CARMEL, Ind., Dec. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --CNO Financial Group, Inc.
(NYSE:CNO) today announced that, effective immediately, Charles W. Murphy has
resigned from its Board of Directors. Mr. Murphy has served on the company's
Board since February 2010. Neal Schneider, Chairman of the Board of Directors
said, "On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to thank Charles for his
contributions to the company over the past three years and wish him continued
success in his future endeavors. In view of the Company's significantly
improved financial condition and Paulson & Co.'s reduced ownership interest,
this is a logical time for Charles to step down from the Board. We presently
have an excellent complement of directors and thus at this time we do not plan
to replace Mr. Murphy on our Board."
