    Earnings per diluted share: net income $2.03, operating income* $2.17

 

    Reported net premiums up 1.5 percent; four percent in original currencies

 

    Strong results in U.S. individual mortality and asset-intensive businesses

ST. LOUIS, January 30, 2014

– Reinsurance Group of America, Incorporated (NYSE: RGA), a leading global provider of life reinsurance, reported fourth-quarter net income of $145.0 million, or $2.03 per diluted share, compared with $223.0 million, or $3.00 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter. Operating income* totaled $154.5 million, or $2.17 per diluted share, a difficult comparison versus last year’s $181.8 million, or $2.44 per diluted share. Last year’s fourth-quarter results benefited from a lower effective tax rate and a reserve reduction in Canada. Both periods reflect favorable individual mortality experience in the U.S. and Canada, as well as a strong performance in the U.S. asset-intensive sub-segment. The current period also reflects a strong result in Asia Pacific.
