HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 7, 2011 — The Hartford (NYSE:HIG) reported net income of $127 million, or $0.24 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011 compared with $619 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010. Core earnings in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $339 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared with $529 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

“The Hartford made good progress in the fourth quarter,” said The Hartford’s Chairman, President and CEO Liam E. McGee. “P&C Commercial pricing continued to firm and margins improved across the board, including a 7% rate increase in Middle Market. Margins are also expanding in Consumer Markets as we shift to a more preferred book of business. Wealth Management is focused on increasing returns and managing risk in this low-rate environment.”

“Capital markets volatility, low interest rates and higher than normal cat and non-cat weather challenged the industry and The Hartford in 2011. Even in this environment, The Hartford is a much stronger and more efficient organization, with a significantly enhanced financial position and risk profile. As we said in December at our Investor Day, we are evaluating our strategy and business portfolio for opportunities to deliver greater value for shareholders. We will be objective and pragmatic about the best ways to achieve this goal,” added McGee.
