life insurance and asset protection sales, positive fund flows in the annuity segment and strong stable value spreads. In the face of continued macroeconomic challenges, we remain very focused on disciplined execution of our growth plans, careful allocation of capital and prudent expense and risk management. We remain confident in our ability to execute successfully on our business and financial plans for the remainder of the year.”

Accounting Changes

Results for the current and all prior periods reflect the adoption and the Company’s retrospective application of Accounting Standards Update 2010-26, effective January 1, 2012, which modifies the accounting guidance for deferred acquisition costs.
