NN Group reports 3Q17 results

Statement of Lard Friese, CEO:

'We are pleased to report another strong set of results for NN Group for the third quarter of 2017. This is the second quarter in which the results of Delta Lloyd have been included in our company's overall performance, after the acquisition of the company in April this year. Apart from the Non-life business, all our businesses performed well. Japan Life and Insurance Europe in particular reported a healthy increase in earnings and continue to achieve strong growth in sales.

At the same time, we continue to strive for efficiency, as reflected in further cost savings of EUR 64 million in the quarter. Our balance sheet remains robust, with a Solvency II ratio of 204% and cash capital position of EUR 1.8 billion. We will redeem EUR 575 million of senior notes which mature tomorrow. Together with the transaction we concluded with Fonds NutsOHRA in April, we will have reduced our financial leverage by approximately EUR 1 billion.

As a financial company with a significant economic footprint, we want to contribute to society; among other things by further integrating ethical, social and environmental components into our core strategy. As of September, NN Group is included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, for both World and Europe. This means NN Group now ranks among the top 10% of the insurance industry group with regard to its sustainability performance.

The integration of the Delta Lloyd and NN operations in the Netherlands and Belgium is progressing well. In the Netherlands, we reached agreements with the trade unions and the Works Councils on the Reorganisation Framework and the guiding principles for integration, that facilitate further implementation of the integration plans. Another important step forward as a combined group was the start of the brand transformation from Delta Lloyd to NN. Furthermore, to optimally serve our customers, new product offers are being developed by the combined front offices. We also reached out to intermediaries on multiple occasions to personally share and explain the rationale and the benefits of the combined group. With the integration process well on its way, we will continue to shape the future strategy of the combined group, and we look forward to sharing the progress we are making on these fronts at our Capital Markets Day on 30 November.'
