– Operating Earnings of $1.4 Billion, or $1.33 Per Share, up 18% from 2Q 2011 –

– Net Income of $2.3 Billion, or $2.12 Per Share, Including Derivative Gains Due to Lower Interest Rates & Impact of MetLife’s Credit Spreads –

– Book Value Excluding Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income Grows 12% Over 2Q 2011 to $48.60 Per Share –

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2012-- MetLife, Inc. (NYSE: MET) today reported second quarter 2012 net income of $2.3 billion, or $2.12 per share, and operating earnings1 of $1.4 billion, or $1.33 per share.

“MetLife continued to perform well in the second quarter particularly given the current environment,” said Steven A. Kandarian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of MetLife, Inc. “Our story is clear – consistent execution on the fundamentals of the business. Our underwriting discipline is paying off, our investment income and core spreads are healthy, and we’re successfully managing through the low-interest-rate environment.”

Net income included net derivative gains of $1.4 billion, after tax, largely due to decreases in interest rates and the impact of MetLife’s credit spreads during the quarter. As part of its broader asset-liability management strategy, MetLife uses derivatives to hedge certain risks, such as movements in interest rates and foreign currencies. This hedging activity often generates derivative gains or losses and creates fluctuations in net income because the risk being hedged may not have the same GAAP accounting treatment. Also, derivative gains or losses related to MetLife’s credit spreads do not have an economic impact on the company.

BUSINESS DISCUSSIONS

All comparisons of second quarter 2012 results in the business discussions that follow are with the second quarter of 2011, unless otherwise noted. All comparisons on a constant currency basis are calculated using the average foreign currency exchange rates for the current period and are applied to the prior period. Reconciliations of segment net income to segment operating earnings are provided in the tables that accompany this release and in the Second Quarter 2012 Financial Supplement, which is available on the Investor Relations section of http://cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.metlife.com&esheet=50363067&lan=en-US&anchor=www.metlife.com&index=1&md5=ada24c953a6299fe8c4f49e89bed8536.

THE AMERICAS

Total operating earnings for the Americas increased 11% to $1.1 billion driven by strong earnings growth in Retail as well as Group, Voluntary & Worksite Benefits. Premiums, fees & other revenues for the Americas were down slightly at $8.4 billion, largely due to a decline in pension closeout sales, which often fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter.

Retail

Operating earnings for Retail – which includes U.S. retail life insurance and annuities – were $380 million, up 14% due to favorable investment margins, higher fees and lower expenses. Premiums, fees & other revenues for Retail were $2.4 billion, up 3% as higher annuity fees were partially offset by lower income annuity and life sales. Variable annuity sales were $4.6 billion, down 34%.

Group, Voluntary & Worksite Benefits

Operating earnings for Group, Voluntary & Worksite Benefits – which includes U.S. group life, non-medical health and property & casualty insurance – were $295 million, up 29% mainly due to favorable claims experience in the non-medical health business and lower catastrophes in the property & casualty business. While catastrophes were lower compared with the record levels in the second quarter of 2011, they were $44 million, or $0.04 per share, after tax, above the company’s quarterly plan provision for the second quarter of 2012. These higher than expected catastrophes were partially offset by favorable non-catastrophe claim development related to prior accident years of $25 million, or $0.02 per share, after tax, in the second quarter of 2012.

Premiums, fees & other revenues for Group, Voluntary & Worksite Benefits were $4.5 billion, up 4% due to growth across the businesses, including favorable sales and persistency in group life as well as higher dental, disability and property & casualty revenues.

Corporate Benefit Funding

Operating earnings for Corporate Benefit Funding – which includes the U.S. and U.K. pension closeout businesses, structured settlements and other benefit funding products – were $318 million, down 2%. Premiums, fees & other revenues for Corporate Benefit Funding were $645 million, down 35% due to lower pension closeout sales (which often fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter) and a decline in structured settlement sales.

Latin America

Operating earnings for Latin America were $135 million, up 5% (19% on a constant currency basis) due to business growth in several countries. Premiums, fees & other revenues in Latin America increased 1% (13% on a constant currency basis) to $851 million, largely due to growth in accident & health insurance in Chile and Argentina as well as higher immediate annuity sales in Chile. Total sales for the region increased 4%, driven by growth in the accident & health and retirement businesses.

ASIA

Operating earnings for Asia were $275 million, up 61% primarily due to growth in the business in Japan and strong net investment income. The prior year period was negatively impacted by the March 2011 tsunami and earthquake in Japan. Premiums, fees & other revenues in Asia were $2.3 billion, up 6% due to business growth in Japan and Australia as well as improved persistency in both Japan and Korea. Total sales for the region grew 13%, driven by higher life sales in Japan, increased accident & health sales in China and growth in group sales in Australia.

EMEA

Operating earnings for EMEA were $82 million, up 28% (46% on a constant currency basis) due to business growth in several countries and the benefit of a one-time item. EMEA premiums, fees & other revenues were $815 million, down 4%, but up 3% on a constant currency basis. Total sales for the region increased 13% despite the challenging economic environment in Europe. Turkey, Russia and the Gulf countries contributed to the sales growth in the quarter.

INVESTMENTS

Net investment income was $5.2 billion, up 4%. Variable investment income was above the plan range at $371 million ($242 million, after tax and DAC) compared with $273 million ($177 million, after tax and DAC) in the second quarter of 2011.

