Loews Corporation Reports Net Income Of $177 Million, Or $0.45 Per Share, For The Third Quarter Of 2012

CNA’s earnings increased due to higher net investment income and lower catastrophe losses. Increased investment income reflects improved performance of limited partnership investments.

Diamond Offshore’s earnings decreased due to lower rig utilization and a decrease in average dayrate.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 Compared to 2011

Income before net investment gains and impairment charges in 2012 was $901 million, as compared to $782 million in the 2011 period. The increase is due primarily to the reasons discussed above in the three month comparison and improved earnings from Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP, primarily due to the contribution from Boardwalk HP Storage Company which was acquired in December 2011 as well as the prior year impact of an impairment charge related to steel pipe materials.

SHARE REPURCHASES

At September 30, 2012, there were 393.6 million shares of Loews common stock outstanding. During the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company purchased 2.2 million and 3.5 million shares of its common stock at an aggregate cost of $88 million and $139 million. Depending on market conditions, the Company may from time to time purchase shares of its and its subsidiaries’ outstanding common stock in the open market or otherwise.
