CNO Financial Group | 4Q2012 Earnings | February 12, 2013 3 Non-GAAP Measures This presentation contains the following financial measures that differ from the comparable measures under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP): operating earnings measures; book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) per share; operating return measures; earnings before net realized investment gains (losses) and corporate interest and taxes; and debt to capital ratios, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). Reconciliations between those non-GAAP measures and the comparable GAAP measures are included in the Appendix, or on the page such measure is presented. While management believes these measures are useful to enhance understanding and comparability of our financial results, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered substitutes for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Additional information concerning non-GAAP measures is included in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that are available in the “Investors – SEC Filings” section of CNO’s website, www.CNOinc.com.

CNO Financial Group | 4Q2012 Earnings | February 12, 2013 39 The following provides additional information regarding certain non-GAAP measures used in this presentation. A non-GAAP measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. While management believes these measures are useful to enhance understanding and comparability of our financial results, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered as substitutes for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Additional information concerning non-GAAP measures is included in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that are available in the “Investors – SEC Filings” section of CNO’s website, www.CNOinc.com. Operating earnings measures Management believes that an analysis of net income applicable to common stock before loss on extinguishment of debt, net realized gains or losses, fair value changes due to fluctuations in the interest rates used to discount embedded derivative liabilities related to our fixed index annuities and increases or decreases to our valuation allowance for deferred tax assets (“net operating income,” a non-GAAP financial measure) is important to evaluate the performance of the Company and is a key measure commonly used in the life insurance industry. Management uses this measure to evaluate performance because these items are unrelated to the Company’s continuing operations. Information Related to Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures

CNO Financial Group | 4Q2012 Earnings | February 12, 2013 42 Book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), per share This non-GAAP financial measure differs from book value per share because accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) has been excluded from the book value used to determine the measure. Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful because it removes the volatility that arises from changes in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). Such volatility is often caused by changes in the estimated fair value of our investment portfolio resulting from changes in general market interest rates rather than the business decisions made by management. 4Q11 1Q12 2Q12 3Q12 4Q12 Total shareholders' equity 4,613.8$ 4,683.0$ 4,893.1$ 5,066.2$ 5,049.3$ Less accumulated other comprehensive income 781.6 808.0 990.8 1,234.4 1,197.4 Total shareholders' equity excluding cumulat d other comprehensive income ( non-GA P financial measure) 3,832.2$ 3,875.0$ 3,902.3$ 3,831.8$ 3,851.9$ Shares outstanding for the period 241,304,503 239,219,445 234,026,409 229,506,690 221,502,371 Book value per share 19.12$ 19.58$ 20.91$ 22.07$ 22.80$ Less accumulated other comprehensive income 3.24 3.38 4.24 5.37 5.41 Book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income, per share (a non-GAAP financial measure) 15.88$ 16.20$ 16.67$ 16.70$ 17.39$ A reconciliation from book value per share to book value per share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) is as follows (dollars in millions, except per share amounts): Information Related to Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures


 
CNO Financial Group | 4Q2012 Earnings | February 12, 2013 43 Information Related to Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures The interest-adjusted benefit ratio (a non-GAAP measure) is calculated by dividing the product's insurance policy benefits less imputed interest income on the accumulated assets backing the insurance liabilities by insurance policy income. Interest income is an important factor in measuring the performance of longer duration health products. The net cash flows generally cause an accumulation of amounts in the early years of a policy (accounted for as reserve increases), which will be paid out as benefits in later policy years (accounted for as reserve decreases). Accordingly, as the policies age, the benefit ratio will typically increase, but the increase in the change in reserve will be partially offset by the imputed interest income earned on the accumulated assets. The interest-adjusted benefit ratio reflects the effects of such interest income offset. Since interest income is an important factor in measuring the performance of these products, management believes a benefit ratio, which includes the effect of interest income, is useful in analyzing product performance. 4Q11 1Q12 2Q12 3Q12 4Q12 (dollars in millions) Bankers Life Long-term care benefit ratios Earned premium 141.1$ 140.6$ 139.7$ 138.5$ 136.7$ Benefit ratio before imputed interest income on reserves 112.1% 110.9% 121.4% 121.4% 116.7% Interest-adjusted benefit ratio 67.3% 65.5% 75.4% 74.7% 69.0% Underwriting margin (earned premium plus imputed interest income on reserves less policy benefits) 46.1$ 48.5$ 34.4$ 35.0$ 42.3$ Was ington National Supplemental health benefit ratios Earned premium 110.0$ 111.6$ 113.1$ 114.0$ 115.1$ Benefit ratio before imputed interest income on reserves 76.3% 82.4% 77.0% 74.2% 72.9% Interest-adjusted benefit ratio 48.3% 55.1% 50.1% 47.5% 46.6% Underwriting margin (earned premium plus imputed interest income on reserves less policy benefits) 56.6$ 50.1$ 56.5$ 59.8$ 61.4$ Interest-adjusted benefit ratios


 
CNO Financial Group | 4Q2012 Earnings | February 12, 2013 44 Information Related to Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures Operating return measures Management believes that an analysis of return before loss on extinguishment of debt, net realized gains or losses, fair value changes due to fluctuations in the interest rates used to discount embedded derivative liabilities related to our fixed index annuities and increases or decreases to our valuation allowance for deferred tax assets (“net operating income,” a non-GAAP financial measure) is important to evaluate the performance of the Company and is a key measure commonly used in the life insurance industry. Management uses this measure to evaluate performance because these items are unrelated to the Company’s continued operations. This non-GAAP financial measure also differs from return on equity because accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) has been excluded from the value of equity used to determine this ratio. Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful because it removes the volatility that arises from changes in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). Such volatility is often caused by changes in the estimated fair value of our investment portfolio resulting from changes in general market interest rates rather than the business decisions made by management. In addition, our equity includes the value of significant net operating loss carryforwards (included in income tax assets). In accordance with GAAP, these assets are not discounted, and accordingly will not provide a return to shareholders (until after it is realized as a reduction to taxes that would otherwise be paid). Management believes that excluding this value from the equity component of this measure enhances the understanding of the effect these non-discounted assets have on operating returns and the comparability of these measures from period-to-period. Operating return measures are used in measuring the performance of our business units and are used as a basis for incentive compensation. All references to return on allocated capital measures assume a capital allocation based on a 275% targeted risk-based capital at the segment level. Additionally, corporate debt has been allocated to the segments.
