2 Effective August 1, 2013 we completed the sale of our U.S. annuities business and certain of our U.S. life insurance businesses (collectively, our “U.S. Annuity Business”). As a result of this transaction, we have defined our U.S. Annuity Business as “Discontinued Operations”, the remaining operations as “Continuing Operations”, and the total Discontinued Operations and Continuing Operations as “Combined Operations”.

All EPS measures refer to diluted EPS, unless otherwise stated. Beginning this quarter we are disclosing underlying net income (loss), which replaces operating net income (loss) excluding the net impact of market factors that was reported in prior quarters.
