MetLife Announces Expected 2012 Results And Guidance For 2013

Book value per share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income, at year-end 2012 is expected to be between $46.97 and $47.41, up from $46.69 at year-end 2011.

2013 Guidance

MetLife expects 2013 operating earnings to be between $5.5 billion and $5.9 billion ($4.95 to $5.35 per share).

“While our operating earnings per share are expected to be lower in 2013 than in 2012, they are broadly consistent with what we predicted a year ago for an extended low interest rate environment,” added Kandarian. “In light of a lower-for-longer interest rate scenario, we have a heightened sense of urgency about our strategic initiatives. We are focused on the levers we can pull to meet our financial objectives and create shareholder value.”

Per share calculations for full year and fourth quarter 2012 are based on 1,073.9 million and 1,085.4 million shares outstanding, respectively. Per share calculations for 2013 are based on 1,110.4 million average shares outstanding.