For the second quarter of 2012, MetLife reported $4 million, after tax, of investment portfolio net gains compared with investment portfolio net losses of $34 million, after tax. Derivative net gains were $1.3 billion, after tax and other adjustments, compared with derivative net gains of $195 million, after tax and other adjustments, in the second quarter of 2011.

CORPORATE & OTHER

Corporate & Other had an operating loss of $59 million, compared with an operating loss of $43 million. Higher net investment income in the second quarter of 2012 was offset by lower earnings from MetLife Bank’s forward mortgage servicing operations and certain other expenses of $29 million ($0.03 per share), after tax.

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Disclosures

All references in this press release (except in this section) to net income (loss), net income (loss) per share, operating earnings, operating earnings per share, book value per share and premiums, fees and other revenues, should be read as net income (loss) available to MetLife, Inc.’s common shareholders, net income (loss) available to MetLife, Inc.’s common shareholders per diluted common share, operating earnings available to common shareholders, operating earnings available to common shareholders per diluted common share, book value per common share and premiums, fees and other revenues (operating), respectively.

Operating earnings is the measure of segment profit or loss that MetLife uses to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. Consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) accounting guidance for segment reporting, operating earnings is MetLife’s measure of segment performance. Operating earnings is also a measure by which MetLife senior management’s and many other employees’ performance is evaluated for the purposes of determining their compensation under applicable compensation plans.

Operating earnings is defined as operating revenues less operating expenses, both net of income tax. Operating earnings available to common shareholders is defined as operating earnings less preferred stock dividends.

Operating revenues and operating expenses exclude results of discontinued operations and other businesses that have been or will be sold or exited by MetLife (“Divested businesses”). Operating revenues also excludes net investment gains (losses) (“NIGL”) and net derivative gains (losses) (“NDGL”).

The following additional adjustments are made to GAAP revenues, in the line items indicated, in calculating operating revenues:

  • Universal life and investment-type product policy fees excludes the amortization of unearned revenue related to NIGL and NDGL and certain variable annuity guaranteed minimum income benefits (“GMIB”) fees (“GMIB fees”);
  • Net investment income: (i) includes amounts for scheduled periodic settlement payments and amortization of premium on derivatives that are hedges of investments but do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment, (ii) includes income from discontinued real estate operations, (iii) excludes post-tax operating earnings adjustments relating to insurance joint ventures accounted for under the equity method, (iv) excludes certain amounts related to contractholder-directed unit-linked investments, and (v) excludes certain amounts related to securitization entities that are variable interest entities (“VIEs”) consolidated under GAAP; and
  • Other revenues are adjusted for settlements of foreign currency earnings hedges.

The following additional adjustments are made to GAAP expenses, in the line items indicated, in calculating operating expenses:

  • Policyholder benefits and claims and policyholder dividends excludes: (i) changes in the policyholder dividend obligation related to NIGL and NDGL, (ii) inflation-indexed benefit adjustments associated with contracts backed by inflation-indexed investments and amounts associated with periodic crediting rate adjustments based on the total return of a contractually referenced pool of assets, (iii) benefits and hedging costs related to GMIBs (“GMIB costs”), and (iv) market value adjustments associated with surrenders or terminations of contracts (“Market value adjustments”);
  • Interest credited to policyholder account balances includes adjustments for scheduled periodic settlement payments and amortization of premium on derivatives that are hedges of policyholder account balances but do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment and excludes amounts related to net investment income earned on contractholder-directed unit-linked investments;
  • Amortization of DAC and value of business acquired (“VOBA”) excludes amounts related to: (i) NIGL and NDGL, (ii) GMIB fees and GMIB costs and (iii) Market value adjustments;
  • Amortization of negative VOBA excludes amounts related to Market value adjustments;
  • Interest expense on debt excludes certain amounts related to securitization entities that are VIEs consolidated under GAAP; and
  • Other expenses excludes costs related to: (i) noncontrolling interests, (ii) implementation of new insurance regulatory requirements, and (iii) acquisition and integration costs.

MetLife believes the presentation of operating earnings and operating earnings available to common shareholders as MetLife measures it for management purposes enhances the understanding of the company’s performance by highlighting the results of operations and the underlying profitability drivers of the business. Operating revenues, operating expenses, operating earnings, operating earnings available to common shareholders, operating earnings available to common shareholders per diluted common share, book value per common share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”) and book value per diluted common share, excluding AOCI, should not be viewed as substitutes for the following financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP: GAAP revenues, GAAP expenses, GAAP income (loss) from continuing operations, net of income tax, GAAP net income (loss) available to MetLife, Inc.’s common shareholders, GAAP net income (loss) available to MetLife, Inc.’s common shareholders per diluted common share, book value per common share and book value per diluted common share, respectively. Reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the Second Quarter 2012 Financial Supplement and/or in the tables that accompany this earnings press release.

Statistical sales information for life insurance is calculated by MetLife using the LIMRA International, Inc. definition of sales for core direct sales, excluding company sponsored internal exchanges, corporate-owned life insurance, bank-owned life insurance, and private placement variable universal life insurance. Individual annuities sales consists of statutory premiums direct and assumed, excluding company sponsored internal exchanges.
