Reinsurance Group Of America Reports Fourth-Quarter Results

Reinsurance Group of America, Incorporated (NYSE: RGA), a leading global provider of life reinsurance, reported fourth-quarter net income of $223.0 million, or $3.00 per diluted share, compared to $138.6 million, or $1.88 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter. Operating income* totaled $181.8 million, or $2.44 per diluted share, up from last year’s $120.8 million, or $1.64 per diluted share, an increase of 49 percent on a per-share basis. The current-period results reflect better-than-expected claims experience in the U.S. mortality business, and strong performance in both the U.S. Asset-Intensive line and Canada segment. Certain amounts for 2011 have been adjusted for the retrospective adoption of new accounting guidance for deferred acquisition costs.
